Overview

Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

2br/1ba, Ocean views and 50 yards from the coast

This charming 2br, 1ba was owned by one family for many years. Recently purchased from the estate, it has been extensively remodeled and upgraded. All new: paint, landscape, windows, roof, tile floors, granite counter tops, fixtures, decorating, and lots of upgrades.

Best of all - it is 50 yards from the coast with expansive bay views from the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and full-length rear deck!! You can stroll miles of coastal trail from Pacific Grove to Marina.

Located between Lover's Point and the golf course, this is an outstanding location for diving and kayaking. Walk to your favorite eateries and attractions - the Aquarium, Cannery Row, PassionFish, Asilomar and the Pt Pinos Grill at the golfcourse. There's plenty of room for kayaks, bikes, golf clubs, and dive gear - so bring the toys!

Want to enjoy wildlife? We have watched whales and porpoises from the living room, spot sea otters and seals on a daily basis, and frequently have deer walking down the street in front of the house! Monarch butterflies can be found all over town in the fall, and there's more exotic wildlife at the aquarium. Comes with 2 guest passes to Monterey Bay Aquarium!

This home is located on Balboa Ave - one of the most desirable streets, in the best neighborhood in Pacific Grove. It's set one street back from Ocean Front, so you get to enjoy being close to the ocean, with more solitude and privacy.

Inside, find two spacious bedrooms with very comfortable queen pillowtop beds, and warm comforters. A trundle bed in the second bedroom expands sleeping capacity to five. The large living room has relaxing seating for many, while enjoying a glass of wine and watching the bay. On cooler nights, enjoy the fireplace and play music from your ipod on our stereo, or watch a movie!

The kitchen is bright, cheery, and very functional. In the morning, watch the sunrise over the bay from the cozy kitchen table, while enjoying Pavel's pastries and a latte or cappucino. In the evenings, whether making pasta for friends, or bbq'ing on the rear deck - you'll enjoy the accessibility to the rest of your party and all of the amenities.

Equipped with wireless networking, 2 HDTV's, premium cable, and iPod hookups. Dishwasher in the kitchen and washer and dryer in the garage.

About Ron and Christy Lloyd

We are native Californians, have owned our home in PG for since 2006, and underwent an extensive remodel so we can move here fulltime. We absolutely love our neighborhood and our neighbors - and know you will as well. Hiking, golf, fishing and kayaking run in our family, so we've got plenty of experience to give you good advice on all of the local activities

We have excellent recommendations for masseuses, restaurants, dive charters, whale-watching charters, kayaking beaches, and the all-important bakery.

Ron and Christy Lloyd purchased this house in 2012

Why Ron and Christy Lloyd chose Pacific Grove

We didn't start out to get into the hospitality business, but when this charming house became available, we decided to take the plunge. We have traveled all over the world and know what we'd like to see in a vacation property, so we made major investments in remodeling the home, and did it all with the vacationing traveler in mind. We wanted to create a space where we would want to spend a weekend, a week, or a month.

What makes this house unique

We're very close to the trail, golf course, Lover's Point, Asilomar, Cannery Row and the Wharf - you can park the car and enjoy a short walk to every possible amenity. And when you're done with an invigorating day on Monterey Bay, entertain with beautiful bay views on the full length rear deck.

Excellent house and location, even for a longer stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was just as described, if not better. It was roomier than we expected from the pictures. The second bedroom is plenty large for a couple and child. The view from the deck in the evening was particularly pleasant. Trail by the bay is indeed just a minute away. The neighborhood was very nice, quiet with lots of residents, not just renters, and neighborly. Easy walk to downtown Pacific Grove, restaurants, and to Lovers Point. The aquarium is a long walk away. We appreciated the aquarium passes. The house was very clean and very nicely stocked, full of good kitchen equipment, towels, and bath supplies. Little details made it especially welcoming, like a bottle of wine greeting us and a sweatshirt in the closet. The hosts were easy to work with, helpful and cordial. We stayed a month, and this house made a great base for exploring away during the day and returning to a comfortable place at night. And comfortable for the days in, when we lounged in the living room and on the deck and had dinner in. We highly recommend the house and these professional and welcoming owners.

Great visit in February

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this home in Pacific Grove. The house was charming and very clean and well-maintained. We loved being close to the walking trail (though driving distance to sandy beaches) and found the coastline to be spectacular. We especially enjoyed our hike at Point Lobos -- highly recommended! Spent a fun morning at the Aquarium and it was great to have the guest passes. Ron was super helpful and responsive when I contacted him with a payment question.

Loved the location, a quick walk into Pacific Grove or to the bayside pathway. Clean and comfortable, with sunny (morning) back deck that runs the length of the house, had a barbecue one evening (bring charcoal). Owners included welcome bottle of wine and 2 comp tickets to the aquarium, nice addition. Kitchen is small but well-stocked if you are planning to cook. Overall, a good deal for those who want a comfy, quiet, little cottage with a partial view of the ocean.

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here! This house was quiet and just a block away from the water. We got to see the most beautiful sunrise and an amazing moon in the sky and on the water. The two public chairs by the water were conveniently located for seating and enjoying the sound of waves and all the beauty that nature had to offer!!! We had a wonderful & very serene weekend!!!

EXCELLENT location and perfect house!

  • 5 of 5
The location of this house is amazing!
We were attending a wedding at Lovers Point, and you can easily walk there. Although we did drive since it was slightly cold and the reception was a bit away. Every day we walked from the house pushing the jogging stroller. You are able to walk in either direction on the path at the coasts edge which truly is just steps away. We would load up sand toys and find a spot and just sit in the sand and let our 2yr old play. Grocery stores are close by. And some novelty shops within walking distance. We never got a chance to visit those shops because we just wanted to be by the water!
The house itself was exactly as decribed in pictures. I think even a little better! The slice of water you can see from the dining table makes all the difference. The kitchen is fully equipped. All you need to bring is food. We even had another couple over with their little ones for dinner one night. There were only maybe 2 things we had to put up and away from small hands so they wouldn't break anything, other than that it was child friendly too. The bedrooms are plenty big. The room with two beds is huge, we put the packnplay in there and it worked just fine. The beds are soft and comfy with nice bedding and extra stuff is located in the closets if you need more warmth or pillows. I even found a bandaid in a first aid kit when we needed one. We were able to watch the Giants games on the soft cuch and after putting the little one to bed, we would sit out on the deck(with blankets) and enjoy some wine and the swaying of the water!
The owner was very friendly and easy to communicate with.
The two aquarium passes were such a nice touch and being our little guy is under 3 he was free. We then had a fantastic lunch at the fish hopper nearby. Seafood risotto with a glass of wine and the bay views = a ridiculously good time!
We only wished we stayed longer! We will be back, no doubt about that! I will highly recommend this house to our family and friends, so glad we found this little gem of a place!

Cozy, beautiful ocean views, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
My family of five had a fantastic time in this home! The pictures are an accurate representation of what you will get. As a family with three kids (6, 4, and almost 1), we were a little concerned from the description that it would be a tight squeeze, but actually we had plenty of space! The master bedroom closet is spacious enough to fit a pack-and-play, which let us keep the baby in the room with us at bedtime. The second bedroom has a nice open space in the middle that the older kids could use for toys, and a nice big closet as well. The bathroom was the only place where we felt cramped--there's almost no counter space--but we made it work :) Having a fully functional kitchen was a great amenity, as it allowed us to cook a simple few meals in (pancake breakfast!) and avoid eating out for every meal.

The beach is just across the street and down a flight of stairs. As you can see from the pictures, the view is gorgeous. The kids loved looking at tidepools and finding hermit crabs. The beach was covered in seaweed and rocks, though, so it's not really good for swimming or laying out on a towel if that's what you had in mind. The aquarium and cannery row are easily within walking distance for adults or older kids. (If you have little ones, though, you'll probably want to drive.)

The owners were very helpful, and sent a very useful list of local places to visit. Two free passes to the aquarium were a nice bonus as well. :)

I would recommend this place without reservation--I am very happy I chose it. The location is spectacular. It's got the view and amazing proximity to all the sights and local restaurants. We almost got a slightly bigger place further inland, but I am sure I made the right choice with this rental.

Map

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is slightly over 1 mile away. Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf are also favorite attractions. We have whales nearly year-round, peaking in the spring and summer months. And monarch butterflies flock to PG in the fall.
