Overview

Watsonville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Where 'ocean view’ and 'beachfront' are understatements!!!

This beachfront home has stunning architecture, views and location. With a somewhat funky, eclectic design and decor, it’s perfect for family, friends, or business getaways. Its many nooks and turns draw smiles from adults and kids alike.

The kitchen/dining/living area is open and spacious with large windows facing the ocean. There are three very separate bedrooms, each with ocean views and sliding glass doors to patio or atrium areas. From inside or on the decks, you can enjoy a panoramic ocean view from Santa Cruz to Monterey with miles of blue sea, birds, otters, and occasionally porpoises and migrating whales.

Outdoor areas: there is an atrium deck off the kitchen/living room that is a lovely, protected area for sunning, BBQ, or dining. The decks off the living room and dining room are perfect for taking in the ocean air and views.

Pajaro Dunes is a private gated community with 1½ miles of sandy beaches on Monterey Bay between Santa Cruz and Monterey. Along with full views of the Monterey Bay and the coastal mountains, Pajaro Dunes has 24-hour security, walking/biking/jogging trails, professional tennis courts, playing fields, volleyball and basketball courts (only a 5-minute walk to the nearest courts/fields). It’s a short drive to Santa Cruz (30 min), Monterey and Carmel (45 min) for restaurants, famous golf courses, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk amusement park, or shopping.

The bedrooms are spread out and each have private or shared bathrooms, TV’s and ocean views:

Bedroom 1 – Master Suite: King bed, private bathroom with separate shower, bathtub, 26” TV with cable and DVD, ocean view, glass door to lower patio

Bedroom 2: King bed, adjacent full bathroom with washer/dryer, 14” TV with cable, ocean view, glass door to lower patio

Bedroom 3/Family Room: 5 twin beds (2 trundles + 1 twin), private full bathroom, 37” TV with cable, VHS video and DVD, glass door to interior deck area, ocean and valley/mountain views

Built in 1978 and featured in ads and home design magazines, this ~1,800 square foot home has a bit of an 80’s vibe and its homey, comfortable feeling will melt all your troubles away.

About Susan

That's us on the deck for July 4th.

Out on the beach, we like to boogie board, skim board, jog or play games... or just walk, collect shells, sit, or read. Always something for everyone!

Susan purchased this house in 1989

Why Susan chose Watsonville

Our family started out by renting at Pajaro Dunes in the early 70's. We loved the diverse architecture of the houses, the wooden path boardwalks that wound throughout the resort, and the expansive, secluded beach. We felt it was a perfect place for escaping the hustle and bustle, easy to get to, and close to Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Carmel. We knew instantly that this was the house for us. It has such a fun, beach feel with all the wood and windows... It's cozy, bright and open, and has jaw-dropping views that instantly take you away. Its architecture with its nooks and turns make it a playfully interesting place.

What makes this house unique

It's such a quick walk to the beach (1 minute) or the tennis courts (5 minutes), and there are so many paths to walk on to view the ocean and homes. There are many options for driving: a 15-minute drive into Watsonville for groceries or restaurants, Aptos/Capitola/Santa Cruz (within 30 min) for shopping, entertainment, restaurants, golf... And in the other direction, Monterey and Carmel and all they have to offer. There's also kayaking on the Elkhorn Slough about 10 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"we all really loved the house and having so much ocean to watch. I hope to come again this spring with my family. it was such a fun house." - Nina K.

Three Generations of Beach Time Fun

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fantastic. Plenty of room for our family of four and two sets of grandparents. Amazing view and amazing house. We had fun playing on the beach every day. Our last night the association made a bonfire for us to enjoy our dinner and smores. While we were on the beach we were privileged to see whales feeding just off the shore for at least 45 minutes. Not to mention the dolphins playing in the break water just off shore. An amazing end to a wonderful family vacation. We will be back.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
We spent the Memorial Day Weekend at this home. It was perfect for 2 families with children ranging from 2 to 9 years old. Loved the 2 master bedroom suites both with their own bathrooms. The decor of the house is great - very comfortable. Everything worked. We can't wait to come back to this house again in the future!

Relaxing ocean front get away!

  • 5 of 5
Great house for a family/friends get away. Located right on the ocean, the scenery couldn't be better. We could see dolphins surfing in the waves while having breakfast. The management company even offers a beach bonfire service (with a s'mores option). They will set it up for you on the beach in front of the house. We look forward to staying at this property again.

Relaxing house on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home; which was a perfect fit for two couples (two rooms with bathrooms and views) and a large kids' room. Relaxing, quirky and colorful environment. Well stocked kitchen, and right on the beach. The only thing it could use is to fire up that old hot tub on the deck so we could use it again! Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: I'm glad it worked out well for you! I'm surprised you figured out that was a hot tub - I like to think of it as a wooden, architectural element... Unfortunately, we don't intend to make it operable in the near future but agree it would be a wonderful addition.

love this house!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved staying at this delightful, quirky beachfront vacation house! Besides having a unique, interesting design and gorgeous views, the house has a beautiful interior which has been maintained with integrity, staying true to its original character and style (no granite countertops, thank you very much!). The house is clean, the beds most comfortable (with nice sheets), and the kitchen is very well supplied for gourmet cooking. The listing details and photos are accurate. We have rented at Pajaro Dunes several times, and this is our favorite house. Of course there are many wonderful things to do in the Santa Cruz/Watsonville area. This time we visited Mission San Juan Bautista and the Corralitos market. Don't expect many sunny days during the summer, though you can get a few hours of sun in the afternoon. We have come to love the fog when everywhere else is burning hot.
