Great Thanksgiving in Seaside!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Thanksgiving Holiday with family and a new baby! The property was located in a quiet neighborhood in Seaside just minutes from the ocean. The house was very clean and furnished with many amenities. Bobby was very attentive and communications went well. Also Pebble Beach, Carmel by the Sea, and Big Sur were short drives away. Had a great time and would recommend the property.

We found the house very pleasant, comfortable, and spacious

  • 4 of 5

Our family get-away to Monterey was made easy staying at this property. We enjoyed and appreciated the well supplied and comfortable house for cooking and relaxing, while exploring the area's beautiful beaches, trails, and Aquarium. The owners graciously supplied a few extras in the kitchen, such as snacks and beverages and were very accommodating to our requests. We would definitely stay here again.

The reason for four stars instead of five was the scented air fresheners in every room. The perfumed air made it unpleasant for those of us with allergies, and the rest did not appreciate the rather strong scents. Once we moved the fresheners to the garage and opened the windows, we were able to fully enjoy the house.

Lovely house in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Extremely clean house and beautifully decorated. The owners were incredibly responsive and helpful. It was such a treat for our kids to be able to pick a snack from the snack drawer each morning. We also really appreciated the breakfast basics. Always nice to not have to go to the store on arrival. Appreciated the beer, wine and beverages as well. We would stay here again!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay during the New Years weekend. The house is very clean, well maintained and has all the necessary modern facilities. We relaxed on the patio in the mornings, saw the fireworks at night,and watched movies in the great room.

The bed rooms are very tastefully done with the beach theme running all across the house. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra towels and bed linens.

We were pleasantly surprised to find a very well stocked refrigerator for everything we needed for a quick breakfast and some quick bites. We had an absolutely wonderful stay here and would definitely come back whenever we are in Monterey.

Best Place to Stay in Monterey!

  • 5 of 5

I am still amazed by our recent stay in Monterey. The home was absolutely beautiful, spotless and accommodating. Bobby makes sure that you have everything you could ever need while staying at his home. He stocks his fridge and cabinets with food items to get you through a few days and even leaves a few bottles of wine. Our favorite part of the house was the outside patio and fire pit. It was an extremely relaxing stay and I would come back in a heartbeat!

Nice and very clean!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip to Monterey! The house was very nice and clean. The owners hospitality was great by having some snacks, drinks and foods available if we needed. It is located up on a hill in a modest neighborhood overlooking the bay. The neighbors were very nice. Local stores are not really within walking distance unless your're a hard core walker. It is a very short drive to stores and to Fisherman's Wharf.

Considering all aspects of the house, location and price I would give it a good value. I could not give it a full 5 star rating due to the fact we found a monitoring camera inside the house when we were leaving. I found it a bit disturbing that it was not disclosed and was not obviously displayed(visually very small). I noted it to the owner and he apologized for not disclosing it. I hope he will update the sight soon. We to have a vacation rental also and I would love to have cameras around so I completely understand the need.
