"We rented this house for a week surrounding the Cate School graduation. It was a perfect spot for our extended family, ranging in age from 18 to 85. The house is perfectly located for walking on the beach or to restaurants in town. Carpinteria is a wonderful town and the beach is fantastic. Plenty of space inside and two great outside sitting areas plus the beach. Plenty of privacy. Everything was well maintained and the kitchen and grill had everything you could need to cook. Great communication with the owner. Can't say enough great things about our stay."

"Having just returned from 19 days at this amazing cottage, sometimes words do not do justice when expressing how wonderful an experience is. Barb and Terry are wonderful people and hosts making sure all the comforts of home are at one's fingertips. I adored the cottage, the beautiful design and ambience. And the super comfy bed!! I will return and recommend this as a perfect place to stay when in the Carmel area. Thank you Barb & Terry."

A Wonderful Home Nestled in a Quiet Cambria Neighborhood
"This beautiful home was the perfect set-up for both of our families. It's a great for entertaining guests. The layout of the home was layed out very nicely with an "air of openness" which allowed us to bond and connect to each other well throughout our stay there. Having the few set of stairs coming in on both sides of the 1st floor made it convenient for us to access the 2nd floor. The artwork was very unique with classy glass sculptures, classic pieces of artwork and decorative seashells that added to the restful and pleasant atmosphere. The couches were very welcoming and oh so comfortable. The kitchen was big enough and had plenty of counter space to have all 7 of us cooking together one night! The master bedroom and the other main bedroom had firm mattresses which allowed us to sleep comfortably. It was a treat for our girls to sleep together in the twin bedroom. They had such a wonderful time. The bathrooms were beautiful and very clean.
We went on a nice hike along Fiscalini Ranch trail near the home. It was a beautiful day for us to enjoy the "woodsy" area as well as the scenic view of the ocean. We were also able to catch some glimpses whales way out there! A great beach to visit is Moonstone Beach. It wasn't crowded and quite nice to walk on.
The owners, Cynthia and Dwight were very nice, responsive and helpful. We definitely had a enjoyable experience here! Thank you!"

"What a great retreat for families. With 4 children under the age of 6, we couldn't ask for more. Very comfortable, without being too fancy for the kids. Fenced in yard is great for kids and pets. They almost had as much fun in the yard as they did the beach. ALMOST. The beach is close and could walk if not so much beach toys, chairs, blankets, etc. Easier to drive. The Aquarium tickets are always a hit for all ages. We don't go out to dinner too much. Too expensive for large groups. Love BBQ's and spaghetti dinners together. Feel at home here."
