BOOK NOW! on Monterey Rentals Website - We thought we'd seen the ultimate beach house… and then we saw Sea Spray! With only powdery sand dunes between you and the ocean, you’ll start relaxing the moment you step into this luxurious 2,000+ sq. ft. beachfront Mediterranean. The sounds of the surf will dissolve your cares by day and lull you to sleep at night…and wait till you see the views: on a clear day you can see the entire curve of Monterey Bay, from Moss Landing to Santa Cruz.
From the arched entry to the alabaster scones, no detail has been overlooked. The living room has a bar and comfortable seating around a gas fireplace with 55" Smart TV above (not shown). Radiant heated, sand-colored stone floors are warm underfoot, the Mission-style furniture includes a hammered copper table that seats 8, and the custom inlaid mural in the kitchen depicting early Monterey is a spectacular piece of "art history."
The kitchen has everything a gourmet could ask for, from a professional mixer to a coffee frother for your morning latte: granite countertops with a cream-colored travertine backsplash, burled walnut cabinetry, Viking appliances (including a four-burner gas range)—there's even a wine cooler in the adjoining garage and whole-house water filtration.
Wall-to-wall glass (with motorized blinds) frames the ever-changing sea views in the master suite (with a King bed and a wall-mounted TV). The en suite bath features an oval Jacuzzi tub, a walk-in steam shower, two vanities topped with black glass, subway-tiled walls inlaid with iridescent stone, a separate toilet compartment, and a large closet. Three guest rooms—two with Queens and one with a twin daybed—share a second bath with a pedestal sink and a shower lined in lustrous marble.
From the sunny protected patio to the fire pit for relaxing under the stars, the living is definitely easy in this brand new beach house. Pick up fresh seafood to barbecue at Fisherman's Wharf—or just pick up the binoculars and check out the sea life from your living room. Until it's time for another spectacular sunset, that is.
This prime location offers easy access to everything, starting with the stunning beauty of Del Monte Beach. Walk uninterrupted for miles, picking up sea glass and sand dollars, while spotting dolphins, seals, otters, and even whales venturing close to shore. An easy 20-minute walk on the beach takes you to the shops and restaurants of downtown Monterey. Or hop on the house-supplied bikes for a leisurely three-mile ride on the coastal trail to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. For a truly memorable ride, stay on the bike trail past Asilomar Beach onto world-famous 17-Mile Drive, where you’ll pass several championship golf courses on your way to a well-deserved break at the Pebble Beach clubhouse.
Carmel shopping and dining are a ten-minute drive away, and the Santa Lucia Highlands provide a wonderful day trip to tour top-rated wineries. The unbeatable coastal panoramas of Big Sur begin within a 20-minute drive—but considering the views from Sea Spray—you may never get further than Monterey!

I recommend this house without reservation. This is the perfect house in the perfect location. It sits perched above the Pacific Ocean. You can sit in the living room and watch the waves breaking, the pelicans flying over the surf, and the incredible sunsets. Better yet, the beach is right outside the back door. The house is located just a short walk down the beach from downtown Monterey, where you can satisfy all of your more urban needs, with great restaurants, the pier, fresh seafood, or martini bars if that is your thing. If your interest is in active recreation, the beach is wide and long, there is a bike path for miles in both directions and golf courses (some of the best in the world) are a short drive away. The property owners have designed the house for maximum comfort. All of the bedrooms are great and the kitchen is incredibly well-stocked.

This open floor plan is great for entertaining a group of friends or family. It welcomes you as soon as you step inside. Lots of huge windows to gaze the beautiful scenery from inside or take the short walkway down to the beach and join in the fun. How can you resist such a relaxing spot that is just a short walk to entertainment and restaurants? Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset on the beach. Ahhh!
If you love an ocean view, this is the house for you!

This is truly a special house in a very special spot. Our jaws dropped when we entered the house and looked out at the expanse of blue sea spreading out below. The whole back of the house opens out to this view, including the beautifully appointed living/dining/kitchen area and the master bedroom suite. The master bath by the way is amazing, with a gorgeous tub situated to take in the scenery!
My husband and I and another couple spent many fun-filled days exploring the area. No need to get in the car for many adventures, including bike rides or walks to town, long strolls on the beach, kayaking among the seals, an afternoon at the aquarium, and a memorable bike ride along 17 mile drive with a stop for lunch at Pebble Beach. This inspired us to try out one of the other amazing golf courses in the area - it was hard to choose! - and we enjoyed some great meals together at local restaurants.
Our best meals, though, were right at the house - such a comfortable place to cook and hang out and enjoy a cocktail at sunset...or breakfast on the beach. The house is very well-equipped and super clean and comfortable - you can tell that the owners put care into everything.
A perfect base for a wonderful California vacation!

We were delighted with our stay at the Monterey beach house. The open living space and bedrooms were comfortable and luxurious; it was so exciting to walk out the door and onto the beach, to ride the miles of bike paths and rent kayaks in Monterey. Nothing like having coffee in the morning and watching the dolphins play just off shore in your own 'back' yard. It was a wonderful, relaxing vacation- we will definitely be back!
This is a comfortable, relaxing home in a beautiful environmen

We have had the opportunity to stay in this home on several occasions
and simply walking through the front door makes us feel like we are on vacation. It is a beautiful residence with extraordinary views of Monterey Bay. The beach is only steps away from the house and from there it is an easy walk to the pier, restaurants, and shopping. A short flat bike ride takes you to Cannery Row and The Monterey aquarium. An additional bonus is the easy accessibility to World Class golf, fishing, scuba diving and boating.
The home is lovely. It is decorated in the style of Old Monterey and it truly suits the home. It sleeps 6 comfortably but a 7th person could be easily accommodated. The kitchen is ready for any type of cooking and entertainment. It is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pots and pans and a few fun gadgets that make preparing a meal a pleasure.

This Monterey home has every amenity anyone would want in a vacation property, with the top of the list being a gorgeous view and incredibly easy access to the beach. Relax, hike, bike, walk, shop, play, sunbathe, and enjoy all Monterey and the surrounding areas have to offer. I would highly recommend this house. The owners are very accommodating and want your visit to be perfect.

Luxury and comfort at the beach, Sea Spray is elegant with every amenity. The back drop of the Pacific Ocean on your door-step only adds to the beauty of this gorgeous place. There are so many things to do in Monterrey, too, if relaxing to the sounds of the ocean by the fire pit isn't enough.

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful home on a few occasions. From the beautiful wooden inlay on the kitchen cabinets to the gorgeous master bedroom this house could be in a magazine. Of course the best part is the majestic ocearn view and the location. Roll out of bed and walk down the short path to the beach! Also you can walk to all of Monterey's main attractions. I would highly recommend this rental!
