You must book this house a minimum of two nights, %30-%40 discounts for week/monthly bookings. Best to reserve two to three months in advance - as I rent the rooms out individually as well.

My little 3 bedroom beach cottage is old outside, but new inside, with a remodeled kitchen, laundry and bathroom...100% bamboo (or cotton) sheets on NASA foam Queen Mattresses, so 6 can sleep here comfortably. With 3 Bedrooms - One bath makes respectful scheduling a necessity ...Make sure others are aware your about to take a long bath so they can pop in to brush teeth or use the loo before heading out. Stay for the weekend/week/month and explore Santa Cruz to Big Sur:
The Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, whale watching, wine tasting in Carmel Valley, fishing, cycling or a stroll along one of the many beaches. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea lions, otters and various ocean birds of Monterey Wharf. Laguna Seca Race Track is just down the road, Monterey Fairgrounds (Jazz festival, Blues Festival!) and of course, if golf is your pleasure, Monterey Bay Golf Course is ten minutes away, Black Horse and Bayonet Golf Ranges are 7 minutes from my house, and of course, The Pebble Beach Golf course is at least a must see.
Bus transport around the corner - Monterey Fairgrounds is 18 - 25 min away.

You may bring a small dog - I have a doggy door and a fenced in back yard so they can have a life while you trip around - and you can always take them to the CARMEL (by the Sea) DOG BEACH where dogs run free and all the owners are walking the shoreline.

Single, 64, young at heart, deep thinker, graphic designer/illustrator/web dev who works with artists on their branding and PR. My two children come and go between jobs and semesters...I adopted Trixie (a 12 lb Toto 'look alike' terrier) to keep me company and protect me from the postman (apparently.) She's aging (14) will bark at your arrival, sniff your feet and then get over it, maybe she will even let you pet her by the end of your stay. Don't pet unless she comes to you.
My 950 square foot house has two guest rooms, kiitchen/laundry and LR privileges. Queen beds and a newly renovated shared bathroom. If you want to rent out the whole house, (3 br) I would need several weeks/months in advance notice, as the single rooms book quite early...
I can't live without artichokes and garlic and a view of the Pacific ocean (why I am still here) art, good friends and good food, music of most kinds, movies, gardening and my favorite destinations have been so far, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Guatemala, Antigua, Canada...However, Big Sur does it for me on a regular basis - simply amazing!
