Property description

Welcome to "Sanctuary-by-the-Bay"!

**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

This unique 1,800 sf, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath town home features panoramic ocean views and 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. This 15 mile trail 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 and natural scenery. One of the best-kept secrets is just 5 minutes away - the Pacific Grove Golf Links with its great prices and amazing views, including the lighthouse at Pt. Pinos.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of sparkling wine or cider, passes from the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, and a basket of local information. You will find a welcome book that tells you everything you need to know about the home and the local area. Everything has been designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including spa amenities, plush bathrobes, French press for coffee, cappuccino maker, reading library, picnic baskets, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas for an outing to the beach.

Enter Sanctuary by the Bay through a small courtyard with colorful flowers in mossy containers. A small gated entrance filled with orchids and flowers adds beauty to the special home you are about to enter. You will be delighted with the light-filled rooms, tastefully furnished in neutral and earth tones. The space is light and airy, with high wood ceilings and handmade terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining areas as well as all the bathrooms.

The house has a reverse floor plan with the main living areas and the master bedroom on the second floor to take full advantage of bay views. 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 sun rise and set. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a gourmet multi-course dinner. Discriminating chefs will appreciate the vast selection of dishes, wine glasses, sharpened knives, platters, cooking and bakeware, utensils and accessories provided. A large selection of cookbooks and cooking magazines are on hand to inspire you.

In the living room there is a gas burning fireplace and seating for 8. Gaze at the fire while enjoying views of the 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 movie from our DVD library or HBO on cable TV. There is a second couch/daybed that can sleep one person. There are many books and magazines available for your enjoyment.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with a memory foam mattress and a small balcony overlooking the bay. A small aerobed can fit in this room as well.

On the first floor are two quiet bedrooms and a bathroom with a spacious step down shower.
The garden bedroom has King Bed that can be split 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.

Location

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.
