Why Monterey Bay guests love staying with TurnKey...

"We love the Pajaro Dunes and have been there before. A great location! This home was fantastic. It was right on the beach with the most beautiful views. We couldn't help but take a ton of pictures. The house itself was clean and exactly what we needed. My oldest son is in a wheel chair and the main level and ramp to get to it made for an easy stay. My 2 littles loved playing on the beach and hanging on the deck. As parents, the easy access to the beach was the best. No hassle and very enjoyable. Turnkey was wonderful to work with. Friendly, quick to respond and available for whatever we needed. The only problem we had was a security guard approached us the day before we left and told us we were accused of riding a blue scooter which was not us. He seemed convinced it was us and said someone told him so. We did not have any scooters, bikes or anything of that nature and our kids are too young to be unsupervised. We never asked what the problem was with the scooter or the rule that was broken but maybe avoid bringing a scooter when visiting. However, that had nothing to do with the house itself or Turnkey. Just a little annoying and in addition him asking us when we were leaving and that left a bad feeling. Thank goodness it was the last full day there. Overall the best spring trip and we plan to do it every year from now on!"..."

Large Beachfront Home w/ Wraparound Deck
"We had a great stay at this beautiful home and enjoyed walks to the beach, great location, very comfortable beds, and gorgeous sunset views in this tasteful home. The only minor issue was some ants in the kitchen. This didn’t affect us much and we would certainly stay again."..."

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.

Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Monterey Bay team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Monterey Bay to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Monterey Bay house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Monterey Bay team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Monterey Bay vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Monterey Bay vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Monterey Bay vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Monterey Bay, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
