Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom (King Size Bed) + Convertible and Full Size Bed, 1 Bath, sleeps (4)

This retreat is perfect for couples and small families who have the desire to get away from it all. Come to one of the last Beach Communities that still offers the small town feel. We are known as the 'Worlds safest Beach'. Just 12 miles South of Santa Barbara and 90 miles North of LA. A winning combination of location, quality and price!

Why stay in a hotel/motel, or the suburbs that look like any other, when you can bask in the laid back atmosphere of a Beach community, with the smell of the ocean, less than one block to the beach?

The Condo is located in the quiet section of Carpinteria, just steps away from the beach, Bird Sanctuary, Dining and downtown shops, including our own local farmers market. We remodeled in Sept 2010, so be one of the first to enjoy this unit. Leave your car and associated traffic/parking worries behind. We even offer off street reserved parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I stayed here for a week. We had a wonderful time in Carpinteria. The town is so relaxing with many great restaurants of all types and a mellow beach to enjoy at our leisure. The condo was a perfect match for us. It was clean and comfortable with all the comforts of home. The beach and the downtown area were both within walking distance of the condo. We would like to come back again next year.

Excellent location if you want to be close to beach and also walk to restaurants and shops

  • 4 of 5

Marks place was perfect for our family! We were comfortable for the two nights we stayed. Mark even gave us the opportunity to check in very early but unfortunately we were not able to take advantage of it. Condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Would highly recommend !

Great carpinteria rental

  • 4 of 5

We just spent one months in this comfortable accomodation. It was fully outfitted, and neat and clean. Loved being just over a block from the sea. The beach is clean , child friendly , and great for walks.

There were two of us , so we had plenty of room. There is a bed downstairs, but if a visitor has mobility problems, they might find it a bit

awkward to climb the stairs to the bedroom and washroom.

Our only complaints were that that the place could do with more lighting, and the water pressure upstairs was not great.

I would however, rent here again

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! The complex just installed a new Hot Water Heater, so I will check with the water pressure you mentioned. I will also contact you about the lighting and where you would like to see us add fixtures. We always appreciate the feedback. Our goal is to make your experience a great one in Carpinteria. As always the location is spectacular for the value. You can park your car at our complex and walk less than a block to the ocean, and just a further walk to the town for the shops, restaurants, bars and stores.

Beach oasis

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in this property. It fit us perfectly. The place was clean, organized and had everything we needed. It was in great working condition. And, we listened to the ocean waves during the night. We took the 2 minute walk to the beach and hung out. The sand area was nice and spacious. The views are beautiful. The place is very close to the main street in Carpinteria where there are great restaurants and stores. This place was perfect for out family.

Amazing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time. This comfortable condo is all about LOCATION!!!! We were right next to the beach and could walk to so many amazing food and shopping locations! Per the owners recommendation we enjoyed several of them. Mark's communication and set-up is so user friendly, I felt like he put a lot of thought into ensuring his guests are comfortable and know how to work everything in the home and town. Uber in this area was easy and fast to find for when we ventured farther. If we were not visiting to attend a wedding there would have been no need to even have a car. By far the best value in the area.

Owner's Response: I have been very fortunate to have some great people that have visited our place in Carpinteria. It truly is about the location of our place that makes it stand out. Just arrive, park your car, and you can go from the Beach to Shopping to Restaurants to the Grocery Store. You can even walk to the Amtrak station and catch a quick ride to Santa Barbara. We do keep our prices very reasonable to give families an economical solution to staying in a Beach Town. Thanks for the Review!

Great Value and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your Sandpiper condo over the weekend! It was the perfect location for our event in Carpinteria. Everything you need was within walking distance and having the beach so close was great! Though we were out most of the day at our event, your condo provided us with a comfortable and clean place to relax in the evening. Thank you for being so responsive, easy to work with and a fantastic host. We both plan on returning with our spouses.

Car: recommended

Shopping is within walking distance as are several restaurants. Park your car and forget it. There are two supermarkets and a Blockbuster video. Walk to the downtown area and explore the small shops. Have a bite to eat at one of the many little restaurants. Enjoy walking and relaxing on the beach. Explore sea life in the tidal rocks. At the south end of the park you can walk along the cliffs of Carpinteria. The Carpinteria Seal Sanctuary is located below the cliffs. The Rincon surfing area is located just south of Carpinteria. For dinner there are family and more expensive restaurants including BBQ. Santa Barbara is a few minutes away via US Highway 101, Amtrak or local transit. The Amtrak station is located adjacent to downtown with regularly scheduled trains to and from Santa Barbara. Local transit service is available at the Santa Barbara Amtrak station (very inexpensive). You can visit the Santa Barbara Zoo and even have a picnic there.
