      Descripton

      Tranquilizing views of Monterey Bay beckon from virtually every room in this lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath hilltop home nestled in a friendly Pacific Grove neighborhood within walking distance of the coastline and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

      The location is ideal, just blocks from downtown Pacific Grove, with its delightful assemblage of shops and restaurants, and the 7-mile walking and bike trail the wends along the shoreline. Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach are all less than a 10-minute drive away; Big Sur about 45 minutes.

      Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, local organic coffee to start your mornings 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 bathrobes, oversized towels and everything you need for a day at the beach.

      A short flight of steps from the sidewalk takes you up to the front entrance and a panelled hallway with a bedroom on the right and the living room on the left. A long, narrow balcony runs along the front of the house affording a spot to breathe in the fresh ocean air and watch the gulls and pelicans soar over the blue waters of the Monterey Bay.

      The house combines nostalgic '50s architectural touches – such as lots of built-in wood cabinets – with sophisticated contemporary seashore-themed décor in ocean blues and browns set off by crisp whites. The panelled living room, which has stunning bay views, features wall-to-wall windows, a beamed vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace, a sofa, loveseat, a wooden coffee table and an antique bureau. Serenade your loved ones or enjoy a family singalong at a grand piano. Relax with popcorn and watch movies on a flat-screen TV.

      An adjacent open dining room, also with gorgeous bay views, has a wooden table and chairs for 6.

      A telescope is provided for up-close looks at sailboats in the bay. A bank of built-in cabinets (with a pass through window to the kitchen) provide storage for table linens, games and puzzles. Prepare gourmet meals in a handsome kitchen that has a sand-colored tile floor, white tile counter-tops, wooden cabinets and a central work station with a built-in electric stove top. Other appliances include an oven, dishwasher and microwave. Breakfast or casual meals can be enjoyed at a square oak table with 4 Windsor chairs. A nook with a washer and dryer is nearby. A back door leads to an enclosed patio -- partially framed in glass to let in the water views -- equipped with a picnic table and grill. Flowering plants such as primula, camellias and roses provide bright spots of color.

      The master bedroom, with a large window that looks out to the lush plants on the back deck, has a nautical theme with deep ocean blue and white patterned coverlet and pillows on the king bed, wooden end tables with tripod table lamps and an armchair. The master bath, with white and pale yellow tiles and navy blue towels, and has an enclosed shower.

      A second bedroom has a king has 2 coverlets, one white and one turquoise blue, a white wooden dresser and bedside tables and table lamps with metal bases shaped like tree branches.

      The third bedroom has twin beds with seafoam blue quilted bed coverlets, encaustic sea-themed artwork, a white wooden dresser and bedside stands and blue ceramic table lamps. An additional bathroom, also tiled in white and pale yellow, has a tub with a shower.

      One car can be parked in the driveway. On-street parking also available. Note: There is a separate studio rental on the lower level of the house that is not included and may be occupied during your stay. Pets are welcome.

      Loved our stay at the Ocean View home!!!

      Maria C. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property
      Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2014
      We rented the Ocean View home for 4 nights to celebrate our 35th anniversary and spend our annual 4th of July weekend in Monterey. We were delighted from the moment we walked into the house. The pictures on the web-site do not do the home justice. It is much more beautiful and spacious in person. There were 7 adults and a toddler. The home was immaculate and spacious. And, the view of the beautiful Monterey bay just took our breath away. The first evening we had extended family, also staying in Monterey, join us for dinner. The children loved looking out into the ocean through the telescope. We cooked dinner in the spacious kitchen with views of the ocean. Everything we could possibly need was provided, included beach chairs which we took to the beach for a bon fire one evening. An easy walk to Cannery Row, we strolled there for fish and chips lunch. The decor is tasteful and we loved the colors used throughout the home. Also, loved the positive and inspiring quotes throughout the home. It was easy to relax and enjoy our time together. We have spent every 4th of July in Monterey for the past 20 years. This was the best! We hope staying in this beautiful home will become a yearly tradition for our family. Robin and staff at Sanctuary vacation rentals are generous with the amenities provided and the cleanliness of the home was a AAA++. Only complaint is that our stay went by too fast, leaving our beautiful sanctuary was difficult.

      Tennis Weekend away for 7!

      Meg F. from Orinda, CA recommends this property
      Stayed 3 days in May, 2014
      What a terrific place to stay for our tennis weekend. We had 7 ladies aged 40+ stay in this wonderfully located home with fantastic views of the ocean! This home comes with the option of setting up the beds as Kings or can seperate the beds into twins--what a clever idea and oh so flexible for guests. Overall nice home with lots of charm and location was great--nothing was ever more than a mile or two away. Many thanks for a great stay!

      Beautiful view,

      A Guest from Carmichael, CA does not recommends this property
      Stayed 5 days in Apr, 2014
      The home while well kept, had an "old/stuffy" smell. That was not such a big deal, but we just felt we didn't get the value based on what it cost. After the non-refundable fees, deposits, taxes etc the quoted $300. per night became $500. Yep, it cost us $2500.00 for 5 nights. Wasn't worth that.
      The $6. Easter plant left for us was a nice touch, but it was addressed as "dear guest"; so impersonal. It was the same salutation on the welcome note. Would not have taken much effort to actually look at the last name on the reservation.

      Property not fully vetted

      A Guest from Atherton, CA does not recommends this property
      Stayed 3 days in Mar, 2014
      Difficult to sleep with ordor of waste water in Master Bedroom. Not a backup, probably a venting issue, waste water, or vety old plumbing. Beautiful, old well-crafted house, but very poor lighting, with too loud transformers to light flourescents. Too many non-functional windows, e.g. broken but not repaired. Reported all to managment person with no response, or follow up, or compensation for substandard,$500.00/night rental

      Dog-friendly in Pacific Grove

      Margaret S. from Orinda, CA recommends this property
      Stayed 2 days in Mar, 2014
      This lovely house was spotless and an easy walk to the ocean, but it was the fenced back yard that we most appreciated with our dogs. Great location and a fun visit to Pacific Grove.
