Monterey house description

On a private half-acre backing onto a nature trail, our spacious remodeled retreat is a short walk to Asilomar beach, the most beautiful beach on the Monterey Peninsula. The great room has soaring ceilings, a spacious dining area, a kitchen bar and couches looking on to the gardens. The cozy living room has a wood-burning fireplace and couch with a fold out bed. The four bedrooms all have French doors opening onto the grounds. This retreat also has a game room, with an air hockey table, a computer, and a library about area attractions. This home’s lounging spaces and chef’s kitchen will tempt you to hibernate. Yet we also provide a 30-page guide with our insights about the best walks, the best local restaurants, and fun things to do when you venture out.

Walk a few blocks from the retreat to the Asilomar State Park and beach entrance. From there, you may stroll the beach and miles of coastal paths. We are walking distance to the beginning of 17-mile drive, one of the most scenic drives in the world and to the Monarch Sanctuary, where thousands of monarch butterflies winter after their migration from Canada. Downtown Pacific Grove, with its quaint shops and excellent restaurants, is a 6-minute car ride away. Downtown Monterey is 11-minutes away while the Monterey Aquarium is just 8 minutes away. Nearby Lovers Point offers a protected sandy beach, great for kids, swimming, and snorkeling. And downtown Carmel is a 15 minute drive.

Our home is private, light, and lovingly cared for. It is a perfect place for you to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and explore the Monterey Peninsula.

          Location

          We are a block from the Asilomar entrance. Walk through to the beach. From there you can walk for miles on the ocean footpath or spend the day on Asilomar Beach which is perfect for surfing or tide pooling. Nearby Lover’s Point is a protected sandy cove, ideal for snorkeling or swimming. We are near the beginning of 17 mile drive, one of the most scenic drives in the world. Downtown Pacific Grove, with its quaint shops and an abundance of excellent restaurants, is a short car or bike ride away. Carmel and its numerous attractions is also very close, while a little further afield is the wild beauty of Point Lobos or of Big Sur. (you will find books of hikes at our house)
