We had a wonderful stay at the Sand Dollar at the end of June 2014. I was a bit apprehensive about using VRBO or HomeAway, since we have always stayed in hotels or resorts. It turned out that I had nothing to be nervous about. The Sand Dollar was even better than the pictures and description online and Todd, the owner, was very easy to work with and provided great suggestions of things the do in the area. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance of Strand Beach, which is breathtaking. We spent most of the week at the beach, with the exception of one day at Disneyland. The condo was well equipped and even had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, a surfboard, a skim board and a cooler that we brought to the beach. The complex also has a nice pool. If you have not visited Dana Point, you should. I feel like it's a hidden gem among the OC beach towns. The harbor is so picturesque. We can't wait to return to Dana Point and the Sand Dollar!
