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!

Charming, beautiful, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The cottage is situated among an an adorable array of historic properties, only 2 blocks from the most breathtaking views at Lover's Point. We have a 5 and 4 year old so the park accessible from the back of the property was a delight--the kids loved it and made some nice friends. The cottage had all of the essentials for a comfortable stay and Nena was very easy to work with--would definitely stay there again.

Great time at the cottage in Pacific Grove!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the cottage! It was larger than I thought it would be. Convenient location to water, beaches and shops. The only thing that was bothersome was that there are only 2 heat registers in the cottage - one in the hall and one in the living room. We needed to close the bedroom doors when the kids went to bed, which created chilly conditions in their bedrooms. But, extra blankets worked and overall it wasn't a big deal. Would love to come back and stay again - thanks for the great stay!

Clean, cozy, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying here. Very clean, well equipped, comfortable beds, pillows, linens and beautiful quilts. Great kitchen, clean and bright. We enjoyed sitting on the private patio in the evening, having a glass of wine, while we made our dinner plans. Our favorite places to eat were Red House Cafe, (a 3 minute walk at 19th and Lighthouse,) International Cuisine and Cafe Ariana for pizza on their patio. This lovely cottage is perfectly located. In a nice neighborhood, convenient parking in front of the house, an easy, quick walk to Lover's Point, which starts the 1 mile easy walk into Cannery Row. Hope to stay here again. Thank you, Nina for your attention to detail.

Awesome visit to Pacific Grove!

  • 5 of 5

just came back from a wonderful stay at this cottage. Beds comfortable, nice & clean and you can't beat the location. Short couple blocks to the park & ocean & easy 1 mile walk along scenic pedestrian trail to Monterey. Cottage had everything you need - only complaint (and not really a complaint) is that a gas grill would have been great - there is a charcoal one though. Can't wait to go back!!

Relaxing Comfortable Stay in Pacific Grove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated our stay in this well furnished and clean Victorian cottage in Pacific Grove. The cottage was well appointed and very convenient to all of the Monterey bay attractions. We enjoyed walking in to Pacific Grove and visiting the quaint shops and eateries. The beautiful path by the ocean was just a couple of blocks away, too. I'd definitely recommend a stay here to all my friends and relatives.
