Beach Bungalow in Pacific Grove

House - Entire home/apt · Surf Ave, Pacific Grove, CA 93950, United States

The Space

Enjoy the gorgeous central California coast line and all its activities while based at our comfortable beach bungalow. We are half a block from the beach on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula; walk to (email hidden) municipal course with the back nine on the ocean, tour the still operational lighthouse, SCUBA in the deep sea canyon of Monterey Bay, kayak with sea otters, bike ride along the shore and enjoy the fresh air and local wild life. This is a world class golf, SCUBA, and birding destination, as well as a very peaceful venue to enjoy doing nothing at all!

We have two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed; one with an ocean view and one with garden access. Two bathrooms each offer a shower and one a tub. The sofa is good as an additional sleeping area and how we calculated 5 people could comfortably stay here. We also have an inflatable queen sized mattress that can be set up in the carpeted laundry part of the garage that could be used as sleeping space. Additionally you will enjoy a living room with gas fireplace and big screen TV, a well appointed, fully stocked kitchen with dishwasher, comfortable dining area, laundry facilities in the attached garage, and a gloriously large, sunny, wind-protected back yard. There is a hot tub in the back yard and a fire pit.

Just blocks from public transportation you can access the Monterey Bay Aquarium (use our two guest passes), Monterey's old adobes, Carmel's charming shops, Cannery Row's attractions, or visit some of our outstanding local wineries. Local restaurants are highly recommended and we'll leave you a listing of our favorites. The tide pools within a few steps of our door are safe haven to hermit crabs, sea stars, and many other sea creatures.

Our 2 bicycles, two seat kayak, and boogie boards are a part of the package deal when you enjoy your holiday with us on this glorious shoreline. For the techies among you, Geocaching is awesome here! There are about 20 different treasures to find in the immediate area-some at high tide, and some at low tide! Horseback riding is available at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center nearby. Kids bikes can be rented at Bay (email hidden). They even deliver the bikes to the house!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is in a perfect location and right around the corner from the beach/ocean. A sweet house that definitely gives you the beach feel. A great backyard, we ended up after coming home in the evening , retreating to the wonderful fire pit. Shelly was very easy to communicate with and the property was exactly as described. We would definitely stay there again!

  • Amazing house and backyard. A perfect home base for exploring the area. Shelley was super helpful and responsive.

  • We enjoyed our stay at this adorable home just 1 block from the ocean! Beautiful yard, hot tub and home all together! We will certainly return as soon as we can. We also got to meet Shelly and she was so nice! Great food down the street at Fishwife. Minutes away from Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium made for a perfect get a way spot! Thanks for a great stay!

  • We spent a weekend in Shelly´s place and it was just absolutely AMAZING. The house is beautiful, decorated with so much love and just at the perfect location. If you love being close to the sea her place is the best spot to be and we could not have been any luckier. Shelly made sure we had everything we need when we arrived and it we were so surprised when we even found breakfast in the fridge for us - so sweet. We can only highly recommend her place - it is the perfect spot for a weekend break surrounded by beautiful landscape and just the best place to switch off and relax!

  • Excellent property and facilities in a wonderful location. We had a superb time and can only give top marks to Shelley and Joe for providing such a place. The outdoor facilities including the hot tub, barbecue and fire pit were particularly enjoyable and well used by us and with the weather being kind during our stay they provided the perfect end to days out and about.
    We wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay again if the venue was available and we were to visit this part of California again. Top marks and many thanks.

  • My family had such a great trip and Shelly's Surf Ave home made it all the better.! It was such a comfortable home with all the amenities needed. The back yard is stunning, we will be bringing things to grill next time we come. Thanks Shelly!

  • The house was perfect for our needs...great location, wonderful outdoor space in the backyard, comfortable beds, excellent showers, well stocked kitchen, super comfy sofa, nice tv...really a great place for a relaxing getaway. Shelly was a delight to deal with. She made everything easy, including clear instructions, and a very welcoming attitude.

  • The house was absolutely perfect for us and the location just can't be beat. The house is 1 block away from the ocean and right next to the 18th hole on the Pacific Grove golf course. All of Pacific Grove and the waterfront activities in Monterey are within walking distance. The house backyard is amazing and a great place to relax, with a hot tub, beautiful landscaping, fire pit, lighting and plenty of seating. They even let you use their kayak and bike, although I didn't use either while I was there! Shelly was very accommodating (even providing us with bread and eggs for breakfast) and proactively offered to extend our stay if the tournament was extended into Monday due to weather. Overall - it was perfect for us and I would highly recommend Shelly's house to anyone visiting.

  • We stayed for a long weekend in January and the combination of a great place to stay, sunny warm weather and many sightseeing options nearby made it perfect!
    The photos don't make justice to Shelly's house. It's even prettier than we expected. The backyard is huge and everything is very well taken care and organized. There are notes and instructions all over the place, so you always know how things work and what's off-limits for guests.
    The beach is just a 2 minute walk away and the sunsets there are breathtaking.
    Our group had 4 people and we loved staying outside in the sitting area at night with the gas heaters on. The hot tub is very nice as well.
    Overall, we felt very happy to have chosen this house. We were positively surprised and will surely return some day.

  • Fantastic location! We were able to bike all around the peninsula with the bikes provided. Walk to the ocean to watch the sunset. Great yard for hanging out and nice comfortable house with everything we needed. Shelly was helpful throughout. Would definitely recommend.
