READ THE REVIEWS FROM OUR PREVIOUS GUESTS... THEY DESCRIBE PELICAN 75 BETTER THAN WE CAN!!!!

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.)

The master bedroom, with California king bed and television, has its own full bath. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, sofa and trundle bed. There is a blow-up double mattress. Washer and dryer. Electric grill. Internet access.

The community includes tennis courts, basketball courts and lots of riding, walking paths.

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 Watsonville

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Pelican 75. You have a great place at a beautiful location. My family and I hope to make more trips there in the future.

Great views, nice, clean place, easy access to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. The place is cute and clean (and a bit more updated IRL than I believe the pictures online depict), and the views of the canal and beach are great. Plus with a little one in tow, we appreciated not having any stairs to climb. The beach, which is clean and not packed with people, is right outside your door. The property is conveniently located close to all the places we wanted to visit (Carmel, Monterey, and Capitola). Looking back, my only wish is that we had booked one more night so we'd have more time to enjoy the beach and to hang out at this place. Also, a note to any photographers, you'll get great pics of the sun rising at this property.

Great vacation spot , beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartments is wonderful, a great place for a family. The kitchen is very nice, well equipped and a central place in the apartment to entertain and cook. The deck provides a wonderful view into the quietness of the dunes and the slough canal, ideal to watch wildlife or just reading a book. Can only recommend this vacation home.

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.
