Overview

Monterey House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Welcome to “Avalon by the Sea”!

**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.

You will find it impossible not to smile when you see this bright, cheerful home located in Del Rey Oaks, a quiet bedroom community within 10 minutes of Carmel, Monterey and other major Monterey Peninsula attractions. If you're a tennis aficionado, courts are within walking distance.

The contemporary 2,100 square feet, 3-bedroom, 2-bath is faced in sand-colored Carmel stone and sits up on a rise that offers an elevated position over other homes in the neighborhood. A terraced front garden is planted with drought-tolerant flowering plants.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to 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 available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear.

Your spirits will lift the moment you open the door to this feel-good kind of place. Prints of birds and botanicals and a crisp lime-green and white color scheme bring nature indoors in this immaculate dwelling that features a spacious great room, high beamed ceilings and hardwood floors.

A small entryway opens to the sunken living room with a massive Carmel stone fireplace, white leather couches and easy chair with light pouring in through large arched windows on either side of the fireplace. One wall holds numerous prints of birds, plants and flowers, establishing a theme that repeats throughout the house. You will love sitting in this room and playing games, having long conversations or watching movies on the 36” flat-screened TV tucked away in a wooden armoire.

Slightly elevated and completely open to the living room is the dining room with an off-white caned breakfront cabinet holding glassware and nick-knacks and an off-white table with cane-backed chairs that can seat up to 8. Ceiling fans in both the living and dining rooms contribute to the house's island feel.

The dining room is contiguous with a chef's dream-come-true kitchen - an absolute stunner with golden granite surfaces, pine cabinetry and a carefully conceived floor plan. At the perimeter is a bar with stool-seating for 4 for casual meals or conversing with the cook. The main work area revolves around a large island containing sinks, a built-in stove top and a stainless steel dishwasher. There is also a stainless steel oven and microwave and a large refrigerator faced with pine. Everything you could think of for preparing and serving memorable gourmet meals is here, including a selection of cookbooks.

Brew your morning coffee and exit from the kitchen with your cup of java to an enclosed patio with a couch, chairs and a table.

The spacious master bedroom has a sophisticated French feel with a cool robin's-egg-blue and white palette, broad-striped wallpaper, wall to wall white rug, filmy white draperies, a white-caned dresser, mirror and end tables, and a white wrought-iron king bed with luxurious linens. There is a small private deck with a lounge chaise for sunbathing or reading a book.

A small seating area in the master includes a white sofa and an arm chair. Take a relaxing bath by candlelight in the deep spa tub with jets in the master bathroom, his-and-hers sinks and separate shower.

A second bedroom in a soft buttery yellow has a white wrought-iron queen bed with bird-themed coverlet and white end tables. A second bath with a shower has a spa feel with its taupe and beige tiling.

Relax with a book in a third room, that could be used as an office, with a sofa that converts to a queen bed.

Beautiful, clean- safe for scent-sensitive people!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, very close to Laguna Seca. Garage. The property is close to the airport, however, one cannot hear the planes much at all. Plenty of outdoor entertaining space, weather approving. plenty of sunlight inside.

My personal favorite amenity: unscented laundry detergent. Most times I am unable to sleep due to the scented detergent on the sheets on the beds... not so in this house!

Plenty of room for everyone, spacious bathrooms, perfect kitchen, has most things an aspiring chef would need.

Great service, I would recommend this place to a friend.

We could not have asked for a better home to stay in during the week of our wedding. There was plenty of space for everyone, a fabulous kitchen, great back yard and a master suite to die for. Thank you so much for providing us such a wonderful experience!

Reviewer Comments:

This home was fantastic! It more than exceeded my expectations. It had everything. The kitchen was complete in every way. All we had to do was grocery shop. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms had very fluffy towels and spa robes. There was even access to laundry and coolers, beach towels too. The location was perfect, 5-15 minutes was the longest it took us to get to everything in town. Great access to highways, groceries gas, whatever you needed. Definitely stop by the visitors center, very helpful people there and they gave us so many options for off beat things to do that I did not find online. I would recommend this home to anyone. We plan on returning ourselves.

Thanks for the hospitality!

This place was amazing. So spacious and welcoming. I didn't want to leave. Comfortable sleeping throughout the house. Beds and sofas were clean and comfortable. Beautifully renovated and top notch kitchen. There was even a printer to email photos to! Something about a physical 4x6 just puts a huge smile on my face. All in all, simply relaxing. Highly recommended. :)

Overall excellent. We felt it was inappropriate to be charged an additional $50/night for our 2 year old and 8 mo. old grandsons though.
