Property description

Welcome to "Gingerbread House"! 3 bedroom, 1 bath lower level suite sleeps up to 6 adults.

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

A touch of Europe prevails in this unique stucco 2-story, 5-bedroom, 2-bath home located just 4 blocks from downtown Pacific Grove and the sparkling blue waters of Monterey Bay. With its pointed-arch roof line and front door, river-rock wall and manicured landscaping, this appealing house combines a sense of tradition with sophisticated style and beach comfort. The large home is divided into two separate areas that can be rented separately or together (see #3344 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for further information about the upper level suite). The entire home together is the perfect space for family/friend reunions, wedding guests, golf buddies and girlfriend get-togethers, as all the bedrooms have been set up for either singles or couples. The two suites together can sleep up to 10 guests including children.

This listing is for the lower level 1700 square feet, 3-bedroom first-floor main house only, with its sophisticated Pottery Barn décor, spacious living/dining room and hardwood floors, can sleep up to 6. This lower level suite is dog friendly, however, the yard is not completely enclosed.

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.

The first-floor main house, which is 1,700 square feet, 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, features a spacious living room with hardwood floors, decorative white-brick fireplace and urbane, sophisticated décor in dark woods and earth colors accented in jewel-tones of blues and greens. Furnishings include a sleigh sofa, two comfy overstuffed chairs and a large coffee table. A panel of old-fashioned half-paned windows looks out to a small front yard. On the opposite wall from the windows is a 46-inch flat-screen HDTV LED and BluRay DVD. Built-in bookcases are filled with inspirational reading material.

A sparkling kitchen, in ocean colors of crisp bright white with royal-blue and turquoise tiles on counter tops and splash-backs, is equipped with an electric stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. A stacking washer/dryer is in the bathroom.

The adjacent dining room, with French doors leading out to a small redwood deck equipped with gas grill, has a dark wood rectangular table that can seat 8 and expand to seat 10. A small garden table and four chairs on the lawn near the deck affords a lovely spot for sipping morning coffee or tea while enjoying the fresh sea breezes.

The master bedroom has a king bed (with memory foam topper that can be converted to 2 twins) and is beautifully decorated with rich dark wood furniture and colors of teal blues and aquamarine greens.

A second bedroom likewise has a king that can be converted to 2 twins.

A third smaller bedroom features a trundle bed that can sleep 1 or 2 singles or become a king with foam topper. All beds have luxury-hotel-quality linens with white sheets, a coordinating white duvet comforter and sophisticated coverlets in vibrant sea tones of turquoise and aquamarine blues.

A full bathroom features mossy- and forest-green tiles around the sink, on the walls and lining the shower-over-tub.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually, there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house, then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors.

Easy parking on a safe street.

Within this charming city, known for its old-fashioned, friendly downtown and colorful historic Victorian homes, are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allow you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.
