About Greg Lee

After a refreshing walk along the bluffs, we're relaxing with Jelly Bowl Beach in the background.

Greg Lee purchased this house in 2004

Why Greg Lee chose Carpinteria

It is so easy to transform into a beach vacation frame of mind in this charming, low key, friendly beach community.

What makes this house unique

We love parking the car, and leaving it there for our entire stay in Carpinteria.

This is such a beautiful property with gorgeous views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Carpinteria is such a lovely little beach town with lots of character and lots to see and do. The beaches are gorgeous and it is close to hiking and wine country. The property itself is in a lovely neighborhood, so comfortable and thoughtfully appointed with everything we needed and could have wanted for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The back yard and its views are magnificent! We would definitely stay here again.

We have just completed a four month rental and we feel very fortunate that it was available at the time we wanted it. Many rental facilities present a rather glorified vision of the property, however in this case it is exactly as portrayed. It is a very comfortable house to live in and the location is excellent we walked to the beach almost every day and it is even a short walk into town . it is a very light and airy house and the facilities offered are amazing, including bicycles, kayaks and even a billiard table. The owner is readily available for any questions that might arise and is very attentive to any concerns that you might have.

Carpinteria is a charming and somewhat quaint small town and I was surprised at the number of good restaurants available.

If and when we rent a gain in Carpinteria, we would not dream of going anywhere else. If you rent here you will not be disappointed.

our second home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two months in this amazing house in fall 2015 with our two dogs and felt like 20 year olds again. Every morning and afternoon we walked to the beach, spent evenings watching sunsets, rode the beach cruisers into town for dinners and essentially soaked up every minute of our time there. My wife found the kitchen to be the best she has ever used and we entertained visitors regularly. Even our dogs were happier in this house than they are at home! We have already rented the house again for 5 weeks next year.

Fresh air, waves crashing, room for kids to chill and within walking or biking distance to everything---THAT makes for a perfect vacation getaway. We've rented homes in Idaho and Wyoming in recent years and this Southern California home is heaven. All the amenities you need (coffee pot, iron, towels, dishes, fire pit, lounge chairs, patio set, beach chairs, bikes, kayaks---everything). And a pool table! Space for adults to gather and kids to watch tv late at night. Carpenteria main city beach is idyllic with friendly people, actual or window shopping, ice cream and coffee shops, brewery. Small town charm, but a Starbucks if you need it! The home is clean, spacious, safe and in a pleasant area within walking distance to beach. We loaded up early and found a spot at main beach for the day. We planned to load the car, unload and drive back to the house to drop the car off for the day but even at 9 am we found prime parking at the beach open. If you want to escape the stress and chaos of life or the city, this is the house. You are secluded but a minute from town. Views of beach over backyard bluff are gorgeous and the waves soothe the soul. We plan to go again (live in northern cal) and hope this house is available!

Most amazing place we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2014. This home is located within steps of the ocean, and a short walk or bike ride to great dining and shopping. It sits in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood with an abundance of old shade trees. The home is great for large families and offers a very cool old bunk bed for the kids, oh and one of the greatest showers you will ever use. There’s a full size pool table in the game room, music everywhere and a beautiful gourmet kitchen that opens up to the best part of this house….the backyard. The most beautiful and spacious back yard we have ever seen. Unobstructed panoramic mountain and ocean views from every angle. It’s like your own personal botanical garden. Tons of room for backyard fun too. Toss the football or Frisbee and play a great game of hide n seek with the kids. There’s also a giant fire pit area that inspires star gazing and s’mores. Complete privacy. This home also provides plenty of bikes. Carpinteria is a bike friendly town, and that is the preferred mode of transportation. Plenty of parking at the house and the house comes equipped with everything you need (like washer and dryer, hair dryer, coffee maker, etc). Santa Barbara is just a quick drive away with so many options of things to do up in Northern California and it is so beautiful. We are definitely coming back.
