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.

Experience the vintage charm of Pacific Grove while enjoying all the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century in this beautiful two-story, Victorian-style home built in 2002.

Relax on the deck off the master bedroom, or outside on one of two front porches: you can really spread out in this comfortable home with hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a unique "sun tower" at the top of the stairs. This den/office area, with a wet bar and under-counter refrigerator, is everyone's favorite place to read, chat, or just enjoy the view overlooking this charming neighborhood.

Cherry wood cabinets and a lovely tin ceiling add warmth and charm to the well-equipped kitchen, and the open floor plan can be "zoned" by doors separating the kitchen from the dining area and the living room from the entry way. An instant gas log fireplace in the living room adds ambiance while you enjoy a good book or a movie on cable TV/DVD (available in both the downstairs living room and the upstairs bedrooms).

All three bedrooms are carpeted and located on the second floor (14 steps up to the bedrooms). The master bedroom, decorated in soft tones of rose and green, has a queen-size bed and a private bath with a stall shower. A second guestroom has a queen-size bed; the third has two twins. The guest bath features a shower over tub, and there's another half bath downstairs.

The location makes this Victorian-style home one of our most popular accommodations in Pacific Grove. Upon arrival, you may just want to park your car in the spacious two-car garage and forget about it! Just a block from downtown, you are within easy walking distance of Pacific Grove’s quaint shops, restaurants, the Farmer's Market, and the scenic coastline recreation trail.

If you feel energetic, walk along the coastal trail to the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, exactly one mile from the front door. Along the way, observe marine life - sea lions, seals, otters, and shorebirds. Also within easy walking distance: a grocery store, bakeries, library, post office, ice cream parlor, coffee shops, visitor's center, museum, movie theater, bookstore, parks, playground, and boutiques. (If you prefer, there is bus service just a block away that will take you to the Aquarium and Cannery Row, downtown Monterey and Asilomar Beach.)

If you are a golf enthusiast, bring your clubs! The Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is just a half mile away, and a short drive will take you to the world-famous links at Pebble Beach. Don’t miss the boutiques and galleries of Carmel, and on a sunny day, take Highway 1 down the coast to Big Sur. (Mmmm, lunch at Nepenthe – an Ambrosia Burger and a basket of their famous fries!)

Loved, loved, loved the Gingerbread House!

Stayed here for 10 days and loved every minute! Situated just a block from Lighthouse Avenue, the Gingerbread House had the perfect location for us to walk to restaurants, shops and Lovers Point.... and further if so desired. I managed a walk most mornings to Cannery Row along the waterfront or Pinot Point Lighthouse-- each within a mile or mile and a half from the house. Be sure to check out the Pacific Grove Farmers' Market on Mondays-- just a few blocks away on Central Ave.The house is well maintained and had all the amenities one would want for a vacation of this length-- plenty of linens, full kitchen with laundry, fully stocked bathrooms including a downstairs powder room. Add fast internet and cable TV with Netflix-- this was the perfect home away from home. (I would note that I packed a hair dryer since none was listed in the description-- but the Gingerbread House had two--one in each of the upstairs bathrooms.) My ONLY complaint is that at night a lot of light filtered into the master bedroom, which had sliding doors off the porch. There were opaque blinds on the other bedrooms that I wish were on the master bedroom too.It was so enjoyable to sit on any of the 3 porches and people watch. We could see the Red House Grill from the house-- you'll want to have breakfast, lunch or weekend brunch there. Yum!The Gingerbread House made a wonderful visit perfect. I'd highly recommend and look forward to our return visit.

We had a wonderful stay in Pacific Grove, during the month of July, 2018. The house is beautiful and was supplied with everything we needed for a week’s stay, The proximity to both the beach and town was perfect. We enjoyed coffee every day from Crema and/or the bookstore. We had take-out several times from Red House Cafe and shopped at the garden shop below. We visited the pets at the animal shelter nearly every day and shopped at Monnarch Knitting, also. Thepeople of Pacific Grove are super friendly and our stay was extremely relaxing.

We had a wonderful 10 days at the Gingerbread house with kids and grandkids. Lots of rooms for sleeping and playing. Having 3 bathrooms was great, as was the spacious, well equipped kitchen. We spent part of each day at the close by park as well as daily walks along the beach. We liked being close to restaurants and the movie theatre. We all enjoyed multiple trips to the aquarium. We loved everything!

Our family of four adults and three teens spent four nights at the Gingerbread house. The place was fabulous! The location was perfect for traveling south to Carmel, Monterey county wineries and points south of San Francisco. Everything about the house was exactly as advertised on Homeaway. Would definitely recommend this place with 5 stars!

We stayed in this house for three days last week and it was really nice. The location was excellent, walking distance to downtown Pacific Grove, stores etc. It was nice having so much space and the price was reasonable for the size house. It was my first VRBO experience and I was a little surprised by the hidden costs and the deposit that I didn't pay attention to when we booked the house but overall it all worked out. I would definitely stay there again. The management company was great too.

We love Pacific Grove.

We loved the Gingerbread House! It is a beautiful home. The location is perfect. The neighborhood is lovely. And it is a short walk to the ocean. Everything we needed was provided. The kitchen was well-stocked with all we needed for cooking meals. We were impressed with the quality of the linens and towels. The furniture and the accents were pretty, warm and inviting. We loved our first visit to Monterey and hope to come back again. Thank you for offering up this fantastic home. (One tip: Check the local calendar when booking your stay in Monterey. There was a marathon scheduled on the day we departed and we had to leave the property very early in the morning due to road closures.)

Thank you for an amazing stay at Gingerbread house. It was our first visit to America, and after a hectic time visiting Las Vegas and Los Angeles, a week relaxing in Pacific Grove was wonderful.

The Aquarium was a highlight and we managed a day trip to San Francisco and Alcatraz. Swimming and renting kayaks at Lover's Point beach was great because we saw an otter and seal. We went whale watching from Monterey wharf. Our favourite place to eat was the beachhouse at Lover's point. The nearby playground was handy for our little one.

It is so easy to walk to all the local neighbourhood facilities including a 3 screen cinema!

We traveled to Santa Cruz boardwalk for an evening which was easy and fun.

The house was lovely but it took us a while to work the washing machine as we did not have instructions. The garage was really good for the car and meant we could leave any sandy shoes in there. We played chess and checkers in the lounge and we loved the sun tower for morning coffee and reading. The kids liked the cupboard under the suntower.

Booking, key pickup and payment online went smoothly thanks to Monterey Property Rentals. A very efficient service.

We rented the house for my family coming from Spain for five days. When picking up the keys from the main office, it was easy since they left them in an envelope with information about both the house and outdoor activities in Monterey. The house had everything needed and there was enough space for the five of them (there is even a sofa bed ) Two of the bathrooms clogged the first day, we called and In less than a couple of hours they fixed them. The house is located in a nice neighborhood and it only takes a couple of minutes to get to the rec trail. Also, pacific grove has plenty of cute stores and cafes where you can roam around. Regarding the deposit, it is insignificant compared with other places we looked into. The only inconvenient that we saw was that the office closes by four and during the weekend it is also closed. Having said that, we wouldn't be able to have a look at the house until we checked in. However, the pictures posted in the website are the ones you find whe you get there and I have to say that they are amazing. One of the bedrooms gets really hot because it has three windows and since the early morning the sun is already hitting. I fully recommend the place to anyone who is looking for a quite place and liked small charming cities

My sisters and I had a wonderful visit. The house was well-stocked, the rooms attractive and comfortable. We were even able to host our family for Christmas Eve. The location is fantastic, a block from Lovers' Point and a block from Lighthouse avenue in PG. The only negative was that third bedroom had only children's beds, not even full-sized twin beds. No adult (and we were all adults) would be comfortable sleeping in them.
