3853 Ocean Spray - One Block to the Beach! Beautifully Updated Beach Cottage!

Welcome to Ocean Spray! This vacation home sleeps up to 6 guests.

Set in one of Monterey’s most unique neighborhoods, this 937-square-foot bungalow is just one block from Del Monte Beach. A one-way street leads up and around a hill with homes lining streets in between, so through traffic is minimal. Walls washed in soft blues and sandy-toned wood floors give this 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath home a decidedly beach vibe.

The rooms of this charming bungalow are arranged in a U-shape, centered around a covered courtyard patio that is accessed from the living room, kitchen/dining room and master bedroom.

The living room features board and batten walls and is comfortably appointed with leather furnishings in hues of blue and beige. The centerpiece is a gas fireplace with brick surround, handsome wood mantel with a 70” HDTV mounted above.

A hallway leads to 2 of the home’s bedrooms, each furnished with a queen bed, nightstands with lamps, a dresser, large closet and ceiling fan/light. Ample windows invite in the natural light.

Bathrooms are conveniently located to all the bedrooms. A cleverly laid out and efficient design includes a half-bath with commode, vanity and sink at each end, with a shared shower-over-tub in the center. Doors at each of the entrances can be closed to ensure privacy.

The roomy master bedroom opens onto the second half-bath. The lovely space features a queen bed with nightstands and lamps on either side, dresser, 55” HDTV, closet and sliding glass doors that open onto the covered patio.

There’s definitely a retro feel to the kitchen, equipped with a vintage 4-burner Wedgewood gas stove, Kenmore refrigerator/freezer, Bosch dishwasher, microwave and all the small appliances you’ll need for a comfortable stay.

A wood dining table with 4 chairs and a bench seats 6 and is located conveniently between the kitchen and sliding glass doors that lead to the patio. Here, you’ll find a Weber grill plumbed with natural gas and comfortable seating that provides a shaded spot for relaxing after a day of exploring. The fenced in property offers a variety of other sitting spots on the elongated cement patio that stretches around the back of the home.

Upon your arrival, you’ll find a complimentary bottle of wine, cheese and crackers and a supply of coffee, tea and condiments for the first morning. A welcome book and information on local attractions and activities provide all the details. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available if you need assistance.

The attached garage houses the washer and dryer and has ample room for one car. Driveway parking for one car and on street parking is available.

Families with young children will love the close proximity to a small playground just steps away. This property is a short stroll to Del Monte Beach that stretches for miles in both directions. Walk the beach or the 18-mile Monterey Bay Recreation Trail to the commercial pier where you can watch as the catch of the day is unloaded and purchase fresh seafood. There are classic dining options on the pier and nearby. Follow the path around the marina to Custom House Plaza, Old Fishermen’s Wharf and historic downtown Monterey. A little further down is the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium.

It’s just a short drive to charming Peninsula communities including Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Del Rey Oaks, Seaside, Sand City and Marina. Shops, restaurants that span the cuisines of the world, bakeries, brew pubs, wine tasting rooms, cafes and grocery stores are within a mile-or-so walk or a short drive away. A Farmer’s Market can be found most days of the week, nearly year-round.

Hiking opportunities abound at the Fort Ord National Monument, located on the former Fort Ord military base. It is home to 44 species of rare plants and animals and more than 86 miles of trails that can be explored on foot, bike or on horseback.

A small, well-behaved dog is welcome with owner approval and additional fee.
