Overview

Pacific Grove House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Welcome to "Gingerbread House Guest Suite"!

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

The spotless newly renovated 750-square-foot, 2-bedroom guest quarters can sleep 4 to 5 guests and can be rented together with the first floor of the main house or separately (see #3343 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for further information about the lower level, 3 bedroom, 1 bath main suite). Please note that 4 is the maximum number of guests if rented separately from the main house.

Gaze out into the distance over tree and rooftops to the brilliant blue waters of Monterey Bay from this sunlit second-floor aerie in a lovely traditional house located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove.

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, oversized towels and beach gear.

This light-washed dwelling has a combined living/dining room, 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and a surprisingly large kitchen with a long white table that doubles as extra counter space or a spot to pull up a stool and converse with the cook. With its color scheme of bright and creamy whites, the kitchen includes an electric stove, microwave and refrigerator (no dishwasher). Built-in cabinetry offers plenty of storage. Al fresco meals can be prepared on a separate gas grill and enjoyed at a wooden table and benches in a nook bordered by a hedge just off the front lawn downstairs.

The décor, with its photographs of playful otters and palette of crisp whites, sandy beiges and turquoise blues and greens, has a beach-cottage quality that imparts a relaxed, get-away feel.

From your seat on a day couch, you can look up from reading one of the numerous inspirational books provided and watch the bay in the distance. Enjoy the same view as you take your meals at a round glass-topped dining table and chairs that seat 4 in the opposite corner. Should you prefer to be entertained electronically, a 42-inch flat-screen HDTV LED and BluRay is provided. The living room also has a comfortable chaise perfect for reading or watching movies and TV.

The master bedroom features a king bed with white shutter headboard, memory foam topper and high quality spa linens.

The second bedroom, with a trio of half-paned windows overlooking the front lawn, also features a king with memory foam topper and luxurious linens and a built-in chest of drawers.

If preferred, the king beds in both rooms can be converted to twins.

The full bathroom, with its recently updated look, features a fresh white tile and vanity. You will find vibrant turquoise and white plush towels, spa robes and slippers that will make you feel totally pampered.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.

The many delights of Pacific Grove's shops and restaurants, are within easy walking distance, as is the stunning rocky shoreline of Monterey Bay with its pedestrian and bike trail that extends for miles. The popular destinations of historic Monterey and the artist colony of Carmel-by-the-Sea are 10 minutes away by car.

There is no washer and dryer, if renting the upstairs alone. If renting both units, a washer and dryer is available downstairs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I was cautious about the home at first with my young children, but we became quite comfortable. Whale watching was exciting if not a little sea sickening (we went on the windiest day of the trip) saw gray whales as well as dolphins, otters, sea lions, etc. Discovered Marianne's Ice Cream in Santa Cruz. Took an awesome trip to Elkhorn Slough not far from the home and saw 43 bird species! As well as so much more. We fully enjoyed the homes beach gear! Everything was just Amazing!

Reviewer Comments:

We spent 4 nights here with my sister and her husband and had a really wonderful time. The upper apartment we rented was spacious, very well-appointed, spotlessly clean and in a great location. We were only a short walk from the sea front and local shops and only a few miles from Monterey and Carmel. Would definitely recommend the property and hope to come again.

We loved to rent a stay with Sanctuary Vacation Rental. They were very professional sending us all the directions to get, to enter and to use all the facilities of this lovely and cozy Gingerbread House. We also found at this friendly place all we need to go to the beach and to cook our meals. Very clean and warming bed linens, blankets and towels. We strongly recommend it.

Reviewer Comments:

The gingerbread house was very appealing and roomy for 2 people and it was in such a quiet neighborhood. The beds were extremely comfortable and each bedroom was large with plenty of room to spread out. However, a closet in one of the bedrooms was inaccessible due to the fact that the nightstand was too close to open the closet door, making it difficult to utilize the robe and slippers as well as using it to hang one's clothes there. The kitchen was very large with a convenient chopping block table in the middle and lots of storage. However, there were no window coverings on the one large window in the kitchen which looked right into the neighbor's window, which made one feel a bit exposed at night. And we ran out of toilet paper the last night we were there (2 rolls for 2 people for 7 days is not enough). All in all we enjoyed the house and the view of the ocean from the living room windows. Wonderful restaurants and shops in Pacific Grove and the entire area! The National Steinbeck Center in Salinas is a must see for anyone visiting the area.

Reviewer Comments:

Promised my daughter 2 weeks in Monterey upon graduating college. This was the ideal lodging accommodation given the duration we stayed (13 nights) and food allergies which made dining out very difficult. Would definitely stay there again if we should return.
