About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This 1920's Beach Bungalow is an easy 2 block walk to the beach and 3 blocks to downtown (dining and shopping). It is centrally located: the community pool, tennis courts and the Carpinteria State Beach Park are all within walking distance of a few blocks. Listen for the surf breaking when the swell is up. Enjoy beautiful mountain and sunset views from the front porch.

This Bungalow has the charm of an older home with wood floors and tile counters and is well cared for. You can spend a week here without once needing to drive anywhere. We have provided 2 surfboards and 2 boogie boards with towels and beach chairs for your use at the beach. Surf lessons can be arranged too. Carpinteria is one of the last remaining small California beach towns and is known for it's relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

If you want to explore further, Santa Barbara is only 15 minutes up the road and offers many options from museums, whale watching, harbor sight seeing, shopping, movies and excellent restaurants. The Santa Barbara Mission, the County Court House, and Lotus Land Botanical Gardens are some of the top destinations. Musical concerts at the County Bowl or local clubs like SoHo offer many choices too.

The owners, Don and Patti Campbell, live in the rear guest house and are available to help you have the best experience while here.

BEST Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family has come to Carpinteria every year for over 50 years. We absolutely adore this little beach town. Several of us get campsites at the state beach just down the street. This year, our family was unable to get a site (they book up in less than two minutes for the summer months). So, the next best thing was to find a house that was close to the campground. The location is what initially brought us to this house, but once there, we really enjoyed everything about it. Even though it is small, the layout is nice and we were able to have some great family time hanging out in the family room and outside on the lush patio. Of course the weather was perfect! My kids were thrilled that there were sand toys, paddle boards, and surf boards at the house for them to use. The house was also within walking distance of all of our favorite spots downtown. We were super comfortable here for the week and will come again!

Quaint cottage in a great location

We loved walking to the beach from this gorgeous little cottage, sitting on the front porch with cocktails, and walking to the fabulous little town of Carpinteria. :)

Quintessential beach house

  • 5 of 5

My group of six stayed in this welcoming home. This property is described as a bungalow, but the six of us never felt scrammed. With a great room and a patio, you always have a quiet space to hang out. I was a bit concerned of a couple of comments about the kitchen. Yes, the stove and oven are probably original but I take this gas powered appliance over an electric one any day. I baked a cake in the oven at 350F and it worked just like a modern one. The location is perfect, walking distance to the beach and 'downtown'. The owner welcomed us with warmth. I definitely will stay in this property again when I visit Carp.

Patti is a wonderful host. She payed attending to lots of little details around the house. It was my wife's 50th and we had some people over for dinner. So it needed to be able to accommodate guests and be nice enough for an occasion like that. My wife was very happy with the decor and the feel of the place. Everything was beautiful and well thought out from the: soaps, the guest book, the surfboards etc, kitchen utensils, BBQ, wood floors, nice beds, beautiful landscaping, front porch with seats, ample parking, guest book with restaurants listed and tourist attractions, TV, close to beach (5 min walk), close to shopping etc. etc.

Patti texted me just enough to make sure everything was ok and to let me know that I could contact her at any time if needed.

This home was a little more expensive than the others I was looking at, but in the end it was worth it to get the right feel. Other places can be just a roof and a bed, this home made you feel the way you're supposed to feel when on vacation at the little beach resort town of Carpinteria

Very relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Carpinteria. We have visited Carpinteria dozens of times, and this has been one of the nicest places we have rented. The home was charming, well equipped, and very relaxing. We were within walking distance of the places we wanted to go to in town and the beach was very accessible as well. All of my expectations were met.

Thank you Patti and Don for the hospitality.
