Description

Welcome to “The Madden Suite”! Sleeps up to 5. Short Term Rental.

**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

This sophisticated apartment in the heart of 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. Park your car and walk to everything in this unbeatable location. Newly available as of June 13, 2020 - be among the first to enjoy the new beds, furnishings and appointments in this quintessential Carmel charmer.

The 800-square-foot newly remodeled residence is on the upper floor of a courtyard that includes numerous businesses, including French-American bistro Etats-Unis, 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. Once upon a time ago, the flat operated as the club house for famed football coach and Monday Night Football announcer John Madden, for whom the nightly rental is now named.

The apartment is just a few minutes by car from the beach, and only 10 minutes to a variety of attractions, including world-class golf and dining in Pebble Beach, monarch butterfly sightings in Pacific Grove, or the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. Others within a half hour’s drive are the natural wonders of Big Sur and wine tasting in Carmel Valley Village.

Vaulted ceilings with skylights and handcrafted plaster walls are among the features that make this 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment stand out, as well as a vintage Carmel stone fireplace that provides a cozy gathering point.

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 door that leads into the living room, where large windows let in generous amounts of natural light, but with curtains if privacy is desired. The living room includes a large HDTV and comfortable seating around the fireplace.

A convenient kitchenette with refrigerator, small bar sink, oven and stove (no dishwasher) makes it easy to enjoy local take-out food or to prepare small meals and snacks, is adjacent to a dining area that seats four to six.

The master bedroom features a king-size bed with luxury bedding. The second bedroom has a king bed with foam topper or can be made into two twin beds. The bathroom features a tiled tub-shower combination with a large sunflower shower head and a second removable handheld shower head. The updated bathroom includes a large vanity with dual sinks, a generously sized cabinet with ample room for stowing personal items, and an additional cabinet for storage.

The unit does not have a washer or dryer. We are happy to recommend laundry facilities in the area. Cars may be parked on the street.

Overall we had a good stay here. The property feels spacious and the location is unbeatable. The housekeeping staff does not wash the dishes between guests and instead relies on the previous guest to have washed their dishes thoroughly. In our case the previous guest had not washed the dishes well and there was dried food on most of the dishes. There is no dishwasher, as advertised, but the kitchen sink is TINY, it's the size of a wet bar sink. Don't plan on doing any major cooking here because the pans won't fit in the sink. The previous guest had also opened all the coffee packets, the kind that goes in a drip basket, and then realized there was no drip coffee maker, and put the packets back. I don't get the feeling that the cleaning staff looks very carefully at the kitchen area.
The rooms are all a good size and the beds are very comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is very low and the bathroom door doesn't close all the way (1" gap) but it has double sinks and is well equipped. There are small electric wall heaters in the living room and bedrooms. You really have to crank them up to get the whole house warm due to the high ceilings. The walls to the bedrooms don't go all the way up to the ceiling so the heaters are really just trying to heat one large space and they're not quite powerful enough if it's really cold.

Overall, it's a great place to stay, just don't plan on cooking anything and order takeout from one of the many restaurants nearby.
Manager response on 2020-12-08 - Response from Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, Inc.
Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. The kitchen is indeed small in this apartment and the limitations are noted in our description - "A convenient kitchenette with refrigerator, small bar sink, oven and stove (no dishwasher) makes it easy to enjoy local take-out food or to prepare small meals and snacks". We do apologize for the error in having drip coffee packets placed in the home that does not require them and for the condition of the dishes upon your arrival. Our cleaning team has been made aware of your comments so that pay very close attention to these important details. Our team will look into available options that may assist with heating the apartment and repairing the bathroom door. Thank you again for your review, it is very much appreciated.

"When two best friends are fed-up of it all, they take a short trip by the ocean and let it all out. This little cottage is exactly what was needed. It was clean, cozy, and perfect for us. Right in the middle of downtown, walking distance from EVERYTHING and also convenient if you love sushi. Toro is right at the bottom of the stairs. Only thing we were bummed out about was the fact that there was no log in the fireplace. We couldn't enjoy the fire on a cold night. The restaurant owner was nice enough to give us a duraflame log but unfortunately that did not work either as it did not have the sleeve. I recommend that you pick up some logs coz then this place is complete."
