We found this an excellent base for a few days in Monterey. Jean was very helpful and responsive to all communication. The deal on the Aquarium tickets was a big bonus and encouraged us to visit a wonderful facility that we might otherwise have bypassed on the grounds of cost. The harbour, Cannery Row, the Aquarium and the town centre are all within easy walking distance. The property is in a quiet location and there is a small outside seating area that we were invited to use.
The apartment is well equipped and quite spacious for up to six people. Eight would be be a bit cramped. Even with five, we would have liked a bigger dining table and more chairs. However, this was a minor irritation, as were the unlockable sliding bathroom doors and the fact that the bedroom windows were doors that could not be opened for ventilation without leaving the door unsecured.
There is a large off-road parking area, but our Dodge Charger rental car couldn't reach it because the slope to the parking area is at too sharp an angle to the street, so that it would have grounded. Happily, we had no problem parking on the street.
All things considered, Jean was an excellent host and her apartment was very good value. We would happily book it again if we came back to Monterey.
