Super stay. Carolyn and Dutch's house is fantastic, incredibly clean and in an ideal location to visit Monterey and the surrounding areas. Kitchen has everything required to cook and the bed is very comfortable. Highly recommend. Thanks again!

Dutch was very friendly and helpful. I'd wished that I had made time to go sailing with Dutch.

Shared bathroom and an exsisting bedroom of the owners. I got the impression it was a spare bedroom

Awesome location; a short drive to the fairgrounds or even Fisherman's Wharf. Highly recommended take a Bay Cruise with their sailing charter business. Most definitely a lovely and welcoming place. I hope and plan to be back in the future.
