Although a short stay, made us feel at home with a beautifully furnished bathroom and well stocked kitchen. We were well kept informed way ahead of time what and who to expect during our stay which made it all the difference for us to feel comfortable as possible. Would love to go back again and try out their suggested itinerary!

We enjoyed staying at Carolyn and Dutch's place . It is a very tidy and well appointed home . The pictures do not do this home justice .

Our stay was very comfortable and true to the description. We were just passing through and didn't spend much time there, but really appreciated the easy communication and check in process. We also had our dog with us and he was comfortable there; their dog is super sweet! Great for what we needed and an easy drive to anywhere you'd want to go on the coast.

Good location in Seaside just a 2 mile drive to Monterey marina where my husband was sailing. Great communicators with check in and other correspondence. Nilla, is sweet and friendly dog whom my dog instantly liked. Never met hosts, Carolyn and Dutch, due to busy schedules, but easy stay. Loved finding the Paris Bakery in Seaside, a highlight.

Carolyn is a really down to heart person. I really enjoyed talk to her! She let us use her house like it was ours! Thank you for being an amazing host! We didn't have a chance to talk that much with Dutch but it was definitely nice meeting both of them! The room , as the house , was clean and super cozy. Definitely a place and people that I would recommend to everyone
