This gem of a house is nestled in the suburbs of Monterey. A grocery store and several other smaller stores are a short drive or easy walk.
The house was a perfect layout for our family of four. And every inch of this house, inside and out, is inviting, charming and clean. We were welcomed with a bottle of red wine, cheese and crackers; perfect for our famished family. We choose to be out and about during the day to tour Monterey and near by towns. At night we settled in back at "home" and took advantage of the DVD's and board games offer to us.
We found this house to have EVERYTHING we needed. I don't believe I've been in a more equipped kitchen for a rental home, such a pleasure.
In closing I'd like to add a shout out to Brandon who (with help of the fabulous cleaning crew) was able to help us find a pair of lost AirPods. Thanks everyone!
Our family had a wonderful time in this house. We loved the kitchen and family room open concept; it was especially wonderful to celebrate Thanksgiving there. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. The upkeep was impeccable!
I've had many vacation rentals and this house was among the best appointed properties I've ever seen. It was completely turn-key. The house is open and airy with a pretty little back patio. The gas fireplace made the open floor plan very cozy. Beds were comfortable, linens and towels fresh and plentiful. There is cable and internet. The most amazing thing was the kitchen -- it was equipped with EVERYTHING you could ever want for dining in, right down to an immersion blender.
As far as location goes, Monterey is about 10-15 mins away and Carmel is about another 10 mins further down the road, so the house is well-located.
The management company was top-shelf and great to work with. They sent me all the info I needed well in advance, and gave me info on local grocery store (5 mins away, also Walgren's). We were there over Christmas and they went above and beyond to add holiday touches to the house to make it very festive and welcoming for us.
Two things to be aware of: 1) the house has beautiful wood floors and the living room is sunken. So if you have a small child (we had a 1 yr old toddler with us) you need to be on your toes so he/she doesn't slip & fall down those steps to the living room. 2) The mechanicals for the house are in a closet in the study, which has a fold-out bed for extra capacity. It would be hard to sleep in there if you are a light sleeper.
Net-net it is a terrific property nicely located.
