Walk to the Beach!!! Decorated for our family to use as our vacation home. Steam Room Shower.

The Pacific Grove Beach House is located on Central Ave within walking distance from both the beach and Cannery Row. The two-story, 2,800+ square foot Craftsman home built in 1917 is on the list of U.S. National Historic landmarks. Previously a functioning Bed & Breakfast, the 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home can sleep 10, if couples, very comfortably.

Our family has put our hearts and souls into creating this wonderful retreat, and we welcome you. We invite you to kick off your shoes, leave your worries behind and make yourself comfortable at our home away from home. It is our sincere hope that our wonderful house by the sea will hold many special memories for all of our guests.

Our home combines the luxury of beach living with all the comforts of home. Kitchen features marble counter tops and a new 6 burner gas range and oven. Adjoining breakfast nook is perfect for casual breakfasts. Formal dining room features large table that seats up to 10.

Downstairs living room with working gas fireplace features a lovely adjoining indoor porch with breathtaking ocean view… perfect for morning coffee or relaxing sunset cocktails.

Downstairs family room is roomy and spacious with a 42' flat screen TV and comfortable suede couch wonderful for lounging… that is, if you can tear yourself away from the ocean views!

All bathrooms are pristine, completely remodeled when we purchased the home. Downstairs bath includes a steam shower...a perfect ending to a day on the links. Downstairs master bedroom has King bed, adjoining full bath and stunning ocean views. The upstairs sleeping quarters include 4 bedrooms. Upstairs master suite has double bed with adjoining full bath, and there are three additional bedrooms; two with queen beds, one with a double/twin bunkbed set.

The Man Cave/Game Room

Not to be missed is our very own “Tap Room.” The room features a vintage bar, flat screen TV, leather couches, stand-alone stove and giant poker table. Whether it’s a boys (or girls’!) night in or get-together to watch the Masters, our Tap Room has you covered.

Note: for high season stays in summer, priority is given to stays of 5 or more nights. Exceptions are made based upon availability and when booked within 30 days of a stay.

About Tom Keane

Our family has this home, as well a few others, for vacation and retreat travels. We offer this one specifically in the main summer months, as our travels go away from the area each summer. It is more 'our home' than a 'rental/vacation home' and we've been very happy to share it with many wonderful people for these past years. Unfortunately, the usage grew and grew, to the point of us having limited and unexpectedly 'light' access ourselves - thus, this year (2016) we are moving to offer it openly during the months of June, July and August, when we will be away. In other months, check the schedule as we do allow rental if the family has not booked the home. If this is in line with your travel plans, I hope we hear from you......our goal is to have the stays be longer - to five nights or more with each guest, but we're open to discussing other options should the calendar permit shorter term stays.

Tom Keane purchased this house in 2010

Why Tom Keane chose Central Coast

It's near everything. In between downtown Monterey and downtown Pacific Grove. Beautiful view of the Ocean. Walking distance to downtown. Amazing and 'local' dining just short walking distance away. Some of the finest biking - especially if you are a fan of flat and not hilly rides.

What makes this house unique

Located conveniently between Lovers’ Point and the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, our beach house is just a block from the beach and boasts breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every window. Minutes away from the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium and numerous restaurants, shops & wine tasting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great location, bathrooms were like new and kitchen was perfect. The house was very comfortable for our two families and we appreciated the large dining table. We really enjoyed our stay".

Wonderful Weekend at Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the beautiful home with its wonderful views of Monterey Bay. It was large and very comfortable with a lot of space that no one was underfoot. We loved sitting out in the patio because the weather was perfect. And the guys loved the game room or man cave to watch the Sports Channels. It was a perfect weekend at Toms' Family Vacation Home.

Awesome house, location and overall experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely fantastic, better than the pictures even show. Very spacious and comfortable floorplan. It has been updated very nicely and the game room is an awesome area for hanging out/watching a game. The thing I enjoyed most was how effortless the experience was from the owner. He was very pleasant and accomadating and made the trip more relaxing. We would definitely consider staying again.

The perfect Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

How do you house 9 adults and a bunch of small children for a week and leave wanting more? Rent this home! The proximity to the ocean, Aquarium, Cannery Row, shopping... all made life easy and restful.

The beds were comfortable and the baths new and modern. The steam shower was a big hit with those returning from a long bike ride on the bike path. We cooked, BBQ'd, ate out, played, read, laughed, walked, rode bikes and scooters, enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets from the sun porch and most importantly, made family memories that will last a lifetime.

This home is definately one we will come back to.

A Family Summer Tradition

  • 5 of 5

This was the 5th year our family was able to spend our vacation together in this wonderful home. We can't say enough about how , welcoming, charming, and well-maintained this property is. The patio and Coach House are an exceptional "add-on" for relaxed gatherings late in the afternoon after beach time or aquarium visits. The bedrooms are comfortable and attractively furnished, the kitchen has a great assortment of necessities, making it easy to feel like you're "home". To be able to spend time in this treasure of a home in this gorgeous location is a true gift, for which we are ever so grateful.

5 Stars!! Wonderful Home, Excellent Location, Ideal Holiday Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for ten nights in Tom's beautiful and spacious home in Pacific Grove. When we arrived we were very impressed with the space and overall feel of the house. It was really was a home away from home for us! The family room is a great size. The dining room has beautiful timber panelling. The view looking out through the porch is nice to wake up every morning for ten days to views of the Pacific Ocean!

The house offers loads of dining space and numerous spots to sit and relax and enjoy the views! Outside there is a patio with dining table and chairs, a BBQ and fire pit. We enjoyed several evenings dining alfresco here! Of course the external tap room offers another separate area to chill out, chat or listen to music. This home is great for big groups as there is plenty of space to enjoy, including plenty of off street parking.

Location wise it is ideal! One block from the ocean! A very short stroll to cafes, restaurants, an excellent supermarket made our stay very easy. There is a great coastal path one block from the house, perfect for running, cycling or walking which passes lovers point and continues on along the oceans edge! You will likely meet some friendly little grey squirrels along this path! The little beach at lovers point was quiet and the water calm; ideal for our kids to splash about in! We felt extremely safe in this home and area.

It is very easy walking distance to cannery row, the fabulous aquarium and in the other direction downtown Pacific Grove. It is also a great base to explore the California coastline.

Tom is a true gentleman and could not have been more helpful! I highly recommend this stunning house and hope to return some day! -Anna

Wonderful old house with four separate sitting areas,

  • 5 of 5

We had four couples, one grandma and couple little kids. Two blocks beach, five to aquarium. Couldn't beat it. Special treat one bedroom and bath set aside ideal for the family with kids.

It is an old house with usual quirks, windows that don't open kind of things. I loved it but if want 5 star Hyatt might not be ideal. The bathrooms have been amazingly remodeled. Very well designed kitchen. Glorious convection stove, lots of dishes, pots and pans etc.
