About Sheila and Jim Pascoe

We are a long-time Bay Area family with a love for the beach and sharing time outdoors. Relaxing and exploring at Pajaro Dunes is among our favorite pastimes.

This home has everything we could want in a beach house - expansive ocean views, sounds of the surf and easy beach access, in a comfortable, well-maintained home.

What makes this house unique

Pajaro Dunes is unparalleled in the Bay Area for its expansive, quiet beach and proximity to some of the world's best beach towns. Growing up in the Bay Area we created many memories at Pajaro Dunes and are excited to have the opportunity to share this amazing place with others.

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Large, roomy and comfortable. Everything was in great condition but not so fancy that we didn't feel comfortable letting the kids be kids. It was a perfect fit for 2 families with 4 adults and 8 kids. And right across the street from the beach! We went everyday...what a treat for us moms to slip away while everyone still slept and get in a morning workout in the cool, ocean air. We really appreciated the numerous bath and beach towels plus on-site washer and dryer. With that many kids there was a lot of laundry piling up.

Also, the nearby eucalyptus trees made for some amazing climbing trees!

Thank you for sharing your home. We hope to be back soon!

Great relaxing place with great views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely home within a secure community that provided easy scarcely populated beach access. The waves were great and refreshing while the family could relax or play games on the beach.

Wonderful large home, good ocean views, great family home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time! The kitchen was well equipped. Having a couple small children it was nice to have the baby gates and a pack n play! The cart and toys for the beach were also great! The views of the ocean were nice & we even spotted whales two evenings in a row!! Loved the very short walk to the beach. The only thing we had a hard time with was figuring out the media room TV (however the kids were happy with what we found when we needed something for them to watch). Would highly recommend for family gathering!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. It's such a special experience when you see whales (two nights in a row is a double treat) or other sea life like dolphins, otters or seals. We very much enjoy watching them play in the water and it sounds like you did as well. We're glad your family had a wonderful time and we hope you will visit again in the future.

Such a nice relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 guys who came up for a 50th birthday party. This included golf, surf and food.

The house is a little outside Monterey and not centrally located but we enjoyed the seclusion of not being in a high tourist area. It felt like we had the dunes to ourselves.

Santa Cruz is about 20 minutes away and Monterey is about 15.

Kitchens great, bring food cause there are no easy access restraints around.

I'll definitely be back here again.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The quiet secluded beach at Pajaro Dunes is what sold us on this area as well. We look forward to having you as a guest again in the future.
