'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.

What a sweet place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed and very clean. Everything you need in a kitchen to prepare family meals. The view was spectacular. We enjoyed watching whales and other wildlife right from our balcony. Hope to return next year!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time. The house is well equipped and comfortable, but the beach is the star attraction. Waking up on the dunes, with that view, was a wonderful thing. The homeowner was communicative and very helpful. This is a great location for nature/birdwatching - we've never seen so many seabirds - and yet it's also close to Monterey and Santa Cruz for a little more action. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful family gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight adults stayed in this beautiful seaside home for my daughter's UCSC graduation. The house is spacious, clean, and well supplied. Plenty of room for privacy, as well as great living and deck space for gathering together. We had beautiful views of the ocean, and it was extremely convenient to walk right down to the beach for a seaside walk. Thank you for the use of your vacation home! We definitely want to come and visit again.

Beautiful Beach Front Townhome

  • 5 of 5

This lovely townhome was a perfect fit for a retreat with family members. The home is well kept and very comfortable. We booked it with nine family members in mind but two were unable to join us. The bedrooms were spacious with their own bathrooms. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and barbecues outside on the deck. The long sandy beach is right outside the door and we all enjoyed long walks by the ocean as well as being in the ocean. I would suggest wetsuits for extended play in the water. The house is well supplied with linens, tableware and all appliances.

This area was perfect for my family .....we hiked in the redwoods near Santa Cruz, played tennis on the courts and enjoyed premiere kayaking in the nearby Elkhorn Slough. From our deck we saw whales, porpoises and many sea birds. We kayaked among sea otters and seals.

I especially enjoyed hearing the ocean at night from my bedroom. While we enjoyed meals "at home", we also enjoyed eating out at the many restaurants offered in the area. Phil's Fish Place in nearby Moss Landing was a memorable experience for excellent freshly caught seafood. We also enjoyed the board games every evening. I think all of my family members were well satisfied with this choice of beach house.

The owners were very accommodating and supplied us with many suggestions and useful information concerning the area. I would recommend this townhouse for families or couples travelling together.

GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5

Our large group of 8 had a wonderful time together. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and views from this town home in Cypress Grove at Pajaro Dunes. We found the kitchen well equipped with plenty of everything needed for our two families. There are four very large bedrooms giving everyone plenty of space.

Pajaro Dunes had the perfect location, we made day trips that weren't far away yet still enjoyed the beauty of Pajaro Dunes. We visited Moss Landing twice and had a fun a day at the Monterey Aquarium.

Yes! We recommend this lovely beach home.

Map

Car: necessary

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!...
