This was our basecamp for a fun girls weekend! We loved being walking distance to a beautiful beach, cute shops and great restaurants. The condo is well equipped and comfortable. Can't wait to go back!
Thank you for coming! Come again.
We absolutely loved our stay here. The location was perfect with beach being only a 5 min walk. House was a little musty on arrival but after opening windows it was fine. Towels were a little old and funky but other than that we loved it.
Great Location! But the apartment could use some TLC
My girlfriend and I visited the apartment this past weekend for our 1-year anniversary and had a lovely time. If I could give this apartment 3.5 stars then I would, but here are my thoughts on the apartment:
1. Location, Location, Location! - smack dab on the main road in Downtown Pacific Grove. You can walk to cafes and restaurants, walk to the ocean, and uber just about everywhere else in the Monterey area, including the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Very convenient. Parking was fairly easy as well.
2. Price - The Monterey area in general is SUPER expensive. This apartment, for what it is, is overpriced. However, when you compare it to other 2-bedrooms in the area (and I did a TON of research on this before booking), and with it's proximity to the ocean, it's in the top 15% of most inexpensive 2-bedrooms in the area. So I can't fault the owners for pricing according to the market they're in.
1. Not Fresh? - When you book a rental, there is an expectation of a "crispness/freshness" that you desire so you don't think about all of the people before you who have rented the place. You want a clean smell and everything to FEEL clean. It was not the case with this apartment. My girlfriend and I continuously had stuffy noses and allergy issues within the apartment. As soon as we stepped outside and breathed in the ocean air, the stuffiness went away, so it was definitely something in the home. Previous pets maybe? It just didn't have that crispness to it. The instructions for checking-out require that you take out the trash and load & run the dishwasher which also led me to believe that this apartment is rarely if ever professionally cleaned.
2. Needs Updating/More TLC - There were many small details lacking that with a little more TLC could have easily boosted this to a 4-star review. There were no garbage bags in the apartment. The towels were very old, mismatched, and falling apart. The handsoap was empty and we had to refill it ourselves. There was hair on the bathroom floor. The sheets of the bed were so old that they were pilling. Leftover ice cream in the freezer. No Keurig coffee machine (but there was an old coffee-pot machine).
So all-in-all we would say it was a positive stay but we will probably stay elsewhere next time. NOTE: Also it is attached to the movie theater and you can hear the sounds coming into the home. It didn't bother us, but if you're sensitive to sound it's something to consider.
Hello I’m responding to your review. If you smelt a pet smell my professional cleaner that has been cleaning for me for over five years they also smelled a pet smell, I asked the previous guest about it because I do not allow pets. They were very upset with me they said they did not have a a pet. You could have opened the windows. My son and my mother and also myself when in Pacific Grove get a little stuffed up and we stay in my other unit. It is a respiratory condition that we have in PACIFIC GROVE. I always have my place professionally cleaned I asked the people to dump the garbage because some people cook fish or crab and that smells so that is why I asked them to dump the garbage. My cleaner just bought garbage bags and hand soap and they were in the bathroom in the big white cabinet. Yes there was ice cream in the freezer for anybody else that may want to enjoy it. I think you would be better off staying in a hotel and not a personal home. Yes I do not have a Keith coffee maker I have a Mr. coffee maker that’s two years old. That is not a requirement to have a Keurig coffee maker. My place is priced at $100 less than any other two bedroom including my other two bedroom on Oceanview because there is a little bit of noise from the theater but doesn’t seem to bother anyone. Thank you Sally
Great location. Very nice apartment. Shares walls with movie theatre and dolby digital sound.
We loved our stay in Pacific Grove. Beautiful area and very nice accommodations. Nice layout though kitchen IS upstairs. Unit shares walls with movie theatre and we got a kick out of "hulk &thor" as part of our stay. They didn't stay late and were afternoon arrivals, so it wasn't a negative for us. Bus stop outside windows with hourly departures, fyi.
Unit is in a great neighborhood with shops, restaurants and beautiful beach area.
Property manager and staff were very responsive and easy to work with. We'd definitely stay here again.
We found this very conveniently located allowing our family to explore fantastic Monterey. Close to good eats and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
centrally located, spacious, comfortable.
The apartment was easy to find, had ample off-street parking a wonderful view of the water, downtown and the butterfly parade. There was plenty of room to relax in and the furnishings were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you Carhy😎 I’ve only seen that parade once. It’s really cute with all the children involved. Come again.
