Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay a great deal. The house is as neat as a pin and has been tastefully updated. The kitchen and living room are particularly nice. The neighborhood is quiet with a great view of the ocean steps away.

During our stay, there was a problem with the heating. The owner got on it immediately and it was fixed quickly.

We hope to stay here on our next visit to Dana Point.

Great location, quiet and private.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house because I'm considering relocating and needed some time to look around and see what's available. This was a great place to stay for several weeks while I did my due diligence in the real estate market. I don't like hotels because the kitchens are useless and the staff use perfumed sprays and such and I am allergic. So the little house was perfect - good size kitchen for me and centrally located for my housing search. Owner is very responsive and has an easy access arrangement. Adequate parking. Nice TV set up in the living room. WiFi. House is well stocked with lots of towels, including beach towels. All the necessities! Grocery stores nearby and also a nice organic farmers market not too far away. Also discovered paddle boarding and just love it - short drive down to the beach where you can rent a paddle board for an hour and take off with very little instruction.

Great location but nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 2 months from October 2015 and were very pleased with the house. It is on a quiet street in the middle of the eclectic Lantern District with easy walking to shops, restaurants, beach and harbour. Very well equipped and a nice porch area at the front. Great value and good contact from the owner.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful home for 3 months and it was very comfortable. The house was in a quiet neighborhood and we were able to find everything nearby. We spent many hours on the front porch enjoying the weather and visiting the ocean. The owner was always available and easy to work with. This is one of the most well equipped homes that we have ever rented. Do not hesitate to rent this home if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway.

Our Little Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautifully appointed home and never wanted to leave!

The house is comfortable, inviting and immaculate. The beach, marina and restaurants are all less than a 5 minute drive away. We love to sight see and found that Dana Point is the perfect destination for us. Just over an hour away from both, Los Angeles and San Diego allows us to take many day trips and then come back to our quiet nook! We plan to come back to this glorious casita every year! We are so glad to have found our little oasis on Formosa!

Great beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our weekend getaway to this quiet little beach house. We live in Los Angeles and needed a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. This was just what the doctor ordered! Every detail about this house was perfect. It's beautifully decorated, clean and refreshing. It has every amenity you need to make you feel at home, but with the plush quality of a high-end hotel. The beds were comfy. The patio a nice place to have a cocktail. And great family-friendly beaches just a quick little car ride away. We also enjoyed several of the local restaurants nearby and there's also grocery, liquor and even Starbucks nearby. You will not be disappointed!
