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.

FREE AQUARIUM PASSES (2) AND USE OF NICE HIS/HERS BIKES, INCLUDED IN THE RATE.

Excellent rental

We had a great stay! The house was clean and comfortable. It's in a great location close to restaurants, the grocery store, the beach and the aquarium. Josie, our host, is very responsive. We hope to stay again soon.

Many thanks!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Josie's house was perfect for our annual family gathering. Everyone was so comfortable, including the baby & dogs. The house is close to a great school playground - shopping (eg Safeway & Trader Joe's) is super convenient. The walk to the beach is vigorous and beautiful. It's a "straight-shot" down David Ave. to the Aquarium, and Carmel is a stone's throw away. If you have questions, Josie is very responsive. We couldn't have had a better stay. Five stars for Josie and her house !

A cosy stay in Monterey!

  • 5 of 5

It was a family trip and we were 6 people including 3-years old twins: we all had a lovely stay!

The house was very comfortable, spacious and practical. It is well situated in a quiet neighborhood close to shopping center for groceries, and on David Street which will bring you to the aquarium and Cannery Row. Perfect. It is also very close to Candy Cane lane, where at Christmas time (and Halloween) all the houses and neighborhood are beautifully decorated and lively.

Josie was a very considerate hostess and extremely easy to contact. She made it so easy for us that I can't thank her enough!

I definitely recommend this house!

Charming House in a Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely stay!

My girlfriends and I were in town for a choral competition, and we opted to stay at a home instead of a hotel. This was a wonderful alternative, as we enjoyed its proximity to Trader Joe's and a surprisingly great Rite-Aid, in addition to all the amenities that the house offered plus convenient distance to downtown PG and Monterey. Everything was as described, and Josephine was communicative throughout the booking process as well as during our stay.

Would absolutely stay here again in the future if I'm in the area!
