Nestled in a beautiful neighborhood
We were here during a very bad fire in Northern CA and the smoke in Monterey was unhealthy which caused the Monterey Half Marathon to be cancelled (our main reason for visiting this area). We felt safe being next to the local fire station! We had no problems with free access to the 17 Mile Drive where the home is located and we had a wonderful drive taking in the beautiful scenery. There are lots of picnic spots, but we just returned to the beautiful kitchen to prepare our meals. The home is spotless and the modernization of this mid-century home has been well done. Our only issue, which could not have been anticipated, was that the heater went out while we were there and it was very chilly. Helen was very responsive and offered to deliver space heaters until the problem could be resolved. I'm sure this will have attention as every other aspect of the home shows great maintenance. The back yard could have a bit more attention. We ate on the deck and enjoyed the succulents in planters, but the landscaping has been left quite natural and might benefit from some pruning, etc. but I'm sure any landscaping requires deer-resistant plants since the deer are roaming freely in this area. Be careful when driving! They are adorable but don't seem afraid of cars. The bedding was wonderful and the kitchen well designed. Plenty of hot water for showers in the updated bathrooms. Loved our brief stay here. There were only 3 of us, but it could accommodate more people. It also looked safe if you have small kids or elderly with you.
Lost and Lacking
We made the best of our stay, but I don't think we would rent it again. The house was very clean so that was a plus, but it was not that comfortable to sit back and watch a little TV before going to bed because the furniture was very uncomfortable. They put the TV in the dining area. I guess they do not expect people to watch tv much but when your in your seventies you tend to get home before dark. Which brings me to why we had to get back before dark, the house is located in the middle of the forest with very winding roads! Roads are not marked well and it was a little scary. We did get better at it but will never do it again. This house would be good for younger people that don't mind driving to everything, but for us we will stay in Carmel by the Sea next time and not in the middle of a forest. Price was great for what it was.
We loved staying here! The house had everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Good house, very well equipped, very near Carmel
Very comfortable house for 6. Very well equipped with everything you may need. Very near Carmel and the 17 mile drive.
The outside part of the house, the patio where the barbacue is situated does not look nice and needs maintenance. But the inside of the house is perfect.
Perfect house for stay in Monterey - close to everything!!
This house could not have been more perfect for our stay. We had five adults - including two couples - and were in town for a PGA event in Seaside. The three bedrooms were perfect for the number of people we had, and the kitchen and living room areas allowed us to all hang out together at the house when we were home. We cooked a few times, and the kitchen had everything we needed for a pasta dinner and a taco night! The dining room table was great for dinners - and when we played cards the one night (ps - there are cards in the drawers under the tv!). The house was less than five minutes to Pebble Beach golf resort where my husband and I went to play the one day, and where we went to have breakfast as a group. It is practically long the 17 Mile Drive, which we explored several times. The house was near the mall (about 10 minutes away) and downtown Monterey (also 10 minutes). We went into Carmel the one day/evening, which was barely 15 minutes away. We have already recommended the house to family who are coming to town this year, too, and we will definitely look into this house again should we find ourselves staying in Monterey.
Wonderful location and a very cool house.
Helen, the owner was very accommodating and accessible. Walk to Poppy Hills. BBQ on the deck with friends and family.
