With only powdery sand dunes between you and the ocean, you’ll start relaxing the moment you step into this luxurious 2,000+ sq. ft. beachfront Mediterranean. The sounds of the surf will dissolve your cares by day and lull you to sleep at night…and wait till you see the views: on a clear day you can see the entire curve of Monterey Bay, from Moss Landing to Santa Cruz.

From the arched entry to the alabaster scones, no detail has been overlooked. The living room has a bar and comfortable seating around a gas fireplace with 55″ Smart TV above (not shown). Radiant heated, sand-colored stone floors are warm underfoot, the Mission-style furniture includes a hammered copper table that seats 8, and the custom inlaid mural in the kitchen depicting early Monterey is a spectacular piece of “art history.”

The kitchen has everything a gourmet could ask for, from a professional mixer to a coffee frother for your morning latte: granite countertops with a cream-colored travertine backsplash, burled walnut cabinetry, Viking appliances (including a four-burner gas range)—there’s even a wine cooler in the adjoining garage and whole-house water filtration.

Wall-to-wall glass (with motorized blinds) frames the ever-changing sea views in the master suite (with a King bed and a wall-mounted TV). The en suite bath features an oval Jacuzzi tub, a walk-in steam shower, two vanities topped with black glass, subway-tiled walls inlaid with iridescent stone, a separate toilet compartment, and a large closet. Three guest rooms—two with Queens and one with a twin daybed—share a second bath with a pedestal sink and a shower lined in lustrous marble.

From the sunny protected patio to the fire pit for relaxing under the stars, the living is definitely easy in this brand new beach house. Pick up fresh seafood to barbecue at Fisherman’s Wharf—or just pick up the binoculars and check out the sea life from your living room. Until it’s time for another spectacular sunset, that is.


Ocean Spray

Here’s a recipe for vacation perfection: panoramic ocean views, luxurious finishes and furnishings…
and nothing but sand dunes between you and the beach.

2400 sq. ft. | 4 Bedroom | 2 Bath | Sleeps 8


From the moment you open the door, this is a home that elicits oohs and aahs. Inside the light-filled great room, walls of glass frame ever-changing sea views, while high ceilings and cream-colored stone floors create a feeling of spaciousness and warmth. In the kitchen, lustrous granite countertops in silver, copper and jade accent the cherry cabinetry and stainless GE Monogram appliances (built-in convection oven, microwave and warming drawer, side-by-side refrigerator, and a six-burner professional gas cooktop with griddle).

The dining room seats 8, the living room has an instant gas fireplace, a large flat screen TV, and sliding doors that lead to front and side decks (barbecue, bistro table for four, two additional seating areas, and a stand heater for chilly nights).

There are four bedrooms upstairs (twin trundle, two Queens, one King). The master suite has views of the ocean and a private bath with a jetted tub and walk-in shower. Three other bedrooms share a hall bath with a shower lined in travertine, and there’s a laundry area with a front loading washer and dryer.

A central staircase leads to the double garage and a playroom stocked with toys, a TV, a dollhouse, and a trundle bed for extra sleeping. Other features include crown molding, honeycomb Duet shades, eight televisions, a double garage, and a home security system.

Let the sounds of the surf lull you to sleep at night… and wait till you see the views: on a clear day you can see the entire curve of Monterey Bay, all the way to Santa Cruz.

What the locals know – where to eat!

Where to eat on Friday night after a long workweek?  Yeah, even working in the Monterey Bay seems long sometimes!  But we are not without dining choices, certainly.  We decided on an unlikely spot – the Best Western Beach Resort Monterey hotel on Del Monte Beach.  One would not suspect that this would be a place for anything but a tourist-trap type restaurant – not so!  The menu is varied, including a couple of vegetarian choices, and the food was fresh and well-prepared.

Because of the large number of people on the Monterey Peninsula for the weekend, we elected to eat early to avoid the crowds.  That also turned out to be a good move in that we were seated at a window table, where we enjoyed the spectacular view of the beach and the waves crashing to the shore of the Monterey Bay.  While we waited for our entree to arrive, we watched an otter frolicking in the surf, also having his dinner.

The service was good, the food was good and affordable, and the view was wonderful.  By the way, don’t be deterred by the gated parking area.  Take a ticket and ask the waiter to validate it for you!

Monterey Cookhouse a hit with locals!

The Monterey Cookhouse, on North Fremont Boulevard in Monterey, is a hit with the crew at Monterey Bay Property Management.  “Great food at reasonable prices, said Managing Broker, Jan Leasure, about the Monterey Cookhouse experience.  The casual dining-type restaurant offers a varied menu and service customized to the diner’s dietary preferences.  While the chef routinely prepares the grilled salmon on the rare side, he had no problem accommodating a diner who requested that it be well-done; the well-done salmon arrived moist and delicious.  A vegan diner in the party who wanted a pizza was not only accommodated, but delighted with a wonderful vegan pizza creation that clearly demonstrated the chef’s creativity.  The Monterey Cookhouse is a restaurant that should not be missed by those visiting the Monterey Peninsula!

Beautiful Central California Coast

No tsunami on the California Central Coast this weekend, and the Monterey Bay is as beautiful as ever!  A drive that started at Lover’s Point in Pacific Grove, meandered through Pebble Beach, and wound up in Carmel yielded some of the most spectacular scenery ever!  Pebble Beach coastlineWhile the rain threatened but never materialized, the sun fought to break through, eventually putting in an appearance that reminded those of us lucky enough to be here today just how fortunate we are!  What a beautiful place!
