About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-5)

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 Kat Hirsch

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).

Kat Hirsch purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Kat Hirsch chose Santa Barbara Area

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for a lovely 3 nights and 4 days! We had a wonderful time and we really loved the interior design of this place! The paintings were very neat and we had a very comfortable stay. Getting around on the bikes was also a lot of fun. Thanks again, and we would love to come back!

Adorable beach cottage was perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Four of us long time friends gathered from across the state and from Colorado to share time together at Kat's little beach cottage. Everything about the place was perfect (although we could have used another blanket or two since the weather had turned cooler that week). Let me count the ways - very attractive, outside and inside, comfortable beds, spacious and comfortable seating in the living room for four people, lovely fireplace lit with multiple candles, great kitchen and dining area, outside seating was a great option, easy stroll to the beach, quiet street with parking, plenty of towels and glassware etc, cleaning supplies provided for removing the inevitable tar from our feet after a beach walk, and an easy walk into town for shops and groceries. We are all familiar and love Carp and the surrounding area and loved basing out of this adorable cottage. We four women even managed to do fine with just one bathroom! We shared hours of conversation, tears and laughter. We hired a masseuse to come in and give us massages - Marla was fantastic. Thanks for the tip, Kat. We are enjoying our memories of a very special time in your lovely cottage. Oh, and the train stop is just a few blocks away.

Absolutely wonderful. A sweet, comfy cottage and peaceful paradise two blocks from the gently rolling Pacific Ocean and wide sandy beach. South France is jealous. Tres jaloux.

Annual extended family getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I stayed at Kat's home, and it' won't be the last. My family and I LOVED her place. It is a perfect size for a small family. It's perfectly decorated and all the furniture and decor is beautiful. The attention to detail is excellent. Everything from providing all that we needed for a comfortable stay, to the cute basket outside with tar remover and cotton pads neatly packed in a zip lock bag. Bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrella and a wagon is also provided for recreational pleasure. Providing Apple TV and a wireless speaker was also an added bonus. Thanks for the wonderful stay, and we'll be back again. p.s. Can we buy your place as is? We loved it THAT much!! :)

Perfect Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great girls trip to Carpinteria, One of the best parts of our trip was staying at Kat's cottage. It's decorated adorable and was spotless. The pictures are exactly as it truly is and I would recommend any of my friends or family to rent this property. We spent one morning walking to the Coffee Bean and getting our nails done. We then walked to the beach. Everything is truly walkable. Thank you Kat for helping to make our girls trip even better!

Great get away with family!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cottage is ideal. Close to the beach and close to the adorable town of Carpenteria. We had great morning walks along the beach and then would walk into town for breakfast. We were very impressed with the charming decor of the cottage and enjoyed the great art work on the walls. Loved the ambiance and relaxed feeling of hanging out inside as well as outside. The best part of our stay was that my sister and her family rented the cottage next door. I would highly recommend the cottages to anyone that wanted to experience this area. We will be back for a repeat of this great vacation and great accommodation.
