  • WONDERFUL SUMMER GETAWAY

    "From the moment we walked in, you could tell the owners took a lot of pride in their unit. It was clean, comfortable, and you felt very welcomed. This unit came with everything, the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry, extras of everything you might need, or forgot. Although we didn't use the boggy boards, the cooler did come in handy, as did the beach towels, and the welcome basket of fresh, homegrown, veggies was fabulous, love that stuff. Thank you. Since we live in Arizona we visit California quite often, on this trip we brought our 13 yr old grandson with us. His bedroom and ours, were both nicely sized rooms, with lots of closet space, and we each had our own bathrooms, that was a blessing for both myself and our grandson. I've always been a "water girl", no matter what type of water, lake or ocean, I love it all. When I stepped out of the living room onto one of the patios and saw the ocean, felt the breeze, that was my perfection. Morning tea, afternoon snacks, or just relaxing at the end of our busy days, it was glorious. We had a wonderful trip, and I want to Thank the owners for making it a very relaxing and more importantly, a memorable one for us all."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Property!!

    "Our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids, 16, 14 and 6 years old) stayed here 4/11/15 through 4/17/15. The condo was exactly as described in the pictures/write up. It was clean and spacious and had all the equipment I needed in the kitchen for cooking. The spas and pool were wonderful and the walk to the beach was delightful. We went to Disneyland 3 of the days and the driving from here was fine, we were never stuck in traffic and the drive time was about 40 minutes. Great restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The price and value for money is exceptional when you compare it to staying at a motel in a Disney Resort! Alex was quick to respond to all of my emails, thanks for a great stay :)!"
