We had a wonderful stay, exactly what we were looking for. Fabulous views, lots of room, the owner thought of everything. Close enough to restaurants to go out, but it still feels secluded and private. We all hope to come back another time.

Quiet, Peaceful Solitude with Nature in a Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

A truly magical stay at this beachfront dream home off the beaten path in Monterey/Moss Landing, CA. If you are looking to see and hear the ocean, open the windows and feel the breeze and watch the grass on the dunes blow in the wind, then this is the place for you. If you want to read in bed, watching the ocean waves crash on shore, then this is the place for you. If you want some quiet downtime, fireplace lit, kids playing games and collecting sand dollars on the beach, sitting in the hot tub and viewing the stars twinkling at night, then this is the place for you. The owner is detailed, available if needed and wonderful to work with. The home is upgraded, clean, and in an incredible location. There is not much around but there is dining in Moss Landing and we took the kids on the 40 minute drive to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk for some excitement. Otherwise, no one wanted to leave the house, except to walk on the beach. We cannot wait to go back. It is not in the heart of all the action of Monterey - so if you are looking for bars or restaurants to walk to in close proximity and lots of night life - this would not be a good fit. They are strict in following rules in regard to number allowed to sleep in home, and no parties allowed - but to us, that was the charm and perfection of this amazing find.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent vacation property and Alison was a fabulous host - easy to communicate with, resposive and helpful. The home itself is beautiful, clean and comfortable with ocean front views. The house is very spacious inside, more than enough room for our four adults and two kids. It is perfectly set up for families - my little boy loved the bunk bed room and the loft hide-out and all the kids games, books and dvds, and we appreciated the coffee table bumper and high chair for our 17 month old. The area is perfectly quiet and tranquil. My family and I really loved this place and hope to visit again one day! Thank you again Alison!

- 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.
