Bring trash bags, as they are not provided. Also it smells funky inside, also the tenant above-whenever they access any plumbing especially at night, there's a loud clanking noise for the entire time their plumbing is being used. Also, there was smoking going on all around us, and I was under the impression there was no smoking. Otherwise the outdoor shower was great, pool was great for kids, location is execellent, the laundromat was convenient, and my kids had a blast.

Loved Carpinteria and being so close to the beach. Great pool as well. It was a really quiet & restful and the unit was perfect for our family. Thanks to the hosts.

Michael, a resident who helps out the owners at times was very nice. He greeted us at the established time. The location of this place was exactly as described and the complex was quiet and peaceful. If you only care about location and friendly service this may be a good place for you to stay. However, if you have other required criteria I would read on. The cleaning fee was high so I expected a clean place to stay. I could tell from the pictures that the apartment was older and not updated with high end design. I was ok with this. What I wasn't ok with was the gross stained carpet in the bedrooms and the urine smell in the kitchen...gross. When you open the top utensil drawer you get a strong smell of urine and find some rusty items. We opted to only use the refrigerator and microwave. Fortunately I brought paper plates and plastic cutlery with us. In case wifi is important to you beware that there is a note posted on the wall saying, "Hopefully the wifi works." The router is in the apartment next door which might explain why the wifi only worked on one side of the apartment. There was a small basket on the counter with some various fast food napkins in it. However, if you want a roll of paper towels, a clean sponge, or an extra roll of toilet paper you will need to ask for it. We were grossed out and disappointed but made the best out of the situation. I asked Michael if he was the owner. He explained that he helps out when the owner is away. He then said he believed she was back and upstairs. I expressed to him about my feelings of the cleaning fee being high yet not receiving a clean place to stay. I gave details about the carpet being dirty and the urine smell and explained I would like to discuss the fee with the owner. He said that he would pass the message on. Shortly after our conversation I received a message from him explaining that the cleaning fee would be removed from the charges. I appreciated it and gladly accepted, but was surprised to have never been contacted by the owner herself. Carpinteria is a beautiful and quaint town. We scoped out some rentals we would love to try on a return trip.

I am embarrassed and so sorry about the issues you had. The person who helped you is our On-site Manager. He has been hired to make sure the apartment are in good condition when you arrive. I am sad to say, it sounds like he did not do his job. We have professional cleaners to call if there are problems, and they should have been called to resolve your issues. Also,we have multiple rental apartments, and you could have easily moved into another apartment you would have liked better. Saying the drawers smelled "like urine" is ridiculous. They may haste smelled, but certainly it was not urine in a kitchen drawer! I am sorry about your experience. The apt you rented. now hd a deep cleaning and put fresh paint on too. The carpets have been cleaned, such an easy thing to do. We actually stock extra items for the kitchen, and just asking the manager, he should have gone and replaced your items right away. It is also his job to make sure the apt is prepared for the incoming visitors. It appears, from what you have said, he did not do a good job of that. He has been sternly notified about this review. I do not live at the property, but i will go there next week and check that these issues were ALL met with the highest standards of cleanliness. I have discussed this with , and he has been instructed to do a better job.

The apartment was upstairs (which I prefer) and was cool and airy. Great location and close to the beach. It was quiet in the evenings which is always appreciated. Conveniently located to downtown Carpinteria and a great neighborhood to walk around. I would stay here again.

Hi Barbara, Thanks for your visit and telling us about the little details that we can easily take care of. We don't know until someone tells us, since we are almost sold out all the time, and quick turnovers don't allow time to inspect everything. You have been the only one to ask about the TV turn on instructions, so that never came up before, but I totally understand. Glad most items were fixed promptly by on site management, which is why they are there!

Adrea was very reasonable when we decided to cut out trip short and not stay the 5 nights we'd reserved.
