Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is proud to present “Sticks and Stones”! Sleeps 10

A beautiful custom home with dramatic interiors and a colorful sense of style, plus a private casita in the backyard, is within walking distance of both the beach and fine dining, shopping and theater venues in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Guests will appreciate the quiet neighborhood that surrounds this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home, where outdoor living space is plentiful, a great setting for families and friends to gather together underneath the Monterey pines and native live oaks. A casita in the back yard offers a private space that is separate from the main house, with its own bed, bathroom and mini-fridge.

The house is just a few blocks from shopping and fine dining in Carmel, and also close to popular venues such as Sunset Center, Pacific Repertory Theatre and the outdoor Forest Theater. It’s also just 10 minutes by car 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.

Living Spaces
Bold colors, intriguing décor that includes antique furniture and original artwork, and hardwood-look floors throughout the home make it unique, and the large chef-quality kitchen and dining room provides ample space for entertaining, with a long rustic wooden table with bench seating.

True to its name, Sticks and Stones is made of natural stone with a French country cottage look. Flagstone patios in front and back of the home have patio seating under the trees, and a stairway leads to the front door, which opens into the living room. Cozy upholstered sofas surround a wood-burning fireplace with gas start, a perfect place for watching the 52-inch HDTV, playing games or reading a good book.

A comfortable sitting room is adjacent to the living room with a queen sleeper sofa. Off of this area is a powder room with laundry area.

Kitchen and Dining
One hallway leads to the kitchen, where black marble solid-surface countertops are paired with black and silver cabinetry, and stainless steel Jenn-Air appliances include double ovens, a four-burner cooktop, and a refrigerator with bottom freezer drawer. A large island with stone top offers ample space for meal prep and also provides additional seating for four. An adjacent dining area with a rustic wood table and chandelier offers seating for eight.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Bedroom #1 is a suite with a king-size bed with custom headboard, a 42-inch HDTV, a chaise lounge and a wood-burning fireplace with a gas start. The suite also includes an en suite bath with a shower and separate jetted soaking tub and dual vanities, and a walk-in closet. French doors from the bedroom lead to the backyard patio.

Bedrooms #2 and #3 each have a queen bed with quality linens and share a hallway bathroom with shower and tub.

Bedroom #4 is in the detached casita in the back yard which has a queen bed and a full bath, as well as a kitchenette with mini-fridge, sink and microwave.

A powder room is located near the living areas.

Parking for two vehicles is available in the driveway.

Well-behaved dogs under 15 lbs that do not shed are welcome with pre-approval, an additional pet fee and a signed pet addendum.
Dogs must be potty trained.

Holiday Vacation at Sticks and Stones, Carmel, California

by Sedona AZ

5 of 5

Overall Comment

We enjoyed 3800 Sticks and Stones for thirty days over the holiday season. It is as described, a good-sized home with European Flair. The location was superb; we were able to take a brief walk to the beach anytime of day, particularly at sunset, and we were a brief walk from all the wonderful restaurants, shops and amenities in Carmel. Plus, the home is ideally located to enjoy the Monterey Peninsula, including Pacific Gove and Monterey itself. The house itself served our family well(nine of us all together) for a several-day holiday gathering. The casita adjacent to the courtyard is an especially nice bonus for family or friends to enjoy. The courtyard is beautiful and filled with flowers. And, the-off street parking is great - such a nice thing in busy Carmel! The staff at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, including Jeanette and Kisha, could not have been better to deal with. They were prompt and attentive to any concerns or questions we had. In addition, they were just very nice people to work with, and we’d like to give a shout out to their handy man and their cleaning help, Laura and Antonio. Plus Barbara who covered the phones at certain times was very nice to deal with, and helpful. Overall, we had a very nice stay at Sticks and Stones.

Overall Comment

This is our second visit to sticks and stones, and we have already booked a return trip next year – so we are obviously satisfied with the house. However, we did encounter a major problem, and it was not corrected to our satisfaction.
The washing machine door (It is a front loader) was broken upon arrival. We notified Sanctuary rentals of this problem on October 2. They sent a person out to check, and they agreed that the door needed to be replaced or the unit needs to be replaced. We went back-and-forth with Sanctuary all month. They finally indicated that they could install a new unit on October 31 - the day before our departure. We asked that they let one day - so we still don’t know if they actually fixed the problem.
We have asked to be compensated for our inconvenience. To date, we have not received any reply.

Thank you for your review. I understand in speaking with Management that an agreement was reached on compensation and we look forward to welcoming you back again next year. We look forward to your next visit.

Absolutely Beautiful

Sticks and Stone was beautiful. The home was very clean and ready for us at check in. The location could not have been more perfect. Approx 2 blocks to the ocean and 2 blocks to town. The Casita in the rear yar had power issues so our guess were not able to there so 2 people had to sleep on the couch. Made it a little uncomfortable at times. Sanctuary was responsive when we contacted them regarding this issue but wasn’t able to fix it during our stay. Until the power is repaired in the Casita they should advertise the home for 8 people not 10.

Such a beautiful home

We have stayed in many vacation rentals, in Carmel and elsewhere, and this ranks at the top. With pleasant, comfortable, clean, roomy, well-equipped accommodations, in the perfect location, this was exactly what we needed for our annual January getaway to this beautiful town. Sun, surf, and sand, great restaurants, miles of beach and trails to walk. My only disappointment is that Sticks and Stones is not available for next January.

Kitchen layout is funky. 20 steps (40 roundtrip) from dishwasher to dishware storage. The cabinets for storage are difficult to open and close. Recommend open shelves above dishwasher for dishware storage. There are no dinner plates, pasta bowls are not dinner plates.

Thank you for your review of Sticks and Stones. We are pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay, however we wish you had let us know about your not being able to find the dinner plates. In the cabinet by the dining room table there is a full selection of dinnerware for the guests use. We could have let you know that very easily if we had been aware that you were having difficulties locating them. We look forward to your next visit to the area.

Overall Comment

We have been traveling to Carmel for over 30 years and have stayed in literally dozens of properties over the years. Stick and Stones was the pinnacle of all those experiences. Sanctuary was, by far, the most professional, accommodating, caring "landlord" I have dealt with in all those years. The house was exquisite - just as described, perfect location, amenities to spare. Everything was perfect upon arrival and Sanctuary was very helpful throughout our stay.

We made it every evening the 3 blocks to the beach for sunset (and most mornings for a sunrise walk). The village was wonderful for walking, coffee, meals and shopping. The only time we left the area was to go to Big Sur, 17 Mile Drive and the Aquarium (we had guests new to the area).

If you've been here before, this is the perfect place to stay. If you've never experienced Carmel-By-The-Sea, get there soon!

Thank you Sanctuary Vacation Rentals - the name describes it ALL! You are my official "go-to" from now on!
