Magnificent Zen Retreat

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

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 Carpinteria

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.

Beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful. Grace was very helpful at getting us connected with massage therapists to come to the house. The hot tub is a nice touch, although it was not big enough for my party of 4. It is definitely a 2 person hot tub. The only complaints I have are 1.) there were ants in the downstairs blue bathroom and spiders + spider webs throughout. It could use a good bug man. And 2.) there is no AC in the house. We scoured the house for fans but it was really hot during our stay. At night time, it cooled off and we opened all of the windows. Other than that, we would love to come back to this property. Just not in the summer :)

A little peace of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This place was truly amazing, i feel that the pictures online do not do it justice. The grounds and the atmosphere of the place are really magical and the view of the mountains is gorgeous. The home was super clean and very cozy. The beds, which are essentially mattresses on the floor were super comfortable and so were the pillows. Everything smelled like a spa at the house. Linens and towels were great and the kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals for 4 people. Location wise, this house feel secluded but is also about 5-10 minute drive to grocery stores and downtown where you can find many great restaurants and bars. I would absolutely recommend this place and would love to one day come back.
