Escape to the perfect beach cottage. Quaint and contemporary marry seamlessly in this updated 860-sq-ft Carmel home located within walking distance of the village and minutes by car to the beach. This sea-themed 2-bedroom, 2-bath, situated in a quiet tree-lined neighborhood, combines the coziness of a cottage with a modern upscale Pottery Barn sophistication.

Enter the property through a vine-covered arch into an enclosed front area with a brick path and driveway bordered with flowering plants. Two wrought-iron chairs with comfortable cushions provide a private place to relax on the front porch and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee during Carmel’s wonderful cool mornings and evenings.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

An open floor plan imparts a spacious feeling to the combined living-dining room, which feature a granite-faced gas fireplace with pitched beamed ceilings, Hubbardton Forge artisan light fixtures and hardwood floors. A 40-inch HD LCD TV mounted over the fireplace allows you to watch a movie with the Blue Ray DVD and enjoy a fire at the same time. An earthy palette of sage green, tan and sea-foam blue is offset by crisp white furnishings – sofa, arm chair and an ottoman serving as a coffee table. Chenille throw pillows with starfish designs, distressed side tables and sea-themed art all help create a beach cottage feel.

A renovated contemporary chef’s dream kitchen is a showpiece with its black Corian counter-tops, beautiful walnut cabinetry and top-quality appliances including a gas range and stainless steel side-by side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. A generous selection of dishware and table linens allow you to entertain as if you were at home. Dine 48-inch round table with a mahogany top and sage scroll legs that seats four. A sunlit breakfast nook off the kitchen has a white bistro table and bench alongside a bay window, perfect for 2 people to sit and relax over morning tea or coffee and croissants. Two metal counter stools provide another eating spot at the kitchen counter.

A spotless remodeled bathroom with shower is just off the kitchen as is a stacking washer and dryer.

The living room and bedrooms are bathed in light from French doors that open to a wraparound deck with outdoor furnishings that include a teak table that can seat 8 and a gas grill. The deck overlooks an enclosed private pet-friendly back yard with roses and other flowering plants. You are beautifully set up to entertain or just lie back, relax and breathe in the fresh ocean air.

The master bedroom has a king with memory foam topper fitted with luxury linens and an ocean-themed duvet comforter in ivory and ocean-reef colors. The king can be converted to 2 twins.

A second bedroom has a white cottage day bed with an ivory, sage green and aqua blue accents. The daybed with trundle can stay a single or be made up as 2 twins or a king with memory foam topper.

The sparkling remodeled full bathroom near both bedrooms has a shower-over-tub, old-fashioned beadboard wainscoting, brushed nickel fixtures and sand-colored limestone tile on the floor and around the tub. Plush white spa towels with sage-green accents complete the picture.

Parking for 1 car in a carport and a second in the driveway; additional on-street parking available for 1-2 more cars.

“We Found Peace Of Mind At Peace Of Mind
Peace of Mind in Carmel is a charming cottage offering comfort, location and ease. We loved our stay here, easily walking to shops, restaurants and the beach! The cottage itself is well stocked with everything you'll need including a great, well equipped kitchen. Lovely outdoor space is tranquil and relaxing with beautiful foliage which enhances privacy. We travel frequently and often find ourselves not sleeping as well as we would like…not the case at Peace of Mind! Incredibly comfortable bedding, including memory foam mattress toppers, combined with the extreme quiet of Carmel is the perfect formula for great sleep! Sanctuary Vacation Rentals' house manager, Kim C. was kind, responsive and helpful, sharing information making our assimilation into the community easy! She coordinated a small repair and mid-stay cleaning seamlessly.” Peace of Mind is a great choice if you want a cozy cottage experience which is comfortable and easy. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals seems well organized making the entire process simple. Carmel by the Sea is a place you may find your bliss! We'll be back!”

“Home Away From Home...
Sanctuary by the Sea in Carmel was a wonderful rental experience. The owners allow well behaved dogs on the property, the layout of the house is cozy and easy to move about through. It was clean inside and out with well equipped kitchen & bathrooms. Much more than I expected ... 
Whether you are looking for a quiet get away alone or with family & friends, Sanctuary by the Sea in Carmel had all of the home details covered for an effortless stay.”

We've been renting vacation homes since the late 1980's, but this was, by far, the best rental. Easiest check-in, with wine and cheese, greeting us, as we walked in the door. The house was spotless and there were plenty of supplies(toilet paper, soap, pillows, blankets, etc.). Great children's drawer with games and books, and we really enjoyed the aquarium passes! Super fun and relaxing vacation! Thanks, Sanctuary Vacation Rentals!”

“Completely Relaxed
Our stay in this lovely home was one of the most enjoyable vacations that we have ever taken. The home itself was very well appointed, clean, and within walking distance to downtown Carmel.  We will recommend this home to our friends
wanting to stay in Carmel.  Once again, thank you for the wonderful holiday.”

“All The Comforts Of Home
This was our first experience ever in a vacation rental and it was very positive. We thought that the house was extremely beautiful and clean. We now know who to call when we want to stay in Carmel again. The beds were very comfortable and all the appliances worked properly. The home was better stocked than our own home.  It was nice to be able to walk downtown for dinner and shopping due to the location of the rental.  We want to thank you again for the enjoyable vacation.”
