Loved the condos. Right on the beach. No shoes needed. We brought kayaks for the slough and river. Water was cold but didn't stop the kids from getting soaked. Loved having the shower heads to clean off all sand before heading up to the condo. Would stay here again!!

We've just come back from a week here and we loved it. What a great location. I can't fault the condo, bright, clean, airy and comfy. We chose one with a direct sea view and couldn't have been more happy. The development is gated and you drive in via the security building, they open the gates for you. The security... More

Pajaro Dunes is the best place to have a relaxing vacation. We rented a 2 bedroom Shorebird Condo with our son, his wife and the 2 grand kids . We rented through Pajaro Dunes, rather than through a private owner. The condo was on the 2nd floor, with a full view of the beach and ocean. It was spotless and... More

We stayed at the very end of the development at Pelican Point and we loved it. Very peaceful and quiet. I enjoyed watching pelicans on the beach. We got a ocean front property and had a very nice view from the place we stayed too. I highly recommend this place for a nice peaceful couple's retreat.

Pajaro Dunes is simply the best, most beautiful hidden gem in the Monterey area! I'm a huge fan! I seriously can't say enough excellent things about Pajaro Dunes! I've stayed there well over 7 times with family and it's absolutely excellent every single time. Pajaro Dunes is a private, upper scale gated development of condominiums in Watsonville, next to Monterey.... More

The view and location by far give this place a high rating. It is on a quiet and secluded area of beach. We enjoyed watching the seals and otters daily. The units do need a bit of updating both outside and in, but overall this was a great family place to stay.

Three girlfriends spent a few days here reading, walking on the beach, collecting shells and enjoying the sound of the waves. The kitchen was lovely and had everything we needed to prepare our dinners. A huge picture window gave wonderful vistas of the sea and dolphins swimming by. A fireplace kept us cozy early morning and in the evenings. .We... More

We went with a big group of work colleagues for a retreat here. It's nice as they are houses and not apartments - they also overlook the water. It's only a stones throw to the beach. With a lot of people surfing. We stayed in house #98 and #126. House #98 was a direct access to the beach house, #126... More

We had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend in a gorgeous location. Our condo was right on the ocean, simply walk outside the door. Fireplace for cold evenings, comfortable furnishings. Grounds are nice for walks, with ponds full of wildlife. We had a bonfire on the beach one foggy night - encouraged as long as you follow the rules. Not far from... More
