GORGEOUS HISTORIC VICTORIAN HOME - THE PERFECT VACATION GETAWAY!

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 end of the 19th century while being completely updated with all 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!

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.

Forget 5 stars; the Lavender House and its wonderful hosts should get SIX stars. The house is so close to downtown that everything is within walking distance, yet Grove Street is quiet and private feeling. The house itself is in such pristine condition that you'll feel like you've entered House Beautiful. And the hosts have outfitted it with every imaginable luxury (ie - lovely bath products, any and all kitchen gear, pantry items, laundry, etc). On top of all this, the hosts are incredibly kind: we accidentally left behind a few personal items, and they mailed them to us "tout suite." The house comfortably accommodated five adults, and I will definitely rebook if we go back to Pacific Grove.

After staying at the Historic Lavender House why would I want to rent a room somewhere, when I can have the whole house for the same money. The house is cozy, comfortable and charming. There has been no detail left out. Everything you could possibly want or need is right there.
Walkable to Downtown and the Ocean.

Wow, what an amazing home! Curb appeal and well maintained! This is a hidden gem!

Outside paint and landscaping was very tastefully done. It seemed like a new house.

Inside there was everything anyone could possibly need. Kitchen had nice utensils and even had a supply of fresh spring water for drinking.

Comfortable chairs couch in Living Room with TV, stereo and WiFi hook up.

Rooms were very comfortable beds were all Sleep Number beds... Simply amazing! Each room had a flair all it's own that complimented the house's design and style.

My wife loves taking baths and the downstairs bathroom had a nice deep tub for her to soak in... All Victorian stand alone tub...

The location of this house is just off the Main St., where you can walk to and check out all the nice shops and restaurants... Or you could walk easily to the bay side of Monterey Bay and enjoy the gorgeous views all along the shore...

All in all this is a must place to stay, you will just live it!

Enjoy!

My family (including one four legged member) spent five days at the Lavender House this December, and we can't wait to return! The home is meticulously kept, and has all of the amenities, in a fantastic location near restaurants, shops, and the movie theater. We enjoyed beautiful weather and a very cosy place to call our home away from home. The home is wonderfully restored with period details and is located on a quiet alley near the sea and parks. We look forward to our next visit.
