Why Sanctuary Vacation Rentals - Reservations chose Carmel

My husband and I bought our first Sanctuary by the Sea in Carmel in 2006. Our background includes architecture, kitchen & bathroom design, Realtor, Stager ,Former Vermont Innkeeper/Chef. David -Architect-loves to create spaces that nurture and inspire and Annee likes to create places (vacation homes) that nurture and inspire. We created Sanctuary Vacation Rentals to help our friends be able to share their beautiful homes and allow families and friends to come together to experience what we believe is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and have all the comforts of a home away from home. The owners of these homes are very involved and take a lot of joy and pride in opening their home and hearts to fellow travelers. It is our deepest wish that anyone who stays at one of the Sanctuary Vacation Homes feel that this is one of the nicest places they have ever stayed including every one who assists them in the reservation process.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The cottage is stylish, yet homey and comfortable. With the lounges on the deck, it was just as relaxing staying at the cottage as walking on the beach. I would and will be recommending it to people so they can share our great experience. Marietta was excellent in looking after us and helping us with all our arrangements for our stay.

Good location, cute place, but the owner needs to pony up and buy a new bed and couch. I was in pain for weeks after my 7 night stay. For $2000 weekly i would expect comfort. :(

Reviewer Comments:
We had a very relaxing stay at the Atherton cottage in Carmel. The cottage was well appointed. We had everything we needed . It was very clean and comfortable . We especially enjoyed our time out on the deck and breakfast on the patio. It was within walking distance of trails to walk our dog. Good location near all, yet away from the busy streets of Carmel proper. I highly recommend this cottage.

This cottage was just perfect to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was charming, clean, and in a great location. We could walk to the beach and the Mission. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Carmel.

Reviewer Comments:
We were in Carmel for our son's lovely wedding held at the Mission. My husband, my 6yo son, and myself stayed at The Atherton for 7 days. It was absolutely the perfect place to stay. Plenty of room, very clean and very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor space that allowed our 6yo to play outside safely. My husband was overwhelmed by the beautiful plants and flowers indiginous to CA. The area was very quiet and such a wonderful weather change from the heat in VA. We found the town of Carmel lovely and quaint. We only wished we had more time to explore the shopping and play on the beach. The Atherton was the perfect place for us to retreat to after all the wedding events. We had the opportunity to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and after wedding and travel expenses, were quite grateful for the two members passes that were provided by the property management. I must say that the Mission was fabulous and did an awesome job for the wedding and we loved hearing the bells everyday. Bernardus Winery hosted our rehearsal and reception dinners and also did an awesome job. Delicious food, competent and professional wait staff, and beautiful scenery. We would definitely stay at The Atherton again and recommend to others.

Had a wonderful time at Atherton Cottage! If I visit Monterey in the future, this is the only place I want to stay. The location was perfect and only minutes away from just about everything. Thank you to everyone involved in making this trip a memorable one!

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.
