Description

Welcome to Nautilus! Beach house sleeps up to 6 adults and 1 child age 12 or under.

Walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium from this outstanding location. Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets when you book this home!

The best views in Pacific Grove can be seen from the top of this New England-style weathered gray cottage, with expansive vistas of the Monterey Bay that stretch from Lover’s Point all the way to Santa Cruz. The 1400 square feet, 3-bedroom, 3-bath home is just steps away from the beach and easy walking distance from Pacific Grove’s galleries, boutiques and restaurants.

Each bedroom is on a different floor in this split-level home, a great way to allow personal space for family members or couples. Climb to the upper floor, and enjoy outdoor seating areas and sweeping views from a small captain’s walk on top of the roof allowing for views of whales and ships on Monterey Bay.

This pet-friendly residence includes modern nautical décor in soothing shades of blue, driftwood gray, sand and white; a spacious garage offers one space for parking as well as storage of beach items. A second car may park in the driveway and a third directly in front of the house. In addition to its close proximity to downtown Pacific Grove, it’s also just a 5-minute car ride from the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 15 minutes to charming Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 20 minutes to Carmel Valley wineries and restaurants.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

The front door opens into a great room that includes the living room, kitchen and dining room, perfect for gathering everyone together for meals or conversation, with hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen features updated stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner gas range and a convection oven, black Corian countertops and two sinks for easy meal preparation. A capiz shell chandelier is the focal point of the dining room area, which includes a table that seats eight as well as counter seating for two at the kitchen island.

The living room has a cozy sectional sofa surrounding the gas fireplace and 50-inch HDTV, as well as a window daybed in the living room that can be used as an additional sleeping area for 1 child or seating with ocean views.

Also on this floor is a bedroom with a day bed for a single sleeper or it can convert to one king with foam topper. A bathroom with a combined tub/shower is nearby. Stacking washer and dryer laundry area is tucked inside the bathroom. A small office with desk is located off the kitchen.

Downstairs, guests will find a larger bedroom with two twin beds that convert to a king, along with a reading nook with an en suite bath, which includes a shower with custom tile work and plenty of vanity space near the sink. French doors lead to a small outdoor area that includes a patio with bistro seating.

The master suite on the top level has a double-sided gas fireplace as well as sunset views through its windows, and a small balcony with bistro seating where morning coffee or an evening drink can be savored. The bedroom includes a king bed that converts to two twins, a 42-inch HDTV, and hardwood floors. The bath includes a custom sink set into a marble vanity, a shaving mirror, and shower, and the dressing area also includes a bonus sink with plenty of storage and counter space.

"We had a great time with our family at this quaint, beach house just two blocks up from the Coastal Trail. The location was great with easy walks to Lovers Point and Cannery Row & the Aquarium. The house was clean and quiet with a feeling of privacy with each bedroom on a different floor. We enjoyed the rooftop deck for a sunny breakfast overlooking the view. We will be back!"

"A beautiful home to stay. This home is a beautiful place to stay while enjoying the sights of Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel. We enjoyed this stay as a family celebrating our son's 23rd birthday. With the weather rainy all weekend it was great to have the space to spread out and enjoy each other's company. We will definitely be back."

"Cute PG home!  Very cute home with easy walks to downtown PG and two blocks to the ocean. Was a nice place to relax and the bay window/daybed in the living room was cozy spot to hang out. Was nice that each bedroom has its own bathroom. Love the professional stove. We had some maintenance issues come up and management took care of them. The bedroom on the garage level can get pretty cold and there are space heaters that work well. The driveway on a slope is kind of tricky to get into without banging the bottom of the car. There is salt and pepper, oil spray and there was plenty of foil/saran wrap, laundry and dish soap during our stay. The coffee starter has two 4-cup bags and 3 k-cups. The bathrooms have shampoo/conditioner/liquid soap. Grove Market on Forest is a nice neighborhood grocer (with the best fresh-squeezed OJ)."

"Wonderful place to stay in Pacific Grove!  We enjoyed staying at 3688 Nautilus. Having a bedroom and bathroom on each of three floors made for more privacy for our 3 couples plus a toddler. The home was spotless and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes and serving ware to make cooking fun. The daybed in the main living area was perfect. We walked to the Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf, and to the Pacific Grove Butterfly Sanctuary (and further on) in the other direction. Just a few short blocks to the beachfront walking and bicycling paths. Not far from grocery stores. We would stay here again."

"Gorgeous multi level home for family!  Our family loved the design and the rooms. Each room is unique and designed well. We walked to the aquarium and resturants. At the top we enjoyed the view of the ocean. We kept the windows open at night for the cool air. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Reminds me of seaside Florida. A major perk for us was it was close to everything and 10 minutes from Carmel."

"Close to everything we wanted to visit. Walked everywhere!  We just returned from 5 beautiful days at Nautilus with my siblings for our annual reunion. This house slept 6 of us and we rented 2 motel rooms in the Asilomar area for the other 4. All 10 of us had dinner in the house 3 nights with plenty of room to enjoy ourselves. This house is airy with lots of natural light and several rooftop areas to get away where the view is spectacular of the Bay. The location is just blocks from the walking trail next to the bay and the aquarium. The kitchen was fully equipped. We did have a couple of maintenance issues that were attended to promptly by Brandon and fixed by Tim. All the Sanctuary staff that I dealt with were responsive and pleasant. I highly recommend this house and the Sanctuary folks."

"Amazing location and amenities!  The description of home was extremely accurate and photos true to the beauty of seeing Pacific Grove. Our group of six who arrived to run Big Sur felt very fortunate to arrive to such a beautiful and cozy home. We found the living room, kitchen and bedrooms perfect for our visit. We benefited from amazing weather, amazing seaside views, morning coffee on the upstairs deck and proximity to town down, cafes, shops and the seaside. The staff responded in a quick manner to telephone inquiries and this was much appreciated.  This rental option is spoken of highly and we would recommend anyone going to Monterey and Pacific Grove to consider this option!"

"Perfect location in Pacific Grove! This home was in the perfect location for connecting to everything! It was a block and a half from the ocean, a nice five block stroll down Lighthouse Avenue to shops and breakfast in Historic downtown Pacific Grove (which we did often) and about a 5 block walk to Cannery Row! The home itself was so ready for us and made our arrival completely seamless! We pulled in the driveway, got the key from the lockbox and walked in to a great bottle of wine! The home was very open and great for socializing. Bedrooms were spacious and we were thrilled with sitting out on the roof-top perch for all six if us, drinking wine and watching the ocean! Really enjoyed that the house was so completely stocked with everything we needed! So happy with this experience!"

The property manager was very attentive to all our needs - even an urgent care address when my granddaughter was ill. Be sure to take a walk along the water and enjoy the fresh air. Il Vecchio has delicious rustic Italian not to be missed. Don't forget to have sunset cocktails on the upper deck of this lovely home!"
