Welcome to “Storybook Cottage!”

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

You will be enchanted from the moment you lay eyes on this picture-perfect 2-story, 4-bedroom 2-bath fairytale cottage with its warm wheat-colored stucco exterior accented with soft-green shutters and trim, white picket fence and front yard planted in colorful flowering natives. The entire home has been updated to perfection and is furnished with a casually sophisticated decor.

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.

A combined living/dining room features a painted-brick gas fireplace, dark hardwood floors, sand-colored walls, filmy white draperies and a white ceiling crisscrossed with dark brown beams. Arched doors and decorative accents throughout add to the magic of this unique cottage.

Relax and enjoy conversations in a cozy living room with two comfortable white sofas, an upholstered arm chair and an ottoman that serves as a coffee table or extra seating, all atop a floral area rug. There is a 42" HDTV with Blu-Ray Disc Player, a small video collection and a small library.

Enjoy meals in the nearby dining area, which has a pine-topped farm-style table, a bench plus 6 chairs with patterned cushions to seat 8.

The newly renovated kitchen is gorgeous - equipped with everything a chef could want to create gourmet meals. Among the features: white granite counter tops, gray cabinetry, a central island, white tile floors in a honeycomb pattern and an antiqued hutch. Gleaming stainless steel appliances include a gas range in the central island, an oven, side-by-side refrigerator and a dishwasher. A nook holds a stacking washer-dryer behind a wooden door. French doors from the kitchen, offering peeks of the bay, open to a side yard with lawn enclosed by a 6’ redwood fence. A gas grill and a table for 4 are provided.

A small pass-through bathroom between the kitchen and a sitting room has a shower with white honeycomb tile, a free-standing ceramic sink and a commode.

Relax with a book on a white wrought-iron trundle bed in a small adjacent room that could be a 4th bedroom. The trundle, which has a white coverlet and embroidered pillows, can sleep 2. This room also includes a wing-back chair, two small wrought iron tables, a wrought-iron lamp and a floral area rug.

The 2nd story has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. The handsomely appointed master has glimpses of the water between trees. The bedroom is furnished with a queen with luxury linens, blue and white coverlet and shams, bedside tables with wrought iron bases shaped like tree branches, an antique oak dresser, 2 small trunks, and a carved-wood-framed chair upholstered in a white and blue floral pattern.

The bathroom has a small shower with tan and brown checkerboard-patterned tiles, a white tiled floor and a free-standing ceramic sink with an oval mirror.

Bedroom 2 has two twins which convert to a king with Memory Foam topper, with luxury linens, a patterned area rug and 2 white dressers.

The 3rd smaller bedroom has a double bed with luxury linens, white floral quilted coverlet, white wooden bedside tables and a small desk. A corner window reveals whitewater crashing on Lover's Point in the distance.

One car can be parked in the driveway; on-street parking is available. Everything is provided for a day at the beach, located only 5 minutes away. The aquarium is about 20 minutes away on foot.

We had a lovely few days at Storybook Cottage, the kitchen is THE most well equipped kitchen I have ever encountered!

Access to TV on demand was an unexpected bonus, not that we watched much.

It was a short walk to the Aquarium (which was excellent). We can recommend the scuba diving opportunities for 8-13 year olds, our youngest had a fantastic time.

It was a lovely place to stay, I would recommend it with hesitation (and this from someone who's fussy!).

Reviewer Comments:

This home is so inviting the moment you walk through the white picked fence gate and gaze upon the California native vegetation which is perfect for attracting the Butterflies during their season stays. Walking through the front door I felt very drawn to the warm and inviting decor of the home and the painted stone fireplace. I spent many mornings with my coffee and book warming by the fire. The kitchen is beautiful with everything you need to make a delicious meal and it has a washer/dryer in the kitchen hidden behind a cabinet door which I used. Nice to have 2 bathrooms and 4 beautifully decorated bedrooms to give you that old world charm that this home presents. This home was completely redone inside and out, very well kept and extremely clean.

The location was great. Your only blocks from Cannery Row and Aquarium and the 7 mile trail. We ran every morning down to the trail for our daily run and you are so close to downtown with all it's resturants and cute shops. If you are a walker then you can walk to everything. Also only minutes to Carmel and it only was 25 miles to Big Sur and 15 min to Point Lobos. Santa Cruz was just about 30 min. We had a great time and would visit again. Great for kids to rent bikes and beach at Lovers Point too. You too will feel the love and attention that Storybook Cottage was given to make sure you feel invited and at home, and be on the look out for the deer that pay visits through town and our last day we had one come up to the front gate and greet our daughter that morning. Love it!

cute and cozy rental

  • 4 of 5

the rental was "almost" exactly what i had expected from the posted pictures of this cottage. overall, the people in our party enjoyed our stay here. i will list two cons we only had about this place...

* the sink in the downstairs bathroom is teeny-tiny. cute for young children but yet cold and hot water comes out of two different faucets.

* not a lot of room in the shower stalls (i'm a petite 5'1"). the taller men (5'11") were able to use them but not too comfortable. also, if you have children who only take baths, it'll be a problem for there is no hand-held shower head option. (i think i'll email the management company with a suggestion for hand-held shower heads.)

now to the pros...

roomy and updated kitchen. we enjoyed cooking in the well-stocked kitchen that we didn't go out to eat which saved us some money and that's always a plus. :) ample seating in the dining room. very cozy living with a great fireplace. the beds were cozy. nice linens and towels.

the management company is very professional and thorough and booking was very easy.

i would rent another property from sanctuary vacation rentals again.

Monterey Bay Aquarium
"Shouldn't be missed!"

Pacific Grove is home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the main entrance to 17-Mile Drive. Within this charming city, known for its old-fashioned, friendly downtown and colorful historic Victorian homes, are spectacular vistas and recreational opportunities. Surfing is ideal at Asilomar State Beach. Kayaking and scuba diving allow you to visit with playful otters. Tide pooling for the nature enthusiast is available at several beaches. A walk or bike ride along the shoreline recreation trail offers breathtaking views of paradise.

Visit the Museum of Natural History, Point Pinos Light-house, tour Asilomar State Park, or enjoy the Sunset anywhere between Lovers Point Park and Asilomar Beach. Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town U.S.A. since every October the Monarchs migrate to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary where they winter until February. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is the top rated municipal golf in the state with over 70,000 rounds played annually. It is referred to as poor man's Pebble Beach due to its proximity and resemblance of Pebble Beach courses.

Enjoy a walking tour of downtown Pacific Grove. The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp where several hundreds assembled to worship amidst rough tents. Tour brochures are available at the Chamber.

Pacific Grove's Past:

The town had its beginning in 1875 as a summer Methodist camp, where several hundred people assembled to worship amidst rough tents. In time, the fragrant pines and fresh sea air brought others to the Pacific Grove Retreat to rest and meditate. The first camp meeting of the Pacific Coast branch of the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle was held here in June 1879. Fashioned after the Methodist Sunday school teachers' training camp established in 1874 at Lake Chautauqua, N.Y., this location became part of a nation-wide educational/cultural network.

In November 1879, after the summer campers returned home, Robert Louis Stevenson wandered into the deserted campgrounds: I have never been in any place so dreamlike. Indeed, it was not so much like a deserted town as like a scene upon the stage by daylight, and with no one on the boards -- from 'The Old Pacific Capitol'

By 1889, the resort was incorporated, becoming the City of Pacific Grove. The last P.G. Chautauqua was held in August 1926.

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!
