Leave your cares at the door. The cottage offers tranquility that will restore your spirits. We offer coffee, tea, water, and a complimentary bottle of wine to help you settle in as well as paper products and all linens and kitchen equipment.

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).

Charming cottage in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this sweet and beautiful cottage! The location is amazing, just steps away from Lovers Point and stroll along the pedestrian/bike path. Watched sunrise over the bay. The cottage is perfectly clean, bed very comfortable, kitchen well equipped (thank you for the wine, coffee/tea, creamer, seasonings, passes to the aquarium (we didn't use them on this trip but may in the future, etc.), decor tastefully done and just so very cozy. Quiet neighborhood. Very close to downtown Pacific Grove, walking distance to shops and wonderful restaurants. (PassionFish and Fandango to mention a few.) A short drive to Carmel and the beautiful Point Lobos Reserve. Not far from Big Sur and the breathtaking drive down the coast. Otters, seals, condors. And thank you, Jill for your quick responses and for making this cottage available to us. A precious gem, just hated to leave. But know that when we return to this area, that this will be the place we will come back to time and again.

Everything We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 nights in this lovely cottage. It's well situated for walking to downtown PG with its shops and restaurants or to the coastal trail and Lover's Point. It was a rainy weekend but we still enjoyed our visit. The bed is on the firm side but not rock hard, something to keep in mind if you prefer a softer mattress. The kitchen is well equipped and the neighborhood is very quiet. We always love visiting PG and would definitely stay here again.

Pacific Grove Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little house, a living room, bedroom and kitchen. The house had everything you need. The location was so convenient, we walked to the beach (which we could see from the front of the house)and restaurants. I would recommend staying at Seafoam cottage, the owner Jill was very responsive to all my questions.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. One of our guests' favorite spots is in the sunroom where you can sit at the counter and see the water at the Lovers Point cove. Please return to our coast soon.

Wonderful cottage in a great location. Walked to dinner every night, less than a block from the beach, and very close to golf courses. Unbelievably clean, wonderful decor, quaint and classy, not cluttered. Cannot wait to go back.
