Why Bob chose Pacific Grove

Pacific Grove is just an hour from our home but a weekend away in PG feels more like a longer vacation. We love to golf, love the Monterey Bay beaches and we enjoy the wide variety and selection of great restaurants in the area.

What makes this house unique

Toastie's is a great local breakfast & lunch restaurant and practically in our back yard. We walk over in the mornings for their great breakfasts and local flavor.

Comfortable, spotless, beautiful Pacific Grove home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful and very comfortable Pacific Grove home. It was the perfect location for attending car events in Carmel, Monterey and Pacific Grove for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance week. Gourmet kitchen, two beautiful bedrooms, really comfortable living room and family room with large screen TVs. Great water pressure in the master shower upstairs, which we really appreciated, and everything was spotless. We walked 2 blocks to Lighthouse Avenue for restaurants ( and car events) and 2 blocks to Lovers Point for beach walks and fabulous Happy Hour dinners at the Beach House waterfront restaurant. You couldn't find a nicer place to stay. We hope to be back next year!

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely lovely! It was immaculate. I am frequently uneasy staying anywhere as I get easily turned off by any small evidence of uncleanliness, but I felt so at home here as it was amazingly clean and very beautifully decorated. The beds and linens were wonderfully comfortable too! The washer and dryer were so quiet when they ran, and with them being right outside the bedroom, I worried when I threw the laundry in right before bedtime, but they ran so quiet, we never heard them. The area is so enchanting, we would love to come back and would stay here in a heartbeat!
