"Our first reaction when we walked through the door was, "Look at that view!" it was absolutely breathtaking. The main living area was spacious and perfect for our group and we enjoyed our stay.
However, there are a few things I feel should be noted for future travelers to be aware of when they are making their choice about where to stay and what to bring.
Kitchen : Although there are plenty of plates, cups, pots & pans there wasn't a full set of silverware. We found this very frustrating and ended up buying some to use the week we stayed. Only 1 1/2c. measuring cup...Also the kitchen knives were very dull and unsafe. Our second to last day we found a brand new set in the closet by the half bath....why weren't they put out in the first place?
Cleaning Supplies: There wasn't a dustpan! So weird. We ended up making one out of a paper plate. I would think that a homeowner would encourage renters to clean up after themselves by providing the proper tools. Also, There wasn't a vacuum. When I called the property management about both of these issues they did bring over a vacuum the next day but the vacuum was broken so really no help.
No trash bags provided, we bought our own. We've rented many beach houses over the past 15 years. This was a first for us.
Linens : If you're staying with a group over 5 bring your own washcloth. Not enough provided.
Safety: The bed frame in the master bedroom was made to have a footboard attached to it. There is no footboard and so the metal frame sticks out and up quite a few inches from the mattress it is very sharp and was hidden behind the bedspread. My 81 year old mother gashed her leg on it. The property management again didn't seem to think it was a big deal. It really is a safety issue so beware!
Mold on the blinds and in the bathroom...
Grill was very dirty and a fire hazard...we cleaned it as best we could.
Listing photos and real life inconsistencies : No table on the deck but there are some nice chairs. No TV in Master Bedroom. Bunk beds in 3rd bedroom have been separated to make two separate beds which makes the room very crowded.
General Comfort : There are no dressers in any of the bedrooms and only a couple of hangers in each closet. Again, we had to provide our own which was a first for us.
Overall this is a nice home that could be great with a few more homey touches and a few things that we've come to expect as a given when renting vacation homes."

"As most of you know, I don't do reviews, but this place deserves to be the rare exception.
We needed a short getaway from the humdrum of living in the mountains and I needed to breathe salt air again, if only for a couple of days.
This place fit all our requirements and then some. We brought two of our close friends with us and they were as delighted in the unit as we were. We all agreed this was one of the nicest, best furnished units we had ever seen. The kitchen was complete, right down to a crock pot, lets see your 4 star hotels top that. Clean, comfortable, beautiful are some of the terms that come to mind when I think of Ocean Mist.
The only thing I missed was the food at the wharf wasn't up to Monterey's standards, that and a shortage of parking spaces."

"This was wonderful for a quick trip to the coast! You can't beat the location, the hot tub was great and the beach side fire pit got use with our crew. We roasted smore's and stayed up talking. What a great time! Unit is dated, but clean, affordable and the owner has thought of everything! Very thoughtfully appointed. Thank you!"
