BEST Vacation Rental EVER!!
"This was our first all family Trip to California. While we were in California 10 days we only got to spend 4 days in Dana Point. We all hated to leave Villa Tortuga!
The condo was absolutely beautiful and it was in the perfect location. We couldn't believe all of the ammenities- top notch, and Gus has thought of everything! (I really mean EVERYTHING! I expected things like beach towels and some equipment; but first aid kit, binoculars, pantry items? WOW!)
We had breakfast on the airy deck and dinner in the spacious dining area. WiFi worked well and there were plenty of DVDs as well as books and magazines. Gus has all the information you need printed up and well organized. The beach is wonderful and just a short walk (or taxi ride) to the Ritz Carlton, where we attended a wedding.
The location is also very close to the harbor and the Ocean Institute. We got to see some of the tall ships while we attended a reception there.
Maybe I shouldn't say so many good things about this condo-- it might not be available next time we want to stay in Dana Point.
Exceptional place, Gus. You really have a winner in Villa Tortuga."

"I stayed at this condo during May and loved every minute of it. It is literally right across the street from the entrance to Strands Beach, is very quiet, and had everything I could ever want or need while I was there. Everything in the unit worked perfectly. The ocean breezes blow right through the unit creating a beautiful cool retreat. The best part was the wonderful patio off the master bedroom that had a direct view of the sunset over the ocean. I would stay here over and over again!"

"The condo is in a fantastic location. Right across the street from the beach entrance. The beach was gorgeous and the waves were perfect for boogie boarding. We traveled with our two daughters and our chihuahua, and the condo had everything we could possibly need. Beach toys, boogie boards, fans, washer and dryer, beach towels, board games.....the list goes on and on. The beds were very comfortable and that was an added bonus. We would absolutely stay there again."

"Nothing could have been better for our Mother and Daughters getaway! The unit was spic and span, totally charming and obviously decorated with loving care. From the patio we were able to see a great view of the ocean and with a short walk down the street, we were treated to exquisite sunsets. The owner was so thoughtful and very attentive to our needs. We felt welcome! We felt pampered! We enjoyed our stay immensely and eagerly look forward to the next one!"
