Description from the manager
Welcome to “Mermaid House!”
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
Tucked on a picturesque street next to Monterey Bay, this updated 2-story home combines breathtaking water views with proximity to the charming community of Pacific Grove. Families can enjoy swimming at the beach at nearby Lovers Point.
This 3-bedroom, 3-bath features a reverse floor plan with the main living quarters on the 2nd story to take full advantage of the vistas. Just a few steps out the front door is walking/bike trail that meanders along the water for 15 miles. Pristine in and out, the house has a sophisticated interior design with a seashore motif. Images of shells, seahorses and other gifts from the sea provide accents.
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, oversized towels and beach gear.
The front door opens to a family room where you can relax and play games or watch movies on a 52” flat-screen HDTV in the glow of a gas fireplace. Furnishings include a dark-brown faux leather couch and ottoman/coffee table and brown wicker chairs with sea-foam blue cushions. The couch and ottoman can each become a twin bed; it is possible to sleep 2 small children on twin aero beds. An enclosed patio has a bistro table and chairs where you can enjoy morning coffee.
The ground floor also has a bedroom with a queen wicker bed with luxury linens. An area rug accents the hardwood floor. Wicker side tables, metal lamps and dresser complete the picture. An adjacent bathroom with a tub/shower has sand-colored tiling.
The 2nd story features a handsome great room combining kitchen, dining and living areas. Whether you're preparing a meal, enjoying cocktails at sunset or relaxing in the living room, you can lose yourself in sweeping views over rooftops to the bay. At night, lights from nearby communities impart sparkle. Two leather couches with sea-foam blue accents, a rattan coffee table and a round wood side table sit atop a tweed shag area rug. Watch your favorite shows on a 60” HD TV by the light of a gas marble-faced fireplace. French doors lead to a deck that is equipped with a gas grill, table and chairs for al fresco dining.
The modern fully-equipped kitchen looks out to the living room. A granite angled bar with 3 swivel chairs offers a spot for casual meals. Black appliances include a gas range, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator and trash compactor.
The dining area has a dark wood table and leather upholstered chairs for 6. Setting up for an elegant meal will be a joy with the beautiful selection of dishes, glassware and serving pieces.
The master bedroom, with ocean views, has an island feel, with light mossy green walls, brown wicker king bed with luxury linens and an upholstered side chair. A 42” flat-screen TV sits atop a wood dresser, and there is a generous walk-in closet.
Take a relaxing soak in the spa-like master bath, with its glass-enclosed deep tub/shower with jets and plush towels and robes. Elegant touches include marble on counters and around the tub and a gold, carved-wood framed mirror.
The 2nd upstairs bedroom, also with bay views, has a queen-sized 4-poster bed with luxury linens, marble-topped bedside tables and metal lamps.
A nearby hall bathroom has a tub/shower combination.
One car garage, washer dryer and beach gear on site.

The Mermaid House is a wonderful rental and its proximity to everything in Pacific Grove is a huge plus. You are one block from the beautiful coastal trail that makes Pacific Grove famous. Easy walking distance to restaurants, the Monterey Aquarium, affordable golf course, etc..
The Mermaid House has three bathrooms and plenty of room on 2 floors. The upstairs deck is a wonderful place from which to watch fishing boats in the morning or the sweet ocean breeze in the evening. Sanctuary Rentals is a great company to work with.
