                    We've rented this house twice, and it is everything for which we could wish. I love that it's owner operated, and I constantly pause to view the many family pictures showing decades of their special memories in this special house. Communicating with the owners couldn't be easier, and we especially adore Matt, who will meet you at the house and who works for the city of Carp. It's amazing how well-cared for this house it, especially since it is right on the beach and subject to the elements, but it is even better this year that two years ago when we stayed! The garden is charming, and the furnishings are spot-on beachy. There's plenty of utensils and cookware, linens, and little extras to give the comfort of home. We are so grateful to have had the privilege of renting this little piece of paradise.

                    I booked this home for my daughters 18th birthday, she had invited 8 of her closet friends to celebrate it. The house fit all of us very comfortably and the owners equipped the house with pretty much everything you need to prepare meals. I loved that everything we wanted to do was in walking distance. The weather couldn't of been any better, 80's quite unusual for January. The family were always ready to answer any questions you may have and are very nice and accommodating. Our 4 days there couldn't of been any better. I highly recommend especially if your trying to accommodate a large group.

                    "Right on the Sand" aptly describes this hideaway within walking distance to all the amenities of the resort town of Carpinteria. If you tire of the beach, you can jump the train to visit the sights in nearby Santa Barbara. A perfect family vacation spot. The property is represented well in the listing description. Lunch at The Spot is a must. For a more upscale lunch, don't forget to try Zookers on Linden Ave. Ready for a repeat visit!!!

                    The location couldn't be better... we were able to walk to everything.. and who can resist being right on the sand? Set the backdrop for a great family vacation, with 3 generations in attendance. Absolutely perfect!

                    We had a wonderful time in Carpinteria! The house on the beach was perfect- we would do it all again in a heartbeat! The house had everything we needed, and it was ideally located- within easy walk to downtown, and smack dab on the beach! A memorable vacation in every way!

                    This is a great rental in Carpinteria. In addition to being literally on the beach, the location is close to town and to a wonderful playground for the kids. The house is very clean and well-cared for, well-stocked with kitchen supplies and linens, and is comfortable. The owners are extremely gracious and helpful. I felt it was kid-friendly. We are hoping to return!

                    We spent a week for Thanksgiving at this rental. Our family rents a different beach house along the coast every year for Thanksgiving and this was one of our best vacations! The kids had a great time. It was such a great house. Everything we needed was right there.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1953

                  About the owner: I have been enjoying the Carpinteria beach all my life and still find it as one of the best places to be. I am still thrilled to see the marine life such as the coastal bottle nose dolphin, harbor seals, brown pelicans and so many other shore birds that are always around. I enjoy ocean wildlife photography and do have some examples on the walls of our family beach house. The beach is always changing making something new to see each visit.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria:
                  We have had this house in our family since it was built in 1953. Although it has undergone four remodels over the years, it still has the original adobe walls made right in Carpinteria. The house has a charm that is its own.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The property is a beach house, not a condo. This makes it more spacious, a lot quieter, with private patios and its own palm frond umbrella in front. The kitchen area is quite large so there is adequate space for a gathering in the kitchen dining area to enjoy. We have rented the house as a vacation rental for decades and have some friends that have rented every year for over 20 years, a testament to its appeal.
