'Dear Debbie,

After returning home to DC I came down with the flu which delayed this note of thanks. We had a wonderful time at your place and the welcome notes and gifts were a great way to start. The girls immediately ran out to use their bags.

Our only complaint was we needed more time to do everything!

Thank you again for the welcome and the opportunity to stay at your wonderful place.

Michele, Washington, DC

'Debbie, We so greatly enjoyed the opportunity of spending Thanksgiving with our family in your wonderful beach house. Your house is so comfortable and so beautifully equipped - a perfect place for a family gathering - and on such a spectacular beach. We treasured and enjoyed every moment that we were there. Thank you so much for allowing us to extend our stay until sunset on Sunday. That made for yet another lovely day.

I hope you will have a lovely Christmas time - and I hope that we will someday soon be able to return to your beach house - if not at Thanksgiving perhaps at another time. Thank you for making possible our precious days at Pajaro Dunes.

Sincerely, Gudrun Rice', Colorado

About Deborah Smith

Debbie and Les have lived in Santa Cruz county for 40 years enjoying our community, family and friends. Les is a retired business owner and Debbie a retired educator. We're both native Californians, met in college, a blind date at a Stanford football game. We raised our sons in Santa Cruz. Our Cypress Grove town home has become a magnet for our now scattered family and hope it brings your family and friends together as well.

Deborah Smith purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Deborah Smith chose Santa Cruz County

My husband Les and I bought our beautiful Cypress Grove townhouse when we went to a Sunday realtor's open house. We'd been looking for a home near the beach in Aptos, Capitola, or Santa Cruz for a few months. We knew this was the one when we saw the setting in the cypress trees and the VIEW after walking through the door. It was perfect! Sitting on a sand dune, with cypress trees, and in one of the most unique spots on the coast, Pajaro Dunes South. A beautiful home in a natural setting was most important to us and we were thrilled to have found it!

It was really meant to be....

What makes this townhome unique

We hope you enjoy our beach townhouse as much as we do. Pajaro Dunes is easy driving distance to so much on the Monterey Bay. Just a few minutes to Moss Landing with its shops and restaurants but also a real working fishing community. Monterey and Santa Cruz are an easy drive away on Highway 1. But you may want to just relax in the natural beauty and uniqueness of Pajaro Dunes South! Private gated community with: many tennis courts, a conference center available for you, soccer field, basketball area, hiking, biking trails, birding and more. And most importantly, 2 miles of pristine beach at your door to walk, relax, and enjoy!

Pajaro Dunes is just minutes to Carmel, Pebble Beach, Capitola, Big Sur hiking, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, world class golf, organic strawberry-apple picking and much more.

Private 24 hour security.

Cypress Grove 2 is a premium 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2300 square feet, three level town home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Debbie and Les,

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time my family had and how much we enjoyed Cypress Grove #2. What a great location you have! We loved being steps away from the beach and the water, I could hardly keep the kids out of the surf. We played tennis, volleyball, flew some kites, had long walks both north and south looking for wildlife and relaxed on the back deck. Great start to our family vacation and my parents 50th anniversary celebration.

A birthday that will never be forgotten.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most unbelievable time at this gorgeous beach home. The home from the living room to all the bedrooms was a very warm and inviting space. Not only was it beautifully furnished but it had

everything you would ever need to cook, set a table and entertainment while there. The whole house was clean and in very good condition. The bedrooms were so spacious and it was wonderful that each room had it's own bathroom. There were six adults and we never had to worry about not having our own space. My husband was celebrating his birthday with our

children and he said he couldn't have asked for a better time at the beach. The views from the decks were spectacular. This home was even more special than we had anticipated. We hope to do this again in the future because of the wonderful experience we had. Debbie was such a friendly person and was very attentive to our needs. We would definitely recommend this beach home to our family and friends. Looking forward to a future stay.

A great beach get-away

  • 5 of 5

This lovely townhouse proved to be a perfect get-away for our family. The constant uninterrupted view of the beach and waves was a nice change for these mountain dwellers. Beautiful sunsets. It is located close to many options for daily excursions, but we found that we preferred to stay on the beach all day for our last day instead of the plans we had for touring Santa Cruz. We had taken our own kite, but the two kites we found there were even better and more fun for young and old alike. We did pry ourselves away to go to the aquarium in Monterrey, which was impressive, but the highlight for all of us was kayaking on the near-by Elkhorn Slough. Lots of seals and sea otters in their natural environment. The younger adults found the beach and paths around the townhouses perfect for their daily jogging. The bedrooms were all very roomy, and the living area on the top floor was very comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen. The nights were plenty cool enough, so we enjoyed the coziness of a nightly fire in the fireplace. Because it is off the beaten path one feels as if you have left the world behind, but the Easter Bunny was still able to find our granddaughter.

Fantastic time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at the beach house with another family, nine total and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house was clean, comfortable beds and a nice floor plan to accommodate both families. We loved the location, right on the beach and without the or Santa Cruz crowds. The tennis courts were always available which we leveraged. Debbie was very kind providing details about local things to do and information about the resort. We would go back again!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect holiday! Private waterfront townhouse in Cypress Grove. When we arrived we were welcomed with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers. The home was comfortable, well decorated, plus a kitchen with everything we needed. All 4 bedrooms were spacious and accommodated all 8 of us with room to spare. There were several restaurant choices in nearby Moss Landing and though we went out one night, we relished having relaxing BBQ dinners and watching the sunset. A truly fun time together in a lovely home. Ocean FRONT, beautiful cypress trees, dunes; a perfect Monterey Bay natural setting. Highly recommend.

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 of us rented this wonderful beach condo for the week of October 17-24, 2015. It is such a relaxing place we had planned to eat in 4 nights and go out 3 but had so much food and fun we ended up going out only our last night. There is so much to see and do at the condo -- those of us that walked the beach enjoyed it and those of us that read and enjoyed the great decks off all three sides enjoyed that too. It is a great place to just relax and enjoy the ocean from sun-up to sun-down.

The bedrooms all have their own baths and are well furnished including TV. We are all over age 55 (range from 64 to 75 and everyone had a great time. We are definitely looking forward to doing this again soon and hopefully the home will be available to us. .

The Pajaro Dunes Beach is at the center of Monterey Bay, with the cities of Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach and Carmel 30 minutes to the South, and Santa Cruz 25 minutes to the North.

The Pajaro Dunes Beach over looks Monterey Bay and is an easy scenic drive to world renown destinations, resort towns, golf courses and state parks. There's the historic Cannery Row and the famous Aquarium in Monterey. Stop in charming Pacific Grove for lunch at the quaint Red House Cafe. Play a round of golf at the world-class courses at Pebble Beach, or take in the dramatic views of the Pacific from Pebble Beach's 17-mile drive. A visit wouldn't be complete without a trip to picturesque Camel, residence of world renown artists and art galleries. And, of course unique Capitola + Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and its wooden roller coaster. These places and more are just 25 minutes or less from Cypress Grove.

Pajaro Dunes Resort sits on the border of Moneterey County and Santa Cruz County.

Other Activities: Pajaro Dunes:birding, kayaking at the Elkhorn Slough, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Monterey Bay Auqarium, Capitola Village shopping and more!...
