Why Jay Fisher chose Santa Barbara Area

Carpinteria has retained it's original 'beach town' spirit that has been lost by other Southern California beach communities that have been over run by dense development.

Nicest place we've stayed at in Carp but VERY HOT

  • 3 of 5

It really is a beautiful place located only steps to the beach. But since u are off the beach there is no breeze so it gets extremly hot inside apt. There is a portable AC UNIT, but it doesn't have enough tubbing so it only cools off the closet. If they were to fix the HOT problem I would defineately stay again...also bring your own hangers, they have few. I bought some and left them there for the next guest

The condo was adorable and very clean!

  • 4 of 5

The property was charming with lots of flowers, maintained very well and just a short walk to the beach. The condo looked like Chip and JoAnna Gaines (Fixer Upper) themselves had decorated it....:) The upstairs bedroom bed was very cozy with nice linens. They even provided beach towels, chairs and body boards! Owners were very responsive and helpful.The only negative was that there was little airflow and while the fans and portable AC helps some, it was still hot! We still managed to have a great stay...:)

Adorable home with great location

  • 4 of 5

Very happy with the accommodations offered at this property. I enjoyed that it was just two blocks from the beach and just a few blocks from restaurants and shops. Like many homes in Carp it doesn't have house-wide AC, which made it a bit toasty to sleep up in the loft (until I discovered they have a semi-portable AC unit up there!). Owners were responsive to any questions I had and other tenants in the complex were friendly and quiet. Highly recommend :)

Property and location were as described, a sweet and well-equipped place a block from the beach. Owners were responsive and easy to work with. I'm only sad to leave this delightful spot!

Great getaway for a long beach weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I really enjoyed the Beach Cottage in Carpinteria. You can't beat a 2 minute walk to the beach and 5 min walk to the shops and restaurants in town. The owner was super friendly, communicative, and flexible on our arrival and departure times. The place was cute, clean, organized, and had all of the essentials.

Clean, Charming, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Spotless condo with charming beach decor, located a VERY short walk to the beach or town. My parents and I stayed for 2 nights in April for a quiet beach weekend, and the condo was perfect for us. The courtyard is filled with gorgeous flowers, the parking was easy, and the layout of the condo afforded enough privacy for the three of us, even though it's a loft, rather than a closed bedroom. We loved it.

Not a TON of kitchen accessories, but we didn't cook at all, so it was fine for us. Lots of restaurants and a brewery with live music with a few blocks walk.

My only criticism was that the couch should be replaced- the frame was broken (you sort of fall off the front trying to sit) and the fold out bed was terribly uncomfortable. But honestly, that's just being picky, and the place was otherwise lovely.

I'd recommend it and I would stay again!
