Escape to the Serenity of Your Monterey Beach House

Monterey is located just south of the San Francisco metropolitan area, providing you with a convenient place to relax and unwind close to the culture and sophistication of the big city. When you choose to make the short trip from San Francisco to Monterey, you can select a Monterey beach house as your home away from home. Your Monterey beach house is loaded with comfortable amenities that may include everything from a private garage and a fenced yard to a deck with beach views, a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, separate living and dining areas and more. You will have everything you need to feel right at home in Monterey when you stay in a vacation rental.

Outdoor Recreation

From your Central California vacation home, you will be close to some of the most pristine beaches in the state, and you may want to spend some time on your vacation close to the water. These beach spots include Monterey State Beach, San Carlos Beach Park, Del Monte Beach with its boardwalk, Jack's Peak Park and others. Some of these are popular for sunbathing, surfing, tide pooling, hiking, sightseeing, picnicking and more. There are also other popular beach spots located a short distance away in nearby cities and towns.

Shopping

If you love to shop, you will want to include ample time in your vacation schedule to explore some of the great shops in the Monterey area. From your beautiful Santa Barbara vacation home, you may be close to some of the popular shopping destinations in Monterey and surrounding communities like the Del Monte Shopping Center, the Cannery Row Antique Mall, the Lighthouse Avenue and Tyler Street shops and more. The Del Monte Shopping Center is the largest in the area, and it is home to dozens of brand name stores that you know and love.

Dining

Dining out is a true treat when you vacation in Monterey, and this is because there are an extensive range of delicious restaurants that include everything from casual to fine dining. There are a wide range of ethnic culinary options represented in this small town. Some of the many dining options to choose from include Old Fisherman's Grotto, Monterey's Fish House, Montrio Bistro, Cibo Ristorante Italiano, Hula's Island Grill, Restaurant 1833, Sea Harvest, Lallapalooza Restaurant, Crystal Fish and more.

Weather

The weather in beautiful Monterey can be stunning throughout most of the year, so there is rarely a bad time of the year to visit this charming town on the coast. When you want to know what to pack, you can check the local forecast before you travel, and you can use this information as a guide as well. During the short, mild winter season, you can expect lows in the 40s and the average highs to be in the 50s and 60s. During the mild summer season, the average low rarely drops below 50, and the average high is in the upper 60s. There is little rainfall in this area, and there are more than 305 days each year without rainfall.

How to Get There

San Francisco is the closest major metropolitan area, so it is easiest to reach Monterey when you travel via air, bus, train or your own car into this area. From San Francisco, you can rent a car if necessary and make your way south along Highway 101 into the Monterey area. This is a short, scenic drive, but you can also travel along the coastline on Highway 1 to reach the Monterey area if you want to enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean while you are en route to your vacation destination.

Amazing from start to finish!

5 of 5
My love for this entire experience started well before we even got to the house. We received a terminal diagnosis within the family which pushed us to take a large family getaway. Because of the diagnosis it caused for some difficulty with booking due to the unknowns. The owners of this house were not only understanding they were accommodating to our needs (which is much more than I can say of other rentals). Then we got to the house...and it was perfect. The house was beautiful, huge and completely stocked with everything we would need. The house has stairs so I put up a baby gate for my one year old. For some reason the gate did some minor damage to the paint on the wall and I was mortified. I offered to fix the paint during my stay and was absolutely sick about having damaged someone’s home. The response I get from the owners is not only “no worries!” but also concern for the safety of my child over the damage to their home! I have absolutely zero complaints about our entire week stay and would recommend this house to anyone and everyone with confidence that they would have just as great of an experience. 💚

Perfect Location! Better than advertised!

5 of 5
Great location right on the walking/jogging/biking path and just a short walk (2-3 min) to all the great shops and restaurants of Cannery Row. Home had all the amenities we needed and more. Great yard area to sit and relax. And the beds, not sure I've slept in a more comfortable one. Highly recommend for a family or two couples. You won't be disappointed.
