About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 4 Baths

No need to fight over who gets the ocean view in this fabulous 6-bedroom, 4-bath home on a private, rocky beach! With 270 degrees of blue-water views, four of the bedrooms have full views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay. The fifth and sixth bedrooms have a quiet, courtyard view just in case somebody doesn't like to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, or watch the moon sinking into the sea at night.

Our home, known since 1929 as Rocky Shores, is minutes from Carmel and Cannery Row in Monterey, and Pebble Beach is our neighbor. We operate under Pacific Grove's short-term rental license #83.

We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen - and the cook gets an ocean view, too. Dining table seats 10, 14 with extension. Foosball, pinball, ping pong, Legos, art and drawing supplies, puzzles, games and other toys for the kids. Steinway grand piano for the musically inclined. Off-street parking for six cars is available.

Trip Advisor has just chosen Pacific Grove as one of the top 12 scenic destinations in the United States! And there is no more beautiful home base than Rocky Shores to explore our wonderful town. Surf, snorkel, or comb the beautiful beaches and coves. Make S'mores at a bonfire on our secluded beach.

Nice restaurants just two blocks away. Fabulous Pacific Grove golf course is across the street. Downtown Pacific Grove is 1.5 miles away, with movie theater, farmers' market, restaurants, coffee houses, antiques, shops, bakeries and natural history museum. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and the American Tin Cannery outlets are about 2 miles away, as is Monterey's Fishermen's Wharf. Wine tasting in Carmel Valley is 30 minutes away. Big Sur is about 45 minutes away. John Steinbeck Museum is about 35 minutes away. We have just installed a whole-house Rainsoft water conditioning system, as well as a triple-filtration, reverse osmosis drinking water fountain in the kitchen. No need to lug bottled water here! Our home is perfect for your family reunion, corporate retreat, girls' vacation, or romantic hideaway!

About Kirstie

My family has been blessed to spend 27 years in one of only two beachfront homes in Pacific Grove. You will love staying here, too! Our short-term rental license is #83.

Kirstie purchased this house in 1989

Why Kirstie chose Central Coast California

We bought our home because it was the only home directly on the beach in all of Pacific Grove. It was extremely private, with a golf course across the street, State Park surrounding us, and the blue Pacific as our backyard. We have a full acre of private property. Another residence has since been built next door, on its own acre of land. A portion of our stone driveway is shared by both homes.

What makes this house unique

I love to look out my window and see the full moon casting sparkling light onto the dark waves as it sinks to the horizon. On clear evenings, the sunsets are spectacular. The morning sunrise casts a pink glow on the waves. And when it is foggy, there is a magic about the property that is enhanced with a roaring wood blaze in the fireplace, or a glass of wine in the hot tub.

Family of 12

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 had a wonderful time of relaxation and fun. The house is perfect for 6 couples and you could not ask for a better location. All the beds were very comfortable and each room had special touches just for Kirstie's guests. Our kids were in awe as they drove up to this amazing home and location. The views from the house, the sound of the ocean waves and the warm/comfortable atmosphere made for a perfect weekend. We will always remember this time of reunion we shared with our children and spouses in your amazing home. Thank you for being a blessing to us.

Owner's Response: I love to host families who put together their reunions at my home. Life is so hurried nowadays, and whenever folks can slow down, watch the waves, play some games by the fireplace, maybe even have a pinball tournament.... it warms my heart! Thank you for taking the time to write a review for me, Kathy. Please come back again some day!

Wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful girl's weekend at Kirstie's beautiful home. Everything you could want in a rental is at this home, there is not a better location in the area. All of us remarked over and over again about the views (pictures can't do them justice), and we are already trying to figure out when we can come back again. Thank you Kirstie for everything and hope to see you again soon!!!

Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Second time we have rented this huge lovely home to gather our family together in a spectacular setting with recreation available for all ages. All the family enjoys the home being situated right on the ocean, taking walks and seeing the local sites. The home itself has a gigantic front/main room overlooking the Pacific, a super playroom for the grandkids with a pinball machine, costumes and board games, a movie theatre area with a huge TV screen and tons of DVDs, up to date bathrooms and a fully appointed kitchen. Every detail has been thought will not be disappointed.

Stop Looking Already!!! You cannot top this place on the entire Monterey Peninsula.

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely magnificent. Being familiar with the area, but returning for a week's visit with friends for the first time in years, the location was simply perfect as a launching point for activities at Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur, not to mention that the specific area at the northern tip of Asilomar Beach in Pacific Grove is simply spectacular in its own right. There were a couple of days during our trip that we decided to just stay at the house, build a fire in the fireplace in the great room overlooking the ocean, and spend our time watching the waves, otters, seals, and sunsets. This house faces directly west; it is also directly on the water. You literally cannot get any closer to the Pacific! On top of that, the real estate that this house occupies is magnificent in its sweeping views from Carmel to Pacific Grove along the ocean. There are large rock formations at water's edge that add to the magic of ocean-viewing at this particular location. Also, the beautiful walking trails of Asilomar Beach are steps away. We also walked to the nearby Pt. Pinos lighthouse for a tour as well as the Monarch butterfly sanctuary just minutes away on foot.

The house is very casual which fit our group perfectly. The owner, Kirstie, goes to great lengths to ensure a quality stay, as well she should given the expense involved, but she really does go the extra mile to make you feel right at home. The house is very spacious for 8 people (4 couples in our case) with plenty of kitchen space for cooking; all the utensils and pots and pans are right there for use along with an outdoor grill. There is a TV room with a large screen TV and tons of DVDs, BluRays and Laserdiscs; a pinball machine; a ping pong table; foosball; and high power binoculars for viewing the rafts of sea otters that inhabit the kelp forest just yards from the shore's edge. The sunsets were different every night and not to be missed! We planned our activities around making sure that we were home for the hour surrounding sunset. A great storm hit the area on our last full day, giving us an incredible display of the sea's fury with huge crashing waves and gigantic sea sprays. It was better than an IMAX movie!

I have no legitimate complaints about the property. The other three couples in our group all echoed this sentiment. Maybe if the house could be turned 3 degrees clockwise so that it is EXACTLY facing west toward the sunsets over the water, but that's about it! Lol.

Best vacation spot for making memories of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

This note is long overdue-life has been a whirlwind since we left your lovely home in Pacific Grove!

We all want to thank you so much for our very special time in Pacific Grove. Your home is all that we hoped it would be, and we loved our time there. Our daughter's wedding on the beach in Carmel worked out perfectly, and the fog even cooperated that morning, and stayed away!

Your home was fully appointed with everything we could need, and then some! We all loved having the ocean right out back, and could easily sit watching the surf forever! We hope to come back for another stay sometime. Thank you as well for the bottle of bubbly to help us celebrate such a happy occasion.
