You will love this house. Wake up to ocean view. You can hear ocean wave activity off in the distance. Take relaxing walks by the beach. The house is walking distance to the beach (.8 of a mile), walking trails, a wonderful French Bakery, Trader Joe's, and other wonderful restaurants. The house was previously owned and remodeled by a Monterey Bay Aquarium renowned architect.

Escape to a relaxing retreat furnished with cushy leather furniture, Tiffany lighting, warm wood furnishings, fine art, hardwood floors and open beams, outdoor large stone fireplace, all in a vibrant 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 2200 square foot, Pacific Grove home away from home! 2 Queen and 1 Full Sized Luxury Beds with down comforters and pillows. For larger groups I do have two queen sized aero beds (top of the line and blow up in minutes) that fit comfortably in the ocean view entertainment room with home theater and roof top ocean view deck. The ET room also has its own bathroom with heated floors. Numerous windows look out into the treetops and the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The intimate yard with fountains (from the Filoli Mansion), succulents, and ornamental plants enclose the patio with Adirondack chairs.

A roof top deck with teak furniture overlooks the ocean for a wonderful setting for afternoon cocktails/romantic dinner. Settle into the inviting living room with over 700 CDs/DVD movies or bring your own to use on the fabulous music system provided. Includes IPOD connection to the house sound system. Enjoy a warm fire in the fireplace, play the beautiful grand piano located in the living room, or take a walk up the glass block-encircled staircase to entertain your guests in the spacious entertainment room that includes TV with DVD/VCR , Stereo , wireless internet access, and a view of the ocean!

The endless cookbook collection will inspire your inner chef!

The home is fully furnished and equipped with cookware, dinnerware, and kitchen linens. The home is beautifully lit with high-end lighting in the kitchen, hallways, bathrooms, and over artwork. Beds have mattress pads, beautiful linens, down pillows and pillow cases, blankets and bed spreads or down comforters. There are several sets of bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. There is a blow dryer available in the linen walk-in closet.

The back deck area includes a new stunning natural stone wall with seating area and large stone fireplace and amazing outdoor lighting (7 different lighting systems all on dimmers to create the perfect setting). There is a brand new large stainless steel Weber Genesis 330 Gas Grill. The hand carved french doors that lead into the back deck were purchased from an old Pebble Beach mansion located next to the famous 'Lone Cypress Tree'. It is a great place to have an outdoor dinner party or cocktail party or just enjoy a beverage by the fire. It's gorgeous.

There is a conveniently located enclosed patio for your pets to safely play. The house also has a sizeable doggy door for pet access. Just down the street is a wonderful dog walk called the 'Congress Avenue Dog Walk' where locals bring their dogs for afternoon walks. A true delight for dog lovers.

April and May are wonderful months to be in Pacific Grove. Beautiful sunny weather. It's the true summer time of Pacific Grove. November ,December and January is a great time to visit this area. Great wave activity by the ocean and clear crisp weather for great beach walks along Pacific Grove/Monterey Bay.

MOST MEMORABLE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was one of our most memorable family vacations, mainly because of Dan's wonderfully exquisite home. Just book this house--you will not regret it. There is so much to take in that you could just sit in each room and marvel at the thought and detail he has put into each decorating touch. From the moment you open the wooden front gate latch and walk on the stepping stones to the front door, you should know you are in for a treat. My only regret was that I did not video record the reaction of the kids the first time they entered the home. I have NEVER seen them so excited--there is so much to explore in this home. The kids raced from room to room, discovering the shiny baby grand piano, the beautifully appointed bedrooms, the turning staircase with glass block walls that leads to the upstairs bedroom, the 8 person whirlpool tub--but their screams got even louder when they discovered the "secret staircase" to what they affectionately referred to as the "kid's cave," which is a vast entertainment loft, complete with shiny new hardwood floors, a vaulted wood ceiling, sectional sofa, access to the rooftop deck, state of the art audio visual system, and room for 2 comfy queen aero beds for the kids to sleep on. There were 5 adults and 6 children in our party but the house is so spread out that we never felt cramped. Both Carmel and Monterey are short 5 minute drives and there is a Trader Joes and Safeway around the corner. The kitchen is state of the art and completely equipped. Dan was so easy to work with and was always available if we had any questions about the home or, more importantly, where to eat! We will definitely return here for another vacation.

GREAT PLACE TO ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
Dan's house is a great escape for small or large groups. There is a place for any individual to escape to for some privacy. It might be in the hot tub, or rooftop deck, or even the media room. I loved being able to find a spot for quiet reflection amidst great artwork, choice of novels or other literature, and/or the panoramic views of Pacific Grove. In short, this house has something for everyone who wants to be with the group or needs some quiet time alone. I am glad I found you, Dan. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Just coming off a long 5 day weekend spent at Dan's house in Pacific Grove. Wonderful!!!! My family and myself get together once a year and have a women's retreat and our decision to pick this house was one of the best. Dan was a pleasure to work with. The house was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed. We were minutes away from everything! The neighbor was very helpful and the spa was very relaxing and enjoyable. Thank you Dan, for letting us spend time at your home. It was great!!

LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Dan’s house in Pacific Grove and enjoyed it immensely. Our party included four women and my husband which could have been a disaster if not for this house. Lots of areas to have some quiet get away time whether someone wanted to watch TV, sit in front of the patio fireplace or in the hot tub or just on the observation deck enjoying the beautiful view. The house gives that sense of privacy for several groups at one time which is important for people traveling together for weeks at a time. The house is also very conducive to entertaining as four friends from Monterey came for dinner one night. The patio, with its fireplace and comfortable chairs provided us a great gathering place for wine and cheese before eating inside at a table that actually seats ten. What a great way to spend an evening.
The house is very warm and inviting, beautifully decorated with lots of color and antiques. It is very clean and plenty of dishes and linens for guests use. The furnishings are top notch and include a Viking range (which I fell in love with), new washer and dryer, great hot tub, wonderful sound systems and on and on. This felt like I was actually visiting someone at their home as we had everything we needed. A true traveler’s delight.

Dan was very easy to work with answering questions quickly and accurately. Provided a wealth of information about the area. The photos were pretty accurate but just couldn't capture the magic of the garden and patio at night. Truly a beautiful, serene setting.

As much as we enjoyed the house, the area is charming. It is in a residential area which is quiet and away from the noise and traffic. This area is definitely well situated being close to downtown Pacific Grove or Monterey. Excellent restaurants and attractions are just minutes away. The two Aquarium passes were definitely appreciated as we could skip the long ticket lines. A wonderful way to enjoy the Monterey peninsula. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

WONDERFUL STAY IN PACIFIC GROVE!

  • 5 of 5
My Wife and son stayed in Jan. 2014 and had a great time in this house.
We are winemakers from the Paso Robles area and wanted a place where we can cook in.
The Kitchen had everything we needed and even had the same stove (Viking) that we have in our house. The Aquarium passes were a plus. The outdoor fireplace was excellent and the Jacuzzi was large, new and well kept. Very clean house, nice feel to it and quiet street. Owner is first class and we thank him!
We will be back soon. Bob, Jo-Ann and Garrett.
