About At the Dunes - Vacation Rentals at Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville, California

Pajaro Dunes is a getaway destination near the center of Monterey Bay. It’s far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet not far from Monterey and Carmel, Santa Cruz, and even San Jose and Silicon Valley (just a one-hour drive). There is no hotel at Pajaro Dunes so if you want to stay here you will need to book a vacation rental. Many of the units at Pajaro Dunes are vacation rentals by the owner. That means they are already owned yet made available to rent by the public through services like At The Dunes (VRBO is another web service that lists vacation rentals). Through these websites visitors can book homes, townhomes, and condos of various sizes (1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units) at Pajaro Dunes. Each unit has a full kitchen for cooking and many have BBQ grills on their decks. All the units are right on the dunes and have easy access to one of the best and remote beaches on the central California coast.

Palm Beach is a public state beach that is located near the center of Pajaro Dunes. This off-the-beaten-path park is little-known but gives access to those who just want to visit Pajaro Dunes for the day. Guests staying in the vacation rentals have access to a games room and many outdoor tennis courts. This area is known for bird-watching as the property is backed by wetlands and a slough that empties into the Pajaro River. A nature center on site helps visitors identify all the bird species that can be spotted at Pajaro Dunes.
