This vacation rental is beautiful and has everything you need for a relaxing stay near the ocean. There was plenty of parking, the apartment is ground level, with only a couple of small steps which makes it easy to load/unload your car. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable, plenty of extra sheets, blankets and towels. The kitchen is brand new and well stocked. Having a washer and dryer right off the patio was especially handy. We used the beach chairs and boogie boards for our trip to the beach (a 3 minute car ride away). Very lovely rental.

All you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for nine days and it was nearly perfect.

The rooms and closets have a good size and the kitchen is well equipped. Our daily walk through the Ritz Pointe community to the beach and back was very relaxing. We loved to sit outside in the morning for breakfast, unfortunately the traffic noise disturbs sometimes.

All in all it was a wonderful vacation. It was the first time booking on "vrbo" and it was a great customer support, thank you all, especially Cynthia Carol and Ann Marie for help.

Nice regards from Hamburg, Germany

lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa de Awesome. It is a lovely place and very comfortable. The rooms and closets are a very nice size and the 3 doors to the balcony allow the lovely breezes in, the kitchen is well equipped. Any concerns that popped up (and there were only a couple) were quickly taken care of by Cynthia, she is very gracious and efficient. It is a quiet location with no bothersome noise. We enjoyed it very much and look forward to our next visits. The only suggestions we have are the dining room chairs are a little tired and the outdoor seating area could us a bit of comfortable seating. It was a lovely visit. Val and Bill

Best beach vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Location and management were the key to our successful stay, but the amenities and little details added the finishing touches to this spacious and clean condo.

Beach walk was super pleasant down through the neighborhood/golf course and the proximity to the trolley station came in handy. 5-10 minute drive to shopping, great selection of restaurants and any services you might need during your stay. Close to both Dana Point and Laguna, so lots to do.

The condo was outfitted with all the modern conveniences, including small appliances, beach gear and towels. The decor was lovely and the layout suited our party of 6 perfectly. We loved sitting outside on the balcony in the morning sun and enjoyed the full-sized washer and dryer in the room adjacent. The living room was good sized with enough seating and the galley kitchen was bright with plenty of room for everyone at meal time.

Location of the unit within the complex was convenient with ample parking. We hit the pool and hot tubs almost every day and appreciated the clean grounds and courteous neighbors.

Management was proactive, professional and responsive. Overall the best beach rental yet!
