About The Owner

We are a family of writers from Los Angeles. Pacific Grove is our favorite place on the planet. On vacation many summers ago, we took a walk and found ourselves in the backyard of the most beautiful property for sale. We went temporarily insane and somehow ended up buying it. Then came the renovations. And now...well, we can no longer afford to stay there. And so, here we are in L.A. at our computer, hoping that you are enjoying Pacific Grove - take a walk for us, ok?

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property describe themselves as Los Angeles based writers and appropriately, this property has the feel of a writer's retreat; one could easily see a famous author pounding away on the keyboard while he or she sat in the light and airy dining room overlooking a spacious backyard complete with towering Cypress trees.

This house appears modest and unassuming from the exterior but its interior has been extensively remodeled. Classic, light colored hardwood floors are carried throughout the house. Floor to ceiling windows and doors with glass inserts allow for a light and open feel. The floorplan in the main area is open to the adjacent dining area and kitchen.

The kitchen, while older in comparison to the remainder of the home's interior, is fully functional, open, and spacious.

The bathrooms have a Tuscan, rustic, feel and are beautifully remodeled.

The furnishings are simple and tasteful. One of the best things about this house is that it was elegant with a great and pleasing aesthetic but it is not ostentatious.

All of the supplies one would need for a comfortable stay are located in the house.

The proximity of the home to the Asilomar State Beach and Park is one of the property's best features. We were exploring tide pools and walking along the beautiful coast after a very short walk from the home's front door. In comparison to other homes in downtown Pacific Grove, this home, even though it is located in a neighborhood, feels very secluded. It is perfect for a restful stay.

The home's owner, Tippi, was very pleasant to work with; she was attentive and gracious.

We stayed here for Mother's Day weekend as a gesture of appreciation for my wife and we had a wonderful, peaceful, time. We felt fortunate to stay at this property and hope it is available in the future.

This house was perfect for our girlfriend weekend. A very nice and comfortable house that accommodated us well. Big yard, and decks to enjoy the evenings on.

A short walk to the beach for morning walks and gorgeous sunsets. The owners were great to rent from. We will be back!!

Great stay in Monterey

  • 4 of 5

Location of this home is just about perfect for doing things in and around Monterey and Carmel! Just a 1/3 mile walk to the beach! All rooms, except the kitchen, have been recently nicely remodeled. Tippi is very, very friendly and helpful! Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

We loved this little house. It was sunny, cozy and comfortable. Perfect for our family of 4. Beautiful trees around and great location. There is no ocean view, but you can hear the ocean and it's a 5-minute walk to Asilomar Beach. Not much further to Spanish Bay. It was awesome to have this access for the most amazing morning walks on the coast. Kids loved exploring the beaches too. We definitely hope to be back.

Perfect

My daughter & I came to the area for a quiet family reunion & this house was perfect for us in every way, tranquil, comfortable & convenient. It is an easy stroll to the beach & short drive to the shops, we are very sorry to be going back to rainy old London!
