Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present "Ships Watch"! Sleeps up to 7 guests.

This lovely Victorian home in Pacific Grove harkens back to Monterey Bay’s past as a shipping and fishing port, with vintage nautical touches and coastal artifacts that will make guests feel as though they’ve stepped back in time.

At the same time, the 4-bedroom, 2-bath home has been extensively remodeled with modern conveniences and a spacious yard that’s perfect for barbecuing and entertaining.

Its location is also ideal for enjoying the wonders of Pacific Grove — it’s just a few steps from shopping and dining in the quaint downtown, or a 10-minute walk to the beach or to the butterfly groves. It’s also only 5 minutes by car to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach®.

Windows and skylights throughout the home bring in warm natural light as well as offering great views of Monterey Bay from the upper story.

The 1,400-square-foot two-story home, built in 1890, has been completely refurbished for guests’ comfort, with a nautical color scheme in reds, blues and tans, vintage furniture, a window seat in the front room’s bay window, a fully equipped kitchen and a backyard fenced for privacy, which includes a hand-laid flagstone patio.

The pet-friendly home features a cozy front room with a gas fireplace featuring hand painted tile, where games and books will keep guests entertained on evenings around the fire. A 50-inch HDTV is available over the fireplace, and an adjacent sitting area with chaise lounge and console table is another place to curl up with a good book.

The large dining room table seats 8 on slip-covered parson’s chairs, and the updated kitchen includes taupe tile floors, quartz composite counter tops, new appliances that include a gas range, and a deep porcelain farmhouse sink with gooseneck faucet.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Bedroom #1 with a queen bed is located downstairs, is decorated in the same vintage nautical theme, and the nearby bathroom on this level has a large custom-tiled shower in ocean colors as well as an adjustable shower head.

The second floor features three bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as a children’s play area with beanbag chairs and a TV with DVD player. Bedroom #2 has a California king bed, Bedroom #3 has two twin beds and Bedroom #4 has one twin bed. The bathroom on this upper level features vintage tile floors and a pedestal sink as well as an old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub to which an adjustable shower head has been added.

The back yard contains an outdoor kitchen with plumbed gourmet gas grill and granite counter top for food preparation. AN IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE YARD: Guests are asked to keep voices at a respectful volume at all times (conversations should not be heard outside the property line) and to bring all outdoor conversations/activities INSIDE by 8pm due to the close proximity of nearby neighbors who are sensitive to noise. Homes are close together in this tight-knit, quiet neighborhood.

A one-car garage with bonus room for beach gear is available as well, in addition to driveway and street parking.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome with pre-approval, an additional pet fee and a signed pet addendum.

This home is a monthly rental and we request that all nights of your stay are within the same calendar month. Some exceptions may be possible, with the approval of our team and the homeowner.

This vacation home is professionally managed by Sanctuary Vacation Rentals. With over 15 years of property management experience, Sanctuary strives to provide environments that nurture and inspire with all the comforts of home. Each home has beach towels, shower and bath amenities and spa-style robes. Our team is available 7 days a week to assist you. We look forward to hosting you!

Lovely family stay near the Ocean

by Los Altos CA

5 of 5

Overall Comment

We had a lovely stay at Ship's Watch. The kitchen is bright and fresh and the rest of the house is casual. The yard is nice with chairs (but remember to be quiet after 8pm.). You can walk 3 blocks to a bookstore/cafe, 5 to a fantastic bakery, and 8 to the beach.

It has a nice queen bedroom on the ground floor with a full bath around the corner. It also has a king bedroom at the top of the stairs which shares a bathroom with 2 cute little rooms--one suitable for a younger child.

Sanctuary Rentals is very responsive to any questions or concerns.

And the place is dog friendly which is welcome.

The garage is a bit small so will only fit a smaller car and you are asked to park the second car in the driveway.

Lovely Old House; Not Super Family Friendly

by Phoenix AZ

Overall Comment

This is a lovely old home with some thoughtful updates, especially to the kitchen. Very “by the sea” themed decor, which was fun for us as visitors. Be advised that there is one neighbor who is VERY sensitive to noise. She went out of her way at noon on a Saturday to come gripe at us for the “noise” our children were making (literally, she was complaining about the laughter of small children). The attic bedroom also smells a bit musty and like dogs or cats - this wouldn’t have been a big deal but we had our children sleeping in that room, and it was unpleasant to live with for a month. We were happy overall with Sanctuary and plan to book with them again.

Thanks for your review of your stay at Ship's Watch. We apologize for the neighbor, it is always a difficult balance at some of our homes with people who love vacation rentals and some who don't. We look forward to speaking with you about a future stay in the area.

One of the best places we’ve stayed in PG. Its our favorite spot to get away! Perfect with a master downstairs so all the teens were up! Kitchen was beautifully appointed and the property managers so responsive. Close to everything!

Stayed for a wedding/getaway. Perfect size for my little family as well as grandma and sister/brother in law. Great location, short walk to a strip of boutiques, coffee and playground. Short drive to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Would definitely stay at again.

This is the third time we have stayed at Ship's Watch. We love to be able to walk to dinner every evening. We are painters and have no trouble finding beautiful scenery to paint.
