“Excellent area but disappointed in unit and rental company.”

Pacific Grove is excellent. Lovers Point is amazing, but the unit we stayed in was a large let down. The biggest issue was ANTS. When we arrived on Thanksgiving Day the kitchen had dead ants in the sink and live ants crawling on the kitchen counters and walls and even coming out of the electrical outlets. Realizing that most likely nothing could be done on Thanksgiving afternoon, we waited until the next morning to call the rental company and let them know about the severity of the problem. They promised to have someone come and treat the rental that day while we were out. We made sure there was NEVER any food left out or water source available for the ants. It appeared no one came because the ant problem continued. There were even ants in the carpet.
On another note, it appears that several of the walls of the unit have either been patched or spot painted rather than painting the entire wall. This gave a speckled appearance as you would look down the hallway and stairwell. Not major, but when you are paying top dollar, you expect a top dollar rental.
Finally, since we were traveling on Thanksgiving Day, we wanted to be able to get into the unit prior to 3 PM. We paid an additional $200 to get an early check in of 1 PM. When we picked up the keys to the unit, they were left in a large mail box at the rental company and the rental company had been closed since the end of business on Tuesday. This meant our unit was actually ready to be occupied the entire day prior to our arrival rather than having them working extra to accommodate our request. It just seemed greedy on the company's part to charge this extra amount when it didn't require any additional work or effort on their part.
I booked this on line and had very little contact with the rental company. I had even sent them a couple emails requesting additional information about the unit and the possibility of an early check in but never received a response. Finally, I called and spoke to them in person. Not great customer service.
I cannot apologize enough for the communication issues and other problems you encountered during your stay. After further investigation, it appears that the person you called about the ant problem was the housekeeper assigned to this unit. She is no longer employed by us (because of incidents like this). We now have a 24-hour maintenance line so that issues can be addressed 24/7, as this should have been. (We are on call whether our office door is open or closed.)
I agree with you about the spotty paint job in the stairwell. The owners used the wrong sheen when they touched up the walls, and this is being addressed. And lastly, we offered you an early check in at 11am (not 1pm), and I personally drove to the office on Thanksgiving morning to put the keys in the box. (We do not put the keys out until the day of arrival, and in this case the condo was not ready to be occupied the previous day.)
We're glad that despite these issues you enjoyed your visit. Please come back again - we'd like the opportunity to turn a "2" into a "5."

Best place ever! My husband and I have stayed in hotels along Cannery Row in Monterey, in the Carmel Highlands hotels, but Lovers Point #6 is our new "go-to" place. There is so much to enjoy: the location, beautiful views from the condo, the openness and space (2 potties are important!), terrific kitchen, 3 TVs with DVR, wifi, reserved parking. So much better than a hotel suite and the best of the condos! We walked everywhere -- to tidepooling, to Cannery Row along the fabulous ocean walk and barking sea lions, to the Farmers Market on Monday late afternoon, across the street to a fabulous dinner at Beachhouse. This condo has it all and is beautifully decorated to boot. Note: if you stay, be sure to treat it very well -- it feels like a home and we want to enjoy it that way when we return!
One other thing to note, checking in and out was a breeze! If we had any questions the agent, Kyle Burritt, was available to help and quick to respond. I would recommend Monterey Rentals to anyone who is looking for a top notch professional vacation rental company.
