Welcome to "Restful Refuge Guest House"! Guest unit sleeps up to 2 adults and 1 child; 2 bedroom, 2 bath main house (rented separately) sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children.

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

Escape to your own little island of tranquility in this 600-square-foot studio guest cottage that perfectly encapsulates Carmel's unique style of casual comfort and urbane sophistication. Situated in a lovely quiet residential area, it is just minutes from stunning white beaches and the many exciting shops and restaurants of downtown Carmel and environs.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately (see #3276 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for more information).

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.

Natural sisal and jute rugs over a wide-plank wood floor contribute to the upscale beach motif, with its white, chocolate brown, tan and sea-foam color scheme and bright, upbeat tone. Warm yourself by a cheery wood stove while you play games, read or watch a 46-inch LCD HD TV with dish network service from a cushy white couch with chaise and an ottoman coffee table.

If you choose, you can shop for fresh meats and seafood, fruits and veggies, gourmet cheeses, wines and pastries at nearby purveyors of local delicacies and prepare your own meals in the full-sized fully equipped white-tiled kitchen that has a flower-filled window box above the sink overlooking a lush wooded area. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. A dark wood drop-leaf dining table behind the couch is set up to seat 2 but can be expanded to accommodate up to four.

A king bed, which can be converted to 2 twins, is topped with memory foam and appointed with luxury linens and a generous supply of throw pillows. A closet and two Bombay bedside bureaus provide ample storage. A comfy couch with chaise can be used to sleep a child.

The spotless white-tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination.

“A Week Of Bliss And Relaxation In An Otherworldly Place
My girlfriend and I have just returned from an amazing, magical stay in the Restful Refuge Guest House in Carmel. It was perfect in every way, so tastefully decorated and furnished. We had such a wonderful time in the Guest House, and in exploring Carmel and Monterrey. From the Guest House, we walked into Carmel and Monterrey everyday, strolling along the beach or visiting Cannery Row. The property was well maintained and extraordinarily clean. Everything worked like a charm. Plus, the Property Manager was exceedingly helpful and friendly. She made us feel right at home. In fact, we felt like we were at home in the Guest House. We would definitely recommend this property to all our friends and family. And at the first opportunity to return to Carmel, the Guest House will definitely be on the top of our list of places to stay. Thank you.”

“Dreamsville By The Sea
The studio was perfect in many ways. Parking on the street was the only flaw. The peninsula offers so much to do and see. Our weather was out of this world. We will be back many times!”

Everything was wonderful. Spent the month there experiencing what it would be like to live in carmel. I felt as comfortable in the cottage as I do in my own home. Loved it”

Really lovely guest cottage had everything we needed for our stay. Quiet, comfortable, with a trail through a park not far away for runs. We enjoyed our stay.”

“Best Place To Stay In Carmel!
The staff at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is wonderful. They are friendly and make sure you are happy. The guest house is perfect for someone looking for a small but beautiful place to stay and a short drive to the beach. The decorating is so soothing and the place is full of light. I am so very thankful that Charlie, my dog, and I are welcomed there and the neighborhood is perfect for a nice quiet walk. I hope to make it next year too! This was my second year and loved it!"
