Our two sunny vacation rental guesthouses are located in the Corral de Tierra area, just off the Monterey-Salinas Highway. This location offers easy access to Monterey, Carmel, and Salinas (approximately 20 minutes’ drive). We’re only 10 minutes from the Monterey Airport; and race fans willl especially appreciate that we are only 5 minutes from the main gate of the Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. Locals know that the Monterey Bay area is not only famous for its natural beauty and popular events, its quirky microclimates are legendary. Properties in the Monterey Bay’s sunbelt, like Corral de Tierra and Carmel Valley, are considered premium locations. Often, summer days can be cold and foggy in Pebble Beach or Carmel, and just a few minutes drive inland finds a warm, sunny day. A gloomy day in Salinas can turn into a pocket of sunshine at Monterey Guesthouses. The Corral de Tierra area, also known as John Steinbeck’s Pastures of Heaven, is a sunny jewel. I’ve lived on the Peninsula for 40 years — in Carmel Valley, Pebble Beach, Monterey, Pacific Grove — and this is the area I chose for my dream home and retirement.
