We have spent four months here each of the last 9 years so it has been more like home than home!! The owners have been so accommodating that we've actually stayed in the same unit each year at our request. They've gone out of their way to make us feel welcome. We absolutely love the area and 'Seashell Apt.' is a wonderful spot to enjoy the beach and the entire town. We highly recommend it to one and all!!

What a great owner! Couldn't be nicer, more responsive to requests. Thanks so much, d (I'm adding people with disabilities as a recommendation because I was accommodated in a beautiful ground-floor apartment with no problem, and I have a disability.)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Dolly.
The photo of the pool was taken from unit #20, which has that view. It is an upstairs unit, versus your rental, which I think, was downstairs, corner.
The pool is heated in summer, nice and warm, and most people love soaking & just haveing fun! For laps, the Carpinteria Community pool is just blocks away,with Aquatic fitness classes too.
(They also have 2 tennis courts).
Our pool is mainly for fun after a day at the beach! (We do not heat our pool in winter). Adults enjoy sunning on lounge chairs around the pool, relaxing within our garden-pool experience, seeing lots of blue sky, or lounging, while the kids play in the warm water,

Regarding the furnishings, every Spring we rehab our furnishings to update for summer.
But you get what you pay for, & our rates are usually the best around! Our units are nice sized, well designed, comfortable, & affordable. Everything you need should be there!
We book a lot of families, so after a summer of sold out units, we do a Spring rehab, & buy new, whatever is needed. We keep in mind your rental costs, knowing that elegance can be expensive!
Lots of families with kids visit us, Lots of hikers & beach-goers!
Any time you feel something needs to be replaced, please let us know.
We try to keep our furnishings user friendly, so you do not lose your security deposit or get extra charges for cleaning.

Yes, our Management Team REALLY ! cares about your enjoyment at Seashell. We are owners who love being at Seashell too!
After all, having a good time is what it is all about!
So, we are happy you enjoyed your stay at Seashell!

Family friendly and so much fun!

My family rented 3 condos at the Seashell last summer and we had a blast! The condos are clean, close to the pool, and close to the laundry facilities. It is just a short walk to the beach and very close to many restaurants. The owners are friendly, helpful, and always around to answer a question or help you out in anyway they can! I highly recommend this property.

Stopped there for a few days to relax after a long trip from France. Everything was wonderful from the warm welcome to the apt location steps from the beach. The apt is very comfortable, bright with all the amenities you may want! Made it very easy to get over jetlag!

10th summer at Seashell Beach

  • 5 of 5
This was our 16th summer going to Carpinteria and the 10th summer at Seashell Beach Apts. We stayed in several different condos in Carp until we found Seashell, it is our summer home.
The location is excellent, 1 block to the ‘World’s Safest Beach’, a block to the Salt Marsh preserve, short walk to ‘The Spot’ (excellent burgers and fries) and downtown.
The owners Adrea and Herb have been excellent hosts and have always made us feel at home and if there has been a problem, they are quick to fix it. Over the years, we have stayed in several of the apartments, all of which are nicely furnished.
One of the nice things about Seashell is the family atmosphere. From when our children were small to now that they are in college, they enjoy their time at the property. They do have a nice pool and barbeque area.
We have met many wonderful people while using the grill cooking some fresh local fish purchased at Santa Barbara Fish Market (in the SB harbor), well worth the 15 minute drive.
All we can say is Seashell Apts and Carpinteria go together like bread and butter.

Clean air and nature all around you! A small friendly town, where you can walk to everything! Lots of big blue sky and quiet. At night you see the stars sparkle. Beautiful sunsets too. A walk back in time to a place that feels removed from pollution, noise, and traffic. An indoor- outdoor environment that feels so good!
