  • Breathtaking

    "Even for a person who has lived most of my life on the coast, staying at the Abalone Cottage was an incredibly experience. To have the Pacific Ocean as part of the front yard is so seldom experienced that it was all we could do to tear ourselves away from the view to do anything else. The cottage is immaculately maintained both inside and out, no small task for a home on the water. The furniture is extremely comfortable, the kitchen had everything I could possibly need, the linens were wonderful, more hidden in plain sight storage space was discovered every day, lanterns and flashlights were conveniently placed should we lose power (we didn't) and wood available should we want to make a fire. The showers were great, the bathroom spotless, plenty of extra towels for shower or the beach and even an apartment size washer/dryer was provided. There is nothing more we could have asked for. We were in love and truly hope to return next year."

  • We will definitely stay again!

    "Had a wonderful time! My family and I stayed 3 nights, and we were sad to go! The condo was well kept and only a 5 minute walk to a beautiful, dog friendly beach! It was the best kept condo on the block! Monterey was about a 50 min drive, Santa Cruz a mere 20 mins, and Capitola even less. The kitchen at the condo was well stocked with cooking supplies, dishes, and a keurig! There is a Safeway not far from the condo if you need to stock or restock your fridge! There was a washer and dryer, which ended up being very convenient since my kids went through the clothes I'd brought faster than I'd planned! In the bathroom there was a "Karma drawer" in case you forgot any toiletries at home (for ex: tooth brushes, toothpaste, soap, etc.). If you had anything you didn't need you could leave it in the drawer for the next guests to use. Great idea! Lots of pillows and blankets on the beds and extras in the closets, as it does get cooler at night near the ocean. The master bedroom was spacey enough to set up the pack n' play for my son! The patio was great downstairs, stocked with beach chairs, boogey boards, a charcoal BBQ and briquets. We used the chairs on the beach and were glad we did! My absolute favorite part was the balcony upstairs off of the master bedroom! My kids enjoyed overlooking the neighborhood from up there. There was an outdoor couch out there and a coffee table, where I loved to relax at the end of the night with a cup of tea or glass of wine! Fresh sea air, view of the stars... so relaxing! One night my husband and I watch a movie out there on our portable DVD player! Marianina (the owner) was very quick to respond to my emails and texts (usually within an hour or two) and she was great answering all of my questions. I found her to be very friendly and accommodating! We will definitely be visiting again and I have already recommended it to my friends and family!"

  • A magical retreat in big sur

    "A lovely retreat, great place to relax, stare at the stars, and listen to nature. It was 10 minutes drive from hw 1 and felt like it was completely isolated even though it was fairly easy to get to. Completely silent, except for chirping birds and the sound of a gong that is on the property if you choose to use it. Showing outside in a spa-like environment surrounded by trees (privacy) was a nice touch. I only stayed a short time but would stay a month!"
