About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, Rental License #0057


Our family has been visiting Pacific Grove for years. Each time we would rent a different home hoping to find the one we would want to come back to each year. We were always disappointed. Finally, we decided to buy a house ourselves, fix it up and offer the level of cleanliness, comfort and style we had searched for all those years. We now offer that home for your enjoyment!

This lovely historic Victorian home has been nicely updated while retaining the charm and classy beach theme setting you want when staying in Pacific Grove. From the plush towels and bedding to the 42' HD Sony Bravia flat screen television with Blu-Ray DVD you will not be disappointed. We have truly tried to think of everything to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable.

This home is only a short walk to renown Lover's Point and the oceanfront biking/walking trail which will take you to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. You can also travel the short 1.2 miles to Asilomar Beach with its sand dunes and crashing waves. Golfers will love the close proximity to the Pacific Grove Golf Links as well as Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay.

Come home after a day at the beach, golf course or Aquarium to sit on the cozy front porch and enjoy the afternoon sun while sipping on your favorite beverage. You can enjoy a home cooked meal at the comfortable dining room table or walk around the corner to award winning restaurants and all the shops and coffee houses Pacific Grove has to offer. With this home's location, you can literally park the car and leave it parked your entire visit.

Renting our wonderful home also means you will also enjoy 2 free Monterey Bay Aquarium passes (an appx. $100 per day value!). These passes allow you complete in and out privileges at the Aquarium during your entire stay with members only early entry during certain dates and a 10% discount on all gift shop purchases. Best of all, you don't have to wait in a long line when you use the members' only entrance!

Please contact us with any questions you may have. This is our own personal vacation home, so no detail has been spared. Our goal is for you to come back to this home each and every time you visit Pacific Grove.

***Note: We are sorry but due to a severe cat allergy in our family, we cannot rent to persons who own cats - even outdoor cats. We apologize for any inconvenience, but it is a very serious allergy that can be life threatening.

About Yvette

We are a family of four who enjoy having a very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished home. We have always loved Pacific Grove and believe it to be one of the best vacation spots in the country. We purchased this home in 2009 and spent a year fixing it up. We were so tired of arriving at homes we had rented from pictures on the internet only to be extremely disappointed by the lack of maintenance, care, cleanliness and attention to detail - not to mention location. We know you will love this home as much as we do as soon as you set foot inside. We truly believe the quality of the home you rent can make or break your vacation. Our goal is for you to come back to our home year after year.

Yvette purchased this house in 2009

Why Yvette chose Pacific Grove

This is hands down the best location Pacific Grove has to offer! You can walk or bike to everything! Beach, golf course, park, Monterey Bay Aquarium, shopping, coffee, restaurants, grocery store, etc. We wanted a location where we could park our car and leave it the entire trip plus have a central location to traveling anywhere on the central coast. Now we have it! We believe we are as close as you can get to Lover's Point before the streets get crowded and noisy with difficult parking. Access is a breeze to this home.

What makes this house unique

The charm of a truly historic Pacific Grove Victorian home with the comforts of modern day living. Many higher end furniture pieces and beach theme furnishings, custom paint and blinds, stainless steel kitchen appliances, walk to everything the area has to offer, 2 free Monterey Bay Aquarium passes good during your entire stay, instantaneous hot water heater, whole house water softener, fully stocked laundry area, books, puzzles/games, cable with On Demand and pay per view, 42' HD Sony Bravia TV, off or on street parking - need we go on?!

We loved our stay and it was hard to leave... Pacific Grove is a magical place.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so charming and perfectly decorated and clean. It has everything you need and we wished we could have stayed much longer. Two nights flew! Hoping to come back. Yvette was spot on with communication and working with us. The restaurant recommendations in the book on the desk... all accurate... we had some nice meals out... thank you!

Happy Valentine's Day

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here Jan 31 thru Feb 14, 2018 very much. We appreciated having all that we needed provided in the house – kitchen has every tool and supply at hand when wanted; bathrooms complete with towels, soaps, shampoos, tissues; bedrooms include empty dressers awaiting our use, great pillows, very comfortable king size bed and blackout curtains in master, two twins we didn’t use in the second bedroom; living room and dining room have comfortable feel and furniture; washer and dryer with soaps; children’s corner in the dining room. Yvette and Jeff thought of everything we might want or need.

This is a charming older cottage recently added to, refurbished, well cared for. We really liked being so close to Lighthouse Drive and the many attractions of “downtown” Pacific Grove. Perhaps most appreciated was that, despite proximity to neighbors and to main street, we slept very well in dark, quiet, comfortable bedroom - perhaps better than at home. The living room window blinds were a bit of a challenge to operate, but of course that could be operator error.

All in all, this place was outstanding in its thoughtful attention to detail and we’ve reserved the cottage again for April and look forward to returning.

Great location and kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was clean and well stocked. We had our toddler with us and the house had a kids table and chairs, lots of children’s books, and some toys. The house was also a close walking distance to a neighborhood playground. Thank you for sharing your lovely house with us.

Spacious, great kitchen and outdoor patio

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my Mom's 91st birthday with my sister at this wonderful

home in Pacific Grove. We all loved the spaciousness of the home, the great working kitchen and especially loved spending our mornings

drinking our coffee out in the back yard area. The location is wonderful- we were able to walk down to a restaurant for dinner. Thank you- we will be back. Kate Johnson

Totally Charming

This place is very comfortable and well stocked. It is a quiet place but within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Only about a mile from the aquarium. It exceeded all our expectations!
