vacation rental description

Come experience one of California's best kept secrets! Seashell Beach
Rentals is located half a block from the beach in the popular resort
community of Carpenteria, California. Recognized as one of the safest
and cleanest beaches in Southern California, Carpenteria has also
been named one of top 20 best swimming beaches in America. A perfect
place for family reunions!

Seashell Beach Rentals is tranquil and quiet with no highway
traffic. It's the perfect place for those who are looking to unwind,
relax and recharge.

Seashell Beach Rentals is a short walk from the heart of Carpenteria,
Linden Avenue, which offers a variety of antique shops, restaurants,
grocery markets, and a movie theater. While surrounded by the beauty
of the ocean, lush parks, protected wetlands and the majestic Santa
Ynez Mountains, Seashell Beach Rentals is also only a ten minute
drive to Downtown Santa Barbara and an hour and a half drive (or
train ride) from Los Angeles.

Seashell Beach Rentals is family owned and operated. We will do
everything to ensure that your stay in will be unforgettable!

Home away from home

Review submitted: April 11, 2014   Date of arrival: January 1, 2014

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.)

Great location ! Not sure how they got the pool to look so lovely in that photo ?? It's much smaller than it looks !
Very close to the beach and to the shops and restaurants.
The Apartment needed some up dates but it was nice for what we needed .
The property manager was great .

Recommended for: girls getaway

Owners 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!
