Summer is a mix… maybe sunny, maybe foggy.
Fall is our Indian Summer – our best weather.
Winter is the local's season – sometimes crystal clear and moderate, sometimes with great storms, big waves and no tourists. OUR HOME IS A GREAT STORM HOUSE with the ocean and sky view and floor to ceiling windows! You can sit by the fireplace and watch the storm pass by... lovely...
Spring is a little bit of all of the above.
Please take good care of our much loved home. Be respectful of our neighbors and Bungalow guests. Have a really wonderful stay!
The stay at Sarah and Evan's house is really nice. The house is clean and quiet. It has a lot of plants in it, which makes the house very special for us. We love it very much. They are also very responsive when communicate with our schedule. I would like to recommend this house. :)
Yes, Sahra and Evan made a good preparation for guest, clean, and very informative. The facility was as described. Only drawback was only one bathroom for five of us.
Thank you Sahra and Evan for letting us use your house. Very good area to stay with lots of activities nearby. Wish to have more time over there.
We had a lovely time at this home. We were in touch before we got there, got the pertinent info, and found the place just fine. It's a nice quiet cul-de-sac with a long driveway. When we get out of the car and find out way in, we all just relaxed. It was so relaxing, we almost didn't go to the event we were in town for! We basically took the entire house space so we did not have a chance to meet the hosts, but we did have a text connection in case we had questions.
The garden, huge windows, and vibe of the home is incredible.
This was our first airbnb experience and it was a pleasant one! As one of us said, "It's like visiting friends, except they're not home!"
Vi følte oss straks velkommen i huset til Sarah og Evan, som var tilstede ved ankomst. Huset deres ga plass til seks voksne og sjuendemann ble plassert i boden. Vertskapet viste oss rundt i det koselige huset og forklarte alt nødvendig. Evan ga oss nyttige tips til turer i området, noe vi benyttet oss av. Han anbefalte også to spisesteder i Monterey og de viste seg å være riktig gode. Vi hadde et flott opphold i fire dager med fotturer i Big Sur-området og sykkelturer i Fort Ord. Både Monterey-området, huset og nabolaget kan varmt anbefales.
The house is really great! There's a lot of rooms, lot of lights, plants, the yard is really beautiful. But the best part in my opinion was the amazing view from the living room/yard of the bay. Having a coffee in the morning while watching the mist on the bay was definitely a nice moment for me.
It's close to the aquarium, it's close to the freeway, and there's a Trader's Joe not far away if you need some groceries.
Next time friends or family are visiting I'll definitely try to book this place again if it's available!
We stayed at the house , including the bungalow with my extended family of 9 total.
The bungalow is a lovely place to stay. The bed couldn't be more comfortable, the decor is appealing, and it has all you need. A small closet, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and more. We even danced one song a day with my husband, using their LP records. Their bathroom is so beautiful and spacey. From the bed, you can see the beautiful and panoramic view of the pacific ocean.
The house and Bungalo was the perfect size for all of us. The place is cozy with a great view to the ocean. You can tell they are environmentally friendly, and it's expressed in their house. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Sarah and Evan in person. However, they ensured through phone calls, emails , and texts that we felt welcomed and guided. They answered all of our questions. The location is perfect. We visited Carmel, Monterrey, Santa Cruz and Pacific Grove from their location. The aquarium passes were a plus as well. We took turns (2 by 2) to visit it. Overall, we had a great time!

About the Host, Sarah And Evan
Hi Fellow Airbnbers,
Evan and I moved from San Francisco to Pacific Grove thirteen years ago. Evan is an entrepreneur and I am a songwriter. When Josh and Iyla (our kids) moved out, we started Airbnb. We've been hosts for four years! We have used Airbnb throughout Europe and are happy to now be offering our own home and bungalow to wonderful people like you. Our interests are traveling, reading, hiking (Evin has hiked almost all of Big Sur) good food, interesting conversation, rock balancing, yoga, writing and music. We try to get to the beach daily where we walk our three legged blind dog Zeus. He is the coolest member of our family.
