Welcome to "Mi Amor"!**

Whether you're are looking for a romantic interlude or you just want to lose yourself in an extraordinary environment, you'll find all your desires fulfilled in this hideaway in a beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea neighborhood at Carmel Point.

From the moment you venture down the path to your own private courtyard and enter your sanctuary with walls of glass, towering ceilings and an immense fireplace, you'll feel that magic has arrived and so have you.

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.

This is a haven of tranquility. A subdued, meditative palette, rich patterned oak floors, washed-wood walls, a high beamed ceiling and an impressive over-sized fireplace faced with brass and black glass set the backdrop for a memorable stay. There is an over sized leather sofa, love seat and chair with ottoman and a 50" HDL TV with video library for you to enjoy as well as table for 6 to enjoy dinners near the fire .

The great room's wall of glass imparts the feeling that there is no separation between the interior and the courtyard, lush with plants, hedges and ferns. View the courtyard from a desk and be inspired. Sip your coffee in the morning or toast your happiness at sunset at an outdoor table and chairs. There is also a gas grill for outdoor entertaining. The lighting at night is magical.

The light-splashed soothing gray kitchen with its washed-wood floors and stainless steel appliances has a sleek, uncluttered styling that is contemporary and calming. Everything you need for preparing gourmet meals is provided, including an extensive collection of beautiful dishware, serving pieces and accoutrements to set a table that will make every meal special.

The glass wall in the spacious master bedroom allows you to lounge in the king-sized bed - appointed with luxury linens - and drink in the garden views, both during the day or at night, when dramatic outdoor lighting turns the courtyard into a fantasy land. Comfortable sofa seating allows for reading and conversation.

Soak in a Jacuzzi bath while gazing up at the stars through the massive bathroom skylight in the updated Master bathroom.

There is a second bedroom that has a King Bed or two twins with luxury bedding and its own updated bathroom with step in shower and large walk in closet. This bedroom is adjacent to the Master and is accessed thru the master for young children or the courtyard providing its own autonomy from the rest of the house.

There is also a separate guest cottage off the courtyard with 2 twin beds that can be converted into a King with memory foam topper decorated with luxury milk chocolate and cream colors and a large 46" flat screen HDL TV. A separate bathroom with step in shower is located in the guest cottage. This cottage has its own private courtyard with lounge chairs.

This secluded sanctuary is located in a premier neighborhood just a few blocks from the ocean, a half mile from the Carmel Mission, Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Inn with its pastoral views, exuberant piano-bar sing-a-longs and renowned brunches. It is an easy 10 block walk to downtown Carmel with its many shops, galleries and restaurants. Everything is provided for you should you decide to have a day at the beach, just a 10 minute walk away.

There is a garage with washer and dryer and room for one small car parking as well as room for up to 2 more cars in front of house.

“Nice And Close To Everything Including A Short Walk To The Beach
Loved the living room area with the comfy seating and fireplace. The kitchen was very modern and had every dish and appliance you would need! Sleeping arrangements with excellent with comfortable beds. We also rented the guest house and that worked out well for our family which was very quaint and well appointed. It was great having the privacy and our own bathrooms. Nice memories and enjoyed every minute of our time at Mi Amor in Carmel, thank-you for saving this beautiful cottage for us to enjoy!”

“Carmel Retreat
Mi Amor was a well appointed home located walking distance to the beach. The house offered 3 bedrooms and all the comforts of home. The tree lined street was quiet and we enjoyed wine in the courtyard each afternoon. Carmel is truly a beautiful destination. Thank you Sanctuary Vacation Rentals for making the process so easy!”

“Serene Beach Vacation
This property exceeded our expectations. We were on our honeymoon and we found the property to be very private yet close to town and the beach. We can't wait to come back!”

Beautiful. The photos don't do this property justice: peaceful, tasteful, full of character. Location couldn't be beat. Management was very responsive and helpful.”
