About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 1/2 bath, sleeps 7

You will discover why Pacific Grove calls itself “the last hometown,” in this pristine single-story ranch-style home whose traditional look has been updated for contemporary tastes. Imagine upscale Pottery Barn élan meets sun-drenched beach palette. This recently renovated three-bedroom two and one half bath cottage, which sleeps seven, is located in a quiet upscale neighborhood and makes a perfect getaway for family and friends to reconnect.

The location can't be beat. It is one street away from the Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, which follows the shoreline from beautiful Asilomar Beach around the point to Cannery Row and the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium.In addition to Esplanade Park, there is a tiny public succulent garden nearby. The friendly shops, restaurants and boutiques of downtown Pacific Grove are just a mile away. A picturesque lighthouse is a mere half-mile away, and a fine municipal golf course with ocean views that is the locals' best kept secret is a few blocks up the street. Carmel and Monterey are 10 minute drives.

This cheerful yellow house trimmed in white and teal has a classic feel with a curving stone path that leads to the front door and the tiled entry that opens to the comfortable living room. The interior has hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout. Family and friends can gather for visiting, playing games, puzzles or watching their favorite programs or movies on the 49' HDTV in the comfortable living room with its red-brick fireplace, cushy sofas and sturdy dark wood tables. You can see the ocean from the dining room that features a dark wood rectangular table that seats six and old-fashioned wrought-iron chandelier. Cooking will be a pleasure in the bright, fully-equipped kitchen with its well-conceived layout and pristine white cabinetry and appliances -- including new gas range, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Read a magazine or book and sip your morning coffee at a round oak table in a cozy breakfast nook.

Luxury linens will make you feel like royalty, especially in the master bedroom that has a Queen Bed with excellent mattress. The sparkling new master bathroom is tiled throughout and features dark wood cabinetry and a tub/shower. A second bedroom can sleep two in a king with Memory Foam topper that converts to two twins. The third bedroom is set up with 3 twin beds that can be converted to a King bed with a twin bed. A handsome second full bathroom has Corian counters and a tub/shower lined with gleaming sea-foam and white tiles. To make your stay more comfortable, we provide plush spa bathrobes, and over-sized towels and beach gear.

Watch the ever-changing light over Monterey Bay at sunset while you enjoy cocktails at a bistro table on a wooden deck that overlooks the back yard. A gas grill is provided. The completely enclosed back and side yard is perfect for privacy. For gourmet cooks, we also have an herb garden with 4 different of kind of herbs in our back yard. A washer and dryer are located in the one-car garage just off the kitchen. There is additional parking in the driveway and on the street. The house is completely level and there are no steps inside of the house.

Car: Recommended

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.

Other Activities: Whale, dolphin and sea otter watching.
