About Erlinda and Chuck Hiscock

We're Erlinda and Chuck, and we live on the beautiful California coast in Big Sur. An artist and a builder, together we've created a sweet home here.

We're a couple that loves to travel and have stayed at many VRBO's. We know what it's like to feel welcomed and have a comfortable house to enjoy and feel at home in while we're on vacation.

We are so happy to have the opportunity to share this family home with fellow travelers!

Erlinda and Chuck Hiscock purchased this house in 1980

Why Erlinda and Chuck Hiscock chose Pacific Grove

Chuck has always been interested in restoring houses. He searched high and low until he found this house with good bones. He bought the house with his mother and brother in 1980 and lovingly restored it. It has always been very well cared for since then. After renovations were finished on the Craftsman, we bought a Victorian that we restored to become an award winner from the Pacific Grove Heritage Society.

What makes this house unique

We love the slow pace of this town, and Chuck was drawn to this Craftsman house, because he feels the style honors a good builders love of his craft.

Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a 3-day weekend in mid-April. The weather was fantastic and the location ideal for walking and driving to nearby activities. Above all, the rental was perfection. With a cute antique vibe, perfect for a few friends to have a weekend away. Owners made the process super smooth and clear on how to check-in and out. Kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms had everything we needed for all six of us to feel comfortable.

Pacific Grove: a Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent two comfortable days at Pacific Grove with our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. The home was very pleasant, in a great walkable location and in a wonderful area. I would certainly recommend it.

Lovely home in great locale!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay in Pacific Grove. Erlinda’s house is in a excellent location. You can walk down to the water to do an amazing trail along the ocean where I saw seals playing, sea lions sun bathing, and otters swimming. We also walked to The Red House Cafe for a super yummy breakfast and to Passionfish for an equally fab sustainable seafood dinner w an impressive wine list. Good base, as well, for our day trips to Big Sur, Big Basin Redwood State Park, Point Lobos, the Aquarium (they have free passes!), and Carmel. The house had everything we need. I loved, too, that you can’t hear between the two bedrooms; so I could get up and not wake my friend. We stayed 5 nights and it was perfect.

What a location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely weekend and walked everywhere! Aquarium, Lover’s Cove, restaurants... didn’t have to get in the car once. The home was clean and the decor was charming. Not a home for wild children, unruly pets or sloppy adults.

Well appointed house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Erlinda's house. The property is cosy but had all the amenities we needed for a really comfortable stay. The house itself is beautiful and the artwork inside made it even lovelier. It's a short walk to shops and Lover's Point Beach, and a short drive to downtown Monterey.
