My wife and I stayed at Amie's house for two nights. Amie was a great host and her home is at perfect location in Pacific Grove. We did not have to drive at all during our trip. There were plenty of great restaurants, antique stores and coffee shops. Beach and Cannery Row is only few mins walk as well. Overall we really enjoyed our valentines weekend at Amie's wonderful house. Great experience!
Great location!!! Just a few blocks from the beach, coastal trail/Monterey trail, and main street Pacific Grove restaurants and services.
As for the place, this is a quaint cottage. Bed was great! Incredibly comfortable. Small dogs are allowed and this is worth the price right there.
Amie had lots of edibles waiting (and they were appreciated upon arrival): bottle of wine, cheese, chocolate, pumpkin cake, crackers.
Not sure if this is place is meant for heavy duty cooking: kitchen is small (no dishwasher), small freezer in fridge, no garbage disposal.
Outdoor patio is cute. The houses in the neighborhood are very close together. Heat is interesting as every room seemed to have a different temperature so keep in mind during colder month stays.
Overall, nice for a couple who is going to eat out, tour the coast, and have their little dog with them.
Amie's place in Pacific Grove is awesome! Cozy, comfortable, centrally located, within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. A great stay in a great place! In fact, the Big Sur half marathon was on Sunday and the runners came right down 17th street in front of the house. It was really cool! Thanks Amie!
Amie's place is beautiful. There was a bottle of wine and chocolate waiting for us!
Amie's place is lovely! My wife and I just spent a glorious weekend in her wonderful cottage, which is a very short walk to the beach, parks, and a 10-15 minute walk to downtown Monterey. It's also right at the start of 17 mile drive, which is perfect. Amie is a great host as well - her place is clean and well appointed, she has a great personal touch with flowers, a bottle of wine, some snacks, a welcome note, and guidebooks for the surrounding area. Highly recommended!
My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in Pacific Grove at Amie's perfect little yellow cottage. This is a wonderful place for a couple to spend a few days enjoying the Carmel peninsula. In addition to the clean, wonderfully-appointed environment, Amie left wine and chocolate and a few breakfast goodies for us. There is no parking, but it was very easy to park on the street even during Concours d'Elegance, which was the same weekend we were there and one of the busiest times for the area. We were easily able to access Point Lobos, Big Sur, Carmel, Pebble Beach, and Monterey either on foot, bike or by car. I would love to have the opportunity to stay here again--it could not have been better. Thanks Amie!
Amie's gorgeous little yellow house is just perfect for two people with all the amenities in this compact house and courtyard. Great location being a short stroll to the market and restaurants. I even had a hair trim in Cambria too. The Aquarium is about a 20-25 walk from Amie's place so no hassle looking for parking. We also loved the squirrels who seem to regularly be around the back courtyard.
Amie goes to extra effort with her property by supplying fresh flowers, some goodies in the frig, beautiful linen and candles. Her kitchen was well stocked with crockery and utensils.
We felt quite privileged to have stayed there, and would highly recommend it for two people. Thanks very much Amy,
Im sorry not to have met you as well, Helen. I feel we would have enjoyed each other. I have a friend who lives in Pismo Beach and would probably have much to tell you about the area. Let me know if you are going to be there a bit longer and I could get you her number.
I promise to look you and Phil up if I get over to Perth. I did go to Sydney and still wish to visit the Gold Coast and Great Barrier Reef. Australia is such a large country!
Im happy you enjoyed your stay and the little critter friends.
We have used many apartments and have high expectations. Positive comments are : excellent location to explore Monterey Bay area; free street car parking; friendly and helpful neighbours; quaint cottage for couples; clean; well maintained; comfortable with all facilities and quality equipment; quiet with sunny rear courtyard; close to good supermarkets, restaurants, shops and beach. Negative comments are TV only operates DVD and does not receive TV channels; no computer BUT computer available free in library from Tuesday to Saturday; ironing board stored outside which needs cleaning before use; no plug in wash basin
Amie's place is decorated in a glam vintage type of feel. It's lovely and I felt very at home there. I used the cottage for my wedding weekend and everything was swell. Amie was even able to arrange to have the place cleaned up while we were gone, so everything was spick and span when my husband and I returned after the wedding. I have to say the place was set up for great pictures, the photographer was able to capture some beautiful pictures there :) Amie even left some champagne, chocolate and a lovely note to tell me congrats!
The only thing that wasn't perfect was that there was still powdered bleach in the shower when I arrived, so my sister and I had to clean the shower ourselves. No big deal, though. Overall, it was a great experience and I would stay there again.
Amie's cottage at Pacific Grove was very comfortable, it really felt like having our own home in a prime location!
Amie was very easy to contact, and went out of her way to leave some lovely touches around for our arrival... flowers, breakfast and even a bottle of wine! The cottage is very well furnished, and we appreciated having the deck area at the back to relax after touring around.
The location was perfect, a couple of blocks from Pacific Grove stores, (highly recommended) restaurants and beach... and walking / riding distance to Monterey and Carmel. We really enjoyed being able to access all the attractions of the area while being able to come back to our peaceful 'retreat'.
Thank you Amie for a great long weekend!
