**Testimonials**

Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our time at your beach condo. Strand Beach is a beautiful beach and it was nice being so close. While we didn't have the view we had hoped to have, being walking distance certainly made up for it. And we really appreciated the?beach toys, umbrellas, beach chairs, beach towels that you provided. That was great! Our grandson had so much fun playing with all those toys. We all had a wonderful time! The condo was very clean and had most everything we needed.' - Carolyn Corona, CA, 09/07/2014

'We really enjoyed the condo in Dana Point. It was a great location for all our activites. Great with the 10 month old with the master bedroom and the private bath. The play pen worked well. Thanks much!' - Jim , Wausau, WI, 06/29/2014

'We found this property to be absolutely perfect! We only had to walk across the street to get down to the beach. The neighborhood was nice, the boys LOVED the pool, the layout of the home is perfect - having two bathrooms. I appreciated very much having the laptop that I could use - so thank you for that extra! We were THRILLED to see beach items at the home so we didn't have to buy any extra things and were very appreciative of the toiletries and cleaning supplies. We would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone. We rented it with my husband, myself, my mom and our two boys and it worked wonderfully! The area is FANTASTIC!! We never had to travel more than 10 minutes away in the whole time we were there. Everything is SO close! We will be keeping this in mind if we visit again. Jon ! Canon City, CO, 05/2014

'The check for our deposit was awaiting our return home. We appreciate it and the enjoyable time we had in your condo. We felt quite at home and will be happy to recommend your condo to anyone interested in visiting that area. Should we have the occasion to visit again, we will be in touch. Thank you.

'We very much enjoyed our vacation with the grandchildren in California. The weather was great and they enjoyed all of the activities that we were able to undertaken including the beaches, swimming pool, Disneyland and the San Diego zoo. We even took them to the museum at San Juan Capistrano. The annual return of the swallows was one of those early childhood memories of mine, so it was Grampa's time'! Doug, Canada. September, 2013

'We so enjoyed our stay at your condo. The amenities were ideal for our family of four. It is in the perfect location -- beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, close to Disneyland, and it's not too far from San Diego. The views in Dana Point are spectacular. We took advantage of a whale watching/dolphin watching excursion and ate at The Brig almost every day. We had a great time, and we sincerely appreciate letting us use your condo for our most enjoyable vacation! We will definitely consider renting this condo again. Judie Phoenix, AZ ' - Judie 05/31/2013

'I just wanted to drop you a quick Email about the Condo rental. The place was great for our needs, EXCELLENT location, very nice grounds, and so close to the beach! It was also was very clean when we got there. We all really enjoyed our stay there very much and can't wait for another opportunity to visit that area again. Also we also appreciated how organized and professional you were with regards to the rental agreement and how we enter the place as well as how to leave it. After touring much of the Southern California coast from LA to San Diego, I didn't see another location that was nicer than where this condo was located. Also thanks for the speedy return of our security deposit. We hope to be able to come out there again. Best regards, Chris Grant ' - Chris Hamden, CT, 07/28/2013

Fabulous ocean breeze condo!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to owners Dee, and husband Frank, for their immediate responsivness to questions upon our arrival. We escaped 2 months of Arizona's summer heat to enjoy the very comfortable open air condo, Dana Point, beaches, restaurants, parks, pool, people, the wharf, two near-by Trader Joe's, and so much more. The condo is well maintained and furnished as well as stocked in a welcoming manner. We hope to return. Thanks so much!. Barbie and Brent...

Excellent Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo for about 45 days during March and April and loved every minute of it. It is literally right across the street from the entrance to Strands Beach, is very quiet, and had everything I could ever want or need while I was there. Everything in the unit worked perfectly. The ocean breezes blow right through the unit creating a beautiful cool retreat. I would stay here over and over again!

Very Nice Vacation Rental in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month-long stay in this condo. It was a very clean unit with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It had all the amenities we expected and actually exceeded our expectations. It was nicer in person than in the pictures, and 2 of the 3 TVs had recently been upgraded to flat panels. The WiFi connection was good thru-out the unit. We had a couple of minor issues while we were there (trouble with key, Kitchen sink leak), but both were addressed within 2 hours (you can't do any better than that!). The hot water also went out for several hours 1 day and the pool was closed a few days for maintenance, but both of these issues were beyond the unit owner's control and the owner's were very responsive to our inquiries about them. The location is fabulous and you can walk almost everywhere. Overall, the unit is an excellent value for the money. We would definitely come back and stay again.
