  • Great home, great host

    "We had a business retreat here and it worked out great. Beautiful weather and sunsets, short drive to Whole Foods. We did a BBQ one night and made pasta the next night. Everybody had a great time playing ping pong and fuseball in the game room. We couldn't get play station to work but you can't have everything. All around an awesome experience and we will be trying to put together another trip to this house next year!"

  • A Perfect Stay

    "We really enjoyed our month’s stay in Mary’s wonderfully-designed condo. The open plan and mirrored walls make the most of the wonderful views, and having two decks to relax on was such a delight. We spent a lot of time on the back deck enjoying the sound of the waves and watching sea lions, sea otters and dolphins playing offshore. We appreciated the private gated access to the beach as well. The appliances are top notch and the condo is very well equipped. Having our own washer/dryer was a big plus. The location is perfect for touring in the Monterey area and has many shopping and restaurant options within easy driving distance. Mary was very welcoming and professional to deal with and answered emails promptly. She took the time to show us how everything worked at the start of our stay. She is justifiably proud of this beautiful property. We hope to make a return visit."

  • Wonderful Stay

    "This condo is located in a wonderful area. Shopping, restaurants and beaches are all within walking distance. The photos are exactly what the unit looks like. The kitchen and living room are nicely decorated and the bathrooms are nicely tiled. I do think the master bedroom could use a little more of a decorative touch and the kitchen could be better stocked with some of the basics. We also enjoyed the pool, hot tub and tennis courts. The entire complex is clean and well maintained. The beach directly below the condo is wonderful for walking, beachcombing, sun bathing and playing in the surf. The owner was easily accessible by phone or text during our stay. Please be aware there is no AC and the fans lack at times to sufficiently cool the unit.....but at times there is a wonderful ocean breeze. We would recommend this property to friends/family."

  • Great Getaway to Escape from it all

    "My husband and I rented the house with a handful of our friends for a vow renewal weekend. The location was perfect - near El Rancho Market and a few wineries. The pictures don't do the Country Dreamer justice either. We walked into the house absolutely in awe of the size, the amenities, the privacy, the huge kitchen and outside grill, the indoor/outdoor living, and the great pool & hot tub to relax in. We fully utilized each space of the house and never once felt cramped. The house was in very good condition and very clean when we arrived. The house rules and instructions were clearly laid out and easy to understand. Connie was also very helpful in suggesting wineries for our venue. We ended up booking our private party with Sunstone and it did not disappoint! The wine was incredible and so was the staff. Overall it was a great experience and made for some very special memories with our close friends. Thanks Connie and David!"

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
