Welcome to Nautilus! Beach house sleeps up to 6 adults and 1 child age 12 or under.

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

The best views in Pacific Grove can be seen from the top of this New England-style weathered gray cottage, with expansive vistas of the Monterey Bay that stretch from Lover’s Point all the way to Santa Cruz. The 1400 square feet, 3-bedroom, 3-bath home is just steps away from the beach and easy walking distance from Pacific Grove’s galleries, boutiques and restaurants.

Each bedroom is on a different floor in this split-level home, a great way to allow personal space for family members or couples. Climb to the upper floor, and enjoy outdoor seating areas and sweeping views from a small captain’s walk on top of the roof allowing for views of whales and ships on Monterey Bay.

This pet-friendly residence includes modern nautical décor in soothing shades of blue, driftwood gray, sand and white; a spacious garage offers one space for parking as well as storage of beach items. A second car may park in the driveway and a third directly in front of the house. In addition to its close proximity to downtown Pacific Grove, it’s also just a 5-minute car ride from the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, 15 minutes to charming Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 20 minutes to Carmel Valley wineries and restaurants.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary 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.

The front door opens into a great room that includes the living room, kitchen and dining room, perfect for gathering everyone together for meals or conversation, with hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen features updated stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner gas range and a convection oven, black Corian countertops and two sinks for easy meal preparation. A capiz shell chandelier is the focal point of the dining room area, which includes a table that seats eight as well as counter seating for two at the kitchen island.

The living room has a cozy sectional sofa surrounding the gas fireplace and 50-inch HDTV, as well as a window daybed in the living room that can be used as an additional sleeping area for 1 child or seating with ocean views.

Also on this floor is a bedroom with a day bed for a single sleeper or it can convert to one king with foam topper. A bathroom with a combined tub/shower is nearby. Stacking washer and dryer laundry area is tucked inside the bathroom. A small office with desk is located off the kitchen.

Downstairs, guests will find a larger bedroom with two twin beds that convert to a king, along with a reading nook with an en suite bath, which includes a shower with custom tile work and plenty of vanity space near the sink. French doors lead to a small outdoor area that includes a patio with bistro seating.

The master suite on the top level has a double-sided gas fireplace as well as sunset views through its windows, and a small balcony with bistro seating where morning coffee or an evening drink can be savored. The bedroom includes a king bed that converts to two twins, a 42-inch HDTV, and hardwood floors. The bath includes a custom sink set into a marble vanity, a shaving mirror, and shower, and the dressing area also includes a bonus sink with plenty of storage and counter space.

Amazing location and amenities !

  • 5 of 5

The description of home was extremely accurate and photos true to the beauty of seeing Pacific Grove. Our group of six who arrived to run Big Sur felt very fortunate to arrive to such a beautiful and cozy home. We found the living room, kitchen and bedrooms perfect for our visit. We benefited from amazing weather, amazing sea side views, morning coffee on the upstairs deck and proximity to town down, cafes, shops and the Sea side.

The staff responded in a quick manner to telephone inquiries and this was much appreciated.

This rental option is spoken of highly and we would recommend anyone going to Monterey and Pacific Grove to consider this option!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, great view. We stayed with our two daughters (ages 13 and 16) and we all loved it! Very nice and clean inside the home with the extras (beach chairs, beach towels, etc) that were helpful to have.

Place is nice but need better cleaning

  • 3 of 5

The home was very nice but could do a better cleaning. The floors had dogs hair and food crumbs on the flood. The toilets was not clean and 3rd flood beds could use a new one. For the amount being charged for cleaning fee you would expect the house to be clean.

Perfect location in Pacific Grove

  • 5 of 5

This home was in the perfect location for connecting to everything! It was a block and a half from the ocean, a nice five block stroll down Lighthouse Avenue to shops and breakfast in Historic downtown Oacific Grove (which we did often) and about a 5 block walk to Cannery Row! The home itself was so ready for us and made our arrival completely seamless! We pulled in the driveway, got the key from the lockbox and walked in to a great bottle of wine! The home was very open and great for socializing. Bedrooms were spacious and we were thrilled with sitting out on the roof-top perch for all six if us, drinking wine and watching the ocean! Really enjoyed that the house was so completely stocked with everything we needed! So happy with this experience!
