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. Nearby Lovers Point offers a protected sandy beach, great for kids, swimming, and snorkeling. And downtown Carmel is only 15 minutes away.
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.
Our license number with the City of Pacific Grove is 0034.

This is the third year in a row we have rented this house and enjoyed each time. Plenty of room in the house and outside for parking. Walking distance to the ocean and trails. We also walk to listen to the bagpiper at Spanish Bay. Can't beat this location. Very responsive and helpful owner.
Perfect location for a Family Gathering
The Asilomar Ocean Retreat was a perfect place to have my sisters 70th Birthday Party! The large great room/kitchen allowed us to gather in one location for family fun. The bedrooms on either side of the great room gave us the space needed to have quiet time! This property was an ideal location, with plenty of parking off the street and in walking distance to the beach. Pacific Grove is nestled in between Monterey and Carmel gave us lots of options for sight seeing and entertainment.
We loved it and will be back
This home is just perfect for someone who is looking for a perfectly nice but not extravagant home in a great area. We loved the 4-BR open layout and the lot was great too. It felt private and spacious, with a large fenced yard with many trees and nice landscaping. The proximity to Asilomar beach, Links at Spanish Bay and 17-Mile was perfect for us bouncing back and forth between Carmel, Pebble Beach, the beaches, Poppy Hills, Spanish Bay and Pacific Grove. Great tip we got while down there: seek out scenic drive when you are in Carmel. It is just south of Carmel Beach, and it is an outstanding drive. We checked it out and wound up pulling over and getting out of the car to witness several humpback whales feeding in the cove for about 20 minutes. It was outstanding. Another tip--check out Asilomar Conference Center. It's a beautiful facility to walk through and get a quick coffee/breakfast, and it's only a 5-minute walk from the house.
Wonderful time and beautiful
Very relaxing vacation. Comfortable home & so close to the beach and other hikes. Loved it.
Lovely setting, woodsy and private.
Our family had a delightful week's stay in a spacious house with all the comforts of home.
Access to restaurants , grocers, leisurely nature walks, and beaches made for a relaxing
vacation experience .
It was great to be able to walk to the beach. Exploring the tide pools was quite fun. The kids loved kite flying. All of the family enjoyed foos ball. (Although I personally only won one game). What a kick. Thumbs up all around.
