Enjoy the privacy and sophisticated Spanish colonial feeling of The Villas. With only a few dozen homes, it has an intimate scale and lovely amenities. Easy access to Santa Barbara.
Carpinteria is a special place offering small town friendliness, atmosphere and convenience; Rated by Sunset magazine as one of the top 5 small beach towns in the U.S.
Carp has a variety of dining choices, not to mention those in Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara.
Recreation and walking opportunities abound on the many beaches nearby and at the Salt Marsh park. The Carpinteria Bluffs and Harbor Seal Preserve and nearby Rincon Point are all well worth visiting.
Plus the climate is terrific year-round.
"We had a great time at your house with our family. The neighborhood is great and full of nice people. We would very much would like to come back next year."
My family spent the summer of 2015 in this lovely, comfortable condo! Everything you can think of to furnish a home is provided! We were close to everything and the grandkids were kept busy everyday going to the beach, to the zoo, to parks etc. They also loved going to the pool which is part of the compound...especially on those days when it was in the 90's. The other residents of the compound are very nice and welcoming also! We all hated to leave and can highly recommend this condo..it is beautiful! We hope to be able to stay there again one summer in the future!
This is an absolutely lovely condo - decorated in a beautiful SoCalif / Santa Barbara motif - everything is provided, and a fabulous beach is only 2 min drive away! Loved every minute of staying here - only downfall was I had to leave!
Carpinteria is charming, with a friendly small town feel. 'Carp' claims having the 'World's Safest Beach', miles of which are walkable. Close to the Santa Barbara Polo Grounds. Fresh local produce is available at weekly farmers markets. Access to Santa Barbara, Montecito, and Summerland is quick and easy. The beautiful Ventura Highway begins at Rincon Point, just south of Carpinteria, with Ventura 1/2 hour away. Nearby destinations include the Carpinteria Bluffs, seal rookery & antique shops. For plant lovers, orchid growers & retail nurseries are nearby. Santa Barbara holds many celebrations throughout the year and has a colorful outdoor art and crafts market along Cabrillo Blvd many weekends.
Special Note: For reasons unknown, Google Maps (a) does not provide street views of the Villas of Carpinteria, (b) incorrectly shows Cravens Lane as connecting with Franciscan Way and (c) shows the location of some features near the Villas in a way that could be misleading.
