Monthly Rental


3 Bedrooms

2 Bathrooms

Welcome to Rooftop Retreat! This home sleeps up to 6 guests.

This is neighborhood living at its best. The classic bungalow style home, crafted in 1935, has been lovingly restored. Take in the Bay views from the quaint front porch and the rooftop terrace of this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom charmer.

The open and airy great room space features beautiful wood flooring, a pitched ceiling with beams and a skylight; and a peninsula provides seating for 4 looking into the wide galley style kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances including a gas stove, refrigerator with in-door filtered water/ice dispenser and a dishwasher. A microwave oven, toaster and drip coffee maker are at the ready.

The living area has a large sectional sofa and other comfy seating as well as a 65” wall-mounted TV. A dining table and chairs provide a good spot for gathering with the family to enjoy a meal.

Just down the hall from the main living area are the laundry area with stacking washer and dryer and the bedrooms.
One bedroom includes twin bunk beds and a roomy closet.
Another bedroom features a large closet and a queen size bed with luxury linens.
A bathroom with a roomy, beautifully-tiled shower with rain shower head is located conveniently to both guest bedrooms.

The master suite at the back of the bungalow affords the ultimate in privacy. A king size bed draped in luxury linens invites one to restful repose. A 43” television sits on a nearby dresser and there’s a large walk-in closet with a bench. The master bathroom features a tub/shower with rain shower head and a vanity with two sinks.

A door off the master suite leads to a spacious patio. It’s adorned with a huge graceful oak tree that speaks of gentle times. Next to the tree sits a small, freestanding building equipped with a desk and large monitor where you can read or work away from it all. Of course there’s a gas grill where you can enjoy a BBQ pretty much year-round.

The home’s namesake rooftop deck will beckon you to sit and enjoy the stunning Bay views. Comfortable outdoor furniture and a railing with wind-break panels provide a space for lingering and breathing in the fresh sea air.

Upon your arrival, you’ll find a complimentary bottle of wine, cheese and crackers and a supply of coffee, tea and condiments for the first morning. A welcome book and information on local attractions and activities provide all the details. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available if you need assistance.

When you’re ready to head out, you easily walk to many local attractions including the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium. Just a mile or so away along the scenic Monterey Bay Recreation Trail is Old Fisherman’s Wharf. It’s lined with restaurants specializing in local seafood, souvenir and gift shops, bars and cafes and is the launching spot for whale watching trips and fishing charters.

Adjacent to the wharf lies Custom House Plaza with its historic custom house where arriving goods were once inventoried. It’s one stop on the two-mile “Path of History” that features 55 historic sites. Just follow the yellow tiles in the sidewalk or visit for a printable map.

Across the Plaza is the Monterey History & Art Association’s Salvador Dalí Art Exhibition—the largest private collection of Dali on the West Coast. Old Downtown Monterey is just the other side of Custom House Plaza where you’ll find shops, restaurants, brew pubs, an ice cream parlor, cafes and a Trader Joe's.

In the other direction you can walk to downtown Pacific Grove or hop on the Rec Trail to Lovers Point Park.

The long driveway accommodates multiple vehicles and a garage accommodates one car.

This home allows well-behaved dogs with an additional fee.

RoofTop Retreat was a Phenomenal Rental!

by Santa Clara, CA

5 of 5

RoofTop Retreat was a phenomenal rental! My family friends and I enjoyed the greatest of what Monterey had to offer in terms of its location and view! To start, the main room provided an open space to make breakfast and discuss our plans for the day. With a newly furnished kitchen equipped with a gas grill, we found ourselves making breakfast more than expected. Pebble Beach, Carmel and Monterey were also only 10-15 minutes away, allowing us to experience the Monterey peninsula to the fullest. Moreover, Cannery Row, the Monterey Aquarium and our personal favorite seafood restaurant, The Charthouse, were within walking distance from the house! When we weren't out and about, you could usually find one of us getting work done in the separate office space which included a monitor which was a great touch for those of us used to using desktop computers. To conclude our evenings, we chose to spend our time watching the sunset from the rooftop patio which had a great view of Monterey Bay. Overall, the kindness exhibited by the staff of Sanctuary Vacation Rentals and the quality and location of the house makes this a must stay! Will definitely be coming back soon.
