Welcome to 'The Carmel Penthouse'!

Enjoy the full-blown Carmel-by-the-Sea experience without ever having to get in your car from this sophisticated 2-bedroom apartment called “The Penthouse,” located in the heart of this charming village and just a few blocks from the beach. Sit on the balcony and enjoy filtered views over treetops of the ocean and Point Lobos and a vest-pocket park across the street, while all the exciting cultural offerings of this lively community are just outside your door.

The entrance to The Penthouse is tucked away off Lincoln Street in a charming courtyard called Cortille San Remo. A flight of stairs leads to an exterior passageway to the entrance of this spotless recently updated urban (as urban as you get in this charming European-style village) hideaway that would be a perfect romantic honeymoon destination or an escape for two couples vacationing together.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary 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 oversized towels.

The entry hall wends around a corner and opens to a great room that comprises the living room and kitchen. A soothing neutral palette of gray, taupe, and sand and off white, with accents of robin's egg blue, mustard and rust, weaves throughout the apartment, giving it a calming unity.

The living room, which has rattan shades on floor-to-ceiling windows, faces west and opens out to a long, narrow balcony partially framed in glass that runs along two sides of the apartment. The balcony is furnished with 2 teak chairs and a section of petrified wood from a tree trunk that serves as an occasional table to hold your late afternoon aperitifs while you relax and watch the colors change in the sky at sunset. The living room is bathed in soft coastal light from windows built into an elevated cupola in the ceiling. Furnishings include a cozy taupe sofa, metal and unfinished wood coffee table, two rattan chairs with upholstered cushions, a dark wood bureau console and a 56” flat-screen TV.

The gorgeous chef's dream kitchen has glossy ivory cabinets, muted taupe-colored granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher and microwave, and a long island that contains the sink. Contemporary wood, metal and rattan stools allow loved ones to cozy up to the island to entertain the chef or help with meal prep. Enjoy your gourmet meals at a round table that can seat 4 in the corner of the living room.

The spacious master bedroom features a king bed with rattan headboard and a brown, gray and blue patterned comforter, a handsome whitewashed wood dresser and matching bedside cabinets, glass table lamps with metal trim, a rattan chair, and a flat-screen TV. Step out through French doors to the balcony and breathe in the fresh ocean breezes first thing in the morning before you start your day. End the day by relaxing in the deep soaking tub seated in granite in the gorgeous tiled master bath and gaze at the stars through the skylight. The bathroom has a contemporary feel with a square porcelain sink, pewter fixtures and sand-colored tiles throughout ornamented with a harlequin pattern of taupe and sand diamond-shaped tiles over the tub.

A second bedroom features a queen bed with built-in units beneath it containing wicker baskets for clothing storage, a white dresser, a blue distressed wood bedside table, a metal table and standing lamps and a flat-screened TV. A second bathroom, also with gleaming sand-colored tile and a contemporary feel, has a shower with a glass door.

Underground parking is available for one car.

When you feel like you do want to venture out, the fascinating communities of Pacific Grove (with its Victorian charm), Monterey (with his old California history) and Pebble Beach (with its world-class golf courses) are within a 10-minute drive. The wine tasting of Carmel Valley is 20 minutes away. Big Sur is a breathtaking 40-minute drive.

30 night minimum per city of Carmel. Inquire directly for the best rates, specials and current availability. Additional rate details and terms may be seen on our website at www.sanctuaryvacationrentals.com, or feel free to contact one of our friendly, knowledgeable reservationists to receive a full quote via email.

Notes:
LOCATION Situated on the Carmel Bay in Central California on the southern bend of the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel-by-the-Sea is 120 miles south of San Francisco, 350 miles north of Los Angeles and 26 miles north of Big Sur. HISTORY OF FOUNDING Fifty years after Columbus discovered America, Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo sighted the white sands and green pines of Carmel. Two centuries later, in 1771, Father Junipero Serra established Mission San Carlos de Borromeo on a knoll overlooking the Carmel Bay—the jewel and the heartbreak of his ministry. In the early 1900s, the village of Carmel began its growth around an eclectic group of young artists, writers and intellectuals. CLIMATE Carmel enjoys moderately warm temperatures year round, with an average high of 65° F and an average low of 48° F. September and October (Indian Summer) offer the best weather of the year, with an average high of 72° F.
