**Good Thru Feb. 2015. Call for details**

Welcome to "Villa Escondido"!**

This 1925 Mediterranean-style 5-bedroom, 3-bath home is the epitome of luxury, with countless touches that make it a desirable site for a family reunion, a wedding party or multiple families vacationing together.

The home has views over rooftops to Monterey Bay and is only 1 block from the stunning shoreline. It is just minutes to the quaint downtown, Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

You will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the renowned Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a Scheid Winery tasting in Carmel, and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. Spa amenities, plush bathrobes and luxury towels and provided in the bathrooms.

Enter at the side of the house through a weathered wooden gate that opens to a romantic courtyard and a columned veranda with 4 French-paned glass doors and a wooden door that is the entry. A spacious foyer opens to the kitchen on the left and a formal dining room on the right.

The living room, at the front of the house, is a wonderful space for large gatherings, with light-filled windows that face the bay, hardwood floors, a gas fireplace and a window seat. Furnishings include 2 contemporary beige couches, an easy chair, a dark wood coffee table and matching end tables, a striped rug and a wood console table with nautilus lamp. Coastal art completes the decor.

The adjacent sunroom, with its walls of glass and partial bay views, is a great spot for enjoying morning coffee. Greenery filled, it is furnished with 4 wicker chairs around a glass-topped table.

The bright, cheery kitchen has granite countertops, tile floors, stainless steel appliances and a large central island with a gas stovetop, a prep sink and 2 stools. Open shelving displays handsome dishes and glassware. Casual meals can be enjoyed at a white table with built-in seating and 2 chairs.

A fenced back yard, with mature trees and colorful flowers, includes a brick patio with a table, chairs and a gas grill for dining al fresco.

The spacious dining room, with a wall of glass doors and built-in shelves displaying seashells, is the perfect setting for formal dinner parties or family meals. A long wooden table with sea-foam green upholstered chairs can seat 12 (add chairs to seat 15).

A den with a wet bar has a sleeper sofa. A wood coffee table can be elevated for eating while watching shows or movies on a 50” HDTV with Blue Ray DVD.

A bedroom, which faces the back yard, has 2 twins (convertible to a king with Memory Foam topper) with neutral-toned coverlets and comforters, 2 white side tables, sea-themed lamps, a table and chair.

An attractive bathroom, with old-fashioned black and white tiles, has a tub-shower combination.

The 2nd story is filled with unique touches seldom seen in newer house. A charming alcove has a twin bed and built-in shelves holding a 40” HDTV, Blue Ray DVD player and video library.

The master – with gorgeous water views -- is unbelievably spacious and has a white wood king with white end tables, sea urchin lamps, an electric fireplace, a chaise and a double-width window bed with sea-foam blue coverlets. The luxury master bath has a deep soaking tub with shower, 2 sinks and a walk-in closet.

A 2nd upstairs bedroom has a white cottage queen with an aqua coverlet and white duvet comforter, 2 white side stands and seashell lamps and a tall white bureau.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful stay! This is our fifth year for the six of us to vacation together and all of us agree the house was perfect.



The golfing, the sights and the shopping was fabulous. We found that the home was well located for all the activities we love.



We would love to return and feel Sanctuary Vacation Rentals will be where we go to when looking for other places to visit.



Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful old home that has been cared for. Hardwood floors, great "scale", large rooms, crown moldings, well furnished. Easy 3-minute walk to the ocean, or less than 10-minutes to the Monterey Aquarium.
Grocery stores, Nob Hill, Trader Joes, Safeway, Starbucks...all just within minutes. Downtown PG is just a ten minute walk of five minute car ride.
Great service by the management company. Helped me secure a Christmas tree, with lights and decorations, and mailed me my sweater that I accidently left behind in a closet..! Highly recommend.

Outstanding in every way!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented a lot of vacation by owners and this was the best experience we've ever had. Way exceeded my expectations! We met the property manager the first day. She made us feel very welcome and was helpful in providing information about the Monterey peninsula. The house was festively decorated for Christmas…in the middle of the dining room table was a huge poinsettia with candles and red napkins. Christmas dish towels and pot holders contributed to the holiday atmosphere, too. The house was spotlessly clean, the kitchen well stocked for cooking and the bedrooms were inviting. We loved walking one block to the beach and seeing the sea loins and otters (bring your binoculars), tide pooling was fascinating, Point Lobos State Park is not to be missed (take the Cypress Grove trail for views you will never forget) and the aquarium is a must see. Many more fun activities and and attractions that I didn't mention. No need for a TV (even though there are some). I would highly recommend Villa Escondido!

Absolutely Stunning! Everything imagined and more!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Escondido was truly everything and more that we envisioned while we stayed to celebrate our daughter's wedding. All that stayed there were very comfortable with room to go to for tranquility. The views of the ocean were amazing. The amenities were plentiful. We were very comfortable with the set up and luxury of the Villa. The memories of our daughter's wedding will be treasured forever, and this magnificent home, Villa Escondido, added to the memories for our family. We will definitely be back to stay and/or celebrate another event!!

Great home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time our family celebrated Thanksgiving along the California coast and we all agreed it was a wonderful choice. The home was exactly as described in the listing and the rooms were spacious and inviting. The dining room was more than adequate and had plenty of space for a very large turkey and all the trimmings as well as fresh dungeness crab purchased right off the boats down on the wharf. The living room was one of our favorite gathering places and the fireplace ensured the room was always warm and cozy. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate several of us working together to prepare meals although we would have appreciated a double oven, given the size of our group. Each day we would stroll along the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail, mesmerized by the harbor seals of Pacific Grove and the beauty of our surroundings. Asilomar State Beach is only a short drive from the house and our dog, Riley had a great time running in the sand and greeting other dogs and their owners. There is a children's playground within walking distance however, Dennis the Menance park was my granddaughter's favorite. Several of us enjoyed strolling along Lighthouse Avenue and visiting the Point Pinos Lighthouse but our most memorable excursion was to the Monterey Bay aquarium, for which the property manager provided two free passes. It was such a thoughtful gesture to be greeted with a bottle of wine and a lovely plate of cheese upon our arrival and I look forward to returning again soon. I would highly recommend this property to others, especially those who enjoy being pampered.

Stunning Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with this beautiful and immaculate home. We were able to walk to the 5K race and we were able to walk home from our half marathon. We had plenty of room for 10 women to cook in the fully equipped kitchen, and we had plenty of space to gather together or find quiet places to be alone. We thought we walked into a home owned by Martha Stewart. This certainly exceeded our expectations!

Reviewer Comments:
This home was the perfect place for our family and friends to come together for my wedding weekend. We had our wedding at a nearby venue but chose not to stay at a hotel, so that we could cook and have dinner together and catch up. The house has many rooms to sit in talk in. Despite the beautiful and large dining room, our family spend the most time crowded in the kitchen eating and talking. We were excited to discover that there were beach chairs and towels available to us along with shampoo/condition in all the bathrooms.

My only complaint was that after I booked the house, it was difficult to get anyone on the phone to discuss the reservation. The email regarding payments was a little confusing. After not being able to reach anyone to make the payment over the phone, I found the link in the email to pay the balance online. The emails from the person in charge of managing the house rental were generally short, cold, and unfriendly. Lastly, I mistakenly received a nasty email 3 days after our stay that I would be charged extra for not checking out early and leaving the house in a mess. Thankfully, the email was incorrectly sent to me and was meant for the guests that stayed after us. Despite this SNAFU, I'd stay at the house again!
