Overview

Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths

No need to fight over who gets the ocean view in this fabulous 6-bedroom, 4-bath home on a private, rocky beach! With 270 degrees of blue-water views, four of the bedrooms have full views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay. The fifth and sixth bedrooms have a quiet, courtyard view just in case somebody doesn't like to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, or watch the moon sinking into the sea at night.

We are minutes from Carmel and Cannery Row in Monterey, and Pebble Beach is our neighbor.

We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen - and the cook gets an ocean view, too. Dining table seats 10, 14 with extension. Foosball, pinball, ping pong, Legos, art and drawing supplies, puzzles, games and other toys (including mini pool and 'air hockey') for the kids. Steinway grand piano for the musically inclined. Off-street parking for five cars is available.

The Spanish Bay Club is a lovely 20-minute walk (3-minute drive) away, along the world-famous Pacific Grove recreation trail. Guest club privileges for tennis, exercise and weight room, heated pool, sauna, steam, massage, and hot tub are available. Surf, snorkel, or comb the beautiful beaches and coves. Make S'mores at a bonfire on our secluded beach.

Nice restaurants just two blocks away. Fabulous Pacific Grove golf course is across the street. Downtown Pacific Grove is 1.5 miles away, with movie theater, farmers' market, restaurants, coffee houses, antiques, shops, bakeries and natural history museum. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and the American Tin Cannery outlets are about 2 miles away, as is Monterey's Fishermen's Wharf. Wine tasting in Carmel Valley is 30 minutes away. Big Sur is about 45 minutes away. John Steinbeck Museum is about 35 minutes away. Our home is perfect for your family reunion, corporate retreat, girls' vacation, intimate wedding or romantic hideaway!

About Kirstie

My family has been blessed to spend 24 years in one of only two beachfront homes in Pacific Grove. You will love staying here, too!

Kirstie purchased this house in 1989

Why Kirstie chose Pacific Grove

We bought our home because it was the only home directly on the beach in all of Pacific Grove. It was extremely private, with a golf course across the street, State Park surrounding us, and the blue Pacific as our backyard. We have a full acre of private property. Another residence has since been built next door, on its own acre of land. A portion of our stone driveway is shared by both homes.

What makes this house unique

I love to look out my window and see the full moon casting sparkling light onto the dark waves as it sinks to the horizon. On clear evenings, the sunsets are spectacular. The morning sun casts a pink glow on the waves. And when it is foggy, there is a magic about the property that is enhanced with a roaring wood blaze in the fireplace, or a glass of wine in the hot tub.

Private, Peaceful, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot begin to describe the awesome weekend we spent at Kirstie's home. Four siblings rented this coastal gem in honor of our parent's 80 and 85th birthdays. We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot or weekend. We enjoyed the spectacular coastal view, including spouting whales, both from the spacious great room and the outdoor sitting area. We took advantage of the well stocked kitchen and ate all of our meals at "home". We played cards, had pinball tournaments, walked the ocean trail, treasured our family time. We didn't take advantage of several amenities - the grand piano, the hot tub, incredible music system, tv - we will save those for next time. Kirstie is a welcoming and gracious hostess. She gave us a thorough tour and made herself available should we have additional questions. Our family weekend was one of faith, fellowship and fun.

Perfection by the sea

  • 5 of 5

There is no way that a review can do this wonderful home justice, but I'll try: Perfect. It was Perfect. We rented Kirstie's house for a family gathering to celebrate my husband's birthday. The setting, the house - so much space, beautiful, well maintained, full of all sorts of comforts, conveniences and pleasures. Kirstie is a pleasure to deal with - professional and yet makes you feel like you're a friend coming for a visit. The view is beyond belief; we even had a full moon visible over the ocean. Each morning it was hard to decide whether to drink our coffee indoors with the perfect view, or just outside on the back patio, or on the adirondacks placed thoughtfully partway down the path to the shore. We slept 8 people, ages 13-70, and there was room to spare. We ate dinner in each evening so as not to miss the sunset. We watched otters, saw whales spouting, went tide pooling nearby, used Kirstie's Monterey Aquarium passes, and the true test - nobody ever turned on the TV! We'll be back to this bit of heaven on earth.

Was like a magnificent dream!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this lovely home was like a dream come true. There is no other home in the area that holds the magnificent views, the exceptional privacy and is a unique and beautiful place.

We enjoyed the connection to nature right outside the windows and the evenings in the hot tub watching the sun set! Kirstie is always cresting new wonderful experiences for her guests. I can't wait to go back!

All We Could Ask For and Then Some

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from this piece of heaven on the coast. We planned a family reunion with ages of participants from 2-86. Kirstie's house has something for all ages: very comfortable beds, games galore, a fort, movies, gorgeous views from anywhere in the house, a kitchen with everything, very comfortable couches, 4 bathrooms, a game room. We slept 11 adults and three kids very easily with ample room for all. I don't want to tell everything she has because there are many surprises awaiting you and too much to list.

Just prepare yourselves for a home located on a private, rocky beach close to shopping, all the sights the Monterey area has to offer and view, views, views! Mom is 86 and loved sitting and watching the everchanging sights from the living room and also the beautiful master bedroom upstairs. You will not be disappointed and you will be asked "How did you find this place"?

Owner's Response: Micki, Bill, Marjorie and their clan were so friendly and happy... and their children were well behaved and respectful. They were a very large group but seemed like a small one, and left my home in very good shape. I was happy they enjoyed the complimentary passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and happier still that they have already asked to book a week in summer, 2015. Thanks!

Ocean Nirvana

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing better than vacationing in and around the Monterey Peninsula. And we hit the jackpot with this beautiful home in Pacific Grove. Oceanfront with views like no other. Views of the crashing waves, otters and whale watching right from the living room. The weather was perfect. Every morning I would go for my walk along the trails, it was heaven. The home is an easy walk to the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row. My husband played golf every morning at either Pacific Grove Muni or Spanish Bay both less then a hop, skip and a jump from the home. Kirstie was such a gracious host. We have found our perfect vacation home on the coast. See you next year!

Our Stay at Rocky Shores

  • 5 of 5

WE love Pacific Grove. We have passed this home many times and would often wish we could stay in it. Well, our dream came true!! We spent our annual family vacation there and were SO pleased with everything. The hone is lovely and is so well supplied. The piano was such a nice extra. The views are out of this world !!!! Needless to say we all hated to leave. This home would definitely rank as one of our best.

Kirstie is great...SO accomadating. How nice of her to return all the "forgotten" items.

Her champagne welcome was appreciated.

We all gave it a 5 Star rating !!!

Owner's Response: Lee and her whole family were lovely guests and I would welcome them back anytime. And about the lost and found items: I am always happy to send things that are left behind, and in this case... there was the added bonus that they got to RAZZ the family members who left their stuff behind!
