Experience breathtaking bay views high above the rooftops in this 600 sf 1 bedroom, 1 bath penthouse overlooking Cannery Row in Monterey. This retreat, perfect for a romantic getaway, working executive or friends traveling together, offers the perfect balance between relaxing in nature’s splendor and the excitement of a world-renown tourist destination in this memorable penthouse.
Add to this a spacious deck where you can sit around a square table for 4 in the glow of a table top fire-pit, enjoy the sunset, dine on an elegant meal, then drink in the magic of the twinkling lights of Monterey Bay Harbor and the canopy of stars overhead.
Park your car in an enclosed, shared garage, then climb a short flight of steps to your vacation aerie. Stop at the entrance and enjoy the splendor of the vista before stepping into a spacious open area that includes the living room, dining area and the kitchen. Windows on three sides let in the spectacular coastal light and a sweeping 180° view over trees and rooftops to the blue waters of Monterey Bay. A nautical theme prevails, complemented by a crisp white, gray and ocean-blue color scheme.
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.
Whether you want to sample the shops, restaurants, nightlife and other attractions of Cannery Row, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium or head to the beach, it’s all only a short 4 blocks away. Lighthouse Avenue, a main thoroughfare with a unique collection of ethnic restaurants and other amenities, is only 1 block away. Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach and Carmel are just a short drive away.
Furnishings include a comfortable blue and white striped queen-sized sleeper sofa that sleeps 1 or 2 children, a cushy tan easy chair, white wood coffee and end tables. A telescope is provided for viewing of activities on the bay. Watch your favorite movies on a 42” flat-screen TV above a marble-faced gas fireplace. This penthouse is equipped with the latest in electronic equipment: wireless, a printer/fax/copier, audio file home theater, CD and DVD player with 5-speaker surround system.
Prepare gourmet meals in the chef’s dream kitchen, with its white cabinetry, black granite counter-tops, slate floor, gas range, stainless steel refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. It is fully equipped with everything you could wish for in cookware, dishes, glassware, tabletop linens and accessories. Serve meals inside at an expanding wood table for 2-4 positioned to take full advantage of the views or outdoors on the side deck, which includes an umbrella and gas grill. You can also enjoy morning coffee and scones at a bistro table and chairs for 2 on a narrow front deck near the entry of the penthouse.
The bedroom, with a sophisticated palette, has a queen with a carved antiqued-white wood headboard fitted with luxury linens. A dark wood antique dresser and bedside table, and a corner display cabinet with ocean themed objets d’art complete the picture.
The bathroom includes a shower over the deep soaking tub with jets, black granite counter-tops and sand-colored tiles on the floor and around the tub.

"Whale watching from 'inside' the Penthouse became our favorite activity! Or was eating under the stars beside the fire table while gazing at the lights across the bay? Both were spectacular!! Our month long stay in the Penthouse was a dream-come-true
Best place to stay in Monterey!! Comfy bed & couch! The unit was sparkling clean and the property manager attentive and friendly. Fantastic location with fabulous views and we walked in all directions throughout our stay - we will return!
