This 1100 square feet, two-bedroom one-bath flat may be rented separately as part of the three-in-one executive residence or combined with one or both of the other 600 square feet, one-bedroom, one-bath flats that are located on the property. There are sweeping bay views from the living, dining and kitchen windows and there is Old World charm in the interior finishes and furniture that was chosen. This beautiful residence has had its interiors totally renovated from the ground up sparing no expense and the attention to detail is comparable to a 5 star hotel. Newly updated with hardwood floors and rich earth-toned interiors.
This flat has custom Old World-style antiqued cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a chef’s dream kitchen and 2 flat-screen HDTVs. All of the furniture is high-end, combining style and comfort with the look of Europe with a modern flair.
Located on a quiet tree-lined street and within walking distance of Asilomar State Beach, Pebble Beach’s famed 17 Mile Drive and the Pacific Grove golf links, the flat is also a short 5-minute drive to the heart of downtown Pacific Grove, with antique shops, restaurants and boutiques to explore.
Large west-facing windows not only let in light, but also give visitors superb views of the Monterey Bay. During the winter months, migrating whales can be glimpsed on the waters of the bay, and any time of year, sunsets and night time vistas of twinkling lights around the bay add romance to the scene.
Beach daisies and juniper bushes surround the flat, in addition to the native live oaks and Monterey pines that frame the views.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.
Relax in front of the rustic stone gas fireplace with a 50” flat-screen HDTV positioned above. Bordered by a sectional queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 1-2 children and ottoman coffee table for additional seating, it’s perfect for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. For dinner or drinks, move either to the round dining room table with bay views, or take refreshments outside to a private deck with a gas barbecue grill and patio seating. There is a built-in wall cabinet with granite counter top that holds wine and champagne glasses for easy entertaining. The kitchen, which has state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and granite counter tops, includes convenient counter seating with bar stools, an easy way to enjoy breakfast, lunch or quick snacks.
Each bedroom offers a king bed with a memory foam topper that can be converted into twins. The bathroom is highlighted with tumbled travertine floors and complementary tile work in the shower-over-tub enclosure. Guest room #2 (not master) has a TV. Additional sleeping is available on the queen sleeper sofa for 1-2 children.
For additional accommodations: Monarch Suite and Regent Suite (#3639) are located on the same floor. Regent Suite has a mirrored twin above it, Admiral Suite (#3640). One, two or all three units can be rented separately or together.
There is a small garage for each unit and a covered one-car carport for Monarch Suite guests.

Beautiful house. Enjoyed the short stay. Walked to beach and aquarium. Perfect weather. Would stay here again. Nice finishes in the house.
Our family enjoyed the Bayview-by-the-Sea Monach suite very much. The accommodation was great for our family of four (adults) - the layout, the decoration, the cleanliness, the bedroom configuration optioins, the kitchen set up, the fireplace and the quiet neighbourhood were all great. We enjoyed the quiet location, the private deck, the gardens, simple access to the town and the ambience of tame wildlife (a family of young deer) roaming the nearby yards. The Monarch Butterfly sanctuary around the corner and the pedestrian running paths with fabulous views all made our stay very nice for all of us. Also the communication before our arrival, upon arrival and post visit from the host organization was clear, prompt and appreciated.
PROS: Beautifully decorated and furnished with a peep/peek view of the ocean (much appreciated) on a wonderfully quiet street in PG. Feels luxurious overall, very well stocked kitchen with good quality items, cute porch/grill area, easy access walking to Asilomar and PG Ocean area (gorgeous) as well as to PG downtown. Lots to do outdoors/nearby. If staying indoors, very up-to-date technology (digital TV with large number of channels, Xfinity movies, surround sound, etc). Very, very comfortable and luxurious feel overall, well appointed and attention to details. There is nothing missing that one could need and much attention to detail. Attentive staff that support the property.
CONS: The beds: For a luxuriously appointed condo, the beds are disappointingly not comfortable. Two twins put together for a King sized bed -- short length wise (given these are really twins) and with a uncomfortable "hump" in the middle where the twins are joined such that one needs to avoid that area. Beds are well appointed (in pillows and bedding), but the comfort for two is a bit disappointing given price of condo. We have stayed here twice, the first time the cleaning was not quite up-to-par, this time much improved/meets standards. Fireplace worked intermittently---did have quick response to our request to fix, but never fixed during our second stay. Icemaker is a bit awkward---ice constantly jams in the exit chute---but for such a sweet place, we can deal with intermittent fireplace and somewhat awkward icemaker. The attention to detail and accommodations are otherwise quite very special/wonderful if you're OK with the bed.
OVERALL: a beautiful property for which to stay, we do love it and wish we could live in it year round, except we would highly recommend replacing one of the bedrooms with a true King bed that is comfortable for couples on a romantic getaway. Love, love PG and this is definitely a nice property.
We showed up to a very clean condo, bottle of sparkling cider, and all of our special requests handled. It's always nice to have what you asked for actually done! I usually have a difficult time sleeping somewhere else but the beds were very comfortable.
This property was the perfect place for our Monterey area golf vacation. It was centrally located to our golf outings in Monterey and Carmel, and also close to many great restaurants in Pacific Grove, Carmel and Pebble Beach. We also cooked in several times, enjoying the well-appointed kitchen and dining area. The king bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and the fireplace cozy for the cool evenings and mornings. We appreciated being able to travel with our small dog, who was very comfortable there too!
We would highly recommend this rental and consider returning in the future.
This place was in a terrific location with only a short walk to the water. My wife absolutely loved this place. The surrounding neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. So much so that I actually saw a deer grazing right across the street. Pacific Grove is a great town with fantastic restaurants. This condo is definitely worth staying at.
This home was such a lovely surprise! Usually you rent a home and the kitchen is so poorly appointed you don't even want to cook. This kitchen had everything you could imagine and more! The entire home was very clean, well appointed, warm and comfortable...even the beds. We stayed here with another couple and it was more than enough room for 4 people. We would love to rent it again next time we're in the area.
