About Michael Kirch

My wife and I moved to this lovely home situated on the hill in Monterey 10 years ago. We raised our children here and have enjoyed living in this warm, friendly neighborhood near downtown and close to beautiful Veteran's Park, the Defense Language Institute (DLI), Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), Fisherman's Wharf and dowtown Monterey.

Michael Kirch purchased this house in 2003

Why Michael Kirch chose Monterey

Cozy, well maintained home close to everything Monterey has to offer. Situated in a lovely, historic neighborhood on the top of the hill in old Monterey. Hear the seals bark in the morning or watch the deer stroll by throughout the day. Tranquil and pleasant, this home has everything you'll need for a delightful vacation on the Monterey Peninsula.

What makes this house unique

The location is close to downtown Monterey and many of the local attractions. Fully fenced yard provides plenty of privacy. The home has everything one would need for a short term stay or a longer term rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved it

We stayed for 45 days and loved it. The home was in excellent condition, wonderfully appointed with great equipment. The location was superb....5 mins to everything Monterey. We could happily have stayed longer.

Beautiful Home-Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

You can tell the owner takes pride in his home, because it is immaculate! Not only is the home in tip-top shape, supplied with everything you might need or want, but the backyard is a "getaway" in itself. The beautiful backyard has a large area for kids to play & a huge deck to hangout & bbq on. The home is in a great location! Easy walk to the wharf, beach, biking path, restaurants & the most amazing aquarium I have ever been too! I can't say enough positive things about this house. The owner is also great. Michael communications almost immediately & is very informative. We'd love to stay here again!

Beautiful home and neighborhood in Monterey

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family lived here for a longer period and had an excellent experience. The neighbors are really pleasant and friendly, with lots of laughter and good advice for checking out the local sights and getting integrated in the community as a temporary citizen. The house is of good standard, and has everything one could ask for in a “home away from home”. When we arrived last year we quickly packed out (lots of available cabinets and drawers) and made a perfect dinner finding everything needed for a good start on a longer stay. The landlord is very easy to communicate with and is doing everything he can to accommodate our desires during the stay. One of our best memories from our time here are from sitting on the patio on the backside, with a (older) grill, but it still makes good meals in a friendly outdoor setting under the tree. We had a great time in this friendly neighborhood.

Monterey Gem delivers ultimate family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house and picturesque private yard with all the comforts of home. Charming renovated bungalow with great detail and quality furniture and decor!!! Just less than 1 mile to downtown Monterey. Walk everywhere if you want! Bike to Beach, tennis, parks, aquarium, wharf, Cannery Row, farmers markets only minutes away. Great day trips to Carmel, Carmel Valley, Big Sur, Santa Cruz and even San Francisco (2hrs.)

Perfect 60's & 70's climate for us 'desert dwellers' wanting to escape the heat.
