About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Crashing Waves Cabana LLC, welcomes you to Salt Creek Beach, the most beautiful beach in California. This newly remodeled 1100 square foot two bedroom two bathroom luxury condominium is ideally located west of Pacific Coast Highway and is a short five minute walk to the third best rated beach in the United States, according to the Men's Journal Magazine. We are located one mile south of Laguna Beach, just north of Dana Point. Many celebrities have beach homes in the area used to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

Both the Ritz Carlton and the St. Regis have developed world class five-star resorts in our community to take advantage of this beautiful beach paradise. In fact we share a beach with the Ritz Carlton Laguna. Having traveled extensively around the world, we worked diligently to think of everything you will need to have the best vacation ever, in a cost effective manner. We designed our home to be peaceful, romantic and yet cozy.

The main living space offers beautiful Spanish tile, a gourmet French Country kitchen, artwork by local artists, a 55 inch LCD Big Screen TV, and two very comfortable couches. The kitchen has all of the utensils and appliances you will need to cook wonderful meals, and the dining area seats four.

The master bedroom offers gorgeous tile floors, a queen-sized bed with finely appointed 500 thread count Macy’s linens, and a 42 inch flat screen LCD-TV. The master bathroom is spa like, with Italian tile and a Jacuzzi soaking tub. There is also a wonderful outdoor lanai off the master suite. Our second bedroom also offers beautiful tile floors and a 42 inch flat screen TV. The bedroom can be set up to accommodate two twin beds, a Day-Bed or we can join the two twin beds to make California king. This room also offers a wonderful outdoor lanai.

Our location is ideal, with everything you need close by. There are over 40 casual to upscale restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries within a five minute stroll. The world famous art colony, Laguna Beach, is one miles to the North. Historic San Juan Capistrano is four miles East. Catalina Island is a 1-hour ferry ride from our harbor.

Compare our beautiful decor and family-friendly condo to any local hotel or vacation rental and we are confident you will want to stay with us. Our goal is to provide you an environment that will help to create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Arrived nervous, left happy !

  • 4 of 5

We booked for all of March and after a less than pleasant one night hotel stay we made our first visit to Dana Point and it won't be our last . The area is gorgeous and the condo is nicely situated within walking distance of everything . The bedrooms were comfy with lots of closet space, the bathrooms bright and clean and the kitchen well equipped. The patio decks were small but adequate for the two of us . We had some glitches : the microwave door was damaged on the inside, the washing machine wouldn't fill with water properly and there was no vacuum cleaner handy, but as soon as we contacted Jason and Shilpa they had the washer fixed , sent over a brand new vacuum and had a brand new microwave delivered and installed ! Shilpa even dropped by to make sure everything was satisfactory. Getting response to our concerns allowed us to focus on our vacation and we had a great time. The only downside was the bad cell phone reception in the unit, so we did all our calls by poolside . Problem solved ! We'd be happy to recommend this rental to anyone who likes to be close to nature without being far from civilization.

Very Low Quality

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in January and February. The owners did not answer any messages sent to them after they got our money until just prior to our arrival, and then only after repeated requests for information. As it was, they gave us the wrong code for the door and we waited four and a half hours in the cold parking lot because they would not take our calls. Once we were finally in, we found the condo to be uncomfortable, cheaply furnished and poorly kept up. We complained to the maintenance man about bugs (silverfish), but nothing was done. They even forgot to return our security deposit until we asked for it. Overall, a miserable stay.

Good location

  • 3 of 5

This apt was comfortable and the owners were very responsive to our needs but the place needs some updating - a new dishwasher, new china, new cutlery and new bedding for sure. The matresses were comfortable but the pillows, duvet covers and sheets were old and tired. The old barbecue gave up the ghost towards the end of the visit but the owner replaced it with a new one.

Our condo location was just what we had hoped for, being close to the ocean and small town of Dana Point. Our owner was prompt when we needed "things", however I was surprised that we needed things like spoons, extra glasses, etc. the refrigerator drawers were broken as was the slide on the range drawer, and rather awkward to use. The didn't get repaired while we were there, though we put it on our "problem" list, and emailed it to the owner. We loved the ocean breezes, the sunsets, all the TV's , the easy to sweep tile floors, and proximity to Salt Creek!

Celebrated 50 year anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

Wow it was wonderful! Very clean, inviting and so quiet and private. Everything was there for your use and convenient. Kitchen spotless - beds comfy, pillows galore lol! Lovely clean floors all that it says it is. A short walk to the beach to see the beautiful sun rise or sun sets - which ever you prefer - you will not be sorry the view is beautiful. Enjoy your walks - everything seems to be safe there. A word of wisdom; make sure you but your insurance that is offered to you. Accidents do unexpectly happen and we for one are very happy we

did. The landlords are great and will get back to you - we never got to meet ours but talk plenty to him - a very kind man. Wish I could say more about his kindness toward us.
