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!

We had a great stay here- everything was beautiful and being so close to the beach was wonderful. The house had everything we needed, and I really appreciated the thoughtful touches- from cozy blankets and pillows to the drawers being labeled. We are already planning when we can come back!

How lucky are we to have stayed at this amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to leave! Alison was a fantastic host, she thought of everything. She was very responsive and helpful. This property could not be any more perfect. So cozy and well cared for, and the setting is gorgeous. Private, peaceful. Every amenity imaginable. So much to do and see within a short drive. Our favorites, Whale Watching with BlueOceanWhaleWatch and the hiking through the giant Redwoods. Thank you for having us!! We hope to return and stay longer next time.

We stayed for the weekend in this beautiful house, and we are already looking forward to come back. Despite I had many plans, the house was so wonderful that we finally only left it to take a few walks on the beach. Not only the views are breathtaking, but the house has everything to make feel you as comfortable as if you were in your own home -or even more!-. Thank you Alison once again for everything!

You can hear the waves from the house

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly as shown. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this beautiful and welcoming home. The beach is spectacular and you hear the waves from the house. I sat on the window bench for morning coffee, afternoon wine and anytime in-between. We were a family of five and there was ample space for more. The place was clean, the communication with Alison was spot on, there was a welcome bottle of wine (always a nice touch) and lots of information on things to do in the area. From the fireplace to the hot tub you have everything you need for a fantastic get away.

- 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.
