Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

We can Not Say enough about the property! The Oceanview and privacy was just what we were looking for, for our 25th Ann. The out door shower, Jacuzzi even the bed was comfortable and Amazing! Sleeping under the stars under the glass ceiling in the penthouse, able to see the stats in the middle of the night was a wonderful treat! The hospitality of danishes P&J sandwiches by the host and hostess was such a nice surprise. We Really appreciated that. Celebrated our 25th anniversary there and absolutely loved it to the point that we scheduled another appointment in two weeks hopefully they’ll be sun shine this time🤞?, but even in the rain we enjoyed every atmosphere that was provided. The hospitality was so nice that I recommend it to anyone and everyone! It is in delight and a treat for sure!

Million $$ views

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Tue and were warmly greeted by Jeanell. The home is in a very quiet and private area. We went up to the Penthouse and we were very pleased with the room, the patio and amenities.

Jeanell has put lots of thought into all that might be needed to settle in and not leave for a few days! The hot tub was incredible and with the view all we needed to unwind. The round bed on the patio was very inviting and perfect for lounging day or all night.

There is plenty to do locally and we wandered out the first few days but finally started cutting our wandering time so we could get back to the Penthouse. We perpared all but 1 dinner on the patio during our 4 night stay. A must do is the outdoor shower, in my opinion this is the most refresing and incredible experience to shower outside as you watch the ocean waves. (An indoor shower is available if you prefer).

We cannot wait to get back to this little Gem.

Amazing View! Perfect romantic weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not lie, this place really does have pretty much the most amazing view of the Monterey bay that you could imagine. The owners have really anticipated any potential need - there are snacks, coffee, towels, movies, a stereo, etc. The hot tub was amazing considering it was a bit chilly out. We didn't see the owner or anyone else the whole time we were there, so it was really like we had the whole place to ourselves. I definitely hope to return in the near future!

Beautiful and relaxing

This is a great place to stay and relax. The view is spectacular, and the wind and the waves make it magical. I would highly recommend it, and have no doubt I will be wanting to stay again.

To Die For

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, this was the most AMAZING place I think I have ever stayed... and I have been using Airbnb for years (this was my first experience on HomeAway). Jeanell was an awesome host, very accommodating and communicative. And the space itself... pictures cannot do it justice. Incredible views of the sunrise and sunset, such a clear night sky we could see the Milky Way, we saw seals, and even a spontaneous firework show! :) Our trip could not have been any better... unless we would have had time to stay another day. Thank you SO much Jeanell, and I would love to come back one day!

Best Wishes,

The State Park surrounds the property. Quiet street, yet within a mile of stores. Lots of wildlife, birds, dolphins, whales (just saw one). Great for the beach, walking, bike riding, hiking, shopping, relaxing. Unsurpassed, unimpeded panoramic, ocean, bay, cement ship & whitewater views! Your very own top of the line Hot Springs hot tub and patio three stories high. This is one of the most breathtaking Pacific Ocean views in Northern California. You will feel like you are on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, yet you are a short stroll to the steps that will lead you down to Seascape beach and the cement boat at the end of the pier.
