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.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, well maintained and the yard was lovely. The location was equally as amazing, we were able to walk to many locations including Pacific Grove and the beach.

We look forward to coming here again.

Thank you

Awesome!

GREAT location, only a short walk to the beach and beach paths near 17 mile drive. Beautiful home, sunny and bright, charming decor, and spotless! Very quiet neighborhood, and lots of privacy. Fantastic weekend getaway for us and our pooch!

Quiet, Clean and close to ocean

  • 5 of 5

Have been staying in Monterey for over 12 years and this is by far one of the best houses we have stayed out. Home is clean, cozy and on a quiet street. Owner was easy to reach and work with.

Truly a Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for us to rest, rejuvenate, and celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. My husband and I enjoyed every minute we spent in this well maintained quaint, vintage cottage near the sea. The cozy gas fireplace kept us warm during periods of outside springtime drizzle. This home has many upgrades, several of which were mentioned by the owners in their property introduction. However, what may have been unmentioned is their recent installation of a heating system that efficiently maintains the home at a comfortable temperature, in spite of any cool, damp weather outside.

Pacific Grove is one of our favorite places in the world. The ocean vistas are absolutely awesome! While the sun was out, we rode our bikes up and down the neighborhood streets, or walked the short block over to the beach to explore the countless tide-pools. Occasionally, we caught glimpses otters feeding amongst the rocks.

With grocery stores like Trader Joe's and Nob Hill not far away, we were able to stock the fridge and eat-in most of the time. This allowed us to enjoy both the comfort of the home, as well as the quiet, seclusion of its spacious fenced-in yard. Yet in the background, the romantic sound of the lulling surf wasn't far away.

We are so looking forward to returning to this sweet cottage some day soon!
