Leave your cares at the door. The cottage offers tranquility that will restore your spirits. We offer coffee, tea, water, and a complimentary bottle of wine to help you settle in as well as paper products and all linens and kitchen equipment.

Walk 1 block to the beach-side grill with clam chowder in sour dough bowls with spectacular views of the cove and the open sea beyond. Walk 3 blocks to LIghthouse Avenue where a myriad of restaurants and cafes await you along with little shops for browsing and boutiques with stylish clothes. Enjoy a spa treatment 2 blocks away at Amara Spa or have a manicure on Lighthouse Ave. See a movie at our theater on Lighthouse Ave. Walk l mile to the Tin Cannery (outlets), the Aquarium, and Cannery Row which offer shopping, dining and exhibits.

About Jill

I am a native of California and love the central and southern coasts. I love sharing our cottage with our wonderful guests.

Jill purchased this cottage in 1985

Why Jill chose Pacific Grove

I vacationed in Pacific Grove as a girl with my family. My husband learned Russian at the DLI. We loved the area and it kept calling to us.

What makes this cottage unique

The closeness of the water's edge and the friendliness of the residents make this an exceptional place to vacation and relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sea foam Cottage is an oasis of light and air and a love of detail. The 4 of us loved it and could not possibly had a better visit. We adored the cottage, the way it looked and smelled and offered a home away from home. Your artistic flare is evident everywhere, Jill. We all home that you let us visit again next year in Sea Foam and Snug Harbor (106 1/2).

Everything We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 nights in this lovely cottage. It's well situated for walking to downtown PG with its shops and restaurants or to the coastal trail and Lover's Point. It was a rainy weekend but we still enjoyed our visit. The bed is on the firm side but not rock hard, something to keep in mind if you prefer a softer mattress. The kitchen is well equipped and the neighborhood is very quiet. We always love visiting PG and would definitely stay here again.

Pacific Grove Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little house, a living room, bedroom and kitchen. The house had everything you need. The location was so convenient, we walked to the beach (which we could see from the front of the house)and restaurants. I would recommend staying at Seafoam cottage, the owner Jill was very responsive to all my questions.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. One of our guests' favorite spots is in the sunroom where you can sit at the counter and see the water at the Lovers Point cove. Please return to our coast soon.

Wonderful cottage in a great location. Walked to dinner every night, less than a block from the beach, and very close to golf courses. Unbelievably clean, wonderful decor, quaint and classy, not cluttered. Cannot wait to go back.

This little place was just great! So close to the ocean and also quite close to all of the quaint shops and good local restaurants of Pacific Grove and the tourist attractions of Monterey. Just a perfect location and to be able to sit out on the enclosed patio front room and look at the ocean and watch the sunrise on the ocean was incredible. I wish I could attach pictures! But besides all of that good stuff, there were three other real nice perks. This place was clean. My wife is a total neat freak and kept on commenting on how clean this cottage was on every level. Also two passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium were included - a must-see for the area and a $100 value. And Jill the host was so efficient and considerate. As an example, we checked out on Friday morning and I had my full refund check in my mailbox on Monday. Unbelievable! Thank you for a great stay from A to Z Jill!!
