Best rentals for golfers: Here are 9 amazing places for your Monterey Peninsula buddies trip

January 15, 2020

The mere thought of the Monterey Peninsula triggers the Big Little Lies theme song, but it also provokes a strong mental image of beautiful golf courses. Pebble Beach is the area’s most sought-after public track, but nearby courses like Spyglass Hill, Pasatiempo, Spanish Bay, and Bayonet and Black Horse make the area a must-visit for all avid golfers.

But there’s more. Monterey’s rich history, stunning coastline and top-notch vineyards makes it an optimal vacation destination for anyone, especially golfers looking to round out their experience with an assorted array of activities. But look no further, we’ve collected nine rental properties that’ll make you want to book your Monterey adventure as soon as possible.

Historic Home on Pebble Beach


This French country home is located on the legendary 18th hole of Pebble Beach. The property has stunning gardens, a pool, and is only a short walk from the Lodge at Pebble Beach. The home has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and can sleep up to ten guests, which makes the $4,000 a night price tag slightly more digestible.

Price: $4,000 per night

Escape from Reality


This 1.7 acre property in the heart of the Del Monte Forest is just steps from Cypress Point. Warm up for your round on the 4,500 square foot, 9 hole putting green in the backyard before you walk over to the course.

Price: $1,500 per night

Cypress Point Views


This 3,800 square foot home can sleep up to 14 people, making it an ideal stay for large groups. It has panoramic ocean views and offers a sneak peak of both Cypress Point and Spyglass Hill.

Price: $1,250 per night

Saddle Mountain Ranch


This home is part of a campground, but eliminates the camping part (which I, personally, appreciate) because its a 5 bedroom, 2 bath home. Guests of Saddle Mountain Ranch have access to a pool, badminton, basketball, horseshoes, and a beautiful hiking trail.

Price: $553 per night

Mountain Paradise


This secluded retreat is tucked away in the Caramel Valley Mountains and is surrounded by vineyards which you can overlook while laying poolside. This private paradise is an ideal place to return to after a golf filled morning.

Price: $450 per night

Spanish Revival


This Spanish Revival home is right on the ocean and is walking distance to so many classic Monterey tourism sites like Pacific Grove, Cannery Row, Monterey Aquarium and Fisherman’s Wharf. It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home that can sleep up to 6 guests.

Price: $425 per night

The Seaside Chalet


I love the aesthetic of this quaint seaside cottage. It looks homey, charming, and completely updated. Perfect for your foursome, this home can sleep 4 and has a backyard fire pit to enjoy in the evenings.

Price: $250 per night

The Coastal Escape


Right off the Rio Del Mar State Beach, this chic coastal escape offers ocean views and modern finishings. Curl up on the deck and watch the waves crash on the shore before and after your rounds of golf.

Price: $219 per night

The Cozy Cottage


These farmhouse inspired cottages are great for couples, friends, and family who want to spend time together, but also have a private space where they can retreat. The property is also just 10 minutes from Monterey’s most famous attractions.
