Property description

Our beautifully remodeled condo is located in the gated, beach front community of Pajaro Dunes. Why not spend some time at the beach this Fall? The locals know the best weather all year happens in the Fall... The days are typically sunny with little wind or fog. Low season with its lower rates begins Oct 1st. and runs through May 31st. We have a two night minimum which must include a weekend. We also have a minimum of 6 overnight guests. .FYI: we have availability Christmas week. (Dec. 15th - 27th. (holiday rates apply). Pajaro Dunes is known for its private 1.5 miles of beautiful, wide, flat sandy beach. Picture yourself taking an exhilarating walk on the beach while watching the waves crash and collecting sea shells, drift wood and sea glass. If you are lucky you might catch sight of migrating whales or a school of playful dolphins as they breech and splash. Come see the Shorebirds dining at the water's edge and the Pelicans flying in formation!

Pajaro Dunes is a 150 acre Gated, minimal impact, beach front community of luxury condominiums, townhomes and houses located on the beach of the Monterey Bay. You can access the stairwell to our beautiful beach literally 45 steps from our front door.

The southern exposure of our condo allows the sun to pour through our large picture windows throughout the day. Our private decks are protected from the wind. Start each morning watching the sunrise over the Pajaro Valley and its foothills from the windows of our dining room. End each day viewing a spectacular sunset off the LR and master BR windows.

The sound of the surf as you drift off to sleep in one of our comfy beds promotes a peaceful and restful night's sleep. The open floor plan of the condo's living space (entryway, kitchen, over-sized living room and formal dining area) adds to the feeling of comfort and peace. Your attention is immediately drawn outdoors through large picture windows and sliding glass doors. The view is of cypress trees and dunes covered with swaying dune grass.

Pajaro is a bird watcher's paradise. Sit on one of our decks and enjoy watching playful humming birds as they visit our feeders or watch the local wild birds as they fly from tree to tree. Pajaro is home to Monterey Bay shorebirds, and the wild birds of Santa Cruz County. Year round our lagoon hosts wetland water foul and migratory visitors making their way up and down the coast.

For those who seek adventure or romance, there are many exciting places to visit within 30 minutes of Pajaro via Highway 1. The cities of Monterey, Carmel and Santa Cruz offer fine dining, scenic drives, world-class golf, roller coaster rides, whale watching, snorkeling and almost any fun activity you can imagine. We love our beach home and have made it a peaceful retreat from the stresses of everyday life. We are looking forward to sharing this special place with you.
