3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home in a Park Like Setting

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


Carpinteria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Very comfortable and well appointed home on one half acre with lots of trees, grass, beautiful landscape-all the comforts of home without any of the usual responsibilities.

Located just 2 miles from the beach community of Carpinteria and an even shorter distance to the quaint little beach town of Summerland, and about 5 miles from downtown Santa Barbara where you will find 'fine to funky' dining, outdoor cafes, a great zoo, museums, street musicians, beautiful beaches, and plenty of outdoor activities for everyone in the family.

Enjoy relaxing afternoons around the pool and jacuzzi (pool is heated June-Sept. and jacuzzi is 'good to go' year round) on your large redwood deck where you will find plenty of sun or shade to read that book you have not found the time to get around to. There is also an outdoor fire pit for night time camp fires-just steps from the jacuzzi. And new this season, your own beach overlooking the pool (see photos)

If you are a horse lover (even if you aren't!), take in an afternoon polo match played by the top polo players in the world (May-September). This is where Prince William played in the summer of 2011-for what ever THAT'S worth!

Or if you are more inclined to a more active stay, take a run, walk or bike ride on several trails that are near by.

Make this your home away from home for all your get-away trips to beautiful Santa Barbara!

About ed and/or joan

We are a semi-retired couple who travel quite a bit. When in town and our home is rented, we may stay in the cottage that is also on the 1/2 acre property. However, it is in the front part of the property, while the pool, spa, bar-b-que and deck are in the back part of the lot and well secluded with all the privacy our guests desire. In fact, we have often gone an entire week without seeing-or being seen-by our guests, since when we are in Santa Barbara, we are usually out and about from early morning till night time-working or playing.

What makes this house unique

Your own private back yard beach! See pic's.

My family of 5 ( my wife and myself, our 18 years old daughter , 15 years old son and 9 years old daughter ) had a fantastic time in this beautiful, clean and welcoming home.

the house is extremely confortable and cozy . Everything in the house is tasteful , clean , quality: beds, bathroom , kitchen, kitchenware ,…

Whatever you need .. all is in the house ( beach chairs, cooking utensils,outdoor grill, …)

The backward is really wonderful, like a private paradise .. what a beautiful place, to have breakfast each morning , to see our children playing in the fantastic heated pool and to relax with a glass of wine in the evening .

The care and attention that Ed and Joan ( the owners) give to this unique property is very apparent

The house is in a quiet and charming residential neighborhood. It was the perfect location for going to the beach or to the many restaurants in Summerland, Montecito or Santa Barbara.

Ed and Joan are extremely nice, kindly and helpful. They provide us a lot of informations about places to eat and things to do . It is also worth noting that the whole booking experience was totally effortless.. Ed and Joan were a pleasure to work with.

We certainly highly recommend this home to all of our friends.

Our kids did not want to leave wife said me that it was one of our bests summer vacations..

and I .. i just want to be back next year … so we will.…

WOW!!! This was a private resort paradise..

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adult children,their spouses and our infant grandaughter had the most special perfect vacation for a week in the Wimberley's peaceful oasis. Their home is perfect- we enjoyed their beautiful home, ate every meal outdoors in their amazing beautiful back yard private resort environment. The kitchen is perfect with every need for a gourmand to prepare special meals and the LR and Den are comfortable and they offer lots of games and beautiful environs. The immediate environment has many beaches to enjoy, and Summerland is just a short walk... We love traveling with our kiddos and this is one trip that will always be memorable... Thanks Joan and Ed!!

Fantastic home for staying in Santa Barbara/Summerland/Carpenteria area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The location was wonderful - close to beaches, and all Santa Barbara 'burbs. The house itself was spacious, spotless and beautifully decorated. The towels were luxurious, beach towels for the pool area were a wonderful touch. The owners made us feel at home and very comfortable. We had thought we would be going to the beach most of our trip - in between wedding events - but found ourselves drawn to the back yard pool area which was akin to an island Paradise. We were all blown away when we arrived and walked into the back yard and saw the beautiful pool and tropical greenery. Parking is excellent - we had many family members staying elsewhere stop by and spend time with us in this beautiful home and it worked out great as a "central" hub for everyone. We will definitely be staying here again if the opportunity arises.

Cozy family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, immaculate and extremely quiet home. The neighborhood is charming. We felt immediately at rest in this house as it has every amenity you could want. The kids had a blast swimming all day long, and the spa was nice on two of the overcast afternoons. We spent a couple mornings/afternoons at the beach on Santa Claus which is a perfect spot relax, eat a picnic lunch and watch the kids boogie board, and it's just around the corner. The fire pit was great for s'mores, and there are several small fountains around the property that provide great ambient sounds. We took one trip to downtown to go the zoo and the mission, walk State St., but were otherwise completely content to sit in the beautiful surroundings provided by this lovely home. If you want to be in the hustle and bustle of the city you will feel stranded by staying here. However, if you like to savor quiet days lounging on the patio surrounded by a beautiful garden, or just a place to get away with your loved ones for some much needed R&R and time together, this is the place!

10's Across the Board

  • 5 of 5

We travel frequently, and this home was one of our all time favorite places to stay. The house is lovely with comfortable, well kept furnishings and an amazing pool and deck. We could have spent the whole week in the backyard swimming, admiring the flowers, and watching butterflies, hummingbirds and bunnies that visited. The kitchen and house had everything we needed for a week in Santa Barbara. The owners were so helpful when we got a little lost on the way, and seemed happy to answer any questions we had. We were there in high summer and were very comfortable without AC. Wish all rentals were this nice. Would love to stay here again one day.
