Great location for visiting the beach and Monterey and it's sites and the aquarium.
We took our two dogs and walked them in the nearby forest and the beach. Pacific Grove is a charming town. The room was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed meeting the owner's son who hosted us and was always ready with helpful directions
for nearby attractions.
Sarah and Evan's cottage was beautifully (and efficiently) set-up at the back of their property, amidst a wonderfully serene garden and with a view of the Pacific. The cottage was easy to get to, our hosts were responsive and very welcoming, and the cottage is a close drive to groceries, restaurants (do not miss Julia's) and a bakery. Max 10 minutes drive to the aquarium and Monterey's beachfront.
We'd stay again in a heartbeat.
Pacific Grove is a very charming town. It is in close proximity to Monterey, 17 mile drive and Carmel so there was lots to do and see. It was great having the passes to the aquarium - it is The Best aquariam ever. Evan & Sarah are lovely people and charming hosts. We so enjoyed the vinyl collection .. really fun placing those old records that were not scratched & sounded great. We really appreciated the letter Evan sent prior to our arrival that listed all of their favorite restaurants, hikes, things to do & see. Sadly Big Sur was closed due to road closures and a bridge being out. Our first day in the Bungalow it rained ... really rained. We so enjoyed just being cozy, listening to great music and reading. So nice to look out to the ocean. We walked from the Bungalow thru the wood to Spanish Bay and loved the Bagpiper who played at sunset ... we will be back!!
We loved our stay! The beds were super comfy and the bungalow is sweet. The owners are so welcoming and helpful, really going out if their way to make one welcome. Shame the ocean view isn't there all of the time but that's the nature of the location which we didn't appreciate until we got there, same with shops, bakery etc, we had to drive everywhere but that is the way in the states I guess. We would totally come back! Many thanks! The Gallions
