Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedroom (Four Beds), Two Bath Home for Up to Six Guests (5 adults max)

This beautiful three story, recently remodeled Victorian home (originally built in 1902) transports you back to the 19th century while providing all the amenities and comforts of the 21st.

The Historic Lavender House is centrally located on a quiet, peaceful street in Pacific Grove's historic retreat district. Downtown Pacific Grove’s finest restaurants and shops are located just down the street. Monterey Bay’s world famous Aquarium and Lover’s Point are a brief stroll away. For the kids there is the family-friendly Caledonia Park right around the corner.

Lover's Point and the newly renovated Beach House restaurant is just a short stroll away. The Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links and the Point Pinos Lighthouse are located immediately to the north, the Asilomar Conference Grounds and State Beach are found just as easily to the west, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, and Fisherman’s Wharf are located one-half mile to the south. 17 Mile Drive and Pebble Beach are just around the corner, Monterey’s historic downtown district, Carmel’s world-famous shopping, and the Pebble Beach golf links are all within a few minutes drive. Carmel Valley, Point Lobos State Reserve, and Big Sur are all an easy drive south, providing your friends and family with stunning vistas along California’s most beautiful coastal highway.

The Historic Lavender House accommodates up to 6 guests (5 adults maximum) and has three bedrooms offering high quality 'Sleep Number' beds. The two primary bedrooms each offer queen beds and the loft bedroom provides one twin day bed and one trundle bed. The second floor deck opens out to soothing views of Pacific Grove and Monterey Bay. The third floor loft bedroom offers even grander vistas of the surrounding area.

The living room includes a High Definition Flat Panel TV, Tivo DVR, Netflix, Pandora, and a Blu-Ray player (along with a library of movies for your viewing). Wireless high-speed Internet access is available throughout, and the kitchen is fully stocked and outfitted with modern appliances, cooking utensils, plates, glasses and silverware. A high-capacity washer and dryer is available for your use, as is the attached single car garage.

You are likely to see deer passing by your front porch in the early morning hours or catch a glimpse of seals and otters during your stroll to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Walk, run, or bicycle along the coastal bike trail as you make your way to Cannery Row or downtown historic Monterey. Championship golf, whale-watching, hiking, biking, wine-tasting, shopping, dining, kayaking, first-class spas, breath-taking nature… it’s all here waiting for you!

Step back to a slower time. Combine the comforts of the present while experiencing the past by staying at the Historic Lavender House, the most beautiful little Victorian in Pacific Grove.

About Terry Winston

Here we are in front of our Victorian Home Christmas 2012!

We love Pacific Grove, the Monterey Bay area, and the beauty of Victorian Homes and want to provide our guests a relaxing and happy experience in the area we love so much.

Terry Winston purchased this house in 2012

Why Terry Winston chose Pacific Grove

The Historic Lavender House is a charming and comfortable Victorian very close to downtown Pacific Grove and surrounding attractions.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on the sunny front porch, or take a short stroll downtown to the local bookstores and coffee shops! We recommend dinner at the Red House Cafe, Jennine's, or Passion Fish; lunch at the Beach House (Lover's Point), Red House Cafe, or Pacific Thai; and breakfast at Toastie's... all within two short blocks from the Historic Lavender House!

Great house in great location with great attention to details

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for 4 adults and two kids! I was most impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was, not just high quality pots and pans, but spices! I am an avid home chef and found this kitchen easy to have fun in preparing meals. Greal location right next to Caledonia Park and downtown PG (we walked everywhere all weekend). We had a great weekend and would stay at this house again!

Terrrific Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was wonderful. My wife and mother-in-law loved the Victorian charm. Very well appointed. Unfortunately no cable (but great Netflix) so I couldn't watch my Packers play.. But really if you are in this area you should be outside enjoying the amazing views just a short walk away. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to explore the area

Charming Historical Home

  • 5 of 5
We just spent the weekend at the Lavender House and what a relaxing and charming experience! All aspects of the remodeled historical house respects the fascination of a Victorian but includes modern conveniences. Attention to detail, choice of toiletries, and an eye for what a traveler may need all added to the stay. And bonus, it is within walking distance to sites and restaurants of PG and Cannery Row. We loved it and would stay there again.

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family had a memorable, thoroughly relaxing weekend in Pacific Grove. And 100% of what made the weekend special was the Lavender House. The home was beautifully appointed with everything you'll need. I enjoyed sitting out on the upstairs balcony and the porch breathing in the fresh ocean air. My wife loved the comfy Sleep Number beds. And my parents loved the peaceful quiet of the house and neighborhood.

Then there's the activities. We were a short 4 block walk from Lovers Point for beach fun. Literally steps from some of the best restaurants in the highly-touted Pacific Grove foodie scene (no snootiness I will add). And the Monterey Bay Aquarium was just a nice 20 minute walk.

The Lavender House is a gem. We'll be back again soon!

Like lavender

  • 5 of 5
Lovely townhouse down a small alley. Not far from downtown, the park and the farmers market. Three stories and the last story is a super attic with twin beds that the kids loved. Decorated with style and well equipped. It is a good thing that there was directions for the tv or we would have never figured it out. Only negative was the small parking space and the garbage men who arrived at 6:00 on Monday and Tuesday. Had great weather and a good time.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this nice review from our thoughtful guest but we did want to correct any possible mis-perceptions. The Historic Lavender House is a stand-alone three story Victorian home (built in 1902) and is not a townhouse. The third story is actually a loft bedroom with an open floor plan, not an enclosed attic. Kids love this arrangement and it allows the parents to keep an eye on them when it is occupied. The home is located on one of the oldest bi-directional streets in Pacific Grove's historic district. Some folks from larger cities might consider them alleys but, in fact, they are very quiet, little traveled streets that were created when there were few cars and most residents walked or rode horses. The home also features an attached garage (which is somewhat rare in homes of this era) and driveway, which together usually provide sufficient parking for all but the largest vehicles.
