Overview

About the property

Ocean Front Pajaro Dunes At Pelican Point 2nd Level 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom Condo

You just may experience Shangri La in this remodeled second level condo located in a private, gated community between Santa Cruz and Monterey, overlooking an immaculate beach. Its southern exposure provides natural light and warmth year round.

The second floor allows full enjoyment, with no obstruction from dunes or grasses, as with some units. Pelican 37 juts out, affording privacy from the neighboring units, which are recessed to our right and left. Because the condo's location is at the end of the Point, the beach is often without another person in sight, except for early morning walkers along the shore.

Relaxing and restful, the condo is perfect for those wanting to ‘get away from it all’. Tennis courts, basketball, sand volleyball and a remarkable Bird Sanctuary are available within the gated community.

Step onto the deck to enjoy the sounds of crashing waves or view the spectacular sunrises or sunsets; better yet, put your feet up and enjoy the view from the comfort of the great room.

The condo also meets the needs of those who want to be more active because of its proximity to the attractions of Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz; e.g. whale watching, surfing, kayaking, wine tasting and gourmet dining.

A fully equipped kitchen will please those who chose to 'eat in'; nearby eateries will please those who chose to 'eat out.'

About Jane Moses

We are a retired teacher and public health nurse, living near the condo, in the Mission town of San Juan Bautista. 37 Pelican Point is a long desired vacation spot for us, after renting various houses and condos there at Pajaro Dunes for many years. Less than a half hour drive for us, it's the perfect spot to enjoy, without much planning or long drives.

Jane Moses purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jane Moses chose Watsonville

We love being at the ocean, regardless of the season, and the security at a gated community with staff available 24 hours, and safety features like an on site fire department, were and are very appealing. The proximity to our home was especially appealing, as we hope to continue 'aging in place'. With Monterey and Santa Cruz equidistant, it is the ideal location for us, and attractive to many visitors to California.

What makes this condo unique

The full ocean views from inside the condo, as well as the patio outside, were an immediate draw for us, especially since the second floor allows full enjoyment, with no obstruction from dunes or grasses, as with some units. Pelican 37 juts out, affording privacy from the neighboring units, which are recessed to our right and left. Because we are at the end of the Point, the beach is often without another person in sight, except for early morning walkers along the shore. We love it!

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Having not had a true vacation for a while, and it being one to celebrate some major life milestones for both myself and my 14-year old daughter, I had high expectations. Spent hours looking for just the right place, and I found it.

At the farthest end of the beach at this ocean-front property, you would almost think there was not another human around. Kitchen fully equipped, amenities thoughtfully provided, and a view that is priceless!

For the most part, with the windows and slider open, all we ever heard was the sound of the wind blowing and the waves crashing onto the shore. Residents and other guests are respectful at night and it's incredibly quiet at all times of the day/night.

Just for a price comparison...I spent the same amount on this condo as I would have for a hotel with two queen beds in Santa Cruz that lacked a fridge, or even a microwave, and certainly not a view like you will have at Shangri La. Additionally, the property owners were incredibly gracious and accommodating, checking in to be sure we had everything we needed. I will be back!

Spectacular Condo and Awesome Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our three day weekend was absolutely wonderful in every way! My sister and I agreed that this was the best condo on the beach in all of Pajaro Dunes. It has been updated, was very well maintained and offered all the comforts of home. The bed and furniture was extremely comfortable and cozy. The ocean views were spectacular! If we didn't like walking on the beach so much (we walked over 10 miles) we never would have left the condo! It felt like Heaven on Earth and we can't thank the owners enough for sharing their piece of paradise with us. What a gold mine! We will be back! Thank you so much!

Perfect site

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay. Beach was beautiful, clean and many times of day we had beach virtually to ourselves. Great location for day trips to Santa Cruz or Carmel or kayaking at Elkhorn Slough

LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon week in Jane's beautiful home, and absolutely loved it. We savored every day, and enjoyed walking on the beautiful beach, sitting for hours on the balcony listening to the waves, and building a fires on the beach and in the condo. We will be back frequently. One of our favorite places in the world. Jane was a gracious and kind host. Thank you.

Wonderful spot on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for an 8 day stay a bit harried due to car rental issues and such....The place was very nice, great view off the deck and wonderful that it sits at the end of the complex so there's no other units further south. Amazing amount of wildlife....tons of birds....we were able to see whales breaching just off shore on a couple days...

Definitely recommend Pete's for dinner....it's way busy on the weekends tho....

Also did a pontoon tour of Elkhorn Slough up at Moss Landing....very nice and relaxing....and the guide counted over 80 sea otters during our trip....also plenty of seals, sea lions, various birds, etc....

Did a run down to Monterey a couple times and went south as far as Big Sur on the coast highway...it's still closed beyond there but still great sightseeing...

It would be nice to have directions to the grocery store, etc. in the Hospitality section as many visitors will be making that run up to Watsonville....
