Pacific Grove house description

**Good Thru Feb. 2015. Call for details**

Welcome to "Gingerbread House"!

A touch of Europe prevails in this unique stucco 2-story, 5-bedroom, 2-bath home located just 4 blocks from downtown Pacific Grove and the sparkling blue waters of Monterey Bay.>br>
With its pointed-arch roofline and front door, river-rock wall and manicured landscaping, this appealing house combines a sense of tradition with sophisticated style and beach comfort. The large home is divided into two separate areas that can be rented separately or together (see #3344 on this website for further information).

The 3-bedroom first-floor main house, with its sophisticated Pottery Barn décor, spacious living/dining room and hardwood floors, can sleep up to 7.

This is the perfect home for family/friend reunions, wedding guests, golf buddies and girlfriend get-togethers, as all the bedrooms have been set up for either single or couples. The two units together can sleep 12 single guests or 5 couples and 2 singles.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, oversized towels and beach gear. Pets are allowed in the downstairs unit.

The first-floor main house, which is 1,700 square feet, features a spacious living room with hardwood floors, decorative white-brick fireplace and urbane, sophisticated décor in dark woods and earth colors accented in jewel-tones of blues and greens. Furnishings include a sleigh sofa that can sleep 1, two comfy overstuffed chairs and a large coffee table. A panel of old-fashioned half-paned windows looks out to a manicured front lawn with neatly trimmed shrubs, colorful flowers and well-established trees. On the opposite wall from the windows is a 46-inch flat-screen HDTV LED and BluRay DVD. Built-in book cases are filled with inspirational reading material.

A sparkling kitchen, in ocean colors of crisp bright white with royal-blue and turquoise tiles on countertops and splash-backs, is equipped with an electric stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. A stacking washer/dryer is provided nearby. The adjacent dining room, with French doors leading out to a small redwood deck equipped with gas grill, has a dark wood rectangular table that can seat 8 but expand to seat 12. A tall redwood table and chairs for 2 on the lawn near the deck affords a lovely spot for sipping morning coffee or tea while enjoying the fresh sea breezes.

The master bedroom has a king bed (with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to 2 twins) and is beautifully decorated with rich dark wood furniture and colors of teal blues and aquamarine greens.

A second bedroom likewise has a king that can be converted to 2 twins. A third smaller bedroom features a trundle bed that can sleep 1 or 2 singles or become a king if necessary. All beds have luxury-hotel-quality linens with white sheets, a coordinating white duvet comforter and sophisticated coverlets in vibrant sea tones of turquoise and aquamarine blues. A full bathroom features mossy- and forest-green tiles around the sink, on the walls and lining the tub/shower.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually, there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house, then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.

          Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the main entrance to 17-Mile Drive. Within this charming city, known for its old-fashioned, friendly downtown and colorful historic Victorian homes, are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allow you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.
