We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was lovely and just like in the pictures. Annemarie was a great host, they have thought of everything at their place, great attention to detail and a tasty breakfast. Thanks for having us.
Wonderful hosts, beautiful home, outstanding breakfast, great local advice and just a short drive to Monterey. We highly recommend! Thanks to Annemarie, Jesse and Jocelyn.
The listing for this lovely house was two dimensional...During our stay we got all three dimensions of welcome, gracious home, lovely hosts and more that really can't be described. This home and garden are an oasis -- a world apart from surroundings. We enjoyed coming down to breakfast (delicious!), meeting the other guests, and having Annemarie and Jocelyn sit and converse with us. We had easy access to Monterrey, Carmel, and Big Sur, with Annemarie's suggestions for restaurants and areas to hike through being right on.
We'll be back!
Thank you for such an enjoyable stay! The room was perfect and super clean! Large enough for us both to spread out :-) We loved chatting with everyone for breakfast (which was perfect. Loved the homemade granola) I even learned how to French Press coffee! :-) The location was easy to find. What a NEAT property! We hope to come back soon! Blessings to you!
