Guestbook comments from the owner

I was in San Jose on business and decided to take a couple of extra days to visit the Monterey Bay area with my mother who was travelling with me. We found Nina's place and it was right up our alley! If you love old houses, architecture and/or history, this charming, three-bedroom in the historic Pacific Grove area will delight you. The cottage has hardwood floors, historical pictures grace the walls, and it's clean and inviting. The kitchen is HUGE and has a wonderful little garden off of it in the back. There's even a park across the street. We also liked that it's centrally located - a short drive and you're in Carmel-by-the-Sea or Monterey. And Nina's recommendations for dining choices were just what we were looking for. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area - lots of serendipities and memories to be made!

A tidy, efficient and surprisingly spacious cottage in a dream location

  • 5 of 5

Our review title pretty much sums it up. This cottage felt like a second home over our 3-day stay. And a block away is one of the most enchanting spots anywhere in any city along the California coastline -- Lovers' Point.

Well-appointed cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable three night stay for family of four with 2 adult children. We loved that it is walking distance to ocean, aquarium, shops, grocery, and a great bakery. Darling cottage, very clean and well-maintained with furniture that fits the small spaces (and Victorian era home) but is comfortable for lounging. Kitchen has everything needed for simple meals. Hosts provided all necessary information, responded quickly to all inquiries, and let us change our dates at the last minute. Beautiful walks at the ocean. Top shelf!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving week in this charming little house up the street from Lover's Point Beach and the Monterey Bicycle Trail. We loved the charm and history this cozy cottage had to offer, which is a prerequisite for us and made our trip to Pacific Grove all the more genuine. We enjoyed the beautiful weather during our daily walks around the neighborhood, beach and trails- admiring the gardens, wildlife and stunning ocean vistas. The nearby little shops and cafes were just icing on the cake! We will definitely be back in the future!!

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house for 3 nights. The boys loved the property as there was a public park right behind the house. House is close to everything. Quite old and dated but functional. Really old... so if you're "picky" this might no be the right place for you.

Thank you for the wine and courtesy! We loved the neighborhood!

Comfortable House for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was available - we were pleasantly surprised to find a high chair in the kitchen even. The park behind the house was great. We'd definitely stay here again.
