Hey, I’m Patty!

Hacienda Heights, California, United States · Member since September 2012

Dave, our daughter Krysti and I have had many happy years in this home. When we lived here Dave was the golf professional at Spyglass Hill in Pebble Beach for seven years and I worked at the Del Monte Hyatt. Dave later partnered with a friend and bought a limousine service and car rental. I was president of the PTA of Monterey High School when we bought a building (my project) 450 miles away. That was 27 years ago. I really thought 6 months hard work, and you then "just collect rent". Sounds perfect, Boy! was I wrong. It is still alot of work. After three years, reality set in. Dave and I decided one of the two investments had to go. We decided the commercial center was the investment to keep so we sold to our partner and have been in So. Cal ever since.

We kept the house to share with family and friends, but we were all too busy to vacation. After a couple of years we decided to rent it out full time.
We rented it to our dear friend, Henry (50) & Diane who lived in it for over 20 years. Henry was Hawaiin and used to be Don Ho's bodyguard. Remember, "Tiny Bubbles" Many luaus and pigs cooked in the back yard Hawaiin style.

Before we rented our home to our friends we stored many things in the shed (time capsule) in the backyard. Not really remembering what was packed in the shed or expecting anything to be any good after over twenty years, we were pleasantly surprised. A step back in time. Memories!!! We have so many, many happy memories in this home and count our blessings for them.

After our friends moved to North Carolina last year, we thought we would work on the house and prepare it to sell. Being back in Monterey and sitting on the couch looking out over the bay, my husband said, "I don't think we should sell this house"
the view is so beautiful in the day and even more spectacular at night, It just draws you in, a calming pleasure. We had forgotten. While restoring the house I learned about Airbnb and the rest is history, and more new memories.

Dave and I love Jazz and we have been sitting in the same seats (with an original group of 60 friends) for over 35 years at the Monterey Jazz Festival. We also love to travel, golf and enjoy our houseboat at the Havasu Springs Resort,

We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
