Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were very happy with this house. Nice layout and the kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and utensils. We really enjoyed the bay view out the huge windows. Big plus that you can walk to the aquarium, wharf and restaurants, the hill coming back is a bit of a challenge but doable! The owner is extremely responsive and cares that your stay is a happy one. We would rent this home again!

Beautiful home in the Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

The home blew us away with the panoramic view of Monterey Bay and nearby Seaside! It's well equipped with everything you'd need to make your stay comfortable. We also really enjoyed the complimentary tickets to the Aquarium! I highly recommend this beautiful home for any stay in the area.

Great house in Monterey

  • 4 of 5

Photos were sent to me in advance but other than the steep driveway, they did not do the house justice. They were nice but the house was even nicer inside. We were very pleased with the layout and how well maintained it was. There was confusion on both sides as to the day of our arrival, so the house was not clean when we arrived. Luckily for us the previous guests were very clean and left it in good shape. Even better they had the housekeepers there within an hour or so to thoroughly clean, make beds etc. Gave us time to unload and get something to eat after a long drive.

The house is fully stocked for BBQing and cooking at the house which was nice. Washer and dryer which is helpful when staying for a week.

The owner came by that evening to check that all was well and even brought us a welcome basket with goodies and a nice bottle of wine! Great touch.

Nothing is perfect though and the couple of minor flaws such as new towels and maybe new mattress in both bedrooms were discussed and we were thanked for the suggestions.

All in all, I would definitely stay here again. A bit pricey for the size but during Car Week everyone is.

Great location and outdoor patio

  • 5 of 5

We rented this space to have room for family and guests to celebrate out son-in-laws graduation from Russian language school. The view from the home of the ocean on a clear day is wonderful, great location to walk to the heart of Monterey and a great patio for the BBQ party. Very 1970s decor and not too fancy so perfect for having our dogs have the run of the house. Had everything we needed. The only issue was that the dishwasher needs to be set in place but we were forewarned upon our arrival of this issue. Still worked fine.

Would rent again with our dogs.

Cozy House; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Visiting for a golf tournament in Pacific Grove. This house provided a great place with easy access to Pacific Grove, Monterey, and Carmel. Cozy and comfortable with a lot of amenities and supplies in the house. Nice backyard patio area with table and chairs. Well decorated and very clean. Allowed our small, well behaved dog to join us. Quiet neighborhood. Would recommend this house to anyone traveling to the Monterey area.

Pictures only tell half the story HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Monterey for 3 Nights and this was an ideal location. We were at the top of a hill with a beautiful morning view of the Bay. Getting down the hill was a challenge with a stroller but we knew that going into it. If this place was for sale I would buy it. Gorgeous. Can't say enough about how well the place is maintained. The owners do a fine job and are very responsive. Travel Date 6/10/16 thru 6/13/16.
