About Bob Carpenter

Our family purchase this home in 2014 and decided to share it with friends. We are residents in nearby Los Altos, and try to use our home as often as possible.

Bob Carpenter purchased this house in 2014

Why Bob Carpenter chose La Selva Beach

We have always loved Santa Cruz county and spent time looking for the right spot. La Selva has the perfect balance of proximity, and seclusion. From the nearby beach access you can walk 7 miles to the Parajo River, or the opposite direction toward Santa Cruz and get to New Brighton Beach.

Absolutely restful beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Robert met us exactly at time arranged. House is well laid out with main floor kitchen, living. Bedrooms all downstairs which makes for quiet and restful sleep. Back deck is spacious and has a beautiful view of the ocean with lots of room and chairs.

Though this property is not "beach front" it is close enough to walk. Be sure to borrow the beach chairs to sit down on the beach.

Grocery supply about a 10 minute drive North and great fresh seafood about 15 minutes drive south to Moss Landing. Oysters, salmon on the deck overlooking the ocean. Happy New Year

Another fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our second week at this lovely beach house! It is so spacious and just perfect for our family. Our grandkids had the best time sleeping in their private suite, the closet! Yes, it's that big! The owner is more than accommodating and so friendly and helpful. The home is well stocked with everything you need! My husband loved the Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs which we filled with a couple of cold beers and camera for the short trek to the beach. We love to cook and the generous kitchen has plenty of room for 3 cooks which makes meal prep a breeze. The mornings and evenings on the deck were a highlight this year as we saw several whales migrating during the week we were there. We are already looking forward to next year! Thank You Carpenter Family!

Spacious, cozy beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed here for 5 nights, and really enjoyed everything about the house and the location. The house was spacious, clean and the outside deck had a separate sitting area with outdoor heater. The walk to the beach was very short, and due to the limited public access (by car), the beach was not packed with people, and the beach was super clean (not a lot of seaweed, etc). Just beautiful. The more scenic path to the beach winds down a dirt path by the Manresa campgrounds where you can see tons of little wild bunnies hopping around.

The master bedroom was fantastic and the bed super cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking basics, and had all the amenities you could ask for.

The heated pool and hot tub were just a short walk away and was definitely an added bonus for the kids. I would definitely recommend this property.

Wonderful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

La Selva Beach Getaway is a delight to stay in, we had a wonderful time. The kitchen was so well appointed, we were so impressed. Having 4 adults and 3 kids there we needed lots of towels and there were plenty which made this mom very happy. The beds were comfy and there was even extra linen, pillows and blankets. Our kids loved the tub of board games, the heated community pool and the basketball hoop. Beautiful views, great location and wonderful interior. Bob was a gracious and kind host and made us feel welcome and at home. Thank you so much, Bob!

Very nice house, and awesome beach nearby

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 3 young children, nanny and a friend for one week this past June. It was very spacious and comfortable, and the ocean view from the deck is beautiful. We even saw a pod of whales from the deck one of the days. The house is large enough that 4 adults + 3 kids didn't feel crowded.

The beach is about a 5 minute walk away, and since the road leading up to it is a private access road, the beach itself was not packed with crowds - even at the height of summer vacation. Sand Dollar Beach is a wide, sandy beach that reminded me of the beaches I grew up going to on the East Coast.

The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the cool night time air made sleeping there very nice. All of the comforts we needed were generously stocked - plenty of sheets, bath towels, beach towels, and kitchen appliances/utensils.

Bob was extremely pleasant and easy to deal with, and was very responsive to questions and requests for advice on things to do in the area, etc. Overall, renting from Bob and staying at the house was a great experience, and we highly recommend it.
