The Space

Super convenient location: Located at the mid-point of Monterey Bay, my house is a couple minutes to HWY 1 that leads to Monterey and Carmel in around 10-15 minutes of driving.
Welcome to my home in Marina, California! Although most activities are in Carmel and Monterey, you can also enjoy the natural beauty of Monterey and Carmel in Marina and not pay for their higher rates. Marina is strategically located next to HWY 1 that connects Santa Cruz, Marina, Seaside, Monterey, Carmel, Point Lobos and Big Sur.

My house is conveniently located in a beautiful, peaceful and secure neighborhood in the center of Marina, CA, where you can walk to the downtown stores and restaurants in a couple blocks. It takes only a couple minutes to drive to Highway 1 (either south-bound ramp or north-bound ramp), 5 minutes to the Marina beach, 10 minutes to Seaside, 13 minutes to Monterey Peninsula Airport (MRY), 15 minutes to Monterey, 15 minutes to Salinas, 20 minutes to Carmel, 35 minutes to Santa Cruz, and 45 minutes to Gilroy.

For bicyclers, my house is 20 steps next to "Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail", a popular bike and hiking path that leads directly to the Monterey and Pacific Grove. For public transportation, MST bus stops of Route 16, 19, 20, and 25 are next to my house in 20-30 steps.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • All was perfect. Kevin and his mother are wondeful people. My brother and I will miss those breakfasts!! It was an excellent experience.

    April 2014
  • This is our third stay with Kevin and, as before, it met or exceeded expectations. The property is lovely and the hosts are engaging and caring...and have evolved into old friends. The room was as advertised and most accommodating and comfortable. Would we go back?.....Yes!

    March 2014
  • Really big master bedroom and bath, spotlessly clean and very quiet. Home is very easy to get to from the freeway. I stayed five nights and just made day trips to the surrounding areas. Parking at Kevin's house is right in the driveway. Kevin and Mrs Yang are gracious hosts. Ask for the exercise mat if you want to do some stretches or yoga during your stay.

    October 2013
  • Kevin and his mother gave us a very courteous and warm welcome in spite of us interrupting their evening meal. Their house was immaculate and comfortable. Mrs Yang, a very special lady, provided us with an excellent breakfast and reduced price tickets to the wonderful Monterey Aquarium, a truly amazing place to visit.

    October 2013
  • We spent 2 nights at Kevin’s house. It was fantastic. Kevin has a big house in a nice neighborhood. The room was huge with an even bigger bathroom. The bathroom has a big tub and a shower for two or more. Kevin and his mother Vivian are very friendly and hospitable hosts. They gave us tickets for the aquarium with a big discount. We drank tea together and had nice chats. We’d love to come back ☺ Thanks for everything.

    October 2013
  • Huge bed- and bathroom!!! Kevin is very polite. Ask for his two membercards to the Monterey Aquarium. You pay him 30 USD instead of about 60 at the Aquarium itself.

    October 2013
  • Big, clean with a huge bathroom: I really reccomend it! If you are going to visit the aquarium, ask Kevin for reduction.

    October 2013
  • Kevin is an exemplary host who did his utmost to make us, his guests, feel welcome and comfortable. We enjoyed our three night stay in his master bedroom suite. The sunlit room was immaculate and tastefully decorated, with comfortable bed and chairs. Kevin was very helpful in suggesting sites to visit in the Monterey area, and gave excellent directions. His mother was friendly and hospitable, and shared her kitchen graciously.

    October 2013
  • The house is well furnished and super clean. Kevin and his mother are very friendly and helpful. Due to SF's traffice jam, we arrived in Kevin's house almost 10PM. And Kevin welcomed us without any complain about our late arrival.
    The bath and toilet is super clean and all decorated with beautiful flowers, which makes the house super sweet.
    Kevin's mother prepared richful Chinese style breakfast. We wish we had bigger stomach to eat them all.
    Both Kevin and his mother are very easy going and friendly. Kevin's house is excellenet choice for our honeymoon trip. I will definitely visit again next time!

    September 2013
  • Kevin and his mother are very kind, friendly and hospitable people and it was a pleasure to stay with them. We had very interesting chats with Kevin and he offered us some great advice about places to see on our drive down highway 1.

    Their home is beautiful, and the room and adjoining bathroom are large, clean and comfortable. We slept there very peacefully. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, and has plenty of places to eat nearby (we had an excellent meal at the local Italian!) The only drawback was that the house was a little tricky to find, given that there are diversions due to roadworks going on in nearby streets.

    All-in-all this is a great place to stop over for a night or two if you're driving down Highway 1, and exceptional value for money. Recommended!
