Escape to your own little island of tranquility in this 600-square-foot studio guest cottage that perfectly encapsulates Carmel's unique style of casual comfort and urbane sophistication. Situated in a lovely quiet residential area, it is just minutes from stunning white beaches and the many exciting shops and restaurants of downtown Carmel and environs.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately (see #3276 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for more information).

Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, 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, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, oversized towels and beach gear.

Natural sisal and jute rugs over a wide-plank wood floor contribute to the upscale beach motif, with its white, chocolate brown, tan and sea-foam color scheme and bright, upbeat tone. Warm yourself by a cheery wood stove while you play games, read or watch a 46-inch LCD HD TV with dish network service from a cushy white couch with chaise and an ottoman coffee table.

If you choose, you can shop for fresh meats and seafood, fruits and veggies, gourmet cheeses, wines and pastries at nearby purveyors of local delicacies and prepare your own meals in the full-sized fully equipped white-tiled kitchen that has a flower-filled window box above the sink overlooking a lush wooded area. The kitchen is equipped with a gas range, microwave, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. A dark wood drop-leaf dining table behind the couch is set up to seat 2 but can be expanded to accommodate up to 6.

A king bed, which can be converted to 2 twins, is topped with memory foam and appointed with luxury linens and a generous supply of throw pillows. A closet and two Bombay bedside bureaus provide ample storage. The studio can sleep up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children between the main king bed (or two twins) plus a twin roll-away bed with foam mattress and the deep couch.

The spotless white-tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination.

A week of bliss and relaxation in an otherworldly place.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from an amazing, magical stay in the Restful Refuge Guest House in Carmel. It was perfect in every way, so tastefully decorated and furnished. We had such a wonderful time in the Guest House, and in exploring Carmel and Monterrey. From the Guest House, we walked into Carmel and Monterrey everyday, strolling along the beach or visiting Cannery Row. The property was well maintained and extraordinarily clean. Everything worked like a charm. Plus, the Property Manager was exceedingly helpful and friendly. She made us feel right at home. In fact, we felt like we were at home in the Guest House. We would definitely recommend this property to all our friends and family. And at the first opportunity to return to Carmel, the Guest House will definitely be on the top of our list of places to stay. Thank you.

The studio was perfect in many ways. Parking on the street was the only flaw. The peninsula offers so much to do and see. Our weather was out of this world. We will be back many times!

Reviewer Comments:
Everything was made easy and delightful. Great size, convenient, especially since I had my bike with me. Power went out my first night, and none of the flashlights had battery power, and one plumbing issue got resolved immediately. I even got some logs dropped off for the fireplace. Everone so nice - would come again soon!

Location

From the Owner

My husband and I bought our first Sanctuary by the Sea in Carmel in 2006. Our background includes architecture, kitchen & bathroom design, Realtor, Stager ,Former Vermont Innkeeper/Chef. David -Architect-loves to create spaces that nurture and inspire and Annee likes to create places (vacation homes) that nurture and inspire. We created Sanctuary Vacation Rentals to help our friends be able to share their beautiful homes and allow families and friends to come together to experience what we believe is one of the most beautiful places on the planet and have all the comforts of a home away from home. The owners of these homes are very involved and take a lot of joy and pride in opening their home and hearts to fellow travelers. It is our deepest wish that anyone who stays at one of the Sanctuary Vacation Homes feel that this is one of the nicest places they have ever stayed including every one who assists them in the reservation process. Annee Hayden Martin

Activity and Interests

The Monterey Peninsula is unique in its combination of breathtaking natural resources and a multiplicity of cultural and entertainment possibilities. You can find something for every possible taste. For nature lovers, there is the diversity of mountain and sea, for picnicking, surfing, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, beachcombing, bird-watching, kayaking, scuba diving, tidepooling, biking and more. If you want a man-made excitement, we have art galleries galore, excellent fine-art museums, local theater, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, a natural history and a children's museum, a world-class aquarium, and that's just for starters. History buffs will have a field day exploring the adobes of Monterey. There's so much to do that you cannot possibly do it all in one visit, which means you will have to come back.

Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Whale, dolphin & otter watching!
