Magical condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5
I did a long-term winter stay at this wonderful one bedroom condo - literally 100 steps from the beach. Tea every morning on the sand overlooking the Santa Barbara channel. Resting in the sun. Everything is in walking distance and there are what feels like dozens of great restaurants. Got to see seals calving and dolphins swimming. The town is peaceful and easy going and there are great coffee shops. All the comforts of home in the unit. It is really like living at home with internet, full kitchen, bathroom, and loft for home away working if you need to. I would highly recommend for a couple or family with two or less children. Nicely decorated and very homey. Emily was fantastic. I think Emily's response time and hosting would totally make me do this with her again. She is fantastic. I have rented several VRBO's and she is beyond excellent when it comes to being a rental owner. This unit is going to be very popular so reserve early!!!

The condo was especially clean and comfortable and just a short walk to the beach. Emily was a pleasure to work with and was easily and readily available when we had the need to make contact

We would book this condo again.

Great place to spend our anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Sandpiper was the perfect location to enjoy Carpenteria. Just a block and a half from the wonderful, sandy beach and walking distance to all the great little restaurants Carp has to offer. The unit itself was very comfortable, well-provisioned and clean. The bed was very comfortable - very important when you have any type of back problems! Emily - thank you for making this unit available and for being so easy to work with. It was great!

Comfortable, clean, and, mmmm...homey

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved our stay in this quaint, clean, and well provisioned condo in Carpinteria. It is perfectly situated and close to the beach, the town center (with a Vons grocery store [be sure to bring a bag - Carpinteria is bag free]), and the highway. After spending the day in the sun, shopping in Santa Barbara, or visiting with family, it was wonderful to come home to this comfortable condo, put our feet up and relax.
Additionally, coordinating the rental with Emily, the owner, was low stress and easy. She was efficient and responsive throughout the whole process and our stay.
When my husband and I return to the area, we will surely check to see if this property is available. It is way better than staying at a hotel, with a more reasonable rate!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
Everything was great. The condo was just as it looks on the pictures, which is great. Everything you need. And close to so much good stuff. The beach, the shops and restaurants, the seal rookery, the salt marsh, and a short drive to Santa Barbara and wine country. Several boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas - and Emily was the best person to work with, going out of her way to resolve any issues.

Location

From the Owner

With retirement looming, we wanted to be able to spend some of the year in a beach town and searched the California coast. When we found Carpinteria three years ago, we knew we had found the perfect place. We wanted a quiet complex at the beach and easy walking distance to town. We have friends and family in southern California and we wanted to be able to take the train to visit them and to take advantage of all the region has to offer without having to drive.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Santa Barbara at 22 Miles Nearest Barpub : Island Brewing Company at 0.25 Miles Nearest Train : Amtrak at 0.25 Miles Nearest Motorway : 101 at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : The Spot at 0.1 Miles Nearest Beach : Carpinteria at 0.05 Miles Car: not necessary

. Carpinteria is a special place unlike any other..a quiet beach town without large hotels or resorts, yet close to larger cities...12 miles to Santa Barbara...17 miles to Ventura...22 miles to Ojai...84 miles to Los Angeles. You can leave your car in the covered carport and walk to town for shopping and restaurants...or walk to the Amtrak station and take the train to Santa Barbara for the zoo, the Mission, Stearns Wharf...or take a meditative walk through the Salt Marsh...or hike to see the seals on the bluff... or rent a bike and visit Rincon or Padaro Lane. If you decide to drive, have lunch in Ojai and rent a boat on Lake Cachuma or check out Solvang and the wineries.

Amenities

From the Owner

After two years of looking for a place to buy, we fell in love with this condo. It is the only unit in the building that has a full bedroom as well as a loft bedroom. Since we stay here several weeks a year ourselves, the condo is a home, not just a rental property. We want our guests to feel the same way.
