Santa Cruz County Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ground level - big views, 2 bedrms, sleeps to 6, 2 luxury baths, & more

As soon as you step in the door of this ground level condominium, you've begun to relax.The large picture window with views of both the river and the ocean, and the shoreline of Monterey in the distance, are always visible from the living area (open style living room, a kitchen and dining room).


From the 2 sofas in the living room you can read peacefully, light a fire (on cool nights or in the winter), or watch a movie.

If you chose to cook, you don't have to be away from the outdoor views and can enjoy a fully-equipped kitchen to prepare happy hour for the beach or to put on the salmon for dinner. The glass doors off the living room take you to the deck, where you'll likely enjoy most meals. (The pelicans usually provide fascinating entertainment.)

The master bedroom, with California king bed and television, has its own full bath. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, sofa and trundle bed. Pullout sofa in LR sleeps 2. Washer and dryer. Gas / charcoal grill. Internet access.

The community includes tennis courts, basketball courts and lots of riding, walking paths.

Serene, Peaceful and Quaint......

  • 4 of 5

Thank you, thank you! My husband and his parents thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pelican 75. The location was quiet, serene and had a beautiful setting for watching the sunrise and moonrise! The condo was warm and cozy as well as quaint with character. Our host, Lauri, was friendly, available and very accommodating. It was a very lovely location and experience for our family holiday. We are very grateful!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a winner. The condo was clean, comfortable and cozy. The views of the river and the dunes were amazing. Plus the unit had the greatest table on the deck so you can enjoy your morning coffee or your afternoon cocktails all while enjoying the ocean air. Easily accessible for children and the elderly because there are no stairs. Win win. Will be back for sure. Thankd

Very beautiful, perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Came for my son's wedding which was down the road a few miles in La Selva Beach. Our stay was absolutely perfect! The condo was clean, plenty of room with beautiful views. Well stocked with anything you would have at home. The only 2 minor issues was the trundle bed would only open on one end and then it wouldn't close and one of the bathroom sinks was very very slow to drain, but simple issues that I'm sure will get fixed. We would definitely recommend this condo to family and friends. Thank you!!!

Relaxing and perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful beach house with my family of five. It was the perfect size for us and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable with lots of extra sheets. We cooked three dinners and had all the kitchen supplies to do so. The deck was perfect to enjoy watching the birds and feel the ocean breeze. It was a short walk along a wooden walkway to the beach. Most days were sunny in the afternoon. Mornings were filled with taking our kids out for a morning walk and collecting seashells. We saw seals and dolphins almost all day. We had a great time and will definitely come back!!

Great location - excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and had everything we needed for the stay. It was clean and homely with some great views across the river and to the sea. A great location for getting away from civilisation but handily placed for visits to Monterrey and Santa Cruz. We loved every minute of it.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We took our son on a 3 night beach trip for his 12th birthday, and we loved this property! The views were amazing, with its riverside and beach location. The variety of sea life was incredible, especially the avian variety. However, we also saw a group of sea lions cavorting and fishing, a sea otter and whale spouts. The condo was much more spacious than we expected, and the ground floor location made accessing the beach very easy. Driving to Monterey for dinner and the aquarium was also very easy, and there are stores, restaurants, farm stands and markets within a very short drive of this property. We will definitely recommend this unit to our friends & family; it's a lot of 'bang for your buck.' For the same price as a small hotel room, you get a home away from home ON the BEACH. Even the entry is lovely and landscaped. A perfect place to unwind and relax. We'll definitely return!

Pajaro Dunes is a gated beach community of the Central California Coast. Monterey and Carmel and 17-Mile Drive are all under 40 minutes away to the South. Santa Cruz is 20 minutes north. Watsonville offers all the shopping and restaurants a traveller needs should you never want to leave the beach town. The beaches of Pajaro Dunes are surprisingly private. Many sunsets can be taken in quietly and with a feeling of solitude. The bird watching at Pajaro is known worldwide. It is a protected site for nesting of Snowy Plovers.

It's easy to spend lazy days on the beach and venture out to Phil's for just caught salmon and snapper in the evening. Or, enjoy Mexican food at The Whole Enchilada at Moss Beach, both under 15 minutes door-to-door.
