About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bath home in the forest but close to the city with ocean views

Scenic, Serene, Secluded

Location, location, location.  Forest meets seashore in this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home which is perfect for watching city lights and sailing boats, pines and deer. Situated on a hill in the Monte Vista area, the living room, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and deck afford views of the sea and forest. Freeway access is immediate. Del Monte Shopping Center is a 10-minute walk away. Historic downtown is a little farther. Beach access is a  short drive or a hearty walk. Regardless, you will be in the perfect location to enjoy all that Monterey, Carmel and the Central Coast have to offer.
This two-bedroom, two-bath home has an open floor plan which includes a river rock fireplace with remote control gas heatilator insert, wi-fi, a 42 inch flat screen T.V., cable, DVD/CD player and Bose surround sound. The remodeled kitchen has granite countertops, an eating bar and every necessity from salad spinner to cocktail shaker. 
This 1350 square foot home sleeps four in one Queen and one King-sized bed, with high quality linens and new mattresses. There is room for one or two small guests in a bonus room with French doors and a trundle bed. Two large bathrooms, both with showers and one with a claw foot lounging tub, insure privacy and comfort. Lounge chairs take relaxation from indoors to outdoors. This truly is a gorgeous property with huge windows, fantastic views of the forest, city lights and Monterey bay, and privacy.
Your rental includes all linens, ample driveway parking (the garage can accommodate one small car), dishwasher, disposal, coffee maker, washer/dryer, wi-fi and bonus room with daybed.  One month of spectacular surroundings will cost you $4,500. Rates rise for special events like the ATT Pro-Am and Concourse d'Elegance. You will also be responsible for a non-refundable cleaning deposit of $150.00.
This is a one-story property with easy access and only two porch steps.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We're a central valley couple who have always loved to visit the Monterey area. We finally took the plunge and bought this beautiful house in 2013 after looking for many months. We eventually plan to retire here at least part time and until them have decided to share our house with others who love the Monterey area.

Why the Owner Chose Monterey, CA, USA:
For us, the house is perfectly sized and perfectly located. You can sit in the kitchen/living room/dining room area and literally have views through the forest to the city lights and Monterey Bay. A spacious deck allows similar views. The house is very light, attract and comfortable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Living in the forest with a view of the ocean. It is the best of both worlds
