Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Laurance Family home has been at the corner of Granite and Laurel streets for more than 80 years now. Standing tall, this delightful Victorian is centrally located in the charming town of Pacific Grove. It's but a short walk to Lover's Point beach and downtown. Our home is ideal for a family interested in touring 17 Mile Drive, Point Lobos or Big Sur. Golfers will be very close to all of the great courses in the area: Pacific Grove Municipal, Spyglass, Poppy Hills, Spanish Bay and Pebble Beach are all but a short drive from the house. Shoppers are close to the outlets and the shops of Carmel. Cannery Row is nearby as well. Enjoy lounging in a comfortable living room with fireplace and large screen, high-definition television. House is wireless Internet equipped as well. Three bedrooms upstairs sleep two each. Couches downstairs pull-out for overflow. Fully-equipped kitchen and sunlit breakfast nook. Dining room seats 12 comfortably.

Ideal morning

Walk downtown for a newspaper and pastries. Return to house for coffee in the sunlit breakfast nook. Take a long walk down to Lover's Point and along the coast trail to Asilomar Beach. For runners, try the trail that goes to Fisherman's Wharf and back (about 6 miles round trip).

Ideal afternoon outing

Drive down highway one to Big Sur (about one hour). Check out Andrew Molera or one of the other amazing state parks. Stop for lunch on the way back at the River Inn. Enjoy a cool drink while dipping your toes in the Big Sur River. Stop at Point Lobos or downtown Carmel on the way home.

Ideal evening

Twilight back nine at Pacific Grove Municipal. Dinner at Roy's in Spanish Bay resort. Walk thru the dunes on the lighted boardwalks. A nightcap by the fire.

About Dave Laurance

Growing up in Pacific Grove was a delight. The town is still dear to my heart and managing this property allows me to stay connected to PG and to the wonderful home that my parents created. I enjoy golf, the outdoors and cooking.

Dave Laurance purchased this house in 1975

Oldie but goodie

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The beds were comfortable, rooms were large, we grilled out, kids played in the yard. Very nice time.

My only recommendation is that they maybe get a keurig because it's easier to deal with for coffee on vacation and maybe some plastic cups and plates for kids. Other than that no worries or complaints at this home!

Thank you so much!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while we were in the area for my brother's wedding. There were 3 adults and 1 child and the house was more than large enough for all of us. It's a well loved and well maintained family home that was perfect for our family. It was neat and clean when we arrived and the instructions and all of the communications with Dave we timely and friendly. The kitchen and dining room were well equipped and we were able to invite my brother and sister-in-law and all of her family over for dinner one night (12 people total). There was plenty of room and everyone commented on how nice it was. We felt right at home here and would definitely stay here again. Thanks for sharing such a great house with us!

Wonderful Home, great location

  • 4 of 5

We visit Monterey at least once a year with our family. This home was wonderful. Awesome location - close but out of the way. This is a home and you really can feel like you are at home when staying here.
