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.

This place was beautiful! The view was amazing and the location was close to everything we wanted to see. Barbara was an excellent host and made herself available to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a fun relaxing stay in Pacific Grove.
Barb's third-floor corner townhome is located in the best spot in Pacific Grove, overlooking not only Monterey Bay but also Lovers' Point Park and the walking/biking path along the coast. It is also one of the most beautifully appointed homes we have stayed in through AirBnb. The view is exquisite, the beds are large and comfy, the living and dining areas are relaxing and the kitchen provides everything you need. Plus it is within walking distance to both Pacific Grove village and Monterey and a short drive to grocery stores. From Barb's home we biked south to Asilomar and onto 17-Mile Drive. We enjoyed watching the bay change color depending on the time of day. Because Pacific Grove is on the south side of the Bay, you can experience both sunrises to the east and sunsets to the west. We even sighted an enormous whale from Barb's balcony. This was one of the best trips we have ever taken due to a unbeatable combination of luxury, location, and opportunities for exercise, people-watching and scenery. Awesome!
Beautiful apartment right across from Lover's Point. Able to walk to
beach, restaurants, pool etc. The apt has 180 degree view of the
beach and ocean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen fully
set up for cooking. The balcony is a lovely place to have a coffee or
a glass of wine over looking the view. It is one mile to the Monterey
The view of Barb's place is amazing. Barbara is the best host I have ever met. The townhome is definitely my parents' favorite place in our summer trip. We wish we could stay there at least one week.
Our one week stay at the Oceanview townhouse at lovers point was the highlight of our 16 days in California. The Townhouse has absolutely amazing views of the ocean and shoreline. It was very clean, modern and well appointed. Barbara was the perfect host; very personable and easy to access. She went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and to ensure that our stay was pleasant. We have been coming out to the Monterey Peninsula for over 20 years and this was probably our best experience in lodgings. Our party all agreed that our only wish was that we had arranged for an even longer time! I highly recommend Barbara for both her winsome hospitality and the absolutely wonderful accommodations!
Barb was very kind to us even after we filled in the guest information late. The check in process was easy and fast. The place was very clean and just as described in the listing page. The views are really fantastic and we could just sit there and enjoy the views from both sides of the room. We also tried out the restaurant which Barb recommended and the food was delicious! It is too bad that we were only able to stay for one night. We would definitely come back again to stay at this wonderful dream place.
I can only describe this experience as perfect! The apartment is every bit as wonderful as promised on Airbnb, and the views are perfectly stunning. The location is great, with lovely walks in every direction. The space was exceptionally clean and the kitchen a dream: equipped with everything one could desire, all in fantastic condition.
Communication with Barb was very pleasant and efficient and the local tips she gave, together with a Google map for their easy location, were right on!

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!
