About the owner: I am a retired dentist that is married to my wife, Denise, for over 30 years. We have loved coming to Carpinteria for the span of our marriage and the upbringing of our 3 children. We recently purchased this beach house and renovated it and we are excited to share it with you to enjoy Carpinteria and associated areas as we have.
Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria: I've been vacationing in Carpinteria since the early 1970's. I fell in love with this town as a teenager and I have been coming back ever since. My family and I vacationed every summer here in the 1980's and we purchased our first vacation property in the mid 1990's. Since then we travel to Carpinteria from the central valley of California as often as we can. We purchased this beach house in August of 2008 and spent a year renovating it. We think it is a fantastic property strategically located in Carpinteria like few other summer rental properties. You rarely have to get in your car because of its great location.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Shopping at the local Von's Supermarket or Rite-Aid Drug Store are a short walk from our beach house's front door. Access to local shopping at clothing boutiques, antique stores, salons and surf shops are all within 3 blocks of our location. Over 15 restaurants offering a variety of California cuisine can be reached on foot within minutes.
