Recent Monterey Bay vacation rental reviews

This Vacasa rental residence was in a very convenient area for both Carmel and Monterey. We visited off-season and were able to take advantage of the backyard, fire pit, the cozy fireplace and very comfortable beds. The entire house was very clean when we arrived and things were very easy to locate as we needed them, the kitchen was well equipped for us to make breakfast and a few snacks as well as store our own provisions in the refrigerator. We found a wonderful breakfast restaurant, the Butter House, close by which we highly recommend. Although we never visited the local beaches, we were able to go to 17 mile drive and view the spectacular ocean cliffs and beaches. I would definitely return to this for Vacasa home on my next visit.

Updated kitchen, bathrooms, and furnishings. HVAC good, clean throughout, including kitchen flatware and appliances, walking distance to beach, covered parking for two cars in private garage, well furnished, and enjoyed the art work.
Shirley F. | Jan 2023
Had everything we needed for a great few days even with the rain. Would definitely stay again. Comfy beds & kitchen had everything we needed.

With natural splendors and one-of-a-kind local attractions, it’s hard to go wrong with Monterey Bay vacation rentals.

From sandy beaches to Spanish missions, there’s no end of things to see.
