About the property

3 Bedroom Oceanfront Home on Monterey Bay Across the Street from Otter Cove.

In compliance with City of Pacific Grove Short Term Rental Program License #0031.




This charming bright and cheery home on the waters edge and steps to a sandy beach that features three ocean view bedrooms all upstairs and two full baths, one on each floor. The spacious master suite features panoramic views, a queen bed, TV with DVD and private balcony perfect for relaxing and breathing in the fresh ocean air.

For the gourmet cook there is a modern fully equipped kitchen with granite counters, new stainless steel appliances and all the conveniences of home. Enjoy cooking and dining while watching seals suntan, otters frolicking and waves crashing upon the rocks or nestle by a warm fire in the cozy fireplace.

However, if you prefer excitement a wealth of activities abound! Choose from numerous championship golf courses, whale watching, the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, hiking, kayaking, surfing, scuba diving, boating, bicycling, fishing, wine tasting, gallery gazing, shopping, fine dining, live theatre and museums to name a few.

This sparkling home is nestled between Monterey and Carmel on the Pacific Grove waterfront area known as the 'Pink Carpet' because during the late spring months the coast becomes a bright purple-pink mass when all the iceplant is in bloom.

The weather on the Monterey Peninsula is enjoyable all year long and is most spectacular in the spring and fall months.

Nice, clean and well situated house.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, well equipped, clean and tidy house, exactly like on the pictures. The owner answers promptly and effectively. The only slightly negative point, is that the first floor is covered with carpet, even the kitchen. We appreciated the aquarium passes.

The location of this home on Ocean View Blvd. offers spectacular views of Monterey Bay. The bay is literally across the street. The upstairs Master Bdrm has a deck that allows you to take in and experience this beautiful spot. The layout of the main floor is a bit unique and funky but we soon became used to it. As it is "small" having lots of guests might be challenging. House was clean and neat upon arrival. Dennis' instructions were clear and easy to follow. Very responsive to our booking inquiry, and great communications before and after our visit. As other reviewers have indicated, the house is very well stocked. We suggest you check the cupboards and fridge before you go grocery shopping. Spices, etc are plentiful! Caution for folks with any physical challenges the stairs to the 2nd floor bedrooms are a bit steep and narrow. WiFi, Tv's and appliances all performed, no issues. Hiking and biking along the trails and bikeways was great. This home is close to the PG downtown (easily within walking distance) and you can see Lovers Point by stepping out the front door and looking to the right. It's right there! We would definitely consider returning to this home for our next trip to Pacific Grove.

Better view than photos can do justice

  • 5 of 5

The upstairs deck of the house has a view that is beyond amazing. On a clear day, you can see essentially the entire Monterey Bay. So far, we have seen all the typical seabirds, sailboats, fishing boats, whale watching boats and tourists of all shapes, colors and sizes walking and biking along the along the pathway that borders Pacific Grove. But the most memorable highlights have been sea otters feeding, seals and sea lions sleeping and swimming, and numerous whales spouting as they cruise slowly past. Because there are literally miles of panoramic views, it is possible to spot a whale to the east and then visually track it for 20 minutes as it makes its way westward around the curvy shoreline. The owners provide binoculars to aide your viewing, but bring video recording devices so you can preserve the unforgettable sights you will see from this home.

Given that is it located in Pacific Grove, the house provides easy access to all of the restaurants and attractions that Pacific Grove, Monterey, Carmel and Moss Landing provide. Just across Ocean View Blvd from the house, there are numerous beach access points that are free to the public. The shoreline has all the typical tidepool creatures to discover is you are willing and able to explore.

The house is well equipped to make a stay comfortable. Like most beach houses, this house has a wonderfully quirky personality. The house is designed to make the most of a relatively small footprint, so don’t be surprised that the balcony is triangular in shape, that there is a fireplace in the kitchen and that the faucets in the upstairs shower turn on in opposite directions from one another.

Although the house is over 50 years old, is has been updated with granite countertops and modern appliances in the kitchen. The housekeeping service did an impressive job of making the whole place look fresh and inviting. I would recommend this rental for any couple or family that is still mobile enough to make it up the stairs to the bedrooms.

VRBO made it convenient to rent this house, but the $93 fee that VRBO charged for the reservation was excessive and not value-added.

We had a great time at this home in Monterey! Plenty of space and good view of the ocean,!

  • 5 of 5

Dennis provided all the amenities needed to have a great time. The extra bonus of the aquarium passes was awesome and really appreciated. We saw scuba divers and surfers from the dining room window which was amazing. The house is located just 15 minutes from grocery store and about 5 minutes from the warf and other attractions.

The Monterey Peninsula and the surrounding areas have so much to offer that you could spend a month here and still not see or experience everything.

The beauty of the area is breathtaking from Monterey to Big Sur.

Marine life abounds just out the front door with a tide pool beach directly across the street where harbor seals and sea otter feast and play in the waters just off shore and relax and sunbath on the rocks during low tides. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and whales as they too frequent our protected bay waters.

There is a recreational trail directly in front of the house that wanders along the ocean south to Asilomar and north to Fisherman's Wharf and beyond. It passes Lover's Point, going through Cannery Row, home of the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, and down into Monterey. There are numerous world class restaurants, golf courses, and shopping nearby. Most weekends there are family events happening here or in one of the many cities close by, some of the more prominent ones attract guests from all over the world.

The adjoining Salinas Valley is considered the salad bowl of the world and our local Farmer's Markets take advantage of that on Monday's in Pacific Grove and Tuesday's in Monterey.

The history of the first state capital of California is apparent with a visit to the local historical sights and museums, especially Customs House Plaza next to Fisherman's Wharf, and the Carmel Mission in Carmel.

A day trip to Big Sur will astound you with the natural beauty of the rugged California coastline. There are hiking trails and remote beaches along the way for even more adventure.

The Monterey Peninsula is a must see destination with something to do 365 days of the year with moderate temperatures even in the summer and winter!!!
