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.

Memorable Weekend at the Big House

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends enjoyed a fun and memorable weekend at your house in

Pacific Grove. Our group included four married couples, two of whom have

young children and babies. The house made it possible for all of us, 10 adults, 2 children and 2 babies to gather for meals, to sit around a large table to eat and socialize, to play games with the children and babies inside and on the deck and lawn in the backyard, and to watch TV together in the large game room. The hot tub and fire pit were gathering spots for us at night.

There is so much space that any of us could find solitude in the house amid the swarm of activity. The house is perfect, as advertised, for a large family gathering.

The location was close enough to the auto races at Laguna Seca as well as Cannery Row's restaurants and shops, Fisherman's Wharf and the Aquarium to be very convenient and time saving.

Two of the couples experienced the Aquarium for the first time, thanks to your

kindness of providing tickets. The flowers, wine and apple cider were unexpected and appreciated pleasures. Very thoughtful and nice touches! Thank you also for instructing Liane to provide us with directions to access the pay-per-view channel. Liane is very welcoming, pleasant and helpful and gave us a grand tour upon our arrival. She was as proud of the home as if it were her own.

Everyone ended the week-end saying that we should do it again next year.

A Great Home Away from our Home

  • 4 of 5

This historic victorian was perfect for our family of 10. With a son & grand daughter living in Berlin we don't get a chance to get the whole family together very often. The house is kept up very well and in fact had just been painted. The kitchen was well stocked so we had no problem cooking most of our meals. The beds were very comfortable. It's location is a short walk to downtown which was very convenient to the restaurants and shops.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mel and Family for taking the time to write a review. I am happy our home worked well for your family. I hope you enjoyed the hot tub and Fire pit and the tickets to the Aquarium. I try my best to keep the house in good shape so thanks for mentioning that. Since three of our sons live in Asia, I know how wonderful it is to get everyone together in one place. Thankfully our home is large enough to make that happen. Thanks again for choosing our home for your family reunion. Sincerely, Mary

Wonderful, comfortable place for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us celebrate my mom's 80th birthday at your home. It easily accommodated the nine of us that stayed there. We prepared all our meals and especially loved the long dining room table for meals and playing games! The weather was perfect , just chilly enough in the evenings to enjoy sitting around the fire pit in the back yard. Thank you for the lovely flowers you left on the kitchen table and we definitely took advantage of the free passes to the Monterey Aquarium. The hot tub felt wonderful in the evening before bedtime,, relaxing with a glass of wine. Everyone was very impressed with your historic Victorian home and we all felt very comfortable throughout the house. Plenty of space to either hang out in a large group,, or find a quiet nook by oneself for some alone time. Thanks again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Diane, So happy you were able to celebrate your Mom's birthday at our home. It is fun to be able to sit around the fire pit and soak in the hot tub after a long day of sightseeing. Our family created a lot of happy memories there and we love sharing our home so other families can create their own. Thanks again Mary

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful relaxing get away retreat. We had a fabulous time and the house was perfect for our party of 12. The house is well laid out for large parties. There is plenty of room for everybody from the upstairs gathering room, to the large living area with lots of seating to the huge country kitchen. Plus there is a fabulous outdoor space with a large deck inclusive of fire pit and hot tub. We never felt like we were living on top of one another as there was so much space to spread out. I also appreciated that the kitchen was well stocked with plates, serving and cooking/ bakingware. A very nice bonus was the two passes to the aquarium that were unexpected, and gratefully accepted. LiAnne, the hostess, was there to show us the place and check us out and at our disposal in case we needed anything or had any problems which we did not. Thanks for the lovely stay. The walk to the butterfly park and along the coastline were both memorable - love watching the whales at this time of the year! Always special.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lynette, So happy your family of 12 enjoyed our home. I too like the fact that there are lots of places to go by yourself if you want to be alone. From the front porch to the balcony upstairs to the study with lots of great reading material or to just soak in the hot tub are welcome spots. Of course the Monterey Peninsula is a little bit of heaven and whale watching and the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium are always a hit as well as Pacific Grove, the butterfly town. Thanks for choosing our home for your get together. Warm Regards Mary

A lovely spacious house

  • 5 of 5

For Thanksgiving 2014- 11 of us stayed in this lovely spacious home. Fourteen of us sat down to dinner comfortably with the day spent cooking in a very accommodating kitchen. The 4 children could use the hot tub as we cooked, easily chaperoned by an adult. Others could read undisturbed either upstairs or down.I don’t think even one of us used any of the televisions, although at one point there were 4 Mac Pros in the office! The weather stayed good, and amongst our group various ones of us visited Point Lobos, the park a little further south of Point Lobos, Carmel, Pacific Grove, the beaches, Lover’s Point, and the Monarch Preserve which was just a walk away. The rain held off until we left. This was our second stay in this lovely home and we all had a grand time.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We love having our guests return and I'm happy your grandchildren suggested coming back. We are always trying to improve our home and are having a new kitchen floor installed this week as well s a new carpet in the bedroom overlooking the garden. It is a spacious home and the hot tub and fire pit are an added attraction. So pleased you all had a special Thanksgiving in our home. Thank again.
