Where can I find all of your long-term rental listings?

All of our long-term rental listings may be viewed here. As soon as our agents list a property for rent, they post it on our website. They do the same when we are notified of an upcoming vacancy by any of our current residents.

Yes. Please sign up for our Long Term Rentals Alert and you will receive a weekly email of all the new  rental listings.

How soon should I begin my search for a rental home on the Monterey Peninsula?

One to two months in advance is usually sufficient time to find something that will meet your needs. If you have specific qualifications for your next home, such as hardwood floors or a wood-burning fireplace, you may want to begin your search a little earlier. We rent more properties in the summer than in the winter, so if you are moving in the summer, please be aware that the search for rental property is more competitive at that time of year.
