Pooches welcome with prior approval and $29. pet fee per dog, per visit. (not per night) If you like peace and privacy, this is the place for you. Come and go as you please at any hour of the day or night without the fear of disturbing us, as you have your own entrance and do not go through the main house at all. Enjoy this fabulous super sunny master bedroom studio, with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on huge fenced tiled patio with fruit trees and gardens. I am most welcoming, yet unobtrusive, so that you will find this to be a comfortable oasis. Of course, I am reachable for any questions, advice, requests or needs. Enter through a side gate, through the heirloom roses, which are highly scented when in bloom. The studio is completely separate from the main house, (although attached by one common wall.) Entrance is separate as is the space - the only potentially shared area is the back patio. Super-private and very quiet, except for the birds, yet centrally located; 5 minutes to downtown Monterey, Laguna Seca Raceway or CSUMB and 10 minutes to Monterey Bay Aquarium or Carmel. A 24-hour Safeway and Walgreen's just 2 minutes away, in case you have any midnight cravings! Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are 10 minutes away. Located in a wonderful little sun belt, perched high upon a hilltop with a nice view of Monterey Bay in a very quiet residential neighborhood, so typically we are above any fog – especially during the summer season when the rest of the Monterey Peninsula could be socked-in! We are at the top of a street which ends in a culdesac so there is not a lot of through traffic and super-easy street parking right in front of the house. Painted in a soothing palette and tastefully furnished, the studio is comprised of large sunny master bedroom with hardwood floors, your own private updated Travertine marble bathroom (shower - no tub) supplied with towels, hairdryer and high-quality toiletries. A view of patio, creates a sunny and bright ambiance. A closet with excellent storage, dimmer switch for the overhead chandelier, writing table and small flatscreen TV with remote control plus wi-fi. Detailed FAQ binder has been very helpful to our guests! Sleep peacefully in the Queen-sized bed with 100% cotton linens (line dried when possible) and cozy blankets, then enjoy breakfast outside on the patio when weather permits. Our guests have raved about the bed! For an extra guest, there is a air mattress bed. The kitchenette/breakfast bar has a new microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker (BYO coffee - the filters provided.) The under-the-counter fridge has a separate freezer compartment with ice trays big enough for some frozen foods or ice cream. (Note: this is not a full kitchen, so please don't plan any major cooking in the room!) We uttilize compostable plates, cups and flatware. Of course, the wine glasses are glass! Access is through the large fenced-in beautiful, sunny patio in the backyard, filled with organic raised bed vegetable gardens which change seasonally, fruit trees and roses. This is a great location, centrally located between Highway One and Highway 68, near the rec trail, Frog Pond, beaches and terrific hills for a morning or evening stroll. No smoking inside – okay on patio. Dogs allowed with extra charge of $29. per pet per stay (not per night.) A sophisticated foodie and twenty-five year resident of the Monterey Peninsula, I am a great resource of information if needed. Also, the studio is also equipped with lots of books on the area and a binder with menus from my favorite restaurants, brochures and information on local attractions. There is a fully equipped gym 2 minutes away for those who want to get their workout in. All visits come with a free pass to one of our local wine tasting rooms! Organic vegetable gardening classes are available as well as private custom designed tours of the Monterey Peninsula, depending upon your interests. If you need restaurant recommendations prior to arrival, I am happy to assist. If your party is larger than two (i.e. a 3rd person, or a child) please contact us in advance to discuss arrangements, we can arrange for a crib (extra fee) and extra linens in the closet prior to your arrival. You may also want to check out our other listing for more room. I live in the main house part-time with two kitties. If you suffer from pet allergies you should know that the cats do roam the yard from time to time but are never permitted in the studio. Though we do clean the studio thoroughly between guests, you should be aware that we are a pet-friendly property. I use scent-free laundry detergent on all of the towels and linens and line-dry the sheets whenaever possible. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Reg. #: DROSTR-009More

We spent a week using the rental as a base for touring the Monterey peninsula. The room was well appointed and clean, and the house was quiet. One of the highlights was the adjacent garden patio, which was a great place to sip wine after...More
