The house has 2 bedrooms (one with queen bed; one with two twins) and a queen sized sofa bed in the living room. The 2 hand-carved stone bathrooms are sheer luxury. French doors open up to 3 patios.

About The Owner

We are a family of writers from Los Angeles. Pacific Grove is our favorite place on the planet. On vacation a few 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?

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Asilomar house.

The house is great and the layout is wonderful.

The location is perfect for walks to Asilomar beach and surroundings.

We hope to stay there again when we are in the area.

Perfectly quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our needs. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and everything was well-labeled in the closets. Tippi & Norm have an extensive collection of movie screeners (but we are hoping that they will build a hot tub in the house structure outside for our next visit). The house is a short walk to the beach and there are many restaurants within a few miles. The area is quiet and beautiful and it is easy to reach town by bike (many bikes available for use in the garage). But really the best part of the rental is Tippi herself. She is so responsive, attentive and helpful that your vacation will be worry-free.

(Side note - I moronically left my computer in the home and Tippi facilitated getting it back to me within minutes of learning that it got left behind.)

Jessica's Graduation Celebration !

  • 4 of 5

We all had a very good time. The home was easy to find, very spacious, very well stocked with most anything we needed and very comfortable !!

We were even visited by some of the local wild life in the back yard. A doe and a fawn. We had folks in the front yard and some on the patio.

Our two night stay seemed to short !

We would most definitely consider this type of rental again!!!!!!

Thanks Again,

Mike & Jannell

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.

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The property is a wonderful retreat. On a quiet street a block from the ocean, you can hear and smell the waves from the back porch! The location is perfect, we took a couple easy walks to a nearby restaurants, and a leisurely bike ride to Carmel. Tippi and Neal were incredibly accommodating, and were happy to provide (excellent) recommendations. Their house is also fully equipped and very cozy! We were able to comfortably fit 6 adults around the dinner table, and on the couch for a movie ( they have an excellent selection) We grilled outside, and our pup loved racing around the giant fenced yard! I absolutely recommend this place for your stay on the Monterey Peninsula.
