About Leslie Townsend

Located on the tip of the Monterey Peninsula, this home is at the top of a bluff between Pebble Beach and Monterey. Here you are just minutes away from Spanish Bay Inn, Cannery Row, Carmel-By-The-Sea, and world class golf, hiking and biking.

Leslie Townsend purchased this House in 1977

Why Leslie Townsend chose Pacific Grove

Built as the family home by Larry and Connie in 1976, this was their full-time residence for over ten years and all the family members have wonderful memories of holidays and birthday for decades shared here. Their children, Leslie and David, want to share this special property with you, hoping that you will enjoy it as much as they have for four decades.

What makes this House unique

Unobstructed views for a quarter mile in each direction give you an incredible view clear to Spanish Bay in one direction and clear up the coast across Monterey Bay to Santa Cruz in the other direction. Enjoy fabulous ocean views and a house with all of the amenities installed by a builder for his personal residence.

                                                              Mar Luna, the residence, was selected for four senior golfers on a short golf trip to the Monterey Peninsula. The residence provided private bedrooms (3) and a very comfortable sofa bed and a great location, both for access to Peninsula golf courses and with a world-class view over the spectacular shoreline. The residence was perfectly prepared for arrival, full marks to the housekeeper. While we pretty much only slept there for our short stay, all the conveniences were excellent, including big screen cable television and a fully equipped kitchen. Remember to check the thermostat upon arrival as the residence was hot the first night until we figured out how to turn the thermostat off. I highly recommend Mar Luna for its comfort and its terrific location.

                                                              Perfect location, wonderful home

                                                              Our stay at Mar Luna was terrific! This house is perfectly located near the water. I woke up each morning and jogged along the coast (Asilomar Beach). Most all of the rooms had a stunning view of the water. It is clean and well-equipped for families. Fantastic place!

                                                              Wonderful!

                                                              We have relatives in Pacific Grove, and have visited over the years. This time we wanted a special place for our adult children to join us, and since we love Asilomar, this house was just perfect. There are already many excellent reviews, so I can only eccho them: amazing views, steps from the best beaches where you can walk for miles, completely equipped, huge living room, clean, well-kept, beautifully decorated, excellent communication with owners, etc. We took the upstairs suite and felt quite special.

                                                              Very nice, clean and well stocked with essentials

                                                              Being a building contractor myself, your family built house Leslie is gorgeous. The layout, history and of course the view/location is fantastic! Perfect family vacation with mom and location fit us well for us coming from Sonoma county and kids coming up from school in Santa Barbara. Fabulous golf, restaraunts, walks on the beach it doesn’t get much better than that.

                                                              Leslie thank you again for opening up your family home to us it really was a treat, we are already talking about scheduling next trip down and hope too stay at your location again. FYI-skydiving at skydive Monterey bay is something everyone needs to do, 1st class operation.

                                                              We were searching for homes with views of the ocean - this house has unparalleled views from practically every room (even the garage!). We watched two glorious sunsets over the ocean from the huge master bedroom. You can walk across the street to the beach.

                                                              Communication with Leslie was seamless. The house is well stocked as the family still uses it for their vacation home.

                                                              It is very reasonably priced for the size and proximity to the ocean.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you very much for the nice review. We are truly happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. And, yes, the ocean views are spectacular from everywhere in the house!

                                                              We loved it! Great view of the ocean. Steps from the beach. Wished we had more time. Well stocked kitchen (knifes were dull) with basic spices. Thoughtful owner left clear instructions. It was a great stay!
