About Carl Wheatley

I grew up in Ireland and moved to the US more than 20 years ago. I settled in Silicon Valley and have been living here ever since. And no surprise, my husband and I work in high tech but love to come to the beach whenever we can get away.

Carl Wheatley purchased this house in 2017

Why Carl Wheatley chose Watsonville

I discovered Pajaro Dunes shortly after I moved to the US. I fell in love with it immediately and have been coming here ever since. I have travelled the world but there is no other place I would rather be.. Pajaro Dunes reminds me of Ireland. It's a hidden gem nestled between the miles of strawberry fields and the Pacific Ocean. The resort lies next to a nature sanitary audit's not uncommon to see bird watchers scouting for a sighting of the many species of birds. Coming here on a Friday evening after work is like stepping into another world. Look up and down the beach from our patio and you will likely see a string of couples with wine and beer watching the magical sunset.

What makes this house unique

The location is unique. There is nowhere else you will such beauty and tranquility, yet the buzz, bars and restaurants of Capitola are only 15 - 20 minutes away. Santa Cruz, Monterey Bay whale watching and the Aquarium, central coast wineries and world famous golf are a short drive away

Beauty and the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved our stay at this home! As my review title states, it is a beauty, with oceanfront views and easy access to the beach. This house has everything you need for a perfect stay, including four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, gorgeous contemporary furnishings, BBQ, patios, and a wonderfully-outfitted kitchen. Carl is a thoughtful and helpful manager who answered all our questions and provided tips to make our vacation even better. We will be back!

Awesome house and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Plenty of room for our family of three couples and five grandchildren, each room with their own bathroom. Lots of beach toys and games available, extra tables and chairs to set up for games and puzzles, three refrigerators for storage, a well appointed kitchen, a dining room with spectacular views, a living room to accommodate us all with a wonderful view of the beach, an outside patio to beach watch…. The list goes on and on. There was not one thing that we wish we could have had and the house was super clean.

Carl’s service as manager was outstanding. He was very prompt and friendly answering our questions and providing solutions. We now consider him a friend. This property is a ten star find out of five! We definitely will be coming back to #48 for more Pajaro time at the beach.

This house has truly million dollar views and right on the water/beach. Plenty of room for everyone. The property is nicely kept and clean. Master shower is unbelievable. Most importantly the beds were all great and nobody had any issues sleeping in a crappy bed. Fireplace is nice on windy evenings and the huge leather couch is super comfy too. We will so be going back!!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Four couples, friends for more than 50 years, had a college-reunion sort of getaway. We loved being on the beach. We loved having all the space to hang out. We loved each couple having a full bathroom. The home was clean, and totally equipped, too.

Amazing views and the house to match

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Carl's place with my entire family and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

The location cannot be beat. You wouldn't want to leave the premises, actually the balcony :)

Amazing views and gorgeous surroundings.

The house is well kept, furnished, and accessorized to the highest degree.

I hope to be back!

Perfect Beachfront Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in homes at Pajaro Dunes for over 40 years. We were here for a week, and house 48 is one of the best homes in which we have ever stayed. The bedroom arrangement was perfect for our family - three bedrooms with King beds and a bathroom in each and a fourth bedroom with bunks and a queen and a bathroom for the grandkids. The beds were in good shape and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped - granite countertops - newer appliances - and every utensil we needed and then some. Beach chairs, kites, and boogie boards were all available for use in the garage. Parking for most homes at Pajaro Dunes is in parking lots behind 3 rows of housing - everything has to be carted over several hundred feet of wooden walkways through the dunes (charming - but a bit of a chore). This home has a driveway and garage attached. Of course the best thing about beachfront homes at Pajaro Dunes is - the beach. While it is a public state beach - there are rarely very many people on this part of the beach because the public access is nearly a mile up the beach. (The beach access for this house is three houses over) Watching the sun set over the ocean from the back deck is a real treat. Finally - the property manager Carl - always gave a quick response to questions we had leading up to our stay. (We did not need to contact him during our stay because things were perfect)
