Pajaro Dunes house description

Where 'ocean view’ and 'beachfront' are understatements!!!

This beachfront home has stunning architecture, views and location. With a somewhat funky, eclectic design and decor, it’s perfect for family, friends, or business getaways. Its many nooks and turns draw smiles from adults and kids alike.

The kitchen/dining/living area is open and spacious with large windows facing the ocean. There are three very separate bedrooms, each with ocean views and sliding glass doors to patio or atrium areas. From inside or on the decks, you can enjoy a panoramic ocean view from Santa Cruz to Monterey with miles of blue sea, birds, otters, and occasionally porpoises and migrating whales.

Outdoor areas: there is an atrium deck off the kitchen/living room that is a lovely, protected area for sunning, BBQ, or dining. The decks off the living room and dining room are perfect for taking in the ocean air and views.

Pajaro Dunes is a private gated community with 1½ miles of sandy beaches on Monterey Bay between Santa Cruz and Monterey. Along with full views of the Monterey Bay and the coastal mountains, Pajaro Dunes has 24-hour security, walking/biking/jogging trails, professional tennis courts, playing fields, volleyball and basketball courts (only a 5-minute walk to the nearest courts/fields). It’s a short drive to Santa Cruz (30 min), Monterey and Carmel (45 min) for restaurants, famous golf courses, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park, or shopping.


The bedrooms are spread out and each have private or shared bathrooms, TV’s and ocean views:
Bedroom 1 – Master Suite: King bed, private bathroom with separate shower, bathtub, 26” TV with cable and DVD, ocean view, glass door to lower patio
Bedroom 2: King bed, adjacent full bathroom with washer/dryer, 14” TV with cable, ocean view, glass door to lower patio
Bedroom 3/Family Room: 5 twin beds (2 trundles + 1 twin), private full bathroom, 37” TV with cable, VHS video and DVD, glass door to interior deck area, ocean and valley/mountain views

Built in 1978 and featured in ads and home design magazines, this ~1,800 square foot home has a bit of an 80’s vibe and its homey, comfortable feeling will melt all your troubles away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1989

              About the owner: That's us on the deck for July 4th. Out on the beach, we like to boogie board, skim board, jog or play games... or just walk, collect shells, sit, or read. Always something for everyone!

              Why the Owner Chose Pajaro Dunes:
              Our family started out by renting at Pajaro Dunes in the early 70's. We loved the diverse architecture of the houses, the wooden path boardwalks that wound throughout the resort, and the expansive, secluded beach. We felt it was a perfect place for escaping the hustle and bustle, easy to get to, and close to Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Carmel. We knew instantly that this was the house for us. It has such a fun, beach feel with all the wood and windows... It's cozy, bright and open, and has jaw-dropping views that instantly take you away. Its architecture with its nooks and turns make it a playfully interesting place.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It's such a quick walk to the beach (1 minute) or the tennis courts (5 minutes), and there are so many paths to walk on to view the ocean and homes. There are many options for driving: a 15-minute drive into Watsonville for groceries or restaurants, Aptos/Capitola/Santa Cruz (within 30 min) for shopping, entertainment, restaurants, golf... And in the other direction, Monterey and Carmel and all they have to offer. There's also kayaking on the Elkhorn Slough about 10 minutes away.
