  • Great stay in Pacific Grove

    "I spent 3 nights in the cottage which was a base for a golfing weekend. Everything was as advertised and there was plenty of room for one or a couple. Check-in was easy and communication with Carol was excellent. There is lots of privacy even though the cottage is on their property. Nice and close to transportation routes and a Trader Joe's grocery store. Not really within walking distance to the tourist area & restaurants of Pacific Grove but it was a quick 5 minute drive and easy parking in the area (at least in May). I had dinners at Passionfish and Peppers Mexicali Cafe and both were excellent. I really enjoyed my stay in the cottage - my only suggested improvement is that the WIFI connection needs to be improved; at least during my stay the signal was weak and occasionally dropped. I would recommend staying at the cottage if you are visiting the area and are looking for a non-hotel experience. Have fun - the golf in the area is amazing!"

  • Loved the Little Jewel Box!

    "You will love your visit to the Little Jewel Box. The owner has taken great care in the design and maintenance of this property. Expect great communication and be prepared to treat this home like the treasure it is with no shoes inside. I hope other renters will continue to use care when they visit so The Little Jewel Box is in as lovely condition the next time I visit! I will definitely stay here again. The space heater in the little guest bedroom was handy and served to add just the right amount of white noise for my little one to sleep. While the home is small it is also well designed and well appointed so I had no space issues whatsoever for storing my things or moving around the home comfortably."

  • HOME ~ peace and relaxation. Natural beauties!

    "What a pleasant surprise! The family room downstairs had sleeping arrangements galore. We actually missed a sleeping quarters (which is not counted in as a bedroom) with a bathroom and exit door for two days because it is so private (great for a Nanny.) The home is spacious with breathtaking views and natural light galore. The kitchen was comparable to my own kitchen. I looked in the cupboards while I was cooking.....flour, oil, every seasoning you could ever need....EVEN different coffee flavors!! AND, an assortment of music, books, games and soap for the washing machine. We were delighted every minute we were there and will return. The home was located near a main road for easy access to groceries, restaurants, the beach, Fisherman's Wharf, the Aquarium, and visitor sites. Thank you for making our stay so memorable...Home away from home!"
