About the property

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 nice garden & view from patio

  • 3 of 5

This little studio is attached to a very large house with a lovely large garden. The patio is lovely and you can see the ocean from the patio. The studio has all the basics for cooking, and everything was in working condition. It has skylights and windows that look out on a patio with a broad overhang. The best part of the stay was the monarch butterflies and hummingbirds in the garden.

The owners were very cordial and greeted us after we arrived. There is a beautiful private patio with a view of the ocean. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were very plush. The fireplace was also the heater for this place and was controlled by a thermostat. We were very warm and toasty. Overall this was a great find on VRBO. My husband and I are looking forward to our next stay at Dutchess by the Sea. Thank you to our hosts Jonathan and Adriana for making our trip very memorable.

Good property in a great location in Pacific Grove. Only one block to the water.

  • 4 of 5

Overall very good. It is charming, clean and is very private and quiet.

Excellent home entertainment set up for a large studio.

Our only suggestions relates to the small appliances as they could upgrade the coffee maker and the blender.

The owners are nice and the unit was quite tidy and clean when we arrived.

Would definitely recommend.

Wow! This beautiful little cottage was exactly what we were hoping for. It's located in a very nice neighborhood to begin with and located just 100 steps from the beach. Upon arrival you take in the gorgeous manicured landscaping and the patio area where one can enjoy a cup of coffee each morning and look out to the ocean. The cottage itself is just perfect. A very comfortable bed, a full kitchen w/all the necessary things as far as dishes, glasses, pots and pans, etc., a closet w/plenty of space for hanging clothes, a large screen TV w/cable, Wi-Fi, and total privacy which is so important to me. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the deer who visited each evening much to the owners' chagrin as the deer love eating their plants and flowers. Just don't leave the gate ajar for the deer to get into the yard! LOL We even had a baby fawn outside our window which was adorable and of course we took a picture. Unfortunately, we arrived in Pacific Grove when the Big Sur fire had begun. However, we never smelled smoke and our eyes were never burning because the wind somehow blew all the smoke out to the ocean and beyond. Would we come back? You bet because we loved it! Thank you Jonathan and Adrianna for providing a bit of heaven for others to enjoy. And thank you for your hospitality.
