Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional property!!!!! I cannot say enough about this VRBO rental. Our visit was a girls trip from the East coast. On arrival to the airport I received a text from our host concerning the time of our arrival. We were warmly greeted on our short ride from the San Francisco airport. Dan greeted us with a cheese board and wine. As well the refrigerator was stocked with waters, chocolates and fruits for our weekend stay. This was very unexpected but greatly appreciated. The home is comfortable and well stocked. The property is beautifully maintained from the landscaping to the interior furnishings. It is close to Monteray, just a short ride in the car. We utilized to Monteray Aquarium passes and Dan gave us the helpful hints to alleviate the long line in the morning. Truly a must see.

Do not hesitate on renting this property it is five star!!!!!!!

The best stay in Monterey!

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing! It is perfect for two couples. Dan and Coleen are wonderful hosts, leaving wine and snacks for our arrival and passes for the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The home is hidden among beautiful landscaping, trees, and greenery, but the best part is the backyard, which has a hot tub. We sat on the deck each night with our wine watching the sunset. The home is well stocked with everything you could need for the kitchen. We can't wait to return. Thanks for a memorable weekend!

Fantastic! This home will not disappoint. It is wonderful in every way - cozy, beautifully decorated, lovely landscaping and deck, privacy........etc. The owners were so friendly and

accommodating, and we were suprised with the snacks that greeted us upon arrival! Our only disappointment was that we could not extend our stay as the home was already booked! We will definitely return! Thank you for a memorable stay!

Quiet, private, relaxing, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightfully private cottage in which you can relax and unwind. The kitchen is fully equipped and easy to use. There are three huge flat screen tv's, one each in the living room, bedroom, and dining area. You can get lost in the king size bed in the master bedroom if you aren't careful. When you need it, the furnace quickly heats the cottage.

For me personally for my two month stay the secluded deck surrounded by high hedges and trees made a very private and delightful area. When I wasn't off exploring I enjoyed breakfasts, lunches, and dinners on the deck. The birds work their way through the trees and bushes saranading. And the spa is there to relax in if you so desire. (It is so private you could skinny dip if you wanted to.)

Coleen and Dan are wonderful hosts who even stock the frig with beer, wine, and cheese for your arrival. They are close by if you need something but in no way do they intrude. Rather they respect your privacy completely.

There are close by exits and entries to the freeway.

I will return again and recommend this cottage to others.

Lovely Stay in Monterey!

  • 5 of 5

What a quaint little cottage nestled in the heart of Monterey! So close to everything but you feel as though you are away from the hustle & bustle of the big city. The property is well maintained, very clean, fully stocked with kitchen ware, and bedding. The owners even left a wonderful welcome assortment of goodies for us, which was unexpected! We would definitely rent this again when we come back to the area.

Fabulous five star stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for my family to stay over Christmas break! Coleen made it so special from the moment we arrived! The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the hot tub on the secluded deck, the gas fireplace, as well as the big screen TV (when we were there to relax). We used the tickets to enjoy the aquarium which is not far from the house. Everything is closely yet it was in a nice and quiet area. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare and have meals at the house. Coleen even thought of providing some extra items in the refrigerator for us! My daughter forgot something in the house and Coleen went out of her way to get it back to us. We really appreciated that! I would highly recommend staying here and I will for sure return if possible! You can't go wrong here!
