Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

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 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. 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.

Beautiful Home, great for groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 4 adults and 4 children aged 17-22. The house was able to accommodate our large group with room to spare. (And we never ran out of hot water!) Dan's home is beautiful and well appointed. It is conveniently located very close to the aquarium and 17 mile drive. We would highly recommend this home to others visiting Monterey.

Perfect location, beautiful home for a family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my entire family actually had a vacation together. We had the most memorable vacation in Monterey California. The house was perfect, comfortable and had everything you could want. It lacked nothing! We walked to the beach, shopped and just stayed at the house and enjoyed all the comforts of home..

We will go again!!! Thanks Dan!

Unique and Well Appointed Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Family and friends celebrated an intimate 40th birthday at Dan's beautiful home. The design of the home is unique in that there are many areas to congregate and levels to explore. All of the guests were very impressed at the consideration Dan gives to his guests. We were not in want of a thing. The kitchen is efficient with all the pots, pans, dishware, glasses, appliances, and coffee mugs you could ever need. All the beds were deemed comfortable and lush with the fluffy down comforters and soft sheets. The linen closet was stocked with towels for the hot tub and bath, extra bedding for the pull out couches, and additional pillows. The view at sunset from the roof top deck was spectacular. We also very much enjoyed the patio space for eating dinner and lunch as we were lucky to have perfect cool but sunny Pacific Grove weather. All the little touches made the guests feel welcomed and appreciated. We hope to be back soon. Thank you Dan!

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,
