About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Charming two-bedroom cottage dating from 1888, lovingly restored by architect owner, enjoys an exceptional location a few steps from the safe family swimming beach at Lover’s Point, in a quiet, safe neighborhood of Pacific Grove. Guests love its privacy, warmth and heritage ambience as well as its modern conveniences – from the whole house entertainment system (with iPhone/iPod dock) and spa to the well-equipped kitchen and luxurious beds that guarantee a great night’s sleep.

You are perfectly placed to explore the wider Monterey Peninsula from here. In less than a minute, you can join an oceanfront recreation trail that extends for miles. It is just a five-minute stroll to downtown Pacific Grove shops, bookstores, restaurants and cafes, and the Lighthouse Cinemas; a 10-minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium; a 10-minute drive to downtown Monterey, Pebble Beach and Carmel; and a 30-minute drive to Big Sur. Guests have the use of two bicycles and two guest passes to the Aquarium -a $60 value per day- during their stay.

The house has a Victorian exterior and comfortable, contemporary interior. It has all new plumbing, electrical and heating, and on-demand hot water. Walls are finished in beautiful American Clay plaster, with original redwood trim. The living area floors are polished wood. The bathroom and kitchen have heated stone floors, and in the bathroom there is a two-person air jet massage tub with a garden view. There is a cute landscaped patio with a gas barbeque in the back yard, and seating for two on the front porch for morning coffee. This gem of a property offers high quality living, and a fantastic base from which to explore one of California’s most beautiful natural landscapes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Welcome to the Farrington House Victorian Beach Cottage! I'm Carl. I've traveled a bit and love meeting guests because it makes having a vacation rental fun. I'm a Carmel based architect and often live in the cottage when it's not rented out. I love this neighborhood and location next to the beach. My neighbors and I frequently sit out on the front porch enjoying coffee or a glass of wine together. Currently, I am working on a project in Nepal, and my friends Clare and Richard (pictures above) will greet you when you arrive. We look forward to meeting you on your arrival in Pacific Grove!

Why the Owner Chose Pacific Grove, CA, USA:
In a word-location. This is a fantastic location in the historic 'retreats' neighborhood, originally a religious summer camp. It's a short walk to all that Pacific Grove has to offer such as the beach, the recreation trail, the world class Monterey Bay Aquarium and downtown restaurants. Downtown Monterey, Asilomar, and Pebble Beach are all a five minute bike ride away. PG has a small beach town ambiance. I like the strong sense of community that is characteristic of Pacific Grove. People are quite friendly here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great location!! Guests love the cottage’s wonderful location 3 doors to the beach at Lover”s Point, 10 minute walk to Monterey Bay Aquarium (Aquarium passes provided) along the recreation trail for walks and biking, and a couple of blocks to downtown’s shops, theater and restaurants. It is 5 minutes drive or bike ride to Pebble Beach, Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove municipal golf course and downtown Monterey. The spa and the whole house sound system with your music playing are especially popular with guests.
