'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.

Nice location, OK place, disappointing finish

  • 1 of 5

The location on the beach is great for this condo that is connected to several others in the older section of Pajaro. The facility has some challenges with connectivity and cable TV not always reliable and the kitchen not as well supplied as we would hope. The finish was lame as the owner refused our security deposit refund in part over a repair issue we could not possibly have created (an unused deck area) and then complaining of sand (go figure on a beach) which was not an unreasonable issue when we left. Buyer beware on this one.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was celebrating an 8th Grade Reunion from the Class of 1983!! We loved this spacious, wonderful, cozy home, situated right along the coast and offering a beautiful view both morning and night! It was perfect for us, and we spent our time cozied up, in the living room, by the fire place, reminiscing. Fabulous home!!

We LOVED your beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location (ocean front as opposed to being a row or two behind other beach houses), the floor plan, the accommodations and furnishings, the very personable and cooperative owners, and we will definitely book this beach house again for future enjoyment!

Awesome location right at the beach front - Excellent view!

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect. Excellent in many ways and a great location for a beach get away. The place is a "condo" in that you are sharing common walls on either side, so a reference as a guest house or beach house could be misleading. Also, the bedrooms are either one set of stairs below the entry level, or 2 flights of stairs down - it is a 3 story place so keep in mind if you have folks who struggle with the stairs!

Amazing location and very clean place - awesome view!!!

A time to remember

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was to celebrate a special occasion and the house made it even more special. Both friends and family praised the ambience, the comfortableness, and location of the home. All said they would love to return. As for my wife, it will remain a special place for her. The owner was super responsive and gracious. A memorable experience.
