Property description

Welcome to “Seahorse Sanctuary!” Home sleeps up to 8 adults and 4 children age 12 or under.

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

Envision upscale Ralph Lauren elegance blended with more casual Pottery Barn livability and you get a feel for this spacious 3-story Carmel home offering the perfect setting for multi-generational family gatherings or couples traveling together. With 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, this lovely 2398 square feet dwelling - located in a beautiful residential neighborhood within walking distance of Carmel and just blocks from the ocean - can comfortably accommodate a large family.

A short flight of stairs through a shade garden, beneath an oak and a towering pine, leads to a Carmel stone walkway and a few more steps up to a porch that extends the length of the second story. Enter into a small foyer that opens immediately to a tastefully decorated great room.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to 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. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

Sumptuous yet comfortable, the great room, with its hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters and limestone gas fireplace, is the perfect setting for entertaining and gathering loved ones together for delicious meals and lively conversation. A rich palette of crimson, mustard and other fall colors are used in the handsome traditional furnishings that include a chocolate-colored sectional sofa.

Any professional chef would covet the gorgeous kitchen, with its large rectangular central island with 4 stools, amber-hued granite counter tops and Thomasville wooden cabinetry. Everything needed for preparing gourmet meals, including a stainless steel countertop gas range, double oven, side-by-side refrigerator and beautiful dishware and table linens, is provided. An expandable mahogany wooden dining table can seat 8. Get-togethers can also spill out to an enclosed flower-filled deck with table and chairs for 6, an umbrella and lounge chairs. A path from the deck leads to a small fenced back yard. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Just off the great room is a den stocked with books and a sleeper sofa that can sleep 2 children. French doors behind a Shoji screen lead to the deck.

The house has 2 spectacular master suites - one on the third and one on the main floor. Both have king beds with luxury linens including comforters with duvets, throws and decorative pillows, gas fireplaces, wall-to-wall carpeting, walk-in closets, Shoji screens on the windows, flat-screen TVs and views out over rooftops to pine and oak trees in a nearby undeveloped canyon.

The third-story master has a desk for a computer, a reading chair and a wall of cabinets. The third-story master bath, which features beautiful Thomasville cabinetry and sand-colored tiling, features a soaking tub with jets.

The main floor master, which has French doors that open to the deck, features a white four-poster bed with a chocolate and rust paisley duvet, white end tables and vanity and an upholstered bench. The second story master bathroom is similar to the one on the third story but with a large shower.

The ground level offers 2 bedrooms that would be great hide-a-ways for kids. One has a king with memory foam topper that can be converted to 2 twins, and the second has a cream-colored trundle bed perfect for 2 children or 1 adult. A bathroom includes a tub/shower, a separate water closet and a laundry room with washer/dryer.

Park 2 cars in a double-car garage, which has space for bicycles; 2 cars can park in the driveway.
