I am very much in love with California's Central Coast and excited to help share that experience with others. In particular I enjoy hiking, camping, big sur, and great restaurants.

We stayed 3 nights in Brians flat. It lived up to all expectations. Comfortable, clean and quiet. 10 minutes walk form Pasific Ocean, and every night we watched the sunset, We had everything to ourself. The host was discret and friendly. He had left a lot of brouchures and some food in the apartment. It was good for us, that we had some food to start with
Loved the place! Stayed four nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have wanted or needed more. Brian is an excellent host and his place was super clean and even had snacks and water for us. There was even a newspaper at the door in the mornings! My husband was in heaven. Having grown up in the area, we didn't need to ask much from him, but he was available if we had needed anything. Marina is the perfect place to stay when visiting friends and family in Santa Cruz, Salinas and Carmel! Loved our mini vacation. Thanks, Brian for allowing us to stay.
I don't know why we haven't used airbnb before, but will again and again from now on. No more noisy hotel rooms!
Brian's apartment was a great place to use a base to explore Monterey, Carmel and parts of the Big Sur drive. It was exceptionally clean and had every facility to make our stay comfortable. Brian is a particularly responsive host
Me and my husband had a great stay in this charming apartment. It was perfect! The space is very clean, open and quiet. Brian was very quick at responding to any questions and made checking in and out a breeze. We are definelty keeping this spot in our favorites for future visits to the area.
I stayed for 12 nights in Brian's rental. He was a VERY accommodating host and the listing was EXACTLY as described. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or a better host for my extended trip!! Thanks, Brian!
Overall experience was wonderful! Brian was so easy to work with and helped make our stay a pleasant one. The apartment was beautiful and very clean and the price was reasonable. I definitely recommend this apartment to others!
We would recommend Brian for sure!
Very clean apartment, Brian was always available for anything we needed. We will recommend him to all our friends in Phoenix
Our stay was great! The apartment was clean and exactly as described. Brian was very easy to communicate with and even left some snacks and drinks for us. We would definitely stay here again.
What a wonderful place this is! Brian was very helpful and accessible and provided us with all the information we needed before arriving. He was very flexible with regards to check in and out times which was great for us as we wanted to take our time coming down the coast. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and well maintained and plenty big enough for the 2 of us. It was great to have street parking available and everything was very close by (groceries, beach, etc). Brian kindly provided some magazines and information with things to do in the area which was wonderful for us tourists. We had never used AirBnB before and it was so nice of Brian to pre-approve us so quickly - we had a great experience from start to finish. We would absolutely recommend this to others and hopefully we will be back one day!
This apartment was one of the best we have ever stayed in over many years of travel to various places around the world. There was ample space. It was well furnished and very clean. The on street parking was just 50 feet away.
The location was excellent. Highway 1 was moments away. It is a limited access highway with 65 MPH speed limits. We could be in Monterey or Carmel in just about 10 minutes on the highway. It also runs up to Elkhorn Slough where we took the Elkhorn slough Safari boat trip. We would highly recommend the Safari to anyone. We saw more seals, sea lions, sea otters, and birds on this 2 hour outing than we saw in the rest of the week put together. From there it was a quick ride up to Santa Cruz on Highway 1.
Within a block and a half is a super Walmart including grocery and a park with trails around a lake. There is other shopping a minute away including a great farmers' market on Sunday right in Marina.
Ample room, clean, well appointed, and well located: I don't know what else you could ask for in accommodations when visiting the Monterey area! We would definitely stay here again or recommend it to any of our friends. The unit was very private and we did not see our host until the end when he came to pick up the key. He provided a lock box for arrival so we did not have to coordinate schedules which was a big help given all that we were trying to do on our drive down from San Francisco.
