Property description

Welcome to “Captain’s Castle”! Home sleeps up to 8 adults.

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

If the idea of watching the waves crash on the rocks just outside your door from the tower of a fantasy house that melds elements of a castle with quaint Victorian charm, then this 3-story retreat has your name on it.

This historic home built in 1883 that sits just steps from Monterey Bay and a gorgeous walking/bicycling trail that meanders for 15 miles along the coastline. You're less than a 10 minute walk along this trail to Cannery Row and the aquarium.

The exterior of this whimsical 2356 square feet, 4-bedroom, 2-bath board-and-batten home, called “Captain's Castle,” comes complete with gargoyles, gables and stained glass windows. The predominant feature is a square tower that offers a bird's-eye view of all the comings and goings on the bay.

As you open the front door to the entry, with its coved ceiling and built-in cabinetry with insets of royal blue, topaz and wine that match the stained-glass panels framing virtually every window in the house, you will feel you are in your own seaside inn. The entry leads to a cozy Victorian-style living room with a high paneled ceiling, brass-faced gas fireplace and an antique chandelier. The elegant furnishings include an ivory brocade sofa, 2 azure velvet chairs and patterned area rug. Both rooms look out to the bay. The 1st story and most of the 2nd have hardwood floors.

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.

Enjoy movies in a spacious family room with hardwood wainscoting, sectional sofa, ottoman and a 50” flat-screen TV. An open counter with stools connects the family room to the updated kitchen with its beautiful wood cabinets and slate gray Corian counter-tops. Everything you could desire for preparing and serving fabulous gourmet meals is available, including a Viking stainless steel gas range, Sub Zero side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and beautiful dishes and table linens.

Enjoy coffee or casual meals at a round table for 4 in a sunroom facing the fenced-in back patio or take your food outdoors to the wrought-iron pergola equipped with 2 comfortable chairs, a metal table and chairs and umbrella. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

More formal meals can be served in a paneled dining room with a vaulted ceiling and a bay window. A wooden Queen Anne table and upholstered chairs can seat up to 8.

A full bathroom on this floor has a claw-foot bathtub/shower with a surround curtain. An adjoining laundry room has a stacking washer/dryer.

The 2nd floor has 4 bedrooms. The first – with a king bed - has windows that look to a park and the bay. A 2nd bedroom, overlooking the backyard, has a king bed, an antique bedside table and a rocking chair. A 3rd smaller bedroom, with ocean vistas, has a queen bed. Bask in ocean views from the king bed in the master bedroom. All beds feature luxury linens.

A large white-tiled bathroom with plum accents features a deep claw-foot tub and a separate step-in basin shower with water pipes exposed as in days of yore (directions for operation provided).

The most fun, however, is the 3rd-floor tower with its panoramic views of the bay during the day and the twinkling lights of adjacent cities at night. Two couches, chairs and a round coffee table provide the perfect setting for morning coffee or happy hour. Children 12 and younger must be supervised at all times in this room due to the 3rd story windows that open out.

Garage and driveway can park up to 3 cars.

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, beach combing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tide pooling, 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.
