**For more details about this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
This spacious 3-story home has been completely remodeled with great attention to detail and is the perfect getaway for couples, families, reunions and friends vacationing together. It is located in the charming seaside community of Pacific Grove -- known as "Butterfly Town USA" because it is a stop in the migration of the Monarch Butterfly. It is also called "America's last hometown" for its small-scale, old-fashioned downtown of locally owned shops and businesses.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the famous 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 bathrobes and oversized towels.
On the first floor there is a solarium with views of the garden and fountains from each end as well as an open floor plan that includes a dining area with a large wooden table. There is a formal parlor-living room with a fireplace room crafted from local Carmel stone -- perfect for sitting on the comfortable couch and relaxing with a glass of wine or curled up with a good novel. There is also a game room/library, a fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room and full bathroom with a claw foot tub and separate walk-in shower. The library can have a queen size full height aerobed. One small bedroom with a twin size bed is also on the first floor.
On the second floor there is a TV room with a comfortable couch to watch a movie or sports. The billiard room has a full-size pool table and is located next to the TV room making it perfect for socializing and gathering together.
Also on the second floor are 3 bedrooms, one with a king bed which can also become two twins, one with a double bed, and one with a queen bed plus sofa that can sleep a small child. There is a full bathroom with a shower-over-clawfoot tub that is accessible to all three bedrooms. Four fold out sleeping mats are available to put into various rooms for children and single sleepers.
The third floor is the Master Suite that is like being in the treetops with beautiful sunsets and sunrises that can be seen from the windows and balcony. The master suite has a large sitting area, master bathroom with deep soaking tub, separate shower and bay views. The king bed with foam topper can also be broken down into two twins if preferred. Another twin bed is located in the seating area. You can count on a great night sleep high above the treetops with the salt air smells wafting from the nearby Bay. This space is as big as a studio apartment.
Guests may choose to have daily cleaning service, in-house massage by some of the best professionals in the area, private chef/catering as well as concierge services. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing this wonderful home with you. While this house is unique in that it has so many wonderful rooms and is suited for larger groups, it also can be perfect for a couple who just use the master suite on the third floor and main level first floor. This charming-turn-of-the-century house is only two blocks from the heart of Pacific Grove with award-winning restaurants, cafes, bakeries, coffee houses, a movie theater, art galleries, a bookstore/coffee house with live entertainment and numerous specialty shops including vintage clothing, antique stores, an ice cream shop as well as a Monday Farmers' Market featuring regional organic produce, local crafts and food vendors. Whatever the occasion might be, we are excited to share this special home and the beautiful surrounding area.

This is one of those houses out of a story book: grand, beautifully furnished, historical, homey, well kept, spacious. There is a nice pool table on the second floor and big island in the kitchen where everyone gathered in the morning. The owners were right nearby to answer any questions we had. The top floor had a wonderful view of Monterey. We could easily live right there. Room enough for several families and then some. I had a wedding party nearby and had my friends all stay together in one big place. Best decision I made. Flipkey, Sanctuary Homes and the owners have their acts together.

Home was lovely. We enjoyed the large kitchen, and as usual, that seemed to be where everybody gathered. We loved the solarium with the long dining table adjacent to the kitchen, but the chairs were a bit flimsy for a family whose children are 6 feet + tall. The pool table was even more popular than I had anticipated. Was grateful to bring my old dog with me. Nice Side yard to sit out and watch her as I sipped my coffee. Glad we brought the bikes; kids made frequent trips into town, and along the bike path.
Home was well appointed, from kitchen to bathrooms, making it a truly carefree vacation for me.

My wedding party stayed here for 3 nights during the weekend of our wedding. The house is very spacious, comfortable and well-stocked. Everything you could possibly need, they probably have it.
The kitchen in particular was very large, which was great for cooking meals together. There are also plenty of entertainment options (pool table, TV room, a closet full of games as well as walking distance to shops and the beach). It made for a great bonding experience!
The owner and their assistants are extremely helpful and accessible. I would definitely recommend this house for a large group!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

Our trip was to attend our daughter's wedding. It couldn't have been better at this house. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our family (and two dogs). Nan was wonderful as a host and we were grateful to her for her accomodations. She couldn't have been better. We will be back for sure.

Altogether we had 10 people staying at the lovely home on 410 17th St. The place was beautiful, spacious, and had a ton of charm. The online pictures don't even do it justice! We would come back again in a heartbeat and loved the area so much that we seriously considered buying a place there and never going home! Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

We had our wedding party stay here for our wedding weekend. What a wonderful house. We all felt comfortable and there was so much space to be together. The master suite (where I and my now wife stayed) is absolutely amazing. Our party commented on how comfortable the beds were. Made our wedding even more special to spend with those we love.
