Overview

About the property

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

This is a very unique place built right up to Sunset state beach. Our property runs right onto the sandy beach and includes the breakwater barrier. This private location with the Pacific Ocean sounds, smells and views is our biggest attraction. The coastal commision no longer allows development this close to the ocean.

It is in PAJARO DUNES which is a gated community on a mile and a half of sun-drenched, white sandy beaches on a secluded strip of the magnificent Monterey Bay coastline. Nestled among the soft rolling hills of the Pajaro Valley, it is a private community of exclusive luxury homes, townhouses and condominiums. Designed by some of America's foremost architects, PAJARO DUNES is a place where man has accepted the challenge to preserve the natural beauty of the land. Each beach home blends into the seascape as if it had been planted and grew there. And each property offers its own spectacular view - from tumbling surf to the serene vista of the Pajaro Valley. PAJARO DUNES just might be the experience you've been seeking!

This is a Fantastic Oceanside Beach condo. The main living area is on the upper level and is equipped to handle large groups for dinner and entertaining. It is ideal for quiet parties and family reunions. All of the furnishings are 'beachy' as is the decorating. Then, there's that view..... from the main living area you can see from Monterey to Santa Cruz with sunsets right in the middle. Whales and Dolphins and Sea Otters abound. You can watch the fishing boats and surfers or you can just watch and listen to the waves pounding in below.

What our place contains:

1. Fully furnished kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances, pots and pans, toasters, microwaves, blenders, mixers, cork screws and much, much more.

2. All the linens and towels that 13 people can use in a week and then an extra set if you need them.

3. TV's and a DVD players, Stereo and board games. Washer and dryer and a few beach toys.

4. A coleman propane unit for BBQ's and an electric grill.

5. A wood or prestolog burning fireplace.

What the area contains:

SUN, SAND and BEACHES

Golf tennis and hiking

Charters and fishing/sailing/boating

Beautiful view, great for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our son's & daughter's families (5 college age grandchildren). We were able to put the 2 tables together to make a long one. Wished we had a 2nd oven. Needed more kitchen towels, just used some bath hand towels. The beds were a little on the firm side. Plenty of towels, good size refrigerator, kitchen well stocked (except no cookie sheets) for that many people.

Wonderful Beachside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this vacation rental. The view is unbeatable and the layout of the condo worked well for our family. At one point we had 9 adults and 5 kids in the unit and we were all comfortable. Everyone loved staying here. We watched whales frolic in the ocean right off the point, walked for miles on the beach, boogey boarded, made sand castles, played tennis, cooked great meals in the well stocked kitchen (needs a cookie sheet though), and drove to Monterey one day to eat out. The owners were easy to deal with, just sometimes seemed a bit slow to respond to my emails. I am a bit impatient though.

WE had a great time and everyone hopes to return next year.

Awesome location, Awesome view to match.

  • 4 of 5

Had a girls weekend for 13 gals. There were enough beds for 12 and then there was the couches. Enough bathrooms to support all of us too, so that is saying something. However, one of them only had a shower the size you would expect on a cruise ship. Also, be very careful about the hot water, it comes out scalding. I did get burned when I went for my first shower....so be forewarned. I cannot give the place a 5 just for that....a quarter turn on the shower faucet went from warm to scalding. Beds were comfortable enough. There was definitely enough towels for all of us ladies, so that was great.

Ooh, one tidbit, they have trolley/carts out by the parking lot for anyone to use to transport your luggage and groceries from your car to the condos, so utilize them. They worked out great!

The view was amazing! From the master bedroom downstairs you just follow the path and climb the stairs over the dune and boom, THE BEACH! From the living room we would watch the pods of dolphins swim by and jump out of the water, constantly! Occasionally we would see a lone sea lion, that alone was amazing. Times like those make me miss being so close to the beach. I do warn you, the view was amazing, but it was awfully bright, I wore sunglasses indoors. They have blinds, but who would miss out on that view.

Since it was all girls, copious amounts of wine and margaritas were consumed. The condo had more than enough wine and margarita glasses for us all, so no need for any paper or plasticware for us.

We also chose to have all our meals at the condo. There was definitely more than enough pots and pans. We had taco night (the real Mexican version with all the trimmings), pancakes, bacon, eggs for breakfast. We also were able to make 2 types of pasta dishes for dinner. Hopefully the menu gives you the idea of how many pots and pans and baking sheets we had to work with. So the kitchen really worked out for us.

I recommend this condo if you plan on just staying on the beach and not venturing elsewhere. The local grocery store and Target were a quick 10 minute drive away, but the main cities are a bit further.

Now for the owners. They were great to deal with! Quick responses to questions and requests. I flew in from North Carolina to meet with my girls traveling from SoCal so I beat them there by 2 hours. So the owners politely accommodated my request for an earlier check-in. Mind you no one stayed right before we got there so the place was ready. Thank you Betty!

What a View!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is an excellent location for a large family reunion with young children. The beach is sandy and has very few visitors. The kids had a great time collecting shells after the tide went out.

Nice, relaxing condo with everything!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, we were awed by the 180 views of the ocean, the sounds and the closeness of the water to this condo. It is an the end of the strip so it is pretty private and it was great to go out to the water daily and enjoy the beach and seals that visited. We also had the rare chance of seeing a whale that washed up shore during our stay, collected sea shells and sand dollars and enjoyed the beach every day. We will definitely stay again. The accomodations were good, and there were plenty of towels and linens and we really enjoyed creating the wonderful memories at this condo. The kitchen supplied everything we needed to take care of everyone. Thank you for sharing your wonderful condo with us.
