Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is adorable and spotlessly clean! It was everything we wanted and more. It felt like we were the first ones (I know we were not) to occupy it after an excellent renovation. The house is walking distance to everything. Pacific Grove is lovely: less chi-chi than Carmel and less honky tonk than Monterey. We partook in several of the excellent restaurants as well as eating in. The kitchen is totally equipped. The gas fireplace made a rainy afternoon at home very cozy. Emily and Josh were extremely accommodating: providing a pak n play crib and high chair for our 7 month old grandson, as well as a little goodie bag of nibbles in the kitchen for us! We would definitely stay again when we return to the area. Highly recommended!!

Charming and Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four day stay in Pacific Grove. The house was very well-maintained, cozy and comfortable. The gas fireplace was very nice after a long day outside in the chilly weather. The location was great - a short walk to downtown Pacific Grove where we enjoyed some great restaurants and a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed a fun day at the aquarium, lots of time on the beach and the beautiful 17 mile drive. We had a lovely stay and hope to stay again at Casa Blanca!

Great Stay near Monterey

  • 5 of 5

This Pacific Grove casa was perfect for our visit to the Monterey area. Close to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, 17 Mile Drive and all the rest of the nearby attractions. Two large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in an impeccably clean and inviting house worked very well for us. Emily and her brother, as well as property manager frank were very easy to work with and the property did not disappoint. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return soon.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in the beautiful Monterey/Pacific Grove area. The house is very well decorated, clean & has all the amenities you could ask for. We walked to restaurants & shops in town which was nice. The house is perfect for two couples or a small family. We loved it! would recommend to everyone....

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice and works great for 2 couples. It is located on a nice quiet street and is close to town. Frank was great to work with and made everything easy. Although we did not offer this feedback while staying there, the owners may be interested in knowing that there was a fair amount of unkempt and dirty features that need some attention. There were large stains on the carpet, the furniture was quite soiled, the exterior porch and entry appeared to not have been swept or cared for in weeks, the exterior gate and posts need a good pressure washing or in the least a good cleaning, and the outdoor furniture was full of cobwebs so we didn't use them.

Pacific Grove Charmer

  • 5 of 5

Three nights wasn't enough in this lovely home perfectly situated in quaint Pacific Grove. Beautifully decorated with all the amenities for a very comfortable stay - comfortable beds, great shower, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer. Great location that's an easy walk to restaurants, town shops, beautiful ocean walk, golf course or just a quick drive into Monterey or Carmel. We always prefer to stay in Pacific Grove over Carmel or Monterey as it's so much more serene and relaxed. Some of our restaurant choices are Passionfish, Red House, Il Vecchio. Or Montrio Bistro in Monterey (great Happy Hour), Grasings in Carmel. Always fun to play tourist in those other towns and come back to this intimate, charming home in PG. Makes us feel like locals! Will definitely rent this property again!
