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,

Monterey Dunes Beachfront - Silicon Valley Best Kept Secret!!
average rating of 4.462963 based on 58 reviews

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.

Just what the beach doctor ordered!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place. As soon as we pulled up to the gate it was like stepping back in time and letting the worries of the world shed away. The Monterey Dunes Colony have a great feel. All kinds of fun stuff to do with the kids. Bocce, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, putt putt, swimming the pool, relaxing in the spa, etc. We didn't take advantage of these this time but definitely will be next time. A reason for a return trip. Bummer :) This trip we used the home as relaxing and launching pad. We enjoyed the chairs on the patio and big sunset watching windows.

Walking in our weekend oasis and seeing the beach out the back windows was awesome! We dropped our stuff, threw our flip flops on and hit the beach. The next day was a full beach day as well. Building a fort/sand castle to fend off the waves :), searching for shells and getting some much needed down time.

Saturday was a quick hop up to Santa Cruz to check out the boardwalk. It was a great trip. Stepping back in time again. I can't wait to be there this summer when they have the new rides open and maybe a concert on the beach. Putt Putt was the coolest! Kids loved it. The pirate themed course what the best one they've ever played on.

You can't do Monterey without doing the Aquarium. That was our Sunday. Some sea life. Checking out he deep see exhibit. Biggest in the world! Otters. Who doesn't love otters. Then Bubba Gump! Common now! Mix in a little shopping and we had a great day.

Movies and games back at the beach house every night. Cooking up some dinners and getting some quality family time in. The home was well equipped with everything we needed for a great stay. Beds were super comfortable. I had the best sleep I've had in months!

One request would be a blue recycle trash can. I didn't do my homework as well as I should have to see that it's not the 1 big bin that we're used to at our house. I caught that half way in. The blue recycle container would be a good reminder to recycle since we don't have to at home.

Violet was great to work with. The booking process was easy. The home was fantastic. Steps to the beach. We will definitely be a repeat customer.

Thank you Violet for helping make memories,

Stunning view of the dunes.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property with a beautiful view. A quick walk through the dunes on the boardwalk takes you to an expansive beach. Seven of us (4 adults and 3 children) used this as a convenient base to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the nearby Monterey Zoo in Salinas.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this townhouse/cottage. It was spacious, impeccably clean, well supplied kitchen and very, very comfortable. The view is superb and the grounds surrounding it are very picturesque. Additionally, the owner really worked with me when I had a scheduling snafu. I highly recommend this unit.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

For two families with three grandkids the dunes are a perfect playground and the three bedroom one level unit worked very well for all of us.
