About the property

7 bedroom, 4 bath house with a garage, across from beach stairs

NEW AND IMPROVED FOR 2017! We have completed renovations of our top floor and now offer the ENTIRE three story home for rent -- three floors, seven separate bedrooms with fourteen separate beds if you don't want to share. This is the home you've been looking for if your group of friends or family want to stay together in one property.


House 84 has it ALL... New, modern furniture and supplies for grownups -- ocean views -- a dedicated playroom full of toys and kid supplies -- drive-up convenience -- and the closest home to the beach access stairs!

This house has the ONLY electric vehicle (E.V.) charger in a rental home at Pajaro Dunes! Level 2 Clipper Creek charger on site for guest use.

SEVEN distinct bedrooms with flexible sleeping arrangements and FOUR full baths allow this home to be shared by one large family or multiple families. The maximum headcount day/night is 18 people, ALL included. No pets, no exceptions...

The bed configurations are (see photos):

• Second (main) floor master w/King and own bathroom

• Second (main) floor playroom with four twin bunks (4) and hall bathroom

• First floor (downstairs) bedroom with King shares downstairs hall bath

• First floor (downstairs) bedroom with King and two twin bunks shares downstairs hall bath

• Third floor (upstairs) bedroom with King shares one upstairs full bath

• Third floor (upstairs) "sitting room" bedroom has twin daybed, twin trundle, and has a view deck, shares one upstairs full bath

• Third floor (upstairs) "bunk nook" has two twin bunks and shares one upstairs full bath (no door - privacy curtain)

Note the third floor staircase closes off with a locking door so the entire third floor can be a private "suite" with three bedrooms (including bunk nook) and its own bathroom. Also has a view deck and a wet bar with sink, mini fridge and microwave.

Boutique hotel feel at the beach... We have completely redecorated, restocked, and revamped this home with $100,000+ in updating and tweaks. New king beds in 2015 - high quality 20' Simmons BeautyRest mattresses. Twin bunkbeds are all new latex foam mattresses. High quality linens, leather beds and Pottery Barn duvets complete the modern beach feel. You don't need to sacrifice comfort and quality to be at the beach!

Between the potential to share this home with multiple generations or multiple families, and the extra amenities this home offers, it is truly a bargain compared to other properties. This is the only rental home at Pajaro Dunes that has this level of updating, electronics, kid and beach supplies and special touches. We know, we rented the others before - and decided to create the rental home WE would have wanted to rent!

This home is especially comfortable for longer term visitors as it offers all the comforts of home (maybe more).

• Every bedroom plus living room and playroom have large flat screen smart TVs with DISH Network and Blu-ray players (bunk nook only has TV and DVD, no DISH). Enjoy the game on our big TV guilt-free while others enjoy the beach.

• Dedicated WIFI on site for you to surf, work or stream

• Two loaner LAPTOPS for guest use (windows)

• Tons of movies and popular TV shows already saved on the DVR plus a ton of DVDs. Will send list in advance. Bring your popcorn for movie night!

• Cordless phones with free local and long distance

• PLAYROOM/BUNKROOM stocked with toys! The grownups can enjoy themselves in the great room while the kids are off making art creations with their sand dollars. We have grownup games too, like poker, twister, cards, and puzzles.

• Have a baby/toddler? No problem, so do we! We have the stuff: changing table, three pak n plays, two high chairs, a baby-washing basin, potty seat adapters on every toilet, one floor-based training potty, high and low step stools in every bathroom, wipe warmer, baby monitor, boppy pillow, baby bjorn, bumbo chair, and floor entertainer mat for infants. We have multiple strollers including a dualie Bob stroller plus two single strollers, ride-on toys and even a bike (2 helmets on site). Tons of beach toys for the kids and balls/chairs for adults!

• No kids? No problem! You’d never know the kid stuff was there. Enjoy our vast assortment of fancy cocktail glassware for your adult weekend.

• Beach stuff! We provide coolers (2), beach towels, boogie boards (6) , chairs (10), chaises (2), umbrellas (2+), beach toys and even a bunch of beach bags for your convenience. A rolling beach cart allows you to easily bring stuff to the beach from our garage.

• Weber gas grill, propane included, and lots of outdoor furniture and umbrellas so you can actually enjoy the view decks.

• Container for a beach bonfire: A metal container as required by state parks for a bonfire, and marshmallow roasting sticks -- just bring your wood and stuff for s'mores! Yeah we also have plastic wine glasses for the beach - 'cause we think through it all so you don't have to.

• Curtains. You may say – so what? Well, we woke at dawn at too many rental houses without decent window coverings. Close the curtains and sleep late. You are on vacation!

• Extra fridge/freezer in garage. You can store a week of food for everyone plus beverages and ice. You can also order pizza and Chinese delivery from nearby Watsonville. We can send delivery menus in advance to help you plan.

• Allergy friendly: no forced-air heat, only radiant space heating, NO PETS on site, no smoking. All NEW for 2015: all mattresses (with dust covers), pillows, down comforters, linens and duvets/covers, mattress pads, towels, area rugs -- all brand new.

• Pajaro Dunes has tennis courts (reserve one day prior), a volleyball court, basketball court, soccer field and bocce ball on site.

For a walk-through tour and a view of the walk to the beach, see these videos:

We look forward to your visit!

[Note: Pajaro Dunes does not allow renters to bring dogs or cats. Some try anyway. This is NOT the house to try to bring animals to. The owner's kids are VERY allergic to the dander left behind.]

About Stacey

We are an active family that loves the beach and loves to share our love of the beach. When we are not at House 84, we are likely camping, at a T-ball game, or looking for an adventure somewhere.

Stacey purchased this house in 2014

Why Stacey chose Central Coast

We grew up on the East Coast, where beachhouses on the ocean are fairly common. We had never seen such a thing in California. When we first came to Pajaro Dunes, it instantly felt like home.

What makes this house unique

The close beach access right across the street! Lots of supplies you won't find in any other house, plus brand new furnishings and beds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Things liked best: "location, view-beach. TV's in all rooms. Beds-great. Laptops-numerous chairs and tables. Outside tables. Kids' playroom. Quick reaction by owner with any problems. Garage repair man was excellent! Lots of dishes. Beach toys, shovels, chairs."

The Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great experience. Stacey really did think of everything and made it available for us. We came with five kids between 1 and 10 years old. The house was very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped with pack-n-plays, baby gates for the staircase, a changing table, and entertainment for all ages. The garage has everything you will need for a relaxing or active day at the beach.

We decided to make a fire on the beach on our last night and let the kids roast marshmallows. We had everything we needed in the garage, including a lightweight table for prepping s'mores. This house is on the 2nd row but the beach access is right across the street so the walk from the house to our beach blankets was less than 100 yards.

There is a partial ocean view on the 2nd floor and we were able to see dolphins breaching sitting on the front patio.

The only "downside" I can think of was that the master bedroom mattress was too soft (my wife loved it). I bunked with the kids who had much firmer beds that were just long enough to fit me at 6'1".

I could tell from my interactions with Stacey and the condition/setup of the house that she is very conscientious and detail-oriented. Overall, this was a great vacation rental experience for us and I would highly recommend this property, especially for those with kids. We will be back for sure!

Sand dollars galore

  • 5 of 5

We loved the recent storms because the surf dug up so many new treasures for us on the beach. We collected loads of sand dollars, shells and even some rounded beach glass you don't normally find much of in no cal. The beach cart came in handy to carry all our full pails over the beach stairs, they were heavy! We had a bonfire and it was easy to do with the container Stacey provided in the garage. Honestly it's hard to convey in this short space just how much stuff is in this house (tastefully) to use and make our vacation great. These homes are not cheap to rent, so we expect some level of amenities -- this house goes above and beyond, beyond, beyond. We've rented others that didn't even have one beach chair. We will be back!

Great Pajaro Dunes House

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Pajaro Dunes for years and like to mix it up. We decided to try this house because of all the features in the ad and because it has such easy beach access right across from the stairs. We try to get front row homes when we can but we were so pleased with all this home has to offer that it was fine with us - honestly being steps from the beach with all the chairs and umbrellas provided, meant we spent more time on the beach instead of looking at it through the window. I guess you can say we were motivated to get off our bottoms! There was lots of kid stuff and we have no kids but it wasn't an issue for us at all - it kind of fades away. One comment is the prior people had not washed their dishes as thoroughly as we'd like so we ran a dishwasher load on arrival. Otherwise we recommend this house for mature folks like us who want to spend quality time with each other, have everything we need (martini glasses!) and just relax.

Beautiful weather not needed

  • 5 of 5

We were not sure about going to the beach in December in rainy season but we actually liked having mixed weather where we could go out and enjoy some clear skies and then hunker down with a fire when the rains came. The house has a wood burning fireplace and cozy living room with a huge TV that kept us entertained. There are so many movies (DVDs and saved on DVR) that we had a hard time choosing our favorites! The kids had their own room and although some of the toys were for littler ones, the Wii, teen-oriented DVDs, teen books and two laptops made them so happy. This house provided what we needed no matter what the conditions. We want to come back in summer and put all the beach stuff, boogie boards and whatnot to good use. Thanks Stacey for a great stay.

Exactly as advertised ...

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several homes through VRBO before, and were pleased to add this house as one of our top favorites. We appreciated the communication and plenty of helpful information from Stacey before our arrival. When we got there our kids went nuts for all the toys and beach stuff. i was skeptical when Stacey said just bring our clothes and food but she meant it -- the house has pack and plays, high chairs, strollers, beach toys and indoor toys (high quality) that kept us from having to relocate our entire house to the beach just to go on vacation. We only wished we could stay longer. Recommend for anyone with kids who wants a relaxing vacation with minimal planning.

Awesome family beach house.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Thanksgiving, with a total of 10 people (3 families). The house was spacious, neat, updated, and well-stocked. We especially enjoyed the toys, games, double stroller, and super-comfortable beds. The location was perfect-- just out the door and straight across a small road to the stairs leading to the beach. We spent all our time on the beach, hanging out at the house, and taking long walks. We hope to stay at this house again. Stacey was very responsive and we were thrilled with our whole experience. Thank you!
