THIS PROPERTY IS ALWAYS CLEAN AND SANITARY, A SAFE HAPPY PLACE FOR CHILDREN AND THE ELDERLY.

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!

Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Pacific Grove, CA, USA:
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!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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!
