Recent Carpinteria reviews

  • A proper beach cottage, not a palace ... just my preference

    "Everything was great! While a few minor problems cropped up (eg, BBQ suffered from operator error), they were fixed promptly. The ocean is immediately beyond the seawall while the RR track is just behind the "guest house" After a few days I didn't notice RR noise (sad, as I love trains ... about 12 short, quiet passenger trains and 1-2 long freights/day). I had lots of guests who all loved the ambiance. Notable events ... the Rey fire caused 2pm "sunset" for a couple days ... many dolphins everyday (even spotted them surfing), not many brown pelicans this year ... saw some small (harmless) sand sharks at Sand Point (beyond the Castle) where Santa Monica Creek meets the ocean. Nice to have weekly cleaning and garden maintenance. Padaro Beach has been my go-to vacation for 50 years now! A few dogs on beach (retrievers) but not sure if OK with owner, so I did not hit check box. Disabilities OK for guest house but not main house, so mixed on whether to check the box. One could argue that OK for teenagers (volleyball, (mild, learning) surfing, paddleboards)"

  • Perfect for a long weekend.

    "This was our 2nd Labor Day Weekend stay in Carpenteria and in this unit. The building complex is medium size and so not that many people. Overall, it is very family friendly. Location is amazing as it's right across from the beach. Also, the pool is perfect if you have kids. The place itself is very clean and had all we needed. We would go back again."

  • Serene Escape

    "We were in SB recently for a week to attend a family funeral and such events are never highly anticipated "fun getaways". I very much needed a home like setting, rather than a cold and impersonal hotel - a quiet sanctuary to escape to daily, a warm environment where family could gather in comfort, serenity, peace and relaxation. We were so fortunate to find Ed and Joan's home. It's ideally placed just at the edge of Summerland and feels so tucked away and private yet easily accessible to downtown Summerland, Carpinteria, Montecito and a short skip to Santa Barbara as well as the beach. The home sits in a quiet neighborhood, set back from the street and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, a gorgeous pool and several retreat areas with ample seating and lounging opportunities providing a welcome escape every day. Stop at the Trader Joe's in SB on your way, pull-up, unpack, and unwind. We slept comfortably every night in the sumptuous beds and cooked at home daily finding everything we needed including an outdoor grill and comfortable dining areas inside and out. The backyard is truly a tranquil paradise where one could spend all day long swimming, sunning, lounging, and resting. This home could function in so many ways; a romantic getaway for two, couples escape, girlfriends weekend for three or more, writer's retreat, or as a homebase for friends and family wanting to explore and adventure in the region. The interior with two fireplaces and gathering areas would be just as cozy in the cooler winter months. The owners were very respectful of our privacy, flexible, and extremely responsive to every need or question. I wish our stay had been under more pleasant circumstances but grateful we were able to find a real home that provided genuine comfort for friends and family during a trying time."

  • Very relaxing stay.

    "We had a great time in Carpinteria. We have visited Carpinteria dozens of times, and this has been one of the nicest places we have rented. The home was charming, well equipped, and very relaxing. We were within walking distance of the places we wanted to go to in town and the beach was very accessible as well. All of my expectations were met. Thank you Patti and Don for the hospitality."
