About Linda Stanton

Linda Stanton purchased this condo in 2004

Why Linda Stanton chose Santa Barbara Area

We love Carpinteria! We enjoy spending beach time with our family and friends. We love the quaint town.

What makes this condo unique

It's an amazing beach where kids of all ages can splash, swim, boogie board, surf, and just play in the sand! We love that it's easy to walk or ride bikes to get around the cozy town. Once we arrive we don't have to drive to get around!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Linda and Rick, Thank you so much for another wonderful week here in Carp! We all had lots of fun at the beach. Our grandson really liked boogie boarding (his first time) and our granddaughter really liked the pool, the ocean, building sandcastles and going to the park. Plus it was great not to have to bring our bond beach chairs.

wonderful beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time at this sweet beach condo. It was clean and well stocked. The owners were very helpful. Adorable town and the property is steps from a beautiful beach. Loved it! My 3 year old keeps asking when we can go back.

Nice accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This condo is clean and supplied with everything needed to be comfortable. The location is close to the beach and quiet. The only reason I gave it one less star is that you cannot hear or see the ocean.

Owner's Response: Hi Celeste, It was a pleasure working with you and I am so glad you had such a great time! Thank you for your review. To clarify you can totally see the ocean and hear the ocean from the patio. You cannot see the ocean from inside the condo. If you open the window in the courtyard bedroom you can usually always here the waves crashing on the shore.

Nice and comfortable location close to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 5) spent 3 nights here. We enjoyed stepping into swinwear and step down to the beach for a swim (for a Norwegian the water is just nice and warm) and walk along the beach.

The house was very comfortable with all equipment need to make our own meals such as breakfast and barbeque dinner enjoyed at the patio.

A Week of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a wonderful week at this property. Enjoyed walks to the beach and to town. This condo has everything you could need. Cook in, barbecue or go to one of the many locations in town to eat. The owners are extremely helpful and kind. Bicycles were offered, but we didn't have time to ride them with everything else we did. Great time in a great place. Hope to get back again soon!

Great condo, great complex, great location!

  • 4 of 5

I've been taking my two young daughters up to Carp for Spring break for a few years now. This year was definitely the best yet for us, thanks in no small part to this really great condo. We all found our beds to be comfortable, which for me is a pretty big deal. I have chronic back issues and when I travel I'm pretty much resigned to experiencing some severe discomfort. But not here. The girls shared the bedroom off the living room, while I took the courtyard bedroom. They both said the bed was extremely comfortable. It's good be young, because when I laid on it I found very little support. The bed in the courtyard room, however, was perfect for me. Firm, with a lot of support. I slept well each night, with the window open to hear the crash of the waves less than a block away.

The layout of the condo was perfect for us. Nice large, well-stocked kitchen with good appliances, well-appointed living room with a big sofa (not much back support here, truth be told, which is why I deducted one star) dining table, TV, Cable, DVD player and a great assortment of board games and books. And then the patio, which is fantastic. I used it as my office for our stay, (the girls were on vacation, not me!), and it was great to have my coffee out there. the view of the ocean right down the street is nice, but's the view of the mountains that's the real star. Wow! That view never got old. And with the salt marsh directly across the street, the stars at night were pretty amazing (though I wish there wasn't a street light out there). And all of that is not to even mention the nice surprise of the gift basket that was waiting for us! Thanks Linda & Rick!!

As for the condo complex, we loved it. It was a little chilly during our stay, so the kids preferred the pool/hot tub to the ocean most days. The laundry area is just a few steps away from the condo, and while I didn't use it during this stay it was always super clean when I went through on my way to the parking area. The grounds of the complex as a whole are very nicely kept, and though there were quite a few kids around it was never very noisy at all.

And, of course, the location. You just can't beat it. Yeah, you could be closer to town, but then you wouldn't be right across from the salt marsh and you'd miss seeing the herons and hearing the loons and seeing those stars! Everything is very much in walking distance, and the quiet at night was awesome.

Thanks for a wonderful stay. We'll be back!

Great Condo! Steps to the Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my family of five. Decor is nice and the big patio is an added bonus over the smaller balconies on the upstairs units. Check in instructions and process was clear and easy. We'll definitely stay here again.
