Description

Welcome to Sea Shell Cottage"! Home sleeps up to 4 adults and 1 child.

Also Available Long Term - 6-12 Months or More - Substantial Savings! Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

Retreat to a gentler, slower-paced era in this delightful tree-shrouded quintessential Carmel-by-the-Sea board-and-batten cottage that evokes the spirit of the village's original founding artist colony. This clean, airy 1200 square feet, two-bedroom cottage, which is located in a quiet neighborhood only blocks from the downtown, blends seashore-themed originality and whimsy with comfort and good taste.

A newly refurbished one-bedroom guest cottage behind the main house can also be rented to provide additional accommodations. Obtain more information on #3264 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website. You can book the guest cottage together with the main house or separately.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, 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, spa robes and beach gear.

Relax with a good book and warm body and soul in front of a wood-burning brick fireplace in a cozy living room that features comfy furnishings, a vaulted ceiling with skylights, wood floors topped with plush rugs and paned windows looking out to a fenced-in patio dotted with pots brimming with colorful flowers and native plants. Crisp beach tones of tan, white and robins-egg blue remind you that the Pacific Ocean is just nearby and you most assuredly are on vacation.

Picture lively meals with friends and loved ones around a rectangular French country oak table that can seat up to 10 in a dining area that overlooks the patio. Adjacent is a fully-equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave and side-by-side refrigerator.

Take your morning coffee and croissant before you put on your walking shoes and stroll into the village of Carmel to explore the myriad shops, galleries and world-class restaurants. If you're feeling ambitious, you can even continue all the way down Ocean Avenue to its ending at the pristine white beach and sparkling azure waves that have enticed countless visitors from around the world to kick off their shoes and stroll along the water's edge. If you plan ahead, you can stop at Bruno's Market, a Carmel trademark, en route and pick up some wine, cheese, bread and fresh fruit for a casual picnic.

The robin's-egg blue and sage green master bedroom, with its plush warm carpeting and luxury-hotel-quality linens, features a white California king bed with memory foam topper that can be converted to two twins if desired.

The second smaller bedroom has hardwood flooring topped with an area rug and a queen wicker bed.

The bathroom, near both bedrooms, features a new granite counter top and is tiled throughout, including whimsical tiles of fish adorning the combination bath/shower.

Additional sleeping option for a child is available in the living room on a futon/chaise.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome in this secure property, which is completely enclosed by a grape-stake fence. You can walk your dog in a charming vest-pocket park just around the corner. The paved driveway is long enough to accommodate a recreational vehicle or 2-3 cars; there is street parking for up to two cars as well.

Evening cocktails can be enjoyed at a bistro table in the front patio. A grill is provided for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Outdoor access to washer and dryer.

"Perfect cottage, perfect location. Thanks to SVR for everything - we and our golden retriever had the best time. We have been here many times for weekends but this was our first time long term - we will be sure to do it again. I wish we could take the beach home for our dog."

~ Dale T. and Family

"Peaceful Sanctuary! Our stay at Sanctuary by the Sea on Torres Street in Carmel was delightful. The house is beautifully decorated in a cozy beach cottage theme. Every need has been anticipated, from the well-equipped kitchen to the Montery aquarium passes. We didn't feel like we were staying in a rental, but were treasured guests at a dear friends vacation get-away. We arrived late at night to find a warm candle-lit welcome complete with wine & artisan cheese. The secret garden provided a place to commune with nature, and to gather with friends and family. We are already planning to return!"

"Wonderful Stay At The Sanctuary. We had a wonderful time in this very cute and comfrotable cottage. Loved the location - so convenient to everything. The house was perfect too...it had everything we could possibly need, and then some! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful holiday."

"Extraordinary Beach Cottage Luxury With A Fantastic Location. The Beach Cottage has superb designer touches to be cherished, you felt so welcomed as if you were trading homes with dear friends, all four of us treasured our time and our dog was welcome as well! We definitely will be back. The location is close to everything and the aquarium passes were perfect for quick entry. Carmel Beach is fabulous and close, there is a washer and dryer and the patio is large and enclosed for privacy. It was the perfect vacation anytime of the year! Our tweens thought it was perfect as well. There is a tv, cd player, areas to read in comfort, a fabulous kitchen with all that you could need for dining, and the fluffiest towels ever! The garden is gorgeous and large windows to view it! Our dog enjoyed it as well since the very large patio was enclosed he could lie outside comfortably and there are so many dog friendly restaurants. The house felt open and you truly wanted to spend time there when you weren't at the beach! It is a perfect getaway for a family or a couple."
