The location is ideal and the layout worked really well for us!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved celebrating the holidays in beautiful Pacific Grove. We ended up doing a lot of cooking in the house and thus would have appreciated if the knives were of better quality and/or sharp but that was a minor drawback and ultimately did not really detract from our experience.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Location was amazing. Ocean view and walking distance to the beach and downtown Pacific Grove. The house was very roomy and fit our family (teenager and preschooler and 2 adults) perfectly. Our teen loved the studio as it was her own space. Appreciate that the owners keep the house well stocked with supplies too. Just note that there is no dishwasher or washing machine/dryer.

Lovely property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, spacious, on the coast, walking distance to lots of places. This property has plenty of room for extra visitors and is well stocked with supplies you might need (from children's toys to condiments and towels). Passes to the aquarium were a great addition and it is within walking distance. Had a lovely time, would definitely return.

About The Owner

Pete is retired and Shirley is a self-employed Real Estate Broker. We both love to travel with family and friends. Our favorite things to do in PG are walking along the path to the Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf, searching the beaches for sea glass and eating fresh seafood and chowder at Phil's Fish House at Moss Landing. We also love to drive through 17 Mile Drive and Pebble beach area with our brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Linda and winding up in Carmel for a bowl of red chowder at Flahrety's completes our day.

We have always enjoyed sharing this place with our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, especially spreading out our tarps and hanging out at Lover's Point for the Feast of the Lanterns events.

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

Why The Owner chose Pacific Grove

After our brother and sister-in-law moved to Pacific Grove in 1994, we started to visit them and fell in love with the Monterey Peninsula and the quaint little retreat community of Pacific Grove.

What makes this house unique

The short walking distance to so many amenities makes every day a new adventure. Whether we want to lay on the beach, eat at a five star restaurant, comb the local antique stores, or picnic in the park it's never far from home.

Guests in our home will have access to two guest passes to experience the amazing Monterey Bay Aqarium.

Pacific Grove has many events throughout the year to attract you to enjoy this retreat community.

One of our favorite rituals is to visit the local Pacific Grove farmers market where we listen to live music, load up on fresh fruits and veggies, grab a wonderful street side dinner and sip our coffee from a local coffee shop...that's when we're not taking advantage of the many world class golf courses in the area.


House is located within yards of a beautiful and well maintained bike and walking path that runs parallel with the coastal line. Lovers Point, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Outlet shopping, and world famous Canner Row are all within a comfortable walk. Plentiful golfing, hiking, and 17 Mile Drive will offer you all the natural scenery you could want! Pebble Beach, Carmel By The Sea, and Santa Cruz are all within a short drive.
