About Dana Caple

Greg and I live on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, Canada. We have an air taxi, flight instruction company called FLY! He is a commercial pilot/instructor. I used to be a business owner for 20 years (alternative health), and am now an artist, entrepreneur (still) and enjoy yoga, family, volunteer work and life in general!

Greg and I are in love with our 2nd home in St Jean de Luz! You will find us there from Dec 1 to Apr 1 - 4 very special months!

Dana Caple purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Dana Caple chose St Jean de Luz

We can walk everywhere! It is a magical, very safe haven, with 'eye candy' constantly in front of us! The architecture and history, the art galleries and the cafes - words don't describe St Jean de Luz! ...Ambiance!

What makes this apartment unique

Every morning and evening, we walk the beach. This year (2011) it has been warm enough to just people watch while sitting on the beach. We walk to Hendaye or Biarritz (3 1/2 hours) regularly - actually, we walk everywhere! The spa is always available, and we use it often. Tues and Fri's are market days - fresh vegetables, eggs, and everything else! As we are here 4 months, we use St Jean de Luz as a stepping stone to visit Spain and other areas of Europe. We don't need a car as public transportation: train, bus and air are all so conveniently located. There are many art galleries (I love to paint), and window shopping is extraordinary, or just watching people in the streets is a sport in itself. St Jean is very animated!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dana,



Well, we got home Thursday night and are now back in our groove of daily life in Ohio. Your place in St.-Jean de Luz was everything you said it would be and worked very well for us. Everything worked as advertised. We didn't watch TV at all. We had lunch at Chez Michel and dinner at Chez Pascal's and both were most enjoyable. Good recommendations. We walked all over town, over to Cibore and Socoa, out to the fort and north along the seaside trail. Weather was good. Cloudy every morning, sunny most afternoons...lovely. We slept every night with the window open.



We noticed that the town is a very family oriented vacation spot for the French. We heard almost no English, German or Italian spoken on the street or anywhere. Quite unusual in our experience in Europe. The whole experience was very nice. We wondered what the place is like when you are there over the winter. Is it a winter resort like Florida, with "snow birds" coming down, or is it rather empty of visitors?



Thanks for making your place available to us. We enjoyed our visit.

Loved the Beach - great Holiday!

That was an amazing holiday - thank you for providing such a luxurious yet cozy home! Having the beach and town right at our doorstep made everything so easy! We hiked to Spain, went swimming most days, ate in the best restaurants and - what can I say except please book us again for next year!! Thank you!

It was like being at home!

We loved your place! The beach was wonderful and literally at our doorstep. We had fresh croissants each morning; cooked some of our meals in the fully stocked kitchen, dined out, even hiked to Spain one day! The Basque Country is beautiful! We also appreciated the comfort of your apt..including wifi and free calling. We will certainly be back! Thank you for our dream vacation...truly! R Powell. Canada
