Why Kristina McGinnis chose Central Coast

Location of this property, very close to 17 mile drive, spanish bay & Asilomar. House has a great layout for a vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Live inside Pebble Beach inside the Forest next to the Ocean. You can hear the surf from the house and see the deer wandering the neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It is a lovely home, beautifully decorated but also warm and inviting. The attached cottage was perfect for our daughter, her husband and 14-month old baby. It allowed them some privacy but also gave the rest of our family some quiet space away from an energetic toddler. The location is perfect-five minute walk to Spanish Bay Beach and a ten minute drive to Monterey Wharf and Monterey Bay Aquarium. It is spacious, airy, well furnished and well located. We really enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We greatly appreciate you letting us know about the mattresses. We recently replaced the mattress in the master bedroom with a high quality mattress. We also replaced the queen mattress in the "family bedroom" with a new comfy queen mattress. The one bedroom cottage now has a king bed. We take feedback very seriously and we are always looking to exceed our guests' exceptions. Thank you and we forward to having you at the property again, Kristina McGinnis, Property Manager

Lovely home, even lovelier hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Kristina accommodated an early check-in for our group (requested well in advance), stocked the fridge with snacks and beverages, and had the home meticulously cleaned and prepped for our arrival.

The location is great - a stone's throw from Spanish Bay and right off the beautiful 17-Mile Drive - and the home has a spacious backyard and a large front drive. We had 8 guests and 5 cars and still felt like we had enough room!

I would absolutely stay here again!

Nice property in great location but with some minor issues

  • 3 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained with very well equipped kitchen. Great location within short walk of beaches and a few minutes drive to Monterrey and Pacific Grove. We encountered some annoyances that would likely be easy to take care of if this property is let out more often. Beds were very soft and linen and towels not of the highest quality. Although there were two fireplaces, only one of them worked and unfortunately this was in the den (or cottage area) where there was no wifi signal. At the start of our stay, we could either have wifi or the second tv - but not both and this was not remedied until the cable guy came on our second to last day. There is a Netflix account for the house, but it is child locked and so much of the content was blocked.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay but would likely not choose this property again.

Wonderful House, Wonderful Stay, We Will Return

  • 5 of 5

The house's location is fantastic, ½ mile from the beach, close to Pacific Grove, Monterrey, Carmel, 17-mile drive and convenient super markets. The common areas are great, two family rooms for us - one for the kids one for the adults, a great kitchen and wonderful patio where the sun warmed us each afternoon. The sun hits the house from different angles all day. Kristina, the manager, is warm and friendly. She repaired the few small issues we found immediately. The bedrooms and bathrooms are adequate. Our family all agreed that when we return to this area we would like to stay at this house again.

We loved the ocean side walks and runs and the aquarium. Point Lobos State Reserve, just 25 minute drive from the house, is incredibly beautiful.

Thank you Kristina

Multi-Family Stay

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house for 5 days for both sets of parents and siblings of the bride and groom who got married in Big Sur. Great location for commuting back and forth to the wedding venue. Very quiet gated neighborhood and close to groceries and other activities. Enjoyed taking the bicycles that were available down to the beach on 17 mile drive. Beach is also within walking distance. House has ample room for multi-generations. Back "cottage" area was perfect arrangement for the brides' family to feel like they had their own space. Lots of toys available for kids and toddlers. Nice barbeque area in the back yard.

Only a few minor issues. Some areas of the house were not as clean as I would have expected. No overhead lighting in the bedrooms and night stand lamps were undersized. Beds had very little support, way too soft. (But maybe some people like that.) Ants in the master bath and on the kitchen counters.

Overall, this is a nice rental. Very enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at The Pebble Beach Cottage and your feedback is greatly appreciated. We have professional house cleaners that clean the house for us after each group departs and they have been trained to clean the house just like a 5 star hotel. I wish you would have contacted me during your stay to make me aware of the issue, I would have sent back my house cleaners to clean the house again. The ants have been an issue throughout in the Monterey Bay; I have been able to control them with an organic pest spray that I spray on the exterior of the entire house. All the bedrooms have two lamps in each room; I will now purchase brighter bulbs for each lamp-thank you. I apologize for the inconvenience and congratulations to the bride and groom. Please come back and visit soon!
