"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 Location, Great Condo, Hospitable Owners
"We spent Thanksgiving week at this condo, and had an amazing time. With 4 growing sons we always need extra space and this condo was perfect for us. Everything was clean, even the complex itself is very well kept. Several recent updates are obvious, the pool and hot tub were a bonus - neighbors very friendly. This location is outstanding. I'm so glad we found Dana Point and the Strand Beach park. It was very quiet and you feel very safe and secure - walking to the beach couldn't be easier and location situated conveniently between LA and San Diego made exploring simple and yet the cost was more affordable than pricier towns nearby. We would like to do this exact trip again next year. The owners graciously answered my questions about the area and gave suggestions for hiking and restaurants and transportation. We had maybe the best vacation in years because this was such a relaxing home base. Thanks Aaron!"

"This place is great! Better than the description! This was our first booking through this site and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Upon entering, it really is a luxury condo. We had our 1 year old son with us and they had everything we needed for him. Everything you could need was provided. Walking distance to the beach (though it is a hike back up). Nice pool and hot tub area. Great location in Dana point, near Laguna beach. I would absolutely recommend this place and hope to be back soon!"
