About the property

Ocean front with views of the Monterey Bay facing South toward Monterey. Property has completed some renovations. There are new carpets through out the condo and the whole condo has been re-painted. We have replaced the two sofas with futon sofas. New photos are up although we need to get a new photo taken of the living room. Shorebirds 196 is located on the 3rd floor which is ideal for maximizing the view but please be aware there is a flight of about 16 steps from the 2nd floor to the 3rd floor.

Nice place but one blind is missing in living room making it hard to sleep.

The front Office doesn't communicate well. You have to search for their office. They forget to tell you that the WIFI doesn't work, Unless you call the carrier. The front door key doesn't work well. My wife spent 15 min trying to get in. The shower door top rail is to low, I keep hitting my head on it, it's only 5 feet tall. The couch leg was broken and we kept on having to fix it. I noticed some ants in our food and on the kitchen counter. I expected more from a high end place.

The property is dated and location is remote. The gift shop and convenience store were helpful.

The only functional tv is in the living room. All the mattresses very uncomfortable. The shower door in the master bedroom is designed for tub/shower combo but is a shower only. Therefore, the door is so low a person must duck to enter the shower. There were ants in the kitchen and bathroom.

Beach Trip

  • 4 of 5

The unit was nicer than expected for a rental. Very clean, with new carpet and paint. Did have some ants in bathrooms upon checking, with prompt response to address problem, thanks Justin. Both bedroom closets are filled with extra supplies, so no room to use. No hair dryer or iron/board. Second bedroom mattresses need replacement due to wear. Great location, beachfront, and easy access to Hwy. 1. Would recommend.

Beautiful.view, & easy access to beach

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful view and easy access to the beach. Carts to bring your stuff up to the unit. Except last part is staircase. Unit was ok but a little dated. Well stock for a fun time on the beach. A few non working items, toaster, tv in bedroom, and a couple lights. Carpet is stained and they said it should be replace soon.

Beautiful grounds, but not this condo!

  • 2 of 5

My husband, daughter and grandsons and I stayed at this condo for a week in July, 2017. The reason I gave it two stars is because the view is fantastic! The condition of the condo was really bad. The carpets were heavily soiled and stained. The walls were dirty looking with a lot of marks. The kitchen cabinets were greasy and smelled as did the condo when we first walked in. The furniture was heavily used and on the shabby side. It is in need of much updating and deep cleaning. On the last night we did not have hot water. We called the office and it was taken care of by the next morning.

The positives are: friendly office staff, beautiful grounds and location. Truly peaceful, with great beaches. We would like to return, but not at this condo.
