1-bedroom cottage and studio carriage house in a private, lighted courtyard with fire pit, lounge set, pergola redwood table and double glider
- Cottage: Cal king, custom retro kitchen, living room, bathroom
- Cottage 2: Carriage house with queen, games room, bathroom

Great for couples or families to enjoy together time and private space. 15-min walk to aquarium, dining, shops, beach. Dogs (2 small or 1 large, well-behaved and crated).

Transient Use License 0252.

10 minutes to everything: Walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, to Lovers Point beach, to downtown Pacific Grove, to Cannery Row for amusements, shopping and great dining. Drive to the 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach and Carmel. Day trip to wine tasting, Big Sur and California's famous Highway 1.

This unique home is perfectly suited for two couples or a family that wants privacy but also to be in a cozy spot together. Meet in the main cottage kitchen to share a meal and relax, or retreat to your private spaces for quiet time.

Dream of marine mammals on a solid wood, four poster Cal king bed with foam mattress. There's a vintage wardrobe with drawers and hanging space for your clothing. There's also a writing desk where you can be inspired by the likes of Steinbeck and Twain. There's also a white, vintage-look log stove to keep you extra toasty at night.

The kitchen is newly redone in vintage style charm: new 4-burner stove + oven (apartment-size), new dishwasher, refrigerator and lots of new butcher block countertop space for prep. We have a coffee maker that also boils water, toaster and lots of pots and pans for cooking.

There's a love seat and pub chair with foot stool to relax in around the flat screen TV. The vintage chest has extra blankets and cushions for your comfort. The gas heater here keeps the main cottage toasty. You will hear ticking and the fan, as it comes on to circulate air throughout.

(The loveseat can be set up as a pull-out with linens for an extra $25.)

The bathroom has a small tub with shower and new, modern fixtures with vintage charm.

There's a new high-efficiency washer and gas dryer.

The wrought iron queen size bed is ready for you to relax in. There's a flat-screen TV and desk. The gas heater here keeps the main cottage toasty. You will hear ticking and the fan, as it comes on to circulate air throughout.

We have a mini-pool table with foos ball and slide hockey table-tops. There are loads of games, books, and other fun things to do on the shelves of the games room.

This bathroom features the original claw foot bathtub. Watch your step, as it's a big on to get in. There's a brand new vintage faucet as well as modern fixtures throughout.

One of the best features of our PG home is the large courtyard that lies between the two cottages. We have a lounge set and gas fire pit. We also have a pergola with custom redwood dining table and a double-glider.

At the front of the main cottage there's a 5-burner gas grill and another patio table and two chairs for relaxing.

The patio furniture has removable covers that you can take off and replace when you leave or if it rains.

The 100-year-old Coast Live Oak tree has a swing in it that the kids love to play on. And we have our signature, three majestic Canary date palm trees. The yard is fully fenced, but please keep your pet inside and crated when you're not at home, as the city issues noise citations for barking dogs.

We allow a well-behaved and crated dog with prior approval and our pet fee is $50 per week and $150 per month. Two small dogs are okay with a pet fee for each. That can be set up as a special offer or separately.

We have had cats visit, but I like to speak with cat owners first about their temperament.

If you use Instant Book, we can connect afterwards about special arrangements for your pet.

I will provide you with a code to the key pads on both cottage doors.

I am available by text, call or email at any time to answer questions, be a guide or offer suggestions. Our local caretaker, Frank, is also available within 5 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, if needed.

The Retreat area of Pacific Grove is a community of quaint cottages that are steps from the ocean, steps to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and minutes away by car from Pebble Beach, the world famous Concours d'Elegance, a US Open golf course, Carmel by the Sea, the 17-Mile Drive and just a half-hour drive to Big Sur.

The walkability score of this neighborhood is high! Sights, restaurants and shopping are within 10-15 minutes walking distance: including the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, downtown Pacific Grove, and Lovers Point beach.

Suitable for quiet retreat: Pacific Grove's "Retreat" area is known for it's quaint cottages and cozy streets.

Even though our home has a secluded, treed courtyard, it is still within ear-shot of neighbors. So please enjoy your outdoor time quietly and observe strict hush-hush hours after 8pm during the week and 10pm on weekends.

I tweet and Insta post from the handle @tripmogul, sharing what's new and exciting on the Truckee, LakeTahoe, PacificGrove, Monterey and Sausalito hashtags. We love connecting with our guests, helping them with their plans and then hearing how their stays were.

Looking forward to sharing our place with you!
