Beautiful home, perfect location
What a beautiful home! We were greeted with wine & cheese and passes to wine tasting & a day spa. Everything was exactly how it was described online. Loved sitting out on the deck upstairs drinking my morning coffee. The kitchen was nice and big and was able to have the entire group sit together for dinner. The same with the living room. Loved it! Can't wait to go back next year!
Thank you for the wonderful review of our home, Jewel by the Sea. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time and hope to see you next year for the Big Sur Marathon!
Nice home & location, but poorly managed...
Jewel By the Sea was a very nice cottage, but we had a few issues during our stay that were not handled efficiently by the management company, Sanctuary Vacation Rentals. I had some basic questions prior to arrival that I had to email a couple times in order to get a response. During our stay the lack of communication continued - I had two "concierge" property managers but my emails bounced around and I got out of office replies and no answers, despite cc'ing both managers and the office. I eventually did get responses, but they were not timely nor very helpful. The 1st night of our stay the oven did not work, and the gas stovetop was usable, but not functioning properly. The 2nd day of our stay we realized the freezer also wasn't working. We were a group of 7 and trying to cook most meals at home, so this was a challenge. The stovetop was fixed after a couple emails, and we fixed the oven ourselves by googling the instructions after not getting a response from the manager (turns out this brand of oven literally won't work if the clock isn't set - it's not intuitive at all). The freezer was eventually fixed towards the end our stay, and the manager gave us a small refund, though I would have been happier if they had simply been more responsive.
We could only operate one of the the 3 heated bathroom floors. The Nest thermostat was preprogrammed to drop the heat in the afternoons and overnight.
Home was clean, though the carpets were stained and some basics were missing such as washcloths & extra items in the kitchen.
Beds were adequate, though without headboards or comfortable mattress toppers I've usually had at higher end homes.
The location is great (aside from the neighbors displays of signs against short term rentals) - within walking distance to many restaurants, a playground, and the beach. The layout of the house is nice - it has great curb appeal.
This could definitely be a 5 star property with a few tweaks of the amenities and a better management company. I can tell the home is well loved and it has some great features, so I was disappointed we had some hiccups during our stay that weren't easily resolved. Turns out the Guest Relations Manager was out of town during our stay, so hopefully next time he's on spring break (as we were) the guests will be left in better hands.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
We loved our stay. It was a family vacation and we were all very pleased with the home. It was great to have a bedroom downstairs for my mom. We loved the large dining table. It was wonderful to have our meals together. We visited the aquarium, cannery row, the beach and went bike riding. The only negative comment I can make , is although the kitchen, was state of the art, the appliances were hard to work with. The property managers were very responsive to our needs.
the beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked in this newly remodeled home.
We had 3 families that shared the home comfortably.
We stayed in this house for 5 nights and it was perfect. Both check in and check out are very streamlined and made to help the guests be independent. The house book and appliances instructions were easy to find and well organized. Lots of great info. The house itself is beautiful, very tastefully decorated, just like in the photos. The appliances are very high end (think Miele and Subzero) and the kitchen well equipped and practical.
The house manager, Pravinesh, was very responsive and helpful. He helped us get two-days passes to the aquarium, for the price of one day. Our kids (5 and 8 years old) and us enjoyed the aquarium very much. We walked there from the house, along the coast. The house is very conveniently located, a short drive to Carmel, 17mile drive, point lobos state reserve and many other local attractions. The house is also ideal for larger groups, as there are 4 bedrooms, one of them being a great kids room, with window benches and bunk beds. Everybody can have their privacy while sharing very nicely laid out common spaces.
Thank you for your wonderful review of our home, Jewel by the Sea! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found the service of your House Manager to be responsive and helpful.
Very clean and comfortable!
Wow! This was a great home. Very clean and comfortable with plenty of room for our large group.
