A small gated entrance filled with orchids and flowers adds beauty to the special home you are about to enter. You will be delighted with the light-filled rooms, tastefully furnished in neutral and earth tones. The space is light and airy, with high wood ceilings and handmade terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining areas as well as all the bathrooms.

Many Thanks

  • 5 of 5

Annee and David,

Many thanks for such a lovely home to call 'our own' while here in the Monterey area. Your hoe exceeded our expectations. Every detail was in place, which was very much appreciated; from the fantastic pesto torte in the cooler (yum), to the luxurious bedding, wine, sunsets and views. We can't believe we have to leave! Next time, we will stay longer. Thank you for making this a highlight of our vacation.

Warm regards

fabulous retreat. Five stars!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely fabulous. It was impeccably maintained, down to the last detail. The location could not be better for Monterrey. We were able to walk to all of the local attractions and the ocean, with its breathtaking promenade , was just across the street. Perfect for children and adults. We would definitely rent this house again or one in another location managed by this company. Thank you!

Bypass the boat whale tour

  • 5 of 5

You can whale watch from the deck of this elegant home. We spotted the spray from a small family of greys and the playfulness of the pack of otters in the bay. We parked the truck in the driveway for the duration of our stay and walked/biked/rollerbladed everywhere! Our professional chef was enthralled with the kitchen amenities. The beds were the most comfortable we've ever had, well appointed w/just the right coverings. Next visit we'll use the fireplace, futon and barbecue. We were taken in by the stunning decorations and knew we picked a classy place!

Great House, Steps from the Ocean and Cannery Row.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the House and the Area. The view from the balcony's are awesome. Less then 1/2 a block to the ocean and a very short walk to tons of shopping and restaurants on Cannery Row.

The house was very clean on arrival and everything we needed was provided. It was a great bonus to have a garage to park in.

Stunning home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home. The decor was lovely, well appointed with everything we needed, and the view was spectacular. We loved the layout of the home with 1 bedroom upstairs and 2 downstairs which made it nice for 2 couples.

We will definitely rent this property again and look forward to our next visit to the Monterey area.

Thank you for the wonderful customer service and the yummy appetizers upon our arrival.

Map

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.
