NEW for 2018!!



House 84 has it ALL... New, modern furniture and supplies for grownups -- ocean views -- a dedicated playroom full of toys and kid supplies -- drive-up convenience -- and the closest home to the beach access stairs! It has everything you could want or need - just bring your clothes and food and you are ready!

This is the LARGE home you can rent FOR EVERYONE TO BE TOGETHER instead of splitting your family into 2 homes. We allow up to 18 total people (adults + kids of all ages), and no additional day visitors.

To view a walk-through video of this home, click through the slideshow above and look for the arrow to click to start the video. Note this video does not yet include the third floor living area. Or, go directly to:

To view the path to the beach from this home, go directly to:

This house has the ONLY electric vehicle (E.V.) charger in a rental home at Pajaro Dunes! Level 2 Clipper Creek charger in garage.

Seven bedrooms with flexible sleeping arrangements and four full baths allow this home to be shared by multiple families/generations. The maximum headcount day/night is 18 people, ALL included. No pets, no exceptions...

The bed configurations are (see photos):

• Main floor master w/King and own bathroom

• Main floor playroom with four twin bunks (4) and hall bathroom

• Bottom floor bedroom with King shares downstairs hall bath

• Bottom floor bedroom with King and two twin bunks shares downstairs hall bath

• Top floor bedroom with King shares top floor bath

• Top floor "bunk nook" with two twin bunks shares top floor bath

• Top floor "sitting room" with twin daybed and twin trundle that slides out shares top floor bath

Boutique hotel feel at the beach... We completely redecorated, restocked, and revamped this home with $100,000+ in updating and tweaks all dedicated to the "stuff" inside, rather than the house itself. New king beds - high quality 20' Simmons BeautyRest mattresses. Twin bunkbeds are all new latex foam mattresses. High quality linens, leather beds and Pottery Barn duvets complete the modern beach feel. You don't need to sacrifice comfort and quality to be at the beach!

Between the potential to share this home with multiple generations or multiple families, and the extra amenities this home offers, it is truly a bargain compared to other properties. This is the only rental home at Pajaro Dunes that has this level of updating, electronics, kid and beach supplies and special touches. We know, we rented the others before we bought - and decided to create the rental home WE would have wanted to rent!

This home is especially comfortable for longer term visitors as it offers all the comforts of home (maybe more).

• Every bedroom plus living room and playroom have large flat screen smart TVs with DISH Network and Blu-ray players. Enjoy the game on our big TV guilt-free while others enjoy the beach.

• Dedicated WIFI on site for you to surf, work or stream

• Wii, games and Minecraft for older kids

• Two loaner LAPTOPS for guest use (Windows OS)

• Tons of movies and popular TV shows already saved on the DVR plus a ton of DVDs. Bring your popcorn for movie night!

• Cordless phones with free local and long distance

• PLAYROOM/BUNKROOM stocked with toys and games! The grownups can enjoy themselves in the great room while the kids are off making art creations with their sand dollars. We have grownup games too, like poker, twister, cards, and puzzles.

• Have a baby/toddler? No problem, so do we! We have the stuff: changing table, two pak n plays, three high chairs, a baby-washing basin, potty seat adapters on every toilet, one floor-based training potty, high and low step stools in every bathroom, wipe warmer, baby monitor (video), boppy pillow, baby bjorn, bumbo chair, and floor entertainer mat for infants. We have three strollers: a dualie Bob stroller plus two single strollers, ride-on toys and even bikes (helmets on site). Tons of beach toys for the kids and balls/chairs for adults! See photos!

• No kids? No problem! You’d never know the kid stuff was there. Enjoy our vast assortment of fancy cocktail glassware for your adult weekend.

• Beach stuff! We provide coolers, beach towels, boogie boards, chairs, chaises, umbrellas, beach toys, sports balls (with pump), and even beach bags for your convenience. See photos!

• Weber gas grill, propane included, and lots of outdoor furniture and umbrellas so you can actually enjoy the view decks.

• Container for a beach bonfire: A metal container as required by state parks for a bonfire, and marshmallow roasting sticks -- just bring your wood and stuff for s'mores! Yeah we also have plastic wine glasses for the beach - 'cause we think through it all so you don't have to.

• Curtains. You may say – so what? Well, we woke at dawn at too many rental houses without decent window coverings. Close the curtains and sleep late. You are on vacation!

• Extra fridge/freezer in garage. You can store a week of food for everyone plus beverages and ice. You can also order pizza and Chinese delivery from nearby Watsonville. We can send delivery menus in advance to help you plan.

• Allergy friendly: no forced-air heat, only radiant space heating, no smoking. ALL NEW: all mattresses (with dust covers), pillows, down comforters, linens and duvets/covers, mattress pads, towels, area rugs -- all brand new. Note the owner has a small hypoallergenic dog (Coton) that visits a few times a year and that is all- the community prohibits any renter or visitor pets.

• Pajaro Dunes has tennis courts (reserve one day prior), a volleyball court, full basketball court, soccer field and bocce ball on site.

• OUTDOOR SHOWER - Brand new, private outdoor shower with hot/cold water and direct access into garage. Wetsuit drying hooks and hangers are outside shower. Calling all boarders/surfers!

For a walk-through tour and a view of the walk to the beach, see these videos:

We look forward to your visit!

[Note: Pajaro Dunes does not allow renters to bring dogs or cats. Some try anyway. This is NOT the house to try to bring animals to. The owner's kids are VERY allergic to the dander left behind].

About Stacey

We are an active family that loves the beach and loves to share our love of the beach. When we are not at House 84, we are likely camping, at a T-ball game, or looking for an adventure somewhere.

Stacey purchased this house in 2014

Why Stacey chose Watsonville

We grew up on the East Coast, where beachhouses on the ocean are fairly common. We had never seen such a thing in California. When we first came to Pajaro Dunes, it instantly felt like home.

What makes this house unique

The close beach access right across the street! Lots of supplies you won't find in any other house, plus brand new furnishings and beds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Things liked best: "location, view-beach. TV's in all rooms. Beds-great. Laptops-numerous chairs and tables. Outside tables. Kids' playroom. Quick reaction by owner with any problems. Garage repair man was excellent! Lots of dishes. Beach toys, shovels, chairs."

Fun For All

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at House 84. We love it, because Stacey goes out of her way to have supplies in the house to make our stay comfortable. It is clean, updated and right across from the beach. Fabulous location! We no longer have small children, but the house is well-equipped with changing tables, potty chairs, toys, games, movies geared to young families. I'm sure we will be staying again soon. It has been our favorite rental at Pajaro.

This is the place for your family vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are coming from out of the area, this could not be any better. You do not need to bring toys, strollers, sand toys, porta cribs, or high chairs. Baby gates secure access to different areas. The beach is literally across the street, just a few steps away but this adds a bit of security if you have little ones.

You see the ocean from the front deck. The back deck is protected from the wind. Many options. The inside dining and, living room have plenty of room for many family members or guests. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need.

Computers are available for your use. Gamers will have a great time also.

The beach was clean and quite and sunny.

Just show up, this place is fantastic.

Absolutely perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely reunion trip of two families with 6 kids under the age of 7. The house was perfectly suited to our young families, with every thoughtful amenity you could think of -- from wine glasses and vacuum pump / wine saver stoppers for our adult wine tasting "experience" to kids sippy cups bibs! The house really exceeded our expectations in terms of comfort, fun things for the kids inside the house and outside the house, availability of household goods for cooking, light laundry, and toiletries. It's also set up for an easy transition to go from house to beach, and then from beach to house -- outside hose for spraying yourself down, full outside shower if especially sandy, and little buckets and carpets outside the doors perfect for keeping sand outside and house floors clean! We also enjoyed a lovely bonfire on the beach one evening with all supplies provided! Communication with Stacey was easy and she was lovely to work with. We decided that this is the house for us any time we are able to go back to Pajaro Dunes!

The house had everything you could ever need for adults and kids.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a beautiful area. Easy beach access that felt like your own private beach. Kids enjoyed the kid room and all the shells/sand dollars on the beach. They even tried the boogie boards.

Great Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of nine) spent a wonderful five nights in a great multi-level house just a thirty second walk from the beach. The house was well equipped with the comforts of home and was stocked with games for all ages and toys for all the little ones. When we went to the beach, which was often, the house had everything you needed for an extended day at the beach (chairs, beach towels, beach toys, etc.). We'll definitely rent this again.
