We commit to providing everything you need for a great family vacation at the beach. The Sand Dollar is a perfect location for all the attractions in southern California with perfect weather year around.
Todd purchased this condo in 2010
We chose Dana Point since it had more parks, activities, restaurants and city amenities than most beach cities. Music concerts, whale festivals, outdoor movies are just a few fun activities in addition to the beach. Neighboring Laguna Beach and San Clemente expand the options with just a 15 minute drive.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: : Our condo is in Niguel Beach Terrace, directly across the street from Strands Park and the new Strands at Headland development. We share the same beach as the Ritz Carlton, at a fraction of the price. The new beach funicular is 'one of a kind' and a fun experience for young and old.
We stayed at The Sand Dollar for the holiday weekend and really enjoyed walking to the beach and down to the harbor. It was nice to stay at a place that had all the amenities. Next time we will plan to stay longer.
5 of us (3 adults/2 children)really enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar. Perfect location for beaches, restaurants, etc...Todd was always there to help us get settled in. Loved the pool too. Can't go wrong with this rental. I would stay there again!
We loved this condo. Great ground location. Quiet complex. Nice pool and hot tub. Grounds are impeccable. Walk to the beach in 2 minutes! Nicely furnished. Comfortable beds, nice bedding. Great kitchen with everything necessary for cooking. Washer and dryer. Two nice patios with grill. The location is close to all LA attractions, San Diego attractions, and everything in Orange County. My family wouldn't stay anywhere else. You shouldn't miss this great vacation rental! Todd is wonderful to work with and very responsive to all your travel needs. Two full baths with lots of towels. All the beach gear you could ever want or need is at your fingertips! Three TVs with great reception. We felt so "at home" in this condo that we didn't want to leave!
We had an amazing week at this beautiful condo. It is spacious and clean and you can tell it has been updated recently. Loved having the queen bed and bunk beds in the second room for our kids. Also loved that there was a tv in both bedrooms. Kitchen was well stocked and it was really nice to not have to bring our own beach towels, boogie boards, umbrellas, etc.... they were all provided. Todd was great to work with and we will hopefully be staying here again soon!
We were there in April this year (Sorry for the late review Todd :-)) coming from Alberta, Canada. Had everything we needed, used the beach toys and supplies, washer and dryer, kitchen, info packet and maps. It was our second trip to the area and that complex, which we have grown to love, and was awesome for our budget. The kids loved the bunk beds and it has a warm comfy feel so they felt right at home. Pool area is great, access to the beach is close and beautiful.
The area is in the middle of all the attractions for the kids, easy drives to Disneyland, Sea World, Safari Park etc. Baby Beach, coffee, restaurants and harbor are a short walk and even shorter drive away. Todd was excellent to deal with and that made everything easy and stress free. Will definitely be back and as long as Todd has it we will be staying here again.
2 Adults and 5 children (ages 12 down to 1) ... perfect for our family! Comfortable beds, nice kitchen area. Quite condo complex area, nice walk to the beach, the pictures shown are just like the unit is. Unit located on lower level, close to the parking lot, short walk through parking lot to the community condo pool was great. Walk to the beach was great! And I used the unit supplied boogie boards, which worked really well, and the beach chairs and the beach umbrella (also from the unit). We try to come down to Southern California twice a year and this has become our # 1 location unit! Best value by far in a popular location in this area. Maybe I shouldn't be so positive ... because then others will take my desired week! All good... book it and you will have a great time!
We had a wonderful stay at the Sand Dollar at the end of June 2014. I was a bit apprehensive about using VRBO or HomeAway, since we have always stayed in hotels or resorts. It turned out that I had nothing to be nervous about. The Sand Dollar was even better than the pictures and description online and Todd, the owner, was very easy to work with and provided great suggestions of things the do in the area. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance of Strand Beach, which is breathtaking. We spent most of the week at the beach, with the exception of one day at Disneyland. The condo was well equipped and even had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, a surfboard, a skim board and a cooler that we brought to the beach. The complex also has a nice pool. If you have not visited Dana Point, you should. I feel like it's a hidden gem among the OC beach towns. The harbor is so picturesque. We can't wait to return to Dana Point and the Sand Dollar!
The Sand Dollar is located across from Strands Beach in beautiful Dana Point. The area known as 'the California Riviera' shares the beach with the Ritz Carlton and St. Regis hotels. Popular Laguna Beach is nearby offering art galleries and festivals.
