Description

Welcome to “Mermaid Loft”! Sleeps 2

A romantic hideaway made just for two awaits you in the Lovers Point area of Pacific Grove, just steps from the beach and the Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, and within easy walking distance of downtown dining and shopping. Watch twinkling lights on the bay in the evening from this upper story loft, or during the day, view waves, whales and fishing boats on the water.

This 1-bedroom, 1-bath home is a perfect place to enjoy the best of the Monterey Peninsula, since it’s conveniently located near some of the region’s prime attractions, including the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Monarch Sanctuary, and Asilomar. Stunning views from the edge of the bay are available from the nearby rec trail, which links Pacific Grove with Monterey, Seaside and Marina, for those who want to bike or walk around the area.

Downtown Monterey and Cannery Row are just a few minutes away by car, and it’s just a 10-minute drive to a variety of other attractions, such as quaint Carmel-by-the-Sea or world-class golf and sightseeing in Pebble Beach®. Wine tasting and shopping are just 20 minutes away in Carmel Valley, and the natural wonders of Big Sur are about 40 minutes away.

The 450-square-foot apartment with comfortable, eclectic beach decor offers views from the living room through large picture windows that face the bay. You also have access to a small fenced patio at the back that allows a warm, private spot in the sunshine where you can enjoy lunch al fresco or a glass of wine in the evenings, with room to stow beach gear or bicycles as needed.

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 and beach towels.

Guests enter through a gate that takes them down a brick pathway to the back door. The entryway up a flight of stairs opens into a cozy living space that blends living room, kitchen and dining area. Easy-care hardwood-look flooring, a comfortable couch and club chair, a 30-inch HDTV and a wooden table for two can be found here, as well as original beach and nautical artwork that perfectly captures the bay-side mood.

Décor in soothing tones of sand, driftwood, aqua and blue further enhance the relaxed ambiance, and large picture windows look out toward the bay, providing views day or night. The small kitchen contains everything you need for meal prep, with an electric stove, deep stainless sink with pull-out faucet and microwave. Please note there is no dishwasher.

The bedroom features a queen bed with metal headboard and luxury bedding in tones of aqua, sand and gray. The en suite bath features stone tile, a vanity with granite countertop, a shell-framed mirror, and a large shower with glass door.

In back of the apartment, the small patio features a metal bistro table with seating for four, inside a fenced private courtyard.

A washer and dryer are available in the downstairs entryway. There is one dedicated parking space directly in front of the apartment, and more parking is available on adjacent Ocean View Boulevard.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the Mermaid Loft!
Pros:
- Location: 1 block from the water and a few mins walk to Lovers Point. We walked the 1.5 miles along the path to Cannery Row and it was gorgeous the whole way! A 3 min drive to the heart of Pacific Grove and Carmel is only 15 mins.
- Sanctuary was easy to work with and checked in via text and phone, which was really nice. They were quite responsive with questions.
- Having the small kitchen was nice to store food in the fridge and they provide coffee/tea for the mornings. We didn't cook in the kitchen but it looked pretty well stocked.
-Parking out front is convenient and easy (if you only have 1 room for more than that.)
Cons (not much!):
- The mattress REALLY needs to be replaced. It's not supportive at all and folds in on itself. We called it the Taco Bed. As much as we loved the location and rest of the loft, I wouldn't stay here again without a new mattress.
- The lighting in the bedroom could be changed out. The sconce on the wall is much too bright/blue-colored for the evenings but the lamps are more like nightlights and you can't read by them.
- Be careful with both the blinds and the closet doors in the bedroom. Both are easy to get off track. Should be an easy fix and I mentioned it on the checkout forms so hopefully those are fixed up.
- While the washer/dryer is nice to have, there isn't any detergent, FYI.

We had a wonderful getaway at Mermaid Loft. It is in a great location, fabulous view of the bay and close to everything. The bay trail is just a block away and is walking distance to downtown Pacific Grove and Cannery Row. Short drive to beautiful Point Lobos State Park and 17 Mile Drive.

I booked this property for some alone time and it did not disappoint. It was comfortable, had all of the amenities I needed and it was right across the street from the beautiful beach trail. Having a designated parking was also nice to be able to walk down to the restaurants at Lover's Point and all around. I will definitely be staying again!

Overall great place... wonderful location! Adequate size for one person or a couple. Enjoyed walking out to the ocean with coffee in the morning. Having a bottle of wine, crackers and cheese on the table to greet us was certainly a nice touch! A few things to consider: The mattress is old, lumpy and very uncomfortable. which didn't make for a great night's sleep. Restocking things like toilet paper, paper towels, etc. was overlooked. There wasn't a scrub brush or sponge to wash dishes with, which made that a challenge... As I said, a great place overall; just a few details that need to be improved upon. We really enjoyed the stay and it's a charming place!
Manager response on 2020-10-29 - Response from Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, Inc.
Thanks for your review of Mermaid Loft. We have passed along your comments to the House Manager to ensure some of the smaller details are looked after as well and we will be discussing the mattress with the homeowner. We look forward to your next visit to the Monterey Peninsula.

This is my second time staying in this rental. I love it though I was not thrilled about the mattress on my first visit and humbly offered my suggestion to change it out. You sink down into it considerably and it is not comfortable. Knowing I was returning for another trip, I called Sanctuary Vacation Rentals and asked if they could reach out to the owner. The owner was NOT willing to change out the mattress.

I truly want to come back to this rental (I visit Pacific Grove twice a year). However, I'm not sure I can sleep on such an uncomfortable mattress again. I believe I am the second person to post about the uncomfortable mattress. Once again, I humbly ask the owner to reconsider getting a new mattress.

With the exception of the mattress - everything is great. Perfect location with an excellent view. House is always clean. Perfect for 1 or 2 people. Description and pictures are accurate.
Manager response on 2021-02-13 - Response from Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, Inc.
Thanks for your review of Mermaid Loft. We apologize about the bed, we will be asking the owner once again about replacing the mattress as it appears otherwise the home is perfect for your needs. Hope to see you again next year, with a better sleeping situation available for you at that time.

We loved our stay at the Mermaid Loft. Quiet, relaxing, clean, great location. Perfect spot for a babymoon.

Very pleasant time even in the "age of coronovirus". We enjoyed our time on the beaches, take out from our favorite restaurants and the exceptional location and accomodations.

"Great spot to spend a romantic long weekend! Just steps away from the beach. Loved it! The only thing that I didn’t like was the 10am early checkout makes for a rushed morning." 

(Due to Covid-19, intensive cleanings and inspections are done after each departure. Our cleaners and inspectors are very thorough and very concerned about guest safety. Late check-outs and early check-ins might be available if another guest is not coming or going on the same day)

"The Mermaid Loft is a cute little property just across from the Bay. We loved being walking distance to Lovers Point and were able to walk to rent kayaks to check out the wildlife, and go on the walks down the nature path each morning. The property itself is a little outdated and some of the furniture was a little tired. But overall it was clean and functional and we really enjoyed our stay. It has everything you need for a stay in the area and you really can’t beat the location!"
