Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful fit for our family. Modestly furnished and perfectly situated for excellent views and easy beach access. We rented wetsuits for $10/day from Freeline on 41st and played in the ocean 3-4 hours straight each day. Also read a book on the comfortable sofa in front of the wall sized windows and cat napped almost every day. We relished the ability to do laundry and cook rather than living in sand filled clothes and paying for dining out all the time (though Phil's in Moss Landing is AWESOME). The kids enjoyed the Boardwalk one night and all of us enjoyed the beach camp fires and smores at night. Excellent vacation and planning to book again.

Family Fun & Relaxation

My family loved our weekend stay at this condo. My son and two daughters loved playing in the sand, surfing on the water all day, and I could even watch them from the deck of the condo when I needed a break. The closeness of the condo to the beach provided easy access for our family to the bathroom, hot showers, and refreshments. My husband and I loved falling asleep to the sound of the surf and waking up to the stunning ocean view from the master bedroom. The children slept comfortably in the upstairs loft. The beach-themed pictures and tasteful décor made us feel right at home. The three closeby tennis courts, the basketball court were an extra bonus. T

Breath taking views!

  • 4 of 5
The views of the ocean were incredible. We loved the peaceful beach and access to it was only a few steps away. We enjoyed reading in the living room by the picture window. However, when we got there, the window was covered in bird poop. My husband had to climb out on the side of the deck to clean it (which took quite a bit of effort and ingenuity as it was a large window!). We also felt that the kitchen needed some serious updating. The stove was extremely old and took forever to cook anything. The wifi also did not work, but that was not a big issue for us. The view and location were what made this rental worthwhile.

Owner's Response: Hi Becky,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write the review!

Recently, for some reason, there have been many seagulls that are creating mess on the windows of top and front units like ours. We have scheduled window cleanings a lot more often than we normally do. However, nature’s calling can happen any time and renters can call the Gatehouse to schedule the cleaning if needed.

In terms of kitchen oven, we are aware that it is old and needs to be updated. As the unit has been booked solid and we haven’t been able to do the serious remodeling yet. However, we are planning to block some days in July to do a partial remodeling of the kitchen. Meantime, in the unit, we have a portable cooker (stove top/oven/steam 3-in-1) that can cook the meals conveniently.

We have installed new stand-alone WiFi in the unit and has 30 MB download internet speed. It works very well.

Regards,

Anna Hanna

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights. This was our 4th trip to Pajaro Dunes and the 3rd different property we've rented. This unit had, by far, the best views of the oceans and beach from it's 3rd floor location. There was nothing blocking the panoramic view and we were even able to see dolphins and seals (or otters?) frolicking close to the shoreline every morning. Binoculars or a telephoto camera lens is put to good use during a stay here!

The living room furniture has been updated since the property photos were taken. Currently, there is a comfortable sectional which makes afternoon naps in front of the "bay window" (this could be how that type of window got its name!) feel like bliss.

The unit doesn't have the focus on detail and kitchen items that someone particular or culinary-related might demand, but the owners were VERY helpful in correcting the situation with the WI-FI during our stay. When a place says they have WI-FI, we expect wireless internet access. That wasn't the case, as the available signal was non-existent, even in perfect weather. But as soon as we explained the issue to Anna, she promptly had the cable company come out and install a router. I didn't expect such wonderful customer service, but really appreciated it as it enabled our kids to play their favorite computer games and watch Netflix between trips outside to the sand.

But I was there for the beach access, top notch view and location off the beaten path; yet still close to Monterey, Capitola and Santa Cruz. For this purpose...it's a wonderful unit. With young children, I love that we could be out of the unit and onto the beach is less than 30 seconds; and if I wanted to, I could sit on the deck and watch them play in full view without having to worry where they were, etc.

Thanks Anna, for being so easy to work with, addressing our concerns in such a caring manner and opening up your property for us to enjoy some quality time at the shore!

Lovely Beach Community

  • 5 of 5
Coming off Hwy 1 through the strawberry fields, you would never guess that such a lovely beach community is just down the road. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely condo and gorgeous beach! The pictures don't do it justice, the views are amazing. We had a fire on the beach and collected lots of sandollars. We went to eat at Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing, a local favorite; casual, excellent seafood. Monterey/ Carmel are a short drive away; we spent an afternoon at Point Lobos exploring tidal pools and viewing seals and sea lions. Our only regret is that we should have stayed longer!! Thanks for renting your lovely unit!!

Loved this Place ~ Would Definitely Return!

  • 5 of 5
I'm still on a high from our wonderful beach vacation at Pajaro Dunes! This Shorebirds unit was perfect for our family of 3. We entered to the breathtaking view that I just couldn't get enough of! The giant picture window with chaise lounging couch in front of it was perfect for enjoying the view if we didn't feel like bundling up on a chili morning to get out. The proximity of the condo to the water was exactly what I was hoping for. The crashing waves lulled us to sleep each night and we enjoyed getting to see the seals & dolphins bobbing by multiple times a day (so close our binoculars weren't really needed!) Loved the quick walk down to the beach - especially when we'd forget to take something down with us or needed a bathroom break; it was no problem to zip back up to the condo. Our 4-year-old loved having the upstairs loft as her own space; she slept very well there. The condo was well-stocked w/everything that was needed for preparing meals. (Though if you're like me & don't like cooking every night of vacation, you'll be pleased that there's a good Chinese restaurant & a Round Table pizza that deliver!) We were also happy to find beach toys available for our use since we forgot our daughter's toys at home! Another reason I'd recommend this unit is that the owner is very responsive. Anna always replied immediately to emails and answered her phone each time I called. I considered rating this 4 stars instead of 5 only because there were a few minor maintenance issues that needed to be taken care of while we were there & probably should've been done before our arrival. However, since this did not hinder our enjoyment one bit and the owner did take care of things and because there are way too many good things to recommend, it still deserves the 5 stars! Also, the on-site management is extremely professional & friendly; we appreciated the warm greeting we received upon our arrival. The resort has a little market on site, which we were pleased to find all the supplies for making s'mores, including the firewood - saving us a 15-minute drive to town. There are plenty of firepits all along the beach to enjoy. The beach itself is very nice, quiet, clean & family-friendly; not at all crowded or touristy. But if you want things to do besides the beach, the Santa Cruz Boardwalk & Monterey Bay Aquarium are close by. This place truly had everything we wanted for our vacation! I'm already telling my other beach-loving friends about it!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5
Our week stay in this condo by the sea was wonderful! The view upon entering the unit is breathtaking. Situated just steps away from the water and offering the best in sunsets, this is truly a home away from home. The unit was a bit in need of updating as far as appliances, carpet, and linens. After telling the owner about the exposed carpet tack strip by the wall, she informed me of her intent to replace the carpet and furnishings in the near future. Those updates would make this unit the perfect place to spend a relaxing vacation by the sea.
