About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

As seen on the front page of OC Weekly’s "10 Coolest Airbnbs in Orange County," at the Bitchin' Beach House & Bitchin' Digs we believe that you deserve the best...the best service & the most Bitchin’ vacation rental in Southern California!

(Designed, owned & managed by Los Angeles Times featured cover story design team sisters, Bitchin' Digs!)

The Bitchin' Beach house is a very colorful, vibrant beach bungalow! It took a lot of work and heart to create this amazing environment. If you are looking for a unique experience, where your vacation home is not just a bed for the night, you have come to the right place! This house is truly a vacation in itself. Decorated and owned by professional Interior Designers/Decorators, this Caribbean-Inspired Getaway is unlike any other home. Filled with one-of-a-kind stained glass (including beautifully carved stained glass bedroom doors, dual masters - one we call the 'Captain's Room' featuring a queen bed, hanging chair hammock and a clawfoot bathtub perched on a pedestal and the other 'The Bamboo Room' has furniture taken straight from a villa in Mexico including a rocking chair and double bed handmade from bamboo.

Our 800 sq ft wraparound cobblestone porch overlooks our beautiful peaceful street and expands our bungalow into an outdoor environment, with its dining table for 12 made from 100+ yr old barn wood. Close our outdoor curtains for even more privacy as you lounge on the hanging bed and take in the scent of the fresh flowers along the perimeter of the veranda. Ahhh...

The Bitchin' Beach House is the first of many real estate and hospitality endeavors created, owned and managed by Bitchin' Digs.

About Alyssa & Tessa Hendrie

The Bitchin' Beach House is our first project of many. It is a home, a getaway, a vacation rental, a retreat... an oasis!

Our goal is to own and design properties all over the world. We want our places to be about creating a lifestyle; everyone should be able to enjoy extraordinary environments, for themselves or with their favorite people.

The Bitchin' Beach House was a rundown, cramped, depressing house and we turned it into a Caribbean-inspired getaway with room to entertain! We put our all into creating a place worth bringing people together, from the decorative pillows, right down to the studs.

In simple terms, we are very driven and passionate about taking full advantage of the senses! We love to create beautiful inspiring environments, visually, musically, scent, taste, etc... everything can, and should be, made enjoyable.

Alyssa & Tessa Hendrie purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Alyssa & Tessa Hendrie chose Lantern Village

It has almost 'seven miles of coastal bluffs and rolling hills along the Pacific Ocean with its charming beaches and wild surfs. Most noteworthy of these bluffs is a unique promontory known as the “Headlands”, which overlooks Dana Point Harbor, one of the most significant manmade alterations of the Orange County coastline.' (Quote taken from the City of Dana Point). For me personally, it was the fact that it has everything... it is within a mile of the greatest beaches in California, walking distance to the store and cute shops, it's a ten minute drive to Newport, Laguna and San Clemente. There are plenty of things to do no matter what your taste or mood. Great happy-hours, sunsets and relaxing days on the beach are endless. Who wouldn't want the quintessential Southern California Beach living experience?

What makes this cottage unique

No other rental will feel as unique as this home. There is not one cookie-cutter aspect of this bungalow. It is truly individual.

My husband and I stayed with our 4 children and absolutely loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely amazing. Definitely the coolest place we have ever stayed! Centrally located for our visits to other beach towns, a Padres game in San Diego and whale watching! We had a fabulous time. The host was very kind and quick with responses to our questions. Highly recommend!

bright and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at The Bitch'n Beach House. It was comfortable with a fun and free spirited flair.

The bungalow is in a great location and only minutes from the beach, grocery stores and restaurants.

We are a family of five so one of us slept outside on the outdoor bed/hammock which was another fun

Killer Brocation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I attended a wine charity event in Dana Point and SJC and I chose the Bitchin' Beach House as our base. Such a good call. This place is truly unique and was very cool to spend a couple nights in. It's rootsy style and feel, coupled with its perfect location made our excursion memorable! Highly recommended!

Truly Magical

  • 5 of 5

The Bitchin' Beach House was everything we anticipated and more! The house was perfectly clean, places we have stayed at in the past were not super clean... not the case here, spotless! So homey and decorated so stylishly we felt right at home. The outside space was so fun to hang out when my daughter brought friends to visit. The beds were beyond comfortable. The Beach House is close to everything but in a nice quiet residential neighborhood. I can not imagine coming to California to visit my daughter and having to stay somewhere else. We took many photos on our mini vacation I noticed a lot of them were of our Beach House ;)

Stylish surroundings and a great location. The large table on the patio was such a nice place to hang out and catch up with old friends.
