  • 5 of 5

We often use VRBO, etc., to find vacation homes but I have NEVER experienced such a fully-organized, equipped and responsive effort throughout. The home is beautiful, spacious and well furnished.... VIEWS are spectacular. Comfort of everyone (3 senior couples). BUT.... the unparalled guide to the house and surroundings, the labeled cabinets, the access to the owner, basically the completeness of this experience, exceeded any of my prior 8 vacation home rentals. I highly recommend.

Fantastic property for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Property is well maintained and spacious so lots of room for the family to be together but not too close to each other. The decor is beautiful and gives an upscale yet comfortable feel to the place. Very far from crowds and beach is almost void of humans but for the fishermen who frequent the beach park nearby. The dunes which the property is in the middle of is a true treasure and teaming with wildlife. The owner/manager is very professional and organized. Highly recommended.

Wonderful location, great home layout, highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

That's a real photo and a very real view you get here. The dunes provide an amazing surrounding to what is really a unique location - a large variety of vegetation and colors. You open the windows, and the cool ocean breeze makes it all better. The beach is a private beach for the condo community - meaning, we often had it to ourselves, with no one within 1000 feet either direction. I found 7 or 8 fully intact sand dollars on this beach. I watched the sun set on the Pacific from the hot tub. The rec center, with basketball, tennis, shuffleboard, and bocce ball, and a pool, is in high-quality condition. Monterey is 20 minutes down the road, and is a great town to visit. The owner is very pleasant, organized, and responsive. We would stay here again for sure.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! Everything was perfect! If you have any thoughts about renting a home in this area, you can stop your search here. When we were looking through VRBO we had many homes to choose from and it was difficult to make a decision. Once we arrived I was immediately positive we had picked the right house!! I have even driven past some of the other choices in the area and it just reaffirmed my decision that Alison’s House was the correct choice. If this home matches your family’s vacation criteria then stop searching, you’ve found the right home!

Fabulous beach house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful townhome located at/on the beach. Perfect location for our girls trip, not to far of a drive from Santa Cruz or Montery. This would also be a perfect spot for a family runion or any type of getaway where the focus is time with each other, relaxation, beach walks, wine tasting, whale and sunset watching.

- Our beach house is part of the Monterey Dunes Colony - a small community of 120 homes located on a secluded beachfront on the Monterey Bay.

- Perfectly situated near enough to tourist attractions yet off the beaten path in a secluded beachfront oasis.

- The Colony is located slightly north of Monterey city in Moss Landing. Many whale watching expeditions leave from Moss Landing Marina only 6 miles away. The renowned Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve - a wonderful place to hike and kayak among the seals and otters - is just 5 minutes away as well.

- Monterey Dunes Colony is also located within a 30 minute drive of other Central Coast tourist destinations: Carmel-by-the-Sea (20 miles), Monterey's Cannery Row and Aquarium (18 miles), 17-Mile Drive (24 miles) & Pebble Beach (22 miles)

- The region features gourmet dining, world-famous golf courses such as Pebble Beach, unparalleled outdoor recreation and more.
