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.

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.

THE BEST!

This was a terrific week for all eleven of our family reunion gang. The Victorian was perfect in all aspects-- very spacious, wonderfully furnished, well stocked, in a location convenient to everything, and very enjoyable amenities in the front and back. Working with Mary and her "meet and greeters" was a pleasure. You couldn't ask for better attention to our needs and happiness. This was by far the best venue we have had for our reunions, and we can recommend it without reservation. Thanks Mary.

Perfect home for a perfect reunion!

After traveling from California to Minnesota for family reunions year after year, we challenged our siblings and spouses to make it happen in Gilroy this year to coincide with the Garlic Festival. The challenge was accepted and we were faced with locating a vacation home that would accommodate 13 adults! We couldn't have been luckier to find the home of Mary Looram in Pacific Grove. Staying in this old Victorian was as comfortable as being at home. It is well equipped with everything one would need, save for food and drinks, which we picked up in Pacific Grove immediately upon settling in at the house. Our family spent hours gathered around the spacious dining room table, cooking together in the kitchen, snuggled up around the firepit and lots of chats in front of the fire in the cozy living room. The bedrooms easily accommodated all 13 of us and even though there are only two bathrooms, it all worked out nicely.

Of course, being on the coast was quite a thrill for a bunch of Minnesotans and Mary's home is only a few blocks walk down to the water. Trips south to Point Lobos and Big Sur were a big hit and nearby Pacific Grove and Monterey offers many wonderful eateries.

Mary is also very generous with suggestions of things to do in the area and is such a gracious hostess. Correspondence with her before, during and after our stay was like talking with a friend you'd known for years. If you want to feel like you're right at home while on vacation, this beautiful Victorian is a gem of a find! I have a feeling this could become an annual event!
Owner's Response: Thanks Chipper, I do believe the ambience of our home makes it a perfect place for families and friends to have a memorable stay. As another guest told me "your home is a happy place".

Plan your next get together at our Victorian!

Great house, great location, great vacation!

This was our first time using Home Away and it was a GREAT experience from start to finish. Mary kept in touch via email from the first day I contacted her. She went above and beyond to ensure that my family would have all that we needed.

The house is amazing...well-stocked and plenty of room to accomodate our two families. The backyard is beautiful and so peaceful. The location is perfect - most things are in walking distance. The house had plenty to keep all of our children (ages 4-16) entertained and happy. Having a comfortable home was so much better than a hotel. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing vacation that has all of the comforts of home!

During your visit be sure to check out the Aquarium and Asilomar Beach. If you have small children, Dennis the Menace Park was great. For the adults, I highly suggest dinner at The Inn at Spanish Bay. Get there early and have a cocktail around the firepits so you can hear the bagpipes played on the golf course.

Thank you so much, Mary! Your home is wonderful and I am so grateful that you were willing to share it with us. We certainly had a great time in Pacific Grove and created memories that will last a lifetime. We would love to visit again in the future!!
Owner's Response: Thank you. I feel our home is perfect for families and friends to enjoy each other's company in a relaxed atmosphere. The living room has two seating areas and the High Def Tv is upstairs in the family room. This allows great conversations downstairs , while those who wish to watch TV are not bothered. The yard is totally enclosed so the the Hot Tub and Fire pit can be enjoyed in private.

Come join the many famiies that have enjoyed Pacific Grove and our Victorian Home.
