Not a complaint ! This condo is so cute, the decor is all beach theme. The kitchen is fully stocked, even a pizza cutter! I could stay here all day and not venture out. When we arrived it was pouring rain, but that was not a problem, we settled in started a fire, watched the beautiful waves.
Location is awesome, Monterey is 40 min, beautiful easy drive. Santa Cruz is 30 min. I do have one complaint ..... we were not here long enough, and we have to leave !

“Beautiful view & location, but...”
Reviewed November 10, 2017 for a stay in January 2016

This Pajaro Dunes rental is in a great location so I gave it 4 stars. It really needs TLC and some updates though. It has a very beautiful view wherever you look and nice long sandy beach. There are 2 couches by the living room windows but they are really not comfortable - no back support. There's a nice fairly large flat screen TV. The small master bedroom also has a great view and sliding glass door access to a very small balcony. The bed mattress was good.

Negatives: The heat literally took hours to warm the place at the first of January. It would have been good if someone warmed the place a little. I'd suggest getting a better heater. The bathroom really needs to be remodeled, especially the tub/shower - it's actually a safety issue. You have to step up into it and there are no hold bars. I'm short and had to be very careful getting in and out. The kitchen also could use a remodel. Fire logs were not provided which are really not expensive if you buy them on sale. They had to be purchased at the gate, which we didn't take the trouble to do. Really a few extra touches would have made things nicer, like new bedding, towels, nice toiletries, etc.

Dear Guest,
Many things have happened since your stay almost 2 years ago. We have had a complete renovation of the unit with new bath, new kitchen, new carpet, new sectional sofa/couch, new heaters, even new linen and all new kitchen/bath items. All the issues you listed in the review do not exist anymore. Besides awesome views from every room, the unit interior is nicely decorated with relaxing ocean themes, coordinated furniture and custom cabinetry. Please see the updated pictures listed online. Below is one of our guest’s reactions on July 15th, 2017 to our newly renovated unit for your reference:
“anna, words could never describe the beauty of EVERYTHING here. never. i knew i would be blown away but not this much.
your place is immaculate, so taken care of, fabulously lit, incredibly situated, fully equipped and, well, unbelievable. love, love, loving the sound of the waves right now. we consider ourselves so blessed to be here, anna.”
I hope you have an opportunity to revisit our unit in the near future. You will not be disappointed!
Regards,
Anna

“Convenient Beachfront Hide-away”
Reviewed September 16, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The location worked very well for us--a jumping off point for exploring the central California coast and a quiet place to come back to. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The beach access was perfect and we had a nice view out to the beach when we were inside. Partly due to the time of year we were there, but it was so quiet!

“Oceanfront Vacation”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My husband and I have stayed here 2 times. We love that it is secluded and the beach is private. The view is magnificent. You can hear and see the ocean from your bed. The condo location is between Santa Cruz and Monterey.

“Outstanding views & location”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Husband and 2 teenagers stayed here over Xmas in 2015.

The apartment was warm and comfortable with all the required amenities. Kitchen had an adequate supply of utensils and made cooking easy. The washer / dryer set up was essential for our family on the move. Beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was adequate.

I would suggest that the owner clear away some of the personal items. More particularly in the bathroom cabinet as many personal items were stored there and it was rather off putting. Maybe such things could be stored in a locked cupboard and guests provided with some appropriate personal toiletries as a welcoming gesture - soap, tissues, detergent, hair product (maybe). While I'm familiar and understand the nature of a personal rental there does still need to be some fundamental organisation that makes the guest feel welcome rather than an intruder into a personal space.

The location itself is truly terrific. The views of the beautiful Monterrey Bay from the huge picture window alone are great but the views from deck are more than 180 degrees. Seals and dolphins were frequent entertainment and the nearby fire pit on the beach was fun for a warming bonfire.

The complex itself was quiet, which was good. A small shop onsite had a good supply of essential provisions, including eco-logs for the fireplace. Access to Watsonville for more substantial shopping and many restaurants was a short drive away.

We had been constantly on the go for 3 weeks as part of our US adventure so our down-time at Pajaro Dunes was a welcome break. We would love to return and would happily choose the same condo again.

“An unbeatable view, will rent again”
Reviewed February 15, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

It was a real treat to have ocean view right in front of the living room and the master bedroom. The amenity is quite adequate. A very comfortable and relaxing place to spend the weekend with grown children.
