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, and premium cable. Dishwasher in the kitchen, washer and dryer in the garage, and BBQ on the deck.

About Ron and Christy Lloyd

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 Pacific Grove
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.

Cozy house that was a perfect location from all that we wanted to see and explore!
Cozy house that was a perfect location from all that we wanted to see and explore! We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee while sitting in front of the living room fire and watching the boats sail in.
We have stayed at many properties and this VRBO was the best in supplies, kitchen utensils, etc, everything one would need and have in their own home. This was the perfect place for us to visit our daughter and son-in-law, who live in Pacific Grove, and be able to bring our dog. It is very much appreciated to have a home that allows pets. It meant a lot to us (I think the kids were more excited to see the dog than us) and we thank you. Also, many thanks for the wonderful bottle of wine, that too, was much appreciated :)
Perfect weekend house & location!
This was exactly what we wanted - also as described. Provided nice little extras - great to have passes to Aquarium . Was perfect for 4 of us - 3 generations. Perfect location for access to beach & bike rental & walking path.
Comfortable, spotless home in great location!
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again when we return to the area. The home is well stocked, super clean and very comfortable. The view is gorgeous! I highly recommend this hime if you are in the area!
Clean and quiet gem in a great location!
The house was the cleanest I’ve ever stayed in (and I am picky!). Very comfortable beds, awesome towels and great back porch. Walking distance to everything. Owners were great and super helpful. We loved the fireplace and watching otters during meals. House was pretty kid-proof too (for a 3-year-old). Super minor suggestions: a full-length mirror would be nice, as well as a fan for those who enjoy some white noise at night ( the heater makes some funny noises sometimes so a fan could help with that too). Great house!
Wonderful comfy cottage by the bay!
We had a perfect week in Pacific Grove in Ron and Christy's charming cottage relaxing with our wonderful friends and visiting with Ron and Christy. The weather was perfect every day(weather karma!), the bay and the coastline were stunning, the cypress trees were beautiful, the meals were delicious (home made and dining out), and the golf was great! We love staying in this wonderful place.
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.
