3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Carpinteria, California
We're told by locals that our our beach house used to be the Carpinteria train station, but now the RR stands for Rest and Relaxation. With three bedrooms, two full baths, plus a high-ceilinged living room and dining room in over 1200 square feet of single story coastal cottage, this is a vacation spot that you and your family will revisit year after year. Located on Dorrance Way, a short two block walk will take you to the beach, the Salt Marsh, the State Park, and the downtown area with all of its shops and restaurants. The house is outfitted from top to bottom, with a fully equipped kitchen including all cooking needs, place settings, and towels and linens. Off-street parking for two cars is provided, and the fenced front yard and porch provide a perfect setting for enjoying lazy beach days and evenings. We have 2 other units on t... Read more

It is an older unit and a few aspects of it are a little funky, like old carpeting in the bedrooms but it is clean, and appealing.
