About Ann

The condo has been in the family since the complex was built in 1972. We are 2nd generation owners along with our family, so we know Carpinteria and the Santa Barbara area very well. In all our travels nothing matches the beauty of this 'Gold Coast' known as beautiful Santa Barbara County and our small town of Carpinteria! We know once you come here you will fall in love with the town too! Now our family takes great pride in sharing our vacation condo with others like you.

Ann purchased this condo in 1972

Why Ann chose Santa Barbara Area

The Solimar Sands complex is one of the elite and finest complexes in Carpinteria! Its location is ideal because the street dead ends at a wildlife preserve on the North side of the complex. Therefore not a lot of traffic as Hotels and other condos in area face. It is in walking distance to everything including the beach across the street! It has the finest amenities and beautiful sparkling pools! There are other apartments and condos in different price ranges in the area. But you will find none as well maintained inside and out as this complex. It has a very active association who takes great pride in keeping the outside grounds spotless and the complex quiet and well maintained. The area has a family feel to it, unlike other complexes down the street where there is a lot more noise and partying crowd. You will enjoy the serenity of this complex!

What makes this condo unique

What you get in peace and serenity and the waves of the ocean at this complex is what made us fall in love with this place! Most condos in most cities which are beach accessible are outrageously priced to rent by the week or month or even to think of buying. And they all come with so many extra expenses. This is also very obvious when you look at condos throughout Santa Barbara County. This condo complex allows you to sleep to the sound of the waves, barbecue on a deck, or stroll along the beach which is only steps from your condo door. And here your not being forced to tip someone or fight crowds your whole vacation!

You really can have a great vacation and never leave the complex. You can literally walk to the store, walk to the restaurants, or whatever and feel safe. There is something about this small town that words cannot express.

If we were to say what makes this place so unique:

Quiet serenity is here ! Its the hidden jewel of California.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo before and we look forward to coming back every year. This condo is so clean and organized and spacious. It feels like home. We never want to leave. We love that the second room has bunk beds so that all of our girls can share a room. We like sitting out on the patio and listening to the ocean. The pool is great for the kids and us after a day at the beach. It is nice that you can walk to town. Owners of this condo are very nice and easy to work with. Thank you for another great family vacation in your condo!!!!

Enjoyed the Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love the condo. Had everything we hoped for as far as the condo. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. Enjoyed the beach and the pool. However, the housekeeping service prior to our arriving needed improving on. Absolutely no wash cloths, all table tops needed to be wiped clean of sticky stuff on them. Drool stains on the pillow covers which we took off and replaced. Outside chairs had to be cleaned prior to sitting on them. It was just the housekeeping, everything else was perfect and we would love to come back. You were wonderful to work with. I would like to come with just my dog for a month do you have any suggestions on condos that rent to pets? I cant find any.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the housekeeping service! We tried out another company in a pinch... I wish I knew of a rental that allowed pets, but off hand I don't know of any either. However, we are always communicating with other VRBO rental owners, so we will keep your request in mind when talking to others!

Perfect launching pad for beach fun.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the location near a great part of the beach and within walking distance of Carpinteria's great shops and restaurants. Like others who have reviewed this location, Carpinteria has been a part of the family for years, and it is still the great place we remember from childhood. We found the condo clean, well-stocked and comfortable - all of our expectations exceeded. One observation - with three girls, the more towels and places to hang them the better! The pool was a hit with our kids, and it was clean and well-maintained. We will definitely consider coming back here again next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve & Jennifer! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we will definitely take your suggestions regarding extra towels. This September, the condo association will be revamping the pool area so hopefully you will come back again and continue to enjoy your time at our condo! Many thanks again, Lou

perfect condo experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and i stayed in this condo for a week. We have been coming to carp for years and this was the first time staying at solimar sands. The condo was clean, had all the basics, and had a beautiful coastal breeze everyday flowing through! In the description, it mentioned beach towels and sands toys. There was only 1beach towel and no sand toys. Not a big deal, but thought you might want to know. The beds were comfy and very accommodating for my larger family. Thanks again Lou!
