About Patricia Puterbaugh

Our house is family owned - 3 generations have grown up here completely blessed by the privilege of vacationing at this very special place!

Patricia Puterbaugh purchased this condo in 1975

Why Patricia Puterbaugh chose California

This property is very unique as the beach and complex are very secluded. The beach is lightly used and offers walking, birdwatching, whale watching, surf fishing and much more without putting on shoes. On the other hand you can explore the area to the east, north and south for more adventure and endless activities

A Well-Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

Monterey Dunes Colony is a well-kept secret. It has the amenities of a wonderful resort but without a front desk, social director, and concierge. It is beautifully maintained, peaceful, and private.

This particular unit is spacious, clean, and lovely. Little extras like the spices in the kitchen, tennis racquets, two bikes, kites, basketball, volleyball, sand pails, games, toys, videos, etc. made us feel at home as soon as we entered. The location is perfect--a few steps to the beach and a few steps to the pool. The pictures are accurate but don't depict the large dining room table, the large functional kitchen with modern appliances, or the beautiful sports area.

There are many places to explore beyond this community but one could be very satisfied just enjoying the sand, water, and extensive recreational complex.

The owner was very helpful and answered our many questions. I was concerned because only an email address was given and not a phone number on the VRBO website but she did give us her phone number and she was accessible when we needed her. I would have felt more comfortable with PayPal rather than a check. Although this home has been in the family for a long time, they are new to renting and she said that she just hadn't gotten around to setting up an account with PayPal yet. We found her to be very honest and she took our concerns seriously. Note that cell phone coverage is spotty but there is a house phone for incoming calls.

By the way, we loved the discount fruit and vegetable stand near the Whole Enchilada Market just north of Molera Road on Route 1. Visits to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk area and the Monterey Aquarium were highlights of our visit.

We would definitely return!

Our home is located on a secluded beach in the middle of Monterey bay near the eclectic town of Moss Landing. The condo Complex has private swimming pool, large hot tub, tennis, bocci court, basketball court, sand and hard surface volleyball and net driving range. Biking, hiking, wine tasting, fishing, kayaking and bird watching are popular activities. We are south of the boardwalk amusement park at Santa Cruz and north of the Monterey aquarium and and beautiful town and coast of Carmel. Pinnacles National Monument, Point Lobos State Reserve, The Big Sur coast and the historic missions of Carmel, Monterey, San Juan Bautista, and Santa Cruz are within easy driving distance. Award winning wine tasting is available North, South and East of our home in the small valleys around Salinas and Santa Cruz mountains. Bike trails are never ending and the Monterey Bay/Elk Horn Slough is a very important birding destination. Kayaking and hiking are very popular in the area. A hike in the famous redwoods is a 30' drive maximum. The Monterey Bay area is famous for great food. Fresh seafood is abundant year round as are fresh vegetables and fruits. The top restaurant list goes on and on. Come! You won't be disappointed!
