Comfortably nestled between two miles of private pristine sandy beach and the soothing fragrant eucalyptus grove, this comfortable and completely furnished 4 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, three story home with an ocean view, is located in the gated community of Pajaro Dunes, located between Monterey/Carmel, and Santa Cruz on beautiful Monterey Bay. Just one hundred yards to the ocean, this beach house has something for everyone!
Within the gates, enjoy two miles of private sandy beach to sun, surf, fly a kite, stroll or have an evening bonfire. If that's not enough, you can become one with nature and bird watch out your back door at the wildlife sanctuary, play tennis, shoot hoops, walk or ride bikes on the beautiful trails. Maybe you want to be more adventurous--like kayaking with the harbor seals and otters in nearby Elkhorn Slough, or maybe a day of deep sea fishing on beautiful Monterey Bay, or how about swinging your clubs at one of the many local golf courses. There's definitely something for everyone!
There's so much to see in the Monterey/Carmel area including abundant specialty shops, restaurants, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey Pier, and Cannery Row, just to name a few. A few minutes to the north is the town of Santa Cruz with its ever famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, home of the all wooden roller coaster--The Big Dipper. Ride an old steam locomotive through the Santa Cruz Mountains making a stop to enjoy a picnic lunch surrounded in the beauty of the redwood forest. Enjoy a day of wine tasting at one of the many local, award winning wineries. Again, there's most definitely something for everyone!
Easy to get to, Pajaro Dunes is just an hour south from San Jose International Airport, or minutes from Watsonville Municipal Airport for private fly-ins.
I grew up in the Bay Area and now reside on Bainbridge Island, Washintgon. My four siblings, who own the property with me, all reside in the Bay Area.
Lou Ann Ashton purchased this house in 2000
We are a close knit Italian family who enjoy each others company. We wanted to invest in a piece of vacation property that we could all enjoy with our own families and friends and found our little piece of paradise right here in Pajaro Dunes!
We rented Lou Ann's place for a family reunion. Ten of us stayed comfortably in the house and it was stocked with everything you need! Pajaro Dunes is a true hidden gem on a quiet and secluded beach.
A group of friends and I get together every year for a reunion, and I booked this place for us to stay in for the weekend. It was in a great location, easy to find, and there were no issues finding parking. My husband had recently torn his ACL and had trouble moving around, but the house was easily accessible from the parking lot, and the space was comfy and spacious for him to rest and lounge around. We loved how there were balconies on all 3 floors to hang out in. Overall, this place was awesome. Definitely coming back here again in the future! Thanks for all your help, Lou Ann!
Our family got to enjoy this wonderful haven for Memorial wknd 2016. It was an easy 2 minute walk to the beach, the house was clean and the beds were comfy. It had a patio on every story that we enjoyed. Bbq'ing and lounging with drinks in hand over great conversation; adults and kids were happily entertained. The owner is a delight to work with and also accommodating. The place was like home so we did not need to tote extra linens or dishes to cook with. There was place for storage for food. The beach was great, not too many people. Can't wait to go back.
The house was laid out really well with a master bedroom up top and 3 bedrooms on the bottom floor. while the middle floor was great for entertaining with the kitchen, table and living room. The house had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable and felt like home. The location was perfect with easy beach access and driving to both Santa Cruz and Monterey were quite easy from here. We highly recommend the kayaking at Moss Landing just 7 miles down the road as well.
Place was amazing. Gated community and very quite location.
Perfect for a family/friends re-union. Comfortable enough to accommodate 10 people including kids
