Wonderfull apartment on Monterey Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

My sister, brother in law and myself had an excellent 3-night stay in this spacious and clean apartment in Monterey. Very centrally located to visit all the wonderfull spots on the peninsula.

The home owners are very welcoming and provide their guests with lots of information.

As you can read in all reviews, the view from the deck and from the kitchen, living room and one of the bedrooms is very very nice! We didn't mind but it is good to know that one of the bedrooms is only accessible through the bathroom and it has no windows.

The cosy livingroom, kitchen and the other bedroom do have big windows, although you don't see them on the foto's displayed on VRBO. Free acces to the 17-mile drive is a great bonus! Communication before and during the stay was very easy, we recommend this apartment and would surely come again when in the area!

A long weekend in heaven.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend in Monterey. This cozy and quiet place was perfect. The outside balcony made mornings so enjoyable. The view was gorgeous and you could even hear the barking of the seals from the bay. Watching the blue jays, hummingbirds, and quail was an added bonus.

The owners were pleasant to communicate with and gave us perfect information at all times. They gave us the best restaurant suggestions. They suggested the Beach House at Lovers' Point for the sunset specials. We made reservations for after we completed the 17 mile Pebble Beach tour which was spectacular. The food and wine were excellent and you must finish your meal with the "Blue Ribbon" Cheesecake. The best we've ever eaten.

Another fine restuarant was Rosine's. Wonderful for both breakfast and dinner. The well known chef, Guy Fieri of "Drive-ins, Diners and Dives", has eaten there and recommends it highly.

We love to eat out, so we didn't do much cooking in the kitchen but you certainly could. The bedrooms were comfortable and large with lots of closet space. The futon in the living room was not very comfortable, however. The off-street parking was also very safe and close.

During our stay we also drove thru scenic Carmel as recommended by the owners. We loved that too!

We will definitely stay here again!

Scenic view of Monterey peninsula

  • 5 of 5

View is fantastic. Owners very accommodating and helpful with things to do in the area. They offer the 17 mile access pass which is awesome. Place has all amenities you need and was very clean. Want to go back with my kids in the near future. Close to lots of things to do. Would recommend highly to visit.

Clean, quiet location. Definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were very good at communicating and very kind to us during our stay. They are on the main level (this space is under them), but you really never heard them. The nice space is very much as shown in the pictures. The tour books and other items were nice to review. We loved having the free access to 17-mile drive. The view was very nice. The neighborhood is very peaceful. Cashier check accepted as payment was acceptable. Pavel's Backerei (WOW!!!) cannot be missed. Go early. I would recommend this spot and would definitely stay here again if coming to the area.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This "house" is even nicer than the pictures or the reviews! It is the complete first floor of a home, with a large living room, dining area, kitchen, bathroom and 2 large bedrooms. The view from the deck (out to the Pacific ocean) is beautiful! The area is quiet. The hosts were very friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend this property to anyone that would like a nice place to stay while visiting Monterey, with all the amenities of home.
