About The Owner

Adriana and I were born and raised in Holland and spent most of our life in Silicon Valley.

After Adriana bought a high end Boutique Shop in Pebble Beach in 1998, we decided to move to the Monterey Peninsula. One year later, we found this beautiful (5600 Square feet) home with an attached cottage in Pacific Grove. This house plus Cottage is situated on 4 parcels and is one of the largest private residential properties in P.G.

It offers a large Ocean View patio, beautiful garden and more privacy than any other vacation rental in Pacific Grove.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Delightful Studio

  • 5 of 5

It was a delightful stay. Property is beautifully maintained and manicured. The garden is absolutely gorgeous. Room is surprisingly spacious with full kitchen, bath, and walk in closet. Owners were very nice, helpful, and available to us as they live on the property as well. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying at this location again. The studio is secluded and approximately 100 yards from the ocean. The one picture that is advertised for this location does not serve it justice. Wonderful owners and a lovely room makes for an enjoyable and peaceful stay in Monterey/Pacific Grove. This is perfect for a couple that enjoys hanging out by the ocean most of the day. Thank You Jonathan & Adriana.

Charming studio/cottage with stunning view and setting

  • 5 of 5

The patio with views of the bay and what had to be the most amazing garden/landscaping I've ever seen would be tough to beat. The rental was very clean, and the main living area was really cool, with great views.

The kitchen is serviceable for snacks and small meal prep if you decide to grill outside (which we did). The bathroom is very small, but not something I would ding the ratings for since the setting and everything else was just so perfect. The hosts were fantastic. I'd absolutely recommend this property. Just awesome.

Sea lions steps from your door. The best morning views and walking path right on the edge. Great hosts.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This little gem of a rental is in the perfect location. The private cottage has an attached deck that overlooks the ocean. The backyard has a beautiful garden that we made sure to take several photos in for my style blog. While taking photos, the owner Adriana came out to chat with both my husband and I and took the time to invite us in to show us her hat designs and let me try them on. It was a lovely gesture that we bonded over as she explained that she once owned a hat shop in Carmel. The cottage has a fireplace that is run by a thermostat, a fully functional kitchen and a large walk-in closet (perfect for me who loves to overpack).

The location is perfect for those looking for an adventure. We took advantage of the free Monterey Aquarium passes they provided which is just a 10 minute drive away, took a drive to Big Sur ( about a 45 minute drive) and had lunch in Carmel which is about 20 minutes away. We would love to come back and stay again. Adriana and Jonathan were wonderful hosts.

Suggestions: Visit The Ice Cream Shoppe in Pacific Grove if you are a music lover.
