Nourish body, mind and spirit in this special 1,800-square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bath Carmel-by-the-Sea cottage called “Sanctuary by the Sea” that has been remodeled in recent years with a new kitchen and guest bathroom.
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 at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.
The owners have created a wonderful refuge and invite you to take time out to experience the breathtaking beauty and exquisite charm of Carmel and the surrounding Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur coast.
When you enter Sanctuary by the Sea you will find a lovely living room with vaulted white ceilings, white cottage walls, oak floors, a wood-burning fireplace with gas kindler and numerous windows. The dining room, which seats 6 - 8, opens to the newly remodeled kitchen, which is fully equipped with a professional Viking range and other first-class appliances, unique dinnerware and all the accouterments for elegant entertaining. A new queen sofa sleeper in the family room/TV room is optional sleeping for 1 or 2 children.
Also located on the first floor is a guest bedroom with a queen that has a charming white picket fence frame with two small birdhouses on the posts. Just seeing this whimsical bed will inspire you to nestle under the plush comforter with a cup of tea and a good novel.
