Overview

About the property

2br/1ba, Ocean views and 50 yards from the coast

This charming 2br, 1ba was owned by one family for many years. Recently purchased from the estate, it has been extensively remodeled and upgraded. All new: paint, landscape, windows, roof, tile floors, granite counter tops, fixtures, decorating, and lots of upgrades.

Best of all - it is 50 yards from the coast with expansive bay views from the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and full-length rear deck!! You can stroll miles of coastal trail from Pacific Grove to Marina.

Located between Lover's Point and the golf course, this is an outstanding location for diving and kayaking. Walk to your favorite eateries and attractions - the Aquarium, Cannery Row, PassionFish, Asilomar and the Pt Pinos Grill at the golfcourse. There's plenty of room for kayaks, bikes, golf clubs, and dive gear - so bring the toys!

Want to enjoy wildlife? We have watched whales and porpoises from the living room, spot sea otters and seals on a daily basis, and frequently have deer walking down the street in front of the house! Monarch butterflies can be found all over town in the fall, and there's more exotic wildlife at the aquarium. Comes with 2 guest passes to Monterey Bay Aquarium!

This home is located on Balboa Ave - one of the most desirable streets, in the best neighborhood in Pacific Grove. It's set one street back from Ocean Front, so you get to enjoy being close to the ocean, with more solitude and privacy.

Inside, find two spacious bedrooms with very comfortable queen pillowtop beds, and warm comforters. A trundle bed in the second bedroom expands sleeping capacity to five. The large living room has relaxing seating for many, while enjoying a glass of wine and watching the bay. On cooler nights, enjoy the fireplace and play music from your ipod on our stereo, or watch a movie!

The kitchen is bright, cheery, and very functional. In the morning, watch the sunrise over the bay from the cozy kitchen table, while enjoying Pavel's pastries and a latte or cappucino. In the evenings, whether making pasta for friends, or bbq'ing on the rear deck - you'll enjoy the accessibility to the rest of your party and all of the amenities.

Equipped with wireless networking, 2 HDTV's, premium cable, and iPod hookups. Dishwasher in the kitchen and washer and dryer in the garage.

About Ron and Christy Lloyd

We are native Californians, have owned our home in PG for since 2006, and underwent an extensive remodel so we can move here fulltime. We absolutely love our neighborhood and our neighbors - and know you will as well. Hiking, golf, fishing and kayaking run in our family, so we've got plenty of experience to give you good advice on all of the local activities

We have excellent recommendations for masseuses, restaurants, dive charters, whale-watching charters, kayaking beaches, and the all-important bakery.

Ron and Christy Lloyd purchased this house in 2012

Why Ron and Christy Lloyd chose Central Coast

We didn't start out to get into the hospitality business, but when this charming house became available, we decided to take the plunge. We have traveled all over the world and know what we'd like to see in a vacation property, so we made major investments in remodeling the home, and did it all with the vacationing traveler in mind. We wanted to create a space where we would want to spend a weekend, a week, or a month.

What makes this house unique

We're very close to the trail, golf course, Lover's Point, Asilomar, Cannery Row and the Wharf - you can park the car and enjoy a short walk to every possible amenity. And when you're done with an invigorating day on Monterey Bay, entertain with beautiful bay views on the full length rear deck.

Map

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is slightly over 1 mile away. Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf are also favorite attractions. We have whales nearly year-round, peaking in the spring and summer months. And monarch butterflies flock to PG in the fall.

Lovely well stocked cottage in a fabulous location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, thoughtfully furnished, very well stocked, and in a great location. Close to town but quiet and easy parking. We loved watching otters play in the bay from the dining room window. Owners very easy to work with. We have rented many homeaway properties in the past and we HIGHLY recommend this one!

Perfect Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a little getaway with our little dog and 2 small kids (2y and 5yo).

According to my husband, the photos do not do the home justice and it is much nicer in person. All basic amenities were provided, the house was clean and the beds comfortable with nice, warm bedding. The home is essentially child proof (except for a few breakable that were easily placed out of reach - sorry, I may have hidden a vase in the closet).

The home is perfectly situated close to the beach and just a short drive from many attractions. The aquarium passes were a nice surprise!

Thank you again for sharing your home with us. We highly recommend and would definitely return.

Beautiful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time at this gem. House is very well kept and maintained, very spacious for one big family or two couples traveling together.

Brand new amenities.

You are essentially across the street from the ocean, great views, with easy access to the Monterey acquarium and all the restaurants.

Ron is great to deal with and made sure we had everything needed for a perfect stay.

Would definitely recommend or stay again.

Well-appointed house close to the water

  • 5 of 5

I rented the home for my mother’s 89th birthday, and it was perfect. The house is bright, nicely furnished, spotless and comfortable. Even though it is close to Oceanview (the street that runs along the bay), it is very quiet. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into making sure guests have what they need. There is a lovely view of the bay from the dining room and deck. It takes only minutes to walk to the bayside path. Historic downtown PG is about a 20 minute walk from the house, as is the point at which the ocean and bay meet (but you’ll want to take longer to stop and watch the birds, squirrels, otter, etc).

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5

We knew the specific area we wanted to stay and although it took a while to find a smaller place for a single family wanting some "chill time", this was our jewel of a find. The house was amazing, clean, comfortable, homey, and just a great place with a nice view in most rooms. The pictures showed the true house with all it's nice touches! Nice walks along the bay, tide pools, beach time, just perfect for the few nights we had for a quick getaway! We will most certainly recommend this cute little yellow house! Thanks for the hospitality!
