The space

Private room with private bathroom and queen-size bed. We can put up a single pop-up bed for one or two additional guests (you need to book for three guests to have 2 beds or four guests to have 3 beds).
There are other rooms available in the house, click on my profile to see more.

Guest access

Please park your car directly in front of the house on the main street and enter the house through the FRONT door (not the side door by the garage). You will need to come through the garden gate and up the front stairs.

We ask guests to remove their shoes in our house - there is a shoe closet near the front door.

This is a room-only rental. You are welcome to enjoy the view from our front living room, but the back room and kitchen are reserved for our family. There is a small shared refrigerator in the front living room as well as hot water, tea and coffee.

Interaction with guests

Our interaction with guests depends on a number of factors. Many prefer to keep to themselves, and that's absolutely fine. Occasionally we will share a meal with a guest or sit down for a coffee or tea. If you have kids, they might like to play with ours. It really depends on circumstances, mutual interest and time.

Please feel free to approach us if you have any questions or would like recommendations on local attractions, restaurants and shops.

Other things to note

• We have two very young children who, on occasion, make loud noises—of both the joyful, and not-so-joyful variety. If you want to sleep in past 7 or 8am and you're bothered by noise, it's probably not the best place for you.
• We are just down the street from the fire station—which means that we're all set if we have an emergency—but we also have the pleasure of knowing every time anyone else does.
• We are on a quiet main street next to a school. The street doesn't have much traffic, but the sound carries when someone drives by fast or playing thumping music. We do not get much noise from the school at all. During school drop-off and pick-up times, it can be hard to find parking - otherwise there is plenty of room on the street in front of the house.

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING (this is more like terms & conditions)
If anything is unclear or you have questions, please ask BEFORE booking!

Note: The room has one queen-size bed and two optional fold-out single beds (see below).
Babies (under 2) are free if they sleep with their parents, otherwise you need to book for the appropriate number of people. There are no more than 4 people allowed in this room. If your group is bigger than that, please inquire about our other rooms.

Tell us if you need the following:
A crib-size mattress on the floor.
One or two extra beds (Our default is 2 guests = 1 bed, 3 guests = 2 beds, 4 guests = 3 beds. If you want to use an extra bed, you need to book for an extra guest).

- Please respect our check-in (5pm) and check-out (10am) times. Sometimes we can be flexible, but other times we have a tight schedule - so ask.

- Be prepared to read and follow instructions for self-check-in, where to park, and which door to enter. We are not always home.

- If you have any problems climbing up stairs, arrange with me ahead of time and we can let you use our private entrance on the side of the house (it is wheelchair accessible)

- There is a hot water dispenser and coffee maker with tea and coffee under the bathroom sink in your room. There is also a small fridge in the front living room and more coffee and tea for all our guests. The back room and kitchen are reserved for our family. It is fine to poke your head in to say hello, but excuse our mess - this is not part of the rental. We live here, and while we are happy to share our home with others, it is important to us that we have a normal family life.

- Please be respectful of the wooden floors (shoes off, no dragging/scraping luggage), and the wooden furniture (use coasters, don’t drape your damp towels or wet things). We provide hooks in your room where you can hang your towels instead of placing them on the bed or the furniture.

- Quiet hours are from 9pm-7am. If you come in late, please do so quietly. Our walls are thin and we have other guests, try to keep your voices down after 9pm.

- No heavy drinking or drunkenness, drugs, or smoking on the premises. No parties. No pets. NO ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS!

Please give us feedback about how we can improve your stay.

If you have read these rules, send me a message saying "Gray Whale"

We had a great time at Noelle's place! We stayed in the beach room and it was decorated very nicely. Everything was clean and the sheets were the softest! (would love to know where to buy those :) ) We asked for aquarium tickets which made the price extremely worth it! Very close to Monterey and to highway 1. Highly recommended!

It's a little bit like a hostel with several guests. Nice room with a comfortable bed.

Wir haben ganz spontan während des Trips auf dem Highway 1 die Unterkunft von Noelle gebucht. Sie hat direkt geantwortet und war sehr flexibel. Das war wirklich super. Da wir auf der Durchreise und somit nur ein Nacht dort waren kann ich nur was zum Zimmer sagen. Es war liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber. Leider ist es teilweise etwas hellhörig.

Perfect location staying in Seaside. Close to all the towns in Monterey Bay. Noelle and John were perfect hosts. Our room was clean and comfortable. They opened up their home to us. We loved sitting on their front porch watching the sunset over the Pacific. They provided anything we needed. Thank you for your hospitality!

Nice old style. John and Noelle are very nice and always available for every question by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). We had the room with bathroom en-suite and they give you towels and all the products you need. You can use the fridge in the living room and they provide also coffee and water. Good if you want to save money and visit Monterey and Carmel by the sea... by car of course. We recommend absolutely this place.
