About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Ba condo - Originally a 3 bdrm, now larger living areas! Sleeps 5

There's a special advantage to the Pelican Point homes at Pajaro. Being at the most private, expansive portion of the beach means true serenity. We're at the point, and you'll enjoy fabulous views & quiet!

Whether you're looking for a quick weekend getaway or a vacation on the beach without the expense and hassles of distant travel; Pajaro Dunes, located equidistant from Monterey and Santa Cruz is an ideal location. Enjoy a relaxing 'stay-cation' in our gated community which offers 24/7 on site security, private beaches, and natural wonders. Birding enthusiasts enjoy an array from curlews and dowitchers to avocets and egrets to cormorants and pelicans, and much more.

Pelican 55 is a lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath home on the first floor with direct access to the beach. This was originally a 3 bedroom home, recently remodeled to allow more open & spacious living areas. Our covered patio and living room’s large windows face toward Monterey, giving you a full view of the Pajaro River, the ocean and lots of seabirds & wildlife. Ocean waves can be seen making their way up the wide beach too. Step off the patio to the boardwalk and a short walk to the beach. You'll find the beach is pristine and quiet - your own oasis! Because we face southwest, we enjoy beautiful sunrises over the river while avoiding the uncomfortable winds often found in the evening at sunset. When it cools down, electric heat keeps you warm - or call to have a bonfire set up on the beach for you! S'mores anyone? There is also a bird sanctuary about 25 yards away protecting the rare birds.

If you are up for more than sunning on the beach, there are a number of activities such as biking, jogging, world famous golf, kayaking, surfing, whale watching, and scuba diving available in the area. There are tennis, sand volleyball, and basketball courts on the premises.

Santa Cruz is a short drive away and great fun for the kids and the young at heart. Don’t forget the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, and the great restaurants in Monterey, as well as great restaurants and shops just a few miles from in Moss Landing. Carmel and Big Sur are wonderful day trips as well! You can buy fresh fish at Moss Landing for BBQ on the propane grill on the patio or for preparing in our fully equipped kitchen.

Pelican 55 is fully equipped and furnished for 5 adults. 2 bedrooms (king bed, two twin beds), a daybed and a double sofa bed in the living area, so up to 7 with children can be accommodated. Extra little ones? The sofa sleeper and day bed would be great for them. Both bathrooms have recently been remodeled. One has a shower, and the other has a bathtub with shower. This home offers high speed internet and HDTV and Blu-ray in both the living room and the master bedroom! All complimentary. The unit is about 1332 sq. ft.

There is a lobby store inside the north gate (look for the 'Shorebirds' entrance sign) that sells beer and wine, as well as clothing, gifts, and snacks. You can also borrow a book or movie (free!) while you’re there, and pick up the daily newspaper, hot coffee, free sports equipment, ice, and nearly anything you may have forgotten. Ask about the fabulous kites!

You surely will enjoy your stay at Pelican 55!

About Pajaro Dunes Resort

We recently purchased the home from Georgeann, and plan to continue renting the home with the special touches she became known for! As she did, we rely on the Resort staff for Guest Services. If you've stayed with us before, you'll find your robes waiting, and Guest Service staff ready to assist you with advance Aquarium tickets (no lines!), restaurants that deliver, fun activities from zip lining to horseback rides on the beach and more!

Pajaro Dunes Resort purchased this condo in 2014

Why Pajaro Dunes Resort chose Central Coast

Spacious, with spectacular sunrises! Steps from the beach; Adjacent to bird sanctuary; Quiet. Ideal for children's sand activities. First floor. No climbing stairs. Great for seniors, teens with their surf boards, romantic getaway, and families with young children. All ages flying kites.

Guest message 7/20/15 says it all:

Dear Mary and Family,

Thank you so much for the gift basket! That was so generous and nice of you! It was full of so many great things and we really appreciate your kindness. Your condo was so beautifully decorated, so clean and serene. We had a wonderful week at Pajaro Dunes - I think it was the best reunion we've had with the kids and grandkids. They were so happy with the sand dollars they found and all the fun they had digging in the sand at the beach. The weather was good all week. Added bonus - my 25 y.o. daughter slept on your day bed and when she woke up in the mornings her back didn't hurt like it often does! Thanks again for the basket and for letting us stay in your beautiful condo.

What makes this condo unique

Built as 3 br, then remodeled to 2 br to create more spacious living areas. Floor to ceiling windows look out across the sand to the pajaro river, and then southwest to the ocean. Steps to the beach. Hdtv & high speed internet. Truly a home away from home.

loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Pelican Point #55. The place was clean and had a very well equipped kitchen. The living area has a great view of the river and we loved that the patio was out of the wind. The kids spent hours on the beach finding shells and building things out of drift wood. We could just watch from the patio with a cup of coffee. It can't get more relaxing. We'll definitely be back.

Great Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family stays at Pajaro Dunes nearly every Labor Day. This home was perfect for our family of 4 (14 year old girl, 11 year old boy). Apparently, the home was originally a 3 bedroom, but remodeled down to a 2 bedroom to increase community living area. This worked perfectly for us. Our daughter got the bedroom and son slept on the day bed, tucked away in a nook. The larger living area was nice for relaxing and not being on top of each other. The view from the rental looks out over the slough, and there is plenty of bird life to watch. Being a lower lever, expect to hear noise from the condo up above, but if you've ever stayed at Pajaro before you'll know to expect this with any rental not on the top floor. We cook most of our own meals and the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, baking trays, etc. Honestly, my only complaint was that the knives were not very sharp. This was a great beach rental and met our needs perfectly.

Nice condo amid an amazing location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and two young daughters had a nice, but short, weekend trip to Pajaro Dunes. The condo is in great shape, spacious, and outfitted very well for an extended stay. One can see the slough, sand dunes, and the ocean and river partially from the rear patio. We could have spent hours wandering and playing along the beach. I highly recommend visiting Elkhorn Slough for a tour with Elkhorn Slough Safaris - the slough was teeming with wildlife (birds, otters, seals, sea lions).

A couple of minor issues: we found the bed in the master bedroom to be extremely firm and uncomfortable; because the condo is on the 1st floor, we heard a lot of noise (walking, thumping) from units above and noise from people speaking.

Perfect in every way... Wonderful Property Can't Wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I, along with our three kids, came for a long weekend in Pajara Dunes (the beach) before school started and I can't tell you how impressed we were with this property! It was perfect!! Wonderfully outfitted with everything you could want for a stay at the beach - kitchen perfectly outfitted, cabinets full of books, puzzles, games, birdwatching books, beach stuff, etc. - owners truly thought of everything from a lovely basket upon our arrival to a very thoughtfully stocked home. We are already looking forward to a return trip - very clean, well kept and lovely unit - highly recommend!
