About the property

One bedbedroom one bath wi/ jetted tub and separate shower. Steps to beach/town

Welcome home to this little PG gem.

City of Pacific Grove Transient Use License #0345.

With touches of rustic Big Sur in downtown Pacific Grove. Now you can truly experience life of a true Pagrovian,.... On a quiet downtown residential street you will discover this fine original cottage. Just recently remodeled and lovingly updated with all the relevant comforts and amenities one would expect. Located on one of the quaintest historic streets in downtown PG city area. Walking distance to all amenities Pacific Grove has to offer.

Open beams, River Rock, Saltillo tiles and original hardwood floors give an open feeling as well. The solid cabinetry ,doors and trim throughout the cottage make it feel secure and cozy.

Rejuvenate in comfortable luxury in your own spa like bathroom. Convenient separate stall shower and grand and comfortable jetted tub. Natural light abounds with skylites strategically placed and fully operable windows with private garden views .

Comfortable living area with floor to ceiling authentic and custom river rock fireplace, (with new super easy to use no hassle at the flip of a switch)

Organically maintained garden surrounds the cottage. Growing here in the privacy of its own garden and yard are fresh herbs and seasonal artisal vegetables are available for guests to use n salads and prepared homemade dishes in the well stocked and cozy kitchen.

Thoughtfully restored and decorated, this stunning homage to the original Caretakers cottage of the gracious mansion that stands adjacent to Sea laVie Cottage. Sea la Vie will certainly provide you with relaxing comfort amidst authentic predominantly locally gathered period furnishings.

An homage to the past and days gone by but still relevant. Settings although current still authenticity sensitive with flavorful reminiscence of John Steinbeck era, when an influential writer or local artist may have been apt to stop by to have an interesting chat in front of the River Rock fireplace tip one back or outside in one of the wicker chairs on the stone patio overlooking the beautiful gardens.

Sure you can stroll downtown to the last home town ...there is plenty to do ...but leave yourself plenty time to relax and stop and not only smell the sea from this heartwarming gem and hear the seals but relax in your perfectly cocooned location and take your time to smell the roses, jasmine, trumpet vine and citrus wafting through your own private patio and yard.

Please note we do not under any circumstances ever advertise this vacation rental property in Craigslist.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage very much! Nice and close to wonderful downtown Pacific Grove, and a nice (longer) walk to Monterey. Good communication with Alisa - any question we had was answered promptly. Thanks for the great visit!

Adorable, charming and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviews were correct in saying this little house is beautiful, very clean and very well-maintained. Our host was responsive and very pleasant, although we had little contact because everything was perfect. The location is great - just past the hussle on Lighthouse so no noise but still only a few blocks to everything - restaurants, shops and walks along the PG trail and to Lovers Beach. We have stayed in dozens of homes in the area and this is one of the best. It is very small but big on charm.

Charming and cozy cottage in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little cottage is conveniently located within walking distance to Main Street Pacific Grove and Lover’s Cove. It is well-appointed with anything you might want for a weekend getaway! There is a very comfortable bed, a small fenced yard, and a cozy interior with a gas fireplace. The best part was having our Doberman enjoy the trip with us! Thank you!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The location is perfect and it was wonderful being able to walk around Pacific Grove and to the beach. The place is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. The wine and cheese left by Alisa was an unexpected surprise. It was great being able to bring our dog as well. We can't wait to return sometime soon.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third booking at this rental and as always we were not disappointed; this property is perfect!

The exterior, understated with clean lines, evokes a time gone by; think of a writer's cottage. In fact, the fenced and manicured courtyard is a great place to relax and read a book.

But it is in the interior that this property really shines. It is decorated in a cottage chic style which, with its river rock fireplace, plaster walls, and open beams provides a wonderful romantic, cozy, and warm ambience. The photos on the website don't do it justice.

The bed is wonderfully comfortable.

This place is also spotlessly clean.

We ate out but the kitchen has all of the essentials.

This property does not have an ocean view but it is centrally located on the edge of downtown Pacific Grove and it is an easy walk to the ocean, Cannery Row, or the Wharf.

However, being in Pacific Grove the ambience is decidedly more upscale than Monterey.

Finally, in today's world it is rare to interact with anyone except in a perfunctory and business like way. Graciousness seems to have gone by the wayside. However, the hostess, Alisa, is an exception to that rule. She is responsive and genuinely interested in guests having an positive experience at her property. Alisa even took the time out to provide snacks and a bottle of wine. I can't say enough about her graciousness and the ease of booking the property. She may be the best property owner in all of VRBO land.

If you rent this property you will not be disappointed. We just love this place!

(The only caveat is that this property is small; it's a cottage and is best suited for one to two adults.)
