La Conchita is a get away from it all destination. There are no commercial businesses here. Groceries, restaurants & other facilities can be found 3 miles north of LC in Carpinteria . Our beautiful beach is reached easily by walking to the bottom of our block. There is a large breezy passageway under the highway that leads directly to the beach. La Conchita is right near the famous Rincon surfing beach and the harbor seal viewing area of the Carpinteria bluffs, the home is located 15 miles south of Santa Barbara and 15 miles North of Ventura CA. Just 40 minutes north of Malibu and about an hour and half to LA. There is so much to see and do in Carpinteria ( 3 miles away), Santa Barbara and Ventura you will not even want to think about LA and the traffic! La Conchita boasts a lush unique micro climate like Hawaii. It is a botanical wonderland and over the Santa Ynez Mountains is Lake Casitas and the beautiful town of Ojai, not to be missed! This will be a California dream vacation to be remembered and you will be back. Highway 101 is undergoing some major construction at this time, so guests may anticipate a few detours along the way.
A car is absolutely necessary in this part of CA. Navigation is pretty easy. Everything is oriented on highway 101 or PCH the old Pacific Coast Highway where the highway still runs pretty close to the ocean. In Santa Barbara & our little beach town of Carpinteria just 3 miles North over the Santa Barbara County line there are trolleys that will take you around town. Parking is a joy in Ventura, Santa Barbara , Carpinteria & Ojai. Public Parking is either free for a certain amount of time downtown and then at a nominal cost per hour or totally free in Ventura, Ojai & Carp. That's why the downtown areas are lively after dark and thriving!
