Retreat to a gentler, slower-paced era in this delightful tree-shrouded quintessential Carmel-by-the-Sea board-and-batten cottage. Evoking the spirit of the village of Carmel's original founding artist colony, this clean, airy two-bedroom cottage, located in a quiet neighborhood only blocks from the downtown, blends seashore-themed originality and whimsy with comfort and good taste.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary hors d'oeuvres and a bottle of sparkling cider, passes from the famous Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey that recently underwent a $2 million renovation, Scheid Wine passes and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is at your disposal to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers and over-sized towels, and beach gear.

Relax with a good book, and warm body and soul in front of a wood-burning brick fireplace in a cozy living room that features comfy furnishings, a vaulted ceiling with skylights, wooden floors topped with plush rugs and paned windows looking out to a fenced-in patio dotted with pots brimming with colorful flowers and native plants. Crisp beach tones of tan, white and robins-egg blue reminds you that the Pacific Ocean is just a stone's throw away and you most assuredly are on vacation.

Picture convivial meals with friends and loved ones around a rectangular French country oak table that can seat up to 10 in a dining area that overlooks the patio. Adjacent is a fully-equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, gas stove, dish washer, microwave and side-by-side refrigerator.

Take your morning coffee and croissant, put on your walking shoes and stroll into the village of Carmel to explore the myriad shops, galleries and world-class restaurants. If you're feeling ambitious, you can even continue all the way down Ocean Avenue to its ending at the pristine white beaches and sparkling azure waves that have enticed countless visitors from around the world to kick off their shoes and stroll along the water's edge. If you plan ahead, you can stop at Bruno's Market, a Carmel trademark, en route and pick up some wine, cheese, bread and fresh fruit for a casual picnic.

The larger master bedroom, with its plush warm carpeting and luxury-hotel-quality linens, features a white California king bed with Memory Foam topper that can be converted to two twins if desired. Colors are robin's-egg blue and sage green.

The second smaller bedroom has hardwood flooring topped with an area rug and a queen wicker bed. Additional sleeping arrangements are provided by a comfortable futon/chaise and a white deep sofa in the living room, offering total sleeping accommodations for up to five adults or four adults and one child. The bathroom, with its new granite counter top, is tiled throughout, including whimsical tiles of fish adorning the combination bath/shower.

Pets are welcome in this secure property, which is completely enclosed by a grape-stake fence. You can walk your dog in a charming vest-pocket park just around the corner. The paved driveway is long enough to accommodate a recreational vehicle; there is plenty of street parking as well. Evening cocktails can be enjoyed at a bistro table in the front patio. A grill is provided for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Outdoor access to washer and dryer.

A beautiful designers one-bedroom guest beach cottage behind the main house can also be rented to provide additional accommodations. (See HomeAway #375928 or VRBO #345625)

30 night minimum per city of Carmel. Call to inquire. Additional rate details and terms may be seen on our website at www.sanctuaryvacationrentals.com, or feel free to contact one of our friendly, knowledgeable reservationists to receive a full quote via email.

traveler reviews for this carmel-by-the-sea cottage rental

Relaxing stay in Carmel

Review submitted: October 7, 2011   Date of arrival: September 26, 2011

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing week in Carmel at the Torres cottage. It was so peaceful and within walking distance of downtown. The cottage is well appointed as Annie has added all the little touches. It was like being at home. This cottage is quaint and private with a fence surrounding the property. I was able to park my car inside the property which I liked. We used the Aquarium passes which was a savings. We really had a nice time there and will stay there again.

Charming, Pet Friendly Paradise

Review submitted: September 22, 2011   Date of arrival: September 10, 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful stay from the moment of our arrival. The cottage is clean, well cared for and the garden is inviting. We loved the proximity to town and the beach coupled with the quiet of not being too close. The cottage is well-equiped, bright and cheerful. We travel to Carmel at least twice a year and finally, after a 20+ year search, we have found the perfect place. We found it to be a great value. It's not cheap, but we certainly felt we got more than our money's worth of comfort and enjoyment.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Extraordinary Beach Cottage

Review submitted: August 19, 2011   Date of arrival: July 14, 2011

The Beach Cottage has superb designer touches to be cherished, you felt so welcomed as if you were trading homes with dear friends, all four of us treasured our time and our dog was welcome as well! We definitely will be back. The location is close to everything and the Aquarium passes were perfect for quick entry. Carmel Beach is fabulous and close, there is a washer and dryer and the patio is large and enclosed for privacy. It was the perfect vacation anytime of the year! Our tweens thought it was perfect as well. There is a tv, cd player, areas to read in comfort, a fabulous kitchen with all that you could need for dining, and the fluffiest towels ever! The garden is gorgeous and large windows to view it! Our dog enjoyed it as well since the very large patio was enclosed he could lie outside comfortably and there are so many dog friendly restaurants. The house felt open and you truly wanted to spend time there when you weren't at the beach! It is a perfect getaway for a family or a couple.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway
