Experience the vintage charm of Pacific Grove in this two-bedroom/two bath seaside cottage built in 1890. This historic home is close to Jewell Park, a short stroll from Lover’s Point Beach—and just a few blocks from the shops and restaurants lining Lighthouse Avenue.You’ll feel warm and welcome with a gas fireplace, a cheerful, green and white country-style kitchen, and a small patio with room to barbeque. Period touches abound, from the brass bed in the master to the white claw foot tub in the upstairs bath. And when the fog rolls in, the cozy nook at the top of the stairs is the perfect place to nestle in with a cup of cocoa and a good book.Pacific Grove Transient Use License #410

Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 11:00 AM
Out first-ever stay at Sweet Pea was delightful in so many ways. After arriving on a Sunday afternoon, we unloaded our car and, much to our surprise, didn’t drive our car again until our departure a week later. Each day of our stay was an exciting adventure. Sunday evening dinner at Max’s Grill … Monday, stroll along Lighthouse Avenue ending with the sumptuous evening Farmer’s Market … Tuesday, 25th wedding anniversary celebration and dinner at Fandango restaurant … Wednesday, Lover’s Point and a Monterey Trail adventure … Thursday, walking journey to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary and Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History … Friday, return to Lighthouse Avenue and more dining adventures … Saturday, an active evening of ballroom dancing at the historic Chautauqua Hall Dance Club … Sunday, goodbye breakfast at Tootsie’s on Lighthouse Avenue. Thanks to Sweet Pea’s comfortable sleeping accommodations, we rested well each night.
Delightful comfortable house. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, Aquarium, shopping, movie theater, and close to Carmel. Needs new can opener, odd placement of light fixtures (hanging from the middle of the room in kitchen & bedroom) and a better placement for laundry soap would be on the washing machine, not beneath the kitchen sink where it was undetected. The neighbor Nick & her dog Rory are delightful. Excellent care of problems by Shane. I would recommend it to others.
We've delivered a new can opener and alerted the housekeeper to leave the detergent by the washer. Please come visit us again!
Sweet cottage in a great location
We stayed at Sweet Pea cottage for a week as a family of four with children aged 9 & 16. The cottage is lovely and full of character. It was very clean upon arrival and well presented. The children had the attic room upstairs with the larger bathroom with a lovely claw-foot bath in it. The kitchen is quite compact and basically equipped, do not expect to cook a full meal here. We had breakfast there then explored the great selection of restaurants in the local area. The beach is just at the end of the road with a great look out over Lovers Point, excellent restaurant here too. It is further to walk to the aquarium and cannery then advertised. It is a good 15-20 minute walk at a fair pace and we are not slow walkers and are very active. The lounge could do with an extra lamp or light, there is only one small lamp to light a whole room. Also, disappointing there were no DVDs to watch and no-way of paying to rent a film through the Xfinity box which we would've gladly done as the Xfinity is 800 channels of tosh. Parking can be an issue as the street is narrow and you can only park on one side, we were lucky most of the time to find a space. The neighbour is very nice and friendly and is also from the UK. The children loved the little dog living there. We would stay here again but recommend that a welcome pack would've been a nice touch, we stayed in a house the previous week in Yosemite and everything was provided including a welcome pack of groceries. No-one wants to have to go out and get basic groceries after a long drive to be able to have a coffee. The pack of coffee left in the kitchen was absolutely tiny and already open so we didn't touch it. Shame as this would be easy to do, this is not a cheap rental so I think that's the least you could do.
Perfect location, clean and nicely kept place .. Wouldn't change anything.
Sweet pea lives up to its name
Great little house with all you need to relax and enjoy. Excellent location walking distance to Monterey aquarium, beaches and downtown pacific grove. Highly recommended. Monterey rental staff were also fantastic.
Great location, quaint place
Nice place, in a very centrally located area in Pacific Grove. A big front porch to sit and sip a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Two blocks from the bay at Lovers' Point. Easy to walk neighborhood of wonderfully quaint homes. The neighbors are friendly; one with an energetic happy dog that comes to visit if you want. We had a lovely time and would enjoy returning sometime in the future.
