Carpinteria House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 3 bathroom zen retreat with japanese bath and mountain views.

A sweet, gentle canyon is the nesting place for our custom built retreat that promises to soothe and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Located just a few minutes from downtown Carpinteria and Rincon Point, you will feel as if you have come to a little Shangri La far far away. Once you have soaked in the Japanese Bath and put on your yukata robe, you will not want to leave. We suggest you bring food but if you feel like leaving, great restaurants in Santa Barbara, Ojai and of course Carpinteria await you. Perfect for that special weekend for one or two couples.

Why Grace Jackson chose Santa Barbara Area

The canyon where Shiatsu Rincon is located is a magical place. We are constantly visited by hawks, hummingbirds, and butterflies, and occasionally a neighbor will ride over on his mule to share a glass of wine.

What makes this house unique

Aside from the beautiful views you see from almost every room, every detail in the house is also beautiful and thoughtfully made. From the curved stairwell, to the circular tower ceiling, or blue tiled bathroom, you will feel the craftsmanship and care that was placed into every room.

This place is magical

This place is beautiful, and serene, set in a canyon right outside of town. If you are looking to relax, this is the place to do it!

Weekend get away in Carpinteria, CA

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Shiatzu Rincon was wonderful. My wife and I and our two young adults truly experienced the "ZEN" feeling of relaxing, focus, and fellowship in this one of a kind retreat. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the indoor jacuzzi totally with adjacent outdoor fountain and stream... amazing! We highly recommend this experience... we only stayed two nights... five or more might have been better. We found a home away from home worth re-visiting.

Peaceful and Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Such a magical place. Will surely return. We went for a sisters weekend. And the house was perfect for a restful, relaxing stay. Everything was beautifully arranged and the tub room was a fun addition. The grounds and surrounding neighborhood make for a unique and special experience. Easy to get into town, the beach or a hike, but could just as well bring a book and never leave. Three of us fit very comfortably. Thank you!

Absolutely fabulous getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This property could not have delivered what we were looking for more perfectly. Charming and full of character, spotlessly clean, comfortable, dreamy views and landscape, and responsive owners who made us feel so at home. We left immediately looking to return.

One of our most favorite vrbo's of all time.

Idyllic and beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

This place is such a unique, beautiful hidden gem. From the moment we pulled onto the property, we loved it. The grounds are stunning and everything about it really is serene. The property and home are spacious and it was a great getaway spot for us and our friends whom we traveled with. The bedrooms are private and the Japanese spa room is maybe the best room ever. It was great to wake up in the morning and be staring out a big open window to the gardens. We found the amenities adequately stocked for the small amount of cooking we did. The communication with the owners was great and timely as well. We would eagerly return and hope to soon. Thanks for a great stay!

Zen bliss...

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous spot to get away from it all. Close to town but completely peaceful and secluded. The spa is pure bliss. Cannot wait to return.
