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 a busy day seeing the sights. Although the house is close to the airport, we were not disturbed by aircraft noise.
Helaine was a wonderful host and promptly dealt with any issues (all minor) that arose. We will be back.
