I am born and raised here on the Monterey Peninsula. Our home is walking distance to Old Town Salinas, YMCA, Maya Cinema, Banks and Hartnell College. If you are craving the ocean & are on a limited budget...just 20 miles away from Monterey, 23 miles from Carmel/Pebble Beach, 15 miles away from Marina & I go often. I am a Realtor in Monterey & my husband is in law enforcement. We have rented a room in our home for over 10 years & decided to convert to Airbnb.
