Overview

Monterey House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Welcome to "Sanctuary in the Dunes"!

This oceanside 1-bedroom 1-bath condominium nestles against the sand on Del Monte beach in Monterey. From your living room and wraparound deck, enjoy a panorama of pelicans, otters, dolphins and vast shoreline views wrapping around the bay. Use your complimentary binoculars to bring you even closer to nature's splendor.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

At night look to the southwest as the harbor dresses for evening in a million twinkling lights. Then look to the northeast, where your senses are soothed by ocean sounds and saltwater smells. Walking on the beach at dusk will be one of the most memorable experiences of your visit.

This single-story corner unit's closest neighbor is sand and surf. Follow the footpath just outside your door to the beach. You find everything you will need for your day at the beach: beach chairs, a picnic basket, coolers, umbrellas, blankets and towels. Take one of the many books or magazines provided to read while basking in the sun. When it is time to return to your vacation dwelling you'll see that your home-away-from-home is as special as its location.

Decorated in crisp whites and ocean blues, this 900-square-foot condo epitomizes seashore elegance. The open floor plan features a living area with a plush sofa and chair, a dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with full-sized appliances making cooking easy. The china and glassware are worthy of entertaining your most discriminating guests. Whimsical artwork dots the walls with inspired reminders that you are at the beach.

Other amenities include: Unlimited long distance to the 48 contiguous States, WIFI, cable television, HD TV with a DVD library, luxurious linens and towels, a garage to store bicycles or a small car, heated swimming pool, two jacuzzis, workout room, sauna. In your “Welcome Book” we've provided you with our favorite recommendations and a lots of information on the Monterey Peninsula, certain to make your time here the best vacation you've ever had.

Sanctuary in the Dunes is located in the Ocean Harbor House complex on Del Monte Beach in Monterey. Within 5 minutes by car, you're at Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf, great restaurants, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, downtown Monterey, shops and nightlife that includes live music. Travel Highway 1 to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove -- all only 10 minutes away. Highway 1 is also the route to Big Sur -- just 45 minutes away and one of the most scenic drives in the world.

If you're in the mood to walk, follow the nearby footpath nearby called the Regional Beach Trail that connects the entire Monterey Peninsula, over 15 miles from Pacific Grove to the Marina. If you ever had the slightest desire to take a 10+mile walk this would be the one.

When you need a place to get away from it all…yet be close to everything…Sanctuary in the Dunes - Monterey awaits you.

RECENT CHANGE: HOA is prohibiting use of wood burning fireplaces in all units - owner is soon to replace wood burning unit with a new electric fireplace!

Reviewer Comments:

Our santuary space was truly a santuary. We woke every morning to watch the dolphins playing in the ocean and catching their breakfast. We were so close to the ocean we could hear the rhythm of the waves breaking on the shore. Beautiful panaramic view of the bay. The condo is beautifully decorated, cozy and comfortable funrishings. The kitchen is equiped with everything you need to accomodate meal preparation. The condo is so close to the Aquarium and Fisherman's Warf, you can walk there everyday to shop, have lunch and just play! Close to Carmel and San Francisco for day trips as well.

Sea view with amazing dunes and incredible beach access.

This rental was lovely, the location was excellent and so convenient to everything Monterey. The unit itself was well appointed. The all white furniture and decor was a little daunting to keep clean but I enjoyed the elegance. April the property manager was especially kind and thoughtful. I miss waking to the sound of the sea out my window.

Great Condo - Great Location - Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Anne and the gang went out of the way to accommodate us for our anniversary. The condo had all the amenities needed and more. We were a little intimidated with the white carpet. This home has a very romantic night view with all the twinkling lights of the surroundings. And what can I say about the location but - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION. The only thing negative was the outside deck was not completed for our stay. But Anne and the gang made up for it by offering another house or a free stay. We opted for the free stay and hope that we may return to this area again someday.

Wonderful, comfortable, and quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from the unit is just what is shown above. It faces away from other buildings, lending to the sense of privacy. The unit is nicely decorated, clean, comfortable, and very quiet. All amenities are provided. We enjoyed the many nearby walks by the shore. The complex is outside of the heavily trafficked areas of Monterey, but only a few minutes from downtown and tourist attractions. Anyone who enjoys visiting California's Central Coast would enjoy staying here.
