Starry, Starry Nights in the Hot Tub and Baby Quail

  • 5 of 5

Lovely quiet lodging for us after a family wedding in the area. Would be perfect for two couples traveling together. We were greeted by Robert who showed us the ropes.

We consumed the complementary large chocolate bar and bottle of wine the first night.

We used the hot tub every night. The last night we enjoyed the best view of the stars imaginable.

One unexpected plus on our last night was the parade of a big covey of tiny, chirping baby California Quail with their parents nearby. The little ones were not able to make the hop up to the next level to join their parents so we improvised with the lid of cooler to create a ramp. The cheerfully scooted up the ramp to join their parents. We were delighted by this small adventure.

I can't guarantee you will see baby quail when you stay here but if you are visit on June 13 some year, you you just might.

Relaxing & Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was pefectly described and it was such a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine by the fire or in the jacuzzi during the evening hours. It had everything we needed to prepare breakfast in the morning and although you feel miles away from civilization, it was a short and easy drive into Monterey or Salinas. The outdoor spaces are so wonderful, but indoors it was also very clean, comfortable and thoughtfully laid out. My wife and I stayed with another couple and having the bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite sides of the home allowed both couples to have their own privacy. Thank you again to Vicki who made sure we had back up propane tanks for the BBQ and fireplace & we look forward to staying at this property again!

Great outdoor space and views.

  • 5 of 5

Surprised my wife with a weekend away for Mother's day and this was the perfect little place for us and our two boys. The patio space is fantastic for just hanging out and relaxing; we roasted marshmallows in the evenings and enjoyed the sunsets. I brought a cast iron skilled to cook breakfasts on the grill and had a fantastic time here. Proximity to raceway, Monterey aquarium, Carmel and lots of other fun places is absolutely perfect.

Fantastic, isolated lovely guest house

  • 5 of 5

Vicki was a wonderful host for our stay, she made it possible for us to book the place last minute and answered all of our questions in a timely manner.

House is just as described and the pictures are very accurate - it is tucked away in the middle of a beautiful canyon neighborhood and I couldn't have simply asked for a better stay.

Definitely recommended, would stay again!

Great stay in Monterey

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cute guest house. It is definitely nestled back in the mountains but it is very sweet and peaceful! We stayed here for 7 nights and ventured out to Carmel, Big Sur, Monterey, and Pinnacles Natonal Park. The trip to Monterey is very quick and easy. Robert and Vicki were very accommodating, we had everything we needed and they were available via phone or text, any time we needed them! The house is very close in proximity to their home, but we were not bothered or felt awkward at any time. This cute little house was perfect for our group of 4. We were comfy and cozy. Note though that there is no centrally located living room. There are tv's in each room so it felt slightly cut off from each other. But after long days out and about it was not bad going to our rooms and having separate tv's! All in all our stay was great! We really appreciate all that Robert and Vicki provided for us! If we were to return we'd definitely cosnider staying here again if our circumstances allow! Thanks again!

Return to the house for dining on the deck, sinking into the private hot tub, and enjoying the sunset across the hills. A truly unique house in a very unique setting.
