Description

Welcome to “Avalon by the Sea”! Home sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children age 12 or under.

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

You'll love this bright, cheerful home located in Del Rey Oaks, a quiet bedroom community within 10 minutes of Carmel, Monterey and other major Monterey Peninsula attractions. If you're a tennis aficionado, courts are within walking distance.

The contemporary 2,100 square feet, 2-bedroom, 2-bath plus den is faced in sand-colored Carmel stone and sits up on a rise that offers an elevated position over other homes in the neighborhood. A terraced front garden is planted with drought-tolerant flowering plants.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary 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.

Your spirits will lift the moment you open the door to this feel-good kind of place. Prints of birds and botanicals and a crisp lime-green and white color scheme bring nature indoors in this immaculate dwelling that features a spacious great room, high beamed ceilings and hardwood floors.

A small entryway opens to the sunken living room with a massive Carmel stone fireplace, white leather couches and easy chair with light pouring in through large arched windows on either side of the fireplace. One wall holds numerous prints of birds, plants and flowers, establishing a theme that repeats throughout the house. You will love sitting in this room and playing games, having long conversations or watching movies on the 36” flat-screened TV tucked away in a wooden amoire.

Slightly elevated and completely open to the living room is the dining room with an off-white caned breakfront cabinet holding glassware and nick-knacks and an off-white table with cane-backed chairs that can seat up to 6. Ceiling fans in both the living and dining rooms contribute to the house's island feel.

The dining room is contiguous with a chef's dream-come-true kitchen - an absolute stunner with golden granite surfaces, pine cabinetry and a carefully conceived floor plan. At the perimeter is a bar with stool-seating for 4 for casual meals or conversing with the cook. The main work area revolves around a large island containing sinks, a built-in stove top and a stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a stainless steel oven and microwave and a large refrigerator faced with pine. Everything you could think of for preparing and serving memorable gourmet meals is here, including a selection of cookbooks.

Brew your morning coffee and exit from the kitchen with your cup of java to an enclosed patio with a couch, chairs and a table.

The spacious master bedroom has a sophisticated French feel with a cool robin's-egg-blue and white palette, broad-striped wallpaper, wall to wall white rug, filmy white draperies, a white-caned dresser, mirror and end tables, and a white wrought-iron king bed with luxurious linens. There is a small private deck with a lounge chaise for sunbathing or reading a book. A small seating area in the master includes a white sofa and an arm chair. Take a relaxing bath by candlelight in the deep spa tub with jets in the master bathroom, his-and-hers sinks and separate shower.

A second bedroom in a soft buttery yellow has a white wrought-iron queen bed with bird-themed coverlet and white end tables. A second bath with a shower has a spa feel with its taupe and beige tiling.

Relax with a book in a third room, that could be used as an office, with a sofa that converts to a queen bed to sleep up to two children.

The house is extremely spacious and feels very new/upgraded. I would certainly rent this location again!"

"Beautiful home and property.  The home was better than we thought it would be. Attention to detail throughout. Beautiful living area and well stocked kitchen; the master suite is amazing. I can't imagine that anyone would be disappointed staying here.  It is convenient to the aquarium, wineries, wharf and restaurants. Do not rent this believing that you will be on or, near the water; it is not visible and is a 10 minute drive.  The ease of renting was fantastic."

"Absolutely Perfect. I loved everything about our stay at this beautiful home! The decorating was so calming and beautiful—warm and inviting. It was immaculately clean. I'll confess that we didn't once turn on the TV but we invited friends to cook dinner with us in the amazingly stocked and big, open kitchen. I appreciated the little extras like foil and plastic wrap and spices. We read out on the patio with the gorgeous flowers bursting everywhere. We walked down the quiet street and listening to the birds and the trickling stream. We played games around the table and enjoyed a late night relaxing bath in the jacuzzi tub. Oh my goodness! It was absolutely perfect! Thank you for allowing us to feel at home in your lovely home! We were close to Seaside, just about 7 minutes from downtown Monterey but tucked away in a quieter area with very little traffic. Close to a Safeway to get a few groceries. Enjoyed the aquarium one day and kayaking in the bay another. Perfect vacation!"

"Fantastic value! This is a wonderful rental property and unique in that it feels much more like a home than a house. The open floor plan is both aerie and comfortable. Further, the property is totally turn-key -- including the kitchen, which has EVERYTHING anyone would need to plate a gourmet meal. The house is very well located near Monterey and Carmel (about 10 and 20 mins away respectively) and 5 mins from major grocery and drug stores. The property managers are wonderful. They added a numbers of thoughtful Christmas touches that made a wonderful stay so much more special."

"House with Everything! This beautiful house in Monterey is fabulous. Four women stayed during a wine trip -- comfortable beds, even in the study with the pull out bed. The kitchen seriously had every single thing you could possibly need -- pots, pans, dishes, spices -- wine openers! The rooms were immaculate -- they were decorated in soothing tones with nature accents. We would definitely rent this home again. Attention to detail is evident from appliances to furniture. Outside space was awesome."

"Outstanding! This home was absolutely perfect, with every amenity one could need. The kitchen is stocked for a gourmet cook, with plenty of utensils and quality pots and pans. We enjoyed making smoothies every morning, watching the hummingbirds go from flower to flower in the lovely landscape and in the evening we enjoyed dinner on the patio listening to the lovely fountain. These are five star accommodations with ample space to relax, we'll have a hard time ever staying in a hotel again. Everything you need (grocery, restaurants, attractions) is nearby. Would recommend to anyone looking for a long term stay on the Monterey peninsula. Clean, neat and upscale."

“Beautiful, clean- safe for scent-sensitive people! Clean, very close to Laguna Seca. Garage. The property is close to the airport, however, one cannot hear the planes much at all. Plenty of outdoor entertaining space, weather approving. plenty of sunlight inside. My personal favorite amenity: unscented laundry detergent. Most times I am unable to sleep due to the scented detergent on the sheets on the beds... not so in this house! Plenty of room for everyone, spacious bathrooms, perfect kitchen, has most things an aspiring chef would need. Great service, I would recommend this place to a friend."

“Everything You Could Ask For! This home was fantastic! It more than exceeded my expectations. It had everything. The kitchen was complete in every way. All we had to do was grocery shop. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms had very fluffy towels and spa robes. There was even access to laundry and coolers, beach towels too. The location was perfect, 5-15 minutes was the longest it took us to get to everything in town. Great access to highways, groceries gas, whatever you needed. Definitely stop by the visitors center, very helpful people there and they gave us so many options for off beat things to do that I did not find online. I would recommend this home to anyone. We plan on returning ourselves. Thanks for the hospitality!”

Beautifully renovated and top notch kitchen. There was even a printer to email photos to! Something about a physical 4x6 just puts a huge smile on my face. All in all, simply relaxing. Highly recommended. :)”

“Perfectly Lovely Family Getaway Retreat ~ We had a very fun 4-day visit to the area, and staying in this light and bright, clean, well-furnished, quality home was a big part of it, exceeding our expectations. The kitchen was well stocked, open and spacious ~ large enough to accommodate our family of 30-year old chef wannabes. Thank you to the owners and SVR for an excellent experience, from the fresh flowers that greeted us to the well-written instructions. It was all perfectly lovely!”

Definitely want a car but it is easy to access Monterey and Pacific Grove. Quiet location. We were all very pleased with our stay and would highly recommend it.”

“Home Away From Home! 5 Stars! This home was exactly as advertised -- gorgeous and luxurious. Fabulous Chet's kitchen, comfortable beds, inviting living room and beautiful patio. We cooked, slept in, played board games and generally enjoyed a great family vacation. The rental company was informative and attentive. Would definitely recommend this property!”

“Monterey For The 4th! After experiencing the heat from Sacramento, and Tampa we went to Monterey. The house we rented was spacious, clean with all the things working. Nice kitchen with complete utensils. We hated having to leave. In addition the Bay, and Carmel was not that far, where the meals, and shopping were of course excellent. We would recommend this property. It was comfortable for 4 adults, 1 child. Could easily house 6 adults.”
