Welcome to "Restful Refuge"!

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

Imagine yourself lounging on a spacious wooden deck watching a luminous sunset on the horizon over the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and you get a foretaste of what to expect from this utterly charming 1,200-square-foot home situated in a lovely Carmel neighborhood.

Bright and cheerful with a wood burning fireplace and hardwood floors throughout, this secluded 2-bedroom 2-bath indoor/outdoor house is surrounded by lush gardens on a large enclosed property. A delightful guest studio cottage that sleeps 2-3 can be rented together with the main house or separately (obtain further information at #3292 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website).

The ocean and Point Lobos are visible from the living room, deck and master bedroom. The upbeat Pottery Barn beach décor, with its white, chocolate and robin's-egg-blue color scheme and seashore-themed accents, will lift your spirits, making you eager to return to your home base after exploring the surrounding sights. Everything you will want to see and do is nearby. It is a short walk to Carmel River Beach (a local favorite) and the Carmel Mission, and minutes by car to the shops and galleries of downtown Carmel and the chic Crossroads and Barnyard shopping areas near the mouth of Carmel Valley. Monterey and Pacific Grove are a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur is half an hour away.

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.

The outdoors is as much a draw as the indoors in this special home. A large deck off the living room and master bedroom is equipped with 3 teak loungers and an outdoor table with green shade umbrella for enjoying evening cocktails or al fresco meals overlooking the private, fenced garden.

As you enter the front door and walk into the cozy combined living and dining room, you will see the lovely garden and ocean views. French doors open out to the deck. When you're not mesmerized by the vista, you can play cards, watch the flat-screen TV with Blue-Ray DVD or socialize in the cheery space, which includes a plush full sofa bed facing a whitewashed wood-burning fireplace, an overstuffed chair and a round glass table with upholstered chairs that seat 4.

A fully equipped kitchen with oak cabinetry has a gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. Grab a light breakfast before heading out on your day's adventures.

Wake in the morning after a tranquil night's sleep to ocean views from the master bedroom, which features a queen bed with top-quality mattress and luxurious linens and built-in shelving. The master bedroom includes a spotless en suite full bath with combination tub/shower completely tiled in white.

A second cheerful bedroom that overlooks a rose garden can be made up as 2 twins or a king with a memory foam topper, also fitted with luxury linens. A full bathroom down a short hall off the living room has a tub/shower and counter top that are tiled in cloudy blue.

A laundry room with outside access has a washer/dryer and is shared with the guest house on the property. Parking is available for one car in a carport. Two more cars can fit in the driveway.

"Warm And Welcoming
We had a delightful stay. The cottage was clean and comfortable with a breathtaking view of sunsets over the Pacfic. The garden was a private oasis, although we did not spend much time there. Most of our waking hours were in town or on the beach. Carmel will always be one of my favorite places to be and hopefully we will return."

"Wish We Could Own It!
Our family fell in love with this home and can't wait to return. The backyard and the view are gorgeous. The house is very cozy and well stocked, we stayed for a week and had everything we needed..even the sand toys for our 6 and 2 year old. The team at Sanctuary rentals are so easy to work with. Overall we were very pleased and can't wait to return."

"Great Place
This was a getaway trip for a some R&R and some fun too. 
I rented this place sight unseen based on what I saw on the website. The house turned out to be more than I expected. Very comfy and has a great energy. It is clean and very well maintained with a fantastic yard and deck with an ocean view. The neighborhood is so peaceful, I was happy just hanging at the house. 
I felt so comfortable here I was ready to move in! I will definitely return."

"Great Stay And Great Service!
My new bride and I very much enjoyed our recent stay for our wedding with Sanctuary at this very cosy and beautiful home and attached guest studio (we took both for our stay). We had a very pleasant stay and felt that the studio and house were well-equipped, nicely decorated, clean and convenient to the main strip of Carmel-by-the-Sea (5 minutes away) and with easy access to Big Sur. The terrace was beautiful as well, with a view to the coast. We wanted to specifically highlight the exceptional service that Marietta, the property manager, provided us during and particularly after our stay. After the pleasant stay, we had checked out of the house and driven halfway to another appointment in San Francisco by the time we realized we had left the top of our wedding cake in the freezer back in the house. This distressed us very much as we couldn't turn back around due to our appointment. We managed to reach Marietta, and, to put it succinctly, within a few hours, she went above and beyond any expectations to help us out. She helped us carry the cake top up with her the next day to San Francisco, infringing on her planned day with her daughter, and made sure it got to a friend of ours in the city. This was an outcome we couldn't have even wished for and we can't say how much we appreciated her effort and service. This level of service is rare nowadays and makes our decision to recommend the property even easier to make. We will never forget what Marietta did!"

"Fantastic Cottage W View From The Deck
We had a great stay here and truly enjoyed the beautiful deck. The walk down to the beach was on the long side but so beautiful you hardly notice. We will definitely be back!"

"Lovely, Warm Accommodations
As anyone who has ever rented a vacation home in Carmel knows, rentals are very expensive , often poorly maintained, dated and lacking in many amenities. This was absolutely not the case at the lovely cottages we rented from Sanctuary Vacation rentals in early November. The main house and guest house were both charming and very well appointed. In addition, I found the staff and owner to be very gracious, accommodating and responsive to our needs. I would recommend them unequivocably. Thank you again, Lisa"
