Hi - I am a Realtor (23 yrs) ex Remax & Sotheby's in the area coming from the Pharmaceutical Industry being Asst. Manager for the Caribbean Region for Ciba Geigy and then Smithkline Beecham (pharma). Have lived in Carpinteria (for 22yrs) and just love it and highly recommend it to all. I play tennis golf hike mountains (highest peak 19,350ft - Kilimanjaro & have an intense knowledge of the area while also being a world traveler. Just got back from the El Camino (5 weeks hiking in France & Spain). I can speak Spanish well & Afrikaans and look forward to meeting you when you arrive.

                                                                This year was our third visit to Carpinteria and we've stayed in different places each time. We really liked the proximity of this house to everything - it was easy to walk to the beach, the park, and the restaurants on Linden Ave. The layout of the house was really nice for giving our kids their own spaces to hang out and for sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed. Stella was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely come back to this house; it was a great fit for our family.

                                                                Owner's Response:

Cute cottage with a great front porch to sit and visit and feel the ocean air. The entire house was comfortable and easy......a home away from home. We will be back...we found our house by the beach!
