About Grace Jackson

Grace and Josh are young filmmakers living in Venice Beach. They both love to surf, hike, and travel. Grace grew up in the foothills of Carpinteria and has strong ties to the Carpinteria community and town. Through Grace, Josh has fallen in love with the charm of the place as well. It doesn't hurt that Rincon is only a five minute drive down the coast! :)

Grace Jackson purchased this condo in 2013

Why Grace Jackson chose Carpinteria

This unit has been in Grace's family for some time, and this year, we bought it from our relatives to turn it into a beach getaway. Grace grew up in Carpinteria and we come for visits as often as we can!

Being one block from the heart of downtown Carpinteria makes this place so fun to visit! We park our car and walk everywhere. We are also two blocks from the Carpinteria State Park and a stone's throw to the beach!

What makes this condo unique

We totally remodeled the condo to create a wonderful flow between the living room and kitchen which makes cooking dinner fun for anyone! It also has tons of natural light making it feel bright and airy.

We put attention in every detail of the space from the recessed lighting to the granite countertops and wood floors throughout.

What can I say? It is nicer then our real house!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an enjoyable stay at your place! Loved everything and really appreciated the quality of accommodations! I want to ask if you could give me the info on the specific king pillows you have in the master bedroom? I have a bad neck and have not had that good of a nights sleep in a long time. I would appreciate it! We are already talking of another trip!

Carpinteria is a classic California beach town, one of the few remaining gems of the southern California coast and you will be in perfect location to enjoy it. Conveniently located in downtown Carpinteria, a quick five block walk to the beach and only one block away from the best restaurants, markets and shops of the downtown strip. You can spend all day at the beach and then walk a few hundred yards to Linden Ave, Carpinteria's main street. Enjoy a sunset beer at the local Island Brewery, the head over to one of the many fantastic restaurants in town, end the night by dancing to live music with the locals at the Palms.

The best way to enjoy the town is to park your car and walk everywhere! But if you feel like getting out, 10 minutes up the coast is Santa Barbara where you can visit the harbor, museums, or go wine tasting in the downtown 'Funk Zone'. There are also many hiking/ mountain biking trails, horseback riding, whale watching trips, surf spots etc.

The opportunities are endless. But our favorite thing to do when we are in Carpinteria is just relax!

Perfect Getaway Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it!! We had a great time staying here. It is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shopping. It was clean and well stocked. I would definitely stay here again and have already referred family and friends. Looking forward to our next trip to Carpinteria.

Great place near everything

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for me & my 2 daughters. Airy, modern, & convenient, not to mention the seemingly rare 2nd bathroom. We walked to restaurants & the beach our first day. It's not a bad walk, but we took our car to the beach the other days just to save the hassle of carrying things... by "things" I mean the wonderful extras at the condo- beach umbrella, boogie boards, chairs, towels- it was great to have it all provided! We enjoyed the private patio at the condo as well, although we didn't use the grill. This was my first time ever using a VRBO so I was a little nervous if it would all be ok. Grace the owner sent us info before our trip & there were no issues at all. I will plan another stay at this condo for my

next California visit!

Our Carpinteria Visit

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very nice and pretty much had everything we needed!! Grace (the owner) was quick to respond to our needs and very helpful with recommendations for restuarants. We enjoyed 2 meals out, Zooker''s and next day, Slys. I highly recommend this as a place to consider renting if you're coming to Carpinteria and need a centrally located spot. Just blocks away from everything!! Can easily walk to beach and downtown. Beaches are awesome!!
