About this listing
Undoubtedly one of Monterey Bay's hidden gems! Our ocean view home has a beautiful view of Lover's Point and is perfectly located near EVERYTHING Pacific Grove, Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach has to offer.
Our home was professionally remodeled down to the studs in 2006 and kept as a private vacation home. Each room has been professionally decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture and designer selected accessories. It has never been available as a rental until now. It features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout, custom mahogany cabinetry, custom mahogany doors and windows, new window coverings, skylights and old world textures and arches. It won the Preservation Award from the Heritage Society of Pacific Grove for restoration in exemplary fashion and retaining original exterior form and features.
The beautiful gas fireplace welcomes you into the living room and is ready to keep you warm and toasty while you enjoy the view of Lover's Point. A large LCD flat screen TV and all the channels you could ever want to watch are ready to entertain you.
The gourmet kitchen has Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances and custom made butcher block counter tops. Tumbled stone tiles accent the walls. It's stocked with everything you'll need to prepare and serve your meals. The romantic bath is beautifully constructed with travertine tile and features a Jacuzzi brand Solon Spa with a luxuriously relaxing whirlpool and therapeutically effervescent jets. It comfortably accommodates two people.
The master bedroom has a new Hotel brand king size pillow top mattress. The guest room has a new Beautyrest 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.
Open the french doors and enjoy your coffee and a view of the ocean each morning on the backyard patio. Fun filled days can end here romantically each evening next to the warm fire pit. If you like to cook outdoors, a stainless steel gas barbeque is ready to grill your favorite dinner
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 souffle 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 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

This is truly a beautiful and lovely Spanish villa! The decor is so modern and elegant, while stepping inside makes us feel cozy and we can really relax, read or watch tv, enjoy family time together. The beautiful kitchen is well-equipped with everything we ever needed and we had our home-made dinners there every day. The best part I love is the easy access to the ocean front ! Kids went there almost every afternoon. With just steps away I never worried about dragging muddy kids around in chilly wind. They had fun, came back and cleaned up. So fun and easy !
All in all, it's a perfect and memorable vacation home.
Thank you very much, dear Barb!
Beautiful neighborhood. Lovely lovely home. Barb was wonderful and kept in contact with me the day we arrived letting me know we could check in a little early.
The home was in a perfect location right next to beach access and shops. Very comfy for a family of 3, even with a toddler. Love the bbq area in the back yard and fireplace in the main living area. Very short drive to the Aquarium as well.
Great house and location!! Truly a great escape. We loved it and would go again.
Best rental in the area, hands down. We come to Pacific Grove every year so have stayed in quite a few homes right around Lover's Point. The other homes were nice but Barbara's house was the most comfortable for our family of four and in the absolute best location just across from the beach. The pics don't do it justice, it's tastefully appointed, surprisingly spacious and free of bric-a-brac. There's a light-filled living room, a pro kitchen for those of us that enjoy cooking, a jacuzzi tub big enough for an army and a fire pit we put to good use once the kids were in bed. We look forward to our next visit!
What a spectacular place this is. It's elegant, it's well-equipped, and it is steps away from the waterfront. Our stay involved two couples and the accommodations worked beautifully, with two comfortable bedrooms. Plus there is a secluded patio that lured us for a couple of hours of reading and sipping wine. (Gee, wish we were there now....)

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!
