Welcome to the California Dreaming Bungalow. Wake up to an ocean view right from your bed and enjoy the sound of the morning birds singing. Fall asleep to the sound of the seals barking under a star filled sky. And you will sleep well on the king-size organic wool/latex mattress... it has been named the most comfortable bed in the world by numerous guests! Enjoy your private shower with a sky window that opens to the warmth of the sun. If you feel like dancing, enjoy our eclectic vinyl collection with everything from Miles Davis to The Tubes. Does this sound too good to be true? Dare I even mention the 2 free aquarium tickets?

Sarah and Evan are amazing people and great hosts! Even though I was running a bit early, Evan was accommodating enough to let me check-in. The view from the bungalow is gorgeous (as shown in their photos) and the beach is super close. The record player was a nice touch as listening to "Dark Side of the Moon" on vinyl was a trip! I definitely recommend staying with Sarah and Evan.
Such a cute place! And Sarah was so helpful! Her recommendation for a place to eat our first night was our favorite meal! The aquarium was so close and fun!
Our host's were awesome, very easy going and very attentive to anything we might need. Room and ocean view were perfect for our romantic weekend. We loved Zeus and will look forward to our next visit with Evan and Sarah.
Sarah and Evan were warm and helpful, and their place was cute and comfortable. The bed in the bungalow, with it's view of the water, was extremely comfortable, and the excellent coffee and tea that were provided gave us a delicious boost in the morning. We wish we were there right now!
Sarah and Evan were wonderful hosts and very friendly. They gave us the aquarium passes and gave great suggestions on where to go for fun and good food. The bungalow was so comfortable and beautiful. There was a record player that we loved and listened to as many as we could. We brought breakfast back to eat in the patio, it was so tranquil. Thanks!
Having driven a whole day from SF along the coast, myself and my partner were ready to relax and sleep over in advance of the bigger drive further south to Big Sur. We couldn't have dreamed of a better setting in Pacific Grove. Sarah and Even were consummate hosts, quickly putting us at ease and recommending a great local restaurant (Hula's, if you're wondering). We didn't stay for long, only one night - we wanted to keep moving - but they were helpful with suggestions and options for our road trip, and full of great conversations. If we're in the area again we'll definitely seek this spot out - clean, cosy, with a clear view of the sea and a great sense of space... highly recommended!
Sarah and Evan were wonderful hosts! They were full of local tips, helpful with insider restaurants and have a cool little dog in Zeus. The bungalow is at the end of a cul de sac and has peaceful views of the ocean. We highly recommend staying here!
This was our first Airbnb, and, like the others for whom Sarah and Evan were the first hosts, they truly did set the bar high! They were always responsive in their communication, and when we arrived my girlfriend and I were blown away by the accommodation - the bungalow is stunning, a work of art in itself...the main space is both warm and inspiring, we leapt right into their record collection, the bed was, indeed, incredibly comfortable, the self-designed bathroom was spectacular...and more than anything my girlfriend and I truly felt welcomed and appreciated by the gracious hospitality provided by Sarah and Evan. This is an exceptional airbnb, and I look forward to contacting them again next time we're in town. Thank you!!
Sarah and Evan are two wonderful hosts who instantly made us feel at ease and at home!
The bungalow was the perfect place for our little family: cosy, clean and with a beautiful ocean view right from the bed!
It is also very conveniently located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood but still very close to all local attractions. The complementary passes to the aquarium are also a very nice addition!
We will definitely go back without hesitation!!
We were blown away by the great studio that Sarah & Evan have in their back yard! The main room is spacious with a huge king-sized bed that was dreamy & very comfortable. All of the amenities provided-coffee pot(s), coffee, tea, water, small fridge were all great for the am java blast. We thoroughly enjoyed the record player (it's been sooo long since listening to one-& the album collection was perfect). Evan welcomed us with open arms & a small cache of treats for the ADORABLE Zeus! I loved him! I do have to admit (besides our hosts & Zeus) the shower & skylight was my favorite! it rained while we were there but I had the skylight open during my shower! double wonderful! Everything plus the Aquarium tickets were more than we could ask for! Thank you, thank you, thank you for a bit of heaven (& a view when the clouds cleared)! We enjoyed our stay more than you know.
