Recent Monterey reviews

  • Fabulous house and grounds for a large group

    "We were a large, multi-generational group that was able to spread out and enjoy both houses, both spas, and several outdoor sitting areas. We enjoyed the large kitchen where 5-6 of us could work together without being in each others way. The houses were immaculate and superbly furnished in a fun, eclectic manner. Everything was in good working order, too. We can't wait to come back!"

  • Wonderful and Relaxing

    "There simply aren’t enough good things to say. The teenagers were so fully entertained, we scrapped most of the plans we had in favor of staying at the home, cooking our meals, and making s’mores around the fire pit in the evening. The panoramic view of the ocean in the living room allowed us to watch whales breaching while simply sitting on the couch! It was truly amazing. We will certainly be back!"

  • We're Home!

    "After a 8 days of hotel rooms and camping in San Francisco and the Redwoods with my three children, it was great to arrive at this beautiful guest house and have room to stretch out. We used the house as our base for day trips to Moss Landing (where we saw dozens of humpback whales) and Carmel Beach, which is a perfect beach setting for kids and adults alike. Both of these activities were recommended by the Lamberts and suited us perfectly. The house and outdoor patio are well-furnished and comfortable. You can't miss on this one!"
