Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Central Coast California - Modern Beach Retreat

2 bedrooms, 2 bath

WOW this peaceful retreat has everything you need for a relaxing weekend at the beach. 100% new all modern- Soaring Ceilings with skylights that invite the outside in- watch the tree overhead sway in the wind. Completely new with all the finishing touches. This house offers 3 gas fireplaces (including outside)! 3 Televisions and a state of the art sound system- just bring your i-pod plug and play!

You can’t beat the location - park your car and walk! Everything you could want or need is so close- enjoy the downtown restaurants and shops or Lover's Point beaches,the Pacific Grove Golf Course . It's one mile on beach trail to world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, historic Cannery Row, and International Outlet Center. Shopping in Carmel, golfing in Pebble Beach, hiking in Big Sur are an easy drive away. Catch a movie at and the Lighthouse Cinemas just 3 blocks away – or you can also just stay home and relax in the hot tub on the deck- read a book on the cozy roof deck.

WE DO NOT ADVERTISE ON CRAIGSLIST. BEWARE OF SCAMMERS

About Margaret

Grew up in the Bay Area and always loved the Monterey Peninsula

Margaret purchased this house in 2004

Why Margaret chose Central Coast California

Love the history of this house (built in 1908) and the location just could not have been better. We love spending time in PG and just parking the car for the weekend. So much to do and so relaxing at the same time.

What makes this house unique

Close to everything. Long history

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, absolutely loved this home. It was the perfect place for us and it had all the amenities and comforts of home you could ask for - proximity to the ocean and downtown, surround sound in every room, fireplaces, beautiful kitchen, hot tub... we can hardly wait to go back! Thank you very much for allowing us to share your lovely home.

Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

We rented the house based on the amenities and location. The location was great! Super close to Lover's Point (cute little beach) and a walking trail.

The house was cute on arrival and Frank was there to let us in and show us around. The place was smaller than we anticipated but worked great for us (2 couples). I will say for the amount of money it costs, there were quite a few issues. The tv upstairs was not working (very disappointing). There was no working sound system. There are speakers around the house but nothing to hook your ipod/iphone up to. Fortunately, we brought our own speakers so we could listen to music in the backyard. The bbq was pretty awful. My suggestion would be to get rid of it or get a new one. The back and side yard were not cleaned prior to our arrival. Someone did come once we arrived to sweep and clean up the front and side yard. We swept up the backyard so we could enjoy the outdoor fireplace (one of the best things about this house). We did not use the hot tub so not sure how well it's taken care of.

The kitchen was decent. Not fully stocked by any means but the basics were there (pots/pans, coffee maker, some spices-no oil for cooking). They did leave a basket with a bottle of wine and a few other things. Nice gesture.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were also decent (lots and lots of new towels).

Lover's Point Inn is a short walk. We tried the Sand Dabs....super yummy. We did the 17 mile drive and tried some wine tasting in Carmel (Caraccioli Cellars).

While our stay was good, if some of the issues were fixed, this house would be really great.

Perfect Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous property in a perfect location within easy walking distance of the beach, the aquarium and downtown Pacific Grove. It was spotlessly clean and beautiful. A perfect place for two couples or a family

Pacific Grove

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is very sweet and in a nice position for the beach and the shops. The owner was excellent regarding communications and help. The caretaker however was rather gruff as we had communication problems with no cell network. The cottage interior was nice and clean though the outside could have done with a good spring clean following the winter. No sign of the hot tub being maintained on the said day and the dishwasher was not great but apart from that we enjoyed our stay at the cottage.

Great little get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! For our little get-away, my husband and I parked the car on Monday and didn't get in it again until we left on Wednesday. Walked along the shore, walked to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on the path along the shore (beautiful!), walked to restaurants and shops. The house is modern, nicely appointed and well-equipped. Good bed, nice quality linens and towels. Loved hanging out in the loft when a storm blew through one afternoon. The house was clean and the manager met us there to show us how everything worked. Red House Cafe is great for breakfast. PassionFish excellent for dinner. We would definitely recommend to friends. Looking forward to returning! We didn't get a chance to hike Point Lobos.

Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and main entrance to 17 Mile Drive. Within the city are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allows you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.

Visit the Museum of Natural History, Point Pinos Lighthouse, tour Asilomar State Park, or enjoy the Sunset anywhere between Lovers Point Park and Asilomar Beach. Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town U.S.A. since every October the Monarchs migrate to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary where they winter until February. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is the top rated municipal golf in the state with over 70,000 rounds played annually. It is referred to as poor man's Pebble Beach due to its proximity and resemblance of Pebble Beach courses.

Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Pacific Grove. The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp where several hundreds assembled to worship amidst rough tents. Tour brochures are available at the Chamber. http://www.pacificgrove.org/
