Pacific Grove house description

A few years ago, we asked our full-time tenants to leave, and hired professionals to help us start over and upgrade our 1600 sq ft vacation home. It took 10 months to redo everything, we ended up keeping only 3 pieces of sheet rock intact. So believe me, it's renovated.

The master bedroom/bath, TV viewing area & deck are upstairs. The 2nd bedroom/bath, living room, dining area and kitchen are on the first floor.

The deck is delightful. In fair weather you can catch some morning sun and the house acts as a shield from the prevailing breezes. It's a delightful place to breakfast, play on the computer or just feel like you're in a treehouse.

It's a very quiet neighborhood at night - so no barking dogs PLEASE. When there's ocean swells you can hear the buoys. And on really quiet nights you can hear seals barking.

And, yes, it's professionally cleaned right before your arrival!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: We've lived in California since 1977. Scuba diving is a passion for both of us, we did lots of horseback riding at one point (but not so much now), Charlie sculls, I exercise/dance/cook, we love movies and read lots.

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove:
We bought this home a few months before the Monterey Bay Aquarium opened. We lived in Silicon Valley at the time and came to the area almost every weekend to scuba dive. Even then we knew we wanted to 'fix the place up' one day to be a vacation rental and our second home. Finally - that's a reality!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very close to some of the most interesting diving in the world. And within 1 mile of the Aquarium. Sure, there's all that golf stuff - but we live for the sea!
