Welcome to “Carmel Point Beach Cottage!”

**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

From this delightful Carmel cottage some of the Monterey Peninsula's finest attractions are so close by that you won't even need to start up your car.

Within a few minutes by foot you can arrive at the historic and picturesque Carmel Mission or stop in at Clint Eastwood's famed Mission Ranch with its pastoral views, exuberant piano-bar sing-alongs and renowned brunches or you can take a picnic to Carmel River Beach, beloved by locals for its fresh-water lagoon on one side (a perfect place for bird-watching and for children to safely splash in the water) and the sparkling blue Pacific on the other. The shops, boutiques, restaurants and cultural life of Carmel-by-the Sea are just a short 5-minute drive away.

Sheltered behind a tall hedge in a quiet residential neighborhood, this delightful 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,500-square-foot property, has a beach-cottage feel with hardwood floors, freshly painted walls, a color scheme of sea-foam blues, tans and whites, comfy furniture, and a seashore theme that will help you quickly fall into the relaxing coastal rhythms of the Monterey Peninsula.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, 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, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

As soon as you enter the private brick front courtyard filled with azaleas, camellias and roses you will let go of your cares and begin to deeply unwind.

You can smell the ocean just a few blocks away and feel the cool breezes. A blue door opens to the living room, with its vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace, comfortable furnishings and wood floors accented with decorative rugs. Overstuffed chairs and a sleeper sofa with white Pottery-Barn-style slipcovers and colorful pillows create a relaxed setting for great conversation or watching a movie on the flat screen TV. A pair of sliding French doors off the living room lead to a fenced-in back patio colorfully landscaped with native plants and flowers and a small kitchen garden with herbs. A table with 6 chairs and a gas grill are provided for al fresco dining. Beautiful new dishes, placemats, tablecloths, napkins and serving pieces are provided allowing for easy yet elegant entertaining in either the indoor or outdoor dining areas.

The well-equipped kitchen, with its freshly painted white cabinetry and blue countertops, includes a gas range, a double-wide refrigerator, dishwasher and top-quality cookware.

The master bedroom, in colors of robin's-egg blue and sea-foam green, features a California king bed with memory foam topper that can be converted into two twins if desired. A second bedroom has a king that can also be converted into two twins. Additional sleeping for children is provided by a full-sized sleeper sofa with memory foam topper in the living room. A full bath with spa amenities and an ample supply of towels is located near both main bedrooms.

A separate bedroom/bathroom suite has its own entrance and features a double bed, a twin day bed/futon and a flat screen TV. It also has its own wood deck with a bistro table and chairs. All beds are appointed with luxury linens.

The property, which is completely enclosed by a grape-stake fence, includes a one-car garage and a paved driveway long enough for two extra cars. Plenty of additional street parking is available.
Washer and dryer are provided.

“Carmel Point Beach Cottage - Summer 2014
Family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teens stayed at the Carmel Point Beach Cottage and the home was exactly at described. The beds were comfortable. And the backyard is beautifully landscaped and very private.
The home was well appointed, nicely finished, and the home is even nicer than the pictures show. And the location of the home is very convenient to all the things that mattered to us; 5 minute walk to two beaches and a 10 minute walk to downtown Carmel. Everything in the house was in good working order.  Dealing with the property manager was completely hassle-free.  We had a great vacation!”

“Canadian Family Gathers In The Carmel Beach House To Run The Big [Sur International Marathon]
It started out as a thought to run a marathon and then we decided lets make it a family holiday as we all live across the vast country of Canada in three different cities. When looking for a home I came across this Carmel beach house with the wonderful outdoor space, outdoor bbq, nicely decorated place and thought it would fit our family was perfect and it was better than the pictures. Everyone had their own sleeping area and my son and his wife with the new baby had this wonderful guest room where they could be and not worry about waking anyone else during night time feedings.The dining areas and living room were great gathering places for all of us. The house has everything you need for a wonderful stay including a wagon to take your beach chairs and towels down to the beach to watch the gorgeous sunset, an assortment of spices, plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Having a washer and dryer was also very helpful after the race. We were greated by a lovely fresh bouquet of flowers and welcome wine and appetizers.We could walk everywhere to the finish line of the race, to the town center as well as to the large Safeway in the other direction and only blocks from the amazing beach.The area around our place was beautiful and lush with flowers and greenery. A sweet change from the snow we left behind. Our children commented this was one of their best family holidays and are talking about returning for next years race. Marilyn at Sanctuary Vacations was very efficient and helpful right to the end when looking for left items.Thankyou for sharing this lovely home with our family.”

“Convenient And Comfortable
We had a wonderful time at the Carmel home. The location was really convenient, as it was walking distance to two special beaches, and also to the magical Mission Ranch in Carmel. We'd highly recommend it!”

“Wonderful House!!!!!
What a wonderful house!!!!! Everything was EXACTLY as described if not better, the pictures don't do it justice!! It was cozy, comfortable and lots of space. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, the living room is great and the back patio was such a treat. The best part was our terrific house manager who saved the day by providing a pack & play for our son to sleep in (at no additional charge!!) just a couple of days before we arrived. We will absolutely come back. I highly recommend this house and any others that Sanctuary Rentals is offering, they were very easy and accommodating. Thank you for everything, it made a great trip even that much better!!!!”

“Fantastic Location And Accommodation
This house has a truly wonderful location, within a short walking distance of Carmel State River Beach as well the main Carmel beach. In addition it is an easy walk to Mission Inn Ranch, where we enjoyed 2 fabulous dinners on the patio watching the sheep in the meadow below and the sea and sunset in the distance. Simply serene. The house itself was cute and wonderfully comfortable. It had everything you could want from hairdryers in each bedroom to spices and herbs in the backyard. We felt so lucky to be able to stay in such a serene place. Marietta the house manager was very friendly, helpful and efficient. This is a truly wonderful vacation venue. Highly recommended. We will be returning.”

“Carmel Point Beach Cottage:
We loved staying at the cottage for our 37th anniversary with our grown children. To the person, they all loved the house and the location to the beach and the downtown. Your contact person was extremely quick to respond to any question or need that we had and went out of her way to get an anniversary cake for my wife. We would not hesitate to book this beach cottage again when we decide to return.”

“Great Relaxing Stay At Carmel Beach House
We were lucky to stay at this property for an entire month. Our experience from start to finish was great. The photos are exactly what you can expect! Kitchen was very functional and had everything you would need for cooking.  The 'guest suite' off the deck was a bonus, as our guests had their own private 'quarters' fully equipped with washroom, sitting area and TV. The backyard with its completely private yard was also fantastic! Our kids had a blast on the beach that was literally a 5 minute walk away, as well as the park that was even closer. Town was approx. 15-20 min. walk. Only negatives included a BBQ that really didn't work very well...but that was it! Highly recommend this property!”

We arrived to a warm and inviting cottage a few blocks from the beach. Everything we needed was at our fingertips and just so comfortable. We have found a place to return to, again and again.”

“Great House For A Relaxing Stay
Lovely home, well appointed. The back yard is fully fenced in so it was perfect for our two canine kids. The home is clean and conveniently located to a dog-friendly beach, and only a short drive to downtown. Great vacation spot and truly relaxing.”

“Beautiful Retreat!
We just got back from our 5 day stay in this beautiful beach cottage. It felt as if we were staying in a house that was featured in Coastal Living magazine!! So much attention to detail in the design and decoration. Every need was met from organic bath soaps, designer beach towels & supplies, embroidered bath robes, to pet bowls, you really thought of everything a house guest could need. We felt right at home. In fact, we wished we could have moved in and truly made it our home! The cottage is just a short walk from two separate beaches- each unique and absolutely gorgeous. It is also just a quick five minute drive up to the grocery store and many great restaurants. Both of our young girls (ages 3 and 5) loved every minute and had tears when we had to leave asking if we could come back again to this house next year. I sure hope so! Thanks for an amazing vacation!”

“Lovely Spot
This house was all it was described to be, and then some! We loved our stay---walking to the beach every day, enjoying the backyard in the afternoons, and sleeping very well in the great master bedroom at night. Carmel is gorgeous, and the home made our trip extra special. Thanks for the hospitality!”
