Welcome to 'Sanctuary-by-the-Bay'!

Come stay in this very special home called 'Sanctuary-by-the-Bay' with panoramic bay and ocean views that will bring you a sense of peace, balance and well-being. Allow your body, mind and spirit to be nourished by the sounds and smells of the surf right outside your windows. This unique 1,800 sq. foot, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with amazing views is located a few steps from one of the most beautiful coastal trails in California and is only a short 5-minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row.

Words cannot suffice in describing the experience you will have walking along this magical beach trail that links the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and Asilomar State Beach.

Every twist and turn brings another incredible view of Monterey Bay, with its abundance of wildlife--including pelicans, seagulls, otters, sea lions, whales and dolphins--crashing ocean waves, sand dunes, wildflowers and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

One of the best-kept secrets on the Peninsula is the Pacific Grove Golf Course with its great prices and amazing views, including the lighthouse at Pt.Pinos. Its only a 5-minute drive from the house.

Upon arrival you will be greeted with delicious hors d'oeuvres, sparkling cider, local organic coffee to start off your first morning. You will find a welcome book that tells you everything you need to know to enjoy your time here as well as numerous maps, menus, magazines about the area and inside tips on the owners' favorite places to visit and eat.

Entering Sanctuary you come through a small courtyard similar to the quaint charm of Carmel gardens with colorful flowers in mossy containers. A small gated entrance filled with orchids and flowers adds beauty to the charm of the special house you are about to enter.

You will be delighted with the light-filled rooms, tastefully furnished in neutral tones offset with earth colors of warm beige, sage green and rusts.

Everything has been designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including spa amenities, plush bathrobes, French press for coffee, a cappuchino maker, reading library, picnic baskets, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas for a great outing to the beach.

The space is light and airy, with high wood ceilings and handmade warm terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining areas as well as all the bathrooms.

In the living room there is an gas burning fireplace, seating for 8 people creating a perfect spot to read, gazing at the fire and glancing out at the beautiful blue ever-changing sea beyond the French doors. You will find a large comfortable couch with plenty of pillows and a warm throw to snuggle up with as well a small table with two chairs ready for a hand of cards or other available games. You can watch a good movie from our DVD library or HBO on Cable TV. There is a second day bed couch that sleeps one person. There are many books and magazines available for your enjoyment.

The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a gourmet multi-course dinner. You will be delighted with the vast selection of dishes, wine glasses, sharpened knives, platters, cooking and bake ware, utensils and accessories that most home kitchens don't have. You will also find a large selection of cookbooks and cooking magazines to inspire you.

The house is a reverse floor plan with the main living areas and the master bedroom on the second floor. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a large spacious step down shower.

The garden bedroom has a view of the small courtyard garden. It can be set up as one king with a memory foam topper or as two twins. The second guest bedroom has distant ocean views and has one queen bed. There is also a laundry room and door that leads to the garage.

The upper level has a large open living area, kitchen and dining room with amazing views from every window. There are two balconies with potted plants and flowers -- the best place to sit and have morning coffee or afternoon wine while watching the sunrise and sunset. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep that is aided by hearing the sounds of the sea outside your window. There is a also a small private patio as well as a T.V with cable and D.V.D. A small aerobed can fit in here.

Feel free to bring or rent a kayak, boat or bike and keep it in the garage.

We have created Sanctuary to bring you home to yourself. We create spaces that nurture and inspire from the physical location of unparalleled beauty, emphasis on supporting the earth by using ecological sustainable cleaning products, and tasteful design that makes you feel comfortable and at home. We've given our attention to detail on every level.

MANY THANKS

  • 5 of 5
Annee and David,
Many thanks for such a lovely home to call 'our own' while here in the Monterey area. Your hoe exceeded our expectations. Every detail was in place, which was very much appreciated; from the fantastic pesto torte in the cooler (yum), to the luxurious bedding, wine, sunsets and views. We can't believe we have to leave! Next time, we will stay longer. Thank you for making this a highlight of our vacation.

Warm regards

GREAT LOCATION AND VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this house for my groomsmen for my wedding last month. I stayed with my family right next door, but frequently hung out with my groomsmen in their house. They loved staying here. Both properties are similarly well-appointed, the house is comfortable and spacious and the view is great. The location is great as you're just steps from Cannery Row and also very close to Pebble Beach. The ocean-side walking path is literally out the front door. Highly recommended!

UNSAFE RENTAL AND BAD SERVICE FROM SANCTUARY

  • 1 of 5
When we arrived we realized that the house was much more run-down and out of date than the pictures and description indicated. One of the most problematic items was that the all-tile stairs had bannister railings that were much further apart than current spec. This extended to the main living area which was a 'loft'. We came with our three year old and were constantly worried that he would fall through the bars (he could easily fit through). The bars had been partly covered by a mess of wires and falling apart DVD cases in the family area... if that makes it any better.

There were all sorts of other inconveniences. The dining room 'sea grass' chairs were moldy, the fake plants around the house were also moldy, dusty and had cob webs, the towels smelled awful... you know this kind of place. Nothing worked as expected, from the hood in the kitchen to the binoculars. There was also a large standing puddle outside the front door entryway that was several inches deep. Some of the house wiring came through this area and looked extremely unsafe.

The internet connection went out on our second day. My husband is extremely good at fixing this sort of problem, but he was unable to do so. He had alerted the rental company (Sanctuary Vacation Rentals) and they did not act on getting this fixed until our last day. My husband had to miss most of our vacation because he needed to find other places in Monterrey to log in and check in at work. We expressed our disappointment and were told that Sanctuary Vacation Rentals would refund us some of our money. However, after many calls and emails they never did. They were extremely difficult to deal with and this house was the pits. Please be very circumspect before renting from them!

SPECTACULAR VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our stay! Our family of 6 was so very comfortable in this picturesque home. The beds were all so very nicely layered with the most comfortable linens. The home's decor had a peaceful and zen-like quality. The location was ideal for so many of the area's highlights. We were greeted upon our arrival by a beautiful sea gull perched on one of the porch railings. The wine and cheese that was available upon our arrival was greatly appreciated. There are not enough words to describe how this home can make your stay in Pacific Grove so very enjoyable. We are so very thankful and appreciative that this home was available for our use. The owner not only provides a wonderful place to stay but is also attentive to making sure that tourist info to enhance your stay is readily available

WONDERFUL SANCTUARY

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our stay at this beautiful home. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed-- from the table setting to the wine and cheese-- over the top! The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen for a rental we've ever seen. We took advantage of it and cooked a fresh seafood cioppino from the local fare. The beds were comfortable, fireplace and living room inviting and an all around wonderful place. We will definitely be return guests. I can't say enough good things about the place. Thank you!

VERY NICE!

  • 4 of 5
This place was so nice. The view of the ocean was breathtaking and you can see it from the "wall" of windows in the living room/dining/kitchen area. The house was very clean and felt cozy. We liked that two of the bedrooms were downstairs with the master upstairs since it helped to provide more space and privacy with two families.

They provided nice welcoming touches with the wine and cheese and the two aquarium passes. It's in the perfect location - just a few minutes walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and shops. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Car: recommended

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.
