Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom (King Platform 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.

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.

This is a great affordable condo in the sweetest little beach town.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is as described. It was spacious enough for our family of four and had all the necessary things we needed to be comfortable and feel at home in the space. It's so very close to the beach, delicious food, a great playground and park and much more. The host was responsive and proactive in their communications. We would definitely stay here again.

Cozy

  • 4 of 5

This is a cozy apartment close to the beach, downtown and shopping. This was our hub as well for Santa Barbara which was not far at all. A suggestion I would make is that it could do with a bit more lighting as there was really only the front window for light.

Owner's Response: Downstairs we have a lamp, light over the kitchen table, light in the kitchen, light over the lounger under the steps. I think the renter was suggesting something where the couch is located. I am actually having something built that will bring more light to that area. Thanks for the input.

Great location, very clean and comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to town and a block from the beach, you can hear the waves! It is a very clean, comfortable, well stocked condo at a great price! Help is a phone call away. One evening I locked my phone and entry code in the condo, the owner returned my call within minutes. I highly recommend this unit and hope to return.

Perfect for a single traveler, lookin for a time to refresh.

  • 5 of 5

The location in terms of recreation and lifestyle is excellent. The low key and well kept atmosphere of the unit, made it feel like a home away from home. Hopefully I can visit again in the near future!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

The unit was welcoming and clean. The owner's Mark & Michelle are also very welcoming and left helpful instructions for the place and great suggestions for dining out. With being just a block away from the beach, there is nothing like rolling out of bed in pajamas and walking barefoot to the beach. Even on a sunny windy day, the ocean was warm and wonderful to take a dip in. It was also awesome seeing kids ride their bikes around town in safety. That's not something that I've see in a long time. Absolutely fell in love with Carpenteria!
