Matt has an incredible house that was perfect for our needs for attending the sea otter cycling races at Laguna Seca. The location was perfect! The views were stunning and for our small group, relaxing in the backyard watching the sunset was so worth it. We loved that the house is one level, lots of bathrooms and plenty of space for our group of 6 to get along more than comfortably. Huge thanks to Matt for accommodating an airbnb newbie as well!
The house is absolutely amazing - great layout. My group all commented on how large and comfortable it was. We used it as an alternative to a hotel for our work trip.
The house was very clean and tidy. Mathew was gracious to meet me at the house at 11:30pm as my flight came in late.
I would not hesitate to stay in Mathew's house again - I hope to do so again next year.
10/10 - Thank you Mathew.
Our group had the most wonderful stay at Matt's stunning Monterey home. We soaked up the views, set up some lawn games we had brought with us, cooked a beautiful dinner, enjoyed a gorgeous sunset, and just wished we had a whole week to relax in such a lovely place. The media room was super cozy and there were tons of options for movies to watch while kicking back in easy chairs and the most comfortable couch ever. Matt and Allison were superb hosts. The communication regarding logistics was prompt and easy. And we arrived to find some thoughtful welcome treats that we finally noticed after we got over the initial shock of how amazing the views were. This spot is also a great launchpad for all sorts of hiking and seaside adventures in the area. Go and stay awhile, you won't regret a single minute.
All in all, this house is fantastic. Huge, clean, comfortable, and luxurious. The home is spacious and has more than enough room for a large group. The interior was nicely decorated and had all the amenities one would need away from home.
As nice as the interior was, the backyard was the true gem of the property. It was AMAZING and had a large deck, complete with a brand new BBQ grill and a hot tub, and one of the most beautiful views I've seen. I could have spent my entire vacation sitting on the back deck with a good book and a glass of wine.
Also - the amenities were fantastic. The house has a huge television with a fantastic sound system and comfortable couches. Also a massive and fully equipped open-plan kitchen and separate dining room with a beautiful table (we cooked a great meal).
Matt was a great host and was quick to respond to any questions/concerns I had and made my stay better than expected.
I was a little concerned that there was going to be an on-property tenant. However, I did not see him once the entire visit. He really is tucked away in his own area of the large lot.
The only down-side was it was a bit hard to find, the house being in a large gated community. However, Matt was available to talk us through it, and after a bit of messing about with the intercom at the gate, we were all good.
If I find myself in Monterey in the future, I definitely hope to stay at this house again.
