Why Bob chose Central Coast California

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.

Ambiance abounds in this charming Retreat Cottage in Pacific Grove! This was our 3rd stay at this lovely "home-away-from-home" and we look forward to our next visit.

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!

Fantastic Home in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay and couldn't have asked for a better location. The photos don't even do the home justice. There was ample space for our family with two children during the first part of our visit and friends the last weekend. The home was fully equipped with everything we could ask for, the linens were in excellent condition and the beds very comfortable. The washer and dryer was clean and so handy to have. We've stayed in a number of vacation rentals and the pride of ownership in this one really stands out. It was unseasonably warm so we slept with our windows open and the neighborhood was very quiet. The recommendation book provided by Bob and Donna was very nice to have and we found the restaurants within walking distance to be excellent with very friendly service. The home is located adjacent to a park and within a short walk to the beach. There was nothing we needed that the home didn't have. Excellent attention to details and traveler needs. We look forward to staying here again and thank the owners for presenting such a fantastic vacation rental for our family.

Exceptional vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Bob and Donna's beautiful home exceeded our expectations. The house and furnishings were beautiful; the location near downtown PG, Monterey, and Carmel was ideal; and the service from Bob and next-door-neighbor Sarah was first rate. The upstairs master suite was a welcoming retreat, and there was ample room for our adolescent boys to spread out downstairs. The beds and linens were luscious, and even the pull-out mattress in the TV room was comfy. We enjoyed being able to walk to nearby restaurants and shops, as well as take a busy day trip to Big Sur. A notebook with Bob and Donna's recommendations for restaurants and activities (as well as passes to the Aquarium) was so helpful and appreciated. We can't stop talking about our wonderful vacation in PG. I hope we're able to return again soon!

Beautiful Home, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Donna's Pacific Grove home stands out among may we've stayed in through Vrbo. The high quality of furnishings, kitchen equipment, bedding and linens made us feel as if we were guests in someone's meticulously cared-for home. Having the very friendly and capable manager, Sarah, right next door is ideal. Just a short walk on the shoreline path is the Aquarium (thanks for the free passes, Bob!) with seals and their pups to view along the way as well. We also enjoyed our strolls through the quiet neighborhood full of Victorian houses. We're already planning our return visit!
