Let the sound of the surf lull you into a relaxing sleep.

The condo is only Eighty-Five steps to the beach and total relaxation. Seaside Retreat is a classic 2 bedrooms 2 bath seaside condo located steps away from "the world's safest beach." The serene views from the balcony are of the pacific ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains. The location can't be beaten for the ultimate "park your car and leave it" beach destination. The access to the beach is a super easy walk from the condo, across the street, and through a small parking lot that leads right up to the sandy beach. For ultimate convenience, the beach has bathroom facilities and outdoor showers. The home has a sleeping arrangement for 4 people.  

The community has two pools and a hot tub, along with two poolside bathrooms with shower stalls. There is a gated parking area for one car. Downtown Carpinteria is an easy walk from the condo with almost all the restaurants and stores less than 1 mile away, and many of them are less than 1/2 mile away. 

Living Areas
Inside the condo living room, you have lovely wood-style flooring and a cozy living room with a sofa and two comfortable leather chairs that swivel. Find yourself unwinding from your day while enjoying a movie on the flat-screen TV. Or take a moment to slip out the sliding glass door to the balcony where you'll find two high deck chairs where you can sit and enjoy the mild onshore breeze and watch the colors of the sunset gleaming off the ocean waters while you sip on your favorite beverage. The gourmet chef in you will enjoy the gas bbq and dream about the food you're going to grill and share with your family & friends. 

Kitchen & Dining
The kitchen features full-size appliances, a blender, coffee maker, dishwasher, toaster, and microwave. The dining room table seats four. You will find everything you need to cook your meals and enjoy the time spent with your family while making lifelong memories. 

Bedrooms & Baths
Located on the second floor, you have a master bedroom with a King bed, flat-screen TV, and a walk-in closet. Open the window and be lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of the surf washing up onto the sandy beach. The adjacent guest bedroom has two twin beds. The upstairs bathroom is shared between the bedrooms and has two sinks and a remolded glass and tile walk-in shower. Downstairs you have a second bathroom with a walk-in shower. 

Outdoor Activities
The ocean and mountain views balcony has two chairs and a gas grill. The sand closet next to the condo's front door has four beach chairs, a beach umbrella (along with a small shovel to dig the hole for the umbrella), the world's safest beach is right across the street and an easy walk. Bring your cooler with you and spend the whole day. Carpinteria Beach features full bathroom facilities and outdoor showers. During the summer months, there is a pop-up Kayak and Surfboard rental shop right next door at Sandlyland and Ash. The Marsh Park next door to the condo is a 230-acre estuary with a 1.2-mile round trip hike on accessible graded trails. You will see butterflies, sea birds, and more. The best thing to do at the Marsh is to find the right place with a vantage point and just sit down and watch with a Camera or Binoculars. The Marsh is full of life, you just need to slow down to see it. If you enjoy hiking and nature, there is a trail that you can hike on that will take you all the way to the Carpinteria Bluffs. Another fun family activity is to go just down the street to the park where at Linden and Sandyland, there you can find picnic tables and BBQ grills for an afternoon with friends and family having a beach picnic. 

The Amtrak Station is a short walk away, and you can easily book round-trip tickets to take a day trip to Santa Barbara and get dropped off right downtown near Stearns Wharf. If you do this, make sure you check out the most massive magnolia tree in North America. It's located adjacent to the Santa Barbara Amtrak station. Other nearby activities are the Rincon Beach Park, which is a short 3.7-mile drive and is home to one of the best surfing spots in California. Rincon Beach Park is also a lovely beach to explore and find interesting pieces of driftwood. You can also watch the daredevils in their parachutes floating along in the air currents along the bluffs.

We definitely enjoyed our stay and will be back.

We did not need to interact w/CasaGo staff/personnel per se but I'm sure it would've been fantastic based on our experience!! Thank you!!

Fresh, new, comfortable and well-appointed. This is an excellent rental in a great location. Occupants must be able to navigate multiple stairs.

The condo was immaculate!

We loved the place! Property managers were very helpful. We will be back for sure!

We would definitely stay again.

We are a family of 4 with two young daughters, and enjoyed a terrific stay at Solimar Sands. The apartment was tastefully decorated as the pictures show, the kitchen was very well equipped, there were plenty of towels (though we could not bring them to the beach) and adequate toiletry provisions. We loved being 1 block from a very calm beach with nice sand. The kids had a blast there, and also especially enjoyed one of the two warm pools that was 3 feet deep all around. Spencer was helpful with my questions and personable to connect with. We would very much like to return again in the future.

Loved the unit! It was very clean, and the reservation staff was extremely easy to work with. Cannot recommend it enough!

Spencer was fantastic to work with - thanks!
