My house, built in 2007, is a two-storied building (1,900 sq. ft). The listed "Standard Rate" of $90.00 per night is for the standard guest bedroom for two adults. It is furnished with a firm queen-size bed, two night-stands with an individual lamp on each night stand, a leather chair, and a flat-panel TV and TV table.
The guest room's bathroom is detached from the guest room. Occasionally, the toilet is also shared with the host during the night only. In the guest room's bathroom, the shower, bathtub and toilet are in one private room with a door and lock, and the double wash sinks with marble counter are in a separate room. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, clean wash towel, shower towel and hair dryer are provided.
We also have a beautiful Master's Room for rental that is two times larger than our guest room. Our spacious Master Room has its own attached bathroom, similar to a hotel suite room. It rents to two adults for $120.00 per night. When needed, the guests can also add 1 to 2 children, or one more adult to sleep on the floor with the option of using our mattress and sleeping bag. The extra person will be charged for $35.00 per person per night. Please let me know if you are interested or have additional questions.

Kevin et sa maman Vivian ont été adorables avec nous. Le chambre principale est immense et dispose de sa propre salle de bain. La seconde chambre est plus petite mais largement suffisante pour 2 enfants. La maison est impeccable et il y a la possibilité de commander un petit déjeuner pour pas cher. Le quartier est très calme. Kévin nous a suggéré un restaurant asiatique excellent disposant d'une rapport qualité-prix exceptionnel puisque nous y avons dîné pour 40 $ à 4.
A very nice family and location. Had a little difficulty getting to the house the first night due to traffic but Kevin and his mother were very accommodating despite our very late arrival. The house is very close to the 1, perfect for getting into Monterey without any hassle. Thank you very much Yang family.
Kevin and his mother Vivian are wonderful hosts. As this was our first time in Monterey they offered suggestions on dinning and sightseeing. The bedroom/bathroom are spacious and the home is very clean and comfortable. There is free off street parking. I would recommend this property to my friends.
I rented a bedroom from Kevin Yang to go up to The Gilroy Garlic Festival in late July, 2015. Even though at first I felt like I was walking on eggshells; I soon relaxed as Kevin's hospitality ans sense of humor made me feel at ease. A wonderful and beautiful place to stay. Very comfortable.
I had a short but very nice stay at Kevin's place over the WSBK race weekend at Laguna Seca. Kevin and his mother made me feel at home right away and were very hospitable throughout the stay. The bed is very comfortable and the house is spotless. I would stay with them again anytime.
Nice location if you want to be out of the business of Monterey. Short drive to town. The beautiful Monterey bike path is just steps away. Kevin and his Mom were very sweet and gracious hosts. The master suite was perfect!
