Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 1/2 bath, sleeps 7

You will discover why Pacific Grove calls itself “the last hometown,” in this pristine single-story ranch-style bungalow whose traditional look has been updated for contemporary tastes. This renovated three-bedroom two and one half bath cottage, which sleeps seven, is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood and makes a perfect getaway for family and friends to reconnect.

The house is located one street away from the Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, which follows the shoreline from beautiful Asilomar Beach around the point to Cannery Row and the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium.In addition to Esplanade Park, there is a tiny public succulent garden nearby. The friendly shops, restaurants and boutiques of downtown Pacific Grove are just a mile away. A picturesque lighthouse is a mere half-mile away, and a fine municipal golf course with ocean views that is the locals' best kept secret is a few blocks up the street. Carmel and Monterey are 10 minute drives.

This cheerful yellow house trimmed in white and teal has a classic feel with a curving stone path that leads to the front door and the tiled entry that opens to the comfortable living room. The interior has hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout. Family and friends can gather for visiting, playing games, puzzles or watching their favorite programs or movies on the 49' HDTV in the comfortable living room with its red-brick fireplace, cushy sofas and sturdy dark wood tables. You can see the ocean from the dining room that features a dark wood rectangular table that seats six and old-fashioned wrought-iron chandelier. Cooking will be a pleasure in the bright, fully-equipped kitchen with its well-conceived layout and pristine white cabinetry and appliances -- including gas range, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Read a magazine or book and sip your morning coffee at a round oak table in a cozy breakfast nook.

Luxury linens will make you feel like royalty, especially in the master bedroom that has a Queen Bed with excellent mattress and Memory Foam topper. The sparkling master bathroom is tiled throughout and features dark wood cabinetry and a tub/shower. A second bedroom can sleep two in a king with Memory Foam topper that converts to two twins. The third bedroom is set up with 3 twin beds. A handsome second full bathroom has Corian counters and a tub/shower lined with white tiles. To make your stay more comfortable, we provide plush spa bathrobes, and over-sized towels and beach gear.

A gas grill is provided. The completely enclosed back and side yard is perfect for privacy. A washer and dryer are located in the one-car garage just off the kitchen. The house is completely level and there are no steps inside of the house.

Car: recommended

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.

Other Activities: Whale, dolphin and sea otter watching.

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was the PERFECT rental for our annual junior high reunion! The home is well appointed, impeccably clean, walking distance to the ocean and in a great, safe neighborhood. The kitchen was stocked with ample cooking supplies and dishes and the bathrooms well stocked with enough linens for all 6 of us. The garage bathroom was also useful for hair drying, make up application, etc. Loved the large cozy sectional and had enough seating for all of us. The gas fireplace was perfect for morning coffee and took away the chill. The owners are super responsive and provided all the important information timely and so organized in the welcome packet! I will absolutely rent again. The only minor drawback was the original hardwood floors squeaked so no sneaking around to the bathroom late at night!

Perfect Location for our Stay in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood in Pacific Grove, just a short walk to the beach and easy access to Monterey and Carmel. Plenty of room for 4 adults, with comfortable beds and all the accessories we needed for a delightful stay! Owners were very responsive to our questions, and provide lots of helpful info on the surrounding area, favorite restaurants, etc.

We loved our time here, and hope to come back!

Spacious, beautiful home very close to ocean

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with large rooms, and can accommodate a large family. It was very clean, and well stocked. The location was great, just off stunning views of the ocean and the Bay of Monterey. Beds were very comfortable. The rooms were well-lighted with lots of windows. Two eating areas are both very nice. Kitchen has everything you need. I would stay again, and I would recommend this place to my friends.

Weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

Rooms were clean and smelled fresh! Comfy beds! The door to the backyard from the dining room sticks pretty hard and I was afraid I would damage it when I closed it.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit and we appreciate your comments about the patio door. We believe the door was sticky because of the series of heavy rains recently in Pacific Grove. We will have our housekeeper check to see if the problem is continuing, and we will fix it if it is.
