MontereyRentals.com Policies - by checking “I have read and agree to these policies,” or by completing this reservation, accepting keys or taking occupancy to the Premises, I signify my acceptance of and agreement with the policies herein.  

Check in time is 3 pm.  Check out time is 11 a.m.


This Agreement may be cancelled up to 60 days prior to arrival. The full amount of the rental is due within 60 days of arrival and is non-refundable after that date. The down payment, made at the time of the reservation, is completely non-refundable.

A $35 change fee will be charged to the credit card used to make the original reservation for any change to an existing reservation.


The Premises are located in a residential neighborhood that includes both short-term guests and year-round residents who enjoy living in a tranquil environment. Maximum occupancy rates are strictly enforced.

Special events and/or large parties, such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, birthday/anniversary celebrations, are strictly prohibited, and are a violation of the rental property owner's rental permit. A small dinner party or gathering for no more than one and one half times the number of guests who are accommodated at the Premises is permitted.

Note: If you are planning an event during your stay, please be sure you have arranged for a venue other than the Premises (contact us for suggestions of alternate venues). If you did not understand these policies when you booked your reservation and wish to cancel your stay, please contact us within 24 hours of making your reservation, and we will fully refund any payment made and cancel any future obligation.

Security Deposits and Accidental Damage Safeguard

Security deposits (if any) are charged to the credit card used to secure the reservation seven days prior to arrival and returned seven days after departure, or an itemized statement indicating the basis for and the disposition of the deposit or any part of it will be provided.

Security deposits, if any, will be held in the trust account of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals. All or any portion of the security deposit, upon termination of occupancy, may be used as reasonably necessary, to (i) pay any sums still due; (ii) repair damage, excluding ordinary wear and tear, caused by the occupants, by any guests, or by any licensees of the occupants; (iii) clean the Premises; (iv) replace or return personal property or appurtenances.

Accidental Damage Safeguard (“ADS”) is a non-refundable fee for which Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals assumes the liability associated with minor accidental damages to the rented premises or its contents during occupancy relative to this reservation. ADS is not insurance, nor should it be interpreted as such. ADS allows Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals to waive occupants’ responsibility for reported accidental damage up to a maximum aggregate amount of $1,500.00.

ADS becomes effective upon check-in (and may not be purchased after check-in) and terminates upon departure of the occupants or at 11 am on the last day of the rental term (“check-out time”), whichever occurs first. Unreported damages, non-accidental damages, excluded damages, or damages exceeding $1,500.00 dollars are the sole responsibility of the occupants. The purchase of ADS does not in any way negate occupants’ responsibility to care for the Premises as if it were occupants’ own home. The cost to repair damage attributable to occupants or occupants’ invitees due to intentional acts, willful misconduct, gross negligence, abuse of the Premises, violation of these rental policies, or animals will not be paid under the ADS, and remain the responsibility of the occupants.

Damage must be reported to Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals prior to “check-out time.” The ADS applies only to loss or damage to the rented premises or its contents. The applicability of ADS to damaged property (and any determination of the extent of damage and/or the cost of repairs thereof) shall be in the sole and absolute discretion of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals.

Note:  We understand that accidents happen. You obviously do, too, since you have made this purchase—so please do not hesitate to contact us if accidental damage occurs during your stay. We want to know about it, so that 1) your ADS is applicable, and 2) we can make repairs for both you and future guests.

We love the quaint and peaceful atmosphere of Pacific Grove. Ellie's Place is perfectly located in the pines near the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary within easy walking distance to the beautiful bay and town. We came for a wedding and shared the house with our adult daughter. The split bedroom/baths floor plan with the living space and kitchen in between was perfect for us. We also enjoyed the spacious backyard and quiet neighborhood. A repeat visit is in our plans.

My best friend and I were looking for a get away from the heat and rented Ellie's place. Lovely home, nicely appointed in a quiet neighborhood. It is close to town if so inclined to walk (we drove). The rooms are nicely appointed and colorful. The patio is secluded from the neighbors for the most part. We didn't do much cooking, but the kitchen has everything you need.

The folks who own this property have done a lovely job and would be great for families, girl's weekend etc. Pacific Grove is easy to get around and a wonderful place to just drive and get lost. You always end up near the water sooner or later. Very close to Carmel and of course Monterey.

Ellie's Place is located about a mile from Asilomar in a very quiet and tranquil neighborhood behind the Butterfly Sanctuary surrounded by the forest. We saw deer everyday! The house was recently repainted so everything looks fresh and new. I'm guessing the owner must be an artist because of the decor, color scheme of walks, and beautiful paintings on walls. I highly recommend Ellie's Place. The only suggestion I have is to replace the window coverings in the bedrooms or have them professionally cleaned due to the dirt and dust throughout those window coverings. Other than those window coverings, the house was impeccably clean and a pleasure to visit!

Lovely Place!

Pacific Grove is our favorite place for a getaway. We decided to try renting a house this trip so we could take our dog. Ellie's Place was perfect for us. Beautifully landscaped with great fenced yards, wonderful deck in back, good off-street parking, great location close to beaches, restaurants & grocery stores. The house is newly remodeled & had everything we needed including an outdoor grill. It is very pretty & clean & quite comfortable. We really appreciate a rental that allows dogs. Thank you! Monterey Rentals did a great job with communicating & making it easy for us to come & go.

Thank you for another great summer!

This is our second summer renting Ellie's Place.. 1st we love renting via Monterey Bay Property Management. Kyle and Michelle are the best. Ellie's place is a gem of a home. We love the location, we can walk the pups into town or the water front in just minutes. Everything is close, restaurants, the beach, shops, Monterey and Carmel are only 15 minutes away. The home is sweet and bright. Lots of windows and sunshine. Nice size bedrooms and each room has a private bath. The house is colorful and happy and for those cool mornings (that we loved) there is a beautiful and so cozy gas fire place. You can see the Monarch Preserve from the kitchen. The yard is full of surprises, lots of flowers and succulents. And dozens of hummingbirds and birds. The back yard is perfect for us dog owners with a fenced back yard right off the master bedroom. The kitchen is not fancy, but has all you need to make a good meal. Plus the deer are always around and the beach is just down the street.. Ellie's Place is a happy place. We spent 6 very happy" weeks " at Ellie's place.

We thoroughly enjoyed Ellie's Place. Everything about the house itself was attractive, well cared for, and felt like home, right down to the very attractive prints and photos on the walls. We especially loved the remote controlled gas fireplace, to warm us during the cool, Pacific Grove days and nights.The kitchen was well stocked with the usual kitchen items we'd expect to find in a rental, as well as things we might not usually see, such as different teas and spices. We suggest a few more wine glasses if there are more than two adults.The location is beautiful, quiet, and convenient and the neighbors friendly. We also found a couple of things lacking. After using the grill twice, we ran out of propane. And when we used it, we had to clean it first. Also, the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper. Not huge issues, but slight inconveniences. Overall, we give it high reviews and we would definitely use this house again

I really enjoyed the house. I found it to be in the perfect location, just off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy everything. The house was tastefully decorated and I will recommend this place for sure ( I already have) There were lots of windows and bright sunshine coming in. The butterfly sanctuary was next door and the backyard had lots of them flying around. I brought my dog and found the house was great for pets.

I am giving it 3.5 stars because there are a few items that I would alter.

1: we were three adult women and the second bedroom had a daybed w/trundle bed; it was very uncomfortable not to mention extremely noisy. The room it was in was very nice and plenty of room for two twin beds or even another queen. 2: We were active during the day and enjoyed the evening relaxing with a fire, wine and hoping to watch a movie. We were unable to decipher the how to operate the DVR. There were 5 remotes on the table and a mess of wires behind ??? I would suggest keeping it more simple or having detailed instruction near the TV. Needless to say we never watched a movie. 3: I have a rental property and have visited many others. When you pay a cleaning fee you should not have to remove the sheets from he bed and place the towels in the washing machine or take the garbage out to the cans. When we arrived we had to put the sheets on the day/trundle bed. They knew there were three of us and that should have been taken care of. It was kind of like summer camp.Other than that I really liked the house and would return but not to sleep on that daybed.

Great place

Wonderful stay--seeing thousands of Monarch butterflies in the backyard was a bonus. Our only knock is that there were at least four remotes for the TV and no instructions...we wanted to put on some music and gave up after monkeying with each remote for a few minutes. One universal remote with clear instructions would have been nice.

We absolutely love the location of Ellie's Place! The neighborhood was quiet and friendly, quick jog to run along the beach trails, dogs welcomed the nice big fenced in backyard, and we had more Monarch butterflies to enjoy than when we visited the sanctuary. The property was clean and the sound of the ocean make it even more enjoyable. Quick, easy walks to Pacific Grove dog-friendly cafes we also really enjoyable. For the dogs, we did not have a shovel or doggie scoop to pick up after them in the yard. We did suggest to have something available for renters to use.

We found Ellie's place to be a little gem.!! The location is perfect. We can walk into downtown PG and the water front in just a few minutes. And only a 5 minute drive to beautiful Asilomar beach. There are dozen of restaurants and shops within minutes. Carmel and Monterey are just a 10/15 minute drive. Loved the privacy of the yard and specially the court yard off the master bedroom. The house has plenty of windows and sliding glass doors, allowing the breeze to flow through out the house. There are a lot of hummingbirds and other birds. We found the furniture to be very comfortable including the Queen bed in the master bedroom, the sofa and the kitchen is well stocked. The two bathrooms are plenty big. The Wi-Fi is fast, there are 3 nice TV's with plenty of channels. The washer and dryer are huge and fast. And the BBQ was spotless. Monterey Bay Properties took care of us very well. The only two things that I would change about Ellie's place are: 1. I would replace the tundrel bed in the guest bedroom to a Queen bed. There is plenty of room. The twin beds are very comfortable. But when put together to make up the King bed, one is higher then the other and there is not way to lock them together. 2. The driveway needs to be mulched or paved. Due to the drought, the dust is bad. In turn we had to wash our feet, the dogs feet, floors, towels and clothes more then usual.

We loved this house. The neighborhood is so quiet, yet close enough to do everything you need in Monterey. I was there with my boyfriend and adult son for my other son's wedding. Home has everything you need for your stay, and a great layout for guests to visit. The night before the wedding, the bride and groom stopped by with her aunt and uncle for appetizers and a glass of wine. Everything updated and nothing dated in the home. My favorite part was the use of color throughout the house. I would never be brave enough to paint my bedroom walls that shade, but so loved it!
