Central Coast California House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2 -13)

Just added a 4th bedroom which now includes a gorgeous hand carved bed from India made out of an antique hand carved door as the foot board. Just completed more amazing upgrades to the house. Imagine a roaring fire in a gorgeous outdoor stone fireplace, listening to your favorite music on the outdoor sound system or brand new portable, wireless, bluetooth BeatBox Speaker By Dr. Dre., grilling your favorite food, having a glass of wine, and visiting with your family or friends. That is what you get when you stay at my fabulous home in gorgeous Pacific Grove.

Now offering two free Monterey Aquarium Guest Passes. Enjoy. Plus my house was designed by the architect who designed the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

This home gets excellent reviews. I am continually improving your experience. This is a top rated home in PG. Read the reviews for yourself. I aim to surpass your expectations!

There are 2 queen-sized sleigh beds and 1 double bed. The second queen-sized sleigh bed I just purchased from South Africa made out of red-jarrah wood. Its gorgeous! Each bed has down pillows, down comforters, cotton blankets, and high end linens from Italy. The beds are super comfortable and many that have stayed at my home say that it was 'the best night sleep I've ever had'. I know from traveling extensively on business how important a great bed is and a good night sleep. I stay at my house often and desire luxury and comfort. I want my guests to experience that same wonderful feeling as well.

I've also had two new high-end leather queen sleeper sofas for the large upstairs entertainment room that will be installed by February 20, 2016. So now the how will sleep up to 17 people (8 in the bedrooms, 4 on the sleeper sofas, 4 on the air mattresses, and one in the breakfast nook). I have added several down comforters and down pillows for extras to be very comfortable.

There is a high-end spa with ipod docking station, waterfalls, powerful jets, and huge (seats 8). You will love it. Plus a view of the gardens and the ocean.

The back deck includes a large gas WEBER grill to accompany the amazing outdoor stone fireplace to create the perfect evening outside.

The BeatBox Speaker By Dr. Dre can be used with your IPOD, IPhone, Android Phone, IPAD, MP3 player, or any portable, mobile device. The BeatBox is the top of the portable speaker system. You will love the sound quality. I am all about hitting the five senses, to have the best, memorable experience while at my home.

My home is amazing so email or call me (408-206-7625) and experience it. It books quickly so please let me know right away if interested. Cell phone or email are good ways to reach me. I will get back to you promptly.

You will love this house. Wake up to ocean view. You can hear ocean wave activity off in the distance. Take relaxing walks by the beach. The house is walking distance to the beach (.8 of a mile), walking trails, a wonderful French Bakery, Trader Joe's, and other wonderful restaurants. The house was previously owned and remodeled by a Monterey Bay Aquarium renowned architect.

Escape to a relaxing retreat furnished with cushy leather furniture, Tiffany lighting, warm wood furnishings, fine art, hardwood floors and open beams, outdoor large stone fireplace, all in a vibrant 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 2200 square foot, Pacific Grove home away from home! 2 Queen and 1 Full Sized Luxury Beds with down comforters and pillows. For larger groups I do have two queen sized aero beds (top of the line and blow up in minutes) that fit comfortably in the ocean view entertainment room with home theater and roof top ocean view deck. The ET room also has its own bathroom with heated floors. I've just added a new 70' flat screen TV in the Entertainment Room. Numerous windows look out into the treetops and the Pacific Ocean in the distance. The intimate yard with fountains (from the Filoli Mansion), succulents, and ornamental plants enclose the patio with Adirondack chairs.

A roof top deck with teak furniture overlooks the ocean for a wonderful setting for afternoon cocktails/romantic dinner. Settle into the inviting living room with over 700 CDs/DVD movies or bring your own to use on the fabulous music system provided. Includes IPOD connection to the house sound system. Enjoy a warm fire in the fireplace, play the beautiful grand piano located in the living room, or take a walk up the glass block-encircled staircase to entertain your guests in the spacious entertainment room that includes TV with DVD/VCR , Stereo , wireless internet access, and a view of the ocean!

The high-end, gourmet kitchen is equipped with more dinnerware, crystal glassware, cutlery (Wusthof knives), and copper cookware than you could possibly use, and features stainless steel appliances including microwave, brand new Maytag STEAM dishwasher, Corian countertop, solid cherry wood cabinetry, full-sized refrigerator/freezer, and Viking range with gas oven (4 burners with large grill). The endless cookbook collection will inspire your inner chef!

The home is fully furnished and equipped with cookware, dinnerware, and kitchen linens. The home is beautifully lit with high-end lighting in the kitchen, hallways, bathrooms, and over artwork. Beds have mattress pads, beautiful linens, down pillows and pillow cases, blankets and bed spreads or down comforters. There are several sets of bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. There is a blow dryer available in the linen walk-in closet.

The back deck area includes a new stunning natural stone wall with seating area and large stone fireplace and amazing outdoor lighting (7 different lighting systems all on dimmers to create the perfect setting). There is a brand new large stainless steel Weber Genesis 330 Gas Grill. The hand carved french doors that lead into the back deck were purchased from an old Pebble Beach mansion located next to the famous 'Lone Cypress Tree'. It is a great place to have an outdoor dinner party or cocktail party or just enjoy a beverage by the fire. It's gorgeous.

There is a conveniently located enclosed patio for your pets to safely play. The house also has a sizeable doggy door for pet access. Just down the street is a wonderful dog walk called the 'Congress Avenue Dog Walk' where locals bring their dogs for afternoon walks. A true delight for dog lovers.

April and May are wonderful months to be in Pacific Grove. Beautiful sunny weather. It's the true summer time of Pacific Grove. November ,December and January is a great time to visit this area. Great wave activity by the ocean and clear crisp weather for great beach walks along Pacific Grove/Monterey Bay.

Please note I have special rates for peak period like July 4th, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and special events on the Monterey Coast. Just ask.

About Dan Reighn

I have owned my vacation home in PG since 1997. It is my dream home and I hope to retire there one day. Until then, I love to let others enjoy the magic of being in PG and staying at my home. I am to delight and excite my guests and exceed their expectations. I am super responsive to emails and phone calls.

Dan Reighn purchased this house in 1997

Why Dan Reighn chose Central Coast California

This was my dream home and dream place to live. It is still magical today. It is near the beach, great restaurants, near Trader Joe's, near all the great golf courses in the world. I continue to improve, upgrade the home as I stay there often and having stayed at the best hotels in the world, I know what works and what doesn't. If I wasn't selling software to the produce industry, I would be a landscape/interior designer. I love color. I love beautiful surroundings and I want you to be delighted by the home in every way.

What makes this house unique

Jacuzzi, Outdoor Stone Fireplace, Gourmet Kitchen, Ocean Views from Every Room in the House, Luxury Linens (Sferra, Anichini, and Frette), Gorgeous Antiques, Fabulous sound system piped throughout the house.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were recently celebrating our daughter's 50th birthday. There were 5 adults and 2 teens. Sad for us as it rained most of the weekend we chose to rent the house! This however, did not dampen our spirits, the house saved us. The only time we left was to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium and to purchase food at local stores. We ate with pleasure, due to the wonderful kitchen provided. Everything you need to cook a meal was there, pots, pans, dishes, serving pieces, utensils etc. One night, when the rain let up, we grilled and ate on the patio next to a roaring fireplace. The patio lights were spectacular, making the evening delightful. Then we all hit the Jacuzzi to mellow out some more.

Our daughter, the birthday girl, loves the piano and played it several times. It was a pleasure to sit on thee comfy couches, curl up with a blankets and a nice glass of wine and enjoy. The teens were glued to the huge TV in the

entertainment area upstairs and only came down for food. The view from there was awesome. You can see the ocean and many birds (binoculars provided). I even caught some sun rays for about 10 minutes while out on the upper deck. the landscaping on the property was beyond beautiful.

Our weekend getaway was special. Good wine, good food and great conversation with our family. Dan really cares about your comfort and makes every effort to make it perfect. You can see the care and love that has gone into this home. Don't hesitate to rent this house.

A Well-Loved Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of fun in the hot tub, cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, and sharing meals under the Tiffany lamp and outside on the patio. Dan helped us figure out the grill and how to extend the dining table. We used the Aquarium passes (Thank you!) and the house is very convenient to the beach, Asilomar, and the butterfly sanctuary. We just had a great weekend and staying in this clean, comfortable, well-loved home, while not as roomy as we expected, was a large part of our enjoyment. We'll be back!

Thank you,

Weekend getaway success!

  • 5 of 5

Dan is incredibly helpful and very nice! He responded quickly to my first inquiry and provided detailed information about his home and the many amenities offered. His house is nicely decorated and you can tell a lot of thought and love has gone into each room. My group and I stayed for a short weekend to celebrate a birthday and we wish we could have stayed longer. Everyone loved the entertainment room upstairs and we fully utilized the indoor and outdoor sound system. We also used his aquarium passes! The jacuzzi was calming and relaxing and the perfect way to end our celebratory get away. There were 13 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. I loves cooking with the Viking stove and using the awesome heat lamp! The house is very close to grocery stores and only a short distance away from cannery row.

Dan goes above and beyond when accommodating his guests which really makes the stay and the house even that much more enjoyable! I would definitely recommend staying here!

Finally able to exhale

  • 5 of 5

My family and I showed up for a 4 day mini vacation and left wishing we had more time to stick around. We had 2 teens who took over the entertainment room, they loved it. Everyone enjoyed the Jacuzzi, the kids were in it when they weren't upstairs. We had steaks from the bbq and night fires with a glass of wine. The patio was cozy and private, and the sound system at the house was everywhere. Totally awesome. Dan is a great homeowner and truly loves his home. He has filled it with perfect extra touches like the Viking stove, sound system, 70" tv, Jacuzzi, water fountain. There is even a fenced in yard for your dog, The next time I need a getaway I will be calling Dan for sure!

Special house in a great locale

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great house in a beautiful locale. My friends (5 people total) and I were only here for one day and the place was so great that we never left. We spent the night hanging in the jacuzzi and using the awesome kitchen. There was a ton of space for all of us. This is one of those unique rentals that makes vacation rentals special. Thanks!

Robin from California

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just love this vacation home. We've stayed here 2 times and both times were very memorable. This home has everything you need for a great vacation get away. From the upstairs media room, to the large bubbly spa and beautiful outdoor fireplace. We barbequed, toasted marshmallows and listened to music while enjoying ourselves during the evenings with the beautiful, soft outdoor lighting to set the mood. The wonderful window seat at the front of the home offers a panoramic view while relaxing and enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. Several mornings we were privileged to watch a bushy red tailed squirrel pass back and forth across the wires and through the trees at the front of the home. On another occasion I found myself eye to eye with a mother deer and her fawn at the back of the home. Just another day in Pacific Grove. This home is spacious and clean. The beds are so comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you could want to prepare a gourmet meal. The owner, Dan Reighn, is very quick to respond if you have any questions. He's polite and willing to help in any way he can. I highly recommend this home for a wonderful vacation retreat.
