The Perfect Respite
The Perfect Respite
We just returned from a 3-night stay at Hank and Lori's Pacific Grove house. The house was very comfortable and is the perfect location for enjoying walks along the path that leads to Lover's Point. There are an abundance of great little restaurants in the neighborhood. Our two favorites are Holly's Lighthouse Cafe (breakfast) and il Vecchio (dinner). Guest passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium was an added plus. The house is comfortably furnished with adequate amounts of linens and kitchen wares to make your stay comfortable. The Monarch butterfly decorations throughout the house were a whimsical touch.

We should have stayed longer! Great location with easy walk to the aquarium. The kids loved walking past the seals and we had a short drive down to see a wonderful sunset. The aquarium passes were a huge benefit, as it meant we could spend a little time there over two days and the kids didn't get exhausted. The house completely met our needs, was comfortable, and looks exactly like you see in the pictures. Hank and Lori were very flexible and allowed us to stay as late as we wanted on the day we left. They also accomodated all my questions. Very nice! We hope to come back again soon.

We had the perfect weekend in Pacific Grove. The weather was excellent, we sat and enjoyed the backyard patio all three afternoons. The location is ideal, one block from the running/biking trail by the bay. We enjoyed morning runs, afternoon walks, and evening fires. It was nice to cook in and enjoy relaxing at home. We hope to be back soon.

A comfy and convenient place!
A comfy and convenient place!
This lovely rental is just as described and so comfortable and convenient. The owners were wonderfully responsive to our needs. We were with our toddler grandson; the yard was lovely and safe for him. The children's videos were perfect and gave the adults a great break from toddlerhood. There is an abundance of clean, comfy seating in the large living room with a view of the bay. The aquarium passes were an awesome value. I was able to go with my grandson for several days while his parents went kayaking, hiking, etc. We appreciated all the little supplies in the kitchen that are so nice when flying and staying for just a few days. Pacific Grove is awesome and this home is in the middle of it all!

Pacific Grove Home

My daughter, son-in-law and I spent 3 wonderful days in this home which was located half-way between Cannery Row and Lover's Point, and we walked to each on the wonderful trail along the ocean. The home was very comfortable (especially the beds) and we enjoyed grilling steaks one night on the patio. We also enjoyed the view of the ocean from the large living room windows. We certainly recommend the home to anyone who wants to stay in Pacific Grove and also visit Monterey and Pebble Beach which we did. Don't miss visiting the excellent aquarium using the free tickets that the owners provide. We loved our visit and thank you, Hank and Lori, for the privilege of rentng it.

We have quite a bit of family in Monterey and visit every summer. This is the first time we have rented a house for our stay, and after this year's trip, we will ALWAYS rent a house. The house had a fabulous location and the aquarium passes were great to have. The house was clean and comfortable and was larger than we had expected. My husband and I had one room, our 2 daughters shared the other room, and our son slept comfortably on the couch. Our children ( ages 2, 4, & 6) could play safely in the enclosed backyard without being constantly watched. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to family and friends. Thanks Hank & Lori!

We had a great time at Hank and Lori's place. It was the perfect location to get to all of the places we wanted to see. Many of the places were within walking distance and it was close to restaurants. The house had all the basic items needed for cooking and it had a great back porch with a grill. The large living room was nice for relaxing for the whole family and the view of the water was nice. A telescope allowed daily views of seals and sea otters. If we come back to the Monterey area again, we will definitely try to book this house again. We would highly recommend it!

We loved the location, one block from the beach and a short walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We had not been for years and the aquarium was better than ever, so the free guest passes were very much appreciated. I have food intolerances and NEED to cook for myself, so the full kitchen was great. As was the propane barbeque outside. The beds were comfortable, the living room was spacious and the neighborhood was quiet (well, except for the gulls!) so we were very happy.

About the owner: I grew up in Pacific Grove and have always loved the hometown feel. People are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Pacific Grove. Very close to famous Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach Lodge and famous Carmel for dining and shopping or just wandering around.
Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
There is just so much to do from this spot in Pacific Grove. I grew up in this neighborhood and have always loved it so much. My family has so much history in this area. My parents lived in this home for over 50 years and enjoyed every day of it. We have updated the home with refinished hardwood floors, tile entry, new sofa and loveseat, new Milgard windows, freshly painted inside and out, new blinds, crown molding, new backyard bar, new gardens, new GE 4 burner electric range, microwave, new coffee pot, dishes etc. Everything freshened up and updated for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Also close to Laguna Seca and Carmel Mission! Wonderful Sunday morning Catholic church services at the Carmel Mission. Just meander through Carmel and follow to the river where the Carmel Mission is.
