A 5 Star Place To Rent At Monterey Dunes

  • 5 of 5

The property is true to the pictures online and the views are incredible. We will return as we have nothing but great things to say about Unit 288. We have been coming to Monterey Dunes for 28 years and this Unit is the best we have ever stayed in.

It is so private that we never closed the blinds at night--a first for us.

Peaceful stay at Monterey Dunes condo

  • 4 of 5

We were in Monterey for a family wedding and most activities took place in Monterey or Pebble Beach area. Since we weren't familiar with the area we thought we were staying closer to Monterey. It isn't too far out of town, approximately 30 min. depending on traffic. There were 6 of us, including two littles ones. They loved playing in the sand but unfortunately, the surf cannot be played in so we drove into Monterey for beach activities. The dunes are fascinating and we loved all the plants growing in the sand. We were fortunate to see whales spouting in the distance and a seal surfing in the waves. I wish they had supplied binoculars for a closer look.

We had a problem with payment getting processed in a timely manner and it was a pleasure to work with these owners. The property was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked as well as the bathroom. The condo has plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and toys for the beach. We didn't use the clubhouse area, but it looked very nice. This was a wonderful place to sit back and relax.

Stunning, immaculately clean property in beachside location.

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly one of the best we have ever stayed in. It is spacious, well-equipped and beautifully decorated with up-to-date furnishings, and is in a perfect location with direct access onto a beach. To wake up to views of the sea was wonderfully relaxing, and helped to make our holiday in California extra special. Everything went smoothly, from the initial booking to clear information provided about arrival and checking out instructions. Would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in the Monterey area. Seeing blue whales, humpbacks and fin whales during our stay was the icing on the cake :)

We saw Dolphins swimming past from the house and the beach. It was a peaceful, clean and beautiful house with comfy beds.
