**For more details about specials for this home, see the Sanctuary Vacation Rentals website or call our office directly.
A vintage architectural gem perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean awaits guests to Yankee Point south of Carmel, with magical views of waves and water, where the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep.
This Carmel Highlands oceanfront home was designed to resemble a bird in flight over a river, with the river being the stairway inside. Natural stone and wood inside the home invite guests to become one with the rugged coastline and surrounding environment. In this dramatic setting the land’s end and ocean’s beginning can be fully appreciated.
The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is perfect for a couple or a family, with cathedral ceilings, generous natural light through floor-to-ceiling west-facing windows, cozy bedrooms and beautifully updated spa-inspired bathrooms in the 2,272-square-foot residence with security gate.
Despite the feeling of being away from it all, it’s just five minutes by car to shopping and dining in downtown Carmel, and 10 minutes to golf and sightseeing in Pebble Beach, enjoying historic Pacific Grove, or visiting Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Flanked by windswept cypress trees and a small garden with bougainvillea, roses and hydrangea, the home includes intriguing mid century touches such as vintage pendant lighting, natural stone interior walls and stone steps inside the home. An oceanfront patio offers stone benches and a table, an ideal place to meditate or to watch whales and sunsets.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, spa discount passes, 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, spa robes and beach gear with everything you need for a day at the beach including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler.
The great room at the heart of the home is well suited to conversation, reading, or gazing out the windows at the ocean, and includes a 48-inch HDTV, a vintage-look gas 'wood'stove and comfortable seating that includes a leather sectional. Original artwork can be found throughout, as well as antique and eclectic furnishings.
An adjacent rock-lined bedroom (#3) with queen bed is next to a small full bath with tub/shower combo. The ceiling of this unique room opens to the great room.
Steps lead to a small office space, with wonderful views of an adjacent cove, and also to the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen includes blue tile countertops, a double oven, a Bosch electric cooktop, and a stainless steel double sink.
At the base of the second-level stairway is a convenient half-bath with blue tile and copper basin.
The stairway leads to the master bedroom, featuring a king bed which can also convert to two twins, a small reading nook with a selection of books, and a recently remodeled bath with large shower with adjustable shower head, a vanity area with a sink and seating, and custom tile.
The second bedroom is a loft with king bed and leather headboard with a vintage-look coverlet. The loft takes advantage of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows from the living area below, where the ocean meets the sky and as it opens up to lower areas in the house to take advantage of the views in a unique floor plan, privacy may be an issue when there is more than one couple.
A large, recently remodeled en suite bath includes a two-person shower with custom tile, dual sinks, a shaving mirror, and seating.
Parking for two vehicles in the garage, which also has a washer and dryer, and has plenty of room for storing beach gear. Additional parking is available in the driveway.
Due to the cliffside location and the multiple stairways inside the house, only supervised well-behaved children and pets are accepted, due to liability issues.
**There is an additional fee for pets**
