"There's not much I can add to the fabulous reviews for this MLC and the host and hostess. The location is wonderful (8 or 9 of the best restaurants in Trip Adviser for Pacific Grove are within a few blocks walking distance, Lovers Point is just a few blocks away, the beach trail for Pacific Grove and Monterey is also a few blocks away, the Monterey Aquarium is about a five minute drive, you can walk to the Farmers Market...and well, you get the picture).
The cottage itself is charming, beautiful, and functional. The entrance has beautiful flowers in a little well kept garden and there are also gorgeous flowers on the patio. The cottage walls have lovely pictures with a lighthouse and nautical theme.
The owners have thought about everything to make your stay comfortable and safe (flashlight on the desk, frequently used tools in the desk drawers, candles if there is a power outage, etc.). Everything is well thought out. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. My wife and I loved watching movies in the very comfortable recliner chairs. The bed has high thread count sheets.
Here's example of how accommodating the owners are: My wife and I stayed in the MLC for more than a month so we had our snail mail forwarded to the MLC. Some of that mail needed to be shredded. When I requested a shredder, they had one promptly delivered. Another example was Duncan helping me interface a Roku device to the flat screen TV via an HDMI cable so we could watch Netflix and Amazon streaming movies.
So...if you are a couple seeking a romantic getaway in a charming, well located, and very functional cottage with terrific owners make a reservation for THIS one."

"Two couples had an enjoyable long weekend at this lovely restored/remodeled historic home. It's located a couple of blocks from down town with it's many shops, great restaurants, only a few more blocks to the bay, and within easy driving distance to the aquarium and Monterey wharf area. The house is very comfortable with a modern kitchen, and eclectic, interesting adornments. The neighborhood is quiet as opposed to the busier, nosier Monterey downtown. It fulfilled our expectations and needs, and Gary was quite accommodating and helpful. Thanks."

"Great location,excellent kitchen. We brought our own hammock and relaxed in the pretty backyard. Carl was great as was Nico a friend of his who helped settle us in. My only suggestion would be a written explanation for using the Fantastic bathtub
( heaven) . We loved the house . It was cozy and the kitchen was fantastic due to it's having a well stocked spice and tea and an instant hot water pot with french press for coffee. One block from water and a few from the aquarium and shops. Excellent restaurants abound . Do nott worry you will love it."
