Description

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

Tranquil views of Monterey Bay beckon from virtually every room in this lovely 1057 square feet 3-bedroom, 2-bath hilltop home in a friendly Pacific Grove neighborhood within walking distance of the coastline and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The location is ideal, just blocks from downtown Pacific Grove shops and restaurants, and the 15-mile walking and bike trail that winds along the shoreline. Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach are all less than a 10-minute drive away; Big Sur about 45 minutes.

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.

A short flight of steps from the sidewalk takes you up to the front entrance. A long, narrow balcony runs along the front of the house affording a spot to watch the gulls and pelicans soar over Monterey Bay. The house combines nostalgic '50s architectural touches with sophisticated contemporary seashore-themed décor.

The panelled living room, has stunning bay views, features wall-to-wall windows, a beamed vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, sofa, loveseat and an antique bureau. Relax with popcorn and watch movies on a flat-screen TV. A telescope is provided for up-close looks at sailboats in the bay.

An adjacent open dining room, also with gorgeous bay views, has a wooden table and chairs for 6. A bank of built-in cabinets (with a pass through window to the kitchen) provide storage for table linens, games and puzzles.

Prepare gourmet meals in a handsome kitchen with white tile counter-tops, wooden cabinets and a central work station with a built-in electric stove top. Other appliances include an oven, dishwasher and microwave. Breakfast or casual meals can be enjoyed at a square oak table with 4 Windsor chairs. A nook with a washer and dryer is nearby.

A back door leads to an enclosed patio - partially framed in glass to let in the water views - equipped with a picnic table and grill.

The master bedroom, with a large window that looks out to the back deck, has a king bed with foam topper, wooden end tables with tripod table lamps and an armchair. Bed can be made up as two twins. The master bath has white and pale yellow tiles and enclosed shower.

A second bedroom has a king bed with foam topper which can also be made into two twins, a white wooden dresser and bedside tables and table lamps with metal bases shaped like tree branches.

The third bedroom has twin beds with sea-themed artwork, a white wooden dresser and bedside stands and blue ceramic table lamps. These twin beds can be made up together with a foam topper for a king.

Additional sleeping possibilities include a day bed with a trundle to sleep two children located in the living room. An additional bathroom, also tiled in white and pale yellow, has a tub with a shower.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome for an additional fee.

*There is a grand piano in the living room but it isn't available for guests to use. A video may refer to Spa Passes; we apologize but these aren't currently available*

"Incredible view, incredible stay!  We (family of 4 with a toddler and our dog) stayed at this excellent location (15 mins walk from Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium).  The view from the living room is spectacular to wake up to every morning.  The house was very well maintained and equipped with everything we needed with detailed instructions.  The best part of the deal was that it was super pet friendly :)  We had a beautiful stay and will definitely be back again!"

"Lovely home with breath-taking bay views!  My children and I came to enjoy Monterey - and absolutely loved the home! We loved waking to see that view!! Loved watching the sea creatures playing thru the telescope provided in the home, watching the fisherman out in the bay... The beds were comfortable, linens well supplied, the neighborhood quiet and safe. Conveniently located to all we planned for our stay. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!"

"Very nice home, comfortable furnishings, & views!  My friends and I went for a golfing outing, staying at this house. The furnishings were much better than average, good kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils, nice washer/dryer, BBQ, wonderful garden area in front and back. The place was spotless. I would have given it 4.5 stars, but not an option. I would've loved to play the piano there, but it is understandably not possible. We had two cars, and no problem parking in front of the home. Not crazy about some of the additional costs, but such is life. I would stay there again."

The location was fantastic, just a few blocks to both the Aquarium, and the shore walk. We could not imagine a better place to stay in Monterrey!!"

"Amazing!  What a fantastically beautiful home and neighborhood. We were only two couples so there was more than enough room for us to enjoy the space. The views from the living room and dining room are spectacular. Mother Nature delivered perfect weather for the weekend which certainly enhanced our experience. We could walk down to the bike path for a run or walk and we really enjoyed walking into downtown PG which has really come alive in the past few years. We hope to come back again soon!"

"Great Location! Spacious House for Families!  My husband and 2 kids, 7 and 4 had a blast staying here over the long weekend. We were greated with cheese and crackers, bag of chocolate chip cookies, and wine upon our arrival. The house is located within walking distance to the Aquarium but we drove because who wants to listen to two kids whine about being too tired to walk back! Everything you ever wanted to visit is a short drive from the house! The house is located on a very quiet street (hilly) with plenty of parking in front of the house. The views from the living room were spectacular! We all loved looking through the provided telescope at the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, we couldn't spot any whales!  The house comes with plenty of bath and beach towels and a very well stocked kitchen, water filter pitcher, Keurig, and traditional coffee maker are all provided. Beach chairs are also provided. The kids enjoyed the board games. I suggest a few minor tweaks to make it even more enjoyable: - more Keurig pods. Only 2 was provided but we stayed for 3 nights. - check the batteries in smoke detectors. Ours beeped in the middle of the night, but Julia the house manager was quick to remedy that once contacted. - more tissue boxes. We only found 1 in the living room.
We requested an early check-in and Julia was accomadating enough to allow us to check in a few hours earlier. Overall, we loved our stay and will come back again when we return to gorgeous Monterey!"

"The view and attention to detail are equally stellar!  The home was spacious and well appointed. From the complimentary wine and spa passes to the perfectly made table settings and notes around the house, the place was great. And the view of the bay over the rooftops of Pacific Grove was icing on the cake. Very reliable wifi from the multiple boosters scattered around the place. Everywhere you turned, there is a nice little amenity, including throw blankets next to the couch, electric candles on the bar, beach towels by the door, flashlights in the night stands, coupons to local establishments, access to the gas powered fire place, multiple sets of bath towels in each room, etc, etc.

The only (very nit picky) things to note about the property are:
- Very few grounded outlets. Most portable devices don't need them anymore, but in case you bring any power adapters that require 3 prongs, there's one receptacle in the kitchen. Otherwise, there are 2 pronged outlets all over the place.
- The shower head in the shared bathroom is maybe 5 ft tall, which requires some yoga poses for the 6 ft+ club. This could be resolved with a hand held shower wand that can be mounted higher on the wall than the spigot. However, the master bath has a much higher head, so we just used that one for hair washing.
- We loved how close the house is to local shops and restaurants, but the steep climb to the house is quite a feat after a long day of exploring and libations. I'm sure we're better for it though.
- Some way to play music other than MTV on the TV. Doesn't need to be big enough to disturb the neighbors, but just a little Bluetooth speaker would be nice for fireside chats.

Working with the property management was very easy. I would say that all the earlier complaints have been well addressed because the process is straight forward and well thought out and communication was fast and courteous. It's not as easy as a direct rental with an owner, but you would likely not get the same level of detail either. High five to Sanctuary Homes. Thanks for making our vacation happy."

"Marvelous Experience!  This property is everything they claim and then some. Whenever we choose a vacation rental there is some anticipation as we near the property. "Is the place what we expected or is it a disappointment." This was way beyond all of our expectations. Lets start with the view: spectacular. Monterrey/Pacific Grove Bay can be seen from the very expansive windows in the living area and 2 of the bedrooms. It never got old. Every morning when we opened the curtains, the beauty we saw was sensational. This location of this property is perfect. The place is only a 10 minute walk through the charming neighbor to the water, the Monterey Aquarium, the Outlet stores, movies and restaurants. It is also a 5 minute drive to downtown Monterey and 12 minutes to Carmel.  The house itself also exceeded our expectations. The well decorated rooms are large and roomy. It is well taken care of and very clean.  Each of the 3 bedrooms where set up with king size beds as we had 3 couples in our party. I was initially concerned 1 or 2 of the couples would have a small room BUT this is not the case. All 3 bedrooms are roomy and comfortable, and have a lot of storage places. The beds were extremely comfortable. The house provides many extra pillows and blankets and even have baskets of throw blankets in the living room. The kitchen was my favorite. We all love to cook and/or bake and the kitchen provided a fully stock kitchen of quality appliances, utensils and cookware. The oven is standard or convection, which was a delight to bake in.
Right outside the kitchen is a fairytale like garden with an outdoor picnic table and benches. Though it was too cold to eat out there, I spent time each day just walking around the garden and enjoying the space. The owner sometimes stays on the property in an attached home but we never saw or heard her unless we asked her a question via text. I plan to book this house whenever we are in the area."

"A House with a Spectacular View!!  This is a well appointed house with almost panoramic views of the water (if only we could chop down a few of the neighbor's trees to the right - heehee). It was clean, spacious, had extra comfy beds, a kitchen stocked liked no other, and walking distance to the Monterey Aquarium. We would stay here again without hesitation. The property manager answered all our questions quickly. Accessing the property was simple, using the instructions provided. More sitting space in the main room would have been appreciated for our group of 5. We had to move the furniture around so we could all watch the Olympics on the tv. Otherwise, the place was close to perfect."

The home is comfortable and welcoming within easy walking to town, Canary Row and the coast. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed at added benefit of foggy, cool mornings which were a treat after our 100+ degree days at home."

"Pleasantly surprised! Reviews are an important part of assisting others with choosing which vacation rental property is right for them. I had read the reviews and looked at all of the pictures provided. I worried the bathrooms and kitchen looked out of date in the pictures. This house has a very homey feel to it - comfortable and well equipped. The location is great for walking to the aquarium, Lover's Point, and other area attractions. The best part and most difficult to describe - ocean views from 3 different sets of windows in the open living/dining area! The pictures can't do it justice. You'll enjoy amazing sunrises and sunsets right there on the patio or in the living/dining area. My husband and I stayed here with our 2 sons, ages 17 and 12. The whole family enjoyed this home and we hope to visit again."

"Beautiful views, great location! This home was beautifully situated on a hill with sweeping views of the water. We loved how this home had ample space for us to spread out and the rooms were very comfortable. The property was clean but had ants in the bathrooms. I also thought the bathrooms needed more places to hang towels. The guest bathroom had a bath with glass sliding doors that were very fragile and seemed like they would fall off at any moment. The house had everything you could need, but I suggest bringing your own soap for the shower. I highly recommend the owner replace the current coffee maker with a Keurig. The property manager was easy to reach and helpful. We appreciated the welcome folder and visited many of the places listed. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely book this home again!"

"Clean, sunny, stocked with everything you need! This house served our purposes perfectly! 6 of us stayed, plenty of room to spread out (living room, dining room, patio), 10 min walk to Cannery Row, a lovely 30 minute walk to Asilomar, 5-10 minutes to the shops and restaurants on Lighthouse in Pacific Grove. Gorgeous view of Monterey Bay, and a telescope to zoom in! Parking on the street...and everything you need to make a group dinner or cook out on the grill. There was nothing we needed that we didn't find. Even laundry detergent! Appliances were all top notch. LOVED IT."

“Family Reunion Includes A Sweet Stay In Monterey! Our rental was wonderfully decorated in beach fun yet a touch of elegance was included. Our 6 year old granddaughter loved the humming birds in the back yard and we watched 3 young seagulls learn to fly off. We found the kitchen cabinets and drawers stocked with any dishes utility tools and pans for baking or BBQing anyone would possibly need. The beds were comfortable and several games were provided. We had a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and a boat lighted brightly for night fishing. We watched intently using the [telescope] provided by the homeowner. We had a marvelous time and wished our stay could have been longer.”

“Loved Our Stay At The Ocean View Home!!! We rented the Ocean View home for 4 nights to celebrate our 35th anniversary and spend our annual 4th of July weekend in Monterey. We were delighted from the moment we walked into the house. The pictures on the web-site do not do the home justice. It is much more beautiful and spacious in person. There were 7 adults and a toddler. The home was immaculate and spacious. And, the view of the beautiful Monterey bay just took our breath away. The first evening we had extended family, also staying in Monterey, join us for dinner. The children loved looking out into the ocean through the telescope. We cooked dinner in the spacious kitchen with views of the ocean. Everything we could possibly need was provided, included beach chairs which we took to the beach for a bon fire one evening. An easy walk to Cannery Row, we strolled there for fish and chips lunch. The decor is tasteful and we loved the colors used throughout the home. Also, loved the positive and inspiring quotes throughout the home. It was easy to relax and enjoy our time together. We have spent every 4th of July in Monterey for the past 20 years. This was the best! We hope staying in this beautiful home will become a yearly tradition for our family. Robin and staff at Sanctuary vacation rentals are generous with the amenities provided and the cleanliness of the home was a AAA++. Only complaint is that our stay went by too fast, leaving our beautiful sanctuary was difficult.”

“Perfection! Our family was in town to bury my father at the Pacific Grove cemetery. The house was absolutely beautiful and made the family reunion peaceful and relaxing. The accommodations were excellent - the layout, the comfortable beds, the well stocked kitchen, the large yard. Every detail so thought out and well planned. It was truly a home away from home. Thank you for providing such a magical place.”

“Tennis Weekend Away For 7! What a terrific place to stay for our tennis weekend. We had 7 ladies aged 40+ stay in this wonderfully located home with fantastic views of the ocean! This home comes with the option of setting up the beds as Kings or can separate the beds into twins--what a clever idea and oh so flexible for guests. Overall nice home with lots of charm and location was great--nothing was ever more than a mile or two away. Many thanks for a great stay!”

“Dog-Friendly In Pacific Grove. This lovely house was spotless and an easy walk to the ocean, but it was the fenced back yard that we most appreciated with our dogs. Great location and a fun visit to Pacific Grove.”

“Welcoming And Restful. Our two adult sons and their families joined us for a weekend break in Pacific Grove. The view from the front windows of the Monterey Bay was spectacular. We even saw migrating whales spouting from the front deck. The home is beautifully decorated in seaside motif. Wonderful from beginning to end.”

“Fabulous Views And Beautiful Home! This home was impressive! The location was beautiful, easy to access, and roomy for all. Everything was clean and in excellent shape. There were plenty of rooms and bathrooms for our group - 6 adults and 1 3 year old. We were greeted with wine, cheese, and crackers and a table 'set for company.' The kitchen was clean and held plenty of everything to make meals and such right there. We could easily walk to downtown Pacific Grove, the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row area, the Monterey wharfs, and the beautiful walking/jogging/biking trails. We were here for a family wedding, so a lot of our time revolved around those activities, but we enjoyed meals on the ocean front, trips to the yogurt shop, and chowder on the wharf. We would recommend this home to anyone.”

“A Wonderful Getaway Spot! This was truly a sanctuary. We spent 4 lovely days with our family in this home and it was perfect - beautiful views, great amenities, perfect location. The home was clean, elegant, but comfortable, and fully stocked with everything we needed and more. We walked to Aquarium (passes provided), to Cannery Row and beachfront; rented bikes to ride the 17-mile drive, and relaxed on comfy couches. We can't wait to return!”

“Beautiful Views And Very Convenient Location! Our two night stay at this home away from home was great. The house was spotless! The views were wonderful and beds were very comfortable. The home is also very convenient for walking into Monterey and Pacific Grove. The Monterey Bay Aquarium passes were very handy and helped defray the admission costs. The kids loved the "Jellies Experience" at the aquarium! Wish we had been able to vacation longer, but now know where to stay when we return some day. I would most definitely recommend this vacation home! Thank You!”

“Very Spacious, Clean, Great Kitchen! The property was very spacious with enough beds for our 6 person family. The twin beds were perfect and the day bed in the living room was great to lounge on. It was clean and the kitchen was well appointed, with a great selection of pots and pans and place settings. The plates, bowls and utensils were like new. It really felt like a vacation home. We loved the many electric candles that made the ambiance very calming at night. The few issues we had were quickly resolved by the property manager.”
