Description from the manager
Welcome to “Yellow Cottage by the Sea!”
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
This adorable 2-bedroom 1-bath yellow cottage-by-the-sea, complete with rose bushes and a white picket fence, simply radiates charm and stylish comfort. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just blocks from downtown Pacific Grove with all its unique shops, restaurants and coffee houses, and and a few steps more to the walking and bicycle trail that runs for 7 miles along Monterey Bay's rocky shoreline. A municipal golf course is also within walking distance.
Entrance to this 1,200-sq-ft house is through a light-filled enclosed porch with paned windows that reveal distant bay views. You'll instantly feel at home in the cozy living room with its ceiling criss-crossed with beams, wooden floors and Carmel stone gas-burning fireplace. A color scheme of deep blues, driftwood and other earthen tones reflect the cottage's proximity to the sea, as does the ocean-themed art and accents. A beige queen sofa bed and loveseat provide comfortable seating for conversation or watching your favorite shows or movies on the flat-screen TV with DVD player.
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.
Meal preparation will be easy and fun in the updated fully equipped kitchen, which has handsome driftwood colored countertops, a gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. There is a large colorful poster featuring a hundred different types of butterflies including the Monarch, which makes a seasonal home in a grove of trees just a few blocks away.
A separate dining room has an oak bureau and a round oak table that expands to seat 6. An old-fashioned built-in glass-fronted cabinet displays a variety of attractive dish and glassware for entertaining family and friends with flair.
Enjoy a glass of wine at small tables for two in the enclosed front or back porch. A fenced-in backyard includes a concrete patio and a neatly trimmed grassy area bordered by hydrangea, potato vine and other flowering shrubs. A gas grill, a wooden bench and a table and chairs for four are provided for cooking and dining outdoors.
The master bedroom, with trademark cottage-style white board-and-batten walls and shell art, has a white dresser and bedside tables and a king bed fitted with crisp white luxury linens, Navy blue duvet cover and nautical pillows. The king can be converted to two twins, if desired.
A second bedroom, also adorned with shell art, features a handsome dark wood antique queen bed with a sea-foam green, driftwood and tan duvet cover, taupe coverlet and coordinating euro pillows. Matching nightstands and dresser complete the picture.
A bright sunny bathroom with white wainscoting and summery yellow walls has a free-standing tub with a surround shower curtain in sea colors, a pedestal sink, white tiles and tropical fish art. Spa products and battery operated candles are provided to enhance a deep relaxing bath.
A washer and dryer are located in a garage that is accessible through the back yard. The garage also holds everything you need for an outing to the beach, including chairs, umbrella, cooler and towels. The garage is not used for parking; there is easy street parking directly in front of the house for 2-3 cars.
You will undoubtedly fall in love with this cheery house and soon feel like it is your very own beach cottage.

We celebrated my 50th birthday in the Yellow Cottage over my daughter's spring break. We brought bikes and kayaks, enjoying all this beautiful area has to offer. Our favorites were kayaking around the public wharf in Monterey to see the Sea Lions, biking 17 mile drive, happy hour at the Intercontinental Hotel, lunch at the Red House Cafe and dinner at Passionfish. We love the Yellow Cottage! It is so comfortable. We loved how beautifully it was decorated. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

This cozy cottage has everything you need to feel right at home. The home is clean and bright, with comfortable furniture and beds. There are robes in the bedrooms and a basketful of slippers in the mudroom to wear around the house. The kitchen has a gas stove and all the cooking utensils and pots & pans that you need. Location is great! Close to town and to the ocean. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights with our toddler and we loved it! Wine and cheese were waiting for us when we arrived and the house was immaculate. We loved spending time out in the little yard and walking around the cute & quiet neighborhood. We spent some time in Pacific Grove (Caledonia Playground, Lover's Point Beach) and it was a quick drive to Monterey and the aquarium. We had a great family vacation!

We had a wonderful stay in this charming cottage. We were so comfortable we could scarcely tear ourselves away to go sightseeing and shopping. Every amenity was provided and the location was very peaceful and other than the soft cooing of a dove, very quiet. We especially enjoyed the decor which was reminiscent of our stays on Cape Cod.
