Our family has been renting vacation condos from Pajaro Dunes Resorts for 19 years. Always a fun get away and great memories made. The rental office personnel are always professional. The condos are well furnished and comfortable.
Have had several vacations here with family and would highly recommend it. Beautiful location on Monterey Bay. Peaceful and relaxing. Watch the horizon at sunset for the "green flash" which may or may not actually exist.
40+ years of renting at Pajaro Dunes for Thanksgiving probably qualifies me as an expert. The resort offers condos and homes for rent. Most have ocean views. We prefer the beachfront homes with capacity for our family's now 3 generations. The resort's staff is quick to respond if there are problems. Try a night walk on the beach.
I have been going to Pajaro Dunes since I was 4 years old (over 40 years!). It is an awesomely family friendly beach resort community. All the houses and condos are tied together with an interconnected boardwalk. The beach is never crowded. All the houses have a unique architecture that is fun to track down and see. Look for the Castle, the Pagoda and the Soccer Ball house. It is a short drive into Watsonville to stock-up at the Nob Hill so you can stay-in, cook, eat, drink and watch the sunset. I have great memories here and would highly recommend.
Scenic coastal enclave with many great short-term rental opportunities with beach access. My family has been coming here annually for decades. It's peaceful and feels off-the-beaten track, but is actually quite close to civilization, supermarkets, etc. Easy day trips to Monterey or whale-watching.
