Our son is in the Air Force and the family gathered in Monterey to attend his graduation from Language School. We have never rented a house before and I am pleased to say that we were very happy with our experience and would definately do it again! This "lighthouse" home was very clean and it was equiped with everything we needed. The description of the property was accurate and there were no surprises other than the PLEASANT surprise of what a truly comfortable and homey property this is. We especially enjoyed the gas fireplace on the cool mornings and evenings. The dining room is spectacular and accomodated our whole family for dinners. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, bowls etc. It was nice to have the two living spaces (the living room upstairs and the family room downstairs) so there were different places to congregate. We were glad to have the washer and dryer available and there was even laundry soap provided. My parents enjoyed the guest apartment and it was nice for them to be able to have their own space. The backyard was essential for us for Ladder Ball playing. The property manager was really easy to work with and I appreciated her prompt responses when I contacted her. We had a problem with connecting to the internet at the home and she was almost immediately over to fix the problem. Our entire experience was very smooth from start to finish.
