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!"

This was out second visit to this incredible "retreat" at Rincon. If possible it was even better than our first one! My daughter learned to surf at last! Fun was had by all! Spectacular!
This is a really special place -- elegant and comfortable without being fussy, really well laid out (great flow!), and the location cannot be beat. We loved watching the surfers while enjoying our morning coffee, and the little beach was great for the kids, too. The beds were super cozy too, and the house is solidly built so nice and quiet inside (a big plus with loud surf and the train tracks nearby, and also with young kids who go to bed way before the adults are ready to!). We're already trying to figure out how soon we can get back here.
This is the second California beach house I have stayed at and my family and I really liked it. We thoroughly enjoyed that they had everything we need to function in the house. As well as everything we need to enjoy the beach! Toys and shovels, Surf boards and boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, coolers beach bags and more! The water was a lot calmer than other parts of the California beach. The only down side is that you have to walk over rocks to get to the beach so while this was okay for us and our kids probably would be difficult for someone a little older. Over all we really liked this adorable beach house in it's private community on a private beach!
I absolutely have to say Rincon Retreat was my favorite vacation rental I've ever done! It was truly a spectacular home . I will return to this home four times a year for the rest of my life .. This one is a must!!
We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Rincon Retreat!! The location is amazing and the house so charming! It was an awesome stay all around with the beach right outside your door along with world class surf. I hope to come back every year!!
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.
