Monterey house description

Welcome to "Sanctuary-in-the-Dunes"!

This oceanside 1-bedroom 1-bath condominium nestles against the sand on Del Monte beach in Monterey. From your living room and wraparound deck, imbibe a panorama of pelicans, families of otters, schools of dolphins and vast shoreline views stretching from John Steinbeck's Cannery Row to the Marina! Use your complementary binoculars to be entertained by nature's splendor.

You will be greeted upon your arrival with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

At night look to the southwest as the harbor dresses for evening in a million twinkling lights. Then experience the northeast, where your senses are soothed by ocean sounds and saltwater smells. Walking at dusk will be one of the most memorable experiences of your visit.

This single-story corner unit's closest neighbor is sand and surf. Follow the footpath just outside your door to the beach. You find everything you'll need in the condo: beach chairs, a picnic basket, coolers, umbrellas, blankets and towels. Grab one of the many books or magazines provided to read while basking in the sun.

When it is time to return to your vacation dwelling you'll see that your home-away-from-home is as special as its location. Decorated in crisp whites and ocean blues, this 900-square-foot condo epitomizes seashore elegance.

The open floor plan features a living area with a plush sofa and chair, a dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with full-sized appliances making cooking easy. The china and glassware are worthy of entertaining your most discriminating guests. Whimsical artwork dots the walls with inspired reminders to just “be”.

Other amenities include:
· Unlimited long distance telephone - 48 states only!
· WIFI
· Cable Modem/DSL
· Full Cable HD TV with a DVD library
· Luxurious linens and towels
· A garage to store bicycles or a small car
. Heated swimming pools and 2 hot tubs

A bottle of sparkling cider or wine and hors d'oeuvres greet you upon your arrival. Wind down at the Spa on the Plaza in Monterey. On us! And, if time permits, use your wine-tasting tickets to sample this region's most exquisite labels at Scheid Tasting lounge in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Still not sure what to do? In your “Welcome Book” we've provided you with our favorite recommendations and a lots of information on the Monterey Peninsula, certain to make your time here the best vacation you've ever had.

Sanctuary in the Dunes - Monterey is located in the Ocean Harbor House complex. Within 5 minutes by car, you're at Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf, great restaurants, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, downtown Monterey's movie theater, shops and nightlife that includes live music.

Travel Highway 1 to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove -- all only 10 minutes away. Highway 1 is also the route to Big Sur -- just 45 minutes away and one of the most scenic drives in the world.

If you're in the mood to walk, follow the nearby footpath nearby called the Regional Beach Trail that connects the entire Monterey Peninsula, over 11 miles from Pacific Grove to the Marina. If you ever had the slightest desire to take a 10-mile walk this would be the one.

When you need a place to get away from it all…yet be close to everything…Sanctuary in the Dunes - Monterey awaits you. RECENT CHANGE: HOA is prohibiting use of fireplaces in all units
