Beachouse - Pacific Grove
3 Bedroom Walk To Beach Beach House
Set sail for the ultimate vacation! Perched like a ship atop the powdery white sands of the Asilomar Dunes, this beach house features luxe furnishings, a modern kitchen, a sheltered patio, and ocean views. Upstairs there's a master suite with a Cal King bed... more and a second guest room with a Queen; the lower floor has a third bedroom with two twins and a media room with a pull-out sofa. There are five flat panel TVs in the home. Asilomar Beach - at the gateway to Pebble Beach - offers some of the most stunning scenery on the California coast. Spend your days at the sheltered cove at the end of the street. Take long walks on the boardwalk. Play golf, visit the Aquarium, or surrender to the charms of Carmel. At close of day, head to Spanish Bay for a sunset libation. Then come home, light a fire, and fall asleep to the sounds of the surf. NOTE: This is a quiet residential neighborhood (no loud noise or events are permitted) in an environmentally sensitive area. The California Coastal Commission does not allow walking on the dunes, as plants can easily be damaged - but there is a great sandy beach just down the road for your enjoyment.

Best Ever Vacation Home
This was our 5th time to stay at the Ultimate Beach House! We love everything about it! The location is STELLAR! Close to everything but also quiet! This house was IMMACULATE!!! Cool breezes blowing through the screen doors, and deer every morning! Sunsets steps away... more on the beach were phenomenal. We will be back again for sure! This home is so comfortable!!! Our very favorite!!! less

I surprised my parents for their 60th Anniversary and booked the Beachhouse for 3 nights. They were amazed at the location and how beautiful the house was especially the master bedroom and bath. It is truly a special house and felt like your own piece... more of paradise. We were blessed with amazing weather and all the deer in the backyard. My parents can't stop talking about their surprise....thank you Debra for all of your help. Also, thank the owners for sharing their piece of paradise with us! less

We have been fortunate enough to stay here several times and enjoy it each one! Location is convenient to Monterey, Pebble Beach and Carmel. Proximity to beach and ocean views are a treat. House is comfortable and well appointed.
— Amber, Stayed 08/25/2022
What an outstanding property, we absolutely loved it here. Amazing views from each room, space to spread out. Enjoy daily viewings of the local deer as they come and visit the property. Having coffee on the patio OR a drink on the deck off the... more master suite. Sheer perfection. Big kitchen with everything you need to cook, including good pots/pans. We enjoyed every minute of our stay :) less

What a vacation
Our family of six really enjoyed this vacation home… what’s not to love when you are steps from the ocean! Beautifully decorated, all the amenities, lovely master with great view. The porch on the back patio was comfortable to sit and enjoy the perfect weather... more we had but most of our time was spent on the beach about a block from the home. This is a gem! less
— ej, Stayed 06/25/2022
Five adults stayed here for several nights and had a great time. The house is beautiful and well appointed. We hope to return soon!

The Beachouse is a beautiful, peaceful, lovely retreat. It had everything we needed for 4 adults and a toddler. The great room is magnificent and the bedrooms very comfortable. We ate dinners “in” each evening, and the kitchen was well stocked with all appliances (including... more the outdoor grill) top notch and in great condition. We took advantage of its proximity to the beach for our morning walks. We had a wonderful time. Thank you. less

P.G. Beach House
I can’t say enough good things about the house! It was perfectly located AND an absolutely lovely home. We had all the amenities we could need and then some. The views and light in the house were spectacular! I would absolutely stay again.
— Jennifer, Stayed 04/29/2022
Perfect base for our family's visit to Pacific Grove. Views and easy access to ocean incredible, and on windy days we really appreciated glass screening on patio. Beautifully appointed and equipped. Enjoyed daily visits by deer.
— Ann, Stayed 04/22/2022
Great House and Location
Our first time at the Beachhouse. Great home with modern open design, modern appliances, windows and views everywhere and a Master bedroom that is pretty phenomenal. Short walk to 17 mile drive. Near all needs for groceries and downtown Monterey and Pacific Grove. The three... more bathrooms were complete with contemporary showers and tub in Master. Definitely a return trip is in order for us. less
— Steven, Stayed 03/27/2022
Wonderful Stay at the Beachouse
My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Beachouse. The location, the house, the view, the cleanliness were all exceptional. I particularly liked walking along the coast, watching the sunset from the bedroom, and listening to the waves break with the windows open... more at night. less
— Tom, Stayed 01/29/2022
Great House, Location and View
Probably the best rental experience we’ve had in 20 years. The house is perfect and the master bedroom was spectacular. Good location near Pebble Beach and restaurants in Monterey and Carmel. Easy walk to beach boardwalk. Fantastic views of the ocean and sunsets. House is... more well outfitted and everything worked. We would love to stay here again. less

Berach House, Pacific Grove
This is a great house. It was our third stay at Beach House and we'll be back next year. The house is always very clean and kitchen is well stocked. The house has great views and the location to the beach is ideal.

Mother’s Day weekend
Incredible place to stay and bring the family. Such a beautiful house and location. 5 stars all the way
— Jason, Stayed 05/12/2021
This was our 2nd stay here. It did not disappoint! We felt so at home here. Extremely clean!! Amazing views! Well appointed interior design. Property management company was easy to communicate with and very friendly. We will be back as soon as we can!
— Sandra, Stayed 04/08/2021
Outstanding property And management in everyday will be back
— donald, Stayed 09/26/2020
The house was clean. The management company, specifically Debra, was very helpful prior to our stay. We were concerned about the nearby fires and smoke. The owner and Debra were very accommodating. We were grateful for their kindness. I would come back to the house.... more It’s close (5 minute walk) to the beach. It’s a lovely home in an awesome neighborhood. less
— Angela, Stayed 09/03/2020
Great House and Location
Right across the street from the beach walk along Sunset Drive (Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail). Spacious and private w/ ocean views from wrap around deck and master scenic windows. Deer roaming the sand hills. Quiet. Just over a mile from restaurants (Passionfish, Red House... more Cafe) and shops on Lighthouse Avenue. A few-minutes drive to Asilomar Beach, the gate at 17-Mile Drive and Point Pinos Lighthouse. Wish I were there now. less
— George, Stayed 07/22/2020
The pictures don't do it justice, and neither can words. The house is incredible, with views galore. Great location to see everything in the Central Coast. Highly recommend.
— John, Stayed 07/07/2020
The Best of the Best
One of the best rentals we have ever stayed in. The location is perfect, amazing ocean views and a short walk to the beaches and tidepools of Asilomar. The house is perfectly equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We felt right at home... more cooking family dinners, enjoying the BBQ and patio, and sleeping in the comfy beds. Highly recommended. less
— Myra, Stayed 06/23/2020
A lovely setting in Pacific Grove
We spent a lovely five days and four nights at the Beachouse. It is a beautiful home sitting up on the dunes near Asilomar Retreat. It is very modern with a great kitchen and plenty of space in the living room, the seven of us... more never felt crowded. All you had to do was walk out the door and within less than 5 min you were on the beach walkway enjoying the coast line. It has parking for two cars on the drive way and two cars in the garage. The gas grill on the terrace worked like a charm. The house is well kept up and the cleaning team insured that it was spotless when we arrived. The dining room table was already set which was a nice touch. The master bedroom is shall I say over the top. It is as big as the living room with a huge walk in closet and huge master bathroom. However it the view from the master bedroom that is simply super. You will really like staying here as we did. less
— Dale, Stayed 12/23/2019
This home was a vacation in itself!!
Beachouse was everything and more than the pictures on the listing. From the moment you walk in the front door you are in for a treat! It is gorgeous!! Super clean and views from most rooms. The kitchen had high end appliances and was well... more stocked. Although we did not use it, there is also a gas grill on the patio. We spent more time in the home than we anticipated because it was just so lovely...the owner has board games as well as some dvds for family time. We loved the fact there was a washer and dryer along with plenty of fresh linens as well. The home was perfect for our family of 6. The master suite is spectacular!! The views and hearing the waves crashing from your bed....wow. The other 3 bedrooms are nicely appointed but if you’re traveling with couples...someone in the group is hitting the jackpot with the master! We enjoyed many walks down to the beach to sit, walk, explore tide pools. Deer walk right past you...it was kind of shocking. The location of this home is perfection if you want accessibility to beach, golf (Pebble Beach courses, Poppy Hills and Pacific Grove are all just a short gorgeous drive away ) aquarium/Cannery row area. Our family had an incredible time in this home and would highly recommend!! less
— Rachelle, Stayed 10/16/2019
Everything We Needed
My daughter and I had a very lovely time at Beachouse. It was quiet and so close to what we came for...the ocean. We enjoyed the lighthouse and walking through Pacific Grove and left well rested.
— Donna, Stayed 09/17/2019
This house is nothing short of AMAZING! The house is beautifully furnished, had all the amenities needed for our stay, and felt so comfortable. The master bedroom is spectacular! The huge walk-in closet and en suite are classy and gorgeous! And the view...WOW! If you... more are staying in the Monterey, Pacific Grove area, this house is the place to stay. less
— Luann, Stayed 09/11/2019
This house was fabulous, beautiful views and vibe. The house itself is very comfortable and really clean; one of the best rentals we've stayed in, great value for the money, and we we have booked many vacation home rentals the past 5 years. If you... more are going to Monterey this is the place to be. less

Pacific Grove Beach House
Lovely, well-equipped home in a quiet neighborhood.
— Jeana, Stayed 07/20/2019
We had an amazing time in Monterey. Love the area and this house was fabulous. It was perfectly located in a relaxing area very close to the water and a short drive to town. It was clean, modern and comfortable. Perfect for our family vacation.
— Tricia, Stayed 07/11/2019
Amazing property, location and views!
Perfect central location to visit big sur, Carmel, 17 mile drive and Monterey! The house had breathtaking views of Pacific Ocean. We walked to ocean every night to watch sunsets along with our seal friends. Saw deer on the property every day. Our family of... more 6 really enjoyed the accommodations and we will definitely return! less
— Elaine, Stayed 06/13/2019
I Was A House Rental Skeptic!
Now I’m a believer! The house was beautiful, nice and tastefully furnished. It was very clean, rivals any 5-star hotel, and with the comfort of home! Debra, our contact at Monterey Rentals, was very responsive, answered all questions promptly. Great view of Monterey Bay from... more the house, easy walk to the beach (even for those of us how aren’t in great shape). Easy drive (only minutes) back to into Monterey for dinner. We’re already talking about renting again! less
— Dee, Stayed 05/09/2019
This house is so much prettier than the pictures on the website! Miles of gleaming hardwood floors with more than enough space for our party of 4 adults & a 2 year old. Everything was in tip top shape. We enjoyed the Viking 6 burner... more gas cook top & the huge Subzero fridge & the easy access to the garage with our own remote. The beds were comfortable with super smooth sheets. One day, we saw 3 beautiful deer walking through the dunes. At night, the moonlight lit up the waves in the ocean. Just can't say enough good things about this spectacular house. Thank you, Debra, for taking care of all of our rental needs. less
— Veronica, Stayed 03/29/2019
A lovely spot
The beach house was perfect for us. Adult kids and parents and grandparents. Grandpa and wife got the master suite and they were very happy with the great view. Location excellent. Kitchen well equipped. Living-dining-kitchen space perfect for hanging out together. Fireplace fussy but help... more came right away to fix it for us. Beautiful walks along the shore. Close to aquarium, Point Reyes and Carmel Mission- all of which we enjoyed. less
— Anita, Stayed 03/25/2019
House was fabulous! It was beautiful, close to the water and it was very clean!! The views were great and it was a quick walk down to the water. The house was stocked with everything we needed and we very much enjoyed ourselves. Hope to... more return to the beachhouse one day! less
— Stacy, Stayed 02/04/2019
This home is an amazing value for what it provides. Gorgeous views, location is perfect - short short walk to beach, you can hear the waves with windows open, and all finishing touches on the home are of the best quality. Highly highly recommend.
— JARED, Stayed 01/27/2019
Absolutely perfect getaway house!
This house was a perfect choice for a girlfriend trip to the Monterey area. Even though we had several activities planned while on vacation, we would have been happy staying home and enjoying this property. We found it beautifully decorated, furnished with everything you could... more possibly need, and very clean. The location to the beach and area sights was great too! I highly recommend this house and hope to return next year! less
— Gayle, Stayed 12/12/2018
Great House---clean and neat. Driveway is very demanding for a van to back out or turn around but a small car should not be a problem House needed more water glasses and Red wine glasses only had White Only problem a few black marks on... more walls going upstairs Finally the cleaning crew did not sweep patio--cob-webs on furniture and pile of feathers in corner of deck area . Rest was just beautiful Great views !! Very up-to-date !!! Great house !!! less
— Robert, Stayed 09/22/2018
Far beyond our Imagination!!!
Pictures of this property and the surrounding dunes are breathtaking; unbelievably, the real thing is even better!! With blinds and windows open you can both see and hear the nearby surf. From every room the natural Asilomar dunes are visible, and the beach experience is... more just a short stroll away. And then there's the inside of the house! The kitchen is gorgeous and better equipped than my own, the bedrooms are comfortable and quiet, the gathering area has seating for all - I really could go on and on but will sum up with the following: this is a must see, we will be back. less
— Rob and Julie, Stayed 05/30/2018
Lovely and serene Beachouse stay!
Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay (despite heavy rain almost every day!) The location was perfect. The house was magnificent with lovely wood doors and floors - the kitchen was very nicely stocked with all of the amenities we needed. We were able to... more enjoy a meal outside on the back patio which was private. The neighbourhood is very quiet, yet we were able to easily drive out and even could walk to the aquarium as an outing. The beach is only a couple of minutes from the end of the driveway and you can walk left or right for variety. More than once, deer were seen right outside the front door which was a thrill each time. Thank you for a memorable stay! less
— Allison, Stayed 03/24/2018
Beautiful house in a perfect location. Large, quiet, and with all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay.
— Martin, Stayed 03/08/2018
Beautiful home a block away from Monterey Bay -- so comfortable, awesome views
Our group of 7 (2 families of 3, plus Grandma) stayed at the Pico House for 3 days in February. The location was fantastic, it's very quick drive to either the heart of Carmel, or Cannery Row area of Monterey. But very quiet location and... more an easy 5 minute walk down the block to the beach. Our favorite activity was walking down to the beach to look at tide pools, climb on the rocks and look at the sunset. The house itself is so well outfitted with all conveniences that we ended up eating in 2 of the 3 nights. We loved sitting in the living room with it's fantastic views, enjoying the sunshine, plus everyone joining in at the big kitchen to prepare meals. Can't say enough good things about this house. My teenage son stayed on the sleep sofa in the media room and he loved having his own "space". Plenty of bathrooms for everyone in this house, and we parked the 2 cars in the garage. We will be back! less
— Kay, Stayed 02/25/2018
The "Boat" House
Amazing location, couldn't ask for better accommodations. My group of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views from the upstairs bedroom are breathtaking - each morning we enjoyed sitting reading the paper and sipping our cup of tea. Afternoons spent walking the pristine coastline taking... more in the fresh air. Leisurely day trips into town or down the road to Carmel - optional, however, this home is a place to feel right at home. The kitchen is well-stocked and we ate in more than out. This was our second stay at the Beach House and I would highly recommend it. One minor flaw was the DVD player did not function, we brought movies but didn't seem to care that we couldn't watch them! less
— Ann Marie , Stayed 02/05/2018
Wonderful HOliday Stay
My Family and I had a wonderful 9 day stay over the Holidays at the Beachouse. The Beachouse is exactly as pictured and advertised. The Gourmet Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook wonderful family meals. The walk down to the beach... more is worth the effort several times a day! A Wonderful Vacation and Holiday - Thank you! less
— Carrie , Stayed 01/08/2018
Fabulous amenities in this home and location wonderful
We stayed four days at this home and it was not enough. The home was very clean and well stocked. Easy walking distance to the beach and fantastic views from the master suite. The location was great and easy driving to all Monterey has to... more offer. We would definitely stay here again. less
— Patti, Stayed 10/13/2017
The view from the master bedroom is fantastic. The kitchen/family room is spacious and well appointed. Conveniently located. Highly recommended.
— Bean Mom, Stayed 08/26/2017
The entire experience from booking to check out exceeded our expectations. The location was top notch, quality of the property was reflected accurately and the responsiveness of the staff above reproach. I can heartily recommend both this property and the Monterey Bay Property management staff.
— John Parker, Stayed 07/30/2017
This home is up the street from Asilomar State Beach, where you can walk along the ocean on the walking trail. This home has been beautifully updated, the owners put a lot of thought and care into the update. The kitchen is beautiful, large, and... more has all the amenities you will need, it is open to the dining room and living room which is very nice, we had several meals at home and those who were preparing meals were able to visit with everyone. The home has three bedrooms, the master bedroom has the best ocean view in the house, it has a large walk-in closet, large bathroom and the bed was comfortable. The second bedroom is on the same level as the master, it has a full size bed and it has it's own bathroom with shower, the bed was also comfortable. The third bedroom is on the ground level with twin beds, the guest staying in this room mentioned that the beds were uncomfortable. The home has a small media room with a pull out sofa. We had a wonderful stay and Debra was wonderful to work with. less
— Anne B, Stayed 06/04/2017
The beachouse was amazing. It is great for a long weekend getaway with friends or family. The huge family room /kitchen was fantastic. Loved cooking meals and still being able to talk with people. And the Master bedroom was unbelievable. Huge windows in the master... more bedroom and great room with views of the ocean! Great location too. Close to Pacific Grove, Carmel, and Monterey. Had Hikes at Big Sur and Pointe Lobos. And of course th daily walks along the ocean at Asilomar Beach. Along with daily otter sightings. And the people at Monterey Rentals were so nice. Even gave us some ideas for hikes in Big Sur. I highly recommend the Beachouse. less
— Jan, Stayed 01/16/2017
Great Monterey Stay!
The house is about 200 yards or so up the street away from Asilomar Beach. with the windows and/or sliders open you can hear the crashing of the waves - really soothing. The house has everything you need for 6 to 8 people with bedrooms... more and bathrooms for all. The master bedroom and bath are very large - calling them a master suite doesn't do them justice. great morning walks down to the beach to watch the sun come up. Very short drive into Cannery row along the ocean (saw 3 whales driving in), or over to Spanish Bay Inn to listen to the bag-piper close down the day (very good food and drinks). We will definitely be staying here again! less
— Kathleen, Stayed 11/19/2016
Outstanding home in great location
This is an excellent home in a good and quiet location. It has high end amentities and is beautifully furnished. It was clean and everything operated perfectly. The arrangements through Monterey Rentals were simple and easy to follow. I highly recommend this home for your... more vacation in this area. less
— Jacalyn, Stayed 10/18/2016
Beach house review
This was a nice home in a nice area. The two disappointing things I felt were it is a multi-level floor plan so elderly people will not appreciate that as you are constantly going up and down stairs. Aside from that the TV/entertainment system is... more badly in need of updating. In the family room there was one small, maybe 40" TV with no surround sound system at all. They had a TV room but again, a small maybe 45" TV in a small room and no surround sound. Finally, for the master bedroom, which was large and had great views, there was a TV in cabinet that sat at the foot of the bed and again no surround sound. Of the three TV's I have mentioned, that was the best set-up. Overall I have given this 4/5 stars. Updating the TV and adding surround sound would take it to 5/5. less
— Ann Marie , Stayed 09/20/2016
My family stayed in this gorgeous house for a week while in California for my sons wedding. We were so pleased with the house that we will definitely rent it again if we return to the area. The kitchen had everything that we needed, the... more bedrooms were large and comfortable (the master bedroom is amazing) and the open floor plan was very spacious with views of the beach. It has a nice patio with glass protection on one side that made it very comfortable. The pictures of the home on the website are completely accurate. Do not hesitate to rent this home; you will not be disappointed. less
— Joanne, Stayed 09/28/2015
This property is one of the few places I've stayed where I could say both "this is a quality property" and "I could live in this house". Very well maintained, only the tiniest of issues, better than any nice hotel even. The people at the... more rental office were very nice. We had six adults (3 couples) stay for 3 days and everyone was very happy with the house, the grounds themselves as well as the location. The master bedroom is a super showpiece room with huge closet and fantastic bathroom. Really nothing bad to say about it. less
— Marc I, Stayed 03/23/2015
The dream vacation in the best house!
The house was excellent and beyond - everyone admired the location (spectacular ocean views from every room), the space was open and most functional, the furnishing and decor - contemporary, new and with excellent taste! WE had fantastic times in the house form dining and... more dancing, to sitting on the patio, and watching sunsets! Great place! less
— MSE345, Stayed 06/01/2014
great place for those with children
We loved the beachhouse and our family had a wonderful time here with our children. It is much better than staying at a hotel. Pros: very close to Monterey Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, and Dennis the Menace Park. beautiful home with lots of space to entertain... more (although I am not sure if you are allowed to host a party), great staff and 24 hr maintenance service, and provides lots of kitchen materials for cooking. Cons: even after paying around $250 for cleaning fee, you are still responsible to do some cleaning (towels in hamper, dish in dishwasher, and take out the trash)....this made us a bit stress out on our departure. Also, the beds are way too soft. none of us really slept that well on them. But despite all that, we would recommend this house to others and would love to stay again. less
— riannaau, Stayed 05/23/2014
The Beachouse was for us, our home away from home
A great value for your dollar, this home near the beach in Pacific Grove matched, if not exceeded our expectations. It was a wonderful "get-away" for us and our friends without feeling like we had to compromise our own standard of living! This very well... more appointed home had all the details one would expect from first-rate craftsmanship and in comfort. The location was perfect....near the beach, but off a quiet residential street which lends itself to some privacy. With plenty of activities available only minutes away, it's impossible not to enjoy your vaction no matter how many days and nights you decide to stay. Next time we rent this home...it will be for an extended period of time. less
— Anne T, Stayed 05/16/2014
Beachouse Stay In Pacific Grove
This house is absolutely spectacular...even better than the pictures on the rental site. Perfect location for walking along the ocean in Pacific Grove and enjoying ocean views from every room in the house. No close neighbors are also another plus Plenty of gathering space in... more the house, whether inside or outside. The master bedroom and bathroom are a treat in their own right and the master bedroom is a super place to snuggle in and watch the sunset with a glass of wine and your honey. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 04/11/2014
First home rental - exceed my high (Four Seasons, Mandarin, Rose
if you ever thought @ renting a house I would suggest starting with this one (our first); the views and finishes are top notch and much, much better than anything nearby (and I've stayed @ Pebble Beach before) areas for improvement: better linens/soft goods (mattresses,... more pillows, sheets, towels, etc); also, be careful backing out of the driveway - it's narrow (esp with a large SUV!) logistics were easy - an all-around tremendous vacation experience for our family of five (with kids) less

50th Birthday Bash!
The house completely lived up to our expections - the owner spared no expense in decor and amenities. Pictures of house looked great on website, but do not do the house justice when see it in person! Only issues we had were we could not... more locate any pot holders, kitchen toweles worked in a pinch and an extra fridge in the garage would be a great addition for extra water,sodas and beer! An added luxury would have been to have had a hot tub in the back patio...what a view, especially at sunset!! Price per night was very reasonable and we would definitely consider staying there again! Management was great to work with...very accomodating and responded to all of my email questions in a very timely manner! less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 03/18/2014
I'm so happy you had a great birthday at Beachouse! Rest assured we have re-stocked the home with pot holders - thank you for letting us know.
Beach access, Baby!
This is a beautiful home right near the beach for easy walking distance back and forth. The deck offers great views of the bay - bring binoculars so you can see the whale spouts! Beautiful, comfortable home to hang out in as well! Gourmet kitchen... more fun for cooking and hanging out to talk. Plenty of room to come together or get some time apart. Wonderful stay! A bit on the expensive side, but we decided to spoil ourselves with the proximity to the beach! :-) less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 02/24/2014
We had a great month at the Beachouse, it is a great property.
Great home in really good location 1block from the asilomar Beach. The downtown of Pacific Grove is close and getting to highway 1 is very easy. The kitchen and family hearth room is very nice. And the patio off the kitchen with gas grill is... more handy. We would have loved a fire pit and hot tub to really round out the enjoyment of the patio as it has great ocean views The bedrooms and baths are all great and the master bedroom views and deck are really nice. The two car garage is really beneficially when walking back from the beach. We would go back in a second and would for sure suggest this home to friends and family less

Fresh and modern take on a beach house
Our party of three couples thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The great room/kitchen and the master bedroom are the focal points with giant windows overlooking dunes and the crashing surf below. The master suite is unbelievable. I really had no reason to ever... more leave it. It did get cold up there over night because of all the windows but it made us sleep soundly and we didn't bother to change the thermostat. The house is well appointed with top of the line appliances and well-thought out plumbing and lighting. The kitchen itself was missing a few essential tools, which was incongruous considering the top end appliances. No matter; we made do. I meant to make a list of equipment to be added to the cupboards but it just didn't happen. We loved the location, just a short walk from asilomar Beach. The street itself is quiet and we had deer in the dunes outside the deck one morning. I absolutely loved the color of the dunes in the early morning - under the blue light of the winter sun the dunes almost looked like snow. And we had a great view of sunset from the great room windows. Everything was exactly as pictured on the website. The second bedroom was smaller than we expected, and there was some discussion as to whether the bed was really a queen or indeed a double. The third bedroom on the bottom floor is not discussed much on the website. On the ground floor as you enter the house from the garage door is a series of three small rooms. A bedroom fitted with twin beds, then a beautiful bathroom with walk in glass shower, then a small media room. It was almost a self-contained suite for our third couple who arrived to spend just a few nights during our trip. The rooms were fresh and clean, and our friends were very comfortable even though they had smaller beds than they would normally expect. Check in and out was seamless. We can't wait to return! less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 01/18/2014
Thank you so much for your comments. We've added more kitchen tools, Tupperware, etc. (if future guests notice anything missing we encourage them to call our 24 hour maintenance line - we'll have the items delivered!)
What a stay!
Breathtaking views, a stroll to asilomar, fabulous kitchen, sunsets out the window, what more could be said? An amazing house for entertaining guests.

Upscale and spacious house. Nice distant views of the ocean. 5 minute walk to the ocean. Hot tub would be a great addition. Will definitely come back.

The Beachhouse is located in a perfect vacation setting!
We loved the location and the house--the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed--excellent commercial appliances, 2 dishwashers and the large island was perfect. The view around the deck was lovely--deer parading thru the property in the early morning and evening--incredible sunsets! 24 hour service--... more if there was a problem--really made us feel that Monterey Rentals was on top of everything. less

Great family vacation
Beautiful home, less than a block from the beach. A shape, great features in the house. We loved the kitchen decoration. Great ocean and dune view from the house big windows. We had a great Thanksgiving, we prepared the meal in the house. The Freezer... more (newly installed Sub-Zero) initially did not work, however, we got a quick service to repair it. less

The house is great, quite with million dollar view. Two minutes walk to beach, so not far but avoid the traffic noise from the road along coast. It has everything you need and everything is at high end. Only complain has nothing to do with... more the house. The rental office entrance slop is too steep so when I drive in/out the parking lot of the office, bottom of my car keep scratching with the curve. less

The Beachhouse is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable - very contemporary and beautifully designed. There were five of us (Gals Golf trip) and we decided that since we had this beautiful home in a great location (1/2 block from ocean), we would buy groceries and... more eat there. We didn't want to leave. I would recommend it highly and have done so already. less

Carmel beach wedding.
My daughter was married in Carmel on the beach with the reception nearby after. The beachouse was perfect setting for her and the bridesmaids to get ready, as well as first look pictures at the beach nearby. The home was elegant and the deck provided... more marvelous views, including a whale spout and breech. Deer were nearby in the morning and late afternoon too. The setting was wonderful for a family gathering honoring the bride and groom the day after too. Only issues were slider screens with holes (new ones in garage), gfi not working, so neither did kitchen counter outlets, and BBQ LPG tank valve frozen, making BBQ unusable for planned afternoon usage. Otherwise, all was beautifully done, including open floor plan, gas fireplace, bar, gourmet kitchen, master bedroom and bath, bedroom with in suite bath, new interlocking stone driveway, and deck/patio areas. Would be perfect for several couples getaway. less

We cannot stress this enough: when our guests have problems we hope they will call our 24-hour line so we can fix the issue while they are here, instead of after they depart. We could have had a handyman at the house within 30 minutes to "unstick" the barbecue valve and reset the breaker to the GFI plugs.
Very nice place to get away.
The house has a great view of the ocean from the master bedroom and living room and all the bedrroms.Very clean and well kept.Nice and new looking.3 full bathrooms was great for our family. The extra TV room came in handy for cartoon time. We... more did find that it was rather skimpy in the kitchen with serving dishes or storage food containers to store food in the fridge. So bring your own. On the high side for the cost of the rental. Automatic blinds in the bedroom a must. The manually pullies was a pain especially for so many windows. Disappointed that there was no fire-pit as that was shown in the pictures when we rented the place.Back patio could use more furniture. Pretty bare out there. We did use the fireplace in the house everyday which was great. Altogether I would recommend.Enjoyed watching the deer everyday hang out around the house. Having the beach trail across the road was great!!! less

Beautiful and Comfortable
We stayed at this beach house for 3 days in July to aug 2. The home is beautiful and comfortable. We felt right at home. The kitchen, great room space is wonderful for the whole family to gather together and enjoy food and the view.... more The master bedroom is wonderful and roomie. We all slept very well in the beds. Our oldest daughter and her husband walked to the beach everyday and enjoyed how close it was. Location is great for day trips to Big Sur and Pebble Beach Golf and the 17 mile drive. less

Beautifully appointed, private spacious home made us feel like l
House was great overall. A couple of suggestions: 1. Replace the mattresses in the downstairs twin beds. Fine for kids but not adults. 2. Consider installing motorized system to raise and lower shades in master. So many windows make it a real pain, plus the... more system tends to jam, break. 3. Move the stereo tuner upstairs where the speakers are to make it easier to operate. less

Fabulous Beach Rental
Excellent rental in a fantastic location. Tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The house is in a quiet location and only a few hundred yards from the beach. To improve the property further I would increase the outdoor area and add a hot tub. The kitchen... more could also use some superior kitchenware. We also found the blinds a little flimsy and they were not adequate enough to block out light. Service from booking agent was excellent. less

Wow We did not want to leave!
What a great house. The photos were lovely, but we were a bit skeptical it would look that way as a rental property. We had several friends visit throughout the week, both local and across the country and everyone was totally amazed. Not only was... more the property beautiful, all furnishings were high quality and the best maintained rental property we have seen. The house was well stocked with all the needed items. I prepared many meals in the well stocked kitchen and was impressed with the variety of items available. Realizing I have accustom to a well stocked kitchen, the only recommendations would be serving pitchers (I purchased and left two Rubbermaid - but nice glass ones to serve ice tea/juice/sangria would be nice) and some small serving dishes for condiments or dips (something like a set of ramekins would fill this need). The bake ware was great, having cookie sheets was unexpected, and they doubled for large serving trays for salad as well. We did have a problem with the internet, and not only was it handled quickly and efficiently, but with utmost concern for our inconvenience. We were all very impressed. I was able to host a gathering for some of my local coworkers and the house perfectly accommodated a buffet dinner for 16 - with sufficient glassware and dishes. It could not have been more perfect (except for plastic pitchers for beverages!) We left the house to check into the Lodge at Pebble Beach for the weekend so we could play golf. The reoccurring comments for all those involved were "Who would ever thing that moving to Pebble Beach would be a down grade" Thanks for everything - truly a wonderful experience for all involved. Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone needing information on the property of your service. I am one extremely satisfied customer. less

We recently stayed for the week at this amazing home. The house is perfectly located, close to everything but also beautifully isolated in the dunes, close to the beach and easy drive into town. The great room was perfect for us - 2 little kids... more easily watched while cooking, etc. The beds were sooo comfortable, and the view from the master bedroom was amazing. Easy to get to the aquarium. Loved loved loved this house, will definitely stay again. less
