About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, a steam shower, large TV room, dining & game room

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 9 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.

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".

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion and this house was perfect! The number of bedrooms allowed everyone to have there own space, while the game room and the family room, with great sectional, allowed us to gather together for playing games and hanging out. The number of bathrooms really helped with everyone getting ready in the morning. We rented a car but rarely used it as the house is so close to the beach, to the Aquarium and to various restaurants that we walked almost everywhere. Mr. Keanu was very easy to work with and very accommodating. The whole family agreed we would love to rent this house again!

Charming spot in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

We had a group out for a golf weekend and stayed at Tom's lovely home in Pacific Grove. It's a great location within walking distance from Cannery Row's bars and restaurants and a short drive to world class golf. The home has a beautiful view, a comfortable and fun backyard and garage/taproom which is great for hanging out with the group. Everything was clean and well tailored and there are lots of sleeping options. It was unanimous that our group hopes to return in the future. Thank you Tom for the hospitality!

Perfect Combination

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect combination of size, comfort, location and genuineness. We had 3 couples and 2 children who were in Monterery to support a family member departing on an epic adventure. We needed a home base that was comfortable and located close to the Beach and other key attractions. With the proximity to all of these within walking distance made for relaxing time . We were able to host a dinner party with a social in the large outdoor patio/ combined party room . The kids had room to play . Very well maintained and everything worked well. Would recommend for families or groups to use to tour a great area.

Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year in a row that our entire family has vacationed in this wonderful home, and we've already put in our request for next year. The home is spacious, but homey. Comfortable enough for a family with children, yet elegant enough for the adults in the party to feel pampered. The furnishings are well maintained, the home is clean, the owner is very easy to work with. We were able to walk to Cannery Row, the Aquarium, Surrey Rentals, and grocery store; and were within a five minute drive of Asilomar Beach along the beautiful Monterey Bay. We can recommend this home with total confidence!

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this house. It is in the perfect location, walking distance the aquarium, beach, shopping and restaurants. The house has everything you need. The owners have decorated it beautifully and most importantly it is comfortable. It is the perfect place for a large family vacation. We will definitely return. Oh....and this time we were so fortunate to be there while the Western Gulls were nesting. Got to see 2 baby gulls on the roof in their nest. AWESOME!
