About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 baths just a block from downtown and a 4 minute walk to the beach

Our phase 2 of The Cottages (see vrbo #440407), recently finished December 2014. Spacious open floor living and dining room with a full kitchen and half bath on the first level. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor sleeps 6 comfortably. A large front porch with a gas grill for barbecuing is included. Having enough space to spread out, relax, and read, play, and explore - makes this beach vacation cottage the best possible home away from home.

Arrive by train at the station located just down the street. Common comments from those who have driven reveal that the car never leaves the carport. For a day trip, hop back on the train and enjoy Santa Barbara just 12 miles away and 15 miles from Ventura. For those driving, you will enjoy a garage and an additional parking space on site.

Grocery shopping - take our 3 wheel bicycle (with large rear basket) to the grocery 2 blocks away or the farmers market every Thursday in downtown Carpinteria.

Beach cruisers, boogie boards, wagon, beach chairs, beach towels, nothing has been left out. Of course there is a full size washer and dryer included.

Our property is the perfect place for any size group or just yourself. A popular stay for wedding guests, family reunions... or just a great place to enjoy a beach getaway in a low key California beach town.

About Lisa

I am a vintage real estate enthusiast, proving that bigger isn't necessarily better. This project is all about being part of a community regardless how long you stay. How great to see new friendships being made, family gatherings... this has been a very rewarding project.

Lisa purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Lisa chose Santa Barbara Area

The 8 cottages next door (phase one) was so much fun, this now completes the community project.

What makes this cottage unique

If you appreciate vintage details, you will love our place (phase one was featured on the cover of '805' magazine). Wood floors (carpet upstairs), 1950's colorful tiled floors, Big Chill appliances (my nephew's company), special furnishings from area flea markets... the kitchen is complete, television (if you need), complimentary bike cruisers, beach cruisers (including our 3 wheeler for grocery shopping) and boogie boards...

Carpinteria is the perfect California town that still feels like a step back into the 1950's. Shopping, groceries, and restaurants are plentiful. Other beaches within 2 miles include Rincon - great for surfing, as well as Santa Claus Lane where you can rent paddle boards, surfboards and other beach items.
