Description

Welcome to Bliss By the Sea! Sleeps 5 adults, 1 child

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

The best of past and present are combined in this historic Victorian home, within easy walking distance of the beach as well as dining and shopping in charming downtown Pacific Grove. Or you may just want to relax on the backyard deck, porch or balconies, and watch the world go by.

This 2-bedroom plus sleeping loft, 2.5-bath residence, exquisitely finished inside in updated Arts and Crafts fashion, blends vintage furnishings with sophisticated West Elm style. The pet-friendly home includes a fully fenced back yard.

In addition to being within a few minutes’ walk of downtown Pacific Grove, the house is within walking distance of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, and is also just 10 minutes from the world-class golf courses and restaurants of Pebble Beach, and a half hour by car from the natural beauty of Big Sur.

The light-filled house contains photos and artwork reflecting Pacific Grove’s historic past, including a hand-painted tile mural in the kitchen that shows the home in its original ocean-side location.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary 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 first floor includes a living room, dining room and kitchen, flowing together to create an ideal space for relaxing and entertaining. Hardwood floors are found throughout, with a beautiful Tiffany-style light fixture in the dining area over a mid-century table that seats six. The living room provides an area for conversation or reading, and includes a 36-inch HDTV.

An adjacent outside deck includes a gourmet gas grill, comfortable outdoor seating, and a fire pit table, a cozy place to gather for drinks or barbecuing.

The updated kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and a double oven, in addition to custom-made cabinetry and granite counter-tops. Down the hall is a convenient half-bath as well as a combination office and laundry room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features two sets of French doors, each of which leads to balconies with bistro seating and ocean views, perfect spots to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.

The bedroom also offers a king bed that can be converted to two twins and sitting area, with comfortable places for reading or watching the 42-inch HDTV. An adjacent bath has two seashell-scalloped sinks, spacious vanity, custom tile work and a glass shower enclosure.

Down the hall is a bedroom with queen bed and antique armoire as well as a sleeping alcove with a day bed and pull-out trundle, which can be converted to either a king bed or two twins. A 42-inch HDTV are available in the alcove as well.

Between the second bedroom and alcove is a bath with a tub-shower combination, custom tile work, and granite counter-top.

An attached single-car garage provides parking for one vehicle and ample storage for beach gear; additional parking is available on the street.

Small, well-behaved pets may be brought with owner’s approval.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

"Basically perfect! The house is very clean, well-maintained, and very well stocked. Great location, close to the aquarium and other attractions. The decor is also very attractive. It's clear that the management pays attention to details. Definitely the best rental we've ever stayed at."

"Appropriated named, Bliss by the Sea.!  You truly feel like a welcomed guest in a good friend's home. Well-maintained. Lots of thought went into the decor with a beach-side theme. We enjoyed preparing meals in the kitchen as there is room for several cooks and most cooking implements you would have at your personal home, including a seasoned cast iron skillet! For four women from Texas, a cast iron skillet is a must!! I do recommend reviewing the guest instructions book upon arrival. Many of your questions about appliances are answered there (like the dishwasher).  One suggestion might be to have a notebook with local restaurant menus for guests.  I truly hope to return one day."

"Perfect Stay!  Bliss by the Sea was better than described.  Everything was new and immaculate,close enough to walk to the shore and restaruants.  Sanctuary vacation rentals were top notch and easy to deal with and have thought of all the small details.  We would definately recommend this house to anyone traveling to the Pacific Grove/Monterey area."

We were greeted with a bottle of wine, cheese, crackers and cookies and passes to a local spa and wine tasting in Carmel (which we took advantage of!)

"Has everything you could need on your vacation!  Has every kitchen essential! Roku is an excellent touch. Within walking distance of everything: grocery shopping, beaches, attractions, restaurants, etc. The only downfall is the backyard is small and not particularly inviting and the parking is tight whether you want to park in the driveway on the street, there is always cars parked on either side of a very very narrow street."

"Perfect place to relax & entertain!  Bliss by the Sea provided a wonderful escape from the city to relax and entertain over the Thanksgiving holiday. The reservation process was simple and any questions were responded to promptly and thoroughly. Upon arrival we were impressed with the immaculate condition, cleanliness, and amenities provided. We had no issues cooking our Thanksgiving dinner and entertaining our local friends in the large floorpan. It is a pet friendly property allowing us to bring our 4-legged family member and was complimented by a private, fenced in yard. We will definitely be back, if you don't reserve it first! You won't be disappointed."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely well appointed home. We were pleased to be greeted with a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers. The home is cheerful and bright with every convenience. It is very clean and feels very much like home away from home. The kitchen is beautifully done with quality finishes and very well stocked with dishes, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. We appreciated the wonderful lighting in each room. One small suggestion...we would have liked more lids for the pots and pans. Parking may be a challenge for more than one vehicle. The location is excellent...close to stores, restaurants, Monterey and Pacific Grove center. We appreciated being able to have our beloved small dog with us at this home and would definitely stay once again. Thank you to the owners for great attention to detail in the home and the rental company for providing us with a wonderful short holiday stay!"

Room for 2 cars, one in the garage, one in the driveway. All appliances new and spic & span. Great shower in the Master Bath. One suggestion would be a chair in the Master Bedroom.
