About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Welcome to your home away from home with an ocean view! Ours is a 3-bedroom, 3 full bathroom, two story, ocean front condo located on the dunes, just steps down the path to your own private beach! Enjoy sunsets, sea life and white water surf from the family room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom.

We have worked hard to make this property a comforting welcome to the beach with all the technical convenience you may desire. From the moment you arrive, you do not have to worry about keys. The digital front door lock allows everyone in your party, and only those in your party, access to the house without the need for a key.

New as of March 2016, two of our bathrooms have been remodeled from the absolute ground up. No expense was spared to bring modern touches to our seaside retreat, including natural stone and Italian porcelain tile, an in-wall toilet, rain shower head and barn door entry.

Each bedroom invites you to relax on a new memory foam mattress. The living room and all bedrooms feature a flat screen TV with satellite service, a DVD player and streaming media player, including access to Netflix, Pandora, HULU, Amazon Prime Video and other popular services. The downstairs bedroom sports a unique surprise for the kids and kids-at-heart with a cocktail-style arcade cabinet, featuring Pac-Man and 59 other digital distractions you might remember from the dawn of the video game era. The fully stocked kitchen provides you with the essentials you need to get any meal on the table. The courtyard offers seating and a grill for barbecuing. WiFi and 5G networks available!

About John & Lisa England

This beach property has been in our family for over 15 years. As kids, we remember taking family vacations to Monterrey Dunes Colony and always enjoying spending time together in the sweet sanctuary of the private beach, a beach that is so private, it often feels as if it is your very own.

We made memories on the sands of this beach, watching dolphins, otters and even whales swim by! We collected sea shells and sand dollars and ran excitedly into the house for hot chocolate when we realized it was more than our pant cuffs that got wet from our shore walks, shell collecting and foot-wading adventures.

Now that we have this property, we feel grateful to be able to share it with others who will undoubtedly make special memories here. Every time we arrive and smell the ocean air, look out over the surf to the horizon at the amazing sunsets, and then up to the clear cut moon and dark diamond studded sky, we feel so grateful to have this magical place to share. We invite you to find magic here too.

Beautiful home with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautifully renovated! Everything we needed was there. The View was stunning! Our only wish was that there was a gas barbecue available as we are avid barbecuers. They did provide a charcoal grill but we ended up baking our food instead.

Love the house it was very clean.

  • 5 of 5

It was a special weekend as it was our 25th wedding anniversary and this place made it a perfect weekend. The views we're spectacular although the winds we're a little strong that weekend but was still relaxing and enjoyable.

Wonderful beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loved our stay at the Ocean Front Beach House! The views of the dunes and ocean are spectacular and the ocean is a short walk away. Our family loved playing the PacMan games! The house is nicely updated and decorated and we felt very at home. The owners were easy to communicate with and answered our questions kindly and quickly. We used the swimming pool, hot tub and basketball courts... great options for a family! We loved walking along the beach, enjoying the sights of Monterey, driving the Big Sur coastline, Carmel by the Sea, whale watching, and Point Lobos Natural Reserve. Of the 4 places we stayed during our vacation, everyone in our family said that this is the place they wish they could have stayed longer... thanks for an enjoyable and memorable stay!

Wonderful Accomodations but weather was windy and cold.

  • 4 of 5

Stunning views from MBR and LR/DR/Kitchen. We watched whales blow and breach as we were watching TV - Crazy!! Great outdoor area too with heated pool, spa, bocce ball and tennis courts. Equipment is in condo. We were surprised and very happy to find a high chair and gate for toddler grandson. Bring your jackets - even in the summer. Beautiful spot and accommodations.

Private Beach Retreat to relax & unwind in solitude

  • 4 of 5

Each year, my family chooses a beautiful vacation home to spend a week in. This year, we searched Monterey area beach rentals and found this condo in Monterey Dunes Colony in Castroville. Initially, we were taken aback at the remote location, as the miles leading to the condo are mostly fields of artichokes & strawberries. But after parking and walking up towards the door, the beautiful setting of pristine dunes and protected vegetation that led to what seemed to be the whole ocean to ourselves, quickly reassured us. (Also, the heart of Monterey/Cannery Row was only a 20 minute drive.) The interior was clean and met our needs, but it is the views from the living room and master that were amazing and incredible. Very peaceful. We only saw one other person aside from the security person at the entrance to the condos.

John was very prompt and courteous when any questions arose during our stay. I stopped short of leaving 5 stars only because the interior was not as immaculate as what we've had in previous rentals, but felt the views and seclusion on the beautiful, clean beach still gave the property a feeling of luxury. The pool and hot tub at the clubhouse were clean and very private as well.

We were fortunate enough to see dolphin activity from the living room and our experience at this condo will be a lasting memory for our family. A wonderful activity we did was a 1 hour drive north, to Henry Cowell Redwood Forest. Stunning!! California is such a beautiful part of our country.

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

Super clean, well furnished, & great views. My husband said to take one star off because the wi-fi either was slow or would occasionally disconnect (& he had to get some work done on his laptop). Also the game console wasn't working (which wasn't an issue for us since we had no kids with us, but mentioning in case people are wanting to use that). Overall great place!! :)
