"Great location!  This house is a great location. The apartment was clean and well done. It is comfortable and quiet. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen reasonable stocked...but we did no real cooking. You can walk many places. Very close to aquarium...but we loved just walking along the ocean ...day and night."

"Excellent Location! Great unit! Highly Recommended!  We couldn't be happier with our recent stay at the Yellow Guest house. My wife and I were in town for a wedding and loved our stay. The unit is in a perfect location. Pacific Grove is far enough away from the busy Cannery row that you feel secluded and relaxed but close enough to walk if you would like to. Literally steps away from the coast. The unit was clean, good size for a 1 bedroom, stocked with everything you would need for a short weekend or even a long stay. The owners and rental company were great at responding quickly to any questions that we had. Would highly recommend this property."

"Very clean, plenty of room for 2 and terrific location!  We enjoyed it very much...It was furnished very nicely and plenty of everything to use, such as, towels, soap, dishes, pans, glassware, coffee, salt & pepper, etc..  The only thing I would suggest is to have two trash cans in the kitchen since you want us to take out the trash on Thursday for Friday pickup and is necessary to divide glass and paper, etc.  We enjoyed our stay very much and so nice meeting the owners!"

"The location could not be more perfect. One house away from the water. 12 minute walk to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Walking distance to town (Pacific Grove). Biking trail along the ocean to Monterey or the Lighthouse/Asilomar/Golf course. There is a view of the water from the bedroom. The property is charming and very well maintained. Furniture is comfortable and heater works well. We were lucky in that no one was renting the house at the time. We were in the apartment over the garage. The owners live in town and are very accessible should there be a question. The stay was perfect, enjoyable and we would definitely recommend the property."

"56 Years to Celebrate! We wanted to do something different and enjoy each other's company, but still see the beauty that this area provided. This Yellow cottage by the sea fit the bill. Just steps form the beach and the walking trail. You could explore any direction. The Aquarium, Cannery Row a short walk. The Light House was closed, this can be for next time. The Cottage was over the garage with parking, most of the others only have street parking, this is a plus. Irma and Don did a nice job in making it comfortable with everything that would be needed to make it your home away from. From the kitchen ready to cook, saving money to have fun doing what makes you happy. The bedroom had a view of the ocean, we could hear the waves and sea birds song. We were sorry to leave the bed that put us both right to sleep! Thanks to Irma and Don, we had a great time."

“Fantastic Cottage With A Perfect Location.We enjoyed our stay in the guest cottage. The location was perfect with a short walk to Cannery Row and we loved being across the street from the beach. Every day we walked along the beach and the large grassy area was great for our 17 month old daughter to run around and explore. The cottage felt like home and had everything we needed. It was great to have a washer and dryer too. This is a great spot - close to the touristy areas, but nice and peaceful.”

“Can’t Wait To Come Back! My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We stay in hotels fairly frequently for work, so wanted somewhere more like "home". We stayed in the little guest house above the garage and loved it! It was the perfect size for two, although next time we'll probably bring the kids as there is a pull-out sofa bed in the living room. Everything we needed (and more) was thought of and provided from kitchen to bathroom. The guest book had restaurant suggestions, locations of grocery stores, lists of Dr's and baby sitters. The bed was very comfortable and the neighborhood nice and quiet. I had the pleasure of running along the coastal trail every morning, and we could walk nearly everywhere in town. The aquarium was less than a 10 minute walk. We will stay here again and maybe stay at the big house with other families. Can't recommend this property highly enough.”

“Best Family Get Away Ever! The little yellow house was fantastic! It was truly a home away from home. I wish I could give the location a 10! 5 min walk from the Aquarium / 10 min walk from Lover's Point beach. A quick drive downtown to great restaurants. You could open the windows at night, turn on the fire place, snuggle in a blankie and just relax. My husband and I had our 2 year old with us and it was plenty of space for her to play but still easy to keep picked up. The bed is SUPER comfy. I'm 6 months pregnant and I slept really well. All in all we would love to make this stay an annual family trip. Thumbs up 100%!!!!”

It was a pleasure meeting the owners, and they were ready to help us out if we needed it. Parking the motorcycles in the garage was an extra plus, so they were nice and dry for the morning motorcycle drive.”

“Perfect Family Getaway. We stayed at the Guest House for one week with our two little kids (2 1/2 and 11 mos) and it could not have been more perfect for us. VERY comfortable accommodations and excellent location - we walked almost everywhere with our double stroller. We had breakfast at home every day and cooked dinner there three nights; it's nice to not have to eat every meal out with a toddler and a baby...

“Seaside Serendipity. We rented the guest apartment, and it couldn't have been a better choice. It is immaculate, spacious, well-maintained, and well-equipped. The location is ideal with many destinations within walking distance. The Ocean Boulevard Recreational Trail runs for miles directly in front of it and depending on the season, you will see harbor seals and their ups in addition to spectacular ocean views. Best for couples or singles. It is a bargain that shouldn't be missed.”

“Seaside Serendipity! I had looked at many photos and descriptions of the "perfect hideaway" in Pacific Grove before finding this one. Thanks to the many views not only of the interior but also the location we knew this would be the perfect choice for a 4 night stay. The layout is exactly as described. The kitchen is compact but very well-equipped for the few meals we prepared. There is even a pot large enough for steaming 3 artichokes. The bed is comfortable and there is plenty of closet space. Everything was immaculate and in working order. The only disappointment was not being able to open the windows easily. Some seemed to have been painted shut and others were just stuck--as you would expect from an older home. However this is a minor quibble and in no way detracted from our satisfaction. The location is perfect. The Aquarium, restaurants, and several shops are within walking distance and those that require a car, are not far away.The recreational boulevard that runs along the ocean is marvelous for exercise and simply enjoying the views. During our stay we especially enjoyed observing the harbor seals that were "pupping" at this time. A restaurant we particularly enjoyed was Sea Harvest (also a working fish market). It is also within walking distance and seems to be popular with locals. A highlight was a day spent at Point Lobos State Reserve outside of Monterey en route to Carmel. There are so many short hikes all with gorgeous views. For anyone who is looking for comfort, cleanliness, convenience in a well-maintained venue, this rental would be hard to beat.”

“Location, Location, Location! During a recent trip to the west coast, I had a couple of free days and decided to drive down Highway 1 to Pacific Grove. When I visit Monterey/Pacific Grove/ Carmel, I prefer to rent a house or guest house. I had not dealt with Sanctuary rental previously, but I was familiar with some of the properties they represent. So, I called Sanctuary to see if they could arrange a house/guesthouse rental on short notice. Marilyn and annee quickly arranged for me to rent the Little Yellow Guest House. I greatly appreciated how quickly and efficiently they arranged things. The guest house is a one bedroom apartment on the second floor behind the house. Actually, it faces the street so while it is behind the main house, that isn’t the way it looks or feels. It is quite literally across the street from the ocean, so it was ideally located. The guest house is nicely decorated. It is clear that the owners pay great attention to detail and they take great pride in their property. The guest house has everything that one needs for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Pacific Grove. The apartment is very bright and airy with lots of windows, including a bay window in the bedroom which looks out to the ocean. The bed was very comfortable and there is ample closet space. While the apartment is small, it is carefully arranged so it has an open feel that was very appealing. One thing I particularly liked was that the owners had provided informative notes in several places so that their guests don’t have to go looking for anything. That made it easy to quickly settle in and begin enjoying Pacific Grove. The walking/biking path along Ocean View Boulevard is just steps away from the guest house and there is off street parking for one car. The guest house is small, so it is best suited for individuals, couples or perhaps a couple with one child. You have to negotiate a flight of stairs to get in and out of the apartment, so if that is problem you may want look elsewhere, but speaking only for myself I felt that being on the second floor was a real bonus because it provided a nice view of the ocean. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Little Yellow Guest House and I would certainly consider renting the Little Yellow Guest House in the future. I also would recommend Sanctuary rental for their prompt and courteous service.”

“Unbelievable Place And Time… I usually stay in motels and never thought about using a "vacation rental". My thought process is usually that I just need a place to lay my head. Well, this place has changed my mind. My girlfriend was able to find this place for a romantic getaway and they accommodated our last minute reservation request. We even received a call from the owner, our first night there, to find out how we were doing. How awesome is that? What a great little, comfy place. It is absolutely beautiful and in a great location. It is fully stocked with everything you'll ever need (plates, silverware, coffee maker, blender, towels, bath wash)...you name it...it is there. The kitchen has ample space to eat; the bedroom has a soft CA King bed (I believe), a dresser, a TV and DVD player, lots of closet space and a little bay window. The living room has a cute little faux fireplace that also provides heat. On top of that sits the television, with a cable box with DVR capabilities (you don’t even have to miss your favorite shows). The location was awesome, as well. It is one house down from the corner, next to the ocean. We opened the windows at night so we could hear the waves. What an awesome way to fall asleep. Waking up to those same waves and the seagulls isn't so bad either. It is almost within walking distance to everything. Not far down the street is a cute little inside mall. The candy store there was a nice treat. There is everything you need downtown, as well. There are cute little shops and nice places to eat. I even found a 7-11. Everything here seems so thoughtfully laid out in this “home”. I am glad my girlfriend found this place. Again, I will say that my mind has changed on what types of places to stay and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.”

“Great Get-Away! My wife and I stayed at the yellow house apartment over the garage for three days in October 2011. The stay met all our expectations. The one bedroom apartment was roomy, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. The Wifi and TV system worked flawlessly. The location was even better than we expected, one house up from the Ocean and a short walk to the Monterey Aquarium. We will be back!”
