This cozy cottage is located less than 1 mile from the ocean (and has a peek of the water from the front porch). The home has a modern kitchen, two bedrooms, one bath, a fenced yard, dog door, washer/dryer, and ample street parking.
Dogs over 2 years old can stay free of charge. Our gentle lab, Nilla (3 years), lives with us.
A self-serve breakfast is included. Guest room includes free toiletries.
You can rent a room for $89/night (varies by season) with queen bed or the entire home for $275. The entire home sleeps 5 including the living room sofa.
Many of our guests choose to sail a bay cruise or lesson with our family sailing club, Monterey Bay Sailing on Old Fisherman's Wharf. Trips begin at only $39/25 kids. Make sailing reservations at (831) 372-SAIL (7245) or by internet.

We are 3 miles from downtown Monterey; 5 miles from Pacific Grove, and 6 miles from Carmel. Guests without a car can take a 20 minute bus ride (stop is one block from our home) to downtown Monterey. Biking and walking to locations around the Peninsula is also always an option as we have wonderful weather!
The house was very cozy and Dutch welcomed me warmly. I brought my 5 year old black lab with me and Dutch was very accommodating with her (even though she can be kind of obnoxious sometimes).
Far too expensive for a tiny room with very limited privacy in rather unpleasant neighborhood.
If you have 92 USD (that’s how much one night costs with airbnb commission), you might consider searching for a better place.
I was disappointed. The most expensive night during our 3 week stay in California, and also the most disappointing.
We stayed for 4 nights. Dutch and Carolyn are friendly people although we didnt see much of Carolyn.
The place is clean and Dutch was friendly and welcoming. He works until late every day and thus we had the place to ourselves for most of the time.
It was rather cold though.
The best part was the sailing trip. Much recommended.
We arrived later than expected but were given easy entry instructions. Their home is very comfy and we felt at home staying in their extra bedroom. We especially liked their fenced yard as we had 2 small dogs with us. Their dog is very relaxed and sweet and had no problems with our 2 dogs. We were able to park on the street right in front of their house which was convenient. Carolyn was very sweet and Dutch offered us a chance to go sailing with him but we had planned on seeing the area and going to the Aquarium that day.
Thanks to Carolyn and Dutch for an easy place to stay near Big Sur when needed. Clean, nice, flexible.
A quiet and nice place in Seaside, just a short drive from Monterey. The house had everything we needed and check-in was very easy.

A very nice place to stay! Carolyn and Dutch were great hosts and Nilla was gorgeous. We enjoyed our stay very much, thank you once again!
Thanks to Carolin´s and Dutch´s advices, we have enjoyed an unforgettable time in Monterey, but to short! This has been a great pleasure to share some time with them and we look forward to meet them again. One very great way to discover the neighborhood. We want to come back. Next time we go to sail with Dutch. Marion & Chiara
The place is a good value for exploring Monterey. As other people had stated, the bed takes up most of your room and you aren't on the peninsula, but that is why you aren't paying peninsula prices and hopefully you read what you are getting in to before you sign up. We had our dog with us and their dog was as sweet as can be. The bed is comfortable, strong wi-fi and the whole place (not just your room) is very clean. Ample space for our luggage for a few days.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
