Here are two precious poems by twin 9 year old girls while staying at Dolphinwatch -
Listen, by Paris B
Bolting, crashing, smashing, dipping, coming in and coming out, it pauses and starts again, like fireworks and granades, you can hear it roar, it's trying to tell you something but you aren't listening, the ocean is calling to you . . .
Ocean Blue, by Olivia B
light blue horizon can touch the gentle waves crashing on the shore will make it go astray touching every creature moving in its path better not get too close or it will go crash
Ocean Blue bright as dew birds skimming and looking for fish, fish jumping, seals swimming, all in its path
guest book comment 06/06: every time I looked out over the fabulous view from my place on the chaise, or relaxed on blankets on each bed, or watched my sister floating happily in the hot tub, I kept hearing Humphrey Bogart's voice echoing in my head, saying wistfully 'the stuff that dreams are made of.' And he was right this place seems to have materialized out of a dream . . .

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. They are, of course, often at this magnificent property which is why it is often not available. We hope you enjoy this special paradise as much as they do. Thank you for your interest.

The house was spacious and comfortable and cozy.
Disappointed that we couldn’t get local programming on TV. Thank goodness there was Netflix and Hulu tv.
The ultimate Monterey Bay experience
A unique property offering a combination of seclusion-a coastal forrest
and unmatched views of the Monterey Bay--Completely isolated but close to everything.
A perfect weekend get away
and perfect hosts as well. Thank you for allowing us to stay. Jeff
Amazing house in an amazing location!
This is an amazing property. House decor and location are stunning. We spent most of our time in the back enjoying the fire pit, jacuzzi, and awesome view. Kitchen is fully equipt with everything you might need. Master bedroom and bath are very nicely decorated and the linens were soft and luxurious. Only complaints were that the ice maker didn't seem to be producing ice and the BBQ looked like it could use a little TLC. Also, we had to walk quite a ways through the state beach campsite to access the beach, as the closer entrance was closed for repair. We will definitely be back.
Perfect place for get away
We had a great weekend , 7 moms get away.

Beautiful home with gorgeous views. Would definitely stay again.
Wonderful, Well Appointed Home
Dolphinwatch was perfect for our family. The home is beautiful and very well appointed and comfortable. We are cooks and found every tool we needed. We especially enjoyed using the large Wolf stove. It was a treat to be able to sit out on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view. The house and upper patio were completely accessible for my husband's mobility scooter. Pam, the owner, was very accommodating and welcoming. Thank you, Pam and Bruce, for renting our home to us. We had a lovely time.
LIMITED AVAILABILITY house is currently on the market so there is very limited availability. WEEKENDS ONLY SUMMER 2017, may change at any time.
