Our unique vacation homes, many with stunning ocean views, invoke a sense of peace and harmony, often awe, and in some inexplicable way allow people to relax and have fun, as well as to revitalize and reconnect with one another. We combine fine resort accommodations and relaxed elegance with all the comforts of home.
Sanctuary Vacation Rentals represents properties throughout the Monterey Peninsula which is made up of a number of unique communities

We offer extraordinary properties in highly desirable communities including the 1-square-mile village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel proper, Carmel Highlands, Big Sur, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel Valley and the Hwy 68 Corridor near the airport and Laguna Seca Race Track.
Whether you want to experience the Central California wine-country lifestyle
the allure of living alongside a prestigious world-class golf course, intimate romantic honeymoon cottage in a European Style Village by the Sea, a large friendly home with multiple bedrooms and communal areas for a family reunion, accommodations that are steps to the beautiful beach coastal trail leading you to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row, a luxury estate to house a wedding party, accommodations for corporate gatherings or a secluded mountaintop aerie with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, we can bring your dream to life.
Throughout Sanctuary's vacation rentals
