"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Monterey! The home was beautiful & perfect for our group. " - Leanne A., Omaha, NE, 10/24/2016 (inquire/book)
"This was a great location for our large group. It was close to most attractions and had a great place to gather. Great privacy for each couple as well. I would recommend this house to others in the future." - Amy M., American Fork, UT, 07/16/2016 (inquire/book)
"We had a wonderful weekend at your lovely property in Del Rey Oaks. Everything was comfortable and in good working order. It was a great setting for our family reunion with people from 4yrs to 85yrs old! Thank you for offering your home as a home away from home for us!" - Polly M., Santa Cruz, CA, 02/01/2016 (inquire/book)
"Our rather large family gets together every year at Thanksgiving, at usually wonderful places like Mt. Shasta, Missoula, Morro Bay, Reno; and have been doing so for 15 years. I think we all agreed this Monterey house was the most comfortable and one of the best equipped for a large family with both small children and elderly. We all like to cook and eat also, and the kitchen and eating areas were very well equipped." - laura c., redding, ca, 11/29/2015 (inquire/book)
"No water?. The water dept is at the door saying they have to shut off water as bill has not been paid. 14 of us are here on vacation. We cannot reach owners or property managers, neither can the water dept." - laura C., 11/24/2015 (inquire/book)We are sorry for any confusion that this issue may have caused. The concern regarding the water company was dealt with swiftly, and due to a confusion regarding a change in account details that was resolved. The water at the property was never shut off, and the renter was kept informed as soon as we were alerted to the issue.
"We stayed at this home during the Pebble Beach auction week and found it perfectly appointed and close to most of the events we attended. The property manager was extremely friendly and helpful." - Karen M., Ste.1,SC, 08/18/2015 (inquire/book)

"Over the Easter weekend we had a great pleasure of gathering with our kids (3), their spouses, and our grandchildren. We missed our youngest son, but were thrilled to see all four of our grandchildren in this beautiful house for the first time. The house had everything we needed to accommodate so many people. The kitchen and dining area were spacious and well equipped. We loved the fact, that the house is on a safe cul-de-sac and within a short walk from a park and children play area. And of course, my husband loved that we could escape to our beautiful, quiet master bedroom. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house." - Halina B., Thayne, WY, 04/12/2015 (inquire/book)

Additional needs that arose were met promptly. Thank you for sharing your home. We have many wonderful memories that we will cherish always." - Tiffany H., Lehi, Ut, 12/26/2014 (inquire/book)
"Had a great time!. For 8 60-something HS classmates, this house worked out well. It was nicely remodeled, quite clean, and 3 full baths were a major plus. The location was convenient to Monterey and Carmel attractions, the beach, the Steinbeck museum in Salinas, and it was VERY close to the Monterey airport. There a lots of great restaurants a short drive away. Thanks for sharing this cute home." - Victoria W., Tucson, 07/20/2014 (inquire/book)We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Monterey Oaks! We were happy to share our home with you and hope that you helped us add more love and laughter to its walls. We would love to have you come stay with us again anytime!
"Great Girls Weekend Getaway. We arrived to find a lovely house perfect to accommodate our large group of women on our weekend getaway. There was plenty of room and we made use of the kitchen and hot tub. The house was close to a local supermarket which was very convenient and within a 5-10 min drive of anywhere we needed to be. We enjoyed dinner in downtown Monterey and wine tasting in nearby Carmel Valley. Would recommend this house to anyone needing a place to accommodate a large group in style." - Katie S., 04/02/2014 (inquire/book)We are so glad that you had such a wonderful time! We look forward to hosting your group again soon!
"Great Time for 4 Generations Of Our Family. We had a belated holiday get away in Monterey with a 3 day visit over the President's Day weekend. The home is situated just outside of Monterey on a quiet cul-de-sac but close enough to a grocery store and other services. The home is spacious with plenty of room. We had 9 in our group from great-grandpa down to the youngest who was just 10 months old. The sleeping arrangements were great and we even had a bungalow as a reserve if needed. We spent time out and about including visits to the Dennis the Menace playground in Monterey, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel and Point Lobos. We did some things together as a family, other times folks went out and about on their own like the 17 Mile Drive. Evenings we enjoyed a fire in the fireplace. The hot tub was used morning, afternoon and and evenings and was very relaxing. There is a pool table in the garage but was used sparingly this time because of the Winter Olympics, card games, reading and playing with children/grandchildren. We enjoyed time together reminiscing. In-house meals (breakfast and dinners) were prepared in a spacious kitchen. The laundry room and pantry were super. We enjoyed the upstairs master bedroom which was out of the way and peaceful. The overall condition of the home was excellent. We appreciated having a binder with details on the home if we needed it for reference. While we normally eat out this time we didn't with each sub-family unit fixing a meal and grand-pa making breakfast. Thanks for the great time. We'll be back." - Susan O., 02/25/2014 (inquire/book)We are pleased that you enjoyed our home, glad it was a great fit. We look forward to hosting your group soon!
"WOWzers!!. LOVE LOVE LOVE this home!!! I was planning my sister's bridal shower weekend getaway and stumbled upon this home. What a GEM!! When we arrived, we walked into this beautiful, spacious, inviting home to find a welcome packet with all the necessary information about our stay. As we walked into the kitchen, there was a bottle of cider and a personal handwritten welcome card by the Alexanders. The house was spacious (there were 9 of us) and had all the amenities needed for our stay (space heater, blow up mattress, towels, etc). The layout of the home was perfect and there was plenty of rooms to accommodate for more people. This home sits within miles of the beach, stores, Canary Row (all the tourist attractions).. It was the perfect getaway and all the girls felt like our home away from home. The next time we plan our Monterey/Carmel trip, I will be staying at this home again. The Alexanders were wonderful and they were constant communication throughout the process. I definitely recommend this home to serve your special occasion. It did for us!!" - Esther R., 02/04/2014 (inquire/book)We are honored to provide you with a home to make your memories! We hope to host you and your family again!

"Our Family Reunion was Spectacular!. I wanted to take a moment and let you know how much we enjoyed your beautiful home. The layout is really nice for a large gathering. We used the Monterey Aquarium passes several times, and that was one of our families favorite outings. We also went Kayaking/Paddle Boarding with Monterey Bay Kayaks ($30/day includes wetsuit); spent a day in Carmel, drove 17 mile drive; went to the Gilroy Garlic Festival; flew a private plane out of Marina Municipal Airport; and hiked Point Lobos where we saw deer, otters, and seals/sea lions. The kitchen and living room and dining area was a great gathering spot.The Safeway and Costco close by allowed us make many of our meals at home but of course we dined at Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing, The Hogs Breath in Carmel and Cannery Row Brewing Company in Monterey. We'll be back in 2 years and are looking to rent your Monterey 6 bedroom home." - Kathie, Portland, Oregon, 07/30/2012 (inquire/book)

"Exactly what we needed!. This home was perfect for our group and it's intended purpose: a getaway and "sanctuary" after the Big Sur 1/2. We loved the accomodations. The Kitchen was beautiful (we had our chef friend cook for us and he loved it). Rooms were great, hot tub perfect! The entertainment room/living space a little small for our group. This should NOT deter you from staying here. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Close to downtown and newly remodled Safeway right around the corner!" - Erin T., 12/06/2011 (inquire/book)

Kids and grown-up alike have all had a blast." - David B., Oak Hills, CA, 08/07/2011 (inquire/book)
"Wonderful. Our family is now spread all over the country and we needed a place where all 15 of us could spend some quality time together . This house was the perfect place for us. We loved the location - quiet, within minutes of a beach and other recreation, and three or four blocks to groceries, gas, and other stores we needed. The drive to downtown Monterey was about 5-10 minutes depending on where we wanted to go. The house was beautifully decorated and very clean. We loved the kitchen with it's granite countertops, large cooktop, and double ovens, which was also very well stocked with all the cooking and serving tools we needed and a pantry that offered many of the spices and additional foods we needed to complete our meals. We truly appreciated the laundry room as well. The gathering area was just right and everyone was very comfortable in their sleeping arrangements. The outside extra room was great for grandpa to be able to escape occasionally for a nap or a quiet reading place. Everyone enjoyed the game room where we had a few ping pong and poor tournaments. This truly was our "home away from home" for a few days and we loved it. Thanks." - Maggie H., 07/28/2011 (inquire/book)
"We have been looking forward to this trip for close to a year. The home was wonderful for our trip to Monterey, and for the Moto GP races.

Thank you again, Mandy and Aaron " - Amanda Y., 4209 Crescent Avenue ,Ev, 07/27/2011 (inquire/book)

"Couldn't be easier. Several people from my office attend an annual conference in Monterey. We were tired of holing up in overpriced hotels and eating out every meal, so this year, we decided to rent a house. It ended up costing much less because we split the cost of the rental, and we had great fun making meals in the fantastic, well-appointed gourmet kitchen. The house is huge, so we had plenty of privacy. The staff at Sanctuary Vacation Rentals made this transaction painless and worry-free. In the end, I looked like a genius for arranging the lodging for my colleagues. Thank you, and we'll see you next year!" - Suzy, San Bernardino, 05/04/2011 (inquire/book)
"Beautiful and cozy! Great for large family!. This house was beautiful and cozy. We loved everything...the rooms, the location, the spa. We cooked and baked in the amazing kitchen and it was so nice that it was stocked. We even used the laundry room. We will definitely be back!" - christy, Benicia, CA, 04/29/2011 (inquire/book)
"Great home, lots of space and all very beautiful. We had a great time in Monterrey at your beautiful home. Hot tub was great and all the bedrooms and kitchen were exquisite. I even left my computer charger behind and it was mailed to me free of charge. Only negative is that it was a bit of a drive to anywhere we wanted to go (eat, aquarium, Pebble beach etc). Thank you for a great stay!" - Molly, Albany, CA, 02/19/2011 (inquire/book)
"Paradis Group in January 2011. Upon arrival we found this home to spacious and very clean. It had all the ammenities as described and was very comfortable. We used the gourmet kitchen to prepare dinner on Saturday night and it was a joy for 2 women to cook together! There was plenty of space and all the tools were provided. The group has asked to go again." - June, Sacramento, 02/15/2011 (inquire/book)
