GORGEOUS HISTORIC VICTORIAN HOME - THE PERFECT VACATION HOME!

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.

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

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

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!

QUITE, QUAINT, AND COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5
We took my children (5 and 3 yrs old) and my parents to Monterey and stayed in this beautiful historic home. It was WONDERFUL!!! Our children loved the proximity to the park (less than one block), and it was very simple to get to the aquarium. We really appreciated the comfort and peaceful location, as it is not on a busy street. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

FIVE STARS+

The charm of this house is way beyond what the pictures show. Darling, super clean, well supplied, amazing location close to Lover's Point and downtown Pacific Grove. Linens, mattresses and towels were great quality. Owner was great to work with, as well. We'll definitely be planning to stay here again. Highly recommended.

WE LOVE LAVENDER

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house for our family of 4; 2 adults, 1 27 year old, 1 12 year old. The 3 bedrooms gave us all that opportunity to be together, but have some alone time too. The bedrooms are all upstairs, but even with not so good knees my wife was able to make the short climb to the second floor. The house, built in 1902, is a great mix of Victorian elegance and Modern convenience, and is located on one of the oldest streets in Pacific Grove. Within easy walking distance are some very nice restaurants, The Red House, Toasties, An Choi, Victorian Corner, and Favaloros. There are just too many great places to eat and not enough time. The hospitality of the owner was overwhelming; she made us feel right at home. We travel to this area often and will definitely try to stay here again. We had a great time in this home.

THE HISTORIC LAVENDER HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and myself along with our dog spent a heavenly stay at the Lavender House. Steps from the quaint downtown district and a couple of blocks to beautiful Lovers Point, this gorgeous 1902 historic house appears brand new inside and out. The owners have created a "five star" environment with every modern comfort. We will be returning soon.

WE LOVED THIS HOUSE AND LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time at this house. It is nicer than the photos, which was a pleasant surprise. It is so nicely and thoughtful put together and the owners provide really lovely "extras". The whole house is really well organized and the pots and pans, etc. in the kitchen are in exceptionally great shape for a rental house. Our kids absolutely adored the Victorian charm and are still talking about the "purple house." The location cannot be beat - walkable to the Ocean with Lovers Point Park, etc., and walkable to the main strip of Pacific Grove. And if you have kids, there is a lovely park around the corner. Finally, the owner returned our deposit the same day we checked out - now that is efficient service! 5 stars for sure. The only note I'd make is that the stairs to the loft are very steep so keep that in mind in considering who sleeps there - it's too steep for very young children or the elderly. Thank you Lavender House!

VISIT FROM THE UK

  • 5 of 5
We are very late uploading this review from a stay back in September 2013.
Having stayed on the East Coast at Cape Cod previously, this was our first visit to Monterey/Pacific Grove.

Lavender House was extremely well presented, clean, comfortable and had every amenity needed for a perfect stay. The location was excellent, 2 minutes walk from main street, and the neighbourhood quiet and well maintained.

The quality of finishings in the house were of a very high standard, loved the victorian bathroom fittings. Indeed if we were ever to buy our own home in the US this is exactly the kind of place we would look for.

Pacific Grove is beautiful and everyone we met very pleasant and welcoming. Carmel not so much !!

The house is very well located for trips to Laguna Seca if you are motorsports fans like us.

We would recommend this house to anyone, and have done so to friends here in the UK.

Thanks for the opportunity to use the house, it really made the holiday.
