  • Thank you so much Donna+Dan! The house was a perfect home base for us to explore the Monterey/Carmel area. I spent a fun girls weekend with 4 girlfriends and the house was perfectly sized and comfortable for us. They made check-in really easy and straightforward and the house was well-equipped with anything we might have needed. I highly recommend Donna+Dan's house for anyone looking for an affordable, clean and centrally located place for families or groups.

  • Donna and Dan's place was fabulous. It was a large, clean, open house with lots of sun and light. The beds were big and comfortable, along with the lounge area. The kitchen was big and easy to use.
    Donna and Dan we most helpful prior to and following our stay with them.

    Thank you !

  • This is a great spacious house just a few miles from the beach in Seaside. The house is big and roomy and has everything you would need. We enjoyed our stay here. It is one of the nicer houses in the neighborhood, but it is convenient to restaurants, grocery stores and downtown Monterey. I would recommend this house if you know the area already.

    June 2014
  • Dan and Donna's home (email hidden) to house us during our family road trip! The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked for our needs. It was centrally located so that we were able to take several day trips from Santa Cruz to Big Sur.

  • Donna & Dan were great hosts and their house was perfect for our weekend in the Monterey area. The house was very nice, clean, set up the way we had requested. The deck was our favorite part of the house becuase the weather was nice and there is an ocean view.
    The location of the house was great! We took a walk around the neighborhood and found the liquor store/market around the corner that makes these amazing deli sandwiches! The market also had eggs and some produce which was convenient. The house is walking distance to the fairgrounds and a short drive down to Cannery Row. Lots to do near by.
    The house has a keypad entry which was also super convenient when part of our group wanted to head back to the house- no fuss with trading off or keeping track of keys. I also liked that the house was fully stocked with pots, pans, baking tins, etc., as we took full advantage of their kitchen with big breakfasts every morning. We had come from 2 days of camping in Big Sur so it was also nice that there was a washer and dryer available to do some laundry.
    We had a bit of a mishap on our part- as one of the people in our group managed to bend and damage a bed frame. I was not aware of the damage leaving the house but Donna informed me of it shortly after our departure. She handled the incident very well through the airbnb website to report the damage. We ended up giving up a fair portion of our deposit to cover the damage and I was very happy with the whole process and outcome of the incident. It's good to know that when things like this do happen, it is not too big of a deal to overcome when those involved take the necessary steps to resolve the issue correctly- although I do feel terrible that it even happened in the first place!

    All in all, I would highly recommend this rental and Donna & Dan as hosts!

  • Lovely house, as described. 20 minutes to Monterey. Good for 2 couples and 2 children.

    Response from Donna & Dan:

    Thanks for the positive review..I commute to Monterey Bay Aquarium and the drive is closer to 12 minutes. Thanks for staying with us!

    May 2014
  • Great "homey" home. Well furnished and very clean/useful. Great stay! Very responsive owners and it was exactly what we needed. Beautiful light, comfortable carpet, great living room / dining room, large bedrooms. Awesome.

    One aspect to note is that the house is on the top of a long hill (just be aware), which gives it good views but a long walk. The neighborhood is also not the best for walking around in at night (I never felt unsafe).

    April 2014
  • We were altogether eight people spending the weekend in the house. There was lots of space for us. The house was clean, nice and quiet. Our kids were mesmerized by the 'soft stairs' and and the huge screen in bedroom. The communication with Donna and Dan is easy and we got answers to our questions very quickly. We definitely can recommend this house.

    April 2014
  • We stayed in the Seaside Sunshine for a ladies spa weekend for two nights. The house is spacious, bright, and clean, with plenty of comfortable beds and two bathrooms. The location is just a short drive to Monterey and Carmel, which made mini-excursions out and about easy. We took ample use of the well-stocked kitchen (there's a well-stocked tea drawer for guests!) and enjoyed sunning on the patio out back. I didn't meet Donna and Dan, but they were timely and pleasant in our communications coordinating the visit. Thanks for the great stay!

    April 2014
  • Dan and Donna's house was a great and comfortable place to stay for our family of five. It is roomy and an ideal "base" for excursions to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, etc. The guest passes to the aquarium were a super bonus, too.

    Our hosts were organized, easy to reach, and not intrusive at all.

    The house itself is large, with three bedrooms (one downstairs) with comfy beds. The second bedroom upstairs is a tad quirky, with the projector screen doubling as the window shade, and enough beds for four in that room alone. But our kids enjoyed staying there and slept well.

    Bathrooms (one up one down) each were good. Upstairs had a shower/tub combo, downstairs had roomy shower.

    Kitchen had most of what you'd typically need to prepare meals, and laundry was easy to use.

    The neighborhood had a mixture of updated and older homes, and felt safe and quiet. Grocery, drug store, etc. are all nearby (we had a car).

    This was yet another positive airbnb experience for us. If you (email hidden) to stay near Monterey, this is a safe bet. And Donna and Dan are reliable hosts.
