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 Castroville

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 location for family wanting time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here so much that we looked up real estate in the Colony. Dare to dream! It is private, peaceful, and offers direct access to the beach which our whole family enjoyed. The home had plenty of sand toys for digging and building sand castles. We enjoyed having the ability to put the kids to bed and still socialize as adults (something a traditional hotel can't safely accommodate). The home was clean and had all of the amenities we could need. Some rooms smelled damp, but that may just be par for the course being so close to the ocean. We were a quick 20-30 minutes from Monterey's Cannery Row and downtown Carmel, respectively (a small price to pay for direct, private beach access). We all enjoyed our stay, and I would absolutely book this property again and have already recommended it to friends.

We had an amazing time here!!! Everything is as good if not better than shown. Beds were SUPER comfy Linens were awesome! Violet answered and helped me with every question we had. Beautiful views .

We felt like we had the whole ocean to ourselves out there. So quiet and serene! We had 5 ladies celebrating our 50th birthdays and we could not have asked for a better location.We had to book the last minute and it was not a problem! Thank you Violet we really enjoyed our special time together. We would come back again for sure!

Great place to stay for a great location!

  • 4 of 5

The home was very clean and perfectly located. Communiction with the owner was very easy and we had no issue with the home at all. Although the internet speed could be faster but we were on the beach - so it wasn't an issue for us.

Location, Location, Location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The place is in a great location - easy to get to and easy to get to Santa Cruz and Monterrey Bay for day trips. Just steps from the beach and amazing sunsets. Would have preferred it to be a bit cleaner. Carpets and runners are stained and it looked as it hadn't been dusted in a while. Nothing a good cleaning can't take care of. Overall we had a great time.
