Property description

Now even better than ever, our home away from home was completely remodeled. Shorebird #66, a beautifully furnished penthouse condo, is a private home in an ocean-side gated community. Situated directly on the sand, Pajaro Dunes on Monterey Bay is secluded yet only five minutes to Highway 1 and the town of Watsonville.

You will feel worlds apart at this beach condominium surrounded by a bird sanctuary, the Pajaro River, lagoons and the Pacific Ocean and in full view of Monterey Bay and the coastal mountains. In half an hour you can be playing on Championship Golf Courses in Monterey or riding the Big Dipper at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Our guests rave about how well they sleep on our comfortable beds with the sound of the waves just outside the window. The master suite has a king-size bed and beautifully remodeled bathroom, appointed in restful earthtones, and overlooks the ocean and glorious sunsets.

The two guest bedrooms have a queen-size and two twin beds and share the tastefully updated guest bathroom with spacious shower. They have spectacular views of the sunrises over the mountains and Pajaro Valley.

Spacious living/dining area and spectacular, newly remodeled kitchen open out to the two balconies in view of ocean, lagoon, mountains and valley.

We take great pride in our home away from home. You will see that in our furnishings and the condition of our condominium. Family photos decorate the walls and remind us of decades of enjoyment at the beach at Pajaro Dunes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Any time of the year there are a multitude of activities we enjoy at Pajaro Dunes or here at nearby Elkhorn Slough. Whether we're bundled up for a boat ride in March or soaking up the rays on the warm sandy beach in October, there is something for everyone. Miles of beach on Monterey Bay call us to long leisurely walks. One of our favorite things to do while at Shorebird #66 is to gather family and friends, serve up a steaming bowl of homemade clam chowder, then break out the dungeness crab with chunks of sourdough bread with a bottle of great California chardonnay. That feast, together with the backdrop of a spectacular Pacific Ocean sunset, is our idea of a good time.

Why the Owner Chose Watsonville, CA, USA:
The San Francisco Bay Area has been home to us all our lives. When The Shorebird condos at Pajaro Dunes were being built in the early '70s we visited the development and fell in love with the whole area. Here we have a great getaway without driving for hours. For many years we rented other Shorebird units enjoying memorable vacations with our family and friends. Because Pajaro Dunes is close to so many attractions it is especially appealing to all ages. When Shorebird #66 came on the market, we couldn't resist it's appeal. We purchased it in 2002 and furnished it with memories of all those many years spent at the beach. We don't like to have our home away from home vacant, so we make it available to guests when we are not able to use it ourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There is a peacefulness about our property at Pajaro Dunes. Such a great expanse of beach, bird filled lagoons, gulls and pelicans cruising over crashing surf, a penthouse condo built right on the sand dunes, with tennis courts available on site. Seemingly so detached and yet we are only five minutes away, through fields of strawberries and artichokes, from Highway 1, the Coast Highway. Within ten minutes you can be at Nob Hill Market, Target, or CVS Pharmacy. In half an hour you can be sitting on the wharf in Monterey having a delicious seafood meal, or playing a round at Poppy Hills on the Monterey Peninsula.
