This is our family's second time at this property and we enjoyed ourselves even more! The home is well-appointed with nice finishes and furniture, the location is terrific, and this time we enjoyed the amenities even more (outside deck, fireplace, games, etc).It was the perfect spot for our family weekend and we will surely return again!

The Cannery Row Cottage was the perfect size and location for our family vacation. It had the perfect amount of space for 3 couples and was conveniently located for activities and meals. We enjoyed the well appointed kitchen for making meals together and the large dinning room table for family game times. The decor was lovely and the photos online tell the story of the beautiful home. The gloomy/cool weather was the only downside to this first of what I hope is many family California vacations.

The house was perfect. We brought our two children to where we met and had out first date many years ago. The house was perfect, we all had our own space, we enjoying the living space with a fire each night and the porch and outdoor space was a bonus! Being two blocks from the aquarium was amazing. It was a short drive to Big Sur, Carmel and the wharf. Would definitely recommend!
What an amazing house!

This house was an incredible start to our perfect California vacation. We are a family of 5 (2 teenage girls and a college age son) We travel a lot and having their own space is a must. The Cannery Row Cottage gave them their space and ours! Great bedrooms and bathrooms. The upstairs bedroom with outdoor terrace was amazing! The kitchen is beautiful--we enjoyed cooking meals instead of eating out every time. The washer/dryer were put to good use, and the living room is a spacious place to gather for some family time. Overall, it was a positive experience and a perfect house. I highly recommend this cottage.

Wow!! Nice!! Those are just a couple of words we all said as we arrived at and entered Cannery Row Cottage. We were able to park our two cars in front--ample space and parking permits were provided. The front yard was clean and very well-maintained, and as I climbed the stairs, my thought was of being able to sit on the front porch bench. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. We all liked the furnishings and the kitchen was well-appointed and supplied. The bedrooms were very spacious--we appreciated that each had a bathroom. The beds were sure COMFY--not one of us had sleeping problems. We had easy walks to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Incidentally, we brought a stroller for our two-year old, but what a nice surprise to find that there was a stroller at the cottage. My son spent his time playing golf at the Pebble courses, so he didn't have far to travel. The only downside was the rain, but that didn't keep us from getting out, but I didn't get to use the bench. Maybe next time--I'm going to make a point!! The only suggestion any of us could make was that we could have used some washcloths. We thought that maybe it was just one bathroom, but there were not any--I guess we're just kind of old fashioned that way. We had a great trip and it's a fabulous property!! Thanks for everything!!

The Cottage was perfect. We loved being walking distance to Cannery Row and the walk/bike path to Pacific Grove. The house was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The 3 bedrooms and beds were great and even though one only had a half bath, the area was well lighted and convenient to dress and get ready to go out. The two showers worked out fine for the 6 of us. Basically, we all loved it and will likely return in the future.

We stayed st the cottage with our son ,his wife and two young daughters.The location is very convenient ,situated 3 minutes away from a large supermarket,and about 10 minutes from the waterfront .The property itself met our expectations ,except maybe the glass ware.A new set of wine glasses,including some flutes to enjoy the Californian sparkling wine would be welcome.
We've restocked the house with wine glasses so you can enjoy some California bubbly on your next trip!

This is the second time we have stayed here. We were also here last year. Our experience this year was just as nice as last year. Maybe even better, because there was no fire this year. Our only problem was the telephone line from the phone to the wall was missing, but was replaced. We noticed some cracking in the plaster above the dining room table.
Thank you so much for alerting us to the cracking in the plaster ceiling - it has since been repaired.

Pictures are accurate. Nice cute little house w nice features. Great bathrooms. Very convenient location, walk to grocery, walk to aquarium. Easy on street parking in front of house w provided permit. Area seems safe and clean.
Master bedroom w sliding French doors. One sliding door is blocked off, no privacy in this room, the door should be released for use as needed. Bowl sink in this bathroom is cool- the drain plug is difficult to use and needs to be serviced.
I would highly recommend this house for visiting Monterey.
Thank you for your review, and for letting us know that the bathroom sink needed service. The master bedroom has sliding pocket doors which close for privacy - we’re sorry you had a problem with them. We have a 24/7 maintenance line to help guests with anything that is malfunctioning or that they do not know how to operate…. we wish you would have called while you were here so that we could have assisted.

We stayed at Cannery Cottage over 3 days for my mother-in-laws birthday celebration with the grandchildren. I loved that the cottage was 3 blocks from the aquarium and waterfront area, perfect for morning strolls, taking little one's the the aquarium and visiting restaraunts on Cannery Row. The boys were able to play in the small yard and scooter around the neighborhood easily, The place was very clean, well-appointed decor and had wifi and cable as well as a BluRay for movies at night, The perfect place for a small family gathering, families with small children or friends weekend in Monterey. Not suitable for a large group who is looking to party all night long as its in a quiet neighborhood.
Great Location and Accomodation!

This cottage is as cute as it looks in the photos! Probably even better! This was my first experience staying in a residence rather than a hotel. I can see how this would be so FUN with family or friends along. Since it was just the two of us, we didn't cook but the kitchen was wonderfully equipped to make a gourmet meal. The front porch sitting and back garden sitting area are great gathering spots for quiet conversations. Cannery Row was a short walk and we enjoyed the aquarium and shopping and wine tasting. I would probably stay here again if I take friends or family.

Great location: 3 blocks from the Aquarium. Within walking distance to Nob Hill Foods and a 7-11 store. Close to many good restaurants.Negatives: the telephone did not work, but was fixed by maintenance (the phone jack was plugged into the wrong spot on the modem). The stairs to the upstairs bedroom are dangerous. The steps are too narrow so you can slip off the stairs. The hand rails should be on the other wall.The rectangular dining room table is too big for the room (a round or oval table would work better)It took a long time to boil water on the stove.Positives: The great location and everything else about the cottage was as described and very nice and well maintained. We would definitely stay at the Cottage again.

Wonderful stay at the Cannery Row Cottage! The Property Manager, Kyle, had everything in order when we arrived... The minute we walked through the front door, it gave us a welcoming feeling right away. The open concept cozy living room with gas fireplace allowed you to see right through to the dinning area and then into the modern kitchen (everything you needed, dinnerware, utensils, etc.) and stainless steel appliances. We also enjoyed the use of the laundry room during our six day stay, the bedrooms were comfortable and fully stocked with enough towels and all the items needed to keep house as needed, would have loved to stay longer... very comfortable.We found the cottage to be in a very convenient location, we were walking distance to restaurants, grocery store, walk/running/bike paths and especially the numerous activities of the Monterey Acquarium and Cannery Row.Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A+ experience!

My wife and I brought out three kids (18 months - 6 yrs of age) to Monterey for the weekend. The location was perfect and walking distance to the aquarium. The cottage is an updated 2 bedroom with a lift serving as the 3rd bedroom. Given our children's ages, the stairs to the loft are tricky and we were able to keep them from the stairs.
The full kitchen was great and the kids enjoyed the small yard. Only small downside was a small ant problem in the kitchen. Aside from that, the place was great and we'll be back.

This house is beautifully renovated with new bathroom features, upgraded appliances, and lush decoration throughout.

Very nice, clean and updated house. Convenient location to pacific grove and cannery row. Beds are comfortable and high quality bedding, bathrooms are nice and clean, but need window covering in bathroom attached to bedroom 2, especially with a glass shower enclosure, and no privacy while getting dressed with neighbors fence right there. Kitchen table has all place settings on table, which I feel is unnesessry and somewhat in the way. Gardeners showed up at 7 am on a Tuesday and woke us all up, other than those 3 minor things it was great. I would stay here again if we return to the area.

The rental cottage is close to everything on the Monterey peninsula as well as within walking distance to the Aquarium, Cannery Row shops and restaurants, and downtown Pacific Grove. The unit was immaculate with all the features we needed for a week stay during Monterey Car Week. The three separate bedrooms are perfect for a family or two couples. We ended up cooking several meals in and had everything we needed in the kitchen including a grill on the back patio. Parking is right at the front door and the neighborhood is very safe. The only drawback is the busy street, but we didn't mind this.

I'm from the bay area and took my two middle school children to Monterey for Spring Break to check out the aquarium for a couple of days. This was a perfect spot to do that! It is within in walking distance to the main strip, yet far enough to be away from the crowds. The cottage is cute, well-decorated and extremely comfortable. We all had enough breathing room to recover at the end of a long day. Everything is very tasteful, is of high quality,, and has all the amenities you want in a high-end rental, including high speed Internet access, movie channels, beautiful kitchen.
In addition, the service is top notch. One of the smoke alarm batteries went out when we got there so it started chirping, and the maintenance person was there withing 10 minutes to fix it. He was extremely friendly and helpful, and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We also left a computer charger behind and they went out of their way to send it to us as soon as possible.
I highly recommend this rental -- we'll stay here again!
Cozy, Modern Cottage in a Great Location!
Reviewed by Rachel
We stayed at the Cannery Row Cottage for the New Years holiday - and even celebrated our engagement there! The space was "cozy" (small) and over-furnished for six adults and two children, but given the great location (three blocks from the aquarium and Cannery Row), all eight of us weren't together at the house much beyond meals and late evenings (when the kids were asleep).
The house was in perfect conition when we checked in (kudos to the housekeeping staff), and the kitchen was beautiful, well-stocked and a pleasure to cook in. Often there were two or three of us cooking at once and the open floor plan made it easy to visit.
We really appreciated little details being taken care of like the parking permits, extra set of keys, and stereo system. A group of us rented a house for a similar vacation last year, and everyone agreed that this property was a great improvement in nearly every way.
The only two things that could have been improved were: first, the bed in the upstairs room. Though I didn't sleep in it, I'm told that the bed upstairs was not comfortable. Second, the garbage cans outside were full when we arrived (probably because of the holiday trash collection schedule) which meant that, by the time we left, we were having to pile our trash and recycling next to the bins.
I think all of us would recommend this property to friends. We had a really comfortable stay!

The cottage met and exceeded or expectations. The accommodation had everything we needed, as if we were at our own home. My daughter and son enjoyed the short walk to Cannery Row, and the beach. The view of the bay from our front door was great. The only negative was the sleep number bed that my son could not get to work... He said the bed was too hard.
My daughter wanted to live in the cottage forever. I am sure that we would consider renting the house again in our next visit.
Thank you for providing such quality lodgings.
