Come and stay in our bright and adorable historic Redwood cottage. Renovated through out complete with wooden floors and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Lots of light from 2 skylights, white walls, and lace curtains make for a romantic country cottage feel. 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.

Enjoy all of the comforts of home including quality bed and bath linens and everything you need to cook a homemade meal.

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.

About Rory Merry

I have loved traveling the world and taking photographs. I hope you choose to come to our beautiful town of Pacific Grove with it's breath taking scenery and world class attractions only a few minutes away!

Rory Merry purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Rory Merry chose Central Coast

Our cottage is on a very quiet side lane with lots of trees, hanging moss and fresh air. Be close to all the major sites of Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur while also enjoying peace and privacy of your own little cottage.

Excellent property in location ideal for exploring Monterey peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Property as described, spotlessly clean and well equipped. WiFi excellent. Super location for exploring the area including Monterey Acquarium (2 passes available for our use), Pacific Grove, Laguna Seca, PCH and Big Sur. Not too far to Moss Landing where sea otters can be seen.

Clean, cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Two free aquarium tickets were a bonus. Kitchen was spotless with a nice array of cookware. Bed was comfortable but the 2 living room love seats were not very comfortable for TV viewing.

Cosy, charming cottage, great quiet location in fab Pacific Grove.

  • 4 of 5

We really loved our 5-day stay at Rory's charming and cosy cottage. It is on a great back street, a short walk to restaurants and a very good yoga studio. It has a lot of character. Although it is on the small side, we found it just the right size for the 2 of us. There is a lot of original character that has been preserved. Some mentioned the softness of the bed, and for me, the bed was certainly on the soft side, but this is a new, quality mattress, not something old and worn. It was useful to have a washing machine and dryer, I loved the Le Creuset cookware in the kitchen and the great oven and stove. No dishwasher but that was no big deal. Also great EO soaps and shampoos in the bathroom, and a very nice set of speakers that you could plug your ipod or computer into, very good sound! The cottage is not 'luxury' but does not need to be. We loved it and look forward to coming back when we are fortunate enough to be able to. Rory was good at answering queries and initiated the deposit refund the same day we checked out. All in all, an excellent stay at a decent price.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this adorable and comfortable cottage! My hubby was impressed with the wifi speed (65u/6d Mbps) and we both loved the butterflies on the ceiling above the bed. The many homey touches were lovely and welcoming. Thank you for happy memories, we will certainly return!

Wonderful stay at quiet, butterfly-themed cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our choice of accommodation....Rory's immaculate cottage in Pacific Grove. It is a beautifully decorated butterfly-themed place, and quiet Pacific Grove is such a lovely contrast to the crowds which one can encounter as a tourist in the Monterrey/Carmel area. Rory's attention to detail in decorating the place is exceptional as he is very artistic and his place is gorgeous. Additionally, he provides the basic ingredients for making meals, such as oil, spices and teas ! We can't wait to return !
