This 1,109-square-foot, newly remodeled 1930’s era property is the epitome of cozy comfort for both human and canine guests. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the well thought out floor plan offers room to relax, restore and plan your adventures.

A Carmel Stone path and steps that lead to the front door provide an old-world welcome. A low fence separates the nicely landscaped front yard from the quiet street. Tucked behind the main house is a small cottage where the nicest neighbor lives full time. There are separate driveways, parking areas, entrances and yard spaces for each home.

Living Space
Gorgeous wood floors grace the living room, dining room and bedrooms. The pitched, beamed ceiling with skylight lends a sense of spaciousness and brightness to the living room. A roomy sectional sofa faces a gas fireplace with Carmel Stone surround and a 55” TV mounted above the mantel.

Kitchen and Dining
The living room flows seamlessly into the dining room that’s appointed with a wood table and 6 chairs. It’s conveniently located adjacent to the kitchen. Tile flooring and open wood cabinetry add charm. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need including a 4-burner gas stove, Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, a coffee maker and other small appliances and plenty of counter space.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Bedroom #1 has a queen bed, dresser, 43” TV and an en suite bathroom with shower and Saltillo-tile flooring. Just off the bedroom, is an open room that includes the closet, a washer and dryer and a door that leads to the backyard.
Bedroom #2 includes a queen bed, night stand, closet and 43” TV.
The hall bathroom has a tiled floor and standing shower.

A door from the kitchen opens to the backyard oasis. The stone patio includes a gas grill and table and chairs, set next to a stone fireplace—perfect for alfresco cooking and dining. The fenced-in yard features a small patch of artificial turf well-suited suited for a four-legged guest. A large hot tub sits temptingly on another stone patio with a large umbrella for the sunniest days. Our sweet neighbor uses the hot tub rarely but on occasion. They are very discreet and courteous.

It’s a short drive or walk to town along the quiet streets. Stroll down Ocean Avenue to the sandy stretch of beach, one of the only area beaches where dogs can frolic off-leash. Explore the streets of the village where you’ll find wine tasting, gourmet grocers and delis, world-class restaurants, shops and art galleries. A short drive takes you to The Crossroads, The Barnyard and Carmel Rancho shopping centers. You’re not far from an entrance to the golf mecca of Pebble Beach, and its world-famous 17-Mile Drive. Plan a day trip or two to explore Carmel Valley, Big Sur, Pacific Grove and Monterey and discover the unique aspects of the Monterey Peninsula.

Driveway parking for 2-3 cars and on-street parking in front of the home is generally available.

Well-behaved small dogs are welcome with pre-approval, an additional pet fee and a signed pet addendum.

This home is a monthly rental and we request that all nights of your stay are within the same calendar month. Some exceptions may be possible, with the approval of our team and the homeowner.

Please note that this cottage is the main house and that in the back corner of the property is a small guest cottage that is rented to a full time tenant who has two canine companions. Each cottage has its own driveway, parking, entrance and laundry facilities.

An adorable house made our stay perfect for my family. The rooms were a bit compact for our longterm stay, and unfortunately, we encountered some ant problems in the bedrooms. The company promptly sent pest control to address the issue, but regrettably, it wasn't fully resolved. Despite the occasional ant bites, my family had a delightful time overall.

Thank you for your review, and we apologize for the ant problem. This year with the weather we have been getting made the last couple of months a challenge in some of our homes. Otherwise, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the positive review.

I wish I never had to leave. I loved my stay! My favorite part of every day was opening the front bay windows. The flowers outside the house were beautiful. The tree in the front yard and the height of the house gives a nice feeling of seclusion. The neighbor in the guest house is so sweet and kind. Downtown Carmel is a short walk. The couch is so comfortable! I spent many evenings on it with the gas fireplace on. Also the big shower was amazing. I absolutely loved my stay and strongly recommend it. Also, I could go on and on about how fabulous the Sanctuary Rental employees are. They honestly provided some of the best customer service I have ever experienced in my life. Yes, they truly were that friendly, kind, and responsive.

There is a lot to like about this home in a peaceful, interesting neighborhood in lovely Carmel. It was great to walk our dog every day and admire the beautiful homes and scenic beauty of the arera. There was an unusual amount of rain during out stay, which led to some power outages, which were thankfully brief, and the homeowners had supplied a powerful flashlight and small lantern that got us through.
The home is bright and well supplied with pretty much almost everything you'd need. The kitchen, as is clear in the photos, is very outdated but the owners have compensated by supplying everything you might need, including food processor, blender, cast iron skillet, Dutch oven and much more.
The fenced yard was great for the dog. The description lists the nearby home as on the back of the property, but in reality is right out the back door, almost attached to the main house. The resident there is pleasant and helpful.
The management company is exceptionally responsive. We did note there were things we thought we needed (like a coat rack) and they brought them right away. The owners do need to have more than one very small dresser for guests who are staying more than just a few days. And a chair in the living room would be welcome since if more than two people are on the couch it's a bit too cozy.
The only issue we had was with the hot tub. The cover was so waterlogged that we could not lift it. When the management company sent someone (big strong guy) he was able to lift it but the hot tub was filled with about a thousand ants. So it was not useable. And the maintenance guy told us the management representative told him they weren't responsible for hot tub maintenance, which is contrary to what the listing says. In any case, it was not possible to use it during our two months there.
But overall we were very happy with the house, the yard, the amenities, the neighborhood and the management firm. We'd recommend it
