1 Bedroom; 1 bath, sleeps 2 Owner Managed
I am a native of California and love the central and southern coasts. We enjoy sharing our cottage and lovely coastal town with our guests.
Jill purchased this Cottage in 1985
Why Jill chose Pacific Grove
I vacationed in Pacific Grove as a young girl with my family. My husband learned Russian at the Defense Language Institute when he was stationed in Monterey while in the service. We loved the area and it kept calling to us.
What makes this Cottage unique
The closeness of the water's edge and the friendliness of the residents make this an exceptional place to vacation and relax.

Just what I needed
What a terrific place! This cottage is exactly as advertised. Communication and check in was simple. Upon my arrival, there was ample parking right in front of the unit. The unit was VERY clean, comfortable, and has plenty of space for 2 people. The kitchen is well stocked and a small grocery store is within walking distance of one wanted to prepare meals. The locations is awesome...steps to the ocean in a quiet neighborhood yet just short walk to the downtown section of Pacific Grove. I would stay here again and highly recommend this unit to others.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your walk to the beach and to The Grove Market. Thank you for your review and for taking wonderful care of our cottage. Do come again!
Cozy, comfortable, AWESOME location!
The house was perfect for my husband and me when we stayed there the week of Christmas.
The house was charming, clean, and had absolutely everything we needed. The living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were all plenty spacious for the two of us. The additional sunny room in the very front where we kept our shoes and packages was a welcome bonus.
The location is outstanding! Very close to the ocean, shopping in downtown Pacific Grove and a never ending variety of great restaurants. (The Red House was our favorite.)
We loved our stay. We will be back.
Thank you for writing to us about your stay! We love the sun room, too and The Red House above Mrs. Trawick's. Having a great restaurant like this a few blocks away is so convenient. Please come again!
Quaint Cottage in Ideal Location
The cottage was perfect for us...clean, charming and in the perfect location close to the beach, shops and dining. We definitely would return. Easy and quick communication with the owner.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Please do come again!
Most enjoyable stay
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for writing and we hope to see you again here in Paradise.
A Wonderful Stay
Jill's place is adorable and in the best location. Close to the water and a couple short blocks to shopping and dining. We loved Pavel's Bakerei, went there every morning to grab a quick breakfast. My husband and I walked to the Aquarium and Cannery Row taking the coastal path, which was wonderful. The house had everything we needed.
Pavel's is one of our favorite bakeries, too! Thank you for your review and please come to visit again!
Close to the beach, Jill is great!
Jill is very responsive and replies within 24 hours.
House is clean and close to a lot of locations like Lovers Point and the aquarium.
The street itself to turn into is not as obvious but I think that's the design of Monterey city as a whole. Quaint house and town, overall a great place to visit. Definitely a summer town so go during the summer, we went during the winter and aquarium was practically the only good thing to visit. Although if you want to avoid crowds, definitely go during the winter.
Also check out the heated bench at Studio Cafe. It's an outdoor water heated outdoor stone bench they have.
Hello. Thank you so much for your reply, especially loved the recommendation for the heated bench!
Beach towns are definitely quieter in the winter and we hope you will return in the summertime.
We love bundling up and watching the interesting light off the waves, reading, drinking mugs of hot chocolate and the unhurried strolls through Pacific Grove and Carmel. But this isn't for everyone and I hope you enjoyed your little dose of calm there. Please come again!
