Car: Recommended

This home is so conveniently located, it is just 2.2 miles from Dana Point Harbor and 3.1 miles from Doheny Beach State Park. At the Harbor there are many waterfront restaurants and all sorts of activities to do besides shopping. Catch a boat to go fishing, or whale watching or just to enjoy the coastline and the sunset. Or catch the Catalina Express for a day at the Catalina Island and all its charm. You can also rent an small boat or a kayak to cruise the harbor or practice paddle boarding on its calm waters. On your stay, do not miss a trip to San Juan Capistrano at only 5.4 miles. There you can explore the famous Spanish Mission of San Juan Capistrano and tour the well preserved town from the 1700's, there is plenty to do around there, from antiquing shopping to fine dining. There are equestrian stables where you can do horseback riding. Only 4 - 7 miles north you will find the unique town of Laguna Beach, with its many art galleries and museums, shops and restaurants, and its stunning and pristine coves and beaches. You can explore all it has to offer just using the free shuttle system that travels up and down the Pacific Coast Highway during the summer months. It is easy, convenient and fun. There are many art and music festivals throughout the year in Laguna Beach and Dana Point, like the “Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters”, “Sawdust Festival”, “Laguna Canyon Festival” in Laguna Beach and “Tall Ship Festival”, “Festival of Whales” and “Doheny Blues Festival” in Dana Point, just to mention a few. Other local charming small towns around are worth a visit and offer so much to explore. For example, San Clemente is only 8.2 miles south, with its Pier, beautiful and historic downtown, “Casa Romantica” Museum, and their surfing beaches. Crystal Cove State Park is only 9.2 miles north. This state park offers so unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean, you can enjoy the beach and all it has to offer, you can also enjoy the views from many of the hiking trails available in the park. Also a must see is a visit to the Historic District where you can enjoy southern California community as it was back 60 years ago, a lay back community for relaxing and fun under the sun.

Other local towns and interesting areas to explore are Corona del Mar and Newport Beach (13 miles north), and Huntington Beach (26 miles north). There you can find beaches, waterfront world class dinning, outdoors fun, shops, museums and plenty nightlife.

A trip to Southern California must include a visit to Disneyland and California Adventure. Both parks are only 30 miles away. It doesn't matter your age; Disneyland and California Adventure have something for everyone! Other Theme Parks and attractions are also near, like Knott’s Berry Farm, Soak City Water Park and Legoland (30 - 35 miles). Carlsbad and Oceanside are also nearby towns with local beach charm, outlet shopping and great restaurants. There are also many state and National parks and preserves, botanical gardens and natural wildlife refuges to observe nature in action. Like the Crystal Cove State Park, Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and Aliso and Wood Canyons wilderness Park. The famous Long Beach Aquarium, Queen Mary and Waterfront Center are only 45 miles away. Hollywood Boulevard, Universal Studios, Disney Concert Hall and Downtown Los Angeles and the world famous Santa Monica Pier and park; where you can catch a glimpse of the sign that marks the beginning of Route 66 as well as the famous Hollywood sign are located 54 - 60 miles north. Wine testing and Hot Air Balloon Rides in Temecula are only 40 miles away also. Also the Condo is only 5 miles from the San Juan Capistrano Metrolink/Amtrak Train Station, where you can catch a train ride to Downtown Los Angeles, Universal Studios, Angels Anaheim Baseball Stadium, or to Downtown San Diego, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo or Sea World. You will be in close proximity to the two major city hubs of Los Angeles and San Diego without the burdening rush, crowded and busy feeling of the city. So enjoy the city for a day and relax for the next two days!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My name is Montse Gray, I am originally from Spain, but have been living in Southern California since I married Doug, a California native, more than 21 years ago. We have 2 very active teen age kids, that surely keep us busy. We love living here, we feel that we always live in a 'vacation mode'. The weather, the beaches and the dynamics of the area attracted us to stay here. We love dogs, hiking and sightseeing, We love the arts and the art scene and enjoy very much all the multiple cultural events this area has to offer. The property was recently purchased, for personal and family enjoyment but is been rented during the time is vacant. We love Dana Point, because is so conveniently located, it has easy access to all the conveniences of a regular daily/family life, with amazing schools, shopping, resources and cultural venues, easy access to major highways and attractions but close enough to stunning beaches, restaurants and parks. It is less crowded than other nearby areas and parking is easy and abundant. We love the fact that the property is just a few steps to the beach. We love the two outdoor patios. The complex has a recreational pool and spa facilities, it is quiet, and very cozy.

Why Other Dana Point Properties:
We have been living in Southern California for many years and since we lived here, we always wanted to buy a beach property and this area was our first priority in the list. We love the quiet area, the easy and close access to the beach, the feel of the community, and the well kept grounds of the complex. We love the proximity to the beach together with a high quality of regular family life. The schools are on the top of the country, all the neighboring communities are pristine, safe and full of community events and cultural opportunities hard to match. It is like a dream to live so close to major important hub cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, and at the same time feels like a permanent vacation. The weather is hard to top, mild wonderful summers and lovely mild winters with pretty much 365 days of balmy temperatures average and sunny clear skies. Also it is hard to get bored in Southern California, if one is tired of the beach scene, just one hour drive east awaits the incredibly beautiful desert scenery; just one hour and a half north east or south east awaits the mountain-forestry scene.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love this Condo because is so cozy and homey, it feels just the right size and the right location. Love to relax by the patios, watch the sunsets, listen to the chirping birds happily dancing in the trees at sunrise. Love the relaxing atmosphere.
