If you don’t have a million dollar home with a private beach, then this is the place for you. The online reviews and pics did not disappoint…as a matter of fact, we were very pleasantly surprised when we got to the house. I wasn’t sure what to expect but my whole family (8 people in all ranging from 3 yrs to 74 yrs old) just loved the house. The weather could not have been more perfect during our entire stay (4 days). And yes, we did see Dolphins…We were pretty excited!!! I had to contact the owner/Cynthia because the folks who rented prior to our stay didn’t put some things (like bed parts) back in its original place. Cynthia responded immediately and remedied the problem right away over the phone. She never made us feel like we were bothering her. Just a suggestion for future renters: make sure to read the rules that are listed for you, they are very detailed and helpful. Also, you can make any arrangements you want to the beds etc… to make your stay as comfy as possible, however, please be courteous and make sure to put things back where they belong so the next house guests aren’t trying to figure things out at 11 pm (after everybody is exhausted from a long day playing in the sun and sand). This is definitely a trip we are considering doing annually with our family!

This place is a home. It doesn’t feel like a rental, It has everything that you’ll need to enjoy your stay. The beach is not crowded and full of wildlife, in and out of the water. You can walk for miles. It is almost located in the middle of Monterey Bay, You can go south to Monterey or north to Santa Cruz. We liked BBQing on the deck and watching the set into the ocean after dinner, nothing could be better .When we come back to the coast, this is the place that we want.

Some friends and I spent three nights at this property in early June, and from the living spaces, to the breathtaking views, to the instant beach access, everything about it was spectacular! The whole place is bright, clean, modern, and exquisitely decorated. The wall-to-wall windows on the main floor offer expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, and the furnished deck was perfect for sipping tea in the morning or reading a book at sunset. As you can imagine with a property right in the middle of Monterey Bay, the scenery was unbelievable! I think we probably saw more dolphins than people, and we were lucky enough to spot a few sea lions and even a humpback whale breaching in the distance.
Inside, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day. All the furniture was comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the living space was everything you could ask for in a home away from home. Downstairs, through either bedroom, we had easy access to a second private deck and stairs right down to the beach (which lived up to its name with all of the sand dollars we picked up along the seemingly endless shoreline). For the full beach experience, the rental even came with beach chairs and a fire pit to roast marshmallows in the evening. All in all, it was a great few days of relaxation, made better by near-perfect location and accommodations. I would whole-heartedly recommend the property to anyone looking to get away from it all!
