No need to fight over who gets the ocean view in this fabulous 6-bedroom, 4-bath home on a private, rocky beach! With 270 degrees of blue-water views, four of the bedrooms have full views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay. The fifth and sixth bedrooms have a quiet, courtyard view just in case somebody doesn't like to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, or watch the moon sinking into the sea at night.
Our home, known since 1929 as Rocky Shores, is minutes from Carmel and Cannery Row in Monterey, and Pebble Beach is our neighbor. We operate under Pacific Grove's short-term rental license #83.
We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen - and the cook gets an ocean view, too. Dining table seats 10, 14 with extension. Foosball, pinball, ping pong, Legos, art and drawing supplies, puzzles, games and other toys for the kids. Steinway grand piano for the musically inclined. Off-street parking for six cars is available.
Trip Advisor has just chosen Pacific Grove as one of the top 12 scenic destinations in the United States! And there is no more beautiful home base than Rocky Shores to explore our wonderful town. Surf, snorkel, or comb the beautiful beaches and coves. Make S'mores at a bonfire on our secluded beach.
Nice restaurants just two blocks away. Fabulous Pacific Grove golf course is across the street. Downtown Pacific Grove is 1.5 miles away, with movie theater, farmers' market, restaurants, coffee houses, antiques, shops, bakeries and natural history museum. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and the American Tin Cannery outlets are about 2 miles away, as is Monterey's Fishermen's Wharf. Wine tasting in Carmel Valley is 30 minutes away. Big Sur is about 45 minutes away. John Steinbeck Museum is about 35 minutes away. We have just installed a whole-house Rainsoft water conditioning system, as well as a triple-filtration, reverse osmosis drinking water fountain in the kitchen. No need to lug bottled water here! Our home is perfect for your family reunion, corporate retreat, girls' vacation, or romantic hideaway!

My family has been blessed to spend 27 years in one of only two beachfront homes in Pacific Grove. You will love staying here, too! Our short-term rental license is #83.
Kirstie purchased this House in 1989
Why Kirstie chose Pacific Grove
We bought our home because it was the only home directly on the beach in all of Pacific Grove. It was extremely private, with a golf course across the street, State Park surrounding us, and the blue Pacific as our backyard. We have a full acre of private property. Another residence has since been built next door, on its own acre of land. A portion of our stone driveway is shared by both homes.
What makes this House unique
I love to look out my window and see the full moon casting sparkling light onto the dark waves as it sinks to the horizon. On clear evenings, the sunsets are spectacular. The morning sunrise casts a pink glow on the waves. And when it is foggy, there is a magic about the property that is enhanced with a roaring wood blaze in the fireplace, or a glass of wine in the hot tub.

Beautiful 5 star home, yet cozy and comfortable
Our whole family stayed. All said it was the best vacation they'd ever had. The house was fantastic and the owner made sure that we had everything we needed. It was an incredible time with memories to last forever!
Fantastic location, stunning views and excellent service from host! We will definitely return.
The property is one of a kind. You don't get views like this. The house was perfect for a large family gathering. The trails, beaches, golf, aquarium and downtown are all right there. Location couldn't be better!
Amazing, location cannot be beat
As a family we have been visiting the Monterey Peninsula for 15+ years, with most stays either hotels or vacation rentals. We just wrapped up a stay here and all my family (I included) can say is WOW. Although there is a lot of coastline, in the region, there are very few homes that are literally on the rocks / beach / water. This house is it. Plus it's secluded from other homes, so very private and quite. Yet at the same time it's centrally located if that makes sense. It's a 10-15min drive to the aquarium, a 2 min drive or 10min walk to a beautiful state beach and numerous food options all within a 15 min drive. We had more plans, but ended up spending more time at the house just simply taking in the view. We daily had whale, otter, seal and dolphin sightings either from the couch or back sitting areas. Bottom line, if the ocean is your thing this place cannot be beat.
It was so much fun welcoming in the New Year with such nice people! It warmed my heart to see how Joe and his family loved the house from the moment they walked in the door. Come back soon!
Amazing stay and views!
Although we only stayed a short couple of days, our host Kristie went above and beyond to make our stay possible and special. The sounds of the crashing waves and views of the ocean are breathtaking. We had 6 couples stay comfortably in this home, but be aware that 2 of the rooms are adjoined to other bedrooms, so perfect for families or if your guests know and are comfortable with each other. I would definitely recommend this home!
Thank you Katie!
Perfect for a Family Reunion
Pictures do not do this home justice. The views of the ocean are beyond amazing - you are right there on the shore. Loved hearing the sound of the sea at night and oh my goodness when we were there it was a a full moon. The amenities that are offered are perfect for creating quality time for everyone in the family, pinball, ping pong, hot tub, tons of board games and even a big screen tv. The gourmet kitchen was well appointed and a delight to cook in. Her "bible" was so helpful for choosing restaurants, activities, and for answering questions about taking care of her home. Kirstie's home was elegant and yet so comfortable. Thanks for the memories. We will be back.
Thank you! I know you were dreading your return to "Hotlanta" , and I'm glad you will come back the next time you need a dose of Pacific Grove Air Conditioning!
What a great family! I enjoyed sharing my home with all of you.
We just got back from a wonderful girl's weekend at Kirstie's beautiful home. Everything you could want in a rental is at this home, there is not a better location in the area. All of us remarked over and over again about the views (pictures can't do them justice), and we are already trying to figure out when we can come back again. Thank you Kirstie for everything and hope to see you again soon!!!
You guys were terrific. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and for helping me with my radiator cap! I would love to welcome you back again, anytime...
