We live about 45 minutes north of Capistrano Beach and as soon as we walked through the home's gate, we found ourselves transported a world away into this little slice of heaven: unbeatable location, amazing views and a wonderful home that is one of only a few of the original beach cottages in Capistrano Beach. Updated enough for comfort while retaining the beautiful mid-century post & beam architecture, indoor-outdoor living concept and single-story design (which was important for our group of travelers), we spent our days listening to the waves crash, watching dolphins, pelicans and sandpipers and collecting a huge variety of pebbles that are common on this stretch of sand. (Note: we are not water sport people, but the options are available if it's what you like to do!) It was the perfect semi-staycation for our family, the definition of relaxation and the owner was so accommodating. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Paul. We will definitely be back again.
