"We want to thank you so much for your kind hospitality while we were in Monterey. From meeting us at the airport to delivering a gift bag, you thought of everything. You went ‘above and beyond’ the call of duty, especially with the invitation to visit the Aquarium. That was fantastic. We felt very much welcomed and at home during our stay.” -Chris Rebman
