Come stay in this very special home called 'Sanctuary-by-the-Bay' with panoramic bay and ocean views that will bring you a sense of peace, balance and well-being. Allow your body, mind and spirit to be nourished by the sounds and smells of the surf right outside your windows. This unique 1,800 sq. foot, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with amazing views is located a few steps from one of the most beautiful coastal trails in California and is only a short 5-minute walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row.
Words cannot suffice in describing the experience you will have walking along this magical beach trail that links the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and Asilomar State Beach.
Every twist and turn brings another incredible view of Monterey Bay, with its abundance of wildlife--including pelicans, seagulls, otters, sea lions, whales and dolphins--crashing ocean waves, sand dunes, wildflowers and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
One of the best-kept secrets on the Peninsula is the Pacific Grove Golf Course with its great prices and amazing views, including the lighthouse at Pt.Pinos. Its only a 5-minute drive from the house.
Upon arrival you will be greeted with delicious hors d'oeuvres, sparkling cider, local organic coffee to start off your first morning. You will find a welcome book that tells you everything you need to know to enjoy your time here as well as numerous maps, menus, magazines about the area and inside tips on the owners' favorite places to visit and eat.
Entering Sanctuary you come through a small courtyard similar to the quaint charm of Carmel gardens with colorful flowers in mossy containers. A small gated entrance filled with orchids and flowers adds beauty to the charm of the special house you are about to enter.
You will be delighted with the light-filled rooms, tastefully furnished in neutral tones offset with earth colors of warm beige, sage green and rusts.
Everything has been designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind including spa amenities, plush bathrobes, French press for coffee, a cappuchino maker, reading library, picnic baskets, beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas for a great outing to the beach.
The space is light and airy, with high wood ceilings and handmade warm terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining areas as well as all the bathrooms.
In the living room there is an gas burning fireplace, seating for 8 people creating a perfect spot to read, gazing at the fire and glancing out at the beautiful blue ever-changing sea beyond the French doors. You will find a large comfortable couch with plenty of pillows and a warm throw to snuggle up with as well a small table with two chairs ready for a hand of cards or other available games. You can watch a good movie from our DVD library or HBO on Cable TV. There is a second day bed couch that sleeps one person. There are many books and magazines available for your enjoyment.
The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a gourmet multi-course dinner. You will be delighted with the vast selection of dishes, wine glasses, sharpened knives, platters, cooking and bake ware, utensils and accessories that most home kitchens don't have. You will also find a large selection of cookbooks and cooking magazines to inspire you.
The house is a reverse floor plan with the main living areas and the master bedroom on the second floor. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with a large spacious step down shower.
The garden bedroom has a view of the small courtyard garden. It can be set up as one king with a memory foam topper or as two twins. The second guest bedroom has distant ocean views and has one queen bed. There is also a laundry room and door that leads to the garage.
The upper level has a large open living area, kitchen and dining room with amazing views from every window. There are two balconies with potted plants and flowers -- the best place to sit and have morning coffee or afternoon wine while watching the sunrise and sunset. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a memory foam mattress for a great night's sleep that is aided by hearing the sounds of the sea outside your window. There is a also a small private patio as well as a T.V with cable and D.V.D. A small aerobed can fit in here.
Feel free to bring or rent a kayak, boat or bike and keep it in the garage.
