                                                      Fabulous beach house

                                                      Elizabeth H.

                                                      We loved the house and had a great stay. The fire pit was put to good use making smores. I had not been to Pajaro dunes in thirty years and it was as a treat to take my kids. Of note, is that this house has drive up access (many homes don't) and it has an absolutely enormous three tiered back deck. Both upstairs master bedrooms were fabulous with modern bathrooms and views of the ocean. The two down stairs bedrooms with two twins were perfect for the kids who were thrilled to have their very own tv's in each room. We would absolutely stay here again. One last note: RENT WETSUITS in Capitola on your way to the house. O'Neil surf shop had rental wetsuits for all the kids along with nice boogie boards. Wow, do wetsuits make all the difference in terms of the number of hours your kids will stay in the water. Super saved our spring break trip and made us have to drag our kids out of the water at the end of the day.

                                                      Excellent Retreat Home

                                                      Michelle L.

                                                      This home is everything you need for a relaxing and fun vacation at the lovely Pajaro Dunes Resort. When we arrived, I immediately noticed how immaculate the home is. I was delighted to discover the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for meals, the beds are very comfortable (with a television in every room), and the bathrooms are updated with plenty of towels and storage. The icing on the cake is the quick access to the beach which is just across the residential street and down a flight of stairs. Our group included 4 adults and 3 teenagers. We all had plenty of room to spread out and relax, including sharing meals at the large dining table or lounging in the living area. The front windows and deck provide a nice view of the beach, and you can hear the beautiful sound of the ocean. I can't recommend this property enough for a family or group of friends looking for a beach getaway, and using this location as a base for exploring the nearby cities of Carmel and Monterey.

                                                      Great beach home for our vacation

                                                      Richard R.

                                                      What a nice escape we had. The home was in the perfect location with a quick walk to the beach. We were with a group and had plenty of space to hang out. The home was clean and well appointed and it was so nice to find a comfortable bed and private bath. We will definitely be back.

                                                      Fabulous home at the ocean

                                                      Debra R.

                                                      We stayed with a group of friends and had such a fabulous time. The home is spacious with a large living area and plenty of bathrooms for all. We loved how we could walk right down to the beach with such easy access. The home was very clean, with comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen. We can't wait to go back again to spend more time.

                                                      Beautiful home!

                                                      Barbara S.-

                                                      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! It was very comfortable and well cared for. We loved the close proximity to the water and really appreciated the parking in front of the house. We will definitely stay here again!

                                                      Very Upset/False Advertising

                                                      Marcy T.

                                                      We rented this house mainly due to fact it had a jacuzzi. When we arrived I checked to ensure it was warm and to my surprise there was no water in it. We called and they said the owner had drained it because it wasn't working. Well that would have been nice to know so that we could have possibly found another house even though we had booked this one almost 6 months ago. Last year we rented the same house but a few spots down and had access to the loft and garage AND it was cheaper! So when we called the property management people they said they dropped the ball and hadn't called to notify us and offered us tickets to the aquarium but we had already been to Monterey so we turned that down and then offered us a total of $150 our stay. Are you kidding me? If we wanted a house without a jacuzzi we would have rented last years house but thought we were upgrading this year. If this was my house I would ensure the renters where notified and fix the jacuzzi in a timely manner. Horrible and will not be renting here again from this property management in this area. The name of house should not include the word "Luxury" in its description.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      We're so sorry for the inconvenience! The part needed for the hot tub could not be obtained prior to your stay, and as a result we actually refunded Brian over $625 for this disappointment. We'll also update you shortly on further actions. We genuinely apologize.
