Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove: This home is an ideal beach house. It is literally 100 yards from the lagoon and is the closest home to Lover's point. It has views of the Monterey Bay from the living areas and both bedrooms. One can sit on the front porch, sip coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon and watch the tour buses go by.

The Unique Benefits at this House: Walk to the beach, the golf course, and downtown Pacific Grove. Take a casual one mile walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Drive 3 miles to the entrance of Pebble Beach and the world famous 17 Mile Drive.

Happy with Pacific Grove stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was a terrific 5 nights at this jewel on Jewell! Well-appointed property, clean, comfortable, and a great location at Lover's Point for 4 adults. Kitchen was easy to cook in. At one point I baked shortcake for strawberry shortcake, and I couldn't get the oven to turn off. Jack sent his handylady over and she was there in less than 10 min with a fix. Bravo to Valerie!

When in PG, we always eat at Max's Grill and it's within walking distance. We also love Mauricio's for b'fast and/or lunch when we don't feel like cooking, also within walking distance. We did the Steinbeck Tour around town, and stopped at Point Pinos Lighthouse. We visited Point Lobos and took the bird rock tour with the docent. It was windy while we were there, but we live in San Francisco and live with windy conditions so it wasn't anything new.

One of the reasons I rented the property was due to the bonus TV's in the bedrooms, and the satellite TV worked well throughout the house (the basketball playoffs were on!). We've stayed in PG many times, but this was our favorite property so far. Jack truly maintains his place and it shows. You will love it! I give this place a perfect 5 star. We will be back. Thanks so much, Jack.

Cozy beach house in Pacific Grove

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Jack's cottage as a part of our destination wedding on the Monterey Peninsula. The cottage is very charming, well decorated and well kept. The bedrooms are a good size. The parking/courtyard area can also be used as a great outdoor entertainment space while barbecuing. The location is great as you are right across the street from Lovers Point and within blocks of the local farmers market, shops and restaurants. Cannery Row/Aquarium is about a 30 minute walk along the beach. :) The only 'negative' is that there can be some noise from traffic around Lovers Point, but should not deter you from staying here.

Jack is a great host, and even phoned the first day to ensure that we had everything we needed. We would definitely rent again.

Charming beach house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and daughters (ages 25 and 21) had the pleasure of renting Jack's beach house last week and we LOVED everything about it! It's exactly as advertised.....if not better than advertised! We highly recommend it. As previous renters have attested to, it is beautifully-decorated, well-maintained and well-stocked, clean and in the perfect location! Jack was wonderful to deal with and provided helpful information throughout the process. We will definitely rent again!

Always a great stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times and we always enjoy coming back. It's in a beautiful location, you can walk to almost everything town, shops, restaurants, movie theatre, grocery store, the aquarium, cannery row etc. It's also in the perfect stop for beautiful drives on the coast and lots of amazing hikes in Garrapata State Park and Point Lobos. Jack has now included four aquarium passes for guests which we used quite a few times. We always discover something new every time we stay here, so will continue to return.

Loved the cottage and Pacific Grove, too.

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful 12 days at Jack's cottage. Walked everywhere, rode bikes and chased the sunsets all the way to Carmel. While the corner is bustling during the day, the evenings were quiet and peaceful. The cottage is filled with character and had everything to make our stay comfortable. The off-street parking was very handy. Comfy beds, great kitchen and a washer/dryer, this place is a gem and we hope to return.
