Policies

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.

Cancellations

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.

Occupancy

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 had a great stay at this cottage. It is in a perfect location, close to everything we wanted to do. Walking to Lovers Point where they have a trail along the coast every morning was my favorite. We had lots of fun gathering around the fire pit at night talking, and playing games. The beds are comfy and the house had everything we needed. It's a charming house, it just feels like home when you get back from a long day of sightseeing.

This cottage—complete with a white picket fence—looks like it came straight out of a storybook. And the location couldn’t be more enchanting: in just a few blocks you can be shopping, dining, or sipping a latte at one of Pacific Grove’s quaint coffee shops—or communing with seals and sea otters on the coastal recreational trail.

There’s a peek of ocean from the front steps, and a huge backyard with a dining table, barbecue, and four Adirondack chairs around a wood-burning firepit for cozy evenings under the stars. The living room has hardwood floors and a barrel ceiling, the dining room seats six, and the kitchen features stainless appliances and a new five-burner gas cooktop. Both bedrooms have Queen sleigh beds, and the bath has a tub/shower combination.

From the annual Butterfly Parade to the apple trees around Caledonia Park, there's a reason Pacific Grove is called "America's last hometown." A more casual—but no less charming—alternative to Carmel, Pacific Grove is a seaside enclave of restored Victorians and beach bungalows. And the walkable downtown has something for everyone: boutiques, galleries, antique and consignment shops, a cinema, a bookstore—and too many coffeehouses to count.

Lovely, quiet getaway at great price

My family comes down to the Monterey area every summer for a vacation, and we like trying different homes to rent. This cottage was by far the best place we've ever stayed! The location is just a few blocks from the water near Lover's Point, so we were able to go for lovely walks along the shore right from our front door! Everything about this home is wonderful--there is a partial ocean view from the living room; the rooms are light and bright; the home is adorable with curved doorways and beautiful beach-y artwork everywhere; it is very clean and well cared-for; it's in an extremely quiet neighborhood; the beds are comfortable; the kitchen is well-stocked with supplies for cooking and nice dinnerware; the backyard is huge with a nice firepit (which we used to sit outside in the evening); and the price is extremely reasonable! My family loved every minute we were here and wished we could stay longer! We will be back next year! Thanks for a very enjoyable experience!

My husband, adult daughter, and I recently traveled to the Monterey Bay area to visit our son who is stationed at the Presidio. Because we were there for a full week we really wanted an entire house with a kitchen and room to spread out. Snow White's Cottage was perfect for us!

The home is very well cared for and has everything you could possibly need. There were more than enough towels and linens and a well-appointed kitchen and outdoor grill which helped us save a ton of money on eating out. TVs in the living room and each bedroom were appreciated at the end of busy days and the games were perfect for family time. The back yard and fire pit are beautiful but we never used it because we were so tired each night (there's tons of stuff to do in the area!). And the washer/dryer meant we didn't have to bring home dirty clothes.

The neighborhood is quiet and residential and very walkable. Just a few minutes down the road is Lover's Point Park and the recreation trail where you can rent bikes or kayaks.

The key pickup and drop-off was a simple process. A previous review mentioned a few maintenance issues which we didn't see at all. Everything worked perfectly, was spotless, and we would definitely rent here again. Do not hesitate to book this cottage for your family!

Thank you, Snow White!

My husband and I just returned from our 11-day stay in the cottage and have been eager to write a positive review. The house is perfectly suited for two people, is light, clean and fresh and feels roomy, the back yard is exceptionally inviting and the neighborhood is quiet and comfortable and walkable.

In the spirit of your informational packet that says you don't stay there so would appreciate comments on things that need fixing, we offer:

All the doors squeak, front and indoors, including closets and could be oiled.The furnace filter message is on that says the filter needs replacing.There are ants in the kitchen, maybe a couple a dozen a day, wandering across the counters.Is the water filter in the Brita pitcher ever changed?

These are by no means complaints, just helpful suggestions to make the visits of future renters more pleasant, and that includes ourselves as we will be back in July for a two-week stay. Please thank the owners for sharing their cosy place. Wish we could buy it!!!!!

Thanks again.

Lovely Stay at Snow White's Cottage

Reviewed by Susan

Hubby and I took the two grandkids for a winter break getaway to Pacific Grove, and stayed at Snow White's Cottage. We've used Monterey Bay rentals before, but this was our first time in this rental. My impression was that it was new in their inventory.

We loved it! It isn't fancy (which the price, on the lower end for Monterey Bay Rentals, reflects, but it is very comfortable. Very nice beds, VERY quiet! Wish I could afford to buy a place like this. It is an older home, with charming details including high arched ceilings. You get a peak a boo view of the ocean from the living room and dining room. You can walk to the ocean (about four or five blocks) or to downtown Pacific Grove (perhaps half a mile or a bit more). Lovely and quiet neighborhood, plenty of off street parking. The kitchen had lots of counter space and was well equipped, with a large dishwasher and a new, sparkling clean gas stove and oven. With kids, most of our cooking was at home. There was a very nice gas grill on the back patio which I wanted to try, but it was cold and rainy much of the time we were there so we never got around to it. Next time! (and there will be a next time, I've already booked a return trip later in the year for the two of us).

A big plus is that there is a HUGE backyard (and a fairly large front yard as well)....kids loved that, even when the weather wasn't great, and when it was nice the adults loved sitting out there. Really pleasant and private. There is an outdoor fireplace, again, something else to try next time! Another plus is lots of storage, including a big walk in closet in one bedroom. All three rooms have TVs, though we only used the one in the living room.

Just a note: the pictures showed an entrance to the bathroom from a bedroom; there is also an entrance from the hall right next to the other bedroom. The bedroom without the direct entrance to the bathroom is actually a bit bigger I think (It definitely has the larger closet) and felt more private to us (further back in the corner of the house), so I was glad we didn't have to walk through a bedroom to get to the bathroom. The set up was great for two adults and two small kids. It might be a little tight for two couples.

Speaking of kids, they loved the picket fence in front and the cottage appearance....my grandson, just turned four, was really convinced that it was in fact Snow White's Cottage. And when we saw dear just outside in the am, he was enchanted!

Recommended!

Excellent. The home is well cared for and was everything we could hope for. The home is within easy walking distance of Lover's Point and the Aquarium. The yard is private and well maintained. Our family of 4 would stay there again!
