Five of us shared the condo while visiting the area for a family wedding the week of July 4, 2014. Fabulous. the condo was perfect. Clean and well supplied with everything we needed to fly in from across the country and spend a week at the beach, and also dress up for a wedding. Views of Monterey bay from the patio and the master bedroom included the lights of what must have been Monterey at night, as well as watching sail boats and fishing boats cruising along the horizon. From the beach which was only steps from our door, we saw seals, dolphins and a sea otter. From the other side of the building the canal/river view included beautiful birds (we even saw an owl), and pastoral farm lands and mountains in the distance. I hope we can visit again. Mary's condo is very special, with just the right mix of modern comfort and functionality. And the beach location can't be beat. Thank you, Mary.
