Description from the manager
Welcome to “Hermitage by the Sea!”
**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
You will sigh with contentment the moment you step inside the light-filled entryway and experience the soothing elegance and distant ocean views of this immaculate 3-bedroom, 3-bath home tucked beneath moss-shrouded oaks and stately pines in the exclusive gated community of Pebble Beach. A calm palette is woven throughout this handsome 2-story house, imparting a sense of unity to the restrained simplicity of the architecture and décor.
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.
The second story comprises the main living space enabling distant views of the sparkling blue ocean over the treetops from the living and dining rooms. A bank of skylights on the high beamed ceilings bathes the living room, dining room and kitchen in soft coastal light. The spacious great room -- with its hardwood floors, area rugs, fashionable gray-and-white striped chairs, taupe high-backed sofa, off-white easy chair and whitewashed wood coffee table, offers an inviting setting for cocktails and conversation as you watch the sun dip behind the blue Pacific. Later, as the evening cools, you may want to light a fire in the gas fireplace and curl up with a book. A virtual wall of glass has sliding doors that open to a deck overlooking the front yard.
The brand new, modern kitchen with its white quartz counter tops, high-end appliances and sleek contemporary cabinetry is a standout feature of the home. Stand at the sink and enjoy indoor-outdoor views and interact with others in the dining room, at the bar or in the living room. Whether you prefer to dine simply or prepare more elaborate gourmet meals, everything you need is provided, from top-of-the-line appliances to cookware and dishes. Entertain up to 10 in the dining room at a rectangular distressed-wood table ornamented with hurricane lamp candelabra. Relax with your morning coffee at a window seat that looks through a similar large peaked window to the ocean.
Alternatively, you can prepare meals on a gas grill and dine outdoors on a private deck with a round wooden table and chairs for 4 while you enjoy the garden with its colorful potted plants, flowering shrubs and collection of wall-mounted birdhouses.
The master bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to a patio, has a queen bed fitted with luxury linens and a beige coverlet, rattan lamps, distressed-wood end tables, dresser and a flat-screen TV. A large walk-in closet offers ample storage. The master bath has a porcelain soaking tub and a separate large shower.
A second smaller bedroom also has sliding glass doors opening to the patio, a wrought-iron queen bed with an embroidered beige linen coverlet, a whitewashed wood end table and a wrought-iron lamp. A full bath down the hall is tiled in white with a decorative checkerboard black and white tile strip and features a glass-enclosed shower.
Relax, play games or watch movies in the downstairs family room with comfy couch and chairs and a 44” flat screen HDTV over the gas fireplace. There is also a desk if you are on a working vacation, a stainless steel sink and small refrigerator.
On this lower level, a third bedroom has a queen bed with Mission-style headboard and chest of drawers. Sliding glass doors leading a to a patio where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee at a small table and chair. A full bath has a tub shower. Adjacent is a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

Left on 12/08/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | KatherineReviewed Dec 8, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
We could not have asked for any place more perfect to get our family together for Thanksgiving. The beds were so comfortable and the entire home lent itself to restful time. We loved the views from the living room, the fireplace and the large dining room table where we could all sit together. The short walk to the beach was perfect. Golf close by was an added bonus. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner although we had to do a lot of timing with the small oven. Having the outdoor grill solved most of our issues. From the minute we entered the house we fell in love and cannot wait to return!
