About Josephine Thompson

I love the Monterey Peninsula for its natural beauty and sports environment. I am native to Northern California and nothing beats Pacific Grove for its bike rides, running, tennis, beach views. If you are true outdoor enthusiast and nature lover, this is the place for you.

Josephine Thompson purchased this house in 1997

Why Josephine Thompson chose California

This property is located in the geographic center of the Monterey Peninsula. It is perfect for a party of 6, three couples or a family of 4-6 to stay as affordable option to high price hotels in the area. Tastefully designed and outfitted with everything you will need for your 3+ day stay, you will feel right at home. Completely updated in 2014, you will find new Indian cotton sheets and the most comfortable beds around.

Great beach get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location. Away from the crowds, but close to all the sights. It's a great set-up for families, as well as for couplles. And the property was very clean upon check-in! I appreciated that a lot!

A perfect retreat in which to recharge.

  • 5 of 5

This little home is the perfect place to come and recharge. Whether you are coming to visit the World Famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, stroll the beaches of Asilomar or spend time at Pebble Beach resort, you cannot go wrong by staying here. The convenient location allows easy access to all of the activities of the Monterey Bay area. This will always be our first choice when we visit again.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for wedding and had a great time staying at the Redwood Retreat. The house was perfect for three couples and has a great outdoor space to relax in (when we could find the time in our busy weekend). It was super convenient to get around town and we loved that there is a Trader Joes right down the road from the house. We would definitely stay at Redwood Retreat if we get the chance to visit again! Thanks Josie for an amazing weekend!

charming home

  • 4 of 5

Our 2-day stay was too short to enjoy all the nice amenities this house had to offer. Wished we had more time to enjoy the patio. Everything was clean and comfortable. Location was very convenient and away from the main drag. Point Lobos was not too far away. Thanks to the 2 Aquarium passes, we saved some $$. We hope to come back when we can stay more days.

Clean, cute, and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy and adorable! We Loved the backyard and the front entry. We had young kids with us so they enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels from the front windows in the morning. We had our dog with us too. He loved the yard as well. The location of this house is great. Close to hiking, downtown - restaurants, the aquarium, and grocery shopping. House was clean and updated. It was great that the owners provided Apple TV. It was helpful when the kids needed to wind down before bed. One thing to keep in mind when staying here, is while the kitchen is stocked with plenty of table settings, Tupperware, and glasses, you will need to bring along your own condiments and seasonings. I only say this because sometimes rental houses keep seasonings, condiments, and coffee on hand or left over from previous visits is all. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to enjoy the Monterey area and wants to bring along pets or children. Thank you so much for helping us enjoy our stay!
