About The Owner

I was born in Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.My family & I have always loved the ocean & love being near it. We have been enjoying Pajaro Dunes for more than 30 years & have been owners since 1992. We enjoy using our condo and also renting it out to others when we are not able to use it.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1992

Why The Owner chose Central Coast

We love the peace & quiet of Pajaro Dunes. It's easily accessible to our home in Palo Alto & is just 15 miles south of Santa Cruz & 30 miles north of Monterey. We love walking on the beach & around the property.

What makes this condo unique

Peaceful, secure gated community. Beautifully landscaped common grounds. Beautiful beach & dunes. Close proximity to our home & to Santa Cruz & Monterey. Private deck. Basketball & tennis courts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

While driving out of the property and on to the highway, my wife requested that we plan to go back again for another stay! Many thanks to you and your wife for making your property available to us.

Great condo, great beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was clean and comfortable and the access to the beach was fantastic. We would definitely stay here again. We had activities planned in both Monterrey and Santa Cruz so it was a great location in between for us. The staff were extremely friendly and we had no problems with noise or neighbors. Great stay!

Pajaro Dunes

  • 5 of 5

A very beautiful setting on the coast. Our stay was enjoyable, the unit we stayed in was well appointed, very comfortable and just steps from the beach! We would put this on our list of places to return.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental was clean and well outfitted. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only thing missing is a BBQ.

- great beach access

- good WiFi which is important given the crappy Cell coverage in California (silicone valley fail)

- comfortable furnishings, nice kitchen, open concept, lots of windows

- quiet and respectful neighbours

- good security with friendly staff

Our only complaint would be that the door key required lots of fiddling to work in the lock. I'm not sure what the problem is but we shouldn't have to wait for the owner to receive a key that barely works by return mail to have our deposit returned. I'm sure this will be processed promptly though given our experience. He is very responsive and welcoming.

We have no hesitation in highly recommending this vacation rental.

Thank you for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the review. The lock on the front door has been replaced & now its very easy to open. We wait until the key is returned before returning the security deposit because if the key is not returned we charge a $10 fee to replace it. Charcoal barbecues are not allowed on the wooden decks by county ordinances.

Weekend stay on our way down the coast

  • 4 of 5

The place was adequate for our stay. However there are few minor things to look for. This community is pretty isolated with little to know shopping or convince stores close by but if this is what you're looking this could be great. WIFI is spotty throughout the house. The master bath faucet is very wierd almost lime it's broken but you can still turn the water on and off just tricky to figure out. The kitchen island GFI receptacle and the master bedroom receptacle by the closet do not work this wasn't a huge deal but something to mindful of.

Owner's Response: Pajaro Dunes is a secluded very peaceful beachfront area. Yes there are no supermarkets in the area. But all our guests receive a welcome packet which lists local supermarkets, restaurants, etc. The master bath faucet needed to be tightened, which has been done. To activate the GFI outlet in the master bedroom you need to turn on the wall switch. There are at least 10 other GFI outlets in the condo. The homeowners association is working on improving the Wifi reception. We agree that her comments & issues were all very minor.
