Sleeps 11 adults & 3 children Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home! One of Pacific Grove’s most celebrated historic homes - just a short walk from downtown, the beach, and the monarch butterfly groves - allows you to host your large family gatherings in the gracious style of bygone eras. The 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home with distant ocean views has been restored and updated, keeping its beautiful Victorian detailing while also adding modern conveniences. Built in 1880, it was the home of Pacific Grove’s first doctor, and is the recipient of a Heritage House Award. Four bedrooms have en suite baths. High ceilings with crown moldings, vintage fixtures, and a secret wine cellar in the kitchen are just a few of the vintage delights to be found in the 2,900-square-foot residence. The décor is a mixture of antique and contemporary style, enhanced by original artwork and hardwood floors throughout. The pet-friendly home is within a few blocks of charming downtown Pacific Grove and its galleries, shops and restaurants, and is also an easy walk to the beach and Monterey Bay Recreation Trail. Other nearby attractions include Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, 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 with everything you need for a day at the beach including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler. The bright blue Victorian house is set off by a white picket fence and ornamental fruit trees, “Magic Carpet” succulents, camellias and wisteria. Inside, the first floor features a living room with a bay window that looks out on the street, and a gas fireplace surrounded by cozy contemporary-style sofas and upholstered chairs, the perfect place for conversation, reading, or watching the large HDTV above the fireplace. Also on this floor are a half-bath and a small bedroom with a queen-size Murphy bed, in addition to the dining room, kitchen, laundry room and the front master bedroom suite. The dining room includes seating for 10 and is located next to the large fully-equipped kitchen with a walk-in pantry, brick veneer walls and modern appliances, including an antique-look gas stove and an island made from a vintage buffet. Leaded glass windows over the double sink offer a glimpse of the garden outside. French doors on the other side of the dining room open onto the patio, where a gourmet gas grill and patio seating make this an ideal place for backyard barbecues and enjoying cocktails in the evening. The front master bedroom suite features ocean views in the distance, as well as a king bed and a twin sleeper sofa, and a gas fireplace with vintage oak surround and mantle. A seating area and HDTV make it a comfortable space for resting and relaxing. The large en suite bath includes a walk-in closet, antique vanity with two sinks, and shower with dual shower heads. The rear master bedroom also has a king bed, twin sleeper sofa, TV and spacious en suite bath with dual vanities and walk in closet. At the top of the stairs, a kid’s space with a full-size daybed and HDTV is perfect for hanging out and enjoying ocean views through the window. Upstairs, the fourth and fifth bedrooms each feature king beds that converts to two twins, HDTVs, and en suite baths. Upstairs bedrooms are also accessible through a private second exterior staircase at the rear of the house. **All vehicles must be parked directly in front of the home or on Lighthouse Ave. Three car maximum - carpooling recommen **There is an additional fee for pets** Pacific Grove Transient Use License #380 See also Rates Notes for addit Pets: Dogs Additional amenities: Alum Foil, Plastic Wrap/Baggies, Art Galleries Nearby, Asilomar State Park Nearby, B-Bug Mattress/Pillow Protectors, Basic Pantry Items (Sugar/S&P), Beach Gear/Towels/Cooler/Chairs, Carmel Sunset Center (Venue), Catering or Chef Available, Coffee & Tea Supplies - 1st Day, Coffee Maker, Complimentary Hors d'Oeuvres/Bev, Concierge Service, Cookie, Cake & Muffin Tins, Cookware (Pots/Pans/Baking), Daily Cleaning (additional cost), Decorative Serving Pieces, Forest Theater (Outdoor), Full Kitchen, Garage for 1 car, Golf Course, Hand Mixer, Information: Bicycle Rental, Information: Golf Course, Information: Kayak Rental, Information: Whale Watching, Internet: High Speed WiFi, Iron and Ironing Board, Local Information/Brochures, MY Museum (for Children), Major Shopping Mall, Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway, Mini Food Processor, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey Museum of Art, Movie Theatres, Movie/Video LibrMore
