Pajaro Dunes condo description

This spacious and beautifully remodeled Pajaro Dunes beach condo features luxurious accommodations in a perfectly tranquil setting. Ideally located on Monterey Bay between Santa Cruz and Carmel, this ocean oasis offers the perfect family getaway or relaxing adult haven.

The miles of private beach are perfect for building sandcastles, dolphin and whale-watching, or getting lost in a good book while listening to the waves crash on the shore. After a breathtaking sunset, cozy up around a beach bonfire and spot a shooting star beneath the sparkling night sky.

Outdoor enthusiasts love bird watching in the lagoons and hiking in the bluffs, and fitness mavens enjoy the tennis facilities and jogging through the nature paths.

The gorgeously furnished and remodeled 3-bedroom condo comfortably sleeps 8 adults. The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, direct access to the rear deck, a flat screen 32' television, and an extremely comfortable queen bed with plenty of storage. The 2 additional bedrooms offer a queen bed and 2 twin beds, respectively, both with televisions and DVD players. The sofa bed offers a brand new queen-sized memory foam mattress for extra sleeping accommodations.

All pillows, linens, towels and beach towels are provided, and the kitchen is fully supplied with dining-ware service for 12+, cookware, bakeware, tupperware, small appliances, a microwave, dishwasher, and a generously-stocked pantry with spices and oils for your convenience. The washer/dryer is also available to all guests. A full-size Weber charcoal barbecue is located on the rear deck for grilling, and the wood-burning fireplace is sure to add to nighttime ambiance.

Parking is plentiful, and is steps from the front door. The condo is on the ground floor, so there are no steps to climb up with groceries or luggage! It is situated on the north end of the building, and the sand is down a short, 30-second walkway and approximately 10 steps down.

Things to do around Monterey Bay:

For the curious – we encourage you to visit The Monterey Bay Aquarium, the Mission at Carmel or the Mission at San Juan Bautista, Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, or downtown Carmel.

For the connoisseurs – you'll want to schedule time for wine tasting at the many wonderful wineries found along the Monterey Coast (including Bonny Doon Vineyard, Soquel Vineyards, and Estancia), or satisfy your taste buds for fresh seafood and locally-grown vegetables at any one of a myriad of nearby restaurants and produce markets.

For the shoppers – there are literally hundreds of charming boutiques and stores throughout Santa Cruz, Capitola, Monterey, and Carmel.

For the sports enthusiasts – there is tennis, biking, and beach volleyball right here at Pajaro Dunes, plus some of Northern California's premier golf courses are an easy drive away.

For the contented – stretch yourself out on the warm beaches of Pajaro Dunes, enjoy the cool ocean breezes, and make sure you take in one of our serene suns

              Ski: welcome to ski lake tahoe

              not a lake, the lake with 7 world-class ski resorts.

              Not majestic mountains, mountains with jaw-dropping cliffs, serene glades and spectacular views of the lake. Not snow, 400 inches of snow a year that pile up into epic powder, tight corduroy groomers, raucous terrain parks and endless moguls.

              Not a place, the place.

              The place to ski and ride. Ride and ski. On blue bird days, in storms that hide your tracks run after run. Some people pine for warm sand and fruity drinks; Tahoe is the shredders paradise.

              Bring the kids. Teach them to ski in a place that will spark their passion for the snow. Thrill them with tubing, sledding and unbelievable views from mountain top trams and lodges.

              Recharge at night with happening casino entertainment, swank, cozy or rustic taverns and restaurants, dancing, music, local hangouts and events.

              Seven resorts, unlimited possibilities. The place will become part of you like it’s become part of us.

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: Hello, thank you for looking at our listing! We are the proud owners of Shorebirds #285 for the past 20 years and live and work in nearby San Jose, California. We chose Pajaro Dunes for its spectacular beauty and proximity to our primary residence. We can be at either location within a 50 minute drive. This has been a special place for our family and the memories and pictures we will forever cherish.

              Why the Owner Chose Pajaro Dunes:
              Pajaro Dunes is a gated beach community located near all of the towns that we enjoy to visit when we are not hanging out at our beach. We are close to Carmel, Carmel Valley, Pacific Grove, Santa Cruz, Big Sur, Monterey, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, and San Francisco. The private beach is truly and oasis and the sunsets are nothing short of spectacular!
