“So Much Fun!”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2013

We had a great stay at the Castle! The house was very clean and well kept. Nice bedding and towels! Beautiful views from most windows. Quiet location at night which is important. Easy walking to restaurants. We enjoyed eating a sunset dinner at the Beach House. Nice drive to Carmel for lunch at The Forge In The Forest. Drove to Pebble Beach and ate at Roy's for bagpipe sundown serenade and dinner. We had several fun encounters with a resident spirit that seems to reside there. Yes, odd but true! I have a friend who is a medium and this spirit was super excited about letting us know he was in the house. Nothing spooky or weird. It made our trip! Will definitely go back!

“Unforgettable”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2013

The captains castle was amazing. We were very excited to see the house in person and it exceeded everyone expectations. The views were gorgeous, the house was clean and very comfortable. The 3rd floor tower was amazing, we loved having afternoon snacks up there watching the spectacular views. We also enjoyed the fireplace in the living room. The house is well stocked with everything we needed. The house is also very convenient to everything the area has to offer. Easy walk to the aquarium and Cannery Row, beautiful walk to Lovers point, and quick drive to Carmel and 17mile drive. We loved every bit of it. It was a fabulous holiday. We all loved the house so much we did not want leave. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to go back someday.

“A beautiful place and a superb location!”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

I would stay here again and again! Sanctuary Vacations does it again, with another outstanding location to stay. The morning light coming into the tower was my sanctuary for tea and thought. We watched the harbor seals vying for beach front with their newborns and was a sight to be seen. The location was perfect for a walk morning, noon and evening. On one of our walks we saw a Doe and Fawn walking down 3rd street to take a walk with all of the public on their strolls. Luckily they were safe from traffic. Be it the beaches nearby and in Carmel By the Sea, or the restaurants and great kitchen and dining room we had many choices for enjoying our stay. Easy to get to and a fun place to enjoy this will make a wonderful retreat from life! The upstairs retro shower is a must.. Though I would beg to have it enclosed in glass so I don't have to worry about getting the floor wet. It still is awesome! David

“Captain's Castle--Sanctuary with the Sea and the Sky”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

From the moment we saw it, we knew the Captain's Castle in Pacific Grove is the right place for a group/personal retreat. The whimsical house is well-grounded in the lovely landscaped garden and private Eden of a patio with a fenced grassy lawn (big enough and private enough to hold outdoor yoga class, or writers' group discussion). The Castle Tower reaches for the stars with magnificent panoramic views of the sea and sky- great for meditation and just watching and listening to the ocean and living into the sky, the trees, the sun, and moon. The first floor has nooks and comfortable furniture to settle in for privacy a wonderful open kitchen with a large adjacent central room in which to gather and socialize. The Castle is located on a quiet side street with a woodland pocket-park of local plants and trees right on the water, only a few steps away from the front door. They closest neighbors behind arching trees and tall fences are quiet and peaceful. The Castle is just 18 steps away from the spiritually uplifting coastal walking path and the breath-taking sea herself. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is true to its name, providing an experience of calm and beauty that is more than just a great place to stay. Sanctuary carefully and thoughtfully anticipates guests and provides the perfect setting for a stress-free and spa-like stay - green cleaning products, luxurious bath products, bathrobes, lush linens and bedding, led candles in the front hall and by the beds, inspirational books, literature on the local sights and events, pre-stocked kitchen for your first glass of wine and continental breakfast. Sanctuary goes above and beyond most rentals with charming notes posted here and there that help a visitor find her way around the heating system, the charming antique shower, the high tech connections, and the kitchen appliances, taking the guess-work out of staying in this grand and comfortable sanctuary.

“Cozy Castle - a sanctuary in the midst”

Reviewed 5 May 2013

From the moment we arrived I knew we were in the right place - quiet side street, fabulous views, whimsical fun architecture, historic detail, unique interior decor, comfortable furniture, sparkling kitchen, and plenty of room to be together as a group or find a cozy nook in the house or lovely garden patio to contemplate the beauty. The neighborhood is peaceful residential - the front of the house faces a natural woodland private park,the neighbors are quiet, you can hear the ocean and sea birds throughout the house. The ocean and wondrous walking path along the unspoilt natural coastline is literally 20 paces out the door. You can follow the path towards or away from humanity. Plenty to watch, plenty to listen to, plenty to fill your soul. There were 4 of us in our group with one rental car, which could have presented conflicts had it not been for the shops, bookstores, natural supplement store, restaurants, markets, and beach and path all within a 10 minute walk. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals anticipated what we might want to start relaxing and unwinding after a day of travel... The front hall was set with led candles aglow. The kitchen was stocked with the makings of a sunset wine and cheese party up in the "tower" overlooking the ocean, as well as plenty for breakfast including the supplies for coffee and tea making. They also provided bathrobes, towels, eco-friendly laundry and dishwasher soap and signs to help us navigate the unique antique plumbing in the baths (elegant), the electronics, and the house systems, as well as providing us with inspirational and informational reading - all thoughtfully placed to save us time and keep us clear and balanced as we enjoyed this lovely house and this glorious place.

“I felt like a Queen living in the Captains Castle”

Reviewed 4 May 2013

This vacation rental house is magical. The vacation rental company that we worked with, Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, was a dream service. Upon entering the castle we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, cheese and goodies with a personal note from our house manager. I felt immediatly cared for. The furniture and fixtures are exactly fitting to the house and the place feels like your own bed and breakfast inn. The photo's are true! Every thing that you desire in a rental house is included...even a brand new sponge at the sink! The location can not be topped. We woke each morning to the sound of the ocean and momma seals giving birth. What a treat.

This was the highlight of my trip from Wisconsin. Easy walking to Cannery Row restaurants and just yards from the Coastal trail that winds for miles along the water. Early evening cocktails were fantastic up in the tower with the incredible views of the ocean and the tunes on the Bose in the background. Both the interior and exterior architecture are very unique and made this vacation something to remember as opposed to just another hotel.
