Beautiful and comfortable home in a quiet, convenient neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days exploring the Monterey Bay/Big Sur area with this lovely home as our base. It was comfortable, clean and well stocked and was a perfect home away from home for our family of five. The neighborhood was quiet and the landscaped yard and nearby golf course added to the peaceful ambiance of the property. The home was close to the shore and centrally located in the Bay area. We enjoyed our days spent hiking, whale watching, and visiting nearby parks and communities AND our nights spent dining, relaxing and resting in the home. We would highly recommend a stay at OLGA!

A Lovely Home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for two nights on a quick turn-around for a family event in Monterey. The house was beautiful, and the location convenient for our activities. It is an easy drive to the lighthouse, and probably not a bad walk, although we didn't have time to find out. My brother brought his own bike, but it was nice that there are a variety of bikes and helmets in the garage. Do keep an eye out for the deer that wander onto the street!

The few drawbacks that result in our 4-star review are the following:

-- All bedding and towels were washed using a heavily-scented detergent/softener. This made for an uncomfortable night for those of us who suffer from allergies, even after dosing with Benadryl. My husband coughed and sneezed all night, and my brother had to put two layers of just-worn t-shirt between him and his pillow. We are regular HomeAway/VRBO guests, and have never encountered this problem before, as the owners/managers of the properties we have rented make it a point to use unscented detergent and softener for just this reason. If you have allergies, ask in advance to have the linens washed in unscented detergent, or bring your own and re-wash everything on arrival.

-- As another reviewer mentioned, the regular drinking glasses are on the topmost shelf of one of the upper cabinets, and there aren't many of them, although there are a plethora of wine glasses. Most of our party are not wine drinkers, and I, the shortest member of our party at 5'8", had difficulty in getting a water glass down.

-- The seat springs in the back sectional seem to have given up. If you have back or hip problems, find somewhere else to sit!

With those exceptions, we really enjoyed the place and would definitely return. Steve was very responsive to my questions, and made it possible for us to get into the house a few hours early when travel plans changed for some of our party.

Stunning house in quiet neighborhood near the beach

  • 5 of 5

Neighborhood has some old houses but this one is stunning and is better than the photos. It feels new and perfect inside with a very well done remodel.

Layout is great and all the details are dialed. Bedrooms are good and the living rooms are huge.

It is very close to some of the best coastline of Pacific Grove.

The showers put out almost no water so that is a little bit inconvenient. Streets are tiny, but very quiet.

Would gladly stay agin.

Owner's Response: Hi Francis, Thanks for staying with us and thanks for the review. I know the importance of a good shower in the morning and I thank you for bring to my attention that we had some calcium build up on the shower heads that restricted the water flow. Today I purchased and replaced both shower heads with a couple of really nice shower heads. Our future guests will thank you! I might add that we are a small boutique company that takes great pride in managing short term rentals. I keep a maintenance page in the house manual so anyone can bring to our attention something needs doing and we might have missed. I also provide my personal cell phone number and email address so if something is not pleasing to my guests they can alert me. We take our guests comfort very seriously.!!! I hope you enjoyed that brand new eastern king bed in the master with the plush pillow top. !!!!

Great place to enjoy Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home in Pacific Grove. It was a short walk to the water at which point you can take a beautiful trail all the way to Monterey and Cannery Row. The house was well appointed with bikes, kitchen equipment, and even toys for the kids. Very spacious.

ALL STAR

  • 5 of 5

Imagine staying at an ocean view Four Seasons hotel two blocks from the beach and tide pools. Then imagine its 2500 sq. ft. beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean with a fully equipped kitchen in a beautiful quiet residential area one block from a Monterey Cypress lined golf course. Need I say more?
