Property description

“The Cottages,” eight newly finished in 2013 each feature two bedroom (including loft) and include a living room sofa bed to sleep 4-5. An open floor plan gives the kitchen, dining and living room area a comfortable, roomy feeling. All cottages are sprinkled with vintage elements (vintage lighting, Big Chill retro appliances, furnishings). Amenities include free beach cruisers, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, vintage games. Relax by sitting on the front porch swing or enjoy the community barbeque/picnic tables area. Feel free to pick fruit off of the various fruit trees on the property (limes for those margarita’s of course).

Carpinteria is the perfect California town that still feels like a step back into the 1950’s. Shopping, groceries, restaurants are plentiful. Other beaches within 2 miles include Rincon - great for surfing along with Santa Claus Lane where you can rent surfboards, paddle boards and other beach items.

Could this be your favorite alternative vacation? A stress less car free (though auto’s are welcome) holiday from northern or southern California (or the east coast) by train (or fly to Burbank, CA and take Burbank Airport Amtrak) to Carpinteria, CA –“World’s Safest Beach.” Arrive at our local train stop located just 100 yards away. Enjoy the slower pace of Carpinteria - “The Cottages,” located 4 short blocks to the beach and a block and a half from main (Linden) street. Need to see more on your holiday? Train or local bus can take you north to Santa Barbara (10 miles) or south to Ventura(12 miles) dropping you off within walking distance of both downtown areas.

The perfect vacation for families, young couples, retirees (ADA accessible), as well as all families; a great spot for family reunions.

Year Purchased: 2010

About: After spending 27 years in a different (apparel) industry, this project looked like a fun challenge to create memories and enjoyment for many generations down the road.

Why Carpinteria, CA, USA:
As soon as I saw this property, I knew that this is what I wanted to do. Though I couldn't save all of the 6 sad cottages, could I bring it back to its happier days? A project that I hoped would inspire developers to respect land and community, have lots of sustainable features, be efficient with space and avoid overbuilding properties because they can. A place where people who appreciate simplicity would love to stay and leave with great memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Completed in 2013, the property includes two “saved” 1955 houses and 6 new personality plus one bedroom (sleeps 4) cottages. A project with splurges on the right things (the best windows, ceiling fans, wood doors, appliances…) with a philosophy that bigger is not better. These have the latest sustainable materials (tankless water heaters, flooring's, exterior materials, toilets, lighting…) yet feel authentic to its past life with original vintage accents . Porch swings, beach cruisers, picnic tables, swaying palm trees, fruit trees (limes for the drinks of course) - everything you would want on the perfect vacation. Enjoy exploring Carpinteria.
