Video - What Makes Sanctuary Special? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwHiiuT8mh4
This area is one of the most desirable places in the world to live due to its mild climate and scenic coastline. Attracted by the views and the desire to escape the noise of city living this has been our primary residence for the last 27 years. Along the way, we have discovered our sanctuary is located in a micro climate which is usually warmer and more sunny than other areas of the Monterey Peninsula and Carmel. There is also an abundance of wild life to be seen throughout the year such as Peregrin falcons, owls, hummingbirds, coyotes, mountain lions, raccoons, bob cats, possum, fox, wild boar, deer, Monarch butterflies, Canadian geese, lizards, frogs, whales, dolphins, etc.
We enjoy taking the time to watch sunsets, moon rises, moon sets, clouds on the horizon, the changes of light throughout the day, the movement and colors of the ocean, star gazing, watching nature, taking walks, picnics on the beaches and sharing friendship. As a result, time seems to run differently here infusing one with a sense of mystery and wonder. We hope you will enjoy, respect and appreciate the beauty of our environment and carry with you the revitalizing benefits and memories of a most wonderful vacation.
