Our Zatara family week
Reviewed by Vicki
Our family of 12 had a wonderful week in July. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds and linens were comfy and attractive. It really felt like home except for the bathrooms and some of the door fixtures which need updating and repair. It is a beautiful house.
Sitting on the balcony enjoying the ocean calm and action was a favorite. We will definitely go back!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The owner is gradually doing upgrades at the house (as they can be scheduled between reservations), so future guests can always look forward to improvements.
Luxury Home on Monterey Bay
Reviewed by Will King
My wife and I rented Zatara for 4 nights from March 28-April 1, 2017 to accommodate ourselves, our daughter, her husband and their six children. It was ideally located, ideally sized and designed, and ideally fitted out for our family holiday. We enjoyed the sunrise each morning, plus the birds, the boats, and the waves. The house is in good proximity to the Aquarium in Monterey. Point Lobos is a short drive, as are Carmel and its charms. The house layout was perfect for our family: my wife and I took the ensuite master bedroom upstairs, and our daughter and her family had their own suite downstairs, which afforded the parents the opportunity to keep tabs on the children ages 11-17. Parking was adequate for our two vehicles, though one must be careful backing onto the street. The area is quiet as can be. The kitchen was amply equipped with first class appliances and chef's tools, allowing us to prepare meals when we stayed home rather than enjoying the wonderful restaurants nearby. The living room and outside balcony were generously sized to allow everyone to gather for a movie while allowing additional room for group jigsaw puzzles, solitary reading and quiet contemplation of nature. The washer/dryer allowed us to keep the kids in clean clothes. The housekeeping prior to our arrival was impeccable: the place was immaculate. Overall, we highly recommend Zatara and certainly will return the next time we need something this size.

Great house! Monterey Bay management was great/easy to work with. House was as expected, clean and well appointed. Beds were comfortable. Location and views were both outstanding. We stayed for three nights and managed to see whales, dolphins and seals right from the deck. I rented the house for myself and several people running the Big Sur Marathon. The layout worked well for our group - the open concept kitchen with deck overlooking the bay was perfect for a fun dinner in. I could live here!
Fabulous house! Spectacular view!

The Zatara house was a great house for our family when my daughter got married in Carmel last weekend. It was especially helpful on the morning of the wedding when the bridesmaids came over to have their hair and makeup done. There was enough room for the girls, the hair/makeup artists, and the photographers with lots of natural light and beautiful views. Other than some minor plumbing problems, everything else went very smoothly. The house was well stocked, the beds comfortable and the views of the ocean were priceless.

This property was almost perfect in every way. It is just the right size for our family of 12. It is located right on the bay and the waves were awesome! The home is beautifully decorated, is very well equipped and is so very homey. If you need some space, there is little places you can go to get away from others. We absolutely loved it and have reserved it again for next year. Thank you for sharing your home!
Perfect house for our large family weekend

The house was beautiful and the view could not be beat overlooking the ocean. The kitchen was well equipped which came in handy with 12 of us and the BarBQ worked well and it was nicely located right next to the kitchen door. Location was wonderful, as we could walk downtown, walk along the beach paths, or just walk to Lover's Point for a cocktail overlooking the beach. We all enjoyed having all 3 fireplaces for added coziness and warmth during the evenings. Other than the bathrooms being a bit outdated and having a few minor maintenance issues, we loved the house. We will be back.

A magical stay with our family: 5 grandchildren and 6 adults. The accommodations were convenient to walking, the beach...and "eating in" was a joy as the view was better than any you could find at even the finest restaurants! Only the 7 month old baby was left out of the "kids" bedroom which made going to bed a breeze because the cousins got to be together.We want to return next summer!!!
Wonderful home for a family get together

This was definitely everyone's highlight of our 10 day vacation trip. Monterrey was beautiful, but this home was really the icing on the cake. The home was so spacious with absolutely breathtaking views. We were able to cook two meals at the home with no problems. We were 9 adults and had a lot more room to share. The location for key pick-up and drop off was located conveniently close by. The decor was lovely and the rooms were clean. Thank you and hope to be back!
A Wonderful Class Reunion

We organized a middle school class reunion at Pacific Grove. We rented Zatara, Bellisima, and Chateau Sandy Toes to house twenty around seventy-five-year-olds and use Zatara as the base. We had a wonderful time. All three houses are spacious, clean and beautiful. The beds are comfortable. Not to mention that Michelle and Sandy are so helpful that they even mail the items we left behind back to us. Thanks for the memory.

Our extended family stayed in this home while visiting Monterey for Grandma's 92nd birthday. This home was super clean, beautiful and comfortable for our family of 10 with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The Property Managers were quick on the scene when we had issues with the cable TV. Kitchen was well equipped, there was nice seating areas indoors and on the deck and patio with magnificent views. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep and the beds were comfortable. I highly recommend this home and look forward to renting it again next summer!

Good location. We thought that the street would be loud but it was not. Lots of room to spread-out and the kitchen worked out well. Would be nice to have had another queen rather then the bunk beds--all are married couples. Thanks for sending the whales our way, they hug out with us all week long. Key pad on garage did not work, but it was not needed so we did not call. when do your winter rate cease? We are thinking that early March might we a bid nicer. Bob Witham

We had a wonderful time at the Zatara House. The house is as pictured. The rooms are comfortable. The view is amazing!! My family is mostly early risers so we all enjoyed the sunrise in the morning with a cup of coffee. We had amazing weather the week we were spent there.
The house is stocked with everything that you need to make you stay comfortable. We cooked most of our meals at home and all the appliances worked very well.
The location was perfect for our needs.
A memorable vacation.

Our stay was for our son's wedding in Monterey. Our family consisted of our children, aunt and uncle, cousin, neice, grandmother, and friends. We all enjoyed our time in the house, especially grandma who loved looking out at the ocean. The only downfall is that the house was a little cold so we turned up the thermostat but that didn't seem to help. Other than that, the house provided a great time for all!
