Beautiful house, gorgeous bathrooms, very comfortable for 4 adults. (But 5 would have been a stretch.) Neighborhood is peaceful and quiet--you can hear the wind through the trees as your only sound. Deer hang out in the neighborhood. I'd love to move into this house and call it a day! Raisa is also very accommodating and helpful... overall a wonderful experience.
I provided 4 stars instead of 5 because of 2 snags. It's expensive--so you expect things to work. The air conditioner/heater combos were very frustrating to use, even with my husband and my father both trying to decode them. My husband has 2 masters degrees in computer science and my dad is an engineer also. We ended up sleeping both nights with one unit or the other refusing to operate, and either sweating or shivering through the night. Hopefully host will provide clear instructions for these units for future guests, as this was very frustrating.
For those who care about such things, the television does not have a very good selection of channels and there is no way to play movies of your own. For this kind of money, I would have expected this. All that said, very peaceful and quiet home and I'd return.
In a lovely, quiet location in the Del Monte Forest, Raisa’s cute little house was a fantastic retreat for us after the day racing at Laguna Seca. Judging by the recently completed bathrooms, it will only get better as she continues to renovate. Responsive and friendly, she (email hidden), and we’re looking forward to our next visit.
We spent a week at Raisa's house and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. My husband and I met our daughter, son-in-law and 10 month old grandaughter for a fun getaway and it exceeded all expectations. Raisa's home is lovely. The beds and bedrooms are very comfortable with lots of closet space, hangers and linens. The bathrooms are exceptional-- heated floors, wonderful showers plus a tub and plenty of towels.The bathrooms have just been completely redone. The washer and dryer are large and roomy-- located in the garage. There is a well stocked kitchen, eating area and living room. It was perfect for four adults plus a baby. The space is very child friendly. The outdoor patios are also a plus. The house is clean and has plenty of kitchen utensils, dishes and staples. But, the best thing about it all is the location!!!! We were steps from 17 mile drive and the Inn at Spanish Bay. We walked to the beach easily-- even with a stroller. We took numerous day trips to Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. We also loved Pacific Grove. But, when we came home, we were in a very private and quiet residential neighborhood. I highly recommend this house and Raisa. She couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. We will definitely go back one day if the house is available. Raisa even provided soap, shampoo and enough essentials that we didn't need to rush immediately to stock up on groceries and personal necessities. It was a vacation in the truest sense. I couldn't feel more positive about the entire experience. The hardest part was having to say goodbye to a memorable week.
The location was perfect. House was very comfortable and enough room for all 4 guests. We loved it and hope to be back.
Lovely, clean, nicely decorated and furnished home, ideally situated in Pebble Beach. We were there for a wedding and everything worked very well for our needs.
I booked Raisa's cottage for my family for a quick getaway and it was great. Raisa is very responsive and very kind. The cottage is remodeled and clean. It's a great location to the water and lies inside the 17 mile drive. The house is a little dark because it's amongst trees and in a shaded area, but other than that it was a nice home.
This was out second time staying at Raisa's beautiful Pebble Beach property. It made our Mother's Day weekend and celebration extraordinary. The forest and the beaches were gorgeous and the convenience and location of the home made the whole experience multiple times better! Raisa is a wonderful and attentive host.
We are definitely looking forward to our next visit!
Casa Majella is BEAUTIFUL! Pebble Beach was gorgeous and a short walk away! The neighborhood was out of this world! How wonderful that through Airbnb we can ALL have a place in Pebble Beach! Raisa was very kind and everything was as she said it was! The house was very modern, clean and comfortable inside. And the backyard was brilliant! I saw deer every day back there! How peaceful and lovely! We really enjoyed our stay!!!! THANK YOU!
We stayed at Casa Majella two nights. (email hidden)! Gated community. All the comforts of home. The newly renovated bathrooms are really nice. the location of Casa Majella makes it a breeze to get to Cannery Row, and you can walk to the beach! Oh, and the deer that wander thru the backyard are an added bonus! Very cool!! Thanks Raisa. You made our stay in Monterey that much more memorable.
We really enjoyed this place! I'm not sure the pictures do it justice, quite frankly. For 4 of us, we had plenty of room, and in addition, we even had a couple of day visitors. Very homey feel, and beautiful to sit outside and enjoy the courtyard or the serene woods in the backyard. Raisa was super responsive and helpful if we had any questions during our stay. The place was very clean when we got there, and the bathrooms are really amazing - remodeled and huge. It was a great location for 1) the Big Sur marathon (this is very close to the end of the race), as well as 2) RIGHT off 17 mile drive. Thanks for a perfect accommodation for our visit.
Very nice couple. Glad we had the opportunity to meet. They left the apartment clean. Hope they will return again.
