Active lifestyle, to bed early, up early, trying to garden, bake and keep the house.
Hillary (and Rosy the cat) were very good hosts. The room is pretty basic and the bathroom is down the hall. But I must admit I slept well because I made my husband sleep on the fold-out bed, which is not a great bed. The scones & coffee were delicious and we had a very nice discussion about potential ingredients to go into the carrot soup she was making. So if you're the kind of person who enjoys hanging out in someone's kitchen (which we both are) it's a friendly place to stay. Also great location for wandering through Asilomar and out to the beach, down to Pacific Grove's main street etc.
This was exactly as advertised. The twin bed was very comfortable. The location is great. I would recommend to anyone.
Hillary was a great host. I stayed with her while attending a conference at Asilomar, which was an easy 15 minute walk away. She picked me up and dropped me off at the airport and provided scones and coffee in the mornings. The house and room are simple but comfortable and totally adequate.
Staying with Hillary was great! I was in town to drive down to Big Sur and explore the beauty of the area, and Hillary's hospitality was a big part in making my weekend wonderful and relaxing. She was fast with responding to questions that I had, warmly greeted me when I arrived, and even offered me a glass of wine because she had read my profile and saw that I enjoy it! She was helpful and friendly while still giving me my privacy. The room was cozy, and the bed was the most comfortable twin bed I've ever experienced! From the tray of tea and scones in the morning, to the lemon water and daily newspapers in my room, to the helpful suggestions on places to go and prettiest route to take, I can't recommend Hillary and her room enough!
Hilary was extremely accommodating during our stay. We needed to move our check-in time up on the day we arrived and she was immediately willing to do so which I greatly appreciated, Her house is very cute & she made us feel right at home. The scones she baked in the morning were such a sweet and delicious touch! Thank you again for your hospitality!
Hilary is amazing! Vibrant, delightful, friendly and welcoming. The room was all I could have wanted and her personality was exactly what I imagined my first airbnb experience. Thank you.
We spent 2 nights in Hillary's home in Pacific Grove and loved it! Hillary is a wonderful host, from the scones to the dinner recommendations to her lending us her bikes, we felt so welcome from start to finish! The room is at the back of the house and very private, it is very clean and spacious. Hillary really helped us maximize our time in Pacific Grove by recommending things that we should do and places that we should see. We had such a great time in Pacific Grove and it was so nice to have such a relaxing and welcoming place to go home to at the end of a long day! Her dog (Oreo) and cat (Rosy) are awesome little cuddle bugs too!
Hillary was a great host. She was very helpful and gave us great tips (she helped us organize our small pick-nick at the beach). The warm scones in the morning were definitely a very nice "bonus". Thank you Hillary!
I cannot recommend Hillary Bennet highly enough! My roommate and I ended up taking a last-minute trip down to Santa Cruz and Big Sur and stumbled upon Hillary's place while making some light plans. We arrived at her place without a clue of what to do that evening and the next day, but Hillary provided excellent recommendations that ended up making our trip all the more special.
Hillary's house is a five-minute drive from Asilomar Beach, and centrally located to dining in town. Her generosity and hospitality cannot be emphasized enough; she had lemon water waiting for us when we arrived, fresh towels folded on the beds, and a wine key ready for us to take with us to the beach as we watched the sunset. And, like many others here have mentioned, the fresh scones and coffee in the morning were phenomenal!
Thanks, Hillary, for making our first Airbnb experience so memorable!
A very friendly host, clean shared bathroom, and great hot scones and coffee in the morning. Central to restaurants, shops, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Would definitely go back again.
