3344 The Gingerbread House Guest ~ Plush Beds, Full Kitchen, Walk to Downtown
Welcome to "Gingerbread House Guest Suite"! Upper level 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite sleeps up to four adults.
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
The spotless newly renovated 750-square-foot, 2-bedroom guest quarters can sleep 4 guests and can be rented together with the first floor of the main house or separately (see #3343 on the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website for further information about the lower level, 1700 square feet 3 bedroom, 1 bath main suite). Please note that 4 is the maximum number of guests for this upper level suite if rented separately from the main house.
Gaze out into the distance over tree and rooftops to the brilliant blue waters of Monterey Bay from this sunlit second-floor aerie in a lovely traditional house located just four blocks from downtown Pacific Grove.
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 Vineyardsâ€™ 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, spa robes and beach gear.
This light-washed dwelling has a combined living/dining room, 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and a surprisingly large kitchen with a long white table that doubles as extra counter space or a spot to pull up a stool and converse with the cook. With its color scheme of bright and creamy whites, the kitchen includes an electric stove, microwave and refrigerator (no dishwasher). Built-in cabinetry offers plenty of storage. Al fresco meals can be prepared on a separate charcoal grill and enjoyed at a wooden table and benches in a nook bordered by a hedge just off the front lawn downstairs.
The dĂŠcor, with its photographs of playful otters and palette of crisp whites, sandy beiges and turquoise blues and greens, has a beach-cottage quality that imparts a relaxed, get-away feel.
From your seat on a cozy love seat, you can look up from reading one of the numerous inspirational books provided and watch the bay in the distance. Enjoy the same view as you take your meals at a round glass-topped dining table and chairs that seat 4 in the opposite corner. Should you prefer to be entertained electronically, a 42-inch flat-screen HDTV LED and BluRay is provided. The living room also has a comfortable chaise perfect for reading or watching movies and TV.
The master bedroom features a king bed with white shutter headboard, memory foam topper and high quality spa linens.
The second bedroom, with a trio of half-paned windows overlooking the front lawn, also features a king with memory foam topper and luxurious linens and a built-in chest of drawers.
If preferred, the king beds in both rooms can be converted to twins.
The full bathroom, with its recently updated look, features a fresh white tile and vanity. You will find vibrant turquoise and white plush towels, spa robes and slippers that will make you feel totally pampered.
If the main house and guest quarters are rented individually there are separate entrances at opposite sides of the house. If they are rented as one house then the front door entrance allows easy access to both floors. Easy parking on a safe street.
The many delights of Pacific Grove's shops and restaurants, are within easy walking distance, as is the stunning rocky shoreline of Monterey Bay with its pedestrian and bike trail that extends for miles. The popular destinations of historic Monterey and the artist colony of Carmel-by-the-Sea are 10 minutes away by car.
There is no washer and dryer, if renting the upstairs alone. If renting both units, a washer and dryer is available downstairs.

So peaceful and quiet! All the amenities needed to have a great time. We even saw whales jumping in the ocean from the living room window. We walked all around the neighborhood and to the downtown area. Excellent!
“The property was well-equipped, comfortable and attractive.”

We very much enjoyed our stay. There were thoughtful details and ample amenities, and the instructions were very clear for the most part. It was a bit tricky getting the TV to turn on, but that was a minor thing. We slept well and felt right at home, and the central location was a plus. Thank you for your professionalism and courtesy, Annee.
Thanks so much for the wonderful comments and especially for leaving everything so nice and clean. We are working on getting instructions for the T.V that will work no matter what the situation may be.
