Welcome to Oceanview Serenity! Home sleeps up to 4 guests including children.

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

Oceanview Serenity has been recently updated and completely furnished with new beds, furniture and decor. We look forward to reading reviews from our first few sets of Guests to stay at this darling beach cottage. Be among the first to enjoy this delightful home!

A charming cottage with a stunning 180-degree view of the Monterey Bay offers the best of all worlds in Pacific Grove — close to the beach, but also an easy walk to downtown Pacific Grove, historic Cannery Row and other attractions.

The 930-square-foot pet-friendly home (one small dog up to 15lbs) is directly across the street from the beach and the Monterey Recreational Trail, and is just a few steps from spectacular Lover’s Point. The restaurants, galleries and shops of downtown Pacific Grove are just a 5-minute walk away, and there is also easy access to Asilomar, 17-Mile Drive, and the highly rated Pacific Grove Golf Links. It’s also a short walk to Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, or 10 minutes by car to downtown Monterey, 10 minutes to shopping in Carmel-by-the-Sea, and 15 minutes to golf and fine dining in Pebble Beach.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath home built in 1934 has been recently painted and redecorated to enhance its vintage charm. A brick pathway leads to the front door, past the adirondack chairs that are a perfect spot to sip morning coffee and drink in views of the bay at any hour of the day.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary wine and cheese, passes to the renowned 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.

Inside the home, a cozy living room and dining room feature large picture windows, taking advantage of the spectacular view, and guests will be able to see boats, birds, and even whales out on the water.

Beach-themed décor in soothing shades of blue, sand and driftwood brings the outdoors inside, harmonizing with the rustic living room that features a vaulted wood ceiling, 65" Ultra HDTV with a connected sound bar and blue ray DVD and a gas burning fireplace. Upholstered chairs and a comfortable sofa provide a place for conversation, reading or playing games, or just sitting and enjoying the bay vistas.

Hardwood floors and board-and-batten walls can be found throughout the home, as well as vintage lighting.

The sunny kitchen is also a pleasant reminder of past eras but enhanced with new appliances, including a gas cook top, wall oven, and dishwasher. The adjacent dining room table that seats six is also next to a large picture window.

The master bedroom features a queen bed and a large closet. A bathroom with combination tub/shower is adjacent to both bedrooms. The second bedroom contains a king bed that can be converted to two twins, as well as an attached bathroom with a shower.

Guests can also enjoy the large fenced backyard, where a gas grill and patio seating are perfect for al fresco dining. The outdoor space is sunny and protected, with views of the bay visible through the home’s picture windows.

At the rear of the house, a one-car garage offers space for parking a vehicle and for stowing beach gear. Additional parking is available on the street.

**There is an additional fee for pets**

Pacific grove - awesome

  • 5 of 5

The location and view couldn't be any better. We sat on the chairs out front everyday. Everything is really comfortable and there is a lot of closet space too. It's an older house but very well maintained. Backyard is an added feature and the washer machine and dryer worked well too! I was happy hanging out at the house and taking walks from there. We took our little senior dog and she loved going across the street and exploring on the paths. Property managers are great! So close to anything you want to do. Walked to town & cannery row. Close to 17mile drive etc.

Five star views. House is well kept and staff is excellent

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 8 days and had a fabulous time. The views from the house are spectacular and all we had to do is cross the street to access the paths along the shore. We saw seals, whales and lots of birds. The flowers were blooming all along the coast.

The house has everything you need,.

We couldn't give it five stars because we have stayed in more modern and roomier houses

The furniture decor is relatively new and attractive, but there were no comfortable places to sit and watch TV.

The beds were very comfortable.

We plan to return.

Great location, charming house

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect, right in front of walking paths along the shore. We watched the seals play and had a whale sighting. Parking was on the street but not a problem. The beds were comfortable and the gas fireplace appreciated on the cool nights. We were very pleased with the house.

Pleasantly Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Loved this quaint little cottage with the unique view. Not only is it directly across the street but the view can be enjoyed from the comfort of the couch, also! Did they happen to mention that a sunrise (which is unusual for the west coast area) can be viewed from bed with the master bedroom door open. How awesome it was!

Everything you've could want to for an enjoyable stay is not left to chance.

Better than advertised, and we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for.

- It's a bit on the small side, but perfect for the 2 couples that shared it on this visit.

-The amenities were as described, we had a bit of trouble with the fireplace but the house manager was willing to come out and look at it (we told her not to worry about it).

And that was the end of our list of "negatives", because the place was exactly as described. It was clean, well-stocked, and perfectly located by the water and Lover's Point Park. Setting up the rental was a breeze, communication with the staff was great, and I can't stress the view enough.

-We were planning to go whale watching and 2 whales appeared about 1/2 mile offshore, well within the range of the binoculars provided with the house. We were able to put off the boat ride for another day!

-Walking distance from both the Aquarium/Cannery Row and the shops and restaurants on Lighthouse Ave. A SHORT drive from everything else.

You get the picture - we were extremely pleased. We look forward to experiencing this house and this staff again.
