About Michael

The home has been in the same family for decades and has recently been remodeled. The owner lives nearby and is available for consultations and tips about local attractions and restaurants. license # 0095

Michael purchased this house in 1949

Why Michael chose Pacific Grove

This beautiful home has been passed down through the generations and lovingly cared for. It is in a quiet location, but close to everything. You will feel right at home as everything you need for an enjoyable stay has been provided for you.

What makes this house unique

I love the sweeping distant views of the ocean. This is such a quiet neighborhood, yet you can walk less than a block to the best coffee in town and you are centrally located for all the main attractions in the area. We love the fireplace, art work, comfy beds and the special homey touches. A perfect get-away.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

A welcoming home away from home, with everything you could want for a comfortable stay, especially during Pebble Beach Car Week. We had a fantastic time and Michael the owner could not have been more helpful, yet unobtrusive. As a Brit it was lovely to chat with someone with local knowledge. This added to the enjoyment of staying in this lovely home.

Owner's Response: Stephen and Dawn, What an enjoyable and well mannered couple. Sharing local knowledge and setting up dinner reservations during the ( super busy ) concourse d ' elegance week was my pleasure and gift. It was nice to host travelers from across the pond. Much to share. Thank you for the sterling review. M

New to Monterey

  • 5 of 5

This is a warm and welcoming property just minutes away from the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and local attractions. The owner gave great recommendations for local coffee and pastries, where to capture the best views of the sunset, and a detailed list of sites to see along our Big Sur adventure! It was a day filled with breathtaking views, hiking, and delicious food. Thank you to the owner for sharing some great hidden gems!

One item that I think should be included on the listing for future guests to know is that the owner lives on-site.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kady for the kind review. Local knowledge is a shared experience. Occasionally the owner visits the property and is available to share this knowledge with guests unfamiliar with the Monterey Peninsula and surrounding area. It approximates a flexible visiting concierge service. It was an honor to enhance your touring visit and accommodations.

Awesome!

Owner's Response: Great guests, I enjoyed visiting with the guests and sharing local color. . Fifi's is a short drive to the top of the hill , a great french Bistro and Pavel's bakery lines go up the block toward the hardware store; well worth the wait, even early in the morning. A boutique grocery market across the street has fresh squeezed orange juice. The travelers felt they were back in a quaint village in Europe....Always welcome.

Owner's Response: Bill was a well mannered guest and I was honored to assist him in booking a tee time at the very expensive and exclusive 5 star Pebble Beach Resort Golf Course . A high priority on his " BUCKET LIST ". He played other local courses and thoroughly enjoyed his time ( day and night ) here on the Monterey Peninsula. As a certified forester Bill offered healing advice on my struggling Japanese Maple tree growing in the rear yard " Sanctuary Garden "...... In the future, I will once again extend to Bill, the privilege of booking and staying in my home.

Stay at Pacific Grove Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was incredibly well equipped (including the kitchen) and taken care of and the courtyard was a pleasant retreat. It is convenient located near shopping, quality restaurants, and Monterey attractions. The owner is very welcoming and accommodating. We had a great time and appreciated the quiet neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Louis and Deborah, Thank you for the succinct and lavish review. As you both have engineering backgrounds and employment I was flattered by your notice of my attention to detail for comfortable living. Reservations at fine local restaurants, as per your request, is a duty and service I enjoy. Sharing local ( unnoticed and hidden ) hiking trails for your exploration and amazement was a special treat for me. Thank you again for your fine and thoughtful patronage.
