Overview

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.

Perfect family vacations at the Ocean - as close as you can get

  • 5 of 5

Just one more thing to add to the many positive reviews below: Our whole family enjoyed hours spotting birds and watching whales ("Thar she blows!") - you might like to bring BINOCULARS and cameras with zoom / tele-lenses.

Many thanks to John and Lisa for setting up this wonderful home and the many helpful hints - we found our way easily and spent three relaxing days at the beach.

Warm greetings from Berlin, Germany.

Peaceful and great time to refresh with our family!

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing and we loved walking along the beach watching the waves crash! I had forgotten how much I've missed the ocean until we walked in the front door!

John and Lisa were quick to answer questions when we first arrived and helped us get settled in. The condo was well furnished, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the bedrooms were the perfect size for our family of 5. The kids had fun playing the video games and so did my husband!

My only regret is that we booked our trip last minute and could only stay for a few nights. Next time we will plan further out so we can stay longer! We look forward to coming back!

Seclusion, tranquility and sounds of the sea.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is completely secluded from the city. It was amazing to be in the midst of the action then to drive 10 minutes to be alone with your family with no distractions but a beautiful, spacious condo oceanfront.

It has all the necessities in the kitchen to do basic breakfasts. There was coffee and cream to get you through your first morning. The beds, linens and towels were comfortable. The views are spectacular. We were able to see humpback whales directly from the living room windows.

We did not use any amenities of the complex because we were so relaxed in the house.

Wonderful Family Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beach condo in July 2017 with 5 adults and 2 children. Impressed with how close to the beach it was with a private short walk way from the back deck down to the sand. Hardly anyone around and felt like your own private beach. Sand was soft and beach was clean. The unit was clean and spacious. Definitely enjoyed the direct views of the beach from the huge floor to ceiling living room windows and upstairs master bedroom. The private front courtyard was great for grilling and kids got to run around in a secure space. The private Monterey Dunes community was great. Took advantage of the heated pool and spa at the clubhouse each day and found buckets full of whole sand dollars and shells on our morning beach walks. Owner was very accommodating in answering our questions before and during our stay. Already thinking of getting the family together for a return trip next year. If you're looking for an ocean front beach getaway, you won't be disappointed with this one!!

Peaceful and a lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having had 15 years of annual family vacation at the Monterey Dunes, we wondered what it would be like to start making new memories at Lisa & John's place. We all enjoyed staying at this peaceful and a comfortable place. The view from the Master bedroom is amazing. Our email communication with Lisa was always prompt and delightful . We hope to go back to their place and make more memories next year.

T.Y.B.
