Home Away From Home
"This continues to be our chosen location for an unwinding vacation that isn't too far from home and yet a world apart. This is a great location in a sleepy coastal town that requires no vehicle to get around to the beach, stores and entertainment, including local breweries. We use it whenever we can and the size is perfect for those visiting family members and friends. We have been vacationing her enough that we feel like locals for our couple of weeks of decompression."

Great price-to-value... Lazy days next to the beach with balcony views of ocean & mountains
"Perfect mid-October shoulder-season getaway for two. Second-floor unit, about 40 feet from front gate to beach, well-maintained and appointed inside and out with reserved off-street parking. Balcony with table, lounge chairs, and gas BBQ is semi-screened for privacy from street and overlooks public boathouse and access area for beach and salt marsh preserve. Pedestrian-friendly downtown Carpinteria is about 1/4 mile away with shops, restaurants, groceries, and Amtrak. This unit was great for lounge-chair laziness and was also our base for day trips to Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez Valley, and Ojai. While it didn't bother us, travelers who are sensitive to occasional street noise should know that the public street/boathouse area in front of the unit is active throughout the day. The unit's bathroom/laundry can only be accessed through master bedroom."

"Great location. Great value. Place is really cute and open design doesn't feel cramped. A short block watch to the beach. Condo comes with beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards and various beach accessories. Condo itself is well equipped, especially the kitchen. Laundry on site. Short walk into town for night life and grocery store and shorter walk to Amtrak station/trolley stop. Trolley takes you all around town. Inexpensive bus service to tourist spots from Santa Barbara to Ojai to Ventura. A nice hike to the seal rookery by trail or along the beach. The Salt Marsh right across the street provides interesting views and a great place for short walks. This is simply a great place to stay. Mike Farris is a joy to work with, responsive to questions (damage deposit returned within days). We stayed a month and will definitely be back."

"I have always wanted to spend more time in Carpenteria, and was thrilled to find this terrific cottage. Every detail was done to perfection, from the interior to the landscaping, to the outdoor shower. The location is ideal and you will not find a more charming place to stay. We will gladly return whenever possible. The owner is great to work with. Next time we will try to rent the cottage next door as well and bring more of the family!"
