A perfect position for our Monterey golf trip - all the great courses a very short drive away. The house is exactly as it looks and is described on Air BnB, so we were more than happy. There's a fantastic fish restaurant a one minute's walk away, and plenty of places for classic American breakfasts. Highly recommended.

This was my second stay here because I loved it so much the first time. The place is clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect for getting to town or the beach. Literally just a block away to both. Ben and Heather are quick to respond to any questions. The place is perfect for a little getaway with my kiddo.

We had a wonderful time here! The place was exactly as described and pictured. Very clean and well supplied. The location was awesome and easily walkable to the downtown area and water (this includes walkable for my 76-year old grandmother who was with us). We also have a toddler and this was by far the most small child-friendly place we've stayed. They even had child plates and utensils, and several toys at the house. In fact, I think my son's favorite part of our whole vacation was playing with someone else's toy cars and blocks! We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Nicely sized bungalow in a great location. Easy walk to activities and restaurants in Pacific Grove. The house easily fit my family of four and blends original details like built-ins with a modern renovation of the kitchen and bath. It's tidy, well organized and stocked with extras like beach towels, a kid-friendly collection of books and toys, and the guest passes to the aquarium were a great bonus. Check-in/out was a breeze and Ben was quick to be in touch. Highly recommend this as home base for a Monterey vacation!

A perfect spot to enjoy this beautiful region. The apartment is spacious, light, clean and modern. It was an ideal spot to stay with our 11 month old daughter. Ben and Heather have kindly left behind toys for small children. We adored Pacific Grove and the fact that the apartment was so close to the beach. Heather and Ben were very easy to get hold of during our stay and they kindly gave advice on places to visit etc. The aquarium passes are brilliant, saving us $100! We cannot recommend this airbnb highly enough. Thanks Ben and Heather!
