  • A Gem

    "Situated on a quiet, narrow lane, the Pierpont Beach house is beautifully designed and superbly constructed. It's about eight houses down the street to the beach (which, due to the No Parking rules is virtually deserted). The house is as clean as a whistle and indeed smells like a new house. There are two master suites, each with its own bath and two other bedrooms, one next to a half bath and the other (downstairs) bedroom has its own smaller bathroom. Both master suites feature luxurious bathrooms. The upper story bedroom has a whirlpool bath, double sinks, a glassed-in shower stall and a walk-in closet. The great room features a beautiful kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a dining table and a TV viewing area. There's a veranda with a beach view just off the great room. There's a also a large rooftop deck with ocean views. The bed linens are top-notch and the sheets were very nice. We went with our neighbors and our collection of five elementary school kids. The house easily accommodated all 9 of us comfortably. The kids had a great time riding their bikes along the beach bike path and rolling down the dunes. The managers were very helpful. A great place to stay."

    "The house was in a great location, near the restaurants, stores and in walking distance to the beach. The home was very clean and well kept. My family and I felt right at home. It was everything we couldve hoped for and more. The owners have really done a fantastic job with this home. We will definitely be back here to stay."

  • Fantastic Pool; Great Family Get-Away

    "We were 3 couples who stayed here for 6 nights. First things first, the pictures do not do this place justice. The kitchen is updated, light and bright, the living room/dining room is a great open concept and each bedroom is peaceful and private. But the star here is the pool. This is, by far, the largest pool we've seen in a home. The pool and the pool surrounding were perfect for relaxing, reading a book and enjoying some R&R. The home is beautiful. The bedrooms were great. Very large, very private. Each (except the bunk bed room) had a door onto the large, wrap-around deck. The bathrooms were perfect (2 full and one 1/2 bath). In the photos, the kitchen appears dark and out dated, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it to a a large, updated kitchen. Perfect for cooking and chatting with those in the living room/dining room. We loved the kitchen table. It's a large wooden table. It speaks of family dinners. The location is great, however, it is up a VERY STEEP and WINDING road. Best to arrive during the day. The only downside is the wifi. They have wifi, but it doesn't work well (which I did not mind). If you absolutely need it, you might want to inquire first about how well it is working. I would recommend this house to anyone. I have a few minor suggestions for the owners (non of which should deter you from renting this house!): 1. New bed linens. The bed skirt in the master had holes in it and the bed spreads in the twin bedroom had holes in it. 2. New mattresses for the twin bedrooms. 3. New couches. The living room is so perfect for relaxing, chatting, playing a game, however, the couches were well worn. They had holes in them, stuffing coming out, the padding in the cushions were gone. PLEASE new couches. 4. A deep clean. The property is clean, don't get me wrong, however, I think their cleaning crew needs to put a bit more elbow grease in. We lifted up a couch and were shocked at how much dust and stuff was under it. It wasn't from just a weeks worth, this was months worth building up. 5. New area rugs. We dropped a binky on a rug and picked it up and it was covered in hair and crumbs. Again, the cleaning crew needs to work a bit harder."

  • Perfect weekend getaway

    "We loved this house. We loved how accommodating they were to our dogs. The fenced in yard was perfect for them. We couldn't keep Winston out of the creek. He also was a little unsure of the horse. He kept a close eye on him. We loved feeding the beautiful horse. The property is huge and private. The house was very comfortable. The comfy robes and slippers were a nice touch. We really had no complaints. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back!"

Central Coast Travel Tips

The Central Coast of California spans for hundreds of miles between Monterey Bay and Point Mugu, from just northwest of Los Angeles County and south of San Francisco and San Mateo counties.

Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo is credited with discovering the Central Coast following his landing in Santa Barbara County in 1542 after sailing from the south. America's first motel is located in San Louis Obispo and you can catch a glimpse of the rugged California shore when you travel through the coastal communities of Big Sur, Morro Bay and San Simeon.

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz is home to Natural Bridges State Beach, redwood forests and a moderate climate. The city was settled in 1791 and chartered in 1866 after the Mexican-American War when California became a state. An earthquake destroyed much of the city's downtown buildings in 1989. Since reconstruction, downtown Santa Cruz has become a bustling center for shopping, dining and attractions.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a popular maritime destination for visitors. The boardwalk's Neptune Kingdom features mini golf, an arcade, pool tables and laser tag. There are boardwalk rides for everyone in the family including the Giant Dipper and Bulgy the Whale - in fact, more than 60 million people have gone on the Giant Dipper roller coaster that opened in 1924. Another favorite attraction on the boardwalk is the 1911 Looff Carousel. This National Historic Landmark is a hand-carved merry-go-round that boasts a Ruth and Sohn band organ as well as a Wurlitzer 146.

Natural Bridges State Beach is famous for its natural bridge as well as ideal conditions for migratory whale, otter and seal watching. When you visit the beach you'll see sea stars, crabs and other ocean life during low tide. Also in the park is a large area of wildflowers that blossom in the spring, and Moore Creek creates freshwater wetlands and a salt marsh. Natural Bridges State Beach is also home to the Monarch Butterfly Natural Preserve - during the winter months, up to 100,000 monarchs find refuge here.

Pacific Grove

Pacific Grove can be found between Point Pinos and Monterey. It's often referred to as one of America's last hometowns and known for its Victorian homes. There's a massive annual migration of monarch butterflies that makes its way through the city each year.

Asilomar State Beach is located on the Monterey Peninsula. Visitors to the beach can access coastal trails and the nearby Asilomar Dunes Natural Preserve. Asilomar State Beach is a one-mile strip of sandy shores and rocky coves with a ¾-mile walking trail. All marine animals and features at the beach are protected. There's a boardwalk at the beach that houses a number of buildings and halls, including a cafe for you to enjoy a cup of coffee and a gift shop to pick up a book to sit by the water and read.

[http://www.pointpinoslighthouse.org/ The Point Pinos Lighthouse] was lit in 1855 and remains a Coast Guard navigational aid today, making it the oldest active lighthouse in the state. The first lighthouse keep at Point Pinos was Charles Layton and after he died in 1855, Charlotte Layton became the first female lighthouse keeper on the West Coast. When you visit Point Pinos Lighthouse you can take a tour of the historic site and learn more about what is was like for lighthouse keepers who were in charge of ensuring the light was lit as well as the lighthouse's progression through history.

Carmel-by-the-Sea

Carmel-by-the-Sea is a top destination in the U.S. and nestled above a white-sand beach. Everything in the city is within walking distance so you won't have any trouble navigating the streets to find hundreds of shops, restaurants, wine tastings and art galleries.

[http://aquariumofthebay.org The Monterey Bay Aquarium] sees nearly 2 million visitors each year. There are more than 600 species of animals on display, and thanks to its location near the water, the aquarium can enjoy a high circulation of fresh ocean water. There's a massive tank for viewing California coastal marine life which is also the first in the world to grow live California giant kelp. Sea life at the aquarium includes stingrays, jellyfish, sea otters as well as bluefin and yellowfin tuna. The penguins in the Splash Zone exhibit are a favorite among families visiting the aquarium and the zone houses African Black-Footed penguins.

Point Lobos State Reserve features Cypress forest, hidden coves, beaches and overlooks where you can catch a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean. At Point Lobos you'll find one of the richest underwater habitats in the world, making it a favorite spot among divers. However, seals, sea lions and sea otters can be found swimming through the waters here, too. Scuba and free diving are popular activities among visitors to the reserve. Other favorite things to do at Point Lobos include sightseeing, photography and jogging. There are unique geological formations and endangered archeological sites that you won't see anywhere else.
