About cheryl levante

We have owned 'The Little Cottage' since 1996, and work very hard to preserve its historic charm! We have grown a clientele of mostly repeat guests, and referrals, but welcome newcomers too!

cheryl levante purchased this cottage in 1996

Why cheryl levante chose Central Coast

Very quaint town, close to beaches, shops, restaurants and historic sites all around! Very nice area of small towns to enjoy in a short 3-7 day trip!

What makes this cottage unique

We rarely ever cook at the cottage, or even make coffee! There are too many great places to eat within steps of our house, including our favorite restaurants in the world (Passion Fish, Toasties, Red House Cafe, and Peppers, all within 1 block from our house.)

Family holiday stay in Pacific Grove

  • 1 of 5

Great location for walking downtown. Very noisy due to proximity to post office and restaurant. Needs repair and updating for price. We would not return despite our love for Pacific Grove

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

Best thing about this cottage is the location. The pictures on VRBO are very decieving since the cottage does not look like that now, inside or outside. The cottage is cute and cozy, just needs some tlc and more attention given to the cleaning.

Perfect location - everything you need for a great weekend

  • 4 of 5

Can't beat the location -right in the heart of Pacific Grove. Walkable to Lover's Point and right off Lighthouse. Cute little vintage cottage that is big enough for extended family with everyone getting enough private space. Beds are so comfortable and it is quiet in spite of being next door to a restaurant. Kitchen is well stocked with plates, pans, etc. Even have a laundry on site although we didn't use it. WiFi included and very good. It's like having your own vacation home. Although there was a hiccup at the beginning (key wasn't in the lockbox), it was resolved within an hour. I can't wait to come again and would recommend it to anyone who loves old Pacific Grove.

Our summer retreat

  • 4 of 5

The location of the cottage can't be beat. You're right next door to a wonderful restaurant, steps away from quaint shops, a lovely downtown, and only a short walk to the ocean where you'll see sea lions, and sea otters. It's a beautiful drive to Carmel, Point Lobos, and surrounding areas. There is, of course, the aquarium and golf courses nearby. We kayaked in an estuary among so much marine life and also saw hawks, and herons., The town has an interesting history where all the cottages are dated and marked with the original owners names. The yellow cottage has plenty of space, laundry facilities, and is dated but that is part of its charm. We felt like we were part of the early group of people who came to Pacific Grove for a summer retreat.

Cute and quaint cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as described in the reviews. I inquired if there was a rice cooker available and Cheryl immediately responded back that there was not but one would be there before I arrived. We were able to cook meals and utilize the crockpot that was there. I was able to walk to shops, park, and the beach- even with my current knee problems. We enjoyed the cafe right around the corner on our last morning- quite tasty. I would definitely rent this cottage again next trip up there.

Perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Overall loved this cute little house. It was perfect for what we needed. We had 7 in our group, 2 adults in one room, 3 siblings in another (our 2 teen boys shared a queen bed and 9 yr daughter on a small pull out sofa in same room), then adult and her young daughter shared third room/bed. We were of course gone most of the time out "playing" but the house had books to read, games to play, a play station, etc. We didn't have time to play them but it was nice. The pictures online need updating (unless they have been) but the tv is flat screen (3 tvs total in house), and furniture and bedding is updated. Beds seem older and creaked but we slept great: nice and comfy. It is an older home so don't expect perfection. Bathrooms are a little odd by being inside each bedroom so our kids would cross through to go. In pictures I couldn't figure out where washer and dryer would be, but they are in the bedroom off of the kitchen in a closet, full size and worked great. Kitchen picture makes you wonder where table and fridge are but they are there and plenty of room. Microwave was kind of crappy. Stove is small (couldn't buy a large pizza to bake in there) but worked for needs. Parking is side street and with shops around we were worried about losing our spot, but with two cars we never did. Short walk to ocean view walking/biking path. We walked to aquarium just fine. We never saw where we could walk right down on the beach to play though. Overall great middle location for playing in Monterey, Morro Bay, Santa Cruz, and even San Francisco. The only complaint we would have is the lack of personal welcoming from owners. We never heard from owners until we showed up at the door needing to get in, and we had to call them. Still a great place! Great trip!
