  • Bandit's Cove Trip

    "My husband, my teenage daughter, my Yorkie, and I had a wonderful two week stay at Bandit's Cove. This was our second year staying in the condo for two weeks in June. The condo is beautifully decorated in an ocean theme. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bedrooms have ample room. The bathrooms are very tastefully done, especially the master shower which has a beautiful glass door. There is a TV in every room. The living room and dining room are large and, again, very comfortable. The condo has two decks for sitting and relaxing or reading. We walked to the ocean view of the Strand Beach probably 4 times per day. The walkway across the top of the beach is great for walking dogs. There is also a nice hike from the condo to the top of the bluff in which you can get a panoramic view of the Strand Beach and Dana Point Harbor. From the condo to the beach is approximately a five minute walk. You can choose the stairs to the beach or take the tram down. There probably isn't a better location nor more comfortable condo in all of Dana Point."

  • Hard to beat

    "This beach house was perfect for our recent family vacation. Family of 6 a little snug but we made it work. Relaxing, right across from the beach in a quiet condo area, excellent accommodations, Alton was super easy to work with. Truly made us feel like guests, highly recommend!"

  • Lovely Island Vacation

    "We rented this wonderful historic beach home on the island this summer for the first time. It has a huge backyard that has a funky Hawaiian feel to it with palm trees, lemon and lime trees. The grill is big and new and there is a sand area for kids to play in while you barbecue and have fun. It was terrific for the 4th of July. We loved it. It has been well kept for an older home and everything is clean and the fans are fantastic and very quiet. We have been coming to the island for 50 years so we have a deep love for it. This home just fits the feel of the old Balboa. We will definitely be renting again because the price is right for this home which is just a couple of houses done from the north bay front beach. And situated a couple of streets over from the Main Street with its restaurants made it a perfect place. Especially when you have a craving for a balboa bar at night before walking the island. The owner is just great to work with."

  • Great for families

    "A wonderful trip for our group. 3 families with kids ages 7-16. Nice location and right on the beach. We had many excursions planned but the kids were having so much fun they never wanted to leave the house. Volleyball in front, pool table, loft accommodations for the kids. Plenty of beds. House fully equipped with too many amenities to mention, plenty of towels. 2 kitchens and washer and dryer were a plus. Check in and check out were very easy. We have stayed in homes all over the world, all have been nice for the experience, however this is the first one that everyone wants to come back to. Not just the area and beach, but the house. Would have liked to stay longer. Jason was always quick to respond when needed. A+ vacation."
