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.

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.

Beautiful and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home across the street from the beach. House was beautifully decorated and large enough for five couples to enjoy time together. We would definitely stay in this home again for another get-together.

Amazingly beautiful home by the water

  • 5 of 5

This home was so beautiful, I cannot emphasize enough. I had my wedding in Monterey and I stayed there with my family for the weekend. It was perfect back drop for my getting ready photos. There was an ample amount of space. I thought it was great how one of the bedrooms with 4 bunk beds (3 twin size & 1 full size), also had a trundle bed that pulled out from under the full size bunk bed. We had a great stay, we didn't want to leave!

A home with a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 long time friends looking to have a relaxing time in Monterey...and Zatara was perfect!! The views of the ocean are breath-taking!! Within couple of hours of being there, we were able to see seals, whales, plenty of birds, etc right from the balcony!!!

Spacious bedrooms, comfortable beds, great layout of the kitchen, dining and the living room area with plenty of space to enjoy to enjoy each other!!!

Plenty of TVs, DVDs, etc but who had time to watch anything? So many areas to sit outside on first floor or on the ground floor! There is a barbecue, if you are so inclined! We just sat outside on the balcony either sipping tea/coffee in am or wine in the evening!

Mornings were awesome....going for long walks with miles and miles of changing landscapes.

Great neighbors who welcomed us when we them feed the birds!!

The decor on the outside blew our minds---people passing by almost always had to look at it and admire!!

The grocery stores are not too far, the 17-mile road is also nearby....

To sum it up, this was just perfect for us and would recommend to anyone planning to have a great time and need multiple bed rooms!!

Our Zatara family week

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 12 had a wonderful week in July. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds and linens were comfy and attractive. It really felt like home except for the bathrooms and some of the door fixtures which need updating and repair. It is a beautiful house.

Sitting on the balcony enjoying the ocean calm and action was a favorite. We will definitely go back!

First Class Accommodations Near Monterey Bay Aquarium

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Zatara for 4 nights from March 28-April 1, 2017 to accommodate ourselves, our daughter, her husband and their six children. Monterey Bay management was very professional and responsive. The price was fair. Zatara is ideally located, ideally sized and designed, and ideally fitted out for our family holiday. We enjoyed the sunrise each morning, plus the birds, the boats, and the waves. The house is in good proximity to the Aquarium in Monterey. Point Lobos is a short drive, as are Carmel and its charms. The house layout was perfect for our family: my wife and I took the ensuite master bedroom upstairs, and our daughter and her family had their own suite downstairs, which afforded the parents the opportunity to keep tabs on the children ages 11-17. Parking was adequate for our two vehicles, though one must be careful backing onto the street. The area is quiet as can be. The kitchen was amply equipped with first class appliances and chef's tools, allowing us to prepare meals when we stayed home rather than enjoying the wonderful restaurants nearby. The living room and outside balcony were generously sized to allow everyone to gather for a movie while allowing additional room for group jigsaw puzzles, solitary reading and quiet contemplation of nature. The washer/dryer allowed us to keep the kids in clean clothes. The housekeeping prior to our arrival was impeccable: the place was immaculate. Overall, we highly recommend Zatara and certainly will return the next time we need something this size.
