Carmel By the Sea house description

Welcome to "Sea Shell Guest Cottage"!

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

Escape into a mini-fantasy world in this delightful 650-square-foot guest cottage situated in a quiet residential neighborhood just a one block stroll to downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. Sparkling clean and refurbished in recent years, this fanciful one-bedroom, with its accoutrements of mermaids, seashells, starfish and other undersea imagery, offers a perfect vacation respite for up to three adults or two adults and two children. This is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, with its sunny, sand-sea-and-sky color scheme, whimsical objets d'art and sumptuous bath and bed linens that will make you feel like you are at a luxury spa.

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, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

One open, airy room with a vaulted ceiling and skylights comprises the living, dining and kitchen areas. A beach-like feel is achieved with sand-colored tile flooring, a rattan throw rug, and white furnishings that impart a bright, sun-splashed look to the living room, which includes a Plasma TV with Blue Ray DVD player. The plush sofa, that can be made really comfortable for sleeping with a memory foam pad, is deep enough to sleep a child or teenager.

The kitchen, with its brand-new granite counter tops and glossy white cabinetry, has a small gas range, oven and full refrigerator (no dishwasher). A round white table with four chairs is provided for intimate dining.

The handsome new bathroom, which is tiled throughout, features a granite countertop and shower over tub.

You will sleep like a baby on the queen-sized bed with its new Sealy Posturepedic extra-plush mattress and ultra soft, luxury linens.

A Dutch door in the bedroom leads to a private patio and lush garden filled with colorful flowering plants that flourish all year round in Carmel's temperate Mediterranean climate. You can dine al fresco at a bistro tables and chairs; a gas grill is provided for outdoor cooking. You can access a stacking washer/dryer from the patio.

The cottage is within walking distance of the remarkable selection of shops, boutiques galleries and restaurants in the village of Carmel. Bruno's Market, a gourmet grocery store that is a Carmel trademark, is just a few blocks away. Breathtaking white sand beaches skirted by the Monterey Peninsula's trademark Cypress trees are an ambitious but doable walk. In the car, you can be at Carmel Beach in a matter of a few minutes.

A pathway along the fence-line just outside the guest house door leads to a charming vest-pocket park. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

The cottage is situated in a completely enclosed and private area behind a main house - also available for rental -- that can accommodate five adults or four adults and two children. You can book our 2 bedroom, 1 bath main house (see #3274 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for more information) separately or together with this guest cottage.

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.

Other Activities: whale, dolphin & otter watching!
