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!

Great condo in a perfect location
Absolutely great condo with everything we could possibly need or want. Being able to walk to the beach and downtown Carpenteria was a bonus!
Nice property, great location, has issues that need addressing.
Overall, a nice property with a great location - a very short walk into town, and a short walk to the beach. It was great to have a reserved parking space nearby, and in general, the property was clean and comfortable. However, there were some issues during our stay.
The usual amenities found in a rental were lacking - there was a washer/dryer in the unit, but no laundry detergent was provided, so we purchased our own. The large kitchen was great to cook breakfast in, with a lot of counter space, but there was no cleaning products to wipe the counters down with and we were left with only 1/4 roll of paper towels - so we purchased those as well. On day 3 of our stay, we ran out of toilet paper, and there was no extra in the unit - so we contacted the owner, who had her mom come by with a few extra rolls. Spending money on items that should have been stocked was disappointing.
On the second night of our stay, I came home to find hundreds of ants in the master bathroom - they were coming out of a small hole in the wall near the floor. The owner had let us know at the beginning of our stay that since it's summer, they sometimes have ants, but that they put out ant traps and provided ant spray just in case. There were no traps put out, and we had a hard time locating the spray - and once we did, it was a non-toxic solution that needed to be mixed with water and put into a spray bottle. I contacted the owner with photos of the ants, explaining what we came home to, and she responded the next morning just saying that she would contact maintenance and let them know. I asked if we could expect maintenance to come by that day, so that the problem could be fixed and all of the dead ants could be cleaned up, but she never responded to me in regards to that issue. So, we cleaned up what we could using paper towel, but there were still a ton of dead ants all over the bathroom floor and in the shower, and no one ever came to fix or clean anything while we were there. It wasn't ideal to spend my vacation killing and disposing of ants, not to mention, trying to step around them while using the shower/bathroom. We were all a little upset that I never got a response and that no one came to help clean up.
If the property owner could improve upon communication, properly stocking up on basic necessities, and alleviate the major ant issue by sealing the hole in the bathroom wall, this could be a great property. It was very roomy, and a great size for 4 adults.
Perfect Getaway Spot!
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
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!
Better Than Expected!
Awesome location...able to walk to beach and downtown. Clean and well stocked.
Comfortable beds with attention to details. Plenty of Soft towels and great water pressure. Appreciated the reverse osmosis water. Quiet neighborhood with plenty of parking. Will definitely rent again! Thank You Grace!
Great location, close to the beach and commercial district
Nice two bedroom, very nice private patio and private parking
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!
