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