Free Aquarium passes for our guests!
Our three sunny 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 will 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 micro-climates 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.
At Monterey Guesthouses we take great pride in our hospitality — we want you to truly feel like a guest! At a standard luxury hotel you have drinks and snacks available . . . but there’s a price tag on each. Our snacks are provided free, and guests usually leave a bottle of wine to replace the ones they drink during their stay, as you would when you visit someone’s home. WIFI access is absolutely free. We really want your stay in the Monterey Bay area to be the best one yet.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about our guesthouse vacation rentals.
Hope to see you soon!
