Step onto the sand from the large ocean-facing deck of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath family beach house. Located just 10 miles south of Santa Barbara, CA in the popular resort community of Carpinteria, this house sits on the 'World's Safest Beach' sheltered by the beautiful Santa Barbara Channel Islands. Looking out the back, one views the newly developed Salt Marsh Reserve with its 230 acres of water wildlife with the backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The beach offers safe swimming, sand castle building, surf fishing, seashell collecting, and long walks to view sea lions lounging on the rocks and dolphins playing beyond the surf.
The town of Carpinteria, founded in 1863, is noted for its friendliness, small town charm and the agricultural production of avocados, lemons, and flowers. The downtown area is within easy walking distance from the beach and offers a variety of antique, clothing, and specialty shops, restaurants, grocery stores and a movie theater. Points of interest include the historical museum, the world's largest Torrey Pine tree, the Carpinteria Tar Pits where the Chumash built their canoes as well as the famous 'cook your own steak' Palms restaurant and a community swimming pool. Excellent surfing is located only 5 minutes away by car. Small boats can be launched nearby to access ocean fishing. Nearby Santa Barbara offers charter boats for deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving or simply viewing the coastline. The airport is located only 30 minutes away in Santa Barbara, and the Amtrak train makes several stops daily in Carpinteria.

Grandparents, parents and grandsons, ages 4 and 6, ALL enjoyed this great BEACH COTTAGE!!! Even without the perfect weather in February, we enjoyed the view of the ocean over the sand dune from the huge porch, playing in the ocean and walking to town:) Though a well maintained and updated beach cottage, it was a family friendly home that accomodated bringing in the sand from a FUN filled day at the beach!! Jody was very helpful, organized and communicated quickly to all our questions... THANK YOU!!! We will be returning;)!
This beach house in Carpinteria sits right on the sand at the "World's Safest Beach". As advertised this really is the safest beach with shallow water, no big waves and no rip currents. Plus you have the bonus of being right next to a city life guard tower. But if you want to surf there are great spots within walking distance from the house. The house has all the amenities you will ever need. Lots of comfortable space to sleep and space for family gatherings. The best place to make lasting memories for the whole family. Come and enjoy a great vacation at this Carpinteria beach house.
Our family stayed at the beach house on short notice, and for far too short a stay. We will definitely be back. Jody does a great job of communicating with prospective renters. The house itself is spotless, and very well laid out. Plenty of extra amenities like laundry facilities, toys and beach chairs made for an enjoyable time at the beach. The kitchen has recent upgrades as well. Note that if you want to see the beach for yourself, the Carpinteria beach cam view looking east (check it out on the web) looks out directly in front of the house.
