Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip at the last minute. Alka was wonderful with helping me make arrangements ahead of time, though, and I will look forward to staying at her place when I finally make it to Pacific Grove!

I defíneles recommend Alka’s place to anyone who wants to be walking distance from different activities. The location made it super easy for my family (3 adults) and 2 months old baby to walk around and have a good time in our first time visiting Monterey. We are super grateful…
