**Holidays and special events excluded. Specials cannot be combined.

A touch of Europe prevails in this unique stucco two-story, five-bedroom, two bath property located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove and the sparkling blue waters of Monterey Bay.

With its pointed-arch roofline and front door, river-rock wall and manicured landscaping, this appealing house combines a sense of tradition with sophisticated style and beach comfort.

The large home is divided into two separate areas that can be rented separately or together. A light-filled second-story two-bedroom guest quarters, with bay views and sunny beach décor, features a cozy combined living/dining room and large old-fashioned kitchen.

The three-bedroom first-floor main house, with its sophisticated décor, spacious living/dining room and hardwood floors, can sleep up to seven.

This is the perfect home for family/friend reunions, wedding guests, golf buddies and girlfriend get-togethers, as all the bedrooms have been set up for either single or couples. The two units together can sleep 12 single guests or five couples and two singles.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary hors d’oeuvres and sparkling cider, passes to the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey that has recently undergone a $2 million renovation, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, over-sized towels and beach gear. Pets are allowed on the ground floor only.

The first-floor main house, which is 1,700 square feet, features a spacious living room with hardwood floors, decorative white-brick fireplace and urbane, sophisticated décor in dark woods and earth colors accented in jewel-tones of blues and greens. Furnishings include a sleigh sofa bed that can sleep one, two comfy overstuffed chairs and a large coffee table. A panel of old-fashioned half-paned windows looks out to a manicured front lawn with neatly trimmed shrubs, colorful flowers and well-established trees. On the opposite wall is a 46-inch flat-screen LED-HDTV and BluRay DVD. Built-in book cases are filled with inspirational reading material.

A sparkling kitchen, in ocean colors of crisp bright white with royal-blue and turquoise tiles on counter tops and splash-backs, is equipped with an electric stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. A stacking washer/dryer is provided nearby.

The adjacent dining room, with French doors leading out to a small redwood deck equipped with gas grill, has a dark wood rectangular table that can seat eight but expand to seat 12. A tall redwood table and chairs for two situated on the lawn near the deck affords a lovely spot for sipping morning coffee or tea while enjoying the fresh sea breezes.

The master bedroom has a king bed (with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to two twins) and is beautifully decorated with rich dark wood furniture and colors of teal blues and aquamarine greens.

A second bedroom also has a king bed that can be converted to two twins.

A third smaller bedroom features a trundle bed that can sleep one or two singles or become a king if necessary. All beds have luxury-hotel-quality linens with white sheets, a coordinating white duvet comforter and sophisticated coverlets in vibrant sea tones of turquoise and aquamarine blues.

A full bathroom features mossy and forest-green tiles around the sink, on the walls and lining the shower-tub. There is a stacking washer and dryer in this bathroom. If only the upper floor unit is rented, there is no washer and dryer available.

If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually, then 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.

Main House downstairs has 3 bedrooms (sleeps 6-7) and upstairs Guest Suite has 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4-5) Separate units, separate pricing & separate contracts. Pets allowed in downstairs house but not in up-stairs suite.

Guestbook comments from the manager
In this home, our family started two new traditions. The children preformed a play and we played an amazing game of charades! The beauty & comfort of this love filled home was a perfect setting for bonding and letting our creativity flow. We are deeply grateful to have been blessed with such a great place to celebrate the first college graduate in our family and my mother-in-laws birthday. Muchas Gracias!

HOMELESS SHELTER ACROSS THE STREET

  • 2 of 5
House was advertised as pet friendly. No yard. The home is located on a busy 4 lane street, parking as not easy. Walking my dog was scary. Home is clean, certainly not what we are use to renting at that price range.

Owner's Response: Even after some investigation, we are still unable to locate a homeless shelter in this neighborhood.
We are sorry to hear this very popular vacation rental was not a good fit for this guest.
For prospective guests, we wish to make sure it is understood that while this home has a small yard with seating and a grill, it is NOT enclosed for pets and it borders Pine Avenue.
Pine Avenue is a 4-lane street with a 25 MPH speed limit and it has sidewalks on both sides. A couple of blocks and across the street from the Gingerbread House is an elementary school, so this is not a high-speed, high-traffic street and many-a-local dog owner safely walks this street with their dog daily. It is also not rare to see a deer or two trotting along in the middle of the street!
Pine Avenue is the choice for local, small-town parades during the year (Feast of Lanterns in July, Good Ol' Days in April and the Butterfly Parade in October that welcomes the Monarchs that overwinter in Pacific Grove!)
We encourage you to call to speak with our friendly, knowledgeable Reservationists about your needs and desires so we can help you choose a home that is a perfect fit for you and your family.
With thanks,
The Sanctuary Vacation Rentals Team

A WONDERFUL WEEKEND AT THE GINGER BREAD HOUSE

The Ginger Bread House in Pacific Grove is a charmer. Very cute decor with beach themes and just a few blocks from the bay and downtown. Very comfortable and welcoming. A perfect locale for a romantic weekend or a getaway with friends or family. My husband and I loved it

WONDERFUL OCEAN GET AWAY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We truly loved our time at the Pine Ave. house in Pacific Grove. Everything we needed was pleasantly arranged. Extra blankets, folding chairs so we all could sit together at the dining table, and many little extras that made our stay so comfy. Thanks for thinking of everything so we could relax. The colors and decorations around the beach and shells theme was lovely, as were the pictures in each bedroom. Each room is a real "charmer!" Thanks for creating such a lovely vacation home! Thanks also for your quick responses to our questions that helped us plan our stay. We walked to a wonderful restaurant only 2 blocks away. And it is only a half mile (per our car's GPS) to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, and some of our group walked there from the house!

PACIFIC GROVE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The house was immaculate, roomy & comfortable. It was a perfect weekend. It is stocked w/plenty of glasses/plates/serveware/pots & pans/towels/beach towels & mats. The beds are comfy and the rooms spacious. There is plenty of cupboard space but not much counter space to work on. Luckily we also rented the upstairs unit, so we had 2 workspaces. The only thing that I felt it lacked were spices and shampoo/conditioner. The downstairs kitchen had salt but no pepper. The bathrooms had body wash but no shampoo/conditioner. All in all it's a great place to stay, within walking distance to town, excellent walking trail along the ocean, a short drive or long walk to Monterey & the Aquarium (the passes got alot of use).

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.
