Amazing Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo was even nicer than imagined and the view was absolutely amazing! Very safe and friendly atmosphere. Very clean and comfortably furnished and just steps to the beach. Would love to stay here again!

Secluded in Shorebirds

  • 2 of 5

Location and full frontal view was AMAZING! Unfortunately the interior needs a major upgrade, especially the carpet. Apparently the owner was going to rehab right after we left. So before you book, we recommend that you confirm this has actually happened.

Owner's Response: The guest correct, this condo has an exceptional view of Monterey Bay, 30 feet from the sand, directly facing the ocean. Yes, she is the last one to use before 100% upgrade with brand new kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter tops, glass shower with tiles, cam lighting, ceiling fans, appliances, carpet, fireplace, flat panel tv's, washer/dryer, new texture and paint, new heaters, new curtains. The remodel already half way through and will be expected to be completed around mid May 2017 assuming no unforseeable delays. I am sure I will be using the condo myself more and still will be renting on a limited basis to couples only (no kids). As expected, some guests will treat the condo like their home and take care of the place exceptionally well but others are very rough. It is very challenging to maintain vacation rentals due to floating guests but I try my best. I use highly professional cleaning company after every depature. I hope and pray my future guests are mindful of keeping it clean. Thank you for your understanding advance.

Beautiful view, relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo has a superb location and view. It's well stocked, and the bed is very comfy. The carpeting was a bit worn, and the sliding doors dirty from all the rain, but otherwise everything was great. New patio table is definitely needed. The owner was very responsive and accommodating, we had a great time.

Great location, very nice unit, very comfortable and clean, fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in for the entire stay. No need to go anywhere else. Great time to unwind and watch the endless surf roll onto the beach. The unit was just as it has always been, very clean and comfortable. Good time to rest and read some good books. Gotta come back more often.

A Perfect Place to Relax and Recharge

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The 180 degree view of Monterey Bay was both beautiful and filled with a wide spectrum of marine life. As we sat out on the patio, we saw several whales, dolphins, seals, and sea birds. Because this unit is closest to the beach, it was very quiet as other occupants made their way to their units before reaching our area. The sound of the surf was very peaceful through the night. We will definitely come back here next time we come down to Monterey Bay.
