Year Purchased: 2013
About: I am a retired teacher. My husband is a semi-retired general contractor.
Why Monterey: I was raised in Wisconsin. My Junior & Senior year of college I went to Florida for Easter Break. I fell in love with the ocean and decided that I would only interview with school districts that were close to the ocean. I got a job in Oxnard, Ca.
In 1976 my husband and I moved to Sacramento for his employment. We both missed the ocean and often talked about moving to the coast after the children were raised. None of our children moved away so we decided to stay put and get a vacation condo on the ocean.
From 1995 - 2010 we began our search to see what place we liked best. We rented condos and houses for our summer vacations. We liked Ocean Harbor at 1 Surf Way the best as it was the closest to the ocean and we got to stay a whole month which was very relaxing. No rushing each day to make sure we saw everything. The pricing was only about a third more than the cost of renting for a week at other locations. We rented four times from Monterey Rentals before making the leap to being an owner.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We are in the first level of the three levels that are at Ocean Harbor which means great views and Ocean sounds. Ocean views from the living room and deck. We felt very lucky to get a unit in the first level. The bedrooms overlook the pool so you can keep an eye on your kids from the bedroom. Full size washer/dryer.
