This Ocean nearby house is a spacious 2 beds, 1 full bath, 1 full kitchen, 1 bright living room with OCEAN VIEW from front deck! You can even see your car parked in front of my house when you are walking by the ocean. My house is in a historical Spanish style just COMPLETELY remolded in June 2012. All new painting, new carpet. Almost all the furniture and bedding are NEW. The house has two units; the host family lives in one unit, the guests live in another.
Ask us about availability of renting Monterey Bay Aquarium passes for half price ($20 each).
In this unit, there are 2 quiet bedrooms and a laundry room with washer and dryer. In the full-size bathroom, the shower, bathtub and toilet are with a door and lock. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a soap bar are provided. Wireless Internet access and Cable TV are available. Each bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, one night stand, lamps, and other furniture. Extra pull-out futon is also available in living room. We also live in the apartment from time to time (when it is not rented out). Therefore, we may leave some personal stuff, e.g., clothing, tooth brush, tooth paste, etc in the closets and some of our food in the refrigerator.
Your vacation apartment is fully furnished with kitchenette, coffee, selection of teas. I have served breakfast for 2.5 year, while only less than 30% guests have eaten our continental breakfast since most of them prefer to buy their own. Since lots of food were wasted,I am NO longer to provide breakfast in 2015.
In the rare of the unit, there is a private parking lot for our guests. The parking lot can easily hold 3-4 cars/SUVs.

Staying at Jeans house was a last minute thing and we were very happy she could accommodate us. Her place is clean, well kept and close in to just about anything one would like to do in Monterey. We to public transit into Carmel and the walk to the bust stop is minutes away. Very nice place to stay and be in Monterey!
Jean's place is very close to downtown. We didn't realize it until the last day of our stay. The coastal trail 4 blocks away connecting the Coastal Guard Pier and the Fisherman's Wharf is very beautiful at sunset. You can see a lot of birds and even the otter floating on the sea. The Thai restaurant 2 blocks away is very tasty and priced reasonably (best Pad Thai I've ever had). Jean is very easygoing and friendly. She gave us a lot of useful suggestions about touring around Monterey, Highway 1 and Yosemite. We also had many great conversations about everyday life. She also arranged discounted tickets to the aquarium for us. I highly recommend her place if you are staying in Monterey or touring the north part of highway 1.
Jean was really nice. The house was clean and even though Jean was here we had our privacy. The neighbourhood was okay and walkable to the main streets! Cute little house!
Good option if you want to stay in Monterey on a budget. The room was very clean and quiet. Well equiped kitchen. Great deal for a 1-night stop when on a roadtrip :)
Jean welcomed me in to her home. I shared the upper floor with her. The location was just a few blocks from the Monterey Bay Aquaraium, which I will remember next time I want to stay overnight when I am visiting there.
The apartment was gorgeous with blue and white decor in the style of a beach house. The room was a good size for two people and the bathroom was clean, with a great shower and light and airy. Good location, quite central, and the availability of off road parking was great for us. Thank you Jean for having us.
