  • Spacious house

    "Great house! We had a family reunion and there was enough room for everyone to sprawl out without disturbing others. The pool and pool table was great and we used them practically every night. The elevator wasn't working (bummer!), but an added bonus was that there were 4 kitchens. We did an Iron Chef cookoff, and had a lot of fun. It's an older house, but with lots of character. Great for hide and seek!"

  • A Sanctuary & so much more!

    "Where do we begin? From the moment we drove into the driveway, Beverly waving with a smile, we felt welcomed and embraced in this magical and secluded property. Two sweet pups were part of the welcoming crew! And don't worry, if you're not a dog person, (if that's even possible), they are very respectful pooches! The grounds are gorgeous and quiet. You feel like you are in your very own sanctuary. The pond has koi that can be fed and there are ducks who visit and the outside field brings in many other birds and gorgeous views. We never got to swim but the pool looked inviting. Ed & Beverly had rolls and jam made from their own berry bushes along with Irish butter and amazing coffee. If that wasn't enough, 2 splits of local wines to get us into the mood for what amazing Carmel Valley has to offer. Our hosts dining recommendations were spot on. (Do not, and I repeat, Do NOT miss out dining at the Corkscrew Cafe. But that is a whole other review) The guest house has a charm of it's own. The bed was perfection with comfortable white linens and comfy pillows. Plenty of room for hanging clothes and soft lighting. Fresh flowers thoughtfully placed in the bathroom, kitchen and living room. Heated bathroom floors with an amazing open shower. Our hosts supplied us with free passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and also several of the local wineries. Beverly and Ed were accessible when we needed something and there was complete privacy when we wanted it. There location is a perfect jumping off point to visit Carmel by the Sea or the breath taking views of some of the local parks and great shopping and sight seeing in almost any direction you go. So whether you are visiting CA on business, pleasure or a little of both....the Sanctuary Cottage will promise not to disappoint."

  • COULDN'T ASK FOR MORE!

    "When we drove up to the house we were so happy to see all the beautiful greenery and mountains and the house! As we unlocked the door and walked in our smiles got bigger and we knew it was the perfect place for our family gathering. The living room, dining room and kitchen were so comfortable and aesthetic for all of us to gather. I loved the living room with the tall ceiling and the fact that there were windows and sliding doors all over the house. It was simply a most beautiful setting! The many outdoor sitting areas to enjoy were wonderful. We all had a terrific time together! I’m so glad I found and chose this place! Thanks again!!!"

  • Fantastic Pool; Great Family Get-Away

    "We were 3 couples who stayed here for 6 nights. First things first, the pictures do not do this place justice. The kitchen is updated, light and bright, the living room/dining room is a great open concept and each bedroom is peaceful and private. But the star here is the pool. This is, by far, the largest pool we've seen in a home. The pool and the pool surrounding were perfect for relaxing, reading a book and enjoying some R&R. The home is beautiful. The bedrooms were great. Very large, very private. Each (except the bunk bed room) had a door onto the large, wrap-around deck. The bathrooms were perfect (2 full and one 1/2 bath). In the photos, the kitchen appears dark and out dated, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it to a a large, updated kitchen. Perfect for cooking and chatting with those in the living room/dining room. We loved the kitchen table. It's a large wooden table. It speaks of family dinners. The location is great, however, it is up a VERY STEEP and WINDING road. Best to arrive during the day. The only downside is the wifi. They have wifi, but it doesn't work well (which I did not mind). If you absolutely need it, you might want to inquire first about how well it is working. I would recommend this house to anyone. I have a few minor suggestions for the owners (non of which should deter you from renting this house!): 1. New bed linens. The bed skirt in the master had holes in it and the bed spreads in the twin bedroom had holes in it. 2. New mattresses for the twin bedrooms. 3. New couches. The living room is so perfect for relaxing, chatting, playing a game, however, the couches were well worn. They had holes in them, stuffing coming out, the padding in the cushions were gone. PLEASE new couches. 4. A deep clean. The property is clean, don't get me wrong, however, I think their cleaning crew needs to put a bit more elbow grease in. We lifted up a couch and were shocked at how much dust and stuff was under it. It wasn't from just a weeks worth, this was months worth building up. 5. New area rugs. We dropped a binky on a rug and picked it up and it was covered in hair and crumbs. Again, the cleaning crew needs to work a bit harder."
