Relax in a tastefully furnished real home, with original art and hardwood floors throughout. The accommodations are comprised of a sunny bedroom with super comfy Queen bed, a beautiful modern bathroom (shower and tub) supplied with 100% cotton linens and towels, very large combination living room/dining room with a wood burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the huge tiled patio filled with raised beds and fruit trees. The kitchen has a large, vintage gas stove, all of the cooking acoutrements and small appliances. Sleep peacefully in 100% cotton linens and cozy blankets. I use scent-free laundry detergent on all of the towels and linens.
Note: the adjacent studio may also be booked and only the back patio is a shared space. They have their own entrance and separate accommodations.
You will enter through a front door into the main house into a super-private, light and very quiet spot, except for the birds, yet centrally located; five minutes to downtown Monterey, Laguna Seca Raceway or CSUMB and ten minutes to Monterey Bay Aquarium. There is a 24-hour Safeway and Walgreens just 2 minutes away, in case you have any midnight cravings! Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are 10 minutes away.
We are located in a wonderful little sun belt, perched high upon a hilltop with a nice view of Monterey Bay in a very quiet residential neighborhood, so typically we are above any fog – especially during the summer season when the rest of the Monterey Peninsula could be socked-in! We are at the top of a street which dead-ends in a cul-de-sac so there is not a lot of through traffic and super-easy street parking in front of the house.
This is a great area, centrally located between Highway One and Highway 68, near the rec trail, Frog Pond, beaches and terrific hills for a morning or evening stroll. Enjoy the fabulous super sunny huge fenced tiled patio with fruit trees and gardens; you will find this to be a comfortable oasis.
A sophisticated foodie, interior designer and twenty-seven year resident of the Monterey Peninsula, I am a great resource of information if needed. There are lots of magazines and info on the area plus a binder with menus from my favorite restaurants, brochures and information on local attractions. A great fully equipped gym 2 minutes away for those who want to get their workout in. If you need restaurant recommendations prior to arrival, we are happy to oblige.
We request that you do not use the back patio after dark, as the motion sensor lights will come on and may disturb the studio guests. Feel free to enjoy the front porch in the evening. There is one common wall, at the end of the long hallway, which has some sound insulation.
You will have access to your private bedroom with Queen bed, bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room and back yard patio (patio daytime only.) Note: Pets may not be left alone on back patio or in the house for any reason!
This is intended to be a quiet sanctuary space for visitors. No partyers or additional guests/visitors. Suitable for only up to one guest or a couple - maximum two people.
