    Would not have gone anywhere else in Monterey

    Dana and her team are the absolute best. If I raved about exactly how happy I am about this venue, you'd get bored reading it. I booked without a single visit to the venue relying on only pictures, videos and testimonials. I was not disappointed. It was everything they said it was going to be and more!
    There are many beautiful places to get married in Monterey ... but the human aspect and customer service is where it makes a different. The folks at the Sanctuary are just incredible.

    Felt taken care of at this beautiful beachside location

    When my fiancee and I were looking for a special place to hold our intimate wedding/elopement, we hit the jackpot when we found The Sanctuary. Dana helped us with every detail. We wanted to hold the ceremony and reception in one location, and she put together some detailed packages for us that included every bit of information you could want, in addition to some you wouldn't even think to ask about. Every step along the way, and with every question we had, Dana was always gracious to help and work with us. Once our day arrived (and also the first time we actually saw the place and met Dana, as we were coordinating from another part of the state), we were thrilled. It was more beautiful in person than the photos could convey. In addition, Dana and every member of the staff treated us with professionalism, kindness, and smiles all around. It added so much to our sense of fun and enjoyment and let us relax and put our attention on each other and our close friends and family. Not to mention, the food was incredibly good (rivaling by far anywhere else we ate in Monterey that weekend), and the pastry chef was kind enough to create a cake for us based on my wife's particular wants. Went off beautifully all around, which is why I'm so glad to be able to write this review and share this with other prospective couples. You'll be in good hands here.

    Awesome venue by the ocean. Rented both rooms with their adjoining patio areas. Aside from the spaces, we also selected to have a bartender in the area and served heavy appetizers that really fed like a meal. All guests loved the venue and food.
