Girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the house. I found it to be in the perfect location, just off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy everything. The house was tastefully decorated and I will recommend this place for sure ( I already have) There were lots of windows and bright sunshine coming in. The butterfly sanctuary was next door and the backyard had lots of them flying around. I brought my dog and found the house was great for pets.

I am giving it 3.5 stars because there are a few items that I would alter.

1: we were three adult women and the second bedroom had a daybed w/trundle bed; it was very uncomfortable not to mention extremely noisy. The room it was in was very nice and plenty of room for two twin beds or even another queen.

2: We were active during the day and enjoyed the evening relaxing with a fire, wine and hoping to watch a movie. We were unable to decipher the how to operate the DVR. There were 5 remotes on the table and a mess of wires behind ??? I would suggest keeping it more simple or having detailed instruction near the TV. Needless to say we never watched a movie.

3: I have a rental property and have visited many others. When you pay a cleaning fee you should not have to remove the sheets from he bed and place the towels in the washing machine or take the garbage out to the cans. When we arrived we had to put the sheets on the day/trundle bed. They knew there were three of us and that should have been taken care of. It was kind of like summer camp.

Other than that I really liked the house and would return but not to sleep on that daybed.

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place, literally on the back side of the Monarch butterfly sanctuary and close to everything. Only downsides for us were (1) multiple remotes for the TV and no instructions (we gave up after a while) and (2) high late check-out fee. We were charged a substantial fee to check out at 3 instead of 11...worth it to spend more time enjoying this wonderful house, but seems excessive, especially since we rented the house at the last minute and it probably would have been vacant- instead of rented- for four days. Late checkout would have been a nice courtesy.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Located in a nice area of Pacific Grove, Ellie's Place is updated and nicely furnished and equipped! It has a big yard that is great for pets. You can see the Monarch Butterflies from the back yard.

Cute House, Great Location, but ...

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Great Pacific Grove location. Easy walk into town or to the beach. Quiet, private. The house is cute with plenty of off street parking. Kitchen was well appointed. Washer and dryer off master bath.

Cons: The beds are not comfortable - time for an upgrade. The yard is huge, fenced, and pets are welcome but it is not really usable. One patio table located off the front porch, 4 chairs. No other outdoor furniture or patio space. Biggest con - the house was really dirty. While the countertops and sinks were wiped down, it was evident that the floors had not been mopped in a very long time - white socks and bare feet turned black just walking around the house. Cobwebs hanging inside and outside the windows. Heat vent black with dirt. Some dishes/utensils were dirty. Some walls and baseboards were spattered with gunk. The windows were dirty. We were disappointed, especially since we were paying premium rent during Concours week.

That said, Monterey Rentals was extremely responsive when we notified them of the problems and emailed pictures. Kyle sent a housekeeper over within a few hours. She cleaned things up enough for us to finish our stay; however, the house needs a THOROUGH top to bottom deep cleaning that couldn't be done by one woman in a hours time. They also refunded us a nights rent, which was appropriate and appreciated. Ellie's Place has a lot of potential - someone just needs to keep a closer eye on things. We would recommend the home, under the assumption that Monterey Rentals is going to follow through and address the cleanliness issues

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend away from the stresses of everyday life. Ellie's place was absolutely perfect! It is beautifully decorated to inspire a feeling of both peacefull getaway and home. We felt extremely comfortable in this space. Not to mention the place is accepting of our furry friends as well. Our canine companion had no trouble fitting in and enjoying the fully fenced yard. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and will miss Ellie's Place.

Cute, comfortable house in a peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples and a dog, and we found the house to be clean, comfortable and quiet. We were attending a wedding at Asilomar and it was a pleasant 20 minute walk to get there. We also checked out the butterfly sanctuary next door and saw a single Monarch butterfly, I guess it's still a little early for the mass migration but at least we saw one! Pacific Grove is a pleasant little town with lots of options for dining and a nice place to walk around.

Our dog loved the huge back yard, which was extremely dry and dusty, but that's the general state of affairs in this part of the world at this time of year.

The bathrooms and kitchen were modern and comfortable with lots of natural light in the kitchen.

A few minor complaints: it was a bit of a pain to have to go to the rental office to retrieve and drop off the keys... could you maybe put a lockbox somewhere on the property? Also, the beds weren't super comfortable and my partner and I had to sleep on the twin beds in the second bedroom, not my favorite arrangement. There is plenty of space for a big bed and a sofa!
