LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION!!!

Undoubtedly one of Monterey Bay's hidden gems! Our ocean view home has a beautiful view of Lover's Point and is perfectly located near EVERYTHING Pacific Grove has to offer. Enjoy the panoramic ocean view while walking along Monterey Bay's recreation trail which is just outside the door. Walk just one block to all of Pacific Grove's fantastic restaurants and shops. View the most amazing underwater sea creatures and wildlife at the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium less than a mile away in Cannery Row.

Our home was professionally remodeled down to the studs in 2006 and kept as a private vacation home. Each room has been professionally decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture and designer selected accessories. It has never been available as a rental until now. It features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout, custom mahogany cabinetry, custom mahogany doors and windows, new window coverings, skylights and old world textures and arches. It won the Preservation Award from the Heritage Society of Pacific Grove for restoration in exemplary fashion and retaining original exterior form and features.

The beautiful gas fireplace welcomes you into the living room and is ready to keep you warm and toasty while you enjoy the view of Lover's Point. A large LCD flat screen TV and all the channels you could ever want to watch are ready to entertain you.

The gourmet kitchen has Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances and custom made butcher block counter tops. Tumbled stone tiles accent the walls. It's stocked with everything you'll need to prepare and serve your meals. The romantic bath is beautifully constructed with travertine tile and features a Jacuzzi brand Solon Spa with a luxuriously relaxing whirlpool and therapeutically effervescent jets. It comfortably accommodates two people.

The master bedroom has a new Hotel brand king size pillow top mattress. The guest room has a new Beautyrest queen. Both are amazingly comfortable. Each room has a new LCD flat screen TV. Linens and towels as well as a washer and dryer are provided to give you all the comforts of home.

Open the french doors and enjoy your coffee and a view of the ocean each morning on the backyard patio. Fun filled days can end here romantically each evening next to the warm fire pit. If you like to cook outdoors, a stainless steel gas barbeque is ready to grill your favorite dinner.

For those that enjoy culinary perfection a one block walk will put you in the middle of some of the best dining Monterey Bay has to offer. Pepper's (the best gourmet Mexican food ever - and a local favorite) is literally a block up the street. You'll also find Passionfish (excellent seafood and a favorite of Rachael Ray), Fandango (try their famous rack of lamb and don't miss the Grand Marnier souffle for dessert), Joe Rombi's (for the best Italian around) and a host of other restaurants to wow your taste buds within a stroll.

For the adventurous vacationer just walk out the front door and walk, run, bike or skate for miles on the Monterey Bay recreation trail. You can literally enjoy the view while walking to the aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Monterey. The hardcore bicyclists and runners can follow the trail for 18 miles from Pacific Grove all the way to Castroville with access to Seaside and Marina.

Surfers, kayakers, scuba divers and sunbathers can just walk across the street and down the stairs (Yes! Its that close!) to Lover's Point beach and start your adventure. On busy weekends you'll see people launching here all day long. Grab some lunch at the snack bar and you'll never have to leave the beach.

Everyone will enjoy a stroll through Lover's Point Park. Weddings are ongoing every few hours, artists are painting seascapes and everyone is enjoying the day.

You'll love our home. Its luxuriously comfortable, central to everything and easily accessible. Give us a call and we'll be happy to tell you all about it and help you plan a great vacation.

About Owner

We are the typical California family with busy lives and kids that are rushing in all directions at the same time. When we play, we play hard and try to do it all whenever possible. Our vacation time is no different. We try to experience everything we can during the day and relax at night.

We enjoy Pacific Grove and all the activities that the area has to offer. Being a family, variety is important and Monterey Bay provides it all!

Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Owner chose Central Coast

Monterey Bay is one of the most beautiful places along California's coastline. And it has so much to offer. It is literally a vacation utopia for the first time visitor or the regular guest.

Growing up, both our families vacationed in the Pacific Grove area. A lot of lasting memories were created and will never be forgotten. Now with a new generation of family members, we are ready to make a new vacation memories for our children to carry forward.

This home is perfect to do just that. When we found it we knew this would be the place where we would spend quality time together and enjoy each other's company.

What makes this house unique

We are an active family that enjoys being outside. Hiking, biking, fishing, golfing and being at the beach are some of the activities that we do on a regular basis. Our home is central to all of it. No matter what the adventure will be we can either walk to it or drive to it without too much effort.

If we don't feel like going too far, the Pacific Grove museum and library are half a block up the street. Our kids enjoy the play structures at Caledonia Park just two blocks away. Even better, the kids love Dennis the Menace Park near Fisherman's Wharf (a definite 'don't miss' if you have kids) about five minutes away. And any of the daily things we may need to do like banking, eating, shopping, groceries and the post office are all one block away on Lighthouse Avenue.

At the end of the day we always enjoy coming back to the old world charm of our home. It's completely remodeled and everything in it is NEW. The designer furniture and accessories are so luxurious and comfortable. Being there is relaxing and feels warm and happy. One of our favorite things to do is sit by a roaring fire either outside on the patio by the fire pit or in the living room next to the fireplace. Sometimes a quiet, warm soak in the Jacuzzi whirlpool spa is even better. Its a great way to end the day along with something warm to drink.

Not too many places can offer everything that we enjoy in our home. we love the accessibility, comfort and adventure that we experience every time we are here!

Home Sweet Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This year my husband and I have rediscovered Pacific Grove. We LOVE this town! After staying at 3 different B&B in PG we decided renting a home would be a nice option, especially because we wanted to introduce daughter, son-in-law, and 7 month old grand daughter to this "patch of heaven on earth". How fortunate for us we found this beautiful Spanish Villa! Working with the owner Barbara was easy, I felt as if I was communicating with an old friend. I appreciated her constant communication while completing the rental agreement process and we were thrilled with her excellent suggestions for restaurants, bakeries and local hot spots. And as they say ... location, location, location. It truly doesn't get much better than this. It was such a joy to walk out the door and be literally feet from Lovers Point Park & Beach. Because of its unique east-facing location, it is also one of the only spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water. Lovers Point is a popular spot for picnics, volleyball, and scenic photography. We especially enjoyed a surrey ride along the Monterey County Coastal Recreation Trail, which leads to Cannery Row. ~ We love the fact that the location of this home makes everything in downtown PG in with walking distance.

~ Barbara's home is elegant and decorated in warm autumnal colors. Attention to detail is evident and much love and care surrounds you in every room. The beds are very comfortable and the large spa tub/shower was just right for our baby to "swim & soak". We enjoyed sitting by the fire in the small, but very lovely, lush garden courtyard, and we also kept warm by the charming indoor fireplace. The home is small but the bedrooms are separated for privacy. One can't help but feel a pleasant sense of days gone by in this adorable, historic Pacific Grove Home. We look forward to future vacations to this special home. It is really a spectacular place to make life long memories. It feels great knowing we have a Home Away from Home in Pacific Grove. Thank you Barbara, your kindness goes beyond words! TL

Sheer perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are currently staying in this awesome house and I couldn't wait until we check out in 3 days to write a very positive review of this home. There is no way you could ask for a more perfect location! It is steps from Lovers Point with the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. Barbara the owner is very easy to talk to. Just a lovely and reasonable lady who really just wants you to thoroughly enjoy your stay! I give this rental my most enthusiastic five stars ever!!!! Loved it

A little slice of heaven in Pacific Grove!

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO rental is extraordinary. The location of the home is ideal- literally across the street from the ocean and a lovely paved walk along the beach. You can walk, bike, or take a stroller 5-10 minutes and you’re at Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Plus, there’s beachfront access to a little sandy beach and a stand where you can rent boats, bikes, and grab a bite to eat (be sure to try the calamari sandwich. It's delicious!). If you walk a few blocks in the other direction, you’re right in the heart of downtown Pacific Grove with its charming little restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with block after block of quaint Victorian homes— each cuter than the next. You can tell that many of the homeowners have lived there for years, giving the neighborhood a very homey and residential feel. Now for the house itself. What can I say! It was perfect in every way. The appointments in the kitchen were upscale and deluxe. Although there was only one bathroom, it was large and comfortable with an excellent shower and plush towels. Four adults (plus a baby) stayed in the house and we managed quite well with a single bathroom. The house is relatively small, but the bedrooms are separated so everyone has privacy. One of the rooms has French doors opening into a lovely little courtyard, giving it an open, airy feel. The living room is large enough for everyone to congregate and we spent many happy hours there as a family. The owner is one of the kindest, most caring VRBO owners I’ve ever dealt with. She is warm yet professional and she obviously cares a great deal about her property— AND her renters. She is great about getting right back to you when you call, email, or text. I hope to visit Pacific Grove many more times with a stay in this charming home. Highly recommended.

We loved our stay at this property. The house was beautiful, comfortable, clean and in a great location. The house is steps away from the coastal path where we enjoyed biking, long walks and marine life. Included with our stay were passes to the Aquarium, which we enjoyed twice.

Working with the owner was an extremely pleasant experience. She was always available, helpful and prompt in answering my many questions about the property and location. As an example, my husband came down with the flu and she graciously offered to let us stay longer past the required check out time.

In addition, Pacific Grove is a lovely town. Good restaurants, friendly people and stunning ocean life. Loved the house, loved the location!

Home away from home... And at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was terrific! The home was everything we had hoped for. We enjoyed all of the comforts of home, including the great kitchen with modern appliances and cooking gear, plates and glasses & silverware, and also a good assortment of spices. The beds were very comfortable as was the living space. When we were taking a break or winding down at the end of the day, it was also nice to sit and relax with cable TV or using the high speed Wi-Fi.

The owner was very responsive and helpful, with alot of tips about local favorite restaurants and markets and places to see.

The location just a couple doors from the ocean was a major plus. We would definitely stay here again.

This villa is truly home away from home! The house is absolutely gorgeous and is equipped with pretty much everything you may need. The location is prime! i can't stress that enough. From the moment we walked in till the last day we felt so comfortable and cozy. The house shows nothing but pride. The owner was seriously the nicest person ever which made our stay that much better. Thank you for opening up your home to us and hope to be back soon!.
