About pam (owner)
The owner's are retired, Bruce - a surgeon and Pam, an RN nurse/100ton USCG master mariner, kiteboarder - bought a beach shack 25 yrs ago. and rebuilt. When we are offshore sailing, kiteboarding or diving we let our special home so others can experience its magic.

My wife and I wanted to retreat from the world for 3 days and recharge and this place is PERFECT for that. Absolutely nothing to complain about. It is heaven there.
Shhhh! Keep this a secret between us.....
Amazing home with the most spectacular views ever!! I don't want anyone else to learn about DolphinWatch or I might not be able to rent it again. Five ladies shared this beautiful well-appointed home on the bluff overlooking Monterey Bay. We couldn't have planned a better getaway. The weather was perfect - warm sunshine with a slight breeze for walking on the beach during the day and blankets for stargazing around the firepit at night. The kitchen was filled with every imaginable appliance and allowed for several people to work together to create our delicious dine-in meals. We enjoyed a movie on the large TV in the family room and spent lots of time on the amazing decks watching for dolphins. We saw some within the first hour of being at the house! Massages, shopping in Capitola and Soquel, enjoying lunch at Gayle's Bakery, dinner at Café Sparrow and Sunday brunch at Sanderlings at the Seascape Resort filled out our very relaxing special retreat. We will definitely return to DolphinWatch!!!!!
Keep this place a secret
Spent almost all our time on patio overlooking the ocean. Every night ended by the fire pit. Beautiful views inside and out, we couldn't stop taking pictures of the ocean and the sunset. Can't believe this place ever has vacancies. No direct beach access but the patio makes you forget about it.
Breathtaking, serene and peaceful retreat
We are so fortunate to live only an hour away from here and yet we felt like we were in Hawaii! Pamela and Bruce have the most amazing home. My kids who prefer being home on most of our trips afar really enjoyed this trip as well as their grandparents. There are loads of great restaurants around but we did not want to leave this compound! If you go you will know what we mean. It's a slice of heaven! Thank you so much for opening your home to the VRBO community! This is a gem. There is one review that had stuck out when I was researching for a getaway, and I completely agree with, you are almost hesitant to share this beauty for fear it will always be booked when you try to come back! Rachel had the house all clean for us and had all the doors open to the oceanfront views. She walked us around and answered any questions we had and made us feel right at home. Pamela and Rachel are both available for any questions. This home has everything and then some!! Can't thank Bruce and Pamela enough!
The views from the house are amazing. Kitchen is very well equipped. Host was exceptional. Washing machine hose sprung a leak and they had someone out that day to get it fixed. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.
An oasis of calm.
The views! The sound of waves on the beach. A feeling of seclusion amongst the action. California casual seamlessly blends with nature. Whale, dolphin and wildlife viewing from the living room and master - be sure to bring binoculars for super close up observation. We didn’t want to leave the home to do anything. We wanted to just “be.” Mission accomplished.
house is currently on the market so there is very limited availability. WEEKENDS ONLY SUMMER 2017, may change at any time.
