Perfect for a romantic getaway, this adorable sunny-yellow Pacific Grove bungalow could qualify as a love nest, a writer’s retreat or innovator’s creativity haven.
Fall in love all over again with your significant other or give yourself the gift of reading, writing, relaxing and exploring the amazing things to do and see on the Monterey Peninsula. At 502 square feet, this 1-bedroom house is small, but thanks to an intelligent, open design and lots of light, it feels surprisingly spacious.
The tasteful décor provides an environment to relax and restore and then explore the bounty of the spectacular coastline, walk and enjoy the leisurely pace of Pacific Grove, or take a short car ride to renowned sites in Carmel or Monterey and further down the coast, knowing you can return to your cozy bungalow to share a glass of wine while reliving your day and planning the next day's adventures.
The owners of the bungalow intentionally created this sanctuary as a total escape from the hustle and bustle of their fast-paced Silicon Valley lives. However, for those who wish to stay connected, an internet connection is provided. If you choose, bring your ipod to listen to your personal play list utilizing the music docking system provided. There is a 27" TV for watching DVDs only as it is not hooked-up to any TV reception.
Enter your Shangri-La through a small fenced-in open-air porch that includes two sunflower-yellow wicker chairs where you can relax and enjoy coffee in the morning or a before-dinner aperitif.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in 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 also have provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush bathrobes and luxury towels.
Open the front door and enter into a cheerful open area that includes the living, dining and kitchen. A row of skylights extends the length of the home flooding the space with light throughout the day. A bank of high windows allow even more light into the space, which is painted cream with white trim and has dark wood floors.
Living room furnishings include a black leather sofa, an ottoman, 2 upholstered armchairs, a wooden screen inset with stained glass, an occasional table and a patterned area rug.
A short wall with an arched window pass-through provides a sense of separation between the living room and a gleaming updated contemporary kitchen that would be the pride of any home. With its granite counter tops, stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator, black gas range and white cabinetry, it will make preparing and serving gourmet meals a treat. Dine in an adjacent area at a bistro table with a mosaic top and chairs for 2. Beautiful dishes, glassware and table accessories allow for lovely candlelight dinners.
If you want some quiet time to yourself, a light-filled library nook features a contemporary leather reading chair, an end table and built-in shelving containing books and games.
The sophisticated bedroom contains a comfortable queen bed with luxury bedding including a beige coverlet, rust accents and bedside tables with lamps. The spacious closet contains a 4-drawer cabinet.
The contemporary bathroom has an oval mirror, stone tile floors, a clear-glass shower and plush towels and spa amenities.
The bungalow can accommodate 2 adults. On-street parking is available.
Bring your significant other or your significant self and rediscover the simpler pleasures of life in this idyllic vacation bungalow sanctuary near the sea.

Left on 10/01/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 1, 2013Stayed Sep 2013
Wonderful house. Fenced front porch is sunny in the afternoon. Beautiful rooms. Very comfortable furniture and bed. One block from downtown Pacific Grove with it's wonderful restaurants and shops. I was able to get off the grid and relax. Although there is no TV, wireless is available. Monterey Bay aquarium and Cannery Row is a ten minute walk. I highly recommend this house.
