Restaurants, shops and art galleries are just steps away from this historic house in the heart of Pacific Grove, a lovely two-story residence that offers easy access to all the best that “America’s Last Hometown” has to offer.
The 1,500 square feet pet-friendly home, a winner of the Pacific Grove Heritage Design Award, has been extensively remodeled so that while it retains its gracious past, it also offers modern conveniences at its spectacular location. Just a 3 minute walk to award-winning Passion Fish Restaurant and a 10 minute walk to the beach or to the butterfly groves, it’s also only 5 minutes by car to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach.
A brick pathway leads visitors underneath a magnificent Monterey pine and up to the front porch which offers seating on a beautiful Butler plantation bench. The entry way opens into the cozy living room, a perfect place for conversation or watching TV on a 50-inch HDTV.
Casual with an upscale elegance and earth-tone colors, the décor is embellished with coastal touches, and the feeling is enhanced by comfortable red leather couches surrounding a gas fireplace, which has an additional hearth on the other side facing the kitchen. Hardwood floors can be found throughout the ground floor, which includes the living room, kitchen, and dining room.
The large kitchen includes newer appliances, a double kitchen sink with a pewter goose neck faucet, and a combination microwave/convection oven. A central island offers an additional small sink and counter seating for two. White tile counter tops and whitewashed cabinetry add a contemporary rustic touch, and the adjacent dining room offers seating for eight at a beautiful Geranium leg table with optional extension leaf.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renowned 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.
A private patio enclosed with a wood fence is accessible via French doors from the kitchen. Potted succulents grace the outdoor space, which offers seating as well as a gourmet gas grill.
The second floor of the home includes a master bedroom suite and two additional bedrooms. Vaulted ceilings lend the rooms a spacious feeling and plenty of natural light enters through the many windows and skylights on this floor.
The master bedroom includes a queen size knotty pine sleigh bed, a 36-inch HDTV, a large closet with mirrored doors, and an outdoor balcony with bistro seating that overlooks downtown Pacific Grove, a perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The adjoining bath, outfitted with limestone tile and brushed nickel fixtures, includes a tub with hand held sprayer, a separate shower stall with a height-adjustable shower head, and a private commode.
The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has a two twin beds that can be converted to a king as needed. The second bath in the hallway has a combination tub/shower with height-adjustable shower head, as well as marble tile throughout and brushed nickel fixtures.

This was one of the best homes we have ever stayed in. Location was perfect. Home was just the right size, not to big but perfect for a family vacation. Kitchen was more than adequate, beds were comfortable and living room was very comfortable. Location across the street from the best coffee shop in town was an added benefit.
This a great home for a family or a few couples - close to great dinning (walking distance) and just a short drive to Carmel, Monterey and the outstanding 17 Mile Drive tough Pebble Beach. They are open to pets and our dog enjoyed her stay as well - especially the ball playing on Carmel Beach.
Very clean and everything you would want to prepare a special meal in the kitchen. The bedrooms are decorated out of a designer magazine - lovely.
My only issue is having to pay a cleaning fee for each night you stay seems unreasonable. I rent a home on VRBO and we charge one fee for cleaning if it is 3 nights or two weeks.
Again - the stay, the home and location were the best!
Although the weather was really bad during our visit, the house was awesome! It was well decorated and well equipped. The furniture was very comfortable. The televisions, entertainment system and internet were great. The yard is very small, but serviceable. The location is terrific. We couldn't have asked for a better rental.
We were thrilled with our choice to rent this home in Pacific Grove. Other than the construction occurring on the street by the driveway which made it challenging when first arriving, everything was spectacular! The home was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The entire renting experience was super easy and we had no issues at all with the home. There was such a nice greeting card welcoming us to the home along with wine and cheese. The house was very clean and decorated just beautifully. It was so nice that everything was labeled with instructions making it easy for us to use the electronics and fireplace. We were in town for the Big Sur Half Marathon and this home was a perfect location. The race actually ran right by the main street where the house is located off of- which made it perfect for those non-runners in our group that wanted to spectate. The town had such great coffee shops and restaurants and it was so nice just to be able to walk to breakfast, dinner, etc. I would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again. Thanks for making us feel so welcome in your home!
My family travels to Pacific Grove once a year for a mini vacation/birthday celebration. We also like to attend the annual Halloween party at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This house was by far the nicest rental we have ever rented in PG! The location, size and layout was perfect. The house is decorated with tranquility in mind. The day we arrived the street was closed due to road construction, but we were allowed to slip by the road blocks and park in the driveway. Once parked, you will not need your car again ... everything is within walking distance. We will be back!!!
