1160 sq. ft. | 3 Bedroom | 2 Bath | Sleeps 6 (2Q, 2T, 1A) Max. Occupancy 7
This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home in a residential area of upper Seaside is perfect for a longer stay. The main living areas – with panoramic ocean views - are on the upper level, along with the master bedroom and a full bath. Downstairs, two guestrooms (one Queen and one twin trundle) share a second bath (also with a tub/shower).
This home features multiple areas for enjoying the outdoors. A small deck off the living room has a gas barbecue, and on sunny days the ocean view balcony off the master bedroom will be your favorite hangout… unless you’re in the yard, serving wine and cheese on oak wine barrels under a vine-covered arbor… or warming yourself around the fire pit (Duraflame logs only) after the sun goes down.
The living room has bamboo floors, a large TV, and a gas log fireplace. The kitchen has tile countertops, a gas range, a side-by-side refrigerator and a breakfast bar (there’s also a glass-topped dining table with seating for four). But in this location, cooking is optional: take your pick from fast food, delis, diners, and a gamut of international cuisines: Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, German, Italian, and more.
Single car garage. Sleeps 6 in beds: 2 Queens and one twin trundle (plus air mattress for extra guests).

We really enjoyed our stay at Hilltop Haven. The home was very clean and had all the basic necessities. The only complaint I would have is that the mattresses on the trundle bed may be fine for children, but not for an adult. I tried both out for the 5 nights we stayed there and they were awful. It is a great location. Try Gusto's for some great Italian food!

Perfect location to explore the area, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur. House has great spaces outside to drink wine and visit and upstairs balcony has great sunset viewing. Would book again, super cute place, clean and very well appointed.
Great home but...
Reviewed by Josie
This house is beautiful and super comfortable and inviting. Well appointed. Spacious. Clean. Quiet and in a nice area. 10 minutes to lots of activities. Would recommend. However, I personally would not rent it again because of the key issue. They office to pick up and drop off the keys is 16 minutes away! Of course it was opposite direction of where we were arriving from and where we were going at check out. So it added an hour to our drive (4x15 minutes). When I read reviews from a year ago someone was complaining about that too and they had mentioned that the property manager was currently working on a lock box, a year later still not done. We are in the 21st century how hard it is to either install a lock box (5 minutes) or change the lock to a key-less entry with a keypad. We have been renting homes all over the world for 17 years now and never had to drive to pick up a key. Someone either met us at the home or a key was left for us to self check-in. This place was not cheap! I feel bad for the owner because it is a very nice home!
We promise: there will be an electronic lock installed this week. We've spent the last year testing out various products before finding a reliable keyless lock. Future visitors (which we hope will include you) will no longer have to waste any valuable vacation time driving to our office to pick up keys!
GREAT HOME IN SEASIDE
Reviewed by David
The Seaside home was wonderful! Our family of 4 Adults and one teen spent the week in the home during our visit to the Monterey/Carmel area. The home was exceptionally decorated, very clean, and had everything we could have asked in a rental for vacation. While the town of Seaside itself is a bit older and not as modern as some of the neighboring communities, the home was fantastic, modern and nicest on the street. The location was minutes from Monterey Aquarium/Wharf and Del Monte Beach area, which was awesome! Would highly recommend this home!
Well Stocked & Easy Access

My three sisters and I meet annually all over the United States. This year we picked Monterey and Carmel and this Airbnb was just perfect. Great access to everywhere we wanted to go and everything was well stocked so we could cook some great meals while we were there. Very well-maintained and in a good neighborhood. Highly recommend!

Our home away from home had everything we could have possibly needed as well as being aesthetically pleasing! The home is tastefully decorated. The bath towels were plentiful, soft, plush, luxurious. The kitchen had many gadgets to make life easier as well as spices, oils, paper towels and more. We loved being able to enter via the garage so we could leave our gear (hikers) there versus tracking things into the house (in the garage are beach chairs and other stuff as well if one needed). The views of the sunset each night were a treat from both decks and even the kitchen window. The beds were comfortable, lots of extra blankets and pillows. Truly a home with many added touches like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, huge closet space, snack bars and oatmeal, a homeowner's sign-in book to share our experience with them as well. We were convenient to the freeway and fortunately we could use a few back roads to avoid some of the commuter traffic, a nice convenience. In short, luxurious, convenient, relaxing and pleasurable.

This place was perfect for our trip. It is less than 15 minutes from Pebble Beach, Fisherman's Wharf, Carmel, and other locations. The house was comfortable for 5 people, nicely decorated and we had no issues at all. We would definitely stay there again if the opportunity comes up.

Perfect rental for our Aquarium trip
Reviewed by Bri
This was a great fit for my family of 4 (2 adults, 1 kid and 1 baby). The kids each had their own room downstairs and the master is upstairs, which was great after the kids went to bed. There was plenty of room in a downstairs bedroom for us to set up our portable crib. The beds were all very comfortable (coming from Tempurpedic owners!) and the place was well equipped with all the kitchen and bathroom items needed. We loved the recliner couches, so much so that my husband is looking into getting us one at home! We were provided a detailed and very helpful email with directions and instructions, so check in/out was a no-brainer. This gem is only a few miles from the Aquarium and we plan to try to stay again on future Monterey trips!
Perfect place for our family of 5
Reviewed by Joy
This place was great for our stay! We are a family of 5, all grown adults. We took advantage of the fireplace inside, the balconies, and the fire pit outside. The location is very close to town - about a 5 to 6 minute drive to the Wharf and Cannery Row. The kitchen was very well stocked and we cooked 2 of the 4 nights we were there. The ONLY thing we didn't care for was the sloping driveway (there is a garage you can park in but we were driving a huge suburban) and the bathroom counters were small so I couldn't spread my makeup/overnight bag out on the counter. Other than that, a wonderful stay at a wonderful property!!

This home is just lovely. It is equipped with absolutely everything you will need for a wonderful stay. I stayed over Christmas and brought everything I thought I would need to prepare a complete holiday meal. I found that everything but the potato masher was already there. the place is beautifully decorated and very clean. My family and friends had a wonderful time.
A perfect place
Reviewed by joanne
This Hilltop Haven was indeed perfect. It was beautifully appointed with a great floor plan. We were close to Monterey, 17 mile drive & grocery stores. Loved the garage, very comfortable beds, barbeque worked well with an extra propane tank and the neighborhood was quiet. The kitchen had every thing we needed to cook all our meals. Each room had a flat screen TV. There was a bulletin board with area maps which helped us select our outings. We used the backyard but could not get the log to ignite.
Great family house!

My family and I stayed here during a family wedding weekend for my cousin. We were six adults and a baby and it was a perfect amount of space and definitely enough room! We loved the open kitchen and living area, as well as the two different porches. The Keurig was also a nice unexpected touch.
The place was very clean and there were plenty of extra linens and towels. The staff was super helpful on the phone and in-person when picking up and dropping off the keys.
Overall, great experience at a great value! Definitely would recommend and stay again.

Hilltop Haven was the perfect home for my family and I as we spent a couple weeks traveling up and down the coast of California. It was spacious, modern, and extremely clean. It is close to many attractions as well as local food places. I would recommend this place to any family wanting to see the beautiful city of Monterey!

Loved this little house! Its very cozy and clean. It had all the kitchen supplies we needed for our stay, we even used the grill outside. The beds were very comfortable too. Only a short drive to the pier, cannery row and the downtown area. We would definitly stay again.
Reviewed by Laura
The Hilltop Haven is very comfortable and was what we expected based on the description with one exception. The site says it has a grill and when we were there, there was no grill on the premises. It has a bay view from the balcony off the master bedroom. We only used one bedroom, but the bed, pillows and linens in that room were great. The kitchen had every thing I needed We were quite satisfied with it. We did find the key return process inconvenient. The rental office is 15 minutes from the house so we lost a half hour at our departure because we had to go to the office to return the key, and then go right back the way we came.
The barbecue grill is located on the small deck off the living room. We're so sorry you didn't see it, and wish you had called our 24 hour line so we could have let you know the location. We do apologize for the extra time it took to return your keys (we are currently researching automated lock solutions).
