"Our stay in Carmel was incredible, and renting this home made it so. The home is incredibly clean, artistic and comfortable. My husband, 12 year old son and 9 year old daughter would have been perfectly happy spending much more of our visit to the central coast in the home and on the surrounding acreage (the Steinbeck pond and trails). Jef had great suggestions on where to eat, taste wine and hike. He also provided us with tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium then had the perfect suggestion on where to eat in Monterey later that evening. I highly recommend staying here! I've rented through vrbo often before but have never been moved to write a review. I wanted to let you all know how special this place and Jef and Steph are. My family will always remember our stay in central Cali as being so special thanks to our stay in this incredible home."

"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."

"What a great place! Linda and Larry are great hosts - we had several interesting conversations on the history of the property, the amazing oak tree, and things to do in Carmel and Carmel Valley. The location is really excellent, not far from Carmel proper but with a beautiful country feel. Great hiking/strolling at nearby Garland Park. Quail visited the yard, Canadian Geese honked their way up the valley over the river one morning and the vistas are great. The cottage is very well-equipped, there really isn't anything that you'll need that isn't there already. It's a perfect place for a getaway - relaxing, comfortable but with ample room."

"Our group consisted of 7 adults and 3 year old. We enjoyed lots of room, perfect weather and brunch out on the patio. The house is very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed, even toys and books for our granddaughter! The property was close to the wedding venue for which we were gathered, but still an easy drive to Monterey & Carmel. The owners are friendly, helpful and accomodating! We had a great time and would definitely recommend this rental!"
