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.

A beautiful, peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time staying at the property, and we can't wait to return. The setting is picturesque, and we've come to adore its charms and quirks. It's an ideal homebase for the beach (Rincon is wonderful) or hiking. And ending each day with a soak in the Japanese-style soaking tub is divine. My husband and I have visited with friends, family and, most recently, solo, and it has been marvelous and memorable each time. We love this special spot!
