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 831-200-DUNE. We are not limited to 'office hours'!

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