Rincon Retreat - Casual Beachfront Comfort

Rincon Beach is a World Class Surfer's haven. When the surf is up, all the greats flock to this historical location to surf the consistent, perfect waves. Inside private gates of the Rincon community, Rincon Retreat is perched right on the beach, offering a front row seat to the surfing spectacle and an unforgettable vacation!

Not into surfing? No problem! The blue coastal waters are the ideal backdrop to whatever activities you choose. Whether sun worshiping, whale watching, or beachcombing, Rincon Retreat is the perfect coastal getaway. The location is also close to great shopping and restaurants in Montecito, Carpinteria and Ventura.

This 1947 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath beach bungalow has been a beloved family retreat for decades, and is now available for guests to enjoy. The home has a very casual beach feel, and offers a great place to kick off your shoes and relax. Rustic yet well appointed, you will feel right at home here.

On the west side of the house, the oceanfront Master Bedroom with queen-size bed and flat screen TV offers great views and access door to the oceanfront patio. A second Bedroom is equipped with 2 twin beds, and has views of the front entry courtyard that is private and serene. There is a hall Bathroom in cool ocean blue colors between the two Bedrooms with both a shower and bathtub. The 3rd Bedroom on the east side of the house has a king-size bed and faces the entry courtyard with views through a large picture window. A second hall Bathroom has a shower and outside access door to the side walkway, leading back to the beach.

The Living and Dining Rooms open to the surfside patio through French doors. The nonworking fireplace has been outfitted with battery operated candles to create a cozy ambiance; curl up in the evening in front of the warm "glow". For book worms, the home has an extensive collection of books from various genres and decades. Grab a great read and find a cozy spot to escape.

The Breakfast Room is a perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while pancakes are on the griddle. The Kitchen is original but efficient, with plenty of dishes and kitchen tools if cooking is in the vacation plans. There is a stackable washer and dryer unit to keep beach towels fresh and ready for use.

Outside, the ocean front deck is fully outfitted for fun in the sun. For the "grill master", both a Weber charcoal barbecue and propane grill have been provided. Chaise lounges, dining table, bench seating and shade umbrellas all invite guests to enjoy the warm sunshine and beach activity from sunrise to sunset.

This side of Rincon is a bit rocky so low tide uncovers amazing sealife, making tidepooling a great activity for the whole family. During certain times of the year, if the surf is high, the amount of sandy beach in front of the house may vary but guests can load up the vintage "Radio Flyer" wagon with a picnic and provided beach toys and walk down the lane to the other side of the Point.

Sit back, relax and watch the beach activity from this great spot in paradise, or grab one of the boogie boards or surf boards provided and paddle out! As the Beach Boys say, "...catch a wave and you're sittin' on top of the world!"

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at property) We came to the area for a wedding and decided to make it into a vacation. This house was perfect! The views of the water are fantastic. Every evening was spent on the patio drinking coffee and watching the waves. Thank you for sharing this lovely spot with our family.

Property description does not truthfully represent actual property

  • 2 of 5

We had plans for a relaxing, serene week at the beach and were very disappointed. The property is extremely close to the freeway, making the roaring freeway sound the only noise you can hear. No matter what room you go in, all you will be able to hear is that sound. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway, don't let the description deceive you. To make matters worse, the property manager was not willing to make any compromises. We left after the first night, and they were not willing to work with us at all, charging us in full for the nights we did not stay. We had to find another place to stay at the last minute. Overall, we were very frustrated with our stay and would not recommend this location.

Owner's Response: Hi Mary, Thank you for your comments and feedback, and we apologize that you felt that the location of this property was noisy. We have never had this comment before for this property, and we do not believe the freeway is a noise concern here. But again, we appreciate your comments and apologize. Also, we do remember you saying you were going to stay at your Mom's house in Ojai after departing our property, so we hope you were not too inconvenienced in finding an alternate location. If any future guest has questions about this location, please feel free to give us a call directly and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. This property sits on the beach, so most likely you will hear the waves over any traffic noise. Sincerely, Paradise Retreats

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home and especially the location. Saw Sea Lions and dolphins several times and the view of the water reflecting the full moon was terrific. Great site for surfing and boogie boarding, with continuous waves coming into the beach. The children would up finding a ton of seashells to keep as souvenirs. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Iconic beach location

  • 5 of 5

I used to drive by this point break when visiting my grandparents in Santa Barbara. I vowed that I would surf the point and I finally did. Great outside area to watch the surf and beach activity on the long sunny June evenings.

Venture up the freeway to explore the quaint ocean-side town of Carpinteria. Linden Avenue is lined with fantastic boutiques and restaurants. At the end of the road is Carpinteria Beach, known for its pristine white sand and safe surf. This charming town is full of fun things to do, and the friendly locals can help you find even more hidden treasures! Santa Barbara is another 10 minutes north of Carpinteria.
