Amazing stay in beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Adorable cottage with a fantastic patio where we enjoyed the hot tub, beautiful landscaping and hummingbirds. The cottage is clean, spacious and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Our hosts Dan and Colleen couldn't have been more gracious. Upon arrival there was wine and snacks, and we were given a brief tour of the house and some recommendations for some things to experience in the area which were awesome. Have rented many properties in the past and this one is at the top!

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

For our annual girl's trip we stayed at this beautiful and cozy home offered by Coleen and Dan. We loved everything, the location, the spa, the extras that Dan and Coleen left for us (2 bottles of wine, water, iced tea, snacks, etc.), the 2 tickets to the aquarium and that Dan and Coleen were just incredibly hospitable and available to answer any questions we might have about the area. The property is incredibly clean and feels like you are right at home. All four of us agree this is one of the best properties we have stayed in from our many years of taking our annual girl's trip.

Beautiful and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The home was well stocked with everything we could ever need. They also included some nice snacks and refreshments which was very much appreciated! The hot tub was mainly the reason we chose this home and that they allowed us to bring our fur-baby.

We will definitely be back!

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!
