Our quaint, thoughtfully-stocked 300 sq ft cottage is located steps from the ocean, yet tucked away behind our home, affording guests ample privacy, easy parking and all the amenities of home. Sip wine on the patio after a day of adventures while listening to the surf, and sleep soundly on our king Saatva Organic hybrid mattress.

The space
Our 1 bed/1 bath, studio-style cottage is offered fully furnished with kitchenette, organic fair trade coffee, selection of teas, and cooking basics (like oils and spices) provided. Cleaning services and refreshed linens offered weekly, and included in the monthly price.

Please note: we gutted the kitchenette in 2018 and it now has 2 gas burners for cooking, a sink, and fridge. Due to the small space and limited availability of petite-sized appliances, we no longer have an oven or freezer. In place of an oven, we provide a well-rated Breville countertop oven, which is large enough to roast a turkey, make a pizza, or do a little baking, should the mood strike. However, if you plan to do a lot of cooking during your stay, or like to eat ice cream nightly, you’ll likely prefer to seek out a property with a full-sized kitchen.

Pet Friendly*

*PET POLICY: Well-behaved pets are welcome - we are dog lovers! However, based on over 9 years of hosting experience, we now charge a $50 cleaning fee. Airbnb doesn't offer a way to collect this specific fee upfront, so we will request the cleaning fee via the resolution center prior to your departure.

The cottage comfortably sleeps 2. If your party is larger (i.e. a 3rd person, or a child) please contact us in advance to discuss arrangements. We can stash a twin air mattress or Pack 'n Play and extra linens in the closet prior to your arrival, however, for long term stays, families are encouraged to rent a larger property, as the cottage is quite petite - ideal for one person or a couple.

Location:
5 minute walk to Asilomar State Beach, Asilomar Conference Ctr, and the recreation trail
(Bring your binoculars - almost guaranteed sightings of otters and seals, and lately, whale spouts!)

20 minute walk or 5 minute drive to downtown Pacific Grove
(On Monday afternoon/evenings there is a fantastic little Farmers Market)

10 minute drive to Oldtown Monterey/Wharf

Approximately 3 miles from Cannery Row/Monterey Bay Aquarium

Less than 1 mile from the 17 mile drive gates into Pebble Beach

1/3 mile from Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course

20ish minute drive to Carmel Valley/Wine Country

30ish minute drive to INCREDIBLY scenic Big Sur

Bring your bicycles - our mild climate and stunning scenery make the Monterey Peninsula an ideal spot to explore on 2 wheels.

We *LOVE* hosting Airbnb guests - making friends from around the world, and close to home. Whether you opt to stay with us, or elsewhere, I'm confident you'll enjoy your trip to the stunning Monterey Peninsula.

You should know a couple things....
1. We are a pet-friendly property - if you suffer from pet allergies you should know there may have been a guest pup in the cottage prior to your reservation. Though we do clean the cottage thoroughly between guests, it is likely that allergens are still present. Ultimately - we want you to be comfortable, therefore we *STRONGLY* discourage booking if you have pet allergies - there are so many lovely options in the area and most are not pet-friendly.

2. Approximately once per week (usually Friday mornings) we have our weekly yard service. Sometimes the maintenance is relatively quiet (raking, trimming, etc.) and sometimes the situation is far more noisy (leaf blowers, weed wackers, fence repair, and the like).

3. Finally.... As of May 28, 2020, we're only able to host stays of 30 days or longer. We've loved being Airbnb hosts since 2010, but unfortunately, the voters of Pacific Grove approved an anti short-term rental ballot measure last fall and our property no longer qualifies for a permit with the city. (We're located 1/3 of a block outside the "Commercial Zone", sadly!)

Guest access
You're welcome to the cottage and the private patio.

Other things to note
If you look deep enough into our reviews, you'll notice that we cancelled on some of our guests during the fall of 2015, here's why: The addition/renovation of our main house took FAR longer to complete than originally anticipated. We let scheduled guests know of the situation in advance, and gave them an option to cancel, or receive a discounted stay. For those that opted to cancel, we felt it was only fair to cancel on their behalf, incurring fees and penalties on our end as a result. This is because at the time, Airbnb didn't refund their "service fees" when a guest cancelled their own reservation, they only received a FULL refund if the host made the cancellation. Prior to our home renovation, we've never cancelled on our guests, and don't plan to in the future! It was an unfortunate set of circumstances and we feel we handled it as best we could.

Hands down, the best part about our 'hood is the proximity to the ocean. You can (usually) hear it, and smell it from our house, and see its amazing beauty within a brief walk. On a clear night, the sunsets are breathtaking.

We're a late-thirties (errr.... one of us is over forty!) couple that loves to hit the road. While we adore international adventures, we also regularly road trip throughout the beautiful west. Our most recent notable adventure as a family of 4 was to Miami, St Lucia and Dominica - our timing was incredible, as we landed back in the US *just* as news of the pandemic was heating up. Sans kiddos we've enjoyed Paris, Brazil, South Africa, and we're eyeing New Zealand next. We have a 6 year old, plus an toddler, and enjoy exploring the world through their eyes. Our interests include cooking/dining, nature, travel, animals, wine, hiking, and we're big fans of the tv shows Curb Your Enthusiasm, Chef's Table, and Top Chef. We moved to the Monterey Peninsula from Portland Oregon in the fall of '09 and haven't looked back. (Okay, we admit, we REALLY miss the interesting assortment of people, and the incredible restaurants + fabulous food carts!) We are passionate about the environment and do what we can to run a "green" household such as: recycle and compost, serve food that is organic and local, use only earth friendly cleaning/household products, etc. Hosts since 2010, we truly enjoy meeting new people, and welcoming all of our fantastic regulars, many of which feel more like friends, at this point. We would love to host you in our charming guest cottage, a 5 minute walk from Asilomar State Beach in Pacific Grove. We welcome people of all faiths, colors, orientations, and lifestyles to our little patch of paradise.

During your stay
We occasionally socialize with guests and we are typically available for assistance should you need anything (we're happy to help you make the most of your time here with recommendations). However, there are situations where we might not be in town. Generally, we have a caretaker in the main house if we are not going to be present, should anything go awry. We always let guests know ahead of time when we won't be in town, and we're generally reachable by phone/email/text regardless.
