Details

Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present “Sand Dollar House”! Sleeps up to 7 guests.

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 décor with a modern coastal vibe that fits perfectly into this setting, with a back patio looking out upon the bay, where you can watch dolphins, 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.

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.

Living Spaces
Guests enter through the private, gated courtyard which includes a gourmet gas grill, patio seating and a sheltered porch with a tall counter and seats, an ideal gathering place for family and friends either for afternoon barbecues or evening socializing.
The entryway leads to a living room, kitchen and dining area in an open floor plan, with floor-to-ceiling windows looking toward the bay 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 or reading a good book by the fire.

Kitchen and Dining
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 is a dedicated laundry room with ample storage space and a washer and dryer.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Two bedrooms can be found on the upper level.
Bedroom #1 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. Please note that this bedroom has a loft-style layout and is open to the lower level.
Bedroom #2 offers a California King bed and an en suite bath with a tub/shower combo and removable shower head.
Downstairs, Bedroom #3 has two full/double size beds, a 30-inch HDTV, two leather club chairs and local ocean artwork.
The downstairs full bath with a tub/shower combo and removable shower head is accessible from the hallway.

Several parking spots are available adjacent to the condo’s courtyard entrance and one small space in the garage.

Beautiful views

by San Francisco CA

Overall Comment

Monterey Dunes is an incredibly relaxing and beautiful place to stay. This house had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen, three bathrooms and bedrooms. Only con was that the info stated they would try to accommodate early check-in or late check-out if you ask in advance. I asked repeatedly and was told each time to ask at a later time (a couple days before, then the afternoon before, then 30 minutes before check in - what's the point?) They also couldn't accommodate an 11am check-out, even though the house wasn't booked until the next day. They said the cleaners would arrive at 10:30 but we left later than that and they weren't there. I feel they can work on this accommodation. Having 4pm check-in and 10am check-out is less accommodating than I'd expect when paying over $1,000 a day.

Thank you for your review. We apologize that you felt the checkout and check in times are too restrictive. I have reached out to the Operations Team to get clarification as to why a 'later' checkout was not approved. Otherwise we are pleased that you enjoyed the home and all of its amenities. We look forward to your next visit.


Sand dollar House Review

by Meadow Vista Ca

Overall Comment

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar House. The location is wonderful with fabulous sea views, right on the sand dunes near the beach. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals were very professional, and we appreciated the welcomed gifts of wine and cheese and crackers. The property was very clean and well equipped, including coffee and popcorn.

The houses in this development are all older style homes and are showing their age to some degree. The master bedroom has an opening to the living room below which can be a disadvantage; any noise or light from the downstairs area will be noticed.

Overall though, we would definitely recommend this home for a stay at the beach.

We Loved Staying Here

by Chesterfield, MO

5 of 5

We loved staying here—two families with school age kids. It was incredibly comfortable and so close to the beach. We were out every day! Enjoyed the community hot tub as well. It had one of the best stocked kitchen with everything you need for cooking, practical items like washer, dryer, beach towels, extra blankets were all easily available. There was not one item we needed that we didn’t find! The views and beauty of the property were even better than the listing photos! We also really enjoyed the grill and private front yard area—again great for kids and for enjoying the weather.

We arrived with 5 adults and two children (10 & 3) for a very enjoyable Spring Break experience at Sand Dollar House. The house was spotlessly clean, fully equipped for both cooking and entertainment and was closely adjacent to the heated pool, hot tub, and sports area. In addition it sits on the dunes close to the beach and water. A lovely place to stay, with beautiful views, comfortable bedrooms, a washer/dryer and many other amenities. We also had contact with the Sanctuary Vacation staff, who were very responsive and helpful. We are definitely going to plan additional stays at this property.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Sand Dollar House this past weekend! The house was clean and well equipped for our group, and we had such a wonderful time. We loved walking along the sand in the mornings and kayaking in the slough nearby. I also loved that it was such a short drive from the Bay Area!

From the moment I opened the gate I knew our stay would be amazing.The patio and the house were perfectly equipped with all the necessary appliances and furniture that fit our needs. We were greeted with a beautiful tray of wine ,apple cider, crackers and cheese with a personal note. The house was immaculate and so comfortable, we slept in , played on the beach, and just enjoyed every day we spent there as a family. Wonderful memories were made once again. We’ve been guests of Monterey Dunes for 35 years , we’ll continue.The staff began reaching out to me 1 week week prior to our stay and continued once we arrived to assure all our needs were met. Thank you for making our stay so amazing.

This was our third time staying at this property and it was just as wonderful as the other two times. The home is lovely, all the comforts of home and more! The home was clean and staged beautifully! Our four year old absolutely loves being on the beach - does not care how cold it is, so its nice being able to walk to the beach and quickly run back and jump in a warm shower!

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. :)

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.
