"I have LOVED visiting Carpinteria over the years, and it's is a real treat to stay in this cozy and well-cared for beach unit. The attention to detail, privacy, views, and comfort are just some of the highlights of our stay. I will recommend this clean and bright "happy place" to anyone looking to visit Carpinteria."

"Matt and Toby were wonderful hosts! Their "downtown charmer" was perfect for my mini vacation. I enjoyed being close to town with easy access to restaurants and shops! Also their place was within walking distance to the beach. The rental is very comfortable and has nice amenities such as a small kitchen, great balcony, and a separate bedroom from the living area. I slept so well there! I hope you enjoy your time there as much as I have!"

This was our first short holiday using Airbnb. From the beginning Matt & Toby were responsive, articulate and friendly. Their detailed instructions made finding the place extremely easy and the designated parking spot was welcome as Carpinteria can get crowded during the Summer. The place was adorable. We loved the beach themed colors and decorations throughout. The kitchen was well appointed and Matt and Toby had instructions for ease of use clearly posted. The place was much roomier than we anticipated. Being downtown we were able to walk to Market Night on Thursday night! We walked to each of the vendor's booths, sampled juices and cookies while listening to live music. It was quite a lovely little family fun time.
Everything was just as described! Fantastic location! Short walk to the beach, short walk to the downtown area. Matt and Toby did everything they could to make us comfortable. They even left some toys in the apartment for our son. Would definitely come and stay again. We had a wonderful time.
Matt and Toby did an amazing job of making sure we had a comfortable place to stay while we were visiting Santa Barbara for a friend's wedding. The place was completely clean and exactly the way they portrayed it in the pictures and the description. It was a beautiful little one-bedroom place and it really was a dream airbnb experience. Tucked right in the heart of Carpenteria, we could walk to the grocery store, we could walk to restaurants, and we weren't that far from Santa Barbara where the wedding was. I would definitely come back and stay here if I were to make another trip to Santa Barbara!
I was so happy to stay in Matt and Toby's apartment again. The apartment is impeccable and the bedroom as inviting and comfortable as you could hope for. The location could not be more perfect. The apartment is quiet and tranquil but just blocks from shops, beach and restaurants. Matt and Toby are lovely and there if you need them or have any questions.
Matt & Toby's place was perfect for our group of three! Clean, cozy, and well-appointed.
My mom and sister shared the bed and said it was the most comfortable either of them had slept on in years. I wasn't looking particularly forward to sleeping on the foldout bed, but it was quite comfy for me; even with my trick back I had no problems at all.
The location was PERFECT for us -- close to everyone and everything we wanted to see. I'd never been to Carpinteria before, but it's such a charming town that I'm already thinking about when I might be able to visit again. When I do, I will definitely try to stay here again!
What a beautiful place in the heart of Carpinteria. Just a couple blocks to downtown and the beach, very walkable to everything we wanted to do in town. Easy and secure parking behind the house, very clean and quiet. We had a great stay at Matt and Toby's place.
The guest house was clean, bright, and cozy. It was centrally located to all that Carpinteria has to offer. Matt and Toby were helpful and responsive when needed. We would definitely stay again.
