A comfortable house
Reviewed by I. L.
We stayed at Bungalow by the Bay for three weeks over the Christmas holidays. We really liked the location: the house is on a quiet residential street with plenty of parking and a 10-minute walk down the hill to the recreation trail. There is a number of nice restaurants within an easy walking distance, as well as a grocery store and a drug store. One can walk into downtown Pacific Grove in about 25 minutes.
From the house, there are very nice views with a peek of the ocean from the living room and kitchen windows. A window seat the length of the big window in the living room is a nice touch, as is a gas fireplace. The furnishings are pretty old but serviceable, the sitting furniture and the beds comfortable enough. There is a number of shelves and cupboards filled with sea shells and other sea-related knick-knacks, which we would have preferred to be empty to unpack into. Some hooks by the front door for jackets and a shoe rack or at least a mat would be a welcome addition.
The kitchen is large and bright and well stocked. There is a cart on rollers parked in the middle of the kitchen, providing some additional counter and storage space. We found it a bit of a nuisance, since one has to roll it out of the way all the time, depending on whether one wants to get at the oven or the dishwasher or the refrigerator.
There is a lovely big back porch and a back garden. However, the patio furniture, which looked so nice on the pictures, was covered with dirt and spider webs from sitting outside uncovered all the time. This unfortunately seems to be the case with most rental units (we are frequent visitors to the area and have stayed in many Monterey Rentals properties.)
The house has a basement, which is great for bikes and such. A separate little laundry room off the kitchen also added to the convenience.On the whole, a very nice stay!

My husband and I spent a month at this charming rental and were pleased with every aspect of it. We had one issue with the toilet not refilling that was fixed within and hour of our reporting of it! It was in walking distance of everything and located in a nice friendly neighborhood. We will especially miss the deck with it's tree house like view. We often woke before sunrise so we could experience the city lights and then the sunrise. The barking of the sea lions was wonderful. often they'd start up towards the end of the day. A lovely atmospheric touch! The garden was welll landscaped and maintained. We have no complaints about this property. Thank you we had the time of our lives!
