Guestbook comments from the owner

The description of the cottage matched our needs, and the location was perfect. We've never shared a rental with another couple before, and it worked very well for all of us. Having two bathrooms makes all the difference. It's a charming house in a quiet, but friendly neighborhood of similar homes. Everything inside is fresh, clean, and very well maintained.

We were busy every day and enjoyed evening strolls to the main part of town, just a few blocks away. Pacific Grove is our favorite location to stay anywhere on Monterey Bay. The Monterey Aquarium is spectacular, and the two guest passes are a welcome bonus, as you need to go more than once.

We will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends, and we hope to stay there again ourselves.

Pacific Grove Victorian Cottage

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in a number of these cottages over the years. The renovation of this one was particularly well executed. The layout is such that there is a great deal of usable space in a small cottage. its one of the few that is actually warm in the winter

Adorable getaway for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable Christmas week here and loved coming home every evening from our adventures on the Monterey Peninsula to this bright and cozy place. Wonderful location on a quiet street just a few flat blocks from downtown PG---we brought our bikes and only needed the car once during the whole week. (The kids loved walking to Pavel's for breakfast pastries.) Owner Gary has done a thoughtful update of this turn-of-the-century Victorian; the modernized kitchen is a highlight and has a big farmhouse sink and lots of counter space for cooking family dinners. Gary was a wonderful host and took care of some minor appliance issues promptly even during the middle of the holidays, which we really appreciated! Highly recommended.

Cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Cute quiet and great for 4 people. The place is very clean which is the most important thing to me, we enjoyed it a lot. It would be nice to have had more toilet paper, 1 roll for each bathroom is being kinda stingy, other than that no complaints. We never used the TV or did any cooking so can't tell you anything about the kitchen supplies. But from what we saw everything you needed was there. Such cute decor. Although i would not want to stay here during the summer as there is really no private outside area. A small back yard. Seeing that we were gone most of the day it didn't bother us. I would rent it again for a 2-3 day stay.

Owner's Response: Sorry there was a misunderstanding regarding the suppling of paper products (i.e. toilet paper), but it clearly states in the Check In Instructions that while all sheets and towels are provided, paper products are provided for only the first day or two. Not quite sure what is meant by "no private outside area" when there's a fence enclosed two tiered wooden deck in the back yard (with table and chairs).

Amazing location, nice house 4.5 stars!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Pacific Grove/Monterey very much and this house's central location was a big part of that. We walked everywhere-to the amazing bakery and grocery store (5 min,) to the stunning bay walk (15 minutes with much gawking) and to the Aquarium (25 min with time spent admiring seals.) The house itself is very nicely restored and feels very comfortable and homelike. There are enough vases and antiques I'm not sure I'd recommend this place with toddlers. The only issue was with the master bed which creaked whenever anyone moved-it was very comfortable but a bit noisy.
