              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We live about an hour from our beach condo and love to stay when we can- but that is not often enough, so we choose to share this special place with guests. This is a perfect location on Monterey Bay Beach, conveniently located a short distance between Santa Cruz and Monterey, yet away from the crowds. Enjoy!

              Why the Owner Chose Monterey:
              Pajaro Dunes is a Monterey Bay area secret- a quiet gated community, very accessible from the San Francisco/San Jose Bay areas yet feels much further away. Watching the waves on the endless beach and hearing the roar of the surf is relaxing and restful. For more action filled days, its an easy trop to either Santa Cruz or Monterey.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We are well positioned close to both Santa Cruz and Monterey with endless options for all ages! You can curl up with a good book (enjoy our library), watch a movie by the fire, play on the beach, or visit the many area attractions.
