Holiday Rental House
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...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.

About the neighbourhood
Carpinteria is located midway between Santa Barbara and Ventura, about 12 miles from each. The coast is a continuous string of beautiful beaches and bluffs, bordered by flower and produce farms at the base of the local mountains. Cycling and hiking routes are endless, all services and amenities are a short drive away, and MetroLink train service provides public transportation up and down the coast.
