Why rent a vacation home in Monterey Bay

A few hours drive south of San Francisco and San Jose, Monterey Bay boats beaches, golfing, and culture. The bay curves down from Santa Cruz in the north to Monterey in the south, with all varieties of beach towns in-between. Many visitors to Monterey Bay prefer to rent a vacation home for their stay. Vacation homes offer space, flexibility, and privacy, and many of Monterey Bay’s rentals are in impeccable locations, often right on the beach. Many of the vacation homes here offer unique experiences that allow visitors to feel as if they live in Monterey Bay. Here are some of the things you can look forward to while staying in Monterey Bay:

  • View Marine Life at the Aquarium With over two million visitors annually, the Monterey Bay Aquarium maintains a national reputation. With an ideal location right in downtown Monterey's Cannery Row, the aquarium features over 600 marine species and numerous educational live shows. Don't forget to take in the scenic views and natural wildlife in the aquarium's outdoor area.
  • Experience Thrilling Rides with Oceanfront Views The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is the oldest amusement park in California and one of the only amusement parks on a beachfront. Partake in classic rides, outdoor and indoor carnival games, and delicious food. Bring your bathing suit to catch some rays. Concerts and other fun events take place year round.
  • Drive Through Famous Landmarks Located just outside of Monterey, the 17-Mile Drive is a unique opportunity to experience famous forests, beaches, and mansions in one scenic winding road. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of many viewing points, and don't miss the most famous landmark, the Lone Cypress Tree.
  • Defy Gravity Drive away from Santa Cruz's beaches and into the redwood forest for a one of a kind adventure! The Mystery Spot is a natural magnetic gravity hill that causes mysterious optical illusions. Take a tour for an astonishing and thrilling experience, and explore California's beautiful redwoods on the property's hiking trails.
  • Look for Whales The Monterey Bay is full of whales, including the Humpback, Gray, and Blue whales species. There are whales to spot year round, and you can catch tours led by Marine Biologists and other experts from Santa Cruz and Monterey. These tours offer incredible views of whales at play, along with other local marine life.
