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.

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!

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I was very comfortable with one small exception: I love hot water for showers and felt the water was not hot enough

Am sure if I’d said something the wonderful host would have fixed that

I will mention it the next time!

Owner's Response: Very nice lady. She commented about the gorgeous view of Monterey Bay from the expansive deck and how large and cozy and private the vacation apt. is and the convenient location. She also took advantage of the complimentary pass into Pebble Beach. She did not mention the hot water issue when staying until she arrived back to her home, so we had no idea while she was staying. We installed a new hot water heater, lots of hot water now.

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!
