Car: Recommended

Dozens of well kept Tennis Courts, Bocci & Basketball; walking trails and private beaches; a short drive to Moss Landing restaurants, Monterey, Carmel (south), and Santa Cruz to the north. We're centrally located, yet "away from it all"! Enjoy the Monterey Bay Aquarium, winery tours, or even a helicopter ride along the stunning Monterey Bay!
