Welcome to 'Restful Refuge Guest House'!
** Save $1000 for May!
** When this Guest House is rented with the main house, rent is $150 per night plus cleaning and tax; otherwise normal rates apply.
Escape to your own little island of tranquility in this 600-square-foot studio guest cottage that perfectly encapsulates Carmel's unique style of casual comfort and urbane sophistication. Situated in a lovely quiet residential area, it is just minutes from stunning white beaches and the many exciting shops and restaurants of downtown Carmel and environs. A two-bedroom, two-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary hors d'oeuvres and wine, spa passes from 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, embroidered spa bathrobes, slippers and over sized towels and beach gear.
Natural sisal and jute rugs over a wide-plank wood floor contribute to the upscale beach motif, with its white, chocolate brown, tan and sea-foam color scheme and bright, upbeat tone. Warm yourself by a cheery wood stove while you play games, read or watch a 46-inch LCD HD TV with dish network service from a cushy white couch and chaise with an ottoman coffee table. If you choose, you can shop for fresh meats and seafood, fruits and veggies, gourmet cheeses, wines and pastries at nearby purveyors of local delicacies and prepare your own meals in the full-sized fully equipped white-tiled kitchen that has a flower-filled window box above the sink that overlooks a lush wooded area.
The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. A dark wood drop-leaf dining table behind the couch is set up to seat two but can be expanded to accommodate six.
A king bed, which can be converted to two twins, is topped with Memory Foam and appointed with luxury linens and a generous supply of throw pillows. A closet and two Bombay bedside bureaus provide ample storage. The studio can sleep two adults and one adult/child on a roll-away bed with Memory Foam mattress, and another small child on the couch (which is not a sleeper sofa but deep enough).
The spotless white-tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination.
Enjoy cocktails, morning coffee or take your meals at a teak bistro table and chairs for two on a small private wooden deck, accessible through sliding glass doors, that is filled with colorful potted plants. A gas grill is also provided.
A shared washer and dryer are located in a nearby laundry room. This guest studio is adjacent to a larger two-bedroom two-bath cottage on a spacious, beautifully landscaped property with Point Lobos ocean views and deck that is also available for rent.
The Guest Studio is very private and separated from the main house. ** When this Guest House is rented with the main house, special lower rates may apply.

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.
