Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bath house with a garage, across from beach stairs

3 for 2 special NOW to May 15 (holiday periods not included)!! Three nights for the price of two! (Enter two nights in VRBO dates not three, for correct pricing)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Four bedrooms with flexible sleeping arrangements and three full baths allow this home to be shared by one large family or multiple families/generations. The maximum headcount day/night is 12 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

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!

New in August 2017-- all new stainless kitchen appliances! New Samsung refrigerator and ceramic flat top electric range, and new LG dishwasher! All new nonstick cookware! You don't have to sacrifice convenience and function to be at the shore.

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. 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.

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!

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 coworkers stayed here while in the area for car week down in Monterrey. The house itself was very tidy and had everything we needed for grilling out on the porch and enjoying a bit of time out on the beach. While it is a bit more remote than we anticipated, it was nice to get away and spend some time unwinding. Definitely plan to stock up on groceries as a run into town is an easy 30+ minute round trip.

PERFECT FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5

Sad that we were only able to squeeze in 4 nights this year. Sleeping arrangements worked perfectly for all adult couples who did not have to have children in with them. children ages 13-7 :2 10s and 1 11 slept in the playroom the 9 slept in the small bunk room upstairs and the 13 and 7 slept on the trundle bed upstairs. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. The three floors allows people to have private time as needed. Enjoyed bonfire on the beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeanne, thank you for the great review. I just want to clarify for those reading, that the "third floor" mentioned here is not part of the standard rental - the description here on VRBO is for a spacious two-floor, four bedroom, three bathroom, over-2000 square foot home for up to 12 people. We have a third floor that is the private space of the owner, but we sometimes make it available for rent as an add-on for large groups to stay together in one home at a cost lower than multiple homes. It increases the headcount by 50% (12 -> 18 people), the total bed count by 50% (9 -> 14 beds), the square footage by 50% (2000 -> over 3000 SF), and the price by 50% above the quote here on VRBO.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Pajaro Dunes. The home had everything we needed and more. If you have younger children, this is the place. We had teenagers and they had fun at the beach with down time on the Wii. So convenient to be able to walk to the beach.
