STELLA ANDERSON purchased this house in 2002

Why STELLA ANDERSON chose Carpinteria

This is just a great family house in town yet it is so close the the bright lights of Santa Barbara (11ml) and of course Los Angeles (80 mile)

Santa Barbara is a world class destination resort with Ocean and Mountains and a superb cultural center with highly rated Film Festivals as well

What makes this house unique

Ocean & Mountians - cultural and sporting events - Film Festivals - University/study ops -

Wonderful weather all year round.

The house has a serenity and a full size iron zebra to welcome you - a large well maintained private garden - lots of off street parking - while offering all the central amenities of Carpinteria.

relaxing beach town retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this cottage walking distance from Carpenteria State Beach and so many other things over our daughter's graduation from UCSB weekend. You can walk to the beach, Channel Islands Brewery, Linden St., the main street with beachy shops and restaurants, great coffee at the Luckty Llama, a charming quilt store, the historical museum, and so much more. Something for everyone, in a very relaxed, laid back atmosphere. Part of the time we stayed, other family members camped at the state park, and we could walk or bike back and forth. There were dolphins and seals off the coast and the weather was beautiful. The house is very comfortable and airy, and Stella provided everything from baby oil to remove the tar from our feet, to toiletries if you forgot something, and beach towels. We really enjoyed bringing our bicycles and being able to ride around the darling little town. The front porch and barbeque in the yard were great for family get-togethers. Carpenteria has a more relaxed vibe than Santa Barbara, but is only a 10 minute drive from State Street, etc. (if there is no traffic). It is about 25 minutes from UCSB, although we did have one friday evening drive that took a lot longer because of weekend traffic. The master bedroom is exceptionally comfortable, the other bedroom with a full bath is also very comfortable. The third bedroom is a bit small, and in a frequently walked-through location. The front porch is a gem. Would definitely stay here again!!

Good set up

  • 4 of 5

This house worked well for us. Roomy master BR with kid beds. Well supplied kitchen and toys. At end of quiet street. WiFi and garbage pick up we’re a hassle, but overall worked well. Information book needs updating. Incorrect information.

Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This year was our third visit to Carpinteria and we've stayed in different places each time. We really liked the proximity of this house to everything - it was easy to walk to the beach, the park, and the restaurants on Linden Ave. The layout of the house was really nice for giving our kids their own spaces to hang out and for sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed. Stella was very nice and accommodating. We would definitely come back to this house; it was a great fit for our family.
