Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present “Forest Hideaway”! Sleeps up to 4 adults & 1 child age 12 or under.

Located just a 5 minute drive from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, this updated 1268 square feet, 2-bedroom, 2-bath Comstock cottage features many of the unique historic touches that make Carmel architecture so unique. Nestled in a sunny spot surrounded by pines and oaks with a distant view of Point Lobos and the blue Pacific over a canopy of trees. Pebble Beach®, Monterey and Pacific Grove are just 10 minutes away by car; Big Sur is a scenic 45-minute drive.

Park at street level in the quiet residential neighborhood and descend a few steps to a courtyard with potted plants and surrounded by a privacy screen of shrubs. A table, 4 chairs, an umbrella and a grill are provided so you can enjoy this secluded setting.

The front entrance leads to a living room facing southwest with old growth paneling that comes alive with color with a bright sunset. Carpeting throughout the home is beige with a white vaulted ceiling and a gas burning Carmel-stone fireplace. A wall of windows reveals forest and a view of the distant ocean. A long narrow deck runs along the back and side of the house with rocking chairs and an Adirondack chaise.

A cozy grouping of furnishings in front of the fireplace includes a plush sofa/chaise combination that can become a queen bed, burl-wood coffee table, white leather loveseat, Asian chest end table and a flat-screen TV.

A den is situated just off the front entrance overlooking the courtyard and has an Asian-inspired desk and Asian wall art . Built-in shelving and cabinets hold books, games and playing cards.

The kitchen will make gourmet meal preparation fun and easy. Features include a large skylight, stainless steel countertops and backsplash, stainless steel electric range, refrigerator and dishwasher and a bistro table for 2.

The dining room opens to the living room but inhabits its own space along the wall of windows, providing diners a peek of the ocean in the distance. An oval wooden table with upholstered chairs can seat up to 8. Beautiful dishes, glassware, serving pieces and linens allow you to entertain in high style. Open the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck and enjoy cocktails at sunset with a distant peak of Point Lobos.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Bedroom #1, with treetop views, has a king bed with a new, plush Novaform mattress (2023), a wicker dresser and bedside table, a 32" TV, and white shell lamps. Gaze out through the forest in a wicker chair.
The en suite bathroom has a tile shower, white luxury towels and spa amenities.

Bedroom #2 has twin beds that can become a split king with memory foam topper, with sea-foam blue comforter, sand-colored duvet and coastal art.

Bathroom #2 has a shower over tub; its colors of blues and sea-foam green and sea-inspired accents makes you feel close to the ocean.

One car can be parked in the attached garage, on-street parking is available for up to two modest sized vehicles. The garage contains a washer and dryer and everything needed for a trip to the beach.

Two Wonderful Patios!

by Half Moon Bay, CA

4 of 5

This is a very comfortable house with two wonderful patios. The home sits on a steep hillside giving the back deck a real treehouse feeling. There is a big view of Pt Lobos in the distance. Back Patio is private and gets sun through day. It’s has older finishes inside, though the fire place and sitting area are just fine. Thanks to the property management company for such easy communication and professionalism.

Good location, house was comfy, though a bit outdated. Wonderful patio with an ocean view. Quiet neighborhood. Carpet needs cleaning and a few maintenance issues need addressing.

This is the perfect Carmel hideaway! Big thanks to the home owners and to Sanctuary for making our extended 6-month stay so comfortable and memorable. This gorgeous property is exactly as described. The furniture and decorations are really cool and tasteful. We loved the high lofted ceilings and the sunny deck. We didn't know it before booking, but you can see a bit of the ocean through the trees off the dining room corner window. This was such a pleasant surprise. We never had any maintenance issues or concerns...but we did interact with the property management team when they dropped off extra pillows and a surprise holiday gift. Very thoughtful! The location is amazing...very close to Route 1 (but no traffic noise at all). And just a two-minute car ride to downtown Carmel. The neighborhood is quiet and perfect for going on walks. The neighbors were super friendly and respectful. Plenty of parking. We would definitely stay here again in the future. This is the 3rd house we've rented from Sanctuary and all are highly recommended.
