1400 sq. ft. | 3 Bedroom | 2 ½ Bath | Sleeps 6 (1K, 1Q, 2T) Max. Occupancy 6
This snug Pacific Grove bungalow is a cozy place to call home by the night, week, or month. Decorated in Pottery Barn style with pastel interiors and wood flooring, this 3-bedroom 2-½-bath home sleeps six comfortably.
It’s less than a mile walk to Lover's Point Beach, the Aquarium, and the shops and restaurants of downtown Pacific Grove. Take a tip from the locals, and head to Vivolo’s on Central Avenue for some of the best clam chowder this side of the Mississippi.

The house was clean and comfortable. The location was quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. A little more pots and pans would be helpful but we got by ok. Some burners on the gas stove needs to be checked and repaired though. Heater, washer/dryer, dishwasher and televisions all worked great. We would definitely stay there again.

We had the best time exploring Pacific Grove and the surrounding area with Snuggle Inn as our base. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors polite. It was evident that every effort is made to provide everything needed for a comfortable stay and we really appreciated that. We were there during a rainy week in January. The price was fair and it was certainly cozy.
Everything we wanted aside from being on the beach!

Check in was a piece of cake, neighborhood was quiet, bedrooms and bathroom were a decent size, steep driveway was not accessible for lowered cars, backyard was smaller than appeared in the photos, but no big deal for us, one electrical outlet in kitchen isn’t hooked up, poor lighting in the living room and guest bedrooms for reading so bring a book light if you enjoy reading, counter space a little small for big meal preparations, but fine otherwise. The kitchen was more well stocked than indicated in older reviews. The kids movies & Netflix was a lifesaver for the 4YO, neighbors were friendly, there is street parking but the street is very narrow. Very close to groceries, Cannery Row etc. but not quite walking distance if you have kids in tow or are out of shape. This was the first time our group opted to rent a house and we found it much more pleasant/enjoyable than staying in individual hotel rooms. Side note for anyone coming to the area though, the tap water is pretty bad (sulphur) so bring bottled water. We would rent this house again!

The Snuggle In was quite nice and comfortable. The rooms were nice and there was plenty of towels. The house is clean and in a very nice location. The only thing that was lacking was in the kitchen. There were only a few coffee mugs and there was not a lot of silverware. We could not find many of the basic cooking utensils like tongs. Even though it might not be considered a standard item, there was no aluminum foil while at the same time there was plastic wrap and wax paper. No towel bars in the master bath for hand towels or wash clothes near the sink.
Overall a nice place but a few minor things is the difference between great and nice.
pleasant, but overpriced

We enjoyed our stay at the Snuggle In. It was pleasant, and only a 10-15 in walk (down hill) to the aquarium and the beach, one of which is a great location for watching seals bask in the sun. My only complaints were that the staff seemed unresponsive and/or abrupt prior to the trip, and that for the money we paid I would have expected it to be more updated.
We apologize for any apparent abruptness and/or lack of response on our part; we make every effort to be available 24/7 to our guests. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Snuggle In and are sorry you felt it was overpriced. Snuggle In is by far our least expensive three bedroom home and most guests have commented on the value. The photos depict it accurately: it’s well maintained—many items have been updated, but not all.

We had a wonderful vacation at the Snuggle Inn. The home was comfortable with 3 couples. It had everything we needed, beds were comfortable but it does have stairs to the bedrooms which are steep for any person with leg problems. We love Pacific Grove and the restaurants. Will be back again
Great place to stay in Monterey!

My family and I stayed at the Snuggle Inn over Labor Day Weekend, 2015. We chose this house because it was close to Cannery Row. The whole experience was excellent. The house is very cute and just the right size. The check in/check out could not have been easier. Everything was clean and very well supplied. Since we had six people, the 3 bedroom, 2 and 1/2 bath configuration was just right. Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium were a little over 1/2 mile away. We walked there two of the three days we were there. We plan to rent this house again for another vacation. There is so much to do in the area that we barely scratched the surface in the time we had.

The pick up of key and instructions were easy and we located the house with no problem. The house is quaint and room comfortable and big. Furnishing were nice and everything was clean. Our only complaint was the kitchen was lacking enough pans, pots and utensils for cooking for a party of 6. The whole point of staying in a house rather than hotel was that we could cook there. We bought a bag of artichokes and then didn't have a big enough to pit to cook them. Only 1 large pan for cooking and a sauce pan. Everything else was adequate. The neighbors came over to ask us not to park in front of their house which was not a big deal but since it's a public street we thought it was odd. Also, our first night there raccoons ran all over the roof at 2 am. The TV worked the first night but the next day we had to reset the cable box in the garage. Only other complaint was the garage was filled with a lot of stuff and lots of cobwebs and the exterior could use some paint. But all in all the convenience and location were exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of hot water for showers too!!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place for a Monterrey vacation.
Comfortable & great location!

A group of 6 of us stayed here and we were very happy with the location and accommodations. This house has 2 full bathrooms upstairs, one in the master and one in the hall. It also has a small bath downstairs which is convenient.
The house is cozy and fits 6 comfortably. The best part was that it was about a 10 minute walk to the Aquarium/Cannery Row. The house was clean, and had the basic amenities. We did find the kitchen a little lacking in cooking utensils/pans, you pretty much get one of each thing. We also could not locate BBQ tools.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others!

This home is very comfortable, with big bedrooms and a nice living area downstairs! The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances to use for cooking, and the dishwasher did a great job of cleaning the dishes! The house is within walking distance of Lover's Leap, and also Cannery Row. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and it's location! Just a few issues, there was a little ant problem but it didn't affect the food we had in cupboards. And there was a light out in the master bathroom that we called about and it didn't get fixed while we were there. Maybe that was so that they wouldn't disrupt our time there, but it also wasn't easy to be in the bathroom at night with no light. But again, I really liked this house and would use it again!

We had a business event that brought us to Laguna Seca and we stayed at the Snuggle In home while attending the event. The home was cozy and located very close to town so easy to walk down the grocery store or into town to dine. The neighborhood was quiet and neighbors were very friendly. The home was sufficient and nicely appointed. I did find that the cookware and kitchen utensils were woefully inadequate. If it was only two people, it would be fine, but there were six of us. There was only one large pot so when making pasta I had to use the one pot to make the sauce, transfer it to a bowl, then make the pasta in the same pot as the other pot was way too small, also the largest frying pan was very small cooking about two eggs at one time. In a home that accommodates six people there is a need for cookware and cooking and BBQ utensils that will allow to preparing meals for that many people. It is an easy fix and would make the kitchen much more user friendly.

We spent a very enjoyable three days at the Snuggle Inn. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well appointed. The walk to the Wharf area and water was five minutes downhill. We hosted family for a dinner one evening and there was plenty of space outside on the cozy patio.

A family of five, including two teenagers fit well into the Snuggle In. After stocking up on some groceries we were happy to see a few things left behind by other tenants like some tea, sugar, baking powder etc. in one of the cabinets. It would have been nicer to have some "hotel shampoo" minis in the bathrooms for a really nice touch. The home is well maintained and was very comfortable for us. The furniture is serviceable, the appliances all working (including a blender)and utensils were of this century. Most of the knives needed some sharpening, however. The kitchen floor has a loose tile that could be a sign of an uneven subfloor, but that did not detract from our stay. The snuggle in is a pleasant walk to Cannery Row, but I wouldn't advise doing it at night, especially with kids (too dark). Check in and out was super easy as well. All in all great time, all good memories!
Place to avoid

We found the house to be generally clean and neat but we do have some complaints/comments:
1. On the day of our departure the water was shut off by the water department due to lack of payment of the water bill. This was totally unacceptable. Some of us had already taken showers but some hadn't and without water, couldn't. It was just fortunate that nobody was in the shower when the water was shut off. It was very difficult or impossible to do breakfast or clean the house as required by the contract. We tried calling Monterey Rentals using two different numbers but either didn't get an answer or got a recorded message. Since we needed to talk to a real person immediately, we called maintenance. The person we talked to said he would contact Monterey Bay Property Management. When we did not get a call back from anyone, we called maintenance again. So far, nobody has called us and the water was not turned back on prior to our departure. We feel that, as a minimum, we should get a refund for that one day.2. The patio furniture was badly rusted and broken and should be replaced. The instructions said that the furniture should be covered. This was apparently not to protect it but to hide its poor condition. Even the cover was in very bad condition.3. The telephone in the house did not work. We used our cell phones whenever we had a call to make and didn't discover the problem with the house phone until we went to use it to call about the water problem. This could be a real problem in case of an emergency.4. It would be nice to have a working smoke detector downstairs. Although this may not be a code requirement, it would be a useful thing for the safety of the occupants.5. The owners might be forgiven for minor inconveniences of the non-working VCR, the bad switch on the living room table lamp, the non-working front entrance light, lack of dish washing soap or lack of the proper filters for the coffee maker.
