Welcome to "The Gingerbread House"! Main House:

A touch of Europe prevails in this unique stucco two-story, five-bedroom, two bath home located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove and the sparkling blue waters of Monterey Bay. With its pointed-arch roof line and front door, river-rock wall and manicured landscaping, this appealing house combines a sense of tradition with sophisticated style and beach comfort. The large home is divided into two separate areas that can be rented separately or together.

A light-filled second-story two-bedroom guest quarters, with bay views and sunny beach décor, features a cozy combined living/dining room and large old-fashioned kitchen.

The three-bedroom first-floor main house, with its sophisticated Pottery Barn décor, spacious living/dining room and hardwood floors, can sleep up to seven. This is the perfect home for family/friend reunions, wedding guests, golf buddies and girlfriend get togethers, as all the bedrooms have been set up for either single or couples. The two units together can sleep 12 single guests or five couples and two singles.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey that has recently undergone a $2 million renovation, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, over-sized towels and beach gear. Pets are allowed on the first floor only.

The first-floor main house, which is 1,700 square feet, features a spacious living room with hardwood floors, sophisticated décor in dark woods and earth colors accented in jewel-tones of blues and greens. Furnishings include a sleigh sofabed that can sleep one, two comfy overstuffed chairs and a large coffee table. A panel of old-fashioned half-paned windows looks out to a manicured front lawn with neatly trimmed shrubs, colorful flowers and well-established trees. On the opposite wall is a 46-inch flat-screen TV with LED, HDL and BluRay DVD. Built-in book cases are filled with inspirational reading material.

A sparkling kitchen, in ocean colors of crisp bright white with royal-blue and turquoise tiles on counter tops and splash-backs, is equipped with an electric stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. A stacking washer/dryer is provided nearby in the bathroom.

The adjacent dining room, with French doors leading out to a small redwood deck equipped with gas grill, has a dark wood rectangular table that can seat eight but expand to seat 12. A tall redwood table and chairs for two situated on the lawn near the deck affords a lovely spot for sipping morning coffee or tea while enjoying the fresh sea breezes.

The master bedroom has a king bed (with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to two twins) and is beautifully decorated with rich dark wood furniture and colors of teal blues and aquamarine greens. A second bedroom likewise has a king that can be converted to two twins. A third smaller bedroom features a trundle bed that can sleep one or two singles or become a king if necessary. All beds have luxury-hotel-quality linens with white sheets, a coordinating white duvet comforter and sophisticated coverlets in vibrant sea tones of turquoise and aquamarine blues.

A full bathroom features mossy- and forest-green tiles around the sink, on the walls and lining the shower-tub.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually, then there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house, then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.


Guest Suite:
Gaze out into the distance over tree and rooftops to the brilliant blue waters of Monterey Bay from this sunlit second-floor aerie in a lovely traditional house located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove.

You will be greeted upon your arrival with complementary hors d'oeuvres and wine, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey that has recently undergone a $2 million renovation, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, over-sized towels and beach gear.

The spotless newly renovated 750-square-foot, two-bedroom guest quarters can sleep four-five guests and can be rented together with the first floor of the main house or separately. (Please note that four is the maximum number of guests if rented separately from the main house.)

This light-washed dwelling has a combined living/dining room, two bedrooms, one full bath and a large friendly old-fashioned kitchen with a long white farm type table that doubles as extra counter space or a spot to pull up a stool and converse with the cook.

The décor, with its photographs of playful otters and palette of crisp whites, sandy beiges, and turquoise blues and greens, has a beach-cottage quality that imparts a relaxed, getaway feel.

From your seat on a day couch, you can look up from reading one of the numerous inspirational books provided and watch the clouds drift by over sailboats in the distance on the bay. Enjoy the same expansive view as you take your meals at a round glass-topped dining table and chairs that seat four in the opposite corner.

Should you prefer to be entertained electronically, a 42-inch flat-screen TV with LED, HDL and BluRay is provided. The living room also has a comfortable chaise perfect for reading or watching movies and TV.

The surprisingly large kitchen, with its color scheme of bright and creamy whites, includes an electric stove, microwave and refrigerator (no dishwasher). Built-in cabinetry offers plenty of storage. Alfresco meals can be prepared on a separate gas grill and enjoyed at a wooden table and benches in a nook bordered by a hedge just off the front lawn.

The master bedroom features a king bed with white shutter headboard, Memory Foam topper and highest-quality spa linens. The second bedroom, with a trio of half-paned windows overlooking the front lawn, also features a king with Memory Foam topper and luxurious linens and a built-in chest of drawers. If preferred, the king beds in both rooms can be converted to twins.

The full bathroom, with its recently updated look, features a fresh white tiled floor, cottage-style white vanity sink and a white-tiled tub. You will find vibrant turquoise and white plush terrycloth towels and spa robes that will make you feel totally pampered.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually, then there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.

Please note that there is no washer and dryer in the upstairs unit.

The many delights of Pacific Grove's quaint city center, including boutiques, shops and a multiplicity of outstanding restaurants, are within easy walking distance, as is the stunning rocky shoreline of Monterey Bay with its pedestrian and bike trail that extends for miles, with the famed Aquarium at one end and Asilomar Beach at the other. The popular destinations of historic Monterey and the artist colony of Carmel-by-the-Sea are 10 minutes away by car.

Guest Comment
"We truly loved our time at the Pine Ave. house in Pacific Grove. Everything we needed was pleasantly arranged. Extra blankets, folding chairs so we all could sit together at the dining table, and many little extras that made our stay so comfy. Thanks for thinking of everything so we could relax. The colors and decorations around the beach and shells theme was lovely, as were the pictures in each bedroom. Each room is a real "charmer!" Thanks for creating such a lovely vacation home! Thanks also for your quick responses to our questions that helped us plan our stay. We walked to a wonderful restaurant only 2 blocks away. And it is only a half mile (per our car's GPS) to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, and some of our group walked there from the house!"
