About the property

Zatara 5BR 3.5BA, Sleeps 12

What could be lovelier than expansive glass patio doors opening to a wrap-around balcony overlooking Monterey Bay?

Designed for grand views of the sea, this custom Pacific Grove home includes three verandas with lounge chairs… and a private dining area for two. Romantic arched doorways frame tiled outdoor living spaces, and indoors, serene colors create an air of peace and tranquility.

One of our larger homes, Zatara sleeps up to twelve in five bedrooms (two kings, two queens and four twins) and 3-½ baths. The spacious open kitchen and extensive granite countertops are functional for both meal preparation and entertaining, and two dining tables plus bar stools provide ample seating. Your home-away-from-home includes three flat screen TVs with cable, two DVD players, TV with X-box game system, CD/digital alarm clocks in each room, and Internet access.

Leave the doors open to usher in cool sea breezes and whisk away the hassles of daily life. And if you can tear yourself away, head out on the coastal trail - you’re less than five minutes from Lover’s Point, Point Pinos Lighthouse, Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Gorgeous View

  • 4 of 5

The view is absolutely the best part. Great living space, updated kitchen. The only negative is the master bath and bedroom definitely need remodeled! Had a great time.

Perfect location and size

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9, aged 5-73 enjoyed our several days inMonterey at Zatara. The spacious rooms, comfortable beds, gorgeous views of the Bay and proximity to just about everything suited us well. We could easily run along the coast, explore tidal pools or just sit on the balcony overlooking the Bay. The accommodation was well equipped for cooking and for eating as a large group as well as the common areas were spacious and suited for playing board games or watching TV together. The garage was a bit difficult to access as it was in the back part of the house with a bit of a tight turning angle, but this was a minor issue. We’d definitely rent this property again!

Best house rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, clean, well furnished and comfortable. It easily accommodated 8 adults and 2 children. We loved watching the ocean life from the deck and could hardly tear ourselves away the first few days. Kitchen was well equipped with dishes, cookware, glasses. We took turns cooking and it was a real pleasure to do so. The beds were comfortable with nice linens and plenty of extra blankets and pillows. It was very nice to have supplies, soaps and detergents, present when we arrived.

We were a little surprised at the amount of daytime traffic on Ocean View but it was quiet at night. The driveway was a bit challenging with the four cars we had.

Outstanding Family Vacation House on Monterey Bay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very roomy with fantastic ocean views from the main level as well as two of the bedrooms on the lower level. You can feel and hear the ocean! The ocean was a source of entertainment with the sea lions, otters, sail and fishing boats, fishermen, and surfers in clear view. The kitchen was well stocked and ideal for entertaining a large group. We spent most of our time in the kitchen and dining area. We enjoyed the veranda for outside viewing and relaxation. Before arriving we were concerned about the amount of traffic on Ocean View Drive, but the traffic was very minimal and posed no problems. We were very close to Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel. Small issues were resolved within hours after calling the 24 hour service line. The property and location exceeded our expectations, except for the following: Some of the windows needed to be cleaned due to construction being done, the bathrooms need updating (especially the fixtures which are corroding), the linens were considered to only fair, and the pillows were not good. That being said, the rest of the good things far outweighed our dissatisfaction with these items. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative advising them of the shortcomings noted above.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We’re happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Zatara (and the fabulous oceanfront location). We apologize that some of the windows needed cleaning—we clean them quite frequently, but between the ocean spray, the seagulls, recent construction and the high occupancy it’s sometimes difficult to keep up! We do agree that the bath faucets need to be updated. The owners have been pouring money into the home (radiant heating, etc.), and the bath fixtures are high priority on their “to do” list. They also change out the pillows and linens often—and they have probably been changed since your visit in May—but I’ll definitely alert them just in case.

Impressive oceanfront with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We came here to celebrate with my siblings my father's birthday. We were blessed with good weather and clear skies which made for amazing ocean views from the kitchen, bedrooms, and dining room. The kids really enjoyed the Wi and Xbox which kept them entertained all weekend. Cooking together and eating together were the highlight given the views from the kitchen. This place had everything we needed. I've rented many VRBO and AirBnb places for my extended family - this one tops them all.

Pacific Grove is a charming seaside village of restored Victorians that's minutes from all the amenities of the Monterey Peninsula: the Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, Carmel, Big Sur and Pebble Beach.
