FAMOUS HISTORIC CAPTAIN'S CASTLE WITH AMAZING VIEWS OF MONTEREY BAY

Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

Large Flat Screen HDTV in the family room, DVD player, Gas BBQ, complimentary spa & wine tasting passes, hors d'oeuvres upon arrival with wine or sparkling cider, spa amenities in the bathrooms, high thread count linens and luxury bath towels, spa robes, l

If the idea of watching the waves crash on the rocks just outside your door from a tower in a fantasy house that melds elements of a castle with quaint Victorian charm, then this 3-story retreat in Pacific Grove has your name on it.

There is really no categorizing this historic home built in 1883 that sits just steps from Monterey Bay and a gorgeous walking/bicycling trail that meanders for 7 miles along the coastline. You're less than a 10 minute walk along this trail to Cannery Row and the aquarium.

The exterior of this whimsical 4-bedroom, 2-bath board-and-batten dwelling, called “Captain's Castle,” comes complete with gargoyles, gables and stained glass windows. The predominant feature is a square tower that offers a bird's-eye view of all the comings and goings on the bay.

As you open the front door to the entry, with its coved ceiling and built-in cabinetry with insets of royal blue, topaz and wine that match the stained-glass panels framing virtually every window in the house, you will feel you are in your own seaside inn. The entry leads to a cozy Victorian-style living room with a high paneled ceiling, brass-faced gas fireplace and an antique chandelier. The elegant furnishings include an ivory brocade sofa, 2 azure velvet chairs, glass and metal coffee and end tables and patterned area rug. Both rooms look out to the bay. The 1st story and most of the 2nd have hardwood floors.

You will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the Spa on the Plaza in Monterey and tickets for a Scheid Winery tasting in Carmel. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and luxury towels.

Enjoy movies or conversation in a spacious family room with hardwood wainscoting, a cocoa-colored sectional, ottoman and a 50” flat-screen TV. An open counter pass-through with stools connects the family room to the updated kitchen with its beautiful wood cabinets and slate gray Corian countertops. Everything you could desire for preparing and serving fabulous gourmet meals is available, including a Viking stainless steel gas range, Sub Zero side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and beautiful dishes and tabletop accoutrements.

Enjoy coffee or casual meals at a round table for 4 in a sun room facing the fenced-in back patio or take your food outdoors to the wrought-iron pergola equipped with 2 comfortable chairs, a metal table and chairs and umbrella. Pets are welcome.

More formal meals can be served in a dining room with paneling with blue insets, a vaulted ceiling and a bay window. A wooden Queen Anne table and upholstered chairs can seat up to 8.

A full bathroom on this floor has a claw-foot bathtub/shower with a surround curtain. A separate laundry room has a stacking washer/dryer.

The 2nd floor has 4 bedrooms. The first – with a king bed with luxury linens and a white coverlet and tucked comforter -- has windows that look to a park and the bay. A 2nd bedroom, overlooking the backyard, has a king with luxury linens, white-on-white coverlet and comforter, an antique bedside table and a rocking chair. A 3rd smaller bedroom, with ocean vistas, has a queen with a white coverlet and yellow comforter.

Bask in ocean views from the king bed -- fitted with a white coverlet and ivory comforter and blue and yellow accents -- in the master bedroom.

A large white-tiled bathroom with plum accents features a deep claw-foot tub and a step-in basin shower with water pipes exposed as in days of yore (directions for operation provided).

The piece de resistance, however, is the 3rd-floor tower with its panoramic views of the bay during the day and the twinkling lights of adjacent cities at night. Two day-bed couches (which can be made into a queen with Memory Foam topper) and a round coffee table provide the perfect setting for morning coffee or happy hour.

Garage and driveway can park 4 cars.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have stayed in several houses in Pacific Grove and the Captain's Castle is by far the best yet! We all appreciated the view and location that the Castle provided in the tower. It was truly a special experience and we can not wait to return. Thank you for sharing this exceptional place with us.

Reviewer Comments:
This home is warm, comfortable, well appointed with everything you need and the views... these views are amazing!
The main floor is large enough for 4 couples to cook, relax, have a nice dinner (inside or outside) with the 2nd floor containing all the bedrooms- and the 3rd floor tower for lounging to enjoy the views. It really breaks up the space perfectly for couples to travel together. It's 1/2 mile to Canary Row and a bit further to Fisherman's Wharf. The walking trail is beautiful, with seals lounging within view. We parked our car and didn't drive again until time to head home.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would stay in this home again every time!

I have rented many vacation rentals around the world and found that the Captain's Castle ranks up near the very top of my list. The Castle has character and the location cannot be beat! There were 7 adults and 1 toddler in our group and the size and layout were perfect. We found it to be extremely clean and the kitchen is well stocked. The private backyard with the large gas grill was an added bonus. We hope to be back in the Captain's Castle in the future.

Reviewer Comments:
When planning our family weekend away, we were looking for a place that would allow us all time together somewhere we all could explore and enjoy. Captain's Castle was everything we hoped for - and more! Our family, (which includes 3 adult children), loved the time we had - long walks along the water, visiting the aquarium, golf at Pebble Beach, exploring nearby Carmel, a wonderful bike ride on the coast path and, every night, time together in the tower - amazing views, lots of laughter and stories of our day. The house was warm and welcoming, the location incredible and the time we had was everything we hoped for. The perfect getaway. We can't wait to return!

Reviewer Comments:
Our mini-family reunion (5 adults; 2 children)so enjoyed our 4 days here. What a major "Wow" factor in addition to being both sophisticated and family-welcoming. Warm and inviting with much attention to the details of comfort and convenience: lots of room to spread out as desired and also have cozy together time; truly a fully equipped, well-working kitchen; plentiful towels; and even laundry detergent. The Tower provided all ages the excitement of watching for otters and dolphins. A "5" in all ways. We have already recommended to others.

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beach combing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tide pooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.
