The Space

Please send us a note asking about availability before you try to book. If your profile is empty, please tell us some about yourself.

You can rent a room for $65 a night for 1-2 people, $20 a night for additional persons.

A beautiful large house in the Monterey Bay area. 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with large kitchen, wireless internet, washer/dryer, and plenty of free street parking (or driveway parking). The primary room for rent is a private bedroom upstairs with a queen bed works well for 2 people. It has a closet and a full size dresser in it as well as large windows. There is a private bathroom next to the bedroom. Guest room includes toiletries. There is a second bedroom next to it with a queen size double mattress futon.

There is plenty of space in the rest of the house also if you have additional guests that would like to sleep on air mattresses. The entire house is 2200 sq. ft. with plenty of space to hang out or chat. No pets are allowed. No smoking inside the house, but outside on the patio is fine.

The weather here is beautiful year round, and usually a few degrees warmer and less foggy than immediately on the coast.

The house is in a nice and quiet established neighborhood on the west side of town. A park about a minutes’ walk away. About two minutes driving to the 101 (it cannot be heard from the house though), 15 minutes to the ocean, 25-30 minutes drive to Monterey and maybe 5 more to Carmel. It is about 45 minutes driving to Santa Cruz depending on the time of day and about 90 minutes drive to San Francisco. Other nearby attractions include Steinbeck Center, Pinnacles National Monument, wine tasting in the Salinas Valley or Carmel Valley, Elkhorn Slough, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Sur and California State University - Monterey Bay campus.

We are a married couple who have lived in Salinas for three years and in Monterey County for eight years. We have a newborn baby as well! We both work for non-profits and know the area and community well if you have any questions. We have each lived abroad and traveled extensively in the United States and internationally.

Guests are welcome and encouraged to sit and talk with us in our living area if they are interested. If you would rather stay to your self in your room, that is ok too.

  • David and Nina were warm and welcoming hosts with a cozy yet spacious home. My only wish was that I was there longer and had a chance to visit more!

  • This was just what I needed: a quiet, comfortable place to stay. David and Nina were very easy to interact with, and their house was very interesting. I felt safe, and had everything I needed for a good night's sleep. They also have a really cute, no cry toddler. I enjoyed staying there for my brief visit to Salinas. Highly recommend.

  • We had such a great time! The house is great and conveniently located to explore the Monterey area. The room is upstairs with a separate bathroom, making it ideal for privacy. David and Nina are extremely friendly and gave us great advice that we always followed for excursions, restaurants, etc. We will definitely try and come back!

  • Very sweet place .We check in very late , about 1 am. David got up and let us in, showing us around. And we really like his collection. We will visit again.

  • It was short but sweet. David and Nina's hospitality is just what we needed for our last-minute week-end getaway with the kids. They were gracious and friendly, and we really appreciated having a tidy, convenient place to stay in Salinas. They were super kid-friendly, giving us a personal tour of the chicken coop, and hanging out with our kids and the adorable Colefax.

  • We spent two nights in this room, in between outdoor activities and a long drive home, and were extremely comfortable. It was especially nice to have use of a private bathroom just a few steps away. Both David and Nina were really helpful, whether recommending a place to eat the night we got in or making sure that we were able to come and go when we needed to the following day.

    We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others.

  • Our night here was really good ! David and Nina are really nice and their little boy is really really cute ! Matresses are awesome.
    For sure, next time we go in Monterey, we will sleep there.

  • David and Nina were wonderful hosts....very welcoming and helpful. Our stay was brief, but we were happy to have use of both rooms upstairs. The location was convenient and quiet and the queen bed and futon were very comfortable.

  • This was my 2nd Airbnb experience and it was much better than the first due to the cleanliness in the room. The room is neatly decorated, has a soft/comfy double bed and has a private bath. Sadly we were out and about for most of the time during our short stay here and didn't get to spend time in the room. David and Nina were both very helpful and were always happy to answer any questions that we had about Salinas, Monterey, Big Sur and also LA. Thanks to them we found the beautiful Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and had a lovely day hiking.

    Thanks David and Nina we had a lovely and peaceful stay.

    October 2013
  • We spent two peaceful nights at David and Nina's house. It was a perfect place to rest while we trekked to big sur in the daylight hours. They are excellent hosts! Looking forward to our next visit someday.
