                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Over the years, I have been fortunate to have rubbed elbows with some of the most talented people in the Hospitality and Real Estate professions. Little did I know these mentors would prepare me for my Vacation Rental venture this year. I've also discovered my inner gift for interior decorating. Casa Amarilla has been a labor-of-love restoring and modernizing this quaint Monterey Cottage...a stone throw from the Aquarium. My green thumb came back to life as well. The patio and fenced garden area has blossomed this spring, and soothes one's sole at the end of an active day. A wood burning pot belly fire-pit and charcoal BBQ enhance this spacious artistic zen-like garden, while taking in the distant Monterey Bay view...our guests favorite! While staying at Casa Amarilla, don't hesitate to call or text me if you and your group need anything at all! Sincerely, Guita

                  Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
                  Guest Review Comment; “My colleague and I stayed at Guita's Casa Amarilla while attending a conference in Monterey and found the house to be lovely, clean, tidy, spacious (for a two bedroom house) with lots of amenities, light and views. Guita was such a great host. She emailed to let us know she had confirmed our reservation. Responded promptly when we had questions, and was available for questions when we called. The house is amazingly quiet with a nice deck, and very close to all of the main attractions of Monterey. I will definitely stay there again”...Angus
