About Margaret Hudson

Born and raised in Pacific Grove I left 25 years ago but always returned to visit family. We have traveled and lived all over the world but something about the magical Monterey Peninsula always called us home. We love coming to this home for family dinners, golf on the fantastic courses, bike rides and walks along the bike trail. It really is the last home town.

Margaret Hudson purchased this house in 2012

Why Margaret Hudson chose Pacific Grove

The proximity of all the beautiful area has to offer is walking distance or a short drive. We wander through town for a pastry and coffee. Early morning at the tide pools, (right down the street) or just sitting quietly watching for the Monarch Butterflies to visit.

What makes this house unique

The front parlor has a cozy sitting area with a gas fireplace, the great room has a large dining table and large HD TV and seating area. There is a kids corner with child size table, games, crafts books and a chalk board. The kitchen has a wonderful dining area, all high end appliances, maple cabinets and every thing a cook might need for a dinner party There are wonderful views of the bay from the 2nd floor....

Perfectly family-friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Margaret's house was totally ideal for our weekend: two families with four little boys. There was enough space for all of us, wonderful kitchen and living room for socializing and playing. The boys especially appreciated the nook with toys and games. Margaret and the property manager, Regina, were both responsive and helpful with anything we needed. House was near loads of restaurants and parks, easy access to beach and Aquarium. Would absolutely stay here again!

Lovely home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished, well equipped home. We had 6 adults and 3 children ages 15 mos, 3 years and 7 years. The play area with toys was wonderful for the kids. Very spacious, with good dining area and great kitchen, and relaxing area for all. Great location, short walk to restaurants, shopping, aquarium ( thank you for the 2 comp Aquarium passes !), Cannery Row, beach and trail along coast. Little more difficult for very young children and older adults as stairs numerous and fairly steep. Also, more difficult for bathing as all the tubs are free standing, footed tubs, making it a bit more difficult getting in and out and no walls in case of loss of balance.

Delightful place to spend the holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Pacific Grove was perfect. Being from the Northeast the weather certainly was a factor (temps in the 50-60s). However, most of the joy came from the house we stayed in. The set up was perfect for our families (2 couples, 1 friend and 2 adult siblings). The beds were extremely comfortable providing us with excellent slumber. The 2 gathering spots - front parlor with fireplace and family room with TV provided room for us to spread out. When sports was on TV others could be quietly reading in their rooms or in front of the fire.

The kitchen allowed for us to make many memorable meals which were enjoyed not only by those staying in the house but our friends staying nearby who joined for Christmas dinner. The professional stove-top and oven was great to cook on; the space was roomy for the many sous chefs. We have plenty of space to have adults seated in the dining room and "kids" in the kitchen table.

Location to the beach and walking into town to enjoy restaurants and shopping was essential. We each took time to visit the Monterey Aquarium and the host was kind to leave passes. Some of the group played golf at the local course. Others took a ride to Carmel for some Christmas shopping. Of course we did the 17 mile ride through Pebble Beach to oogle at the beautiful homes and landscapes.

I would highly recommend this house to others. When we needed one thing early on regarding the T; the homeowner jumped right in to call us immediately.

Thank you for allowing us to celebrate our holiday at this wonderful home

What a gem...perfect location in downtown Pacific Grove with access to Pavel's Bakery, Grove Market, and the various restaraunts. Lover's Point Beach is only blocks away with easy access to the recreation trail leading to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Loved It!

Beautiful house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our weekend trip. We love Monterey, but prefer to stay in Pacific Grove because it's quieter. This house was close to the main street with lots of restaurants and shops. It was also just a short walk to the path along the coast. We easily walked to the aquarium from here. The house itself is beautiful and worked really well for our group of 4 adults and 3 children. The kids loved the kids corner stocked with toys, books and even a large chalkboard. The adults loving the sitting room in the front of the house with cozy seating and a fireplace. All of the bedrooms were comfortable and the house contained every other amenity you would need from kitchen supplies to excellent wifi and cable. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!
