Right on the beach, this home offers plenty of activities to do without even leaving! Relax on the deck or on the sand, swim, surf, or paddle board in the ocean, take a walk or run down the beach, have a family dinner on the deck and watch the sunset, bike to the Dana Point Harbor, or even read a good book while watching birds dive in the water and dolphins play. Located on a private road, experience beachfront Orange County without crowds.
I am the trustee of my Grandparents Trust that left my family this property. I live in Cambria California and manage the property with my Cousins and siblings.
Scott McManus purchased this house in 1962
Our grandparents left us this property. My grandfather was an avid surfer and one of the founding Members of San Onofre Surfing Club. He selected this location and built a home so he could teach his children and grandchildren the sport of surfing he loves so much.
There is a great south swell surf break right in front of the house that works during the summer and fall. Mostly a Left.
The home is located in a gated community with 24 guards and a security truck that drives the property all night long. This also gives you a mostly private beach right in front of the home that is also very safe.
Having spent many weekends up and down So. Cal beaches, this means a lot. We never worried too much about the beach chairs, towels, bikes, etc.
The home was perfect for two small families (11 total). We each had our own bathroom, one located on 2nd floor, and the other on 1st floor. We put 3 little ones in the two bunk bed room that is in the first floor and pretty secluded if you needed to put kids to bed a little early.
The home has tile floors on the first floor and carpet in the rooms. It is perfect for a beach home and easy to clean.
The patio was our favorite spot of the home. It has two large tables with chairs and several benches. It also has two long recliner beach chairs. It has a propane fireplace, a BBQ for grilling, and a shower/hose to wash the sand off.
It is about a 12 ft drop off to the beach and there is no guardrail. Not dangerous unless you have really young kids. The water comes right up to the deck during high tide. And gives you about 30-40 yds of beach during low tide.
All and all the home was exactly what we were looking for. The owners were great to work with and easy to communicate with.
Take a power/surge cord with multi outlets. The home is dated and the outlets were not right by the queen beds.
Neigbors to the north were very kind and let us use some beach stuff.
Simple and easy arrival connections, and welcomed by waves rushing up to the back deck... amazing! All was in order as kids and spouses all celebrated my parents 60th anniversary together. Hard to believe that we checked in and never left the property for four days... why would you when the water is warm, the bbq is hot, and the smoothies are cold.
Enjoyed the sounds and breezes of a wonderful getaway on the beach, something we take for granted in San Diego. Owner Scott was very responsive and easy to work with, and the location cannot be beat. Will be back for a reunion, for sure!
Our Family stayed here for the weekend and from the time we arrived we were overwhelmed by the beauty of this property. The home was turn key, we brought extra appliances and kitchenware but it was unnecessary. It's a family own property and any questions we had were promptly answered. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely use this rental again.
This was a wonderful vacation home to spend a week surfing and visiting local tourist spots. Perfect location with amazing views of Dana Point and sunsets from the deck. We can't wait to visit again in the coming years! Thanks for sharing you home with our family.
This beach home is fully equipped with everything you will need while away from home. The views are stunning, plenty to do in the area. Near by stores, banks and recreational activities. If you are looking for a get away look no further you will not be disappointed!
