Welcome to the California Dreaming Bungalow. Wake up to an ocean view right from your bed and enjoy the sound of the morning birds singing. Fall asleep to the sound of the seals barking under a star filled sky. And you will sleep well on the king-size organic wool/latex mattress... it has been named the most comfortable bed in the world by numerous guests! Enjoy your private shower with a sky window that opens to the warmth of the sun. If you feel like dancing, enjoy our eclectic vinyl collection with everything from Miles Davis to The Tubes. Does this sound too good to be true? Dare I even mention the 2 free aquarium tickets?

Superb location, good people who know the area.
It was wonderful. Both Evan and Sara were very warm and we felt very at home. It was so great for our dog. Fenced in gorgeous yard and Ocean View.....the BEST bed EVER...we would stay there again...anyday....and would recommend it to anyone. The cottage is beautiful and new....with a shower with a open air window...very zen and relaxing for sure
What a beautiful room! We LOVED our stay in Pacific Grove at Sarah and Evan's - the room was meticulous and elegant, our host was so personable and charming - we felt extremely well cared for, and definitely plan to go back. Highly, highly recommended!
Beautiful views, comfortable abode, and quite serene. I'd definitely stay again! Oh, and the bathroom/shower were amazing!
We had a wonderful stay and slept in one of the most comfortable beds. The view of the garden and out to the ocean is stunning. Evan was most helpful with local knowledge and the tickets to the aquarium are a great bonus. Also fell in love with Zeus who came to visit us every morning.
Really lovely, relaxing, and fantastic listing located very centrally to anything you'd like to do in the Monterey area. Sarah and Evan were perfect hosts: friendly and helpful while still allowing my mom and I plenty of space and time. The bungalow itself is exactly as described and more. Definitely recommend this place if you'll be visiting Monterey--the accommodations and local knowledge/insider tips we got definitely helped to make a great vacation.
My family truly enjoyed the authentic California experience staying with Evan. We loved the comfort and space in the "cottage" and felt truly at home in the house and yard. Evan's advice on where to visit was invaluable. Having two passes to the aquarium was a nice perk, too. The location of the house was fantastic for visiting Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach, and Big Sur. Staying with Evan felt like visiting family. Thank you!!!
This was our first stay with AirBnB and we are so glad it was with Sarah and Evan! They shared their lovely home with us and our experience was 10x better because of their advice during our stay. Wonderful!
Evan and Sarah were perfect hosts. Upon arrival, Evan greeted us with enthusiastic recommendations of the best trails with tips and gems only a local could offer (we were headed to Big Sur for a week of hiking). Evan also saved us from an inferior dinner we had researched beforehand and he pointed us to the BEST restaurant recommendation I have ever received from a host: if you are in Pacific Grove on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (the only days it's open) you *must* visit Julia's! Also, stay with Sarah and Evan; their bungelow is perfect!
Sarah and Evan are amazing people and great hosts! Even though I was running a bit early, Evan was accommodating enough to let me check-in. The view from the bungalow is gorgeous (as shown in their photos) and the beach is super close. The record player was a nice touch as listening to "Dark Side of the Moon" on vinyl was a trip! I definitely recommend staying with Sarah and Evan.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
