Hello Friend!
You've landed in the right spot if you are looking for an affordable and inspiring Creative Retreat location – whether you want to write your next book or develop your next project, spend off-grid time with family, or, well, just get away and relax.

We hope to welcome you to the breathtaking Monterey Peninsula on California's Central Coast!

Why book here directly with us instead of on Airbnb?

Well, first off, if you got to this page, you likely have met us. Or we are already friends. Or, at least, we hang out in some of the same places online. And we do intend to get our rooms up on Airbnb. But we're not quite there yet. You see, we just sent our last child off to college. We're trying to get our bearings. And we are still figuring out some of the short-term rental logistics specific to our area.

Meanwhile, now that we're "empty nesters," we wanted to get on with it. You might say we're "dipping our toes" into the business. Plus, we enjoy getting to know people and love introducing them to our corner of the world.

We also include the following amenities:

  • Wifi (duh!);
  • Breakfast items (it is a bed and breakfast, and we've already taken care of the bed);
  • A quiet household (without TV, btw);
  • Pick up at local airport if needed and possible;
  • Two guest passes to the world-renown Monterey Bay Aquarium (for adults, that's a $50/pp savings);
  • Experience of locals + fun company. And did we mention dark chocolate?

STEP #1: Take a look at the photo gallery of our place below.

Our home is modest in size, but we are so grateful for it! The entire property except our personal quarters are available to you. We live here; this is an owner-occupied rental. But occasionally we go places. If we're gone, we'll make arrangements beforehand with you.

STEP #2: Read up on us.

Go to the HOME and ABOUT pages of this site. You can read all 160+ blog posts on this site, or 70+ (to date) of Caroline's articles on Heck, you can even stalk us on social, if you want (but be nice, please).

STEP #3: Fill out the inquiry form below.

We will be back with you within 48 hours. Sorry, we're human and do sleep! :-)

STEP #4: We'll continue the conversation through email and text.

If you agree with the plan, house rules, terms & conditions, you can pay direct through Caroline's account. Date changes can happen if the dates you want are available with no charge. All payments are refundable (less 10%) up to five days in advance.  If you cancel within that five-day period, we'll return 50% to you.
