The view pales next to our great neighbors, they are the best. Elvira accross the street, I call her the "Go 2 Girl" will greet you with a smile and always a friend. She is also available for child care, shopping, directions etc.

Lorrain and Jim, next door, have lived there almost as long as Dave and I. They are enjoying their family and retired life.

One of our favorite things to do is play pinnocle with Billy and Roni, who live around the corner. We always laugh alot while playing which what makes it still so much fun. Dave was best man in their wedding 45 years ago.

The girls in the neighborhood walk almost every day or eve and welcome you to join them if you like to walk. Their serious about their walks and have been walking together for over 8 years. Last year they all walked in the Big Sur Marathon. This year Lorraine and Renee did it again.

Updated and quiet home on the seaside hill. Great view of the bay and city lights. Home was comfortable and clean. Aquarium passes were an added bonus that no one should pass up. Thanks Patty and Dave.

This is our favorite vacation spot. Every year we look forward to the views from the front porch with our morning coffee. There is not a single thing we would change about the house . It is perfect for families !!!!!

Charming home with an amazing hillside view of the bay/ocean. Wished we could have stayed longer!!! This is a great option if your are going to Laguna Seca - only a 15 minute drive, and plenty of street parking. We'll be back next year!

We loved Patty's place! It was super clean and well stocked and the view is amazing! I was decorating a wedding cake for 205 people the first night we were there and the kitchen was spacious and all the cakes fit in the refrigerator! That is a great refrigerator. If anyone asks, an 18" x 12" cake DOES fit in there along with a 4 tier wedding cake! We appreciated the clear labels showing where everything was and great communication. Thanks again for a perfect stay!

Very comfortable home and an easy drive into Monterey especially to the Wharf parking lots. Weather was a bit foggy so didn't use the garden but it looked good. Passes for the Aqurium were a real bonus. Cindys restaurant is nice in there too. Only suggestion would be a folder with the necessary info like bin collection and where lightbulbs are etc.

The house is just a short drive from Monterey. It's a beautiful, cosy home that's been well-maintained and very clean. It had everything my family needed for a fabulous stay. We really appreciated the use of the aquarium passes and the travel tips left for guests.

Dave, our daughter Krysti and I have had many happy years in this home. When we lived here Dave was the golf professional at Spyglass Hill in Pebble Beach for seven years and I worked at the Del Monte Hyatt. Dave later partnered with a friend and bought a limousine service and car rental. I was president of the PTA of Monterey High School when we bought a building (my project) 450 miles away. That was 27 years ago. I really thought 6 months hard work, and you then "just collect rent". Sounds perfect, Boy! was I wrong. It is still alot of work. After three years, reality set in. Dave and I decided one of the two investments had to go. We decided the commercial center was the investment to keep so we sold to our partner and have been in So. Cal ever since.

We kept the house to share with family and friends, but we were all too busy to vacation. After a couple of years we decided to rent it out full time.
We rented it to our dear friend, Henry (50) & Diane who lived in it for over 20 years. Henry was Hawaiin and used to be Don Ho's bodyguard. Remember, "Tiny Bubbles" Many luaus and pigs cooked in the back yard Hawaiin style.

Before we rented our home to our friends we stored many things in the shed (time capsule) in the backyard. Not really remembering what was packed in the shed or expecting anything to be any good after over twenty years, we were pleasantly surprised. A step back in time. Memories!!! We have so many, many happy memories in this home and count our blessings for them.

After our friends moved to North Carolina last year, we thought we would work on the house and prepare it to sell. Being back in Monterey and sitting on the couch looking out over the bay, my husband said, "I don't think we should sell this house"
the view is so beautiful in the day and even more spectacular at night, It just draws you in, a calming pleasure. We had forgotten. While restoring the house I learned about Airbnb and the rest is history, and more new memories.

Dave and I love Jazz and we have been sitting in the same seats (with an original group of 60 friends) for over 35 years at the Monterey Jazz Festival. We also love to travel, golf and enjoy our houseboat at the Havasu Springs Resort,

We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
