              • Tax Rate 12%

              Notes:

              So sorry ... No pets allowed because of allergies.

              FYI : it is in a peaceful quiet area (except for the train going by occasionally) therefore it is not a 'party house'. THERE IS A CLEANING FEE OF $40.00 - $70.00 Depending on the number of people and length of stay.

              There is a $350.00 security booking deposit to secure the booking with the balance to be paid by check or cash at the time of arrival.

              Address for the deposit is P.O. BOX 1532 SUMMERLAND CA 93067.

              Unfortunately no credit/debit accepted. There is a 12% City of Carpinteria Bed Tax for bookings under 30 days
