Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maria,

We had a wonderful stay with the property Seaside Highlands on the Monterey Peninsula. Their home is immaculate, equipped with everything we needed, in a very safe neighborhood and close to the beach. We were able to ride bikes along the beach, and go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium , Point Lobos State Park, National Steinback Center, Carmel Mission and the 17 mile drive in Pebble Beach. Every thing was fifteen minutes or so away from their home. If you want to explore the beautiful Monterey Peninsula this would be a great choice

Great for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house and very attentive service. Not only was the kitchen fully stocked, but Maria also offered to decorate for Christmas. Blocks for kids, great outdoor space and a good bed to bath ratio. With a nice-sized kitchen and amazing grill/outdoor space, group meals are easy. Echo the thanks for the passes to the aquarium - what a treat!

Beautiful, well-stocked home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at this home. It fit our 3 generations (8 people) really well. Maria left us passes to the aquarium which saved us about $70. House was well stocked with soap, shampoo, lotion, coffee, and much more. The basketball court was a hit with the kids and we played house games as well. Thank you!!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This home is almost sheer perfection! Beautiful and spacious, elegantly furnished with personal touches throughout the home. Maria was very responsive and informative from the time we booked the property to the day of our arrival. I loved the great backyard with it's separate seating areas, basketball court and beautiful outdoor fireplace. The herb garden is a delight!

At check-in we were greeted with a stocked refrigerator, wine, champagne, salami and even play trains for our 4 year old grandson! The spacious kitchen has first rate appliances, two fully stocked pantries and beautiful fresh flowers throughout.

The beds and linen are first rate, the bathrooms fully stocked with plush towels and all the bathroom supplies you will ever need. There are books of all subjects for reading pleasure! I especially appreciated the computer, printer and internet accessibility for sneaking a few minutes of work time.

We felt right at home during one of the most important times of our lives - our daughter's wedding weekend!

We will definitely return!

Great from start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

I rented two homes for our company durning Concours d'Elegance. The process with Maria Francesca was by-far a more superior and informative process!

Great communication from start to finish. Our management team said the home was perfect. She went above and beyond to supply the home with goodies. Unlike the other home I stayed at.

Thanks again for everything. I will certainly keep you in mind for when we are in town next year!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Great house, big, clean, well put together (furniture, bedding, etc.). My only complaint was that there was some old/ expired food in the fridge. Otherwise the place was top notch. Highly recommended.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

I think the rest of the reviews do a great job of summing it all up. This was a wonderful house. VERY clean and well maintained. Stocked kitchen and fridge. Beautiful flowers everywhere. Amazing back yard. The master bed was so comfortable that we felt like we were at home in our Tempurpedic. Maria was so sweet and easy to work with. The home is not lacking in anything. We will be back!
