Doheny Beach house description

Ocean front. The house is built on the beach, and step off the porch onto the sand. House can be split in the winter months but is rented with all 8 bedrooms during the summer and holidays. Saturday arrival required June through Labor day. The sound of the waves at night, and the views are unforgettable.

The house is located on Capistrano Bay, one mile south of Dana Point Harbor. The harbor is an easy walk/bike ride away, and is terrific for restaurants, jet ski rental, fishing trips, whale watching and the catalina express. Dolphin pods frequent the bay in front of the house, and you may be lucky enough to be a part of their day! We are 35 miles south of Disneyland, and 55 miles north of San Diego.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: I am a retired Beach Bum where the biggest decision I make is 'which beach?'

                      Why the Owner Chose Doheny Beach:
                      I grew up here, and I just love Capistrano Beach. It is the birthplace of surfing. This section of California is one of the last true surf communities left in the state, and does not have the urban feel or Los Angeles, San Diego or Newport Beach. Come here to relax, be with family, and nurture relationships.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The weather is fantastic and the walks are terrific.
