Central Coast California House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 1 bath house

Enjoy a wonderful Pacific Grove cottage. The house is ideally located in a great neighborhood so that you can park your car and enjoy walks to downtown restaurants and shops, Lover’s Point Beach and Park, Asilomar State Beach, the Monarch Butterfly Grove, Point Pinos Lighthouse and other sites all with minutes of our home. Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium

and the Pacific Grove Golf Links are just a five-minute drive. We are under a mile from the Spanish Bay Gate to the Pebble Beach resort and golf courses.

The home offers two bedrooms (queen bed in each), 1 bathroom with a tub/shower, full kitchen with a sunny eating area for family meals, living room with a pullout couch. We also offer a detached bonus room for extra space across the patio for a slightly higher rate.

We have a wonderful sunny yard with a lawn, garden, brick patio, and outdoor furniture. The private and enclosed yard is perfect for kids. Enjoy Pacific Grove living in your very own backyard.

The home is tastefully furnished and decorated. This is our vacation getaway, too, and you are dealing with our family and not a rental agency, so much pride and care is taken in the home.

No smoking and no pets allowed.

Winter/spring is a great time to visit. We are very conveniently located to all of these events in the area:

February: ATT Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (rates slightly higher)

June: Monterey Blues Festival

September: The Monterey Jazz Festival; Pacific Grove Triathalon

About Ken Lippi

Our family has owned this home since 2002 and it is filled with the happy memories of stays with our children, family, friends, and the many guests who have enjoyed the home. This is our second home so we do everything we can to keep the house and gardens well-maintained. It is a dream come true for us to have this 'little slice of heaven'. We pride ourselves on our many return customers and that we appeal to families with children, retired couples, friends rendezvousing on the Monterey Penisinsula, or conference goers at the Asilomar Conference Center. We strive to provide a charming and comfortable Pacific Grove cottage at an affordable price.

Why Ken Lippi chose Central Coast California

We immediately fell in love with the bright, cheery feeling of the home, the character that comes from an early 1920's structure, the lovely and sunny (and for PG, unique) street to street lot, yard and garden, and the location central to everything. We also loved the idea of the detached guest room allowing privacy for our parents and friends who may be staying with us.

What makes this house unique

The house, while roomy and comfortable, is also a classic Pacific Grove cottage. It takes us back to days when Pacific Grove was noted as a summer colony for travelers from all over the west coast. We love its central location allowing us to walk to all of the sites, especially the Monarch Butterfly Grove, Lovers Point Beach, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and to the downtown shops and restaurants. The yard offers lots of enjoyable outdoor living space, especially for those fall and early winter months when the weather is outstanding.

We believe we offer a great value, providing charming accommodations at a very competitive price.

Lovely relaxing cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This was the last three days of our holiday around California and Arizona, and what a wonderfully relaxing three days they were. Our two teenage sons really enjoyed the cottage, especially the 16 year old who had his own place in the guest house across the back yard. The cottage is clean and well decorated, and has a great beach resort feel to it. Lots to do apart from relaxing and this is a good location for exploring the local attractions. The best of which for us was the 17 mile drive, which I would recommend doing towards sunset. Lovely walk into town to the shops and restaurants, and there is a very friendly feel to the whole place. The owner was very helpful, and has every right to be proud of such a wonderful holiday home. The only down side is that were only there for three days. We will definitely be back sometime, with or without the kids.

Great location, beautiful little cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our daughter and her family stayed here for a get-away in June. The main cottage was great for our daughter's family and we had rented the back studio apt. for ourselves, very nice enclosed backyard patio between the two. The only reason for the good vs excellent would be the sofa bed in the studio was less than comfortable. I would really recommend just putting a regular bed in that room. Other than this, all was very nice and you can see the pride of the owners here!

Owner's Response: We so appreciate your kind words! We love renting to families and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks so much for the feedback on the guest cottage bed. You input is important to us and, as a result, we will be placing a comfortable new mattress on the bed. Thanks also for noticing our pride of ownership. This house has given us many happy memories and we are glad to share them with our guests.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 young adult children stayed at this cottage and guest house for 3 days. The cottage was quite clean and well equipped. We loved Pacific Grove! The downtown is full inviting restaurants, cafe and shops. The cottage was a short walk to the beach and the towns of Monterey and Carmel were only a few minutes away. We found there was so much to do that we will have to return. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

Charming and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

While we have plenty of hotel points and could have stayed in Monterey proper, we much prefer to travel and experience the area as locals. The location and amenities of this charming cottage allowed us to feel right at home! Just what the description states - clean, comfortable, great location. We walked to the waterfront and into town. Great restaurants for any meal are nearby. Short drive to aquarium, which is a must! Cooked our breakfast every day which saved $ to explore dinner options! Because we had more traveling ahead, the washer/dryer was a welcome bonus. As a family of three, this was the perfect place for us!

Perfect PG Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything promised and then some. Unlike many VRBOs, I'd say if anything this place is even more charming than the pictures indicate. We spent about a week with the whole family and loved just hanging out in the living room and wonderful back yard area.Great home away from home.

Delightful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent several nights in this delightful cottage. It is beautifully maintained and the owners have done everything to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The cottage is very nicely decorated and has extremely comfortable furniture. The linens are good quality and the mattresses in both rooms were great. It was cold (50s) when we were there and the heater works wonderfully. There is a beautiful backyard with a private studio apartment in the back of the property. We encountered a small technology problem but the owner was easily accessible and we were able to immediately solve the problem. These owners truly want their guests to have an outstanding experience.
