Beautiful, recently updated 1 Bedrm/1 Bath apartment that is part of a larger home, with a private staircase entrance. This lovely retreat is peaceful and relaxed, with wood floors, lots of light and comfortable touches throughout. Close to beach!
Sleeps 4-5. Queen bedroom with ample space and lighting, queen comfortable sleeper bed in sofa. Luxury linens and towels provided. If there is a 5th guest (best suited for a child or teen), we will provide a cot with bedding.
The kitchen is well-stocked for all of your food preparation needs. There is a large microwave, large toaster oven, and a full-size fridge. It features a convenient drawer-style dishwasher. Also for cooking there is an outdoor grill, a hot plate and plug-in griddle for pancakes and the like. The kitchen has ample counter space and a deep sink, and overhead there is a skylight.
The bathroom has ornate tilework, a glass bowl sink and fun decorative touches. The stacked washer/dryer is available for your use.
Relax on the balcony, and enjoy the view of downtown Carpinteria, complete with many palm trees.
Parking is available for one car behind the apartment, and there is plenty of street parking for any other vehicles.
RECOMMENDATIONS from past guests~
"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!"

I could not be happier with our stay! The apartment felt much larger than it looked in the pictures, and easily accommodated our group of 5. Everything was new and clean. Matt and Toby are wonderful hosts, and respond quickly to inquiries. Given the opportunity to do it over again, I would not hesitate to return. Thank you Matt and Toby!
My roommates from college and I had been looking for a place where we could meet up since we graduated, and Matt and Toby's was perfect! Their directions in terms of finding it were clear and made it easy to find. It was clean and cozy, and the perfect amount of space for 5 girls (which isn't always easy). We absolutely loved it! Shops and restaurants were walking distance, and the beach is super close too. We are so appreciative for Matt and Toby letting us stay! I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a place to stay in the small beach town!
Just spent three days at this charming apartment. Could not be more conveniently located. Grocery store and my favorite cafe Crushcakes right around the corner. Still very quiet and restful in the apartment. Very nice bathroom and lovely comfortable bed.
This is a charming, beach apartment about a ten minute walk to the beach and just a block off the Main Street, Linden. The place seems newly remodeled and was very clean. It isn't a big place, but just right for a family of three or two couples who will be out and at the beach all day anyways. It was also very quiet and a lot of details were thought through like a light stairway for when you get back in the evening, note where to rent DVDs and tar removal oil if you happen to get some on your feet.
Our visit to Carpinteria was a most enjoyable experience. Matt and Toby's suite is charming, spotless and well equipped - only a short walk to beach and shopping/restaurants. We hope to return to Carpinteria and would stay here again if available.
We really enjoyed staying in Downtown Charmer.
Above all our hosts were superb - they provided toys for our toddlers (which was super). Unfortunately the weather wasn't great on the weekend so Matt and Toby suggested what we could see and do in the area otherwise.
We highly recommend this place to others -- very cosy, friendly and full of heart. Thank you!
The place was great--exceeded our expectations! Awesome locale: walking distance to the beach and downtown restaurants.
