Luyuan was an absolutely amazing host (and we have high standards!). My girlfriend and I were BLOWN AWAY by how hospitable she was. We walked into the house that looked exactly as clean and spacious as her pics depicted and immediately felt welcomed with a nice note and post-its around the house.
There were clean towels and linens a delicious and nutritious breakfast of pancakes, dumplings, croissants, juice, and fruit ready for us in the refrigerator. Luyuan is all about details and I could not recommend staying with her enough!
The room was the prefect place to stay for the night and the dumplings were delicious. Luyuan was a great host and was very quick to respond to all my e-mails and text messages about arriving and getting the aquarium guest passes. If you are in Monterey for a night or a few, I definitely recommend staying with Luyuan.
Luyuan is a great host. She prepares a brilliant breakfast. The tickets (for free) for the Aqarium are awesome. We really enjoyed our stay.
Luyuan was a wonderful hostess. I enjoyed a marvelous breakfast of eggs, dumplings and hot tea. The room and bed were clean and very comfortable. The house is in a wonderful location and you can't beat two free passes to the Monterey Aquarium! When I return to seaside there is no other home I will consider!
Luyuan is wonderful! The room was clean, quiet, comfortable. Luyuan is nice, helpful & considerate. She made us her legendary dumplings--they are SO TASTY! We want to come back just to eat the dumplings!! (Dumplings hen hao!!)
We enjoyed our stay with Luyuan -- her house is clean and just as described. She made us delicious dumplings in the morning, and we were very excited to take advantage of the aquarium passes. The bed was perhaps a little soft for my back, but others may like it that way! If we are back in the area, we will be sure to stay with Luyuan again.
We had a wonderful stay with Luyuan. Her house is an easy drive from the aquarium, and with the two member passes she provided us, we were able to walk straight in on a holiday weekend without reserving in advance. The room is very comfortable and cozy. Luyuan made us delicious dumplings (some of the best I've ever had!) one morning for breakfast, and an omelet the next day. Couldn't have been a better experience.
Luyuan was a wonderful host! First off, the two aquarium passes were lifesavers. Maybe because we went on a three-day weekend, but the line was out the door & in-to the streets. We were able to skip all of the chaos because we had these annual guest passes. So DEFINITELY visit the aquarium when staying with Luyuan!
Besides these aquarium passes, everything else was awesome as well. The room was clean & warm, she made check-in & check-out extremely easy (even though we arrived earlier than we expected and she wasn't home, she arranged for us to be able to enter the house and all was well). During our stay, she even provided us with delicious homemade dumplings & an assortment of breakfast foods along with dessert :) She was super conversational, hospitable, and easy going. Thank you Luyuan for opening up your place to us!!
Luyuan's place was exactly what I needed for my two-day getaway to Monterey. It was very close to where my friends stayed, and we had no trouble linking up for our activities. Luyuan was a delightful host who made yummy Chinese dumplings and a delicious egg thingee the second day. I particularly liked making my own fresh orange juice with her juicer. Also, having the free pass was fantastic.
