The Space

This quiet family-owned home is located in Seaside California. It is available for rent throughout the year to families and groups who are coming to visit the Monterey Peninsula to relax and enjoy the many features in our area.

Check in time is 4:00 P.M. and Check out time is by 11:00 A.M.

Located on the peninsula is Fisherman's Wharf with shops and famous restaurants. Along the water front there are bicycle and kayak rentals available along with scuba diving.

Cannery Row has more shops and restaurants and the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.

There is the 17-mile drive with many famous golf courses and events. Just a 15 minute drive away is Carmel-By-The-Sea where you can take a stroll along the streets with many shops, specialty bakeries, and restaurants. If wanting to get into nature, a nice drive to Big Sur with hiking and great eating places is about a 30 -45 minutes down the coast!

For family outings with kids we have lake El Estero. There are paddle boats available, Dennis-the–Menace Park, a skateboard park, and plenty of picnic areas.

In the area is The Wild Things, where you can see wild and exotic animals.

In Seaside we also feature the famous Mal’s Market located right around the corner from the home; known for its delicious and most affordable sandwiches, especially the world famous Bomber and Philly Cheese Steak along with their fabulous breakfast sandwiches.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very prompt response to request being made, left us fresh eggs and other assorted goodies to welcome us. He has chickens and ducks which were fun to be around. House is clean and stocked with laundry detergent, dishes, cups etc. All in all a good stay, its also a quick drive to Cannery row. Great stay for families and much cheaper than booking multiple hotel rooms.

  • We had a great stay at this place. The house is minutes away ( by car) from many great attractions and the neighborhood is safe and quiet. The house was very clean and had everything we could possibly need, including fresh eggs! My children really enjoyed the fact that there were chickens, ducks, pheasants and bunnies in the yard -- not something they are exposed to very often. Checking in and out was easy, and the hosts were very responsive and accommodating. I would definitely enjoy coming back.

  • Geri's house was perfect. Very comfortable and welcoming, and was incredibly clean. Also left good for breakfast and fresh eggs which was very sweet. Location was great and I would highly recommend staying!

  • Excellent accommodations for families. A very hospitable host, Dennis was gracious in letting us cook our breakfast using organic eggs laid by his free range chickens in the backyard. He had muffins, ice cream, chocolate mix pouches, tea, coffee, butter, cream cheese, fresh fruit, cereal, milk, water & juices all laid out to welcome weary travelers.

    Rooms were exactly as described, beds were comfortable and we had no problem with the Jack & Jill bathroom arrangement.

    Location was excellent. Very close to Monterey Aquarium & we saved a lot with the guest passes Dennis lent us. He recommended we hike @ Jack's Peak and we had an excellent hike along the Skyline trail. Also close to Carmel by the Sea & Big Sur.

    This is a well loved home that Dennis and his family decided to share through AirBnB, and we are grateful for the experience.

  • Very cute house, well maintained and very clean. Location was very good, on a quiet street about five miles from Monterrey's Cannery Row. Well suited to my family of six (two adults and four teenage children).

  • Geri's house is a wonderful choice when you visit Monterey or Carmel, especially for family with kids. My son totally loved the interaction with the animals. He was very excited. Dennis guided us around the house which is very helpful. He left us fresh eggs, milk and fruit juice. The sandwich from his grocery store is also very nice.

  • EXCELLENT accommodation for our family of 6: 4 boys (phone number hidden) months)! Met up with Dennis at the neighborhood market around the corner from the house. Neat family history of the family that grew up there! House was clean and the beds were comfortable! House was spacious enough for us for the the night. Dennis gave us a quick tour of the house and introduced us to the animals. Boys enjoyed collecting eggs and feeding the chickens and ducks! Dennis brought over fresh eggs for us to use in the morning. Very positive first experience for us.
    Thank you Dennis!!!

  • Geri and Dennis were pleasant and accommodating people.
    6 of friends arrived the house pretty late night but they were welcoming and awesome. The house was amazing and cannot believe it was not a hotel!
    Such a nice classic american house with cute chickens and ducks...
    Willing to re-visit in future and recommending.

  • We enjoyed this opportunity for family time in a comfortable home in a pleasant Seaside neighborhood. Our host Dennis was cordial and helpful. The unique bedroom/bathroom arrangement was exactly as described. Our six-year-old grandson especially enjoyed visiting the backyard livestock, and we enjoyed the very fresh eggs and other offerings for breakfast at the large dining table.
