“Get yourself to the Beach”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Dorrance is a charming bungalow approimately 2 blocks from Carpinteria State Beach. It has a fully equiped Kitchen, washer, dryer and the beds were very comfortable. There are convienences packed into the house to make your stay more pleasant. This was ideal for our family vacation with small children. The house is located in an area with many rentals. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. There is a small fenced yard.

“Very cute place a few blocks from the beach”

This unit is part of a triplex on Dorrance St. a quick walk to the beach. 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. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has pretty much everything you need. There is even a washer dryer in the kitchen. The condo is located in a quite neighborhood though the train does run right by it and it startled me once or twice, but really it was kind of charming.

“Comfy, Cute & Reasonable”
Reviewed 14 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We've been here for two weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach cottage. It's clean, well-equipped and very comfortable. Phil and Kathy have been very attentive and delightful to deal with. The cottage reflects their attention to detail. We've enjoyed preparing meals in the well-stocked kitchen, the beds are very comfortable, and having a washer and dryer has been so convenient. Our two small dogs have enjoyed our daily walks to the beach which is only two blocks away. Walking to the many restaurants and shops has been fun. We're definitely looking forward to our next stay hopefully in the fall.
