We had an excellent stay in this sweet Monterey VRBO. It was excellently maintained and the owners had clearly thought about the stay from a renters perspective. The studio was clean, charming and comfortable. The outdoor living spaces were comfortable and private. We enjoyed sitting outside by the fire in the evenings. A lot of extras were provided that we found very helpful: picnic backpack, beach chairs, bikes, washer and dryer, hand made lemon marmalade and other basics in the refrigerator. They also had an excellent binder with suggested restaurants, activities and places to visit. The studio was easily in walking distance of the wharf and many local restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again!
This was more than expected! Such a charming and relaxing place to have a "little get-away". We stayed the weekend and would have loved to have stayed longer. So many nice touches, all the amenities one would expect and more. Breakfast items, home made lemonade and the home made lemon marmalade was exceptionally delicious! The bed was extremely comfortable and having the private yard and patio provided the perfect spot to read and relax. Short walk to the beach and Fisherman's Warf was really nice as well. Just such a cute place; we can't wait to go back! Thanks so much for everything Melissa & Bob.
What a wonderful place to stay!!! Melissa & Bob have thought of every detail and then some. We absolutely loved the property and all the amenities. Easy to get to, nice trail where you can enjoy a morning stroll around two different ponds just a block away. You have complete privacy, will definitely be coming back here!!!
I can't say enough good things about this property. The owners have literally thought of everything. From the fridge being stocked with breakfast food for a few days, to the blankets on the couch on the patio, to the extra toiletries in the bathroom. Anything you might need on a vacation is there, so you don't have to worry about a thing. The location was perfect. It was so easy to walk or bike down to the rec trail and quickly get anywhere in town. It is a quick drive to Highway 1 and a short walk to a stop on the free trolley line. We loved getting out and exploring the area, but we also enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and grilling and relaxing in the beautiful outdoor space. We will most definitely be back.
Michelle and Bob truly did think of everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
My wife and I were lucky enough to get to spend 4 nights in Melissa and Bob's Monterey Studio....and one word sums it up..."WOW"! We were really blown away at just how much thought they put into all the little details. Everything was super clean and well laid-out. Melissa met us as we arrived to show us where everything was and how to work things. This property is definitely for couples...not the place for kids or groups. Some of the real highlights of the property are the private courtyard, grill, hot tub, and passes to the Monterey Aquarium. They also provided a great binder full of recommended activities and restaurant menus. The studio is in a really convenient location, easy walking distance to fisherman's wharf. If you want to go to Cannery Row or the aquarium we recommend Uber or taking the free tram. A couple things you definitely shouldn't miss: 17-mile drive, the aquarium, breakfast at First Awakenings, lunch at Loulou's Griddle in the Middle, and enjoying an evening from the hot tub. Thank you to Melissa and Bob so much, we can't wait to visit Monterey again.
