We traveled to Monterey for my son's wedding. My parents had the downstairs apartment, and my brother's family and I took the upstairs unit. My nephew was so excited about the telescope and the seals lounging on the beach across the street! We could not have asked for a prettier view! Also just a short walk to the Aquarium. The weather was perfect the entire time, and the house was great! Very clean and well furnished. I told my family that if I win the lottery, I'll buy the house for them! We would definitely love to come back. The wedding was at the Bayonet and Blackhorse Golf Club and was really beautiful. The fog didn't roll in, and we were able to enjoy a gorgeous sunset! I would definitely recommend Bay Watch!

Baywatch is a beautiful property with an amazing view of Monterey Bay. Windows in full width of the house and balcony lent an unobstructed view of the bay and those beautiful crashing waves. We spent 4th of July weekend celebrating my husband's 50th birthday with a group of friends and family. Baywatch having 2 units accommodated us well. Large living area in the main unit with a large comfy sectional and again those beautiful views. It is within walking distance of cannery row and only a couple short blocks to the outlets. Our group strolled from Baywatch to The Monterey Plaza Hotel and back... it was a beautiful walk. Plenty of parking which was unexpected. Our guests are already asking..."when can we go again"? Montereyrentals was very easy to work with and we give Baywatch 5 stars!

Great place. Location and view are amazing! Would have given an excellent rating except they charge the $1,000 security deposit to your credit card and it took a month before they issued the credit. So basically unless you want to pay your credit card company interest you need to pay the security deposit and wait for the credit the following month. Have never had that happen before. Usually a hold is just applied. Read more
We share your opinion of Baywatch - the view doesn't get much better than that! We charge security deposits 7 days before arrival and refund them within two weeks of departure (you departed on 3/30, and your card was credited 4/14). However, we've recently instituted a $49 Accidental Damage Safeguard as an option to security deposits for stays under 30 days. Please visit us again soon!

Perfect location and amazing home to experience Monterey

This home has huge windows and a deck that overlook a beach with seals and waves crashing on the rocks. Can't think of a better way to start and end the day. Kyle and the Monterey Rental team made payment and checking in/out a snap. The home is very well maintained and close to everything. I cannot recommend this property highly enough and would love to visit again soon!

Wonderful View! Even an Elephant Seal!
Left on 01/26/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | PapaJ
We had a great (4) sibling & spouses reunion. We even saw an Elephant Seal on the beach, which is not very common in this area. Also, there were lots of harbor seals at this beach/cove.The view was outstanding. Great location for walking to the aquarium, Cannery Row & Fisherman's Wharf.
The home was very clean and nicely appointed. Being a high end custom home builder, I did notice that much of the bath and kitchen fixtures were a bit low budget but were in good working condition and nice looking. The only three complaints were: 1) The Xfinity controls would not allow you use the "guide". 2) Garage door opener did not have a remote for our car... and the mounted remote keypad opener would only open the garage door, not close it. You had to go inside the garage and actually hold the button continuously until door was closed then go back thru the entry and back into your car. 3) Back patio was not very cozy or clean and the only BBQ I saw was a mini (tailgate) charcoal Weber. Definitely not big enough for an 8 person rental. 4) The neighbor's outside light on the north side of home shines very brightly into the the two bedrooms (upstairs and downstairs)all night. Felt like I was sleeping during daylight hours. I would recommend some "black out" curtains or blinds to resolve this issue. The current blinds are two thin and block very little light.(Three stars on "Comfort" because of this issue.
None of these issues spoiled our visit. We were very happy with this vacation rental and would rent it again. (I might bring some cardboard or something to cover the bedroom windows, haha)
Watch for whales from your living room!

We stayed at Bay Watch for a week after Christmas and had glorious weather.
Bay Watch is wonderful house in a fantastic location. We were able to spot whales from our living room! The house is well stocked with supplies and very comfortable. The unit downstairs was a perfect place for the teens to get away from us adults when needed.
Bay Watch is across the street from a protected marine sanctuary where you can watch the elephant seals and sea lions lying on the beach. It's within walking distance from the aquarium and a grocery store.
Check in was super easy; Kyle at Monterey Rentals was very helpful and congenial. Bay Watch is definitely a place we would book again.
