Luxurious, comfortable and clean, private entrance bedroom in a Monterey beach neighborhood home, complete with private bath with large double-headed steam shower. This private suite houses a comfortable memory foam King Size bed, cozy chairs for reading and lounging with area lighting and free guest wifi. The private bath is large with 2 sinks and a double-headed shower. With the touch of a button, this shower can become a steam sauna for extra comfort and personal spa treatments. A nice yard with outdoor dining/sitting area among fruit trees and flowers is available for sunny days and warm nights. A fire circle for cooler nights with comfortable chairs is also available for your use.
Once you have checked in, your own private entrance from the off-street parking car-pad (uncovered, but offstreet) onto the property and into your bedroom suite is available without going through the owners home. (FYI: There is a short 6 step stairway to the bedroom entrance.)

Other Things to Note
Our home does have smoke and CO detectors in each bedroom.
We will provide you with a personal code for private door and entry into your room. We will contact you about 5 days before your arrival date to coordinate an expected arrival time and give you the code. We are flexible on that time, for sure, but appreciate arrival-day communication of arrival time so that we can sure to be home to greet you, if possible. Friendly, quiet neighborhood. No smoking in room or even in our yard - kids and neighbors are sensitive to this. No parties in the room or yard. We are considerate of neighbors and night-time noise. So relative quiet is expected after 9:00 at night. Private entrance to room allows for convenient and easy early or late arrival and departure. Your are welcome to use the yard, including the patio dining area and the conversation fire circle. Off-street Car-pad Parking for 1 car available for guests, street parking for additional cars. We have 2 great kids and 2 large, friendly cats (Maine coon) who have the run of the property, but they do not have access to the private suite when guests are present. We are early risers in our home, and we maintain quiet voices...but you may hear some creaking (older house) and gentle noise upstairs of your bedroom in the mornings and at night. If you want to do floor sleeping for kids or a friend we do add $20 per person beyond 2 guests.
I live in Monterey with my family, husband, Bob and two kids, Cambell (15) and Sean (11). We are busy parents and entreprenuers and business owners. Love outdoor activities and family time. After staying at a few Airbnbs we decided that we could and would like to host travelers in our home from time to time. We love travel and exploring and can tell you a great deal about Monterey, great hikes and restaurants, places to go and things to do in the area. We are friendly and easy to talk with, but expect that you will want your privacy and we will leave you to do what you want to do and anticipate that you will ask if you need anything from us. Cheers!
