Welcome to 'The Last Resort'!

Escape to this extraordinary and secluded 2-level, 3,600 square-foot A-frame home that is perfectly situated on a 2-acre bluff in Carmel Highlands to take full advantage of the magnificent ocean and mountain views of the Pacific Coast.

This home is newly remodeled with beautifully grained teak hardwood and Jerusalum stone floors, rustic solid wood and stained glass mahogany doors and many other updates too numerous to mention but sure to please.

With a spacious, open floor plan, vaulted beam ceilings, walls of windows and uninterrupted amazing views the outdoors is invited in creating a sense of harmony, balance and well-being. Light filled rooms are tastefully furnished with your comfort and enjoyment in mind.

Our Welcome Book informs guests of everything one needs to know to enjoy your stay in this magical refuge. We have also included information on the local area and attractions on the Monterey Peninsula, maps, menus and tips about some of our favorite restaurants.

On each level there are two spacious master bedroom suites, both with a king size bed and private bathroom. Experience the quiet serenity and peacefulness found in the garden views of the meditative lower level master bedroom suite. This suite's bathroom is clad with rich old growth redwood on the walls and vanity. It has a tub/shower combination and is finished off with a beautiful granite countertop and gold-tone genie-like fixtures.

Yet another spacious and charming guest bedroom suite with a private bathroom is located on the upper level. This heart-warming room has a queen size sleigh bed and mirrored sliding closet doors that create a picture perfect portrait of the room's beauty and tranquility. The in-suite bathroom displays beautiful marble in the tub/shower enclosure as well as the floor. A shell shaped pedestal sink with gold-tone genie-like fixtures and ocean themed artwork complement each other perfectly.

All bedroom suites are large enough to accommodate additional sleeping provisions, such as extra long twin folding beds with memory foam mattresses or a queen-sized aerobed.

On the lower level, an office offers additional comfortable accommodations with a sofa unit that can be made into either a king size bed or into two extra long twin beds.

The fanciful kitchen, located on the upper level, can accommodate several chefs simultaneously and is well-equipped to make gourmet cooking a breeze. There is a wealth of countertop work space, a center island, Viking gas cook top, electric double ovens (one of which is a convection oven), full size microwave oven, side-by-side Monogram refrigerator (with thru door reverse osmosis water and ice dispensers), a Jenn-Air indoor electric grill and dishwasher. Outdoors, adjacent to the house, a propane Weber barbecue grill is convenient and ready for use. Small appliances such as a food processor, blender, hand mixer, juicer, coffee maker, tea pot, crock pot, waffle maker, etc. are all at the ready to assist you in preparing your favorite meals. A bountiful selection of utensils, cooking and bake ware, dishes, glasses, as well as plastic dishes and glasses for poolside and outdoor dining, serve ware and accessories are provided. Menu planning is easy since the kitchen is stocked with a generous assortment of spices, herbs and seasonings, along with coffee, powdered creamer, sugar, flour, and salt and pepper all for your use and convenience.

The spacious dining area is just steps away from the kitchen and offers sweeping ocean, garden and mountain views. The generously sized dining table seats 8-10 guests.

In the solarium, just off of the dining room and kitchen, experience first hand the captivating views of nature in all its glory.

The mirrored fitness room is equipped with free weights, benches, mats, a multi-purpose weight machine, an elliptical machine, sauna and half bathroom. The exercise room overlooks the pool, mountain ridge, ocean and gardens and has a very comfortable hammock swing for just hanging out.

The swimming pool and deck area are completely private, sheltered by a Cypress hedge on one side, the fitness room on the other and a glass windbreak, which creates a series of picture perfect framed views of the gardens and ocean. The pool is heated with solar energy and is swimmable during extended warm periods of the year, usually April through late October. The large pool deck area has a dining table with chairs, patio umbrellas and a sufficient number of chaise lounge chairs for relaxing while sunbathing or star gazing.

This home has all the latest technology including two large screen HD televisions, Dish Network premium satellite programming, Blue Ray DVD and CD players, a movie library, Sirius Satellite music, I-pod docks, and a play station with several games. Wireless DSL, an answering machine and AT&T phone service with free unlimited domestic calls are all available for guest use.

Additional amenities this lovely home offers its guests are: a whole-house water purification system, reverse osmosis drinking water system, central vacuum system, new stacking washer and dryer, central heating and air filtration system, a monitored alarm, an automatic start generator in the event of a power outage, interior and exterior programmed accent lighting as well as plenty of onsite parking.

'The Last Resort' in Carmel Highlands is located at the gateway to Big Sur (about 10 minutes to Carmel, 30 minutes to Big Sur) and is the perfect location for your next vacation. The winning combination of the magic our home offers, coupled with our attention to detail and Carmel being one of the most beautiful places on the planet, it is destined to be one of the most enjoyable and memorable vacation experiences ever.

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.

Video - What Makes Sanctuary Special? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwHiiuT8mh4

Sanctuary Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 1983

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.

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.

LONG LOVELY WEEKEND AT THE LAST RESORT

  • 5 of 5
We spent an enchanting, relaxing long weekend at this lovely vacation rental. What we enjoyed most was the fabulous garden and the serenity and privacy of the property. This gave us the opportunity not only the opportunity to connect as a family but also to connect with the fantastic nature surrounding the home. Our host anticipated our every need, ensuring comfort above and beyond. Thanks, we WILL be back!

QUIET, PRIVATE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
The description of this property is spot on! The view of the ocean was beautiful! The home & property were very private with shrubbery surrounding the property, yet it did not compromise the ocean view. We enjoyed the pool (even though it was early May) and we used the hot tub everyday while enjoying the view. My family is already talking about returning next year they enjoyed it so much. There were so many places to find a comfortable place to hang out - whether or not you were inside or outside. The owner was wonderful & great to work with and made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed (thanks again Wayne). It was a great place to get away from it all, yet we were close to all that Carmel & Monterey had to offer. Thanks again Wayne for sharing your slice of paradise!
