This property was lovely, perfect location in Pacific Grove and very well equipped. The only issues were the Tv not working in the downstairs not bedroom and we couldn't seem to get hot water out of the shower in the bigger downstairs bedroom. Other than that I couldn't fault a thing, I would stay again.
The location was awesome ! Just a couple blocks to the Lovers point beach area and downtown Pacific Grove . The kids walked every where ! They walked to Cannery row, Lovers point, Down town Monterrey, The wharf.....Two boys 14 and 15- said it was the best vacation of their life because they were able to cruise around all over. The kitchen was really well equipt for a vacation rental - we even baked cookies! The lines were really nice. The garage is small- but that's the area for you ..The had picnic baskets and chairs for the beach- which we used ! Over all- this was the best rental house I have ever stayed and can't wait to book next year- the boys stayed in the twin bed room and there was also a double size futon in they which they lounged on...this rental is a Yes ! Really clean and nice !
Ideal for our family vacation with children, grandchildren and dog. The location was perfect. Walking distance to many activities (golf, beach, aquarium, park, playground), dining and shopping.
The design of the house was comfortable for all, with nice decorative touches throughout.
We hope to make this an annual tradition.
We had a wonderful time here. The home was very comfortable for our family of 7 with separate areas that allowed for privacy. A short walk to the ocean or Pacific Grove was very convenient. Our kids loved the board games and the sand toys. Everything we needed was provided which made it feel like a 2nd home. We hope to come back again soon.
Beautiful home in a beautiful location. A perfect fit for three couples from the Pacific Northwest coming to enjoy a wedding weekend. Our every need was met!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Seashore Retreat is beautifully maintained and decorated. Located in Pacific Grove, the home was the perfect location for our needs - central to Monterey, Pebble Beach and Carmel. I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the home was given it's proximity to the main street in Pacific Grove. After renting homes in the area every summer for the past five years I can honestly say this was one of our favorites. I would wholeheartedly recommend both this property and the rental agency.
Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the main entrance to 17-Mile Drive. Within this charming city, known for its old-fashioned, friendly downtown and colorful historic Victorian homes, are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allow you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.
Visit the Museum of Natural History, Point Pinos Light-house, tour Asilomar State Park, or enjoy the Sunset anywhere between Lovers Point Park and Asilomar Beach. Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town U.S.A. since every October the Monarchs migrate to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary where they winter until February. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is the top rated municipal golf in the state with over 70,000 rounds played annually. It is referred to as poor man's Pebble Beach due to its proximity and resemblance of Pebble Beach courses.
Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Pacific Grove. The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp where several hundreds assembled to worship amidst rough tents. Tour brochures are available at the Chamber.
Pacific Grove's Past:
The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp, where several hundred people assembled to worship amidst rough tents. In time, the fragrant pines and fresh sea air brought others to the Pacific Grove Retreat to rest and meditate. The first camp meeting of the Pacific Coast branch of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle was held here in June 1879. Fashioned after the Methodist Sunday school teachers' training camp established in 1874 at Lake Chautauqua, N.Y., this location became part of a nation-wide educational/cultural network.
In November 1879, after the summer campers returned home, Robert Louis Stevenson wandered into the deserted campgrounds: I have never been in any place so dreamlike. Indeed, it was not so much like a deserted town as like a scene upon the stage by daylight, and with no one on the boards -- from 'The Old Pacific Capitol'
By 1889, the resort was incorporated, becoming the City of Pacific Grove. The last P.G. Chautauqua was held in August 1926.
Monterey Peninsula info:
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!
