  • Family Reunion for Wedding

    "OK fine, I am still dreaming about the coffee cake. But I digress. Our nephew was getting married in Carmel and my three adult children wanted to have one house to share so we could all be together. Hacienda Serena was like walking into a cozy elegant family home with a view! No detail was overlooked for our comfort and the quiet was so welcome after the frenzy of all the details of getting kids in from out of state, airport runs, wedding participation, etc. We all wished we could have stayed longer just to enjoy the property and being together. It is a perfect location for all things Monterey and Carmel. And did I tell you about the coffee cake?"

  • Great House for lots of People

    "This house was great for large groups of people. It had multiple decks, an outdoor fire pit/barbeque, lots of seating, etc. The location was a little out-of-the-way but it is only about 25 min. from Monterey and 10 minutes from the nearest Starbucks. The property needs a little love and the house is an odd mix of new and old decor with a bunch of chickens/roosters thrown in. The pluses: great for lots of people, a BIG, roomy house, great outside areas, lots of parking. The minuses: the refrigerator was extremely fishy-smelling, most of the halogen lights were burnt out in the kitchen, the WiFi was sketchy at best, the shower in the hall has no water pressure, no spatulas (for the barbeque or anywhere), and at some point, the receiver must have disappeared because there are speakers but nothing connected to them."

  • Wonderful Family Getaway!

    "Our family had a wonderful vacation at the Asilomar Ocean Retreat. You could tell that care and attention had been put into the home. The furniture was comfortable and the house layout was perfect for our needs, with a central gathering space as well as spacious private bedrooms. The owner mailed us a detailed information booklet before we arrived and also left brochures and tourist guides at the house for us – as well as aquarium passes. The house, which is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, is walking distance to the beach and has a huge backyard, backing onto a nature trail. We had a great vacation and we will definitely be back!"

  • Perfect combination of nature, comfort and design

    "My husband and I recently stayed at this guest house. We found Vicki and Robert to be the perfect hosts: welcoming, well organized and experienced. Everything you could want or need is here; we wished we could stay longer. From the hot tub you can view the stars at night and the fire pit adds ambiance to the backyard in the evening. The scenery is beautiful and we found it a short comfortable drive to Carmel, which we enjoyed immensely. The house is designed beautifully with a great eye to the best use of space and style. We would stay again when in the area."
