This beautiful, casual, historic house is the oldest and best example of the Craftsman style of architecture found in the village of Seaside on the Monterey Peninsula. Built in 1910 by the Phelps family and located on a half-acre property, surrounded by organic gardens with private, gated parking, this property has views of Monterey Bay and the town. Seaside is considered to be the sunniest place on the Bay.

My husband had a fantastic experience. He was staying in the Carmel area while attending training for work and they made him feel right at home. The ladies were super friendly and made a great effort to know their guests and gave them their privacy when needed. The meal selections were fantastic. They even offered options for people with food restrictions Benny Ben Ben was also awesome!
This is a true gem on Airbnb. I loved my stay and plan on returning when I am back in the area. This house is just so incredibly charming, friendly and magical. You can even see the ocean from this room! Although the bathroom is shared between guests, I didn't see a single person waiting during my stay. The entire home and parking area is fenced in, making you feel incredibly safe. The trees in the yard are also lit up at night, so when you return home the grounds are beautifully lit. The water in-room, bathrobe and breakfast provided really makes this a luxury experience. I loved chatting with guests and the charming hosts at breakfast. Highly, highly recommend if you are looking to visit Carmel and Monterey, as I was!
Annemarie, Jesse and Jocelyn have the best house ever! everthing is very decorated, shinny and nice. They have quality in all their staff from the organic breakfast to the very white and flufy towels. Everything very clean amd neat!!! I really felt ate home...not to mention the dog and the cat...just loved them. Annemarie, Jessie and Jocelyn are very nice people and helped me all the time and with everything I needed.
The house has a good location between Monterey and Carmel....I would be there again! Highly recommended!!
Thanks Annemarie, Jesse and Jocelyn for the great stay. Everything was well prepared and organized. All information were sent via message and even a welcome letter was fixed on the front door. The house is so beautiful (nice garden, sea view), perfectly clean and comfortable (even a bathrobe was provided).
The breakfast was great - especially the homemade granola. Thanks again, looking. forward to visit again!
I had an amazing time here. Check in process was super easy Jocelyne was an amazing host. She is extremely hospitable and has got this thing down. When I arrived she greeted me warmly with a smiled. The place had such a nice vibe to it and everything was designed so thoughtfully and tastefully! The bed and shower are very clean like a hotel but better! I met Annemarie and Jesse later, they are also very nice and friendly, beside breakfast, and they had also left us snacks, tea and fruits! The place is lovely, very closed to everything, well organized and just perfect for either short or long stay. Would definitely come back here. The place in person is even better than the pictures, highly recommend with all thumbs! Thanks, Annemarie, Jesse and Jocelyne!!!
An amazing experience. I just wanted a night's get away to have some R&R to myself. What I got in return was a new outlook upon strangers. This family has opened up their home to countless guests and have treated each one with the Platinum Rule, "Treat others the way they want to be treated." (one step further from the golden one). This family has set the standard high on future AirBnB experiences.
The building and grounds were beautiful! the room was quaint and relaxing, just what I was looking for. Thanks for the great breakfast food and friendly conversation. I would love to come back!
