Description

Welcome to Ships Watch! Home sleeps Up to 7 Guests

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

This lovely Victorian home in Pacific Grove harkens back to Monterey Bay’s past as a shipping and fishing port, with vintage nautical touches and coastal artifacts that will make guests feel as though they’ve stepped back in time.

At the same time, the 4-bedroom, 2-bath home has been extensively remodeled with modern conveniences and a spacious yard that’s perfect for barbecuing and entertaining.

Its location is also ideal for enjoying the wonders of Pacific Grove — it’s just a few steps from shopping and dining in the quaint downtown, or a 10-minute walk to the beach or to the butterfly groves. It’s also only 5 minutes by car to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach.

Windows and skylights throughout the home bring in warm natural light as well as offering great views of Monterey Bay from the upper story.

The 1,400-square-foot two-story home, built in 1890, has been completely refurbished for guests’ comfort, with a nautical color scheme in reds, blues and tans, vintage furniture, a window seat in the front room’s bay window, a fully equipped kitchen and a backyard fenced for privacy, which includes a hand-laid flagstone patio.

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 pet-friendly home features a cozy front room with a gas fireplace featuring hand painted tile, where games and books will keep guests entertained on evenings around the fire. A 50-inch HDTV is available over the fireplace, and an adjacent sitting area with chaise lounge and console table is another place to curl up with a good book.

The large dining room table seats 8 on slip covered parson’s chairs, and the updated kitchen includes taupe tile floors, quartz composite counter tops, new appliances that include a gas range, and a deep porcelain farmhouse sink with goose neck faucet.

The downstairs master bedroom, decorated in the same vintage nautical theme, contains a queen bed, and the nearby bathroom has a large custom-tiled shower in ocean colors as well as an adjustable shower head.

The second floor features three bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as a children’s play area with beanbag chairs and a TV with DVD player. The bathroom features vintage tile floors and a pedestal sink as well as an old-fashioned claw foot bathtub to which an adjustable shower head has been added.

The backyard contains an outdoor kitchen with plumbed gourmet gas grill and granite counter top for food preparation and serving. Guests can enjoy evenings under the cypress trees around a fire pit, and find serenity in the sound of a built-in waterfall. A note regarding the yard: Guests are asked to keep voices at a respectful volume at all times and to bring outdoor conversations/activities inside by 9pm due to the close proximity of nearby neighbors who are sensitive to noise.

A one-car garage with bonus room for beach gear is available as well, in addition to street parking.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

"Exceeded our expectations! Met all our needs for the visit and was in proximity to the beach, restaurants, cafes and Aquarium. Our toddler loved the annex and the character Home was impeccably and functionally furnished. We look forward to our next visit!"

"Very comfortable stay.  Our group of 6 was very comfortable in this house. It’s an old house with a lot of character in a quiet neighborhood. It was clean and had all the amenities we needed. Very nice updated kitchen. We loved having coffee in the morning outside by the gas fire pit (much cooler there than we anticipated!). Upper single bed really best for a child, but other 3 bedrooms were good size. Long walk to the ocean but easy drive to everything we wanted to see. Enjoyed our stay!"

"Delightful home for a family gathering!  Perfect home for a family gathering; we loved sitting outside by the fire, eating meals around the lovely dining table and gathering in the living room. The house was equipped with thoughtful amenities and very comfortable. Great location to many options for exploring."

"Great house and location!  We had a great family vacation at Ships Watch! We are two couples and two children under the age of 4--and really enjoyed not only the house itself, but also the central location to all kinds of fun nearby activities--both within walking and driving distance.

The top floor area was well-appointed for the kids and the kitchen had everything we needed to make a couple of dinners at the house. We especially enjoyed the firepit out back in the evening. The washer and dryer was a handy addition as well. A little extra seating in the living room would have been ideal, but with so much to do in the area, we spent very little time sitting around watching TV anyway.

Great location in the quaint town of Pacific Grove: close to Cannery Row and the Aquarium (quick drive and about a 30 minute walk), a number of nearby restaurants and coffee shops, and perfect jumping off point to all the world-famous golf courses to the south (also check out the more economical Pacific Grove Golf Links just around the corner).

Overall we had a fun and memorable stay at Ships Watch and would highly recommend it!"

"What a lovely, welcoming place!  The hosts really put in the extra effort to make this home welcoming and charming. When we arrived, the electric candles were on and there was delicious cheese awaiting us in the fridge! Everything was clean and cozy and the location is great. This is an easy walk to the beach and Lover's Point. There are also a dozen restaurants within a five minute stroll.

As for the house, the pictures show pretty much everything you need to know. It would probably be most comfortable if all four bedrooms don't need to be utilized as the two on the top floor are very close together and the three upstairs all share one bathroom. But we had all bedrooms filled and still had a great time. The kitchen is lovely, too, very nicely updated without sacrificing the old-time charm of the house."

"Great property near downtown! House was very clean and welcoming with lots of themed decorations.  The updated kitchen was nice, and we had plenty of room to sit and dine (party of 5).  Short drive to downtown, the beach, Monterey etc so it was super convenient.  Quick communication, and seamless booking / instructions process."

"Great place lots of charm comfortable beds and towels real close to town!  Great older home. Fixed up nicely and exquisitely decorated. Perfect location for walks to town and to the water. Beds and pillows and towels were super comfortable. Enjoyed a birthday party in the outside entertainment area around the fireplace. Definitely made our first trip to California as a family feel more like being home away from home. Thank you."

"A Weekend in Pacific Grove. We had a delightful weekend at Ship's Watch in Pacific Grove. The listing was accurate in describing the location, layout and amenities. The house itself was clean, well maintained and cozy. We especially enjoyed walking to the beach, Cannery Row and restaurants. Our three night stay was not long enough! I have recommended this property to relatives and friends, and we are planning to return.  Ship's Watch is a charming retreat."

My family and I just fell in love with the home and never wanted to leave! It's modern yet oldfashion all at the same time! Couldn't be happier with the home."

"Great home with convenient location! Wonderful home, beautifully furnished! We found everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was perfect- an easy walk to Lighthouse Ave and Lover's Point, about a mile to Safeway and Trader Joe's. Everything in the house was as described. We had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The only challenge for our family (one is disabled, two are elderly) was the "old house quirkiness." The house was very charming, but be aware of odd ceilings, uneven stairs, and somewhat awkward layout. The house was also a little cluttered- again, with lots of charm and very nice furnishings- but made access a little challenging. We managed just fine, though, and enjoyed a wonderful week! We would happily stay here again."

"Dog friendly and superbly furnished Victorian! We have always traveled with our two small dogs, but a family bereavement gathering made lodging was harder to find. This find was truly treasured by all seven of us. The home was built in 1893, but excellently remodeled with all modern and new conveniences, and many added items that made it feel like a "home", rather than a 'lodging". It is about a 1 mile walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but very close to beach, numerous excellent restaurants, and a local grocery store. The large dining table area and outside gathering spots were ideal for bringing our extended family together in a welcoming environment."
