Welcome to "Sanctuary in the Dunes"! Sleeps up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children age 12 and under.

Long Term Rates available - ask your Reservation Specialist for more details.

This ocean-side 1-bedroom 1-bath condominium nestles against the sand dunes on Del Monte beach in Monterey. From your living room and wraparound deck, enjoy a panorama of pelicans, otters, dolphins and vast shoreline views wrapping around the bay.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

At night, look to the southwest as the harbor dresses for evening in a million twinkling lights. Then look to the northeast, where your senses are soothed by ocean sounds and saltwater smells. Walking on the beach at dusk will be one of the most memorable experiences of your visit.

This single-story corner unit's closest neighbor is sand and surf. Follow the footpath just outside your door to the beach. You'll find everything you need for a day at the beach: beach chairs, picnic basket, coolers, umbrellas, blankets and towels. Take one of the many books or magazines provided to read while basking in the sun.

Decorated in crisp whites and ocean blues, this 880-square-foot condo epitomizes seashore elegance. The open floor plan features a living area with a plush sofa and chair. An electric fireplace and a dining area and a well-equipped kitchen with full-sized appliances making cooking easy. The china and glassware are worthy of entertaining your most discriminating guests. Whimsical artwork dots the walls with inspired reminders that you are at the beach.

Other amenities include: Unlimited long distance to the 48 contiguous States, WIFI, cable television, 46” HD TV with a DVD library, luxurious linens for the queen size bed, towels, a small, shared garage space for parking a small to medium car, one other uncovered assigned parking space, heated swimming pool, two jacuzzis, workout room, sauna and a washer and dryer.

In your “Welcome Book” we've provided you with our favorite recommendations and a lots of information on the Monterey Peninsula, certain to make your time here the best vacation you've ever had.

Sanctuary in the Dunes is a 900 square feet, end unit condominium located in the Ocean Harbor House complex on Del Monte Beach in Monterey. Within 5 minutes by car, you're at Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf, great restaurants, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, downtown Monterey, shops and nightlife that includes live music. Travel Highway 1 to Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pebble Beach® and Pacific Grove -- all only 15 minutes away. Highway 1 is also the route to Big Sur -- just 45 minutes away and one of the most scenic drives in the world.

If you're in the mood to walk, follow the nearby footpath nearby called the Regional Beach Trail that connects the entire Monterey Peninsula, over 15 miles from Pacific Grove to the Marina. If you ever had the slightest desire to take a 10+mile walk this would be the one.

A small well-behaved dog that does not bark would be considered.

When you need a place to get away from it all…yet be close to everything…Sanctuary in the Dunes

Our stay at Sanctuary in the Dunes was everything we hoped it would be and more. Our condo was excellent, very clean and stocked well with all that we needed for our months stay. We enjoyed the Monterey area and the restaurants we went to had such awesome seafoods. We will definitely go back again as we enjoyed being close to the ocean and beach to take daily walks on the boardwalk and on the beach. We have many great memories of our stay and definitely would like to return again.

"Lovely property and location. Stunning views. Being lulled to sleep every night by the roar of crashing waves was magical."

~ C. Abrahamson - northridge, ca

GUESTS STAYED IN JUNE 2019  ~ REVIEWED ON HOMEAWAY ~ 4 OUT OF 5 STARS

"Had a one month stay at this property in Monterey and found the apt. absolutely delightful, beautifully renovated and decorated with great sound system/kitchen. This end-unit has a unique ocean view with the soothing sounds of the ocean. The only problem encountered was that the covered parking spaced has an extremely narrow entrance and only suitable for parking of a small car. The on premise guest parking is only available for 5days, after that, got notices from HOA regarding not considered a guest. HOA did not approve the proper sticker for parking at the space allocated to the owner of the apt. Had to park on the street...."
