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).

Couldn't ask for a better stay. Clean large space with special treats.

The wine and aquarium pass was an added bonus. Close to beach with a wonderfull long stretch of beach for walks or driving. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

A BIG 5 STARS FOR THIS ONE!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at Sea Foam Cottage. The location is perfect - just a short stroll to Lovers Point and the restaurants, bakeries and shops of Pacific Grove. We took long, glorious walks along Monterey Bay every day and evening. The Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row are only a mile from the cottage. Monterey and Carmel are short drives from the cottage. Big Sur is an easy day trip. San Francisco would be a longer day trip, but doable. We'll check that out on our next visit.

Sea Foam Cottage is adorable! It's beach decor is charming and inviting. It was clean and fully-equipped, and everything was in good working order. It was the perfect size for the two of us. Parking on the street directly in front of the cottage was always available.

Jill and Alan were great to work with. They were quick to respond to all questions throughout the rental process.

We will definitely return!

Another delightful visit

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had again this November. The cottage is so perfect. Every morning a nice little stroll down to watch the waves on Lover’s point. Took the lighthouse self guiding tour again and watched the sunset. Lunch outside at the Paris Bakery in Monterey. The dinner special looking out at the ocean at the Beach House at Lover’s Point. The chocolate croissants, and everything else we brought home for our breakfasts in the cottage; Pavel’s Bakery is a nice morning walk, but this visit we cheated and drove. What a lovely time we had. Oh, and the aquarium passes. In November there are so many fewer visitors; for an old timer visiting those amazing jellies and everything else we love at that fascinating place the November quiet was a delight. We did none of our usual running down to Point Lobos and Carmel, as much fun as they are, we just had a leisurely, restful three nights. It could not have been more perfect, except that I’m now having to admit to being a year older, but birthdays happen even without such a nice visit.

Cute and comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved both the location and all of the amenities of the Sweet Seafoam COttage! It was just as the photos showed! The location is ideal-- just steps from Lover's Point. A great location also for walking into Pacific Grove. (We recommend you try Passion Fish for an excellent dinner!) We felt very safe and found the area very quiet. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed was comfortable and we loved our mornings and evenings in the sunroom/porch. Jill was great with communication and there was no problem with access. We enjoyed the complimentary passes to the fabulous Monterey Aquarium! We hope to return and enjoy more time in this delightful place and area!

Owner's Response: Passion Fish is one of our favorite restaurants, too. It is within walking distance and so nice in the evening to stroll home listening to the waves. Please come again. Thank you for taking time to write a review!
