2018 Readers' Choice Award for Monterey Bay Property Management

MontereyRentals.com Policies - by checking “I have read and agree to these policies,” or by completing this reservation, accepting keys or taking occupancy to the Premises, I signify my acceptance of and agreement with the policies herein.  

Check in time is 3 pm.  Check out time is 11 a.m.


This Agreement may be cancelled up to 60 days prior to arrival. The full amount of the rental is due within 60 days of arrival and is non-refundable after that date. The down payment, made at the time of the reservation, is completely non-refundable.

A $35 change fee will be charged to the credit card used to make the original reservation for any change to an existing reservation.


The Premises are located in a residential neighborhood that includes both short-term guests and year-round residents who enjoy living in a tranquil environment. Maximum occupancy rates are strictly enforced.

Special events and/or large parties, such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, birthday/anniversary celebrations, are strictly prohibited, and are a violation of the rental property owner's rental permit. A small dinner party or gathering for no more than one and one half times the number of guests who are accommodated at the Premises is permitted.

Note: If you are planning an event during your stay, please be sure you have arranged for a venue other than the Premises (contact us for suggestions of alternate venues). If you did not understand these policies when you booked your reservation and wish to cancel your stay, please contact us within 24 hours of making your reservation, and we will fully refund any payment made and cancel any future obligation.

Security Deposits and Accidental Damage Safeguard

Security deposits (if any) are charged to the credit card used to secure the reservation seven days prior to arrival and returned seven days after departure, or an itemized statement indicating the basis for and the disposition of the deposit or any part of it will be provided.

Security deposits, if any, will be held in the trust account of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals. All or any portion of the security deposit, upon termination of occupancy, may be used as reasonably necessary, to (i) pay any sums still due; (ii) repair damage, excluding ordinary wear and tear, caused by the occupants, by any guests, or by any licensees of the occupants; (iii) clean the Premises; (iv) replace or return personal property or appurtenances.

Accidental Damage Safeguard (“ADS”) is a non-refundable fee for which Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals assumes the liability associated with minor accidental damages to the rented premises or its contents during occupancy relative to this reservation. ADS is not insurance, nor should it be interpreted as such. ADS allows Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals to waive occupants’ responsibility for reported accidental damage up to a maximum aggregate amount of $1,500.00.

ADS becomes effective upon check-in (and may not be purchased after check-in) and terminates upon departure of the occupants or at 11 am on the last day of the rental term (“check-out time”), whichever occurs first. Unreported damages, non-accidental damages, excluded damages, or damages exceeding $1,500.00 dollars are the sole responsibility of the occupants. The purchase of ADS does not in any way negate occupants’ responsibility to care for the Premises as if it were occupants’ own home. The cost to repair damage attributable to occupants or occupants’ invitees due to intentional acts, willful misconduct, gross negligence, abuse of the Premises, violation of these rental policies, or animals will not be paid under the ADS, and remain the responsibility of the occupants.

Damage must be reported to Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals prior to “check-out time.” The ADS applies only to loss or damage to the rented premises or its contents. The applicability of ADS to damaged property (and any determination of the extent of damage and/or the cost of repairs thereof) shall be in the sole and absolute discretion of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals.

Note:  We understand that accidents happen. You obviously do, too, since you have made this purchase—so please do not hesitate to contact us if accidental damage occurs during your stay. We want to know about it, so that 1) your ADS is applicable, and 2) we can make repairs for both you and future guests.

Bathed in natural light, this spacious room has golden oak floors, two sofas, a TV, bistro table, and a game table that seats four.

Two bedrooms and a cozy office adjoin the upstairs family room.The first has a Queen bed and a powder room with a vanity sink set in a seagreen glass mosaic countertop.

Downstairs, there are two gathering places: the living room, with a sectional facing the fireplace, and a cozy sitting room with a large flat screen TV. The kitchen has granite countertops, knotty pine cabinetry, and stainless appliances; the dining area seats twelve at two separate tables.

Two first floor bedrooms (one Queen, and another with a Queen and a trundle bed) share a bath with granite countertops, a scalloped sink, and a tub/shower. The third downstairs bedroom features a King bed, double closets, and a private bath with a tub/shower.

This five bedroom, 3.5 bath home is just two blocks from the beach and is gated from the street. There's a play area in the backyard under the large, mature oaks.

Nice place. Sunset drive is a pretty busy street with quite a bit of vehicle traffic noise and across the street is a maintainence yard with trucks that start up pretty early.Also the upper bedroom has no window coverings and early morning light will bother late sleepers.Lots of room and very clean. Some of the bedroom carpets could be cleaned

Fabulous Beach House for a Family Vacation

We had a great time in Pacific Grove at the Sunset Drive home. First let me say that I had a great experience working with Monterey Rentals. The folks at Monterey rentals were very responsive to any questions I had and were just really helpful in every way. I would definitely rent from them again and recommend them to others. This home is in a great central location. The layout was perfect for a large group, there were 11 of us, of all ages from 6 to 68. The house has multiple common areas which were great as we had kids from 6 - 15 so some could be playing a game in one area while another could find a quiet space away from the game to read and plenty of room for the grownups to hang out and chat as well. The kitchen was well appointed and had every implement we could possibly need. The large octagon tables off the kitchen each sat 8 so plenty of seating for all to eat at the same time. We spent a lot of time in this area chatting and all hanging out and playing some family games. Really a wonderful layout ! My only suggestion would be regarding the back yard. There is a table with 4 chair (no cushions) and that is it. This house definitely needs an updated seating area in the back yard that would seat more people. All of us would have liked to be able to sit out in the back yard at the same time. The house accommodates so many people it would be nice if the backyard was more inviting to sit in for all. When we left we all agreed we want to come back again soon!! Thanks again to Monterey Rentals and Michelle for making it so easy for us!

We stayed here for four nights with our party of and really loved it. The home was very spacious and clean and is in a nice location. A short walk from the beach! This home is across from a wooded area so we had deer in yard almost every day. The kids really liked that. We liked that we could park behind the house and not on the road as it gave us a little more privacy. There is some industry close by and the road is busy but once inside the house, you could not hear it at all. The size of the home and the privacy it afforded meant that we got some excellent R&R. We really enjoyed using the well appointed kitchen and making our breakfast and dinners. There is enough space to seat everyone in the kitchen which was great.

Wonderful Large Home

Reviewed by Cynthia

Date 07/20/2019

This house was exactly what I was looking for - large - spacious - and perfect for chilling for our group of 12 going in between various events relating to my Son's wedding. I appreciated that as long as we were not having parties, we were allowed to have others gather at our place. We were respectful of the neighborhood and enjoyed daily walks to the beach to see the sun set as well as the easy proximity to the grocery stores, Big Sur and the Memory Garden in Monterey.

Everything was in working order - dishwasher, washer and dryer, bathrooms and bedrooms were well appointed with plenty of towels, blow dryer, soap, shampoo (if you don't bring your own), toilet paper. Loved the large griddle for making eggs and pancakes. We even used the lawn chairs to take to the beach and 1 day we used the charcoal grill to make burgers. This place had everything we needed.

One point - not necessarily negative. There is a lot of glass in this house (kitchen tables, end tables, decorations, both kitchen tables set with glass napkin holders, plates and wine glasses). There were only cloth napkins. We immediately put away all of the wine glasses and napkin rings so nothing would get broken. Overall I get that they are going for the first WOW impression, but I just wanted it all put away.

The house was beautiful!! Very spacious and well equipped. I stay here with my Husband, Mother, a friend, and my Son and his family.

The upstairs is very light and bright and a nice view of the ocean. The kitchen was well equipped. The location is amazing since my favorite beach is Asilomar State beach.

A couple of suggestions. The furniture in the TV room downstairs is not real comfortable. Recliners would be my suggestion, especially for the mature guest. Also shades or blinds are needed because of the glare on the TV during the daylight hours. I spend my time walking during the day, but my husband did not so the glare was an issue with him. The refrigerator filter needed changing. But so does mine at home......

The deer in the backyard of the morning was an absolute bonus. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Id definitely rent this home again. The process to book is extremely easy. I sure appreciated that!

Our family of 7 adults, 3 children and one baby had a great stay at the house. There was plenty of room and plenty of space to get away if you wanted. The house has been updated on the inside and everything was clean and comfortable.

A beautiful beach is within easy walking distance.

You should be aware that Sunset Drive is a busy main street, but that only means that the kids need to be kept in the back yard as opposed to the front. There was no noticeable noise from the street.

Overall, a great family home! We'd rent it again in a minute!

This place worked perfect for our family of 12: 4 adult couples, 4 kids. Bonus: we were greeting by a young family of deer that walked through the yard shortly after we arrived. The place had lots of favorite places to gather in the home: around the large dining table that fit all 12 of us, we didn’t even need to use the second table next to it, then upstairs, and down in the living areas, plus a sunny sitting room. The home had lots of natural light throughout. Beautiful, clean hardwood floors throughout, updated comfortable furniture, cozy afghans in each area, just a comfy place overall. Well stocked kitchen, we used the Weber barbecue one night without a hitch. If I could complain about anything, it was that we couldn’t figure out how to use the cable TV, but who wants to spend time in Monterrey in front of a TV? The kids did manage to run some DVD’s in the downstairs living room. I have to mention that it says the place is “a block from the beach” – not true, more like over ¾ of a mile, not walk-able with little ones. There was lots of room to park for our 5 cars behind the house, and nice that we could close the gate at night. We wish we could transport this home wherever we gather each year!!

This house was in a nice location & was very spacious. We had a large group of 10 so the size and bedroom situation worked out well. The house is extremely dated & not child friendly in any sense. The furniture was mostly ok but lacks serious style & attractiveness. The whole house needs a major overhaul.There is an over abundance of glass bric-a-brac & truly odd decor items everywhere in the home. Both dining tables were glass topped as were most of the coffee & side tables. Very unappealing!The towels smelled like mildew & there definitely was not enough of them. Using white towels you can bleach would be much better or just some good fabric softener. The large appliances were fine. The small ones such as toaster looked like they were out of the Stone Age.Dishes are adequate although extremely dated as well. The master bedroom was large however there is a wall of west facing Windows with not a single blind or curtain. I did not appreciate having glaring daylight wake us every morning of our vacation - complete lack of consideration for your vacation renters. All beds were mostly comfortable but the sheets were definitely cheap & flimsy. Blankets were comfortable and ample. Lightbulbs out in several locations, had to call for a broom, no shades on windows in street side living areas.The driveway was extremely difficult to maneuver for more than one care - beware!!All in all I/we were happy with location & size of home. Everything else needs serious review as it made the home very uncomfortable.I have stayed in numerous vacation homes - this would be on the bottom of my list.

Manager Response

Thank you for taking time to let us know about your stay. We value the opinion of all of our guests and apologize that the Sunset Drive home did not meet your expectations.  We attempt to offer the most house for the most reasonable price possible. This is a 4,500 square foot home (5 bdrm./3.5 baths) that sleeps 12, located a block from the beach. Rates start at $499/night. This is the best vacation rental value in our inventory.

We’ve alerted the housekeepers about the issue with the towels and linens, and passed the review on to the owner, who is taking your complaints very seriously and will make every effort to rectify the issues you raised.

While the driveway will only accommodate one car at a time, there is garage parking for two cars and paved parking for two additional cars behind the house at the end of the driveway. It is possible to back out of the garage and turn around in order to drive headfirst out of the driveway.

The windows on the ocean side of the property are uncovered to enhance the view from the second story. Early risers will enjoy the morning sun streaming in the windows of the master bedroom.  Late sleepers will want one of the other bedrooms, all of which have window coverings.

The owners of the properties we represent put glass tops on their tables and wood surfaces to protect them. This makes clean up easy, and prevents accidents from wet glasses or hot pans on wood surfaces.

We make every effort to make sure that the photos of the properties we advertise accurately represent what exists at the property. Please look carefully at the photos, and call our office with any questions you may have about the accommodation.

Sometimes it was only 4 of us in the small den and sometimes upstairs in the great / sunroom, well furnished with three couches, a bistro table with a view of the ocean and even more often around the large glass tables watching our cooks prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen. Walks to the beach, a visit to Carmel and the longer drive to Big Sur were enjoyed by all. And did I mention the Fishwife restaurant a 4 minute walk? Asilomar a 10 minute walk.
