Stunning Ocean Views From This Charming Vacation Rental in Pacific Grove!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2br/1ba, Ocean views and 50 yards from the coast

This charming 2br, 1ba was owned by one family for many years. Recently purchased from the estate, it has been extensively remodeled and upgraded. All new: paint, landscape, windows, roof, tile floors, granite counter tops, fixtures, decorating, and lots of upgrades.

Best of all - it is 50 yards from the coast with expansive bay views from the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and full-length rear deck!! You can stroll miles of coastal trail from Pacific Grove to Marina.

Located between Lover's Point and the golf course, this is an outstanding location for diving and kayaking. Walk to your favorite eateries and attractions - the Aquarium, Cannery Row, PassionFish, Asilomar and the Pt Pinos Grill at the golfcourse. There's plenty of room for kayaks, bikes, golf clubs, and dive gear - so bring the toys!

Want to enjoy wildlife? We have watched whales and porpoises from the living room, spot sea otters and seals on a daily basis, and frequently have deer walking down the street in front of the house! Monarch butterflies can be found all over town in the fall, and there's more exotic wildlife at the aquarium. Comes with 2 guest passes to Monterey Bay Aquarium!

This home is located on Balboa Ave - one of the most desirable streets, in the best neighborhood in Pacific Grove. It's set one street back from Ocean Front, so you get to enjoy being close to the ocean, with more solitude and privacy.

Inside, find two spacious bedrooms with very comfortable queen pillowtop beds, and warm comforters. A trundle bed in the second bedroom expands sleeping capacity to five. The large living room has relaxing seating for many, while enjoying a glass of wine and watching the bay. On cooler nights, enjoy the fireplace and play music from your ipod on our stereo, or watch a movie!

The kitchen is bright, cheery, and very functional. In the morning, watch the sunrise over the bay from the cozy kitchen table, while enjoying Pavel's pastries and a latte or cappucino. In the evenings, whether making pasta for friends, or bbq'ing on the rear deck - you'll enjoy the accessibility to the rest of your party and all of the amenities.

Equipped with wireless networking, 2 HDTV's, premium cable, and iPod hookups. Dishwasher in the kitchen and washer and dryer in the garage.

About Ron and Christy Lloyd

We are native Californians, have owned our home in PG for since 2006, and underwent an extensive remodel so we can move here fulltime. We absolutely love our neighborhood and our neighbors - and know you will as well. Hiking, golf, fishing and kayaking run in our family, so we've got plenty of experience to give you good advice on all of the local activities

We have excellent recommendations for masseuses, restaurants, dive charters, whale-watching charters, kayaking beaches, and the all-important bakery.

Ron and Christy Lloyd purchased this house in 2012

Why Ron and Christy Lloyd chose Central Coast California

We didn't start out to get into the hospitality business, but when this charming house became available, we decided to take the plunge. We have traveled all over the world and know what we'd like to see in a vacation property, so we made major investments in remodeling the home, and did it all with the vacationing traveler in mind. We wanted to create a space where we would want to spend a weekend, a week, or a month.

What makes this house unique

We're very close to the trail, golf course, Lover's Point, Asilomar, Cannery Row and the Wharf - you can park the car and enjoy a short walk to every possible amenity. And when you're done with an invigorating day on Monterey Bay, entertain with beautiful bay views on the full length rear deck.

Last minute trip to take in a break in weather!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the little house by the sea was spectacular! We wanted to plan a getaway but wanted to wait for a break in the weather. We got it! The weather while we were there could not have been more perfect. The house is charming and has everything needed for a nice, comfortable stay. Waking up and having our coffee in the dining area with the views of Monterey Bay was truly a delight. It was nice to come back to this cozy place at the end of each of our days. We bbq'd 3 of the evenings and went out to dinner 2 evenings. Thanks Ron and Christy for recommending Passion was great! We also had dinner at Il Vechio and it was fantastic! When we did have a couple of questions about the house, Ron and Christy got back to us quickly and were very helpful. We will be back!

Comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this charming home...the first time I stayed with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter; we all enjoyed the home. The beds are comfortable; there are plenty of linens and kitchen supplies. The neighborhood is quiet and excellent for walking along the coast or past the interesting homes and yards.

My second trip was with my husband to celebrate our anniversary; we walked, ate, shopped and took in a movie at the local theater. We particularly enjoyed Hula's and Il Vecchio.

I do feel that the cleaning fee is a little high, especially since we didn't cook there, but it's nice to have such a clean place to stay.

Thank you! I hope to be back again!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple from the east who rented this lovely house for a month. It is an absolutely wonderful accommodation in all respects. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. The house is beautiful, inside and out. The views from the large deck were awesome. We ate our meals there and delighted in watching the ocean and coast activity. When it was foggy or too cool to sit outside, we sat at the dining room table and enjoyed ocean views through the picture window. The house was spotless and fully equipped. The house, including the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry area were fully supplied so that we could use them from day one. We rarely dined out since it was so easy to prepare meals in the bright, cheerful kitchen and eat on the expansive deck. The views were better than at most restaurants! The owners were very helpful and available to answer questions. Ron checked on us periodically to make sure everything was ok. They thoughtfully had a bottle of wine waiting for us upon our arrival. Also, a pass for the excellent Monterey Aquarium was included in the rental, and we used it more than once. We recommend going there as well as Pt Lobos State Park, Palo Corona State Park, and Pt Sur Lighthouse. The owners provide a very helpful guide with recommended restaurants, stores, bakery, walks, and activities, and there are maps and brochures available on the table. Check in and check out were smooth and the owners were quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our arrival. Thank you, Ron and Christy, for a delightful stay!

Counting the Days Before We Can Stay Here Again!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic find this was! Can't wait to return for another week-long stay here! Didn't want to leave! Excellent, A+++ owners always readily available via the entire process including online, yet never once intrusive during our stay. Adorable, cozy yet spacious, light and bright and very clean home. Even better in person than the online photos portray. Sits in a peaceful neighborhood yet just steps to the ocean! Large picture window in the living/dining room with views all day long. And, don't miss the sunrise in the morning! Nice sized bedrooms, large closets and dressers, kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Spacious deck with tables and plenty of seating and yes, another great spot to watch the birds, a deer or two if your quiet enough and also to enjoy the ocean view yet again. THANK YOU RON AND CHRISTY! We will be back in 2017! You're the best!

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is slightly over 1 mile away. Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf are also favorite attractions. We have whales nearly year-round, peaking in the spring and summer months. And monarch butterflies flock to PG in the fall.
