Property description

*****Bookings from Apr 1, 2015-Nov 30, 2015 will be booked via my Property Mgmt Company. Please go to www.vrbo.com/664746 instead, to check for availability and to book. Thank you! *****
Once you visit, you'll want to come back again and again! Carpinteria is a delightful, small town, with stunning views of ocean and mountains. Antique stores, unique restaurants, coffee shops and wildlife viewing are all in easy walking distance, and you'll enjoy 'The World's Safest Beach' just a block away from the Condo.

Furnished to help you relax and feel pampered, the condominium also has almost anything you could need to prepare a feast, if you wish! The large bay window brings in plenty of sun, and the loft bedroom has its own window to hear the ocean crash as you fall asleep.

An outdoor shower and washers/dryers are steps from the unit for easy clean-up, and gorgeous Carpinteria State Beach is just across the street. You also won't want to miss the weekly street market!

Just as my family, friends and I have all found, Carpinteria will cast its spell on you as soon as you arrive, and you'll be planning your next visit even before you leave! Please come enjoy my hospitality!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am a retired U.S. Air Force Nurse Practitioner. After living all over the world, I moved back to California in 2001. Even better, my parents moved here shortly after I did! I've discovered I truly enjoy welcoming families to my vacation condo, and I try to keep the condo as cozy and welcoming as possible--exactly what I appreciate when I go on vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria:
Carpinteria is just the most wonderful place! My family and I discovered it mostly by accident, and we have such fabulous memories of all the times we have stayed there. Somehow, the town feels quaint and festive, friendly and safe. It's a delight to be able to walk to have breakfast at a sidewalk cafe, buy groceries, browse the weekly farmer's market or get a book at the library! And I haven't even mentioned Carpinteria's jewel--the beach! Who wouldn't want to own a place in this lovely spot??

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Every time I open my door, I feel I've left the busy world behind, and I can't wait to settle in with a good cup of coffee and a great book! The beach is peaceful in the morning, with a few people out for a walk with the dog or to pick up shells. By early afternoon, families are happily ensconced on blankets, children shrieking with delight as they play in the waves. Late afternoon is a favorite time of day to enjoy the breezes and the sun on the bed upstairs, catching a cat nap or writing a thank-you note. And you don't want to miss the sun setting over the water! Even the distant oil platforms add magic, with lights winking on in the dusk. I keep the kitchen stocked with all the necessary tools to make dinner, or I take a walk to Tony's Restaurant, Corktree Cellars or any of my other local favorites. Tucked in at night, it doesn't take long before I'm off to my dreams, especially when I can hear the waves crashing on the beach in the distance....
