Pajaro Dunes house description

Pajaro Dunes is a gated community of custom homes with diverse architecture located on Sunset Beach half way between Santa Cruz and Monterey.

This freshly remodeled 1,600 square foot beach front home has four bedrooms, three baths and an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean.

The remodel, completed in early 2008, includes a new kitchen with maple cabinets and granite counters. The house is very well insulated which makes for cozy evenings in front of the new Rais wood burning stove.

A great room with kitchen, dining, and living room is on the upper floor along with two master bedrooms. The kitchen includes all the essentials for basic cooking and baking. In the evening you can enjoy a movie on the 50” plasma HDTV.

This home is ideal for two couples and up to eight children. (We recommend no more than six adults.) The two upstairs bedrooms have both valley and ocean views. Each has its own compact bathroom with tub/shower.

The downstairs is designed for children; The south bedroom has four twin beds (one is a trundle.) The north bedroom has two twin beds and two trundle beds. A compartmented bathroom with shower shares space with a new washer and dryer. The covered entry area has plenty of space to store beach toys.

The area abounds in bird life, and more than a hundred species winter on Monterey Bay. Depending on the season, dolphins and sea otters frequent the waters, and on rare occasions one may spot breaching or spouting whales.

There is a driveway with on site parking for two or three cars. (The majority of beach front homes at Pajaro Dunes are reached by a long boardwalk). The tennis courts are a short walk from the house. There is an on site spa with masseuses who make house calls.

                    Great ocean front beach house. House just as described in ad. Jerry is very easy to work with. The view from the beach house is amazing. The house is well stocked with pots and pans everything you need to cook family meals except the food. The grocery store is not that far about 6 miles away where you can also rent red box movies. I would highly recommend this beach house to friends.

                    "This was a great rental. Found it through VRBO and the price was right for the 9 of us ladies, we were pleasantly surprised on how roomy it was for sleeping. Nice upgrades through most of the house with spectacular views. Dining table was big enough for all of us to eat together and play games. Nice big screen TV for movies which we could all view with no problem. The owner recommended things to bring and had an excellent contract with the best detail I've ever read. All of us would go there again together or with our families. It was clean, had comfortable beds, front loading washer and dryer, and was quiet."

                    Indeed this updated vacation house is able to accommodate many guests comfortably. With an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and windows to take advantage of it, the water can be seen from nearly anyway inside. The deck is great with a ramp to the outside. There's also ample parking on the property for 3-4 cars. Descriptions are not exaggerated. This beach home is the most thoroughly equipped we've ever rented with everything imaginable to enhance a worry-free vacation. The variety of kitchen equipment, implements and small appliances plus the well-stocked pantry and fridge make cooking a joy. The bedrooms were furnished with comfortable beds, ample bedding for all weather, stylish decor, individual thermostats, hangers & hampers in the closets and could be used in flexible combinations for adults and children. Bathrooms had plenty of towels and lots of extras such as night lights, hair dryers, tooth brush holders and soap dishes plus over-the-faucet racks for shower items. Paper products of all sorts are supplied as is everything needed for the laundry and kitchen cleaning. For children there's a variety of beach toys, puzzles and games plus a TV downstairs. We found the home was clean and easy to care for. The lovely artwork is a bonus! For any problems or questions the owner is readily accessible by phone. Our two week stay was as perfect as we had hoped and negotiations were very pleasant.

                    Dear Jerry, I wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed your beach house! It was PERFECT! It is such a gorgeous home and so tastefully decorated. We have stayed at many, many beach houses over the years, and never have we stayed in a place that so perfectly exemplifies our sense of personal style and preference. It is elegant and simple; it really looks like something out of Martha-Stewart-meets-Anthropologie-meets-Sunset-Magazine. All of our friends felt the same way. We decided that we will have to make this an annual trip and that we cannot imagine another beach house that could be better-suited to our needs. The view is stunning, location ideal, and amenities phenomenal (right down to the baby gates, booster chair, and Pack ‘n’ Play crib for our two-year-old). Thank you, thank you for such a relaxing, perfect weekend. We loved your place. I hope you had an equally relaxing, enjoyable holiday weekend! We will definitely be in touch again about renting your home for another beach getaway. All the very best,Nicole and Crew

                    What a wonderful beach house! It was perfect for two families with five kids. The owners have thought of every detail from a fully equipped gourmet kitchen to sand toys for the kids. The view was amazing and we so enjoyed watching the pelicans fly by, dolphins jumping through the waves and even the sea lion who ventured onto the beach. We can't wait to go back!

                    My wife and I enjoyed staying in this 4BR/3BA house right on the ocean with our 2 children. The views are truly 180 degrees and we enjoyed many a sunset on the deck. The kitchen is newly remodeled and the hardwood floors are nice. We stayed in September and the beaches were absolutely empty except for the rare jogger, dog walker, or beachcomber. We would stay here again in the future.

                    WOW! WHAT A LOVELY BEACH HOUSE WITH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU OR YOUR CHILDREN WOULD NEED. BEDS ARE ALL COMFORTABLE, MODERN AND KEPT VERY CLEAN. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE. WE WERE A PARTY OF 10 AND WERE VERY COMFORTABLE. THE VIEW IS EXCELLENT AND ALL YOU WILL NEED IS JUST BEACH TOWELS AND FOOD, TO COZY UP TO THE SUN, SAND AND SUNSETS.

                    Our extended family just returned from a perfect five days at this charming beach house. My favorite experience was watching the full moon set into the ocean, with my 4 year old grandson. Recent remodelling has provided a modern, user-friendly kitchen and also opened the entire living area to the spectacular 180-degree views. A large deck is perfectly situated for sunning, on the south side out of the wind. And a nearby sandy play area is great for young children. Both families and couples will enjoy their vacations here.
