This charming and stylish, beautifully refurbished 1920's beach cottage is 2 blocks from Carpinteria State Beach, 1 block from Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, and a few blocks from the heart of town. Included bikes, beach wagon, beach chairs, boogie board and cooler all make a fun-filled day at the beach effortless. Rinse off the day in our hot water, outdoor shower when you return.
We were honored to have our cottages (#336069 & #248884) chosen to fill the 'Little Gem' category of Carpinteria Beautiful's annual Home and Garden Tour in April 2012. They were also featured in Carpinteria Magazine's winter 2010 edition.
The cottage features tasteful furnishings and decor, refinished hardwood floors throughtout, central heat, ceiling fans in the bedrooms, and all the comforts of home. Beautiful, original paintings by local artists adorn the walls. There is a bedroom with a queen bed and another with a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full bed on the bottom. A lovely patio in the yard with an outdoor dining table is the perfect spot for a sunset dinner. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There is a fully upgraded kitchen with stone countertops and new appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave and ice maker. You will also find a washer and dryer for your convenience. We offer a library of DVD's, wireless internet, and nationwide long distance calling at no additional charge. Games and books are in the cupboard for mellow days around the house.
The surrounding neighborhood is very peaceful and the neighbors are friendly. There are several antique shops and wonderful restaurants within walking distance, as well as nature trails and bird watching one block away. Or, hop on the bikes and head to town! Thursday afternoons offer a fresh Farmers Market. The town of Santa Barbara is a short drive and hosts a zoo, museums, shopping, golf, art events, botanical gardens, the Queen of the Missions, wine tasting and more! Stop in Summerland for great antiquing, then glamorous, celebrity-filled Montectio along the way.
Our cottage offers a charming place to stay while on your vacation. Make it your home-away-from-home!

About the owner: Our bought 2 neglected, unloved cottages on one lot 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. We expertly and extensively refurbished them throughout, upgrading EVERYTHING and making them very livable and lovely. We love to share them with people that will appreciate the quality and care we put into our charming cottages. (SEE VRBO 248884 for the other cottage).
Why the Owner Chose Carpinteria, CA, USA:
Being in Carpinteria is like stepping back in time. It's a classic Southern California beach town that has retained is relaxed and easy charm. Life is mellow in Carp. The beach is amazing and there are many good restaurants nearby. We live in nearby Santa Barbara.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love to spend the day at the beach, walk home for a nap, then clean up and walk into town for a cocktail at Sly's or a yummy dinner at Corktree Cellars. Watching the kids swim to the platforms and splash around with all of the other kids always puts a smile on my face. Morning bird watching at the Salt Marsh is the perfect way to start the day.
