Property description

Marisol is a beautiful, modern, custom home with 3 bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms. Master bedroom (king bed) on top floor with 2 bedrooms (queen and 2 fulls) on ground floor. Trundle in downstairs living room. Wake in the master suite to views of the valley all the way to the ocean. Jacuzzi bathtub awaits you after a day of exploring the coast. Private gated community with 3 exclusive homes. Situated as a hill top retreat with patio, deck and fountain. Pristine views of ocean and nature preserve. Sit on your private perch overlooking the Elkhorn Slough and the Monterey Bay sipping a glass of local wine. Although secluded, this home is not remote. In 10 minutes drive you have everything - including Starbucks! You just won't see any neighboring homes as the house sits on 5 acres on the ridge top. Laguna Seca and Monterey only 25 miles away. Santa Cruz is 17 miles away. Summer fog makes this get-away best for those who enjoy cool summer days. Santa Cruz beaches just a short drive away when you want the heat. 2 fireplaces are great for winter lounging. Watch the remarkable sunset over the Pacific any time of the year. This house comes with all the amenities - just bring yourself and be prepared to relax. We even leave you detergent for the washer & dryer.

Enjoy this lovely vacation home and leave rejuvenated. Tell us if you prefer, red wine, white wine, beer or a Prosecco for your arrival. You should get in the right mood as soon as you step in the door! We know you will enjoy your time here as much as we do.
