Spaciousness, quiet, beautiful views, and best of all, an outstanding location. This home seems ideal for 3 couples or a family, but for this long weekend it was just my husband and me so we had the luxury of plenty of space. We cooked in the lovely gourmet kitchen, read Sunday papers as we sat and drank coffee at the granite island. Afternoons, we lounged in the master bedroom to enjoy the gorgeous sea views. At night we curled up and watched a movie. We had a bit or work to do as well so we set up our computers in the office area at the top of the stairs -- again, with a lovely view. The park across the street adds to feeling of privacy, and we were minutes from the beach trail -- so beautiful to take in the sunrise each morning or to walk to John Denver Memorial or Lighthouse in evening. We ate at Peppers & Il Vecchio & Crema all in Pacific Grove -- just 5 minute drive from house. Also recommend morning pastries from Pavel's on Forest -- huge deliciousness. We loved this house and this location. Highly recommend.
The photos you see on the listing match precisely what awaited us! Home was everything advertised and much more! Great location, quiet neighborhood, excellent beach walks and spectacular ocean views! This home is well equipped in so many ways! Everything is in beautiful shape. Enjoyed our morning coffee and ocean view from the master bedroom every morning. (Did I mention the views are amazing)?? The decor is lovely and furniture quite comfortable. There are plenty of tools for cooking, serving, eating and entertaining in the gourmet kitchen and we definitely enjoyed the outdoor grill, fire pit and hot tub. This was truly home away from home for an entire week. We look forward to renting this home again in the near future and have recommended to friends. It was a pleasure to rent from you.
We just got back from a lovely trip to Pacific Grove. Otter's Rest was a great house for our multi-generational family. The bedrooms upstairs are huge, plenty of room to spread out. We used the hot tub, BBQ, and fire pit, all while listening to the crashing waves. We walked down to the beach often (and all around town). It's such a wonderful town for strolling. The kids played in the park across the street. It is such a quiet, peaceful area. We loved the heated floors downstairs. So cozy! One rainy afternoon, we lit the fireplace and snuggled up on the couches. We liked the pet coverings on the couches. We didn't have pets with us, but nice to know they can wash the coverings in between visits. The kitchen was very well-appointed. We have stayed at many vacation rentals and this kitchen had just about everything. We will be back!
Clean and well stocked. Kitchen was wonderful. The views fantastic! Easy walk to the ocean. Hot tub was great.

What a beautiful home to spend time in while exploring Pacific Grove and the Monterey Peninsula! Three senior couples couldn't have been more pleased. The home is lovely and kept clean, including windows, by the home manager, Julia. The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals to enjoy in the lovely dining room. You can walk to the shore and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific. Walk as far as you wish. One unique attraction, very close to the home, is the Point Pinos Lighthouse which dates from 1855. It is a delightful, historic lighthouse. The village, or old downtown Pacific Grove is also worth a visit. You can't go wrong with staying here. We also enjoyed a drive to Carmel and Carmel Valley, the Aquarium and Monterey State Historic Park.
