About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This beautiful Victorian received the 2004-2005 Award for best Pacific Grove historic home remodel from the Historical Society.

The perfectly restored home features two bedrooms (spaced for ultimate privacy with each

having access to their own bathrooms), a spacious and open living room/dining room combination as well as a custom designed kitchen, comfortable den, quaint backyard deck and a laundry room.

Stroll east a few blocks and find yourself among the downtown boutiques and stores and as well as many of the nearly 60 restaurants located in Pacific Grove. Travel west the same distance and you will be standing on the shore of majestic Monterey Bay.

Recreational opportunities (golf, biking, kayaking), shopping and dining experiences and sightseeing excursions (17 Mile Drive, Monterey Aquarium, Big Sur) are all within easy reach of Pacific Grove and the famous Monterey Peninsula.

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.

Well-located, charming turn of the century cottage provides a homey stay

  • 5 of 5

Located just a few blocks from restaurants, the ocean, parks, coffee shops and just a few miles from Monterey Aquarium, Carmel and Big Sur, this home was perfect for two couples for two weeks. We hiked in Carmel Valley, the redwoods of Santa Cruz and along the coast. Sitting in front of the fireplace was cozy for the rainy interludes. The kitchen has every needed appliance and dish and the beds were quite comfortable. Best of all, we met some wonderful neighbors! We hope to return!

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.
