Great place

If you value cleanliness even just a little bit, DO NOT book this home. We have stayed in airbnb homes with dogs and cats before, as well as several others that do not. This was by far **the** worst. Positives: The hosts are nice. Pets are adorable. Bed is comfortable. Aquarium passes are nice (many other airbnb places offer this). Negatives: I wish reviews would allow me to post photos. The place felt like we had dropped in for a surprise visit to someone who is an extremely bad housekeeper, instead of a place where you would pay for, and pay a hefty cleaning fee in addition!!! The general feeling (and evidenced in and around the house) we got was the house hasn't been cleaned (thoroughly or otherwise) in a LONG LONG time and the tidying/organizing has been entirely neglected as well. Life is busy, I get it. We ourselves are not super clean freaks, with 3 small children running underfoot. But there are certain minimal housekeeping that simply needs to be done regardless, like BASIC cleanliness and tidiness! Especially if you're making people PAY. What you see on the photos/listings is NOT what you'll get. Furniture have been moved around in the house. One of the beds is in a shared space (in the living room). There are now also MUCH MUCH more personal clutter on every possible surface, and not in a tidy way. It’s all simply carelessly scattered all over the kitchen counter, kitchen table, side tables, chairs, vacuum cleaner against the living room wall, memory foam mattress cardboard box in the front yard, yard waste dried up and left unattended, torn patio screen door, shoes strewn in the yard, gardening tools left on the patio furniture from who knows when. The host had swimsuits hung on the downstairs bathroom doorknob, dirty dishes in the sink, half eaten popcorn container on the kitchen counter. I could go on... There was dust on the window sills and baseboards, live spiders in the bedroom and bathrooms... We also found a couple of flies, a silverfish, and a few moths in the bedroom. A spider crawling ON my pillow as I was about to get in bed to sleep on the second night. All live animals and bugs... We tried to kill them as we see them... but after a few, it started to wear on our psyche. There were blue crystals from the cat litter box scattered throughout the entire kitchen and livingroom floor (it was **partially** swept off after I brought that to the host's attention…) The overall uncleanliness of the home and cat litter posed a definite health hazard for our 15 month old crawler. We did not let him down onto the downstairs floor at all. With our busy travel itinerary and 3 children, we didn't have much time to look for another place at 9pm when we arrived. We made do and only showered/slept there. Needless to say, we would not stay here ever again.
Jen, you booked this less than 24 hours before arrival time. I apologize publicly for not picking up after my husband, who had just purchased a $400 memory foam topper for the bed you slept in...which, by the way was not photographed in our listing because it is a recent upgrade. Rather than the futon you thought you were getting, you got a brand new bed with a topper! I also publicly apologize for not picking up after the gardiner who had also been there the day you made the (URL HIDDEN) bad...i had a very bad car accident a week before and i was very injured. I did, however, with a lot of pain spend the entire day cleaning and a gut feeling told me to take photos of my hard work...which i have sent to airbnb. I scrubbed all the floors personally on my hands and knees with great physical pain so i take great exception to your judgments about the cleanliness of my home. Honestly, i was in so much pain from cleaning frantically to get it ready, i just couldnt put the memory foam box in the recycle bin. I also chose to ignore the tools on the table outside. My husband commutes 3 and a half hours to work everyday. He was exhausted...his bad. I am an artist. My paints, canvases, etc. Are the biggest clutter in my home. I swim everyday and my back hurts a lot when i walk upstairs. I keep a suit hanging on my and i will emphasize MY bathroom door downstairs so i dont have to walk upstairs if i forget it. The truth is this jen. You couldnt find anything else on the monterey peninsula for less than $400 a night. We called motel 6 and that was their price. You purchased ONE room with a shared bath for 3 nights at $396 with a special offer from us discounting the $662 airbnb price for one room with 5 people. We do not offer kitchen or laundry privileges, but we made an exception because we had compassion for a family who clearly could not afford to come to our area. We made up the futon in our livingroom for your kids, even though it is not an area we allow guests in because of my art clutter. I told your husband you could use our oatmeal and bananas. Our kitchen was clean enough for you to use a half dozen eggs, butter, etc to cook your breakfast. You definitely used the bananas and decided to take every piece of fruit in our fruit bowl as well as our expensive avocados! Yes, you asked about a few kitty crystals that had spilled on the floor. I swept them up. I swept and mopped those floors on my hands and knees to the point you could eat off them! They were perfectly fine for your baby to crawl on. Had you called a spider to my attention, we would have taken care of it...alas, you never did...therefore, i dont believe you. Matter of fact you never mentioned any of these complaints until the day after you left. I have apologized for what we did wrong, but i want to emphasize how little you paid us, and how much you were given...lesson for you is DONT LOOK A GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH. You judged us for giving you more of our home than we should have. I know that when people read our other reviews, they will realize we are compassionate human beings...for gods sake! I did your laundry even though we dont offer laundry usage!! How petty can you get! Here was the previous guests response. They were here 3 days before you... a great find! Val was a lovely hostess. She gave us lots of tips around the area and more. Going to the aquarium was fantastic. Adorable pets, a warm environment, and a clean house, what more could we ask for? great find!

Easy clean no hassles available for last minute booking

The place was simple, clean, and quaint. Ken was an excellent host who clearly was there as needed, and has good, knowledgable recommendations of the area. They have two rooms they host and they have an adjoining wall, which my girlfriend and I found didn't work for us and the late night romantic activities we wanted from our private room. The free pass to the aquarium was super appreciated, and Ken was very accommodating with our morning schedule to make sure we got there. That's normally $40 a person, so a great financial incentive to staying here. I didn't meet Val, but she was great in the correspondence, and I imagine she's wonderful in person.
We don't always rent the adjoining room. That usually only happens on holiday weekends, or in august . This is a brand new home and has great insulation, but if someone is needing to escalate sounds and behavior, this would not be a good fit for either side. We enjoy getting to know all kinds of people, but we really do respect privacy as well. We think it would benefit you greatly matthew to rent a cottage next time where all four walls are your own. We wish you well in all your travels! Valerie and ken

Great experience. Val is awesome, she was very friendly and had good advice. The room is very nice and clean and bed is comfortable. Able to put my car in driveway which I liked. Very convenient to Monterey. I would stay there again and recommend it to others.
We lived having you as well! Let's keep in touch! You never know when we might be in Santa barbara!!!

The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

Val is a wonderful welcoming host. I was traveling on my own so I was really appreciative of the way that she looked after me and welcomed me into her home. From the moment of booking, she provided me with tips. Having lived in the area for 30 years, she is a fountain of knowledge (including where to park for free like the locals in Monterey!) The room I stayed in didn't look like the photos on Airbnb but it didn't matter as the bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was clean and well equipped and there wasn't a problem sharing it with the other guests. The washer and dryer were really handy. Castroville itself isn't all that special a neighborhood for a guest but it's location means easy access to what the area has to offer. I recommend using the guest pass to go to the Aquarium and kayaking on the Elkhorn Slough was a great experience (don't forget whale watching!)
Sally we loved having you! It was great to give you a tour of Monterey, carmel, carmel valley and pg! I loved seeing a movie with you as well! It was lovely having you in our home! We hope your flight back to London wasn't too bad! Please think of us if you are in Nor cal again!

The pictures I have posted were taken by an airbnb official photographer and are exactly what our property looks like. Our property is completely authenticated by Airbnb. We have been doing business with airbnb for 10 years. Two bad reviews out of 70...both given by women who were given great deals and demanded more than they husband and I love people and we love to accommodate nice people who appreciate what we have. I speak Spanish and French. He speaks Danish. We have traveled the world with airbnb and we love the concept. We sometimes invite our guests to bbq or have breakfAst with us. Our frenchies are clean and loving and will give kisses on demand. We look forward to meeting YOU!!!
