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.
We do not allow smoking or pets to maintain a clean atmosphere for those who may be allergic. However, there are several seating areas around the house for those who enjoy smoking. Elvira, if available,who lives directly accross the street will allow your dog or cat to stay in her yard. She is also an excellant source for child care, shopping, flower arranging, directions, etc. She is a retired certified masseuse. My grandchildren call her Omie (granny in German).
This is the second year we have stayed at this house. Beautiful, comfortable, easy place to stay. Always a pleasure. Thanks again!!!
We had a great time in Monterey. The house is very well decorated and every room is quite comfortable. All of the attractions in the area are a short drive away. My kids also really enjoyed the spacious back yard. Would definitely stay here again.
Our first airbnb experience was a great one. Patty responded very quickly with any question I had. The house was very well kept and had beautiful views. Our toddler couldn't get enough of the backyard he loved playing in the sand! All in all a great experience and we can't wait to do this some more.
This was the perfect place they have a great view it's nicely decorated there are a lot of amenities they have a nice backyard a life-size chess board horseshoes areas for children to play it's probably the nicest house in that neighborhood
Patty was an excellent host. Throughout the booking process, vacation planning, and our actual stay, she was communicative and accommodating. The property was exactly as described and her instructions were clear. It was the perfect place for our family of three! The house was clean, well decorated, and had plenty of room for us. Our 19-month-old loved exploring the grounds and playing there. This was our first Airbnb experience and we can't imagine going back to hotels after this!
What a great place to stay when visiting Monterey! The house is lovely and well cared for. Everything was exceptionally clean; beds were comfortable; pillows, blankets, and towels were plentiful. The photos of the house are accurate. It really is as nice as the photos depict. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Since there were four of us (two couples), it was great to have the extra bathroom. Yes, it was small, but not so tiny as to be unusable. We weren't there long enough to make use of the backyard, but it would certainly be perfect for families with kids - a picnic area and barbecue pit, swing set, basketball hoop, horseshoes, chess board. Amazing! The view of the bay from the living room window, especially at night with all the lights, was wonderful. Patty was very easy to work with - she responded promptly and left very clear instructions in the house about how to work everything. And how nice to have not just two, but four (!!) complimentary aquarium tickets! Thank you, Patty, for making us feel so welcome. We hope to come back soon!
We had a great stay at Patty's. The house and backyard were great! With three kids this was the perfect place, especially with the four aquarium passes. Everything was in great shape and very clean. The fire pit in the backyard was also a nice treat. The kids loved roasting marshmallows. We would definitely return for another stay in the future.
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.
