Often, people think that Pebble Beach is too exclusive and not affordable but it is actually comprised of many modest homes, oceanfront estates, mansions, condominiums and townhouses in a wide range of pricing.
Pebble Beach is an unincorporated community, located within a five gates which are accessed through Carmel village, one off Highway One, Highway 68 (the Samuel Morse gate), and two gates near Pacific Grove. Day guests are required to pay an admission fee, unless you are visiting friends or family. As a homeowner, there is an annual “road maintenance fee” from $25/year to approximately $200/year. Homeowners receive a shield to affix on their cars, allowing security personnel to recognize an owner.
Pebble Beach Co. owns a vast area of property within the gated area, along with golf courses, The Lodge at Pebble Beach, and The Inn at Spanish Bay. They employ the security personnel, security service, their own Architectural Review staff, and forestry personnel.
In addition to fine and casual dining within Pebble Beach, there are a total of five golf courses – making it one of the golf capitals of the world.
