Super convenient location: Located at the mid-point of Monterey Bay, my house is a couple minutes to HWY 1 that leads to Monterey and Carmel in around 10-15 minutes of driving. Welcome to my home in Marina, California! Although most activities are in Carmel and Monterey, you can also enjoy the natural beauty of Monterey and Carmel in Marina and not pay for their higher rates. Marina is strategically located next to HWY 1 that connects Santa Cruz, Marina, Seaside, Monterey, Carmel, Point Lobos and Big Sur.
My house is conveniently located in a beautiful, peaceful and secure neighborhood in the center of Marina, CA, where you can walk to the downtown stores and restaurants in a couple blocks. It takes only a couple minutes to drive to Highway 1 (either south-bound ramp or north-bound ramp), 5 minutes to the Marina beach, 10 minutes to Seaside, 13 minutes to Monterey Peninsula Airport (MRY), 15 minutes to Monterey, 15 minutes to Salinas, 20 minutes to Carmel, 35 minutes to Santa Cruz, and 45 minutes to Gilroy.
For bicyclers, my house is 20 steps next to 'Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail', a popular bike and hiking path that leads directly to the Monterey and Pacific Grove. For public transportation, MST bus stops of Route 16, 19, 20, and 78 are next to my house in 20-30 steps.

My house, built in 2007, is a two-storied building (1,900 sq. ft). I have a standard guest bedroom with a PRIVATE bathroom available to rent to two adults. The guestroom is furnished with a firm queen-size bed, two night-stands (each with an individual lamp), a leather chair and a small table.
This bathroom is for the guestroom guests only and they do NOT need to share it with our other house guests. In the guest bathroom, the shower, bathtub and toilet are in one private room with a door and lock, and the double wash sinks with marble counter are in a separate room. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, clean wash towel, shower towel and hair dryer are provided.
We also have a spacious Master's Room with its own PRIVATE bathroom available to rent to two adults at the rate of $125.00 per night. If interested, please contact us for details.
