Overview

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 Watsonville

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.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this beautifully decorated and comfortable beach home. It was hard to leave the views, the long walks on the beach, and the cool weather, but we'll be back!

This home combines cleanliness and comfort with a breezy beach interior.

  • 5 of 5

The view from one window is of the river meeting the bay. The second window in the family room is a view of the beach and bay. The deck adds to the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a very comfortable manner. I highly recommend this home. Easy key access and security of the development were also pluses.

Tasteful, great beach access

  • 4 of 5

Stayed one week in June as a family of four (kids are 6 and 2). The condo is tasteful with great views of ocean, river, and birds from living room and deck. You can walk right out onto the beach, which was awesome. The beach was sparsely populated except by birds, and the surf was great for the kids-- there were clearly waves, but much less ferocious than many other Northern California beaches. It must be said the beach is cold... We were there in a heat wave and it was still chilly, but of course that's true all over the region. We found all the pots and pans we needed in the kitchen. The pantry was pretty bare of condiments, etc. compared to other rentals I've known, but as long as you bring what you plan to cook with or are prepared for a 10 minute drive to Watsonville, you'll be fine. It's also an easy day trip to Santa Cruz. Pajaro Dunes itself is a gated, staffed vacation development at the far edge of farm land. There are big houses there as well as the large condo complex this unit is part of. The condo complex seemed mostly rented by families of various ethnicities (which made my mixed-ethnicity family quite comfortable). On our last night there someone next door threw a party, but it wasn't too bad, and apart from that it was a very calm environment.
