  • A Gem in the Jewel Box

    "My wife and I spent a wonderful month at “the little jewel box” as our home away from home from mid-January to mid-February, 2015. From the moment we walked through the door, we knew we were in for a treat. Entering, we immediately felt as though we had walked into the luxury of a well furnished apartment in Paris. Every room, from the bedroom and bathroom to the living room, kitchen and dinette, the space has been well designed and appointed, providing for efficient use of space and ease of movement throughout. As we enjoy preparing our own meals, the kitchen, though small, was more than adequate. From pots and pans to glassware and cutlery and the most well stocked spice drawer we have ever encountered in such accommodation (truly a bonus!), we found this home lacked nothing. The French Doors opening from the living/fireside room to an outdoor patio provided yet another room for morning or late afternoon relaxation. The welcome folder is always something we enjoy reading in every home, providing helpful information about the home as well as the general area, its sites, shops, and eateries. Here, the owners have provided an extensive and detailed folder that far exceeds the norm, and we took advantage of many suggestions and “don’t miss” recommendations. The location of the little jewel box enabled us to leave our car at the house and walk everywhere as we explored Monterey, Pacific Grove and the coastline east and west. We used our car only to drive outside the area. The little jewel box’s location is only 12 blocks from Cannery Row with its eclectic array of restaurants, shops, coffee shops, parks, plazas and the Monterey Aquarium. Though the home is located uphill from the waterfront and may be a challenge for some people, we did not find it difficult and often made the trek a couple of times a day. Altering our routes to and from the waterfront, was a wonderful way to explore the neighborhoods of this and its neighboring city of Pacific Grove as well as forging optional routes to and from the Bay front. Our enjoyment of a month in Monterey is credited to and enhanced by the owners’ thoughtfulness and preparation of this lovely home, their ready availability to respond to questions, and their warmth of hospitality extended to us while staying in their VRBO. We feel that we rented the “jewel of jewels” in Monterey and hope to return in the near future. It may be the “Little Jewel Box” but it is a “Jewel Box of Large Heart.”"

  • 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."

  • 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 home and responsive host

    "This house was very clean and comfortable. It came stocked with all of things you'd want in a rental home and was in a very nice location. The host was also very accommodating of my last minute request and was very responsive. I'd highly recommend this home if you are looking for a rental in the area. It is very easy to get to the home from the highway, even at night and when you're not familiar with the area. The only downside is its not a short walk to some of the places you might want to go like the beach or Carmel, but it's a very short and easy drive."
