About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located in beautiful, historic downtown Pacific Grove, there's plenty to enjoy within walking distance such as local shops, restaurants and the theater. You are also only a couple blocks from a walking path with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean coastline that leads down to the famous Lover's Point, a great calm beach for all ages.

The private atmosphere of the cottage provides a quiet separation from the hustle and bustle of Monterey, yet a short 5 minute drive to the famous Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Lighthouse shopping and dining.

The cottage has two separate bedrooms with queen beds and comfortably sleeps two in each. There is a single full bathroom between them. The kitchen is open to the living room with bar seating for dining.

Two aquarium passes are included that may be used multiple days. They are located in the house upon arrival. No need to request them ahead of time!

Dissapointing, for no good reason; could be great.

  • 2 of 5

This is a tough review to write as I feel I really need to write an accurate review of our stay but am a bit puzzled as to why our experience was not the normal 4 & 5 star stay that this cottage seems to be getting. There is basic maintenance not being done on this property; it doesn’t need to be remodeled, it just needs a handyman and a few hours to fix some minor issues and one serious issue.

Within the first hour of arriving I had the back of one of the stools at the breakfast bar come off in my hand when I tried to move it and the door handle to a bedroom fall off when trying to open the door. Also the shower diverter on the tap in the bathtub was broken and seemed to be stuck at about 80% shower. Most annoying was the shower curtain rod falling on me while I was in the shower; just little things that are easily fixable and not being done. We were fine with no AC on a very hot weekend as the cool evening air was lovely; however, the only way to get it in the house was to leave the front door wide open as none of the windows can be opened; if you don’t have AC the windows should work, no excuses. On our second night I decided to go and open the back door as well to facilitate some air movement and that is when I found the issue that really bothers me; the backdoor is barely secured at all. There is a knob and deadbolt that do not work in any way and small barrel bolt that does, but barely. The door could be opened from outside with a good shaking. For me, this reflects very poorly on the management of the property and the concern of the property owner for the renter’s safety and belongings; while the area appears to be safe and break-ins probably not a problem, they can happen. I had emailed the property contact the first morning about a couple of the maintenance issues and got no response until after we had checked out two days later.

The plus side is that the cottage could easily be made much better very easily, inside a day for all the issues I have mentioned except the windows. The location is fabulous with many shops and restaurants within a short walk, the aquarium and Cannery Row is about a 20 minute walk along the coast trail.. While small the cottage is well supplied and very functional. There is only an eating bar with two stools so larger groups may not be comfortable. The included 2 aquarium passes were great and all the kitchen appliances and the TV system worked fine.

weekend

  • 5 of 5

Clean, wonderful location around corner from restaurants and stores, photos reflect actual property. Back yard tidy with grill and table and chairs but a neighbor's property is very messy which is unfortunate; but so many beautiful outdoor options in Pacific Grove it didn't bother us. Close walk or bike ride to ocean. Near Lovers Point where you can rent Kayaks and bikes; Aquarium passes included, easy to communicate with owner, photos on VRBO reflect actual property. Can park a car out front safely or across the street.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with all the basics. The oceanfront park just down the street was worth the trip from Maryland's eastern shore. We will be back!

Pacific Grove Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Yellow Cottage and had an awesome time. The cottage was located close to coffee houses, restaurants and walking distance to the aquarium. It was better than staying at a local hotel that could accommodate 5. It was clean, spacious enough and the 2 free tickets to the aquarium were great. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely cozy, clean home

  • 5 of 5

Appears to have been recently remodeled, and all furnishing, housewares, linens, etc were high quality, making you feel like this is your home and not just a place to stay. So close to Lighthouse Ave for restaurants and even walkable to the Aquarium with little kids! Loved the benefit of having two Aquarium passes - what a great perk! Comfy beds, quiet street, and cozy open kitchen/living room floor plan all made for a relaxing place to be in between activities. Thank you, Yellow Cottage!
