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.

Out of the hundreds of people that we've hosted, 99% of them have been very cool people. IF you think you might be that grumpy 1%, let us know beforehand and we'll help you find a nice hotel!
evan was a great host in making us feel comfortable and giving us the perfect tips on what to do during our 2 day getaway from the bay. the place is a dream and you wont be disappointed at all!
the bed is extremely comfortable and the shower is just as dreamy as in the pics.
Upon arrival, we are greeted by Zeus (who is super adorable) and Evan. Evan is a wonderful host and really easy going. He showed us around the place. Everything about their home and the room was beautiful. The room is very clean and comfortable. You're able to see the ocean from the bed. I fell asleep easily during the day and again at night. The location is perfect because they are near the aquarium. The bonus about staying here is that they let you borrow aquarium membership passes!
Thank you again Sarah and Evan. Thank you for finding my charger. Will try to visit again soon!
We had a wonderful stay with Evan and Sarah, the cottage is a beautiful place to relax with great views of the ocean. We would definitely recommend staying here!
Sarah and Evan are absolutely adorable. They welcomed me in the kindest way and made me feel very special. The studio is located at the back of their garden with a wide glass window facing the ocean. STUNNING VIEW! The neighbourhood is quiet and you are a short distance from the beach. PARADISE ON EARTH!
This was a great Airbnb experience! Great location, clean, very large comfortable bed, and very friendly hosts. The pictures are very accurate and the view of the ocean was beautiful. We would love to come back sometime.
We had a wonderful stay at Sarah and Evans accommodation - the bed was super comfy, we loved the decor and it was in such a peaceful location with views of the sunset. Sarah and Evan were really helpful and easy to communicate with. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending to other guests, we will definitely be back!
Sara and Evan were excellent host and made us feel right at home. We were greeted with smiles and a wonderful knowledge of the area. The room was clean and as described. We'll be back for future visits to this beautiful part of California!

Evan and I moved from San Francisco to Pacific Grove ten years ago. Evan is an entrepreneur and I am a songwriter. Our kids just moved so we have extra rooms. We have used Airbnb throughout Europe and are happy to now be offering our own home to others. Our interests are traveling, reading, hiking, good food and interesting conversation, rock balancing, yoga, writing and music. We try to get to the beach daily where we walk our three legged dog Zeus.
