About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

Welcome to "Restful Refuge"! 2 bedroom, 2 bath main house sleeps up to 4 guests. (Studio guest unit - rented separately - sleeps up to 2 adults and 1 child.)

Also Available Long Term - 6-12 Months or More - Substantial Savings! Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

Imagine yourself lounging on a spacious wooden deck watching a luminous sunset on the horizon over the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and you get a foretaste of what to expect from this utterly charming 1,200-square-foot home situated in a lovely Carmel neighborhood.

Bright and cheerful with a wood burning fireplace and hardwood floors throughout, this secluded 2-bedroom 2-bath indoor/outdoor house is surrounded by lush gardens on a large enclosed property. A delightful guest studio cottage that sleeps 2-3 can be rented together with the main house or separately (obtain further information at #3292 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website).

The ocean and Point Lobos are visible from the living room, deck and master bedroom. The upbeat Pottery Barn beach décor, with its white, chocolate and robin's-egg-blue color scheme and seashore-themed accents, will lift your spirits, making you eager to return to your home base after exploring the surrounding sights. Everything you will want to see and do is nearby. It is a short walk to Carmel River Beach (a local favorite) and the Carmel Mission, and minutes by car to the shops and galleries of downtown Carmel and the chic Crossroads and Barnyard shopping areas near the mouth of Carmel Valley. Monterey and Pacific Grove are a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur is half an hour away.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, 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 outdoors is as much a draw as the indoors in this special home. A large deck off the living room and master bedroom is equipped with 3 teak loungers and an outdoor table with green shade umbrella for enjoying evening cocktails or al fresco meals overlooking the private, fenced garden.

As you enter the front door and walk into the cozy combined living and dining room, you will see the lovely garden and ocean views. French doors open out to the deck. When you're not mesmerized by the vista, you can play cards, watch the flat-screen TV with Blue-Ray DVD or socialize in the cheery space, which includes a plush sofa facing a whitewashed wood-burning fireplace, an overstuffed chair and a round glass table with upholstered chairs that seat 4.

A fully equipped kitchen with oak cabinetry has a gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. Grab a light breakfast before heading out on your day's adventures.

Wake in the morning after a tranquil night's sleep to ocean views from the master bedroom, which features a queen bed with top-quality mattress and luxurious linens and built-in shelving. The master bedroom includes a spotless en suite full bath with combination tub/shower completely tiled in white.

A second cheerful bedroom that overlooks a rose garden can be made up as 2 twins or a king with a memory foam topper, also fitted with luxury linens. A full bathroom down a short hall off the living room has a tub/shower and counter top that are tiled in cloudy blue.

A laundry room with outside access has a washer/dryer and is shared with the guest house on the property. Parking is available for one car in a carport. Two more cars can fit in the driveway.

Home away from home in Carmel

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time. This cozy cottage was just what we needed! The kitchen was well-stocked, the bedding was extremely comfortable, a lovely place for our Carmel vacation! I would recommend it highly!

Warm & Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay. The cottage was clean and comfortable with a breathtaking view of sunsets over the Pacfic. The garden was a private oasis, although we did not spend much time there. Most of our waking hours were in town or on the beach. Carmel will always be one of my favorite places to be and hopefully we will return.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the Mesa Sanctuary house. Quiet, clean, and inviting, it was the perfect base for us to spend a week exploring the Monterey Peninsula. I was particularly taken by the care taken with the house appointments: not just the usual towels and sheets, but a well-appointed kitchen with all the comforts of home, everything in good condition and most of it new or thereabouts. I enjoyed the deck, the garden, the lovely view, and the general peacefulness of the neighborhood. (Being just a block or so from the Carmel Mission means we heard the church bells from time to time; they added to the overall peacefulness.)

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful July 4th weekend in Carmel. Our family loves going to the beach surfing, boogie boarding etc. so it is important for us to be within walking distance to the beach.

The management company is first class very professional. This is an older home that has been maintained well. I love to cook so I have to say the kitchen had every dish, bowl, utensil one could ever wish or want. That was very impressive to me. The kitchen is older needs to be updated but for a few days it was terrific.

Upon our arrival Kathleen the property manager left wine and cheese with a very sweet card. My gosh that just made my day. I will remember Kathleen's thoughtfulness.

I am pleased to say it was two bedrooms two full baths very fortunate. The best part of the house was the back yard just lovely. I could sit there for hours early in the morning. The neighborhood is quiet and very peaceful.

I am not sure we would rent this house again we would prefer to be walking distance to the beach. I would most definitely work with Santuary Vacation Rentals again they were excellent.

Loved this house. It is better than the pictures. View is great from the deck - you can see the beach and ocean. Living room furniture looks good and is functional but not comfortable. I think a deeper couch and some better side chairs and this place would be PERFECT! thanks for a lovely visit.

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.
