Guestbook comments from the manager

Loved the flowers, wine and taffy, best visit yet. Great weather, minimal crowds, and of course, the Shadowbrook. An awesome place to stay.

Marilyn and Joe are the best, we needed a nice quiet beach home to entertain clients before a Cisco event in San Jose. Marilyn and Joe have the perfect house in a quite but accessible area. We were able to enjoy the beach and entertainment within walking distance. The Berg's allowed us tho ship Omaha Steaks to their home and we picked them up on our way to the beach. Marilyn let one of our clients to pick oranges right out of her yard. The weekend was magical. Oh yeah, business is good!

Thanks Marilyn and Joe! We will return.

Activity and Interests

The activities are infinite. Some ideas include surfing, shopping at the nearby mall,

hiking, dining (3 restaurants and a coffee shop located within walking distance at the harbor), rock climbing on the jetty, walking to the lighthouse, body boarding, kayaking, paddle surfing, or just plain relaxing! The Chardonnay cruise boat can take you out to whale watch or view the incredible sunsets during the winter months. In the home you will find two binders full of activities, maps, restaurants, shopping, etc. And, don't forget the famous MontereyBay aquarium and lovely Carmel Village about 45 minutes away.

A bottle of wine welcome gift awaits you!
