Wonderful vacation rental!
"We truly enjoyed staying here for the month of Januray. We especially liked the location, near the beach and harbor, next to a park and bike/walking trail. We used the trail and the tennis courts the most. Our condo was comfortable, clean, well stocked,quiet and has designated parking right outside. Dana Point is a fun community with great restaurants and fun activities. We went to the marina and harbor several times per week. We give Dee and her place our highest recommendation."

"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!!!"

"My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at this cozy romantic home. Evenings spent by a roaring fire, ocean breezes, smooth jazz, grilling on the deck while the surf below filled the air with ocean ambiance, was heavenly. The bed and bedding is very comfortable and the quality of the amenities and furnishings is top notch. You cannot beat the view or the location! Located on a dead end quiet stretch of prime California coast, much that surrounds you is a wild life preserve filled with walking trails. You are steps away from a trail that winds you down to a beautiful beach. We sat on the spacious deck and watched whales spout, surfers and boats, and magnificent sunsets over Catalina. This clean and comfortable home would be great for a girls weekend too. We plan to bring our kids back and take advantage of the great water toys filling the garage! This home was spacious and comfortable, relaxing and special. We didn't want to leave!"

"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."
