Beautiful condo in Dana Point. Plus Pete the owner was very nice and easy to arrange our stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this wonderful condo. We loved sitting outside on the porch drinking coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The beach was very close and was very beautiful, we even saw a sea lion. We highly recommend the nature hike that starts at Strand beach.

Truly excellent condo

This rental was exceptionally clean and well stocked. The owners could not have been nicer or more responsive. The location was beautiful and very quiet. I would recommend this rental to anyone and I would rent it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything!

Had the best week stay in California

  • 5 of 5

Walking in to Pete and Laurie's gorgeous condo was better than advertised. They had a phenomenal place, totally re-done and updated, and the location of Dana Point could not have been better. Traffic in Dana Point is minimal, easy to get around, the harbor is beautiful, and easy access back to the Route 5 main expressway. Pete and Laurie had beach towels for us to use, boogie boards, hair dryer, and wifi to name a few things we utlizied. The condo pool/hot-tub was close by, and fun to use, and your own parking spot was close by. Don't forget about the beach, right across the street and views are breath-taking. Hope to come back soon, highly recommend this unit to anyone. Chris and Julie

Great for family get-away

  • 5 of 5

My parents (80 years old), my husband and I were very comfortable in this well-appointed home near the beach. Almost everything - anything important - is new, nice-looking and well-functioning. Everything was better than expected. The owner was great to work with. We could've stayed much, much longer. Seems like a great deal, too!

fun, fun, fun

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful experience for me and my family. The condo was perfect and Mr. Marin and his wife were awesome. They were very helpful and their condo is so nice. My kids are still talking about our vacation. The walk to the beach was not bad at all and the beach is so beautiful. The condo had everything we needed for the time we were there. We even had beach toys and boogie boards and beach towels. Everyone was comfortable and the beds were great. We plan on coming back again and again and staying in this condo. Dana Point is such a nice area and this will be a family vacation we will remember for many years.
