About The Owner

We're California native's who love the beach and love to travel.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara Area

We've been vacationing in beautiful Carpinteria for many years. We take great pride in making our 'beach getaway' comfortable and relaxing, and hope our guests enjoy the same experience.

What makes this condo unique

Carpinteria really is a wonderful unspoiled small town. It has a warm feel that makes you relax as soon as you arrive. We love that we can walk to everything. The beach is just steps from our condo and we enjoy walking onto the sand for an early morning jog or evening sunset walk. Excellent restaurants are just a couple blocks away and shopping is also close by. There are many places to hike, bike, and enjoy all the natural beauty Carpinteria has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

** Guest Book Entry **

On a last-minute whim, I located this cute condo online the day before I booked it. We've been coming to Carpinteria for 20+ years and have always booked a week at Solimar Sands down the road. Since our "go to" place only books weekly, I was happy to find a place that I could stay for a long weekend. The pool is very nice and the grounds are very well-kept. The condo is very well stocked and we were lacking nothing, really.

We were lucky that we had wonderful weather and thoroughly enjoyed our time at the beach and the pool. I just may make this my usual Memorial Day get-away!

Old interior, uncomfortable bed and furniture. Dirty complex

  • 2 of 5

The complex is run down and dirty. The unit has wall to wall carpeting that needs replacement and everything needs updating. Bed was very uncomfortable and couch hurts to sit on. Pool was closed down during our stay which was the main reason we booked there. Location is only positive. If it wasn't so close to the beach it would have been a complete bust! Owner does provide a ton of beach toys so that was appreciated!

Great location and well stocked. Loved the sand toys and grocery stroll worked for our toddler too. Sarah was great, just need to replace the fold out couch, pretty saggy and not especially comfy.

Carpinteria Getaway

  • 3 of 5

Great location in a quiet beach community. The condo was in a private location on the back side of the building. However, the common property of the facility is in midst of safety upgrading and you might want to double check the progress of the project. Our condo was in need of more thorough cleaning of the kitchen and a deeper cleaning of the carpets and living room funiture. Condo is fully equipped with all the beach equipment that would make your stay in Carpinteria an enjoyable experience. Especially appreciated was the book of community information, activities and restaurants. April is a good month before the cloudy, foggy days of early summer. This is a good family location with a friendly, safe community and a variety of activities. Great walking, hiking and biking trails. Great shakes at the Burger Stand.

Sarah was a great contact for the facility.

Would we come again? Yes.

Fun time's in Carp

  • 4 of 5

Very cozy condo within walking distance to everything. For beach lover's like myself it's ideal. No need to bring anything but your tooth brush, the place is complete with everything you could possibly need. The vacuum cleaner was not working when I arrived, but management was fast to respond in making sure I had a replacement. Super relaxing vacation and a quiet building.

The property was wonderful. It was an easy access upstairs unit with a great mountain view. It was light and cozy with a nice kitchen and bathroom. Parking was great and a perfect location near the beach. We look forward to returning.

Lush, tree-lined Linden Avenue, Carpinteria’s main street to the beach, is one of the most charming downtown streets in all of California. A lovely backdrop for the weekly farmers market, it's also host to larger events such as the annual Avocado Festival each October as well as the wonderful old American car show, Rods and Roses, held every June. Everything you need is within walking distance; beach, grocery, movie theater, spa, fitness studio, city pool, skate park, art gallery, restaurants, and shops. The exciting dining options vary from Italian to Thai, vegan to steak house, Japanese to Mexican, seafood to beach burger, wine bar to micro brewery, shaved ice to baked goods and candy. Carpinteria also offers a local electric shuttle that, for a 25 cent fare, will take you along the beach and all of the major shopping areas in town. The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner offers five trains a day coming into Santa Barbara from the south with stops at Carpinteria’s wonderful little train depot. Rated as one of America's top 20 beaches, Carpinteria’s sandy stretch of oceanfront offers miles of gorgeous beach for swimming, surfing, fishing, tide pool exploring and camping. Harbor seals and dolphins can be seen, as well as an occasional gray whale. Tide pools contain starfish, sea anemones, crabs, snails, octopuses and sea urchins. This long stretch of sand is known as one of the world’s safest beaches, the gradual incline producing little or no rip currents. Boogie board and inner tube rentals, combined with a large green park, sand volleyball courts and picnic areas make this a popular locals spot on the weekends. Heading northwest along the beach you will discover a local surf spot and kayaking area, plus the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park. These 110 acres of prime ocean front land provide sanctuary for close to 200 bird species, including many endangered species. The Tar Pits Park is one of the real treasures of the Carpinteria Parks Department. Many locals don't even know about it. There are wonderful walking trails, vegetation restored as close to its natural state as possible, spectacular views and a real sense of privacy. You can usually see seals and sometimes dolphins in the water. The birds are numerous and varied. Early explorers observed Chumash Indians building their large ocean-going canoes, called tomols, along these banks. You can still see the natural asphaltum oozing from the rocks. The Carpinteria Bluffs are 52 acres of beautiful coastal property that features fabulous views of the Santa Ynez mountains, the ocean and the Channel Islands. You can access the Seal Rookery from here. It is also home to such birds as the White-tailed Kite, the Loggerhead Shrike, American Kestrel, and Red-Tailed and Cooper hawks. Native plants include coastal sage scrub and stipa grasslands as well as several stands of non-native but impressive eucalyptus. You can start your walk here (on middle to low tide), walk along the beach all the way to the Salt Marsh Estuary and back. It's about a two mile walk on clean white sand and probably one of the most beautiful anywhere. One of the most interesting secrets of Carpinteria is the Harbor Seal Preserve, which is home to almost 100 adult seals who give birth to their cubs on the Carpinteria shoreline. The beach is closed 750 feet on either side of the preserve from December through May. The seals are there all year long, but in the spring the cubs don't have the thick layer of fat that they need to protect themselves from the cold ocean waters. You can visit the Preserve via the bluffs. The seals are fascinating to watch as they move in and out of the water, bask in the sun, argue amongst themselves and dive for fish. The south edge of Carpinteria is home to the famous Rincon Beach, known to surfers world wide as one of the planet’s best point breaks. Northwest of the city is Padaro Beach or Santa Claus Lane, which is more of an unofficial beach break known primarily to locals.
