Description

Welcome to “Yellow House”, Pacific Grove! Home sleeps up to 8 guests.

Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

A dream-come-true vacation home with guest quarters: main house is 2437 square feet, 4 bedroom, 2.5 baths and sleeps 8 in 1 king bed, 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds.

Bright and sunny inside and out, this turn-of-the-century yellow shingled 4-bedroom -- just a stone's throw from the recreation trail leading to the sheltered beach at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove and beyond -- is a vacationer's dream. You're so close to Monterey Bay you can hear the seals bark and watch the waves lap on the rocky shoreline from the living room, dining area and master bedroom. The walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium is an easy 5-10 minute stroll along the beautiful recreation trail. Also within walking distance are restaurants and attractions of both downtown Pacific Grove, Cannery Row and New Monterey.

Centrally located a few blocks from downtown and across the street from the famous Green Gables Inn, it is perfect for life-cycle events or family reunions, where large numbers of people want to be located near one another. Recently updated and freshly painted in upbeat yellows and sea-palette blues, the house has a casual, summery feel accentuated by comfy white furnishings.

The living room is bright and cheery with ocean views and a fireplace. The bright white fully-equipped eat-in kitchen opens to a larger dining area that seats 12.

A back deck with charcoal grill provides privacy for outdoor cooking or just plain relaxing.
There is a washer and dryer in the garage.

All aspects of your stay will be taken care of by the the home's owner, who will be your Guest Services Manager once your reservation is confirmed through Sanctuary Vacation Rentals' reservation team.

The location was perfect, with fabulous views and direct access to the walking/bike trail- provided great trips to Cannery row and Lover’s point with ocean views and mist at times. My only regret with the house was not being able to use the spa tub. The kitchen Was wonderful, bedrooms and baths comfortable sizes. Would have been nice to open the the windows more, but understand the safety issues. Overall a relaxing and splendid experience. I would do it again!

This was my first VRBO experience. We absolutely enjoyed our stay in this beautiful old Victorian house. The house was clean and well maintained. It was ideal for myself, hubby, parents, and 3 kids. The ocean view window seat was a favorite spot to relax after a busy day at the beach, hiking, tide pooling. The color palette and home decor was soothing, relaxing, and definitely gave the vibe of dreamy vacation getaway. We would stay at this house again. It’s a perfect location just steps from the beach, walking distance to cannery row in Monterey for shopping and dining, short drive to Carmel beach, 17 mile drive, point Lobos. Sanctuary vacation rentals was very helpful and responded to questions quickly and Irma was also very kind and answered phone right away. They gave great advice on things to do and restaurant options.

This was a perfect spot for our family reunion.
We found endless opportunities for fun: walks along the ocean to a Lovers Point and beyond, a path for the joggers, The Aquarium, great area restaurants, 17 Mile Drive, the beach, the seals, Carmel Mission and more.
Perhaps our most special moments were spent tucked into this cozy gem of a home, sharing meals, games and talking into the night. Yes, it felt like home

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Yellow House Main. We agree that the location is perfect for exploring by day and dining at night. We look forward to speaking with you the next time you want to come 'home'.

"The house afforded us quick walks to Lover's Point, Aquarium, downtown Monterey for dinner, downtown Pac Grove for dinner, farmer's market, etc. Perfect, perfect placement. The only negatives are that the windows facing the ocean don't open...so the house doesn't receive the breeze and sound of crashing waves while you enjoy the views."

"I can't say enough about this Yellow House! It was so charming and comfortable. All the beds and extra bedding were very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you could need to cook meals for the family. I could have sat in the window seat and enjoyed the view of the coast for hours! The location could not be better with so much to see and do within walking distance. The entire family loved it and found it hard to leave. So grateful for the opportunity to stay here."

"Gorgeous ocean view!  As soon as we arrived at the property, we knew that we have made the right choice to stay at this property. Mary, thanks for recommending this house to us. The ocean view from the drive way and the house is so beautiful and soothing! The house fit the 8 of us just right. Irma, thanks for setting up four twin beds to accommodate us. Both Mary at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals and Irma, the property manager, has been very helpful and pleasant to work with. They responded promptly too.  We spent three nights here to celebrate my father in law’s 98 birthday. It’s a very relaxing and joyful vacation for all of us. The location is excellent. The furnishings is great. We would love to come back again!"

Walked 8 minutes east to rent electric bikes and 8 minutes west to coffee overlooking the cove. Drove 2 miles to Safeway; 3 to Whole Foods. We sailed “Bella On The Bay” surrounded by dolphins."

"Pacific Grove Paradise!  This home is everything it is described as and more! The rooms are spacious, cozy and warm. The kitchen is well stocked, and has all you could want to prepare your meals, plus two sinks for easy prep and clean up. A dining table that seats 8 easily, a separate TV room so the living room isn't monopolized. The views are too good to be true! The gorgeous window seat was occupied our entire stay! The ocean is across the street, you are walking distance to the beach, downtown Monterey (Aquarium & shops), and the shops of Pacific Grove. Best treat was watching the harbor seal mamas and their new pups!
The owner, Irma was easily accessible and very friendly. We have already recommended this spot highly to friends and plan to return soon!"

"Exactly as described!  Staying at the Yellow House-Main was all that a parent could imagine for their daughter’s wedding weekend. The accommodations were top notch with every thoughtful amenity. We have been renting homes through various agencies for 20 years and this home has everything you need to make your stay a home-away-from-home experience. The views of the Monterey Bay are tremendous and so close (walking distance) to the Aquarium and other sights. Take your bike or good walking shoes! The walking/bike path is steps away from the front door.  We look forward to returning soon!"

"Absolutely fantastic! Wonderful!  We stayed at the main Yellow House for our son's wedding. We are seasoned home away/vrbo travelers and have stayed in many homes throughout the country over the years. The Yellow House was simply wonderful!! The property was very clean and the listing description was spot on. Natural light filled the home and the relaxing sounds of the ocean could be heard from all the bedrooms. The view of the ocean from the main sitting room was amazing. Irma the house manager was great~ so pleasant and responsive to our questions and needs. The overall energy to this home was simply wonderful! I desired a 'home away from home" for my family and friends as we embraced the week leading up to our son's Carmel wedding and the Yellow House provided just that. Driveway parking was convenient, along with ample street parking, allowing family and friends to come and go as we prepared, visited, and enjoyed the time before the wedding day. Also, the location was convenient to walks along the water, trips to grocery stores and such, as well as lunches and meals on Lighthouse Ave. Highly recommend the home. Delightful stay."

"Home Away from Home! This is our 3rd time staying at the Little Yellow House. This is our favorite retreat for so many reasons. Pacific Grove/Monterrey is an amazing outdoor playground and I feel like we will never run out of things to do. The house is amazingly comfortable to stay in. It has a fully stocked kitchen for cooking nearly any type of meal, nice serving ware, comfortable/good quality furnishings, and is beautifully maintained. We had two families staying in the big house with 5 children and there was plenty of room for all. The house is definitely kid friendly. Irma (the owner) is a delight and very responsive to our few questions that came up during our stay. This will be an annual trip for us and can't wait to come back next year!"

“Heavenly!  What a wonderful surprise, a home that meets and exceeds expectations! We rented both the Main & Guest House for our annual girlfriend's retreat. Location, location, location. This house is perfectly situated in the middle of Lover's Point, Monterey's Cannery Row & downtown Pacific Grove (5-8 min walk pending your pace). For those active vacationers, rent Bikes and Kayak's from Adventure's by the Sea. For the loungers, fireplace and sightseeing out the big bay window with seat.  Comforts of home. Fully stocked kitchen. Only request is to have more dish towels available.  Beds and linens were clean and comfortable for the chilly nights.  The secrets out, we'll have to book way in advance for the next trip.”

“Lovely Home With An Ideal Location. Our four nights in the yellow house was perfect in every way. We only wished we could have stayed longer! The location is unbelievable, right across the street is a walking path and below that the Pacific Ocean. The Yellow House was ideal for our gathering to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday. Most of us took advantage of the surroundings and spent our days exploring the area. We enjoyed The Aquariam, Kayaking, Big Sur, Carmel(too busy), Pebble Beach Golf Course and Asilomar State Beach. The house is worthy of as much praise as the glorious location. Overall the home is simply BEAUTIFUL! I was giddy the moment we walked through the front door. The home was charming, clean and plenty big. We enjoyed every room, including the back deck. The beds were comfy, the kitchen large and well equiped. Did I say overall charming? I can't wait to think of our next reason to go back to the Beautiful Yellow House. Top Rate experience from start to finish.”

Only complaint is that the propane BBQ did not work well. Not sure if it needs a new burner but we could never get it hot enough to cook our chicken and tri-tip so we had to put it in the oven. We made due and it was no big deal. I am sure the owners/operators will take care of the matter. I will personally go back and will use this house again to take my program directors again when we need a retreat out of town!”

“Bliss By The Sea. We absolutely loved our vacation in the charming yellow house. It was a true vacation, and we all left feeling very rested and happy.  The home is very inviting. It is beautiful, and has a wonderful personality to it.It feels so well cared for and is well maintained. It is apparent that the owners love their place and want to share that with others.  We rejoiced over the window seat, and almost fought over it! We thought the home was the perfect blend of the charm and loveliness of yesteryear, but with all of the ease and convenience of modern day. The location was ideal. Could you ask for more gorgeous views from the many windows? We loved the proximity to so many grand options too. The guest house is just as perfect as the main house, and a great option to have.  We have all commented that we slept very well there. I am sure it is a combination of quality mattresses and the soothing setting. The owners and the agents were very helpful and pleasant, and responded quickly to any question we had. They seemed truly interested in helping us to have a delightful time. We loved playing board games, reading, visiting, and renting bicycles and riding by the seaside. We thought the 17 mile drive was incredible, and the drive through Big Sur was absolutely spectacular- Not to be missed. We ate at some great restaurants in the area. We also found the cooler temperatures to be a bit of heaven after a hot summer where we live. Our only sorrow was that the time passed so quickly! This was a great find.”

“Memorable Place To Spend Time With Friends & Family - Perfect!! This is the best place ever to stay for a vacation you won't forget! I recently held my 60th Birthday party at the "Yellow House" and am still dreaming about it. It is a beautiful home, well appointed, probably with the best kitchen I have ever used in a vacation home. Attention to detail with each room was great - from linens to televisions (and instructions on how to use them) to two eating areas and outdoor patio. All my dealings with SRV as well as with the owner Irma were pleasant with all my needs and questions answered and met. I like that the MB had a Master Bath too. The best thing about this house is the welcoming feeling you get when you walk in and also the ocean breezes. I would get my hot tea, walk across the street and watch the seals and ocean waves and trees. Love it!!! The least thing I liked was having to leave. I will be back again.”
