Great location. A couple miles from the beach. Great house with a great layout. Open and inviting. Great host. Mike made sure we settled in comfortably. Great price. Less expensive than any hotel in the area.

We were spending all of our time with family during our stay in Carpinteria. We didn't want to spend time addressing our housing issues.

Mike's place was ideal in so many ways! We were there with our daughter's family, including her two boys. The layout of the house was perfect - open main area but secluded sleeping areas. Attractive rooms. Beds and furniture were really comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make family meals, and we ate them out back every night in a lovely setting. (Mike invited us to benefit from his garden and his romaine yielded us a delicious Caesar salad!) There were indoor and outdoor toys for the children - a total bonus! This is a lived-in family home - I’m sure that added to our overall sense of comfort - in a quiet, pleasant neighborhood. We walked to the shopping area (with a Starbucks) a few times, and the drive to the beach was under 5 minutes. (Really!) Mike was one of the best hosts we've EVER encountered. Though we never met him, he was remarkably responsive to even our smallest questions both before and during our stay. Because some high temps were forecast, he left fans for us to use. He clearly wanted us to be comfortable and enjoy our time in their home . . . and we DID! It didn't take us long to feel at home there. I would be very happy to return there on a future visit to Carp.

Beautiful home in a perfect little town! This house was everything and more my family needed to visit the beach. My children LOVED the backyard, while my wife and I enjoyed all the comforts of home in this great house! Very spacious and great amenities for families. Mike was awesome to communicate with and provided everything we needed. We can't wait to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Carp!

Mike was Awesome! My family and I traveled for a baseball tournament and it worked out great! The kids LOVED the backyard. The home is gorgeous and really was in the perfect location. It had easy access to the freeway and was so close to the beach. Thanks Mike and family!

My husband and I rented the place when my in-laws came into town over the holidays. The house was very comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown Carp. Mike did a great job of checking in to see that we had everything we needed. The house gets some beautiful sun in the backyard through the morning, so it's a great place to lounge with a book or to have a long chat. The kitchen is well-stocked with utensils and cook/bakeware and the bbq is perfect for grilling up a meal. Oh, and I highly recommend stopping in at Crushcakes for their amazing coffee. We'd definitely stay here again and recommend this for your stay!

We are a family who loves the outdoors, the beach, and the mountains. We absolutely thrive in our great Carpinteria home. We love the Central Coast of California and truly believe Carpinteria is one of the best beach towns in the world. We are originally from Vancouver, Canada but have been in the Santa Barbara area for over five years.
