Really nice stay. The room was great and we shared the bathroom with two others. The breakfast was amazing, yoghurt and homemade granola and nuts, bagels breads and the best chocolate chip cookie we ever tasted. jesse was very helpful and a great host. Absolutely recomend this place.
Such a lovely house and family! The only regret we could have about our stay would be that we booked a single night only... Very comfy room, amazing breakfast, amazing hosts! Will come again :)
Amazing room and home, very spacious private quarters, a perfect bed, water supplied and sea views. Easy to find, private off street parking and continental breakfast. The host was very generous with her time meeting us during breakfast.
The best part of our stay in Monterey! We really felt at home in this spacious, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean bedroom, the bed and linen being particularly comfortable, even by American standards. The immediate surroundings are very pleasant, very quiet, ideal for a good night's rest. We also enjoyed our (delicious) breakfasts with Annemarie, who is a kind, considerate hostess, very attentive to her guests' well-being, and who gave us much useful information about where to go in the Monterey area. We were also sensitive to the fact that all the other guests that we met were clearly as happy as we were to stay in the house, which made for a very pleasant atmosphere. Overall it was like staying with friends! One of our best Airbnb experiences, thank you so much to the three of you!
What a wonderful stay at the historic landmark! Annemarie was a great host, who perfectly took care about everything possible. The room was very nice and clean. The house is perfectly located close to Monterey and the Seaside ocean beaches.
Oue hosts provided fresh water in our room daily. Cookies were also left out for guests and a lovely breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, various breads, tea and coffee were also provided.
The room was amazing and the space overall was very welcoming. I didn't really interact with the hosts until the next morning, but they were accessible via email regarding arrival details, which I appreciated. I arrived a little bit late, so it was natural that they weren't around to greet me.
This airbnb experience felt a little bit like a more traditional Bed and Breakfast experience. It was only my third airbnb experience and the first two were much more personal, but my experience with Annemarie, Jessie and Jocelyn was very positive.
