Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present "Pacific Grove Retreat"! Sleeps 5

Vintage charm and local history combine in this mid-century home, with ocean views from most windows and the elevated deck, and just 2 blocks away from the beach and a short walk from downtown Pacific Grove. Pacific Grove Retreat is perfect for just one month or for an extended stay and long term renters are welcome. A handsome desk in the third bedroom makes a perfect workspace.

The 3-bedroom, 1-bath home is close to everything and yet has a sense of privacy, surrounded by fencing and landscaping that hides the home from view. Built in 1948, the residence was originally the parsonage for the Lutheran Church of Monterey, and has had only one other owner since.

This home is all one level once inside and please note that there is a furnished, long term rental below your unit with a separate entrance from the other side of the house so your privacy will be assured.

The 1,200-square-foot house is just a 5-minute walk to shops and restaurants in downtown Pacific Grove, or to the beach and the Monterey Bay Recreational Trail. It’s also a 10-minute walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is just a few minutes away by car, as is the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary and Asilomar State Park.

Downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea is also just a few minutes away by car, offering fine dining, shopping and day spas, and it’s also a 10-minute drive to golfing in Pebble Beach®, or 20 minutes to wine tasting in Carmel Valley.

Two entryways offer convenience for guests, with a front door that enters into the living room, and a stairway to the deck and kitchen from the ground-level garage and driveway. The spacious deck offers a gourmet gas grill, an outdoor table and chairs, and a patio heater that allows you to enjoy the ocean view even on cool days.

Adjacent to the deck is the kitchen, which has original cabinetry enhanced by updated tile countertops and backsplash, newer appliances and a four-burner gas stove, as well as a corner sink with large pull-out faucet. Next to the kitchen is a dining room with seating for six around a mission-style wood table.

The living room features a mix of mid-century and other period furniture around a layered stone wood-burning fireplace, the perfect place for enjoying board games or conversation, or watching the 40-inch HDTV. Large windows let in abundant light and hardwood floors are found throughout. Enhancing the décor are original paintings of the coast and nearby sights.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Bedroom #1 features a king-sized bed with a quilted coverlet in tones of blue and beige as well as nightstands and seating. (New king mattress 2023)
Bedroom #2 has a queen bed.
Bedroom #3, located in the former parsonage office, features a single bed, library with a large desk, and an upright Steinway piano.
The hallway bathroom has a tub/shower combo with tile floor, vanity with Corian top, and ample storage space.

A laundry room with washer and dryer is available on the bottom level next to the one-car garage, which has room for one small vehicle plus storage space for beach gear and other items. Parking for one other vehicle is available on the street.

There is a long-term furnished one bedroom apartment on the lower level next to the garage.

Well-behaved small 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.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The locator and view were ideal. Quiet neighborhood and close to everything. The decor could be updated, but we lived here for 9 weeks and loved every minute.

The property description was quite accurate. The home has all the amenities needed for daily living. The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining, or just casual dining. The library/music room provides an option apart from the living/dining room area, as well as a big desk and day bed. Books, games, piano, guitar, puzzles are all available for recreation within the house.
The laundry facilities downstairs were excellent. The home's location is perfect for walking to nearby Monterrey or old town Pacific Grove, as well as the ocean cliffs. The privacy of both the front yard and the back deck was excellent, with safe off-street parking. The entire facility was well maintained. When the television service was interrupted, the Sanctuary maintenance person arrived promptly to reset the equipment. The only issue was the king-size bed mattress, a lightweight foam "topper", which was far too soft and lumpy -- hopefully, management will remedy this problem. Pillows and linens were abundant, including beach towels. The garage had beach chairs and a cooler for visiting the beach.

You can walk everywhere, downtown Pacific Grove, and the wharf.
The deck is large and the views of the bay are great.

I spent most of two months-- May and June 2022--at 226A Lighthouse, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Walks by the shore, lots of time on the deck (it was still sunny then!!) and a generally delightful stay. One day we lost our power for most of the day, but it wasn't the property's fault-- some wayward driver hit a tree and the entire neighborhood lost power for about 15 hours. Anyway I really enjoyed the house.

Overall Comment

The property was absolutely perfect for our specific needs in every way possible. We spent our month in walking distance of a dramatically beautiful part of the California Coast, enjoying revisiting and entertaining old friends and family. The kitchen was incredibly well-equipped, the on-site laundry facilities a definite plus, and the spacious living room and deck areas perfect for entertaining. The third bedroom//office/library was a retreat within a retreat with its little jewel of a piano and interesting collection of books. Everything I needed for entertaining was to be easily found at Andronico's just a few short blocks away along with the Aquarium, Cannery Row, Lovers Point etc. close enough to negate the worries about finding parking and need for a car.
It was a lovely experience!

We loved the Pacific Grove Retreat. So cozy. Felt like home. The hike and bike trail was a daily outdoor activity. Highly suggest Folktale Winery!
