About the property

Condo, 2 Bdrm , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6) Lic. 0366

Relax on the balcony and enjoy one of the most beautiful view's on earth. It is such a beautiful spot that many weddings take place right across the street at Berwick Park. Enjoy taking a walk along the path along side the ocean. Monterey Aquarium and the Outlets are a five to ten-minute walk. (Holidays are 3 night minimum) I have a "Beach Gear" section in the gurst room closest. I have beach towels, boogie board, bucket & shovel, beach umbrella, beach bags, beach blankets. Enjoy the beach!

The Beach House is decorated by an Interior Designer and has a feeling of relaxation and comfort. It has a Nautical and Beach theme. It has wonderful thick Egyptian towels and high count sheets and linens. The electric towel warmer is great especially in the Winter months. The fireplace facing the oceanview is a perfect place to enjoy a book. It is a true place of relaxation.

It has a full kitchen with all of the latest equipment. If you cook, you can enjoy the best views in Monterey or if you go out, there are wonderful restaurants walking distance to Cannery Row.

Reviews

Relaxing in this wonderful condo. Great views and location!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Dec 26, 2013

We planned a Christmas trip to the Monterey bay area and this was this property was the highlight of our trip! The 2 bedroom, 2 full bath nicely equipped Condo is located near the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row shopping. Included in this condo, is 4 guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which gives this VRBO rental an added savings. The views are astonishing! The patio overlooks the ocean and a lush green narrow park that runs along the Ocean side with a hike and bike trail. We saw a wedding party taking pictures in the park and hear that many wedding happen at this park location! We rented bikes from about a block away and enjoyed riding along the coast from the 17 mile drive to the Aquarium and took post card perfect pictures along the way. While making coffee in the morning we looked out through the patio window and saw a couple whales swimming in the bay. The binoculars on the cabinet allow you to get up close! The entire condo complex is family owned and we were able to visit with some of Sally’s family. They are wonderful people and a pleasure to chat with. The kids also enjoyed board games in from the game cabinet and were able to post their favorite photos of the day using the high speed WIFI.

Excellent! 4.5/5 -

It was a good location, but disappointed in condition of unit , especially for the rate I was charge

  • 3 of 5

Sally was very kind & prompt in her communication.

We did love the location. This is a great unit, however there are things that could be improved in order to make it a great place to stay.

The cleaning wasn't done properly when we arrived. Sally did try to help us with the matter as soon as possible. The cleaning person was argumentative. So we declined help from him. Sally was kind and reimbursed a small portion of the cleaning fee for our troubles.

The place is full of many fake plants & flowers , which could be nice or pretty, but were full of dust. Too many to clean on a regular basis, I'm sure. My sister has a dust allergy. She had to go get allergy medicine the day we arrived due to the amount of dust in the unit. There are many things in need of repair. It wouldn't take much to get this nice unit into shape. It just lacks some care.

The cleaning needs to be better as well (as I stated above).

It is very cluttered. I understand the owner loves her 'things' but as a renter, I would prefer a cleaner, less cluttered space for

my vacation.

I feel the description is a tad misleading when advertising the luxurious towels & linens. I appreciate it is a rental, but the description is outdated. There is one couch that is dust covered and smells like dust/dirt. We covered both sofas with sheets so we could sit on them.

The windows or shades are either broken or in disrepair. The shower rod in one bathroom was rusted and we could not open or close curtain! The shower curtain in master was moldy. There was mold on the hand soap pump in bathrooom. The kitchen drawers needed much cleaning. The refrigerator was moldy. There were drawers in the bedroom that would fall out when opened. There were drawer handles that were broken so we couldn't use the chest. There were several adirondack chairs that were so filthy we didn't want to take the time to clean them so we could sit in them. Again... all easy fixes... just needs care!

Again, the location is great. The unit has GREAT potential, but needs updating, clearing out, updating, cleaning & repairs. I understand if one wants to live in the unit as is, but when asking others to pay $ for their vacation stay... it needs work. I would not stay here again in current condition.

I would encourage the owner to clean, repair & declutter. It is a great location & unit.

Owner's Response: These people as soon as they entered my unit they were complaining, she asked me has it been cleaned ? I asked her , are the beds made and she said yes , I said it has been cleaned. My Cleaner is a professional cleaner he's been cleaning my place for about 10 years and he does a good job he also does hotels him and his wife work together. They wanted to have it cleaned more so I I called my Cleaner and he talked to her and he got a different list of things that were different from my list of things. I just feel like they wanted to complain and complain and complain. The refrigerator is not moldy that is from the hard water. I had just replaced both shower curtains right before these people came she said that Rod was moldy but again it is the hard water he washes everything with Clorox. She got in an argument with the cleaner and so she called me and said that they will clean it themselves. I told her you were on vacation why don't you just let the cleaner do it but no, they wanted to do it. I reimbursed her for a portion of the cleaning fee. I just purchased a brand new sofa she talks about the sofa sis being dusty the other sofa is in the sun and I have a throw over the back of it. I do not see dust on the plants when I go there. I've said in the past if people feel my place is too cluttered, take a picture get those items and put them in a drawer and before you leave put them back where they were. It is not that cluttered I took a lot of things out this last summer when I stay there in August. I am glad these people will not be staying again because I will not have them. Apparently their idea of a vacation is to complain constantly. They could've been out having a good time and have my cleaner do whatever she thought wasn't done but they chose to stay home on their vacation and clean the place? Why? After they left , my Cleaner reports to me after people leave , my Cleaner said they used almost every towel and every sheet and it took him four loads of wash. I state on the washer, a note , please do not have more than two loads of wash to do. Disappointed with this review , I take every review to Heart and it bothers me and upsets me to get such a review when I try to make every stay a great stay. Sally

The view was spectacular and so is the location. The shower curtains in both bathrooms were moldy and there was a lot of clutter. The kitchen was a nice size and having the patio was wonderful

Owner's Response: I was very sad to get just a three star rating because I usually get five stars. I have a professional cleaner and they do everything that professional cleaners do. If the shower curtains are what they are talking about, it is the HARD water that causes this. I have the same problem with the water in Napa. My cleaner has replaced both shower curtain liners. He does this about every four months. As far as what they call clutter, I love my nautical shells and accessories. I had taken some things out before these guests came but maybe some people don't like sea shells. I happen to love shells. If a guest doesn't like accessories they can take a picture first then stash them in a drawer and before they leave look at the picture you took and put them back. Thanks, Sally

Amazing views. Perfect location. Great choice!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay. The house is perfectly located and very well equipped and maintained. the view from the balcony is out of this world. We are a family of 5 and it was just perfect for us. If I had one constructive comment to make is that It would benefit from being a little bit more impersonal. Remove personal pictures and the like. Would go back in a heart beat.

Family holiday close to Cannery Row and Downtown, the acquarium was fantastic so the passes were handy. Close to activities like bike riding so it was an enjoyable break on our way from Los Angeles to San Francisco.
