About Jill

I am a native of California and love the central and southern coasts. I love sharing our cottage with our wonderful guests.

Jill purchased this cottage in 1985

Why Jill chose Pacific Grove

I vacationed in Pacific Grove as a girl with my family. My husband learned Russian at the DLI. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sea foam Cottage is an oasis of light and air and a love of detail. The 4 of us loved it and could not possibly had a better visit. We adored the cottage, the way it looked and smelled and offered a home away from home. Your artistic flare is evident everywhere, Jill. We all home that you let us visit again next year in Sea Foam and Snug Harbor (106 1/2).

I find myself in a quandary on how to write this review. I certainly want to give the property the credit deserved. However, I am even more certain that I would like to return for a future stay. I would hate jeopardize my chances of reserving a date by making too many people interested in renting.

That being said, I can honestly say that the location, charm, and tranquility of the sea foam cottage lived up to everything we had hoped and expected. Jill thought of every need and comfort we could possibly want. She graciously,quickly, and patiently answered all of my questions concerning the property. The craftsmanship of the cottage is amazing. (It would be great to see the original plans).

Many times, property of vacation sites are not as depicted ; but are disappointing, at best. This little cottage more than fulfilled my expectations. I felt very comfortable walking around the neighborhood, taking in the architecture of a forgotten time.

Second stay at Jill’s beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary at Jill’s place two years ago and were very pleased that it was available for our return visit to Pacific Grove. Jill’s place is cozy, clean and perfectly located for setting out on foot to enjoy all that PG has to offer. The bed is very comfortable, the living space is just right and the kitchen is well equipped. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit.

Warm Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just perfect for the two of us. The living room is nice in the evening with the candles in the fireplace, but we spend most of our time on the bright and airy front porch. We ate at the breakfast bar each morning and watched the squid boats out on the ocean, or had coffee after our morning walk. In the afternoon it was lovely to sit out there to read and have a drink. The bed is super comfy and welcoming after a day of walking or hiking. The bathroom is nice too, with lots of towels and a nice tub to soak in and the scented candles are an added touch. Our favourite part was the kitchen, it’s very well equipped and we enjoyed cooking with the stove. We ended having more meals at home than we planned because between the farmers markets in PG and Monterey and The Grove market within walking distance, there’s just so much local stuff available that you don’t want to pass it up. We look forward to coming back to Sea Foam cottage for another relaxing holiday. Thanks again Jill for sharing your lovely beach house with us.

So close to the bay and the ocean, well equipped, comfortable for the two of us

  • 5 of 5

Hard to say what we liked most about this place. The location was perfect for us. We could step out the door and cross a street to be at the recreation trail for a run or a walk. The bed was comfortable, as were the rooms. Not overly large, but great for a couple. This was part of our 38th anniversary trip. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Aquarium passes and the binoculars were great added benefits! We loved watching the seals with their babies and the sea otters as they ate or swam in the area. Nice quiet street.

Best Week Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this adorable cottage from May 8-15, 2018 and by far, this was the one of the most amazing places we have stayed. The Sea Foam Cottage was so comfortable and decorated to make it feel like a coastal beach house. We had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived and we had access to the Aquarium Passes which was fantastic. The size of the cottage, amenities and proximity to everything was perfect. We were steps from Lovers Point, restaurants, grocery stores and beautiful walking paths. We played golf at the Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course that was close by and walked the miles of walking paths along the coast. We also made a short trip into Big Sur and Carmel for some of the most amazing hiking we have done. We just went off the beaten path most of the time so we couldn't exactly tell you where we went, but if you have time, just look to the side of the road and see if there is a small path (even if it looks like no one has been there in awhile. Go there and skip the tourist spots! Guaranteed, you will find the most beautiful untouched areas and wildlife (seals, otters, crabs etc).

We were so close to just about anything we wanted to do.

Thank you Jill for the most memorable stay. We will for sure be making this a yearly vacation.

Clean, Cozy Cottage in an Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time on this visit. We did not want to leave Pacific Grove or this cottage! The home was very clean, comfortable, and equipped with all that we needed for our stay. It is an adorable bungalow/cottage built in the late 1800's, less than a block to the bay. Cozy, but plenty of space for the two of us. You can even have a peek at the bay from the breakfast nook!

The owner has done a great job of keeping the feel of a historic cottage, but with the modern comforts that we all love (clean house, bright bathroom with great water pressure, cozy bed, updated appliances, comfy couches, fast internet, washer/dryer). We ate most of our meals in the spacious eat-in kitchen, and it was easy with the provided kitchen equipment. Could have used a cutting board and an extra baking sheet. We were in town for the Big Sur Marathon, so it was really nice that we could wash our stinky clothes before moving on to our next destination!

The neighborhood is quiet and close to the Monterey Bay Aquarium (1 mile) and Asilomar State Beach Park (2 mile), and steps away from Lovers Point and the gorgeous trails along the bay. This town and location are so connected to easy walking and running opportunities. We walked daily to the coastal trail where we saw seals and their pups, otters, dolphins, and beautiful wildflowers. We walked to the Aquarium which saved the hassle of parking, and the rental home even had 2 annual passes for the guests to use! We went twice, saving $200 ($50 per adult per day)! This was such a special treat that we didn't expect.

Pacific Grove is a lovely town to spend a quiet day walking the coastal trail, relaxing on the beach, or exploring the historic cottages and beach front properties. Just up the street (walking distance) are a few restaurants, shops, and a natural foods store. Within 5 minutes drive are larger groceries, more restaurants, and even more activities-like downtown Monterey! It is a very convenient location if you have interest in Pebble Beach and the 17-Mile-Drive (worth it!), Artistic and Upscale Carmel by the Sea (art galleries, restaurants), and the amazing Hwy 1 drive to Big Sur (don't miss it!) We even drove up to Santa Cruz for lunch and shopping (1 hr away).

This was the perfect "home base" for our many adventures in the region, and we recommend it highly to anyone looking for a clean, quiet, and relaxing rental in a quaint coastal town!
