Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with large comfortable rooms. The beds and bedding are outstanding. Mickie has decorated with care to create a warm welcoming space. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals if you wish. I appreciated the included housekeeping every two weeks and having a garage which is a rarity in Monterey.

The home is located within walking distance of historic downtown Monterey and Fisherman's wharf and the weekly farmers market. The only problem is the uphill return walk. The home is centrally located so it is easy to get to Pacific Grove and Carmel. It has a large tiled patio with a small lawn and trees and shrugs to add privacy. It is a great place for enjoying meals outdoors in a sunny area. There is a view of the bay from the shady front porch from the rocking chairs. At night the view of the city lights is spectacular.

This was my 3rd summer here and I continue to enjoy my stay and discover places to visit and dine. I love the aquarium and the summer "Evenings by the Bay "when the aquarium is open on Sat. nights.This is a great time to visit without the crowds and the extra benefit of live music and snacks and wine available.

I would like to add that the maintenance of the property is excellent. Each summer the home is as fresh as the first time I stayed. Mickey has a handyman who is constantly touching things up and keeping up with any little things that need attention. (Contrary to other properties I have stayed in which get more and more run down from year to year.)

I am looking forward to my stay next summer.

Charming home in historic Monterey

  • 5 of 5

I have written a review before but will again relate our full enjoyment of this "Home Away". The owner provides a well kept and charming home in a lovely neighborhood with views of the bay. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is at your fingertips and more. Did I mention the sunny private patio in back? All that Monterey has to offer can even be walked to, Pacific Grove, Carmel and towns to the north are easily accessible. We have rented for four winters and will continue doing so. Oh, did I mention views of the bay,? Spectacular at night.

My summer home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was my second summer here and I have already reserved for 2017. Mickie is a wonderful hostess, attentive and helpful. I met her in person this summer and enjoyed her story about the home and the special treasures she shares with her guests.

The home is lovely and well kept up. It feels fresh and inviting upon arrival. Mickie has provided for every need including full service DirecTV and Apple TV. I bring my laptop, but there is an Apple computer and new printer. The kitchen has everything one needs to prepare meals including a Kuerig coffee machine. The beds are comfortable and each bedroom has an en suite bathroom. I love the having the bimonthly housekeeping service and readily available handyman. There is even a garage with a washer and dryer.

I enjoy mornings in the rocker on the front porch and the back patio and garden are warm and sunny in the afternoon. The city lights at night are beautiful.

The home is near downtown and fisherman's wharf and Trader Joe's. The summer offers opportunities for lots of cultural events from the Bach Festival to Evenings By the Bay (jazz) at the aquarium. The new Dahli museum is superb. The Monterey Sports center is 5 minutes away and offers water and exercise classes; I also take art classes at the Senior Center. I am a line dancer and have connected up with several local groups. But, nothing can surpass the natural beauty of the area.

I am looking forward to returning this summer and for many summers to come.

Just the perfect house

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, very comfortable and clean. The fireplace makes it very cozy too. It is conveniently located, in a quiet neighborhood, about 20 min walking to downtown Monterey and Fisherman's Wharf. We stayed there with our young kids and we all loved our two months in Monterey. Mickie is a wonderful person and was very helpful. Any time we had a question, we could reach her by phone. The kitchen is sweet in yellow, very well equipped, the patio is private and nice. Laundry is convenient too. The view of the bay in the morning when we woke up, was just amazing! Shopping for food is easy, Trader Joe's downtown Monterey or WholeFoods in the Del Monte Center. There are other options too. Thank you, Mickie, for a wonderful Monterey experience!

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a a lovely home that shows much TLC. I have spent the past 7 summers in vacation rentals in Monterey. Mickies's home is the best cared for and best equipped I have stayed in. Mickie has thought of everything to make a vacation stay in Monterey perfect. The home is roomy and well appointed and matches the description perfectly. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but has easy access to town and attractions.

I especially appreciated the cleaning service provided every two weeks. Having a garage was a wonderful perk for a Monterey home. It was so nice not to have to wipe mist off the windows each morning before I set out. I was overwhelmed by all the choices on the Direct TV and spoiled by the wonderful bed.

Mickie was very attentive to questions or problems and provided quick answers or sent the handy man to check things out right away.

The home is in a great location. During my stay I attend aquatic exercise classes at the Monterey Sports Center, line dance and watercolor classes at the senior center. The aquarium is a wonderful place to visit and on Saturday and Sunday nights during June & July when they have "evenings by the bay" with food and music from 6-8pm--a great time to visit when daytime crowds are gone. The Tuesday farmers market on Alvarado Street is a must. I love Point Lobos for hiking and tide pooling or just watching the sea.

The Monterey peninsula is such a wonderful place to explore at any season. It offers something for everyone: ocean and sea shore, art, theater, music, shopping, fine restaurants.

I was very comfortable here during my 6 week stay and plan on returning next summer for a longer stay.

Adorable home with amazing view in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is indeed our home away from home. Do you want a well maintained, darling two bedroom, two bathroom home with a fantastic bay view, within walking distance of beautiful downtown Monterey and the wharf? We did and we found that and more.

This home comes with a gardner, housekeeper and an owner who takes pride in the property and is very responsive to any questions or needs. We didn't realize all of the added benefits this house provides. This home is in the sun belt. We spend many hours reading in the sunny, secluded back garden. The view of the bay during the day is always captivating but the lights across the bay at night are magical. We walk to the farmers' market, a movie theater, restaurants, the wharf, coffee shops, Cannery Row, beautiful beaches and either north or south on the 26 mile bike/hike trail along the coast. It is a short distance to Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach and Big Sur. We quietly hear taps from the Presidio at night and awake to the distant sound of seals in the morning.

Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay is here for your use. Everything you could ever need for a memorable experience is here for your discovery.

We encourage you to contact Mickie and make arrangements to stay in her home any other time than when we want to.
