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.

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!!!
Outstanding property and great customer service from Sanctuary. Second rental from them and will rent again. No negatIves. If you want to visit OG, Monterey or Carmel- a no brainer
Working with Sanctuary Vacation Rentals was extremely easy and the property we stayed at was very clean and fully stocked for all of our needs. The kitchen had all appliances and utensils imaginable, and the bathrooms had shampoo and body wash. Additionally, there was detergent and dryer sheets, which made washing clothes very convenient! The company provided many helpful notes throughout the renting process. My favorites were 1) a reminder email when the 2nd half of the payment was going to be auto drafted from my account. This was helpful because it was over a month since the booking, and I could have easily forgotten the auto-draft was about to occur. 2) Julia was extremely responsive and easy to work with. For example, we ended up arriving later than expected on our first day, and she made sure the porch lights were on for us. Overall great experience!
I rented this house for my parents, my sister and her husband, and my younger sister and her boyfriend for my wedding week so 6 adults total. We booked for 5 nights and had an incredible time. My husband and I stayed at another of Sanctuary's rental properties with his family just one street over so both families were able to walk back and forth to say hello and hang out.
Although I didn't stay the night at La Gloria I was over there frequently and my family said they absolutely loved it. They especially loved the kitchen and the coziness of the home. The double-sided fireplace was a nice touch and was definitely put to use as it was pretty chilly during our visit.
The house was very clean and organized and the location was perfect. You are within walking distance to many restaurants and coffee shops as well as the beach path.
The non-master rooms were a little on the small side especially if you have large suit cases but it wasn't that big of a deal. You also can't park in the garage but street parking is plentiful.
The Sanctuary staff was really easy to work with and very friendly. They are very prompt to reply to emails or phone calls. My sister ended up leaving a couple items behind and they were very helpful in getting them returned to her quickly.
I would definitely recommend La Gloria Cottage if you're planning a trip to the area. Can't wait to go back!
We have been coming to Pacific Grove for the last 20 years, but this was our first time renting a home here. What an experience! Knowing the area well, and having looked at potential 2nd homes, we knew exactly where this home was. La Gloria is located right off of the main road, Lighthouse, and is a gem! The owners have spared no expense. It is completely renovated with modern touches, but still have that "PG" cozy, warm feeling. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfy, kitchen has everything, plus little details such as day passes to Monterey Plaza Hotel Spa facilities, a bottle of wine, etc. we truly felt like we were locals here staying in this home.
