Country Paradise -- 5 Minutes from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Vacation home in Salinas with kitchen and patio
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).

(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).

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!

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.

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.

Quiet Stay in the hills
We had a wonderful experience at this property. Beautiful, secluded home right in the hills yet a short 15 minute drive to Salinas, Monterey, etc. stayed in the guest houses of the property owner who was right next door, so she was always right there if we needed anything. Elizabeth was very friendly and helpful. It was a total success.
Stayed 6 nights in Nov 2021

Awesome place
This was a great place to be with the family, in a beautiful and quiet area, close to both Monterey and Carmel! Elizabeth was great! We had a lovely time

5/5 Excellent

Salinas Perfection!
We had a track day at Laguna Seca and this place couldn’t have been any closer. Elizabeth is so sweet and friendly and accommodating. It’s a beautiful property, lots of privacy internally from your housemates and just overall cozy and was great for our small pupper. Thanks Elizabeth!

5/5 Excellent

Best VRBO Experience We Have Ever Experienced
Incredible property in the most beautiful location. The stay was nothing short of a dream. But the property manager manager made what we thought was the best experience even better. She was super friendly, helpful, attentive to our needs and made us feel more like old friends than renters. Can’t recommend this property enough.
