Pacific Grove, California

"A spectacular nightly rental in the perfect location…"

 Details

Welcome to
3817 Caledonia Bay Lookout


This home sleeps up to 6 guests.

Explore the wonders of Pacific Grove from this “home away from home” that’s within easy walking distance of the beach, local parks and downtown dining and shopping. Park your car in the one-car garage (possibly two small cars) and head to the Monterey Bay Recreational Trail for amazing bay views, the sound of crashing waves and the cry of the seagulls overhead.

The pet and family-friendly 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath residence is just steps away from spectacular Lovers Point, the Pacific Grove Natural History Museum and other local attractions, including Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links, Point Pinos Lighthouse and Asilomar State Beach.

Beautifully remodeled with modern conveniences while retaining its vintage charm, the 1,800-square-foot home is in the heart of Pacific Grove’s city park network, and is right across the street from Caledonia Park, which includes a tots’ play area, climbing equipment for older children and picnic tables.

It’s also only a few minute to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and historic Cannery Row. Downtown Monterey, Carmel and golfing in Pebble Beach are a 10-minute drive away, and other attractions within a half hour’s drive are the natural wonders of Big Sur and wine tasting and dining in Carmel Valley Village.

The three-story home features hardwood floors and Americana designer touches throughout, a private balcony overlooking Caledonia Park, top-of-the-line kitchen amenities, and peeks of the bay from upper-story windows.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided beach towels, shower and bath amenities, and robes in the bathrooms.

Guests enter down several brick steps to the front door, which opens into a foyer that provides access to the first floor, which has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a twin and trundle bed.

Both bedrooms have doors that open onto a brick patio on the Caledonia Park side of the home. These bedrooms share a hallway bath with a vessel sink and tub/shower combination with custom tile. A laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer is available in the hallway as well.

On the second level, an open floor plan blends the family room, dining room and kitchen, ideal for gathering the whole family together. The kitchen features Italian-made cabinetry, stainless steel appliances that include a six-burner Wolf gas range, a farmhouse apron sink and marble countertops.

The family room offers a cozy seating area with a gas fireplace and comfortable upholstered furniture, adjacent to the wooden dining table with seating for 6 and a marble-topped bar area with beverage refrigerator. Doors from the family room lead to a balcony with a gas grill and outdoor seating, a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset.

On the other side of the kitchen, a beautifully decorated living room with gas fireplace, local coastal artwork and seashell lamps can be found, with slipcovered sofas and a 46-inch HDTV. This spacious room with lofted ceilings is a wonderful gathering space in the center of the home. A half-bath is available in the hallway.

On the third level, the main bedroom suite includes a California king bed, a large closet and full-length mirror. Amenities in the en suite bathroom include a large shower, a shaving mirror, a separate deep soaking tub, dual vessel sinks and custom tilework. There is no door at the top of the stairs, so this bedroom is audibly open to the staircase and lower level.

Front and back yards have a low fence and are landscaped with succulents, flowers and citrus trees. The garage with ChargePoint Level 2 EV Chargerhas space for one large vehicle or two small cars, with additional parking available on the street.

Wonderfully Cozy Monterey Stay
by Madison WI
★★★★★ 5 of 5
Overall Comment
The house was great - everything we needed for our stay. We were visiting for a wedding and had the chance to explore around Monterey as well. The house had plenty of space - great common area for the kids to hang out and for us to enjoy the fireplace. The location is perfect - close to Lover's Point, coffee shops, and a playground right across the street.

We chose this property because of the location and bed sizes. We had two adults and 4 kids. The property was perfect, very clean, and well stocked. The location could not have been any better. The only thing I wish I had known is that the running trail was right there a day earlier.

I Give This Place and the Staff an A+++

My friends and I came up for the Big Sur Marathon weekend and we all enjoyed and loved our stay. Overall, the property was clean (save for a few ants but no biggie) and all the amenities worked well. We had enough of everything so no complaints. I have to commend the staff for being super responsive. For instance, we had a bit of issue closing the patio doors but figuring it out was as easy as reaching out to Barbara. Thank you for being super responsive. Also thank you for accommodating our late checkout - it is much appreciated. Overall, and will surely stay here again if we ever return. It definitely is the best way to do the Big Sur Marathon!

We spent a long weekend at this clean, well furnished home very close to Lovers Point. We had a family if 6 spend the weekend. The bedrooms were spacious and there were plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to host Easter dinner. We would highly recommend this listing.

Dream Villa in Monterey!

Overall Comment
The beautiful photos don't do this gorgeous house justice! We had a SUPERB time in this luxe and lovely home. 3 couples shared the place for 3 nights and we could have stayed forever! The location is beyond perfection - just steps from the sea and a short and lovely walk to the aquarium. The house is so well appointed and the vast living room (with fireplace!) was so great for our board games together and our working apart. The kitchen was full of great appliances and amenities (including an outside grill on the balcony!) and we had so much fun cooking that we ate in every night at the huge dining room table. The welcome included wine and cheese. And the master bedroom upstairs is incredible! The bathtub!
Everything was perfect. Cannot recommend this dream villa highly enough! Thank you!

We Were Very Happy With Our Stay

We were very happy with our stay. The house was beautiful and the location was perfect for getting ocean side walks with our dog. We were only disappointed that we couldn’t access the downstairs patio/yard, but everything else was so nice we’re definitely considering returning.

The door to the downstairs patio/yard was accidentally locked. Management will be sure this doesn't happen again. Thank you for your understanding!

Great location in a lovely home
by Wexford PA

Overall Comment
The house was in a perfect location, on a quiet street next to a small park within easy walking distance to great restaurants like Passionfish, Lovers Point, and the coastal walk to Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. The furnishings were comfortable, particularly the elevated living room over the garage, with attractive artwork. Kitchen had high end appliances, although we only used the refrigerator. It was nice to be greeted with a bottle of wine, crackers and boursin. The description was accurate that the driveway is too small to park, so cars need to fit in the garage. We could just fit a Pacifica minivan due to its length, and also a Jetta next to it (ask passengers to disembark before pulling in). If you have issues with wooden stairs, this would not be suitable as you have to navigate some steps for every level. The master is on the top floor, dining/kitchen/living room/deck on the second floor, and the other two bedrooms are half a flight down from the entry and the garage. There was an inaccuracy in the AirBNB description that we were not aware of until after we paid and got the bed configuration request form from Sanctuary. The third room does not have room for two twin beds, it is a twin bed and a small trundle that pulls out from under the bed. It is all right for two kids, but too tight for two young adults. Also, it was difficult to figure out how to control the water temperature in the master shower, so some directions would be helpful. We had a chilly first night as we did not know the heat was turned off in January. We turned it on for the second night, but it turned itself off some time in the middle of the night. So more instructions on temperature control would have been helpful, too. Overall, a fantastic experience in a great location. The management company was prompt to answer queries, accessible on day of check in and also called the next day to check that everything was ok.

Thanks for your review. In speaking with our House Managers, they indicated that once we were made aware of the hot water situation it was all attended to in the same day and the repairs were completed that evening. A new on-demand hot water heater has been installed since your stay.

A week in paradise

Our stay at 3817 Caledonia Bay Lookout park was perfection at the coast! This immaculate dog friendly home was perfect for our stay- easily walkable to Lover’s Point to join the coastal trail and nestled in a quiet neighborhood. The park across the street is small but perfect for shorter dog walks. The house is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. We had only one issue with getting the WiFi to work in the lower and upper floors and Sanctuary Vacation Rentals worked very hard to get it to work and when they were not successful, they brought us a hot spot to use. (I am certain this will be an easy fix after our departure.) The neighborhood is typical of Pacific Grove with houses very close to each other but it was very quiet and parking our two cars was never a problem. Great location- walkable to the coast, up to Lighthouse Ave (restaurants and shops) and about 1-2 mi from Cannery Row. The house is built vertically so anyone who cannot walk stairs will have trouble. Overall, for us, this house was perfection and we hope to come back soon!

We had such a great time staying here. The location was perfect, and the home was beautiful!

2 things to note -
1. there is no door on the master bedroom, as it is its own (top/3rd) floor of the house, and
2. the 2 other bedrooms are on the bottom floor, with exterior doors in each.

This setup was perfect for us since our kids are now teenagers, but we were glad that we didn't have younger children that we would want to have closer to us.

We had a fantastic week in Pacific Grove. This house is beautifully remodeled, in a great neighborhood with short walks to shops, restaurants, and beach. Highly recommend. Not for people who can't use stairs. Sanctuary was extremely helpful in getting a suitcase to me that was left behind.

Our family enjoyed P.G and the Caledonia home. It was spacious and comfortable. The only hang up I believe is that the front door is on the ground level and the family/living area is on the second level. One of the Sanctuary staff brought us the hot spot which we had requested (quick service), he knocked on the front door and we could not hear that. He was not sure if he should come in unannounced or leave. I think a door bell would be most helpful. I do hope this property is not converted to 30 day stay, there seems to be very few short stays that will accommodate 4+ families comfortably.
