What You will absolutely cherish about this beautiful yellow house and what makes it so unique is the vast open space surrounding it offering complete privacy. You'll love that it's only a 10 minute walk to Downtown Monterey, shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, Festivals, and more. It's located right on Sky Line Forest and since it's a corner lot and there are no houses built behind it, it feels like you're in Carmel Valley or Big Sur. Absolute tranquility and peace, perfect for a relaxation or meditation retreat or get away. Also the house is located uphill and in the sun belt and with no large trees in the yard to block the sun, you'd get a rare opportunity to enjoy the sun in this beautiful foggy town :) literally the best house on the block bursting with a warm and positive radiant energy.
Private master bedroom with a brand new Queen sized bed, shared bathroom, balcony. Mini fridge and conventional oven with some dishes and utensils in the kitchen. No kitchen access for cooking food! Only light kitchen use, such as to boil some water for tea or coffee or toast some bread to grab a bowl for cereal or yogurt or to make some fresh orange juice.
Interaction with guests
As needed :) I enjoy spending time with my guests, yet respect their privacy and enjoy my privacy as well in this peaceful house!
This is one of the safest neighborhoods in Monterey and offers an old world charm. It's quiet and serene and it seems like time stands still here :) no street noise, private and sunny :) you'll hear wonderful sounds of crickets at night and beautiful sounds of the ocean and sea lions at dawn.
You can easily get around here by walking 10 minutes down hill or riding a bike, or driving for 3 minutes :) Monterey shuttles and bussed are also located conveniently downtown and the shuttles will actually drop you off at the house or pick you up for a small added fee.
