About Josephine Thompson

I love the Monterey Peninsula for its natural beauty and sports environment. I am native to Northern California and nothing beats Pacific Grove for its bike rides, running, tennis, beach views. If you are true outdoor enthusiast and nature lover, this is the place for you.

Josephine Thompson purchased this house in 1997

Why Josephine Thompson chose Country Club West

This property is located in the geographic center of the Monterey Peninsula. It is perfect for a party of 6, three couples or a family of 4-6 to stay as affordable option to high price hotels in the area. Tastefully designed and outfitted with everything you will need for your 3+ day stay, you will feel right at home. Completely updated in 2014, you will find new Indian cotton sheets and the most comfortable beds around.

FREE AQUARIUM PASSES (2) AND USE OF NICE HIS/HERS BIKES, INCLUDED IN THE RATE.

What makes this house unique

Aquarium passes and local coupons available. His and Her's bikes in the garage. Within 3 minutes you will be biking on the world famous 17-mile drive.

Great for a young family and grandparents

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be a perfect house for our group! The house was very clean, light and all furnishings were updated. It's very tastefully decorated but in a way that makes it kid friendly. The backyard was set up so that it was easy to relax, and even have guests, while the little ones played. The house is in a quiet area of Pacific Grove but it was very convenient for getting to Monterey and there were quite a few grocery stores nearby. The nearby trails made for perfect walks! Thanks so much. We'll probably be back with other grandchildren...

nice place with nice touches

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed Redwood Retreat immensely. Cozy but not at all cramped, homey but not worn-down. Beautiful stone hearth and wood-burning fireplace in the living room, fun gas fire feature out on the patio. Clever, space-maximizing kitchen. And the location can't be beat! Easy access to Pacific Grove, Monterey, Carmel, Point Lobos and Big Sur— we enjoyed all of the above during our two-day stay.

Great beach get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location. Away from the crowds, but close to all the sights. It's a great set-up for families, as well as for couplles. And the property was very clean upon check-in! I appreciated that a lot!

A perfect retreat in which to recharge.

  • 5 of 5

This little home is the perfect place to come and recharge. Whether you are coming to visit the World Famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, stroll the beaches of Asilomar or spend time at Pebble Beach resort, you cannot go wrong by staying here. The convenient location allows easy access to all of the activities of the Monterey Bay area. This will always be our first choice when we visit again.
