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!!!"

"I stayed at this condo for about 45 days during March and April 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. I would stay here over and over 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!"

"Our family had a very comfortable vacation while staying at Bandit's Cove. The ocean breezes and beautiful surroundings added to our experience. The condo was very clean and everything that our family needed was there on the premises. The furniture was comfortable and the decor was lovely. I would recommend this condo to others who are looking for a rental which exceeds your expectations."
