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 away 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, 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. Soft white bathrobes are there for your comfort. 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!
