About the property

Unique home for families with unspoiled views from Santa Cruz to Monterey

If you need to re-plan your vacation or relocate due to the Napa fires, please call Best of Dunes at 831-200-3863 (DUNE). Our beach houses are right on a beautiful white sand beach about an hour and a half south of SFO, between Santa Cruz and Monterey. You can still enjoy a great vacation - call to see what we can do for you!

Free and reliable WIFI so you can work as needed.


3 for 2 special October 15 to May 15 (holiday periods not included)!! Book two nights and get the third added free! (Enter two nights in VRBO dates not three, for correct pricing)


If you're looking for spectacular views ... an oceanfront home ... walls of glass ... that can comfortably sleep 3 families ... look no further!

The panoramic ocean views are special to this home - a curved wall of glass directs your eye south to Monterey, north to Santa Cruz and at all the sparkling ocean, dolphins, seals and even whales, in between. Enjoy these views throughout the large great room including an open kitchen, dining area, two separate couch seating areas, a cozy brick fireplace and an *enormous* flat screen TV! The shared space in this house comfortably entertains 2-3 families or generations vacationing together.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need to make gourmet meals! The barbecue deck outside the kitchen has a new Weber propane grill (propane and spare provided). Listen to the waves crash as you throw back a cold one, flip that burger and forget life on the outside as you live on "beach time."

The home is thoughtfully designed with bedrooms in the rear to preserve views in the great room for your waking hours. This separation provides privacy to retreat to the bedroom for some quiet time, vacation napping, or work (boo!) if you have to. The home has dedicated wifi for fast networking if you have to check in with the office.

The rear bedrooms also have a DVD player and TV to show the little ones videos when they need some down time and the grownups need some "me" time. It's ok, it's vacation!

This home sleeps 12 on beds in the following configuration:

(1) Master (ocean view): King, private full bathroom on main level

(2) King bedroom on upper split level

(3) Bunk bedroom on upper split level (2 sets bunk beds plus 2 twin floor mattresses) share full hall bathroom

(4) Lower split level: Queen bedroom, hall bathroom, laundry room

This home is great for *grandparents* who may not want to venture down to the beach but can see all the action from inside the home and on the curved rear deck. There is a boardwalk to the home and three sets of stairs up/down into the home. Once inside the only stairs are up or down half a flight to the upper or lower bedrooms.


Fine print: Pajaro Dunes does not allow renters to bring pets and we strictly enforce this policy. We also enforce maximum headcounts day and night, so if you are looking to have a bunch of extra visitors or an event, this home will not work for you.

AMAZING Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing house right on the beach. Breakfast overlooking the ocean, lunch steps away on the beach and dinner as we watched the sunset . We were able to watch whales, dolphins, and sea otters right from the patio.

Beds were comfy and cozy, chairs and couches were super comfy and the 2 "sitting" areas were perfect for either visiting or watching the ballgame. One review complained about the furniture but we thought it was the most comfortable and spacious of the 3 houses we've stayed in at Pajaro Dunes.

Kitchen was well stocked but could use another skillet and a couple more dish towels.

This was the second time we have worked with Stacy and she has always been a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We would highly recommend this for a large family gathering.

Wonderful family getaway at Pajaro Dunes

  • 4 of 5

The property location, facing the beach, provided wonderful viewing of the ocean and all the marine life. The sound of the waves, proximity to the sand and calm environment were perfect. While we didn't have much sun, we loved the cool foggy weather. The property accomodated our multi generational family gathering with sufficient seating , bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen supplies. It is a bit 'worn' and in need of some repairs.

Owner's Response: We are so glad this family enjoyed their stay! We were surprised about the comment about "wear" and write to clarify ... this home is extremely comfortable and beach casual - exactly as shown in the photos. Guests say they love that the home is not so precious that they have to worry at all about curious little fingers and can relax. Yet it has quality furnishings, new duvets and towels, a new BBQ and is not run down in the least. We needed to repair a sink leak this guest alerted us to only after their stay... and a screen sliding door that got ripped by a prior guest this summer and will be replaced. This home is clean, well equipped and wonderful!

We loved the location and atmosphere. Not too fancy so great with the grandchildren. Quite a lot of stairs for loading in and out but stairs had been mentioned in the literature. We would definitely do it again. Had a terrific time.
