The community is conveniently located near Farmer's Market, bird watching and walking in Salt Marsh Park, beaches, shopping and dining on Santa Claus Lane, the breathtaking views of the Carpinteria Bluffs, a bike trail, Tar Pits, the Harbor Seal Preserve and Rookery, the Santa Barbara Vacation Rentals' Sandyland Beach Retreat provides everything you need to enjoy all that beautiful Carpinteria has to offer.

Clean condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. The location is great for a quick walk to the beach or a stroll through town. There was plenty of seating in the dining room and living room and the condo was very clean.

My wife and two sons recently stayed here for a week at Christmas. As noted in other reviews, it is a stones throw from the beach and you can see the ocean from the west side windows. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the Main Street in Carp. The unit was clean and well stocked, including robes and ample towels. Beds were comfortable. The metal staircase feels a bit wobbly and makes a noise when you walk up or down. The rental company was responsive, though did not agree to our request to check in two hours early. There is a very small Weber grill on the patio, though other units have larger grills.

Beautiful Place and Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for a week and LOVED it! The unit was beautifully decorated and had everything we would need! (Pots, pans, utensils, towels, games, even a great selection of DVD's and tar remover to keep our feet clean!) Half a block from the beach and an easy walk into downtown meant we never needed to use our car. Carpinteria is a wonderfully relaxing and safe beach town - cozy restaurants, unique shops and an easy drive to Santa Barbara for bigger shopping and amusements. Thinking we will make this an annual trip - it was PERFECT!!!

A great time and a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this unit! The location, the decor, so well stocked, so comfortable! We recommend without hesitation or reservtation. I've never rented a place before that was so well stocked down to big white robes in the master bedroom to the best beach chairs, beach cooler, tons of movies, and great dishes and pots and pans! Also, we appreciated the local wine, chocolate, and coffee! We want to come back...too bad we are from so far away!
