Our stay at Ray and Michelle's was great! I needed to help my mom escape from the smokey mountains where she lives for a few days and it was great to get her to the coast and staying in the cute second floor bungalow where we could sleep with the deck doors and windows open to the fresh ocean air was fabulous! We loved the layout of the place with the big windows and the two decks which made for a really nice indoor/outdoor living space. It was also very nice that I could bring my dog Soda along to this pet friendly abode. Ray and Michelle were awesome hosts, very friendly and accommodating, and we appreciated the little touches like the bottle of wine and nasturtium flowers left for us on arrival.
The location was great - just a couple blocks from eateries and grocery stores, and a couple minute drive from the freeway. Only takes a couple minutes to get into Monterey proper, and only 10-15 to get to Carmel. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the balcony, and loved the kitchen. Everything was fantastic!
As you walk into this apartment the first thing you notice is how bright and airy it is. The large glass sliding doors lead to one of two decks. The apartment is very spacious as well as centrally located. Easy to drive to all the sites. Our host couldn't have been warmer. We enjoyed the bottle of wine from our hosts after our long flight. Our hosts, Ray, Michelle and Virginia couldn't have been more helpful. They live in the main house, easy to communicate with but very discreet if you prefer your privacy. I would definitely stay again.
My husband & I stayed for a get-away weekend. We had great communication with Ray before and during the trip. The listing feels brand new with appliances in kitchen & bathroom. Extremely clean & comfortable for the 2 of us. Slept great. While it's not walking distance, it is very short drive to all the major activities like Laguna Seca, Aquarium. Thanks Ray for a nice stay.
