Central Coast California Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Ocean View Studio Retreat (Sleeps 2-3)

This Little Paradise is the best kept secret in Pacific Grove.- Last review, before remodel was completed, calls it: 'As close to perfection allowed'.

Ideal resort for honeymooners or couples who are looking for an anniversary getaway.

Last remodel includes an upgraded Studio with King Bed, Gas insert fireplace built-in newly designed stone veneer wall and remodeled Bathroom with Heat Lamp.

Most desirable location on the Monterey Bay. - Ocean view from a large private Patio. - One Home away from the Water and two blocks from the Beach at Lovers Point.- Less then one block from P.G. Muni Golf Course and 8 minutes to Pebble Beach Links.

When it comes to location, we are prime between Monterey Aquarium and Asilomar Conference Center. -

Experience an unforgettable stroll along the Monterey Bay to the Aquarium.

Newly installed Gas Insert in Fireplace, Oakwood floor and Skylights in Open-Beam Ceiling plus Antique Armoire with buid-in 42' HD TV set the Romantic Scene.

Spectacular Ocean View Garden with Fountain, Waterfall and Large Private Patio plus Barbeque Area makes this retreat a Mini-Resort.

Kayakers!... We have plenty of storage space in our 3-car garage for your kayaks.

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

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived at the property and were absolutely wowed even before stepping inside! Wonderful location, beautiful grounds and fantastic ocean view from patio!! When we stepped inside we were very pleased with the accommodations. The studio was very spacious, nice furnishings and very clean. The owner, Jonathan, came down to greet us once we called to let him know we had arrived, and told us how a few things worked and if any questions at all to not hesitate to call him. We found the bed to be very comfortable and it was so quiet the whole time we actually slept late the days we were there. The kitchen was well stocked and very adequate for cooking. I would highly recommend this vacation rental. We will definitely return!!

Pacific Grove hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot for a romantic vacation in Pacific Grove. Secluded and quiet with lots of lovely walks along the coast nearby. Jonathan and Adriana are friendly, wonderful hosts. The rooms are spotless, the bed comfortable - a real charmer. We have visited seven times and hope to return again and again!

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and couldn't be happier. It was spotless and the location is exactly what we wanted: close to the ocean and the beautiful walking path that runs along Pacific Grove/Monterey Bay. The private patio adjoining the studio is the highlight of the place: we even spotted whales from there, which is a real thrill. The owners were friendly and accommodating, but not overbearing. It was nice to get a taste of the good life...relaxing, quiet...and the gardens were full of hummingbirds too. The full kitchen is a huge bonus. We look forward to another visit. Hopefully we'll be that lucky!

Return to paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this beautiful and quiet retreat was all we had expected. The location and views are difficult to beat. We feel that Pacific Grove is a treasure and that description also fits this beautiful, comfortable and quiet cottage. We visit the area several times a year and if available, we will be back again.

Does not meet expectations

  • 1 of 5

The location was very good

We had an interesting visit…

Good – Great location very close to the beach. The gardens were nice.

The bad – The house smelled of artificial fresheners throughout the house. The sheets were sub-par and left my mother iching so badly she couldn't sleep in the bed.

The "newly remodeled" kitchen was dated and very difficult to cook in. I was pretty surprised none of the other reviews specified this.

Most of the pictures that you see on VRBO are from the owner's suite 2 floors up and not from the actual location. Very disappointing.

The owners were very rude to me and my family and sent me disparaging emails about leaving food in the kitchen at check out and despite their lack of check out instructions. Also attacked my parenting for no reason at all. They should probably say "no children" if they can't deal!!

Owner's Response: About 8 months ago, one of our Guest Review headlined" "Forget the rest! - This is it!" This time we had a Guest with a 2 yr old daughter and her Grandmother stay with us for 6 nights. When our Guest checked out, they told me that they had very good time at the Dutches-by-the-Sea. The problem started, when we entered the premisses to perform the cleaning for the next Guests that day. * We found food all over the living room and kitchen floor. In addition the refrigerator was totally packed with half emptied containers and bottles. * The 2 yr old girl climbed our big Rock in our garden without an adult in attendance. I try to explain the problem to our guest, but instead of accepting my wishes, she was offended by it and calling it "attacking of her parenting". * We never use any freshener in the Cottage. - We are very surprised about her criticism regarding our bed sheets, because many guests have complimented Adriana about the soft sheets and asked her where she had bought them. * Last but not least. - As a courtesy, we provide two free Guest Passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. - After she vacated the Cottage, we discovered that one of the passes was missing. - When I Emailed her about the missing pass, she admitted she lost one.
