Beautiful, well cared for, quiet

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a retreat like property with super kind hosts you have found your space. Vicki & Robert are kind, warm, accommodating & eager to share their knowledge of the area & special places to see. When we travel we are looking for a secluded place with no other homes in sight & privacy. The only reason I did not give the property 5 stars is that other homes are nestled in the hills that are in sight of the home with the gentle noise of everyday life. Not noisy by any stretch of the imagination but neighbors none the less. This said, we may return as the property is quite a special one.

Great retreat with canyon views

  • 5 of 5

Deep in the canyon, close to nature. Well equipped and stylishly furnished. Could linger on the deck for days. Our hosts were very polite and easy going. Highly recommended.

A great find near Monterey

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property -- close to Monterey and the beach, but in a quiet and pretty canyon. Property was well maintained and impeccably clean.

Very nice accommodations. Peaceful and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint is the price. Starts off half what you actually pay. Cleaning fee, insurance, more than 2 people fee, etc.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Vincent. So delighted that you had a great time during your stay in our Monterey Bay Guest House. Your concern about the high cost gives me an opportunity to explain to future guests that they have two options when booking a vacation stay. The first option is to book directly through the owner, which is the less costly route. The second option is to book through VRBO as you did. You only see the VRBO rate quote, not the owner quote, when you first inquire about a reservation. By e-mailing and paying directly with the owner, you'll save paying the non-refundable damage insurance fee ($59) and the service fee (which is between 10% to 15% of the booking fee) on any VRBO quote. Many of our guests book through VRBO, similarly as you did, as they don't realize they have the option to book through the owner and save $100, generally more, per reservation. Pertaining to your remark about the additional guest fee above 2, we do that to provide the lowest rate to 1 or 2 guests. Larger groups of 3, 4, or 5 require the use of additional rooms, so we charge a minimal fee of $15 per person per day above the 2 guests to cover the additional expenses.

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.
