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.
