Beachcomber - 'Toes in the Sand' on Carpinteria Beach

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Newly remodeled with classic vintage charm, this beach front Cape Cod style masterpiece possesses everything that defines a perfect seaside vacation getaway.

Breezy and bright rooms feature traditional appointments such as soaring tongue and groove ceilings, bead board, wainscoting, wide molding, and distressed wood plank floors. Contemporary amenities and all new furnishings offer an effortlessly modern yet exceptionally comfortable experience.

Restful colors of sand and surf play against freshly painted white surfaces in nearly every space. Throughout the home are collections of vintage signs, found treasures from local antique stores, and photographs of the home itself, reminding guests just how special this retreat really is. Crisp and clean, the ambiance in every room captures the true Cape Cod feel.

From the ground level, walk up the stairs to the side entry door. A wonderful oceanfront family room opens to the deck. Adjacent is a porch swing, table and Adirondack chairs for lazy afternoons. A massive window seat is large enough for sleepy kids to nod off into dreamland and wake up to morning sunshine through large windows. A removable hammock suspended in the window seat is just one more fun addition to this family friendly home.

Step down into the 'Bunk room' with a wayfaring theme. The feel here is much like a cabin on a ship, but large in size and a great spot for the teens to have their own space. A Loft with full size bed is tucked neatly away high above the room. A full Bathroom makes this a perfect self contained private space.

A comfortable bedroom with queen-size bed and a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom complete the accommodations on this middle level.

Upstairs is the main salon. A fireplace with seashell studded hearth fills the entire room with a warm glow. The kitchen, with smooth marble counters, is fresh and new and outfitted fully with more quaint seashell themes displayed in dishes and serving pieces. A pine dining table is tucked into the large curved bay window area that is a unique feature of this delightful home.

Through a French door, the upper deck is perched above the beach, offering a great 'birds eye' view to enjoy all the activity going on below. Enjoy sweeping coastal views from sunrise to sunset. Convince the grill master in the group to cook up something special on the barbecue, and dine al fresco for every meal.

The master suite is on this upper level. With more windows and soaring ceilings, the romantic feel of this room is palpable. A seating area with linen chairs faces another shell adorned fireplace, and French doors offer the opportunity to invite a breeze in to cool things down on warm summer days. The master bathroom suite, in true vintage style, has a porcelain claw foot bathtub and black and white hexagonal floor tiles underfoot.

Rounding out the amenities of this perfect beach bungalow is a large basement game room, perfect for restless kids and fun loving adults! The pool table can be converted to a ping-pong table to offer variety. A bar is perfect for onlookers to keep score and a small refrigerator can be filled with favorite beverages and snacks. An interesting fact about the home: the family friendly movie 'Chilly Christmas' was filmed at Beachcomber, so be sure to set aside one evening for movie night, and gather together to watch the DVD provided at the home, just for fun!

The city of Carpinteria is a quaint, small beach town. It offers everything one would expect of a city built for beach lovers, surfers and anyone seeking a slower pace of life. Small antique stores, surf shops and restaurants dot the main street of Linden Avenue. It's not all casual, as fine diners can enjoy an upscale night at Sly's with fine wine to accompany a world class gourmet hamburger or healthy 'catch of the day'. Carpinteria Beach is known as 'The World's Safest Beach', offering long, wide stretches of pristine white sandy beach and varying surf for all levels of ocean enthusiasts.

There is no more perfect place to enjoy the lazy days of summer, but no matter what season one chooses, Beachcomber is a coastal dream filled with possibility that begins with your toes in the sand! Perfect!
