Located in desirable Pajaro Dunes, this tastefully updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit is available for your getaway. You get ocean views from the master bedroom and living room, and the beach is just outside the beach door.
The unit is fully equipped and furnished and sleeps 6 comfortably with one queen and two double beds. Guests have access to use of tennis courts, playing fields, volleyball courts, basketball courts, workout facilities, video lending library and internet access.
Shops and restaurants in downtown Watsonville are available just down the road. Moss Landing with it's seafood market is just minutes away and scenic Monterey and charming Carmel by the Sea are just a half hour drive away.
Normally when traveling to California's central coast, we stay in Monterey or Pacific Grove. However with the AT&T tournament this past weekend everything was booked so we took a chance on Pajaro Dunes, a short drive to Monterey (and Santa Cruz). We were really pleased with this condo. It sits quietly in a gated community right on the beach. The beach is kid friendly with a wide swath of sand and California-calm waves. You can see Moss Landing to the south and Capitola to the north. Inside the condo, the beds were comfortable with very nice linens and pillows. The bathrooms were average-size and worked well. The main living area is spacious enough for children to spread out toys and play or for everyone to gather on the large sectional couch. I used the kitchen for most our meals and it worked well; everything I needed was close at hand (although the appliances are outdated). My only suggestion would be to update the TVs; they are all the big box style so the image quality is fair. All in all we were really pleased with our stay and grateful to return to calm quiet location after spending our days in the crowded tourist areas of Monterey. We would definitely return.
This place has become our favorite when we combine multiple family members because it is spacious and so clean and practical. The beds are all very comfortable with 3 bedrooms/2 baths. The ocean view is narrow, but in the mornings we could see the dolphins from the deck. We even spotted some seals without having to walk out to the beach. The night we arrived was the full harvest moon and we have great photographs of the moon coming over the cypress trees right off of our deck! the location is perfectly located to all the Monterey Bay attractions. I only wished we could have stayed longer! We spent the week celebrating my grown daughter's birthday. The owners had done some nice decorating additions since we were there in 2011 and everything we needed was in place. New barbecue was great! Thanks for helping our family carry on the Shorebirds traditional trip!
Our family of 5 enjoyed a marvelous week in this lovely Pajaro condo. The condo is very spacious and clean, pleasantly furnished, and is well-stocked for all of one's cooking/barbecuing needs. We found plenty of beach-style entertainment for our nights in the condo: a glass chess set that my 10-year old thought was the coolest thing ever, board games, cards, etc. We also appreciated the giant shovel in the outside closet that our teenagers were able to use to make a monster sand castle. Our trip to Pajaro included a night on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk,and sea kayaking at Moss Landing, only a 15 minute drive away. We have visited Pajaro every year for the past 16 years and this beautiful condo (and the wonderful weather, great waves, and numerous porpoise and seal sightings) helped to make it our best visit yet! Thank you to the owner, for making everything so easy, and to vrbo.
This unit has EVERYTHING........I wish I had all those items in my kitchen!!
The towels in the bathrooms were like a five star hotel.
No expense spared here to make you VERY comfortable.
Thank you........................my kids are demanding we come back next year.
We stayed at this condo for a wedding in the area. The facility was in great condition and very clean. The photos on VRBO were very accurate in displaying the actual condo. The owner was very helpful and responsive to my various questions and made the stay very easy. The only update that I would suggest is newer, more modern TV's.
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this condo and it is absolutely beautiful. It's clean and the furnishings are comfortable and cozy. You can't tell from the photos how nice it really is. There is an ocean view and the condo is steps from the beach. We would absolutely stay again!
