My family and I loved our stay at this adorable little house in a peaceful, gorgeous, secluded little area tucked away behind an industrial park just on the outskirts of Carpinteria. I know the industrial park thing sounds strange, but it wasn't weird at all because the little gated community where the house is located is so lovely and separate from everything that we didn't even notice. And it meant that everything was incredibly quiet and away from people. We hardly even saw anyone the whole trip, which gave us a nice sense of privacy.
The place itself is exactly as photographed. Very well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked enough with plates, bowls, utensils, etc for us to bring in a meal and eat at home one night and for my parents to make french press coffee every morning.
Both beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was huge, and the family area was cozy. We brought my dog and she loved running around the backyard.
If you want to be able to walk to anything, that's not really possible here as you'd have to cross the highway, which means walking farther north or south on the main road that runs along the coastal highway. But my mom went for runs every morning and said it's a great location to run in because it's near the bluffs.
We loved taking the car just a few minutes down the road to the bluffs for long walks on the shore with the dog every day and we enjoyed exploring Carpinteria for food, etc. Just a short drive, but not walking distance. Perhaps a bike would have been a good alternative form of transport.
If you want a pretty, quiet place away from everything but still close to town, I would definitely recommend this house.
The house is lovely. Well done, great kitchen, bathroom, heating system, etc. You must drive to to town or to buy a quart of milk. The people who run it are very nice although fairly non responsive when it came to having a key that didn't work or the cable system that was out. I was told to fiddle with the key. And the handyman showed me how to fiddle with the key. I shouldn't have to fiddle with a key for 20 minutes each day for 7 days if it doesn't work. I left the house open for most of the time I was there. The same with the cable. Fiddle with the wires. Didn't work. For $200 a night, it wasn't worth it.
Absolutely prefect! I highly recommend this listing. Thank you!
Another wonderful stay at the guest house while we attended Paretn's Weekend at our son's school. Pristine and quiet. The perfect place to come back to after a busy day. Had a lovely dinner outside. There is Public Market in Santa Barbara where you can pick up everything you need for all your meals. The kitchen is fully stocked for laying the table. Such a great alternative to eating out.
The guest house was just as descibed. Immaculate, very private, all modern fixtures and appliances. Bed and bedding supremely comfortable. Maya had everything ready and was accessible for any questions. The neighborhood is off the beaten track and in a light industrial but very quiet area and once through the gates you feel like you are tucked away. It is a sanctuary. But you are also just minutes away from downtown Carpenteria and 15 minutes from Montecito/Santa Barbara and an 8 min run from the beautiful bluffs of Carpinteria. I ran each morning.
Great first Airbnb experience! Lovely little guesthouse tucked in an unexpected location, but very private and quiet. Lovely little patio area and grounds were a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings. House was a great little size for a small family to stay. We traveled with our 4 year-old and she especially enjoyed watching for hummingbirds outside the window. We were impressed with the higher end finishes in the home- although not unexpected based on previous reviewers. We appreciated the bonus of having dimmer switches everywhere. Super handy for a little one in the dark in a strange place. Kitchen and bathroom were nicely equipped with most everything you would need. We timed out trip right to enjoy the Avocado Festival in Carpinteria. A really nice vacation- we would stay here again!
This two bedroomed cottage is an oasis of the finest quality. The garden is magical especially in the dimming light of the afternoon. Sitting outside in the evening for dinner is serene and calming. It is located a few minutes outside the town of Carpinteria, which makes it blissfully quiet at night. The fittings are of the best quality as other reviewers have already commented. This might not be for everyone but I cycled to Rincon Point beach most days. This is one of the best places I have stayed at on the West coast. Thanks Maya!
