Carpinteria house description

CARPINTERIA...maybe it's not really the land that time forgot, but it doesn't take much time here to feel like you've eased back into a vacation from your childhood. Days at the beach are long and lazy, and balmy nights are livened up by walks up and down the main drag, stopping for ice cream, to window shop, or to just watch others stroll by. There's a wide variety of local restaurants, but not a major chain in sight (other than fast food, of course), and if you feel like staying out late, there's usually live music playing nearby somewhere.

We have a comfortable, well stocked house with cute beachy decor. It is the perfect place for a great relaxing vacation. New- this year --- a flat screen TV! We hope you enjoy the outdoors but if your favorite sporting event or something else is on-- the viewing is much improved. Dorrance Depot R&R has the flavor of the past with the accommodations that you want for your family today. Located within two blocks of just about everything, it's a short walk to the beach and wildlife sanctuary in one direction, and Linden Avenue's shops and restaurants in the other. Although it's rumored to have been the old railroad station, today's Dorrance Depot R&R is all about Rest and Relaxation. Unit A, a spacious single story beach cottage, has three bedrooms and two full baths, with a large and open living, dining, and kitchen area. The front porch and small grassy yard, enclosed by a picket fence, connect the inside to the outside, and add to the entertainment possibilities. There's plenty of secure storage space for your portable vacation gear (chairs, bikes, boogie boards, etc.), and the house is fully equipped with kitchen, bath, and linen supplies.

Be our guest!...You'll be counting down the days until you can come back again.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Kathy and I first started coming to Carpinteria in the early '90s, visiting the state campground during the summer months with our friends and a slew of our kids. Even then, we were struck by the seamless and immediate transition into vacation mode that this timeless place inspired. A few years after that, we bought a smaller place near the beach that would allow us to take advantage of the coastal environment on a year-round basis. At the same time, our friends Pat and Terri Collins were making Carpinteria a regular vacation spot with their large group from Bakersfield. We bought our current property in partnership with Pat and Terri, and have now earned our stripes as 'part-time locals', counting many first-name relationships with local business and restauarnt owners as a badge of beach honor!

              Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria:
              The sleepy nature of Carpinteria is due in large part to the fact that it was originally established as an agricultural outpost, not a resort. The current makeup of the town features numerous beautiful flower farms strung along the base of the eastern foothills, a state beach and campground on the southern end of town, and a large wildlife preserve to the north. These elements have acted as a natural barrier to development, leaving Carpinteria as one of the most unchanged and pristine beach communities on the Southern California coast.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              In Carpinteria, the automobile is a non-essential item, and if your pedometer isn't logging more miles than your odometer, you need to rethink how you're spending your vacation time. Our house is located in a unique three block square that is an equally short walk to the beach, the wildlife preserve, the state park, and all restaurants, shops, and amenities. Don't feel like walking anywhere? That's OK, porch-sitting is a well respected and frequently practiced activity. On the other hand, if you just need to get up and go, Santa Barbara is a short 10 mile drive straight up the coast, either using highway 101, or wandering along scenic back roads. Ventura is 15 miles south, and can also be reached either by the express highway 101, or taking the roundabout way along the coast, or through Ojai.
