Description

Welcome to Lilli’s House! Home sleeps up to 6 adults.

Lilli's House has been a favorite vacation rental destination for many families since 2003. We are delighted to offer this charming home as a new addition to the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals portfolio. The same family still owns the home and it will continue to have their warmth and involvement in addition to the Sanctuary touch. Go directly to the SVR website to read many 5-star reviews that once appeared on the Owners' Homeaway/VRBO listing (unfortunately, with the recent management transfer, Homeaway was unable to move the reviews over to the new listing. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is dedicated to keeping the same level of service as before).

A Carmel home that was a renowned gathering place for local notables in the 1960s and ‘70s is still a wonderful place to get together with family and friends, with a patio that’s perfect for conversation and entertaining, and comfortable rooms that lend themselves to complete relaxation.

Located in a quiet Carmel Woods neighborhood, the 2400 square feet, 3-bedroom, 2 bath residence is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, yet still close enough to walk to Carmel-by-the-Sea’s restaurants, galleries and boutiques. The remodeled single-story home is just 10 minutes away from golfing and dining at Pebble Beach, or 10 minutes from the Victorian homes and butterfly groves of Pacific Grove. It’s a 15-minute drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row and a half hour from Big Sur.

The house was built in 1950 by a well-known local clothing designer and her husband, and in past decades, it was a popular happy hour spot for politicians, artists, writers and celebrities. Still owned by the family, the 2,400-square-foot home continues to offer comfort and style, beginning with the fenced front patio framed with moss-covered coastal live oaks, azaleas and ferns, ideal for drinks, dinner or just lounging.

Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows give expansive views of the patio garden. A unique triangular gas-burning Carmel stone fireplace opens up to both living room and entry areas. Radiant heating throughout most of the house keeps it cozy even on foggy days, and upholstered sofas and chairs in the living room and family rooms are welcome places to curl up with a book or enjoy a glass of wine.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renowned Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, 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.

Newly updated appliances in the kitchen are complemented by hand-painted tiles created by a local artist, and the adjacent dining room includes a tiled bar area and a custom-made oak table with seating for 8. Hardwood floors join the kitchen and dining room, and a washer and dryer are available off the kitchen.

The living room includes a large built-in bookcase with a wide variety of reading material available. A family room just off the living room includes a foosball table as well as a 47-inch HDTV with DVD player.

The master bedroom includes has a sleigh queen bed and views of the private patio, a 40" HDTV and an interior door leads to a tiled bathroom with glass shower, pedestal sink and adjustable mirror, as well as a separate half bath with toilet and sink.

Down the hallway is a second bedroom with twin beds, a bathroom with a shower, and a third bedroom with a sleigh queen bed and a private door leading out to the front patio. All bedrooms have new luxury bedding.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

“Peaceful and Charming. It was like living in an atrium. Walls of windows, super cozy, quiet, and peaceful, with modern amenities, updated kitchen and bathroom and beautiful courtyard with indoor outdoor feel. Quiet and serene, yet close to town. Perfect. Loved working with Sanctuary Vacation Rentals. They really took care of us for a few months while we looked for a long term home."

“A Fabulous Carmel Home! Just thought I would let you know that we SO ENJOYED and LOVED your beautiful Carmel home! The pictures on the website are exactly what it looks like. Your house was filled with love, clean and so well-maintained and this comes from such a neat/clean freak! We loved the flow of the house, the beautiful windows bringing the outdoor in and also, all the cozy seating areas along with the fireplace! We enjoyed walking, shopping and dining in Carmel and also, strolling on the beach! We went into Monterey one day but mostly just enjoyed Carmel and the ambiance of your beautiful home. We appreciated using your well-equipped kitchen, as we have some wonderful cooks in our family, Your dining room and your outdoor patio was perfect for all our gourmet meals or just for our wine, cheese and bread! Thank you for your amazing customer service and for giving us the opportunity to rent your lovely home for our annual cousin reunion!”

“Truly Wonderful! What a wonderful house!! We had everything we needed supplied by the exceptional owners. They were great to work with and we would love to return. Every day we walked into the beautiful town and down to the beach...it was heaven!! We would recommend Katy's for brunch, driving Carmel Valley, and visiting Point Lobos Park. Overall, do visit to relax. Even the property has two garden courtyards to enjoy and architecturally designed to bring the outdoors in with the huge windows and doors.”

“A Real Gem! This house is so warm and charming and comfortable. My family rented this house over the holidays and found it to be absolutely perfect for entertaining, relaxing and feeling at home. Everything was clean and in order, and all the appliances, light fixtures, electronics, etc. worked perfectly. My husband has Parkinson's and it was especially nice to be in a single level home with such good lighting. I would definitely rent this house again...soon. Thank you for sharing your family home with us.”

"Beautiful, charming and well-cared for Carmel home. Our first impression of 'Lilli's House' was that the description on the rental site did not do it justice. A private, landscaped courtyard is the perfect welcome to this property. When you enter the house you immediatly feel the warmth and charm of this very well-tended home. The layout makes it feel very spacious and a family or group of friends can easily feel very comfortable without being cramped - with a sitting room, living room and family room, there is plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is very nice (nicer than my own) with new stainless appliances and well stocked cabinets, and the large oak dining table is a great gathering spot. All of the provisions from kitchen ware, linens, appliances, etc are abundant and high-quality. The bedrooms are nicely decorated and have plenty of closet space. The bathrooms have been remodeled, again with quality and style - and there is a nice supply of fresh, fluffy towels. I can't say enough about how clean and well-maintained the house is, truly not a speck of dust (we actually tried to find one!) The house is located in a nice area of well-cared-for family homes. We felt very comfortable walking around the neighborhood, even at night. The only downside for us was that we only had 4 days to enjoy this property. The owners were great to work with and have really thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable and stress-free. Our last vacation rental experience was such a nightmare and the owner so terrible to deal with that I was apprehensive about trying it again. Debbie and Robin were so great that they restored my faith that there are honest rental home owners who truly care about their guests' experience. I highly recommend this property to anyone travelling to Carmel. P.S. When I was first considering this property, I was a bit concerned that there were only 2 reviews on this site, however a google search turned up more than 80 glowing reviews on other sites.

“Enjoyable Week in Carmel-by-the-Sea! Our family of 4 spent a week at this home in the beginning of September. We found it to be very comfortable. It was nicely appointed and had an inviting decor. It looked exactly as we expected from the photos we'd seen of the house on this website. This house worked well for us. We had a single rental car and were able to easily split up because the house was a fairly short walk into town with all its shops, art galleries, and restaurants (we especially liked Dametra Cafe). It's a bit longer walk to the beach, where we saw people light fires on the sand around dusk. Pt Lobos State Park is a short drive away and I visited it 4 times that week, to give some idea of how highly I regard that park. We saw sea otters, seals, sea lions, and coastal mule deer. We also made it down Highway 1 to Big Sur for the first time (no mudslides or rock slides as on earlier trips!), where we went to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. The scenery all along Hwy 1 is amazing. I would definitely recommend staying at this home.”

“‘Lilli’ Lovers This was our 2nd year to stay at "Lilli's" House, which is a very clean, tastefully decorated, warm and relaxing vacation home. The Smith owners keep the property well maintained and very comfortable for their guests. Especially liked the floor to ceiling windows which allowed beautiful views of the gardens. We found ourselves spending many hours on the private patio. We loved the short walk to Carmel to get exercise and the morning paper, or venture farther to the beach to enjoy all of the very happy dogs on their morning run and chasing balls. We take full advantage of the many activities that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer....sailing, whale watching, golf, hiking at Point Lobos and Asilomar, Kayaking and otter watching at Elkhorn Slough, horse back riding at Pebble Beach, 4th of July at Devendorf Park, Monterey Museum of Art and Aquarium, driving down to Hearst Castle and having dinner at Nepenthe at Big Sur. The area has many very good restaurants. A few of our favorites are Mission Ranch, Katy's Place (breakfast), Carmel Belle (lunch, sit outside and watch the world go by), Il Fornaio. We enjoyed it so much, we are returning next year!!”

“Wonderful Stay My family and I stayed for 4 nights / 5 days and we all had a lovely time. The house has everything you could need and the inner courtyard was a great and relaxing focal point. With light streaming in from both sides of the house, it really felt so inviting and cozy. Everyone's favorite was the gas fireplace - when not out and about, we all found ourselves gathered around the fireplace relaxing and hanging out."

"This wonderful home just wraps itself around you!! Four adults thoroughly enjoyed their stay in this very comfortable and well appointed home. Cleanliness and crisp, laundered linens make this like a top notch hotel. The front courtyard and rear patio are both inviting and meticulously kept. Our only problem was a freezer compartment which did not operate well, but the kitchenware and appliances were all functional and clean. A walk to Carmel shops was too far for us, but we did not mind the drive and felt as though we were in a very private place when we returned."

Response from Owner: "Our guests were wonderful and we appreciate the comment on the freezer. We have since replaced and upgraded the entire refrigerator."

“Incredibly Memorable Time! We rented the house with our dearest friends to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversaries. We wanted a place to relax together at the end of the day without sitting on beds in a hotel or meeting in the hotel bar. We had exciting,wonderful days exploring the coast line; traveling to Monterey; the Route 1 coastal drive to Big Sur, breathtaking Hearst Castle; sea lions sunning; elephant seals lying on the beach. And after the breathtaking sights on the coast, we had quiet moments on the secluded patio at the house enjoying fine California wine. Walking to "town" was easy and the sunsets on the beach wonderful. The restaurants and town in Carmel were fabulous...didn't really need to go anywhere. We will return some day. The house was in fabulous condition. It is worth it!”

“Heaven On Earth! Our second visit to Lilli's House left us wanting to STAY. This is hands down the greatest rental home that our group of girls has ever enjoyed -- keep in mind we're comprised of two garden designer/horticulturists and an interior designer. The floor plan surrounding a patio, the lovely furnishings, the ammentities, the great kitchen, and the location make this the ideal Carmel getaway.Our favorite part of Lilli's is the wonderful "sense of place" that one feels there. It just has a good grounded "vibe" -- it is obvious that great things have happened here. Ten stars!”

“Lovely Reunion. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lilli's home. Pretty wooded setting. Great place for a six adult family reunion! The house is comfortable and charming, and spacious enough that everyone can do their own thing or be all together. Nice patio and outdoor barbecue facilities. A well-equipped kitchen, family room with games, TV, CD, DVD players. The owners, Debbie and Robin are very nice folks, kind and helpful, and they have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and fun.”

“Fabulous Home Away From Home! We spent a week at Lilli's house in August. 4 adults and 2 young children (2 and 5). It was the perfect setting. The courtyard is absolutely spectacular and so private. We attended a small family reunion in Carmel so each family member rented homes in the area. Lilli's house was walking distance to the other houses, just 1 short block away. Thank you so much for opening your home and history behind it to our family. IF we return to Carmel we will definitely stay here again- although coming from Seattle, the weather was pretty disappointing. :)”

“Robin & Debbie-Thank you so very much for the joy of offering your family home to visitors. It is perfectly remodeled, has everything one could want or need, is both cozy and practical yet elegantly appointed so you feel pampered at home, and located close enough to downtown to get a good walk. Our group of 6 women on vacation from our hubbies and families felt renewed and would come back again. Thanks for sharing this property with others.”

“The house was just perfect ! Our family (including our 2 little ones) really enjoyed the house and the location. We walked daily to downtown and beach. The house is greatly equipped, with everything you could need, including a great yard for the kids to play and the grown ups to relax.”

“We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. We were four adults and a four and two year old. Everybody had plenty of space to move around and not be on top of each other. The beautifully landscaped patio out the front door was enjoyed everyday by all. Not so close to town that we would walk in with our group but only a two minute drive and super close to all the fun stuff in Monterey as well. Definitley will return.”

“The house was perfect. The upgrades made the place even better than it was before. The house is about a 15 minute walk to Ocean Avenue and about 20 minutes to the ocean. Very quiet in the evenings.”

“It was our second experience there at Lilly's House for our annual family vacation in October. The spacious house with two separate court yards gave each of us our own area to do what we want. It was a very peaceful and relaxing setting making it a memorable vacation.”
