Monterey Bay Vacation Rental – Hilltop Haven – Seaside

Neighborhood House with Panoramic Ocean Views


1160 sq. ft. | 3 Bedroom | 2 Bath | Sleeps 6 (2Q, 2T, 1A)
Max. Occupancy 8

This 3-bedroom, 2-bath home in a residential area of upper Seaside is perfect for a longer stay. The main living areas – with panoramic ocean views – are on the upper level, along with the master bedroom and a full bath. Downstairs, two guestrooms (one Queen and one twin trundle) share a second bath (also with a tub/shower).


This home features multiple areas for enjoying the outdoors. A small deck off the living room has a gas barbecue, and on sunny days the ocean view balcony off the master bedroom will be your favorite hangout… unless you’re in the yard, serving wine and cheese on oak wine barrels under a vine-covered arbor… or warming yourself around the fire pit (Duraflame logs only) after the sun goes down.

The living room has bamboo floors, a large TV, and a gas log fireplace. The kitchen has tile countertops, a gas range, a side-by-side refrigerator and a breakfast bar (there’s also a glass-topped dining table with seating for four). But in this location, cooking is optional: take your pick from fast food, delis, diners, and a gamut of international cuisines: Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, German, Italian, and more.

Single car garage. Sleeps 6 in beds: 2 Queens and one twin trundle (plus air mattress for extra guests).

Park Place in Pacific Grove - Walk To Beach Home

3295 sq. ft. | 4 Bedroom | 3 ½ Bath | Sleeps 8 (1K, 2Q, 2T) Max. Occupancy 9


Location, location, location! (And space, space space!) Not only is “Park Place” super close to the beach and town, but the family room is the size of a small house. Divided into three sections, it has a seating area around the fireplace, a bar table in the center, and a “man cave” area with dual leather recliners and swivel chairs facing a 75” TV.

Need more space? There’s a sitting/reading room with a table, four chairs, and two desks that opens to a small deck. And a formal living room downstairs. And a patio with a redwood table and chairs (and barbecue) facing the enclosed, landscaped yard.

The dining table is set in a delightful glass-enclosed sunroom (seats 8), there’s a separate “breakfast nook” for cozy, intimate dining, and the fully-appointed kitchen has stainless appliances including a five-burner gas range.

There are two bedrooms downstairs: one, with a Queen, has an en suite half bath, the other has two Twins, and there’s a hallway bath with a tub/shower. Upstairs, there’s another guest room with a Queen bed, and a hall bath with a toilet, vanity, walk-in shower and a washer/dryer (there’s another set in the two car garage).

And last but not least, the master suite: a King bed, a balcony, and a private bath with a walk-in shower, jetted tub, two lav sinks, and a separate toilet compartment.

From this desirable location you can walk everywhere… to Lover’s Point Cove, Caledonia Park, the Farmer’s Market, numerous shops, galleries, restaurants and cafes. Walk to the movie theater and stroll to the ice cream store afterwards for a cone. Come experience for yourself why Pacific Grove is called “America’s Last Hometown.”

The Jellies Are Coming…

Another cool new exhibit is opening at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The magical world of jellies—”graceful, dancing drifters that pulse and glow, flash colorful lights and often pack a powerful sting”—will come alive in a blaze of psychedelic glory when “The Jellies Experience” opens March 31.

The exhibit promises to envelop visitors in a sensory extravaganza: from a room that immerses you in a living moon jelly swarm to exhibits of jellies that pulse like living rainbows.

This 7,000 square foot, $3.5 million exhibit focuses on animals that have “no heads, hearts, brains, bones or true eyes”— yet have survived for hundreds of millions of years (and are considered among the ocean’s major predators).

“The Jellies Experience” is included with aquarium admission: $34.95 adult; $29.95 senior (over 65) and student (full-time college, with I.D.); $19.95 children and the disabled; under 3 free.

The Aquarium is open every day except Christmas, and it’s located on historic Cannery Row in Monterey, right behind our office. Stop by and say hi!
