Why Monterey Bay chose Monterey

BEST MONTEREY PENINSULA LOCATION, JUST A FEW BLOCKS OFF HWY 1. Minutes to all Monterey Peninsula cities, Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and downtown Monterey, gorgeous bay view and hill views. Great walking and shopping close by. Monterey has the best bus system to downtown Monterey, Carmel, Carmel Valley, Big Sur, Wine Tour busses, very reasonable. The busses run about every 15 minutes. Beaches and hiking nearby everywhere.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet, cozy but spacious & close to all events, activities, shopping on the Monterey/Carmel Peninsula. Great place to relax on vacation while away from home while enjoying the bay views & our wonderful, mild climate

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making your home such a comfortable and inviting place for us to stay with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. The deck and view were spectacular and so enjoyable. Your home's convenient location to all the attractions in this beautiful area made getting around a breeze. We look forward to returning soon.

Owner's Response: Enjoyed having the ladies from CO, here to celebrate a 50th birthday. They enjoyed our roomy place with the awesome view of Monterey bay. They went to Pt. Lobos hiking, to quaint Carmel, Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, & many other places. They were all very courteous, took good care of everything, and would invite them back any time.

GORGEOUS area

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in the Monterey area. We were drawn there for the whale watching and it did not disappoint! So much to see (and eat!) the rental was in a prime spot. It felt like we were pretty center to everything we wanted to see and do AND you could see the ocean from the front door. What more could you ask for? We had everything we needed for the week and we felt so comfortable. Char and Charlie were so sweet- thank you for the recommendations on things to do.

Point Lobos Park is a MUST!

Nice view but farther from the water than expected

  • 3 of 5

This unit is a converted basement that would have been wonderful for a family of four. We were looking for a romantic getaway and it didn't quite fill the bill. The decor is "eclectic" and the bedroom with the view is not the master bedroom so you have to choose between the convenience of having an adjoining bath to the bedroom but not having any windows or having to walk through the kitchen/dining area to get to the bathroom if you want a view.

Char, the owner, couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating--friendly but not intrusive. BTW, you can hear the owners walking around upstairs, so that might detract from the sense of privacy for some people.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property and the hosts were just great. Our flight was delayed and we did not arrive until 2 a.m., yet they made it clear it was no problem, waited for us and were there when we arrived to show us the place and leave a bottle of wine. Can't get much better.

Cosy, comfortable accommodation, lovely view & wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with our 16 year old daughter and 13 year old son. After spending a few nights in the noisy hustle and bustle of San Francisco, this place was quite a welcome change. It was so quiet, peaceful, cosy and relaxing. And the spaciousness of the accommodation was much appreciated by my husband and I who had grown rather tired of two squabbling teenagers who needed their own space after spending a few nights in a cramped city motel room! Having the hosts on-site (they live upstairs with the accommodation being located downstairs with its own external access) was great. They were not intrusive at all and kindly offered an itinerary which worked perfectly for the short time we were there. I note that a previous review referred to the second bedroom being accessed off the bathroom. We didn’t find this an issue at all. My only regret is that we didn’t book for a longer stay. I loved Monterey and hope to be back in the future. If we do manage to make it back, I would definitely book this accommodation again.

Owner's Response: A wonderful family from down under. The parents were a delight and the two teenage children were very quiet & polite. They were impressed with all the room here for the family. They were out all day visiting Carmel , Monterey Aquarium. 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach, otter watching & hiking at Pt. Lobos . Everything was left immaculate. They are welcome any time.
