About Kevin & Vicky Delaney
We are Kevin and Vicky. It’s nice to meet you! Here’s a little bit about us… This is Kevin. I was born in San Francisco, lived in Ireland when I was young, but San Jose has been home for most of my life. I’m an avid reader, enjoy writing, and I love history. This is Vicky. I was born in Vietnam and I immigrated to the US with my family when I was 2 years old. I work in high-tech, love baking and traveling, and can be found at the gym regularly. Together, we love exploring new things. Whether it’s new foods, places to visit or experiences, we love the adventure of life. Most of all, we love time with each other, our kids, family and friends.
Kevin & Vicky Delaney purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Kevin & Vicky Delaney chose Pacific Grove
Pacific Grove is a charming town with wonderful restaurants, a beautiful coastline and the historic Cannery Row. And there’s plenty to do – sailing, whale watching, hiking, kayaking, cycling, and wonderful coastline pathways to stroll between the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Lover’s Point. Pacific Grove also has the historic literary appeal of being the home of John Steinbeck, American author and Pulitzer Prize winner.
What makes this Cottage unique
Besides being charming and beautiful, the cottages are distinctly unique having once been the home of author John Steinbeck. There is a rich and wonderful history to these 100-year-old cottages. When Steinbeck resided here he formulated the plot of The Grapes of Wrath, and wrote several books including The Sea of Cortez. This is the home he shared with his second wife, Gwyn Conger, who would become the inspiration for the lead antagonist, Kate Trask, in his epic novel, East of Eden. In a letter to a friend, Steinbeck wrote of the cottages, “It is a pleasant little house, and we miss it… You’ll find you get a lot of thinking done in that house.” ' (from John Steinbeck, A Life in Letters). We are excited to share this wonderful piece of history with you and know you will enjoy your stay.

Pleasant stay in a historic cottage
Great location and good service. A few recommendations: replace the current old windows with new ones so they can be opened to air the rooms, install a bar and a mat in the shower to prevent the elderly from slipping in the bathtub. We enjoyed the cottage very much and would highly recommend it.
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. Parking was street only but we had no problem finding a space.
Amazing enchanting piece of history!
We loved every minute at this charming and enchanting cottage. We lived like a local. Walked to restaurants. Made supper in our historic kitchen, It was a delightful balm for the soul.
Cozy Cottage - All you need!
This home was perfect for our little family, a toddler and infant. The bed was very comfortable and the room had a fold out couch that was perfect for our toddler. We liked the ambiance of the fireplace. The location was very convenient. We walked to the Aquarium and Cannery Row, with a stroller; going down was better than the walk back but we made it each time. Kevin and Vicky were very helpful and provided thoughtful information to make our stay easy. Would highly recommend!
I agree with Steinbeck
I agree with Steinbeck that the cottage encourages reflective thought. Great architectural spacial planning as well. Nothing wasted here.
Pacific Grove offers an unparalleled quality of life. Sharing borders with the Monterey Bay, City of Monterey, Pacific Ocean, and the Del Monte Forest, our town offers breathtaking views and recreational activities. The City provides services to the community including: excellent fire, emergency, and ocean rescue services; an award-winning natural history museum; the lowest crime rate of any city in Monterey County; a nationally-recognized 18-hole golf course; a monarch butterfly habitat sanctuary; sandy beaches; and, the oldest continuously-operating lighthouse on the west coast. 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)
