About the property

2 Bedroom 1.5 Bathroom On The Beach

Wanting to get away from the heat? Head to the beach for sun filled days in the sand and central coast breezes.

Kids can safely come and go all day long to the beach, just footsteps away. Pack your imagination for building world class sandcastles. Or boogie boarding in the never ending surf or throw a football or fly a kite.

This distinctive 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath beach condo has just undergone an extensive remodel and updating. All surfaces have received a creative designer's touch.

Bright hardwood flooring in the open space living/dining areas, bedroom carpeting, GE kitchen appliances, attractive doors and trim, plantation shutters on all windows, Kohler bathroom fixtures, contemporary paint colors and beautiful mood setting lighting are all new.

Bedrooms are exquisitely appointed with new beds of differing firmness, hi-thread count cotton linens, providing uncompromising comfort for your beach vacation. Each bedroom has a built-in closet with generous space, a dresser and a large decorative wall mounted mirror.

The living room has generous amounts of natural light with immediate south beach views towards Monterey Bay and east views to the slough, ideal for bird watching.

The kitchen counter-tops are DuPont Zodiac surfaces in fresh surf white and celestial blue, bringing the ocean indoor. The cabinets are stocked with kitchen utensils and cookware for your vacation culinary needs. New GE appliances and a deep stainless steel sink, all shine under the accent lighting.

Lounging on the couch with a book in front of the wood burning fire place is totally acceptable after having walked the entire length of the 3 mile beach and back or having played multiple sets of tennis with your family and friends. The living room provides gazing opportunities to the inviting beach outside.

A 47" flat-screen LED TV over the fireplace is connected to a Blue-ray DVD player and hi-definition cable service. Although unlikely when on vacation, if you need to stay connected to the office, the Pajaro Dunes resort is set up for complimentary wireless guest internet service for non-streaming needs.

Grab your camera and binoculars for spectacular nature experiences, birding and beach combing.

Or pack your clubs and enjoy world class golfing at nearby Pebble Beach or Pasatiempo - Santa Cruz.

Bring your road bikes for coastal cycling into Aptos, climbing out of Watsonville to Mt Madonna or cycle though Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach.

Enjoy days trips to Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk & Amusements.

Spend a few solitary hours surf fishing on the beach for perch, halibut, smelt and striped bass.

This beach condo has it all. Stylish comfort, romantic opportunities, fun for the family and close to many amenities.

Parking is available with walk up access. Trolleys are provided for unloading your car. Within minutes, you'll be settled in and relaxing.

About Paul O'Neill, family member

I'm Paul O'Neill, son-in-law of the owner Barbara Black. Barbara bought the beach property in '72 and my wife and her siblings spent their teenage summers at Pajaro. I now run the unit for our family after extensively remodeling the unit in the fall of 2012.

Paul O'Neill, family member purchased this condo in 1972

Why Paul O'Neill, family member chose Central Coast

Living in San Francisco, we cannot get down to use the unit as frequently as we would like. But when we do manage to get away to the beach, its hard for us to leave. Our 5 year old son just loves it there, stopping to stop to talk to the beach fisherman to see what they have caught that day. So we hope you will enjoy the beach experience as we do.

The condo had a beautiful view and was steps from the beach. The sunsets were remarkable. There was hiking and Caramel and Monterey close by. There was something for everyone. The condo was well equipped and had everything we needed to eat in.

Beautiful, unforgetable River and Ocean Bay views from Pelican 64 Feb27-March9 2016

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Pelican 64 for 11days and completely enjoyed the quiet beautiful setting just a short stroll down the boardwalk from the ocean bay. The condo was exactly as described. Fresh, very clean and beautifully updated. Exceptional wildlife viewing from the outside patios as well as from the inside living room. Fantastic beach combing along the river, around dunes and ocean bay produced sand dollars, sea glass, unique rocks and shells. We were very happy with the well stocked condo and the attention we received from the owners. We had a few questions when we first arrived which were promptly answered by Paul who made us feel at home and free to contact him any time. Pajaro Dunes is a great place to stay and we would recommend it for family and couples wanting to get away to a private quiet area along the CA coast. We walked for miles on the beach each day and spotted seals and whales during our visit. The weather can be iffy during March so bring a mix of clothing. We were amazed at how close we were to Capitola and Santa Cruz to the north and Monterey, Pebble Beach, Carmel and Big Sur to the South. When we were not on the beach we spent our time exploring these areas and loved all the farmers markets and our drives along Hwy 1. We loved hiking the shoreline trails as well as inland trails we found in and around Watsonville area as far north as Mavericks Half Moon Bay and south as Big Sur. We could have gone into San Fransisco which was only 60 some miles away but ran out of time. We love the outside so spent most of our time walking, hiking and biking around these areas. (Bike rentals are easily found) We noticed there is much shopping but chose not to spend our vacation inside stores. Watsonville is a a quiet, non tourist town and Pajaro Dunes is located on the ocean bay shoreline so unless you spend your day on the beach you should plan on driving to the above mentioned close locations for other activities. We were very happy to have pristine time in this area and leave the tourist hot spots for day trips.

Owner's Response: So glad you had an action packed but relaxing vacation at Pajaro Dunes. It was also very nice to actually meet and chat with you when we had to replace the washer-dryer. Thank you so much for the wonderful gift of the driftwood oar you found on the beach. And your review will be very helpful for other guests contemplating staying at our unit or at Pajaro Dunes in general. Come visit again.
