Description

Welcome to “Sticks and Stones”! Sleeps 10

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The other hallway leads to the bedrooms, which includes a master suite with a king-size bed with custom headboard, a 42-inch HDTV, a chaise lounge and a wood-burning fireplace with gas start. There is also 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.

Two other bedrooms each have a queen bed and share a hallway bathroom with shower and tub.

The casita in the back yard contains a queen bed and a full bath, as well as a kitchenette with mini-fridge, sink and microwave.

Parking for two vehicles is available in the driveway.

Well behaved small dogs that do not shed are welcome for an additional fee.

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!
Manager response on 2020-01-28 - Response from Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, Inc.
WOW! Thank you so much for your lovely review of Sticks and Stones and also our team here at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the area and we look forward to your next visit to the Monterey Peninsula.
