Guestbook comments from the owner

Cori,

We had a great time in Pajaro. The house and location were spectacular.

The house worked really well. It was generously supplied with games, computer, wireless and kitchen supplies and basics.



It may sound strange, but one of the best things about the house was the lack of rules. In many such paces one is confronted with lists of "thou shall ..." And "thou shall not....". It was of some comfort to come to a place where matters were largely based on a trust that reasonable people were going to act reasonably. Thank you.

Wonderful experience...

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at thus clean, well kept home. The hit tub had a slight issue and the staff and owner worked so dillegently to resolve it, including the owner driving down from the bay area first thing in the morning. I was very pleased. We will definitely come again. Also extremely well prepared kitchen and home.

Owner's Response: Oh that's great! "The family was wonderful and respected our home, keeping it clean and treating it as they would their own. They were patient with our new hot tub's technology snaffoo and were an absolute pleasure to interact with throughout our communications. We would love to have them again in any of our vacation homes." Dominique and Greg

Absolutely beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Pajaro Dunes for the last 10 years and this is by far the most beautiful home we've stayed at. We've never stayed at the same place twice, but we'll definitely be returning to this one.

Lovely well outfitted house!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations staying here for a long weekend. I can honestly say this was probably the best outfitted house - never once did we say "I wish it had..." as we usually do. The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with tons of utensils, plates, appliances (slow cooker, rice cooker, several 9x13 glass pans). Was great to also have separate quarters for noisier members of the family. We will come back!

EXCELLENT Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of my girlfriends and I took a long weekend for a "Girl's Getaway" to this AMAZING house!! The views are spectacular, especially from the hot tub! There were 10 of us total and we still had more than enough space! The ice machine was a wonderful added bonus. All we needed to bring was food and clothes. This house has it ALL! We visited Santa Cruz and Capitola which are both short drives from Watsonville. Next time we'll go the other direction toward Monterey. We all HIGHLY recommend going to Phil's Fish Market. Each of us got something different to eat and EVERYTHING was out of this world delicious! The location and enviroment of this house is so fantastic. The beach was great! A couple girls never even left the house the entire weekend. We're longing to go back. We made amazing memories full of love and laughter that will last a lifetime.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a very nice location - right on the beach and in a good neighborhood.

Good things - hot tub, spacious deck and rooms, plenty of utensils in the kitchen, frequent patrols by on-site security, rental company courteous and responsive.

Not so good - the only way to the upstairs bedrooms is via outside staircases, shower in the guest house (above garage) had very weak water pressure, can't park an SUV in the garage (the garage door hangs down and needs repair).

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. The homes at Pajaro dunes have very unique architecture with no two homes being alike. In talking with the original owners who built the home in 1966 they told me that the reason for the outside covered staircase was that they wanted maximum interior space and not to be used for the stairs. The garage is also very unique as it is a curved design and was not designed for today’s SUV’s. With the low ceiling the garage door does not retract flush to the ceiling. We will also be looking into the issue regarding the water pressure in the guest house bathroom. Thank you again for your comments.
