Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for such a lovely setting to celebrate/surprise my mom for her 70th birthday! She was very surprised and so touched that we went to such lengths to celebrate her. We had a great time and very much enjoyed your warm and comfy home. We enjoyed playing bocce ball, walking into town and along the coast, and even seeing a few deer with their babies. We kayaked out of Monterey and saw seals and otter among the kelp beds. What a great trip, and because of you, it was even better! Thank you for opening your home to us.

Beautiful home, but...

  • 3 of 5
I booked this vacation rental for my wedding weekend and agree with the other great reviews about it being a beautiful home. I gave 3 stars solely based on our experience with the homeowners. As stated in the rental agreement, they can stop by for maintenance and inspection, which they WILL do. They are very involved in their rental and protective of their property. On the last day of our stay, they came by to take the trash out and noticed we had rearranged some furniture. Without even entering the house, they assumed we scratched the wood floors. We were also accused of breaking the side gate and were told we would be charged for its repair. After we finished cleaning and packing, we had them return for a walk through of the home and showed them that the floors were unharmed and the furniture was moved back to its original state. We also examined the gate together, and they agreed that the gate sticking was not from any mishandling on our part.

This house is wonderful if you are a single couple looking for a “quiet" stay. I emphasize quiet as their neighbors are very sensitive to noise. Upon arrival, we were presented an additional list of house rules in person that was separate from the signed lease agreement, and Lin even joked that they had received complaints after hosting a party of their own. Still, we were scolded for being too loud the entire weekend (with parents and grandparents present...), but it wasn't brought to our attention until the very end of our stay. They also commented about a call from a neighbor at 10:15 pm, which is after their “curfew" of 10:00 pm (not on the formal rental agreement). I had one missed call from an unknown number, however, no other attempts were made to notify us. If they lived close enough to take the trash out, you would assume they would knock on the door and inform us of any issue, especially if it was as big of a concern as they made it out to be.

We left this joyous weekend feeling angry and stressed. Without inspecting the premises, they falsely accused us of damaging their home and threatened us with repair costs. We were advised to treat the house with the same respect as we would our own, and we did; we would do nothing less when being a guest in another one's home. We have stayed in many vacation rentals, and this was by far the most negative interaction we've encountered.

Owner's Response: For the past two years all our reviews have been 5 Stars and stellar. This one negative review has several inaccuracies:
#1: We never stop by to inspect the house while it is being rented unless tenant has requested some assistance.
#2: This house is very comfortable for 8 people and we have rented to this size over the years without any complaints from neighbors.
#3: These tenants did more than “rearrange some furniture.” All the furniture in the living room and family room had been moved, out door patio furniture had been moved into the house on top of the rug, and the laundry table in the garage had been moved inside. Any homeowner would be concerned of floor damage after so much furniture being moved.
#4: We never accused them of damaging our home but requested a walk through together to check the floors. We never threatened them with repair costs. In fact, their damage deposit was returned in full.
#5. We never “scolded” them about the noise but rather informed them in private that we received several complaints from multiple neighbors about their noise levels. When I received the first complaint I called the number I had but its voice mail was full. We have never had complaints before so it was upsetting to us to get so many. The noise levels were well after 10 p.m. Unfortunately, the other calls we received were late at night from neighbors and were missed by us. Otherwise, we would have gone over to the house. It is apparent that our home was used for large pre and post wedding parties.
#6. We do not have additional lists of house rules. The lease does state that this is a “quiet residential area and we expect renters to respect our neighbors.” We simply state that 10 p.m. is a reasonable time to curtail noise.
Please take into account the positive reviews we have received about our home and us over the last several years and not this one negative review.

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5
We liked everything about the house, exactly our style. Lots of
light in the house, great kitchen, comfortable beds. As there
were 7 of us, we could have used a few more glasse to drink
out of, but that is very minor.
The location of the house was just right, we could walk almost
everywhere.
The children, especially loved the bocce court.
We will be back.

Perfect House for Our Group!

  • 5 of 5
I can only describe this house as amazing! From the outside, it looks like a very nice suburban residence. But when you get on the inside is when your jaw drops. It has been extensively remodeled and the kitchen features a new Viking range, a huge stainless refrigerator/freezer, two sinks, two skylights, and it has every dish, dinnerware, and cutlery you could possibly imagine. The four bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable to a fault. The bathrooms were spotless. Our group, consisting of four mature men with their vintage Lamborghinis, were extremely happy with the house and we have already begun the process of reserving it for next year in August. Thanks to Lin and Dave for a great stay in Pacific Grove!

The perfect place for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5
On July 27, 2014, we celebrated a special birthday for my sister. She lives in Pacific Grove, but we had siblings and friends coming from out of town. The challenge was to find a place for everyone to stay for several nights and where we could have the birthday celebration and a great get together. The answer was the Ripple House. It worked perfectly!

Everyone had a comfortable bedroom. The great room was an ideal place to greet guests and spend time together. The backyard worked perfectly for entertaining everyone. Everything we needed was right there: all the kitchen stuff, a great grill, guides to local restaurants and events. Best was the bocce ball court in the backyard. We played each evening (we’re a competitive bunch), and it was great fun.

Ripple House is spacious and comfortable; well decorated with first-class furnishings. It’s close to…
• ocean and beaches. (We saw whales, harbor seals, and otters!)
• Pacific Grove and Cannery Row. (We walked to town for coffee and pastries one morning.)
• Monterey Bay Aquarium. (A must to visit. We went twice!)
• Pacific Grove Natural History Museum. (A great place for kids and adults.)

We spent mornings catching up over coffee, afternoons walking along the ocean, and evenings playing games around the French country dining table. Everyone loved the house and being together there.

I asked each of my brothers and sisters to rate Ripple House on a 5-point scale: 5s all around. We highly recommend this vacation rental for people coming to the Monterey Peninsula for a getaway and a celebration. My family had an extraordinary get together there!

Ideal kitchen for entertaining our family of 8!

  • 5 of 5
The home met our expectations. It was nicely furnished and well maintained. The kitchen was perfect for feeding and entertaining our family of 8. The stove and double sink was certainly an added touch. Great location
