Nourish body, mind and spirit in this special 1,800-square-foot 3 - 4 bedroom 2 bath Carmel-by-the-Sea cottage called “Sanctuary” that has been remodeled in recent years with a new kitchen and guest bathroom. The owner once had an inn in Vermont and special care has been taken to provide many of the same amenities.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of sparkling wine or cider, passes from the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, Scheid Wine tasting room passes, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, oversized towels and beach gear.

The owners have created a wonderful refuge and invite you to take time out to experience the breathtaking beauty and exquisite charm of Carmel and the surrounding Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur coast.

When you enter Sanctuary you will find a lovely living room with vaulted white ceilings, white cottage walls, oak floors, a wood-burning fireplace with gas kindler and lots of windows. The dining room, which seats 6-8, opens to the newly remodeled kitchen, which is fully equipped with a professional Viking range and other first-class appliances, unique dinnerware and all the accouterments for elegant entertaining.

Also located on the first floor is a guest bedroom with a queen that has a charming white picket fence frame with two small birdhouses on the posts. Just seeing this whimsical bed will inspire you to nestle under the plush comforter with a cup of tea and a good novel.

Enjoy cocktails or dinner on a private deck, equipped with a grill and comfortable outdoor furniture, with distant ocean views through the pines.

The media room, which has two large picture windows overlooking the flower-covered deck and fenced-in back yard (pet and child-friendly), has a 50-inch HDTV with full cable, a video/DVD library, high-speed wireless internet connection and numerous books. A trundle can sleep two singles or be made into a king bed with Memory Foam topper. The first floor also has an updated bathroom with Subway tiled shower and a washer and dryer.

The master bedroom on the upper level, with its vaulted ceilings, tall windows and ocean views, gives the feeling of being in a tree house. It has a king bed, HDTV, and a wood-burning fireplace with gas kindler. The newly remodeled bathroom, in cottage white with butter-cream accents, has an oak floor, a vintage cast-iron tub, separate shower with hand-crafted Subway tiles and frameless glass enclosure, two pedestal sinks and separate water closet. From the tub you can see distant oceans views out a large picture window to the ocean, with privacy from tall pines.
A small, whimsical multi-purpose space called the Velveteen Rabbit Room has a trundle that sleeps 2 and can be made into a king-sized bed. In addition to being used as a bedroom, it could be an office or artist's studio. There is a large walk-in closet. (Please note that if guests are sleeping in the Velveteen Rabbit Room they would have to walk through the master suite to access the upstairs bathroom or use the bathroom downstairs that is accessible off the hallway.

A large second library filled with inspirational and entertaining books is located on the landing between the master suite and the Velveteen Rabbit room.
Any guest who stays here falls in love with this special Cottage by the Sea called Sanctuary.

Great cottage style rental

Rick G. from Barnstable, MA recommends this property
Stayed 11 days in Apr, 2014
We spent three months at this rental and we really enjoyed our stay. It was close to Carmel's shopping area and also just a few minutes from Carmel Beach one of most beautiful dog friendly beaches in the world.

The cottage amenities were good and the second floor master suite was very large and comfortable. The property management was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive to all our suggestions.

The outside deck and furniture were in need of upgrading but that can be easily remedied.

Sanctuary by the Sea

Rick G. from Barnstable, MA recommends this property
Stayed 30 days in Mar, 2014
We really enjoyed our three month stay. The property manager was especially helpful responding immediately to any issues. The agency owner was also very responsive, replacing the TV with a larger new TV and also replacing a guest room mattress at our request. The only area of concern was the wood deck and a wood bench both of which need to be replaced as they are badly deteriorated.
