Very Good

“Charming and Lovely”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

The home was classic Carmel with beautiful furnishings, updated kitchen and beautiful bathroom. The deck was lovely and we even fed blue jays peanuts from our hands! The bathroom is exquisite and the master bed was SUPER comfortable. Quiet, perfect location, yet super close to town. Whenever we had an issue, Annee was open and receptive to helping. Her company, Sanctuary Rentals, really helped us out so much for those few months we were looking for a home. They enabled us to stay on the peninsula in style while we looked for a home. Thank you, Annee and Sanctuary Rentals!

“Family reunion on the Spring Break”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

We rented this home during Spring Break week. We absolutely loved it! The home is elegant and at the same time has the feeling of decorative, beach home that really suits the house located in Carmel-by-the sea. The ambiance and art work made it so pleasant! The location is great because it's a walking distance to the Ocean avenue with all the restaurants, shops and galleries, and just a short car ride to the beach. The home had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, plenty of towels and linens, plenty of kitchen supplies, outdoor patio with the grill and couch make this home a treasure! We made wonderful memories in this home and would recommend it for any family event!

We had the most relaxing visit at Sanctuary by the Sea during our March trip. The home was extremely clean and I love clean. Every detail was thought of throughout the home from the kitchen to the wonderful throw blankets. Our yorkie, Sasha, enjoyed her daily walks and the secret garden below the deck. I enjoyed my daily walks through town and along the beach. The instant hot water was perfect as we have tea every night. We have one at our home and I thought I would have to do without for the week, Annie was thoughtful enough to have one in this home. We have stayed at 10-12 different vacation rentals and this was by far the best on the list. We will be coming back again. Don't look at another home rent this one!

“The Best Christmas!”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

Our family has enjoyed vacations in Carmel since Christmas 1957 when we rented Log Haven, one of Carmel's oldest cottages.  Since then we've had many happy Carmel experiences, but none better than this year's enjoyment of our Sanctuary by the Sea cottage.  The Sanctuary retains the ambiance of old Carmel while affording the comfort of top line, modern features.  We look forward to returning.    Sincerely,  Ingrid Ericson

“Chill and Relax in Comfortable Luxury”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2012

The Sanctuary is an amazing rental home with all the amenities you can imagine. Comfortable beds and linens will ensure a restful sleep. My dogs loved it and the back yard is great! Kitchen has everything a cook could wish for...fireplaces are a great bonus. We will returning as soon as possible. You just cannot go wrong with The Sanctuary! Enjoy.

“It felt like our home away from home, and maybe even better.”

Reviewed 14 Dec 2011

Everything that we wanted for the home was there. The arrangements and assistance were excellent. The house was beautiful and relaxing for all of us and our dog. The location was nice, very close to town, the beach, dining and shopping. It was perfect to relax, cook in the beautiful kitchen, which had everything needed for gourmet meals to snacks. The home and all things in it were exceptionally clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay again. We honeymooned in Carmel and came back for our 40th anniversary & it couldn't have been better!

“Truly a Sanctuary”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2011

We have rented "pet friendly" homes in the Carmel area for the past nine years and none have been as well appointed as this home! It truly is a "sanctuary" vacation rental. Plus,the staff went out of their way to meet our special request. We look forward to our return. J,D & Pup! Littleton, CO

Your vacation house is beautiful. All that visited us were very impressed. My nephew and his family will be contacting you about renting in the future.

“Every need anticipated, every comfort provided”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2011

From the personal note greeting us as we walked in the door of this charming Carmel cottage, to the wine and cheese to welcome our stay, to the well appointed kitchen, to the luxurious master bath, to the dreamy bed...we never wanted to depart! The decorator touches from annee and the design of the remodel, transformed this typical little cottage into a true vacation sanctuary. Set up for relaxing or entertaining, for cooking or just making coffee, the kitchen was well equipped, and best of all, was a delight with spices, sea salt, olive oil and anything needed for a gourmet meal. We enjoyed sharing the cottage with brother and sister-in-law, although we had to flip for the master bedroom Vs. the more feminine and smaller 1st floor guest bedroom. Other options for guests were 2 more rooms with day beds & trundles that would work for children or teens. We look forward to our next stay here.

“Super well-appointed”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

This is an incredibly thoughtfully staged rental. Every detail shows how much the owner cares about the guests' experience. It's very charming, very well-located, and absolutely everything you could want is included, from an iron to lotion to a vacuum. Check-in was a little slow because the information sent to us was incorrect. It said there was a lockbox by door (there wasn't. It was on side of house). It said the code would be something it wasn't. In fact, after a phone call to a confused agent, we finally figured out that maybe the key would actually be someplace else entirely (it was). But this was a mere 15 minutes of annoyance out of a great weekend. Beautiful house and well worth renting!
