Interaction with Guests
We do work a lot and may not be home most of the time, but we love chatting with our guests if they are up for it. The guests we've had on Airbnb are so interesting!
We like that there is a youthful, working-class vibe...kinda like an early Bruce Springstein song.
We are located one block from a Monterey Salinas Bus stop.
No smoking inside We also ask that no ashes be left in garbage bins inside the house. Please do not park in front of our elderly neighbor's house directly across the street from the front of the cottage.
We had a great experience here! We didn't get to meet Dutch, but Carolyn was lovely. Communication was great. The property was super clean and accurately described. Their dog Nilla was super sweet and well behaved with our dog. We only stayed one night, but if we were here longer I could see spending nights in the fenced in yard relaxing. Easy access to Monterey Bay and Carmel-by-the-sea. Recommended!
Todo es según la descripción, la cama es sencillamente sensacional. La perra Nilla, directamente es un humano, no te das cuenta que está presente. Pasamos solo una noche, consultamos un rato antes del llegar, no puedo describir mucho màs, pero volvería sin problemas.
Nice house. Easily accessible. Bring earplugs as the house is near a very busy road.
Carolyn & Dutch made it very easy and pleasant to stay with them. The room and accommodations had everything we (my Corgi and I) could've needed. They were both friendly and I enjoyed talking with them as well. I only stayed for one night, but would definitely come back and stay again for longer. Thanks Carolyn & Dutch!

About the Host, Carolyn & Dutch
I am a community college instructor at Monterey Peninsula College and special programs director at the Monterey Institute of International Studies . My husband, Dutch, runs a public sailing club, Monterey Bay Sailing, on Old Fisherman's Wharf and many of our guests choose to go out for a bay cruise or dinner cruise while in town. We have a mixed lab/shepard dog named Nilla who is very friendly and quiet.
