About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Welcome to “Seaside Sanctuary in the Pines”! Home sleeps up to 8 adults and 2 children.

Ask our Reservationists about two days for the price of one admission tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium when you book this home!

Just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach, this light-filled family home in Pacific Grove echoes the seashore theme in its interior, with soothing blues, aquas, driftwood grays and browns. The 1592 square feet, 4-bedroom, 2-bath house offers plenty of flexibility for families and pet owners, with a large fenced yard for both kids and dogs, and plenty of sleeping areas.

From here, you can walk to Asilomar State Park and beach in just a few minutes. Also nearby is the incomparable 17-Mile Drive and the shops, golf courses and restaurants of Pebble Beach, and it’s also close to Pacific Grove’s quaint downtown area, full of boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and historic downtown Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea are just minutes away by car.

The sense of relaxation starts as soon as you see the walkway edged in lavender that leads to the front door. Within, the sense of gracious living is enhanced by spacious open-beam ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, and a top-of-the-line kitchen with granite counter tops.

French doors lead from the living room to an enormous backyard bordered in moss-covered Monterey pines, a place to relax and unwind while barbecuing on the gas grill, enjoying the sunshine on the patio, or gathering around the firepit in the evenings for drinks and marshmallow roasts.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary 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 house offers an open floor plan with kitchen, dining room and living combined in a great room area, making it an ideal gathering place for meals and entertaining. But when privacy is needed, it can be found in the three bedrooms down the hall and a large dormer 4th bedroom upstairs.

The interior décor emphasizes seashore and sea life motifs in the color palette of the nearby beaches. The living room’s gas-burning stone fireplace is a focal point for get-togethers, and the dining room’s wooden table and Kubu woven chairs seats six-eight. From the kitchen, with antique white cabinets and new stainless steel appliances, it’s easy to see what’s going on in the living room and dining room, and be part of the action even as you’re preparing meals.

Three bedrooms down the hall and another on the upper level offer lots of sleeping options for friends and family. All four have king beds with memory foam topper that can be converted to twins sleeping 8 singles or 4 couples. In addition, the living room includes a queen sleeper sofa to sleep 1 - 2 children.

A shared full bath is available from the hallway, and another full bath is attached to the master bedroom, both with white tile floors and gray marble counter tops. The master bath has a shower, double vanity, and separate tilting mirrors over each sink. The shared bath offers a shower over tub combo and a large mirror over the vanity.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for making your beautiful home available to our family. We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday this weekend. It was perfect for our family. We made breakfast everyday and felt right at home. The home is beautifully appointed with a gorgeous beach decor and has everything you need. My dog "Wally" also had a great time in the large back yard. The beds were super comfy. TV, cable, wifi...we had it all. I was a fabulous stay.

Beautiful and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home so close to Asilomar grounds and beach. Our stay was booked last minute (under 2 weeks) and Sanctuary Rentals provided quick, timely, and courteous information and correspondence. The rooms are all very good size and the open concept kitchen/dining/living area helps when more than one family is staying. It was extremely clean when we arrived and the grounds are really well maintained. We could get to the beach pretty quickly on foot but most other attractions, shops, restaurants you would want to drive to. We used the outdoor fire pit in the evening for warm conversations and to make some s'mores. There was a VERY slow draining tub but all I had to do was to contact Pravinesh by email using the app. I did that at 8:30am, was contacted back quickly, and had someone there before 10am to fix our issue! We hit all of our favorite spots (a few of us were former residents or have been visiting here for 40 years): Chongs in downtown Monterey, Compagno's market on Prescott (best sandwich!), the Aquarium, downtown PG and Lover's Point, Fisherman's Grotto on the Wharf, Cannery Row and the walking/biking trails, Asilomar beach a few times, and so much more! Even managed to discover a new restaurant in PG- La Piccola Casa- a lovely little pizza/pasta place. We can't wait to bring friends back!

We had a great stay at this property. The home was impeccably clean when when got there. The online pics were right on; we were more than delighted when we arrived and checked out the home. Definitely a nice and quiet home for 8-10 people.

Wonderful house with everything you need. Don't hesitate to stay here as you'll love it!

Al the neighbor in back was very kind and friendly. He loaned us his fire pit cover and gave us a bunch of wood. We felt very welcome. Hope to come back some day soon!

Lovely home, great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. s'mores, wine and cheese were great treats, kids especially enjoyed s'mores. Great yard with plenty of seating around the fire pit. We cooked daily, lots of dishes and serving utensils. Knives are not sharp bring your own, sadly, I had forgotten mine. Pots and pans really need replacement, nonstick surface is peeling. Otherwise the home was comfortable for our extended family gathering.

I would definitely stay again (longer) next time. Short walk to Asilomar and beach. Great having a garage. Upstairs loft I thought would be more open to downstairs (based on pictures) is really a more private spacious room which was nice.

Hall bathtub could use some work, non skid surface has peeled, kitchen exhaust fan does not work.

Relaxed home interior, loved the remote controlled candles.

Owner's Response: Thank you for selecting our home for your recent vacation in Pacific Grove. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the treats. We recognized that the glazing of the tub was peeling and had arranged a new tub to be installed, unfortunately this took place just after your stay. The pots and pans have also been replaced. We were not aware that there were problems with the kitchen exhaust and will have our maintenance personnel look into this. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention, we truly appreciate your comments. Please know that you can reach out to your House Manager during your next stay should you encounter any difficulties with the home.

Fantastic cozy home that has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our outing to the Monterey Peninsula. Ideal for the golfers in the family as it is very close to all the key places to play....15 mins max. Great for the early tee times in tournaments.

Great back yard to relax in and have a bon fire at night. Highly recommend this house for a party of 6.....sleeps 10 but might be a bit tight if everyone was in the family/den area at the same time.

Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the main entrance to 17-Mile Drive. 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.

Visit the Museum of Natural History, Point Pinos Light-house, tour Asilomar State Park, or enjoy the Sunset anywhere between Lovers Point Park and Asilomar Beach. Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town U.S.A. since every October the Monarchs migrate to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary where they winter until February. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is the top rated municipal golf in the state with over 70,000 rounds played annually. It is referred to as poor man's Pebble Beach due to its proximity and resemblance of Pebble Beach courses.

Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Pacific Grove. The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp where several hundreds assembled to worship amidst rough tents. Tour brochures are available at the Chamber.

Pacific Grove's Past:

The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp, where several hundred people assembled to worship amidst rough tents. In time, the fragrant pines and fresh sea air brought others to the Pacific Grove Retreat to rest and meditate. The first camp meeting of the Pacific Coast branch of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle was held here in June 1879. Fashioned after the Methodist Sunday school teachers' training camp established in 1874 at Lake Chautauqua, N.Y., this location became part of a nation-wide educational/cultural network.

In November 1879, after the summer campers returned home, Robert Louis Stevenson wandered into the deserted campgrounds: I have never been in any place so dreamlike. Indeed, it was not so much like a deserted town as like a scene upon the stage by daylight, and with no one on the boards -- from 'The Old Pacific Capitol'

By 1889, the resort was incorporated, becoming the City of Pacific Grove. The last P.G. Chautauqua was held in August 1926.

Monterey Peninsula info:

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!
