About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2 -9)

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 3 queen sized beds and 1 double bed. The sleigh bed located in the "Champagne Bedroom" I purchased from South Africa. It is made out of red-jarrah wood. Its gorgeous! Each bed has four 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 and leisure 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.

Two of the bedrooms are conjoined and connected by a fabulous circular staircase. The two conjoined bedrooms are the dark blue loft bedroom with ocean views and the downstairs turquoise bedroom that opens up to the back deck with stone fireplace. The turquoise bedroom has a walk-in closet with all the amenities.

I've also had two new high-end leather queen sleeper sofas for the large upstairs entertainment room. 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 Pacific Grove

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.

Prompt, Prepared and in the Heart

  • 5 of 5

This place is charming. It has unique spaces and a great hot tub. It’s in a quiet neighborhood close to the cliffs in the picture but no view of the water. It’s always so nice to see hosts welcoming pets into their home, but our dogs wandered over to the friendly neighbors house to look for a grassy patch of yard to pee in:). The best service included the host mailing my vest back when I forgot it and he provided great instructions. We enjoyed our comfortable stay.

Pacific Grove

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Pacific Grove but a few comments I like to make about the dwelling, as a designer I felt the house is a poor design, inter connecting bedrooms, too few bathrooms etc. One other problem we had is after paying a cleaning fee we were requested to wash all towels before leaving, with check out time at 11am, this puts pressure to shower, have breakfast and cleanup, apart from the fact that the cleaners arrive as we were leaving at 11am. We were there to relax and enjoy our stay otherwise our cleaning fee should be returned

Owner's Response: I am really glad you had a great time at my home. I really aim to delight my guests in every way. Regarding the towels, I do not require that guests wash the towels, it is just a gentle request to help my cleaning crew especially if it is a large group and my guests are staying at the house for an extended period of time. I completely agree that you are there to relax and have a wonderful time. I agree the house has an unusual layout but many guests find that very charming. There are two bathrooms. I wish I had three but that is the best I can do.

This place is not bad but the photos definitely make it look much more spacious than it actually is. The way the space is partitioned into small rooms makes it feel cluttered and claustrophobic. You have to go thru one bedroom to get to the other or you can go thru the garage and then go to the upstairs living. Very confusing and dysfunctional floor plan. It appear that the strive to add more beds/bedrooms to make the house more marketable for larger groups triggered adding extra walls thus the partitioning of the space is very awkward . Something else to have in mind is that neighborhood is not walkable. There are no sidewalks and although it is only 1.5 miles from the beach getting there by foot is quite a hassle.

Owner's Response: My team and I really strive to delight and excite our guests in every way. As you can see we get lots of 5 star reviews. I agree that the house has an unusual floor plan, but it makes it fun to explore everything the house has to offer. I will agree there are no sidewalks on our street. The beach is .8 of a mile from the house and is walking distance if you enjoy a good walk. The house sits on top of a hill so it does take extra effort on the way back, but good exercise. The house is 2,200 SQ FT and lots of open living space in the back deck and in what I call the garden rooms. While I am disappointed by this review, I have to reflect on all the amazing reviews my team and I do get. I missed this one and I feel bad.

Beautiful Home, Great Location, Great for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I, 9 of us stayed here for 4 nights. This home is truly unique, and stocked with everything you need from linens to kitchenware. My group especially enjoyed the beautiful back yard and hot tub. We used Uber to go Cannery Row, Wine Tasting and the Beach in Carmel. Very inexpensive and short Uber rides and never had to wait more than 6-8 min for a car. We watched movies in the very comfortable Entertainment Room and enjoyed meals together in the dining area. Dan was very responsive to any questions we had and a pleasure to rent from. Overall a fabulous vacation and great memories made. Thank you Dan!!
