Fabulous home in Pacific Grove with beautiful ocean views, huge outdoor Jacuzzi, huge stone fireplace and back deck, gas grill, gourmet kitchen, grand piano, 70" flat screen TV, free aquarium tickets, near great restaurants and kept immaculate.

The space

You will love my home. It gets amazing reviews from guests. The house comes with two free Monterey Aquarium Passes. Plus the home was designed by the architect who designed the Monterey Bay Aquarium! A top rated home in Pacific Grove.

I will book for 1 night during weekday nights (Monday - Thursday). I require 2 nights for any weekend.

It inlcudes a high-end spa with waterfalls, powerful jets, and huge (seats 8) complete with a view of the ocean and gardens. You can hear your favorite music from the indoor/outdoor Bose sound system while sipping wine in the jacuzzi talking to your best friend, loved one, or family member. You will love it. The house now has a portable BeatBox Speaker By Dr. Dre. It is a portable, wireless, bluetooth speaker, top of the line, that works in conjunction with your IPOD, IPhone, Android Phone, or MP3 player. You can listen to your favorite music by the fireplace, by the jacuzzi, or the rooftop, ocean view deck, wherever the night takes you at my home. You will absolutely love it for all of you music lovers out there! I just added a 70" flat screen TV in the upstairs entertainment room with.

The beds and bedding are all high-end. I purchased a queen-sized sleigh bed made from the gorgeous red-jarrah wood. All mattresses are new. The four (4) beds all have at least 4 down pillows, luxury down comforters, cotton blankets, and high-end linens for the best night sleep of your life. Having traveled for business a lot, I know how important a great bed and a good night sleep is to guests. I excite and delight my guests any way that I can.

There are three bedrooms downstairs and one bedroom upstairs. Two of the bedrooms are conjoined, so guests must be aware of the close quarters of those two bedrooms. There are two new high-end leather sleeper sofas that reside in the upstairs entertainment room. The house sleeps up to 12 people in beds. The house also has two queen-sized sleigh beds that are also available to use for sleeping purposes.

There are two bathrooms in the house. There is one full bathroom with tub on the first floor in close proximity to the two downstairs bedrooms and the loft bedroom. The other bathroom is located in the large Entertainment Room above the garage with ocean views and access to the roof top ocean view deck. This bathroom has a shower, designer sink and toilet.

Weber Genesis 330 Gas grill to accompany the amazing outdoor stone fireplace and amazing French Oak Wine Barrel Adirondack Chairs. Perfect evenings outside with your favorite music piped throughout the house via Bose speaker system.

My home is amazing so email me and experience it. It books quickly so please let me know right away if interested. Cell phone or email are good ways to reach me. I will get back to you promptly.

Wake up to ocean views. Take relaxing walks by the beach. The house is walking distance to the beach (.8 of a mile), walking trails, a wonderful French Bakery, Trader Joe's, and other wonderful restaurants. My new favorite Julia's. The house was previously owned and remodeled by a Monterey Bay Aquarium reknowned architect.

Escape to a relaxing retreat furnished with cushy leather furniture, Tiffany lighting, warm wood furnishings, fine art, hardwood floors and open beams, outdoor large stone fireplace, all in a vibrant 4-bedroom, 2-bath, 2200 square foot, Pacific Grove home away from home with down comforters and pillows. The upstairs bedroom has a queen-sized sleigh bed. The downstairs bedroom with access to the back deck has a gorgeous queen-sized sleigh bed made of red jarrah wood from South Africa, and the other downstairs bedroom with access to the outdoor Jacuzzi has a beautiful art deco double bed. For larger groups I do have two (2) queen sized aero beds (top of the line and blow up in minutes) that fit comfortably in the ocean view entertainment room with home theater and roof top ocean view deck. I also have two high-end new leather queen sleeper sofas that will be in the upstairs entertainment room starting Feb 20, 2016. Additionally, I have a breakfast nook area with temperpedic type cushions that will sleep one additional adult or two children utilizing a blanket/quilt or sleeping bag. The house will now sleep up to 17 people. The ET room also has its own bathroom with heated floors. Numerous windows look out into the treetops and the Pacific Ocean. The intimate yard with fountains, native grasses, and ornamental plants enclose the patio with French Oak Wine Barrel Adirondack Chairs.

A roof top deck with teak furniture overlooks the ocean for a wonderful setting for afternoon cocktails/romantic dinner. Settle into the inviting living room with over 700 CDs and DVD movies or bring your own to use on the fabulous music system provided. There is an IPOD connection that allows you to enjoy your favorite music piped throughout the house indoors and outdoors. Enjoy a warm fire in the fireplace, play the beautiful grand piano located in the living room, or take a walk up the glass block-encircled staircase to entertain your guests in the spacious entertainment room that includes TV with DVD/VCR , Stereo , wireless internet access, and a view of the ocean!

The high-end, gourmet kitchen is equipped with more dinnerware, crystal glassware, cutlery (Wusthof knives), and copper cookware than you could possibly use, and features stainless steel appliances including microwave, brand new Maytag STEAM dishwasher, corian countertop, solid cherry wood cabinetry, full-sized refrigerator/freezer, and Viking range with gas oven (4 burners with large grill). The endless cookbook collection will inspire your inner chef!

The home is fully furnished and equipped with cookware, dinnerware, and kitchen linen. The home is beautifully lit with high end lighting in the kitchen, hallways, bathrooms, and over artwork. Beds have mattress pads, beautiful linens, down pillows and pillow cases, blankets and bed spreads or down comforters. There are several sets of bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths. There is a blow dryer available in the linen walk-in closet.

The back deck area includes a stunning natural stone wall with seating area and large stone fireplace and amazing outdoor lighting (7 different lighting sytems all on dimmers to create the perfect setting). The hand carved french doors that lead into the back deck were purchased from an old Pebble Beach mansion located next to the famous 'Lone Cypress Tree'. It is a great place to have an outdoor dinner party or cocktail party or just enjoy a beverage by the fire. There are 4 French Oak Wine Barrel Adirondack Chairs purchased in St. Helena (wine country). It's gorgeous.

There is a conveniently located enclosed patio for your pets to safely play. The house also has a sizeable doggy door for pet access. Just down the street is a wonderful dog walk called the 'Congress Avenue Dog Walk' where locals bring their dogs for afternoon walks. A true delight for dog lovers.

The house has several areas for groups (multiple families) to come together and also to have private time and private space. The upstairs entertainment room with beautiful ocean views is the best place for large groups to gather. The downstairs living room/dining room are a bit cozy for larger groups although the dining room table will expand to seat 10 guests.

Anytime is wonderful in Pacific Grove. April and May are some of my favorite months as the weather is clear and sunny. September and October are also warm and sunny as well. During the winter months November through March, you will enjoy great wave activity by the ocean and clear crisp weather for great beach walks along Pacific Grove/Monterey Bay. The best views of the ocean in my opinion are the winter months when it is clear and crisp and you can hear the sound of the waves from the house, especially in the master bedroom suite and the large entertainment room with sweeping ocean views.

Guest access

Guests will have access to towels, linens, coffee, coffee maker, the beach, amazing sound system, an amazing outdoor fireplace, and a wonderful tuned grand piano. You will also have access to fabulous restaurants, french, italian, vegetarian, ocean front, outdoor, and many other types of cuisines and settings. Just ask me for my top 10 list. I lived there for 12 years so I know all the very best restaurants and places to go and be entertained.

Interaction with guests

I am available via email, phone, or tex to answer any questions about the house, spa, TVs, restaurants, lightings, sound system etc.

Other things to note

Please note, I added a 4th bedroom. There is an upstairs loft with a queen sized sleigh bed with beautiful ocean views. I've added another gorgeous queen sized hand carved bed from India downstairs that faces the beautiful back deck with huge outdoor stone fireplace. The room bedrooms are in the same room, one upstairs and one downstairs, so the guests would have to be okay with that situation. The other two bedrooms downstairs are both separate. Additionally, there are two bathrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs by the large entertainment room.

The driveway is fairly steep so elderly guests or guests with mobility issues will have to take that into account. I also suggest cars/trucks will a low suspension pull into and out of the driveway at a 45 degree angle so that your back bumper does not hit the road. I have a BMW 328i and pull into and out of the driveway at a 45 degree angle and my car does not hit the road. There is no issue with cars/SUVs/Trucks that have a higher suspension.

Please no smoking. I would appreciate if you take your shoes off in the house. Please, please shower before using the jacuzzi. It helps the filtering of the water in the jacuzzi immensely. Please be suntan lotion and free of any body oils. Thanks!

We were a group of 8, planning to spend 3 days touring the Sonoma/Napa area. One day before our trip, the devastating fires started. We needed to completely rebook our trip at the last minute. We were thankful for find this wonderful property in the Carmel/Monterey area. The host, Dan, was very helpful and quick to reply to any questions. The home was exactly as pictured. It is a little quirky in layout, but we found that to be charming. We had everything we could possibly need, as we were planning to cook most of our meals at the house. Blenders, multiple styles of coffee makers, every pan/pot/utensil you could ever need when cooking for a large group. There were fresh flowers on the table, hot tub (which we didn't use), and a beautiful outdoor patio area with outdoor fireplace. The exterior is beautifully lit. There is a courtyard with a bubbling fountain and beautiful plantings. Our only notes for others when booking this property is that the bathroom set up is a bit awkward for a large group. There is one bathroom for the main house where the four bedrooms are located. One of the bedrooms is shared - one bed up and one at the base of a curved staircase. Since the person staying in the upper bedroom needs to come down the stairs to use the bathroom, there is less privacy with this set up. It wasn't a problem for us...just good to know. Also, the second bathroom is located next to the great room. We actually had trouble finding this space initially. You access it by going out into the garage, then through a door that leads to the outside. A staircase takes you up (the space is the upper level of the garage). The great room has a 70" TV. It was a wonderful space for all 8 of us to comfortably relax at the end of the day. We really enjoyed our stay here. Close to nearby attractions (5-10 minutes from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel, etc.). The host even provides two free passes to the Aquarium - which was wonderful since it costs $50 per person normally! Thank you, Dan!

Wonderful location and perfect access to the surrounding areas. The house itself is fantastic and well stocked in the way of cooking essentials. The hot tub is nice as well as the outside courtyard area for sitting and relaxing. No complaints whatsoever and would absolutely stay there again

This is a unique, "wild" house. Ocean views are nice, hot tub is great, the "media" room with huge screen tv, piano and ample seating was fantastic. Short car ride to most activities in Monterey and Carmel. The layout, patios, fireplaces and decorating were a feast for the senses. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

If you love quaint, quiet homes and garden patios this is the place for you! Our family really enjoyed the outside lights, patio and outdoor fireplace. We topped the last night off by watching a fire while enjoying a bottle of wine.

Special features: Beautiful design, excellent kitchen appliances, and a pretty, serene outdoor space to enjoy breakfast, conversation, or a good read. Hot tub and sunset view from the top leek also are lovely.
