Clean, private and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very pleasant!... At first I was surprised to find out it was a guest house of another property , and thought we were going to have to share green amenities but The man living in the main house is not there much, so it felt pretty private after all.

The place is clean with nice mature views to courtyard and garden areas. Fully equipped ( which is great with kids). The aquarium tiquets were very handy!

The owner was very helpful and understanding of a couple requests (and forgotten items!)... Overall I highly recommend this place! The location is very desirable, close to shopping , walkable distances to main areas in Town and freeway only 5 min away! Couldn't get better :)

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

After decades of staying in hotels while in Monterey, we now have a feel for what living there would be like - and it's a wonderful new perspective. Quaint, comfortable, quiet and private, the cottage is also very well located. The fact that our dog was allowed completed the overall delightful family experience.

Clean, comfortable and well located

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay in this comfortable, tasteful cottage. Though it's located off a main street, it's surprisingly secluded. It was clean and well kept. The kitchen is nice and functional, but you need to bring anything you want to cook - there are few spices or things like measuring spoons. There is a nice sound system, but the DVD was a bit older and didn't take a newer DVD. It was an easy drive from the place to downtown and restaurants - you definitely need a car to get around. We enjoyed the complimentary passes to the aquarium. We'd definitely stay there again.

We really enjoyed the cottage especially that we could bring our 4 legged friends and to visit with our new grandson. It was the perfect location and the cottage was extremely clean. The only suggestion I would have would be to fix or replace the stove/oven and the microwave. Thank you we enjoyed our stay.

Just right!

  • 4 of 5

The guest house was perfect for our family - very comfortable, with a nice little kitchen. We had a great time. They only problem we encountered was that the DVD player was very old and didn't seem to work. Since the wireless was fast, we just watched a movie on the computer instead!
