From the 2 sofas in the living room you can read peacefully, light a fire (on cool nights or in the winter), or watch a movie.
If you chose to cook, you don't have to be away from the outdoor views and can enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen to prepare happy hour for the beach or to put on the salmon for dinner. The glass doors off the living room take you to the deck, where you'll likely enjoy most meals. (The pelicans usually provide fascinating entertainment.)

About Lauri Pastrone
John and Mary Pastrone bought Pelican 75 in the 1960s so their 3 young sons could enjoy beach weekends and escape the heat of the San Jose area. Today, a 3rd generation of grandchildren enjoy the same surroundings their parents did 40 years ago. The property is currently managed by Lauri Pastrone, one of John and Mary's three daughters-in-law.
Lauri Pastrone purchased this Condo in 1968
Why Lauri Pastrone chose Santa Cruz County
It's the ideal location at Pajaro Dunes. Quiet and private... in between the ocean and the river... with massive views of the ocean, river, and sand dunes. And it's ground level so that families can be indoors and out but still be together. We have upgraded and updated over the past 5 years, including 2 full master bathrooms with dual showers, new furniture and many extras. And we have the best cleaning team in Pajaro Dunes.
What makes this Condo unique
Fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.... from kitchen gear to beach gear... all you have to bring is your food and clothing.

Comfortable and peaceful
We spent another new year here and loved it! The weather this year was perfect and we enjoyed some time on the deck. Living arrangements are very comfortable. Our toddler had fun watching the children’s DVDs and using the beach toys. This year we also enjoyed the fireplace! We hope to make this a family tradition and would love to come back to this home every year!
Very nice vacation time and gorgeous beach
Spent 4 days enjoying the beach with the family at Pelican 75. Couldn’t have been easier. Very close to the Pajaro River and short walk to beach. Enjoyed watching all the birds and sunrises from the kitchen/family room. Went to beach every evening to watch the sunset! What a beautiful place! Hope to return soon!
Awesome condo for family & friends! 2nd time we've been here and love it more each time!
Beautiful peaceful dune setting, magnificent view, close to beach, cozy and well equipped
We absolutely loved our stay at Pelican 75. The place is in a tranquil dune setting surrounded by water and offering some of the lovliest sunrises and sunsets the beach has to offer. We found the house well equipped with all necessary basics, nicely renewed bathrooms, a comfortable living room and, with the pull-out bed and a comfy sofa, suitable for our party of 6 (3 grown ups, a 2-, 6- and 8-yr-old). Acesss is quick from the highway, yet the place is secluded and in a very relaxing setting. It was great to have a quick beach access (the back deck leads to a walkway and the dunes, and from there it is a short walk to the seashore). Really great vacation place and I highly recommend the owner who was helpful, polite and professional and just a joy to work with. Thanks!!
Great weekend away!
Had a great weekend, thank you for sharing this beautiful spot with us.
Tranquil and beautiful!
My husband, three and four year old and I loved our stay at Pajaro Dunes. It was incredible stepping outside to the beach and being able to see the river and the ocean waves right from the property. We saw pelicans, seals and sea otters right from the beach and loved the privacy and peacefulness of the area. It was so hard to leave after our four nights there. Thank you!
Pajaro Dunes is a gated beach community of the Central California Coast. Monterey and Carmel and 17-Mile Drive are all under 40 minutes away to the South. Santa Cruz is 20 minutes north. Watsonville offers all the shopping and restaurants a traveller needs should you never want to leave the beach town. The beaches of Pajaro Dunes are surprisingly private. Many sunsets can be taken in quietly and with a feeling of solitude. The bird watching at Pajaro is known worldwide. It is a protected site for nesting of Snowy Plovers. It's easy to spend lazy days on the beach and venture out to Phil's for just caught salmon and snapper in the evening. Or, enjoy Mexican food at The Whole Enchilada at Moss Beach, both under 15 minutes door-to-door.
