About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

We are on the corner of Sandyland Road and Elm St. in the La Cabana complex, just across the street from the beach-

We take meticulous care of this condo and furnish it as we would our own home, as we like to stay here at times ourselves.

Our unit is a completely and beautifully renovated 2 bdrm condo in quiet complex- Pergo floors, granite counter tops, newly painted sky blue, new tile bathroom floor. It is full of light, and is peaceful and comfortable.

You can walk across the street to Carpinteria Beach, one of the loveliest, cleanest beaches at the South Central Coast.

We have a year round heated swimming pool at complex, beautiful landscaping, gas grill, and the complex is meticulously maintained.

The wildlife refuge is a short walk and has excellent birding. The seal rookery is down the beach. Dolphins and whales swim offshore. Carpinteria is a lovely beachside town with good restaurants, shops, parks, artists' shops, antique stores, and palm tree lined streets.

Santa Barbara is 15 minutes up Rt. 101, with many family activities and attractions: shops; zoo; botanical gardens; bike paths; watersports, art museum, natural history museum . Summerland is a great nearby town for antiquing and many wineries are nearby.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: We live in Santa Barbara, and love the beautiful climate and outdoors we are fortunate to enjoy. We moved here from the Boston area, so it's especially nice in the winter. We have 3 boys, a youngest daughter, and all of us love coming to Carpinteria and going to the beach when we get down to our condo!

Why Carpinteria, CA, USA:
We loved the town of Carpinteria at first sight. It has a small town, community feeling, and reminded us a little of New England. We enjoy the tall palms lining the streets, expansive beaches, local shops of all kinds, warm breezes, and relaxed and friendly people. We live up in 101 in Santa Barbara but come to Carpinteria regularly because we enjoy it. There are many places to explore: wetland preserve, seal rookery, enormous greenhouses (see the orchids). The foothills are also fun to explore.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is in a small complex, La Cabana, across the street from Carpinteria Beach. Most of the condos are owner occupied, so it does not feel like the usual vacation resort. We overlook the courtyard from our second floor unit. We can go out the door in the morning, and walk on the beach in the early light or go for a swim. A short walk away is the Spot, a great local hamburger place, and in the other direction is the wetland marsh preserve. From our unit you can hear the ocean and feel the onshore breeze.
