Historic Home Carpinteria Vacation Rental The Castro House-1

Originally built in 1902 by a banker W.D. Isendburg. Simeon F. Shepard purchased the house for his family, leaving it to his daughter Isabel Shepard. Isabel married Fran Castro and since the inheritence of the house and their union, it has been known as The Castro House.

The Castro House originally was set on the corner of Maple Ave and Carpinteria Ave, were the 76 Gas Station now stands. It was moved to where it stands now (one lot south over) in 1949.

We had a fabulous stay! The host was very welcoming and accommodating, and the home was exactly what our family needed. There was so much to walk to (beach, park, coffee shops, restaurants), and the Castro House was the perfect spot to return to after all our outings. Thank you!
