About Pajaro Dunes Resort

We live about an hour from our beach condo and love to stay when we can- but that is not often enough, so we choose to share this special place with guests. This is a perfect location on Monterey Bay Beach, conveniently located a short distance between Santa Cruz and Monterey, yet away from the crowds. Enjoy!

Pajaro Dunes Resort purchased this condo in 2005

Why Pajaro Dunes Resort chose Watsonville

Pajaro Dunes is a Monterey Bay area secret- a quiet gated community, very accessible from the San Francisco/San Jose Bay areas yet feels much further away. Watching the waves on the endless beach and hearing the roar of the surf is relaxing and restful. For more action filled days, its an easy trop to either Santa Cruz or Monterey.

What makes this condo unique

We are well positioned close to both Santa Cruz and Monterey with endless options for all ages! You can curl up with a good book (enjoy our library), watch a movie by the fire, play on the beach, or visit the many area attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to write and say THANK YOU for such a wonderful unit in Shorebird! We have stayed at Pajaro Dunes 4 times, and your unit was our favorite by far. It was very kid-friendly, everything was decorated beautifully, and we loved your couch. =) We all had such a wonderful time. Our kids are still talking about it and asking when we are going back.

Pajaro Dunes stay

  • 4 of 5

Shorebirds 115 has a great set up for two families. The master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed, and the "kids" room worked well with 2 sets of bunk beds. The second bedroom was nice, but the bed is a little small. Linens and towels were of good quality and plentiful. The family room was large and provided plenty of space for us to relax when we weren't on the beach. Great TV, wifi, and Apple TV set up along with iHome speakers/docking stations throughout the condo. The kitchen was well stocked with the cooking tools we needed.

The front desk staff were friendly and welcoming, as was the gate attendant. I appreciated the call earlier in the day saying that the condo was ready for us in advance of the 4pm check in.

Very nice view from the master bedroom and one of the two decks off the main room.

We would definitely stay at Shorebirds 115 again.

Better than we imagined - photos did not do justice.

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a wonderful 3 days at this property. What a relaxing and wonderful time we all had. Very surprised to have the fabulous TV and wifi coverage, didn't expect that at all. The adult kids were very happy. The condo was very clean and well stocked with towels, sheets, etc. We needed nothing except our clothes and food.

The condo was spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed including a wine opener, we had

forgotten to pack one. The view was spectacular and sleeping to the sounds of the ocean was delightful. We appreciated having beach chairs and fun beach toys for the children. We are already planning our next trip back. Thank you so much for making it possible for us to have a fabulous finish to 2015.

Wonderful condo

  • 4 of 5

Loved this condo. Very spacious with everything you needed. I'm not a hotel lover, being that I get claustrophobic, so this condo was great choice. Bed in master bedroom was very comfortable and I slept so good the whole stay.. Nice view from back balcony too..

A great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

My family, including 4 kids and in-laws had a great time in this condo. It was spacious enough, with lots of charm, and a great location.

I appreciated that they had so many things available - like a kite, beach chairs, bbq, games, and more.

The one kids room, with bunk beds was a hit, plus, they loved having the toys and books to look through.

The only drawback was that with kids, they love to run around, which isn't great when there are people below, above, and on the sides...but they got a lesson in learning to walk quietly! The beach more than made up for it! My oldest son has now proclaimed that he MUST live at the beach!

The kitchen was equipped with everything needed and the living space was comfortable and inviting.
