Monterey house description

Amazing and private guest cottage setting in year-round sunshine galore! Remodeled with wonderful furnishings and artwork, 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, kitchenette, exercise room, 2 private deck areas, hot tub overlooking the canyon, and a generous acre of gated & landscaped grounds.

Tucked away in the Monterey Sunbelt area you will turn an ordinary vacation into an extraordinary interlude. The house is beautifully designed and furnished with comfortable beds, designer bedding, and extra amenities that include fresh French Roast coffee beans and grinder, wine and chocolate, and even complimentary wine tasting at local vineyards.

The fully equipped exercise room has 2 treadmills, weights, and other 'good things' to keep you in shape.

Outdoors you'll find the perfect setting for BBQing, a propane fire pit for extending your evenings, great views, and direct access to 5,000 acres of park trails just outside the 'secret gate.' Trails have excellent bay views when there is no coastal fog. Bring your hiking shoes, binoculars, and/or mountain bikes. Pack a picnic and you'll never want to go home! Stunning!

If you truly want to relax, this is the perfect getaway. An excellent reprieve from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Stay in and enjoy a romantic interlude, or bring your kids and explore all the wonder Monterey has to offer.
