Nice property and location, parking caution

  • 4 of 5
The property and location are very nice. The driveway and garage did not work for either of our cars (Toyota Camry & Buick Enclave). The ptich of the driveway is very steep and the Enclave fromt was damaged when trying to use. The Camry bottom of the car scraped when trying to park in driveway. There was parking for the two vehicles in fromt of the house but I would caution future renters to avoid damage to their vehicles.

Lovely stay in Monterey

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week in Monterey and the home matched the description exactly. It was very clean with a well-supplied kitchen. It was very close to downtown and shopping and pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. We appreciated the use of the aquarium passes. The kids loved the rope swing and swing set in the backyard. It was a great place to come back to after a full day of being a tourist! Highly recommend!

Family-Friendly Monterey Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Monterey, and the house was pretty much as represented. However, there were a few concerns which made the stay a little bit of a concern. Hopefully these comments will be helpful and are intended to be:

1) The blinds in the upstairs twin bed room did not operate which prevented closing them to darken the room. This is difficult for sleeping, especially when it is for young children.

2) The drain in the upstairs master bathroom did not plug and drain didn't seem to be "connected." Also, the fan was not working at all.

3) Biggest concern was the condition of the mattress in the master bedroom. One of our daughters and her husband used that bedroom. The matress was quite lopsided and very obviously misshapen. Our daughter said she had a great deal of difficulty getting out of the bed because of this. (She is also midway through her pregnancy.) She ended up sleeping on the floor using a twin air bed which we had brought for one of the kids.

The pluses were:

The backyard was great for the kids. The living room was very nice. The mattresses in the other two rooms were fine. We used the lovely, open kitchen and were thankful to have this for our family. Some of the dishes were not clean, however. We ran them in dishwasher after we purchased some dishwashing detergent. Also very helpful to have the washer/dryer and appreciated this very much.

The neighborhood was nice and also quiet. Location is convenient to enjoy all the wonderful sights and activities in the Monterey/Carmel area.

Hope this info is helpful.

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5
Two other resident couples and their children and my family spend an incredible weekend in Monterey. The house was perfect - incredibly kid friendly, my infant slept like a baby in the large playpen they have there. The high chairs were perfect, the toys were enjoyed, the back yard was played in. There is not a better place to stay if you have small children. It was 3 couples and 4 children (one infant, two toddlers, and one child) - we had enough room for play outside and great sleep. We will definitely be back!
