Overview

Northwest Carmel House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Welcome to “Seahorse Sanctuary!” Sleeps up to 8 adults and 4 children age 12 or under.

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

Envision upscale Ralph Lauren elegance blended with more casual Pottery Barn livability and you get a feel for this spacious 3-story Carmel home offering the perfect setting for multi-generational family gatherings or couples traveling together. With 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, this lovely 2398 square feet dwelling - located in a beautiful residential neighborhood within walking distance of Carmel and just blocks from the ocean - can comfortably accommodate a large family.

A short flight of stairs through a shade garden, beneath an oak and a towering pine, leads to a Carmel stone walkway and a few more steps up to a porch that extends the length of the second story. Enter into a small foyer that opens immediately to a tastefully decorated great room.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complementary wine and cheese, 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, spa robes and beach gear.

Sumptuous yet comfortable, the great room, with its hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters and limestone gas fireplace, is the perfect setting for entertaining and gathering loved ones together for delicious meals and lively conversation. A rich palette of crimson, mustard and other fall colors are used in the handsome traditional furnishings that include a chocolate-colored sectional sofa.

Any professional chef would covet the gorgeous kitchen, with its large rectangular central island with 4 stools, amber-hued granite counter tops and Thomasville wooden cabinetry. Everything needed for preparing gourmet meals, including a stainless steel countertop gas range, double oven, side-by-side refrigerator and beautiful dishware and table linens, is provided. An expandable mahogany wooden dining table can seat 8. Get-togethers can also spill out to an enclosed flower-filled deck with table and chairs for 6, an umbrella and lounge chairs. A path from the deck leads to a small fenced back yard. Well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Just off the great room is a den stocked with books and a sleeper sofa that can sleep 2 children. French doors behind a Shoji screen lead to the deck.

The house has 2 master suites - one on the third and one on the main floor. Both have king beds with luxury linens including comforters with duvets, throws and decorative pillows, gas fireplaces, wall-to-wall carpeting, walk-in closets, Shoji screens on the windows, flat-screen TVs and views out over rooftops to pine and oak trees in a nearby undeveloped canyon.

The third-story master has a desk for a computer, a reading chair and a wall of cabinets. The third-story master bath, which features beautiful Thomasville cabinetry and sand-colored tiling, features a soaking tub with jets.

The main floor master, has French doors that open to the deck, features a white four-poster bed with a chocolate and rust paisley duvet, white end tables and vanity and an upholstered bench. The second story master bathroom is similar to the one on the third story but with a large shower.

The ground level offers 2 bedrooms that would be great hide-a-ways for kids. One has a king with memory foam topper that can be converted to 2 twins, and the second has a cream-colored trundle bed perfect for 2 children or 1 adult. A bathroom includes a tub/shower, a separate water closet and a laundry room with washer/dryer.

Park 2 cars in a double-car garage, which has space for bicycles; 2 cars can park in the driveway.

Active Family Fun in Carmel

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a month at Seahorse and had a wonderful time. It is the 2nd year that we have rented this home and it is perfect for an active family whose friends and family come and go. Having essentially three master suites is quite a luxury and very helpful with guests. The kitchen/family room space is beautifully set-up for family dinners or entertaining. The best part is the location, which allows for easy walks to the beach and into town for shopping and dinners. The only thing I missed was access to sunshine. The house is situated in the midst of beautiful trees and there is a nice deck but never much sunshine. Three cheers for the property manager who responded to all our requests!

Reviewer Comments:

This was an excellent rental. From the moment we arrived to the time we left a month later, we enjoyed every minute. It is obvious that the owner wanted this to be a good experience for us. The property is well appointed which made staying there easy and comfortable. I am always concerned that the rental is somewhat less then advertised - not the case here. The home is roomy,has two master suites with extremely comfortable king size beds. Appliances are high-end, the kitchen has everything you need to entertain guest. The property is spacious. ,this is truely and excellent place and would rent it again and again. Also the Santuary staff - especially Tracy C. was particularly attentive and helpful throughout our stay. It is a '5 Star' rental.

This house truly suited our needs. Very hard to find two master bedroom suites with room enough for the rest of the family. Absolutely loved it here! Beautiful property. Can't say enough good things about Sanctuary Vacation Rentals. Even if this property does not meet your needs, find one that they manage. We travel a lot and they are the most professional management group that we have dealt with.

Reviewer Comments:

OK, so here is why you should seriously consider renting a property in Carmel from Sanctuary:

1. Incredibly responsive and professional

2. Spotlessness

3. Reasonable and fair, and not hung up on stuff that happens in life in one of their homes.

This particular rental was our 2nd in Carmel from Sanctuary, and the experience was very consistent from one property to the next.

The place feels like yours after you are in it for 5 minutes, and you have put your stuff in the drawers. Casanova is in a great location for walkers, whether to the beach or the local restaurants! Perfect.

Property management resolved issues on arrival. The entertainment universal remote was difficult. We enjoyed the property with our family using all beds and den. When our friends visited they were treated to the luxury MBR on the main level. All enjoyed

Delightful, elegant home, close to Ocean Avenue

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home for the month of March. It was a relaxing and comfortable house with every amenity you might imagine. During the month our children and relatives rotated through and everyone had a bedroom and bath. It was a nice place to entertain or to be by ourselves to enjoy Carmel. We especially liked the location that allowed for easy walks to the beach or to Ocean Avenue to browse or visit the fabulous restaurants. Very helpful to have the garage space since the driveway is awkward. My sincere compliments to the owners. Can't wait to come again.
