THIS PROPERTY IS ALWAYS CLEAN AND SANITARY, WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON THIS FOR YOUR SAFETY!

Our Mermaid Beach Cottage is only one half block from the the ocean. This is not a condo or apartment - it is a charming two bedroom cottage on a slow safe one way lane. Our home is fully furnished and located right below the Lovers Point Ocean Vista.

Pacific Grove California is praised as 'quaint and peaceful' (Frommer's Travel Guide) and was named one of Lonely Planet's Top 5 secret California Escapes.

This seaside town is home to the Monarch Butterfly Reserve and some of the most spectacular views of the California coastline. Stroll to Lover's Point or walk the few short blocks into town for a great breakfast or lunch and shop for unique gifts!

Take a magical walk along the coastal trail about a mile which leads directly to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, one of the most sought after destinations anywhere!

The sleepy Harbor Seals may be beached at the Hopkins Marine Station reserve for you to marvel at.

Explore historic Cannery Row and continue on to Fisherman's Wharf where some of the best seafood restaurants await you! Begin your scenic journey with the 17 Mile Drive taking you directly to the world famous 'Pebble Beach Golf Resort'! The renowned AT&T Pro Am Golf Tournament is held at Pebble Beach every February and the stars are always out!

Bring your clubs - the Pacific Grove 18 hole Golf Course is very close to the cottage and the green fees are reasonable. (here's a tip - play the back nine in the afternoon into the evening for an unbelievable sunset experience!)

Spend some time in charming Carmel By The Sea which contain wonderful art galleries, restaurants and of course the 'Eastwood Family' presence. The Asilomar retreat and Point Pinos lighthouse offer amazing ocean scenery.

If you have time - take the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway drive south to Point Lobos and continue down into Big Sur! Surf City USA 'Santa Cruz' with it's famous Beach Boardwalk is just a short trip north! Ride the roller coasters and enjoy outdoor concerts by some of the finest entertainers! Be sure to stop at Capitola on the way, one of the cutest unique coastal towns you've ever seen!

We recommend a minimum stay of three nights since there is so much to see. You'll find that it goes by way too quickly, once you get here you won't want to leave!

About Stevie and Deb

We are two working professionals both Aquarius born and raised in the great Golden State of California. We love the waves, water, ocean, beach, surf, and sand and our lifelong dream was to have a wonderful place by the sea to relax and be peaceful. We are delighted to be able to share our little piece of paradise with you - come visit our Beach Cottage, you won't want to leave!

Why Stevie and Deb chose Central Coast

The Monterey Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places in the world easily accessible from the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California and the Sacramento and Central valleys. You can be here by car within two to four hours or fly directly into San Jose or the Monterey Airport if you like. Once you get to our Beach Cottage you don't need a vehicle but if you have one - we have off street parking for you.

There are endless reasons to come visit. From the historic town of Monterey with Cannery Row, the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf with many fine restaurants to the renowned Pebble Beach Golf Resort to the quaint little town of Carmel By The Sea to the Asilomar Retreat, Point Lobos and the incredibly beautiful drive down to Big Sur. If you drive north you can visit our own California Surf City town of Santa Cruz and the very unique Capitola! The list goes on and on!

The town of Pacific Grove California is nestled between the communities of Monterey and Pebble Beach. It is famous for being the 'Butterfly Capital' of the world and within it resides the famous Monarch Butterfly reserve. The population is small, only about 15,000 and is one of the best kept secrets anywhere. The pace is slow, mellow and you are actually able to relax when you get here!!

What makes this cottage unique

Being close to the ocean is peaceful for the soul. It's not often that you are able to do this in a small town that is modern enough to have anything you might need. Come visit the Mermaid Beach Cottage, slow your life down and have a wonderful time!

The perfect retreat. The home is cute, very clean, great location! Can't wait to return.

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to enjoy a girls get-away and to our great fortune, this cute cottage was available. The owner Stevie, helped make it happen in less than an hour. We didn't cook, but the kitchen had everything. The two bedrooms were very comfortable with clean bedding and blankets. Flat screen TV and comfy sofa. The loccation was perfect for walks along the ocean path and local restaurants downtown Pacific Grove. We loved every minute and can't wait to return. Thank you Stevie!

Amazing place, just as described!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for the weekend and this place was beautiful, clean, near tons of restaurants and steps from the water! The beds were so comfortable, the bathroom was unreal and the kitchen was great for cooking. We cannot wait to come back and feel so lucky to have found this gem! The owners were helpful, hospitable and very friendly, thank you!

Mermaid Cottage February 2017

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (me, my sister, and our parents (late 80's) loved our 3 nights at Mermaid Cottage! It's warm and cozy, and only 1/2 block walk to the ocean. We had an electrical issue which Stevie and Deb came and addressed promptly. We even got to meet them and visit - they're a blast! The Aquarium passes were a plus, and the aquarium is fabulous. We will definitely stay there again, if we make a return visit to the area.

Great location with cute beachie feel

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at the Mermaid cottage! The house was incredibly cozy and comfortable- small but perfect for our needs. Does have a nice big shower- but note no bath which was a fun switch for our kids. Beds were comfortable and cable was a fun treat for our family. Ocean is just one street down with awesome trails- bring running shoes for one of the best ocean jogs! But the best part was of course the aquarium! My kids never wanted to leave! The passes were so nice- we went 3 days in a row and were able to go at times when it was less crowded. Go up the street for pastries at pavel's backerie- best ever!!!! But get there right at 7 am as they sell out and once it's gone it gone- bring cash. Overall a great quick getaway!

Completely satisfied

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time at the Mermaid Cottage and we are very pleased yet again. We love the location, watching TV in bed, walking along the bay and to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, reading in the living room, and cooking in the very serviceable kitchen. We will definitely be back! A big thanks to Stevie and Deb.
