Why Nancy Hussey chose Santa Barbara Area

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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 is beautiful! We hope to be able to stay there again one summer in the future!
