About the Property

At middle of Monterey Bay area. At the mid-point between San Francisco and L.A.

Super convenient location: Located at the mid-point of Monterey Bay, my house is a couple minutes to HWY 1 that leads to Monterey and Carmel in around 10-15 minutes of driving.
Welcome to my home in Marina, California! Although most activities are in Carmel and Monterey, you can also enjoy the natural beauty of Monterey and Carmel in Marina and not pay for their higher rates. Marina is strategically located next to HWY 1 that connects Santa Cruz, Marina, Seaside, Monterey, Carmel, Point Lobos and Big Sur.

My house is conveniently located in a beautiful, peaceful and secure neighborhood in the center of Marina, CA, where you can walk to the downtown stores and restaurants in a couple blocks. It takes only a couple minutes to drive to Highway 1 (either south-bound ramp or north-bound ramp), 5 minutes to the Marina beach, 10 minutes to Seaside, 13 minutes to Monterey Peninsula Airport (MRY), 15 minutes to Monterey, 15 minutes to Salinas, 20 minutes to Carmel, 35 minutes to Santa Cruz, and 45 minutes to Gilroy.

For bicyclers, my house is 20 steps next to 'Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail', a popular bike and hiking path that leads directly to the Monterey and Pacific Grove. For public transportation, MST bus stops of Route 16, 19, 20, and 78 are next to my house in 20-30 steps.

How to find my house:
The GPS coordinates: 36°41’16.0” N and 121°48’01.6” W
After you booked with us, you will receive a driving direction with confirmation. You are strongly encouraged to print this driving direction and bring it with you when you coming to my house.

My house, built in 2007, is a two-storied building (1,900 sq. ft). The listed "Standard Rate" of $90.00 per night is for the standard guest bedroom for two adults. It is furnished with a firm queen-size bed, two night-stands with an individual lamp on each night stand, a leather chair, and a flat-panel TV and TV table.

The guest room's bathroom is detached from the guest room. Occasionally, the toilet is also shared with the host during the night only. In the guest room's bathroom, the shower, bathtub and toilet are in one private room with a door and lock, and the double wash sinks with marble counter are in a separate room. Soap, shampoo, conditioner, clean wash towel, shower towel and hair dryer are provided.

We also have a beautiful Master's Room for rental that is two times larger than our guest room. Our spacious Master Room has its own attached bathroom, similar to a hotel suite room. It rents to two adults for $120.00 per night. When needed, the guests can also add 1 to 2 children, or one more adult to sleep on the floor with the option of using our mattress and sleeping bag. The extra person will be charged for $35.00 per person per night. Please let me know if you are interested or have additional questions.
