Our large family home, only 2 blocks from the beach, has been extensively remodeled in a beautiful beach theme. This house has been a source of joy for our family for over 50 years. We would like to enable your family to enjoy our wonderful gem just south of Santa Barbara. The house sleeps 8 with 3 large bedrooms. The two 'adult' front rooms each have a king bed sharing 1 bathroom in hallway. The back 'kids room' has a full bed plus a bunk bed (full on bottom, twin up top) with a separate bathroom. The detached garage includes amenities such as beach chairs and boogie boards. Carpinteria, only 10 miles south of Santa Barbara, is home to the Worlds Safest Beach. Carpinteria is easy to get to via highway 101 or Amtrak (We often use the Amtrak Surfliner which conveniently stops at Burbank Airport, Carpinteria, and Santa Barbara). Located in the quiet and charming Concha Loma neighborhood, our house is a short 1/2 mile peaceful walk to downtown Carpinteria with its quaint stores and restaurants (We recommend the fish tacos at Cabos Baja Grill & Cantina). Our home is a 3 bedroom, we are now offering 1 or 2 bedrooms. We will lock out the other rooms if you only want a 1 or 2 bedroom to rent. The pricing for that is under the rates.

About Lisa Carey
My sister and I grew up in this house on Calle Ocho. Having the World Safest Beach only 2 blocks from our house made for an idyllic childhood. Our homes are now many hours away, but we come back to Carpinteria as often as we can. Our typical day in Carpinteria includes cycling in the cool morning, lunch at one of the quaint Carp cafes, followed by boogie boarding at the beach in the sunny afternoon. It does not get much better.
Lisa Carey purchased this House in 1960
Why Lisa Carey chose Carpinteria
It was not until our careers took us far from Carpinteria did we realize what a special gem we have here in Carpinteria. After our parents moved on, we upgraded the house to be a special vacation retreat for both ourselves and for guests.
What makes this House unique
Our house on Calle Ocho is only a 2 hour drive from southern California, but a world away from that car-centric world. Once you arrive at our house, you won't need or want to get in your car until you reluctantly must leave town. It is short walk to the beach or into town. Or walk to the Amtrak station to take the train to Santa Barbara!

A great beach for families is only a 10 minute walk. Carpinteria's grocery stores, restaurants, and shops are also only a 10 minutes walk. Excellent jogging and bicycling. The house is spacious well set up. The afternoon sun in the front window begs one to stretch out on the sofa and relax. Loved it.
