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 has to offer. Enjoy the panoramic ocean view while walking along Monterey Bay's recreation trail which is just outside the door.

The Space

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

Guest Access

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

  • I reserved Barb's Beautiful Villa with Ocean View for a Mother's Day weekend getaway. Barbara made it so easy to check-in, and check-out. She really is a great communicator (although I didn't have to contact her much, but when I did, she made herself available to get a hold), and she has the house stocked with everything we could need from dinnerware, blankets, towels, gas grill. The space is warm, inviting and has calm, positive energy. There were 3 adults and a child, and there was enough space for all of us! Other than the house that we completely took advantage of, we took advantage of its location. We couldn't have had a better time, especially our walks to the aquarium, and the beach (which is literally across the street).

  • Barb was a superb host. The arrangements were perfect, and she was in touch throughout to make sure we didn't miss anything we needed.

    The villa is very quaint, nicely furnished and just steps away from the ocean. The photos don't do it justice.

  • My family of four has spent a long weekend at the Beautiful Villa in Pacific Grove and it was a wonderful experience. The house turned out exactly as described - painstakingly remodeled with high end materials, finishes and appliances, very cozy and tastefully decorated. On top of it there was also a great private patio. The location was perfect - two steps from the ocean front and a walking distance from most major points of interest in Monterey.
    Our special thanks to Barbara - she's the most welcoming and helpful host! We appreciated her list of recommendations for restaurants, groceries and everything else you would need in the unfamiliar place - it's spot on. The only thing I would add to the list is Traders's Joe that's right next to Safeway market :) The complimentary passes to Monterey Aquarium were a very nice touch.
    Thank you Barbara!

  • Barb's home was the prefect setup for our trip. My wife and in-laws loved the place and the attention to details. Everything was top notch and well worth the price. My favorite aspect was the 30 second walking distance to the boardwalk from where we could rent bikes or just stroll 20 minutes north to visit the aquarium and enjoy great food at cannery row.

  • Barb accommodated us perfectly - communicated clearly and easily. The house was beautiful and only a block away from the waterfront which was beyond amazing. Lover's Point is down the street by the water front and has a park and restaurant which served pretty good. I am definitely thinking about heading to Barb's place again for a long weekend.

  • The Pacific Grove villa was lovely. We enjoyed our stay there with our 18 month old son. The home was pretty child-friendly. We had parks close by, family friendly restaurants, passes to the Monterey Aquarium and lots to see. We were on our baby moon, as we are expecting twins early this summer. The master bedroom was furnished with a King-sized bed, which was extremely comfy for my pregnant wife. We will be back again for sure.

    Our host was very easy to communicate with. She responded quickly to use and even let us check out later to accommodate our son's nap schedule. This was our second AirBnb experience and first in the U.S.

  • My family and I had a wonderful stay here. The house is beautifully finished. It had all the amenities and simplicity of a high-quality hotel, but all the peace and comfort of a home. It really did feel like our own secret beach villa! Just a block up from the ocean in a quieter corner of Monterey, the stay was quiet and so cozy. After a walk along the water and exploring the rocky point just steps away from the house, we had a bbq and fire on the patio! Talk about a beach paradise.

    Barb was the most gracious and contentious host. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to any and all of our friends!

  • Great house, so close to the ocean we could hear the waves!!

  • I have stayed in many different houses and apartments, and this was, hands-down, the absolute best. It's a gorgeous, spacious house in the best possible location in Pacific Grove - right across from the beach / walking path and in the lovely Victorian district - there's also a park 2 minutes walk away that has a fabulous farmer's market on Monday. Everything in the house was beautifully designed and maintained - it really was a home rather than a rental. Barb was fabulous throughout - thank you so much!

  • Barb's place was FANTASTIC! It was so lovely and so close to the beach! She was extremely responsive and so kind. I would recommend staying with Barb to everyone!

About
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!
