Description

Welcome to “Bungalow-by-the-Sea”! Sleeps 4

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

A meticulously restored Pacific Grove cottage offers peace, quiet and privacy in a tree-lined neighborhood that is within walking distance of parks, the Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, and downtown restaurants and attractions.

The 2-bedroom, 1-bath 850-square-foot home, built in 1923, has been remodeled to keep all of its historic charm while adding modern conveniences and a beautifully landscaped yard.

Among the many charming features are vintage shutters, plaster walls, an original Carmel stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and large windows that let in generous natural light. The coastal/eclectic interiors reflect the nearby beaches in soothing tones of white, driftwood and blue.

The home is just a quick half-mile walk from downtown Pacific Grove or to the bay and Recreation Trail; it’s also close to wooded trails throughout dog-friendly Washington Park and nearby 17 Mile Drive and Pebble Beach®. Other nearby attractions such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row are about 5-10 minutes away by car, and shopping and dining in Carmel-by-the-Sea are within 15 minutes.

The landscaped front yard features native grasses, rosemary and succulents with a backdrop of California live oaks. Inside, the living room features a unique artisan-made iron chandelier, hardwood plank flooring, and cozy seating around a Carmel stone fireplace with gas log that will become the focal point of family gathering, games and conversation.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, spa discount passes, 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 with everything you need for a day at the beach including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler.

Open access to the kitchen creates a great-room feeling throughout the living space. Limestone countertops, Edison bulb light fixtures, vintage-style white cabinetry and hardwood plank flooring, in addition to stainless steel appliances that include a Bosch self-cleaning gas range and convection oven, and a Bosch dishwasher that matches the cabinetry. Seating for two is available at a glass-topped bistro table. A table in the living room area can be expanded to accommodate dining for four along with four folding chairs.

Access to the back yard through the kitchen makes it simple to organize afternoon barbecues. A propane grill is available on the back patio in addition to comfortable seating, making this a perfect spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The front patio has additional outdoor seating.

The master bedroom features a king-sized bed with foam topper or two twin beds, with a second bedroom offering a queen bed, both with coastal décor in blues, grays and white. The second bedroom includes an HDTV. A newly remodeled hall bathroom features a tub/shower combo with custom tile, a tile vanity, and large mirror.

The home offers central heating and a stacked washer and gas dryer in a kitchen cabinet. A one-car detached garage is available as well as off-street parking for two cars in the driveway.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome upon owner approval. The house is located near dog-friendly Washington Park.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

We loved this cozy comfortable home. The bed was so comfortable and every appliance in the kitchen was so easy to work. There were different areas to sit in the yard so you could always find sun. The park at the end of the block made it easy to walk the dog. We will definitely stay here again.

We are so happy that you and your dog enjoyed the stay and that you found the house had everything you needed. See you on your next visit to the area.

All things considered the 3747 met all of our needs. We stayed for a month. We have a dog and the house/yard very dog friendly. George Washington Park a half block away an added bonus. Wonderful neighborhoods in which to take walks. The house itself was very cozy but not cramped for two people and a dog with good amenities. Some suggestions:
1. The cute stools with pillows pictured pretty much not functional as sitting devices, especially for senior citizens. We purchased a couple of chairs from second hand store at next to nothing for our stay then returned them.
2. The cabinet in the corner of the second bedroom looks cute but is unstable when opening the doors-we put shims under the front legs. If any young kids happen to start climbing on it, there could be a disaster.
3. Kitchen items were good, except no cheese grater and the pot holders didn't arrive until the first cleaning.
4. Hardly enough room for two to eat at the kitchen "cocktail table".
5. After the mid-stay cleaning it appeared that the dirty towels were taken but not replaced. As two people we were fine but if there were four, might be different.
6. Had to stand on a chair to reach items at top of kitchen cabinets (discovered the small folding step stool under sink in bathroom towards end of stay).
7. Perhaps we missed it, but we never did see written down anywhere the number for the phone land line.

Upon leaving we filled out and mailed the evaluation form provided.

The above are minor things. If we plan on another extended stay in the future we would book 3747 in a heartbeat and would recommend it to others.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the detailed list of what we can improve upon. We look forward to your next visit.
