      Welcome to "Ocean View Sanctuary"!

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

      Tranquilizing views of Monterey Bay beckon from virtually every room in this lovely 1057 square feet 3-bedroom, 2-bath hilltop home nestled in a friendly Pacific Grove neighborhood within walking distance of the coastline and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The location is ideal, just blocks from downtown Pacific Grove shops and restaurants, and the 15-mile walking and bike trail that winds 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 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.

      A short flight of steps from the sidewalk takes you up to the front entrance. 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 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, gas fireplace, sofa, loveseat, a wooden coffee table and an antique bureau. Relax with popcorn and watch movies on a flat-screen TV. (Sorry, the piano in the photos is not available for guests’ use.) A telescope is provided for up-close looks at sailboats in the bay.

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

      The master bedroom, with a large window that looks out to the back deck, has a nautical theme with deep ocean blue and white patterned bedding on the king bed with foam topper, wooden end tables with tripod table lamps and an armchair. Bed can be made up as two twins.

      The master bath, with white and pale yellow tiles and navy blue towels, and has an enclosed shower.

      A second bedroom has a king bed with foam topper which can also be made into two twins, a white wooden dresser and bedside tables and table lamps with metal bases shaped like tree branches.

      The third bedroom has twin beds with sea foam blue quilted bed coverlets, sea-themed artwork, a white wooden dresser and bedside stands and blue ceramic table lamps. These twin beds can be made up together with a foam topper for a king if preferred.

      Additional sleeping possibilities include a day bed with a trundle to sleep two children located in the living room.

      An additional bathroom, also tiled in white and pale yellow, has a tub with a shower.

      Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

We are planning on coming back next year. Has a great fireplace and we decided to eat in, instead of going out to eat at restaurants, because the home was so great to relax at."  ~  Dave T. & Family

      "Beautiful views, great location!  This home was beautifully situated on a hill with sweeping views of the water. We loved how this home had ample space for us to spread out and the rooms were very comfortable. The property was clean but had ants in the bathrooms. I also thought the bathrooms needed more places to hang towels. The guest bathroom had a bath with glass sliding doors that were very fragile and seemed like they would fall off at any moment. The house had everything you could need, but I suggest bringing your own soap for the shower. I highly recommend the owner replace the current coffee maker with a Keurig. The property manager was easy to reach and helpful. We appreciated the welcome folder and visited many of the places listed. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely book this home again!"  ~  E.

Gorgeous view of Monterey Bay, and a telescope to zoom in! Parking on the street...and everything you need to make a group dinner or cook out on the grill. There was nothing we needed that we didn't find. Even laundry detergent! Appliances were all top notch. LOVED IT."

      “Family Reunion Includes A Sweet Stay In Monterey!  Our rental was wonderfully decorated in beach fun yet a touch of elegance was included. Our 6 year old granddaughter loved the humming birds in the back yard and we watched 3 young seagulls learn to fly off. We found the kitchen cabinets and drawers stocked with any dishes utility tools and pans for baking or BBQing anyone would possibly need. The beds were comfortable and several games were provided. We had a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and a boat lighted brightly for night fishing. We watched intently using the [telescope] provided by the homeowner. We had a marvelous time and wished our stay could have been longer.”

      “Loved Our Stay At The Ocean View Home!!!  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.”

This home comes with the option of setting up the beds as Kings or can separate 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!”

There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for our group - 6 adults and 1 3 year old. We were greeted with wine, cheese, and crackers and a table 'set for company.' The kitchen was clean and held plenty of everything to make meals and such right there. We could easily walk to downtown Pacific Grove, the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row area, the Monterey wharfs, and the beautiful walking/jogging/biking trails. We were here for a family wedding, so a lot of our time revolved around those activities, but we enjoyed meals on the ocean front, trips to the yogurt shop, and chowder on the wharf. We would recommend this home to anyone.”
