Great location, great host, great home and vacation! will have to plan another trip to the area
This home was perfect for our family. We were traveling with three kids (ages 4, 2 and 1) and so a hotel stay would've been very difficult. Not only did we get a couple extra bedrooms for our kids to sleep in, but there is a great yard for the kids to play in and even some toys to keep them entertained. The yard is also wonderful for adults, a shaded patio and comfortable seating. It's a great place to relax in the evening. The house is easy to get to and is just a short drive to pretty much anything you need. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is on a cul-de-sac which is nice. The house is comfortable and we felt at home here. The host was great about communicating with us before, during and after our stay and wanted to know that we had what we needed. We would stay here again.
My 7 family members enjoyed your home, despite the heavy wedding activities going on all weekend. Would definitely return, they all said!
Mike is a charming host. The location is great, a quiet cul de sac minutes drive from town and the beach. The backyard is great. Roku streaming channels and cable were provided on a large TV screen in the spacious and comfortable living room. There are a few things that didn't work, and room for improvement, and I've let Mike know that in a private message. All in all, the condition of the home and the available beds were not really well-suited for 4 adult women, but I do think it was fairly priced. If Mike makes the repairs and improvements I have suggested, I'm sure that the Casa de Myra will be a nice alternative to the rising hotel costs in Carpinteria.
Nancy, thanks for your response. We're glad you enjoyed the location and the space. We did have a look at the garbage disposal and it was working fine. The control is a push button right beside the sink, not a conventional switch, which is where the confusion was. We do list the rental as ideal for 4-6 people. The beds in the 3-bedrooms are as advertised (Cal King, Queen, and Twin respectively). Again, appreciate the feedback and hope to you see you again!
The house was great, even better than expected. Everything was very comfortable and the home was well stocked with the essentials. The host was available when something came up and willing to work with us.
Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen, sehr schönen Wohngegend in Carpinteria, Kalifornien. In der näheren Umgebung gibt es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants. Der wunderschöne Strand und das Zentrum von Carpinteria sind in 15 Minuten zu Fuss erreichbar. Das Haus ist wunderschön und genau so wie Mike es beschrieben hat. Wir haben die Zeit zu Weihnachten sehr genossen. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen und würden gerne nochmal wiederkommen! Es war ein traumhafter "Winter"-Urlaub im wunderschönen, sonnigen Kalifornien! Mike ist ein toller und zuvorkommender Gastgeber, der uns bestens mit allen relevanten Informationen über das Haus versorgt hat.
Thanks again Frank, Vera, Ken, Nico, and Hannelore! You guys were great guests and we'd love to have you back anytime. I've translated your comment using as my German is weak at best :)

"The house is situated in a quiet, very beautiful residential area in Carpinteria, California. In the vicinity there are shops and restaurants. The beautiful beach and the center of Carpinteria is just 15 minutes by foot. The house is beautiful and exactly as Mike described it. We enjoyed our time at Christmas a lot. We certainly recommend the house and would love to come back again! It was a wonderful "Winter" holiday in beautiful sunny California! Mike is a great and attentive host who provided us with everything we needed."
Nice neighborhood, close to everything. Mike was very solicitous and willing to make minor changes. Especially happy that there was infrastructure for our toddler - the crib and high chair were very helpful.
About the Host, Mike
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.
