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.

First, Lisa and John are great hosts! John jumped in and got the TV system repaired immediately. Kudo's to John.

The house is better than the pictures. Fresh paint and several new kitchen appliances. Fabulous beds and comfy couches made it for one of the best stays we have had at the Dunes in 15 years.

Hands down this house has the best white water views you will find. Just mesmerizing. And for a bonus we saw many whales. Thanks Lisa and John for your hospitality and kindness.

Views of Ocean from unit are AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this updated unit with absolutely amazing views of the ocean. This is my second stay at Monterey Dunes and I liked this unit the best due to its beach access (a stones throw away), awesome ocean views from living space and master bedroom, private deck with walk out to path access to ocean with a great sea breeze, comfortable leather sofas in a cozy set up to look out at ocean, lovely updated bathrooms, large convenient dining table and all in a setting of natural coastal beauty.

Residential beachside experience

  • 5 of 5

So much better than a typical resort, Monterey Dunes offers a home on the beach in full view of the Pacific from Santa Cruz to the Monterey Peninsula.

It's a getaway from it all without having to travel so far away.

Can't wait to get back!
