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.

The owner once had an inn in Vermont and special care has been taken to provide many of the same amenities.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes from 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 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 accoutrements 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.

Enjoy cocktails or dinner on a private deck, equipped with a grill and comfortable outdoor furniture, with distant ocean views through the pines.

The media room, which has two large picture windows overlooking the flower-covered deck and fenced backyard (dog- and child-friendly), has a 50-inch HDTV with full cable, a video/DVD library, high-speed wireless internet connection and numerous books.

The first floor also has an updated bathroom with Subway tiled shower and a washer and dryer.

The master bedroom on the upper level, with its vaulted ceilings, tall windows and distant ocean views, gives the feeling of being in a tree house. It has a king bed, HDTV, and a wood-burning fireplace with gas kindler.

The newly remodeled master bathroom, in cottage white with buttercream accents, has an oak floor, a vintage cast-iron tub, separate shower with hand-crafted Subway tiles and frameless glass enclosure, two pedestal sinks and separate water closet. From the tub you can see distant oceans views out a large picture window, with privacy from tall pines.

A small, whimsical bedroom/multi-purpose space called the Velveteen Rabbit Room has a daybed with trundle that sleeps 1 - 2 singles or can be made into a king-sized bed with foam topper. In addition to being used as a bedroom, it could be an office or artist's studio. There is a large walk-in closet. (Please note that if guests are sleeping in the Velveteen Rabbit Room they would have to walk through the master suite to access the upstairs bathroom or use the bathroom downstairs that is accessible off the hallway.

A large second library filled with inspirational and entertaining books is located on the landing between the master suite and the Velveteen Rabbit room.

Any guest who stays here falls in love with this special Cottage-by-the-Sea called Sanctuary.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

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.
