Description

Welcome to Lovers Point Beach Retreat! Sleeps up to 4 Guests including infants and children.

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!

Impressive views of the Monterey Bay and Lovers Point can be found from this second-story condominium in Pacific Grove, just steps away from the beach and within minutes of historic sites along the coastal recreation trail.

The updated coastal-themed residence is right across the street from Lovers Point Park and the Beach House Restaurant, and is also just a few minutes’ walk to downtown Pacific Grove’s bistros, shops and movie theater. It’s also a 10-minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, or going the other way, to gorgeous Asilomar and the Point Pinos lighthouse. It’s also a 10-minute drive to the charming village of Carmel-by-the-Sea or to fine dining and golf in Pebble Beach, or about a half hour to Big Sur.

The two-story condo is perfect for a small family or two couples looking for a beach getaway in a sophisticated setting. The recently remodeled space features designer touches such as accents made from coral and seashells, with a hardwood entryway and plush carpet in the living room and bedrooms. The décor’s blue, sand and driftwood tones complement the ocean view that can be seen from the living room and downstairs from the master bedroom.

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 upper floor contains the living room, dining room, kitchen and half-bath, all embellished with original artwork that reflects the ocean theme. The living room features comfortable upholstered seating surrounding an electric fireplace and a 50-inch HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player, providing a perfect spot for conversation or hanging out. Sliding glass doors allow entry to a balcony, just the spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at sunset, or to watch whales or kayakers in the bay. At night, guests will be mesmerized by the sounds of the sea and the city lights.

The dining area seats four around a glass-topped table, and is conveniently located next to the fully equipped gourmet kitchen, which features a deep sink and updated appliances in brushed stainless steel that includes a gas range.

Downstairs, guests will find the master bedroom outfitted with a beautifully carved wooden sleigh bed with a queen mattress. Blinds allow a look at the view but can also be closed for privacy, and a large mirrored closet offers plenty of room to stow gear.

The second bedroom contains two twin beds that can be converted to a king as needed. The closet contains a stacked washer and dryer. This bedroom has an HDTV as well.

The bedrooms share a bathroom that features dual sinks, granite countertops, tiled tub/shower combo and tile floors, as well as ample storage space for toiletries.

Space for parking one vehicle is available in the complex’s covered carport, and parking for one car is available on the street. Guests will also have access to the complex’s deck at the rear of the building. Due to HOA policies, there are no grills or pets allowed.

"Absolutely fabulous!  We have stayed in many properties in the Pacific Grove/Monterey area and this one is the best. The condo is clean, bright and beautifully furnished with everything we could imagine needing. The view from the deck was so wonderful that we didn't want to go anywhere! It is just a short walk to wonderful restaurants and the path around the shoreline. We had one minor problem with the thermostat but they responded immediately and we had no other issues at all. We appreciated the off-street parking. It might not be a good choice for someone who has difficulty going up and down stairs as the entry is on the 2nd floor and the bedrooms are downstairs. We, however, loved it and can't wait to go back."

"Great view! Tiny condo! We selected this lovely spot for our "girls" week getaway. The view and location didn't disappoint at all. The living room featured floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows to enjoy the lovely view. The bedrooms were all downstairs leaving the living area upstairs giving the best view possible. The furnishings in the living room were comfy and stylish.

The kitchen was a 1-cook kitchen, so tiny that you can't open the refrigerator and the dishwasher at the same time. But, all of the appliances are nice and operable. The wine and cheese waiting for us was delish!

The bedrooms were roomy, and the single full bathroom had two sinks, which helped. Our only complaint is that the beds were not very comfortable (hard but bouncy). We would have appreciated a higher quality mattress for the daily rate we paid. Also, the photos clearly display a table on the balcony, but it was missing, so there was no place to place your coffee cup or wine glass should you desire to enjoy the deck. (This also doesn't fit three people).

Both a drip coffee maker and a Keurig were provided (although not advertised, so I didn't bring any coffee pods, which would have been helpful.)

The place was very clean overall, but the dining room chair seats and couch could stand a thorough shampoo.

The Red House restaurant is great for breakfast; and Peppers is a super Mexican restaurant full of locals. These are both very close, and walkable. If you happen to stay here on a Monday, be sure to go to the afternoon farmer's market a couple blocks away at the park.

I would recommend this place to a couple, or maybe a couple with one small child."

"Great views - Great location!  Very nice condo with a great ocean view. We enjoyed watching seals from the condo balcony. We appreciated the cheese & wine, wine tasting passes, binoculars and bath robes left by management. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The location is great--Monterey Bay aquarium is a 1 mile walk and Lover's Point park is across the street. Pebble Beach & Carmel were only a 10-minute drive away. The only downside was traffic noise, but the tradeoff was the convenience of having a nice beach and restaurant right across the street. Highly recommend!"

"Beautiful View!  We had a great stay at Lover's Point. The view is magnificent. The condo is clean, comfortable, well appointed and welcoming. The property is secure and gated. We rested well and were happy to be there. The area is vibrant with community. The siteseeing in the neighborhood alone is entertainment enough however, Big Sur is a short drive. We walked to dine, we walked to shop. Pacific Grove is a sweet coastal town. We plan to return to Lover's Point Beach Retreat."

"Perfect location. Beautifully appointed.  Our experience at 3709 Lover's Point was wonderful. Arrived very late on first night to find cheese,crackers and wine- great touch. The condo is well stocked with everything a family could need for a vacation in Monterey and Pacidic Grove. Walk to Aquarium, cannery row and along the pacific grove coastal trail were easy and beautiful. Harbor seals and much more wildlife abundant for our viewing pleasure. Very quiet! Truly appreciate the good neighbor policy. We will be back!!"

"Absolutely perfect! You could not rent a more lovely place than Lovers Point Retreat. The view is amazing. The condo was beautifully furnished. The kitchen had everything you could need. The neighborhood is charming with everything you could need within walking distance. As if all of that is not enough the management is so thoughtful and attentive. The moment we walked in and found "candles" flickering, and wine and cheese waiting for us we immediately knew we had made the right choice of where to stay. I would not be surprised if this lovely place gets booked solid!"
