                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Our family found this vacation spot by accident after spending fun summers in San Diego and wanting a place closer to home. A friend recommended Carpinteria. We tried it once and fell in love immediately. We spent a few seasons renting and finally decided we wanted to buy a place and make it our own.

                      Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria:
                      One of the nicest aspects about living in Carpinteria is that it is flat so walking is easy and biking is even better. There is also a cute little public trolley in town that takes you all around for 50 cents -- what a deal. I love the monthly Flea Market at the local Carpinteria Museum. My favorite purchases are antique jewelry and purses. They also have beautiful flowers and vintage housewares. The pizza at Giovanni's is the best anywhere and so is the local ice cream store on Linden. It's fun attending all the local activities hosted by the city. Small town charm is so hard to come by these days. And if you want a taste of the big city, then Santa Barbara is conveniently only 15 minutes north of Carp and wineries in the Santa Ynez family are an hour away. You have the peace and quiet of a small town but access to great museums, restaurants, theater and shops if you want it.

Small town charm is so hard to come by these days. Our guests love surfing, swimming, kayaking, and fishing at the beach. Others prefer skateboarding at the park In Santa Barbara or renting tandem style bikes. Still others prefer rock climbing, hiking in the local mountains. Adventurous ones schedule boat trips for whale watching on the ocean or visiting the Channel Islands which leave from the Santa Barbara Harbor.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      While at the Beach House the first thing you notice is that you are walking distance to the beach, the salt water marsh preserve and to downtown Linden Avenue. We take the big beach wagon in the garage and fill it up with chairs, cooler, umbrella, boogie boards and take off to the beach. Afterwards we return to take outdoor showers and enjoy the backyard for a barbecue but first cocktails on the upper balcony watching beautiful sunsets or taking in the gorgeous mountain views on the back side. Cooking on the antique stove in the big kitchen that seats eight is fun -- so is discovering treasures in the 'Sugar Shack' the original structure to the Beach House built by the settlers that came out to Carpinteria from the midwest. Sometimes we take the train to Santa Barbara, the depot is two blocks from our house. Many out of state guests enjoy the fair weather the area has to offer during the off-season. When it's cold and snowy in Canada or elsewhere in the United States the gentle weather locally attracts tourist who enjoy off-season rates and no crowds.
