The Space

Location, Location and Location!

My house is in GREAT LOCATION which is ONLY a few blocks/10-15 minutes WALK to Old Fishman Wharf and Cannery Row/Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Note: This listing, the same group of guests will take entire 2 bed, 1 bath apartment. The listed price is for the using of 2 queen size beds for sleeping. Please let us know before booking if your group needs more than 2 queen size beds. Extra fee may be applicable in this case. After booking, if more people are coming or more beds are needed, please inform us ASAP so that new price can be negociated. Failure to do so may result in the denial of service or increase of price.

Our vacation apartment is fully furnished with kitchenette, coffee, selection of teas, and each morning a self-served continental breakfast is included(i.e. yogurt, fruit juice, bread.)

We also live in the house from time to time (when it is not rented out). Therefore, we may left some personal stuff, e.g., clothings, tooth brush, tooth paste, etc in the closets and some of our food in the refridgerator.

We do advertise at other places. Some dates may become unavailable, please contact us ASAP.

For families with babies, we have a pack and play for rent. ($5/night)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I brought my son (back from his first year of college) and 4 of his friends to stay one night here so that we could visit the Tentacles exhibit at the aquarium. The location is a nice walk to the aquarium, cannery row, and lots of restaurants on Lighthouse Ave. When we first arrived, we saw two deer (and a cat) across the street - nice welcoming committee! The apartment was very clean, neat and well appointed. The beds were comfortable and there is a futon/couch in the living room. Lots of street parking plus convenient parking behind the apartment. Perfect for a quick getaway! Jean gave us a lot of great information and was very responsive. Thank you!

  • Jean's place was very clean and comfortable. She was a great host who communicated well with any questions that I may have had. The deal she offers in renting out the Aquarium passes was awesome also!

  • Our moms really enjoy their stay cause they can speak Chinese with Jean. No doubt this is a perfect place to stay if you drive along CA route 1 just like us. Convenient location and private rooms. Strongly recommend!

  • this is a clean apartment with lots of parking space. It was perfect for our group that needed a place to sleep and make dinners. Jean was easy to communicate with and if we come back to Monterey, we will be in touch!

  • Great location in Monterey with walking distance to most sights, shops etc. The apartment met our basic needs, even though the standard was a bit low. The biggest problem was that it was dirty - the carpets, in corners, in cupboards etc. Smaller problems were slow wifi and that the included breakfast had expired over a week before our arrival... Jean was quick in answering all our questions. Included aquarium tickets were great! Overall an ok place to stay.

  • We had a great stay in Monterey. The communication with Jean has been great. She too offered that we could borrow some pass for the aquarium so that we didn't have to pay the full price.
    The apartment is very spacious which was perfect for us!
    Walking distance to Cannery Row. We would stay again.
    Thanks :)

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Monterey and out stay at Jean's Coastal House. It is located walking distance to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, and the beach. Can't wait to return!
