About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6, spacious living room, garden patio.

This is an old, Spanish-style house with a large, comfortable, living room in a very quiet location that is a short block and a half to the beach and Bike Trail. It's close to numerous tourist destinations with lots of parking available.

Everything is so close, you'll find you can take a vacation from driving, too. The house is just a short walk to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, supermarket, outlet stores, downtown Pacific Grove, restaurants, movie theater, the natural history museum, gift shops, coffee shops, etc. The two free aquarium passes included with the rental make this home a true bargain.

The house has a bay view, private, outdoor garden/patio area with BBQ, high-speed WiFi, satellite TV including movie channels, 2 big screen (50') TVs, spacious living room, laundry room and is located on a very quiet street and has off street parking (there's lots of on-street parking as well).

The huge living room with it's high ceilings is the best feature of the house. It's spacious and comfortable with high quality leather furniture. You couldn't ask for a better living room for family gatherings.

The house has three bedrooms: King bed, Queen bed, and the third bedroom has a trundle bed that can pull out into two twin beds. The bedrooms are small, but the beds and linens are exceptional quality and very comfortable.

The laundry room has a front loading washer and dryer. The bathroom has a large tub and overhead shower.

This house is comfortable and quiet - perfect for a family vacation where you have lots of activities within easy walking distance, but can come back home and relax in a peaceful setting, where you can recharge and unwind.

About Rebecca Campbell

We are retired Oregon tree farmers who split our time between Pacific Grove, CA and Silverton, Oregon.

Rebecca Campbell purchased this house in 2013

Why Rebecca Campbell chose Central Coast California

David grew up in Venice, CA, Rebecca in Spokane, WA. We both fell in love with Pacific Grove in the 1970s. We love that it hasn't lost it's historical charm, has a vibrant, local community and has retained it's small town feel. This isn't just a rental property - this is our home.

What makes this house unique

We love the old, historic homes along the ocean in Pacific Grove. Most are very small. The spacious 500 sq.ft. living room with high ceilings and giant windows, and the private, outdoor garden/patio made this house special. The close proximity to the ocean and tourist attractions made it perfect for a vacation rental, yet the quiet neighborhood lets us feel removed from the 'tourist scene'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

- great time flying big kites, riding bikes and walking the ocean-front path! PERFECT PERFECT we love Pacific Grove - Thanks for opening your home to us. We'll Be Back!!

incredible location, beautiful open space

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed Rebecca's place so much. Easy access to the bike trail, coffee shops, Cannery Row, and Pacific Grove. The space was bright and perfect for our family of six. The laundry facilities were an extra bonus.

Cute house centrally located in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons ages 1 and 6. It is only a block and a half to Ocean View Ave. and Monterey Bay. We loved being able to walk to the Aquarium and to Lovers Point and many local restaurants and stores. The house is nicely decorated and comfortably furnished. There is so much to do. We would love to stay here again.

All you could ask for in a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal for excursions to downtown Monterey and the quaint amenities of Pacific Grove. The property was a block and half from Ocean View Boulevard, which offers a wonderful walk or drive along the Pacific. Our hosts' two free passes helped support a wonderful trip to a huge and impressive aquarium facility. We also visited Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row, sampling chowder at various restaurants, along with some neat breakfast spots, all within easy distance, as well as the 17-mile drive around the peninsula and horseback riding near Pebble Beach. And always we had a warm and inviting home to return to, with three bedrooms, ample living-room space, two big TVs, a dining room and kitchen. The appointments of the home--all were thoughtfully planned for the active traveler, ready to lounge about at the end of a long and active day. Our time there was all too short, but this property was all we could have wished, with Rebecca as a most accommodating host for our pre-travel questions. Thanks for providing a comfortable dwelling for a great stay!

Nice clean home and a great roomy living room. The back patio was a nice place to sit and enjoy the beautiful sea breeze.

Easy to make reservations.

Car: recommended

Short walk to all attractions: Ocean/bike/walking trail, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Historic downtown, Monarch Sanctuary, Natural History Museum, Fisherman's Wharf. Numerous gulf courses, including America's #1 Public Golf Course, Pebble Beach. 17 mile drive. Historic walking tours. Lots to discover for Steinbeck affectionados (recommend a drive to Salinas for production of The Grapes of Wrath).

We can't rave enough about the Monterey Bay Aquarium - a must see, and it's a short walk from our house. Leave the car behind, head to the beach and walk North. You'll see the sea lions basking on the beach along the way. If you haven't been to Big Sur, plan a day trip, and take the 17 mile drive along the way. There's SO much to do, SO much to see, you could stay a month and not see everything. The tourist information center is just a few blocks away. Whale watching is year around, the Monarch sanctuary is a winter visit. One of the best features of our home is it's location. You can take a vacation from your car, too. Park and walk. It's all close by.
