Overview

About the property

Newly renovated and the perfect home-away-from-home for your next beach vacation

This darling cottage, known as Little Lighthouse, is the lower cottage in a two-unit, WWII-era Carriage House. She has stood through over seventy years of history, and gathered stories in her rooms of love, friendship and family. After months of renovation, this lower cottage, Little Lighthouse, is ready for rent. It sits in the beautiful retreat neighborhood of Pacific Grove, and is ready to call home for your next beach vacation.

The quaint downtown of Pacific Grove is just a six minute stroll down the street to the right as you exit the front door. A less than 15-minute walk in the other direction takes you to historic Cannery Row and The Monterey Bay Aquarium. Under the canopy of a stately old cypress tree, she is a resting place of tranquility, cool breezes, and is ready to embrace a host of new memories.

As you walk through the garden and into the front door, you are greeted by a cottage filled with warmth and charm. The beautiful living room is filled with cozy places to relax. There is a queen sleeper sofa, two conversation chairs, a leather reading chair, a warm electric fireplace, and a flatscreen TV.

In the quaint bedroom, there is a french door leading out to the private garden. The bedroom has a queen bed, a vanity area, flat screen TV and a cozy electric fireplace.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy cooking and dining in. An old farm table is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee.

The beautiful bathroom features white greek volakas marble in the shower and victorian flower hex tiles on the floor.

The front yard offers an outdoor sitting area with beautiful ocean views, and an alfresco dining table under a canopy of cafe lights.

Guest Access:

Guests of Little Lighthouse Cottage will access the house through a keyless entry system. You will be given a guest door code, specific to your rental dates, that will be used by all guests in your group during your stay. This allows for added safety and piece of mind. There is no need to carry a key or be worried of getting locked out.

For guests looking to accommodate a larger party, Little Lighthouse Cottage can be booked with the upper main cottage, and can sleep a total of nine guests. Please visit the listing for more information:

About Gary, Lynea, Jim, Stacey, & Amy

Meet the family! ... Gary (Dad), Jim (Stacey's Husband), Stacey (Daughter), Lynea (Mom), and Amy (Daughter). We have always had a deep love of family togetherness and making memories. We bought this darling carriage house together in 2014 and have poured all our love and care into renovating it—to create a special retreat not only for our family, but for yours. We believe that memories shared are some of the most precious times in life. Please come for a visit and share some of yours with us!

While we do not live on the premises, guests can reach our family with any questions throughout their stay, by simply calling or texting any one of us. A detailed contact list is located in the cottage.

Why Gary, Lynea, Jim, Stacey, & Amy chose Central Coast California

The location has something to offer everyone—As stated earlier, the quaint downtown of Pacific Grove is just a six minute stroll down the street to the right as you exit the front door. A less than 15-minute walk in the other direction takes you to historic Cannery Row and The Monterey Bay Aquarium. Historic downtown Monterey and Fisherman's Wharf offer a peak into the past and several dining options. The beautiful beach and the Monterey Coastal Trail are two blocks down the hill from the cottage. Hikers, runners, and bikers can enjoy miles of trails that lead to Asilomar State Beach, Carmel, the Big Sur coastline, and beyond.

What makes this cottage unique

This wonderful house is the perfect place to come and enjoy a vacation with friends and family. There are two cottages within the Carriage House that can be rented together to allow for togetherness, but also allow for times of separation. With so many beautiful outdoor spaces as well, families and friends can find a variety of places in and around the cottages to spend special and relaxing times together.

Perfect cottage in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the little cottage and we plan to make our third stay next year. The location is a half mile to the aquarium and downtown Pacific Grove. Close to the water/beach paved path. Inside it has everything you need to enjoy your stay. I definitely recommend staying here.

Very quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 3 nights at this charming cottage and wanted to comment on how great it was. Really enjoyed the outdoor paver patio with the pretty lights, so nice to have an outdoor space! It would have been nice to have a fire in the fire pit. If you are renting this cottage be sure to bring some firewood! Also enjoyed the quaint cottage, it was just like the pictures and it was so cozy. and spotless. We prepared our breakfast at the cottage each morning, then took off to go kayaking, or to ride our bikes. The cottage is perfectly located for any activity you may want, it also has a nicely stocked kitchen with everything we needed. . Thank you for having a french press and coffee, we enjoyed it very much. We absolutely loved our time here, thank you!

Excellent Little Hideaway, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

What a great little place - we visited for just two nights with my two young girls (8 & 6), and accommodations for four people were tight, but still comfortable, with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The fact that we could walk right to the end of the street and see the bay (and seals!), then walk just a few minutes more and be at the Aquarium and shops/restaurants, was awesome. We would definitely recommend, and look forward to visiting again!

As advertised and more

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very nice and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The cottage was beautifully decorated, creating an ideal environment for two. It is in the perfect location - easy walking distance to Cannery Row, restaurants, downtown Pacific Grove, Monterey Bay, and a short driving distance to all the area's attractions. it had everything we needed for a relaxing few days away from everyday life: a quiet neighborhood and a comfortable bed that made sleeping very easy; a well equipped kitchen (thanks for the coffee); wifi and cable television. All the amenities of modern life but in a charming cottage near the sea.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

You know you've picked a winner when it is the one you'd choose all over again. Two blocks from the best part of the coast line, half a mile to downtown Pacific Grove, same to the aquarium. Very cute inside. Only missing a hot tub. One suggestion would be a great down comforter for the bed. Wonderful decor!

We are known for our small-town hospitality and friendliness in a place we simply call 'P.G.' (from The City of Pacific Grove website)
