The home was beautiful and the kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with all necessities guests might need. We were thoroughly delighted. I have stayed in numerous other HomeAway or similar rentals and this home is, by far, the most outstanding.

This ordinary house feels like a resort!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, my family and I could not have been more pleased with our stay. If you want a feel for "southern California living" this will give you a taste of it. sunrise view, great privacy. well maintained. Our stay was worry free and complete with kitchen and washer/dryer.

BTW, don't miss all of the framed artwork on the walls, most of them are by Dan (the owner).

Thx Bonnie & Ron.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to the beach, Dana point harbor and grocery stores. It met all my families needs. The place is fully equipped with everything you need including beach toys, chairs etc.. Quiet and very peacful neighborhood with really awesome and courteous neighbors. I met property manager when we were there and he was very nice and eager to help. Owner was fantastic with her communication so I always felt informed. I usually go to Orange County 2 times a year since I love it so much and will look for this place again. Thank you again we had a fantastic time and had a first class experience with your home.

Even Better than we had imagined

  • 5 of 5

The photos and description of this SJC home are perfect! We spent 12 days in March, totally comfortable in a quiet and safe neighborhood, with well-manicured and private yards (with fruiting trees!) and EASY access to the water and restaurants at Dana Point Harbor (8 minutes down the road). The location of the little town and this home are ideal if you want to escape the madness of Southern California traffic and still be able to get to attractions easily. It was reassuring to meet Ron, the property manager, on our first day. Every comfort we could imagine was provided, including kid-stuff for the beach and a high chair, stroller, etc. Doing laundry was as easy as home, the kitchen was a dream and the air conditioning mighty (being from Colorado, the a/c is an important feature for us). Our favorite spot was the patio in the backyard, shaded by avocado trees! We truly enjoyed the lovely paintings throughout the house, right in line with the gracious furnishings and decorating. We felt spoiled to pretend we were SoCal residents this month. I wished we had brought our big kids with us to enjoy SJC and Dana Point. There was plenty of room. Thank you for sharing your beach house with us! It's simply delightful.
