About the property

Equipped Beachfront Home With Parking

3 for 2 special! October to May 25 (not including holiday periods). Please send email inquiry for pricing.

Welcome to House 46 at Pajaro Dunes, also known as 'The Sanctuary.' This is an oceanfront, single family home stocked full of everything you might need, and more! It has its own driveway and garage for convenient access (unlike other homes you can only access by a long boardwalk with a cart).

The living room, dining room and kitchen all face the ocean with full ocean views. Look for whales and dolphins! The three-sided river rock fireplace is charming and cozy. A back deck runs the length of the home, and an ocean view sunroom allows for beach watching while fully indoors. The sunroom makes this home particularly great for grandparents who want to watch little ones enjoy the beach but not walk down. Most of the home is on one level, with just three steps separating the living room area from the 'bedroom wing.'

This home sleeps 12 people on comfortable beds, in the following configuration:

Master: king bed and en suite bathroom, some ocean view (sleeps 2);

Sitting Room: adjoins master, has pull-out couch with queen memory foam mattress (brand new), wet bar, and ocean view (sleeps 2);

Second master: king bed and en suite bathroom (sleeps 2);

Third bedroom: two double beds plus a loft with a double futon platform bed (sleeps 6), share hall bathroom

The sleeping arrangements are flexible such that the Master and adjoining sitting room can be a 'family' bedroom using the queen pull-out couch. The hall bedroom can also be a 'family' bedroom as it has three double beds.

The separation between the bedroom wing and the gathering rooms in this home provides excellent privacy when needed for contemplation, alone time or a peaceful midday nap.

The large, updated kitchen can accommodate multiple chefs to create amazing feasts for your group. A wall oven plus a microwave and stovetop, two sinks, and all the pots, pans, plates, cutlery, glassware and cook's tools you could want. (There is also easy and fast delivery from nearby Watsonville, choose from Chinese or Pizza!) A new Weber propane BBQ is right outside the kitchen on a deck sheltered from ocean breezes where outdoor furniture allows you to relax and eat outside (we provide propane plus a spare). An extra fridge in the garage is a great resource for storing ice, food and drinks for your group's entire stay.

House 46 also offers dedicated wifi for surfing, working or streaming, plus flat-screen TVs, Comcast cable channels, and Blu-Ray DVD players. It also has beach supplies, toys and games for kids, and an extensive book and DVD lending library. We have a high chair and pak n play for the little ones, along with step stools in every bathroom.

Pajaro Dunes itself is a private, gated community directly on the dunes of Monterey Bay.

Because only those occupying Pajaro Dunes accommodations can enter the community, the beach at Pajaro Dunes is quiet and you may have it all to yourself much of the time. Activities abound in Pajaro Dunes, including surfing, tennis, basketball, sand volleyball, shuffleboard, birding, and shelling (all inside the community).

It is also a quick and easy drive to Santa Cruz, Monterey, the Monterey Aquarium, Carmel, the redwoods of the Forest of Nisene Marks in Aptos, berry picking, Gilroy garlic festival and Gilroy outlet shopping. Fishing and whale watching excursions can be booked out of nearby Moss Landing, which is also the closest surf break (although plenty of people surf and boogie board at Pajaro Dunes).

Please feel free to call anytime with questions at 415-203-2213. We are not limited to 'office hours'!

Please note that no pets are allowed at Pajaro Dunes rental homes per the Homeowners Association.

Why Stacey chose Central Coast

This home is a rare find on the California coast - a beautiful and large beach home that sleeps 12, perched right on the dune with full ocean views and has its own parking! The quality of your accommodations affects the quality of your vacation -- you deserve this!

What makes this house unique

This cherished family home has been called the Healing House, the Sanctuary and the Pearl of Pajaro. This home resonates with the decades of loving times enjoyed by the family and friends that have been its caretaker and kept it perfectly updated and fresh. Those who visit this home leave restored, rejuvenated, and with new insights and renewed intentions -- including those who didn't know they needed it in the first place.

Perfection in details

  • 5 of 5

My family rents at Pajaro a few times each year and have never stayed at a house, or condo twice. This may be the exception. Everyone really loved it there. It is easy access, driveway parking, 5 total stairs (perfect for grandpa and toddlers), spacious, CLEAN, and holy schmoley - HAS reliable WiFi! as well as a full TV selection, and TV's in several rooms! (super rare in pajaro.) It was so well stocked, I really just needed some clothes and food, even though we had an age range from 9 months to 75. I forgot my beach chairs, they were there, couldn't fit the double stroller in my car - there was one there...didn't realize there were basketball courts, the balls were there for my teenage sons... extra pillows, extra blankets, the softest towels ever... all there. Perfection!

Stacey sent documents in advance that detailed everything, including how to order pizza and chinese delivered to the house, left contact info if there was any issues, we were even greeted with a bottle of wine upon arrival.

The house is 2 homes from the beach path, which- I normally try and rent next to the path, but with this house, the path STARTS a few feet from the garage, so it didnt matter as much... and the beach- if you have never been, TONS of shells at low tide, and early AM, and we saw the full gammot- dolphins daily, whales daily, seals and sea lions hourly, and even an otter or two almost on the sand, directly in front of the house. Of course, sunsets to die for.... all 4 nights we were there.

Bonus... sun room has SOUND PROOF GLASS when you close the sliding doors... did I mention I have twin toddlers? yeah, that was HUGE. We set up a blow up pool, added some toys, (not water) and they played through windy and cold afternoons for hours. When the tired and grumpy hit - soundproof. perfect.

The only negative is- My goofball 17 year old son cut his foot running on the beach, and I didnt pack a first aid kit.. there was plenty of paper towels and scotch tape... but a few band aids would have been cool. Other than that - the place is perfect... HIGHLY recomend this home, and for that matter - any home Stacey rents. She was awesome.

What an amazing house. We stayed over the New Year weekend for 4 nights and the house was amazing. It is so roomy and accommodating. Stacey was great to work with and responded quickly to emails. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

What s blessing to be able to stay in this awesome beach house. It was like living a dream. Everything was well thought out. Beautiful accommodations, lovely dishes, excellent floor plan. My 81 year old parents just felt so pampered. We even had A bonfire on the beach for the kids and grandkids. Such a memorable place to stay. Thank you so much. Love, The Ferrers, The Henns, and the Heynes

My girlfriends and I were so happy with the level of service and attention to detail that Stacey provided. Our Annual Girls Retreat went up another level! House 46 was great! Plenty of everything! See you in 2017!
