JOHN STEINBECK'S WRITER'S STUDIO

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

We have lived in California our whole lives and have always loved the coast. It has been a dream of ours to own a little beach house someday. That dream became a reality in 2102 when we were 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 we come away to the cottage, we are immersed in its serenity, we hope you will be too.

What makes this studio unique

The historical aspect of the property was a huge draw for us as well. The main house on the property is 100 years old this year. We love that it was once owned by John Steinbeck, and often imagine him walking around this property, being inspired by its beauty and serenity. 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)

We spent 3 days in the studio during our honeymoon and it surpassed all of our expectations. It was beautifully decorated, and the attention to detail was amazing, with lots of quirky touches to make us feel right at home.

The location of the studio was fantastic, with everything we wanted to see right at the bottom of the road. Leaving was a real wrench. We do hope we'll be able to return in the future.

Perfect Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Steinbeck's Writers Studio. As a designer and builder I have a bit of a critical eye with such things. This cottage was very tastefully redesigned down to every little detail. The amenities and finishes were so carefully chosen that you can experience the quaint vintage feel that the property provides, but still enjoy the modern conveniences one would expect. Everything was immaculate! The location was so much better than we expected - walking distance to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Check in and check out was simple and Kevin was just a text away if we needed anything. We can't wait to come back and stay longer!

Lovely Studio

  • 5 of 5
The Writer's Studio was just perfect for us. It was comfortable and well equipped. We loved having our meals in the garden, watching the squirrels race on the massive tree branches. The decor was warm and welcoming...thank you so much!

Wonderful, cozy, easy walk to town

  • 5 of 5
Really wonderful and cozy place. It was as cute and comfortable as the pictures and its description. I spent time just sitting in bed staring out the gorgeous bay windows reading. Really relaxing.

Nice walk into town, maybe ten minutes, right to cannery row. Studio is up a little hill, so you can a beautiful view of the bay on the walk down into town. Central located to everything by car: Downtown Monterey and Pacific Grove.

Cute little kitchen with coffee and a french press ready to go. Instructions where crystal clear. Looking forward to staying longer next time.
