We ended our California vacation with a stay at The Guest House after visiting San Fransisco, Napa, and Yosemite. After a roughing it in Yosemite, we were looking forward to a nice, clean shower, and an early check in was accommodated, which was much appreciated. Upon arrival, we were delighted to find a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers.
The house was impeccably clean and well stocked. Every kitchen gadget and utensil that you could imagine was provided. We were pleasantly surprised to find all of the comforts of home, including shampoo and body wash. We found all items in house to be clearly labeled, which was very helpful. The furnishings and decor of the home are straight out of a magazine. One thing that we loved about the home is that it comfortably accommodated our family of five. We have no need to stay in a large home, but a hotel room does not easily accommodate a family of five. Our three kids have repeatedly mentioned that our stay here was the highlight of the whole 10 day vacation.
The location of the home is unmatched. We rented bikes for our whole stay and rode the bikes to the beach and Cannery Row. There are numerous shops and restaurants to enjoy. With the Monterey Coastal Trail across the street from the home, a picturesque adventure awaits!
Our only complaint is that our stay was too short (we didn't want to leave) and we live across the country. That being said, another cross-country trip would be worth it to stay here again!
