Blue Horizons - Pacific Grove
3 Bedroom Oceanfront Beach House
You won’t believe the view from this beach house: otters in the kelp beds, fishing trawlers, sailboats, and at night—the moon over Monterey Bay. You’ll be spending most of your time on the upstairs balcony or in the great room, which features a fireplace... more and a comfortable leather sofa and chairs. There’s a full bath with shower, a dining table for eight, a sunny kitchen with a professional gas range, and a breakfast nook that seats four. The master bedroom has a King bed, a large TV, and doors that open to the living room balcony. The en suite bath features a double vanity, soaking tub, walk-in shower and a large closet. Downstairs, there’s an office area off the entry, a laundry room, a bath with a shower, a den with two sofas and a TV, and two additional guest rooms. One has a Queen bed; the “blue room" has three twins (bunk beds and one separate twin) along with ocean-themed murals on the walls and ceilings. (NOTE: King and Queen mattresses are new and foam toppers have been added to the twins.) This home includes a two car garage, a central vac, solar backup batteries (in case of power outage), and a portable propane barbecue (when you’re not enjoying one of Pacific Grove’s amazing restaurants). The coastal path is right across the street; Lover’s Point Beach is a five minute walk; Cannery Row and the Aquarium are just 1.5 miles away. Pacific Grove Transient Use License #0404 less ↑

We visit Pacific Grove often but never stayed at this location. It was perfection for what we wanted. The home was very clean and very accurate to the listing and details. While this home comes with minimal 'stuff' that you might be used to from... more other rentals in this price range (such as extra blankets, or various kitchen utensils (we cooked) etc....) it was really, just enough, and i'm confident if we needed anything (which we didn't), Monterey rentals would have helped us. We were all So very pleased, I highly recommend this place. The check in & check out was seamless. WE even used the charming fill-the-tires bikes in the garage (which come with helmets and locks) to enjoy the trails. You can't beat the location for walks along the Ocean trails, the view, people watching, walking distance to a golf course, grocery store and food. Loved it! less

We thoroughly enjoyed this property! It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The view and location are amazing. We’re looking forward to returning!

Room with a View
Six of us spent three nights at this home (our second time). There isn't a better view and the location is perfect for a walk along Monterey Bay. It's so close to so much to see and do. The house has everything you would need... more and is very nicely furnished - a very comfortable bed in the master bedroom. Some elements are a bit dated and could use some updating but other than that, I can only say that we'll be back! less

Whale of a Time
Blue Horizon is a great house. I was worried about no air conditioning but it was totally fine. No need at all. The house is super great for 3 small families. The views as noted are aaaamazing. The telescope is an amazing touch. We saw... more many a whales breaching! Location is great for exploring the area. 2 miles from the 17 mile drive and 1.5 miles from the aquarium. I wish I could have stayed longer. The house was very peaceful. Definitely a feeling of zen there. If I had to suggest one thing it would be black out curtains in the master. But that’s being super picky. Blue Horizon I hope I see you again. less

Whale watching every morning from the living room! Across the street from the coastal walking trail. We were able to spend a full day in each town - Monterey, Big Sir, Salinas, and Pacific Grove, with travel time less than an hour. Great family vacation.... more We will definitely be back! less
— Chitra Samanta, Stayed 05/04/2022
STUNNING VIEWS! We watched whales splash and jump from the living room through the telescope perfectly placed in front of the bay window. Each morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise-lit ocean with crashing waves and hungry otters. Spacious 2 bedrooms and a bonus... more on the ground level is perfect for kids/family. Kitchen, living and master suite upstairs with an additional guest bathroom. House was an easy walk to Cannery Row, quick drive to the Warf. Can't wait to come stay here again and explore the area more! less

Blue Horizons Week
The house was lovely and the view fantastic! The only suggestion I would make is that mattress on the queen bed in the downstairs bedroom should be replaced. It is very soft and my daughter and her husband woke up every day with serious back... more pain. Despite that we will return! less
— Philip, Stayed 04/19/2022
So sorry to hear about that! We let the owner know, and she is replacing the queen mattress downstairs.
A gem. Close to everything but you don’t need to leave the view. We can’t say enough good things about this home. We will be back annually.

Gorgeous Home , Awesome view
This house was perfect for 3 active couples. We walked, rode our bikes and kayaked over the 3 days we stayed at the house. In between activites we would just stare out the window and enjoy the view. We will be back.
— Patricia, Stayed 11/03/2021
This house was fantastic! We loved the views, being able to walk along the shore just outside, and the space. The kitchen has everything we needed and all the beds were comfortable. No complaints.
— Anna, Stayed 10/16/2021
Loved the upstairs - great living room, master bedroom bathroom suite, kitchen, dining room and fabulous view of the ocean. The downstairs needs overhauling - the beds were uncomfortable and the rooms too small and house doesn’t work for 2 couples and children. Very disappointed.
— Guy F, Stayed 12/02/2020
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Blue Horizons. We have relayed your concerns to the owner - she purchased new King and Queen mattresses, added foam toppers to the Twin beds, and replaced the blinds downstairs. Stay tuned for more upgrades soon!
Wonderful Stay at Blue Horizons
We had a wonderful stay at Blue Horizons. The house was very nice. The View and location was spectacular!
— David, Stayed 10/12/2020
We loved it!
Blue Horizons was everything we could've wanted in a vacation rental. We especially appreciated the owners' notes everywhere explaining how to use things and which remotes went to which devices. They took all the stressful guesswork out of staying in a home rental.

Blue Horizons August 2020
The house and the view were both beautiful. There was lots of helpful information posted around the house. Everything was clean. Beds were comfortable. We even saw a whale while eating dinner on our second night. Nobody had any complaints at all.

Blue Horizons is amazing. Went for a birthday weekend and spent many hours dreamily watching the Pacific from the living room windows with my best friends. The house is in a wonderful location in Pacific Grove and we could easily walk to Lovers Point or... more down to Asilomar. We will definitely come here again! (Only glitch was there was no propane in the tank so we could not use the barbecue, so we used the broiler instead.) less
— Robin, Stayed 06/28/2019
We're happy you had a good visit! If you would have called our 24/7 maintenance line we would have happily delivered a new propane tank for the barbecue.
What a lovely place. The view was spectacular and the house a joy to stay in. I had not thought of the advantage of staying on the ocean and yet facing north. There was no blinding glare in the afternoons and we had fantastic sunrises... more as well as constant beauty to look at. I will certainly try to stay there again if I ever get back to Pacific Grove. less

Blue Horizons house
Everything was great....as described on vrbo. Loved everything about the house and neighborhood. Only issue was the envelope with the key wasn't in the mailbox outside your office.....it was in the office, but no notification of that. It turned out ok, but your notes should... more have indicated that the office was a possibility. Maybe I missed that direction???? Great place! less
— Nancy, Stayed 04/04/2019
No more key snafus! We've installed an electronic lock, so our guests no longer have to stop by our office.
Wow - just wow! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! Warm, welcoming, and beautiful! The location is amazing!!! The view speaks for itself - but we didn’t realize it is right across from a bike/hike/running trail that has to be... more one of our country’s most beauiful! Don’t miss this. It’s a true treasure. ❤️❤️❤️ less
— Jane, Stayed 02/04/2019
Amazing views, lovely accommodation ideal for us travelling as 2 couples. The communication was first class and easy to follow instructions were received ahead of our arrival. We really enjoyed watching the otters from the window and stargazing at night! Perfect!!
— Claire, Stayed 10/26/2018
The view from upstairs is beautiful! The location is great! The house is very roomy and was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied for cooking and even had things like soap, foil, spices and a few staples available. The bath was well... more supplied also. A few things that could be improved - need darker curtains or blinds that open in master suite. Lots of car headlights shining into the bedroom. Also, the ice maker in fridge and jets in bathtub don't work, if that's important to you. Also, the cleaning fee seems excessive. Guests are asked to volunteer, but not required, to empty trash, strip beds, start dishwasher, which we don't mind at all, but not with a $299 cleaning fee. I feel like that fee could be reduced. With all of the taxes and fees, the final price was almost double the advertised price. less

Location, Location, Location!
What a beautiful home! Perfect location for downtown Pacific Grove. Kitchen is fully stocked. Living room has a view that makes you never want to leave. They even have a telescope so you can check out all the activity in the ocean! Great library downstairs.... more Plenty of bathrooms. Huge garage. It was amazing for our girls weekend. The only slight downside is the kids room is not really designed for having adults in there. But with 4 of us, it was great! less
— Kari, Stayed 10/11/2018
spacious ocean view
We loved the huge open upstairs space with unobstructed views of Monterey Bay. Kitchen worked well (needs a good grater!!). The master suite was very large and comfortable. We noted the careful instructions for all situations - very helpful. An elegant and welcoming place. One... more small downside - the cleaners had used too much bleach in the downstairs bath and it took a long time for the smell to clear out. less
— Ryan, Stayed 09/26/2018
The process to reserve the house went smoothly. Mostly on line, but with some phone calls. Michelle was great in answering questions and helping make the reservation. Check in was easy and they were ready for us when we arrived. Only took a minute or... more two. Directions in the written materials were quite good and thorough. The house itself was great and just as advertised. It was clean upon arrival and well furnished with everything we needed. Since there were only four of us and we ate meals out for the most part, we did not take full advantage of the house. But the beds were great and showers and bathrooms great. Hard to suggest any improvements. One very small suggestion would be directions for the master shower. In order to get warm water, one needs to have the control set in the middle. If you go all the way counterclockwise, it turns cold again. It took us a shower or two to figure this out. But once we did, it worked great. less
— James, Stayed 09/07/2018
Fantastic view on the ocean
It was a fantastic house, immediately when you step through the door. Great to see the whales and other animals throughout the window of the livingroom. We would like to stay much longer
— Lilian, Stayed 08/10/2018
Blue Horizons is Perfect!
Blue Horizons was the perfect place for a reunion of high school friends turning 60! The home is just as advertised - super clean, large, fully stocked and perfect. The property management company was easy to work with and responded quickly to every question. Highly... more recommended. We would rent again! less
— Susan, Stayed 08/01/2018
The location and view could not be more perfect. The large picture window is like looking at a National Geographic tv show. There were otters, seals and dolphin in the area almost all the time with tons of birds to enjoy as well. The spotting... more scope provided on a tripod is a wonderful touch. The house has a wonderful walking trail that leads to a point to watch the sunset in one direction and a nice restaurant and bar in the other. Big Sur and the 17 mile drive are easily reached from this location. While there are a few fixtures that could use updating, the pictures you see are exactly what you get. The furniture is comfortable and the instructions on how to use everything are precise. The kitchen is also well outfitted for cooking at the house and enjoying the view from the dining table. All in all, this place is fantastic. less
— Saundra, Stayed 06/21/2018
Marvelous house with a spectacular location. We had a three generation vacation, and all loved the house. I will be looking to return in two years when we hope to be back in the area, as this house is really That good. We loved watching... more the sea otters from the front window every day, anytime of the day. Pacific Grove is a neat town with lots of charm. Kitchen is well equiped. My only quibble is it is missing a Real grill. Has both a stove top grill and a mini-Weber grill, but in cooking for a group, neither is adequate. Still a 5 star place! less
— Wayne, Stayed 04/04/2018
Sounds like you had a 5 star vacation! We passed your comments to the owners, and they purchased a full-sized Weber barbecue.
My wife suggested that we rent a home for our family, and her parents and sister to join us in Carmel for Christmas. After reviewing what was available on-line, I quickly told her that we needed to stay in Monterey and that I have the... more perfect place! She was disappointed at first, but she felt better when she saw the place, and when we were there, she said this is much better than what she was thinking for Carmel and she's so happy that we decided to stay there. Our view on Ocean View Blvd was incredible! Oh My!!! It was the most heavenly view!! Did I mention that we had a great view? Ha! There were seven of us, and it slept seven with 3 great bathrooms, a fantastic kitchen and plenty of room to hang out in a room by yourself too. Check-in and check-out was extremely easy. All instructions were simple. Although we didn't get the fireplace to work, we got over it quickly enough and we were completely amazed how friendly and helpful the young lady was when we called the help number to discuss the problem on Christmas Eve. Each morning involved a walk on the coast. The afternoons were in Pacific Grove, Monterey, and even Carmel. My father-in-law and I even got to play golf at the Pacific Grove Golf Course. Thanks for the great stay and I hope to see you again. less
