About this property

Country Paradise -- 5 Minutes From Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Adults-only vacation home in Salinas
Our property Guesthouse Suite is nestled amid lawns and gardens: EAST OF EDEN SUITE is a large guesthouse with a luxury master bedroom and private half bath, large sunroom living area, full kitchen, and full bath (sleeps 8-10). EAST OF EDEN GUESTHOUSE SUITE (Suite can sleep up to 6) Our East of Eden Guesthouse has a spectacular sunroom with views of surrounding hills. There's plenty of comfortable seating and a full-size dining table—you'll feel as if your dining in a lovely garden. The sofas in the sunroom are deep and comfortable — a relaxing place sip a glass of wine at the end of a busy day, curl up with a book, or take a nap. Outside is a large fountain and garden areas—peaceful and relaxing with the sound of water and birdsong. The large private patio area adds additional living space with outdoor furniture and gas barbecue. EAST OF EDEN has a luxury master bedroom with a king-size bed, sitting area with 2 sofas and a large TV, private half bath, and electric fireplace. The bed faces a beautiful view of the garden and surrounding hills. For additional sleeping in the master bedroom there is a queen convertible bed. In addition to the master bedroom, the house has a full bath and a sunny full kitchen with breakfast nook. The large sunroom (which can be closed off via a sliding glass door from the kitchen) can be used for an additional sleeping area with a convertible king-size bed and a full size sofa futon. Please note that during the winter months, the sunroom is usually very comfortable during the daytime but cools off at night and cannot be heated (just too much glass and high ceiling). LOCATION We are in John Steinbeck's celebrated Pastures of Heaven area (between Monterey and Salinas) is within Monterey Peninsula's prized sunbelt area. It may be foggy in Monterey, Carmel or Pebble Beach, but just 20 minutes away at your garden guesthouse, you'll often have sunny days. The property is 4 fully fenced acres, with expansive lawn areas, koi pond, and gardens just outside your door— a perfect place to barbecue . . . or just relax with a book and sunbathe when weather permits. You have the feel of being in the country but all the convenience of being close to all the wonders of the Monterey Peninsula: celebrated golf courses, shopping, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Big Sur Coast, and music events, such as the Monterey Jazz Festival. And if you're a racing fan, this property is ideal! We're just 5 minutes from the Laguna Seca Raceway! EXTRAS There's a private parking area with room for larger vehicles, such as an RV or a boat. If you need secure storage for bicycles or other large items, a locked, covered carport can be provided. We are pet friendly on 4 fully fenced acres. We provide our guests with free Monterey Aquarium passes (2) and croquet set, which can be set up on the large lawn area. We provide luxury Egyptian cotton linens, and we wash and steam/sterilize all bed linens and bath towels before the arrival of new guests. GENERAL HOUSEKEEPING There is a $75 cleaning fee per suite for your stay. The grounds make for a wonderful place to romp, please supervise children and pets.

So perfect for families with dogs

Couldn’t have a better layout or accommodations for my grown kids with three dogs, including one in a wheelchair and one retired K9! Sitting on the patio with cocktails with a big lawn to throw the ball was game changing for our trip! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!! THANKS ELIZABETH!!

5/5 Excellent

Great spot for our family!

We were welcomed by our host and her dog, and knew right away that the place was a good fit for our family. Between my brother's family and the rest of us, there were 9 of us for one night, and then 7 for the rest of the stay. We had both sides of the rental: East of Eden, and Cannery Row. The Cannery Row side offered a complete apartment separate from the other half of the building, making for a nice and quiet escape. The kitchen in East of Eden worked for us, including making a full breakfast for the whole group. The grill was nice and new, and the whole yard was quite pleasant. With a short 15-25 minute drive to shopping, the beach and of course Cannery Row, the location was good. We would stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Family Get-A-Way!!

5/5 Excellent

Enjoyable layout for 2 couples ( or more)

We arrived just prior to designated arrival time and were promptly greeted by property owner. She escorted us through both suites and provided insight into use of septic system and lighting, fan and other controls. King size bed in East of Eden suite was comfortable as well as sofas, dining table/chairs and other amenities. Shower was hot and put out plenty of water. Suite was well-equipped with toiletries, towels and other owner- provided items. An enjoyable stay in all.
