This spacious and sun kissed penthouse is the perfect home away from home. Our building is one the most historic Victorians right in the heart of downtown. It is also the most photographed building in downtown Pacific Grove which we also call 'America's Last Home Town.' This charming penthouse has great views of downtown and the Monterey Bay. This is a completely furnished unit decorated in victorian charm and comforts of home with two (2) bedrooms and one (1) bath. This unit is perfect for up to four (4) guests. There is 24 hour off site parking. There is also a brand new custom kitchen beautifully decorated. The bathroom spacious and clean. There is also a washer and dryer available for your washing. Come enjoy breakfast downstairs before walking through the beautiful downtown area for great shopping, two short blocks to the ocean, next door to our movie theatre, and 1 mile to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. This unit is first class and very clean. Even though you are right in the downtown area, this unit is very quiet. Guests have said that it is more quiet than staying along the ocean drive.

This unit has beautiful hand scraped teak hardwood floors, high ceilings and is tastefully decorated. Curl up on the couch in the front bay window with a good book and enjoy looking at our downtown in action.

It is an easy 2 block walk to Lover's Point and the breathtaking regional trail that winds along the Monterey Bay. You can walk south around the Asilomar State Beach or north to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row & Fisherman's Wharf. Don't forget to visit our beautiful Point Pinos Lighthouse.

Hop in your car and you can drive to Pebble Beach (17 Mile Dr.). It is only 5 minutes away, 10 minutes to downtown Carmel, 20 minutes to Carmel Valley and 45 minutes to Big Sur.

About Mary Aliotti

We have owned this beautiful downtown Victorian since 2000. This building was built in 1893 and kept up with tender loving care. It is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in Pacific Grove. We own and operate our restaurant Victorian Corner which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoy visiting with our locals and also meeting new people from all over the world. We have two children that keep up very busy as well.

Mary Aliotti purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Mary Aliotti chose Pacific Grove

Since we have owned the building we always wondered what would be best to do with the penthouse above the restaurant. We are so proud and we know the space is so beautiful we just want to have it available for visitors to Pacific Grove to be able to experience our excitement.

What makes this townhome unique

It is amazing to wake up in the morning and look out the window to such and amazing view of downtown and Monterey Bay. It has such a great feeling of being in an authentic Victorian overlooking downtown and Monterey Bay.

Pacific Grove jewel

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in this wonderful penthouse above the family-owned and delicious restaurant. It was totally quiet, and we loved the location and ocean views. The kitchen and bathroom were fully and beautifully updated. I would definitely stay there again. The owners were great about being available to answer questions.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this place to propose to my girlfriend. The house has a ton of charm and the owners did a fantastic job on the remodel - modern bathroom and kitchen, but the rest of the place looks/feels original. It's right above a restaurant but has a separate private access. There was zero noise that we heard from the restaurant, which closes pretty early anyway, and it was a really cool experience to be right on the main street of Pacific Grove. I don't think there is any place quite like this in Pacific Grove where you can be on the main strip and in a charming room. Highly recommend for a unique experience. Mary was great to work with and incredibly nice as well.

Amazing Place - home away from home

What a fantastic find! Wonderful apartment within walking distance of the aquarium, Cannery Row and the magnificent Pacific Ocean and all its wildlife. The apartment is beautiful, very well kept and appealing. Mary & Dominic are the very best of folks and provide all the necessities. I'm so very grateful to my brother who found this place for us to stay and I will be back. Thanks to all of you!

We stayed at the Victorian Penthouse for three nights last month, and it was perfect. The location is great - everything is a 5 minute drive, and this area of downtown (Pacific Grove) was really cool. Everything was very clean, the furniture comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, really all the comforts of home. Mary was a pleasure to deal with on the phone, via email, and in person at the restaurant...which serves a tasty breakfast. We simply couldn't have had a better time and hope to return one day. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
