We invite you to kick back and relax in our beautifully remodeled Pajaro Dunes beach house. This artfully furnished home will not only treat you to a view of the Monterey Bay. You will also enjoy continuous entertainment provided by a variety of wildlife from a quiet inlet directly in front of the home and a flowering succulent garden all around the home.
The master suite, kitchen, dining room, living room and bath occupy the third floor, all providing lovely views and an open center looking down onto the second floor family area and wet bar. Decking on the second and third floor perimeters to enjoy the sea air while taking in the dune and ocean views. The main floor consists of 2 bedrooms a bath and laundry. There are televisions in 3 rooms including a wall mounted flat screen in the master. The “guest shed” outside in the BBQ area has fun for everyone including bocce ball set, tennis rackets, skim boards, a scooter, ice chest, kite and more for your use. Also enjoy a warm outdoor shower after playing on the beach!
Within the gates of Pajaro Dunes spend time walking the seemingly endless miles of beautiful beach, shore shopping for sea glass, sand dollars and other treasures. Each walk will be like a first with the ever changing tides, wildlife and shells to be enjoyed. Later in the day fire up the bbq and dine inside or out. Relax afterwords in the reclining teakwood chairs under the star lit sky.
If you can tear yourself away from Pajaro Dunes you will find yourself minutes from Capitola and Santa Cruz to the north where you can witness world class surfing and Carmel and Monterey to the south. Check out the following list of popular local attractions when planning your activities:

Wonderful Family Retreat
Wonderful Family Retreat
When we made our reservation with you through VRBO, we had high expectations for a restful family vacation in a beautiful setting with all the comforts of home. Our expectations were not only met, but exceeded! Your very comfortable and beautifully-situated property had everything we needed to enjoy the vacation we were hoping for and you thought of every detail. Thanks for your thoughtful management and your beautiful home!

Owner response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our home. Also, for the beautiful photos from your stay. Very much appreciated! Jody
Our family truly enjoyed this beautiful vacation home for a recent weekend getaway. Despite the rainy spring weather, we had a great time strolling along the wet sand; relaxing in the spacious, charmingly decorated house; and enjoying the great views from the large third-story windows. Jody was also very pleasant and accommodating during our conversations as we made arrangements. This house will now be our first choice for return visits to Pajaro Dunes.

From the beautiful home to the beauty of the sea.... Our family could not have asked for anything more. The amenities were top notch and the evening bbq's on the patio made this mini vacation one to go back to. Clean, very nicely decorated, upgraded appliances and large tubs. The views from the 3rd floor were spectacular. Roy and Jody were most gracious and our family loved the storage area of beach toys and Razor scooters. We can't wait to go back.

This home is clean, nicely furnished and designed beautifully. It clearly was recently renovated. The owners were extremely helpful and gracious, making sure they were available for questions. As with many of the homes at P. D., the most beautiful and lived in floor (view of ocean), which includes the dining room and kitchen, is up three flights of stairs. We didn't mind the exercise, but some people might find the climb hard.

The Perfect Family Getaway!
The Perfect Family Getaway!
Our family of five (including 3 children ages 7, 9 and 11) stayed here for three nights and had a fantastic time! Everything was as expected from the photos and description, and the beach was picture perfect. Jody and Roy were extremely helpful and professional and even went out of their way to stop by and unlock a closet of beach toys that we had accidentally locked ourselves. Thank you for a great time!

What a Fabulous House!
What a Fabulous House!
Booked this house for the 5 of us over Thanksgiving Holiday. Our kids are 2 teen girls and a 6 yr old boy. All had a great time. The two bdrms downstairs were perfect for the kids. Easy beach access, could even watch the sunset over the water from the window's or balconies of the house. House very comfortably furnished and plenty of all the necessities in the kitchen as well as plenty of linens and towels. We loved having a glass of late afternoon wine from the two Adirondack chairs off the second floor balcony. Jody, thank you so much. We will be back!
