Description

Welcome to “Otter’s Rest!” Home sleeps up to 6 adults.

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

Do you want to watch whales from the master suite while you relax on the deck? Listen to the breaking surf lull you to sleep? Or take a short 1-block walk to greet the sunrise on Monterey Bay? Enjoy all this and more at this beautiful 2-story, 3,600 sq ft Pacific Grove home just a block from the Monterey Bay shoreline. The recently updated, art-filled 3-bedroom, 3-bath house has a tranquilizing contemporary feel with spacious rooms and Asian accents.

The living room features vaulted ceilings, poured concrete floors, wood-burning fireplace and flat screen TV and comfortable furnishings. Two built-in corner window seats offer spots for reading or contemplation. French doors off the living room open to a fenced-in back patio. A hot tub (refundable deposit required), gas fire pit, gas grill, teak bench, table and chairs for 4 make it a wonderful place for outdoor entertaining.

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.

The drop-dead gorgeous kitchen would be the envy of a professional chef. Highlights include black and green granite countertops, a large central island, tile floors and backsplash, maple cabinets, an oversized refrigerator, counter-top gas stove, double ovens, dishwasher and a microwave. Enjoy delicious meals in a separate dining room with a round wooden table with 6 upholstered chairs. A decorative fireplace that can be lit with battery operated candles and recessed wall shelves display glass objets d'art.

The first floor also includes a bedroom in a seashell theme with a queen bed with luxury linens and a door that opens to a small patio. A contemporary bathroom has cocoa-colored tile around the etched stainless steel sink and tub/shower, a slate floor and maple cabinets. Down the hall is a laundry room with washer and dryer and a door to the 2-car garage. Parking is also available in the driveway or on the street.

A large staircase leads to the 2nd story and an open area with floor-to-ceiling windows and built-in shelving stocked with games, puzzles and children's books. At the far end is an office space with ocean and park views.

A spectacular master suite includes a sitting area with upholstered love seat and chair and binoculars for whale watching. A king bed is fitted with luxury linens. A wall of built-in shelving is stocked with art books. French doors open to a large deck with bay views. A spacious bathroom in soothing neutral tones includes a large soaking tub framed in marble tiles with ocean views (and privacy shades), a glass-framed walk-in shower and a generous walk-in closet.

A 2nd master has a king with Memory Foam topper (that can become 2 twins) with 2 bedside tables, a flat-screen TV and an upholstered chaise. A door set into floor-to-ceiling windows opens to a deck with bay views. A short hallway bordered by mirrored closets leads to a bathroom with sand-colored tiles and a glass-enclosed walk-in shower.

This home is just blocks from the local shops and restaurants of Pacific Grove. The quaint village of Carmel, the historic sites of Monterey and the world-class golf courses of Pebble Beach are a 10-minute drive. A beautiful walking/bike trail is just a stone's throw away.

"My family and I spent a week in August at Otter’s Rest. The home is very spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect for biking, walking the coastal trail and proximity to all that Monterey has to offer. The ocean view from the upstairs master is beautiful and the backyard is great with fire pit and hot tub. Fantastic stay with out family!"

"Slice of Paradise!  This was the perfect house in every way. Spacious, great light with beautiful views of the ocean from several rooms. And so very comfy. There were three of us gals on a tennis weekend. We each had our own room and bathroom. When we weren't on the tennis court, we were in the house. Wanted to savor every minute we had in this incredible space. Ended up doing take out for our dinners rather than dining out so we could enjoy the beautiful kitchen with it's massive island. We set out our meals and hung for hours before hitting the hot tub. Perfect size hot tub and close enough to the back door that it was an easy in and out. It's in a very beautiful, quiet neighborhood. You can walk the coast forever from this location. We didn't want to leave. We finally turned the key on the last second before check out!!! Will definitely consider renting this house again."

"Comfortable, well equipped, and clean home!  Our family stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. We had 6 adults and 1 toddler. The bedrooms were all large and comfortable for the 3 families. The main master suite upstairs was absolutely stunning and very large- the walk in closet made a perfect spot for our toddler to sleep quietly!  We enjoyed ALL of the dishes and pots/pans in the kitchen for our cooking and the Gas BBQ came in handy for grilling steaks. The house felt very comfortable, welcoming, and had everything we needed. It was a short 3-5 min walk straight to the ocean and we could even hear the ocean waves from our master bedroom! Thank you for a wonderful stay."

The street is very quite. It is easy to get to all the great places...Monarch Sanctuary, the aquarium, the wharf, kayaking, biking, and shopping."

"Great location; beautiful home!  Otter's Rest was a perfect place to celebrate my 60th birthday! The home is very nicely appointed and there is plenty of room for three couples, each with their own bath. The kitchen was a pleasure to be in and meal preparation was all part of the memorable experience. Julia, the manager, was more than acommodating. When she learned it was my birthday, she had the place decorated with balloons out front and inside, along with other birthday bling. It was such a nice surprise to drive up to the property and see it all decorated! Julia continued to impress us with her responsiveness for anything we needed. It turns out that her birthday was the same as mine, so that was a fun coincidence. I would highly recommend this home for its location, comfort level and beautiful furnishings."

"Fantastic location and beautiful view!  I'd recently experienced a lovely girls' weekend in Pacific Grove and asked my girlfriend who'd arranged where she had found the lovely, clean, well-stocked home. She recommended Sanctuary so I booked a long weekend with my husband through the same company, albeit a smaller home (as we were just a couple and not 9 women!). We were not disappointed as this home was as lovely as the first one I'd experienced with my girlfriends. This home, too, was clean, well-stocked and nicely decorated. The stand-out for us was the locale: Just minutes from the beach trail and a short drive (or long walk) to downtown Pacific Grove. I loved looking thru the binoculars out to the sea every morning and afternoon."

"Perfect location in quiet neighborhood. Walk to the beach! Otters Rest was the perfect accommodation for us (3 couples). The proximity to downtown Monterey, 17 mile drive and Carmel is central and easy access. The house was lovely and the kitchen is perfect for cooking together and enjoying the house. Will definitely stay here again. The company and point of contact for the residence was very professional and gracious. They made our stay even better."

"Outstanding in Every Way! The photos you see on the listing match precisely what awaited us!  Home was everything advertised and much more! Great location, quiet neighborhood, excellent beach walks and spectacular ocean views!  This home is well equipped in so many ways!  Everything is in beautiful shape. Enjoyed our morning coffee and ocean view from the master bedroom every morning. (Did I mention the views are amazing)?? The decor is lovely and furniture quite comfortable. There are plenty of tools for cooking, serving, eating and entertaining in the gourmet kitchen and we definitely enjoyed the outdoor grill, fire pit and hot tub. This was truly home away from home for an entire week. We look forward to renting this home again in the near future and have recommended to friends. It was a pleasure to rent from you."

"Spectacular house, spectacular location!  This is a great house for three couples or a family with kids as there are three bedrooms and three baths. My husband and I shared the house with just one other couple and it felt very roomy. The kitchen is large enough for all to share in the meal preparations, which we always enjoy doing. I acted as chef and had three su chefs. The location is ideal...close to the ocean, but in a quiet neighborhood with little car traffic. We enjoyed walks to the ocean to watch the high surf. Highly recommend this house. The manager, Julia, attended to all concerns amazingly speedy, making sure we were happy with everything."

"Listen to the waves in this spacious retreat!  We just got back from a lovely trip to Pacific Grove. Otter's Rest was a great house for our multi-generational family. The bedrooms upstairs are huge, plenty of room to spread out. We used the hot tub, BBQ, and fire pit, all while listening to the crashing waves. We walked down to the beach often (and all around town). It's such a wonderful town for strolling. The kids played in the park across the street. It is such a quiet, peaceful area. We loved the heated floors downstairs. So cozy! One rainy afternoon, we lit the fireplace and snuggled up on the couches. We liked the pet coverings on the couches. We didn't have pets with us, but nice to know they can wash the coverings in between visits. The kitchen was very well-appointed. We have stayed at many VRBO rentals and this kitchen had just about everything. We will be back!"

"Beautiful Getaway!  What a beautiful home to spend time in while exploring Pacific Grove and the Monterey Peninsula! Three senior couples couldn't have been more pleased. The home is lovely and kept clean, including windows, by the home manager, Julia. The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals to enjoy in the lovely dining room. You can walk to the shore and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific. Walk as far as you wish. One unique attraction, very close to the home, is the Point Pinos Lighthouse which dates from 1855. It is a delightful, historic lighthouse. The village, or old downtown Pacific Grove is also worth a visit. You can't go wrong with staying here. We also enjoyed a drive to Carmel and Carmel Valley, the Aquarium and Monterey State Historic Park."

"Wonderful home / location for family vacation!  Beautiful / comfortable and well equipped home in a nice quiet location of Pacific Grove. The house is immaculate and we enjoyed hanging out as a family with easy walk to both the water as well as various shops / restaurants in PG. We used the outdoor amenities quite a bit and our boys enjoyed climbing on the rocks near the water and trees at the small park on the street. We would definitely return for a stay at this home the next time we are in PG."

"This house was beautiful, but, as important, was well appointed. Too frequently, rental homes have only a hodge-podge of mismatched pots, pans and utensils. This property had full, matching sets of all the necessities. Everything was well stocked. There were excellent, complete instructions for all appliances, the spa, the fire pit and the fire place. There were clear explanations of the rules of the property, and referrals for local restaurants. The property is well maintained and was fresh and clean for our arrival. The locations is fantastic! Walking distance to Lover's Point Park and Cannery Row. Just over a block to the shore/ running paths. Especially appreciated was the snack and beverage tray with a welcome note that greeted us. We would stay here again in a heart beat, and would recommend it highly."

"Fabulous Home In Pacific Grove!! We spent four nights at this beautiful home (3 couples) just blocks from Monterey Bay. Great location for exercise and beautiful sights - many whale sightings. The home was clean and comfortable with everything you need - just bring your clothes and food. The kitchen was wonderful for preparing meals - lots of room and top-of-the-line appliances. A nice welcome gift of wine, crackers & cheese was a nice touch. Management was very helpful when we had questions. Definitely recommend this property. Restaurants we loved: Dametra Cafe in Carmel, Vivolo's Chowder House in Pacific Grove and Nepenthe's in Big Sur."

“Restorative to the Soul: Otter's Rest! Swiss philosopher Alain de Botton says it best: "architecture of happiness". Otter's Rest is one of those places that keeps you yearning for just one more night. The understated exterior is the perfect backdrop for for some of the most beautiful ocean vistas in the world. Once inside it is apparent how sophisticated and luxurious simplicity can be. From the inviting living room, serious chef's kitchen, elegant dining room, three spacious bedrooms , baths to dream views from office this is our favorite vacation home. From the ease of booking with Joyce at Sanctuary Rentals to our interaction with the impeccable house manager, Julia we found Otter's Rest to be everything and more. We cannot wait to return for our THIRD visit. Thank you Annie!”

“Great Location! Very enjoyable time at Otter's Rest. This has the best equipped kitchen in any house we've ever rented. We loved being so close to the ocean and parks. We had our happy hour upstairs watching the whales. Julia (house manager) was very helpful. A couple things that would make this place even better: Upgrade the TV (very basic channel selections, no DVR, etc.) The teak furniture in the backyard is really weathered. No TV in master bedroom, but there really isn't a wall for it (all windows). Overall, a very nice stay. Thanks.”

“Serene And Elegant Home, Close To Every Attraction! As others have noted, the photos do not do these home justice! It is simply beautiful. We were a little concerned about it being only 3 bedrooms for our group of 8 (3 adults, 5 kids), but the home is very spacious - especially the 2 upstairs bedrooms. I We loved being in Pacific Grove - the town is so charming and has easy proximity to both Monterey and Carmel. This home was the perfect home base for our family getaway. Some of the highlights include: LARGE UPDATED KITCHEN - we ate nearly every meal in the house and the kitchen was very well appointed and beautifully updated. We spent much of our time standing around the island chatting, snacking, and cooking MASTER SUITE - HUGE! Ocean view, large tub, and sitting area made for a peaceful retreat. OUTDOOR PATIO - The kids loved running around in the back and we enjoyed eating outdoors on a couple of the warm evenings. STREET LOCATION - The street is very peaceful without through traffic. Only 2 blocks to the beach, we enjoyed frequent walks down to the water. It is a beautiful neighborhood! We loved just being together in this house and really felt at home. In our 4 day stay we were able to hit the beach, visit the aquarium, go to Carmel, ride an 8 person Surrey on the bike path, go on runs along the trails, and take in all the sights and sounds of this lovely location. It was very well appointed and we enjoyed our welcome wine and cheese! Thank you for a lovely stay, We hope to return - soon!”

“Infinitely Better Than A Hotel! This home is a beautiful retreat in the idyllic town of Pacific Grove. It is tastefully designed and furnished, complete with extras like a house-wide speaker system and heated floors. The home is very large (we initially passed it by, not believing it was our rental) yet cozy in the common areas. The outdoor area feels like an oasis / zen garden, and the views of the ocean from several spots in the house make it that much more special. In addition, the rental company added a few extras (welcoming wine & cheese, deals at a local spa), that brought the experience up a level. Highly satisfied and highly recommended.”

“Can’t Wait To Come Back! I’ve been visiting Pacific Grove for at least 3 – 4 times a year for the past 7 years, but this was the first time I ever rented a vacation home or tried the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals company. The reason I chose Otter’s Rest was: 1) its location, 2) I could bring my dogs with me (and they go everywhere with me!) and, 3) the interesting look of the house. I can tell you, I was NOT disappointed. The house is peaceful and comfortable (not stuffy). I loved the big kitchen with its butcher block island and the window by the kitchen sink that I could look out towards the ocean and the back yard while I washed dishes. There’s a small park just across the street from the house that’s perfect for dog “potty breaks” if you bring your dogs. And what’s extra great about it is that people in the neighborhood are conscientious about picking up after their dogs. It was super clean. I really enjoyed my early morning walks with the dogs. A few minutes walk down to Oceanview Blvd we’d hop onto the walking path that hugs the coast headed toward Lover’s Point. It was my morning “nirvana.” Walking along the ocean, waves breaking, birds chirping, an occasional “good morning” from other people walking by… It was heaven. The master bedroom in the house is very comfortable (the bed was great!) and has windows that face the ocean. I loved opening the window in the evening and hearing the sound of the waves and seals barking in the distance. The neighborhood is awesome!! I met a few of the people living in the neighborhood on my dog walks and all I can say is - - - what a super bunch of people! Really friendly! The guest book mentions to be respectful of the neighbors and it’s so right! What a great neighborhood. For being my first vacation rental home, I could not have made a better choice. I think the only thing I would have changed is the couch in the living room. The couch is not very comfortable for sitting on or for watching movies at night. But that would be it! Everything else was great!” [note from management: the couch in the living room has been replaced with a brand new one

“Paradise Is Here! We stayed at Esplanade 1/29-2/2/14 to celebrate my 50th bday. When we arrived, we were absolutely in awe! We thought the pictures of this home were gorgeous, but honestly they didn't do it justice. It was even MORE beautiful and perfect than the pictures! The house was spotlessly clean and stocked with ANYTHING and more that your heart could desire. It's spacious and modern with it's beautiful art and décor, walls of windows, gorgeous gourmet kitchen, dreamy deep tub and large master bath, dramatic lighting, romantic and serene spa and adorable yard with gorgeous plants, the wondrous sound of the waves at sea, plenty of seating, bbq and a fire pit! I've been going to Monterey twice a year since I was a child and I've NEVER stayed in a place as much as I just wanted to stay at Esplanade and enjoy! Our loving dog had a wonderful time too! Our kids were able to spend a night and 2 days with us and it was glorious! The home is a 3 minute walk to the ocean with a magnificent walking trail that goes on forever! Sanctuary Vacation Rentals gave us top notch customer service and we wanted for nothing. We enjoyed working out, many long walks along the ocean and wooded areas, watching the seals and otters play, dreaming on the beach, many fabulous meals at The Beach House, Chart House, C Restaurant and Sardine Factory and shopping. We picked gourmet dinners up to bring back to this gorgeous home because we couldn't get enough of it! I have recommended it to several friends and they are planning their trips! We are planning our next trip already! If you love the Monterey/Pacific Grove area, you must rent this fabulous home and if you've never experienced paradise, well, look no further! Thank you again for everything and for making this my BEST birthday ever!”

“Beautiful Home, Great Location! We stayed in "Otter's Rest" during Pebble Beach Concours Week 2013. The house is very well appointed with lots of bed, bath, and table linens; attractive furniture; fireplaces inside and out; a large hot tub; and more kitchen equipment than we needed. I appreciated that the two attractive upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and the landing at the top of the stairs is big enough for a double airbed. We also enjoyed having a good sound system and laundry facilities. The downstairs bedroom is convenient for older or handicapped guests. The location is great for anyone who wants to enjoy the coast. I was impressed with Sanctuary Vacation Rentals quick response when we checked in and found a few things not to our satisfaction. Because of this, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Otter's Rest again and would recommend it to other travelers. One note: the two-car garage has two single-car doors. That wouldn't matter to most people, but could be important to guests bringing a show car to Concours Week. Oh - and two more things - we appreciated the upstairs office area and great Wi-Fi, as well as the cozy window benches in the living room.”
