Welcome to 'Restful Refuge'!

Lovely Carmel Home with Distant Ocean View! Plus Optional Guest House! Huge ocean view deck with gas BBQ, dining for 5, surrounded by beautiful gardens and historic trees!

Imagine yourself lounging on a spacious wooden deck watching a luminous sunset on the horizon over the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific and you get a foretaste of what to expect from this utterly charming 1,200-square-foot home and 600-square-foot guest cottage in a lovely quiet Carmel neighborhood.

Bright and cheerful with a wood fireplace and hardwood floors throughout, this two-bedroom two-bath main house, which sleeps 5, is surrounded by lush gardens on a large enclosed property.

A delightful studio cottage that sleeps 2-3 can be rented together with the main house or separately.

The ocean and Point Lobos are visible from the living room and master bedroom of the main house. The upbeat Pottery Barn beach décor, with its white, chocolate and robin’s-egg-blue color scheme and seashore-themed accents, will lift your spirits, making you eager to return to your home base after exploring the surrounding sights.

Everything you will want to see and do is nearby. It is a short walk to Carmel River Beach (a locals’ favorite) and the Carmel Mission and minutes by car to the shops and galleries of downtown Carmel and the chic Crossroads and Barnyard shopping areas at the mouth of Carmel Valley. Monterey and Pacific Grove are a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur is half an hour away.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complementary hors d’oeuvres and wine, spa 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 oversized towels, and beach gear.

The outdoors is as much a draw as the indoors at this unique old-style Carmel home. Beauty abounds everywhere you look on the grounds with its stately Cypresses and sturdy oaks bordering the perimeter, a gorgeous plot of rose bushes at the entrance, and lush native plants throughout the interior garden with its graveled paths and three-tiered fountain.

A spectacular expansive private deck off the living room and master bedroom is equipped with three teak lounge chairs and a teak outdoor table that expands to seat eight with tan shade umbrella for enjoying evening cocktails or al fresco meals. A grape-stake fence surrounding the property provides privacy.

You pass a small white old-fashioned wood stove as you enter the front door and walk into the cozy combined living/dining room with its garden and ocean views. French doors open out to the deck. When you’re not mesmerized by the vista, you can play cards, watch the 46-inch flat-screen LCD - HDTV with Blue-Ray DVD or socialize in the cheery space, which includes a plush full size sofabed facing a whitewashed-brick wood-burning fireplace, an overstuffed chair, a library table and a round glass table with upholstered chairs that seat four. A library of inspirational books and magazines is also provided.

An immaculate fully equipped kitchen with oak cabinetry has a gas stove, side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. You can grab a light breakfast before heading out on your day’s adventures at a small breakfast bar with two stools.

Wake in the morning after a tranquil night’s sleep to ocean views from the master bedroom, which features a queen bed with a top-quality mattress fitted with luxurious linens and built-in shelving. Complete privacy allows you to throw open the French doors, step out onto the deck and breathe in the fresh sea air even before you dress. Adjacent is a spotless full bath with combination tub/shower completely tiled in white.

A second cheerful bedroom that overlooks a rose garden can be made up as two twins or a king with a Memory Foam topper and is also fitted with luxury linens. A full bathroom down a short hall off the living room has a tub/shower and counter top that are tiled in cloudy blue.

A laundry room with outside access has a washer and dryer. Parking is available in a carport with additional parking on the street. If you are only renting the main house please note that the Guest House is separate and has its own private entrance and yard. If you are traveling with 2 or more couples you may wish to consider renting the Guest Studio along with the main house as it can be used as an elegant Spacious Master Suite. (For Guest House see HomeAway #382224 or VRBO #345630)

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

Great place

Review submitted: October 12, 2013   Date of arrival: September 15, 2013

This was a getaway trip for a some R&R and some fun too.
I rented this place sight unseen based on what I saw on the website. The house turned out to be more than I expected. Very comfy and has a great energy. It is clean and very well maintained with a fantastic yard and deck with an ocean view. The neighborhood is so peaceful, I was happy just hanging at the house.
I felt so comfortable here I was ready to move in! I will definitely return.

Great stay and great service!

Review submitted: August 28, 2013   Date of arrival: July 30, 2013

My new bride and I very much enjoyed our recent stay for our wedding with Sanctuary at this very cosy and beautiful home and attached guest studio (we took both for our stay).

We had a very pleasant stay and felt that the studio and house were well-equipped, nicely decorated, clean and convenient to the main strip of Carmel-by-the-Sea (5 minutes away) and with easy access to Big Sur. The terrace was beautiful as well, with a view to the coast.

We wanted to specifically highlight the exceptional service that Marietta, the property manager, provided us during and particularly after our stay. After the pleasant stay, we had checked out of the house and driven halfway to another appointment in San Francisco by the time we realized we had left the top of our wedding cake in the freezer back in the house. This distressed us very much as we couldn't turn back around due to our appointment.

We managed to reach Marietta, and, to put it succinctly, within a few hours, she went above and beyond any expectations to help us out. She helped us carry the cake top up with her the next day to San Francisco, infringing on her planned day with her daughter, and made sure it got to a friend of ours in the city.

This was an outcome we couldn't have even wished for and we can't say how much we appreciated her effort and service. This level of service is rare nowadays and makes our decision to recommend the property even easier to make. We will never forget what Marietta did!

What a fabulous treat !

Review submitted: July 24, 2013   Date of arrival: June 14, 2013

Beautiful house decor, great neighborhood, the beach, the weather....
We sincerely enjoyed our time here at 26200 Mesa Drive, and the attention to service was greatly appreciated. We plan to return in 2014. This house in Carmel is a perfect location foe day trips. Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel Valley and just 2 hours from San Francisco. Be sure to have dinner at porch garden or drive to LouLou Griddle in the middle in Monterey Bay.
