About Linda Stanton

Linda Stanton purchased this condo in 2004

Why Linda Stanton chose Carpinteria

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.

Perfect Christmas at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Rick's condo in Carp was the perfect spot for our family to come together for Christmas this year. The beds are comfy, the views beautiful. The kitchen is well stocked, we made our Christmas cookies and Christmas dinner, no problem. There were some pretty scary fires burning through the area prior to our trip from out of state, Linda was amazing at reassuring us about our stay. We hope to be back!

When I saw all the great reviews I wondered if it really was that good. Oh my goodness! The reviews are very accurate! The location is so close to the beach we would walk there with our shoes off. The owners leave every possible beach toy, chair, cooler etc. etc. you could need. Just pack your suits and you are good to go. My girls and I were also able to simply walk into town. When staying here, you feel like the owners really do want you here and really want you to enjoy Carpineria. Were are a family of five with three little ones 10, 8, and 5. It was a perfect size for us and my 5 year old found the cot very comfortable. I already have plans to return here with a couple friends for a mommy get away trip and are hoping to stay in this condo again! I truly recommend this place as it really is that good! Thank you so much Rick and Linda, we couldn't have had a better stay!

The perfect spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous spot! The house is well equipped, clean and beautiful. The BBQ in the patio at sunset is to die for... Everything you need to spend a wonderful time with family!!! Our son enjoyed body boarding thanks for the wetsuits because the water is very cold!! We will surely come back!!!

Pleasant and ideally located flat near the beach

  • 4 of 5

we stayed there for 4 nights in October with our 3 small children. The flat was very clean when we arrived, the kitchen is very well furnished, so we could eat in, the proximity and the fact we can use bikes (even if they are rusty by the sand/see) made our trip almost car-free which we appreciated very much. We also could enjoy the sunset whilst barbecuing. Overall a very pleasant stay.

+ we could add an extra bed (hidden in the smaller bedroom)

+ loads of beach items at our disposal for the kids to play with

- after a day of using the flat dog hair were everywhere (we don't have a dog)

- the bed in the master bedroom was not comfortable.

Could NOT have been better

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo! We were attending a wedding in Santa Barbara and were able to both enjoy that beautiful city (15 min drive) as well as easily walk to the Carp beach multiple times (one block away). We have 2 children and the beach accessories that come with this condo as well as easy access to the beach were the gems (all sizes of wet suits, boogie boards, beach toys, umbrellas, etc. not to mention multiple bicycles to enjoy). The owners Linda and Rick as well as the cleaning woman Ivonne were super nice and very easy to work with. I'd give this place 6 stars if I could.

Lovely beach condo (within metres of the beach)

  • 4 of 5

We loved the decor and everything was very convenient. Kitchen was fully stocked and there was a gift basket as a welcome. Chairs, parasol and beach towels came in very handy. We also swam in the pool, because the weather was hot. Would have loved to stay longer!
