Green Coastal Urban Sanctuary

House - Entire home/apt · Kenneth Street, Seaside, CA 93955, United States

My 680sf eco-modern coastal dwelling is a unique sanctuary gem within the neighborhood of Seaside. This 1 bdrm 1 bthrm has reclaimed hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings & a light-filled open floor plan. It has a large kitchen, living rm and drafting table/work station with wifi.

The Space

This coastal dwelling has been fully retrofitted by myself as a small eco-conscious model for simple sustainable elemental living. It is ideal for individuals and couples who are eco-conscious, mindful, creative and love and appreciate simple minimalist living. This space is my holistic healing + visual arts studio so it is a sacred expression of who I am and how I walk in the world and what I want to offer to my community and people on journey. It is also my meditation and sanctuary space where I rejuvenate and reconnect with myself and loved ones. My intention is to share my home with like-minded individuals who are looking to live consciously, creatively and be inspired by small dwellings that rest gently on the earth, that celebrates beauty, craft, serenity and light. All interior and exterior furnishings and fine art assemblages are hand crafted, designed and built by myself the owner or custom built by local artisans using recycled & reclaimed material. There is a full kitchen with professional Wolf range and refrigerator for those interested in cooking & dining in. The space is creatively vibrant while simultaneously calm and serene with ample natural light filtering in throughout the morning, day and dusk hours. A newly built front porch and landscape welcomes you while the back yard opens to a patio for outdoor dining and relaxing. My home is in the banana belt area of Monterey Bay, a working class coastal neighborhood with great diversity, diverse ethnic cuisine, authenticity and conveniently located right next to Monterey, Carmel & Pacific Grove, Carmel Valley and Big Sur just off Hwy One. The house is only five minutes to Monterey, Carmel and the Monterey Airport. It is half way between Santa Cruz & Big Sur for those traveling up or down the Highway One corridor to LA or SF. There is also a bus line that stops just at the end of my street for easy transportation into Monterey for the day or evening if you are traveling by plane or are not wanting to drive. The house is a mile from Del Monte beach in Seaside and the coastal bike path that can take you into Monterey, Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach for the day. Come and enjoy what this beautiful Peninsula has to offer! Beautiful coastal and inland hiking and bike trails, kayaking, surfing, diving, hang gliding, horseback riding and site seeing- a photographer's dream! Come taste our locally grown food and offerings at various local and independent farmer's markets and stores throughout the Peninsula- local brews, wineries, art & culture.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire house while staying at the Green Coastal Urban Sanctuary- Bedroom, bath, kitchen, living room & computer work station in the dining area. Outdoor dining also an option. The kitchen is stocked with basic cook ware & unique hand-crafted pottery made by family and friends. Laundry & pantry room is not accessible and Guests are asked for photo ID, license or Passport upon check in along with car license info if applicable. This is intended to be a quiet sanctuary space for visitors. No partiers, smoking or additional guests/visitors.

Interaction with Guests

My interaction is minimal with guests, short and sweet, allowing them the space to create their experience as they wish and see fit. My intention is to meet each guest in person, however, I realize this might not always be possible. Early check in hours, 3-5pm, is best for me in welcoming you in person, however, this might not always be possible due to work commitments. I am always available to communicate by phone to answer any questions or needs that you might have before or during your stay. I appreciate communication prior to arrival as to when your exact arrival time will be so we can coordinate logistics and your stay.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is raw, authentic, diverse and humble in nature. It's the working class neighborhood of Monterey, more urban in character yet still neighborly and inviting. I love it because it's honest, real and not pretentious. It has the feel of a city in a coastal town, currently growing and expanding into a beautiful sustainable model for living. It's visually understated, some finding a bit rough around the edges in comparison to adjacent Carmel, however, as an artist, designer and simple person who enjoys simple living, I greatly appreciate, value and see the beauty in this and also beyond this.

Getting around

There is a convenient public transit just a block from my house that can take you in to Monterey. The Monterey airport is less than ten minutes away and Highway One is just a mile away. I recommend if you have bikes and are avid cyclists to bike into Monterey and Pacific Grove from my house. You will experience the Monterey Bay in an intimate way along the coast, amongst the Cypress and Eucalyptus trees. Getting around is easy!

  • Tracy's place is absolutely lovely!!! We were in town for the annual Sea Otter Classic (Bike Event) at Laguna Seca Raceway and Tracy's place couldn't have been in a better location. Once five minutes from the track and 10 minutes from the beach to was perfect. Her small quaint home was very relaxing without feeling secluded from the coast. We look forward to coming back.

  • Very clean and comfortable.

  • tracy's home was absolutely lovely! it was a calm and cozy sanctuary that we looked forward to going "home" to after our days out exploring the peninsula.

  • This was the most perfect spot for our weekend escape from San Francisco. It was so serene and we slept so soundly in the amazing bed. The whole space was gorgeous, and it made for the perfect home base to go explore Big Sur, Carmel and Monterey for the weekend. We're making up excuses to come back!

  • Beautiful place!! We had an amazing stay. House is very inviting, on a quiet street but close to markets, restaurants and bars. The place looks even better then the pictures.

  • It was a really unusual experience to stay at this special "Green Coastal Urban Sanctuary"
    I felt a great connection with Tracy when we were staying at her home, because of so many reasons that were reflected in the house.
    The house was extremely clean and comfortable, and super organized. It was a relatively small house, but it felt so spacious as she beautifully decorates the house with the perfect size of furniture that she built (I'd be surprised if she didn't).
    The flow of energy in the space is grounding.
    There's so much natural light coming into every room of the house.
    I love all of the accessories she put out, they make such a nice touch to the space.
    The kitchen has everything I'd dream to have in a kitchen.
    Our one and only morning that weekend, my husband and I just stayed in the bedroom chit chatting away, really enjoying the space comfortably.
    It was our first experience staying in an Airbnb home and we are so lucky to have this amazing experience hosted by Tracy.

I am passionate about elemental and regenerative living, yoga, meditation, music, the arts, nature and exploring the outdoors, cultures and all things sacred. I believe in simple living and living life to the fullest. I see the home as sanctuary, as a place to honor what's sacred and a place of rejuvenation from the world we inhabit beyond. A place to share with loved ones and nourish the soul.
