About the property

1BR/1BA (sleeps 4), pool view

Newly renovated 1st floor condo (unit #16) in the Solimar Sands Resort. Brand new kitchen and floors. Bedroom with new queen bed and large closet. Large living area with full kitchen, breakfast bar, dining table, and new queen sleeper sofa. Flat screen TV, HD cable, and private wi-fi network. (Wi-fi is, unfortunately, slow, but it works.) Sliding glass doors open to pool area, with 2 heated pools and hot tub. Watch your kids swim while you relax inside! Gated parking.

Just 100 steps to the 'World's Safest Beach'! Kayak rental (seasonal) available at beach. Resort is also next to the Bird Sanctuary, with walking trails. For longer hikes, walk along the Carpinteria bluffs to the Seal Sanctuary, or head inland to the Santa Ynez Mountains (about 10-15 minutes away). Also a 10 minute walk to downtown Carpinteria, with shops, restaurants, groceries, and other services. The city of Santa Barbara is only 15 minutes up Highway 101.

We are now able to take credit cards at the phone number provided. Unfortunately, we still can't offer linens or towels - though we're looking into doing that. Please note that a cleaning fee ($112) is added to all rentals, and we are required to take a 12% city tax on any rental of less than 30 days. Our current base rates are:

Off-season: $968 (weekly), $1777 (monthly)

Summer 2015: $1375 (weekly), or call for monthly

We are sometimes able to offer shorter-than-weekly rentals.

This is one of the best rates on the beach in Carpinteria!

Why Jennifer Miller (Resort Manager) chose Santa Barbara Area

Carpinteria is one of our favorite places. We got married nearby in the Santa Ynez Mountains and love spending time in and around Carpinteria. Last year, we finally made the decision to buy our own little slice of happiness by the beach at Solimar Sands.

Clean, cute, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this unit last month with my husband, and can't wait to return! The apartment was lovely -- very clean, very comfortable (great bed), and literally steps from a nice outdoor pool and hot tub (not to mention a few minutes' walk to the beach and downtown). The open kitchen was well stocked, and had a great layout for cooking while socializing with people in the living area. The amenities included great wifi (the owners claimed it was slow, but I did not find that to be the case), plus what looked like a new big screen TV with lots of cable channels. Calling this unit "home" resulted in a fantastic week in Carpinteria!

Perfect Location, and awesome for kids!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this condo in June. Very clean and attractive, and in a PERFECT location. If you want to stroll to the beach, it's about a one-minute walk from the front door. There is an nice pool and hot tub right next to the unit, which is incredibly convenient if you are traveling with children who can't make up their minds about where they want to be. (No stairs or walking.) The kitchen is stocked with everything you'd need to cook any meal, and the layout of the condo is great. It's very quiet at night, and the bed was super comfy. We had a great stay here and are planning on coming back next summer.

Cozy Beach Condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our first stay at this complex & we were overall very happy with it & already plan to rent one of the larger units next year for Spring Break. The unit is pretty small, but the layout is nice so you aren't too crowded. The kitchen was nicely stocked & had everything we needed. There was also a nice coffee maker that us parents appreciated! We were there with our two daughters, age 8 & 4, and they loved the unit & how close it was to the pool. It was clean (except for the rug - keep reading!), and had all the things we needed. Sand is something that no matter how hard you try to rinse off will follow you in, and there was a broom & pan there to use to try & keep it at bay. Everyone else at the complex was super nice - there seemed to be a good mix of people renting units like us & owners. Couple of drawbacks - the rug in the unit is very stained, but with the amount of tar that is on Carp beaches, there really isn't any way around that unless you just get a dark rug so that it cant be seen, otherwise the rug just looks dirty. The only other drawback is that the website for Solimar Sands states that all units have a patio, but this unit does not, and when I asked about it, we were told by the manager that this should have been disclosed to us when we rented the unit, and unfortunately it was not. Overall, this is a great unit for a small family or a couple with no children...
