I grew up in Pacific Grove and have always loved the hometown feel. People are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Pacific Grove. Very close to famous Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach Lodge and famous Carmel for dining and shopping or just wandering around.
Lori purchased this house in 1954
There is just so much to do from this spot in Pacific Grove. I grew up in this neighborhood and have always loved it so much. My family has so much history in this area. My parents lived in this home for over 50 years and enjoyed every day of it. We have updated the home with refinished hardwood floors, tile entry, new sofa and loveseat, new Milgard windows, freshly painted inside and out, new blinds, crown molding, new backyard bar, new gardens, new GE 4 burner
electric range, microwave, new coffee pot, dishes etc. Everything freshened up and updated for our guests.
Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Also close to Laguna Seca and Carmel Mission! Wonderful Sunday morning Catholic church services at the Carmel Mission. Just meander through Carmel and follow to the river where the Carmel Mission is.
We had a wonderful time at Hank and Lori's PG home! The view from the living room is fabulous -- I enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning we were there. The home is comfortable and clean, and has many original features which we loved! We were all so relaxed there, even our pets. The location can't be beat...just up the street is Lighthouse for morning coffee and shopping. One block down is the bay with walking trails for us and our dogs. A market, restaurants, Cannery Row, the Aquarium and Lover's Point are also within walking distance. Each night we cooked dinner and found the kitchen to be clean and incredibly well stocked. The yard is completely fenced and safe for pets and provides a lovely place to sit. The details given to furnishings for guests are thoughtful and much appreciated. We will most certainly book another stay and have recommended to our Long Beach friends. Thank you Hank and Lori for a perfect get-away!
This is a very nice house with all the amenities. We stayed here with our two kids and a dog. There is a ocean trail a block away which was perfect for long walks. This trail also leads to the aquarium which was enjoyed by our kids with the two passes we received from the owner. We enjoyed the lovely living room and the board games in the house.
The owner was wonderful and very accommodating and gave us the keys before we paid (as we reserved this house at the last minute). Thank you, Lori. We plan to visit again.
This was a great house and felt like home for the 4 days the 5 of us were there. It is so close to the ocean walking distance to the aquarium and a very good breakfast place, First Awakening. The house was very clean and the backyard lovely. Ocean views in three of the rooms was much enjoyed.
We enjoyed our stay at your property for our daughters wedding in July 2014! Thank you the house was perfect for us and our dog!
We had a wonderful time in this comfortable, relaxing home. We loved looking out at the water from the living room window and being so close to everything. It was a short walk to the water, the aquarium, Lover's Point, shops, restaurants and even golf. We appreciate so much that our dogs were welcome as it made us feel so at home to have them with us and be able to walk all over PG with them. The house was clean and spacious. The huge living room was great for playing board games (we brought some but there were also some in the house to borrow) and just relaxing together. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bathroom had both a shower and tub which was nice though the 4 of us did have to space out our bathing a bit so the hot water heater could re-heat but that was not a big deal for us. The back yard was great so the dogs could go out if they needed, though we walked them around so much, they mostly just slept in the house when we were home! The bedrooms were both very nice with plenty drawers and and room for things if needed. I highly recommend this home to rent as its exactly what we want when we go to PG-- to feel at home and relaxed and to be close enough to walk to most everything. We found ourselves wishing we could stay and live in this house year-round!
Very charming home, it was perfect for our short get away. The home was equipped with everything we needed, even enjoyed a warm fire two of the nights we were there. The barbeque was great to have, the kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable and the view was tranquil. Our little dog appreciated having the backyard. The house is also conveniently located, allowing us to walk to cannery row, the aquarium and the coastal trail. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Hank and Lori for your hospitality.
