If the idea of watching the waves crash on the rocks just outside your door from a tower in a fantasy house that melds elements of a castle with Victorian charm, then this 3-story retreat in the delightful community of Pacific Grove has your name on it.

There is really no categorizing this one-of-a-kind historical home built in 1883 that sits just steps from Monterey Bay and a gorgeous walking and bicycling trail that starts at the nearby famed Monterey Bay Aquarium and meanders for 7 miles along the coastline through beautiful residential neighborhoods to Asilomar Beach. You're less than a 10 minute walk along this beautiful seaside trail to Cannery Row and the Aquarium.

The exterior of this whimsical 4-bedroom, 2-bath board-and-batten dwelling, called “Captain's Castle” comes complete with gargoyles, gables, battlements and stained glass windows. The predominant feature is the corner square tower, which offers a bird's-eye view of all the comings and goings on the bay, from soaring pelicans to seals lolling on the rocks. Across the street is a vest-pocket park with flowering succulents, native plants and a mound of boulders.

The interior combines nostalgic aspects not seen in newer houses -- like beautiful hardwood paneling on the walls and ceilings -- with modern updates.

As you enter the formal entry with its high coved ceilings and built-in cabinetry with insets in rich saturated colors of royal blue, topaz and wine that match the stained glass panels bordering virtually every window in the house, you will think you have arrived at your very own seaside inn. The entry leads to a cozy Victorian style living room with a high wood-paneled ceiling, a brass-faced gas fireplace, paneling with jewel-toned insets and an antique chandelier. The elegant furnishings include an ivory brocade sofa, two azure velvet chairs, round glass and metal coffee and end tables and a modern patterned area rug. Both rooms look out to the blue waters of the bay. All living spaces on the first story and most of the second have hardwood floors.

You will be greeted by complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in Monterey, tickets for a Scheid Winery tasting in 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 luxury towels.

Enjoy games or movie watching in a spacious family room with hardwood wainscoting, a comfortable cocoa-colored sectional with matching ottoman that serves as a coffee table and a 50” flat-screen TV. An open pass-through area with wooden stools connects the family room to the updated kitchen with its beautiful wooden cabinets and Corian countertops. It is fully equipped with Viking stainless steel gas range, side-by-side sub zero refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and all the dishware and tabletop accoutrement you could ever want for serving gourmet meals.

Enjoy breakfast or casual meals at a round table for four in a sunroom facing the back patio. Or curl up in the sunroom's comfy easy chair and read a book. If it's warm enough, enjoy an al fresco meal in the wrought-iron pergola equipped with two comfortable chairs as well as a green metal table, umbrella and chairs. The back yard, which is completely fenced, includes a section of grass. Pets are welcome.

More formal meals can be served in a separate dining room that features tri-toned wood paneling with vibrant royal blue insets, a vaulted paneled ceiling, a bay window that looks out to the park, and memorabilia from the owner's years in Germany. A wooden Queen Anne table and upholstered chairs can seat up to eight.

A full bathroom on this floor has a free-standing porcelain sink, an old-fashioned commode and a claw-foot bathtub and shower with a surround curtain. A separate laundry room has a stacking washer/dryer.

The second floor has 4 bedrooms, all with beautiful stained-glass windows. The first - featuring a king bed with luxury linens and a pristine white coverlet, tucked comforter and pillows with accents of blue, wine and turquoise -- has windows with views that include the park and the bay. A second bedroom that overlooks the back yard has a king bed with luxury linens, white-on-white coverlet and comforter, an antique bedside table and a rocking chair. A third smaller bedroom, with gorgeous ocean vistas, has a queen bed with white coverlet and butter cream yellow comforter and pillow shams.

You'll find it hard to resist having breakfast in the king bed in the master bedroom where you'll be mesmerized while you dine by the waves lapping against the shoreline. The bed is fitted with a white coverlet and ivory comforter with navy blue and yellow accents.

A large white-tiled bathroom on this floor features a white porcelain pedestal sink, a deep claw-foot soaking tub and an old-fashioned step-in basin shower with surround curtain that has the water pipes exposed as in days of yore (directions for operation provided). The plum colors with white are stunning.

The piece de resistence, however, is the third-floor paneled and carpeted tower room with its windows on three sides that allow panoramic views of the sparkling waters of the bay during daylight hours and the twinkling lights of adjacent cities at night. Two day-bed couches with accent pillows of tan, blue and yellow and a round coffee table provide a comfortable setting for coming together for morning coffee or happy hour. The versatile couches can be made into reclining chaises for naps, reading or writing, or become twin beds that can be joined to make a queen with Memory Foam topper. The tower is a fabulous perch for kids or the kid in every adult.

A single-car garage is available, stocked with everything you need for a day at the beach.

Up to three cars can be parked in the driveway.

Come to Sanctuary Vacation Rental's “Captain's Castle” and escape into a real-life fantasy that will melt your cares away and create life-long memories.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have stayed in several houses in Pacific Grove and the Captain's Castle is by far the best yet! We all appreciated the view and location that the Castle provided in the tower. It was truly a special experience and we can not wait to return. Thank you for sharing this exceptional place with us.

AWESOME LOCATION WITH UNBELIEVABLE VIEW OF THE OCEAN!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Captain's Castle! The location was perfect! On our first day, we were lucky enough to see the seals pupping right out side our front door! We enjoyed being steps from the Pacific Ocean. We took advantage of this by renting bikes and enjoying the 17 mile bike ride, we were even able to store the bikes in the garage. We walked to the Cannery Row and Aquarium. We enjoyed walking to fantastic restaurants for breakfast and dinner in the historic downtown Pacific Grove. We enjoyed the 180 degree views from the "tower" with wine and cheese! The beds were very comfortable with very nice linens and towels. We really enjoyed our reunion weekend with college friends!

TERRIFIC LOCATION IN A BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We were visiting Pacific Grove from Baltimore and were delighted with our stay at the Captain's Castle. First off, the location was perfect. We were able to see seals and their new born pubs just outside our door. We were a 7 minute walk to the Monterrey Aquarium and many restaurants and bars in Monterrey. The Castle was extremely comfortable. Our favorite features was the third floor 'tower' where we enjoyed wine and cheese as we looked upon the waves crashing onto the shore. Perfect! The Castle was very comfortable and well equipped. We slept great! An added, unexpected bonus was the quaint town of Pacific Grove itself. It is a very charming place with several very fine restaurants and bars-many of which were walking distance from the Castle. We rode our bikes on the famed and very beautiful 17 mile drive. Luckily, the Castle has a garage so we were able to keep our bikes secure.

CASTLE ADVENTURE

  • 5 of 5
The winter weather was unseasonably nice so a few of us headed down to Monterey for some golf and stayed at the castle. What a find! After chopping around the links it was nice to head up to the 19th hole at the top of the tower, put on some tunes, and enjoy the view while replaying both good shots of the day. The driveway had ample room for all three of our cars and the large flat screen downstairs was good for catching some hoops. On top of it all, we didn't have to drive for dinner, just a quick ten minute walk to Cannery Row. The kitchen seemed to be outfitted really well although we only used the corkscrews and bottle openers.

GORGEOUS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The weekend I spent with friends at this wonderful home couldn't have been better! The exterior castle facade (complete with tiny gargoyles!) was certainly charming, but the interior decor and fixtures are what makes this house truly unique. The owners keep the vintage feel of the home alive with the craftsman wood paneling and the luxurious claw-foot tubs in the bathrooms. Our favorite spot was definitely the tower, where you can usually see several otters being cute in the bay not too far from shore. If you decide to venture out, it's only a short walk along the coast to Cannery Row, which is especially convenient when you have had one too many at Sly McFly's. Overall, a beautiful home in a beautiful location! We hope to be returning soon!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
I am so glad I was able to stay at the Captain's Castle! The location is absolutely perfect. The views are wonderfully serene. And the amenities are pure luxury. The attention to detail was so lovely. The Captain's Castle is just minutes from Cannery Row where my girlfriends and I were able to enjoy great meals, wine tasting with a view, and some fun nightlife. While we weren't able to visit the Aquarium, it was just steps away. But honestly who needs the aquarium when you can enjoy the views and otter spotting from the Castle tower while enjoying your morning breakfast. I really hope I'm able to visit again sometime soon because there are so many other things I just didn't have enough time for.

A MAGICAL HOME IN AN IDEAL LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
We came to celebrate a birthday and location was perfect for the occasion. It's walking distance from Monterey Bay Aquarium and the bars on Cannery Row. The views from the tower are priceless. We counted many a otter with the provided binoculars.
The house is a treasure itself: exquisite wood paneling, stained glass windows, luscious seating, and whimsical bathroom fixtures, just to name a few unique features. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

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, beach combing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tide pooling, 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.
