This house had great decoration and a great layout. The hosts were very thoughtful and the neighborhood was quiet and close to everything. Would definitely stay again.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great stay here at the seaside house! We spent the weekend exploring Monterey and Carmel. The house is very convenient to both locations but not so central that parking is a pain-- there was always plenty of street parking out front. There's even a Starbucks nearby. Kierstyn was out of town, but she had Damien stay in touch with us for anything we needed. Great stay overall!
The house was charming, clean, and in a great location. We felt comfortable and our kids had a blast.
However, the note from Kierstyn had said the key would be in a certain location. It was not there. After a fairly trying travel day, this was the last thing we wanted. I called the number provided by Kierstyn and it went straight to a voicemail box. Within 10 minutes, we looked around and found the key under the doormat. I called Kierstyn back and left a message saying we found the key. But we never heard back from her (phone/email or through air b n b) about the error. That left kind of a bad taste in my mouth.
Additionally, we had let her know we were coming with our two young children. When we got in the house we found the kids' room had no curtains on the window. During a mid-June stay, it doesn't get dark until 9ish, so this was not ideal for putting excited little kids to bed. I feel like this should have been remedied or mentioned.
My experience at Damien and Kirsten's was very good. There were 3 of us and the set up was perfect. One large bedroom and one smaller one each with a private bath. The decor was charming, with a french feel. Damien was very helpful and checked in with us to make sure we were doing well and feeling comfortable.
There were no places available in Santa Cruz, so we decided to check out Seaside instead. Kierstyn's place is lovely and have great energy. She's got a knack for design and the location is close to the beach and to shops. Seaside is off the beaten path and very cool.
The place is well located to the main areas of Monterey and Pacific Grove. We were doing a friends gallery opening in Pacific Grove and my sons competition in the Sea Otter Classic at Laguna Seca. It was perfect for us. We enjoyed dining at Passion Fish and Fandango. The two bedroom, two bath arrangement worked well for us. Our son had a problem sleeping on the futon style bed in the second bedroom and ended up on the sofa instead. He was exhausted from the race and maybe hyper sensitive. It looks like they are planning to paint as there are paint marks all over. It's probably time for some refreshing. The hosts were thoughtful in leaving snacks and wine. We had a bit of a problem understanding how to set the heat. It was pretty cold until we got it going.
Great spot in a nice location. Easy to walk into town (but catch a cab back up the hill!) Thoughtful hosts who left us some tasty wine! 2nd bedroom has childrens' bunkbeds.
The place was absolutely amazing.... Very kid friendly. Close enough to the warf without all the tourists around you. Nice quiet spot and very relaxing. She is extremely welcoming. Highly recommend for a weekend or so if avaliable.
The house is awesome and perfect for a short or long stay, with friends or family! Hope you'll enjoy your stay!
Una buena hospede!!!encantada de conocerla..,
Kierstyn was a pleasure to host and I highly recommend her to any host on airbnb.
Thanks again for staying, I'm glad you had a great stay and vacation in Paris!
