Stylish Cottage Retreat by the Sea 2 in Charming Carpinteria

Stylish Cottage Retreat by the Sea 2 in Charming Carpinteria

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 1, 2015
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-5)

This charming and stylish, beautifully refurbished 1920's beach cottage is 2 blocks from Carpinteria State Beach, 1 block from Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Reserve, and a few blocks from the heart of town. Included bikes, beach wagon, beach chairs, boogie board and cooler all make a fun-filled day at the beach effortless. Rinse off the day in our hot water, outdoor shower when you return.

We were honored to have our cottages (#336069 & #248884) chosen to fill the 'Little Gem' category of Carpinteria Beautiful's annual Home and Garden Tour in April 2012. They were also featured in Carpinteria Magazine's winter 2010 edition.

The cottage features tasteful furnishings and decor, refinished hardwood floors throughtout, central heat, ceiling fans in the bedrooms, and all the comforts of home. Beautiful, original paintings by local artists adorn the walls. There is a bedroom with a queen bed and another with a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full bed on the bottom. A lovely patio in the yard with an outdoor dining table is the perfect spot for a sunset dinner. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There is a fully upgraded kitchen with stone countertops and new appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave and ice maker. You will also find a washer and dryer for your convenience. We offer a library of DVD's, wireless internet, and nationwide long distance calling at no additional charge. Games and books are in the cupboard for mellow days around the house.

The surrounding neighborhood is very peaceful and the neighbors are friendly. There are several antique shops and wonderful restaurants within walking distance, as well as nature trails and bird watching one block away. Or, hop on the bikes and head to town! Thursday afternoons offer a fresh Farmers Market. The town of Santa Barbara is a short drive and hosts a zoo, museums, shopping, golf, art events, botanical gardens, the Queen of the Missions, wine tasting and more! Stop in Summerland for great antiquing, then glamorous, celebrity-filled Montectio along the way.

Our cottage offers a charming place to stay while on your vacation. Make it your home-away-from-home!

About the Owner

We bought 2 neglected, unloved cottages on one lot 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. We expertly and extensively refurbished them thoughout, upgrading EVERYTHING and making them very livable and lovely. We love to share them with people that will appreciate the quality and care we put into our charming cottages. (SEE VRBO 248884 for the other cottage).

Best homecoming VRBO a girl could ask for!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 was difficult to find space for, especially to eat around a table together. We were so thrilled to find a rental that not only could sleep 3 kids but that had both an indoor & outdoor eating space for us. We were able to spend Christmas in my hometown and host guests while we were the guests in this immaculately appointed cottage. By day two, we were convinced this was the perfect get away place as we used the indoors, patio, beach gear and washer/dryer to enjoy an 80° day in December! My son asked if we could come back every year. To top it all off, a friend brought us a gift of marmalade made by the same woman who wrote the article on the cottages' renovation that's listed in the binder. It was a Christmas we will never forget. Thank you.

Quiet Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I had been planning for a quiet get away for my birthday to celebrate with my family. A friend mentioned Kathy's Cottage in Carpenteria and it sounded ideal. It was. From the moment I walked in it I knew it was exactly what I was hoping for. The house is kept very clean and tidy. It has everything you could need so next time I'll just bring my wallet and swim trunks. The house was actually closer to the beach than I had thought originally and the neighborhood was very quiet at night. Kathy also supplies pretty much everything for a day at the beach including bikes. And the walk to the center of town is only a 10 minute walk (if that). The house itself was very comfortable and I felt very at home.

I would recommend Kathy's cottage to anyone that really wants to enjoy a peaceful weekend by the beach. Carpenteria is very quaint and I find myself missing it. I plan on returning with my family very soon.

Memorable Mother's Day!

Memorable Mother's Day!

This was our first stay at this property and it didn't disappoint. The renters are extremely easy to communicate with and the property was superb. The attention to detail by the renters is bar none. Any thing you might need for a beach getaway is available. Steps away from the beach and the town. We will most definitely be back - we had a fantastic time!

Charming Cottage - Close to Town and Beach

  • 5 of 5
Our family (parents and teenager) stayed here in May and we highly recommend the property. It is a short walk to town and beach. Very clean and well-equipped with lovely furnishings (several notches above standard rentals). Lots of thoughtful touches that make stay easy (e.g., recommendations for things to do, restaurants; detailed instructions on how to operate cable, wireless, etc.). Nice owner - easy to deal with. Hope to return!

Corner Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in Carpinteria, and could absolutely live in the "Corner Cottage." Everything was exactly the same as described -- maybe even better than described, and the owner is efficient, friendly and helpful. We took the train from Los Angeles and were able to easily walk to the cottage and everywhere else we wanted to go. We sincerely hope to return to this very place!

Really Relax

  • 5 of 5
Just finished our stay at the cottage for a week and had a wonderful experience. This cottage is well laid out and well appointed. We were two adults and a toddler, we had plenty of room inside and the yard outside was a nice plus and nicely landscaped. The beds and linens are quality, and so are the fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the quiet beach town. Everything is in walking distance, train station, beach, downtown. You can also enjoy the cottage as it is a nice place to hang out.

Location

From the Owner

Being in Carpinteria is like stepping back in time. It's a classic Southern California beach town that has retained is relaxed and easy charm. Life is mellow in Carp. The beach is amazing and there are many good restaurants nearby. We live in nearby Santa Barbara.

Amenities

From the Owner

We love to spend the day at the beach, walk home for a nap, then clean up and walk into town for a cocktail at Sly's or a yummy dinner at Corktree Cellars. Watching the kids swim to the platforms and splash around with all of the other kids always puts a smile on my face. Morning bird watching at the Salt Marsh is the perfect way to start the day.
