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 Pacific Grove
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.

Big Sur Run Weekend
I booked this for myself and a few of my lady runner friends and their families as a convenient place to stay for the Big Sur Marathon (we "only" did the 11 mile run). Plenty of parking for 3 or 4 cars, walking distance to the aquarium and beach. Enough rooms and bathrooms for all. Nice, large sectional in the TV room fit everybody, and there was plenty of room in the house for everybody to find a spot to hang out. Plenty of soft towels. The back patio has an awesome fire pit! Everything was clean and well kept. We all enjoyed our stay and would stay here again! When you total the cost of individual hotel rooms for all of us, this house was well worth the price. Lovely home with lovely views!
Perfect place for a family vacation.
The house was as charming as in the pictures. We were a large group, but everyone had plenty of room. There are lots of bathrooms too. The kitchen plates and appliances were much more than we were expecting. The location is amazing. The weather was also great, but I guess Tom can't take credit for that. Everything was very clean. Tom was easy to reach. We all had a great time in this charming, comfortable environment.
beautiful views, comfortable home
Everything was just as advertise and lovely. It was easy to get around, to the ocean and the aquarium. Very comfortable home for a family vacation.
Loved this cute house. We enjoyed our stay and all that the town has to offer.
We booked this for our 40th Birthday. Myself and four other girlfriends enjoyed the quaint house and town. Tom was very professional when speaking with him. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit. Tom gave wonderful recommendations and Monterey wine county was fabulous as well.
Lovely Pacific Grove home with many wonderful features.
The house was so clean and decorated in such a way that it was inviting and warm. We liked the location just minutes from the beach. Several good places that we walked to for breakfast. We took advantage of its proximity to Monterey and Carmel. We were lucky that the weather was ideal. We would definitely rent this house again.
Close in and comfy
This was a great house for your group of 9 women as it has plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. We enjoyed the large dining table and opportunity to heat up our own food and gab around the table. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms remodeled and very nice with excellent shower heads. The big sectional in the TV room was great for relaxing and talking. We had our challenges with operating the TV. So many remotes! The owner does not provide much in the way of kitchen supplies other than paper towels. It would have been nice if they provided either paper coffee filters or a reusable gold mesh filter. We unsuccessfully used paper towels until someone went and purchased some paper filters. We enjoyed gathering around the outdoor table on the very private patio. The garage is converted to a TV/game/party space but we did not have any reason to use it. It smelled a little musty but that isn't the reason didn't use it, the house just has plenty of gathering space. We would highly recommend and would rent this house again if our group decides to return to Monterey.
