Amazing place! The space itself is cozy, tasteful, and stocked with pretty much anything a guest might need. Floor to ceiling windows just bathe the room in sunlight. Great location and ease of access as well. Our host was very responsive and communicative to any question we had. Thanks again helaine!
Helaine's studio is a lovely, bright room attached to the back of her house with direct access to a cute, kind of whimsical garden/patio area. My partner and I enjoyed our two-night stay here very much: we found it very comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated. Because our stay was short, we used the mini kitchenette area to store and reheat leftovers; if we'd been there for a longer time we would not have been able to do much cooking, but it was useful for our purposes. Helaine left a lot of clear instructions, so we knew exactly what to do despite not having the pleasure of meeting her in person. The neighborhood seemed safe, quiet, and well-situated. Thanks, Helanie!
Helaine's studio was perfectly cozy and everything that my friend and I needed on our short two night stay. The garden was delightful and serene. Although we didn't get a chance to meet Helaine, she was wonderful at communicating with us about instructions for the place and recommendations for the area. Would definitely stay again!
Thanks Zeina - come back any time! :)
Helaine was a great host! Her studio was cozy and bed gave us a good night's rest. She had an electric hot water pot, coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, and dinnerware for you to use. The shower was great and she had a nice stock of toiletries in case we forgot something. The neighborhood was safe and quiet. We would definitely stay again! Thanks Helaine!
Helaine's studio was perfect! Clean, cute and a book filled with useful information about Monterey! Thanks again and I will definitely be back the next time I'm up north!!
We didn't get a chance to meet Helaine but everything was in place and as expected. And a great night sleep on our drive down the coast!
Helaine's space is so beautiful! It was well designed, even has beautiful art work on the walls. She has a binder prepared that is full of useful information about the area, recommended restaurants with menus, places to take your dog, sights to see, etc. It was really helpful! The bed was super comfy and there was more than enough room for the pull out bed, too. We loved starting our day off in the beautifully kept garden and then exploring the Big Sur area all afternoon. Overall a wonderful place to stay for 2 people!
the apartment is clean and nicely decorated. the host organized the reception very well.
This place was awesome. It is quite cute with a nice little courtyard right outside the private entrance. The bed is very comfortable with soft sheets and extra pillows. It's also quiet. There are a bunch of "goodies" in the bathroom which are basically beauty supplies of all types. I love that!!! That is really a huge extra. I'd stay at Helaine's place again for sure.
Helaine was super communicative during this entire process, her private studio was impeccably clean and organized. She made it so easy to be a guest, we are really pleased by our experience there. It was a quiet place to spend some time away from home.
Thanks Jing - come back any time!
It was a delight to have Helaine back as a guest. She is "the best".
It was a pleasure to have Helaine visit again. Se is the perfect guest and I look forward to seeing her and her son Harry when they come back again.
It was so nice to see Helaine again and yes, she is the perfect guest.
It was a delight to have Helaine here as a guest. She was thoughtful, fun and loved my old butterfly chairs enough to take them off my hands. I'll look forward to seeing her again.
Great hosts make even better guests. Helaine & her son Harrison were kind, considerate, smart, appreciative & we really enjoyed our brief chats. Our only regret, is that they did not stay for a week. They will always be welcomed back to our home. Many Blessings
Helaine has the perfect guest room and is the perfect hostess for someone looking to enjoy the best of Monterey. She knows everything about the area and the events and folks that make it happen here on the Monterey Peninsula. She is also a great chef, writer and designer so you are in for a treat when you stay at her home.
Helaine is a gracious hostess with a lovely home and garden patio. An intelligent, multi-faceted woman who is also a terrific actress with a vast knowledge of gardening as well as activities to suit you and recommendations for great places to eat!
Helaine is a gracious hostess and has a lovely home that anyone would feel lucky to visit!
I've known Helaine for more than 15 years, as a friend and business partner - we had a boutique organic vegetable stand located in a historic artichoke barn in Moss Landing. Everything she touches is first-class! Helaine maintains the highest possible standards for esthetics and ethics, and you couldn't ask for a more loyal and honest person. Elegance and hospitality define her - I've had more to-die-for dinners at Helaine's house than I can possibly count. You can be sure that you will feel welcomed and pampered during your stay at Helaine's. She is definitely a cut above!
