There are five of us that retired about the same time some 10 years ago. We travel all over and this time it was to Pacific Grove and your beautiful house, Jewel by the Sea. The house was wonderful and the location was great. Nice places right down the street for us to walk to for breakfast and dinner, beautifully drives down the coast to Big Sur, and lots more to keep us busy. I'm sure we will be back in the future. Thanks to all of you for a great trip.
This house is great! We booked Jewel By the Sea along with another of Sanctuary's rentals one street over for mine and my husband's intimate wedding week with our families. My husband and I stayed at Jewel by the Sea with his family while my parents and siblings stayed at the other house. We booked 5 nights in this house with 6 adults and 2 children. My husband and I stayed in the Master Suite which is AMAZING! There was plenty of room for all of our wedding stuff and space to finish up all my last minute wedding projects. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was great! The room is also very quiet. I'm a very light sleeper and was nervous about being able to hear everything in the house if other people woke up early (especially the kids) but I had no trouble at all sleeping and you really couldn't hear anything with the bedroom door shut. It's also nice that at the top of the stairs there's a sliding french door you can close to block out any noise from people who may still be awake downstairs. I also love that there was a patio off the room, great for morning coffee! The Master Suite was also perfect as a Bridal Suite as I got ready for my big day! There was plenty of room for my make-up artist and photographer as well as for my sisters to get ready with me.
The rest of the house was really spacious and clean. The room next to the master suite was perfect for my brother-in-law and his wife who have 2 little kids so they loved the bunk beds and window seats in the room.
The kitchen has everything you need and the coffee maker was a big hit with all us coffee lovers! The welcome wine and cheese was also a nice touch by Sanctuary.
Overall, this house is perfect for a family get-away! Lots of room for everyone and all the amenities you need! We loved the proximity to restaurants and coffee shops as well as being within walking distance to the beach path.
The Sanctuary staff was also great to work with. They are very prompt to respond to any questions or concerns you may have.
We will definitely be back!
What a beautiful house! The house was cozy, inviting and great spot to mingle with family. Amenities were right on! We had plenty of soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc.
We loved the short walking distance to ice cream shop, beach and shops (even though it was a bit chilly). We felt very safe. We went to the Monterey Aquarium and a few restaurants in that area. All excellent choices.
We loved our visit to Pacific Grove (nephew's wedding in nearby Carmel/Monterey). We hope we can visit again!
Impressive, comfortable and clean. Appreciated the attention to details in this beautiful vacation home, gorgeous bedrooms and bathrooms. Comfortable family room and outside deck to past the time away. Easy breezy check in/ check out, competent property management. Super location close to downtown Pacific Grove and easy walk to the awesome coastline. Enjoyed some amazing pastries at Pavel's and some heavenly clam chowder at Vivolo's Chowder House. Great place to stay and relax the days away!
This house is beautifully and comfortably designed. It feels more like being in someone's home than a rental because there are so many personal touches. Appliances, electronics, beds, bathrooms were all high end and fully equipped. Our multigenerational family thoroughly enjoyed having plenty of room to spread out and the 10 person dining table accommodated us perfectly. Best of all, we could leave our cars and walk almost anywhere. I would recommend this to anyone and hope we will be able to return in the future ourselves.
This beautiful home is in a quiet neighbor that is a 30 minute walk to fisherman's wharf in Monterey. That seems a long way, but you walk by great antique shops, beautifully restored cottages painted in sweet Victorian colors, then along the coast watching sea otters, sea lions, the tin factory outlet shopping, the aquarium, then the bounty of fisherman's wharf! Something for everyone. The photos on the website are true. The house is beautiful and solid, a bit kitschy, but fully equipped. The weakness is that there are so many high end appliances you need instruction manuals. We never did get the tv to work and couldn't watch the movies we wanted to share in the evening.
Activities we did: 17 mile drive past the lone cypress, kayaking on Monterey Bay (that was a great adventure!), Big Sur is about an hour drive down a gorgeous stretch of route 1, the purple sand Peiffer Beach, scones and a hippy headdress at the Big Sur Bakery, Calla Lily gorge near Garrapata bridge, lunch at Rocky Point Restaurant, sunset on Carmel Beach, wine tasting at Taste of Monterey, dinner at Schooners, clam chowder in a bread bowl at Fish Hopper.
The management was responsive and friendly. We highly recommend this rental for a Route 1 stop off.
