Carpinteria...maybe it's not really the land that time forgot, but it doesn't take much time here to feel like you've eased back into a vacation from your childhood. Days at the beach are long and lazy, and balmy nights are livened up by walks up and down the main drag, stopping for ice cream, to window shop, or to just watch others stroll by. There's a wide variety of local restaurants, but not a major chain in sight (other than fast food, of course), and if you feel like staying out late, there's usually live music playing nearby somewhere.

We have a comfortable, well stocked townhouse with cute beachy decor. It is the perfect place for a great relaxing vacation. New- this year --- a flat screen TV! We hope you enjoy the outdoors but if your favorite sporting event or something else is on-- the viewing is much improved. Dorrance Depot R&R has the flavor of the past with the accommodations that you want for your family today.

Located within two blocks of just about everything, it's a short walk to the beach and wildlife sanctuary in one direction, and Linden Avenue's shops and restaurants in the other. Although it's rumored to have been the old railroad station, today's Dorrance Depot R&R is all about Rest and Relaxation. Unit b, a spacious2 story beach townhouse, has three bedrooms and 1.5 baths, with a large and open living, dining area. The large private patio, connects the inside to the outside, and add to the entertainment possibilities.The house is fully equipped with kitchen, bath, and linen supplies and has a 2 car garage

Be our guest!...You'll be counting down the days until you can come back again. See our other listing at vrbo listing # 133631.

About Kathy Simon

Kathy and I first started coming to Carpinteria in the early '90s, visiting the state campground during the summer months with our friends and a slew of our kids. Even then, we were struck by the seamless and immediate transition into vacation mode that this timeless place inspired. A few years after that, we bought a smaller place near the beach that would allow us to take advantage of the coastal environment on a year-round basis. At the same time, our friends Pat and Terri Collins were making Carpinteria a regular vacation spot with their large group from Bakersfield. We bought our current property in partnership with Pat and Terri, and have now earned our stripes as 'part-time locals', counting many first-name relationships with local business and restauarnt owners as a badge of beach honor!

Why Kathy Simon chose Santa Barbara Area

The sleepy nature of Carpinteria is due in large part to the fact that it was originally established as an agricultural outpost, not a resort. The current makeup of the town features numerous beautiful flower farms strung along the base of the eastern foothills, a state beach and campground on the southern end of town, and a large wildlife preserve to the north. These elements have acted as a natural barrier to development, leaving Carpinteria as one of the most unchanged and pristine beach communities on the Southern California coast.

What makes this townhome unique

On the other hand, if you just need to get up and go, Santa Barbara is a short 10 mile drive straight up the coast, either using highway 101, or wandering along scenic back roads. Ventura is 15 miles south, and can also be reached either by the express highway 101, or taking the roundabout way along the coast, or through Ojai. In Carpinteria, the automobile is a non-essential item, and if your pedometer isn't logging more miles than your odometer, you need to rethink how you're spending your vacation time. Our house is located in a unique three block square that is an equally short walk to the beach, the wildlife preserve, the state park, and all restaurants, shops, and amenities. Don't feel like walking anywhere? That's OK, porch-sitting is a well respected and frequently practiced activity

Happy

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay! Close to everything! We walked to beach, breweries, and restaurants.

The townhouse was very comfortable and cute. We loved the decor! It had everything we needed except sunscreen! I plan on returning next year with the family! It is a great place to make memories!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This continues to be our chosen location for an unwinding vacation that isn't too far from home and yet a world apart. This is a great location in a sleepy coastal town that requires no vehicle to get around to the beach, stores and entertainment, including local breweries. We use it whenever we can and the size is perfect for those visiting family members and friends. We have been vacationing her enough that we feel like locals for our couple of weeks of decompression.

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! It was much larger than we expected. 2 big rooms up stairs and another that sleeps 2. Downstairs is huge and comfortable too.

The patio is great and furnished with a table and chairs, 2 umbrellas and recliners. There's a fire pit out there and a grill.

There were beach chairs and 2 boogie boards in the garage. All you need to bring are beach towels and sunscreen.

Charming Summer Get-away

  • 4 of 5

Very lovely beach house (- or condo). Plenty of room for 6 adults. Cozy little back yard/patio area. Easy access to the beach and town – and Thursday’s Farmer’s Market. Convenient location - lots of nature in the area even shopping if that's on your to-do-list

The not so positive:

- the kitchen equipment was a bit lacking, there are plates, glasses and mugs for one meal - for dinner there is ONE big pot (- for pasta sauce, but we'd have to cook pasta for 2 and 2 and 2 - in a very small pot)

- the trundle bed, if you can call that a bed, was horrible. It was more like sleeping on a board, I like a firm mattress but after a week on this one you’ll need a very good chiropractor.

I really don’t like to be a “Negative Nancy” – but I feel that these issues are easy fixes – a little trip to Ikea could fix it all!

We would rent again – if you get a new mattress! : )
