About Violet

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

Why Violet chose California

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 to share with my family, but also with others. It is so great to have travelers express how wonderful and fortunate to experience this gorgeous beautiful oasis. It is my family and my pleasure. Come , experience and share. After all, what is life, if you don't share.

What makes this house unique

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

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 friendly for young kids due to gated community and patio.

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

6. Don't take my word for it, come see yourself, just like I did more than 20 years ago.

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,

Perfect stay by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really nice time there. The property was situated by the beach (literally, 30 seconds walking). Everything in the home was in working order and clean. They arranged for a crib for our 5 month infant without us asking for it (thanks!). Towels, linens, dishes, etc. everything was nice. I don't know what else to say: we will definitely consider to come back some time in the future.

Fantastic holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

As always it was an outstanding trip. The house was clean, inviting, and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the tools we needed for a holiday meal. Being able to enjoy an empty beach was great for the kids. Truly the best tradition hat our family has, is going here for Thanksgiving.

A beautiful and relaxing place that offers an amazing view of the beach as you dine. Literally less than a 2 minute walk over the dunes to sit on the beach and watch a spectacular sunset. Clean home with a nice kitchen.

Perfect time in Monterey Dunes

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying in Violet's Monterey Dunes properties. This condo was perfect for our family. We loved this very special part of the world. Although we are California natives, we must say there are very few beaches as special as Monterey Dunes. The nature (dolphins, whales, shorebirds etc) make the morning walks truly special. Violet's condo is well-equipped, comfortable and Violet is always responsive to our requests. We hope to visit this beautiful setting again and again. Thank you Violet.

Great location! The dunes outside the home had lots of wildlife and we had a front row seat. The kids loved it!
