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.

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.

Clean, practical and relaxed place just a block from the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday staying two weeks at this place. The condo was practical and well equipped for four (including beach chairs and boogie boards for the kids) with a comfortable master bed. The location was perfect on a quiet street one block from the beach and everything in Carpinteria within walking distance. The kids loved playing at the beach, I found the morning walks along the shore south to the harbour seal colony just wonderful and my husband took the car to the tennis courts in Santa Barbara :) We really appreciated that the shoreline was accessible and without buildings for several kilometers. The little outdoor gym close to the beach was fun and we enjoyed trying a new restaurant most of the days, a favourite was the Thai Siam restaurant at 10 minutes walking distance. Carpinteria was also a good starting point for day trips to shopping and fantastic nature. The trip to the quiet Santa Cruz Island was astonishing: native foxes, beautiful views, hundreds of dolphins, occasional sea lions and migrating gray whales and - beyond all - a family of transient orcas, playing around the ship until the sun went down on the way back.

Rocky Start.....Smooth Finish. Overall, Great.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. However, our first impression of the unit wasn't exactly what we were expecting. Apparently there was some confusion in the cleaning schedule and when we showed up, the place still needed to be cleaned. Phoned the owner and was immediately contacted to remedy the situation. Cleaning service came in and within a couple of hours the place was immaculate. The owner even worked with us to find a solution to the situation to ensure our satisfaction-- professional and timely. That's what you want.

The unit is smaller, but comfortable. The upstairs area fit our pack & play with room to spare. Could easily fit a family of 4 with 2 small children with the creative space-saving sleeping solutions. The best part about it is the location. Close to the water and downtown Carp. Nice quiet place with a super comfy bed. Would we stay again? Absolutely.

Owner's Response: This was the first time in 5 years that my crew missed a cleaning date. The guest called me immediately and we were able to jump on this quickly and resolve the issue. We take a lot of pride to make sure it is a good experience for our guest and I felt so bad that the first impression was not to their satisfaction. The condo is in a great location and it looks like it made up for the initial impression.

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.
