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

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 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.

Outstanding oceanview property and owners!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay during Pebble Beach car week. Beautiful accommodations - close enough to everything and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the events! You will love Ron and Christy (owners), which is part of the reason to rent from any property. They could not have been more attentive to our needs or ensuring a wonderful experience. Thank you, both!

Great location, well appointed, perfect rental. Location was very central to all the local activities and restaurants. Nice peekaboo view from the living room. We were greeted by a family of deer on our arrival. Beds were comfortable, kitchen had all the appliances and necessities. Would absolutely stay here again - great home!! Many thanks for opening it up to our family, great memories made here.

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

WOWWW! I have stayed in many vacation rentals - I think this one wins the award for EXCEEDING it's pictures! This is an adorable cottage with AMAZING views. . Meticulously kept, comfy beds and all amenities you would want. We loved our stay and would definitely come back. We loved our walks along the water with all the seals out 'sunning' on the rocks. Ron was a great host.

Fantastic home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a terrific stay at this beautiful home in Pacific Grove. Clean. Spacious. And the best part is you are literally steps away from Monterrey Bay. We saw lots of sea otters, seals and even whales breaching in the Bay! You can easily walk to restaurants like Peppers with great Mexican food. Ron and Christy are great hosts and very responsive. Definitely recommended.

Perfect beach cottage for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible location allowed us to take walks along the beach, head to Monterey and get down to Carmel. The house is clean and well equipped. We will be back!

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.
