Ocean Wave A - Monterey
1 Bedroom Walk To Beach Condo
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a hop skip away from this ocean view pied a terre in the heart of historic Cannery Row. Grab your favorite coffee drink at Starbucks right around the corner and visit the seals on a sun-spangled Monterey morning. Watch... more the sunset, barbecue on the back deck, or walk across the street to dine at the Sardine Factory or the Whaling Station. And when the fog rolls in, get warm and toasty in front of the modern glass fireplace, enjoying the flat screen TV with DVD. This quiet one bedroom/one bath upstairs condo has ocean views from the bedroom and dining room. Decorated in serene shades of soft blue and taupe with pine and rattan furniture, the beach theme is carried throughout. The well-equipped kitchen has whitewashed cabinetry and pale blue quartzite countertops, while a glass atrium roof splashes sunlight into the dining room. From the floating white chiffon drapes to the ocean blue dishes, the owners of this meticulously maintained “home away from home” have thought of everything. less ↑

Exceeded our expectations!
We have been coming to Monterey for almost 20 years; this was the first time we rented a place for a month. Our stay at Ocean Wave A was amazing, much beyond what we had expected. The unit has an open floor plan, windows allowing... more the bright sunshine in and stocked with all the amenities needed for a perfect stay. The location is unbeatable; steps from the path along the ocean, Starbucks, restaurants, and a grocery store just a block away. We quickly fell into a wonderful routine, never wanting to leave. In fact, we already reserved our stay for next fall. What a gem; I almost hate to tell others about it. You won't be disappointed. Oh, and the staff from Monterey Rentals are top notch; so responsive and ready to help in any way to make your stay the best! less

Ocean Wave A was fantastic. The Apartment was clean, well decorated and in a perfect location. It truly felt like a home away from home. My wife and I both like to walk so the location suited us well. The paved walking trail was just... more below the Apartment so we often took a leisurely walk to Fishermans Wharf or Lovers Point. The apratment is also one block from cannery Row and just steps from restaurants. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone interested in spending time in this area. We have been vacationing in Monterey since 1988 and this is by far the most appealing place that we have stayed. less

I almost don’t want to give a review because I want to keep this little jewel of a place to myself. But in all fairness, we have absolutely loved this little location and place. The owners are very responsive to any of our needs. And... more waking up to the sounds of seagulls, seals and sea bells is magical. less

Loveliest Place Ever
My wife and I had the joy of staying at the Ocean Wave A unit in Monterey over the Christmas holiday and I couldn’t think of a better place to stay! A little background: I have been coming up to the Monterey Peninsula since I... more was 5 years old with my parents. Over the years I have stayed at a number of places, both with my parents as a kid, and with my wife the last 25 years. Hands down, this has been the loveliest place I have ever stayed. So bright, so airy, so roomy, so immaculately clean …1 bedroom and kitchen seemed like a comfy home. A walk to Cannery Row, a walk to the world famous Aquarium. A few minutes drive to Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove. And I cannot speak enough about the management… from Jan to her staff, one word says it all: exceptional! less

Sunny July. NOT
This unit exceeded our expectation. It was clean, lots of light, plenty of space, well stocked and very comfortable. We expected to not like parking in the garage down the street but that ended up ok. The grocery store just down the street was great.... more We have spent time in the area for the last 20 years and this ranks in the top. less

Love “our” Condo
We have spent a wonderful month every summer for the past eight (8) years at Ocean Wave A. The condo is always clean and well supplied. The location is so centrally located! There are so many restaurants within walking distance and the world class aquarium... more is just around the corner. Ashley and Michelle are SO pleasant and helpful...they make sure you have everything you need.....they are the best! Yes, we have already reserved “our” Ocean Wave A for 2019. less

816A Wave St. Monterey
Great location with great view of humanity passing by, especially on the recreation trail. Property Management Office is conveniently below and the people there are wonderfully responsive to our every need and pleasantly friendly as well! A great vacation spot!!!!

Highlight of our summer
This was our seventh year of spending a month at 816A Wave Street and we have already reserved it for the month of August 2018. It is wonderful! Management goes above and beyond to make sure we have every thing we need. Ashley and Michele... more are the greatest!!! We enjoy all of the great restaurants which are within just a few short blocks. The coastal walking trail next to the condo is one of our favorite things to do. We park our car in the parking garage and never use it until our stay is over! And of course the Monterey Bay Aquarium is just next door so we buy annual passes which enables us to visit as often as we wish. It is the perfect vacation spot. less

Central and comfortable
This unit is one of the two on the second floor of the house where the Monterey Rentals office is located. The location is very central: the recreation trail runs along the back of the house, Cannery Row is a block or two away as... more is the Aquarium, and everything one needs is within a walking distance. The downside of this is that it can get pretty noisy, but we think the advantages outweigh this inconvenience. The unit itself is very pleasant, with a nice floor plan that makes the best of the space. The living room furniture is comfortable. The bedroom is very spacious, with a comfortable bed and sufficient closet space, shelves and drawers to unpack into. Off the bedroom is a nice porch facing the rec trail. Regrettably, the outdoor furniture is very much the worse for wear, being left outside uncovered at all times. We opted for getting our own outdoor chairs. There is also a narrow porch on the other side of the house, facing the parking lot. For parking, one gets a card for a public garage two blocks away. One can also park in the little parking lot in front of the house when the office is closed. We had a very nice stay there, right in the middle of all that Monterey has to offer. less

Perfect in every Way!
This was our 5th year at the condo, and we have already reserved year #6. I think that says it all! The condo is perfect…..has everything we need for a month of bliss. Location is the best, only a block from the aquarium and many... more of our favorite restaurants. Plus a nice view of the bay from the bedroom and dining area. And the staff is wonderful! Very responsive to any request. We refer to it as "Our Condo in Paradise". less

We loved the place and the location.
We were so near Canary Row and the harbor. It is a very scenic place to take walks.The big attraction was the aquarium. When we saw the prices, we really appreciated the passes from the condo. For the last 5 years we have stayed at... more various places for a month during the winter. Your place was number one. The Dishwasher soap dispenser was broken. It was usable. less
— Bruce and Mary Fran, Stayed 03/10/2014
We love the location too (we work right downstairs)! We've had the soap dispenser repaired, and we apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused. Please come visit us again next winter!
Ocean Wave a Unit is Spectacular
I recommend this unit for anyone staying overnight in Monterey. It's got a little bit of everything--an electric fireplace, a bath, a nice-sized kitchen (given the unit's overall square footage) and best of all it has a great view of the Monterey bay from both... more the dining room and the bedroom. The staff of Monterey Rentals is superb. They are very attentive and efficient. Other comments on Ocean Wave a--you can't beat its access to Cannery Row. It is less than a block from everything--the aquarium, the bay trail (for running, biking), and all the restaurants & shopping. The decor inside Ocean Wave a is beach/nautical themed, and it's both relaxing and attractive. Rent it. less

Great location, nice view, clean, fully stocked, very comfortable. Would stay again.
— Michelle, Stayed 04/30/2013
A great spot to spend a month!
The space was great - living, kitchen, dining, bedroom and deck. We were withing walking distance of the aquarium, restaurants, supermarket and the shoreline walking trail. Our own washer and drier was great. Safe parking in the garage a plus also.
