About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, Rental License #0057


Our family has been visiting Pacific Grove for years. Each time we would rent a different home hoping to find the one we would want to come back to each year. We were always disappointed. Finally, we decided to buy a house ourselves, fix it up and offer the level of cleanliness, comfort and style we had searched for all those years. We now offer that home for your enjoyment!

This lovely historic Victorian home has been nicely updated while retaining the charm and classy beach theme setting you want when staying in Pacific Grove. From the plush towels and bedding to the 42' HD Sony Bravia flat screen television with Blu-Ray DVD you will not be disappointed. We have truly tried to think of everything to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

This home is only a short walk to renown Lover's Point and the oceanfront biking/walking trail which will take you to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. You can also travel the short 1.2 miles to Asilomar Beach with its sand dunes and crashing waves. Golfers will love the close proximity to the Pacific Grove Golf Links as well as Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay.

Come home after a day at the beach, golf course or Aquarium to sit on the cozy front porch and enjoy the afternoon sun while sipping on your favorite beverage. You can enjoy a home cooked meal at the comfortable dining room table or walk around the corner to award winning restaurants and all the shops and coffee houses Pacific Grove has to offer. With this home's location, you can literally park the car and leave it parked your entire visit.

Renting our wonderful home also means you will also enjoy 2 free Monterey Bay Aquarium passes (an appx. $100 per day value!). These passes allow you complete in and out privileges at the Aquarium during your entire stay with members only early entry during certain dates and a 10% discount on all gift shop purchases. Best of all, you don't have to wait in a long line when you use the members' only entrance!

Please contact us with any questions you may have. This is our own personal vacation home, so no detail has been spared. Our goal is for you to come back to this home each and every time you visit Pacific Grove.

***Note: We are sorry but due to a severe cat allergy in our family, we cannot rent to persons who own cats - even outdoor cats. We apologize for any inconvenience, but it is a very serious allergy that can be life threatening.

About Yvette

We are a family of four who enjoy having a very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished home. We have always loved Pacific Grove and believe it to be one of the best vacation spots in the country. We purchased this home in 2009 and spent a year fixing it up. We were so tired of arriving at homes we had rented from pictures on the internet only to be extremely disappointed by the lack of maintenance, care, cleanliness and attention to detail - not to mention location. We know you will love this home as much as we do as soon as you set foot inside. We truly believe the quality of the home you rent can make or break your vacation. Our goal is for you to come back to our home year after year.

Yvette purchased this house in 2009

Why Yvette chose Central Coast California

This is hands down the best location Pacific Grove has to offer! You can walk or bike to everything! Beach, golf course, park, Monterey Bay Aquarium, shopping, coffee, restaurants, grocery store, etc. We wanted a location where we could park our car and leave it the entire trip plus have a central location to traveling anywhere on the central coast. Now we have it! We believe we are as close as you can get to Lover's Point before the streets get crowded and noisy with difficult parking. Access is a breeze to this home.

What makes this house unique

The charm of a truly historic Pacific Grove Victorian home with the comforts of modern day living. Many higher end furniture pieces and beach theme furnishings, custom paint and blinds, stainless steel kitchen appliances, walk to everything the area has to offer, 2 free Monterey Bay Aquarium passes good during your entire stay, instantaneous hot water heater, whole house water softener, fully stocked laundry area, books, puzzles/games, cable with On Demand and pay per view, 42' HD Sony Bravia TV, off or on street parking - need we go on?!

Great home! Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

A very wonderful experience. The home is cozy and incredibly clean. Super welcoming to families, stacked with kid plates, utensils and even a little kids desk that we now have to duplicate at home. The grounds are well kept and everything functions well. We were able to walk to the local restaurants and enjoy a peaceful neighborhood. We would love to stay again!

Maybe the best

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out with this one. This beautiful little cottage in a prime Pacific Grove location must book up far in advance. This is truly one of the very best VRBO experiences we've had. Not only was property better than expected, communication and booking process with the owners was seamless. We loved it and we'll definitely be back with kids in tow!

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at your house! It was the perfect size for our family of four and was very clean and well equipped. We loved that it was walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the ocean. It was also conveniently located for visiting Monterey Aquarium and touring 17-Mile Scenic Drive. The Aquarium Passes were an added bonus! Thanks for making this an easy and pleasant experience all around.

Homey. Great location. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, this wonderful cottage felt like a home away from home. Very well supplied with anything one might need, in a super location where one can walk all over town and leave the car behind. Great outdoor space for outdoor dining and relaxing. Would recommend to anyone who may want to visit Pacific Grove.

Great House for Families!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus 2 tween-age kids had a wonderful stay in this house. It is within walking distance to so much--ice cream parlor, restaurants, beach. We were well located for trips to Point Lobos, the Elkhorn Slough, and the aquarium. We loved having a king bed and 2 twins. Our kids are older and don't want to share a bed anymore (boy/girl). The Wifi in the house was fantastic for kids and all of their devices. We appreciated the beach towels and chairs. The aquarium passes were a big cost-saver for us. And the extra half bath was wonderful!! We spent every evening on a teach tide pooling and getting out our spare energy. Yvette was great at communicating. The house binder had excellent info in it. We would definitely return here.

Will Definitely Return!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a number of accommodations over the years in Monterey and Pacific Grove and this is one of the best. We will definitely hope to return in the future! There are a lot of reviews, so here are a few things that I thought you may be interested in knowing:


- very clean

- excellent location - very close to downtown pacific grove, big playground for all age kids, lovers point beach park

- supplies are included - you don't have to bring your own soaps, tin foil etc.

- easy instructions and check out

- excellent kitchen

- very nice toys & kid accommodations

- everything worked without issues (heating, wifi, plumbing etc)

- nicely maintained property including bathrooms and outside areas

items to be aware of:

- like most homes in the area, it is an older home and floors and doors creak and it isn't very soundproof - so if you have a light napper you'll need to be fairly quiet.

- Twin beds were comfortable beds, just to note they are creaky as well (the cover but also the frame) which probably won't bother children.

- In the front bedroom (twin room) you can hear noise from the street when folks park in front of the house. If you park there it will cut down in the issue a bit.

Overall this is a wonderful property and we had a very pleasant visit and will look forward to returning!
