Guests will have access to towels, linens, coffee, coffee maker, the beach, amazing sound system, an amazing outdoor fireplace, and a wonderful tuned grand piano. You will also have access to fabulous restaurants, french, italian, vegetarian, ocean front, outdoor, and many other types of cuisines and settings. Just ask me for my top 10 list. I lived there for 12 years so I know all the very best restaurants and places to go and be entertained.
The neighborhood is quiet. I have wonderful, very kind, and helpful neighbors. The neighborhood is away from the tourist traffic. You will feel like you are in one of the last small town ocean front communities in the US, yet very close to lots of activity that you may wish to venture to.
There is a local bus system that you can use. I also have two mountain bikes that you can use. There are many hiking trails walking distance from my home and lovely biking travels that run along the beach for miles leading to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Please no smoking. I would appreciate if you take your shoes off in the house. Please, please shower before using the jacuzzi. It helps the filtering of the water in the jacuzzi immensely. Please be suntan lotion and free of any body oils. Thanks!
Queen sized sleigh bed from South Africa made of red jarrah wood to match the dresser. View of the outdoor deck. Gorgeous at night. (3 of 3 bedrooms)
Tror att en GPS underlättar att hitta.
Huset är fantastiskt kanske en toa till hade undrlättat.
I övrigt är huset mycket väl utrustat
Väl värt pengarna
We had a amazing time at Dan's home. Dan was a wonderful host who was incredibly responsive and easy to coordinate with. We had more than enough room for 8 adults to stay comfortably. We could not have enjoyed the home, bbq, outdoor fireplace, Jacuzzi or roof deck anymore than we did. Can't wait to book the home again for a longer stay.
Dan was a great host. He was available every time I contacted him and allowed us to check in early. The neighbor hood was great and a good walk to both Asilomar and down town Pacific Grove. Because their were 10 of us, we found the living room and
kitchen quite small. Although there is a second huge living room for gathering, it's above the garage and separated from the rest of the house. It was also advertised as sleeping 10 people, there were only three beds and two air beds. The outside areas of the house were beautiful, but also broken up and not part of the living areas.
I'm glad you had a great time. I appreciate your feedback as I continue to always improve and delight my guests. I've clarified the bed situation in my description of the house and the photos. I can absolutely appreciate your perspective. There is a huge entertainment room upstairs with beautiful ocean views and a roof top deck that large groups can gather, watch TV and enjoy the beautiful views. I agree, the downstairs living room and dining room are cozy and are not the best place to hang out for large groups. The house has lots of separate areas for multiple families to gather and then find their own private space. Thanks again Martha.
We had a great visit at Dan's home in Pacific Grove. This was the second leg on our trip "down the coast" and we stayed for two nights. The highlights were the hot tub, the outdoor fire place and the "man cave" TV room. We ended each day with a trip to the hot tub then several hours sitting and chatting near a fire. The kitchen was very well appointed and stocked with dishes, pots & pans, etc. Beds were very comfy and had great cozy duvets! The location was great too as it was just a short drive to downtown Monterey.
One thing to note especially if you're not from California...given the terrain, quite a bit gets packed into a small square footage footprint and this can be tough to ascertain from photos which seem more linear. The "man cave" great room with the second bathroom is a newer addition and does require climbing a flight of stairs off the garage area. Not a big deal but something to be aware of.
Last but certainly not least - Dan is a super friendly guy and terrific host. I was sad at the end of the day that I didn't actually get to meet him in person!
La casa no estaba limpia para lo que nosotros esperábamos. Los cajones de la cocina estaban sucios y había tela de arañas en las lámparas. Los cobertores estaban sucios y manchados. Bajo las camas habían pelos. Las fotografías del jardín corresponderían pero no las de las pieza. El barrio donde estaba ubicada la casa no nos gustó
We had a brief yet enjoyable stay at the house. Dan was easily accessible
and informative. Great location! The house was perfect for a large group!
