      Welcome to "Sanctuary-by-the-Sea"!

      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

      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.”

      “Restful

      We had the most relaxing visit at Sanctuary by the Sea during our March trip. The home was extremely clean and I love clean. Every detail was thought of throughout the home from the kitchen to the wonderful throw blankets. Our yorkie, Sasha, enjoyed her daily walks and the secret garden below the deck. I enjoyed my daily walks through town and along the beach. The instant hot water was perfect as we have tea every night. We have one at our home and I thought I would have to do without for the week, Annie was thoughtful enough to have one in this home. We have stayed at 10-12 different vacation rentals and this was by far the best on the list. We will be coming back again. Don't look at another home rent this one!”

      “Perfect, Beyond Compare

      We are leaving day after next, how sad for us. We found the home to be perfect for us. We have rented 10-12 VRBO's and this was by far the best. Annie thought of everything, the home was presented as a 5 Star resort would be. You will find that the home is a close drive to downtown to many wonderful restaurants and shops. Make sure to go to the Lush store downtown Carmel and get a bath bomb or something else for the bath, you can see the ocean as you relax in the claw foot tub, heaven. Our yorkie, Sasha, loved laying on the pillow at the corner of the sofa as well as the hidden garden beyond the gated deck. The neighborhood is very quiet, the ocean is just blocks away. It is a wonderfully long walk/run to downtown and out Scenic Ave to Mission Inn and back, about 6 or so miles, however the hills on the way back are killers. We didn't use the kitchen much, I was on strike, it's my vacation too. We went to Il Fornaio and had wonderful service, Nico's was great from lunch, but the best was driving to Big Sur and eating at one of our favorites, Ventana Inn. It's about 45 minutes but the scenic views and the food are out of this world. So sad to go but we look forward to yet another trip to Carmel.”

      “The Best Christmas!

      Our family has enjoyed vacations in Carmel since Christmas 1957 when we rented Log Haven, one of Carmel's oldest cottages.  Since then we've had many happy Carmel experiences, but none better than this year's enjoyment of our Sanctuary by the Sea cottage.  The Sanctuary retains the ambiance of old Carmel while affording the comfort of top line, modern features.  We look forward to returning…”

      “It Felt Like Our Home Away From Home, And Maybe Even Better

      Everything that we wanted for the home was there. The arrangements and assistance were excellent. The house was beautiful and relaxing for all of us and our dog. The location was nice, very close to town, the beach, dining and shopping. It was perfect to relax, cook in the beautiful kitchen, which had everything needed for gourmet meals to snacks. The home and all things in it were exceptionally clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay again. We honeymooned in Carmel and came back for our 40th anniversary & it couldn't have been better!”
