This is a one of a kind vacation property. It is interior designer owned and decorated, with ocean views and is walking distance to one of the best beaches in Southern California. It was completely renovated in the Summer of 2008 specifically with discriminating families in mind. It has a 'cottage chic' feel and is romantic yet kid friendly. Our condo is located in Dana Point, just a mile and a half from Laguna Beach.
We renovated this property to a very high-standard, where literally no detail has been overlooked in making this a place where you will want to come again and again and again! The flooring is either brand new travertine tile or wood. All of the windows and doors are new. The kitchen has custom high-end cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a built-in wine rack. The kitchen also has a custom built breakfast bar that is connected with the family room so that you can still socialize while preparing dinner. In the family room you can cozy up by the fireplace which has an antique hand-hewn mantle from Virginia, or watch your favorite shows on our 42' LG HD flat screen TV. Each bedroom also has a flat screen TV/DVD and the condo is equipped with high speed internet and free local and long-distance calling within the US. These are little 'extras' that we include in your stay with us that others often do not. There are also 3 outdoor lanais to chose from if you want to sit outside and take in the ocean breezes.
The master bedroom is very romantic with its four poster bed with a sheer canopy. The bed is not just for looks though...the sheets (600 thread count!), mattresses, comforters, pillows are all high quality and super comfortable. In the evenings, open your windows or doors and feel the ocean breeze and let the waves lull you to sleep. Get up in the morning and enjoy the master bathroom which has double vessel onyx bowls, body jets in the shower and custom tile work throughout.
The 'kids' bedroom has brand new cottage-style bunk beds with fun, bright, beachy bedding that either boys or girls will feel comfortable staying in. The lower bunk is a full sized bed and the upper is a twin; with an air mattress (which we provide), 4 people can stay in this room very comfortably.
The third bedroom has a four poster queen bed that faces the ocean so you can enjoy the view from your bed! Of course, the plush, Posturepedic mattress is brand new as are the pillows, 600 thread count sheets and luxurious damask bedding.
Let's not forget about the ocean view. There is a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean from two of the bedrooms and you can sit at the bistro table on the lanai off the master bedroom, have a glass of wine and take it all in. Our proximity to Salt Creek Beach is great! Take the steps down to the beach and you are there within minutes. You can also enjoy the shared pool and hot tub which is just a short walk from the condo.
We would love for you to be our guests and we have done what we can to ensure an enjoyable visit! Please don't hestitate to call if there are any questions we can answer.

About the owner: We have 3 children and the condo is well stocked for children! We are very family oriented and love to travel. I am an interior designer by trade so we took special care to ensure that our property was not only functional, but also very beautiful. Many people criticized us in the renovation process saying that we were making it 'too nice', but we live by the belief that you should treat people the way you want to be treated. We like to sleep on high thread count sheets, so we want our guests to as well. We have children, like many of our guests, so we have made the home very family friendly while at the same time being luxurious for the parents!
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach: We absolutely love Southern California and found ourselves vacationing in the Laguna Beach and Dana Point area over and over and over. We have many friends who live in the area so we finally decided to take the plunge and buy our second home in Dana Point. We bought it sight unseen and completely gutted it to make it what it is today. We enjoy sharing our home with others and hope that many come to appreciate all the hard work and little details that separate our vacation home from the others out there!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: One of our favorite things to do while at our condo is watch the sunset. We will just sit on the patio or lay on the bed and as a family, watch the sun go down. We cannot seem to get enough of the Catalina sunsets! Of course, the beach is so close, that we head down to the beach with the kids and let them run around and attempt to use their 'boogie boards'. The pool was also just renovated and we enjoy lounging by the pool when the kids have had enough of the sand. The Dana Point Harbor is just a few minutes away and we frequently go on sunset sailing cruises, dolphin watching trips or trips to Catalina Island. Of course, no trip is complete without going to one of the major amusement parks like Disney, Legoland or Sea World...all within close proximity to our condo.
