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.

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!

Vancouver, BC

Comfortable Family Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo, and it was even better this year. Instead of driving from Vancouver, BC we flew (and saved 28 hours of driving in doing so) and this meant that we really were needful of all of the supplies provided by the owners - boards, umbrella, beach towels and toys, and tupperware for all of the beach snacks.

All of this on top of a stocked kitchen and a welcome basket upon arrival with coffee, wine, popcorn & chips made for an easy family vacation.

The only glitch this year was the new rule that the hot tub was only to be used by those fourteen years and up - this was a huge disappointment for our kids, as they loved warming up after a long afternoon in the ocean (literally three to four hours). The pool is quite warm, though, and so it served as a substitute for them.

Carpinteria and the surrounding areas are really great, and with a little research it's easy to find a few inexpensive activities (biking the Ventura River Valley Trail and visiting Ojai or various state fairs/festivals such as the Ventura State Fair or Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara) to supplement the mandatory beach time. By the way, the beach along Santa Claus Land is fantastic for body boarding as at the waves are enormous and Padaro's Burger Grill just down the way is a great go-to for a quick lunch or snack.

One last tip, if you like Mexican food make the trip to Lalo's in Ventura. Authentic and delicious food; try the shrimp cocktail!

If you are looking for a great place to stay at the beach, I highly recommend this condo. The location is awesome, and the condo is well stocked with anything and everything you will need. The owners are quick to respond if you have any questions or concerns. Our family loves this place and we are planning to reserve it again next summer!

Great Clean, Comfy, Carp Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 3rd stay at what we now affectionately call "Auntie Linda's". All the comforts of home in a prime, beautiful, and leisurely location. Couldn't ask for anything more: morning shell collecting and evening sunset watching on the beach, strolls through the salt marsh, bike rides to the seal sanctuary, walks downtown to visit fun shops and good eats, then topping each night off with a swim in the pool/ soak in the spa and watching a movie from the comfy sectional. Highlight of the summer as always!

Can't wait 'til next time!
