Enjoy a getaway to our Coastal home with GREAT LOCATION which is ONLY a few blocks/10-20 minutes WALK to Old Fishman Wharf and Cannery Row/Monterey Bay Aquarium.
NOTE: We have two units. This is for the upstair unit. It has an ocean view in the living room and an ocean view deck connected to one of the bedrooms. My husband and I usually live in this unit. During weekends and holidays, we will be out of town so we rented this unit out. We may leave our personal things in the closets and refridgerator. After booking, if more people are coming or more beds are needed, please inform us ASAP so that new price can be negociated. Failure to do so may result in the denial of service or increase of price.
On airbnb, we only are able to take bookings within 2 months of your arrival date in high season (May-September).

Your vacation apartment is fully furnished with kitchenette, instant coffee, selection of teas. I have served breakfast for 2.5 year, while only less than 30% guests have eaten our continental breakfast since most of them prefer to buy their own. Since lots of food were wasted,I am NO longer to provide breakfast in 2015.
For families with babies, we have a pack and play for rent. ($5/night)
In the rare of the unit, there is a private parking lot for our guests. The parking lot can easily hold 3-4 cars/SUVs.

We *LOVE* hosting Airbnb guests, and whether you opt to stay with us, or elsewhere, I'm confident you'll enjoy your trip to the stunning Monterey Peninsula with staying in this house in great location!
Please note activities within Pacific Grove, Monterey, Pebble Beach and Carmel-By-The-Sea are within one to ten minute drive.
Please don't use the dishwasher if there is only a few kitchen wares.
1.Please no food (including snacks) or drink (excluding water) in the beds.
2.You are welcome to use our kitchen and we try to provide all kitchenware you needed. We will clean bedrooms, bathroom, living room and other common area after you check-out, BUT not Kitchen.
Please clean kitchen, wash dishes yourself after cooking since we only provide lodging. We only charge $$25 for cleaning which doesn’t including dish washing. To clean kitchen, it may take up to 1-2 hrs. So my cleaning lady refuses to do dish washing. If you left with uncleaned kitchen, we have to deduct some money from your deposit.
3.Please don’t move big furniture. If you have to move it, please put it back since my cleaning lady couldn’t move it back by herself. Please don’t move bed-frame, it can cause bed leg broken (happened twice already).
I am sorry to give you these house rules. I didn’t mean to be strict. I really want my guests have a relaxed vacation in my house. Most of my guests were very friendly and left house clean, while a very few groups of guests left some food and drink stains in beds or made the kitchen really messy and dirty so that I have to write house rules. Hope you may understand it.
Enjoy your vacation in Monterey.
House is super clean and spacious. Very convient location. The aquarium tickets are very handy. Jean is very responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend.
Central location. We did not meet Jean but she was quick to answer my messages. She has very clear instructions on how to park and how to access the wifi. Also she proposes aquarium tickets half price.
Although we never met Jean, she was very good about getting back to us via email. The house was clean and the beds very comfortable. We really appreciated the aquarium passes and the extra pass she provided for us. We were able to walk down to the aquarium and into town which made it easy to just leave our car. We did not cook but the kitchen was set up for easy access to everything. She had yogurt and bread for guests as well. We enjoyed our stay.
Jean's place was very nice and quant! Very easy access (walking) to Cannery row and short drive to downtown and Fisherman's warf.
She was super communicative with excellent instructions and very accommodating to our needs.
Living area and bathroom have definite ocean theme and are cute! While there is a glimpse of the bay visible from one living room window, a true "ocean view" isn't available unless one steps outside, and even on the patio the ocean is hard to see. Home is within walking distance of Cannery Row and the aquarium tickets are a real plus! Plenty of parking on the property. Limited kitchen pots/pans/measuring tools so if you're planning on significant cooking, perhaps bring what you need!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Jean's place for our one year anniversary and absolutely loved it! For our first time in Monterey and our very first time using airbnb, we couldn't have asked for a better stay! The house is really nice (exactly like the pictures) and in the perfect location! The weather was awesome so we walked everywhere we went and didn't waste gas driving. It's literally right up the street form Cannery Row. The neighborhood is really cool and there's an incredible ocean view from the front of the house. We had an amazing weekend with lots planned and it was all in walking distance. We had one of the best dinners of all time a few blocks away at the Sardine Factory, which I highly recommend! Jean also included two free aquarium passes that was a huge bonus because we had a blast! Instead of paying the extra money to stay at a overpriced hotel, we lucked out and got an awesome deal on this listing. It came with everything that we wanted, a nice comfortable space, free parking right in front of the house, ocean views, free aquarium tickets, and it was right in the mix of downtown Monterey. We had a wonderful experience! Thanks again Jean for the hospitality!
Our stay was Great! Excellent location! We felt very much at home staying there, the description is very accurate, parking was good, street and car port area. Great WiFi. Thank you! We may plan future stays in the Monterey area and would like to come stay here again.
