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 Central Coast

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.

Splendid home with amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed twice at this lovely, well maintained home. It is spacious and has everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The views are incomparable. The beds are comfy and new. The living room has plenty of seating, a fireplace feature, and a huge t.v. We already have our next trip there scheduled. Highly recommend!!!

Lovely place, priceless view!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my two sisters for a few days, for our annual sister visit. All three of us were pleased with our stay. The view is absolutely wonderful. The house is comfortable and quiet, with a well equipped kitchen, enormous living room, three bedrooms - each with a queen bed, back porch with chairs and table, ocean views from almost every window, beach pathway right across the street. Quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants and all of the Monterey tourist activities. The decor and furnishings are a bit dated, but who cares when you can sit at the dining room table watching whales in the distance! Quite reasonable and affordable, considering the location and amenities. I highly recommend and in fact we're already talking about returning next year!

Mar Luna is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What's not to love: non-stop views of the Pacific Ocean from so many windows (living, dining, kitchen and master), Asilomar Beach and miles of walking trail across the street, and Aquarium passes! Our family of four adults and two children (ages 5 and 2) absolutely loved our stay. The kitchen was fully equipped, the house was clean and in great shape, and opening and closing instructions were clear and easy. We brought bikes and enjoyed riding them from the house to Cannery Row and back, playing on the beach, hiking the ocean front trail, and visiting the Aquarium (our main reason for coming). If you need an ocean fix, this is the house!
