  • Charming Pebble Beach Cottage

    "We had a lovely 5-day visit to this charming cottage in the rustic setting of the Del Monte Forest between Carmel and Monterey. We arrived after a three-hour drive from Paso Robles and were greeted very warmly by Sheila who led us to the cottage entrance where we were also met by Peggi and together they showed us into their delightful cottage, and even helped us unload our baggage from the car. We chatted for quite some time before settling down in la maison dans la forêt. It was an ideal location for us set, as it is, in Monterey's famous 7-mile drive, but a stone's throw from Pebble Beach, and both Sheila and Peggi were always available and more than willing to meet any needs we might have. We spent quite some time walking the area and also visited both Carmel a number of times and Monterey, taking in Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and other tourist spots. One new discovery for us, was Carmel Valley Village, which is I guess a 15-20 minute drive inland from Carmel and is an absolute delight. It is very much an artists' town with stunning views of the surrounding hills and populated with several vineyards, numerous marvelous restaurants, wine bars, coffee houses and many galleries. We'll certain return there and, without a doubt, base ourselves again at the matchless and charming Pebble Beach Cottage. Thanks so much, Sheila and Peggi, for everything; we'll see you again."

  • Clean, quiet location. Definitely recommend.

    "The hosts were very good at communicating and very kind to us during our stay. They are on the main level (this space is under them), but you really never heard them. The nice space is very much as shown in the pictures. The tour books and other items were nice to review. We loved having the free access to 17-mile drive. The view was very nice. The neighborhood is very peaceful. Cashier check accepted as payment was acceptable. Pavel's Backerei (WOW!!!) cannot be missed. Go early. I would recommend this spot and would definitely stay here again if coming to the area."

  • Amazing Weekend Getaway

    "We are two working professionals from LA who were looking for a quiet place to go and relax. We truly found this at the Aloha Cottage in Carmel!!! As we walked into the cottage that was tucked away in a peaceful neighborhood, there was a sense of heartfelt welcome not only because of the beautiful architecture/landscape, but also due to the amazing attention to details. They had unique snacks, a full selection of drinks for the Keurig coffee maker and nearly 300 movies to enjoy on iTunes! The owners really go above and beyond to ensure that their guests feel invited and very comfortable. Our first morning there, we got to meet Martin. It was such a pleasure to meet him after exchanging emails, which were thorough. We especially appreciated his 5 day itinerary, with activities and dining options. There were so many places to choose from. We got lunch from 5th Ave Deli, ate dinner at Flying Fish, and had French pastries from Patisserie Boissiere Restaurant and Lafayette Bakery & Cafe. The Monterey Aquarium (they generously shared their 2 guest passes) and Point Lobos State Natural Reserve (with amazing ocean views) were both an easy drive from the home. Next time, we hope to visit with a few other couples and rent out the Main Residence at Aloha Estate to rest again in peacefulness and share new memories. If you’re looking for a truly relaxing getaway (and not have to worry about noisy hotel/B&B “neighbors”), check this place out; you will not be disappointed! The best way to describe our time was that we did not feel like renters but rather guests of Martin's home. Thank you!!!"

  • Fantastic Escape

    "We just had a wonderful weekend here with a group of friends from college. In all, we are a group of 12, mostly adults. We rented both the main and guests houses. We loved it! The houses are comfortable, beautiful and spacious. We cooked together Friday night in the kitchen of the main house and used the grill. We hung around most of Saturday relaxing in the many rooms, never feeling crowded. Some enjoyed the hot tub while others napped on comfy beds. We played games on the dining table and in the living area. Drove to Carmel for dinner. Not too long a drive. Vicki was VERY responsive and she and Robert were extremely welcoming. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!"
