                            My husband and I spent one month in this rental. I had some reservations about renting it prior to heading to Dana Point. I am a clean freak and am very concerned about my living space. Pictures on the internet are often deceptive. While speaking with the owner, Joy, on the phone and in email exchanges with her I was encouraged by her assurances, but I was still somewhat worried about our decision to rent the space. When we arrived at Dana Point, Joy and Pat were there to greet us. As we pulled into the car port many of my concerns were placated. The landscape surrounding the cottage was quite beautiful. As we entered the cottage all of my concerns were dispelled. Sunlight poured into the open living space, while fresh ocean air circulated throughout the open doors, giving the space an unencumbered feel to it. The décor was tasteful, with an ocean motif and the furniture was both comfortable and well placed. The lovely covered porch completed the package. Joy and Pat showed us around and made us feel welcome. They both provided us with several local restaurants and places to visit and then left us to enjoy our new home for the month. Coming from Indiana, we found it easy to pack for the trip in that the rental came with all of the kitchenware, cooking utensils, appliances, sheets and towels and all we needed was our clothing and stocking of food for the refrigerator and pantry. The big screen TV in the living room was hooked to Cable, included Netflix and Amazon as well as Blu-Ray DVD player with several DVDs in the rental for us to enjoy. By the end of the month we found that we spent equal time in the house and out on the tranquil porch. We really liked being a part of Dana Point for the month and would love to come back again

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, tourists without a car, romantic getaway, sightseeing, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                            We stayed at the cottage for three weeks. There was a welcoming note and goodies for us when we arrived. The place was as clean as a whistle and all we had to do was unpack and start our vacation. It was located in a quiet residential street. The owners were receptive to any concerns we may had had and stayed in touch through emails to be sure we were satisfied. We took advantage of all the area had to offer and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

                            We were two Couples visiting from Sweden, staying for a week to chill out and attend a wedding down in San Clem. We arrived early and met up with Joy as she was clearing out from previous guests. She was a Lovely lady that seemed very genuine and relaxed. She was also very well engaged and seemed to understand her houseguests interest and questions. In fact All our Contact has been great, Joy has been committed and answered all my queries and concerns promptly and satisfyingly. This woman is not at all doing this only to make money, she in fact stays here herself when it is vacant, and it displays in the way that the house is really taken care off with love, it feels like a nice little house that you want to stay in longer! Everything that you need is there, we cooked food and hung out both indoors and on the lovely private patio. Parking was good – we had two cars and parked one on the street. Unfortunately we got a ticket for the day it was street sweeping – the sign was severely hidden in a bush and we didn’t read the house instructions in time to avoid it. This is of course nothing that we hold Joy responsible for, it is more a heads up for the next people staying! ? Both bedrooms were cozy with separate ensuite bathrooms, which is a plus when you are travelling with friends and still want to have a private sphere, too. Walking distance to beach, harbor, restaurants, Ralphs and basically the whole of Dana Point. You could stay here without being dependent on a car every day – which is very unique for SoCal life. Anyways. Everything was great, it was tidy and nice and perfect. I would recommend anyone who appreciates the true beach town experience to stay here, and might return next time I visit OC! Thank you dear Joy for hosting us! It was indeed an adorable cottage!

                            The balcony is what makes this cottage a winner - from dawn till dusk it is tranquil, cool and spacious. Indoors has everything you could expect, clean, comfortable and well organised all round. The lantern theme in Dana Point is implicit here too - very lovely, although maybe the whole "street naming after coloured lanterns" thing, is a bit too twee for its own good. Toddlers should head straight for "baby beach" in the harbour, recommended...

                            We loved your home! It was perfect for two couples. Your attention to detail made our stay very comfortable. Actually it was hard to leave. We've been going to the Doheny Blues Festival for a number of years and the location of your house was perfect for us. No parking hassles. If we return for the festival next year we will definitely want to stay in your home. Did I mention how much I loved sipping coffee and looking at all your books on home design/architecture? Thanks again for the use of your Chrystal Lantern Cottage. Best regards,

                            My husband and I loved the location of this rental. It was close to restaurants, beaches, shops, and our daughter. The owners provided amenities, such as clothes detergent, bath soaps and shampoo, saran wrap, assorted food items, and even a bottle of wine. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a clean, cozy place that seems like home.

                            We stayed @ this property for 1 month. We found the cottage to be clean, comfortable & close to the marina. Some of the good points of the property were the sunporch,( so nicely decorated), beds were extremely comfortable , TV was large & worked well, master bath included a spa tub, washer & drier were in the unit & full size, off street parking & the property was decorated with a mix of antiques & nautical decor. It did lack a microwave oven. The property is depicted accurately & the pictures are what you get. It was a nice neighborhood on a 1 way (downhill) curving street, with nice landscaping. There were many restaurants in the area. We would highly recommend the farmer's market on Saturday. We loved the pancakes @ Stacks. Tuesday's special @ Hennessey's is 2 for 1 burgers. We would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Dana Point. I would not recommend this property for people with small children.

                            Owner response: Thank you for the feedback and we are looking into installing a microwave. I hope that upon your return visit you will find a microwave ready for your use. Respectfully, Joy

                            Very charming 2-BR cottage. Lot of little touches (food, drink and spices left by previous tenants) as well as almost everything needed for beach vacation: chairs, towels, cooler, etc. Shower and tub with jets particularly nice. Spacious, well-equipped kitchen with all modern appliances (except a microwave). Both couples enjoyed natural circulation of night breezes in bedrooms. Dining for 4 worked well either at inside counter or at table on covered porch. Joy and Pat (landlords) were very responsive to all requests and really extended themselves to make us feel welcome. We would come back here in a second!

                            quiet neighborhood. House clean, well maintained. Appliances worked well. Stairs up to house were little difficult with loaded hands. Balcony a plus. We went whale/ swallow watching(successfully) picnicing and beach roaming. Easy access if avoid rush hour. A morning at "Play Town" was hit for grandkid. A very good relaxing visit with family.

                            We are so happy that we selected this cottage for our stay. When we arrived we were very please with the fact that it was as clean and neat as the photos showed. There were so many personal touches thoughtout the place that it made our stay convienient and comfortable. The contact people were also very pleasant to deal with making our decision even easier. We totally enjoyed our stay and are already making plans to return after the holidays.
