Recent Carpinteria reviews
"Just returned from a week in Carpenteria. The condo is beautiful, exactly as pictured. Location is great - steps from the beach, views of the ocean, mountains and salt marsh. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy the week. Oh, and the heated pool and spa were also a delight."

"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!"

"The trip was originally planned for my husband, myself, and our 2 year old son. Then my husband got stuck at work so I took along a friend and her two year old son. The home was clean and well appointed. It's a 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and a short walk into town. My friend and I enjoyed dinner on the lovely front yard table each night. We had a wonderful trip and look forward to staying there again."

"The rental manager was extremely nice and accommodating. The location was amazing. We loved Carpinteria as a self-proclaimed sleepy beach town. Thoroughly enjoyed riding rental bikes everywhere (no road rage), ample parking, the gracious people, seal rookery and long walks on the wonderful beach.
The rental unit, itself, was somewhat under par: It it was cluttered with beach toys for kids, which is great if you have kids, but leaves little room for anything else; coin-operated laundry facility downstairs was not very handy; the kitchen was also cluttered, though well-equipped with old toasters etc., yet not conducive to cooking nice meals; and, of the three nicer restaurants, one is always closed for January, one is very over-priced (and one was closed for construction during our stay).
Four stars because of the amazing location and so we thus adapted to the other shortcomings. I think any more than 2 people would be a tight fit."
