Welcome to “Forest Hideaway”!
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
Located just a 5 minute drive from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea, this this recently updated 2-bedroom, 2-bath Comstock cottage features many of the unique historic touches that make Carmel architecture so unique. This hideaway is an escape into tranquility, nestled in a sunny spot surrounded by pines and oaks with distant vistas of Point Lobos and the blue Pacific over a canopy of trees. Pebble Beach, Monterey and Pacific Grove are just 10 minutes away by car; Big Sur is a scenic 45-minute drive.
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, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, over-sized towels and beach gear.
Park at street level in the quiet residential neighborhood and descend a few steps to a courtyard dotted with potted plants and surrounded by a privacy screen of shrubs. A table, 4 chairs, an umbrella and a grill are provided so you can enjoy a casual meal in this secluded setting.
The front entrance leads to a redwood-paneled living room with beige wall-to-wall carpeting, white vaulted ceiling, a gas-burning Carmel-stone fireplace, and a sophisticated color scheme of ocean blues, coral, browns and sand. A wall of windows reveals forest and distant ocean views. A long narrow deck runs along the back and side of the house with rocking chairs and an Adirondack chaise providing a lovely spot for relaxation.
A cozy grouping of furnishings in front of the fireplace includes a plush sofa/chaise combination that can become a queen bed, a burl-wood coffee table, contemporary upholstered side chairs, an Asian chest end table, a 55-inch flat-screen TV and a striped area rug.
A sunny den, in coral and sea-foam blues, situated just off the front entrance overlooking the courtyard has an Asian-inspired desk. Built-in shelving holds cookbooks and other reading material.
The freshly painted well-conceived kitchen will make gourmet meal preparation fun and easy. Features include a large skylight, stainless steel countertops and back-splash, stainless steel electric range, stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher. A bistro table for 2 provides a spot to sit and chat with the cook.
Swinging doors lead to the adjacent dining room that opens to the living room but inhabits its own space along the wall of windows, providing diners a glimpse of the ocean over their meals. An oval wooden table with upholstered chairs can seat up to 8. Beautiful dishes, glassware, serving pieces and linens allow you to entertain in high style. Open the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck and enjoy cocktails at sunset.
The 2 bedrooms both have white bead-board paneling and a palette of sea-foam greens, blues and sand. The master, with treetop views, has a king bed with Memory Foam topper (that can be made into 2 twins), a wicker dresser and bedside table, a 32" TV, and white shell lamps. Gaze out through the forest in a wicker chair. The coral colored master bath has a tile shower, white luxury towels and spa amenities.
The 2nd bedroom has twin beds (that can become a king with Memory Foam topper) with sea-foam blue comforter, sand-colored duvet and coastal art.
The 2nd bathroom has a tub/shower; its colors of blues and sea-foam green and sea-inspired accents makes you feel you are in an ocean resort.
One car can be parked in the garage, but there is a short, steep drive; on street parking is available. The garage contains a washer and dryer and everything needed for a trip to the beach.

"We planned a last minute stay in Carmel with some out of town family, and were able to find this phenomenal home literally an hour before our requested stay. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals was very courteous in the rental process, during our stay and post-stay. They were able to have the home ready for us in time, and the home was very well furnished and well stocked with supplies for our use and comfort. I was also very impressed with the manner in which they dealt with a small internet issue that came up. The caretaker of the property was extremely understanding, helpful and cognizant of our needs. Overall one of the most seamless vacation rentals I've ever experienced."
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, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, 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!
