Absolutely no parties or events of any kind, no exceptions.
“Well appointed home with an amazing kitchen, spacious bedrooms and living space. The outside deck and views are stunningly beautiful. The host is very responsive to any questions or concerns. Very close to hiking trails and scenic road trips. We loved everything about our stay!”
It is true that "The Retreat" was once a shed (never used as one)! It has a "Queen bed", a bathroom/ shower, microwave and refrigerator! Snacks, waters, coffee and / or tea are available! Featuring 90% green electric energy (solar panels)!! Monterey is only 25 minutes away.
“We had a truly great stay at “the retreat”. The cottage provided for a very cozy and comfortable stay and it is located in a BEAUTIFUL backyard with fruit trees and seating areas. Ted and Edith are friendly, accommodating and responsive hosts and they do the little extra for their guests to have a nice time during their stay. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay in the retreat when visiting the Monterey Bay Area!”

“Diana is a kind host and her cottage is a very special place. I felt relaxed, comfortable, and enjoyed my 5 day trip. Salinas is an adorable old-town, not far from Monterey/Carmel. I had a delicious lunch at John Steinbeck's boyhood home, which is a 10 minute drive from the cottage. I also took a couple lovely day trips to Carmel and Pebble Beach. Highly recommend Diana's place and I hope to come back very soon :)”
