The Space

appx 1 mile from ocean, spectacular view of Monterey Bay , day or night. The house has been completely remodeled. It has a big sandy yard, bbq, glassed in sun deck, basketball hoop, large chess/checkers, swing set and jungle gym. There is also a washer/dryer. The kitchen is complete with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, flatware and utensils. There is also a microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron & board, made beds and towels.

The rental also includes four guest passes to the Monterey Bay Acquarium.

The View, whether sitting on the couch or standing you see the whole Bay. In the evenings and early mornings the lights around the bay, and the bay are both romantic and picturesque.

The yard is safe and family friendly.

15 minutes or less to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Monterey Wharf, downtown Monterey or Carmel-by-the-Sea.

5 minutes to Shopping, Costco, Target, Grocery stores, Restaurants, etc.

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.

  • This house was perfect for our stay in Monterey. My kids had a blast in the backyard and we enjoyed cooking in their beautifully remodeled kitchen. We will be back!

  • Beautiful location, well maintained, and very comfortable. The ourtdoor space was great! We used the home as a home base for trip to Big Sur and a day at the Aquarium. It was perfect for our needs!

  • Me and my family came to Monterey to attend a Spartan race. This place was perfect for us. Very nice inside and out. I wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely come back and rent from Patty again. Hands down Patty is a great host :)

    Response from Patty:

    Dear Lyle, You did not actually pay me, you paid Airbnb. I do not receive any money until you actually arrive. Airbnb is an amazing company and you should have no problem receiving your refund, however it may take a little time to process. I am not part of the process. We look forward to hosting your visit in the future and appreciated your interest in our humble home.

  • Clean and comfortable for all 6 of us. Loved the backyard! Cute second tiny full bathroom (it's like being in an airplane).

  • The perfect spot to recover and get a perfect nights sleep during the conference held in Monterrey.
    The three of us would have one bedroom each, and do meetings and meals in the living room. A cab from downtown is around $ 15
    Thanks again for booking our request on a very short notice.

  • We had an amazing time at the Monterey Bay View House. Patty was a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole experience. The house itself was absolutely beautiful and cozy and really helped us to feel at home. The views from the front porch and the living room were stunning, especially as the sun was setting. The outdoor spaces were so inviting that we could have spent a week outside taking advantage of all the seating and activities. The beds were comfortable and cozy and everything was in great shape. We would love to come back to stay longer next time.

  • From the start Patty was very quick to respond and very helpful in answering some questions I had. My wife and I stayed at the View House for our honeymoon and it was just perfect. The size is big enough for a family, but not too large -- we both felt very comfortable and it was easy to get a grasp on the layout. The backyard is really great and kid friendly, with the firepit (perfect for making smores!), extra seating, and just natural beauty and yes the views of the bay are perfect. Seaside was just the kind of town we needed for the getaway.

    As a tip, we recommend visiting the shopping center on Ord Grove where the Target and Supermarket are -- it took us a little bit to figure out where to buy supplies and these turned out to be great for the week.

  • Had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the house. The view was amazing and much nicer than expected, based on what you see in the ads. Patty was very responsive to the few questions we had planning our trip. The second "full" bath is the smallest I've every seen, but the main bath is beautiful and more that sufficient. The price was probably under market for this home. Cudos to AirBnB for their professional liaison.

About
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.
