. Carpinteria is a special place unlike any other..a quiet beach town without large hotels or resorts, yet close to larger cities...12 miles to Santa Barbara...17 miles to Ventura...22 miles to Ojai...84 miles to Los Angeles. You can leave your car in the covered carport and walk to town for shopping and restaurants...or walk to the Amtrak station and take the train to Santa Barbara for the zoo, the Mission, Stearns Wharf...or take a meditative walk through the Salt Marsh...or hike to see the seals on the bluff... or rent a bike and visit Rincon or Padaro Lane. If you decide to drive, have lunch in Ojai and rent a boat on Lake Cachuma or check out Solvang and the wineries.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My husband and I live in Chico where he is a professor of Economics and I am an author. My latest novel is 'Venice Beach.'
Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria: With retirement looming, we wanted to be able to spend some of the year in a beach town and searched the California coast. When we found Carpinteria three years ago, we knew we had found the perfect place. We wanted a quiet complex at the beach and easy walking distance to town. We have friends and family in southern California and we wanted to be able to take the train to visit them and to take advantage of all the region has to offer without having to drive.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: After two years of looking for a place to buy, we fell in love with this condo. It is the only unit in the building that has a full bedroom as well as a loft bedroom. Since we stay here several weeks a year ourselves, the condo is a home, not just a rental property. We want our guests to feel the same way.
