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.

We stayed here for a few nights in late June and really enjoyed our stay. The house was sunny and clean. It had everything we needed and more than enough space for two people. We loved the ocean views from the balcony and welcomed the sea breezes through open doors and windows. The location couldn't be beat -- being less than a block from the ocean, surrounded by scenic coastal trails, within walking distance to great restaurants, and a short drive to Monterey, Carmel, and the Pacific Coast Highway. I would stay here again.

Dive, kayak, or stand-up paddle in the deep blue waters of Monterey Bay. Hike, bike, or stroll along the coastal trail… and then retreat to this contemporary beachouse.

Two bedrooms downstairs (one has a Queen bed, the other has two Twins) share a full bath with a gorgeous etched glass countertop and double vessel sinks. A spiral staircase leads to the second floor living area, with a fireplace, a flat screen TV, and a second full bath.

High clerestory windows frame blue skies above the modern galley kitchen, with stainless appliances and travertine countertops. And then there's the upper patio: with views of the Bay, this is where you'll toast the end of a perfect day, accompanied by the mesmerizing sounds of the surf.

We spent a few days here with our adult kids. The space was perfect for our family. It was clean and well appointed. The location was fabulous! Walk across the street and you have amazing waves crashing ashore and seals playing in them. We took walks every day. Drive to the peninsula and see the sunset on a clear evening. Close to Carmel, Big Sur and Point Lobos too. Had a ball!

The Mermaid property was magical. The décor was so adorable, very beachy and relaxing. The view of the ocean was awesome; even better was the short walk to the ocean and the nature trail. Spent the mornings watching sea lions and otters while drinking my coffee. Proximity to the aquarium and Cannery Row was great as well. I'd highly recommend this property!

The unit was absolutely beautiful and in a terrific location. The unit was updated with modern amenities, fun beachy art, glass bowl sinks in the bathrooms, and a gas fireplace which made it very cozy on foggy mornings . The beds were very comfortable. It was one block from the beach and a 5 minute walk to Lovers Point and the Beach House restaurant. The check in and out process was extremely easy. We would definitely go back and are recommending it to all our friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This house is beautifully constructed with lovely amenities. It is wonderfully located across street from ocean with two partial views (another house in front of it). Bathrooms are gorgeous, very clean, bright, and colorful. Attention to detail was obviously taken when it came to small things like fixtures. Nice appliance with large refrigerator. Great spot for a romantic getaway in a very quiet neighborhood. Spiral staircase is nicely placed and adds a certain elegance to the house. I would advise future tenants to be strong, active, and healthy as the bedrooms are downstairs and living accommodation upstairs. A small car will be best for this location as I drove a SUV and was challenged when it came to parking. The one car garage is not equipped for anything bigger than a mid-size vehicle.

Rating this house 4 stars out of 5 because master bed is only a queen size and the mattress was kind of hard. Making it a king size with softer mattress (room has the space) would make all the difference. Also, it was unfortunate that when we arrived, we were was unable to access house due to the city paving the only road to get there (one way street). We were not made aware of this prior to arrival. We had to wait and additional hour before we could enjoy the rental. We purposely arrived early so we could enjoy location from beginning to end. Also, on our departure date, the water was turned off and we did not have water to take showers. We understand that the city has work to do everywhere but it would be great for tenants to know so they can adjust. No fun driving 2.5 hours home to take shower when we paid for such a beautiful rental. Bottom line, please be aware of activities such as these that will have huge impact on tenants stay and opinion. The Mermaid is still a beautiful house.

Manager Response

Thank you for your lovely review of Mermaid. We deeply apologize for the inconveniences you suffered during your stay - please contact us to discuss how we can best compensate you. Unfortunately we did not receive advance notice from the City about the paving project, so we were unable to warn you about the road closure and service interruption. If we had known we would have offered to move you to another property - a vacation without water is no vacation!

As far as the bedding situation, there is space for a King, but the owner feels that a larger bed would overwhelm the space. And as for firmness, we’re in a bit of a Goldilocks situation: what one guest considers “too firm” another calls “too soft” and a third thinks is "just right.” Our 24 hour maintenance staff would have been happy to deliver a mattress topper if they had been called - our guest’s comfort is our first priority.

Great space, quiet location

We visited the weekend of August 25th 2017 and stayed two nights. The location was great for quick access to the ocean and walking trail. We walked into town Saturday and had a great time. The house is clean, modern and a great value. There are partial ocean views from the patio area and the kitchen.

We loved our stay! Very clean and nice property less than a block from the ocean and away from any busy traffic. Balcony was lovely, lighting in the home was gorgeous. Perfect size for a couple or a family of 4. We stayed with our pet and he loved it too! We were able to go right out to the walking trail along the ocean every morning for a jog. You are only about a mile walk to Canery Row area which was nice. Overall pleased and would stay again.

Second Floor Is A Treat

Reviewed by Mark

Date 06/27/2017

The best part about this rental is the upstairs which is a large open space with a kitchen, living room and dining room with an outdoor porch. Also on the 2nd floor is a very bright and airy full bathroom. The 1st floor master bedroom is a little dark but the bathroom downstairs is very nice with 2 sinks and a shower. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and is also connected to the bathroom - very nice set up.The pictures are a bit misleading. The house is in an alley and the view of the bay is obstructed by another rental that actually has a full view. The unit does need a little more attention paid to the details. The kitchen lacks a full set of cookware, there were cobwebs on the windows both inside and outside and the red trim paint around the doors comes off when you touch it. There is very little landscaping and the touch-up painting inside is obvious. One of the hinges on ottoman in the living room is broken and another living room cushioned chair would be nice. For the price of this rental the little details should be taken care of but the upstairs living space really is a treat.

Manager Response

Thank you for pointing out those details! Cobwebs have been cleaned, cookware has been supplemented, and the ottoman has been repaired.

Stayed at Mermaid for nearly 30 days during my move to Monterey. Could not have been happier with the place. If you love sun, there is plenty that comes into this residence. Was even able to bring the dog (wish cats could too given no carpet in the house). I would have to say the heated bathroom floors and few hundred feet from the activity trail/ocean top my list!
