Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present "Tuscany by the Sea"! Sleeps up to 8 guests.

A winning combination of elegance and casual living can be found nestled in the treetops of Carmel-by-the-Sea, the perfect hideaway that’s also close to the best of everything that the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.

The 4-bedroom, 2-bath custom-built home has unique Old World designer touches such as hand-hewn walnut floors, intricate hand-laid tile and Italian marble, vaulted ceilings, Murano glass fixtures, custom cabinetry, stained glass, and artisan wrought iron railings, as well as a comfortable open floor plan on the first floor that makes it ideal for hosting family gatherings or reunions of friends.

The 1,600-square-foot residence is just a few blocks away from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and just around the corner from entertainment at the city’s renowned Sunset Center. It’s also only a 10-minute drive to golfing and dining in Pebble Beach®, or to the Monarch Butterfly habitat in Pacific Grove. Other nearby attractions such the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row are also about 10 minutes away and it’s about 15 minutes to wine tasting and antiques shopping in Carmel Valley.

Native plants, flax and succulents greet visitors along the stairway to the front door, which opens to a great room that includes the living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room has a 36-inch HDTV as well as cozy seating around a wood-burning, gas-kindled fireplace, making this a place for conversation, playing board games or reading.

The dining table seats six beneath a Tiffany-style stained glass chandelier as well as original ocean-themed artwork. The fully-equipped kitchen next to the dining room has a custom tile back-splash, marble counter-tops, updated appliances including a Jenn-Air gas stove with four burners, recessed lighting, and a deep farmhouse sink with a window that looks out to the backyard garden.

The backyard, accessible through French doors in the living room, is surrounded by a rustic wood fence for privacy and features several sitting areas surrounded by rhododendron, citrus trees and calla lilies, as well as native live oaks. A gourmet gas grill is available for afternoon barbecues, and patio seating makes this a perfect spot to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Three bedrooms are located upstairs.

Bedroom #1 features a queen bed with fabric headboard, with reading lights on either side, and a private balcony with bistro seating that looks out over the backyard garden. The en suite bath (the only bathroom on this level) includes a shower-over-old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub, custom tile, a heated towel bar, and a deep sink with marble vanity top.

Bedroom #2 has a queen bed.
Bedroom #3 has a full double bed.
Both bedrooms have windows that overlook the back yard garden area.

On the lower level, Bedroom #4 has a full bed and is located adjacent to the lower level bathroom with glass shower stall and custom tile throughout.

A stacked washer and dryer are available next to the first floor bath. Street parking for up to two small cars is often available at the front of the home on a first come, first served basis. Parking can otherwise be scarce on this block.

Well-behaved dogs under 35 lbs are welcome with pre-approval, an additional pet fee and a signed pet addendum.

Fun stay in Carmel

by Half Moon Bay CA

5 of 5

Overall Comment

We loved our stay at Tuscany by the Sea. The house is in a great location and is quirky, but charming and well built. It’s on a somewhat busy road, but you can easily walk downtown and to the ocean. We enjoyed a show at the Sunset Center only a couple of blocks away. The kitchen only has refrigerator and freezer drawers, which was a bit challenging for our stay over the holidays, but would normally be adequate. The showers are small. There is street parking for one car out front, but there is also a public parking lot (with EV chargers) and also some street parking a block or 2 away if you have more than 1 vehicle. We mostly walked everywhere so did not find the parking to be burdensome. The neighbors were lovely and brought us the local papers each week. You do have to be prepared for a lot of stairs which is challenging when unloading and loading and also some uphill walks when heading downtown or to the beach. We did love walking around the neighborhood and looking at all of the beautiful homes and cottages.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this unique, lovely house in a charming, magical city. We would definitely stay there again.

December in Tuscany

Overall Comment

Overall a very comfortable place, and very well situated close to town and the woods (for dog walking) and the beach. Size of rooms was good, but could have done with a couple of small desks in the bedrooms to offer an alternate workspace from the dining room table. Appliances were good, and Sanctuary Vacations were very responsive in the event we didn't have everything we needed. Many thanks to their team for making it a great month for us!
