About Lori

I grew up in Pacific Grove and have always loved the hometown feel. People are so friendly and the shops and restaurants are wonderful. Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Pacific Grove. Very close to famous Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, Spanish Bay, Pebble Beach Lodge and famous Carmel for dining and shopping or just wandering around.

Lori purchased this house in 1954

Why Lori chose Central Coast

There is just so much to do from this spot in Pacific Grove. I grew up in this neighborhood and have always loved it so much. My family has so much history in this area. My parents lived in this home for over 50 years and enjoyed every day of it. We have updated the home with refinished hardwood floors, tile entry, new sofa and loveseat, new Milgard windows, freshly painted inside and out, new blinds, crown molding, new backyard bar, new gardens, new GE 4 burner

electric range, microwave, new coffee pot, dishes etc. Everything freshened up and updated for our guests.

What makes this house unique

Great small town to walk around and enjoy all the sights. The Monterey Bay is one block away in which you can ride a bike down the recreational trail or walk on it to enjoy the sights and smells of the Bay. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is also within walking distance as well as Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf. Also close to Laguna Seca and Carmel Mission! Wonderful Sunday morning Catholic church services at the Carmel Mission. Just meander through Carmel and follow to the river where the Carmel Mission is.

Great location, house and owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely with all the amenities and an enclosed yard. Great location - just one block down to the ocean to see the harbor seals. Very close to the aquarium. Lori was great with communicating - she returned my emails promptly and answered all my questions. Thank you so much.

Thank you Lori for a beautiful House. We loved the view and the easy walk to the Ocean, The house had everything we needed to make Thanksgiving Dinner. We love the old world charm. The only thing I would change about the house are both mattress not so comfortable. If not for that I would of given you five stars. We would love to come back again.

Grandma's House has bed mite's

  • 1 of 5

A couple of weeks ago my family and I rented this house for a long weekend. We actually had a very nice time. The location is amazing. You can walk everywhere. Which is nice when you have two little kids. It was not until the last night of staying there that my husband asked me if I was getting bit by anything. I said no. We thought it might have been from walking on the beach. There were no signs of anything on his body. Later that week when we got home he asked me again and I told him I did have a couple of bumps on my stomach. When I looked at him he was covered in small red bumps all over his torso. He then went to urgent care and the doctor told him he had scabies/bedmite's. She then explained to him the incubation time and they traced it back to this house. The Doctor actually told us you need to call them and get your money back. We then contacted the owners and explained what had happen. They asked to see the doctors report which we then gave to them. We told them that we know it was not intentional unfortunately things happen. I even told them that we would not ask for the cleaning fee or city taxes back because we did stay there. No response for a couple of days. Then we got a email that they would not be returning our money and that we did not contract them from there house. Because we paid the owners directly there is nothing that VRBO can do. They encouraged us to write a review. Oh and by the way after we told them what had happen they continued to rent out the house. So my suggestion to anyone renting a house don't pay the owners directly. Thankfully my two little girls did not get anything as they slept in a different bed.

Owner's Response: This did not happen at our home. This is a very harmful review to give a vrbo homeowner. This is not appropriate. You may have contracted this reaction from a beach or somewhere else you have been - it doesn't appear that quickly according to every explanation on the internet. Please retract this review. You apparently really enjoyed your last minute booking and now have complaints. We have never received any complaints like this before.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The home is exactly as pictured and quite comfortable. The yard worked our great for our dog and we liked being within walking distance of the aquarium. The house was clean and having passes to the aquarium was a wonderful added perk. Owners were quick to respond to questions and included contact info at the house. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

Great Location and Pets Welcome!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2yo son, and 2 dogs spent the long weekend at this wonderfully located Pac Grove house. The house was super clean on arrival and had great tourist items already for us to look at. The two bedrooms worked out great and the enclosed yard for the dogs was great.

The location is 1 block from the ocean and worked out great for being able to walk the dogs and go for a jog along the beautiful ocean trail. We were able to walk to Cannery row and a ton of great restaurants which is perfect when you have a 2 year old. We did drive to Carmel one day for a hike, but there was plenty to do in Pac Grove.

The aquarium passes that came with the house were perfect. We ended up getting to go in a half hour ahead of the general public which was great!
