The space

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 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.

This was our first Airbnb experience and we couldn’t have asked for a better host. Margaret went above and beyond to ensure our stay was truly amazing. Her home is truly a mini oasis with two spectacular patios, a fabulous kitchen, a Jacuzzi, hummingbirds and turtles’ too. Even with the ocean only a mile away we could have comfortably stayed at her home without leaving or feeling as though we had missed out on seeing Carpinteria. Our room was nice and quiet with a private bathroom attached for additional privacy. The amenities provided during our stay were great, as well. We enjoyed wonderful conversation with Margaret and Phillip. She did everything possible to make sure our stay was a perfect experience. Margaret’s home is pleasant and inviting and it will be difficult to find another host and home that will exceed the high bar set by her. Thanks, to Margaret our stay was certainly marvelous. We’re already planning and looking forward to our next opportunity to stay with her. To put it simply, she is the best.

Margaret is the best. The place is great. It's very relaxing to sit in the sun with the hummingbirds and tortoises.

We've stayed with Margaret each year for several years now. She is the best host that you can imagine. She takes care of everything and we always feel right at home in her place.

We stay at Margaret's place every year and love it. She is a wonderful hostess and always seems to think of everything that you might want or need. She is great at communicating and an all around lovely person.

This was my second stay at Margaret 's place and it was incredible. She really is a Super host and more. My son and grandson also enjoyed their stay-especially the outside area and jacuzzi. Margaret is kind and so helpful that we will be sure to come back. Best Mothers Day ever.

Margaret is the best. She always brings oranges and avocados and leaves friendly notes. I don't use much of the amenities (porch, hot-tub), but what I use is great.

Such a great place to stay. The hot tub helped after two days of playing sand volleyball. Coffee is started each morning and Margaret even made fresh banana bread. Her place is over the top.

I am a California Native. I love gardening, cooking, entertaining and travel. I spend my free time taking on walks to the bluffs near my house and meeting friends for dinner and game night.
