We had the most fantastic stay at this property. We rented the house with our siblings and siblings-in-law, and we also got married on the property. It was even better than we could have imagined it would be: the houses had everything we could possibly want, and everyone loved staying there. The owners were helpful at every turn. I would recommend this house wholeheartedly.
Property (5 out of 5)-
We had our wedding and reception on this amazing property. There was so much natural charm about the whole property. We had about 110 people attend (owner was very accommodating). Everyone loved the property and had an amazing time. We had caterers on site, as well as a DJ and Band, and everything had plenty of space. The main house is so comfortable and accommodating and the "Guest" home is also amazing.
The pictures do not do this beautiful property justice! It is much more beautiful in person! Worth every penny!
Owner (5 out of 5)--
Owner (Marty) was a pleasure to deal with. You get the sense he is "Good People" immediately upon greeting. He is up front about the property, and he also open and flexible for changes or questions. He was prompt in every attempt to reach him. We dealt with him about 10 months prior and every exchange was cordial and timely. Great house, great owners!
We will probably use this property in the future sometime for a family getaway.
*Great location also!
Our family gathered from 3 different states, for a family wedding. This property accommodated our 3 generations beautifully. We held some big family dinners and the kids ran, explored and made up games. What a wonderful place to decompress and connect with loved ones. The furnishings were comfortable and we had everything we needed, right at hand. The owners were very accommodating to all our needs.
This property turned out to be a beautiful spot for our family reunion in the Monterey area. We had four families coming in from NW Florida, Indiana, and SoCal. The photos barely do it justice, the property is much more impressive in person. The large, gated property in a low-density residential area makes it feel very private, and the grounds are beautiful. The two houses easily accommodated our group of fourteen ranging in age from 3 to 75, though we did have the two teens sleeping on air mattresses. Property was clean, reasonably well stocked, in great shape, and shows the obvious pride in ownership. A couple of minor issues were quickly and pleasantly resolved with a simple phone call to the owner, who was also very accommodating with our late arrival. Lots of space for the young kids to run and play and for the teenagers (and parents) to lounge in the sun with a good book. The location in the foothills east of Monterey proved perfect, even when the coast was socked in with the typical CA summer gloom it was clear blue and warm during the day and blissfully cool at night. The guest house and outdoor kitchen area were so nice we stayed in and cooked every night - good for the local grocer, not so good for the local restaurants! Easy driving distance to Monterey/Pacific Grove/Carmel, some beautiful beaches (check out Ft. Ord Dunes), Moss Landing (Sanctuary Cruises for whale watching), Salinas. The location also made for easy day trips to Big Sur, Santa Cruz, Henry Cowell Redwoods, Pinnacles National Park, etc. Lots to do in a beautiful part of our great country! I would highly recommend this property to anyone with a big group seeking some space in the Monterey area. I don't think we could have done better.
Thank you Kim and Marty for allowing us to spend some family and friend time at your place in Salinas as we celebrated our son’s graduation. It was such a beautiful and idyllic setting, with the sounds of turkeys gobbling and roosters crowing a reminder that we weren’t at work or in the city anymore. The stars at night shining brightly on us as we enjoyed the evenings out in the patio while barbecuing, listening to a ball game or music via the sound system you have set up, all the while visiting with one another. Those of us who were night owls enjoyed the seclusion which allowed us to be noisy without much worry of disturbing the neighbors or those of us sleeping in one of your two houses. The setting was also ideal for those who wanted to enjoy quiet time in the early mornings with only the sounds of nature present to keep one company. In all we received many compliments on your place, with many asking when we could come back for future gatherings. I now believe the statement you made when we first met, that we had secured “the best place in Salinas”. Its closeness to Monterey and Laguna Seca makes it a perfect jump off point for those who want to mix relaxation with more active pursuits.
The houses were as advertised and you were right, all we needed to bring was food, drinks and the right frame of mind. As a few of our guests commented, it didn’t feel like a rental but more like a home that any one of us was lucky enough to have and we were simply inviting our friends over.
We had a group of gents in Monterey for an adult/senior USTA tennis tournament. This property was perfect for us. The outdoor kitchen BBQ is fantastic and as we were mostly guys we pretty much grilled all of our meals. The sound systems are really great. And the hot tub was very handy for a few aching muscles. The property is very peaceful and big enough to accommodate a large group and terrific for entertaining. We plan to come back for a golf outing in the near future.
Friends, food, fun and a wonderful place to call our home away from home for the weekend. I was planning a surprise birthday party for my partner, we are lucky to have so many wonderful friends, however, it was challenging when trying to find a home big enough for everyone. This home was a gem to find. The property is spacious and private, there were enough beds for everyone and the house was well stocked with everything you would have in your own home. And the property is so much lovelier than what the pictures show, new pictures could do this listing some justice :)
Marty, your home was wonderful and you made us feel welcome, thanks.
