Pacific Grove, California

Live right on the water's edge in the top floor of a 100+year-old Victorian
that looks out upon the otters and dolphins of Monterey Bay.


Lovers Point
The curved balcony of this home looks east to the sunrise. The living room is spacious and has views galore. Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean in my cozy 'goddess' bedroom. (Photo taken from my balcony at sunrise)

The path adjacent to Lover's Point. Just a few yards from this Victorian home, high above the bay.

View from Kitchen, Balcony, and Octagon,


a golf love poem
Come feel safely cradled in the bosom of Lovely Mother Earth.
Where you dare love sweet and sleep deep and dream complete
before you rise bright to slice tasty green divots from her shore.

At night the lights across the bay curve round like a glittering necklace

view from octagon and balcony
Allow time for a nice long soak in the old fashioned claw-foot bathtub. I'll provide the bubbles. It is also my pleasure to treat you to morning coffee, tea, juice, fruit and muffins.



Downtown is only a couple of minutes away on foot. Stroll around Pacific Grove and discover its treasures, including many fine restaurants, a local art center, library, museum of natural history, antique shops and some great little coffee shops. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is within walking distance along the hiking/biking path.
 
Although there are cars passing below on Ocean View Boulevard, my cozy little aerie is set far back and high above. It sits behind two homes that face the road directly, so any traffic noise is minimal. (I took this photo at dusk from my balcony).
TINY Romantic bedroom
Separate bedroom is TINY! with low ceiling,
to boot.  BUT - the narrow beaded dark wood
covers walls and ceiling, wraps you in a cocoon that feels remarkably like a sailing ship's cabin.

Likr a ships cabin



Sweeping views of the bay can be seen from almost every window (and there are lots of them). Since it occupies the top floor of a one hundred year old Victorian, the ceiling has interesting angles, and pitches. Redwood strip panelling adds warmth to the interior. They don't make them like this anymore.
