STELLA ANDERSON purchased this house in 2002

Why STELLA ANDERSON chose Carpinteria

This is just a great family house in town yet it is so close the the bright lights of Santa Barbara (11ml) and of course Los Angeles (80 mile)

Santa Barbara is a world class destination resort with Ocean and Mountains and a superb cultural center with highly rated Film Festivals as well

What makes this house unique

Ocean & Mountians - cultural and sporting events - Film Festivals - University/study ops -

Wonderful weather all year round.

The house has a serenity and a full size iron zebra to welcome you - a large well maintained private garden - lots of off street parking - while offering all the central amenities of Carpinteria.

relaxing beach town retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this cottage walking distance from Carpenteria State Beach and so many other things over our daughter's graduation from UCSB weekend. You can walk to the beach, Channel Islands Brewery, Linden St., the main street with beachy shops and restaurants, great coffee at the Luckty Llama, a charming quilt store, the historical museum, and so much more. Something for everyone, in a very relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Part of the time we stayed, other family members camped at the state park, and we could walk or bike back and forth. There were dolphins and seals off the coast and the weather was beautiful. The house is very comfortable and airy, and Stella provided everything from baby oil to remove the tar from our feet, to toiletries if you forgot something, and beach towels. We really enjoyed bringing our bicycles and being able to ride around the darling little town. The front porch and barbeque in the yard were great for family get-togethers. Carpenteria has a more relaxed vibe than Santa Barbara, but is only a 10 minute drive from State Street, etc. (if there is no traffic). It is about 25 minutes from UCSB, although we did have one friday evening drive that took a lot longer because of weekend traffic. The master bedroom is exceptionally comfortable, the other bedroom with a full bath is also very comfortable. The third bedroom is a bit small, and in a frequently walked-through location. The front porch is a gem. Would definitely stay here again!!

Stella was wonderful. She met us giving instructions and answering all questions. The location was Perfect. 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!

Cute House

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults and one teenager in the house. It was neat and clean. The kitchen had almost everything we needed. The house was uniquely decorated. We enjoyed looking at all of the pictures, decorations, etc. It was a fun place to stay for four days. We would book it again.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We just left the cottage in Carpinteria and loved it. Plenty of room, very clean, and so convenient to everything. Stella was wonderful to work with. We really enjoyed the front porch of the cottage. We would sit and have a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. We would love to come again and stay for two weeks!
