About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

Welcome to Oceanview Serenity! Home sleeps up to 4 guests including children.

Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

Oceanview Serenity has been recently updated and completely furnished with new beds, furniture and decor. We look forward to reading reviews from our first few sets of Guests to stay at this darling beach cottage. Be among the first to enjoy this delightful home!

A charming cottage with a stunning 180-degree view of the Monterey Bay offers the best of all worlds in Pacific Grove — close to the beach, but also an easy walk to downtown Pacific Grove, historic Cannery Row and other attractions.

The 930-square-foot pet-friendly home (one small dog up to 15lbs) is directly across the street from the beach and the Monterey Recreational Trail, and is just a few steps from spectacular Lover’s Point. The restaurants, galleries and shops of downtown Pacific Grove are just a 5-minute walk away, and there is also easy access to Asilomar, 17-Mile Drive, and the highly rated Pacific Grove Golf Links. It’s also a short walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or 10 minutes by car to downtown Monterey, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath home built in 1934 has been recently painted and redecorated to enhance its vintage charm. A brick pathway leads to the front door, past the adirondack chairs that are a perfect spot to sip morning coffee and drink in views of the bay at any hour of the day.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, 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.

Inside the home, a cozy living room and dining room feature large picture windows, taking advantage of the spectacular view, and guests will be able to see boats, birds, and even whales out on the water.

Beach-themed décor in soothing shades of blue, sand and driftwood brings the outdoors inside, harmonizing with the rustic living room that features a vaulted wood ceiling, 65" Ultra HDTV with a connected sound bar and blue ray DVD and a gas burning fireplace. Upholstered chairs and a comfortable sofa provide a place for conversation, reading or playing games, or just sitting and enjoying the bay vistas.

Hardwood floors and board-and-batten walls can be found throughout the home, as well as vintage lighting.

The sunny kitchen is also a pleasant reminder of past eras but enhanced with new appliances, including a gas cook top, wall oven, and dishwasher. The adjacent dining room table that seats six is also next to a large picture window.

The master bedroom features a queen bed and a large closet. A bathroom with combination tub/shower is adjacent to both bedrooms. The second bedroom contains a king bed that can be converted to two twins, as well as an attached bathroom with a shower.

Guests can also enjoy the large fenced backyard, where a gas grill and patio seating are perfect for al fresco dining. The outdoor space is sunny and protected, with views of the bay visible through the home’s picture windows.

At the rear of the house, a one-car garage offers space for parking a vehicle and for stowing beach gear. Additional parking is available on the street.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home with incredible views of Monterrey Bay. The living areas offer continual views of the kelp forests and sea otters, along with binoculars to zoom in on spouting whales. The fireplace took the chill off in the morning (a furnace is also available), and open windows kept the house comfortable later in the day. The kitchen is well furnished; we had breakfast, and half of our mid-day and evening meals there. Beds were comfortable, dressing closets very handy, and bathrooms were well stocked. The washer and dryer in the garage were appreciated. After a day of viewing tide pools, driving down PCH 1, going whale watching, or hiking around the bay, having tea in the living room and still enjoying the view is marvelous. Thank you for sharing your home.

Great location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

You can not beat the location of this house. You are directly across from the beach with amazing views while eating breakfast at the table, sitting on the couch in the living room, or in the chairs out front. Just a short drive from food, golf, and the aquarium. We would definitely stay here again if back in the area.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house is without a doubt the best home we have ever rented. It is small but has everything you need and your front yard is the Pacific Ocean. We will definitely be back.

Amazing Views and Super location

  • 5 of 5

It was such a nice spectacle views from this House. We walked every day along the path across the street and very good resturants within a few block. Perfect for two couples.

Pacific grove - awesome

  • 5 of 5

The location and view couldn't be any better. We sat on the chairs out front everyday. Everything is really comfortable and there is a lot of closet space too. It's an older house but very well maintained. Backyard is an added feature and the washer machine and dryer worked well too! I was happy hanging out at the house and taking walks from there. We took our little senior dog and she loved going across the street and exploring on the paths. Property managers are great! So close to anything you want to do. Walked to town & cannery row. Close to 17mile drive etc.
