About The Owner

We are long time residents of Dana Point. Both of us are local business owners and we enjoy sailing, walking, and camping.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Dana Point

Having grown up in Dana Point enjoying all the activities associated with a beach life style, our desire was to offer a vacation rental in what we consider to be one of the nicest spots in California.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being able to walk to our sailboat in Dana Harbor, walk the local beaches & Headlands trails, and shop the farmers market at Town Center on Saturdays.

Simply perfect.

  • 4 of 5

We were in Dana Point for a family wedding and this home was perfect our week long stay with our kids and grandchildren .The home was very well appointed. The owners really thought of everything . The ocean views from many of the rooms were absolutely spectacular. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

Amazing house for a long weekend with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! It was my wedding weekend and I wanted a large, comfortable, clean, and beautiful house for the long weekend to spend time with my friends and family. The pictures don't really do the house justice. The large foyer with a high ceiling is a beautiful welcome that draws you back towards the amazing ocean view visible from the front door. The living spaces are immaculately decorated with photos, paintings, and beautiful furniture. The living room couch was really comfy, and the seating in the living room overall was really perfect for a large group. The TV, stereo, and wifi worked well. Not only is the kitchen extremely well stocked and functional, but there is a list in the kitchen that describes where all the necessities are. The hosts left us a bottle of wine to enjoy, how sweet! The deck is incredible - amazing views, lounge chairs, table to eat at, a grill that works well, and a little gas fire pit. It's a perfect house for a large group, with multiple seating areas and a large and well-appointed kitchen and dining area. The bonus room on the 2nd floor was great with a queen air mattress with clearly labeled bedding. The owners leave plenty of unobtrusive labels and signs to help you find things - little details like the plug to reset the wifi if needed, how to work the stereo system, etc. - that show the detail that goes into their care of the house. The 4 bedrooms downstairs were nice, neat, and well-appointed (the bunkbed room is definitely meant for kids). Master bathroom was huge and gorgeous with a huge steam shower, white marble, great views!

Just a few small things that didn't impact this house's 5-star rating but that I thought I would mention. I wasn't a huge fan of the sleep number bed in the master bedroom, though perhaps that it just my preference for mattress. The sheets smelled a bit to perfume-y for my liking, too, but I just rewashed them with plain detergent and it was fine. There's also a mottled glass door between the master bedroom and one of the spare bedrooms. It locks from both sides and has curtains, and while you can't see through it, you can definitely hear through it and see the light from the neighboring room. I also wish the master bedroom decor and bedding was updated a bit.

Overall, it was an amazing house and stay, and the (very) few negatives were a drop in the bucket compared to everything else. Dan was kind and communicative throughout! I would definitely stay again.
