About The Owner

I have been enjoying the Carpinteria beach all my life and still find it as one of the best places to be. I am still thrilled to see the marine life such as the coastal bottle nose dolphin, harbor seals, brown pelicans and so many other shore birds that are always around. I enjoy ocean wildlife photography and do have some examples on the walls of our family beach house. The beach is always changing making something new to see each visit.

The Owner purchased this house in 1953

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara Area

We have had this house in our family since it was built in 1953. Although it has undergone four remodels over the years, it still has the original adobe walls made right in Carpinteria. The house has a charm that is its own.

What makes this house unique

The property is a beach house, not a condo. This makes it more spacious, a lot quieter, with private patios and its own palm frond umbrella in front. The kitchen area is quite large so there is adequate space for a gathering in the kitchen dining area to enjoy. We have rented the house as a vacation rental for decades and have some friends that have rented every year for over 20 years, a testament to its appeal.

Wonderful Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we hoped for. Steps from the beach and a town that had all we needed. We are 6 high school friends and every year we pick a different place to go. So far this is our favorite! We just left and we miss it already. Thank you so much for renting this to us!

Everything you could possibly need for a fantastic beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was beautiful, fully equipped with everything we needed for a week stay, and a perfect spot on the beach! The gardens were lovely, lots of indoor and outdoor seating, and the patio with a glass windbreak and fireplace was perfect for the chilly nights!

Perfect house for three generations

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week surrounding the Cate School graduation. It was a perfect spot for our extended family, ranging in age from 18 to 85. The house is perfectly located for walking on the beach or to restaurants in town. Carpinteria is a wonderful town and the beach is fantastic. Plenty of space inside and two great outside sitting areas plus the beach. Plenty of privacy. Everything was well maintained and the kitchen and grill had everything you could need to cook. Great communication with the owner. Can't say enough great things about our stay.

Another great week in Carpinteria

  • 4 of 5

Carpinteria is the best beach vacation spot in California, as far as I'm concerned. We've stayed in this house many times, starting in the 80s, long before upgrades to the current configuration. As many others have said, it's ideal for a family reunion, with four bedrooms, and sleeping up to 10 (four would have to share the downstairs bedroom, equipped with a queen and two twins). The kitchen is terrific, well-equipped and with room for a couple of cooks, but it may be time to upgrade the tile countertop to something more easily cleaned. The beds are better than I had remembered; the ones in our bedroom had memory foam mattress toppers and were quite comfortable. Sheets and towels were good quality. I took away a star because of the gas grill on the patio. I had looked forward to cooking at least a couple of meals on it but it was heavily encrusted with grease and grunge, and I could not get it to light, even after referring to an online manual. The winter beach berm spoiled the ocean view from downstairs but we knew it was going to be in place so it wasn't a surprise. We'd stay again in a heartbeat but would check the grill on arrival.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We are installing a brand new grill this week-end. I am sorry it couldn't have happened before your stay, but it is comments like yours that help us keep the house in good working order. Thank you
