Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Monterey Dunes. This property is immaculate and very well equipped. We were close to the wonderful Monterey Bay Aquarium as well as incredible whale watching in Moss Landing. We highly recommend Sanctuary Cruises for whale watching. We had an amazing marine biologist on board and her enthusiasm contributed to a perfect morning of whale watching. The beach at Monterey Dunes is very special- one can walk for miles and not see a soul. The pelicans and shore birds were fascinating to watch.

Finally the owners Randy and Terri were very responsive and helpful in answering our questions. Perfect stay! Thank you.

Relaxing Spacious Beach House

  • 5 of 5

If anyone wants a wonderful, seaside accommodation, I would suggest this home. We had two days with my daughter, son in law and grandkids and was such a pleasant, memorable experience. It was a bit cold and foggy, but we still enjoyed this beautiful beach. The home is tastefully decorated, fully equipped with anything you might need, ideally located with fantastic ocean views, and a short walk down the path and you're directly on the beach. We enjoyed collecting sand dollars, flying kites, wading in the ocean, and strolls along the sandy beach. The owner, Randy, was ultra responsive and a pleasure to work with.All in all, it is a fantastic rental.

One of the most relaxing vacations we've had. The rental worked for everyone young and old.

  • 5 of 5

The rental had everything we needed. We did not leave Monterey Bay dunes colony for the entire week. We love the clubhouse and it's activities. We felt very much at home here.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property and the photos on the website really do not do it justice. The views from the house and the direct access to dunes and beach are amazing. The house itself has everything you could want and there is also access to a shared pool, hot tub and tennis courts. We stayed here for five nights during a mini tour of northern California and used it as a base for exploring the Monterey / Carmel area - it was perfect.
