We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. The views were amazing, gorgeous and perfect! The location has been central to all our travels on foot. We hope to be back soon!
“Great location, nice views, cozy fireplace and soft beds.”
The service was unusually nice, although we wish that the free aquarium tickets (now being shown above) were available to us when we were there last month, since they're quite expensive. The location is sensational, about a block from the water and easy walking distance to the aquarium and the Cannery Row stores and restaurants. We had a lovely multigenerational family trip, despite three days of rain. The main floor and fireplace were so welcoming. We had a fire going every day it rained. The living room view was charming, and the living room couch, which seats three, was everyone's favorite spot. The living room futon, however, is too low and is uncomfortable for both sitting and for sleeping. It needs to be replaced, as do the mattresses in the master bedroom and one other. The beds were uncomfortable for 4 of the 6 adults.The wi-fi barely works. Peet's coffee nearby in Monterey and the hotel down the street have reliable and rapid wi-fi service if needed.
“A little surprised, but content.”
About the house: We reserved this home for a group of 6, staying 4 nights. We were surprised that it was a duplex. The neighbor renters were very loud for the bedroom on the first level that was underneath that side. The pictures on the website are spatially deceiving, but it was decorated accordingly and fully set up for our group which was nice. The downstairs shower drain was clogged and about 4 inches of standing water collected during the very first shower. The water went down eventually but would build back up during every shower and, with 4 people using it, it can get quite gross. The kitchen was good except that there was not a decent spatula to cook with and no pepper shaker that we could find. The cookware in general could use an update but there were plenty of dishes for our group. There are tons of little white labels all over the house with directions...I'll admit that in a few instances these were helpful but also made it very hard to relax and feel at "home". Those notes could also live in a nice binder that is clearly labeled/divided. Amenities: The location of the house is great and the walkway to the ocean is so close! There is a public beach only a couple blocks away and Cannery Row is really close as well. There were spa passes for people to use but our group was coming for activities so we would have appreciated the option for aquarium passes instead. Service: The staff that we did encounter were pleasant and accommodating, even letting in one of the guests early to use the facilities. They also allowed for some friends, not staying with us, to put a gift in our unit. The staff called to alert us that strong winds had blown the rain tarp partly off the roof but it would be fixed the next day and assured us that everything was OK. Overall, the house worked for our sleeping needs but we were expecting more for the cost. We would consider Sanctuary Rentals for upcoming travel but would most likely not choose this specific house again.
Response from the manager We really thank this guest for taking the time to post this detailed review. We are glad to report as a follow up that once we heard they were having troubles with the shower, we were able to have it fixed the same day while they were out sight-seeing. It is our policy to care for such matters as quickly as possible and with as little inconvenience to our guests as possible. It is regrettable, but there are occasional plumbing issues in any home and we set about righting them as soon as possible if they should arise during a guest stay. Somehow the six small pepper shakers that are in the home were not found during their stay, but this guest was right - we needed to replace spatulas! We have since repopulated the spatula count! While many of our guests found our little labels and signs very helpful, some did not, so we have greatly reduced the number of signs in all of our homes. There is a Welcome Book with helpful information about operating instructions that is accessible to every guest and we find this to be sufficient, not to mention access to the House Manager/Concierge to answer additional questions or to care for any issues. It is our policy that our reservations staff fully inform potential guests that this is a duplex. Noise is rarely an issue. Both units are Sanctuary Vacation Rentals homes, so we are confident that if a noise issue is reported that it will be cared for promptly. We are glad to hear this guest was ultimately content, but we really set out to exceed expectations. When a guest is not 100% satisfied, we invite them to contact us during their stay if remotely possible, so we may find a way to satisfy them and care for their needs. With thanks and wishing all happy travels, Sanctuary Vacation Rentals Staff
“Great location & view!”
I booked this house for my groomsmen for my wedding last month. I stayed with my family right next door, but frequently hung out with my groomsmen in their house. They loved staying here. Both properties are similarly well-appointed, the house is comfortable and spacious and the view is great. The location is great as you're just steps from Cannery Row and also very close to Pebble Beach. The ocean-side walking path is literally out the front door. Highly recommended!
“This unit provided our extended family a wonderful chance to reb”
This home is lovely, very functional, and perfectly located for a family of walkers. The view is fantastic and the amenities are exceptional. The check in process was easy and the wine and cheese provided a great welcoming touch. There is not one thing to be desired and we plan to return again for another reunion. Thank you. Dinah Naske.

We so enjoyed our stay! There were three couples and there was ample room and the house was beautifully decorated and well supplied. There was also a information about the area in the house which is always so helpful. We came to do the 21 mile walk of the Big Sur Marathon so to be able to relax after and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean from the balcony or living room was wonderful. The lay out of the home was perfect and everyone felt they had privacy. The house is very close to the walking paths by the ocean and we were able to walk down and see the harbour seals or walk to Cannery Row a short distance away. This is an amazing home in an amazing location!
“Our stay at The Sanctuary really did renew our mind, body and sp”
The house was very elegant while still feeling cozy and comfortable. We had two small children with us so we did have to do a little child proofing but after that was done the layout worked well for all of us. Sitting on the decks was one of our favorites spots. The views were inspiring. The location was really convenient and allowed us to walk to most of our destinations. The kitchen was well stocked and fun to cook in. It was hard to leave such a beautiful place.
The home was very comfortable. Plenty of room and the view of the ocean was beautiful. The location was very good for walking every where. The issue was when watching the TV there was humming, and a line through the TV, in the family room. Also, the same TV, DVR, did not work for recording. One last item was check out time was too early. We did not realize the time until we arrived.
Words cannot really describe how wonderful this house is. The location is terrific and easy walking distance to the aquarium and the local shops, and the coastal pathway is just over the road. I loved the fact that you could see sea otters and seals from the upstairs windows. The house was well stocked with glassware, crockery and cutlery and we found everything we needed. The welcome bottle of wine and the cheese that were left was a lovely touch. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was spacious enough to cater for 3 couples. It was very pleasantly furnished and the dining table looked so beautiful when we arrived, we didn't want to disturb it. If you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. As a footnote, they no longer require you to strip the beds when you leave.
While this rental is a bit pricey, you can't beat the location if you are interested in visiting the Monterey aquarium. Also the ocean view from the living and dining rooms is very nice. The home has modern appliances and is especially nice if you have small children since a stroller and highchair are available. The rental agent will pick up and return a crib rental if necessary. When we thought we might have to check out later than 10 am, the cleaning crew was willing to accommodate a later departure. The only thing we found less than optimal was the lack of a yard and the requirement that we strip the beds and place all linen and towels in the laundry room. However, a welcome bottle of Merlot provided a nice touch.
