Top level, premium Pajaro Dunes oceanfront condo 30 yards from the expansive, family-friendly beach with a 180 degree, unobstructed ocean view from Monterey Bay to Santa Cruz. Savor dramatic ocean views and awesome sunsets while relaxing on the living room sectional sofa, reclining on the queen bed in the bedroom, or sitting on the outdoor deck. Just step outside to feel the sand, sun, and ocean, and to sunbath, build a sand castle, search for sea shells, surf, play volleyball, fish, or just sit peacefully amidst the majestic beauty of nature. Walk or jog along the beautiful beach, bike along adjacent trails, feed the ducks at the nearby pond, or use the exercise facilities, tennis courts, and basketball courts that are a close walk away.

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.
