Shorebirds Resort , a bit of a kept secret on Monterey Bay, is nestled in protected natural habitats on the edge of farmland and a marine sanctuary and just 70 miles from San Francisco and 30 from Silicon Valley. . From your home on the beach you can totally unplug. Read a good book, watch for whales and dolphins or take long walks on a practically deserted beach. Or you can just let go…..fly a kite, kayak in the nearby slough, paddle board off the Santa Cruz harbor or ride a roller coaster!
Whatever outside beach side activities you enjoy, Maison Jean-Marie will be your personal sanctuary when you come home. The space is designed for comfort; cooking a great meal with local ingredients from nearby farm stands and fishers; enjoying a Martini, Mojito or Margarita with no place to drive! Sip on some of the great wines from the Santa Cruz Mountains or locally brewed beer. Enjoy raw milk cheeses from a selection of local dairy homesteads. An evening bonfire and smore's are a popular activity on this beach.
Maison Jean-Marie (named after our parents Jean and Marie) is our second home. We make it as inviting to you as we want it for ourselves and our friends. A large wall to wall window and deck provide a massive view of Monterey Bay. Look for whales, dolphins, seals and the occasional otter while enjoying your morning coffee. There’s an never ending fly-over of pelicans.
The condo is luxuriously decorated and furnished to match the your coastal experience. It includes:
A comfortable living area with wood fireplace, bar, cushy couch (for afternoon naps)
A beach view deck, with bar table and chairs and gas grill.
A beach view master bedroom with a king size Select Comfort bed. A private bath. Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves unraveling on the sand.
A guest room with both a queen and a twin bed and a second full bath.
A fully equipped kitchen that would please any serious home culinarian
A dinner area where you can break bread, enjoy a good bowl of pasta and catch up on those stories that friends and family never seem to have time to do.
Everything you need for beach fun (chairs, kite, boogie board, beach blankets, smore sticks, things to build sand castles!)
Tennis & Basket Ball Courts
