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

We very much enjoyed our stay at your home in Pajaro Dunes over Christmas. A beautiful setting in a comfortable home. Thanks for making it available to us. Best wishes.

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!

WE had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Pajaro Dunes. The door lock was a little challenging to open, some graphite might help. Beds were comfortable, shower/tub in second bedroom could use a bath mat in the tub. Overall the condo was very clean, nicely decorated, pleasant atmosphere.

We would recommend the rental to our friends.

Great place! Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this condo. Great location halfway between Monterrey and Santa Cruz. The condo was very clean and comfortable. I slept better than I usually do in my own bed! Only regret was that we didn't have enough time to spend at the condo since we were so busy with lots of fun things in that vicinity. I would go back!

Great, clean condo right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

This condo on the beach was all it claimed to be. Very clean, well stocked with plenty of bedding, towels, dishes and just a few steps to the beach. Dealing with the owner ,Howard ,a pleasure from beginning to end. He answered all emails in under 24 hours, was pleasant, true to his word and returned our security deposit quickly. If you are looking for a quiet retreat, look no further. This place is tucked away from it all. You will have to drive to get to restaurants, food store, etc. Nothing within walking distance. As a matter of fact, you drive thru strawberry fields to get to the condos-best strawberries we ever ate! We use Verizon Wireless as our cell phone provider and while we could call out and receive calls, getting service to access the internet was difficult. This condo complex is about getting away from it all.....and for that, its perfect. Thanks Howard, you made our first experience with Home Away a good one.

Perfect Family GetAway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here! The ground level deck was perfect with small children. We walked around and found out being in this I Building was the best. Quiet and peaceful. The condo was clean. Only one little glitch with check-in time; we thought it was 3 and the cleaning people weren't done till about 4:15. We look forward to staying here again. Also, Howard was very friendly and accommodating when we reserved. Can't wait to book again!

Nice place, but unexpected charge.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is nice and right by the beach. We really enjoyed our stay. However, a week and half after we checked out, we received an email stating that their maid noticed an oil stain on one of the comforters and then proceeded to charge our credit card for $40. I'm confident we didn't leave a stain. I didn't realize we needed to inspect the condo to that detail, upon check in. We've stayed at several vacation rentals and have never had a problem like this. I'm sad to say that we wouldn't rent this condo again.

Owner's Response: Our unit is always inspected before each new guest arrives. The same maid inspected the unit before & after this guest arrived & left.After the guest left, she saw an oil stain on the master bed comforter that was not there when the guest arrived. So obviously it happened during the guests stay. Sadly she denied causing it & wrote this review.
