About the property

This beautiful Victorian received the 2004-2005 Award for best Pacific Grove historic home remodel from the Historical Society.

The perfectly restored home features two bedrooms (spaced for ultimate privacy with each

having access to their own bathrooms), a spacious and open living room/dining room combination as well as a custom designed kitchen, comfortable den, quaint backyard deck and a laundry room.

Stroll east a few blocks and find yourself among the downtown boutiques and stores and as well as many of the nearly 60 restaurants located in Pacific Grove. Travel west the same distance and you will be standing on the shore of majestic Monterey Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The description of the cottage matched our needs, and the location was perfect. We've never shared a rental with another couple before, and it worked very well for all of us. Having two bathrooms makes all the difference. It's a charming house in a quiet, but friendly neighborhood of similar homes. Everything inside is fresh, clean, and very well maintained.



We were busy every day and enjoyed evening strolls to the main part of town, just a few blocks away. Pacific Grove is our favorite location to stay anywhere on Monterey Bay. The Monterey Aquarium is spectacular, and the two guest passes are a welcome bonus, as you need to go more than once.



We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends, and we hope to stay there again ourselves.

Comfortable and Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The property was clean, nicely decorated, and had all the amenities we needed, including WI-FI. We appreciated the shadow box showing items from the home's past. We enjoyed the use of guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which was on our list of things to do. The Bay can be seen from the back patio. The location was ideal for us. It is a few blocks from downtown Pacific Grove and very close to Monterey. It is also an easy drive to Carmel, 17-mile-Drive, and destinations along Scenic HWY 1. It is about an hour drive to Santa Cruz and Big Basin, and about a two hour drive to San Francisco. We would stay here again!

Thank you Gary for accommodating us!

Great place in an even better location.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Pacific Grove. The house was very nice and had a great kitchen so we didn't have to eat every meal out. The location was really great too as Pacific Grove is just a block away and Monterey is not much further. Enjoyed walking through the neighborhoods and to the waterfront. The owner was very nice and helpful. We found ants one day throughout the smaller bathroom near the laundry room. I contacted him and he immediately had someone come over and check it out. We were not there at the time. When we got back to house, there was not a sign of ants. Really appreciated his concern and attention to addressing the problem. My only complaint is the frame on the bed in the master bedroom creaked alot. Whenever someone turned over, the bed made loud creaking sounds which woke me and/or my husband up. I would recommend that they get rid of the bed frame. It doesn't add much to the room and is very annoying. The bed/mattress was very comfortable otherwise. Would still highly recommend staying at this property.

Owner's Response: Strange, I know of no problems with the internet or wifi. If Sharon had a problem, I wish she would have contacted me.
