A very nice apartment with a STUNNING view!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4+ weeks in Feb/Mar 2017 in Mickie’s apartment & could not have enjoyed it more. The view of Monterey Bay out of the 3 large windows is truly amazing. The unit is very clean, comfortable, attractively decorated, well-equipped & located in a pleasant, residential neighborhood near shopping & places of interest to visitors. The new large shower & spacious bathroom are exceptionally nice. It has a widescreen TV, Wi-Fi, DirecTV, & other video services. The patio & gas grill are a plus for those of us who like to cook out. A garage is available downstairs with a washer/dryer for the occupants’ exclusive use. It is hard to imagine a better place to stay. The apartment is as portrayed in the listing, maybe better; in addition, Mickie was easy to work with & very helpful.

We found endless things to do, including enjoying restaurants in Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Pacific Grove, Moss Landing, Carmel Valley, & Santa Cruz. We bought most of our groceries at Trader Joe’s, a few blocks away, but Lucky & Safeway are also convenient. We bought fresh local seafood (salmon, shrimp, halibut, rockfish, squid, sea scallops) many times at Monterey Fish Co at the end of the Municipal Wharf.

We enjoyed walking/driving along the exceptionally beautiful rugged coast in Pacific Grove, Carmel, & Asilomar State Beach. We visited several local museums, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf, & the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, watched seals, otters, & shore birds at state beaches & Elkhorn Slough near Moss Landing, & hiked at Jacks Peak Park, Point Lobos State Reserve, & Point Pinos Lighthouse.

In ‘downtown’ Carmel-by-the-Sea, we enjoyed exploring the numerous courtyards & passageways filled with countless shops & restaurants. In Santa Cruz (about 30 miles north) we saw giant redwoods in Henry Cowell State Park, drove onto the restaurant-filled half-mile long Santa Cruz Wharf for lunch, & watched surfers from the bluffs at Lighthouse Point. We visited the Mission in Carmel & drove several times down the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur with many exceptionally scenic state parks & beaches along the way as well as several restaurants with stunning views. A favorite place was Garrapata State Beach where we could walk down to the beach & have a picnic while watching the wild crashing surf.

All in all, Mickie’s apartment provides a very comfortable & enjoyable base from which to partake all of the many exceptional things to do and see in the area.

Sunny, cozy Monterey get-away

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier staying in this cozy apartment with a view of Monterey bay. We loved the location! The unit is in a quiet, residential neighborhood and is in six block walking distance of old historic Monterey and its interesting downtown. The world-famous aquarium is a 45 minute walk away as are many parks and walking paths. Of course, Point Lobos, Big Sur, the California missions and multiple beautiful areas are also nearby. The unit is sunny, clean and well-kept...a perfect size for a couple, whether you're staying a few days or a month as we did. It was fun visiting family in the area while still having our own, warm home-away-from-home to come back to every night. Five stars!

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a month and it worked out very well. The home had everything we needed. From the kitchen to fluffy bathroom towels, we were very pleased. The seating was comfortable and television subscriptions provided were more extensive than offered in most rental places. The owner Mickie was very responsive when something came up, and we can highly recommend staying here, you can book with confidence!

Lovely place to stay - quiet but close to all!

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic stay here - everything you need is provided, and the bed is so wonderful I am going to order the same model for my home. Very clean and well maintained. I love Monterey, and it was especially nice to be able to walk down to Fisherman's Wharf for clam chowder.

I will stay here again as soon as I can get the time off from work!

Stop Looking. Stay Here.

  • 5 of 5

Take the advice of two picky adults who have recently stayed in 11 vacation rentals across the US and Canada, this is the place to stay. Stayed in it for 6 weeks after having stayed a month last September. Prime location, walking distance to downtown Monterey and the harbor, great restaurants and beautiful view of Monterey Bay. Home is all owner claims and more, private, safe, light and bright, views, great neighborhood, well organized and pristinely clean. Mickie & Frank are a pleasure to work with and get to know, professional, personable, timely and a warehouse of Monterey Bay knowledge. Already planning a return trip. You will be pleased.

Better Than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been more pleased So pleased already have a reservation for next year. it's everything noted in the ad and more. The bed is heavenly with a feather bed top. Just the right distance from the harbor to hear the seals barking at night. Very safe neighborhood. Great to have a garage for the car. Very well stocked kitchen. Micki is very professional and responsive. Thanks for a great stay and looking forward to our return.
