Perfect for our family!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our family, the kitchen was great for the many cooks, the eating area was just right for our 6 adults and 2 children, the views of Monterey Bay were awesome and the beach access was great. As they say in real estate location location location!

Extremely clean and amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic! The views were amazing and it's the third house from the end of the street so the traffic is low and the access to the beach was literally three minutes. Plenty of beach toys for little ones, no toys in the house but we were outside most of the time anyway. Elevator was helpful, especially for bringing up groceries or luggage. Floorplan is great with bedrooms on second floor, offering privacy if you are entertaining, all the entertaining (kitchen, living, dining, etc) are on the third floor. Truly this is a spectacular property and is very spacious, you won't regret renting this. Owners were so accommodating and responsive with any questions I had while there. If we get the opportunity to rent again, we definitely will!

Extraordinary beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, father, and I just returned from a wonderful 3 day beach vacation and stayed in this lovely property! It is truly just steps away from the beach with stunning views of the ocean. When we weren't on the beach we enjoyed the ocean from the beautiful balconies off the living room and bedrooms. We cooked all of our meals at the house and found the kitchen well-stocked and a joy to use. The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom had a really nice fireplace. We also used the fireplace in the living room. The elevator made this trip possible for us since my father is unable to climb stairs. Not only was this property beautiful and clean, but it also was very comfortable and in an ideal location on a gorgeous beach.

The owners were wonderful to work with and I really can't say enough good things about our overall experience. Highly recommended!

Perfect! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, it's one of those places you love the more you are there, pictures don't do it justice!

The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable, the house is right on the beach, sunsets are amazing to watch from the balcony or inside, ....we can't wait to go back!

Not to mention the property managers are so sweet and great to work with...it really is the best kept secret on the California coast.

We will be back very soon! (Thank you again for everything!)

Mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for one last summer getaway, a large house, close to the beach, that could accommodate our 12 year-old granddaughter and her good friend and another couple. Here, we found the near perfect place. Just steps to the beach, this home has magnificent ocean views, well appointed kitchen and a nice big garage which our cars easily fit inside, along with all our beach gear. And, Diana and Kirk were most helpful for any needs we had. We had a great time!

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

First of all, many thanks to Diana and Kirk for their understanding, patience and thoughtfulness in accommodating our families' needs. Their beautiful and spacious beach house was a perfect fit for our family. It is clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our family enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable weekend and some for the day celebrating our family and my 80th birthday. The beach is just a few steps away and easily accessible. We were impressed with the fully equipped kitchen making it fun to cook while listening to the ocean waves. Some of our family members are elderly and ill so therefore the elevator was quite useful in getting up to the second and third floors. We all had a very pleasant time and didn't want to leave. The off-season weather in February was perfect and we enjoyed the time on the patio overlooking the ocean and the sunsets. We all agreed that we want to come back!
