EXPANSIVE OCEAN & MOUNTAIN VIEWS, POOL, LUSH GARDENS AND PRIVACY

Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Other (See Description), Sleeps 10

This extraordinary home combines a love of nature and with luxury living to create an environment that captures the essence of California coast living. Situated on an acre bluff in Carmel Highlands, this secluded 3,200 square-foot, 2-level A-frame house, with its sweeping ocean and mountain views, has an indoor/outdoor orientation designed to take full advantage of the breathtaking surroundings.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a tasting at Scheid Winery 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, plush bathrobes and oversized towels.

Spacious living areas, with vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, skylights, a wood-burning stove insert (wood provided), a wall of windows, comfortable furnishings and ocean views, are conducive to warm social time. A hedge of Cypress trees guarantees seclusion, while numerous nooks, both indoors and out, provide opportunity for quiet contemplation. And when you want to play, there’s a swimming pool, a fitness room and a game room with pool table and video arcade.

Three generous bedroom suites offer sleeping for 6-10. The upstairs master suite features a pellet stove fireplace and private bathroom with walls of rich old-growth redwood, skylights and a separate tub and shower area. The lower-level master suite has a queen bed, mirrored closet doors, skylights and a private bathroom with shower and tub. A second guest suite on the upper level has a king bed, mirrored closet doors, skylights, a pellet fireplace and a marble bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower and tub. All bedrooms are large enough to allow for additional sleeping arrangements, such as an folding extra long twin beds with or an inflatable queen bed.

The fully equipped kitchen has a central island, gas stove, convection/microwave oven, microwave, dishwasher, GE Monogram side-by-side refrigerator and indoor electric grill. An adjacent dining area seats 8.

A 600-sq-ft solarium adjacent to the pool houses a fitness room complete with universal gym, free weights, benches, elliptical machine, and an indoor sauna. (Sorry, operation of the indoor hot tub is complicated and therefore unavailable for guest use.) The extensive patio and deck includes all the furnishings necessary for lounging and dining poolside, including fire pit and patio heater. Other special features include an outdoor hot tub, an outdoor shower and a gas grill.

The swimming pool is totally private, sheltered by a hedge on one side, the fitness room on the other and a glass windbreak, which creates a series of framed views of the gardens and ocean. Heating provided by solar panels and the cover make the pool swimmable during extended warm periods of the year, usually April through October.

This is a home where the personality and preferences of the owners shine through. Their love for nature is reflected in artwork depicting sea animals, plant life, landscapes and other natural motifs. Artisan touches can be found everywhere, from the master suite’s king bed with its undulating wood frame made of tree branches to stained-glass insets in cabinets.

The house is equipped with all the latest technology including HDTV Dish Network premium programming, Blue Ray DVD, CD player and library, Sirius Satellite music and a play station with several games. It also has wireless DSL connection and phones with unlimited national long distance privileges.

There is a washer and dryer and plenty of onsite parking.

Sanctuary Vacation Rentals - Reservations purchased this house in 1983

Why Sanctuary Vacation Rentals - Reservations chose Carmel

This area is one of the most desirable places in the world to live due to its mild climate and scenic coastline. Attracted by the views and the desire to escape the noise of city living this has been our primary residence for the last 27 years. Along the way, we have discovered our sanctuary is located in a micro climate which is usually warmer and more sunny than other areas of the Monterey Peninsula and Carmel. There is also an abundance of wild life to be seen throughout the year such as Peregrin falcons, owls, hummingbirds, coyotes, mountain lions, raccoons, bob cats, possum, fox, wild boar, deer, Monarch butterflies, Canadian geese, lizards, frogs, whales, dolphins, etc.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy taking the time to watch sunsets, moon rises, moon sets, clouds on the horizon, the changes of light throughout the day, the movement and colors of the ocean, star gazing, watching nature, taking walks, picnics on the beaches and sharing friendship. As a result, time seems to run differently here infusing one with a sense of mystery and wonder. We hope you will enjoy, respect and appreciate the beauty of our environment and carry with you the revitalizing benefits and memories of a most wonderful vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a magical home. We loved the interesting art work and the beautiful garden. The home is very comfortable and we appreciated your generosity. The cheese and cracker reception was very thoughtful. We are sad to leave. We would rent this home again. The kids were never bored between all the games and the pool, there was plenty to entertain.

Reviewer Comments:
Unlike in the photographs and discription of te3h rooms, the sleeping spaces were a little sparse. The people downstairs in the small office claimed they could hear every time anyone sat in the coaster chairs and that it was loud--I checked it out, and it was a little noisy in the bath and pool room . The small room seemed to have better insulation- Acoustics are such that you can hear talking upstairs from downstairs and downstairs from up. Again, the complaints came from downstairs. The owners were wonderful and thoughtful.because there was no space at all for him . (The kids in the pool room joked that they could not sleep with all of the scarry stuff and momentos in the pool room.)
If I were you, I think you would want to warn people about the water situation beforehand. I think my husband mentioned the microwave placement took up a lot of space on the freuently used counter, he could not find teh hot tub instrucions or test kit, and says we could nt lock up the door to the exercise room---using the key--which I took inside so it would not get lost. I was glad that we checked it over previously, because we then discovered that we could not invite our other son to join us. That is everything we could to point out. None of it prevented us from having a lovely time at your property. It was obvious a labor of love and we respected that. We love many of the same things--Bonnie

Reviewer Comments:
Beautiful spot. Very very relaxing. Everything about the house was just great. We had fabulous weather so those that didn't golf just hung by the pool all day. We didn't feel the need to leave the property even for dinner! We stayed in every night. A bit more lighting on the patio would be nice, and better pillows would be great. Also,the downstairs office with the "king" bed really isn't great for older adults. It was really not described well. It'd be fine for either younger adults or kids. Other than that we just loved the place and would be happy to have the opportunity to return.

Reviewer Comments:
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this home. The reason that I only gave it a four on five has nothing to do with the home but has to do with the fact that July gets really cloudy/foggy at this location and we only had sunshine for about 3 hours in an entire week and it was quite cool outside. Yet when we drove two miles up the hill it was sunny and hot. This would be a great location when the summer fog is not around.

Wayne, the owner was wonderful and very helpful. We even had a beautiful balloon waiting for us when we arrive to celebrate my in laws 65th wedding anniversary. Thank you!

The hot tub was enjoyed by most of us, but the pool was not used because the weather was too cold.

This home is very well maintained, clean and well stocked.

Thank you for a very memorable week in a beautiful, clean sanctuary.
