About Leah Dabney

This property is owned and operated by a family local to Carpinteria. In 2006 we completely renovated, down to the framework, our property which was originally built in the 1940's as a 4-unit apartment building with attached retail space. One and two-bedroom guest suites have been offered since Summer of 2007.

Leah Dabney purchased this apartment in 2006

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and newly remodeled. It's a short walk to the beach and the main strip of restaurants/shops. We had a nice relaxing visit and highly recommend.

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to California for a wedding in Santa Barbara. Originally I was looking for places to stay in SB, but found this great rental and I'm so glad I did. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and modern. It's in a great location: nestled in a quiet neighborhood, but you can easily walk to shops, restaurants, and the beach. My only suggestion would be to provide beach towels! We absolutely fell in love with the town of Carpinteria and the people who live there.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from an amazing 4th of July Weekend at Watermark. The place is so very well appointed right on down to these great towels I need to buy for my house. Fans in all the rooms, plus air conditioner that keeps the place very comfortable. Perfect location right off of Linden making an easy walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, etc. As an added bonus, there was a fold up wagon in the closet so that we could easily carry chairs, umbrellas, towels, food etc to the beach. Leah clearly thought of everything.

I have been renting VRBO for a long time and I can honestly say that Watermark is right at the top of my list. I will certainly be returning here again in the future. I can't say enough about the location, and the property. Absolutely perfect.

Great spot for extended business trip

  • 5 of 5

I had to satay in Carp for over a week for an engagement with a local business and found this property as an alternative to local hotels. What a find! The interior seems brand new and while I am usually very picky, I found everything to be clean and comfy. The unit had everything I needed and then some in the kitchen, plenty of extra cabinet space. The bed was really comfortable and I ended up getting solid sleep each night. I could have easily stayed here with my wife if on vacation as the unit has tons of room for two.

The locations is right in the heart of Carp. You can walk to anything. The beach is just a couple blocks away so I made sure to walk down each am before heading to work to soak up the great ocean air to start my day. I will stay here each time I visit Carp from here on out.

I am such a snob about places to stay and this place met all my needs and left me looking forward to my next trip. Just wish I found it sooner!

Older Couple from Pasadena Falls in Love with Carp!

  • 5 of 5

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.)
