  • Absolutely Awesome 5 Star Beach Condo

    "We totally enjoyed our stay at the Dana Point beach condo. The condo is completely furnished with everything you could possibly need including upscale linens, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, cookie sheets, 3 flat screen TVs, DVD blue ray player, wireless internet, and BBQ. It really feels like a home and would be so easy to live there permanently. The condo has light coming in from three sides in the living room making it bright and inviting with a very open feeling. Off the living room is a patio and off the dining area is a large patio with grill for BBQing. The condo is very comfortable. There is a large leather recliner chair and very nice sofa in the living room. The bathrooms are very well stocked with all the cleaning products you need and first aid kit, toilet paper, tissues, and liquid soap and lotion. I have never stayed anywhere that was so well stocked with everything you need. Everything has been thought of to the last detail. My favorite was the big refrigerator. I have always had a side by side refrigerator but this freezer on top style holds so much more. Tall bottles of wine or soda fit right in the door. It is also a very quiet area. You never really hear anyone or any cars. He grounds are nicely landscaped and the pool area was fun to use. There is a spa at the pool and another spa area as well. The beautiful strands beach is right across the street and we walked the beach every single day. There is also a trail up at the top of Strand road that goes out along the point and comes around to overlook the Dana Point harbor and it circles back toward the condos. People walk their dogs by the beach everyday and you can meet many people who come to enjoy the view, especially at sunset. It was whale watching season so we saw many whales spouting through their blow holes and breaching. Also we spotted dolphins swimming near the shore. We hated to leave as it was such a wonderful place to be! Also the owners have provided information on restaurants nearby that are their favorites. If you search prices you will not find a place as nice as the beach condo. I know as I searched Huntington Beach and San Clemente. So I highly recommend the beach condo. Did I say how tastefully decorated it is? I am missing it already! Also I should mention how easy it was to check in and check out with Steve and Laurie's daughter Katie. We enjoyed getting to know her a little. Everything has been thought of to make your stay absolutely awesome!!!"

  • Wonderful place for a small family

    "This condo unit was perfect for our family of four for a week in Orange County. It was a short ride to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm and the beach was spectacular all week. Strands beach is perfect for those who like to lay out, swim, body surf, boogie board, or surf and it's a short walk from the unit. The waves were great, the beach was clean, and the sunsets were beautiful. The condo accommodations are perfect for a couple or small family. The pull out bed is ample for two and the CA King in the bedroom was comfortable. Dannelle was very accommodating and helpful in making sure everything met our needs. The kitchen was nicely set up with everything you need to cook at home. We also went out to some of the great establishments in nearby Dana Point and had great food all week. We went swimming at the beach and pool almost every day and we literally fell in love with the place. Having beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards available was a nice touch to make the place full service for enjoying the beach. I highly recommend this Condo unit as a great place for a small family or a couple. We didn't want to leave! P.S. The one and only negative review below doesn't make any sense. A small sampling of the other reviews will quickly tell you that."

  • Wonderful, wonderful vacation

    "We just returned from a week in this beautiful place. The home was more than described in VRBO. Everything was perfect - incredible ocean views, great bedrooms, terrific bathrooms. Even the sofa bed mattress was incredibly comfortable! The place came with everything - beach toys, towels, beach chairs, everything you need. In the kitchen, we even enjoyed a Keurig with all sorts of coffee and tea cups. The kitchen had everything that allowed for me to easily cook a family meal for 15 people with no problem. The grill at the unit worked great. The location of the unit is ideal. It has the best view of the ocean, and is close to not only the beach but also the pool and jacuzzi. We were there for a family reunion and our family of 5 (me, my husband, and kids 16, 15, and 12) loved the place and location. Even our extended family with much younger children, as well as retired family members thought we had the best unit in the place. Will definitely be returning here."

  • Winter Paradise

    "We have rented from VRBO many times and this condo ranks with the best. It was very clean and beautifully appointed, even nicer than the pictures indicate. My husband and I stayed for a month. We found Dana Point a winter paradise. We biked the Salt Creek Trail and walked the beach everyday. We also enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. We loved that the condo is within walking distance of the beach, the Harbor and many restaurants. The Schwack Beach Grill was our favorite casual dining restaurant. Thank you Patrick, for responding so quickly and professionally to all our questions and concerns."
