In May 2015, Trip Advisor chose Pacific Grove as one of the top scenic destinations in all of the United States! We are very proud of this honor, and it came from reviews by guests who stayed at my home and others in town. You will love it here! We operate with Pacific Grove Transient Use License #83.

The space
No need to fight over who gets the ocean view in this fabulous 6-bedroom, 4-bath home! With 270 degrees of blue-water views, four of the bedrooms have full views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay. The fifth and sixth bedrooms have a quiet, courtyard view just in case somebody doesn't like to go to sleep to the sound of the waves, or watch the moon sinking into the sea at night.
We are minutes from Carmel and Cannery Row in Monterey, and Pebble Beach is our neighbor.
We have a fully stocked gourmet kitchen - and the cook gets an ocean view, too. Dining table seats 10, 14 with extension. Foosball, pinball, Legos, ping pong and lots of other toys for the kids. Steinway grand piano for the musically inclined. Off-street parking for six cars is available.
The Spanish Bay Club is a lovely 20-minute walk away, along the world-famous Pacific Grove recreation trail. Guest club privileges for up to four people for tennis, exercise and weight room, heated pool, spa, sauna, steam, poolside dining, massage and beauty treatments are available. Surf, snorkle, or stroll the beautiful beaches and coves. Make S'mores at a bonfire on our secluded beach.
Nice restaurant just two blocks away. Fabulous Pacific Grove golf course is across the street. Downtown Pacific Grove is 1.5 miles away, with movie theater, farmers' market, restaurants, coffee houses, antiques, shops, bakeries, natural history museum. The world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and American Tin Cannery outlets are about 2 miles away. This remarkable property is perfect for family reunions, corporate retreats, seminars or, of course, a romantic hideaway!
Pricing is $1200 per night for up to eight guests. Guests in excess of 8 will be charged $100 per person per night. Special event pricing and mid-week discounts may apply.

Guest access
Everything except the caretaker's quarters, which has its own entrance and parking area.

Balance: $______ due with this signed contract. Your security deposit is due one month before rental, or by DATE. This payment includes security deposit, which is refundable under the terms below.

** Please note there is a caretaker on the property and security cameras for your protection, and ours.


Security Deposit
A security deposit in the amount specified above is due upon payment of the balance of the rental amount. Owner may deduct charges for utilities and cleaning as described below, non-local telephone usage, Xfinity Pay-per-view, charges at Spanish Bay Resort, services, repairs and replacement, etc., from the security deposit, with any unused portion reimbursed within 21 days of departure, unless Owner reasonably requires additional time to determine damages. Owner will furnish Occupant an itemized statement of any charges against the security deposit. No interest is paid on security deposits.

Excessive Utilities
The rental charge includes payment for normal utilities usage, calculated based on historical utilities usage in the property. We have Smart Meters installed for gas and electric, and usage based on days and times can be accurately calculated. The Occupant shall be responsible for utilities usage that exceeds one hundred twenty five percent (125%) of the normal amount. The governor of California has declared a state-wide water emergency because of the drought, and water use is expensive. PLEASE help us conserve water! Please turn off jets in spa and cover spa when not in use, do not run furnaces with the doors and windows open, turn lights out during the day, run full loads in the washer and dishwasher and conserve water in showers.

Extra Cleaning
The rental amount and/or cleaning charge cover normal cleaning at the end of the rental term. If the condition of the property requires extra cleaning significantly beyond the norm, or the Occupant requests extra cleaning services, the Occupant shall be responsible for the cost of such cleaning. A short-stay cleaning fee of $150 is due on rentals of 3 days or fewer.

Holding Over
If Occupant departs after the check-out time, Occupant will be subject to a charge of one day at the normal daily rental rate. If such holding over disturbs other guests of the property, Occupant additionally will be responsible for all resulting costs and damages.

Reasonable Use
Occupant agrees to use the property as a private vacation residence for the individuals listed on the preceding page only. No other day use or overnight guests are permitted without written consent of Owner. Occupant will not hold an event, party, wedding or gathering that exceeds the maximum occupancy displayed on the contract without written consent from Owner. Violation of any of these conditions will result in forfeiture of entire security deposit. Occupant acknowledges that parties with more than 20 people are forbidden at vacation rentals by Pacific Grove law. Violation of this law will cause an additional charge of no less than the amount of the security deposit, and may be grounds for immediate removal from the property. Occupant agrees that the members of Occupant’s party shall conduct themselves in a quiet, respectful manner that will not disturb our neighbors’ peaceful enjoyment of their properties, and that doing otherwise may result in immediate expulsion. Occupants further agree that they will not allow the property to be used for any improper or illegal purposes.

Late Payment /NSF Check Fees
If payment of any amount is not made within 7 days of the due date, a $100 late payment fee may be added to the total amount due. Occupant shall pay a handling charge of $50 for any check returned by the bank for any reason.

Right to Cancel
A fee will be charged for cancellation, regardless of the reason, including weather, health or travel considerations. The fee will equal the amount of the deposit paid or required as of the date of receipt of notice of cancellation under “Payments Due” above. Fee for cancellation made within two weeks of date of occupancy will equal full rental amount. Occupant agrees that this cancellation fee shall be deemed reasonable given the timing of the rental and the difficulty of obtaining replacement rentals on short notice. There is no refund if Occupant chooses to vacate the property unless it is due to operational problems significantly affecting Occupant’s use, of which Occupant has advised Owner and Owner has not repaired.

Pets and Smoking
Occupant agrees not to bring a dog or other pet to the property during the rental term without the express written consent of Owner. Occupant will use the non-green portions of the courtyard or bare sand areas outside the courtyard for relieving the dog, and properly dispose of any pet waste. Be in control of your dog at all times while at the property; leash is required outside the courtyard at all times. At no time shall a pet be left in the house when the renters are absent, unless the pet is crated. Pets are not allowed on the furniture. NO SMOKING shall occur inside the property. Occupant shall be responsible if any person entering the property during the term smokes in the home. Occupant will be charged an additional fee of no less than $1000 if smoking occurs in the home, and Occupant is responsible for any additional damages incurred.

Liability for Damage
Operating instructions for equipment and appliances are located at the property. Occupant agrees to read and carefully follow instructions in order not to harm or cause malfunctions of the equipment or the property. Occupant shall properly use, operate and safeguard the property, including its furniture and fixtures, and keep them clean. Occupant is responsible for all damages to the property caused by Occupant, members of Occupant’s party, or their guests. Occupant is responsible for ensuring that the property is left upon departure in the same condition and repair as upon arrival, subject to normal cleaning requirements. Occupant shall pay for repair of drain blockages or stoppages unless caused by defective plumbing. Owner will bill Occupant for any and all necessary replacement and repair costs within 45 days of departure. Occupant specifically agrees not to place any objects on the Steinway grand piano.

Right to Repair
Occupant shall provide prompt, detailed telephonic notice to Owner of any damage or disrepair to or affecting the property, or any breakage or other operating problems at the Property, while Occupant is at the Property. Owner will take all reasonable actions to address the repair or other problem as promptly as reasonably feasible. If such damage or disrepair is not the result of the action or inaction of Occupant, and if such damage or disrepair significantly interferes with the use of the property, Owner shall have a reasonable time to replace or repair the same without a reduction in Occupant’s rent.

Endangered Species Habitat Area
Our home is located in the Asilomar Dunes area, which is home to endangered plants and the legless lizard, a rare species. Brochures identifying the endangered species are available in our home, and guests are required to avoid them when walking on the sand dunes of the property. There are designated paths to the North and South of the property that run from our driveway, and guests are required to stay on the paths when exploring the Asilomar Dunes.

Our home is on the public sewer system, but it is below the grade of the sewer line and therefore waste is pumped from a holding tank up to the street elevation. Because of the extra strain on the system, the garbage disposal must not be overloaded. Please throw food scraps in the garbage and use the disposal for small food particles only, to prevent clogging of the kitchen sink or dishwasher. Use only the toilet paper supplied at the house as it is safe for the system. Do not flush feminine products.

Rooftop area off Master
There is a deck off the Master bedroom for your use. However, the rooftop areas accessible through the large windows in the Master and other bedrooms are NOT DECKS AND DO NOT HAVE SAFETY RAILINGS. They are not to be used by occupants for any reason.

Fort for the kids
The Fort is appropriate only for children and adults who are comfortable and competent with climbing a ladder. Adults must supervise children AT ALL TIMES and are solely responsible for their safety in the Fort, and in all other parts of the house and grounds.

Shared driveway
To minimize the impact on the natural environment, we and our next-door neighbors agreed to share driveway access to our properties. There is NO PARKING on any portion of the shared driveway. Please be considerate of our neighbors by making sure their access to the driveway is never blocked, and that ambulance and fire truck access to both houses is always open.

Irregular walkway
The cobblestone pathway in our courtyard is constructed of natural beach rock and is an irregular surface. High-heeled shoes should not be worn on this pathway and care should be taken when traversing it.

Hot tub and Pinball

Access to Property/ Garage Door Opener
Upon notice to Occupant, Owner may enter the property for necessary maintenance, repairs, or other reasonable purposes. Caretakers may be present in the caretakers’ apartment on the property. Occupant shall be furnished with the combination to locks at the property and a garage door opener. Occupant shall properly secure and lock all windows and doors upon checking out, and shall leave the garage door opener on the kitchen island. PLEASE NOTE: When the front door knob is unlocked with the key, it will still lock when the door is shut, unless the button on the inside of the knob is popped out to unlocked position. To prevent being locked out, be sure to note whether the doorknob is in locked position when you shut the door. (The doors to the Master bedroom, greenhouse, kitchen and playroom all have similar doors.)

Security: The property is equipped with exterior security cameras for your protection, and ours.

The caretaker may or may not be present at the property. The caretaker’s suite is at the back of the property, and is accessible by a separate entrance. The caretaker is available to answer questions about appliances, entertainment systems, hot tub operation, etc. But unless the caretaker is asked for assistance, she will stay out of the way during your visit in our home. Phone number for the caretaker is available upon request. Never park in, nor block, the spot by the garbage cans which is reserved for the caretaker.

Limitation of Liability and Indemnification
The liability of Owner or its agents shall be limited to damages arising solely from Owner’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, and then only up to the amount of any rentals and deposits paid. In no event shall Owner or its agents be liable for any special, consequential, incidental or punitive damages. Occupant agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Owner from and against any claim, dispute, cost, loss and liability for loss, cost, personal injury or property damage sustained by any person (including Occupant’s guests) as a result of any cause during Occupant’s rental term. If the property becomes unavailable for occupancy by Occupant during the term for any reason, Owner shall not be liable for any damages but shall be responsible for refunding all deposits of Occupant.

Natural Property
The Property is in a natural location with natural hazards. The ocean is our backyard. The rocky beach can be hazardous. Animals such as mountain lions, deer, coyotes, raccoons, sea lions, and sea otters have frequented the property. Occasionally the body of a sea mammal will wash upon the beach and create an unpleasant odor. This can continue until a high tide floats the animal out to sea. Because we are at the end of the grid, electrical outages can take longer for the utility company to repair. Occupant understands, acknowledges and accepts these conditions.

A note about insurance: While you are at my home, your belongings and automobiles are not insured under my homeowners' or personal umbrella policies. If you wish your belongings to be insured while you are staying at my home, please talk to your insurance agent about a renter's policy. If you are interested in travel insurance, there are many choices on the web. One that I know of (but have no personal experience with) is (URL HIDDEN)

Hydrotherapy Spa (hot tub) for your Enjoyment

For your safety, please, read and obey the following safety precautions.

•Children should be supervised at all times and should not be given access in the spa area.
•Exercise extreme caution to prevent unauthorized access to the spa area by children.
•Keep children away from spa fittings, filter weir and cartridge, floating tablet dispenser, controls, electrical switches, service disconnect panels, equipment and storage areas.

ENTER CAREFULLY! NEVER DIVE INTO SPA. Deck and surfaces are slippery when wet.


•Use of alcohol, drugs or medication before or during spa use is not recommended and may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
•Keep hair and body away from suction fitting covers when spa is in use.
•Never use the spa if the temperature exceeds 104 degrees F (40 deg. C).
•Water temperatures between 100 -104 degrees are considered safe for healthy adults.
•Temperatures of 98-100 are recommended for use by elderly persons and children under 16.
•Prolonged immersion in hot water (over 10 minutes) may induce “hyperthermia” which can cause dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, lethargy and an increase in internal temperature of the body.
•Hyperthermia effects include: unawareness of impending hazard, failure to perceive heat, failure to recognize need to leave spa, physical inability to leave spa, unconsciousness resulting in a danger of drowning, and fever like brain damage in young children under 16.
•Women who are or may be pregnant should not use spa at temperatures over 100 degrees or for long periods of time. Fetal damage may occur.
•Consult your physician before using if you are taking medication, suffer from obesity, heart disease, high or low blood pressure, circulatory problems, or diabetes.

•The spa is serviced several times a week –subject to change, weather, holiday, etc.
•The spa water chemistry is adjusted to industry standards with conventional products.
•Bromine and chlorine are the sanitizers. Do not use the spa if sensitive to these products.
•Shower and rinse well before using the spa to remove residual soap, shampoo, lotions, etc.
•Shower after using the spa to cool down, rinse off perspiration and residual sanitizers.
•Young children, not “pool trained”, must wear swim pants if they are allowed to use spa at all.
•Special service calls to clean up spa and or change the water may result in additional charges.
•Please contact Kirstie Wilde (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if the water quality has been compromised by excessive use or accidents.
•Do not use spa if the water is cloudy or has an odor.

I have read, understand and agree with the above, and have shared this information with everyone in my party who will have access to the hot tub.

I love sharing my home with families on vacation or folks having a reunion or people celebrating a special event.
During your stay
I meet every group of guests personally to give them a tour of the house, the garage-door opener, the combination to the locks, and show them how to work everything. It is so much more relaxing than spending your vacation trying to figure out how to work the TV components, the hot tub, or the pinball machine.
