About the owner: John & I have been married for 20 years and we use our home to escape the everyday business world and relax. We love to come here and enjoy the local activities as well as to rest, read a book, take walks on the beach, or drive to Carmel Valley and visit with friends.
Why the Owner Chose Rio del Mar: When young, our family used to vacation in Rio Del Mar area. The sand and surf was a wonderful getaway from the San Joaquin Valley hot sun.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Spanish architecture that goes with the Monterey Area made us feel part of history with the California Spanish Culture. The view made us feel tranquil but we also like the privacy of being 3 blocks from the beach. The ocean waves and the clean air gets us away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
