WE LOVED PACIFIC GROVE

  • 5 of 5
We all had a fantastic time at this house, which is a very comfortable and charming family home. Everything was as described on the website and all very clean and well-maintained.

Upstairs there is a large den which the kids loved - this worked very well for us when we wanted to enjoy peace and quiet around the fire downstairs. The front porch was another favourite area - we spend many hours there in the morning with our coffee watching the world go by.

Location is a very big advantage to staying here - the beach, and lovely shops and restaurants of Pacific Grove are a 5 minute walk away. The walk into Monterey to visit the aquarium (do not miss) is around 1/2 hour (slow pace) and follows the coast. The street the house is on is very quiet. We saw deer running down the road a number of times in the morning.

The owner of this property is a pleasure to deal with - prompt replies to emails and very helpful. We arrived to a fresh bunch of flowers, bottle of wine and welcoming card - thanks very much, Mary, we'd love to come back some day. My mother-in-law described staying at your home as life-enhancing and I agree.

WHAT A PERFECT PLACE FOR A FAMILY REUNION!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home- full of conversation areas, plenty of room for our growing family. We came with our children and grandchildren - 17 total (and 1 on the way). All of our children expressed a desire to return because it was 'perfect'. Highlights: spa, enclosed back yard, 2 different living areas, big eat in kitchen that was well equipped. Mary was a very gracious host and got back to us right away about a very minor issue. The weather also cooperated and we had a perfect family reunion! I wholeheartedly recommend this home!

Owner's Response: Thank you Dianne. We love our home to but we are a bit prejudiced. It's nice to hear our guests enjoy it as much as we do. We love sharing our Victorian so other families can create memories as we have.

GREAT LOCATION FOR OUR FAMILY GET-TOGETHER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 12, including 6 children, had a delightful vacation in this historic well-lit beautiful home. Mary answered all of our questions before booking and we were pleasantly greeted by Liane on our arrival. The large kitchen plus extra dining area gave us enough cooking and eating space, the hot tub and fenced backyard with fire pit were well used, and the cold July evenings even had us turning on the gas fireplace in the living room! We managed fine with only 2 bathrooms as well. There is a nearby local grocery store which is VERY neighborly, and the house is well-situated in town - walking distance to the little downtown, Lover's Point beach, and the Aquarium. The house certainly met all of our needs and is a good choice for those with children as well.

A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, I WILL BE RETURNING!

  • 5 of 5
I was privileged to stay in this Lovely Lady during my reunion on the Peninsula. This is an amazing house, so authentic and well maintained in beautiful Pacific Grove. The amenities are suited for large family gathering. The location is perfect being within 20 minutes of just about everything on the Peninsula. I highly recommend that you book your vacation here and bring your family. I will definitely be returning. I feel so fortunate to have been able to stay. Thank you.

AMAZING WEEKEND AT AN AMAZING HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Several of my friends and I stayed in this house for our high school reunion and it was fantastic! The house is large and charming, with a beautiful backyard that is perfect for get togethers--we spent hours with friends around the fire pit catching up, it was amazing! The house is in a perfect location in the Monterey Bay area--with Carmel, the Aquarium, and Pebble Beach all easily accessible. Pacific Grove itself is very charming and you can easily walk into town from the house. You can also walk down to Lover's Point and walk right along the bay.
I hope to have my own family reunion here at some point---it would be perfect for both the adults and kids!! Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home!!!

LOVELY OLD ATMOSPHERIC FAMILY HOME.

  • 5 of 5
I booked the house from Mary in the Spring for the Monterey Historic race weekends, we filled the house completely with friends from the US and Europe.
The house was very accurately described, spotless upon arrival, and every time I needed something, screw driver, tape, bottle opener anything, I always found i, in exactly the place I would use at home.
What you cannot describe in an advertisement is the atmosphere, this is a very happy friendly house, great for having dinners at home chatting in the kitchen, everyone felt completely at home.
Pacific Grove is a charming Monterey Peninsular small town, full of restaurants, cafes, very friendly and cool after the summer heat of Houston.
The owner and service manager were charming and welcoming, a great place to stay and I will be back.
