Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Violet

We did not do hot tub or pool--but everyone (but me) went in the ocean! We had a fabulous time and will be very sad to leave in the morning. The crib was

perfect--thank you for arranging that.

Be well,



Susan

I love to take long walks and spend time with nature without much interruptions. Monterey Dunes Colony Sand Beach is the perfect place to just do that. I love to leave lots of footprints in the sand and pick shells and sand dollars. I believe that great things should be shared to make it even greater. Come with me, your private paradise is awaiting your arrival!

Violet purchased this house in 2013

I holidayed in this area years back with family and realized how precious and wonderful I felt. I decided that if I had the opportunity, I would like my immediate family to experience this best kept secret in Silicon Valley. Not only did I want my family to share, but also others. It I so great to have travelers express how wonderful and fortunate to experience this gorgeous beautiful oasis.

1. I can hear the ocean crashing from the kitchen, from the living room and from the upstairs bedroom.

2. The appeal of all three places is LOCATION LOCATION and LOCATION. I can’t believe it is so close to silicon valley and the place is so exclusive, secluded and tranquil.

3. Unit is great size for multiple families

4. Very friend for young kids due to gate.

5. Natural setting and privacy…when you are inside the property, you do not see neighbors at all.

Extremely disappointed in the condition of this unit.

  • 2 of 5
I have read the other reviews and I must admit I'm extremely baffled. I feel like we stayed in different places. The sound of the waves and the weather was gorgeous. Not one fogged in day which we were actually expecting but were hoping for the very best. We ended up with sunshine every single day and we couldn't have asked for more.

What you need to know is this townhouse is in dire need of updating and repairs. The carpets were terribly soiled, couch soiled, better cleaning job(Glass bowl on the dining room that was supposed to be a center piece was covered in food and greasy fingerprints, I removed it from the table, toilet seats not secured(they slid around when you sat down), windows were covered in bird poop so what view there was, you get the picture, towel rack fell off of the wall, missing light bulbs throughout the house, stopper in one of the bathroom sinks was missing completely, coffee table missing tiles, no instructions on how to use the televisions(never was able to figure it out and I read the manuals cover to cover) not familiar with Direct TV or Roku, old leather chair with terrible rust at base of the foot stool, no sports equipment supplied which I was told by the club house the owner is responsible for supplying the basketball, bocceball, volleyball, No beach towels, code at the entry NEVER worked(we had to wait for people to come out) and then they would buzz us in, and the list goes on and on.

I am not one that has great expectations when I stay in a place. I grew up on the beach in Florida so I know what salty air can do to property. I am not talking about the exterior of this unit. I'm saying that the unit was not clean and it was also in dire need of repairs. This was a difficult review for me to write but I really feel like renter's have the right to know what they're renting when the pictures that are posted are not accurate.

I do not have young children maybe that's why the condition of the unit was not acceptable to me. My sons were only able to stay a couple of nights. My 87 year old terminally ill mother was also with me. This was going to be her last "hurrah" at the Monterey Dunes Colony. She introduced us to the colony when I was 13 years old and I'm now 59 years old.

If you're reading this then take it for what it's worth. The rate that's being charged isn't any deal considering the shape it is in. The owner is aware of everything I've written, I sent her a list myself. I hope she takes this to heart.

Owner's Response: Dear Muriel,
Thank you again for your feedback. My team of workers went to the property last weekend and cleaned all the walls, couches, and doors, replaced all the bulbs, bathroom towel rack, and stopper. Washed windows - birds love hanging around. We also replaced the brown leather chair with brightly colored comfy reclining chair. Replaced the glass coffee table with wooden coffee table. See the new pictures of the living room on: www.vrbo.com/491874. I trust that my renters will post their experiences of my property, customer service and all the improvement made. Thanks again for your feedback. Violet

solid rental

  • 4 of 5
We were two couples with 3 young (under 2) kids who stayed here for a weekend. Overall, we were very happy with our experience. The rental is nicer than the photos, and the open layout of the kitchen, dining, and living area (combined with the spectacular view to the dunes) was fantastic. We were also pleased that, without us even asking, they left out great kids stuff (not sure if they do for everyone) like beach toys, a crib, a high chair, etc. That was great.

Comments to clarify the nature of the property:
- The description says the bedrooms have king beds. They do not. They are queen-sized beds in each room.

- It would be nice if there was a table on the deck facing the dunes, so that you could eat outside. As is, there are three lounge chairs (not really good for eating) and a bench. That said, the dining table inside has a great view through the huge window.

- This is one of a series of townhouse-style condos along the beach. There is a path that goes right in front of the large window of the condo that is the access path to the beach for the group of townhouses (maybe 3-4?), so people do occasionally walk on that path right outside your window. It didn't bother us though, as it feels very private otherwise. The front patio area is also contained by a large fence. We BBQed there, but ate inside because it was kind of bleak out front. The gate was nice with kids, though, because we didn't have to worry about them wandering into the parking lot.

- On Sunday, we each had trouble with the development entry gate on multiple occasions. The other days there was a gate attendant, but on Sunday there was no attendant and the 3 digit code given did not work. The four digit back up code simply rang another unit, and that person buzzed us in, but they clearly were not planning to serve that function. Another time that day, we entered behind a person who also had trouble with the code, so clearly this is a property-wide issue.

We saw a lot of aquatic life on the beach in just a little time there -- otters, dolphins, turtles. It was fantastic! And the beach itself is very quiet and was virtually empty when we went!

Fabulous location

  • 4 of 5
If your looking to stay near Monterey then this is a great place. House was presented well in photos. Update on the coffee table, the glass table is gone and replaced with something a little better. Not as dangerous at least. Plenty of room in the house for 5 or 6. Bathrooms were plenty big enough. As well as the kitchen. Spent most of my time on the back deck basking in the sun. This is Monterey and it tends to be foggy. All appliances, washer and dryer, dishwasher etc worked fine. The internet was a little tricky at first but I called Violet and they helped us out. The TV only gets a few channels so bring a couple of DVDs or just use your phone or laptop to get your shows. Kitchen was well stocked but you do need to bring all spices, coffee, sugar, ice etc. Thought they could use a few updated kitchen utensils. But I guess it is a rental and don't want to put anything valuable in there. We like to cook when we get a rental, but not everyone will. Location was great, right on the beach. If you need a store you can go to Castroville but if you need a real store you drive south on Hwy 1 to Seaside. Only about 10 min. We went there and bought a few movies. Also only a 30 min drive to all the Monterey tourist stuff. For food, drive to Moss Landing, about 2 min drive North on Hwy 1. Eat at Phils Fish Market for some good grub. Thought the price was a little on the high side, but once you add in all the people to share the house and also the use of the club house, its well worth it.

Fantastic Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5
We had great times during our family stay which incldued 7 of us. A family of 4 with 3 grandparents. The rental was as it was described in the listing and we are grateful for the honesty. The location was awesome being right at the dunes and ocean and we found peace in the sounds of the sea. The kids also enjoyed the use of the pool, hot tub and courts. Note they are not located right near this unit so we just hoped in the car. You can access by bike too or walk if your group likes a little jaunt. Violet was a gracious hostess which made for pleasant transactions. There was a bit of confusion with the rental reservation and she handled the matter with professionalism which we appreciate. We recommend this unit for anyone and hope one day to return ourselves. Many thanks and blessing!

Wonderful, beach front condo! Ideally situated, private, and steps to beach.

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed in January and loved being right on the beach. The walls of windows let us see the sunset and sitting on the deck, hearing the waves was perfect. The house was very comfortable for sleeping and hanging out. The fire place was very nice to have access to. The glass table (in photo) was problematic -- it was not stable and made me very nervous to have there with children. It does not make sense to have in a rental property -- much too dangerous. Also, the kitchen was hard to work in. The description said to bring your own spices -- which was true, but there was no oil, salt, sugar, etc. It's understandable not to keep these stocked, but just having "spices" listed as not being there did not prepare us for the absence of everything. Make note that visitors should include these as well. The owner/caretaker was very responsive and easy to reach. She was wonderful!
