About this listing
Located Just 15 miles south of beautiful Santa Barbara, nestled in a quiet neighborhood and surrounded by flowering gardens, and ranches is the coastal town of Carpinteria.
The private guest room and bath is conveniently located on one side of this relaxing, peaceful home. The guest room offers a very cozy queen-size bed, down comforter and pillows for a good nights sleep. The private, full bath is attached to the room and has a very large shower, fresh towels, hair dryer, complimentary: soap, shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste.
There is access to a gourmet kitchen for preparing meals there is complimentary coffee and tea, laundry, dinning room, living room with a flat screen TV/ HD DVD player. Free WiFi though out the house and tranquil sun-room with views of the garden and the Los Padres National Forest as a backdrop. There is also several outdoor spaces to enjoy a book in the shade on the patio, take in the sun or relax in the hot tub. There is easy, accessible street parking available right in front of the house. I also share my home with a well behaved, adorable dog Lucky who will not invade your space.
I have called Carpinteria and Santa Barbara my home for my whole life. I have hosted International students from Holland, Japan and Switzerland. I have a Wealth of Knowledge which I would love to share with you and help make your trip a wonderful experience.
I will pick up or drop off at the Carpinteria Amtrak Train Station no charge. There are bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, and a cooler for you to use during your stay.
The house is located 1 mile from the Carpinteria State Beach and charming downtown Carpinteria with many shops, cafes, ice-creamery, local brewery, wine bar, and great little places to eat. There is also a shuttle which picks up in the neighborhood and will take you all the way to the beach. Carpinteria has little gems like the Bluffs Nature Preserve, and the Salt Marsh wetlands both are magical places to take and evening stroll.
Easy accesses north to Santa Barbara, Summerland, Santa Ynez and Montecito and south to Ojai.
I welcome you to my home. The kitchen, and sunroom are my favorite. There are 2 patios and a hot tub to help you relax and enjoy your stay.
Interaction with Guests
This is my primary residence and I live in my home. Since joining Airbnb 4 years ago, they have helped me share it with many wonderful guests. I am available to help you with suggestions of things to do during your stay. As well as if problems arise.
The small town feel starts at El Carro park where the shuttle picks up one block from the house to down town Carpinteria and the beach. Take backpack chairs and boogie boards and head to the beach. There you can rent kayaks & surf boards. Walking up Linden there are many wonderful restaurants and shops. Take the bikes and ride the 4 mile round trip and see the "bluffs" and Seal rookery.
There are bikes for your use. The neighborhood trolley can be picked up 1 block from the house. It goes around town for fifty cents.
