About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

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.

We loved it and will be back

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome place.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful house! This house is very spacious, clean and best of all it's walking distance to a great beach that isn't very crowded. We also enjoyed the nice walking trail behind the house. It was just the two of us with our little dog and it was perfect. Downtown Pacific Grove and Cannery Row is a short drive away. Fatijah and Monica are very helpful if you have any questions. Thank you !

Another fabulous stay at this wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rents this home with another couple of families annually. We look forward to it all year. This year we had another fabulous stay at this wonderful home! The home and huge garden are so beautiful and peaceful; it makes for a very relaxing holiday. We love that the house is just a 10 minute walk from Asilomar Beach. Our families had great trips to the ocean. And days and evenings of playing and playing and playing for the kids and chatting and chatting and chatting for the adults.

When it's time to leave Asilomar Ocean Retreat we all feel a bit sad but we are also better equipped to go back to our busy lives.
