Property description

MINIMUM STAY & RATE QUOTE:

CONTACT US DIRECTLY with your requested dates for an ACCURATE QUOTE! The Rate posted on this site is the Base Rate for 8 out of 12 months annually. Spring & Summer rates are higher. City ordinance restricts us from posting rates that reflect how prices adjust from week to week . Because rates vary from week to week depending on the time of the year (early summer, peak summer, end of summer, etc...), it's best to contact us for a quote. For example: A stay beginning in May will be less than a stay that begins mid June. Stays of 30 nights or longer offer the best value.


STRANDS BEACH DANA POINT (California Beach Retreat - Near Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, St. Regis at Monarch Beach and Laguna Beach.

LOCATION
As you pull off of Pacific Coast Highway on to our palm lined street, you have the ocean to the right and our condominium complex, Niguel Beach Terrace, on the left. At this point you are 'steps' away from the Strands Beach at Salt Creek Beach Park.

This area of Dana Point with it prominent coastal bluffs, is also known as The Headlands and is part of what is referred to as the 'Gold Coast' or 'California Riviera'. With Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south, our California Beach Retreat is the ideal location for your Southern CA visit. You are central to all of Southern California! 60 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 60 miles from Sea World in San Diego.

Sixty-eight miles to Universal Studios Hollywood, 33 miles to Disneyland Resort, 25 miles to John Wayne Airport, 5 miles to Laguna Beach, 5 miles to Mission San Juan Capistrano, 80 miles to Tijuana Mexico!

BEACH
The Strands Beach is actually the Southern portion of the Salt Creek Beach Park. It is a highly regarded surfing beach that consistently rates an A+ in water quality. It is not unusual to see dolphins or an occasional sea lion while visiting the beach. This is the same beach that guests from the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and The St. Regis at Monarch Beach use.

OUR BEACH HOME
First let me say this, 'We Love this Place!' Every time we visit we feel as though we are away on a vacation. That being said, we set out to transform this place into our our ultimate Beach Home. We were fortunate to have a professional designer in the family to guide us through an extensive renovation of our Beach House. The end result is a warm, comfortable feel where 'coastal elements' abound.

LIVING ROOM
Entering this upper unit you will see floors with a beachwood look throughout, counter-tops with seafoam colored granite, glass tiles with the iridescence of abalone shells. Vaulted ceilings with recessed halogen lighting, plantation shutters give you the ability to control the abundant natural lighting, ceiling fans, an open floor plan integrates the kitchen with the living room.

A large deck adjacent to the kitchen and the master bedroom accommodates the gas barbeque. Adjacent to the living room area is another large deck with a small table and seating. Large sliding patio doors access each deck. Rounding out the living room is a queen size sleeper sofa, a large LCD TV, a Wii gaming system and a music player for CD's or your iPhone. Several DVD titles, CD's and some Wii games are provided for your enjoyment.

GUEST BEDROOM
Next is the guest bedroom and bathroom. This large room also has vaulted ceilings with recessed lighting, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, a designer ceiling fan, shutters and very good natural lighting. A large sliding patio door accesses the South facing deck. A TV with a DVD player and a clock radio are provided. The bathroom features a glass tile lined shower, frame-less glass shower door, limestone floors, granite counter-tops and a tumbled marble back splash.

MASTER BEDROOM
The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a king size canopy bed, designer fan, recessed lighting, a 32' LCV TV, clock radio, a large sliding patio door with access to the East facing deck. This large room has connected master bathroom with a glass tile lined shower, limestone flooring, granite counter-tops, tumbled marble back splash and a vanity area with seating. We believe this is the largest bathroom in the Niguel Beach Terrace complex.

KITCHEN
The kitchen was designed to integrate with the main living areas. From the kitchen you will be able to view both decks and be fully involved in any conversation taking place in the living room. Quality appliances, well equipped with most every detail provided.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: Young, fresh out of college, my cousin and I though it would be great to have a place by the beach. So when the opportunity presented itself, we jumped at it. All the same, the financial committment was quite a strain back then. Fast forward 32+ years and the once sleepy, little beach town is now part of the 'Gold Coast', home to the 4 & 5 Star resorts. Additionally, our complex is adjacent to a new billion dollar residential development, The Strand at the Headlands. We have taken our 25 yrs of savings and transformed our 1983 condo into a new, upscale, high quality vacation home. Be sure to read our guest comments!

Why the Owner Chose Lantern Village (Dana Point, CA, USA):
Again, we purchased this home long before we ever imagined it as a vacation home. As the trend toward vacations homes grew, we saw it as a natural for this location. We have one of the finest beaches, not to mention one of the cleanest, in Southern CA at our steps. Having experienced vacation rentals at the ski slopes and other resort locations, we had a pretty good idea of what not to do. Our vacation home was remodeled from the ground up with the short term guest in mind. Extremely clean, redesigned floor plan to open and connect living space, larger bathroom, extremely comfortable beds, high quality throughout.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Quiet, spacious, comfortable, very clean! No discarded/used furnishings from home. Everything was purchased new and is of quality at this vacation home. Going to the beach? We have the towels, cooler, umbrella, boogey boards, sand toys, chairs. Cooking? We have all of the spices, olive oil, quality cookware and utinsels. Large washer & dryer. Games, DVD's, Cable HDTV, internet, and a Nintendo Wii for your evening entertainment. Much More!!
