Pajaro Dunes condo description

Pajaro Dunes is a private gated community with over 1 mile of flat open beach. The Pelican Point complex is at the far south end of the property. While the beach is not private, the access is primarily from Pajaro Dunes houses and condominiums. Because of the limited access the beach is never crowded and on some days you will be the only one there. A truly unique vacation spot on the Monterey Bay.

Pelican 51 is our private vacation home that we like to share with others. We only ask that our guests treat our vacation home as they would their own. SMOKING NOT ALLOWED, IF YOU SMOKE, GO ELSEWHERE. We have HD TV with streaming movies via a ROKU receiver, great comfortable beds, high end carpet, high speed wireless Internet, and a full kitchen. Of course all linens and things are provided. You just need to bring yourselves and some food if you want to cook a few meals. You will find kitchen cupboard full of spices and refrigerator with some basics. Unlike rental pool properties we try to keep basic kitchen things that you would like to find upon arrival. We only ask that if you use up any of the supplies you replace them so they are there for the next guests.

Our living room and master bedroom face southwest toward Monterey and our deck is sheltered from the wind. Our view pictures are taken from the living room. You can walk from the deck to the sand or via a walk almost to the ocean, almost as far as high tide will allow. Unlike most units at Pajaro Dunes Pelican 51 has secure HIGH SPEED WIFI.

If you are a bird watcher they are in abundance and there is a Snowy Plover sanctuary within sight. Check out our web site for more details or give us a call.

Unlike cheapo rentals, at Pelican 51 our unit is professionally cleaned after your departure. You do not need to strip beds or do any laundry. You need to take out trash and wash/put away dishes. Of course we do not expect to find sand tracked into the unit or spills left on our carpets. We will charge extra if the unit is not left in substantially the condition as it was when you arrived. Normal cleaning will be done by our housekeepers.

Keywords: Pajaro Dunes immaculate 3 bedroom condo Beach front, ground floor, with Ocean view High Speed WIFI. Only units with high speed internet offer streaming movies. We are one of a few.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1987

                  About the owner: We are Barbara and Del Riesenhuber. We are retired and divide our time between our homes in Los Gatos, CA and Dunes City, OR, with time left over for days at Pelican 51. We did not purchase Pelican 51 to be a rental, but just to have a place at the beach for enjoyment. Initially we took our 2 kids there and now it is mostly ourselves and grandkids. A few years ago we decided to rent unused time. Initially through a rental agency, but soon became disenchanted. We found the agencies, and we tried several, were not selective in who they rented to. While we did not experience a lot of damage the wear and tear was excessive. So we took over our own rental program and built our own web site and found that we had greater rental income than we were getting through agencies, and were able to control occupancy. With more rental properties going with web sites, we added sites with A1vacations and VBRO. Since we use Pelican 51 for our personal enjoyment, we keep it well stocked and furnishings up to date. We have comfortable beds. Barb likes to cook so we keep all of the basics in the cupboard and refrigerator. We found that agency operated rental units are cleaned out when guests depart. At Pelican 51 we keep the basics in constant stock. We do not attempt to compete with the low end rentals. You want cheap, go there. You want quality, come to Pelican 51. We do not allow more than 6 guests. More than that and we are back to wear and tear problems. Pelican 51 faces SW and sand hill on West side blocks a lot of the summer wind.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pajaro Dunes:
                  We rented at Pajaro Dunes for several years before purchasing Pelican 51. We got tired of not being 'at home' in the various rentals and wanted it to be the way we like things.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We go to Pelican 51 for relaxation. It is not as warm as our favorite spots in Maui, but only a 45 minute drive from Los Gatos. We enjoy Spring and Fall the most and rent during the summer months. We installed ROKU for streaming movies, etc. on the TV system. We also have free High Speed WIFI from our own router. (Most of Pajaro Dunes has low speed area wide WIFI that cannot be used for streaming, etc. and is not secure. Our system has no restrictions, is secure and 20 to 30 times faster.)
