Our house is located in a convenient place where you find supermarkets, shopping centers and bus stops close by within walking distance. Monterey Salinas Transit Center, Steinbeck Center, and railway station is about 4 miles away, which is accessible by taking buses. Freeway 101 is 4 minutes away and it is an ideal place to stop to or from Los Angeles. Gilroy Outlet Malls are 30 minutes drive on North 101 and Hearst Castle is about 2 hours and half down on South 101. Five miles from the house is Highway 68 whereby you can reach Toro Park (6 miles), Laguna Seca Race Track (14 miles), and Monterey City (20 miles). Hwy 1 and Marina Beach is 13 miles on the West.
We are in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Right in front of the house is a big grass covered park with playgrounds, basketball, baseball and soccer sports fields.
The weather here is beautiful year round, and usually a few degrees warmer and less foggy than immediately on the coast.

Henry and Holly purchased this house in 2012
The house is located in the very edge of the city toward north and east where you have clear view of the mountains and fresh air. In front of the house is a big park with sports and play grounds. The neighborhood is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. People are friendly to each other. In addition, the house is brand new. New people, new environment and new community. All these make you feel that everyday the sun is new and everyday is a new beginning of life. We feel this way and hope our guest can come and share it with us. They can then carry this freshness with them even if they come to stay us for one day.
The house is brand new, big and modern designed to suit better living. Bath water heating is equipped with a timer which means you got hot water instantly when you turn on the water. Also, we installed a water filtering system that provide us with clean and safe water. In front of the house is a big park covered with green grass all year round.There are sports fields and play grounds in the park. Strawberry fields on the side and back of the house stretch all the way toward mountains in the distance.Nowhere else can get such a generosity of space, fresh air and natural views.
Had a very pleasant stay. The property was as described and very comfortable and quiet. Holly and Henry were very accommodating and complied with all our requests. We had no issues with the neighbors and both on and off street parking were adequate. We had access to the laundry facilities and had no problems. A delightful stay and would like to stay there again.
Thank you Holly and Henry!
We reserved a 3 bedroom house. Before we arrived, we were told that Holly would be there as well. That was not in the ad, but we figured she may be in a separate floor and out of sight. When we arrived at night, we were surprised to find several other families staying there as well. Our family of 5 was split into 3 bedrooms on different floors of the house, and other than those rooms, there was no private space. The bedroom upstairs shared a bathroom with guests in other bedrooms on that floor, making for some interesting run ins when going to the bathroom at night. The place was clean and the beds fine, but we were not happy about the other surprise guests, as we were looking to connect as a family. Fine if they want to run their property that way, but it felt like misleading advertising. Had we known ahead of time, we never would have stayed there.
I had the opportunity to stay at Henry and Holly's wonderful home during my hiking getaway for my 30th birthday. Henry and Holly were GREAT hosts - they were always responsive to my needs and always happy to answer any questions I had (both before and during my stay). I had a large group staying at their home, and they were so accommodating to our needs. They were able to strike a great balance between making sure they were available, but also making sure that my friends had the space we needed to bond and come together as a group. The house was clean and spacious - everyone in my group was very comfortable and happy :) I felt so welcomed into their home, and I can tell how much they cared about our happiness! I give them my highest recommendation! Thank you, Holly and Henry!
