“Great Home for a wonderful getaway”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a beautiful home to spend time in while exploring Pacific Grove and the Monterey Peninsula! Three senior couples couldn't have been more pleased. The home is lovely and kept clean, including windows, by the home manager, Julia. The kitchen was perfect for preparing meals to enjoy in the lovely dining room. You can walk to the shore and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific. Walk as far as you wish. One unique attraction, very close to the home, is the Point Pinos Lighthouse which dates from 1855. It is a delightful, historic lighthouse. The village, or old downtown Pacific Grove is also worth a visit. You can't go wrong with staying here. We also enjoyed a drive to Carmel and Carmel Valley, the Aquarium and Monterey State Historic Park.

“BEST HOME FOR LOCATION AND PRICE!”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great Stay! This was our second stay in two years at Otter's Rest. Location is tremendous, with beautiful ocean views and only a block or so from the ocean. Minutes from Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel and 17 Mile Drive. Well appointed kitchen with all the amenities. Clean, inside and out. We had a couple of very minor issues and they were addressed and taken care of in less than 24 hours. Only drawback is the wi-fi is very slow. Needs to be upgraded.

Linens and towels are fairly new and in good condition. Lots of extras for you too. Spices in the kitchen, paper towels, dish and laundry soap, Kleenex, body wash, shampoo/cream rinse and more. Coolers in garage, games, books, lots of things for you to do.

Also, they take the time to label the light switches (so you know which is which), heated floors and more. I could go on!!

I highly recommend this rental. Sanctuary Vacation Rentals is the property manager. They do a great job.

Enjoy your stay in this fantastic home.

“HEAVEN on EARTH”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I know many people use HEAVEN on EARTH.. But they have not stayed at the " Otter's Rest" This place is truly unbelievable. It is a very short walk to the ocean with Rocks and waves that a person from Texas has never seen. and then a beautiful park right across the street. My wife and I went with our best friends.. 2 couples who have been married for nearly 40 years. We all had our bathroom and bedroom.. a beautiful living room and outside a grill and fire pit. We all laughed till we cried. This home is AWESOME.. And of course the Pacific Grove Public Golf Course less than a half a mile away. Sanctuary Rentals tried to explain how pretty this place is.. but they fell short.. IT IS AWESOME.. FANTASTIC.. UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They did it ALL perfect.

“WOW!”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

There were 6 of us ( 3 couples ) who rented this home to celebrate our 60TH birthdays. What a great choice we made! Every major room in this home has a view of the ocean.
The master bedroom is very spacious with a king bed, a sitting area and the grandest of master baths one could ever ask for, with the finest of linens. The tea tree soap was a plus and hit with everyone. Whether in bed, sitting on the sofa, soaking in the large tub or enjoying the deck off the bedroom, the views are spectacular!
Off of the master is a large library full of books to browse or as in the rest of the house, amazing views of the ocean. The upstairs also has another very large bedroom that offers two twin beds or can convert to a king. We opted for the king. The bath is large and spacious with a beautiful shower and wonderful linens. This room also has a deck where you can stand to watch and listen to the ocean waves. This bedroom is the only one with a TV.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a fairly private patio. While this bedroom does not have a private bath, the main bath is only a few steps away. There is a laundry room beyond that bath and laundry soap was provided for our use.
The kitchen is a chef's dream! One of, if not the most beautiful kitchens I have seen. Everything we needed was there. The overly large butcher block island provided more than enough space for the six of us to either stand or sit around as we had our morning breakfast and planned our day.
The living area is spacious and inviting with wonderful views of the ocean.
The landscaping is beautiful and the patio is another plus with this home. It has sitting areas, a fire pit, an amazing grill and I believe it was a Sundance hot tub that looked so inviting but we just never got around to using it.
There is ample parking and you can use the garage if you want too.
Ok so the home is amazing and beautiful, but, the location, PERFECT! It is just a short walk to the ocean and miles of walking trails in either direction. One day walking back from the Aquarium we spotted 3 whales just off the coast and we followed them all the way home. That really topped off a perfect day!
Thank you Otter's Rest for helping us turn the big 60! It was a grand way to do it.
