PS My daughters and I like to call it the Mermaid Cottage! It's a little Sanctuary!

Jeanie's place is wonderful. It's cozy and we felt immediately comfortable when we arrived. We got to meet Jeanie briefly as well and we felt comfortable with her immediately. She is warm, kind, and was helpful in the wee hours of the morning when we were trying to console our sick kid and mapping out the nearest urgent care location. We only wished we were able to stay longer than one night! Thanks so much Jeanie!
This was an awesome, quirky, cozy, cottage. Jeanie accommodated our last-minute reservation, and it turned out to be a great place to stay. She makes every effort to make the place comfortable and to make you feel at home. The only problem that I had was that we couldn't stay longer. We'd love to go back for a longer stay.
The mermaid cottage was perfect to stay in during our family vacation. Jeanie was a wonderful host and we communicated well throughout our stay. She recommended places to eat and visit and provided us with guest passes to the aquarium which saved us quite a bit of money! The beds were comfy and the fireplaces (both outside and indoor) were really fun to have lit during the rainy storm we had. My favorite activities were hiking at Pt. Lobos (easy trails with beautiful vistas) and driving up and down the coast line. We also went on runs in the neighborhood - great network of trails that you have to try and explore. Thanks again Jeanie!
My husband and I shared the cottage with our son and daughter-in-law. The house was exactly as described, perfect for the four of us. We walked for miles along the bluff and beach (only a few blocks away), enjoyed an evening in front of the fireplace, took advantage of the guest passes to visit the aquarium, and the "kids" used the bikes for a ride on 17 Mile Drive. Jeanie was so friendly and enthusiastic, flexible about timing, helpful in suggesting restaurants, etc. A great host and a very positive experience, highly recommended!
The house was a perfect fit for our family of 4 with two little ones (3.5 & 1.5). The house is cozy and inviting. The backyard is so magical with the fairy lights and various artistic elements. There is a secret passage to the open space and park behind the house,which was perfect for us. The location was also fantastic - 2 min drive to the most amazing beach where the kids could dig and play and only a little longer to the aquarium. Jeanie was a fantastic host also. We can't wait to come back and next time will try to stay a little longer! Thank you!
We had a lovely time at The Mermaid Cottage. The cottage is so charming with a lot of original art, and it was great having a fire in the evening. The yard is really fun - also with lots of art. The location is great with just a 3 minute walk to Asilomar and the beach. I hope to stay there again!
My time at this cottage was incredible. The four of us had a great time. Jeanie was very helpful with everything before and during the stay. She was very attentive and helpful especially with the passes to the aquarium! I hope to stay again in the future. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a little romantic getaway.
We, a family of 4 adults, spent one night in Jeanie´s home and liked it. She had everything well prepared for our arrival and our stay.
It is a lovely cottage and Jeanie managed it great! Will definitely stay again. Thank you!
Jeanie and her lovely Mermaid Cottage were the perfect escape from the fast-paced city. The cute cottage was accented by quintessential beach decorations, crafts and colors, complete with a beautifully lit backyard with firepit. The cottage was very cozy and just walking distance from the beach, not to mention the lovely drive around the coast into Monterey. Sad to have not been able to stay longer but will absolutely be visiting Jeanie and the Mermaid Cottage again very soon! It was such a pleasure.
