Pacific Grove townhome description

Come stay in this very special Sanctuary by the Bay with panoramic ocean views that will bring you a sense of peace, balance and well-being. Allow your body, mind and spirit to be nourished by the sounds and smells of the surf right outside your windows. This unique 1,800 sq. foot, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is located a few steps from one of the most beautiful coastal trails in California and is only a short 5-minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row.

Words cannot describe the experience you will have walking along this magical coastal trail that links the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and Asilomar State Beach. Every twist and turn brings another incredible view of Monterey Bay, with its abundance of wildlife--including pelicans, seagulls, otters, sea lions, whales and dolphins--crashing ocean waves, sand dunes, wildflowers and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

One of the best-kept secrets is the Pacific Grove Golf Course with its great prices and amazing views, including the lighthouse at Pt. Pinos. It’s only a 5-minute drive from the house.

Upon arrival you will be greeted with hors d'oeuvres, sparkling cider, local organic coffee to start off your first morning. You will find a welcome book that tells you everything you need to know to enjoy your time here as well as numerous maps, menus, magazines about the area and inside tips on the owners' favorite places to visit and eat.

Entering Sanctuary you come through a small courtyard with colorful flowers in mossy containers. A small gated entrance filled with orchids and flowers adds beauty to the charm of the special house you are about to enter.

You will be delighted with the light-filled rooms, tastefully furnished in neutral tones offset with earth colors of warm beige, sage green and rusts.

Everything has been designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including spa amenities, plush bathrobes, French press for coffee, a cappuccino maker, reading library, picnic baskets, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas for a great outing to the beach.

The space is light and airy, with high wood ceilings and handmade warm terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining areas as well as all the bathrooms.

In the living room there is an gas burning fireplace, seating for 8 people creating a perfect spot to read, gazing at the fire and glancing out at the beautiful blue ever-changing sea beyond the French doors. You will find a large comfortable couch with plenty of pillows and a warm throw to snuggle up with as well a small table with two chairs ready for a hand of cards or other available games. You can watch a good movie from our DVD library or HBO on Cable TV. There is a second day bed couch that sleeps one person. There are many books and magazines available for your enjoyment.

The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a gourmet multi-course dinner. You will be delighted with the vast selection of dishes, wine glasses, sharpened knives, platters, cooking and bake ware, utensils and accessories that most home kitchens don't have. You will also find a large selection of cookbooks and cooking magazines to inspire you.

The house is a reverse floor plan with the main living areas and the master bedroom on the second floor. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a large spacious step down shower.

The garden bedroom has King Bed that can be splt into two twins with view of a small courtyard and the larger bedroom with queen bed has distant ocean views. There is also a laundry room on the first floor.

The upper level has a large open living area, kitchen and dining room with amazing views from every window. Enjoy morning coffee or afternoon wine while watching the sunrise and sunset. There is another balcony off the master bedroom.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep that is aided by hearing the sounds of the sea outside your window.

              The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.
