Beautiful Place and Beautiful Location!
"Our family of 5 stayed for a week and LOVED it! The unit was beautifully decorated and had everything we would need! (Pots, pans, utensils, towels, games, even a great selection of DVD's and tar remover to keep our feet clean!) Half a block from the beach and an easy walk into downtown meant we never needed to use our car. Carpinteria is a wonderfully relaxing and safe beach town - cozy restaurants, unique shops and an easy drive to Santa Barbara for bigger shopping and amusements. Thinking we will make this an annual trip - it was PERFECT!!!"

"Great place to stay. Close to everything. Beautiful clean house, very private. House has everything you need, just like home. Train near by did not bother us at all, does not run often. Looking forward to staying there again. Wonderful find, recommended to everyone, you will not be sorry. Also, Stella was great."

"Had a few days off and decided to "stay-cation" in Carp (we live about 60 mins south) with my husband and 6-year-old son. From the moment we walked into the cottage, this admitted "hotel snob" was blown away with the attention to detail, high-end finishes/appliances and charm. We immediately felt at home and had a fantastic couple of days going to the beach, playing board games (Yahtzee!) and just hanging out as a family. Perfect location, about a 4 minute walk to the beach, if that. We have never been to Carp during the week and felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. Any questions I had for Kat were answered promptly. Oh and our son LOVED the bunk bed. He slept later than he ever does at home! My only "minus" (and this is just a personal phobia/allergy thing) is that the landscaping is mostly plants that attract bees, and there were a LOT of them around -- but if you don't have a problem with happy, busy honeybees, don't even worry about it. They really couldn't care less about us humans, but as someone with an allergy, it was a little too many for me to be comfortable sitting outside surrounded by them. But we're still coming back next year, and hopefully for many years to come. Thanks Kat for creating such a wonderful haven!"

Older Couple from Pasadena Falls in Love with Carp!
"What a great place to stay! It's an absolutely beautiful place, and within walking distance of numerous places to eat. Easy drive to others. The beach (long, clean beach with easy free parking––in late September anyway––just down Linden. We're even thinking of taking the train up someday; the little Amtrak station is just a few blocks away. Inside the rental, lovely kitchen, furniture, comfortable bed, really nice reading lights bedside, beautiful bathroom. I'd like to stay longer next time--and come here as often as possible. What a great little town. (I'm afraid I've gotten a little tired of Santa Barbara.) Parking lot just across the street, and a great coffeehouse on the other side of the parking lot! Oh, and stop by the library on your way home: terrific, staffed used bookstore with really fun bargains. (And Clementine's for dinner. Just saying.)"
