Spacious and Bright

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, home rental. The location was great, ½ block away from the water and 2 blocks from Lover's Point, an easy walk to downtown Pacific Grove, restaurants, market, etc. Upstairs, the kitchen, living room and dining room had modest views of Monterey Bay through big picture windows, very light and bright. The kitchen was spacious and well appointed. The dining room table sat 6 with lots of space. The gas fireplace in the living room was warm and added a nice ambiance. The whole home was very clean and comfortable. The owner was quickly responsive to any inquiries and eager to please. I'm sure we will be staying here again! Thank you.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time during our stay at this VRBO and the layout was perfect for our family. The ocean views from the living room, dining room, and kitchen were spectacular. We woke up every morning to views of the beautiful ocean. It was so close to the ocean and we took several walks along the shore. The bikes were a great addition. The majority of the time we cooked at the rental, which had everything we needed. The two passes to the Aquarium were definitely a bonus. We also had an amazing dinner at the Beach House the last night of our stay, which is just a short walk from the house.

The rental process was flawless and Hayley was very gracious when I called to make arrangements prior to our arrival regarding a UPS delivery (for Christmas). We will definitely be back and we've already booked this rental for Christmas 2015!

Great Little Getaway Home!

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a two night stay after Christmas. Hayley was very responsive to our questions during the entire rental process. The Pacific Grove location is ideal, and away from the Monterey Bay / Cannery Row congestion and crowds. The unit was spacious, comfortable, clean and uncluttered with quality furniture, beds, and electronics, with WIFI as well. This home is located on Mermaid Ave., a cute little alley which is a short 1/2 block from Ocean View on the water. The coastline here is magnificent! I saw two whales on my leisurely 20-30 minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, stopping along the way to enjoy the scenic coastline. The 2 free Aquarium passes was a great bonus. We will definitely stay here again and will highly recommend this home to our family and friends.

Relaxing retreat yet kid friendly home!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home exceeded our intial expectations. We have stayed in many vacation home throughout the years and I would rate this one as top 5. The home was very clean upon our arrival. The owner Hayley accommodated our request for an early check in at 2 - thank you again! Our baby was able to nap, the street is quiet and all the neighbors very friendly. The parking is small but can fit 3 small vehicles, we only had 2 so it was not problem for us. The bikes were a huge plus, we rented a child's trailer for one of the bikes and it attched wonderfully. We are thankful for the aquarium passes that were provided - this really cut down on our costs. Also cooking in saves us a lot! The kitchen is basic but has everything you could need to cook a meal in. The views were amazing from the kitchen. Just a look over a rooftop and there is the ocean! I never loved doing dishes more. The TV's in all the bedrooms was great for vacationing, I didn't think we would utilize all them but we did. Two kids in two separtate bedrooms, no arguments about what to watch. The fire place was nice, I wouldnt use it to heat the entire house but the heater did just fine at that. The bedroom downstais is a bit colder than the rest of the home but there is a portable heater that worked great. Bath tub downstairs was comfortable, shower upstairs was great, room for both of the kids to hose down after the beach - which is walking distance by the way. Very close. Big beach that is blocked from the wind. It took us 5 min to walk to, and thats slow because I have young children. There is a restaurant 2 min away that is great for lunch - Lovers point grill think it was called. All together, I would reccommend this home for a nice family get a way. It beats staying in a hotel and saves a lot of money. It is was clean, contemporary and the owners were lovely to work with. I will defintiely look this home up again when we return to the Monterey Area.

Great location--partial view and great eating area

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here with some of my coworkers and their spouses while we attended an Asilomar conference. We loved being able to walk along the beautiful beach coast from the house in the morning. The large dining area and living room proved to be a nice gathering spot. We felt that this was a very reasonably priced accommodation in a wonderful location. A few of the downsides: you can see through the glass window in the bathroom door (we tested this out a few times)--if you sat in a particular spot at the kitchen table you had a good view of someone in the bathroom--I enjoy my coworkers, but we like our privacy. It seems like it would be a pretty easy fix--curtain, etc. Also, some of the taller gentleman had difficulties with the low shower head. Other than that, it was great and I will likely rent it again with just family. I would not suggest it for people with disabilities.

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you so much for your review. This is the 2nd time people mentioned that bathroom - I keep telling people it is frosted glass so you can't see through BUT I definitley want everyone to be comfortable so a curtain will be installed asap! Thank you for letting me know about this. :-) We hope to have you stay at the Mermaid vacation home again.

Strange final interactions with hosts (or I wouldn't have written this review)

Strange final interactions with hosts (or I wouldn't have written this review)
  • 3 of 5
The place was fine, overall, though there were some quirks (burned out bulbs, in both bathrooms the soap and shampoo dispensers were empty, missing batteries in remote controls, things you had to figure out because the binder with info wasn't very clear but once you figured them out, they were all okay--like the washer and dryer look coin-operated but you get the coins back, that sort of thing.)
The ocean view was obstructed, as you can see from the kitchen picture. But Pacific Grove is charming, and it was a good location. We appreciated the aquarium passes.
Our first night, the heat didn't work (it was on some kind of a timer set to a very low temp and we couldn't change it.) The owners came by on Thanksgiving to address that, which made me think highly of them. Hayley was very pleasant on the phone.
But when it came time to get our security deposit, I e-mailed to inquire and was told that VRBO/Homeaway would be returning the money to me. I contacted Homeaway after a few days and got an e-mail back saying that they don't handle the deposits, and that they'd send the owner an urgent e-mail. That felt weird to me--why had I initially been told that Homeaway would do it? Then I got this curt e-mail from the owners:
"Your payment has been refunded, minus x. (Homeaway doesn't allow you to put amounts in reviews.) The deduction was made for the sheets in the upstairs bedroom next to the bathroom. I called you about this. There is a large grey stain about the size of a small child right in the middle of the bed. These were brand new sheets & the stain will not come out despite bleaching & professional services. I know you have contacted HomeAway for your deposit. Please note that I am not late refunding you. As stated, we refund 7 business days after departure."
They never called me about the sheets, and whose small child leaves a grey stain? WHAT???? My daughter slept in the bed twice, her pack-n-play for the other nights and naps. I believe I would have noticed a large grey stain shaped like her, as it would have been deeply concerning. She's not filthy, she didn't pee in the bed. And I'm supposed to believe they tried professional services to remove said stain? It all just seemed shady to me, so I thought I'd post it. I know a lot of other people have had good experiences with the owners and the place, but I feel like it's only fair to give our experience as well and people can evaluate things for themselves.

Owner's Response: I just received your review. This was by far our most awful review ever between all 4 of our rental homes! I am very shocked that you decided to publicly post these issues rather than addressing them with me first. Batteries- we have lots of extras & would have brought you more if I would have known. (sometimes kids of other guests "play" with remotes) I don't know unless the guests tell me. The soap dispensers were a new install were not ready yet so thats why we provided you w/ bar soap and travel shampoos/conditioners. This is the way we always did it before the dispensers. I am a MORE than fair person and would have been happy to discuss the sheets further with you. I did try to call you & I did leave you a message about it. I have a photo of the sheets, and like I said, they were brand new for your stay. Im sorry you do not know where the stain came from. Despite your doubts about where we do our linens... we use a professional laundry company for all our linens. Every time the home is turned over for guests the company launders the sheets. It is called Sudz laundry in PG & you can verify if you like. I would never say we had them professionally laundered & stain treated unless we did. I feel like you were more than harsh in your review & its so disappointing because reviews are what we rely on for future business. I was kind & accommodating - I responded to you in a reasonable time frame always. We came out to look at the heater on Thanksgiving day...& actually didnt do anything, it just had to be changed to the heat setting & off of cool. Just a switch. Now to address the deposit. To clear the confusion up... homeaway cannot initiate a refund. I personally initiate the refund 7 business days after the departure date. This should not have even been mentioned on the review because I always refund people on time as did I yours. You contacted homeaway just a couple days after your departure date & didnt ask me about it until after you took that step. And I have actually only taken partial deposits less than 10 times throughout the past years between all of our homes. This was something that could have been explained to you quickly & it would have made more sense. But now future guests will worry about their deposits and they need not to. I feel the review was unfair & would like to ask you to reconsider your review. I am also more than happy to discuss any of this further via email or by phone. I hope you and your family had a great holiday.
