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.
The room is very comfortable and very clean.
The house is ideally located.
Bob is sympatic and gave us good advice.
I recommend this adress.
After our second long day of driving and exploring the coast we were warmly welcomed by Robin and her family.
Food and rest were our priorities as we arrived late afternoon and had another day of driving ahead to reach San Francisco.
Robin enquired about our food likes and recommended the perfect resturant which we could walk to. The walk was lovely along a water way with a map and directions from Robin which was great as we had brain fog after the days drive. Filtered water, smoked almonds , some fruit and organic snack bars were also wonderful personal touches.
The room was comfortable especially the bed. The steam shower was a bonus and soothed sore muscles and relaxed us enormously having focused all day on staying on the right side of the road [ the opposite to us in Australia].
Had we arrived earlier or stayed for longer the house was in a great location to walk easily to the beach, seaside attractions and resturants.
My girlfriend and I had a fabulous experience staying with Robin and Bob! The room is truly private with its own entrance from the back of the house. Robin was very responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the reservation process, and Bob eagerly met us upon our arrival providing great restaurant and activity suggestions. The bed is SUPER cozy and the bathroom is fantastic with a great double shower and double sink. Perfect for a couple on a trip through Highway 1. Thanks Robin and Bob!!
Robin was fantastic and this suite was so cozy and comfortable!! We were arriving on Mother's Day, which I later realized could have been such an intrusion on Robin's day. She reached out in advance, however, to share when she would and would not be available to check us in in person, and clearly communicated where she was leaving a key for us. She touched base once she got home and saw we were checked in to see if we needed anything. It was so great of her to open up her home to us on a special day for her family. The room is so cozy and that bed is amazing. One of of the best nights of sleep we had - and their shower?! Spa-like! Thank you Robin!
Great spot for relaxing, thanks Robin for the hospitality
About the Host, Robin
I live in Monterey with my family, husband, Bob and two kids, Cambell (12) and Sean (8). We are busy parents and entrepenuers 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!
