We arrived in June and leave October 31. Our 5 months here have been a wonderful experience. The pictures accurately reflect the character and furnishings of the home. It's comfortable and nicely furnished. The back yard is very private and the grill and patio furniture make that a nice space to use. Having a garage was also an asset.
The bedrooms are nicely sized with lots of closet space. The kitchen is cheery and has everything one needs for fixing meals. The fireplace was especially nice on cool foggy mornings when it was nice to just "take the chill" off.
My husband and I do enjoy walking and within 10-15 minutes could be at the wharf, Custom Plaza, the library, downtown Monterey, and the Art Museum. The walk uphill can be a bit daunting, but is certainly doable--I preferred a saunter to an aerobic experience but either works. During June, July, and through Labor Day there is a FREE trolley that would take us from downtown out to the Aquarium. Often we would walk out and take the trolley back downtown, pick up some groceries from Trader Joe's and then walk home.
This is a very comfortable, clean and well maintained property.
