      Descripton

      Welcome to "Gingerbread House Guest Suite"! Upper level 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite sleeps up to four adults.

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

      The spotless newly renovated 750-square-foot, 2-bedroom guest quarters can sleep 4 guests and can be rented together with the first floor of the main house or separately (see #3343 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for further information about the lower level, 1700 square feet 3 bedroom, 1 bath main suite). Please note that 4 is the maximum number of guests for this upper level suite if rented separately from the main house.

      Gaze out into the distance over tree and rooftops to the brilliant blue waters of Monterey Bay from this sunlit second-floor aerie in a lovely traditional house located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove.

      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, spa robes and beach gear.

      This light-washed dwelling has a combined living/dining room, 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and a surprisingly large kitchen with a long white table that doubles as extra counter space or a spot to pull up a stool and converse with the cook. With its color scheme of bright and creamy whites, the kitchen includes an electric stove, microwave and refrigerator (no dishwasher). Built-in cabinetry offers plenty of storage. Al fresco meals can be prepared on a separate charcoal grill and enjoyed at a wooden table and benches in a nook bordered by a hedge just off the front lawn downstairs.

      The décor, with its photographs of playful otters and palette of crisp whites, sandy beiges and turquoise blues and greens, has a beach-cottage quality that imparts a relaxed, get-away feel.

      From your seat on a cozy love seat, you can look up from reading one of the numerous inspirational books provided and watch the bay in the distance. Enjoy the same view as you take your meals at a round glass-topped dining table and chairs that seat 4 in the opposite corner. Should you prefer to be entertained electronically, a 42-inch flat-screen HDTV LED and BluRay is provided. The living room also has a comfortable chaise perfect for reading or watching movies and TV.

      The master bedroom features a king bed with white shutter headboard, memory foam topper and high quality spa linens.
      The second bedroom, with a trio of half-paned windows overlooking the front lawn, also features a king with memory foam topper and luxurious linens and a built-in chest of drawers.
      If preferred, the king beds in both rooms can be converted to twins.

      The full bathroom, with its recently updated look, features a fresh white tile and vanity. You will find vibrant turquoise and white plush towels, spa robes and slippers that will make you feel totally pampered.

      If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.

      The many delights of Pacific Grove's shops and restaurants, are within easy walking distance, as is the stunning rocky shoreline of Monterey Bay with its pedestrian and bike trail that extends for miles. The popular destinations of historic Monterey and the artist colony of Carmel-by-the-Sea are 10 minutes away by car.

      There is no washer and dryer, if renting the upstairs alone. If renting both units, a washer and dryer is available downstairs.

      "Lovely Hideaway
      We wanted to take the children to the Aquarium and the beach. So we settled on staying in Pacific Grove because it's dead center to everything. Then we decided to stay in a house, and Gingerbread was available. We didn't know what to expect but this little rental had it all.
      It was so clean you could eat off any floor in the house. It had so many towels and blankets we didn't begin to use them all. It had a fully equipped kitchen. No dish washer, but I love getting my hands in hot water so that was not an issue for us. They leave complimentary wine, cheese and crackers that were delicious. Then the location... It's walking distance to shopping, restaurants and parks... It's in a lovely neighborhood with so many other walkers you can't help but say 'hello' and stop to chat a bit. It was perfect, we totally enjoyed our stay."

      We spent 4 nights here with my sister and her husband and had a really wonderful time. The upper apartment we rented was spacious, very well-appointed, spotlessly clean and in a great location. We were only a short walk from the sea front and local shops and only a few miles from Monterey and Carmel. Would definitely recommend the property and hope to come again.”

      We loved to rent a stay with Sanctuary Vacation Rental. They were very professional sending us all the directions to get, to enter and to use all the facilities of this lovely and cozy Gingerbread House. We also found at this friendly place all we need to go to the beach and to cook our meals. Very clean and warming bed linens, blankets and towels. We strongly recommend it.”

      We had a lovely 10 day stay in this apartment. The location is very close the center of PG, everything in walking distance. It was clean and inviting upon arrival, even a tray of cheese, crackers and wine waiting! Everything from the decor, the very comfortable beds to the free Aquarium passes was wonderful. We were travelling with a 2 year old and the apartment was great for a child. We were also so thankful that we were able to check in and out a according to our flights, thank you Julia (manager) for making the travel with a small child that much easier. The attention to detail to create a loving home away from home was great. Our favourite restaurants in the area are Henry's Grill (best BBQ), Peppers and The Fishwife.

      My husband, kids and I stayed at this lovely spot over Spring Break. PG tends to be our home away from home, and we were so happy about the location. We could walk a couple blocks and be in the PG town center in under 5 mins. We walked to our favorite restaurants, book shop and in 10 mins you can be at the water front. Great spot, with a great kitchen, wonderful beds and linens (can't say enough about how fresh, fluffy and comfy the bed spreads were!). Everything was clean and lovely. Great spot!”

      My sister and I rented both the upper and lower guest suites of this home for our multi-family visit to Pacific Grove. We found each suite to be perfectly arranged - neat, quaint, comfortable, stocked with necessities (e.g., electric candles, soap for laundry and clean-up after meals, kitchens equipped, beach-fun chairs/towels, etc - we even had AMPLE flashlights and lanterns for when the electricity went out in the city for a few hours - we were SO impressed!) My family would happily rent the upper or the lower suites again, or both together for a large family retreat. The location was perfect as it is accessible to Monterey, Cannery Row, PG and Carmel -. We also found the property management team to be very helpful during our stay.... thank you for hosting us!!”
