About This Listing
Breathtaking panoramic picture postcard views await your arrival! Our home is undoubtedly the most amazing ocean view property on the Monterey Bay and it is centrally located to everything Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel have to offer.
Walk just one and a half blocks to all of Pacific Grove's great restaurants and shops. View the most amazing underwater sea creatures and wildlife at the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium less than a mile away in Cannery Row. Take a stroll along the oceanfront recreational trail or soak up the sun on the white sand beach of Lover's Point. There is so much to do and so much to see...and you're right in the center of it all!
Our home has been professionally decorated and features beautiful furniture and accessories. From the Ralph Lauren leather chairs to the granite countertops you will enjoy luxury in every room. The living room has a large LCD flat screen TV for you to enjoy all of your favorite shows. The master bedroom has a new king size mattress. The guest room has a new queen. Both are amazingly comfortable. Each room has a new LCD flat screen TV. Linens and towels as well as a washer and dryer are provided to give you all the comforts of home. Complementary private, gated parking is included.
For those that enjoy culinary perfection a one block walk will put you in the middle of some of the best dining Monterey Bay has to offer. Pepper's (the best gourmet Mexican food ever - and a local favorite) is literally a block up the street. You'll also find Passionfish (excellent seafood and a favorite of Rachael Ray), Fandango (try their famous rack of lamb and don't miss the Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert), Joe Rombi's (for the best Italian around) and a host of other restaurants to wow your taste buds within a stroll.
For the adventurous vacationer just walk out the front door and walk, run, bike or skate for miles on the paved Monterey Bay recreation trail. You can literally enjoy the view while walking to the aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and downtown Monterey. The hardcore bicyclists and runners can follow the trail for 18 miles from Pacific Grove all the way to Castroville with access to Seaside and Marina.
Surfers, kayakers, scuba divers and sunbathers can just walk across the street and down the stairs (Yes! Its that close!) to Lover's Point beach and start your adventure. On busy weekends you'll see people launching here all day long. Grab some lunch at the snack bar and you'll never have to leave the beach. Everyone will enjoy a stroll through Lover's Point Park. Weddings are ongoing every few hours, artists are painting seascapes and everyone is enjoying the day.
You'll love our home. It’s luxuriously comfortable, central to everything and easily accessible. Give us a call and we'll be happy to tell you all about it and help you plan a great vacation.

We were very lucky to stay in this beautiful apartment with a stunning ocean view. The apartment was clean, delicate, and cozy. The bed are so comfortable. And all the details of check-in and check-outs are very thoughtful. It definitely worth the fortune to stay at this gorgeous apartment. And we even wanted to stay one more nights. Pity we can't ... Thank you Barbara for this wonderful experience!
Barbara was incredibly friendly and helpful, and the views were just as good as they look in the listing pictures! The food in the area is wonderful too - we particularly enjoyed Passionfish.
My family (including our 1.5 year old toddler) had a really great time at Barb's place. The location is great, the views are amazing, and she's a thoughtful, friendly host. Every detail was communicated ahead of time so we never had to worry about anything. When we arrived the place was immaculately clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast each morning (well, minus the groceries of course).
We loved staying here and might make this an annual tradition.
Barb was very welcoming and made sure we had all of the check-in information easily available.
The apartment was exactly as described and the location is 5 Star +. You are literally across the street from Lover's Point and the Monterrey trail. We saw whales and otters from the balcony.
The blow up mattress worked very well and very comfortable for our son. We definitely plan to book again when we return next year.
We absolutely loved staying at Barb's condo at Lover's Point. The views from the condo were simply stunning. The decor was beautiful. If a couch is important to you, please note that the sofa has been replaced with four oversized buttery leather chairs. Very comfortable and a great way to enjoy unbelievable views from the living room windows.
I would not hesitate to recommend the property to friends. I can't believe something like this even exists so close to the Bay area.
The location was perfect, and the views were outstanding! The condo was very clean and comfortable. The location is across the street from the ocean and park. It's a quick walk to cafes, grocery, and restaurants. Pacific Grove is a lovely area, and a perfect place for a quiet getaway.

About the Host, Barb
We are the typical California family with busy lives and kids that are rushing in all directions at the same time. When we play, we play hard and try to do it all whenever possible. Our vacation time is no different. We try to experience everything we can during the day and relax at night. We enjoy Pacific Grove and all the activities that the area has to offer. Being a family, variety is important and Monterey Bay provides it all!
