Welcome to 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.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, 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 with everything you need for a day at the beach including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler.

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.

One bedroom with a full bed can be found on the first floor, adjacent to a bathroom with glass shower stall and custom tile throughout. Two more bedrooms and the master bedroom suite are found upstairs. One bedroom has a full bed, and another a queen, with custom cabinetry in each and windows that look down into the backyard garden.

The master bedroom 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 includes an old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub, custom tile, a heated towel bar, and a deep sink with marble vanity top.

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.

Sept 2022 Tuscany by the Sea

Overall Comment

The house was lovely, but had a number of issues. First and foremost was the fact that there was no garage, and the refrigerator was basically two drawers (Euro style). Second issue was the parking. It is impossible to put two cars in front of home, and neighbor was a real a#@hole. He insisted on parking as far up as possible to the property line between the two houses (he had plenty of room behind his car) which required me to parallel park. Not an easy task since the home is on Junipero. We had issues with the internet (was not properly hooked up when the new TV was installed). The backyard was lovely, but was not put together or cleaned. I had to arrange furniture, pull out the cushions and fix the fountain which was not working and full of green slim. Only issue on the fountain was the recirculating hose had come loose. Once all of this was done we really enjoyed the fountain and back yard. Another issue was smoke alarms. I replaced 4 batteries and ultimately we had to replace 2 smoke alarms. They always seemed to start chirping in the middle of the night (it would be good to have a small step ladder at the home as the smoke alarms on the 2nd floor landing are hard to reach). Finally, we had to buy a carpet mat for the dining room rug as it was very slippery when you would come down the step from the kitchen (my wife fell twice). I mentioned this to the House Manager and she advised that one would be installed but that did not happen while we were at the property. All in all the home was lovely, but did not appear to be ready for us to occupy

Good Morning and thank you for your in depth review and concerns about the property. We are pleased you enjoyed the home overall and wanted to let you know that most of the items you mentioned above have now been addressed and we are working with the Homeowner to hopefully declutter the backyard a bit more to make it a bit more functional.

This unit was rented for 30 days for 4 employees to share. It is well appointed and there were no complaints. On a cost per person basis, it was a good value. Will consider renting again. Occupant review below:

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!

Tuscany by the Sea....

Overall Comment

My visit to Tuscany by the sea, started off pretty disappointing as far as many supplies the house lacked, a kitchen trash can, the 2 outdoor propane tanks completely empty, the carpet in living room was dirty with stains and something brown and rancid in the carpet, I even tried vacuuming it out? the couches had dried Cheetos or something that looked like it all around, BUT after cleaning and getting Tim's help fro SVR i was very happy with an excellent location to walk over to the Mission Preserve, such a beautiful place to hike and walk daily along with 11th street straight up to the beach or take a right on San Carlos to great Restaurants. Tha backyard has a most peaceful setting to practice yoga under the pergola or just sit and relax. the sheeting was comfortable the shower/bath upstairs is very diffcult and perhaps safety is not for showering, but bathing is nice. All in all we enjoyed the space. Oh they do need a new pair of scissors in the kitchen, the one was rusty and did not work so well, a little TLC to kitchen appliances could be in order too. "Grant it" is is an older house and location FAB!
