Other Things to Note
Our home does have smoke and CO detectors in each bedroom.
We will provide you with a key to your room. Friendly, quiet neighborhood. No smoking in room or even in our yard - kids and neighbors are sensitive to this. No parties in the room. We are considerate of neighbors and night-time noise. So relative quiet 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 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 stayed one night on the way from SF to LA. It was exactly same as written, nice and comfortable place.
this is a nice room in a very quiet neighborhood. Having our own entrance and bathroom was certainly a benefit. Downtown Monterey is easily accessible by foot from here. The only downside of the room is that it is a basement room with very little natural lighting and a little fresh air. Further the foam mattress is not that comfortable. We did like sitting outside in the quiet front yard.
Very glad that you liked the room and yard. If you decide you would like to come back sometime we can take the foam mattress off. The mattress underneath is good and fairly firm. Just so you know for future reference. Thanks very much for staying with us during the car show. Cheers!
The wife and I had a very pleasant stay at Robin's house and it was exactly as described, the steam shower was great and the bed was super comfy. We'd stay again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a private room in a residence with a private (website hidden) the deli across the street has great good too.
Robin's description of both her home and neighborhood were very accurate. She made us feel welcome from the time we arrived and even supplied us with snacks and water. She gave us great suggestions for dinner and allowed us the freedom to come and go as we pleased.
We had a great time at Robin's place. The room was lovely and we loved the huge shower. Robin was super nice and gave us serval tips for eating in Monterey. Oh and also her cats were super cute!
Our stay at Robin's place was great she was there to welcome us when we arrived and show us to our room. She was really knowledgeable about Monterey and gave us the name of some great places. She was really friendly with offering help but gave us our own space. The room was really nice with a comfy bed and plenty of room for all our stuff and the bathroom with the option of a steam shower was a great added touch. We were only there for a night but would definitely stay longer and go back if we were passing through.
About the Host, Robin
I live in Monterey with my family, husband, Bob and two kids, Cambell (14) and Sean (10). 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!
