vacation rental description

*****PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO ISSUES IN THE HOMEAWAY/VRBO SOFTWARE PROGRAMS, THE RATES QUOTED IN THE 'INSTANT QUOTE' BOX ARE USUALLY WRONG! FOR CORRECT RATE INFORMATION, CLICK ON THE 'RATES' TAB/BUTTON EITHER ABOVE OR BELOW THE MAIN PHOTO*****

Welcome to 'Restful Refuge Guest House'!

** When this Guest House is rented with the main house, rent is $150 per night plus cleaning and tax; otherwise normal rates apply. (Generally more for holidays & special events)

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. A two-bedroom, two-bath main house is also available for rent together with the guest studio or separately.

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 has recently undergone 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, embroidered spa bathrobes, slippers and over sized 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 and chaise with 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 that overlooks 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 two but can be expanded to accommodate six.

A king bed, which can be converted to two 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 two adults and one adult/child on a roll-away bed with Memory Foam mattress, and another small child on the couch (which is not a sleeper sofa but deep enough).

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

Enjoy cocktails, morning coffee or take your meals at a teak bistro table and chairs for two on a small private wooden deck, accessible through sliding glass doors, that is filled with colorful potted plants. A gas grill is also provided.

A shared washer and dryer are located in a nearby laundry room. This guest studio is adjacent to a larger two-bedroom two-bath cottage on a spacious, beautifully landscaped property with Point Lobos ocean views and deck that is also available for rent.

The Guest Studio is very private and separated from the main house. ** When this Guest House is rented with the main house, special lower rates may apply.

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

Best place to stay in Carmel !

Review submitted: September 18, 2013   Date of arrival: September 7, 2013

The staff at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is wonderful. They are friendly and make sure you are happy. The guest house is perfect for someone looking for a small but beautiful place to stay and a short drive to the beach. The decorating is so soothing and the place is full of light. I am so very thankful that Charlie, my dog, and I are welcomed there and the neighborhood is perfect for a nice quiet walk. I hope to make it next year too! This was my second year and loved it!

Disppointing experience

Review submitted: September 16, 2013   Date of arrival: August 13, 2013

We rented the refuge advised it was sufficient for a couple with children (vs. the main house). Actually, the value of the refuge is poor vs. the house ! -2 bedrooms + livingroom in the house vs. a single room for the refuge (kitchen, livingroom and bedroom alltogether) - a beautiful sundeck with ocean view in the house vs. a poor shadowy garden for the refuge And only a mere 20% price difference !!!! the refuge is far too expensive !

Owners response: We thank this Guest for taking the time to comment on their stay. We are sorry that the stay did not meet their expectations due to the small size of the accommodations that they chose.
At the time of the initial contact, both the 2 bedroom, 2 bath main house and this generously appointed studio guest house were offered to this Guest. He chose the studio guest house of his own accord, stating that they were 'used to small spaces, being from Europe'.
As long as the total occupancy is within our recommended maximum, we do not typically decline a Guest's request, we can only helpfully recommend the space that we feel will accommodate them the best.
The Restful Refuge Guest House has a California king size bed, a large sofa and a twin rollaway, which would allow for sleeping for 2 adults and 2 small children (at a maximum) depending upon the needs and desires of each family.
We strongly recommend this space for couples seeking a quiet getaway, though
because the California king can also be made up as two twins upon request, it can also suit singles quite well. Many families have enjoyed renting both the main house and the guest house. These are versatile spaces.
We invite any prospective Guests to review the homes on our website (these include myriad photos, videos and detailed text descriptions of each home) and/or to call our friendly, knowledgeable Reservationists to help them choose a home that will suit them well during a short or long stay in our area.
Wishing you all happy travels!

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!
