About Julia Brandt

Hop on a plane and land minutes from our home. Monterey Airport is fun!

We purchased this property for our parents who love the sea and the sounds of the waves. I am an artist who enjoys studying my music, painting, and creating with no other distraction than sound of waves. It's a great place to catch up on the lost art of letter writing too.

Why Julia Brandt chose Castroville

this property had the very best feeling of space, fresh ocean breezes, and freedom of thought. The tall ceilings give the feeling of a palace on the sea. September and October are the warmest and most spectacular months of the year....one December it was in the 80's.

Want a massage in your own beach view bedroom? Massage therapist Lisa available to be on site. References available. Please inquire with Julia

What makes this condo unique

It's a retreat close to Carmel, Pebble Beach, Marina, Big Sur, San Jose, and Santa Cruz. If you love birds, this is ideal with 2 story windows and wind currants that soar. Great for reading, socializing, and being with friends and relatives. Front area, the beach, the upstairs, the living room, all have places for to wander. Hot tub is very very nice.

On windy days...waves are fun to watch from the safety of your own bedroom .

Please be aware that all beaches on the coastal Monterey area can have high surf due to weather. Please check beach conditions before boating, scuba diving, fishing, beach combing and tuba playing.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice, clean, and well maintained. Beds were very comfortable. The owners were generous in providing extra little amenities in the kitchen and bath. Appliances were updated. The beach was very private. We didn't visit the pool or clubhouse as we were not fortunate with the weather.

Cozy and great location

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, very cozy and clean with great views and perfect access to the beach. Julia was extraordinarily helpful and eager to make sure she did all possible to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Amazing family to rent from and an amazing home to be able to use.

perfect

  • 5 of 5

We used this perfect house as home base for my wife, myself, and our 6 children. Everything about is was perfect - clean, excellent furniture, all working appliances, and a view of the ocean and beach that can't be beat. We came from Baltimore, and had never been to the California Coast. We would definitely stay here again.

Sea Breezes and Dolphins

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Julia's lovely condo and it was even better than the first trip. She has replaced several appliances and that makes it just about perfect. This year it was all adults and so we were on the go more and spent less time in the condo but we did get to use some of the community amenities which was nice. The beds are wonderfully confortable. The fact that there is just about everything that you need including a good stock of coffee and condiments was nice as well. Local fruit was all we really needed to add. The bottle of local wine was an especially nice touch.

We can highly recommend both the condo and Julia's outstanding hospitality.

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time. Beach area is lovely we spent most of our time there. The jacuzzi area was very relaxing in the evening. House had everything you would need to fix meals and enjoy an extended stay. We would definitely book time with this owner again. Communication was great, house was great the overall experience was amazing.

Most Recent Stay in Monterey Dunes

The property was well cared for and provided all the necessary things for a very comfortable stay. The owner even left us a nice bottle of wine, sparkling water and chocolate with a handwritten note. That was a nice touch. We will certainly return as our stay was a very memorable one.
