We really enjoyed our stay at landmark house. Jesse and Jocelyne were very friendly and welcoming. The room was amazing and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with homemade granola and honey from their own bees. We would definitely recommend staying here.
Me and my friend had an absolutely great stay at Jesse and Jocelyne home. The bedroom was spacious and very conform ale, the location is very quiet and convenient. I fell in love for the garden and the chickens too! Jesse is a wonderful host who spend time chatting to us during breakfast and gave us tips of what to do and see in the area. Jocelyne is a lovely lady always with a smile. This is a cozy welcoming place and a family with many stories to tell.
We had a great stay in the historic house. Joyceline and Jesse are great hosts. Unfortunatly we don't meet Annemarie. Helpfull, friendly and we had great conversations. All is very clean and tenderly arranged. We give a high recomanding for this place. And Jesse, after 5 hours LA i agree completly. Next time 4 days Monterey and 2 days LA. All the best for you!
Great house and environment! We had very clean and sweet room and enjoyed breakfast in the morning.
The place of Annemary, Jesse and Jocelyne is absolutely perfect. The house and garden are jewels, the room would be the pride of any 5* hotel. Jocelyne and Jesse are great hosts and we enjoyed to talk to them at breakfast. Our expectations were more than fulfilled and we can wholeheartedly recommend the place to anyone.
Even if it was only for one night we really enjoyed our stay in Seaside! We didn't had the chance to meet Anne-Marie but Jocelyne and her son Jesse are very welcoming and easy to chat with! The house is very very nice, clean and offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The bathroom is shared but there is an extra restroom with a sink if the main batroom is occupied. The breakfast is also very good and generous, made with mostly from organic and gluten-free products. We really recommend this place, ideally located next to Monterey (ther offer discounts for the aquarium as well), Carmel and Big Sur.
I'm pretty sure there is no better place to stay in the area!!! The house, the room and the bathroom are spotlessly clean! Jesse and Jocelyne are adorable and very welcoming people, they really enjoy being hosts! Breakfast with many options, I coudn't eat them all.
And I love the fact that they are artists and they care about the environment :)
