About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Great home for family and friends to reunite with beach fun. This beautiful Cape Cod home has a bright family room for kids to have fun while adults are close by in the gourmet kitchen or relaxing in the living room. People who love to relax can take advantage of the gourmet kitchen with the 48' Viking stove and built in wine chiller. A full outdoor barbecue, fireplace and rustic teak seating area lend itself to many memorable moments with family and friends.

This home has three bedrooms: a large master with its own master crafted tiled bathroom and bamboo king bed invites a beautiful gaze of the estuary across the way (sleeps 2). The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and armoire and adjoins the beautiful beach tiled bathroom with shower (sleeps 2). The third bedroom has two bunk beds that have a top and bottom and sleep four children. You can bring your own blow up bed and sleep 2 more in the TV room.

Only steps to the beach, this location allows early morning walks and gorgeous sunsets. No expense has been spared. Come enjoy a house that you will want to stay in for years to come with family and friends. We have created many memories in this home and we know you will too. Summer season rates are in effect for UCSB graduation, Thanksgiving Week and Christmas Weeks. We do not rent to non-family groups, defined as unrelated adults under the age of 40. Until confirmed, rates are subject to change.

Great surfing and kayaking are near by, shops and lessons too. Walk to restaurants, shops, markets and banking. You are free to use whatever we have at the house--kayaks, beach chairs, etc. We know you don't want to bring all the beach toys. Carpinteria vacation rental license 1012-VR-18.

Cape Cod Beach House--Fantastic Carpinteria Location

A spacious family house, 2 blocks from the beach in small-town Carpinteria, close to Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

This is a well laid-out family vacation house, with a spacious lower-level TV room containing games, videos, and puzzles. The kitchen and living room are both large, well-equipped and well-furnished. There is an attractive gas fireplace in the living room, as well as another outdoor gas fireplace.

The biggest plus is the location, just two blocks from a well-cared-for, “safe” beach. And within walking/bike riding-distance south, there is a state beach and a seal rookery where mother seals were giving birth to pups during our February visit. We walked and rode bikes around the small town of Carpinteria, swam at the public pool, and ate at the restaurants on the small main street. The train from Carp to Santa Barbara is about 11 minutes, and the drive is about 12 miles, though often very slow in congested traffic. We feel lucky that our three-week stay was after the Thomas fire and the resulting flooding. Overall, our family of four adults and two grandchildren had a great stay at this house in Carp.

Wonderful for family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful week here. The kitchen is a super gathering and cooking space for all ages. The little table nook at the end of the kitchen is perfect for kids' card games. Beach close. Master bedroom/bath breezy and very comfortable. Many thanks to owners! The Henry's
