Description

Welcome to “Plato’s Purple Playhouse”! Sleeps 2

**For up to the minute availability and the best possible rates, call the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals office directly to book this home! Our knowledgeable and friendly Reservations Agents are standing by to assist you personally.**

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

A colorful romantic retreat with personality plus is what couples will find at this one-of-a-kind home in Pacific Grove not far from Lovers Point, a perfect hideaway that’s also within walking distance of the beach, golfing, the Monterey Peninsula Recreation Trail, and dining and shopping downtown.

Painted purple and surrounded by tall trees in a quiet neighborhood, the 1-bedroom, 2-bath residence is perfect for enjoying the best of what “America’s Last Hometown” has to offer. Small, well-behaved dogs are welcome at Plato’s Purple Playhouse, named for the owner’s Maltese. The home is a few minutes’ walk from George Washington Park, which is dog-friendly and offers nature trails and other outdoor opportunities.

The 965-square-foot home offers a cozy setting, hardwood floors throughout, and whimsical décor with a midcentury modern flair. The back yard, surrounded by a tall wooden fence covered with blooming vines, is an ideal spot for barbecues on the built-in gas grill in the afternoons, or enjoying a glass of wine around the firepit in the evenings.

The home is also conveniently located just five minutes by car from downtown Carmel, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or Cannery Row, and about 45 minutes from Big Sur.

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

The home is easy to spot, with its unique exterior, matching picket fence and dog-themed mailbox. The entryway opens into the living room, where a gas fireplace with limestone surround is flanked by comfortable chairs and a burlwood coffee table, and guests can watch a 55-inch HDTV with sound bar. Original artwork can be found throughout the home, set off by the lavender-hued walls.

An adjacent kitchen offers granite countertops, a four-burner gas stove, a double sink with pullout faucet, and custom wood cabinetry that includes a built-in wine rack and plenty of storage space. Counter seating for two is available as well as a small dining area with three additional seats.

Down the hall, the master bedroom features eclectic style and a king-sized bed with a luxury bedspread in white, purple and pink. Views of the back yard can be seen through a sliding glass door, where hydrangeas and jasmine are planted under purple patio lights. An adjacent hallway bath includes a tiled tub/shower combination with a sunflower showerhead, a custom-made stone vessel sink, and tile floors.

At the other end of the hall is a home office that also looks out on the patio through a sliding glass door, with an en suite full bath available, which includes dual sinks and mirrors, and a custom tiled vanity. The tiled shower, large enough for two, includes a sunflower showerhead, a handy niche for soap and shampoo, and a built-in seat.

The back yard features comfortable patio seating as well as the built-in gas grill and gas firepit, with a high wooden fence making this a very private setting.

The kitchen opens into the garage where a washer and dryer are available. Additional space to store bicycles and golf clubs can be found in an outdoor side yard.

***Additional fee for pets***
