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.
