Property 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 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 seven 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 (one is a trundle) and a full bed. 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 boardwalk). The tennis courts are a short walk from the house.

Please note that our daily rates are for weekdays. Weekends are at the listed weekend rate.
