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

A wonderful stay in Pacific Grove.

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of six retirees starting a Northern California tour on the Monterey Peninsula. We were very comfortable at the Laurence home It is very convenient to the Pacific Grove shops including a wonderful bakery, market, and hardware store. We walked to the Monterey Aquarium on a beautiful path along the bay. The house kitchen is well stocked and very functional. The upstairs shower is huge and fun to use. The house is full of photos to help visitors get a sense of the owners family and the history of the house. The wallpaper in the foyer and living room appears to be vintage and is beautiful. The mattresses were a little soft and in one room was corrected by putting the mattress on the floor. New firm mattresses might be something the Laurences ought to consider. Overall we strongly recommend this property to groups/families who are looking for an authentic Pacific Grove experience.

Nice home and great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed walking the few blocks to plenty of restaurant options with our three little kids and my mother-in-law. It was about a 15 minute walk to the ocean for us one evening. Felt this was a good property. The home was old (as are all homes in Pacific Grove), but the pictures and descriptions are accurate.

Great house. Felt like I was going home at night not to some generic hotel room.

Convenient to so many activities & fair price

  • 5 of 5

The house is very large & had everything we needed. We had a variety of ages & sleep schedules -- the people downstairs could not hear the people upstairs & vice versa. It was clean & felt homey. We enjoyed walking around the neighborhood. We would stay here again next time we are in PG.

Great for a family getaway to Monterey.

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with a toddler and an infant and this place was perfect. It was a half mile walk to Lover's Point where we could check out the ocean, and a short drive to cannery row and the aquarium. The house is a beautiful Victorian in a very cute neighborhood with two parks close by (both in walking distance.) Everything was clean and the kitchen was well appointed with cooking utensils, spices, and even had some children's utensils. We would definitely stay here again.

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!
