My location is hard to beat! You can literally walk or bicycle to most of the main attractions in the Pacific Grove / Monterey area. I'm between Lovers Point / Recreation Trail, and the downtown. It's a two block walk to the ocean or downtown.
NOTE: Winter is here, and the house can get cold! There is a single radiator in the middle of the house so I will try to make plenty of blankets available. DO NOT WASH COMFORTERS PLEASE!
This listing is for the ENTIRE HOUSE. This listing is only active when I am out of town. I also have a separate listing for the guest bedroom, which is available when I am in town.
The location is what makes this place special. IT IS SMALL, but so close to the water and downtown. You can walk to Lovers Point / Recreation trail in about a minute, and downtown shops and restaurants in about two minutes. The Aquarium is about a mile away. The house is tiny, only about 800 sq ft, which is common for older homes in PG. The main bedroom is 11 feet by 9 feet with a Queen Size temperpedic bed. The guest bedroom is only about 8 feet by 10 feet, and there one bathroom between the two bedrooms (the bathroom has two doors - one to each bedroom). The photo of the guest bedroom shows just a twin bed, but it is actually two twin tempurpedic mattresses on top of each other. When placed side by side, they are the size of a standard king bed. There is very little storage in either room, and the closets and drawers are mostly filled with my stuff. So you will for the most part need to live out of your travel case. Presumably you'll be spending most of your time checking out the beautiful locale, but it is very quiet here, so there should be no problem getting a good nights sleep. This house will comfortably accommodate 2 people in each room, but another person could sleep on the living room couch, or a small child could fit into either room with parents. Less than a block away is Caledonia Park, which has a wonderful playground, picnic tables, and a hard surface basketball court.
TO CLARIFY, SHOWN IN THE PHOTO OF THE GUEST BEDROOM ARE TWO TWIN TEMPURPEDIC MATTRESSES ON TOP OF EACH OTHER. YOU CAN PLACE THEM SIDE BY SIDE AND HAVE A BEDDING AREA THE SAME AS A KING SIZE BED. Though the bedding on each mattress is for a twin bed.
FINALLY, NOTE THAT A FIFTH PERSON IS ONLY POSSIBLE IF IT IS A CHILD SLEEPING IN THE SAME BED AS PARENTS, OR, IF SOMEONE WANTS TO SLEEP ON A SOFA OR FLOOR. I charge $10 more per day for the third person.
You will have access to the full house, which includes: a full kitchen, the only modern appliance I don't have is a dishwasher. I have a large dining room table, so if you'd like to cook meals here it is no problem. I have a living room with a large flat screen television if you need it, and I have a laundry room if you need to do laundry. I have a front porch, and also a very nice patio in the backyard. I also have free wi-fi.
FEEL FREE TO EAT ANY OF THE FOOD IN THE HOUSE (just not my liquor or wine please!). I have basic staples on hand (coffee, sugar, cream, bread, butter, peanut butter, jelly, pasta, etc).
There is a great grocery store a few blocks away, and excellent restaurants and coffee shops also a few blocks away. Please see the "guidebook" for this listing.
I will not be around when if this listing shows availability, so you are on your own. It is a quiet neighborhood, so please have fun but no loud music or loud talking past about 9 PM. I do ask that prior to you leaving, you strip the bedding and put it into the washing machine, and put new bedding on which I will leave for you.
Lots of charming houses in the area, this is a neighborhood where the neighbors still sit out on their front porches and are very friendly. It is a very safe and quiet neighborhood, yet located very close to Lovers Point, one of the most beautiful places on this section of the Pacific Coast.
Most of the local attractions are within walking distance. The aquarium is about a mile away, but it is a beautiful walk on the recreation trail, which is only a couple of blocks away. Once you get to the aquarium, you can hop on board the free trolley, which will take you all around Monterey. Getting around by bicycle is an excellent way to see the area (especially Pebble Beach). You can get to Big Sur by public transit, but driving your own car is recommended.
Also close to golf courses. A hidden gem is Pacific Grove Municipal Golf course, which is located right on the edge of town.
