About Jenny and Austin

About Jenny and Austin:

We fell in love with the Monterey Peninsula many years ago. It is a wonderful place to relax, recover, eat and play. We wanted to make it easier and more affordable for our friends and family to enjoy everything that this area has to offer, so we created this little sanctuary by the sea.

Jenny and Austin purchased this studio in 2004

Best Time in Monterey - Seaside

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had a very wonderful time staying at the Seaside Secret in Monterey. We were in town for a friends wedding and it was the perfect location for us. The host was very responsive and accommodating. The check-in instructions were so simple to follow and the suggested things to do in town was so helpful. My fiance and I really wanted to experience Monterey like a local and we definitely got that. I highly recommend this host and her adorable property :)

A perfect place to stay in Monterey

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I felt very welcomed in this very clean and inviting studio during our stay in Monterey. Starting with little welcoming treats, a supply of coffee, a heater and complete with a very comfortable bed this place has everything you need. We had a car, so parking right by the apartment was a huge plus. The studio is located in a quiet residential area and literally minutes from all the places you want to see in Monterey. Very convenient access to the highway, which was important to us as we ventured out to Big Sur, Carmel etc. The owners provided suggestions on things to do and places to eat. We tried almost all recommended restaurants and they were excellent! Really, we felt very cared for. Thank you so much! Definitely will stay again when we are back to California.

This property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac..............NO TRAFFIC driving by! The space, is JUST as you see in the photo! VERY CLEAN, well supplied, AND the bed was easy to fall asleep in. The evening was a bit cool and we would have appreciated an extra comforter. Our only suggestion for improvement. Also, it might not be a bad idea to add a key hanger inside the room and a ring hanger on the key (for those who forget to hang it on THEIR own car key holder while staying). Inside joke with the owners. Thank you for your understanding nature AND the marvelous space. Would stay again....................definitely!
