Decor is horrible -takes away from the serene beach experience:(
My family and I have stayed at several Monterey Dunes Colony condos. This one is the only one we would not rent again. The location is great, the actual unit is not. Every wall is covered with someone’s garage sale finds, every room packed with old musty furniture, every surface covered with knick knacks. It completely takes away from the serene beach experience. The property management company is responsive, as they dealt with a plumbing issue we were having. There are far better condos to rent in this development.
Each home at the colony is personalized with the owners touch.We appreciate your comments .Fyi the plumbing complaint you were concerned about was found to be a frivolous complaint by the plumbing contractor.
The house was nice and clean. Very enjoyable being able to park in a garage. Loved the large patio out the ground floor master bed. A couple of suggestions I would make.
#1 get rid of some of the dishes in the cabinets ( when we would open a cabinet it was so full of dishes that it was hard to get out what you wanted without almost breaking something.
#2 The recliner in the living room is breaking down (my son sat in it and reclined and we almost couldnt get it to go back down.
Again these are just a couple of suggestions. We had a fabulous time and will be renting it again.
Great Location and Price
This is a great location for the cost. It is right on the beach with gorgeous views. The place can use some drastic updating as it is old and dated inside. There is a strange smell coming from the front bedroom that needs to be addressed, suspect it to be house plants sitting in stagnant water. Too much clutter around in kitchen and bathrooms, there is no space for food in kitchen, and personal items in bathrooms. Also, TV was much to small in family room and there is NO WIFI. Which was good for family disconnecting, but cell service was spotty and there was no land line. With all that being said it is a beautiful spot the views can't be beat!
Nice and comfortable
We enjoyed our days at Monterey Dunes Colony. In its central location we were able to easily visit both Monterey and Santa Cruz, and of course very much enjoyed being right on the ocean front. The house was very comfortable, especially since there were 3 full bathrooms to go with the 3 bedrooms. The only problem was that the heat did not function except in one bedroom and 2 of the bathrooms.
DON'T STAY HERE!!!!
We were celebrating our 40th anniversary with our grandsons our son and daughter in law! When we got to the house we walked through it and noticed that the dust was so thick on some of the tables we could write our name in it and the furniture was stained and dirty. The kitchen floor had not been swept or moped in I don't know how long! I e-mailed Tom Allen and informed him of it and he e-mailed me back and said he would notify housekeeping.
Once we got back from dinner we started unpacking and noticed all of things we missed!!!
The downstairs bedroom had a horrible smell, so bad that my son and daughter-in-law slept on the couch! That room was closed the whole week! We tried everything to get the smell out of it but nothing worked!
Bathrooms had rust in shower, sink's heater grates! The grates were filthy!! The furniture though the house look like it came out of 20 different yard sales! The dining room seats in the chairs felt like you were going to fall through them.We had to go to the store to get batteries for the dvd player remote and tv remote for the livingroom (no remote for the master so no tv in the master). Once we got it going the DVD only played Black and White.
It was a very frustrating week with nothing going right. We couldn't wait go get out of there!
We left it MUCH cleaner than when we got there!!!
We rented a condo in the Dunes, Thanksgiving of 2014 with the family and it was amazing, it wasn't available this week. Maybe my expectations are too high because of this but I would expect it to be clean. We felt like we went from the Plaza to a Motel 6!
Perfect family vacation
This place was perfect for our family of 6. Older but clean and comfortable which was our priority. Great size and right on the quiet secluded beach. The kids loved kite flying, hunting for treasures on the beach and even seeing all the farm land around. The ocean was beautiful and we loved listening to it all night. Centrally located to all the places we visited. This place was hard to leave on our days going out and nice to come home to at the end of the day. Wish we could have stayed longer - will definitely be back.
Thanks for your response.We hope to hear back from you soon.
Visit downtown Monterey, Carmel and the Monterey Bay Aquarium which are all located within a short 20 minute drive.
