Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present “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.

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.

Bedroom and Bathroom
The bedroom features a queen bed and an 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.

An additional sleeping option is located in the living room where there is a full/double size sleeper sofa. Please note that guests sleeping in the living room will need to pass through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

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.

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

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. Each home has beach towels, shower and bath amenities and spa-style robes. Our team is available 7 days a week to assist you. We look forward to hosting you!

What an amazing location. It was central to everything you could imagine. Initially I thought street parking was going to be an issue but it wasn’t bad at all. I would stay here again.

We Highly Recommend

by Canonsburg, PA

5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Carmel. The apartment was quaint and thoughtfully put together. It’s situated above a salon down the alley between a gallery and Toro sushi (which was delicious). The town is walkable and we were able to enjoy the beach and the galleries and shops all without use of the car. It was the perfect spot to stop on our way to Big Sur and back to San Francisco. We highly recommend this apartment over the boutique hotels if you enjoy the option of cooking in.

We Would Definitely Stay Here Again

by Los Angeles, CA

5 of 5

The apartment was very cozy and clean, and we had a great time staying here. It had a fantastic location in the heart of downtown with so many restaurants and shops within short walking distance. The hosts were very communicative and helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again. The only caveat: parking was a little tough (mostly 2 hr max spots within a few blocks of the apartment), but we were able to find a spot north in the neighborhood without a time limit. Low power EV chargers were also available a few blocks away.

Would Stay There Again!

Amazing stay in the heart of Carmel by the sea! Rental company is very responsive and apartment was so spacious for just the 2 of us and our 4 large bags/boxes. Plenty of closet/storage space to tuck things away. Convenient walking distance to all of the restaurants and bars we were planning to visit! We were worried about only street parking but it was easy and we always found a spot within a block to leave our 2 cars. Would stay here again!

Incredible Place

by Boston, MA

I stayed as a solo traveler, for four nights in this incredible place, and could not have been happier with the bed, the accommodations, the kitchen supplies, and the amazing location. Even though the balcony looks over a restaurant, everything ends fairly early in the evening, and the neighborhood gets very quiet. I slept great every night there. Really loved my stay and can’t wait to come back! Thank you Sanctuary for offering such a special place to stay in Carmel.

Homey, quaint, clean apartment that we called home. Superb location amongst the heart of Carmel, just above an alleyway full of galleries and a restaurant. Rain plagued our trip and spent most of our time in the apartment and didn't mind at all. Property management called to welcome us and make sure everything was in order.

I stayed here three nights with my two adult daughters. The main bed is a double and there is a hide-a-bed in the living room. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with coffee K cups and coffee filled filter inserts. They left us wine and cheese with crackers. Such a gracious touch. The only negative was the hide-a-bed was not ready with sheets but we corrected that. Lovely stay in Carmel!!

We loved our stay! The property is clean, nicely appointed and centrally located. We could easily walk to restaurants, shops etc. The staff at Sanctuary Rentals helped us quickly with our questions. Even though the sushi restaurant in the patio below was bustling at night, their guests were never loud and the restaurant closed at a decent hour. We highly recommend staying at this charming property.

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.

In the Middle of Carmel

by Lafayette CA

Overall Comment

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.

Great Location but Noisy

by New Castle NH

5 of 5

Overall Comment

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.

Perfectly located balcony apartment

by Saratoga CA

5 of 5

Overall Comment

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.
