About Edwin Wright
This has always been my dream home where I will retire with my wife someday. I have been an active residential Real estate Broker since 1982 and operate a local Real Estate company. We enjoy the vacation rental business with our Dana Point and Big Bear Lake homes. We try to enjoy the best of all seasons. As I am a long time resident of Dana Point and the surrounding Orange County area, feel free to use me as your concierge at any time. I have put together a brief overview of some of the places to visit and things to do while you are visiting our wonderful coast community. Go to the guide and this site.
Edwin Wright purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Edwin Wright chose Lantern Village
This cottage is located in the heart of Dana Point! With an ideal location—a 5 minute walk finds you at the nearby town centers, and local restaurants. Down the street, is Dana Point Harbor—with many additional amenities for a fun get-away! The famous Doheny Beach where the singing group "The Beach Boys" got there start singing and living the surf life style.
What makes this Cottage unique
The home has a warm and inviting feeling, It is a one story cottage with wood beam ceilings and wood surfaced walls. The interior has been recently upgraded along with a new kitchen with granite countertops. The spacious bathroom has also been upgraded to include granite countertop and ceramic tiled custom shower. It is perfect for a relaxing get away. Whether you're resting in the lush tropical landscaped front and rear yards, walking to the beach, playing at the beach or enjoying the local cuisine, there is no shortage of near by activities.

Comfortable, convenient, nicely furnished with fun, inspirational art.
Cottage is surprisingly spacious and well stocked for a comfortable family stay. Two car parking behind is especially convenient as street parking fills up. Second bedroom has bunk beds (as advertised) - probably more comfortable for children/youth than for an adult couple. Bedroom with queen bed is very comfortable, with lots of closet /storage space.
Host (Ed) was very accessible and quick to respond to questions. We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for your review and hope to see you again in the future.
This house worked out perfectly for us. It is close to everything and within walking distance. Thanks again Ed.
Thank you for your review. Look forward to your return.
It’s great place to stay!
Everything was excellent.
Cute cottage at Dana
We visit Dana Point almost every year from Australia, we have tried to be able to rent Ed’s house several times but our timing hasn’t worked out with availability, but this year we managed to secure it for two weeks. A very cute cosy cottage, which was fantastic as in June this year the weather was very cool. Ed greeted us and showed us around his lovely cottage and gave us great tips of where to go and what we could do in the DP area.
The location was perfect, so close to Hennessy’s where we enjoyed going for the 2 4 1 burgers on a Tuesday, and grooved to Flock of 80’s on a Sunday afternoon. Each morning we walked down to the stairs in the harbor and attempted to keep our holiday weight in check! Breakfast at RJ’s is a must try. Beautiful walks all around Dana. We also loved the San Juan Capistrano area, a short Uber trip (if you like to enjoy a few beverages) away, Swallows is loads of fun, and Trevor at the Tracks is a great place to eat, drink and enjoy the ambience!
We will definitely be back!
Thanks so much Ed!
We truly enjoyed our stay at The Cottage By The Harbor. The cottage is lovely, well- stocked with all you could possibly need, and in the perfect location.
The outdoor spaces are wonderful - beautifully landscaped, peaceful, and private. The off- street parking is a plus. You can tell that a lot of care went into making the cottage a special retreat for guests.
It was a pleasure meeting the owner. He was so welcoming and helpful. Hope to return to Dana Point soon.
This is a well established beach community. a short distance away is Historical San Juan Capistrano Mission, Laguna Beach Art Festival and San Clemente Pier. Stay locally in Dana Point and enjoy pristine beaches, harbor activities and the historic Pilgrim square sail boat. Concerts at the park during the summer within a short walk. Whale watching cruises are well worth your time or take a day tip to Catalina Island from the ferry departing Dana Point Harbor daily.
