Other Things to Note
Our home does have smoke and CO detectors in each bedroom.
Please plan to have your ID ready for check in. We will provide you with a key to your room. Friendly, quiet neighborhood. 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. Off-street Carpad 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.
We were greeted very warmly by Robin. She showed us the room and bathroom and explained all the guidelines. She was very gracious and gave great advice for dinner. In fact, we arrived on a Tuesday and she recommended we go to the Farmer's Market downtown. Since I'm involved with our local Farmer's Market in Visalia, it was a perfect start to the evening.
We had a wonderful stay with Robin. The room was big and spacious and the bed was one of the best I've ever slept in.
Robin gave us some great ideas on places to go and eat and was extremely helpful with any questions we had.
Would highly recommend staying with here.
Loved loved loved everything about this space. The bed, the steam shower, the location! So wonderful! The deli across the street, the park! Definitely would stay here again :)
We felt like home at Robin's house!! It's a spacious room, cozy, warm and very well located. We were lucky enough to meet Robin and Bill, sooo nice. All the instructions were accurate and Robin answered all our questions and requests very quickly. We highly recommend it!! Thx!!! Best Airbnb experience by far!
Great neighborhood close to the beach. Robin was very kind and easy to communicate with, with good local recommendations. Room was great for the night, very comfortable bed. The market across the street is more of a liquor / corner store, mostly packaged goods plus a deli, no produce. We found out about the work being done on the house right before our stay, but it wasn't a bother. We would stay here again.
We had a great stay with Robin! She gave us good advice on what to do in Monterey and also what to do on our continued trip along the coast.
The room was very nice and the little extras like fruit and nuts on arrival was much appreciated after a long day in the car.
It is well situated with a short walk to the beach and 10 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf and the main street. Can really recommend Rosine's for breakfast!
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!
