Escape the city and sit out on the wooden deck and enjoy the relaxed vibe of Pacific Grove, Butterfly Town, U.S.A. Enjoy the use of 2 guest membership passes to the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium!

This beautifully remodeled cottage was built in 1910 with a plaque inscribed to Lucy Hart 1894. An energy efficient washer and dryer in the covered breezeway are available for use by Guests.

Located 6 blocks from Lighthouse Avenue and downtown Pacific Grove, .6 miles from 17 Mile Drive, 1.3 miles from Asilomar Beach and Conference Grounds, .8 miles from Lover’s Point, and 1.6 miles from The Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Pacific Grove is known as the 'last hometown' for its friendly assortment of small shops, specialty boutiques, and excellent restaurants. Take the walking trail through the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary or head to the walking path along the shoreline (that has a pictorial history of the town) to Cannery row, home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A golfer's paradise awaits with numerous courses to choose from including the famous Pebble Beach. A short drive along the famed 17-mile drive will take you to the town of Carmel with its many art galleries and superb restaurants or to the historic Carmel Mission. And, of course, there is the breathtaking scenic beauty of the region, including the many beaches, Point Lobos, and the coastal drive on Highway 1 down to Big Sur, still a haven for artists, bohemians and free thinkers from all walks of life.

It's a lovely property, well located and beautifully equiped and cared for.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It's a lovely place and well detailed. The only reason for my three stars is that with my problematic lumbar spine and being a tummy sleeper, I wasn't able to sleep on the mattress without spine pain. As others had commented on the soft mattress, I had the owner make up the futon in the living room. I'm disappointed as I was hoping to have this place as a retreat for myself when I come down to the area. Might a piece of plywood help a bit?

Owner's Response: I would like future guests to know that our bed is a very expensive Stearns and Foster mattress with individually wrapped coils and the latest cooling technology. We have gone to great lengths to try to make our guests comfortable. I am sincerely sorry to hear about this guest's discomfort, but clearly this guest has an ongoing back issue with her lumbar spine. Many of our other guests have found our high end bed cozy and comfortable, and as a host, I have done everything I can to create a a warm and welcoming home for our guests.

Cute house in charming neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

House is tucked back in a small side street and is very beautifully painted. We found the house to be suitable for our stay. Cute twin bed, small living room, and lovely HOT shower.

My only complaint with this VRBO is the cleaning fee of $100. Per the size of the unit and the condition, a $100 feels like a bit of a scam. Yes the units clean but for a 1-2 nights stay it's extreme. Otherwise.... it's very small and cozy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on my home. I want to be clear to future guests that 100% of the cleaning fee goes directly to my lovely local lady that lives around the corner from my property. The owner or vrbo do not economically benefit from this cleaning fee in any way. By doing business this way, we support our local economy. This guest is misinformed because there is definitely no scam involving our cleaning fees. In addition, cleaning fees and the size of my cottage are disclosed prior to the time of booking, so I am not sure how this guest interprets this as a scam. Our cottage is exactly as advertised, a charming and cozy historic cottage in character with the town of Pacific Grove.

Very pleasant

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent 2 nights in Pacific Grove before traveling back to Minneapolis. We were very impressed with the clean and well organized cottage that was ready for us. Thank you for the use of the Aquarium members passes. Great idea.
