We rented this condo for the month of July 2015. This is a beautiful, nicely decorated, clean unit. Beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with the necessities. The complex is well maintained and the residents are friendly. Great location for walking, hiking, enjoying sunsets and 4th of July fireworks. You can't beat the convenience of the location to the beach and town. We truly enjoyed our stay at Nalu Sunset and look forward to future visits.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Nalu Sunset the month of February. This was our fourth trip to the area, our third in this complex and first in Nalu Sunset. Though we liked our previous unit, we were looking for something a little larger. We made an excellent choice. This is a great location for getting around southern CA. Easy access to the 5 and PCH so gettting to Disneyland, San Diego and beach cities is very convenient. The size of the condo was great for the 2 of us and even better when our daughter, her husband and our 2 granddaughters visited. The girls really liked having their own room and own beds. The condo itself was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The recent make-over was extremely nice, especially the kitchen. This unit is ideal for longer term as well as short term stays. We would definitely consider staying at Nalu Sunset again when in the area. It was as advertised.

A happy holiday

  • 5 of 5

This condo really added to our holiday experience. Great location, had any and all amenities we could have asked for. We were traveling with another couple and the condo provided a great way to hang out and relax together during the down time of our trip. Charming decor and really comfortable beds. Hot tub in the main pool area was a bonus. We will definitely be returning next time we visit the area.

Perfect Beach Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath beach condo is perfect for a relaxing beach vacation. There is a plaque on the patio that really says it all…”If life is the journey the BEACH should be the destination!”

My husband and I don’t get away as much as we would like but when we do we always make it a beach location. This is now one of our go to locations, we stayed on two separate occasions, the first for 10 days in July and enjoyed it so much we returned for another 7 days in August.

Our children are grown with children of their own and this place would be perfect for a wonderful extended family vacation. We could fit everyone (8 all together) here comfortably and cost effective, we are looking into booking next summer.

This is a perfect beach destination, which is right across the street. There is no need to fight for a parking space - just park at the condo and walk. The convenient elevator makes it easy to take beach chairs, gear, etc. The condo is an end unit which provides a beautiful view of the ocean with a lovely patio off the master bedroom which is perfect for starting the day with a morning cup of coffee and sunrise or ending the day with a lovely glass of wine and sunset.

The fully supplied kitchen is perfect and only required us to supply food. The gas BBQ is very nice and located nicely on the patio off the kitchen, it was so nice not having to deal with charcoal and lighter fluid. They have even provide BBQ utensils and oven mitts specially for BBQ use! It was great to cook on this BBQ without my hands getting to hot or burning my skin. I loved that there was a washer and dryer for our use. This is one convenience I insist on when we rent vacation homes. I don’t like to bring too much stuff and with the ability to wash clothes during vacation I can having everything clean before I go home. Making the return home from vacation much more relaxing.

The lovely décor offers soothing colors and ocean theme, the pictures on the website do not do this place justice. The furniture is comfortable and inviting, the beds are some of the best we have slept in on vacation, it felt like we were at home during our stay.

This is truly a destination sight with nice restaurants from casual dining to high end steak houses. The area offers a variety of activities for all ages. Close enough to the harbor to catch whale and dolphin tours, one of our favorites things to do. The beach is secluded and lovely for romantic walks in th

Great Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable Condo. Best feature without a doubt is that a terrific beach is right across the street. You can come and go with ease. We cooked many a meal in the condo kitchen or on the patio grille. Everything you might need for cooking and eating is available. There are many fun options (whale/dolphin excursions, sailing, paddle boards, kayaks, etc) available at the Dana Point Harbor, which is 5 minutes away. Also very close to many restaurants and a grocery store. My kids favorite place to eat was breakfast at "Stacks".

Charming Beach Condo Rental- was the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place to vacation! My husband and I stayed at this lovely 3-bedroom beach condo with our 2 kids and his parents. We were so impressed by how spacious and beautiful the condo was. It's much bigger than it appears in the photos and it's part of a beautiful complex. Situated right across from the beautiful Strand Beach, you could not get a better spot. The place is decorated in calming blue and green hues with charming artwork and decor that is all beach themed. The bedding is each bedroom is gorgeous, the mattresses are SO comfortable and everything was extremely clean and fresh. The kitchen came fully equipped with all of the necessary amenities along with a BBQ outside. There are 2 patios- one that looks out to the ocean. It's so picturesque and only 8 of the condos in the complex have an oceanfront view. There is a nice-sized dining table that is situated between the kitchen and the living room (which has a large flat screen TV). Having a washer and dryer was extremely convenient as well as wireless internet. We truly enjoyed the clubhouse which has a nice sized pool and jacuzzi. We went to the beach or the pool everyday but were so happy to come back to such a charming and beautiful space. There are many restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The Property Manager is a dream to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed for a wonderful time. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, a family vacation or just a little R&R, this is a fantastic place to stay. We plan to go back next year and hopefully every year after that!
