Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 1/2 bath, sleeps 6-8

You will discover why Pacific Grove calls itself “the last hometown,” in this pristine single-story ranch-style home whose traditional look has been updated for contemporary tastes. Imagine upscale Pottery Barn élan meets sun-drenched beach palette. This recently renovated three-bedroom two and one half bath cottage, which sleeps eight, is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood and makes a perfect getaway for family and friends to reconnect.

The location can't be beat. It is one street away from the Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, which follows the shoreline from beautiful Asilomar Beach around the point to Cannery Row and the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium.In addition to Esplanade Park, there is a tiny public succulent garden nearby. The friendly shops, restaurants and boutiques of downtown Pacific Grove are just a mile away. A picturesque lighthouse is a mere half-mile away, and a fine municipal golf course with ocean views that is the locals' best kept secret is a few blocks up the street. Carmel and Monterey are 10 minute drives.

This cheerful yellow house trimmed in white and teal has a classic feel with a curving stone path that leads to the front door and the tiled entry that opens to the comfortable living room. The interior has hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout. Family and friends can gather for visiting, playing games, puzzles or watching their favorite programs or movies on the 42' HDTV in the comfortable living room with its red-brick fireplace, cushy sofas and sturdy dark wood tables. You can see the ocean from the dining room that features a dark wood rectangular table that seats six and old-fashioned wrought-iron chandelier. Cooking will be a pleasure in the bright, fully-equipped kitchen with its well-conceived layout and pristine white cabinetry and appliances -- including new gas range, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Read a magazine or book and sip your morning coffee at a round oak table in a cozy breakfast nook.

Luxury linens will make you feel like royalty, especially in the master bedroom that has a Queen Bed with excellent mattress and a love seat/chaise that can become a single bed with Memory Foam topper. The sparkling new master bathroom is tiled throughout and features dark wood cabinetry and a tub/shower. A second bedroom can sleep two in a king with Memory Foam topper that converts to two twins. The third bedroom is set up with 3 twin beds that can be converted to a King bed with a twin bed. A handsome second full bathroom has Corian counters and a tub/shower lined with gleaming sea-foam and white tiles. To make your stay more comfortable, we provide plush spa bathrobes, slippers, and over-sized towels and beach gear.

Watch the ever-changing light over Monterey Bay at sunset while you enjoy cocktails at a bistro table on a wooden deck that overlooks the back yard. A gas grill is provided. The completely enclosed back and side yard is perfect for privacy. For gourmet cooks, we also have an herb garden with 4 different of kind of herbs in our back yard. A washer and dryer are located in the one-car garage just off the kitchen. There is additional parking in the driveway and on the street. Because the house is completely level and there are no steps, it is excellent for anyone with disabilities.

Earl and Brigitte Aiken purchased this house in 2010

We found that as soon we get to our cozy and peaceful cottage we start to unwind from the stress of our regular lives.

Cozy, peaceful and great location a street away from the Monterey Peninsula Recreation Trail along the beach. Perfect for family and friends to share good time together.

Our family enjoyed our stay tremendously in this lovely home! The location is just a few blocks from the ocean in a nice neighborhood. The home itself is well put together and very comfortable. The owner, Earl, is a pleasure to interact with and very responsive. We had a couple things that needed addressing during our stay and Earl responded very quickly! We definitely would love to come back again!

Great Home! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Everything was clean and fresh. It made the daily tasks we had to complete a little less stressful knowing we could come back "home" and relax.
Thank so much!

We were in PG/Carmel for a birthday weekend for my wife. Our adult children joined us and we had a wonderful time. The house was in a great, central location to our activities and provided a fantastic base for our activities. It is very well appointed and immaculately clean. The fireplace and cable TV made the living room a welcome place on the routinely foggy afternoons in PG.

This house was perfect for my parents since there were no stairs or a second floor, which is hard to find in the area. Impressed on how Very, Very Clean the house was and how well stocked the kitchen is. You can tell the owners take pride in offering renters a quality stay. Everything was awesome, thanks for such a great rental.

week end en famille

Charming little house in a beautiful location . Everything was perfect for a discovery of Californian coast . The house is charming , very well designed , extremely comfortable , clean and causy ...which was great because the weather was not exceptional and we had to stay in-house more than we initially thought . The owner did care for every detail that we may need over a week end : such as candle , matchboxes , batteries , torch . This was extremely convenient and from my experience not common in this kind of rental arrangment . Beds are most comfortable and we slept very well. While the rental price was fair , what we found a bit high and exagerate were the cleaning charges that we had to pay at the end of the 3 days stay . These should be in my view more proportionnate to the number of people in the house and the time spent

Owner's Response: Hi Christine,

Thank you for your very kind review. We hope you will return when the weather is more cooperative.

We appreciate your comments about the cleaning charge, but please give us a moment to explain:

We do charge less for 1 to 5 people than we charge for 6 to 8 people. However, most of the requirements for our housekeepers do not depend on the length of stay. The housekeeping team (2 people) in not only responsible for thoroughly cleaning the house after each guest leaves, but they must also set up and prepare the house so that it appears exactly the same as the pictures on the internet. In addition, we send all the bed linens out to a commercial laundry. When all these costs are accounted for, our cleaning fee barely covers the expenses, which is our intention.

Thank you again for being our guest, and we hope you will return for a longer stay.

Best,

Earl and Brigitte

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, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, 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.

Other Activities: Whale, dolphin and sea otter watching.
