Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present “Surf’s Up”! Sleeps 6

Park your car, and walk everywhere from this pet and family-friendly cottage — where you can hear the cry of seagulls during the day and the murmur of waves at night — just a few minutes' walk away from spectacular Lovers Point beach, and restaurants and shopping in downtown Pacific Grove.

The 3-bedroom, 2-bath newly remodeled historic home, known as the C.A. McCoy House and built originally in 1887, features an open floor plan with modern amenities. Tall ceilings and windows that let in plenty of natural light give this residence a spacious ambiance, with easy-care flooring that is perfect for pet owners.

Besides being just steps from the beach, the 1100 square-foot home also offers easy access to attractions such as Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links, Point Pinos Lighthouse and Asilomar State Beach, and to the Monterey Peninsula Recreation Trail, perfect for walking, running or cycling.

The house is also in the heart of Pacific Grove’s city park network, and is close to Jewell Park, Caterpillar Park and Caledonia Park, which includes a tots’ play area, climbing equipment for older children and picnic tables. A little further south is George Washington Park, a forested area with nature and hiking trails. Also nearby is the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, offering displays and information on plants, animals and sea life of the region.

It’s also only a few minutes by car to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and historic Cannery Row. Downtown Monterey, Carmel and golfing in Pebble Beach are a 10-minute drive away, and other attractions within a half hour’s drive are the natural wonders of Big Sur and wine tasting and dining in Carmel Valley Village.

We had a great stay here. The house was very clean and cozy. Check in was very easy since the door locks used electronic codes instead of keys. Perfect location, super close to a nice beach with tide pools and a number of places to eat. Also easy access to the bike path- just a mile to the aquarium! We appreciated the Hospitality app that was provided and used it for lots of suggestions especially with food.
Overall a great experience. My kids didn't want to leave.

The Moment We Walked Into the House We Were Impressed!

by Colorado Springs, CO

5 of 5

From the moment we walked in to the house we were impressed. Soft music was playing and we were welcomed with a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers! The house was sunny and bright, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. Comfy beds and spacious showers were a plus! The house is a short walk to the beach at Lover’s Point. We will definitely return.

The Stay Was Great

by Stockton, CA

5 of 5

The stay was great...the communication with the property manager was great...the only surprise was an added charge that was disclosed at the end of the renting process. Once I was aware of it I could have cancelled but chose to stay with that property because of location. I will be more attentive next time. But I would give the stay itself 5 stars.

Perfectly situated for a Monterrey Peninsula Vacation

by Alpine TX

5 of 5

Overall Comment

The house is in an ideal location in Pacific Grove: 1 block from Lover's Point and the oceanside walking trail, 2 blocks from downtown, 5 minutes from the weekly farmer's market, and a very short drive to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, 17-Mile Drive, Trader Joe's, etc. You'd be hard-pressed to find anything more perfectly situated.

The house, originally built circa1880, has been very nicely updated, with all mod cons, and has a clean, modern feel. It's well-stocked with plenty of bath soaps, trash bags, laundry soap, TP, etc. - clearly someone is thinking things through.

However, the house is small and comfortably accommodates no more than four adults (or two adults and three children). We were five adults, and at times it felt cramped. The allotted parking space is very, very tight - even a compact car would be a squeeze. And the kitchen isn't stocked for gourmet cooking, so plan to bring your own if you want to do a lot of cooking.

The house had several minor issues, which I addressed with the management company: not quite clean, broken refrigerator parts, nightly invasions of foraging ants, and the refrigerator/freezer failed to cool after the power failed on NYEve. To be fair, however, I declined an immediate response to any of these issues - it was Christmastime, after all, and none of these had easy fixes. On the whole, I think Sanctuary does a good job of managing this property.

The best home away from home

by Castle Hayne NC

5 of 5

Overall Comment

Surfs Up was exactly as photographed. The home was immaculately clean, cozy and comfortable. The beds were awesome and every amenity was covered. The bathrobes were so great that we drove to Carmel to visit Amie in hopes to buy some to take home. That was the only “miss”, that they don’t sell them. We couldn’t have found a nicer, more conveniently located, wonderful home to spend our week near Monterey.

Beautiful Cottage by the Sea

Wonderful! Surf’s Up was the perfect cottage for the 3 of us! It was very clean and beautifully decorated. Wine and cheese upon arriving and white bathrobes for chilly nights. I highly recommend as it is close to the beach and trails along the sea. We will definitely stay at Surf’s Up again!

Great location and very quiet!

by Austin TX

5 of 5

Overall Comment

This is a perfect location to walk to the fantastic restaurants as well as to Lover’s Point. It’s a few block walk for both. We were surprised how easy it was to get a parking spot in front of the house. Our SUV though was too difficult to park in the driveway. Nicely decorated and Sanctuary Vacation provides excellent bedding and especially white very fluffy towels! My only recommendation for the owner would be to invest in better cookware and a perhaps a better kitchen table (it’s so flimsy and tiny) and better chairs for the dining table (again they’re flimsy and not comfortable to enjoy a nice meal). The bathtub was fine for us but I can see some people (especially small children or individuals with mobility challenges) having trouble stepping over the high edge of the tub .Otherwise the home is nicely decorated and we enjoyed our stay.

Pros: Complimentary cheese & crackers and a bottle of local wine, keypad entry to both doors, dedicated off street parking, fluffy towels, laundry, large TV with Roku, and *location* (quiet neighborhood just steps from the water).

Cons: Very few if any? If pressed I'd maybe say that there could be more comfortable seating but honestly the rental is lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Wonderful home near beach and restaurants

by Chicago IL

Overall Comment

Wonderful location in a quiet side street about a 3 min walk to the ocean. The area of Lovers Point is romantic with a lot of small restaurants and shops. The unit itself is fairly big with a lot of hangers - strange to mention I know but a lot of places don’t have enough! The kitchen supplies were just enough for the 2 of us. Washer and dryer worked fine. Quick responses and super easy in and out. Beautiful unit with high ceilings and felt upgraded.

We loved our stay in Pacific Grove. The only thing I would change about the house was the shower. Loved the antique claw tub shower, but was hard to get into and my mother had to use a step stool. Overall, it was an awesome house and vacation.

Cozy Cottage

by Rocklin CA

5 of 5

Overall Comment

This property is 1 block from lover’s point. Neighborhood road that isn’t busy (one-way). Parking on the road is hard to find unless it’s after 8am but before 3pm. The parking spot included with house is small my Audi Q7 was a tight squeeze. It’s a cozy small old cottage from canning days; it was a cool trip back in time to see how the house was once separated. Easy walk to Aquarium, Lover’s Point, Downtown restaurants, Monarch Sanctuary, coastal walks were amazing. We had three deer that showed up every night across the street on neighbors property.
The old shower and plastic curtains took some getting used to; not sure we can do that part again. It’s all about location and this house has it!!!

Lovely New Rental

This house is newly renovated, very clean and in a perfect location to experience Pacific Grove at its fullest. My only issues were that I had rented a large car that was difficult to park both on the street and in the driveway. Other than that and the fact that there were no hand towels, wash clothes or bath mats in the house the rental was perfect.

Thanks for your review of your recent stay at Surf's Up. We are please you enjoyed the home and the great location but we do apologize for the missed bath linens. Parking is difficult for larger vehicles in Pacific Grove with smaller driveways but otherwise thrilled that you enjoyed the home and the area.
