About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Welcome to “The Seventeenth Street House"!

Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

The house has a year-round 3 night minimum, accommodates up to 8 adults and 2 children age 12 and under with a maximum of 3 cars. The Pacific Grove Vacation Rental Permit for this house limits the number of parking spaces to 3 cars on the street. There is no off street parking. Car pooling may be necessary to accommodate the City parking requirement.

This spacious 3,000 square feet, 3-story home has been completely remodeled with great attention to detail. The Seventeenth Street House is a perfect home for family reunions; however due to the sensitivity of our neighbors and limited parking, the home is not available for wedding parties or wedding groups.

It is located in the charming seaside community of Pacific Grove -- known as "Butterfly Town USA" because it is a stop in the migration of the Monarch Butterfly. It is also called "America's last hometown" for its small-scale, old-fashioned downtown of locally owned shops and businesses.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary wine and nuts, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay.

On the first floor there is a solarium with views of the garden and fountains from each end as well as an open floor plan that includes a dining area with a large wooden table. There is a formal parlor-living room that adjoins a fireplace room crafted from local Carmel stone -- perfect for sitting on the comfortable couch and relaxing with a glass of wine or curled up with a good novel. There is also a library room, a fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room and full bathroom with a claw foot tub and separate walk-in shower. One small bedroom with a twin size bed is also on the first floor.

On the second floor there is a TV room with a comfortable couch to watch a movie or sports. The billiard room has a full-size pool table and is located next to the TV room making it perfect for socializing and gathering together.

Also on the second floor are 3 bedrooms, one with a king bed which can also become two twins, one with a double bed, and one with a queen bed. There is a full bathroom with a shower-over-claw foot tub that is accessible to all three bedrooms.

The third floor is the Master Suite that is like being in the treetops with beautiful sunsets and sunrises that can be seen from the windows and balcony. The master suite has a large sitting area, master bathroom with deep soaking tub, separate shower and bay views. The king bed can also be broken down into two twins if preferred. Another twin bed is located in the seating area. You can count on a great night sleep high above the treetops with the salt air smells wafting from the nearby Bay. This space is as big as a studio apartment.

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing this wonderful home with you. This charming-turn-of-the-century house is only two blocks from the heart of Pacific Grove with award-winning restaurants, cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, a movie theater, art galleries, a bookstore/coffee house with live entertainment and numerous specialty shops including vintage clothing, antique stores, an ice cream shop as well as a Monday Farmers' Market featuring regional organic produce, local crafts and food vendors. Whatever the occasion might be, we are excited to share this special home and the beautiful surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We enjoyed your home. It seems to be unique among Pacific Grove properties in that it’s very large but also allows visitors to have some privacy! There are so many rooms that we easily spread ourselves out among them. The master suite is truly exceptional- huge but cozy, secluded from the other two floors, and beautifully furnished. In fact, the entire house is tastefully decorated and restored- a very warm, comfortable home. The center of the house for our family was the game room with pool table. We always had a least two players shooting pool and a cheering section around. The TV room was another favorite gathering place where we rooted in vain for the Giants to win. And finally the large dining table and counter with barstools held all of us comfortably as we prepared and ate our meals

Thanks so much for making our stay so wonderful!

Large comfortable house, great location and owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time this past weekend in Pacific Grove, many thanks to Nan and Robert. When we arrived, we were taken through the house to get familiarized, answer any questions and make sure we were settled. Everything was very organized and the owners were incredibly responsive to any questions we had.

We had a multi-generational group, my mother, my wife and I, our teenaged boys and their friends and the house was perfect for everything we needed.....1st floor room for my mom (who struggles with stairs) middle story for my wife and I and some of the boys, and the top floor where the boys could hang out with a lot and play video games (in the evening) without interrupting any one else.

Its a short walk to Lighthouse Ave and Lovers Point, and an easy (though slightly longer) walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium/Cannery Row or Asilomar state beach.

My ultimate criteria is asking if we would stay here again....and the answer is definitely yes!

Well appointed and clean!

  • 5 of 5

One person’s desire to run the Monterey Half Marathon led the runner and 6 keen supporters(AKA golfers) to a week in Pacific Grove. The 17th Street house was perfect for our needs. Thank you to Robert and Nan for thinking of everything to make a terrific home away from home.

We had great communication via email and text prior to arrival providing directions and pinning down arrival time. Robert familiarized us with the house on our arrival and was available if we needed. The spacious clean home easily accommodated the 7 adults in our party. The beds were deemed comfortable by everyone in the group and there are a few “bad backs” in the bunch! The three bathrooms are well supplied with lovely soap, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner for your needs. Hot water was in good supply, we never had to juggle timing of showers. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals. Plenty of cookware, serving dishes, dishes and cutlery for a large group, pretty much anything you could think of right down to the garbage bags, foil wrap and paper towels. There is a nice supply of seasonings, oils and even miscellaneous items such as oatmeal and rice available for your use. The house is well laid out for socializing with lots of perfect spots to get away from the group with a book. The pool table on the second floor provided evening entertainment as skill (or lack of skill) was rediscovered.

Restaurants and a grocery store are walking distance with the water front pathway a little further but definitely walkable for the average adult.

This home is so well appointed and clean we would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again.

Loved The Seventeenth Street House. It was homey with charm and character. Great location in a quiet neighborhood. House was clean and orderly with plenty of supplies. Spacious and well-equipped communal kitchen that functions well for cleaning, cooking, eating, gathering, lingering and entertaining. Owners very responsive and hospitable. Recommend this home. LM

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Pacific Grove. The house was spacious and the beds were comfortable. My kids especially enjoyed the movie room and the swing in the tree in the beautiful patio area. The adults had a great time playing a game of pool, we haven't done that in a while. The location was ideal for walking to the beach. We had a lovely stay!

A Gem on 17th Street in Pacific Grove, CA

  • 5 of 5

The home is cozy, comfortable, well-maintained and clean. The home easily handles groups of 6 or 8 for meal preparation and fun and games at the large dining table. The kitchen is well-stocked for those who like to cook. I have stayed in the 17th Street House at least 3 times and always look forward to returning. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and family.

Beautiful Beach Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! We felt so lucky to spend a long weekend gathered here. The little front yard was a haven for our children and the layout of the house was perfect for offering both communal and private space for our group. Nan and her husband are kind and helpful hosts. I couldn't recommend this home more!

It is an easy 4 block walk to Lover's Point Beach and the breathtaking regional trail that winds along the Monterey Bay connecting Asilomar State Beach, the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf.

Along the route you will find one great restaurant after the next, local wine-tasting with amazing views of Monterey Bay as well as many tourist attractions, including whale watching, sailing, kayaking and chowder sampling.

We are only a 5-minute drive to the Pebble Beach Gate and 17-Mile-Drive, a 10-minute drive to Carmel and another 20 minutes to Carmel Valley. Big Sur is a 45-minute drive south with some of the most breathtaking views in the world en route.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking
