Pacific Grove, California
Additional Location Information
Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the main entrance to 17-Mile Drive. Within this charming city, known for its old-fashioned, friendly downtown and colorful historic Victorian homes, are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allow you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.
Visit the Museum of Natural History, Point Pinos Light-house, tour Asilomar State Park, or enjoy the Sunset anywhere between Lovers Point Park and Asilomar Beach. Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town U.S.A. since every October the Monarchs migrate to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary where they winter until February. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is the top rated municipal golf in the state with over 70,000 rounds played annually. It is referred to as poor man's Pebble Beach due to its proximity and resemblance of Pebble Beach courses.
Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Pacific Grove. The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp where several hundreds assembled to worship amidst rough tents. Tour brochures are available at the Chamber.
Pacific Grove's Past
The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp, where several hundred people assembled to worship amidst rough tents. In time, the fragrant pines and fresh sea air brought others to the Pacific Grove Retreat to rest and meditate. The first camp meeting of the Pacific Coast branch of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle was held here in June 1879. Fashioned after the Methodist Sunday school teachers' training camp established in 1874 at Lake Chautauqua, N.Y., this location became part of a nation-wide educational/cultural network.
In November 1879, after the summer campers returned home, Robert Louis Stevenson wandered into the deserted campgrounds: I have never been in any place so dreamlike. Indeed, it was not so much like a deserted town as like a scene upon the stage by daylight, and with no one on the boards -- from "The Old Pacific Capitol"
By 1889, the resort was incorporated, becoming the City of Pacific Grove. The last P.G. Chautauqua was held in August 1926.
The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will just have to come back again and again!

What Past Guests Are Saying
The get-together was fun; a good time was had by all.
This house and location turned out to be perfect for 3 couples getting together to catch up and spend some quality time together. The house was comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated, roomy, and it had great views of the bay. From either the floor to ceiling picture windows or the deck; we leisurely started our days checking the bay for marine life sightings (we saw seals, otters, and dolphins); we enjoyed watching the fishermen, scuba divers, joggers, walkers, bicyclist, and classic cars driving the coastal route; and at night (if the fog was not thick) we enjoyed seeing the lights across the bay. You can fill your day checking out the many things to do that are within easy access from the house, taking walks (the coastal walking path is just across from the house), or just relaxing around the house. The house offers many areas to hang out together (the deck facing the bay, the roomy living room, the dining room, or the atrium like deck in the center of the house) The kitchen layout was on the smallish side making it tight to have more than 2 people cooking at a time, but we still were able to prepare some nice meals. The house has many amenities. The "accidents happen honor box", however, did create a little unease that we may break a glass or dish or soil the linens or furniture that would require us to put money in the box to pay for an accident. We thought that was a little odd, but maybe that's why they can afford to have nice things in the rental. But the unease did not dominate our weekend, as we had a great time.
The Owners have thought of everything
Everything you could ask for in a vacation rental. Our stay was truly excellent. The house was well appointed and the view of the Ocean was great. We enjoyed long walks and beautiful weather.
The house is centrally located and close to everything. The indoor/outdoor dining are was much appreciated. Thank you for an excellent stay.
Incredible beach house with million dollar view over Monterey Ba
Our family rented this beach house and the pictures don't do it justice. We walked in and were amazed by the gorgeously decorated beach house with tons of glass and incredible views across the Bay. In fact, we hardly left the premises but stayed relaxing and enjoying this beautiful space. It was the best beach vacation ever. The shoreline trail was just across the road and we had such wonderful walks in the most lovely spot on earth. My daughter had car troubles at the end and the hosts were so helpful in solving her problems. We would recommend this house to anyone for a perfect beach vacation. We hope to come again.
Wonderful Pacific Grove Location
Our long weekend here could not have been any better - perfect spot to see the ice plant in full bloom while taking long walks along the beach trail right across the street. The views of the bay are simply amazing. Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf are just a few miles away. Even though you are near several outstanding restaurants, it was nice to have a fully equipped kitchen to prepare some meals in and enjoy the fantastic view. We are looking forward for the opportunity to return to Siren Song in the future.
We had a wonderful time with the family at this beautiful house. The owners put a lot of thought and organization into making sure guests are comfortable. The views are breathtaking from the patio and the rooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, the beds were comfortable, the TV was large and even had Netflix to use, passes to the aquarium, fireplace, location, and more! We would definitely stay again as this place now has lasting memories of such a good time spent with family. Thank you Gayle!
Perfect location, Perfect house
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at your beautiful home in Pacific Grove. Sirensong was everything you said and much more! The views were amazing, the house itself was perfect! I appreciated all the special little touches around the house, such as the artwork, the plush towels, very comfy beds and the fireplace that added a very nice toasty warm touch to the end of a beautiful day. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, we loved the BBQ, the outside eating area was awesome and all the sliding glass doors were great as we just opened them all up and really felt the wonderful ocean breeze. I will definitely be back soon! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
Breathing and awesome
This was our second trip to "Siren Song" and we were so happy to be back! The location is simply put just the best. And the owners have thought of every little detail to make the stay enjoyable and comfortable. We can't wait to return for our third trip! Thank you!!
wonderful oceanfront house, Siren Song, Pacific Grove
We (3 couples) just spent Thanksgiving at Siren Song. The house has full ocean views, a giant TV and is decorated in an attractive beach style. The layout of the house is a bit funky, but remains comfortable for 6.
We hope to return are confident others will enjoy the house.
home away from home
What a find -- we felt right at home the minute we walked in - it's an immaculate home right on the bay. We had a fabulous time, everything we needed was taken care of, we didn't have to do anything but enjoy ourselves, and we did. We lucked out with the weather which made it even better ... thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
My dream came through with this house
Four years ago, I spotted this house and have always dreamed that one day I would stay there. As I was working at the time, my schedules and the rentals for the house did not coincide. Now that I am retire, I spent 4 wonderful nights in the most beautiful view, five star amenities, located in Pacific Grove which is much more serene than Cannary Row and Carmel. The house should be photographed in architectual Digest as the most beautifully furnished yet very comfortable/clean beach house in Pacific Grove or anywhere else.
Very clean and relaxing. Great views!
Beautiful, impeccably maintained home with a great ocean view. Everything from beach chairs and bath robes to restaurant recommendations was provided. This is a great place to stay.
We loved our stay in this beautiful Pacific Grove home. The views of the ocean are amazing, from so many spots of the house. The house is well stocked and very comfortable. This was our second stay at this home and the return visit did not disappoint. We can't wait to have the opportunity to return to this place. The location is great - close to the aquarium, beautiful walk along the ocean, close to downtown pacific grove. We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
Fair Oaks, Ca
The views are out of this world and the home was great too! Three couples stayed here and plenty of room! The husbands forgot a house key and Gayle bless her let them in! Coffee on the front deck each morning or if to cold on the table was a perfect way to start each day in PC! Will be back!
