On July 27, 2014, we celebrated a special birthday for my sister. She lives in Pacific Grove, but we had siblings and friends coming from out of town. The challenge was to find a place for everyone to stay for several nights and where we could have the birthday celebration and a great get together. The answer was the Ripple House. It worked perfectly!
Everyone had a comfortable bedroom. The great room was an ideal place to greet guests and spend time together. The backyard worked perfectly for entertaining everyone. Everything we needed was right there: all the kitchen stuff, a great grill, guides to local restaurants and events. Best was the bocce ball court in the backyard. We played each evening (we’re a competitive bunch), and it was great fun.
Ripple House is spacious and comfortable; well decorated with first-class furnishings. It’s close to…
• ocean and beaches. (We saw whales, harbor seals, and otters!)
• Pacific Grove and Cannery Row. (We walked to town for coffee and pastries one morning.)
• Monterey Bay Aquarium. (A must to visit. We went twice!)
• Pacific Grove Natural History Museum. (A great place for kids and adults.)
We spent mornings catching up over coffee, afternoons walking along the ocean, and evenings playing games around the French country dining table. Everyone loved the house and being together there.
I asked each of my brothers and sisters to rate Ripple House on a 5-point scale: 5s all around. We highly recommend this vacation rental for people coming to the Monterey Peninsula for a getaway and a celebration. My family had an extraordinary get together there!
