Description

Welcome to “The Artist’s Way”! Sleeps up to 3 guests

A romantic rooftop apartment with a private balcony overlooking downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea is just steps away from Ocean Avenue and all of the galleries, restaurants and shops that make the town such a distinctive vacation destination.

Old World charm is the hallmark of this newly remodeled 1-bedroom, 1 bath flat with a comfy pull out couch, with many unique and vintage accents that artistic souls will love. A renowned artist-owned gallery, Carmel Art Association, is directly across the street and features works by local painters and sculptors. From this location, it’s easy to park your car and go on foot to many different attractions.

The 525-square-foot residence is on the upper floor of a courtyard that includes numerous businesses, including the popular Toro Sushi Bar, and is also just steps away from the Hog’s Breath Inn, formerly owned by Clint Eastwood, as well as a variety of other well-known restaurants within a few blocks. In addition, the apartment is just a few minutes by car from the beach, and just 10 minutes to the world-class golf courses and restaurants of Pebble Beach®, to monarch butterfly sightings in Pacific Grove, or to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. Other attractions within a half hour’s drive are the natural wonders of Big Sur and wine tasting and dining in Carmel Valley Village.

Hardwood floors, whitewashed vaulted ceilings, and handcrafted plaster walls are among the attractive features, as well as vintage built-in cabinets that provide plenty of storage space. A color scheme in soothing tones of white, gray and blue reflect the nearby ocean environment, and eclectic décor captures the creative spirit of Carmel.

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.

Guests enter through a shabby chic door that leads into the living room, where large windows let in generous amounts of natural light, but with curtains if privacy is desired.

A private balcony off the living room features bistro seating and wrought iron railings, a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.

The living room includes a 50-inch HDTV and comfortable seating that includes a full-size sleeper sofa. A kitchen with deep sink, built-in storage and a gas stove are available next to a dining area that seats two.

The bedroom features a queen bed and a large en suite bath, with a pedestal sink, a tub/shower combination, large sunflower shower head and a built-in cabinet and drawers with ample room for storing personal items.

Laundry service is available but there are no laundry facilities in the building. Cars may be parked on the street - no parking spaces are provided. The City of Carmel has several downtown parking lots with unlimited timing, including one near the flat on Torres and 3rd.

We stayed at the Artist’s Way in Carmel-by-the-Sea for two nights and it was a wonderful experience.
The apartment is awesome and very clean. It’s located in the middle of the town and action in a hidden court that is on the list of Carmel Courts and Passages you want to explore.
We would love to rent this or one of the other Sanctuary apartments again for our vacation.
Thank you!

Pros: This was a fantastic location for our trip to Carmel. We could easily access everything in town and the beaches. We had a car but didn't use it every day. Parking was manageable. The place was clean and well stocked. We had all of the dishes and utensils we needed. There was coffee, tea and even a bottle of wine for us when we arrived. We felt welcome there. Directions were clear and unambiguous. We knew what we needed to do.
Cons: The apartment is small. One bedroom and a small bathroom. There is a vey popular sushi restaurant in the brick courtyard pictured in the promotional photo. You need to wind your way through the restaurant to get to the entrance to the apartment. One evening, we were coming back from dinner and I tripped on a Bernese mountain dog that was laying across the dimly lit path through the restaurant! There is also another restaurant located directly behind the unit. After the restaurants close, the staff dumps bottles and other trash in the receptacles located under the bedroom window. This is very loud as the apartment is old and not insulated or not well insulated. There is a salon under the apartment. Because there is little insulation (if any), when the stylist gets a phone call, you can hear her side of the conversation.

This wonderful place was recommended by our daughter who stayed here with her family in March. The central location was perfect and we totally enjoyed dining at the sushi restaurant at the bottom of the staircase. Every time we came “home”, the Maitre D’ and Molly greeted enthusiastically like family.

Smooth reservation and check in process with the nicest people, Keyless entry worked perfectly. The perfect central Carmel location for a short stay. Unit was cute and quaint. Might not be everyone’s style but fine for a few days. Because it’s Carmel the nearby businesses all close early which is good because you are in the middle of the action. We like that for this kind of get away. You will hear garbage pickup and street sweepers so going to bed early is a good idea. We definitely will stay here again.

We loved our stay here. It's located within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops while being hidden in a beautiful courtyard. The balcony is a lovely place to sit, and the apartment was well-furnished with everything from beach towels, beach umbrella, and beach bag to multiple coffee makers, toaster, etc. The bed was super comfortable. It was well-cleaned and all the furnishings were new. The only downside is the apartment does get hot in the afternoons and is cold in the mornings. It's an older building so the windows and doors don't always open/close that well and it's not well-insulated. All in all though, we had a lovely stay and the property management team was helpful.

This flat was incredible! Well appointed and perfectly spacious for my Mom and I celebrating her birthday. We had an easy time finding parking and didn’t mind repealing every few hours to avoid ticketing. You couldn’t ask for a better location, it felt so special walking up to the darling apartment each day and taking a quick break between shopping and the beach. We can’t wait to return! Thank you for hosting us.

"This is a really great property — one of the nicest we’ve rented through VRBO and in a super convenient location. Extremely clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. We would definitely stay here again."

"This property is truly special! Location is steps away from downtown restaurants and shops, yet quiet as it is tucked away at the back of a small courtyard of shops. Small patio was wonderful to sit and enjoy a glass of wine before or after dinner. (Keep watch for a curious pack of racoons though!) We were concerned about parking, as the property does not come with a dedicated space, but unrestricted parking was available on a residential street a few blocks away. (Not sure if this would be as easy once pre-COVID crowds return, but it worked for this stay.) Apartments was extremely clean and bright. It had everything we needed for our stay. Check in was effortless and the property manangement company was very attentive. We would definitely stay here again!"

"The unit is right in downtown. I was there during covid so although the parking in the neighborhood is 2 hour permit parking, I didn't have a problem. I moved the car once or twice, but never saw a meter maid. Loved the location and the bed was super comfortable. The water pressure was a little weak and when the other unit was occupied it was worse, but it wasn't that big of a deal to me. I would totally stay here again and hope to soon!"
