About Rob Christianson

Like most families, work, kids, school and sports keep us very busy throughout the week. Our two young boys are active with many different sports and we found ourselves running from one practice to the next. We wanted to find a place where our family could go and get away from the daily grind of normal life to relax and unwind. When we found this condo, we found our paradise. It has allowed us to spend quality family time together doing activities we enjoy such as walking to the beach, cruising around on beach cruisers, hiking local trails and picnicking at Salt Creek Park while watching the sunset. We feel very lucky to have found this beach side gem. Every time we visit, we thoroughly enjoy our time and hope you do the same. Thank You for considering our "Seaside Escape" for your next vacation.

Ritz Pointe condo

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location to the beach and Monarch Bay Resort. Dana Pt is beautiful..The condo had lots of pluses, but the cons were dirty windows, noise, and lack of light bulbs, but the big thing for us was that it was so dark. The patio didn't get any sun.

The property is beautiful! Renovated bathrooms and newer kitchen. Out of a magazine! Simple & clean

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Dana point Laguna Beach area. We are a family of six coming from New Jersey. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the property very much. The walk to the beach is a bit strenuous but we enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The property is beautifully decorated, seems brand new, and impeccably clean. Lots of supermarkets and restaurants close by. We had everything we needed for the beach. Could have used a few more chairs but other than that it was perfectly stocked. There were plenty of board games and video games for kids to enjoy. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful Condo with All Amenities

  • 4 of 5

We were so pleased that the condo was very clean and beautifully renovated. Location was convenient to everything so we visited many beaches and areas. The extras were an added benefit: games, beach gear, bathroom/kitchen supplies and condiments. Rob responded immediately to my questions. Would definitely stay in this unit again.

Family Vacation to celebrate 50th Anniversary

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a convenient location to drive to nearby attractions.

Loved having dish washer and clothes washer/dryer available when we needed it. Some light bulbs need replaced, but over all we were very satisfied. The Corkill Family
