Description

Welcome to “Sand Dollar House”! Sleeps 7

Spectacular views of the Monterey Bay and your own private boardwalk to the beach are among the very special features of this home in a gated community near the quaint fishing village of Moss Landing.

The 3-bedroom, 3-bath condo features designer décor with a modern coastal vibe that fits perfectly into this setting, with an enclosed front courtyard that offers peace and privacy, as well as a back patio looking out upon the bay, where you can watch whales, whales and seagulls over the private beach and protected sand dune habitat.

Ocean views from the main bedroom suite, living room and dining room let guests enjoy twinkling lights at night and the entire bay by day. Vaulted ceilings, large windows and outdoor seating areas at the front and back of the home let indoors and out flow together seamlessly.

A private courtyard at the front of the home is an ideal gathering place for family and friends either for afternoon barbecues or evening socializing, with ample seating and a gourmet gas grill.

Part of the Monterey Dunes Colony, the 1,680-square-foot condo is situated at the midpoint of the bay, with easy access to attractions on the Monterey Peninsula and in the Santa Cruz area.

The complex is next to Salinas River State Beach, a favorite spot to walk, bird watch and take photos. Monterey and Santa Cruz are within a half hour’s drive, and just a bit further are the world-class golf courses and restaurants of Pebble Beach, the natural wonders of Big Sur, and wine tasting and dining in Carmel Valley Village.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, wine tasting passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided beach towels, shower and bath amenities, and robes in the bathrooms.

Guests enter through the gated courtyard which includes a gourmet gas grill, patio seating and a sheltered porch with a tall counter and seats. The entryway leads to a living room, kitchen and dining area in an open floor plan, with floor-to-ceiling windows and hardwood-look floors.

The living room includes a wood-burning brick fireplace and a comfortable sectional sofa, a perfect place for conversation, watching the 50-inch HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player, or reading a good book by the fire.

The adjacent dining room has seating for 6 at the table with several more seats available at the kitchen counter. The kitchen includes newer stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space.

Also on this level are a laundry room with ample storage space and a washer and dryer, a full bath with a tub/shower combo and removable shower head, and a bedroom with two full-size beds, a 30-inch HDTV, two leather club chairs and local ocean artwork.

Two more bedrooms can be found on the upper level. The main bedroom faces the bay, with views to enjoy from the spacious California King bed with luxury linens in tones of blue, aqua, white and sand. Also featured are a 42-inch HDTV and upholstered chair, as well as an en suite bath with a large shower with grab bars.

The other bedroom offers a California King bed and an en suite bath with a tub/shower combo and removable shower head.

Several parking spots are available adjacent to the condo’s courtyard entrance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This unit had a wonderful open concept type layout with the outdoor deck as a main focus. The view was incredible from the master bedroom. Everything was provided from extra shampoo bottles to coffee grounds to duraflame logs for the fireplace. They thought of everything to make us feel at home and comfortable. We can't wait to stay here again soon!

Love the patio with lots of seating and new gas grill. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils for people like us who love to cook. Thanks for multiple coffee making options and a great toaster, too! The bedding is wonderful. Not only tasteful colors, but great feeling comforters and sheets. Appreciate the beach/pool/hot tub towels. Not mentioning the dunes and ocean view because that's why we come to these units - it's so incredible especially to watch the sunset. Thank you.

Wonderful place for two families with young children to spend a week. Quiet, clean, with ample parking and access to pool and beach. Comfortable beds and well-equipped kitchen. We made quick trips to town for groceries and takeout, and had easy access to Monterey Car Week activities. We had everything we wanted, except for the sun (60 degrees was the high the whole week). The 4-yr-old is already planning to move to Sand Dollar House permanently. :)

Great location and beautiful view. We loved the two master suites and the walking distance from the beach. Very nice property although we found the kitchen fully furnished but too small for two families.

Guests stayed in June 2021 ~ Reviewed on VRBO ~ 4 out of 5 Stars!

"My family and I stayed at 164 for 3 nights. It's a beautiful spot, just over a set of dunes from the ocean. The boardwalks make navigating your way down to the beach quite easy, even for our small children. One note, the pool is a community pool, not with the house itself which I had misunderstood. The pool and facilities are really quite nice. It's heated and fantastic for small children, a nice shallow area to play in, even with a handrail to hang onto. One negative note, the homeowner actually charges guests for heating and cooling during their stay, in addition to the rather expensive nightly rate. To me this is something I don't understand and felt was out of line, and is the reason I'm taking stars off from the review. Outside of that it was a very nice place to stay - a nice welcome of cheese, crackers, and wine, comfortable bedding and plenty of coffee options."

A. Cranston - Walnut Creek, CA

MANAGER'S NOTE: Please know that there is no charge for heating and cooling; the sign was placed in the home by mistake and has since been removed.  There is an mandatory HOA fee for the use of the communal pool; neither the homeowner nor SVR can change this fee.
