Overview

Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful Victorian received the 2004-2005 Award for best Pacific Grove historic home remodel from the Historical Society.

The perfectly restored home features two bedrooms (spaced for ultimate privacy with each

having access to their own bathrooms), a spacious and open living room/dining room combination as well as a custom designed kitchen, comfortable den, quaint backyard deck and a laundry room.

Stroll east a few blocks and find yourself among the downtown boutiques and stores and as well as many of the nearly 60 restaurants located in Pacific Grove. Travel west the same distance and you will be standing on the shore of majestic Monterey Bay.

Recreational opportunities (golf, biking, kayaking), shopping and dining experiences and sightseeing excursions (17 Mile Drive, Monterey Aquarium, Big Sur) are all within easy reach of Pacific Grove and the famous Monterey Peninsula.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The description of the cottage matched our needs, and the location was perfect. We've never shared a rental with another couple before, and it worked very well for all of us. Having two bathrooms makes all the difference. It's a charming house in a quiet, but friendly neighborhood of similar homes. Everything inside is fresh, clean, and very well maintained.



We were busy every day and enjoyed evening strolls to the main part of town, just a few blocks away. Pacific Grove is our favorite location to stay anywhere on Monterey Bay. The Monterey Aquarium is spectacular, and the two guest passes are a welcome bonus, as you need to go more than once.



We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends, and we hope to stay there again ourselves.

The Saggy Bed Inn

  • 1 of 5
We recently had the bad luck to have chosen this cottage for a weeks stay over Thanksgiving...The location was great, and most of the furniture was of good quality & comfort...except for the most important furnishings...The Beds....they are of poor quality, and sag so badly that no one got a decent nights rest the entire stay. I would not recommend this place to anyone wishing a restful nights sleep.

Owner's Response: On the morning of the fifth day (the day after Thanksgiving) of a seven day stay, I received a call from the renter complaining about the beds and that all were having a difficult time with their backs.

I explained to her that this was the first and only complaint I had ever received regarding the beds and she suggested that if I were to give a discount she wouldn't write a bad review. Not qualified to place a price tag (discount) on someone's health, I informed her I would be more than happy to give a complete refund on the final three nights so that they could find what they felt were better accommodations elsewhere.

She then told me she would have to check with her husband who was "out for a LONG WALK and wouldn't see him for three or four hours" and would have to call me back.

In the meantime, I went to the VRBO website and located four properties with the same price range and bedrooms to assist them in their search.

She never called me back.

A beautiful Victorian Home - a treat to stay in!

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased to find this fabulous home! It is so beautifully kept with TLC and so comfortable. Gary and Susan have thought of everything and were very responsive through the whole process. The location was perfect and we enjoyed walking in the neighborhood. Thank you!

Great house. Great visit.

  • 5 of 5
I have nothing but praise for Susan and Gary's house in Pacific Grove. The house features two comfortable bedrooms, a living room, separate sitting room and two baths. The house is decorated with attractive Victorian furniture and fixtures. Great state of the art kitchen. Towels and bedding are high quality. Communication with Gary leading up to my visit was top-notch. The house is in a great location – a few blocks from Pacific Grove's quaint downtown and the shore.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5
The location of the home is very centrally located with easy walks to downtown Pacific Grove, Lover's Point and Cannery Row. The home is well stocked and very comfortable and clean. It was perfect for two couples on our recent stay. There was also plenty of room for everyone to hang out together or separately. There is even a nice outdoor patio area with seating for 4. The next door neighbors were very helpful and informative about the locale and the history of the rental house. We used the aquarium passes which was a very nice added treat! Gary, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely rent this home in the future.

Pacific Grove Cottage

  • 5 of 5
What a pleasant surprise when we arrived at the rental. It was everything you had described. We loved the Victorian decor and immediately felt at home. We give you a 5 star rating, as it was very definitely people friendly, very clean and well maintained. We had another couple with us, and unlike other rentals we have used, yours had everything we needed, and then some.

We certainly will recommend your place to others.

Thank you so much for making our stay at Pacific Grove (for the car show) and extremely pleasurable one.

Incredibly charming home; ideal for romantic getaway or even a family of four like ours!

  • 5 of 5
This charming home worked so well for our family of four. The passes to the aquarium were an even bigger plus than anticipated, considering the cost to visit the aquarium; we took turns (one parent and one child) and popped in and out of it a number of times (go at the end of the day; hardly anyone there!!!). Walked to Crema each morning for coffee, walked all around Pacific Grove... the perfect location and place to stay while visiting PG. When considering that a hotel room with two beds would have cost just about what we paid to stay in this lovely, historic home... there's no comparison! This home had everything we needed and more. Just being inside the home with its attention to every detail was sooo relaxing and enjoyable. The owners were amazing to work with as well; very professional and straight-forward. Highly recommend!
