About the property

Gingerbread 3BR 2.5BA, Sleeps 7

Experience the vintage charm of Pacific Grove while enjoying all the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century in this beautiful two-story, Victorian-style home built in 2002.

Relax on the deck off the master bedroom, or outside on one of two front porches: you can really spread out in this comfortable home with hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a unique "sun tower" at the top of the stairs. This den/office area, with a wet bar and under-counter refrigerator, is everyone's favorite place to read, chat, or just enjoy the view overlooking this charming neighborhood.

Cherry wood cabinets and a lovely tin ceiling add warmth and charm to the well-equipped kitchen, and the open floor plan can be "zoned" by doors separating the kitchen from the dining area and the living room from the entry way. An instant gas log fireplace in the living room adds ambiance while you enjoy a good book or a movie on cable TV/DVD (available in both the downstairs living room and the upstairs bedrooms).

All three bedrooms are carpeted and located on the second floor (14 steps up to the bedrooms). The master bedroom, decorated in soft tones of rose and green, has a queen-size bed and a private bath with a stall shower. A second guestroom has a queen-size bed; the third has two twins. The guest bath features a shower over tub, and there's another half bath downstairs.

The location makes this Victorian-style home one of our most popular accommodations in Pacific Grove. Upon arrival, you may just want to park your car in the spacious two-car garage and forget about it! Just a block from downtown, you are within easy walking distance of Pacific Grove’s quaint shops, restaurants, the Farmer's Market, and the scenic coastline recreation trail.

If you feel energetic, walk along the coastal trail to the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, exactly one mile from the front door. Along the way, observe marine life - sea lions, seals, otters, and shorebirds. Also within easy walking distance: a grocery store, bakeries, library, post office, ice cream parlor, coffee shops, visitor's center, museum, movie theater, bookstore, parks, playground, and boutiques. (If you prefer, there is bus service just a block away that will take you to the Aquarium and Cannery Row, downtown Monterey and Asilomar Beach.)

If you are a golf enthusiast, bring your clubs! The Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is just a half mile away, and a short drive will take you to the world-famous links at Pebble Beach. Don’t miss the boutiques and galleries of Carmel, and on a sunny day, take Highway 1 down the coast to Big Sur. (Mmmm, lunch at Nepenthe – an Ambrosia Burger and a basket of their famous fries!)

Incredibly beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Gingerbread House! It is a beautiful home. The location is perfect. The neighborhood is lovely. And it is a short walk to the ocean. Everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was well-stocked with all we needed for cooking meals. We were impressed with the quality of the linens and towels. The furniture and the accents were pretty, warm and inviting. We loved our first visit to Monterey and hope to come back again. Thank you for offering up this fantastic home. (One tip: Check the local calendar when booking your stay in Monterey. There was a marathon scheduled on the day we departed and we had to leave the property very early in the morning due to road closures.)

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus some family members, recently spent 4 nights at the Gingerbread House in Pacific Grove, before and during our daughter's wedding weekend. The House was charming, clean, and in a great location for walking to downtown shops/restaurants, as well as to the path along the ocean. We have been going the Monterey area for years, and always prefer to stay in Pacific Grove vs. either Monterey or Carmel. The rooms were all spacious and comfortable, and the half bath was an added bonus. It was great to have another area for getting ready on the morning of the wedding. The drive into Monterey for the wedding was quick and easy. The only negative was that there wasn't a nice outdoor space for congregating for a meal. A "secluded patio" was mentioned, but it wasn't set up for a group and was not particularly inviting. Since we were out and about most of the time, it didn't matter, but if we had been there for a more leisurely stay, with more time spent cooking and eating in, we would have preferred a better outdoor area for a group.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for an amazing stay at Gingerbread house. It was our first visit to America, and after a hectic time visiting Las Vegas and Los Angeles, a week relaxing in Pacific Grove was wonderful.

The Aquarium was a highlight and we managed a day trip to San Francisco and Alcatraz. Swimming and renting kayaks at Lover's Point beach was great because we saw an otter and seal. We went whale watching from Monterey wharf. Our favourite place to eat was the beachhouse at Lover's point. The nearby playground was handy for our little one.

It is so easy to walk to all the local neighbourhood facilities including a 3 screen cinema!

We traveled to Santa Cruz boardwalk for an evening which was easy and fun.

The house was lovely but it took us a while to work the washing machine as we did not have instructions. The garage was really good for the car and meant we could leave any sandy shoes in there. We played chess and checkers in the lounge and we loved the sun tower for morning coffee and reading. The kids liked the cupboard under the suntower.

Booking, key pickup and payment online went smoothly thanks to Monterey Property Rentals. A very efficient service.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Gingerbread house. It was perfectly located for us, we had kids with us and the house is a block from the playground, the beach and stores. The Aquarium is about a 15-20 minute stroll along the sea front. The house was nice and clean with comfortable beds. The only thing it didn't have was cribs, so we had to bring our own. We did the 17 mile drive along the coast from Pacific Grove to Carmel, the scenery is stunning! I would love to stay here again.

Gingerbread house

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for my family coming from Spain for five days. When picking up the keys from the main office, it was easy since they left them in an envelope with information about both the house and outdoor activities in Monterey. The house had everything needed and there was enough space for the five of them (there is even a sofa bed )

Two of the bathrooms clogged the first day, we called and In less than a couple of hours they fixed them.

The house is located in a nice neighborhood and it only takes a couple of minutes to get to the rec trail. Also, pacific grove has plenty of cute stores and cafes where you can roam around.

Regarding the deposit, it is insignificant compared with other places we looked into.

The only inconvenient that we saw was that the office closes by four and during the weekend it is also closed. Having said that, we wouldn't be able to have a look at the house until we checked in. However, the pictures posted in the website are the ones you find whe you get there and I have to say that they are amazing.

One of the bedrooms gets really hot because it has three windows and since the early morning the sun is already hitting.

I fully recommend the place to anyone who is looking for a quite place and liked small charming cities
