About Violet

Sometimes, I love long walks at beach and sand and quiet place to just go away from everything and enjoy the nature. The Monterey Dunes Colony beach is that place. It provides miles of beaches and acres of sand dunes. I love leaving my foot prints in the sand and enjoy the waves.

                                                                  Lacey C.Seattle, Wa

                                                                  There were cobwebs and dust everywhere - even in the most noticeable places (like on the TV table in the living room). My daughter crawls and by the end of each day here pants were filthy from crawling around on the dirty carpet. Also, there was not a beach towel in sight in a beach house...that's not really something one would pack with them on a plane. All the towels were old and very small. The bathrooms weren't that clean either. I just felt dirty after we left. Also, the WIFI was very spotty. It really only worked in the main living room, so no sense in trying to watch TV in the back bedroom.

                                                                  Excellent Location

                                                                  Daniel C.

                                                                  House was fairly clean. Location was very special. Would certainly consider revisiting.

                                                                  Amazing view

                                                                  mmsmSanta Rosa, CA

                                                                  We were a group of 7 one night, 4 the next, and the House was perfect for our group. The access to the beach was ideal, and we all enjoyed walking over to the office to soak in the hot tub. My husband and son (10) enjoyed the basketball courts. We took many walks on the long Beach, and the kids enjoyed all the drift wood. An afternoon in Carmel and another in Monterey- both so close but great to leave the crowds and come back to this peaceful retreat.

                                                                  Great location, nice property, though a little old and tired.

                                                                  Royal K.

                                                                  The property was nice and clean except for one small issue. The owner was fair with me and gave me a partial refund because of the issue. The property was built in the 70's, so it is a little old and outdated, but for the price and great location we were happy.

                                                                  Nice House But Watch Out for ALL THE FEES

                                                                  Kimberly C.

                                                                  The house itself is nice. The beds were pretty comfortable with decent quality sheets. As the house is on the beach the tap water is not the best, meaning the ice and drinking water have a strange taste. It would be nice if the house had some sort of filter for the faucet or even something like a Brita pitcher. The house is in an excellent location as it is right on the beach and is about a 30 minute drive from downtown Monterey.

                                                                  However, I feel that the property is misrepresented in that the cost per night that shows up when searching on HomeAway is significantly lower than what you end up paying with all the taxes and fees added on. I was careless when booking (which was obviously my fault) and did not closely examine the fees and assumed that at least some of them were refundable. They were not. There is a reservation fee which is understandable, but what is charged seems a bit high. I could even understand a cleaning fee if it was not over three fourths of the listed price for just the house for one nights. I cannot however understand why guests are being charged to help pay an HOA fee. I know the house has access to a few neighborhood amenities such as tennis courts, but the amount being charged to go towards the HOA is way too high. There is also a service fee which is even more than the HOA fee, and it is unclear what it is even for. The fees alone almost doubled the final cost of the house for 2 nights. And this is all before taxes. My parents were understandably concerned about the price and also decided they wanted to be closer to Monterey, so I attempted to find the cancellation policy for the rental to no avail. When I contacted Violet to ask what the policy was, she never answered. This is the part I cannot get over.

                                                                  She accepted to my booking request in less than an hour but then disappeared and could not be bothered to show any sort of customer service. This is likely because she knew I had booked close to the dates I would need the house and that if she waited long enough I would be stuck with her property, both because of the hassle to find another place and because of whatever cancellation policy she might have (never got an answer about what the policy is by the way).

                                                                  I give the house 4 stars and the customer service 0.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Dear Kimberly,

                                                                  Thank you for choosing my property as your vacation spot.

                                                                  I agree with you about the exhuabrant fees. I as an owner is hurting and rethinking the best way to continue serving my guests in a WIN-WIN scenario. The HOA fee that I tag on is to cover the extra fee I am paying for renting my home in the gated community. It does not cover the HOA fees that I pay monthly and annually. As for taxes , cleaning fees and VRBO service fees, I wanted to be transparent on what I am working with.

                                                                  When your pre-pay reservation payment came in, the online vetted you and sent me an email that informed me that you were already vetted, hence I automatically accepted, even though I was off the grid. When I was back, I followed up with you to provide you with the address and access codes to my house.

                                                                  The CANCELLATION POLICY is stated online to be 60 days prior to stay date. I was not trying to avoid you in anyway. If you read reviews from my previous guests, they would indicate that one of my best qualities is my ability to respond and address my customers questions. I take customer service very serious and apologize that I did not meet your standards at this time.

                                                                  I hope to make it up to you if you choose my place as your vacation spot on your future vacation plans.

                                                                  As for the water taste, yes, I will provide a water filter. Thank you again for the suggestions and feedbacks.

                                                                  Best,
