The perfect beach getaway in the heart of Monterey Bay!

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!

Perfect Family Vacation – Stunning Views

This beach condo was perfect for our family’s Spring Break vacation. The condo is exactly as pictured on the site and had everything we needed. We cooked almost every meal during our stay and the kitchen was very well equipped. In fact, based on other rentals we have rented over the years, I would say this kitchen was better equipped than any we have rented in the past. If you like to cook on vacation, this kitchen will come in very handy. The views from both decks are spectacular and the easy access to beach was perfect for our teenage boys. Nothing like a fire pit and smors at night to complete a family vacation! As for the adults, we enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine on the deck, watching dolphins, pelicans and beautiful sunsets. The outdoor patio furniture was in great shape and very comfortable. All beds were comfortable as well and the use of 3 full baths came in very handy. The home was spotless and very clean. One of the best features is that you can hear the ocean all day and all night from every room in the condo.

Although some reviews state that this property is farther form Santa Cruz, we found it convenient. We had easy access to restaurants in nearby Watsonville, Aptos and Santa Cruz and could get to our favorite supermarket in Aptos in 7 mins or less. I also drove our boys into Santa Cruz to surf and could get to the famous Pleasure Point surf spot in less than 20 mins.

Owner was so easy to work with prior to the trip and very responsive during our stay when we had questions. We strongly recommend this property and we will rent again.

Eight women on a getaway weekend! Everything about this house was fantastic! It is well stocked with absolutely everything anyone could possibly need (and then some) for a rental. The owner takes pride in providing a quality stay for guests, so all the bedrooms and bathrooms are completely stocked with linens and towels. The kitchen has an abundance of dinnerware/silverware/cookware. Cynthia is very professional and quick to respond to questions. We will definitely go back.

Fantastic Beach front property

It is so difficult to find a true “on the beach” experience in California. This beautiful property, which is literally on the beach, exceeded our expectations. Located at beautiful Manresa Beach, this well appointed and updated three level gem gave us multiple morning and sunset views. Typically, I am not inclined to review a rental property but this clean, well lit, comfortable gem has inspired me to share my experience. It is better than advertised. We saw whales spouting off shore on day one, and a sea lion pup came ashore to visit day two. The owner left detailed instructions to cover all possible scenarios, not that we needed to call. Coffee on the deck in the morning, cocktails while watching the sun set in the evening. Great fun on the beach in between. I can’t wait to go back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
