Pacific Grove Studio Rental Photos and Description
1920's Beach Studio offers 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, with peaks of Monterey Bay
The most amazing part about this little place, is that it used to belong to John Steinbeck in the early 40's. He used it as his writing studio, where he worked on The Sea of Cortez. It has been renovated to pay homage to the period and history of the property. It has a masculine and sophisticated, yet romantic feel, with accents that speak to travel and hint at a woman's touch.
This darling little studio retreat has a bedroom with a sitting area, full bathroom, and a fully stocked kitchen . Guests will enjoy a private outdoor sitting area, beautiful views of the garden, peaks of the ocean, and walking accessibility to downtown Pacific Grove and Cannery Row, just a half-mile away.
The Writer's Studio is original 1920's architecture and has short doorways throughout the studio. Tall guests will need to mind their heads when passing through the rooms.
It is one of three cottages on the property. It sits behind the main house (called The Steinbeck Cottage) and next to The Traveler's Cottage. For larger groups, The Writer's Studio can be rented with The Steinbeck Cottage and/or The Traveler's Cottage on the same property.

About Kevin Delaney
I have lived in California for most of my life and have always loved the coast. It has been a dream of mine to own a little beach house someday. That dream became a reality in 2102 when I was fortunate enough to find this treasure of a property in the beautiful small beach town of Pacific Grove.
Kevin Delaney purchased this studio in 2012
Why Kevin Delaney chose Pacific Grove
This property is rich in character and history. The cottages on the property have a feel of days gone by, with thoughtful architectural touches and details that speak to the period. The tranquil garden brings about a sense of peace, and one can't help but feel relaxed in its presence. When you come away to the cottage, I hope that you are immersed in its serenity and charm.
What makes this studio unique
The historical aspect of the property was a huge draw for me as well. The cottages on the property are about 100 years old. I love that it was once owned by John Steinbeck, and often imagine him walking around this property, being inspired by its beauty and serenity. I am a huge Steinbeck fan!
When he was away from this home, staying in New York, he wrote to his friend who was living here at the time, 'It is a pleasant little house, and we miss it...You'll find you get a lot of thinking done in that house.' (from John Steinbeck, A Life in Letters).
