About the property

Beachfront Studio, 1 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 2

Oceanfront living. Modern Comfort. Newly Remodeled.

We look forward to welcoming you at our Beach Studio at 408 Oceanview Drive. We'd love to share our peaceful getaway with you. We do take great pride in meticulously maintaining our beach studio and trust that you will find everything for a memorable and perfect stay.

Our beach studio offers modern, luxurious comfort in a spacious and contemporary setting. It was completely remodeled in the Winter of 2017. Our studio sleeps up to 2 guests. It features a queen size bed, a separate bathroom with shower and a wetbar with fridge, sink, microwave and coffee maker. For your comfort and convenience, linens and towels are provided at no extra cost. Complementary WiFi and Cable TV.

The beach is your backyard at this on-the-sand Monterey Bay studio with 180 degree ocean, beach and breathtaking sunset views. Walk down the stairs to white sandy beaches.

Our beach studio is part of a small and private townhouse complex in a very quiet and peaceful community at La Selva Beach. Enjoy the sound of the surf as you fall asleep at night or the peace of a walk on the long stretch of unspoiled beach. Ideally located close to restaurants and activity in Aptos (about 5 minutes) or Santa Cruz (about 15 minutes) or the history and shopping of Monterey (about 30 minutes).

Our beach studio is accessible via the gated community stair case (~ 30 steps; see pictures). Our beach studio does not have street level access and is not wheelchair accessible.

We stayed here for a full week for our 25th Anniversary. We had a wonderful time. The property was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Beach just a few steps away. Stairs down to the unit are a bit steep but we managed. The only negatives would be as mentioned in other reviews, the fridge is very small and there isn't any comfortable seating other than the bed and some hard back chairs. Otherwise, it was an amazing week. We would definitely book again and recommend to our family and friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Rhea, I'm delighted to read that you had a wonderful time at our studio and enjoyed the beach setting. Thank you for being such great guests and for your thoughtful feedback. I wanted to let you know that to make the studio even more comfortable for our guests, we've added a loveseat to the unit (you can see a picture in the listing). We hope we'll have another opportunity to welcome you again at our studio in the near future. Warm regards, Katelijn.

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just a perfect little spot right on the water. Studio was perfect for us, just wish we could of stayed longer. Will definitely re-book this little place again. Telling everyone about it. Radiant heat took forever to warm up the place,. Hubby slept with clothes on the first night, but second day was just right. The stairs were quite challenging carrying everything. Would not recommend for people that have issues with knees or for the elderly. Found a great place to eat too just a couple exits away if your interested.... "Bittersweet". So yummy and the presentation of the desserts were amazing, Again, will be back and the price was great for the location and cute decor.

Not what we expected. . .

  • 2 of 5

While the location was perfect, and the view and access to the beach was GREAT, the place itself left a lot to be desired.

First, there was the fact that we were not told that we would have to go down 2 flights of stairs, through a locked gate to get to the floor where the front door was - that could have been a huge issue, especially with luggage and food supplies, etc. Anyone with any mobility problems would not have been able to get to the room. How to get to the room should have been described in the details of the place.

Second, you cannot call what is in that room a refrigerator. It barely holds anything, and even though we didn't bring much, we still had to keep most of it in our cooler, and go out for ice. And that was a pain. We like to stay put once we get to a place. If we had known the size of the fridge, we would have planned differently. Plus the fridge being in the closet in the bedroom area was weird.

Third, the furnishing of the room, or should I say the non-furnishing of the room. There was a bed, and basically that was it for inside. There were NO comfortable chairs in the room. You could pull out the beach chairs, which are not comfortable to sit in inside, and were completely sandy, or you could sit in the orange plastic dining chairs, with no arms, which were not comfortable at all, or the two tall bar stools, that can't be considered as chairs. We realize the place is small, and that wasn't the issue. Small or not, you should have two comfortable chairs for guests to sit in to watch TV or look out the window. They could sit under the TV when not in use, and be pulled out when you needed them.

Fourth, the lack of kitchen items. Granted, you already know before you get there that you're not going to be cooking any big meals. However, you do expect that there would be enough dishes, glasses, and utensils to eat food you brought in. A couple of plates, a few paper plates, a few utensils, two small glasses, two wine glasses, and two mugs don't work at all. Plastic drinking glasses, a full set of 4 of utensils, bowls for cereal, salads, a complete set of plates should be there as a basic.

We still made the most of our stay, because as I said, the location was wonderful. We had beautiful sunsets, and stars, and found multiple beach treasures. Update the description of how you get to the room, and the size of the fridge, add the chairs and kitchen basics, and you will be golden.

Perfect Relaxation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This studio is just perfect and the property manager provided all key information prior to stay. The view is spectacular and so peaceful. It was about 30 minutes to Monterrey and many quick day trips. We stayed for just three days so it was perfect. However if staying longer i would recommend the property owner provide a larger small size fridge freezer to accommodate breakfast and lunch stocking as needed.

The studio was very well kept clean, and modern.

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone we speak with.

Wonderful little studio

  • 5 of 5

Very nice studio. The bed was comfortable and it was very clean. Decor was great. IKEA at its best. Beautiful sunsets and loved listening to the ocean falling asleep. Stairs are a bit steep so be careful.
